  1. Has he got a new contract yet? His strength training really shows in the game when he bounces off the floor after tackles by the Ya Ya Toures he plays against in CM. He changes direction really quick too it helps him win a lot of fouls for us. Grealish should take note. Maybe a bit of shooting training wouldn't go amiss either. He and Grealish should stay on after training working on long range shooting.
  2. Will you never post a single thing about bannan either directly or indirectly again if he doesn't? No, but I will promise 2 months Bannan free, whatever happens. If I slip up, someone send me a PM and we can add another 2 months on to that. Please note though that I was not the one who bumped this thread.
  3. That although Palace lost he can't have had that bad a game. If there were no positives to take from it he won't be on the bench. I'll hold my hands up and say my analysis is wrong if he's not on the bench. That would indicate there were no positives.
  4. Will you take it all back if he's on the bench against Leicester?
  5. He may have shown enough tonight to get back on the bench. Consider the midfield four Zaha Guédioura Bannan Williams (Kaikai - 80' ) then Zaha Guédioura Bannan Kaikai Bannan and Williams is what you call a lightweight midfield and the 19-year-old debut winger Kaikai hardly helped the defense out there when he came on. And we all know how hard Zaha works at his defensive duties (/src). against Obertan Colback Abeid Ameobi (Sissoko - 67' ) then Obertan Colback Sissoko Abeid So they equalised to 2 : 2 even after Sisso
  6. It was 2:2 after 90' and the third goal came from a header inside the six-yard box. I think the second-string Palace defence, which also conceded a penalty, was more likely at fault. The fact Bannan's side still managed 2 goals without their most influential defenders, without Jedinak, against a strong Newcastle XI is a positive for him.
  7. Surely any player who gets beyond youth football and reaches the first team of a Premier League side must have been dedicated and had a desire to succeed at youth level. I wonder if they did checks on his A-Level results to see whether he had brains smarts and would be able to read complex formation diagrams and tactics sheets. Braininess is not something we associate with a footballer but it would probably help to have some brains to play at the big clubs that have to win every game and play European football. The players need to understand and memorize these complex systems they
  8. What are these background checks? How do they know he's intent on a successful career and has a winning mentality if they didn't talk to him (which presumably they did not do without tapping up because they only later asked Everton about him)? This paragraph is very football manageresque.
  9. I thought Clark would become better than Cahill but he does his Cryuff turns at the wrong end of the pitch. Maybe the only way for him to get better now is to find another club. He is still worth a place in the Premier League so maybe we can offload him to Man Utd in the winter transfer window because they really need Premier League quality centre backs.
  10. Jay Rodriguez will make Spurs better. He tackles, he shoots, he scores. With Eriksen, Lennon and the great Andros Townsend supplying tap-ins you would be a fool not to immediately recruit him for your fantasy league side as soon as he is fit. Tottenham's main problem is like Man Utd's, but not quite so bad (both right and left they have superb wing backs): the area of the pitch that is the most influence on the team. Central defence, and central midfield. Kaboul and Vertonghen are not world class enough. Vlaar would muscle one of those out if he was in the Tottenham squad. And alth
  11. MoTD doesn't have time to do that, unfortunately. If you're a fan of a non top 4 club, there would be even less of your teams games shown than there is now (not you personally, just the viewer). MoTD has got less bad pundit wise as a result of Neville being so good and raising the bar, but it'll never compete in the same area as Sky MNF, which can devote 30 minutes to a single play if the want. If you're us, you might prefer the Sky analysis, but if you're a 11 year old watching MoTD on Sunday morning, you maybe just want to see your favourite team or player win or score a goal and don't want
  12. To be fair, their foot/gunfire damage policy was slightly more genius - they also let Ferdinand, Vidic, and Evra go ( knowing well in advance that they would leave). Southampton also lost their manager and whole bunch of players and the effects have been exactly the different. The incapable fools! whilst they obviously did have a foot/gunfire damage policy it is not quite the same situation as Southampton. Southampton didn't lose all of their experienced defence (Fonte, the captain, and Yoshida) and in Schneiderlin, already had a powerful central midfielder who incidentally, cou
  13. Actually, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Danny Murphy made a great pundit pair last night. That won't happen again for the rest of the season. Apart from being very obviously anti-Villa Gary Lineker is a great host. He's got charisma and his cheesey wit is just right for the programme. However, the whole MOTD progamme is a bit formulaic and dull with the two pundits just sitting there. the Sky MNF is much better and MOTD should be more like that and allow the pundits to be more interactive with technology in their analysis.

  15. He really isn't that talented of a prospect and most reserve/youth followers don't rate him very much. He is very calm and composed on the ball but he has always lacked concentration and his defensive awareness to pick up runs etc. isn't very good. He also shies away from picking up a man and always seems to want to play as the extra man at the back which he got away with it in a back 3 but in a back 4 he can't do that. He is lucky to have got his chances due to him being left footed and van Gaal preferring to have a left footer at LCB. Michael Keane and Tom Thorpe are much better players.
