Re: Who Next? The odds

I think Dyche would be a better fit for our current squad (than Howe) and also more likely to gain promotion if we're relegated. Howe's preferred MO is 2 big mobile strikers that can bomb down the middle or out wide - problem is that only Antonio plays that way.Dyche's Burnley is a largely pace-less...

Re: Little things that irritate you

That my 9-year old doesn’t know her times tables. That my 39-year old wife doesn’t know them either, which is presumably why she doesn’t appear to think it’s an issue. She got a B for high school maths - how on Earth was she able to do that? I was helping a friend of a friend's kid with her maths (...

Re: Pablo Fornals

I always find it a lot harder to spot one-footedness on a right footer, whereas it always seems obvious on a left footer. Not sure why. I think left-footers tend to run with the ball in a different way and to shield it in a different way because they are always naturally wanting to take the ball on...

Re: VAR - yes or no ?

[quote="GaryP" ]Things like the England 'goal' should be like umpires call in cricket . I am not saying that because it was an England goal but his toe was literally offside. It was not a clear and obvious error. If the players body is visible from the linesman's position then call it offside. Needs...

Re: VAR - yes or no ?

Also the idea that VAR will favour those outside of the big 6 is a pipe dream. It will still favour the media darlings, probably more so, and those 7 minutes will become 5 or 10 depending on who is winning. I agree. I remember after that Derby goal in the Cup (against Southampton?) was disallowed a...

Re: Boa Morte (non WHU)

Poor old McKnightmare was the worst, surely?
What other player ever had every fan crapping themselves any time the ball went near him?

LBM was headless chicken,more than dead snake but at least he put a shift in.

Ilan was far better than Zaza or Callieri or Mido or Boriello.

If there is a genuine offer out there (as opposed to click-bait journalism) and Arnie fancies it
then get rid, else face the possibility of further tantrums and disruptions.

Apparently a typo has been found in the Irish version of the King James Bible (GENESIS 6)

Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he
