  1. Smith has said he's one of the Academy. Hone his skills, learn his trade and develop properly. I'd be surprised if we see him at all next season, never mind this one. We definitely need another striker, it's just whether we are able to get one. Half the league need a striker and I can't see us going for someone else unproven. A last gasp effort for Benteke (not out of sentimentality but because he's about the only option for a proven scorer left) will be about it IMO.
  2. I'm all for including lesser nations of course.. I'm not a huge rugby fan but I'm putting the same logic to cricket.. also an elitest sport, played very well by a select few countries and a big big step down to the lesser nations. When the cricket World Cup had the number of teams reduced I wasn't happy.. how do you expect the likes of Netherlands, Scotland, Zimbabwe, etc.. when you limit it to only 2 qualifying spots (which were always going to go to West Indies and Afghanistan) to get better if they can't take part in the biggest competition. But then the World Cup happened, and it wa
  3. That's a very fair comment. We are not in a position to have 22 starting quality players though. Competition in every area of the pitch is fantastic but we also need to be realistic with our squad expectations. I think over time we will develop the squad, but for a first season back with survival as the target, I think Taylor is... adequate. For now. I think there are more important areas we will need to strengthen in January, especially as Hause is capable at left back also.
  4. This Rugby World Cup has proved the international Cricket Board correct, and that really annoys me as I want to see more nations given a chance at the CWC. But at the Cricket World Cup this year there was no massively weak team, and every game was closely fought. This whole first round of matches in this Rugby World Cup just seem pointless; New Zealand vs Canada and Namibia.. ffs. And now Scotland need a bonus point win vs Russia to have any chance when they come to play Japan, making qualification potentially come down to who can beat the whipping boys by the most. That's not W
  5. Kyle Walker Peters is way better than Aurier. But Spurs feel they need someone more proven. Which i don't understand because all Aurier has proved is how crap he is.
  6. Against top of the league Swansea, away... no less. The Championship is amazing, isn't it?
  7. Our midfield was so much more effective with Conor in the team. Goal capped it off but I thought his performance generally was excellent, he wanted the ball and was always looking to make things happen. That gave us John, Jack and Conor all looking to do that and Norwich just couldn't cope. Nakamba was excellent with breaking up play and with 3 players always showing for the ball and looking positive he always had options. Most positive I've seen us play in a long time, Norwich had no idea how to cope with those three, as poorly as they played and as many injuries as they had, the system still
  8. I thought Neil Taylor had really stepped up and that Targett was going to have to wait quite a while for his chance. Then Targett played, and I realised the gulf in quality. Taylor was a decent Championship player who 'stepped up' to being a very good Championship player. Targett is a Premier League quality player and that really shows. Taylor is good backup IMO, but falls short of the quality we require in a starting 11.
  9. We signed this guy with the intention of being a Championship player, and nothing we've seen (pre-season and last night) has shown has shown him to be anything other than comfortably Premier League quality. I'd say he could be one of our shrewdest signings for years, but.. John McGinn. He's up there though.
  10. Norwich look exactly like they did last year.. good going forward and decent energy in midfield, but lacking organisation at the back. They grew into last nights games after a disastrous first half, but they're gonna have to score a lot of goals this year you feel. Didn't make a disgrace of themselves against a very very good Liverpool team though. We'll know more about their prospects this season when they're up against slightly lesser opposition.
  11. I think I've heard the same! Interesting indeed ! Just kidding, not a clue what's going on. I get my Villa news from here.
  12. I really want this to be announced at 11.59
  13. I think we were in for him, but have moved on. Excellent player but I think we have to prioritise a keeper and second striker over another winger.
  14. This is an important fact. I don't think it will be a case of the better player playing, I think it'll be which style of player would be best against that opposition, or give options off the bench. If El Ghazi finds himself against a quick left back he may not have much luck getting past him, so bring on Jota to drift inside and exploit a possible positional weakness in that player.
