  1. rafa didn't sign riviere, did he? joselu was his donkey
  2. against watford we sat back and panicked as soon we we scored and they deservedly equalised in the end. we would have beaten norwich with 11 men, i think
  3. we've been shite pretty much all season. there have been a few games where we were unlucky with red cards injuries, mistakes leading to goals etc but it's generous to suggest we've been better than a number of teams. we should have beaten man u, we beat burnley. i can't remember many others that we deserved to win.
  4. Nobody told me drinks event was against the rules, says man who set the rules
  5. no doubt about your last point. i just wonder if we should be aim to get in at least one CB with premier league experience given the importance of the position. easier said than done obviously.
  6. is anyone concerned by the alleged central defensive targets. carlos, who diego doesn't rate, which is good enough for me sounds like he has a mistake in him. and botman, a 22 year old unproven outside the french league
  7. Agree about willock but I’m holding out hope that there might be a player in there if he’s used in the right system. He clearly isn’t capable of playing centre mid in a two. (Particularly when the other player is Shelvey) but he looked good in a midfield three last season when his job was predominantly to support the striker and arrive late in the box. Fuck knows if that was a one off but he has to be worth trying if we fail to bring in central midfielders before the weekend (we don’t seem to have been linked with many?)
  8. Willock for Longstaff helps in the short term. At least then you have two players with legs in him and Joelinton who can potentially try to get up and support Wood. Shelvey needs to be replaced too tbh but I’d be amazed if we sign three players this week.
  9. It would be a fairytale but it’s a massive punt isn’t it? Bringing back a bloke who had to be resuscitated? It usually ends careers. I’m sure there is a much higher number of players suffering heart problems today than ever before. A cynic might suggest the game is awash with performance-enhancing drugs.
  10. Fucking hell. Sounds perfect then. Another Boumsong/Bramble to partner Lascelles
  11. I think Howe will be backed next season even if we do go down. I’d fancy him to guide us back up at the first time of asking once he’s been able to populate the squad with the type of player he needs to play his style of football.
  12. We’re two games away from that looking like decent form
  13. It’s a headline writer’s dream. Eriksen back from the dead to play for a club with one foot in the grave.
