I can see it now, unchanged team again.

Re: Brighton (H) - match thread

We had a similar result against Norwich 2nd game of the season last year. The reality is we set up much better in the 2nd half and if Wilson bags his sitter who knows. At that point we were 2-0 down and Brighton picked us off on the counter for a third. I’m not saying it flattered them but it doesn...

Re: Brighton (H) - match thread

This feels very harsh to me. He played alright against West Ham and only managed half an hour today, but in both games he was utterly wasted as an orthodox winger in a 4-4-2, he needs to be in a position he can threaten the goal. Whether his attitude isn't right is hard to judge just yet, but he wo...

Re: Other club transfers summer 2020

But recouped immeasurably more than City and Chelsea - people don’t like measuring net spend but Liverpool’s is far lower and you can’t discount it. It’s not even close. Hazard, Morata, Courtois, Costa, Cuadrado, Ake, Matic all sold for good fees in the last 3 years. Plenty of others for up to £10m...

Re: Other club transfers summer 2020

How is he being a hypocrite? Their spending is nothing at all like Chelsea or Man C levels. They've spent over £450m in 5 years. They have one of the most expensive first XI's in the world and now they have another £40m bench player. They might not have wasted money quite as spectacularly as Chelse...

Leeds have conceded 7 goals in 2 games, they won't keep scoring at this rate either. They'll be in trouble soon enough.

Re: Other club transfers summer 2020

Dele Alli isn't good enough, offers very little. They have zero creativity, Son and Lucas are headless chickens and have got no interest in creating for the team only trying to score themselves. Their midfielders are largely defensive players with Ndombele and Alli underperforming and Lo Celso still...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2020)

Well not like me to be wrong about a transfer <laugh> I fully expected it to be Barco as he had a falling out with Stephen Glass and he's been offered out to a few clubs. Hence I thought it was him when I seen about it being a low fee as atlanta want rid of him. Thought they may also have been some...

We really should have fleeced Man Utd the other window with Longstaff.
He was immense against Bournemouth in a more advanced position at the end of last season. He's a forward thinking midfielder rather than a deep lying player, it's why he worked well with Hayden/Diame.

Re: Team for Tuesday - League Cup, Blackburn (H)

That's surely the second most right backs we've started in one game? Probably. I think we had four against Norwich a few years ago. Santon, Perch, Simpson, RTaylor as a back four? Memory is a bit foggy on that one. Yeah that was the horror I was remembering, I'm sure it was 4-2 and we were bullied ...

Re: Other club transfers summer 2020

Newcast....I mean Spurs interested in signing Bas Dost Would be a pointless signing for them. They have got zero creativity in the side, their most creative player against Everton was Harry Kane. They've got a below average midfield and their wingers have no interest in creating chances for other p...

Re: Weekend Football (12-14 Sept)

Sheffield United could be in trouble this year, their only tactic seems to be 'cross it'. I was thinking the same. I know 2nd season syndrome is a bit of a cliche, but I think it might apply in their case this season. They just lack any real quality, especially up front. Their top scorers got 6 las...
