I reckon we're down if we lose it, personally.

Re: Update on where you think we'll finish

I think that every team that finished above us last season presently - after all the trading in the summer - have better squads than us. Our final placing will depend on the number of times we beat them. Burnley, Southampton and Watford will flirt with top half finishes, but only in the manner by wh...

This weekend's matches (13/9 onwards)

All being well, a victory secures us a slot in the top 4, this weekend. LFC will beat Newcastle; MCFC will do the same vs Norwich. I fancy that Spurs will beat Palace and Leicester might secure at least a point, if not three, against Maguire and his colleagues. Watford will draw with Arsenal at wors...

Re: Little things in life that make you smile

Smile, or, frankly, gaze in wonder...up to you.

The one man, his dog, and a million stars, is my winner.

Re: Would you sell Declan Rice for £90m?

So what does he excel at? He can win the ball and advance 30-40 yards, with it at his feet. He's done it several times, often with a crunching challenge to get the ball rolling. That's the best part of his game. He also has a knack for tracking the oppo's floating creative player. It's no fluke tha...

Re: ⚽ Aston Villa v West Ham United: Match Thread

Villa are a team, for me, who I can generally respect, even envy, given that, in my lifetime, especially early teens, they won a fair amount (see below) and, importantly, still watch their team in a decent ground they've had for donkeys. When they won the league, they did it with only 14 players and...

Kante is tiny and so was Makelele. He's a good footballer, Bowyer and McCarthy will be good for his development.
Fair point, although they may be rule-proving exceptions?

Re: Josh Cullen

I think it's a credit to the player, as an individual, that he has been recognised for a full cap whilst both on loan and outside of the Prem. Sure, RoI has a smaller pool of talent from which to choose, but, on two levels, he should feel fairly confident about his own abilities. Charlton are doing ...

Re: ⚽ Aston Villa v West Ham United: Match Thread

These international football breaks are stupid, so early into the season.

KO in this match is still nearly 5 days away. Headbanger

Looks like Lanzini came on as a sub vs Mexico, in Argentina's 4-0 victory. Lautaro Martinez snagged a hat-trick

Not sure if SAMs are what you can call an appropriate response.

Re: Would you sell Declan Rice for £90m?

Do fans of other clubs, rate Rice? The ones I've spoken to, think he's a good player, nothing more, nothing less. Are we over rating him, somewhat? The fans I know and speak regularly about football with reckon he's one of our best performers, but think he shows potential, more than raving that he ...

Re: Would you sell Declan Rice for £90m?

How much better than McTominay is he? Take off your C&B specs, before answering.

I am not a big fan of selling our players, but, if someone truly offers £90M, he could be adequately replaced with half that money.
