Re: Other Teams' Stuff

How in the hell do you ban heading in games? and, beyond that, how shit will football be if players can't head the ball? what next, boxers not allowed to take head shots during sparring rounds? Yeah. There's already a culture of avoiding head shots in sparring. Carl Frampton did it. I think he even...

Re: Assessing our squad

I think you’re being inconsistent there, Sid. On the one hand, you criticize managers who just lump the ball up to the forwards. But then you say we could win without great tactics or a philosophy, just by having better players. But that’s a recipe for just lumping the ball up to our famous forward...

Re: Other Teams' Stuff

Don't know where to put this so I'll stick it in here Football in England to introduce new rules on heading this summer https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2021/mar/26/football-in-england-to-introduce-new-rules-heading-this-summer I reckon they're gonna phase out heading entirely in the next 5 years....

Re: Assessing our squad

We don't need a perfect 11 and bench either, we only have to better than the opposition, who so far haven't strengthened. Kane and Haaland look to be staying put. The one's with more to offer than last season are Chelsea under Tuchel. They've got a lot of talent that haven't got going in the Prem ye...

Re: Assessing our squad

Like you Sid, I'm proper buzzing for this season. Haven't been this excited in years tbh. We've signed two top players this season, Bruno before that. I'm still saying jury is out on AWB and Maguire but I think Varane should be able to let Maguire play the role he's best at (the enforcer/agressor) ...

Re: Jadon Sancho - Welcome.

Right winger: Check Good passer: Check High IQ: Check Dormund player: Sigh... check. Hopefully he breaks the jinx. He's English too so there shouldn't be any issues in fitting culturally. We need him to hit the ground running. After Kagawa and Mhikitaryan, let’s hope third time is lucky buying this...

Re: Assessing our squad

Ole has improved the quality a lot since the team he inherited from the hoofer. Sancho, Varane, Bruno, Cavani Vs Lindelhof, Fred, Sanchez, 100m on Lukaku. Then you had Jones, Smalling, Young, Valencia, and fucking Fellaini that were playing far too often. But Ole has ditched em. He's also getting w...

Re: Assessing our squad

Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Shaw That's a brilliant defence Wan-Bissaka is limited going forward but at times unbeatable in defence. Varane world class. Maguire world class but for his lack of pace that's been compensated for. And Shaw is the best left back in Europe since Ole turned his career ar...
