    Pretty much everything said in that video has been debunked in this thread multiple times.

    Ellis Simms

    Can't find a thread on him but this seventeen year old lad we got from City last year is banging them in for the under 18's, 18 in ten games so far! A goal every 48 mins. Ably supported by Kieran Phillips (12 in 11) and the team not too shabby either by the look of it.

    It seems Marco has the same ability as Martinez to inspire players but without blowing smoke up their asses.

    Brexit...

    I’m amazed anyone wants to take the job! If May got a poisoned chalice taking over from Cameron, what the hell is this going to be?!

    No pressure than. 2=Only Even Prime Number ...for starters. I'll have a proper look later. Take issue with Rubes on 5. 4 = A in a P of C apples in a pint of cider though. http://www.kgbanswers.co.uk/how-many-apples-does-it-take-to-make-a-pint-of-cider/18120021 4 Aces in a Pack of Cards I'd have thought.

    Well done Rubes, see if Mike can finish the rest. 12 aisle's at the local Sainsburys. 😁😁 That's a brilliant answer Pete, its not right (but I'm sure you knew that).😊

  10. Why not just make the process to enter more personal and, therefore easier, and massively reduce the need for illegal immigration?

    It’s debatable that Davies is a better passer imo. I, for one, have been so happy not to see him fail to pass to a teammate 2 fucking yards away. And playing him means we lose athleticism in the midfield. You’ll still get energy but it’ll be slow as shit energy as he literally can only get close to shadows, and not the physical player. Gana might not be a player to take us into the top 4 but neither is Tom Davies. The sooner we bring in, or bring through, better players the better.

    David silva will be out which is a huge bonus
  16. If you mean it’s wrong to be positive and have belief in your ability then your right. If you mean that being the top scorer in a team and one of the top scorers in the league is strolling around doing fuck all then your right. If you mean it’s wrong to want play at the highest level in your career, and he hasn’t been the first to leave us for that reason and he won’t be the last then your right.

    Marco Silva

    I’ve got no problem with Silva at all he’s trying to play football the right way, he has to look more at his players and replace the ones that aren’t capable of carrying out his plan. Thats exactly how I felt about Martinez but not the clueless Koeman and Allardyce, the advantage Silva has over Martinez is he has a cracking Director of football and an owner who has money, given time to change 4-5 more players for what he wants we will see the team play more to how he wants.

    I dont think its that Silva doesnt have faith in Davies (given that he made him captain and promoted him ahead of Schneiderlin) but more that he sees Davies as 'competition' for Gomes rather than Gana. McCarthy has always been a box to box player. He isnt a fancy passer (not that it is a requisite for a box to box player) but he is an intelligent player who makes more good decisions than bad, such as when to pass, who to pass to, and with good weight. He is a no frills all round, aggressive player that goes about his business largely unnoticed until he isnt there. Gana gave a few good examples yesterday where he found his man with the pass but it was a slow pass, it was bouncing at the player, the other guy was under pressure but he played it anyway. You dont get that shit with McCarthy, or at least you didnt. He just gives you more control on the game whether that be in defensive or offensive situations. Edit: type James Mccarthy Wigan into Google and the top search is a review of 2014 (with us). Its a crap video, but it shows you what I mean bout him driving forward, playing (most) passes into people at the right time, taking people on, creating better angles for passes. His starting position is also quite often a lot further forward than you would ever see from Gana. He used to be an Irish Gomes 😂

    Richarlison

    Your right Aidan it was just more a rant about how we could do with him now, because of what he can do regardless of what people think of him as a person, we payed him to score goals and he earned his money.

    Marco Silva

    Exactly and I said the same thing before the Newcastle game. We created enough chances to win all 3 games but faltered. Its still early days for us and if anything, I think people may have just got a bit carried away.

    Richarlison

    I agree with that John but don’t you think when we had Lukaku it worked, whether you like him as a person or not or think he’s fat and lazy lacks a good touch, he did what good strikers do he stuck the ball in the back of the net on regular basis, with less opportunities and possession being created as now. I’d buy him 20 Big Macs a week if he come back and put the ball in the net like he did before for us.
