  1. Nothing credible then - thats comforting! I know a couple of people working at BMH, so it was a surprise to hear something so severe about jack without prior notice. All signs according to my sources point to a new contract.
  2. I missed this "Jack to Citeh - almost done" rumour. When/where did this come from? My sources saying the exact opposite...
  3. Just my opinion, but DM or CM, I think he'd be better than anyone currently at the club in those positions. Bring him in.
  4. Starting to see reports on twitter that this is a done deal at 32.5m. No idea if reliable, but looks legit
  5. All on Southgate for me that. All that attacking talent against a mediocre Scotland and he plays 7 defensive players. Muppet.
  6. I don't see any defensive stays presented for DMs only passing stats. Would people want a dm who has great passing range but whose tackling was worse? We already have one - his name is Doug Luiz. Also find it odd that you'd use data from the top 5 leagues as a point of comparison when dms in most leagues don't need to be anywhere near as aggressive as they do in the Prem. I understand the desire to have a dcm who can tackle and pass, but we are a LONG way from being good enough to attract one
  7. 7 subs is 3.5 mins. Theres always a couple mins for stoppages.
  8. And Grealish developed mich layer and at a slower rate than Foden. Different situation though as we do not have world class players to pick up the slack if a youngster is a little off the pace.
  9. I sincerely hope you are right. Unfortunately history doesn't lie, and is more in favour of the former than the latter
  10. You must be watching different games to me The players and manager are making the same mistakes now they were making 3 years ago when DS took over. The team is riddled with individual errors, the team look bereft of basic footballing skill, and we almost always suffer from the half time break. The manager insists on the same tactics and formation for nearly every games, and hardly ever makes changes when its clear the game has gotten away from us, instead making them only when forced, and more often than not sticks to like for like changes rather than trying to change a game. All that really changed between last season and this, is that we pressed harder and higher up the pitch. Once teams figured out that if you do the same to us, we make errors, our season changed. Smith is a one trick pony, and he's been found out.
  11. Smith needs to look in a mirror and tear a strip off himself. It was clear 10 mins into 2nd half that we had lost the midfield battle, but rather than strengthen our weakness he introduces an unfit grealish placing more pressure on our defence. Smith is so tactically naive. He has learnt nothing from his 2 years in the prem, and is not the man to take us into the top half. Guarantee come christmas we will be in the relegation places wondering where it all went wrong. Limp, the lot of them
  12. Almost zero chance of a top 10 finish. We've hardly won a game this year, no chance we win 3 on the trot, and even then, a number of teams would have to fall apart for us to do it. Leeds and Arsenal have much better, easier, games than us. We will finish 11th or 12th.
  13. Well, Watkins will be back, Grealish will likely be on the bench again. Hopefully Emi and Mings were just suffering from impacts and nothing serious. Its a weird game this as it does not matter to either side, so expect a dull affair. A few have said it, and maybe it is time to blood some of the kids and assess if they are ready to be involved next season.
  14. Did you miss the bit where i said 6 would mean we were had done well? 4 of those just cover the players whose contracts are expiring. Not really a big ask to improve on 2 players is it?
  15. I was looking at the first team squad and contracts due to expire and realised we are pretty short. Gk Emiliano Martínez Jun 30, 2024 Tom Heaton Jun 30, 2021 Jed Steer Jun 30, 2023 We're probably happy leaving Steer as No. 2, but do we have a young keeper to step in as No. 3? I don't think so, so we probably need a keeper. CB Tyrone Mings Jun 30, 2024 Ezri Konsa Jun 30, 2026 Kortney Hause Jun 30, 2022 Björn Engels Jun 30, 2024 Hause near the end of his contract, Engels completely out of favour. I'm not Mings' biggest fan. Think we need 2 CBs here. LB Matt Targett Jun 30, 2025 Neil Taylor Jun 30, 2021 Taylor's contract is up, so we need a LB here. RB Matty Cash Jun 30, 2025 Ahmed Elmohamady Jun 30, 2021 Fredric Guilbert Jun 30, 2025 Elmo out of contract, Fred out of favour, think we need a RB here. CM Douglas Luiz Jun 30, 2023 Marvelous Nakamba Jun 30, 2024 John McGinn Jun 30, 2025 Ross Barkley May 31, 2021 Morgan Sanson Jun 30, 2025 Jacob Ramsey Jun 30, 2025 Unfortunately, I don't think any of our cms are good enough to start every week. McGinn and Luiz are looking like squad players, jury is out on Sanson. Ramsey needs time to mature. 3 new cms for me here. LW Jack Grealish Jun 30, 2025 Trezeguet Jun 30, 2023 We've really missed Jack on the left and Trez has tried but he really isn't good enough. A LW is needed. RW Bertrand Traoré Jun 30, 2024 Anwar El Ghazi Jun 30, 2023 Traore and El Ghazi both have shown glimpses, but both lack consistency, and both lack the defensive quality expected in our style of play. We might even need 2 here, but at least 1. CF Ollie Watkins Jun 30, 2025 Wesley Jun 30, 2024 Keinan Davis Jun 30, 2024 Watkins has had a great season, but I still don't see him as a lone striker. We still don't know what Wesley can bring after his injury, and Keinan is not the answer. We need another striker. Practically a full new team needed over the summer. If we got half that number, we will have done well. But unless the additions are of a level that they walk into the first team, we are going to struggle to replicate this seasons performance.
  16. We'll do well to draw at this stage having been largely untroubled most of the game
  17. Mcginn pointing to noone to cover his man cos he is yet again out of position
  18. Hes playing as a target man, movement is not why hes playing. More comical defending
  19. Mcginn gives it away... Again...
