    Samir Nasri

    Five years ago, yeah! Now, no thanks.
  2. We will be practicing both, on a very regular basis. We just aren’t very good at either.
  3. There is no way the team don’t practice corners. Carlos Carvahal was on Goals on Sunday a while back and said Marcos teams are always well drilled on set pieces. I believe that, I think they all know what Marco wants them to do. The problem is what he wants them to do has been zonal.

    You have Nando’s in the states Mark. I saw one in DC a few days ago.

    Things to do in Washington DC

    It’s mad, I’ve just looked back at a photo I’ve taken and it’s just so strange.
  6. I landed in DC yesterday, only staying for a few days before moving on. Im hoping we’ve got a local or two on the forum who might be able to recommend a few places to go. Obviously I know the White House before anyone states the obvious, and all of the buildings and monuments around it. Went to a place in Georgetown last night called the Good Stuff Eatery, oh my god the food was amazing! One of the best burgers I’ve ever had, and I’ve had way too many. Open to suggestions fellas.

    Haha no, but it is definitely the shittest embassy in the city.
  8. I think so too. Better off if we have one close to 20 and another two over 10. Spread them around the front four as much as possible. Richalison could get 20, Theo and Gylfi should both get more than 10. If you can get Tosun into double figures and a few from Bernard, DCL and Niasse to top them up it would be much healthier. It was great having Lukaku score lots of goals for us, but when you lose that one player it causes too much damage.

    Things to do in Washington DC

    We went to the aerospace museum yesterday, mostly because we were walking near by and it was so hot and they have air con. Really enjoyed it though, as a nervous flyer I found it really interesting. Thanks Steve. I wasnted to go in the natural history museum and see some big dinosaur bones but we spent too long in the other museum so missed closing time. We leave DC today, but it’s a really interesting city. It’s so strange to see so many modern buildings in between old buildings. The Mexican Embassy appears to be build not only next to an old building, but sort of over the top of it. Really freaked me out. It’s like something from Inception. Off to Florida now, just got to avoid Hurricane Michael.
  10. I’m more concerned about who will be solid at the back and in midfield. We have a few players who score goals, would always take one more though. For now I’d stick with the front four who started against Leicester.

    Theo Walcott

    I think Theo knows that ship has sailed. He’s a winger who scores quite a few goals, stick to what he’s good at.

    Did the Lincoln memorial yesterday and Arlington cemetery (mind blowing place, almost half a million graves for servicemen and women) and the White House. One thing really stood out to me and Mrs Stevo, they don’t really get the idea of “Secret Service” here. Now these are fellas at the top of their game, with a big job on their hands. But they are supposed to be “secret”. They have a bloody big square on their chest with Secret Service on it. Then the card they use, I expected big black SUVs, nope, white ones with Secret Service on the side. Someone needs to tell them what Secret means.

    Marco Silva (manager)

    Completely agree mate. Never throw an extra defender on for me, just put players in positions with different skill sets and fresh legs.

    Cenk Tosun

    We don’t have enough strikers to sell any of them.

    Theo Walcott

    When Marcel and Marco are looking at where the squad needs to be strengthened I doubt they will be looking at the right wing.

    Gylfi Sigurðsson

    Bailey hit the nail on the head. Got to moan about something.

    My parents brought me here as a kid (24 years ago, makes me feel so old) but I didn’t appreciate it. Looking forward to seeing a bit of it today.

    Gylfi Sigurðsson

    He expected.... wow! Haf can read minds now. I wonder if you can read what I’m thinking?

    Marco Silva (manager)

    Yes, he brought on fresh legs for Theo. I would call it cautious or negative. It’s massively positive for me. We need to win the game, he did what was needed. Wouldnt even think about Sam anymore Steve, let it go mate.

    Gylfi Sigurðsson

    How about when he tried to play in Tosun when he could have ran in and got a shot away himself? No one seems bothered when Richarlison has a shot that goes no where when not even looking if a pass isn’t on at times. I really don’t see the issue with Theo at all.

    Marco Silva (manager)

    I was made up to see him make some defence minded changes at 2-1, even against ten men, just doing it that once showed the difference between him and Roberto. Managed the game really well.

    Theo Walcott

    I’m baffled by anyone having an issue with him. Since the day he signed he’s been one of our most consistent performers, always a threat and has scored goals. If he’s fit, he plays. Maybe it’s no coincidence that he isn’t flying into tackles, and isn’t picking up as many injuries as he has in the past? No bad thing for me. A player learning how his body reacts to things and adapting to suit. Maybe if he had a fancy name we would want to keep him in the first team.

    What makes you think Theo is the weak link?

    Reputation Voting

    I voted to keep it, only my personal preference. I’ve been posting here for a long time, but as mentioned already this does declutter the forum. I used to move posts like “this” or “agree” to the rubbish post thread to keep it tidy. One word replies don’t really do much for anyone. I don’t think I’ve ever made a post and gone back to look at how many greens or reds it’s received. Its also worth nothing, for anyone who doesn’t know how to see their points, it’s next to your name when you post. For the record I think only John Burns has had a red reputation. As an advocate of good mental health I understand the concerns for other people’s wellbeing, it’s great that we have so many members who care about each other. We can look after each other and disagree at the same time.
