Re: Blizzard article on Ben Arfa

Ben Arfa is the definitive case of 'what could have been'. I loved him when he signed for us, but everyone seems to forget all of those games where he'd just stand around doing nothing, or try to beat 4 defenders on his own rather than passing it, or coming back to pre-season a stone overweight. I ...

Gonna miss the game but hoping we get a result. We need to be winning this kind of game. Also racking my brain, if this is the second, what's the shortest journey for a league game? Can't work it out unless you count home games <laugh>
Burnley is slightly closer <ok>

Re: Blizzard article on Ben Arfa

I guess my first reaction to hearing him called a "wasted talent" is that most often that kind of accusation would be associated with a player who was a complete bust, and not one who has over 350 senior caps, over 65 goals, 13 domestic trophies, and 15 caps for one of the top nations in the world. ...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (January 2019)

MLS owners need to be careful, in the world of football they are a tiny presence, it's great they are getting some good players in to the league but how long will it last if clubs hold out for stupid fees, most in South America will want a stepping stone to European clubs and if they try to play ha...

Re: Protest Plans

Apparently Sundays' protest has been postponed until February, after the transfer winfow closes, due to Ashleys' statement regarding the sale of the club. You mean somebody maybe thought that if there's a chance there are potential buyers, they would rather see people in seats than empty ones? Craz...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (January 2019)

Although I'm happy it seems like we might be signing someone decent, I often think that international goals-per-games give a better view of how a player will fair with scoring in the Prem when coming from a lower standard league. Obviously it's not everything and there's exceptions but 0 in 12 for ...

It's been awhile... https://www.grandoldteam.com/forum/threads/everton-v-newcastle-united-preview-match-report-motm-poll.105643/ It's pretty well known Everton fans have shadow syndrome from Liverpool being the dominant club in the area; hence their affinity with Sunderland.

Re: Sky: Peter Kenyon in talks about taking over NUFC

Been thinking about this today, Ashley has made everyone so sceptical over the years, but surely it would be against his interests to **** around so publicly, he needs to come across as a professional businessman when talking like this as it could impact peoples willingness to do business with him....

Re: Transfer window takeover saga 2018

Can't please people. People get mad if there are no rumours of people sniffing around to buy, they get mad if rumours start of prospective buyers, they get mad if Ashley goes silent for years at a time, they get mad if he talks, they get mad he avoids the stadium, they get mad when he's in his box. ...

Re: Protest Plans

Mentioned nothing about protest on MOTD The camera zoomed in on a handful of people walking in late to their seats and commentary acknowledged it - though in a pretty dismissive way noting how few appeared to be doing it.

Re: Has Ashley lowered his asking price for NUFC to £300m?

I mean any public comment from the club/Ashley is better than nothing... but, as always, a large pinch of salt taken here. This. I cannot help but think its just a PR stunt to get us of his back for a while. I really don't think he cares about fans on his back. He's had them there for years and don...

Re: Weekend Football 30 Nov - 02 Dec

Agreed, it was a fun and wild match, even if the quality of finishing was bad. And I had a great laugh at the howler of a winning goal and Kloppe running on and off the pitch! Yeah ditto, it was funny how Van Dijk had turned away in disgust after ballooning his shot only for Pickford to drop a clan...

I didn’t think that Liverpool v Everton was a bad game, especially the first half. Lots of Ayothe levels of finishing tho.

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v West ‘am

Tend to agree with people. I really think he's regressed over the past few seasons, but that said, it's not his fault that he's starting at CAM nearly every week, and hasn't had a lick of competition for the role. Also agree that effort isn't his issue, but rather he doesn't seem to have the same co...

Almirón plays for Atlanta not Atalanta. This is the correct team https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlanta_United_FC#Players That was understood, but I think that was the point of OT's original point, that instead of buying Almiron from Atlanta, we'll loan someone from Atalanta.
