Re: Legal Advice

Unfortunately you get the justice you pay for. Those who can afford to roll the dice and take it through the disclosure process, incurring their own costs and a potential liability for prosecution costs may find that they have a winnable case. If they don’t they pay up and walk away. Those who can’t...

Re: January 2022 Transfer Window

I watched Longelo in the EL too, thought he did well. I also thought he had the easiest job of all four of the young defence as he basically got to play as a winger. I didn't see anything that would make me think the coaches who know him would be making a mistake to let him go. Well you can only pl...

Not for me.

What made Lingard so effective for us, was his pace.

Eriksen is/was a great player, but he's never been quick off the mark, plus we have a good selection of pacemakers
Could tempt Eriksen

Why are we not all over Botman?
I think he’d be well up for coming to us, he’s always browsing this forum!

Good to see I 8 Chavs get Bowen’s match shirt at the end there, he’s been working on that cardboard sign all over Christmas.

Gutted I didn't check this before recording, but I hope this becomes something Jack has forced people to see, can imagine it being something that absolutely ruins one part of watching football! :crylol: On reflection it was a shuffle rather than a jump but yes I am now instinctively looking for it!...

Re: The Curious Case of Rice and Soucek

Against lower table opposition I think there is a legitimate question to be asked as to whether we need both on the pitch at the same time.Certainly, when trying to force a win, I would hook one of them if all square with 30 to go against teams below us. And it wouldn't be Rice.He is comfortaby a b...

Re: The Curious Case of Rice and Soucek

Soucek's passing isn't the best, but I remember him poppng a long range cracker that led to a goal at the weekend. His forward passing definitely seems to be improving. Some good balls yesterday and the pass to Bowen v Southampton for our second was perfect. We seem to have a really good coaching s...

Re: Declan Rice

He is 22. Time will tell what kind of player he develops in to. My point is that it is silly to stifle that. Why not enjoy the player he is becoming. Most of the highlights this season have been Dec bringing the ball forward and he is superb at it. The players around him also have responsibility for...

Re: Declan Rice

It’s a really difficult one. I love Declan and I’ve really tried not to after Joe Cole broke my young heart in 2003. I think the reality is, if you could guarantee that the fee received would be reinvested on quality and/or quality players received in return as Stevey above said, then the sensible t...

Re: Other PL Festive Fixtures - 26th Dec -2nd Jan

Tielemans conceded 2 penalties and didn't get booked for either. Makes that Coufal decision at Arsenal even more annoying. At least be consistent.

I disagree. He showed some good moments in the first half and was anonymous in the second before he was substituted.

Jury still out for me but he should get plenty of opportunities over the next 6 weeks (if the football continues...)

You can't judge the bloke on that game yesterday, with the supporting cast he had, against a team who looked built to stifle.
Agreed. Was on odd match. I’m sure he’ll get the opportunities to prove himself over the next couple of months so fingers crossed he steps up and shows his quality.

Re: ✍ Nikola Vlasic

Feels like this has been the case in every game he's played for us. He may actually end up looking better against an improved opponent who gifts a little more space. Clearly got some ability though. Definitely a wait and see. Is that not why he was brought in though, as an attacking midfielder to h...
