  1. I know, we sure did miss Gueye on Saturday 😉
  2. Gylfi could have easily had 2 assists yesterday too. Richarlison should have finished both free headers. I agree, his performance was poor, but I doubt we’d be talking about it had Richarlison done his job and we’d won 3-0.
  3. There were certainly flashes of a good player but I agree with this. Ideally, Gbamin probably wouldn’t have played until Lincoln in the cup but Schneiderlin’s suspension and Delph’s injury has denied us that luxury. I think he’ll be just fine though.
  4. Mina + Keane just ahead of Bernard. ‘Keana’ wasn’t an option so went for Mina again.
  5. Gbamin was Gana’s replacement so that’s an unlikely scenario. Gana would have done a better job than Gbamin today but that’s not to say that Gbamin won’t develop into a player of Gana’s quality.
  6. Just finished it too - 4 days for me. It was excellent and I’m not a superhero fan - another series coming in 2020 👍🏼
  7. ‘The Boys’ on Amazon Prime is brilliant - 4 episodes in and I highly recommend it.
  8. I think it was more Stoke were dire. I know a few Stoke STHs who had him as their best player - wasn’t hard!
  9. His brother is playing CB for Bolton too - he was probably pretty settled up here and I believe the rumours that his preference was to stay with us.
  10. Azp... (I can’t spell his name either!) won’t be played as 1 of 2 centre backs. He played centre back when Conte was playing 3 centre backs - completely different role. Reece James looks a real prospect though.
  11. Amen! Young man, new league, new culture, new teammates, hardly had a preseason after ACON, not 100% fit (which he said so himself)... I’m sure the plan would have been to start playing him around September time - much like Digne last season but we don’t have that luxury now with injuries and suspensions so we’ll need to be supportive and patient.
  12. Yep - no luxury of giving Gbamin time to bed in. May force a change in system.
  13. All of a sudden we’re looking short of options in central midfield with Delph and Gomes injured and Schneiderlin suspended - maybe we did need Doucoure or another.
  14. Well our squad’s certainly deeper and better balanced than I can remember in a long, long time. We have at least 2 quality players for every position - I’m not writing Gibson off but that’s clearly where we’ve missed out. Add Zouma to this squad and we’d be laughing! Pickford/Lossl Coleman/Sidibé Digne/Baines Keane/Holgate Mina/Gibson Gbamin/Schneiderlin Gomes/Delph Gylfi/Davies Richarlison/Walcott Bernard/Iwobi Kean/DCL/Tosun There aren’t many squads better than that. We just need to shift Mirallas, Martina, Bolasie and Niasse (and Onyekuru) but it really does look like we have a plan at last... a lot of credit to Brands for this and Moshiri of course. It actually looks like future windows will be tweaks rather than 6/7 signings now with this young squad.
  15. He won’t need to unless we get them in the cup...
  16. Completely different player.
  17. Why is it awful? That’s what a player of this quality is worth in the current market. He’s a very creative and will add more speed, power and flair to our attack. He’s not had too many chances at Arsenal but look at their attacking options ahead of him e.g Ozil and Mhykatarian (spelling). When he’s played, he’s looked very dangerous. Only 23 too - we should see his best years.
  18. A wise man once said... 👀
  19. Very good source - reassures me that £60m was a maximum bid for us.
  20. This could be a great signing in my opinion!
  21. My only concern is the lack of centre back cover. I’m not keen on the idea of Rojo but will trust that Brands/Silva know better if something happens here. I’d be massively optimistic about the season ahead if we had kept hold of Zouma or signed equivalent quality but, as it stands, I think we’ve left ourselves short.
  22. I’d have loved him here but the prices quoted were ridiculous... it’s not my money to worry about but still. If there was a deal to be done including Tosun and Bolasie then I wouldn’t have minded it being dressed up as ‘worth £80m’ or whatever but Palace clearly wanted silly amounts and fair play to them - he’s got a contract there and is worth far more to them than any other team. Palace fans must see this as priceless as, without Zaha, they’d be pretty toothless in attack.
