  1. A little relieved that I missed this one. Hard to look at the last week as anything but 4 points dropped. Definitely glad to see that Kean broke his duck, Bernard returned to form, DCL and Holgate keep marching on.
  2. Anyone know of a stream for this one? Overseas on holiday and my home subscription service won't let me play it through a VPN.
  3. Yep, agree with @markjazzbassist and @Aidan. Nerves clearly at play. Work rate/pressing was likely playing it safe and maintaining position - although the pressing was pretty light on from the whole team. Holgate & DCL are perfect examples of what 1st team game time can do for player development. Both were written off by plenty early on. Hope Gordon gets plenty more minutes this year, before a full season loan next year. Skills and nous are there, needs game time and confidence.
  4. Opportunity missed there, should be 2 points off 5th. Kean was about early, but there's no real rapport between himself and DCL. Will take time. Thought Gordon grew into the game. Has good feet, knows how to keep the ball, and got into some good areas. Holgate by far the standout, Pickford also good. Thought DCL's touch was pretty good today, but service was poor and he got more frustrated than usual.
  5. Completely agree there, Walcott lives a charmed life.
  6. Wide mids are giving no outlet/assistance to the centre 2, Walcott the worst of the 2 for mine.
  7. This has to be the game that Gordon gets a decent run out, the cupboard is empty of attacking options. Don't want to see the likes of Niasse, or shoehorning someone else, in over the top. With the tricky games of those above us, have a real chance to end the week a game off 5th.
  8. Think we'll likely drop out/down next year, dependent on final position and any transfer funds.
  9. Disappointed that Gordon is not even on the bench.
  10. Emi Buendia looks a decent option as well.
  11. Surprised that we didn't jump on Weigl. 20m euro seems like a steal and an Ancellotti arm around the shoulder could have gotten him back to his best.
  12. I'm not an advocate of this one, as not sure he's a "best fit" for us. The "done nothing" talk (not only you @chicagoblue) seems well off the mark though. He scored 15 goals & 20 assists across 17/18 & 18/19, in the Bundesliga. That's a bloody decent return for a midfielder. Not sure what's holding him back this year, injuries?
  13. Hope we go in for Boubakary Soumare, we need his sort of presence in midfield.
