  1. Sunderland (League Cup Home) Wednesday September 20th

    Good, bad, or ugly doesn't matter. He's a striker for whom goals = confidence.
  2. Sunderland (League Cup Home) Wednesday September 20th

    If that's true, then Koeman is crazy. Holgate has done well while out of position at RB; why now put him at LB? It's beginning to seem he's more likely to play in goal than at his best position at CB.
  3. Kopite Thread

    That's genuinely funny.
  4. Sunderland (League Cup Home) Wednesday September 20th

    I like this team but agree it makes sense only if Besic is left back and Kenny is on the right.

    Give the youngsters a well-deserved start, and find a way for Baines to get a rest. Robles Kenny Keane Holgate Lennon Davies Besic Klaassen Vlasic DC-L Sandro

  9. Manchester United (Away) Sunday September 17

    Driving to Nashville and back today (daughter's 20th birthday), I missed the game. Mid-afternoon, though, I did sneak a peek at the starting line-up, and I couldn't believe it: really really defensive with no real forward. We are giving teams way too much respect. We almost beat United the last time. and we have beaten them in recent years at Old Trafford. There's really no need to set up so defensively. I saw the score, which puts us into the relegation zone for the first time in over a decade, I believe, but it sounds like we weren't as poor as in recent games. Still, speak to any sales guy who fails to make his quota: You can have all the valid excuses under the sun, but if you don't make your numbers, you're in trouble. We now officially have the worst defensive record in the league - with a manager who claims that defence is his strength.
  10. Should we sack our manager?

    I'll guarantee that things will either look a lot brighter or be a lot worse in one month's time. The more data, the better any decision will be.
  11. Ronald Koeman

    Of course there will be exceptions, but I'd choose to play all top teams in the first month.
  12. Ronald Koeman

    I don't agree on this point. The best time to play the top teams is early in the season, before they kick into gear. Just look at Burnley beating Chelsea, for example, while we simply rolled over and gave up. Stoke tied United: Do you think we will tomorrow? Swansea have kept Spurs at bay for over an hour; this time last week, we were three down at home. Watford tied Liverpool, and so did Burnley today: Do you think we could manage that right now?
  13. Man of the Match at Atalanta

    Fat fingers on my phone. The screen updated as I clicked on Sandro, and my vote registered for Vlasic. Anyway, Sandro was one of the few who genuinely seemed to care.
  14. The bottom line is that we brought in a bunch of players for the role occupied by Gareth Barry. Even though he's playing better than them right now, he wouldn't have had a look-in an Everton. IMO, he was wise to make the move. Our loss, sadly, is Pulis' gain.
  15. Feedback (August 2017 changes)

    I see my age in months now appears in green in the profile section shown on the left (just below the word 'Members'). Thanks for giving that away. Mind you, I see the Admins and Stewards have all received their letter from the queen.
