Re: England’s World Cup Finals 2018

Just a thought, but imagine how potent going forward we could be IF the likes of Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Barkley and Sturridge were fit, in form and bought into this sides structure and work ethic. I would expect the squad to remain unchanged after the world cup with any additions being youngs...

Club v Country

They had this poll on Skysports recently, I've kept it a bit vague so the Scots/Welsh/N Irish/other foreigners feel included and can vote for their country/club.

Re: Alternative to STAR?

I'm not against STAR but they are definitely "good cop" and maybe there are times when there needs to be a "bad cop" organisation which STAR can distance itself from. STAR can not be both "good cop" and "bad cop", it will not work as it will strain or break e...

Re: Club 1871

The "spirit of the South Bank" died when Elm Park was bulldozed IMHO. A load of kids gesturing to the away fans in Y25 never really cut it for me. That was us in the South Bank once. The difference is we're getting old and sensible now. The difference back then was the fact the away fans ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Dave Edwards

The right midfield partnership can be greater than the sum of it's parts e.g. Karacan & Leigerwood, this also extends to the entire team.

When your players have a losing mentality and have just avoided relegation, signing someone who has just been relegated may not be the right move to help change the vibe around the place.

Re: Building for next season

Cooper was a classic example of Stam letting a player go who wasn't a good enough technical footballer. Yet is proving himself more than able to play at Championship level. Cooper was more than good enough technically, certainly head and shoulders above McShane (no pun intended). His issue was that...
