  1. He supposedly turned down the opportunity to interview for the WBA job according to VillaReport/The Times, I dont think hes in a hurry to jump to management. Edit: beaten to it
  2. A tale spun by Roberto Carlos too, hes said before that he was close to joining us before moving to inter.
  3. Nah, I think it's the other way around, sounds like the RB is shouting "John, turn!" and is annoyed that McGinn just stands there.
  4. I think that video highlights why he's been so poor the last couple of seasons, Blues are **** awful. Compare the movement between the Brentford players at the start with the Blues players, and it's like Blues are in a division below. They're mostly just standing around watching Jota make runs and when some of the Blues players do actually make runs, they just stop for no reason as Jota passes through to them. Not to mention the number of chances their strikers skied when the ball was put on a plate for them. The Brentford players make runs that free space for themselves and others, the B
  5. My guess would be that it was a handshake agreement that they'd agree to any offer above £40m rather than a contractual one, so when Arsenal took the piss by offering £1 over, Liverpool didn't have any obligation to say yes.
  6. So... Anybody got a spare ticket?
  7. When I checked earlier there were 5500 tickets left, and I was just in the queue hoping against hope that buying multiple tickets for one game might count (it obviously didn't) and there were even more tickets available than when I checked earlier, so they're definitely holding tickets back. Also, I'm guessing a fair few in that queue are just trying their luck to get a ticket like myself without meeting the criteria.
  8. Hmm, I swear I read that through a few times, dunno how I missed that.
  9. Do Semi-Final tickets count towards the 5 game criteria? I know it keeps getting repeated that it doesn't but is there any official confirmation of this or just rumours?
  10. He runs up the pitch a lot. Nevermind that he's never arsed to get back afterward though.
  11. Prime example of why Hutton should be nowhere near our team, a massive liability in defence.
  12. I absolutely agree it does depend on the player and the situation, and I can see why it might be prudent to hold on to Clark given our current lack of options at full back, but I can't see him being anything more than a 3rd/4th choice backup.I'd rather us focus on trying to upgrade on Taylor or Elmo and just have them as backups if we want to improve that area, and I don't think we'd need to break the bank to do so, which makes keeping him as a cheap option less of a big deal. If it was a season ago, I would absolutely be questioning letting him go when on the verge of a financial meltdown.
  13. (This isn't aimed at you eddiemunster, just had to get something off my chest about these types of social media posts I've seen loads of today.) Realistically, how many players have actually done this to us? And how many players have we released that we should have realistically held on to? The only players I can think of that we let go in the last 15 years that we maybe shouldn't have are Cahill and Albrighton. All the others that get brought up are players we released or allowed to leave whilst a Premier League team, it would've been planning for failure to keep hold of the likes o
  14. Not sure where I saw it now, I'll have a look. Edit: Found it It even shows the one with the best case for a dive twice to push up the counter.
  15. Anyone else seen the video a Leeds fan made of all his "dives" yesterday? It even has a little dive and fouled counter. Oh, and of course a "fair tackle" counter that goes up to 1, I imagine you can guess which tackle that is. The thing is though, almost every "dive" is an obvious foul, to the point that even some of the Leeds players aren't really arguing, yet when a Leeds defender scythes him down after the ball had gone it's counted as a dive. There's an argument that there's 1 dive in there, but it was still a foul, it was the one from Phillips really early on when Phillips was pulling hi
  16. It's funny, I've seen this photo shown to quite a few Leeds fans who suddenly go quiet about the "diving" all game.
  17. A perfectly good tackle apparently. It's staggering how often people equate "winning the ball" with "not a foul".
  18. **** me, looks like he's obliterated his boot in that tackle.
  19. Bielsa and his assistant are better at English than I thought, though I'm surprised Sky got them to commentate.
  20. We need to calm down a bit I think, everything's a bit frantic at the minute.
  21. To be fair to Bruce, hes securing us a playoff place as it stands, with Jedinak starting at CB too!
  22. In our last 5 games we have played 4 direct playoff rivals, with one of those rivals being derailed by losing to us, the other three are all directly competing with us still. If that's just "outplaying weaker teams" that you can't really judge him on, then you're basically saying the only games he can be judged on are his losses and our last two games of the season.
