    General Election

    Think they raise a good point that they should really give their constituencies a chance to stand by them or stick with the party they voted them in for. The antisemitism seems very odd. I don't know enough to really comment on it beyond I've never witnessed any in Liverpool.

    General Election

    Perhaps the most telling thing of all is that not a single one of the seven splitter had the decency to call a by-election after quitting the Labour Party. These cynical opportunists have cynically ridden into Westminster on the Labour brand, using the unpaid support and activism of thousands of ordinary Labour members to get there. And now they're selfishly turning their backs on these people in a desperate last-ditch effort to prevent Labour coming to power and bringing ruinous Tory austerity dogma, public service cuts, and wage repression policies to an end. Even the Brexity Tory MPs Douglas Carswell and Mark Reckless had more integrity, because when they quit Cameron's Tory party to join UKIP in 2014 they both called by-elections out of respect for their constituents. https://anotherangryvoice.blogspot.com/2019/02/the-7-right-wing-pro-austerity-labour.html?fbclid=IwAR1EsqsOPL6AmsRLhnURbvtEJjYHpqXnq9kli9h1rhNoibZusyM_r22w7Uo&m=1
  3. He's not exactly done anything since he joined us. The club has paid him more than any other, even gave him a payrise without merit, and raised his profile. What has he done in return? He's not earned his move like say Lukaku who scored shed loads of goals and helped raise our profile and contributed to our highest points total in over two decades. If anything he's been the main stay in a team that is now getting referred to as a nothing team. Agree wholeheartedly with that last bit.
  4. Looking at the stadium comparisons I'd like us to extend a bit to match the new Stamford bridge would squeeze in those extra couple of thousand seats. Can't fully tell from the prints but looks like it'll be quiet modern looking. Would have preferred a stadium with the old red brick in a similar design to the one he's already done with the viewing window into the stadium.

    Cheers Shukes, hopefully we'll win our next two and throw all the statistics out the window.

    Watford (Away) Saturday February 9th

    Compare our form 2-2-5 under Koeman when he was sacked to the current rut under Silva 3-2-9 and its hard to comprehend why one was sacked and the other is still here. Worth noting Koeman played five games (losing four) against the top 6 compared to Silva's four (lost all four). Edit. A bit more food for thought. Silva is on course to get 46 points based on our current points total per game. This would be our lowest in over a decade. Or if the current slump continues we could be relegated, bare in mind we've got 5 games against the top 6 that we tend to lose against, we got a draw against Chelsea though so a fair estimate would be 1 point expected. Discounting the defeats from the top 6 in the recent stats then we are 3-2-5 against the rest of the league, using this form as an indicator we'd get roughly 2-1-3 in the other 6 games, 7 points. So roughly 8 points would give us a total of 41 and a squeaky bum. I'm hopeful of more points than that but purely on blind optimism. Surely we're due a win against the top 6 ideally the red shite and we can't keep conceding silly goals but I'm not gonna get my hopes up too much.

    From the stats Eriksen gets on the ball twice as much so in theory has twice as much opportunity to find that pass for an assist. But from watching them Eriksen is a lot sharper and tends to be a step ahead of the play whereas Sigurdssen is more reactive to the play. Both have similar pace but it's a lot rarer for people to mention it as a weakness about Eriksen other than to say that's possibly the reason he's not got a big move yet. Whereas people will mention Sigurdssen's lack of pace to be a reason he's struggles up get more involved in games. As such Eriksen gets the ball in more space for himself and delivers the dangerous pass faster and with a better delivery (not that Sigurdssen isn'tt too shabby at passing the ball either). Mainly the first two points help him get more assists by giving the potential scorer more space and time to get the goal.

    Just shows you have to watch a player rather than look at the stats. Eriksen is a class above, I'm surprised the elite clubs haven't come in for him yet whereas we'd be lucky to get Sigurdssen off our wage bill.

    No you never, you've added the pep stuff yesterday. Now you're putting 5 points, those 5 points could've been said straight away if it wasn't half said in your head instead. Likewise you've added to this with your point 4 and 5. Regarding point 2 and 3 you've not explained why these players need more time considering they are all better and playing better than the players they come into replace. Or why it's exceptable for Silva to hide behind the 'mess' when the last manager done a better job with a more disjointed squad. Point 1 isn'ttt really an argument. I can't remember you saying the same for Sam Allardyce. Plus the question is why should he get more time, there's no answer to the why. Point 5 is a fair reason you don't want to be a sacking club. I don't agree with it as he's underperforming I'd rather have a new manager come in but that's how a forum works, someone says I believe this because and another says I'd prefer or adds why they agree too. No need to throw insults and in general just be an arse about it. If it gets heated fair enough but from my posts and yours, you've just been an idiot for no reason. Nothing to do with my view I was simply trying to comprehend yours. Seriously get a friend to read back all the posts with you because I give up trying to explain/discuss as its like pulling teeth. BTW you started this off with a condescending "It's almost touching how much you cling to this 'massive upgrade' bollocks." so to then call me condescending and throw insults because I've asked you to explain your argument is fucking brilliant.

    He reminds me a lot of Sigurdssen in that sense (and more fortunately in his technical ability too). Hopefully he'll have a bit more to him after getting a few more kicks in the Championship and impose himself on the pitch for us.

    Because that's how forums work. People voice their opinions and what they're based on. I don't just say Gana should be sold, I argue why. All you said was Silva should have more time, there was no why, or if there was it wasn't clear. Any how, how many digs is that now? Look back at your posts to me and mine to you. What an arsehole you are. Tried to keep it nice but you can just fuck off now, I genuinely didn't realise I was talking to someone so thick. If you can't see how poorly worded, poorly formed your opinion has been put forward there's no helping you. Fuck me for having the audacity to ask someone on a football forum why that they based their opinion on. All I was asking is why you would trust Silva to manage this club any longer. (Kendall is before my time but I know the other three all won stuff to earn their next job whereas Silva was sacked for not doing a good enough. They had a proven reputation. Pep was poor in his first season but he spoke out during it. He acknowledged the problems and that he was adjusting to English football. Silva has been here for 3 seasons yet only has one tool in his bag.) You're argument is purely time based. Not based on him showing any sign of being competent or other. Purely time. You could have just said that and saved me a head ache trying to grasp where you were coming from.

    I'm not arsed about being right or wrong. All I'm trying to understand is what your belief is based on. How are you forming your opinion. Healthy debate, condescending? Seriously read your posts back.

    The closest thing you've put to an explanation is that he's only had 7 months. I've asked you to expand why you think he'd do any better with more time considering what he's done so far. Seriously read your posts back as you must be saying half your argument in your head. Since last season: - 4 starters have been replaced with better players - the team is more balanced than last year - the manager had a full preseason to implement his ideals Given the three points above compared why should Silva be given more time? Bear in mind the last manager was sacked yet was doing a better job than the current. What has Silva done to justify more time even though he's getting us less points? What's he implemented? What's he improved?

    https://mobile.twitter.com/5livesport/status/1093981473802137600 Read your posts back and highlight how you've been clear as even this post isn'tt that clear. Not even having a go, probs got dyslexia myself but I'm self aware my English isn'tt the clearest. I've no idea which players you mean. As far as I'm aware Digne, Zouma, Gomes and Richarlison are all starters. Bernard missed three out of our first four at the start of the season but other than that he's only not took part in one game. It's only Mina who hasn't made much of an impact. Alladyce got us 8th and if you extrapolate his points per game he may have got us 7th. He made do with the shit show yet wasn't given any more time. Why would you give Silva more time with the squad that now is more balanced and has better players? Silva has had 7 months, what improvements has there been to justify giving him more time to implement them more? What's he doing as a manager to deserve more time?

    Add to that, that last year albeit from little game Vlasic looked to have a lot more to him as well. Crazy that we owned down nearly £30m for the 5th (potentially 7th if you include Sig and Bolasie) choice.

    If not for the goal I'd have been asking Mike for an extra vote as him and Davies were excellent.

    Manchester City (Home) Wednesday February 6th

    I didn't realise it in real time but from the replay there's massive questions why Gana isn'tt there as it's where you'd expect him to be. Would need to see more angles to see if he's justified in being near the RB.

    I've summarised for clarity as I'm not trying to get you to agree, I'm trying to understand where you're coming from. What's the logic? What are you forming your opinion from?

    So you agree all are better as you wouldn't pick last years players. You agree Brands done a good job. Yet you want patience for a manager who with better tools is doing a worse job than the last. Why would you give him more time? He's got the record for set pieces conceded per game managed at his last 3 clubs (he's ranked 1, 2, and 3 in Premier league history!). He's not improving, and other than Wednesday hasn't looked like making any tactical changes even though it's not working.. But even then he used his subs and reverted back to the shitty tactics that have burnt out heads out.
