  1. André Green

    Would love to see him re-integrated in the team. He can push Adomah to the next level, or take on that mantle himself. A win-win for us.
  2. January transfer window 2018

    I don't even think there's much of a gap tbh. The bottom half of the PL are quasi-Championship teams. For all the money in that league, their squads are still awful. Only Southampton and West Ham and possibly Stoke have real PL quality squads. Put it this way. If a team from the bottom half drops into the Championship with an unchanged team, none of them would run away with the league or even be comfortably promoted. They'd be in the slog like the rest of us.
  3. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    We can take anybody in this league, especially with the way we're playing. I can't see too many teams beating us. Our defence is too solid and not too many teams can keep us out with the way we're playing now. Assuming we've turned a corner and this isn't another false dawn, I'm very confident of getting 2nd place.
  4. Jack Grealish

    I'm not really comparing their abilities per se, but more their play styles and how it contrasts with the typical "English" style which the English press usually fawn over because it's so rare. My point was if Jack played for a bigger club, even though he might not have been as good as Wilshere the media would have creamed themselves at the idea of a technically gifted British player. Hell, they tried really hard to claim Januzaj
  5. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    I think we will beat Norwich, we always do. Agree with the rest of your results, which would put us at 89 points. I think that should see us home.
  6. Jack Grealish

    Well according to man himself, our very own Gary Gardner was considered the bigger talent when they were coming through. Of course injuries had their say in who actually broke through and made a name for himself, but it really did help Wilshere that he was at Arsenal's academy and not ours for example. The hype around Wilshere was that he was an English midfielder who could pass and move and fit in Arsenal's system.. Really that was it. That's more of an indictment of English football/academies to be fair to him though. I can't remember a young English midfielder or any player for that matter coming through that possesses the technical skill that Jack does. His touch, awareness, balance, dribbling, vision etc for someone so young (think he was about 17 when breaking through) were unreal. I'm really surprised (and glad!) that more hasn't been made of him in the English press.
  7. Birkir Bjarnason

    Whelan would be excellent if he wasn't debilitatingly slow. Thor doesn't read the game well but makes up for it with his pace and hustle. Both aren't ideal. We need someone who can do a bit of both. I hope that Tuanzebe kid can be that player if he comes.
  8. Steve Bruce

    This. I'm fully on board now, and I have no qualms about admitting it. This looks sustainable. I'm confident we can get promoted now. This obviously wasn't the case before, and even our good runs were built on shaky foundations. But he seems to finally have rectified that (hope I'm not jinxing it ) and he deserves credit for that.
  9. Jack Grealish

    I can't believe we have a player like this that came from our academy. How many players in this league can give that through ball he gave to Adomah before that Hogan chance? Or even in the PL apart from the top 6? If he came through at Arsenal for example, the English media would be creaming themselves as they have been with Jack Wilshere for the past decade.
  10. Micah Richards

    Holy **** I knew we were bad, but just wow. That is actually comical. I have completely blocked this season from my mind, but that is embarrassing. The Southampton players barely celebrated because they didn't have to work for their goals. Lescott getting blitzed despite having a 30 yard head start. Richards jogging back while another player ghosts in to score. Bacuna's back pass. Rudy Gestede. What a shitshow.
  11. Conor Hourihane

    You can't but celebrate that goal. Brilliant from Grealish.
  12. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    Really, really doubt that. That would mean they have to lose 4 times in a row and we win all 4.
  13. Jack Grealish

    His shooting has really improved this season. Puts a lot more power into his shots these days. Almost scored from a curler today.
  14. Scott Hogan

    Makes a huge difference when you have Grealish playing him in, or the wingers/fullbacks crossing the ball to him as opposed to the center backs lumping it up to him. That was clearly never his game and was never going to thrive if we continued to play like that. I don't know if this is down to Agnew or just Bruce coming to his senses.
  15. Please tell me when to stop laughing at SHA

    That is brilliant. We'll likely be separated by 2 leagues come May
