Re: Jordan Rhodes

I know a Blackburn fan who told me that even when Rhodes was banging them in for them the fans were never 100% behind him. He was always considered by them to be someone who could get into the perfect position to finish off a move but was not a team player and was very lazy. They rated that other c...

Re: Season 2018/2019

Re: Summer Transfers

I think it was Clarke , with his Chelsea connection, that brought in Ake and Chalobah on loan and since sold for £20 million (Ake) and a number of millions (Chalobah). When Clement was appointed I thought he would be doing something similar from Chelsea, Bayern Munich or Real Madrid but so far nobod...

Re: Sam Baldock

I think part of the issue is that we are a far less attractive proposition than this time last year, when we could genuinely talk about going for promotion. Unless we are going to splash out very large sums (and I'm quite pleased we are not) we are not going to be playing in the big league for sign...

Re: George Evans

Not the same physically but similar to Piazon and Pelle Clement in that they look as though they can play but just don't do enough.

Re: World Cup Punditry

Loved the beef between Ian Wright and Roy Keane the other night. Another tick in the box for ITV. Although Cesc's shirts were the highlight of the BBC coverage for me. This is the nail in the coffin evidence that our poster is Kes. Only he would be concerned about the shirt that somebody wears on T...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Croatia (n) sponsored by two big badges

A decent enough performance last night but ultimately we fell a little shy of the mark in both boxes and came up short when the pressure was on. It's been a good tournament, not only for our progress, but for the way the interest in football and the national team has been reinvigorated. I don't thi...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Croatia (n) sponsored by two big badges

Just off to play golf with a group who are mainly of an age where we have seen England win a World Cup. Rather than the positivity on here and all across the media the comments will be more about diving, how much they are paid, they haven't won anything yet,too many studio pundits talking bollocks,t...

Re: England’s World Cup Finals 2018

I get where that tweet is coming from, I'm just surprised TheSpread hasn't posted it on here already. However, the suggestion that Henderson is some sort of shit player is just more football ignorance frankly. "He's no Steven Gerrard is he?" Love seeing that on Twitter when Henderson come...

Re: Club v Country

As one of the few posters on here who seem to have been interested in the England side over the last few years I'd probably say the World Cup to be honest. As we're seeing now, international football can grab a nation like no club competition can and to see young Englishmen performing for their cou...

Noel hunt style player, someone to break up play and hold the ball up. Tbf it’s why Alfie and long did so well. I think that Nhunt was very underrated.

Exactly, when it comes home on Sunday does that mean nobody who is happy about it will be allowed to have their team win the league? also, if a team has some fans who vote club and some who vote country who gets their way? It's almost like it's a nonsense Love the positivity of "when" and...

Re: Club v Country

Club every day of the week. Opinion may be swayed by having seen the one-time winners and watched what might have been a better side do really well 4 years later. Incidentally going back to those days I think international sides were the tops (apart from Real Madrid who were better than any national...

Re: What are you planning for Saturday?

On the basis that, of course, we're not going to win the bloody thing, a few months ago I booked a holiday to Cyprus, flying out on Sunday morning. We land 3.30pm Cyprus time, which gives us 2.5 hours from landing to get through the airport, cab to the hotel, and find a bar for the game. Should we ...
