Re: England - the future....

Away from last night's game for a moment and on to selection of players. Southgate stated recently that Butland needs to play at a higher level than the Championship to be considered. Recently Mason Mount, who plays for Derby in the Championship got in the squad and yet Foden, who has had more relev...

Re: England - the future....

As for Friday night's game, I think Barkley's role in the better stuff we played has been widely under sold. Dier going off was a bit of a bless as he and Henderson in the same midfield isn't really necessary and we looked much more balanced and threatening once Southgate made the right decision to...

Re: England - the future....

Hudson Odoi sleeping there. Didn't react after he'd lost the ball. 1 down and thus is now a tricky away game Quickly forgotten because we have now scored twice. I know Foxy and I have gone on about ITV, and in particular Tyledesley's commentaries, in the past but he is worse than ever tonight by hy...

Re: Euro 2020

It's alright, Marc McNulty's on! What a miss. They really don't have a great deal to choose from. Well done Northern Ireland, they do look a team and might just cause a shock when it comes to the big games v Holland and Germany. The Republicans meanwhile look a rabble-inevitably the IRA poster boy ...

Re: Weekend Football

From Despair To Where? Sorry to spoil the Spurs love in but am I the only one who thinks the interior is basically the Etihad or the Emirates with different coloured seats?


Imagine what it would have been like if they ever had a team that won things.

Re: The 2005/06 Squad one word game

Dave Kitson-what a bargain!!
Or rather, the second goal-scoring bargain, totally different player but just as much of a star.

Re: On this day

March 25th 2006, a certain game at the King power, where has the time gone? that day will never leave me. Those days are precious and why we go to football. That was one of the few big games I had to miss over the years, the other 3 being the play-off losses v Walsall and v Swansea (although I watc...

Re: England - the future....

I thought Sancho looked like your classic quality but overhyped starlet destined to be the enemy in two / three years time It makes you wonder why City were prepared to let him go. I know they already had Sane and Sterling so his progress might have stalled but they have kept Foden who has the like...

Re: England - the future....

Didn't watch the game but Henderson and Dier in midfield seems a bit shit What do we have in the way of CB's and CM's coming through? Seem a little light in that area Dier deliberately kicked a couple of theirs (doesn't he always) but came off worse when one of theirs kicked him. IMHO Henderson was...

Re: England - the future....

Sancho could actually be on the path to greatness in a way no-one British has been since Gascoigne. Let’s hope he isn’t a complete and utter dickhead as well and can complete the journey. It seems daft to say it but with the ridiculous amount of emerging / developing young talent at our disposal, w...

Re: England - the future....

Barkley really made a difference. Upped the tempo of the passing and drove forward well. They were very pedestrian that first 15-20 minutes. England clearly the better side, but 5-0 was a bit flattering, a fair slice of fortune in several of the goals. A good start to the campaign. The result was v...

Re: Best/Worst Pundit

Yet you seem to object, by highlighting that supposed 'level' of the pundits provided to women's cricket vs. Scott's appearance at the World Cup or on Premier League coverage. For what it's worth, both Hussian and Athers have covered women's cricket on Sky too. Gower and Botham only generally appea...

Re: Best/Worst Pundit

For netball, I don't think so, but then let's not be silly enough to suggest equivalence between women's football and men's netball. On women's cricket - yes. Certainly Sky's coverage of the women's game generally uses the exact same commentary and pundit-ing team. Nick Knight and Rob Key normally ...

Vic you must be pleased that Gunter came on and had a stormer. I think he may save us from relegation. 8) About time he did something good (I gather he wasn't much good as usual) as he didn't do much to save us from relegation from the Premier League. If we do get relegated he will be the only WELS...

Your anti United stance is getting so so tiresome. It's almost like Kes and his constant shite. No one gave them a chance in Paris, and look what happened there. I always read it as largely tongue-in-cheek tbf. i mostly do (default HNA position tbf) but there's also a fair bit of bitterness in some...
