Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Marco Silva appointed Everton manager in the least surprising news for quite some time.

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Lampard appointed at Derby. That's going to go really badly isn't it? :arrow: Just because you were a big name player, shouldn't mean you are able to waltz straight in to a managerial position at a club in the top two divisions without one iota of managerial experience. I hope it fails spectacularly.

Re: Rumour - Ruben Lameiras

being 'better than Aluko' is not really setting the bar very high Better is better, and right now we're looking at another season of Aluko turning into tackles in the centre circle. But yeah, you certainly couldn't limbo under that bar. Pfft, tell that to Hermes. https://78.media.tumblr.com/1a1df3b...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

I read somewhere that Moore is on 30k a week. Assuming this is true then the remainder of his 3 year contract is worth £4.6m (contracted wages) + expenditure of 1m original purchase price + £3.1 wages paid over the first 2 contracted years. This would mean that the club would be valuing the player ...

If that is their hooped template then I think a lot of people would be very happy with that.

By the way, I thought it was poor of the Fulham 'exececutive' to come out with that in public.

Life is complex, not everything that goes wrong has someone at fault. Blame culture helps no one. For example, it's no one person's fault you're a div, and blaming your parents helps no one. However it is your parents fault for not loving you enough and giving you enough attention, and your school ...

Re: England 2018 World Cup poll

IF things go according to seeding/reputation/some kind of footballing logic then I think we'd end up with either Brazil or Germany in the Quarters.
