Thanks to Everton getting a point in August, else our 13 wins from the start of the season record would be dust.

Re: World Cup 2018

Might still be some teams keen on him and he’s got just over a year left on his deal, seems disinterested. Time to cash in on him? Think we could find a better player for the price we could get for him tbh, thinking about the long term, Swift is the same age and is undoubtedly a level above, Stam s...

Re: Gunter to Sunderland?

Gunter is a very very decent RB at Championship level, very consistant, decent level of performance over his time here. Possible that part of the problem with him for some fans is the fact that whilst he is a decent Championship RB he is not, IMHO, an option at PL level. However, that's what we boug...
