Re: Season 2018/2019

I think we can expect to be slightly more creative all over the park. Which is better than bringing in one creative player and relying on them performing. Yiadom - looks likely to offer more going forward than Gunter Obita - not fit for the start of the season but we should get a lot more out of hi...

Re: Season 2018/2019

We come up as the 'best value' bet for relegation (based on 5-1 currently available) in the 'Not The Top 20' podcast - Championship Betting Preview 2018/19 Overall its a fairly good listen, with chat switching to the relegation market at around 30mins, where you will also hear i) praise for Parky a...

Re: Rubin or out

Watched three quarters of the game on You Tube. The Trolls will be pleased I wont be marking any of the performances, given that it was a friendly, a new team at half time and I was watching at the same time, Wheeler Dealers working on a DB7 . Also the pitch looked a bit uneven, a lot of uneven bou...

Re: Summer Transfers

do agree Victor to an extent, and I think Lampard has pulled off a great coup getting those two in. Pretty much every other club in the division would have happily taken either I do wonder how often these players actually end up a success though. Tammy Abraham obviously, but for every one of him, t...

Re: Sam Baldock

Baldock is small and so is McNulty. Our other likely attacking outlets like Barrow, Aluko, Swift and most of all Kelly are hardly giants. Unless we start with Bodvarsson we will carry no aerial threat at all and with little physical presence in the box.

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...
