Re: Squad for 2020/21

Can we acknowledge that if we did indeed offer silly wages last summer it was likely Mark Bowen who offered those silly wages.

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

You're right he wasn't shouty, that was just his stat spam and an earlier post with a massive font enlarge. Talk to different people and they'll tell you he was best wide combined with Blackett. I do think centrally is where he's best. But his performance remains underwhelming on end product pretty...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

How?! They didn't have to give back all the TV money and there's no way they make that from ticket and hospitalituly in 2 or 3 games This is how I should have reacted. However a quick search shows 24.33% of Arsenals revenue comes from matchday income, 96.2 million last season, so they certainly hav...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

You can sometimes make arrangements with the selling club for them to cover some of the players wages, normally in the form of a reduction to the agreed fee. My guess is we are trying to haggle Liverpool down sighting Coronavirus making the agreed price no longer viable for us. We would argue that ...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Who knows? If it saves money and directly benefits the first team by allowing us to keep hold of our best prospects (by offering them a direct route to the first team) then maybe it is something the club should look at. I really don't know though. I thought Brentford just completely got rid of thei...

Hopefully just trying to freshen things up and not the start of defunding the academy and youth teams. Last couple have years it seems u23 and u18 results have dropped off a bit, we've lost 2 academy directors and seen youth players celebrating reading defeats. No announcement of new U18 scholars. ...

Re: Bowen's Tenure

One of the first shipped out when there was talk about bad attitude in the squad though. Floats around the pitch not contributing. Passing poor. Doesn't beat his man. Doesn't score. Doesn't cross. Loses the ball. Doesn't tackle. Absolutely symptomatic with everything that was wrong with the club. A...

John O’Shea & Vito Mannone spring to mind! Didn’t Barrow get relegated with Swansea too? O'Shea seems to have been worth it. Yes he suffered 2 relegations but he is a winner overall. And, from what i hear, his mentality was what allowed him to play at the top level. Certainly wasn't ability. :w...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

Yeah, be careful who you raid. It's not a problem raiding someone like Rotherham on relegation for a standout player because they're in a weak team and have potentially experienced a promotion and a relegation. But you want to avoid players from perennial strugglers and teams on their second relega...

Old Man Andrews Yes. He is Eddie.

Eddie seems genuinely ITK. Well worth following.

Why do people think we're well stocked in midfield? We've got a plethora of airy fairy attacking midfielders and one guy who can put a shift in. We play 3 in midfield.
