  1. That's absolutely shocking. Literally nobody wants that to be called offside apart from Everton fans. That's as bad as Wesley's heel offside.
  2. This slight on Jack that he holds the ball too long. Give me strength. He draws defenders out of position and when he does pass it off or shoot, it's usually a big chance. Aston Villa fans want the ball at Jack's feet as often and as long as he wants. If he loses the ball occasionally, it's a small price to pay.
  3. I'm absolutely staggered this isn't being howled down everywhere it's reported. Disgusting proposal that would ruin football in England. The Premier League has just gotten really good in the last few years with more teams challenging. The "Special Voting Rights" proposal is absolutely horrendous. **** off to your European super league if you want a closed system. Disgusting. Edit: It's bigger than football. It's American billionaires trying to destroy an enormous part of English culture for profit.
  4. I can't believe that Man City would be able to take him back without his permission. That said, I think if they activated the clause, he'd go.
  5. It blows me away that we have a Brazilian international who just played 90 minutes. He's gone from strength to strength with us. Hope that buyback clause is worth a bit.
  6. He's going to keep dominating these games and making himself impossible to ignore. We all knew when he came in he'd run the show and he's the best player on the pitch in his first start. Imagine him with Sterling and Kane and Rashford around him instead of the backups.
  7. He'll never get space for those lucky tap ins against the big clubs! The goals are just the icing on the cake. His workrate is insane and opponents can't help but worry about him. Very intelligent with his positioning. He's gonna score plenty in this league.
  8. Just a magical day. This was no fluke. We could have easily scored more. So proud of the team, they just seem so in sync. This is going to be a fun season if we can keep that up.
  9. I'm absolutely thrilled with this window, we've kept Jack and then clearly strengthened in 5 positions. Always happy for more, but if our business ends here, I think we've done very, very well.
  10. Thrilled with this one! Comes in straight away and makes us much stronger in the middle of the park. It might only be for a season but he might put us in a position where we can sign someone of his calibre permanently next summer. Onwards and upwards!
  11. Great performance. We absolutely could have pressed for more but it was a really clinical performance at both ends. A clean sheet and spanking a team at their place. An assured, comfortable performance. All of the new additions were excellent, especially Cash. It would have been nice to hold a bit more possession and be a bit tidier. We'll need to work on that to compete with better teams.
  12. I think he definitely should play, even if it's just off the bench for the first game. He was good in the cup game and we want to keep that momentum up IMO.
  13. What a great ball in and such a finessed finish! Love another scorer on debut!
  14. While I generally agree that loans aren't ideal when you're in the top league, an experienced professional with 200 games of Premier League football under his belt will put us in a better position to buy someone of his quality at the end of the season instead of having to loan. If relegation wasn't still a potential threat I'd prefer we develop our own players, but for now it's important to establish ourselves in the league and he might be worth a position or two on the table.
  15. Given how poor we were from set pieces and our generally smaller attacking line, it's a dream to have a CB who pops up for corners like that. Hopefully it's a skill he can build.
  16. Saving a penalty in a clean sheet has to be the keeper equivalent of a hat trick on debut. What an assured performance!
  17. Genuine pace completely changes how teams defend you. Gabby was ultimately a limited player, but in his prime teams were absolutely terrified of his pace and he burned teams time after time with it. We offered nothing on the counter last year. If Traore can open up space for Watkins and Grealish by pulling defenders out of position, we're a much more dangerous attacking team than we were last year.
  18. I absolutely love Gabby on twitter. Happy to get stuck in and speak his mind, and he's got a more astute football brain than you'd think.
  19. Love having the first team CB partnership wearing 4 and 5, and nice touch to replace the shirts.
  20. Another tap in from the 6 yard box, can't he score some real goals for once? Just a dream to have a player who can finish like this. His positioning and workrate are elite and he buries chances.
  21. Glad Watkins got 11, great result! I'm supportive of annual reshuffles. I like to think the first team should be mostly numbers in the 1-11 range. The last thing you want is some squad filler taking a key number.
  22. Having a lethal poacher with a high workrate will make everyone on the team better at carrying the ball because defenders will be pulled out of position. I hope.
  23. This is so exciting to watch! A genuine poacher type who reads the play well, positions himself well and can finish one touch from all sorts of positions. 26 goals without penalties is spectacular at Championship level. We'd have paid this much for Tammy last year if Chelsea didn't have the transfer ban, and I see this as just as good a signing. Absolutely thrilled. Most exciting signing since what, Carew?
  24. News is just coming out about these horrible stabbing attacks in Birmingham in the city centre. Not too much info yet about how many hurt, but I hope you're all safe!
