  1. Whilst I get the frustration, rolling heads so quickly is what got us into this mess in the first place. I'm expecting next season as stabilisation too, this season was more a first step towards that but injuries have put us back in the planning a bit whilst also highlighting the key issues. Patience is an absolute must for the next 18 months at least, it really will take that long to recover from Walsh, Fat Sam, Koeman and Silva etc...
  2. That plus he injures himself and others around him in a blue shirt. Definition of the word liability
  3. I'm assuming a back 4 with Digne and Coleman as FBs, Godfrey and Holgate ahead of them with Siggy on the left, Richarlison leading the line and James on the right
  4. "Team" News us a stretch. Fully expect us to win by 5 now and all the premature whining can be put in the bin
  5. Masks optional too it seems
  6. Haller too. Didn't they pay £40m for him then sell for half price a year later?
  7. Not sure what his short size has to do with anything, but the wages are less than Tosun and he's done about as much so nothing to complain about there either
  8. Could've also been Man United wouldn't consider any option from a potential rival, which Wham weren't at the time. There's so many if, buts and maybes here it's pointless discussing
  9. 180 days/ 6 months sober today mate. So if that can happen, King can score a goal 😉
  10. Even the £5m fee was "up to £5m" implying had to to win something/qualify for CL or EL. If he scores in the last game of the season and that gets us into either of the European competitions, he'll have paid his worth and we can go our separate ways. The fact that Lingaard has had a couple of decent games in 7 seasons or whatever it is utterly irrelevant to us and Brands. Any suggestion otherwise is twaddle.
  11. Sorry @dunlopp9987 "As for Keane, I'd agree on that he's been one of our rocks for the entire season. By far our most consistent of the back four, and would love to see a pairing of he and Godfrey next season. Or a rotation of him/Godfrey/Koulibaly."
  12. His technical ability and passing range is massively under appreciated. If he did what he does for us at Barca, he'd be in all the headlines. His finishing outside of heading and poaching still needs a lot of work. Other than that he's got it all
  13. OK lads. PM or posts start to magically disappear.
  14. Don't know how you got that from "And so, in that position, we are really covered for the future."
  15. He offers so much more than goals. He defends from the front, he creates space. "Offers nothing to the team" unless he's scoring is just nonsense
  16. I don’t agree with this bit at all. His work rate is his only negative for me, but it’s the trade off and a worthwhile one too most of the time. He plays when he wants, and if he’s been booted a few times then he tends to hide away for a period. It’s just his temperament I guess, and completely understandable because he does get unnecessarily roughed up with 0 protection from officials. all of this isn’t me having a go at him or not rating him. I’m still giddy when I see him in our kit. But the thought of him being central upfront is just a non-starter for me. On the shoulder of DCL
  17. I’m clearly exaggerating but I’ve seen him sulk in games when he’s been roughed up early on and effectively stop playing for large chunks of time. It’s a price we pay for his ability but also why I would never play him as the central CF
  18. You sit on him and kick him a bit early on
