Re: NFL For Dummies

Man, 49ers really had no business winning this game. Cowboys shot themselves in the foot about 2 dozen times with penalties. And Prescott's lack of awareness on the last play was stunning.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

I can't remember where I saw it yesterday, but it wasn't off a known rubbish source. Said Lingard is asking for 200K/week from us. I assumed then that we had progressed further down the line with MU than I guess we really have.

Re: ✍ Nikola Vlasic

One little worry I have with Vlasic is how one footed he is. He always, always cuts back to his right before shooting or passing. He's not as bad as Yarmolenko and his left foot, but he is in that general vicinity. The more Nikola plays, the more he'll get sussed for it. He doesn't look as helpless ...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Lingard still being pursued At this point I'd plunk an offer on the table, tell him 'there it is... you have our number', and stop pursuing. Jesse's sense of self importance is getting in the way of his making good career choices. He isn't as needed as he was last season. I'd love to have him back,...

It's not just me then :)
So, this is a thing then? Because recently I discovered a show called Time Team, and have found myself binging the show. They just find old pottery but for some reason it's addicting. I thought I'd finally lost the plot altogether.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

I don't think we need a striker until the summer, and then it should be a player who pushes Antonio for the starting position. However, between now and then Mic needs to be able to rest. Bowen has done reasonably well standing in for Antonio, and I keep reading that Vlasic has played the 9 for Croat...

That being said, Vlasic has scored more career goals than Lingard despite being 5 years younger.
50% of them in the Russian league, but I take ur point. I'm rooting for him to replicate that form with us. We need it.

Re: ✍ Nikola Vlasic

Lingard was playing at an unsustainable level. He has never done better in his whole career. The Croatians believe Vlasic is going to be their future star playmaker and he comes from a family of sporting excellence. Once he’s bedded in he will be incredibly influential. The way he uses space is mag...

He’s already coming good. He certainly has a much higher ceiling than Lingard and is already showing he is a more clever player than Benny.

Should have had a couple of penalties as well.
Lingard scored 9 goals for us last season. That's a pretty high ceiling.

Re: Ronnie Spector

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

Can't help but think that would be terrible business. If GSB don't support the team now, they amplify the probability that our best players leave before they do, and if that happens the value of the club surely plummets.
