  1. Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

    I was under the impression he'd been involved in more goals than anyone in the team. Surely that means he deserves his place.
  2. Leicester City (Away) Sunday October 29th

    He seems like a striker to me. Reminds me of Defoe in ways; intelligent runs and shots from distance. I think he'll start to actually score if he's played regularly. That said, he can be an effective wide forward but not someone that whips in crosses.
  3. Brighton and Hove Albion (Away) Sunday October 15th

    Get rid of this clown. Doing the exact same thing that hasn't worked all season, after two weeks to think of something else.
  4. Should we sack our manager?

    Yeah that would be perfect
  5. Nikola Vlasic

    I think this is the main reason we're having trouble finding a striker. It's a high profile position within an especially inflated market and no one desperate to sell.
  6. I disagree, I think he appealed to voters who felt alienated (insecure) and desperate. Circumstances and his good-ol' boy personality won them over. Today he's been ranting about people erasing history; harping on the statues and deflecting from his initial comments. Freedom of speech is easier to defend than racism...I get being the anti-establishment and seeking that in a candidate, but I've always found his actions repulsive.
  7. Without question. Completely unfit to lead.
  8. Gylfi Sigurdsson

    This is good news and now I'm excited about movement for other targets.
  9. Kasper Dolberg

    No real traction to this but, yes please!
  10. Of course it's been said better than I could have put it: "I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection." -Martin Luther King, Jr. From, 'Letter from a Birmingham Jail' This can be applied to many marginalized groups.
  11. In a cab on my first visit to NO last year I asked my driver what one of these very statues was; what effigy was it depicting? He said Robert E. Lee. That's when they were just talking about taking them down. After about four days in a very fun city I quickly remembered where I was.
  12. The flag, tyrannical statues, et all symbolize oppression. Perhaps these objects or examples of them can be, I don't know, present in the confines of museums or accurate text books? The Civil Rights Institute in Birmingham is a place that I've been to that at least tries to get things right with its content and programming. There you will find KKK hoods/uniforms, a bombed-out bus, the shattered remains of the stained glass window from the church in that city. They do a wonderful job. Visit a museum, or pick up some enriching literature on these subjects; if you need somewhere to start I have a running list. The 'erasing history' stance is a tired one. The Germans were able to do it in less time with monuments that bring to light the horrors of the Holocaust. They know the details, without seeing Hitler on statues and without swastikas all over the place (despite any graffiti that pops up, I assume.) It is literally the same thing, there is no difference. The rebel flag is to slavery as the swastika is to the holocaust, they can't be disassociated. It should offend everyone and POC shouldn't be left to cry foul to an audience that continually ignores them. It's everyone's burden, it hurts us all. There is a 9/11 Memorial; it's been open for years but this country isn't nearly as comfortable dealing with the evils of slavery. So much so that places like this happen to be vanguards in the preservation and historical sector: https://www.theatlantic.com/notes/2016/01/is-the-whitney-plantation-really-americas-first-slavery-museum/431448/ I've been; it's harrowing and more people should make the trip if they're ever down in the New Orleans area. It's about an hour NW I believe. These monuments, or 'history' as some people call it were mostly erected in the very late 19th century so the treasonous act of doing so would fly under the radar, or even more recently as an affront to the efforts of the Civil Rights Movement in the 60's. They're not timeless Grecian statues that have been a part of city skylines forever, they're methods of intimidation and hateful pride made physical. They're like building a statue of Joseph Goebbels just after the Nazi defeat and fighting tooth and nail for them to stay up to this day, except the Confederacy lost which makes even less sense; unless your main goal is to keep the ideas and morals of your populace brooding for years to come, even in the face of defeat. It worked, here we are and now because the statues are things that inspire some people and confuse others into a state of dismissal they did their job as a form of time released hate. Some are charged up, some don't 'see the big deal', and some of us are just as scared as ever. You wouldn't ask people people to just 'deal with' and 'learn from' a statue of a Nazi chief officer. Surely there are other ways to grow?
  13. Man of the Match v Stoke

    Just watched the highlights, the goal was excellent and we actually played some nice football in the second half. Everyone one who participated in the goal, from Keane to Rooney was great today and we'll really start to impress as the rapport develops between players. I'm glad Koeman acknowledged the mistake he made with the formation.
  14. Michael Keane

    He was shocking and you could see his confidence was lacking; saw him hanging his head a lot. At least he's aware. He doesn't have the ball playing ability of some of the other players and I think he knows it.
