Re: ✍ Nikola Vlasic

No, I think Sully bullied Moyes into signing him There is no way this is true. Vlasic with his Everton connections is clearly a Moyes signing. He seems to have the attitude Moyes would like, which makes his treatment of him baffling, but it's clutching at straws to blame it on Sullivan. Benrahma is...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

or alternatively he can play a year in the Fizzy (I don't think they'll drop though) and get a huge signing on fee. he'll still be in Sir Gareth's plans and we're well short of TOP CLASS keepers in general so it's a win win for him imvho. I still reckon he'll go for upward of 20M last year or not. ...

Re: Will Leeds Suffer 2nd Season Syndrome (non WHU)

I don’t really think it is second season syndrome I just think they have been decimated by injuries and often to key players. Bamford barely playing is a huge miss for them, whilst Phillips has also missed large chucks of the season. They are two massive players for them and they’ve been far from lo...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

I wonder where the papers get 12M for Pope from ? I doubt Burnley. they got 25M for bloody Chris Wood for goodness sake...I know that was a release clause but chuffin' Nora..... £12m does seem cheap for Pope but if he is in the last year of his contract then Burnley will need a bit of a bidding war...

Re: European qualification for 22/23 - what are the chances?

I think our players would relish playing another year on European Thursday. The fans should welcome it as well. Anyone thinking we shouldn’t want Europa Conference is getting well above their station and letting two good seasons go to their head. Yes we would prefer Europa League but any European c...

Re: Other Games May 7th to May 12th

By all accounts Coventry has been excellent for MK Dons, so at worst based on his current performances he’s a very good player for a league 1 team. Realistically come the summer we are going to need to sign at least one centre mid. I think there is a spot to have Coventry as 4th choice, especially a...

We certainly wouldn't be throwing a game against the worst team in the league. To think we can get 6th is a bit Spursy...the Premier League will ensure Manure gets European football next year...
Another very strange post.

Re: ⚽ Norwich City vs West Ham Utd: match thread

Soucek has no doubt been rested because Moyes is expecting us to have most of the ball and wants more technical players in midfield who can unlock the door of a packed defence. We all know Soucek’s passing is his weakness, so he’s not suited to playing teams in a low block. I guess the counter argum...

How are the kids ever gonna be tested if we don't play them?

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Maguire is a decent player, if we signed him he’d start every game and crucially add the ability for our CBs to bring the ball out from the back. Yes he’s had a horrendous season and his stock has plummeted but last season he was Man U’s most important defender when they finished 2nd. He was also in...

Re: ✍ Nikola Vlasic

Sell him at the 1st available opportunity. Really don't like what I see whenever he plays. Doesn't do anywhere near enough and it looks like it's mostly been that way his entire career at the highest level. Sell him and claw back back as much as we can and take the hit it on the chin. The part in b...

Re: ✍ Nikola Vlasic

One of the few criticisms I have of Moyes this season is how he’s used Vlasic. Obviously he hasn’t hit the ground running but he’s had a couple of starts in the prem where I thought he did alright without setting the world alight. In those games though he’s typically subbed first and then not seen f...

Creswell would be starting left because whether Johnson is fit or not, it’s right back where the decision needs to be made.

Re: Other Fixtures (30th April - 5th May)

I find myself in the uncomfortable position of wanting a Spurs win today. Which means they will fail. If we beat Norwich Leicester would need a minimum of 13 points, likely 14 points from their last 18 and hope we lose to Brighton. That seems pretty unlikely given how inconsistent Leicester are in ...

Fofana looks a proper talent. Huge injury which was a shame.
This is a good shout.

Fofana is the exact sort of CB I’d love us to sign this summer.

The Wolves result also means there is less pressure on guaranteeing Europe. Playing a rested team should also help us ...

For sure I wasn't arguing against you Stu!

Re: Who Will Beat Us To Top 4?

Yes, but we were lucky we had a relatively easy group that allowed us to rotate. Moyes, rightly so, judged the quality of the opposition and picked teams accordingly - and remember we also had League Cup at the the time and those 'cup' players were doing very well When the opposition got tougher an...
