  1. Luiz was so poor when we played Watford in December, physically dominated by their midfield and gave away a brainless penalty. I rate him but can see why he’s not starting, I’m actually glad he’s not got back in the side off the back of one pass. He does seem to have more of an impact off the bench currently

    Recruitment

    Maybe that's because you completely moved the goalposts from the original point. Someone made the point that people weren't exactly queuing up to pluck Mings out of Bournemouth's reserves last year, nor was it unanimously celebrated as a signing on here (rightfully so given his injury record). Your response of 'even Doris the Tea Lady knew we needed him' completely missed the point being made; that whilst we all might well have known we needed a Centre Half last January, it was our Recruitment team that made the masterstroke of getting Mings in. I twasn't in anyway an obvious signing, most of the early pages of his thread are filled with people assuming he was signed to replace Taylor at left back. It's completely rewriting history and harms any chance of serious debate, particularly given the infantile and unfunny allusion to Doris the Tea Lady.
  3. Van Dijk was signed from Southampton
  4. Lovely little touch to start the move for the goal, he was also heavily involved in the break for Grealish’s goal at Burnley. He just needs to have more of a consistent impact, frustrating player to watch but you can’t fault his effort.

    The Film Thread

    Nail on the head for me, agree with everything you’ve written. The inclusion of the Waynes massively harmed the overall effectiveness of the film in my eyes, great performance and very well made though it may be.
  6. Not only did he not appeal, he actually provided an assist as he was falling to the ground!

    Ezri Konsa

    No, his debut was the 2-0 win against Chelsea
  8. That’s just not true though is it, the few games he played in an advanced role in our winning run he scored 3 goals from open play (2 against Derby and the winner against Bristol City). He scored a hat trick against Norwich the season before which were all from open play and his pivotal goal in the play offs was from open play. Swansea away he scored the winning goal with a header from open play, there are a lot more examples as well. I’m not advocating him starting ahead of Grealish or McGinn but he is by far our best midfielder for arriving into the box late. The fact his set pieces are so good as well shouldn’t take away from that fact. Great option to have in the squad and seemingly a great professional as well.
  9. Why on earth would anyone need that explaining to them?

    Wesley Moraes

    People complained about Tammy doing it at Blackburn away, then he started banging them in and surprisingly no one mentioned it again...
