  1. Hopefully that means he will be fit for Fulham! He is another starting to pick up regular muscle strains. On a side note, whoever thought international matches and friendlies was a good idea in the current climate needs shooting.
  2. Put him in the box, feed him the ball in the area, he'll score. Simple as that. Goals win games and he's scoring goals. It's why I love him playing for us and why I loved Lukaku and Yak playing for us. Strikers can do fuck all else for all I care.
  3. He said: “I think it was a ball dispute, he went over the top, if my foot was stuck it might have even broken my ankle, but I think it wasn’t bad. “He tried to steal the ball and ended up missing the ball.” Compare this to the shower over the park. Hopefully Cavani doesn't get death threats.. oh wait proper fans don't do that. The shite over the park could take a lesson in class from Richarlison.
  4. Got a job offer, remote working but based on the UK. Means leaving our home of the last 8+ years and a place we love in Switzerland, but moving to be closer to family and the jobs going to be really interesting. They basically made exceptions to get me and it’s been 4 weeks from first call to contract being presented.
  5. The issue with Tosun has been his physicality to play the one up front role that was asked of him under previous managers. His finishing and touch is generally good. If you look at how Ancellotti is playing DCL then it would suit Tosun better than previous managers. He isn't going to set the world alight any time soon, but I could see him chipping in with a couple of goals and assists if he is needed regularly enough.
  6. I'm proud of Georgia right now. The election of state governor two years ago was one of the most corrupt of recent times. One of the two candidates was Georgia's Secretary of State, responsible for overseeing the election. He managed to invalidate hundreds of thousands of votes for his opponent, ensuring that he won. In contrast, the new Secretary of State, also a Republican, is playing this very much by the book. Stacy Abrams, who unfairly lost that gubernatorial election, has been mobilizing voters in the city of Atlanta, and they voted early in droves. That, together with the legacy of John
  7. I think DCL's recent rise just shows how the right manager at the right time with the right system can work wonders for a player. I think he has improved his all round play but I don't think it is by that much. The difference to DCL is that he is playing in the right areas far more often and he is getting the service. His movement has always been very good but it has been wasted down the channels or with poor quality delivery. Now his movement is so much more focused and when he gets those chances he is invariably scoring. I dont think I have ever seen a striker score so many goals from
  8. Yeah I agree with what you are saying but if world class midfielders are on offer we need to take that opportunity before sorting the defence out. Defence is the priority, but why waste an opportunity on a world beater?
  9. I've got no problem with a player that realises they aren't able to help the team.
  10. No, they're probably saying hes one of the best in the world who is also capable of making mistakes.

  12. Coleman started well but since his injuries he has also struggled with his performances IMO. I would say Digne is the only consistently good one out of the lot of them at the moment. Hopefully they can settle down again after this international break, stay fit and get back to what they were doing at the start of the season.
  13. Everyone received the email about the next batch of surveys about the match day experience? Im looking forward to this one. This is the make or break finer detail stuff. Exciting.
  14. More fool those who follow Shukes...
  15. I understand how that feels.
  16. I've shed a few tears today. This has been a long, exhausting, emotionally draining 4 years. I wish it wouldn't have even been this close, but ya know, white supremacy. Now let's rally behind Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, flip that Senate in January, and FIX THIS BROKEN ASS COUNTRY.
  17. I don’t understand why we’ve suddenly stopped pressing higher up and set up much deeper. Our dominance early season was making opposition teams panic and since Liverpool we’ve just sat back and conceded time and time again. I don’t get it at all.
  18. I’m not disappointed with him, but I dont think we’ve seen anywhere near the best from him yet, something I’m looking forward to.
  19. Tomorrow is the big day. Keeping my fingers crossed that Trump becomes a lame duck.
  20. He provided a lot more this week than against Fulham. He is and will always be a luxury player to some extent. If we had more possession I think he'd do a good job controlling attacks in the middle and we saw that in those early games. When we don't have much of the ball he doesn't have as much involvement apart from to create chances on quick attacks. In that sense he did pretty well: 3 shots (2 on target) 5 key passes 2 dribbles Fouled 3 times 8 Crosses (though only 3 considered accurate - assume that includes corners/free kicks) 4 out of 7 successfu
  21. I think he along with Siggy, Delph, Bernard, mina, need trimming off the wage bill and better younger hungry players bought in.
  22. I'd be even more pissed off about it if that was the case, and I don't think it is.
  23. Allan is having a stormer today. Great run and shot there, but it’s not the first time he has driven us forward today.
  24. RB and Isco if possible. The GK, CB and a forward in summer
  25. Fantastic in the first half and was in my running for MOTM at that point. I want more of that positive play.
  26. Back top of the scoring charts again. Still in disbelief how many he's getting under Carlo. Honestly, he's gone from me believing he wont make it at this level, to me thinking he would be a useful squad player for us, to potentially being a 20+ season striker.
  27. Don't like Hugh Grant the actor but Hugh Grant the Fulham fan is a top man.
  28. trump has lost every single legal battle and recount. he needs to give up. he's a pompous windbag
  29. Very good post. I edited it to take out the parts that specifically refer to the USA. If you read it now, it could be about pretty much every country in Europe too. The US is definitely not alone in this. Few countries, however, have had the misfortune of having the uninformed contrarian view get to a majority. Thank God the US, for one, took a little step back to sanity with the election of Biden.
  30. Just took the survey and I’m very impressed with the ideas displayed. Love the idea of having bars and restaurants inside the stadium, it’s a shame they look like they will just be for premium seating though. If they put a couple of real pubs inside the south stand and opened a couple of hours before kick off they could pick up some of the money that currently gets spent on County Road. They could stay open a couple of hours after the match too, it would filter the traffic a bit around the ground and scoop up more money. I like that you might be able to upgrade to hospitality on a
  31. You weren't willing him to fail though. The vibe I get from some Everton fans is that they want him to fail and that's just weird to me. As for the push if you're in the air it doesn't matter how strong you are, you're gonna move. (One of my bug bears is when people give you a little shove on the back when you go for a header, doesn't even have to be hard but it can knock you for 6).
  32. My god, the whiplash from 45 to 46 is real. I had forgotten how a President is supposed to sound. Joe and Kamala said everything they should've said, but one thing that really stood out to me was Joe's specific shout-out to the black Americans who propelled him to the presidency. They brought him back from the brink in the primaries, and I think it was important that he specifically acknowledged the black electorate. January 20th cannot come soon enough.
  33. Agree with you 110%, these games have hit home to how wafer thin we are outside 5 or 6 quality players, to be so night and day between poor and great is astounding and surely something that has rang alarm bells at board level.
  34. International break has come at the perfect time (it is next week isn't it?). Three winnable games but ones that we need to be absolutely up for, unimaginable if we lose to the likes of Fulham and end up making this run go on. I'm more angry about today's result than I have been for a while, do the basics and we quite literally win that, two goals that you'd hate to concede at Sunday League level - the third scored as everyone was up the pitch which I can forgive. Just really, really, really pissed off at what could have been.
  35. Great to hear from him. Biggest surprise for me has been his effort. I was expecting him to be a little lightweight. But he snaps into challenges strongly. No one ghosts past him.
  36. You’re right, can’t make it up. And we need to call it what it is, fascism in action. I would not propose to call all Trump supporters active, conscious proponents of fascism. But we do need to try to understand how widespread is fascism in Trumpism. Here’s my tentative first take. Trump and inner circle — fascists, grifters, liars, cheaters, scofflaws, white supremacists. There is absolutely nothing they will not do to retain power, now ominously including disrupting the counting of finished ballots and encouraging neo-Nazi militias to “stop Democrats from stealing the election.
  37. Trump supporters in Arizona protesting yelling "count the votes!" while trump supporters in Michigan are yelling "stop the count!" Literally can't make this shit up
  38. Are we the team that ends up being managers last the most? Ancelotti and Moyes spring to mind. Any how, personally hope he keeps the job after we beat them.
  39. I think there are “officially” 5 states still in play: North Carolina, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, and Pennsylvania. 1. NC - Trump highly likely to win. 2. Of the other 4, Arizona has already been “called” for Biden, but there are still enough uncounted ballots that Trump still has a small chance. 3. Of those other 4, Biden needs to win any 2. Thus, Trump needs to win any 3. Of the 4, as the ballot-counting continues, Biden is favored to win Arizona, Nevada, and Pennsylvania. Georgia is thought to be a toss-up. 4. So, Biden very likely but not 100% certain to win. 5.
  40. Can't say how grateful i am to have Carlo here, i truly believe he epitomises our club in his personality and approach. However, that doesnt make him above criticism. I can honestly say i woke up at halftime ( 12.30am kick off and off the back off a 28 hour shift ) messaged my brother and asked if we had injuries in the first half. It was moyesesq when we use to play Rodwell at RM. If Silva put that team out he would get crucified. We go again however!
  41. As with Gomes, until the last few games he was a big part of a team winning games. Some of his link up with James and Coleman on the right has been great, and he has shown he can get back with real pace to cover when needed. Don’t have any disappointment with him personally.
  42. A shit show from him today. He couldn't have got anything else wrong in all honesty. I know we had players missing but the negative line-up killed any chance of us getting a foothold in the game, and then the substitutions were bizarre to say the least. You know exactly what you're going to get from Newcastle and they gave us no surprises - be solid and compact, sit in and be willing to play on the counter. That is exactly what they did so why the fuck did Carlo go with the slowest midfield he could possibly start with? Not a single one of them was going to move the ball quickly or b
  43. He needs to start against Man U - he’s the nearest thing we have to Richarlison (albeit nowhere near as good) and will put the graft in tracking back that Iwobi and Bernard lack. Very disappointed that he didn’t start over Gomes or Gylfi today.
