Re: Season 2018/2019

A decent 2-2 draw with Besiktas tonight. Two late goals from Smith and McNulty forced the draw. OK it’s a friendly but the one key area where I think the team will improve under Clement is fitness. This pre season has more intense and started earlier than last season. That should hold the team in go...

Re: Sam Baldock

It looks like Clement is having to work with a very limited budget. Far less than Stam was given last summer. If that’s the case then he will get what he can. If Moore stays then we will start the season with a stronger squad. OK other teams have strengthened but some like Ipswich haven’t. I don’t e...

Re: George Evans

The fee is now nearly £1 million apparently. News sources all over the place on the transfer fee.

Sunderland messageboard suggests they are paying £450, 000 for him which is good business from our point of view.

Re: George Evans

Good. This needed to happen as we have far too many midfielders.

Re: Best of the World Cup?

I wouldn’t have Kane in the team of the tournament as he was a disappointment in the knock out stages. I would have Trippier in there. He was superb.

Come on Croatia. An on goal and very dubious penalty against them. They are playing all the football.

We had very little creativity from midfield. This will be a big season for Swift. He needs to stay injury free and take a step up from last season.

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

I just stupidly sat through the extended highlights. I was pretty drunk yesterday so didn’t remember much of it. Henderson was pretty awful. Constantly trying to pump the ball forwards with a killer long pass. I think I saw one out of 10 of these find a man. The rest just gave away possession when ...

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

Over the course of 120 minutes Croatia deserved it. England were much the better team in the first half but Kane was really poor tonight and that was crucial. In the second half and extra time Croatia were technically the better team and it proved decisive. However England go home with their heads h...

England playing at a slower tempo and not as effective. Croatia though are creating nothing.

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

Next part is to get to HT still leading Also seems a bit of a one trick game plan i.e. pass to Sterling and let him run at their defence And come on Jesse at least make the keeper work. England’s tactics are working well though. Croatia are struggling to cope with Sterling’s pace. England are playi...

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

England playing really well and by far the better team. Kane should have scored then.
