    The 14 clean sheets would suggest the defence has improved
  2. Completely agree, gives us the option of moving Jack inside as well. Would much rather pay a bit over the odds for McNeil than buy Barkley
  3. I don’t think lack of effort is ever something that he could be accused of. Lack of pace, strength or even ability at times would be fair but he always gave his all for us

    We are also the youngest team in the league, inconsistency of results and/or performance can’t be a surprise
  5. Mings and Watkins have both been abysmal tonight
  6. Pope’s been the biggest disappointment for me the last few weeks, he’s obviously not coming in at ideal times of the innings but he has been all over the place
  7. I just think reactions like this completely ignore how rare it is for teams to win away from home in test cricket, particularly in ‘alien’ conditions. Not saying we’ve not been humiliated but it’s literally been going on for decades so it can’t be a surprise. Root had won 6 tests away in a row after the 1st test, India were never going to produce a pitch like that after we won that game convincingly. It really isn’t back to the drawing board with regards the home tests, Woakes will play and be great, same for Broad and Anderson. Leach has had a really good winter, Bess is the
  8. Absolutely, his ability against spin is a massive concern. I just don’t think that really has any bearing when considering the side for the home tests, or Australia. I do worry about Burns against the short ball in the winter.
  9. Surely the massive caveat to that is ‘on the sub continent’. Sibley and Burns are surely cemented for the home tests, Bairstow is only involved because of this rotational policy anyway. I’m not convinced about Crawley but I would hope and expect Sibley, Burns and Crawley to be the top 3 against NZ in June
  10. Agree with this, I’d hate to lose Konsa but our model now is likely to include one sale a summer. As long as it’s not Grealish I’d be relatively relaxed about selling anyone if we get a silly offer.
  11. None of them covered themselves in glory but I thought McGinn was the best of the three on Wednesday so not surprised Luiz has been dropped/rested. I think his levels have dropped off the most of everyone that was playing regularly pre Covid outbreak so hopefully it will do him some good
  12. Really refreshing not having any fake ITK as well, offering people private messages and posting cryptic comments for attention. You really need to let it drop, you disappeared after keeping the Rashica thread going longer than it should. Really no need to bring it up on multiple occasions in the thread of an actual signing, one that you curiously didn’t seem to have any knowledge of...
  13. I think the BT Sport graphic confused people when he got booked. It had his shirt number on it which is of course 5
  14. 2 goals, 2 good saves, 2 off target and 2 comfortable saves/tame shots isn’t a bad nights work, even allowing for the fact one of his goals was a penalty
