Re: David Gold and David Sullivan, Rich Energy and Force India

Does this mean our players will start having to appear with a can in hand saying, 'He's made the best British gangster film, and now he's part of the best energy drink brand' <thumbs up>?

Re: ⚽ Leicester City v West Ham Utd: match thread (27/10)

I would definitely have taken a point before kick off with Arnie also out, let alone after Noble being sent off. Very good result at a team doing well at home.

Re: ⚽ Leicester City v West Ham Utd: match thread (27/10)

Yeah, where is Perez?

Take that many attacking first teamers away from any side and they'll struggle. If we get anything at all from this I think it'll be a massive rear-guard action and a headed corner from a CB.

Re: ⚽ Leicester City v West Ham Utd: match thread (27/10)

I'm not feeling optimistic about this one. 2-0, and I think we'll come away debating how we're going to improve our attack prior to Jan. Aside from the injuries, it's concerning that Arnie is playing with a knee injury. Even if it isn't causing further harm, it surely must be restricting him to some...

Re: Things you've always wanted to know......

Everton have bought a few players in his position since his injury though, haven't they? I can understand Everton wanting to move him on, but I'm baffled that a £25m player, who not so long ago was highly rated, didn't get better offers from the prem or abroad. Seems a massive drop to me. Sign of t...

Injury or not, how come the recently £25m Yannick Bolasie is now playing on loan in the championship?

Re: Little things that irritate you

Fireworks aren't the problem though, it's the ***** they sell them to. Nothing wrong with a well-organised, professional display. Agree -- that's why I think they should require a licence. The big problem I have is them being on sale, heavily promoted, relatively cheaply, to just anyone. If the sup...

Re: Little things that irritate you

The other side of the coin is being on a large conference call when your name comes up and the others don't realise you're on the call. I've had a lot of fun with that one.

Re: Andy Carroll

The frustrating thing is that we'll never know how good Carroll could have been. We've seen, on very rare occasions, Carroll perform effectively despite not having played or trained for months. He has almost unparalleled aerial ability, more skill than is often credited, and he can be very useful de...

Re: Declan Rice

Has been a class above the last few games. Really developing into some player, which is probably why the whole contract situation is making people knicker wet. He's got 2 years left, plenty of time to get things sorted. Chill boys, chill. The trouble, IMO, is that it's not helpful to create a diffi...

That pic of Kevin Friend in the news item. Held just a little lower and it might have been even more embarrassing for him.

Re: Little things in life that make you smile

Small beer in the scheme of things, but three things made me smile. Finishing my Creative Writing MA, celebrating it with a bottle of single malt, and further rewarding myself by shopping for a new gaming PC. It's a bit like Christmas, but without guests and unwanted shower gel gift sets.

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

What with that and Anderson's comments about how much he had to thank Mr Sullivan for his signing... It's as transparent as getting players to say nice things about his Krays film.
