Re: FAC / Weekend's Games

Regardless of your opinion of either club, this isn't a good outcome for West Ham IMHO Spurs had much more to lose by not qualifying for the ECL than Arsenal had to gain If Spurs don't qualify, they would probably lose Conte and Kane and almost certainly regress. Now they are likely to push on If A...

Re: FAC / Weekend's Games

I think it's impressive that Arteta is such a dislikeable scrotum, and has turned Arsenal into such a horrible, cheating, **** bag of a team, that I'm actively rooting for Tottenham.

To outdo many years of hate towards Tottenham in such a short space of time is impressive.

Let's say this Newcastle side had been in place from August onwards, where do we imagine they might have finished?
Other than possibly tonight they've generally only beaten teams in position 8-20, so probably top 10 but not much better.

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Dawson moved to the Midlands (West Brom) when he was 20.

Would be pretty random to be desperate to go back North, 12 years later when he's playing at the highest level of his career.

I like him, but I don't really know just what is position is. He plays up front in a 4-4-2 for Burnley, but is he a forward, or attacking midfielder ? When they signed I thought he was a left back
I think he's a winger by trade who was converted to a Left Back for spells at Lyon.

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Check the Villa highlights out. That is what you are getting if you sign Ollie Watkins. It’s essentially another Antonio, in a bit of a different play style. Scores a goal through being a nuisance and a menace to a defender. Scuffs a golden chance easily wide that a natural finisher plonks in the b...

Does today's point mean we will finish higher if Man Utd draw and we win?
Yes.

If we win Man Utd need to win to keep us out of 6th.

Re: Brighton & Hove Albion vs West Ham Utd: match thread

So you don’t think Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd deserve to be in the top 6 then? As none of them could beat Brighton at the Amex this season. Before the Man Utd win their home results were draws to Southampton and Norwich and defeats to Tottenham, Liverpool, Aston Villa and Burnley. The Chelsea dra...

Re: Brighton & Hove Albion vs West Ham Utd: match thread

18 home league games for Brighton. 4 wins, 7 draws and 7 losses. 17 home league games for Frankfurt. 4 wins, 7 draws and 6 defeats. Almost identical. The reason I was always pretty confident we’d get something from the Man City game is because their style of play suit us more. Strange thing to say ...

Re: Brighton & Hove Albion vs West Ham Utd: match thread

Funny enough I think the opposite. I think we’ll both lose. Brighton are the Premier League equivalent of Eintracht Frankfurt. We’ll huff and puff and they’ll target our weaknesses at the back. Even their home form is fairly similar to Frankfurt’s! Their home form is awful. 17th in the table. Frank...

Re: FAC / Weekend's Games

The dream of an Everton relegation still persists!

Though I can't see any of the three doing well next year, Burnley will still be Burnley, Leeds have defensive issues too big to fix and Everton have a subpar manager.

Just wondering whether we can send the whole team to work on his dad's farm this summer; it's done wonders for his stamina and strength.
I'd certainly be sending Benrahma that way!

He's the one the big boys will be targeting.
I could see Liverpool fancying their chances of nabbing him
Fortunately they signed Diaz and now I don't think there's room for him there.

I can't see United winning, if we can beat Brighton I am confident we will be 6th. It is of course a big IF but we have so much more to play for and we are the better team
They're 17th in the league on home form, we really should be beating them.

But that doesn’t fit the narrative!
