  1. Got to go. Club won't pull the trigger just got to hope Deano walks for the good of the club, but would be mad on a personal level to quit. Can't blame him for staying on. But we are down if he stays, players haven't bought into the system he is playing. They are all trying their own thing and it shows
  2. I take the point, but no. I'm willing to bet any money he is absolutely fine. Was humiliated by Ming's and grealish and to stubborn to just get up
  3. First time criticising him, but he needs to go. There is simply no excuse for how soft and easy to beat we are. Even in championships we were conceding so many shots at goal. Almost every game this season it's been between 20-35 shots conceded. Every side needs to be well drilled and hard to beat first and foremost. We are neither of those things, absolute shambles defensively throughout the whole team. The team aren't good enough and too many of the summer midfield signings are weak and cowardly. So not expecting anyone to keep us up or magically make us better, but Smith clearly hasn't a clue in how to set up a well drilled team who are tough to beat
  4. I have never criticised him and always fought his corner. But sorry after that absolute gutless display of cowardice he can get out. Promote someone from u23s. Should never put the shirt on again. Absolute disgraceful
  5. Isn't his contract up in May? So won't get anything for him
  6. If we stay up and that's a big IF. Then nothing shy of coutinho money gets him. even then I'd like us to show a real show of ambition and knock it back. If we go down, he will be on his way for about 60-70 mill

    Keinan Davis

    I've been banging on for years that Davis should be starting. People on here bang on about his goal record but he has barely had a decent run in the team which is always tough for a young striker. For me he occupies and troubles defenders like no one else in our squad. This alone allows us to retain possession and play 15-20 yards further up the pitch where Jack, AEG and McGinn can trouble the opposition. It's a huge advantage and one we need to start using quickly otherwise it's lights out
  8. This. It wasn't even a difficult decision Konsa jumps in the air and while fully both feet off the floor gets shoved out from under it ffs
  9. Reports saying Chester is keen on an MLS move. Imagine it's financially attractive. For me what he did for the club last year, causing lasting damage to his own body means we owe him some credit. I'd be disappointed if we played hardball for a bigger fee. Should do right by Chester if this deal gets him another few years playing despite his now desperate knee issues
  10. I said at the time don't be surprised to not see a fully fit and productive McGinn again this season. Having dislocated an ankle you can be back in 8-12 weeks but the ligaments and tendons around the ankle are very liable for tweaks and strains when back running and twisting. Is a very frustrating injury as once the actual injury is healed due to the complexity of the joint lots of little niggles usually follow. While he will be back I wouldn't be surprised if he is quite stop start for rest of season
  11. I think he is agreeing that the big man little man works. But stating the club clearly had intentions to play a lone big man in Wesley this year. This transfer moves away from that idea, showing perhaps poor planning or a complete change in direction admitting that the Wesley plan hasn't worked If we revert back to the original plan next year Samatta becomes a bit part squad player again. If we don't then potentially Wesley is the one pushed out. I think that's his point anyway?!
  12. Lads chill out. There isn't anyone coming in before Saturday. Don't build your hopes up, it's the hope that kills you
  13. Am I right in thinking, as we are only allowed to register two loan players at once. that as we have signed Drinkwater and Reina, we are unable to sign any strikers on loan? If that's right what the fook are we playing at?? Drinkwater was an absolutely nothing signing. Reina I understand but now we are seeing a few clubs open to striker loans and we are totally out of the frame. Just do not understand it
  14. On the Haaland deal, the reports are they paid a £22 million fee, plus £15 mill for raiola, £10 million to Haalands dad'sAND insisted on a £55 million release clause. Raiola as much of a disgusting character he is is a genius. He kept him away from clubs that he could remain at for his whole career, and engineered a deal that sees him get paid again in a year or two. I wish clubs would just band together and absolutely refuse to deal with him. Choke him out the game
  15. There is no way Gerrard leaves rangers for us. When he took that job people thought he was mad as celtic were so far ahead with much bigger budget. In a short period of time he appears to have swung it completely back to rangers. Convinced they will win the league this year. His stock will rise massively. No way he leaves now and joins us at huge risk of getting relegated..would be a hugely unnecessary risk to his new career
  16. There was an interesting article about four weeks ago where they had a team meeting and he opened up the floor and apparently loads of the squad hammered tactics and thought we were far too open and easy to play against. I thought at the time it sounded worrying but we then beat Newcastle. But for me it sounds like he may have lost the dressing room. The players don't look like they are playing for him Either way for me, and I feel like a prick saying this, but he has to go. Pull the trigger now and do everything to get Rafa in asap. If we keep him any longer we will be going down. Thanks for last season Deano, genuinely gutted how it's turned out
  17. You can see his speed when he finds his dashboard before switching cameras to his face.
  18. He winds me up posting videos to Instagram of him driving whilst filming himself and talking into camera whilst doing 50/60mph. Idiot will end up killing someone
  19. Said it before, I'll say it again. We don't even need an out and out goal getter. We need a proper target man who can hold up ball and bring others into play, while being a threat from high balls into box. This isn't just rose tinted specs, but the best value for money who has all of those attributes but has gone goal shy is Benteke. Genuinely think he could be available for around £10 million. Even if he doesn't score he holds up and links play well and is always a threat in the air In our current predicament and budget and with palace well out of the relegation scrap we won't find a better option in January
  20. Forgetting the Wesley debate. Which btw I agree he has to be dropped. However today was the first time I was genuinely disappointed in Smith's tactics, team selection and game management. 1. guilbert had to start, he is a better defender and his pace would have helped massively against the vardy threat. 2. Hourihane has to play our home games (I thought we had finally settled on that) playing luiz and nakamba today set us up to try and get a point in a shut out. But our strength is attacking, we were imho very unlikely to keep it goalless with Leicester so should have had more attacking option on pitch in CH. 3. The Ming's injury was pure amateur hour. He had pulled his hamstring. You get him off immediately and hope we get to play him in some of the Xmas fixtures if lucky. You don't send him back on to try it out FFS. He was immobile, unable to run and get into position. It cost us the goal and most likely has made the injury worse. It is moments like this the manager has to intervene and get him off there and then. I was sat a row from where Ming's went down and even Ming's was shaking his head and telling the medics he needed to come off. Putting him back on the pitch was absolute idiocy
  21. I've defended him up to now, but sorry this lad isn't a top level footballer. He has zero attributes needed to be a centre forward. Can't head, can't shoot,. Can't dribble. Can't run with ball. Dreadful footballer. Hopefully Davis is back next week so we can have a break from having to watch him. How kodija cannot get minutes at the moment is laughable
  22. That's cos usually being red dotted is enough to make 99% of people think twice. Sadly the people who usually get tasered are either ones with mental health issues acting out violently or those in some sort of drug fueled rage. Who cannot see reason
  23. Again completely incorrect. Believe it or not taser is approved as a lesser use of force than both baton and Pava spray hard to believe, but that is what is trained. In 99% of cases once taser is deployed and suspect cuffed they have no further symptoms or pain. Obviously no one can know underlying medical issues that may complicate it. Which is why personally I believe it should be treated higher. However tasers are regularly used to gain compliance by single crewed officers who are up against bigger stronger individuals. They are drawn, red dotted and warned and if they still try to attack then they are tasered. No idea what happened in this case, just stating the usual use and proper procedure
  24. The only thing I'm pretty sure of, is that you know absolutely nothing in terms of facts. As nothing has been released. An unarmed man covered in blood raging he had murdered his family. A taser is said to be a less impactive option than both baton and Pava spray. Thats a fact as it's deemed to be less long lasting effects. That is the training police recieve. The only supposed facts came from sky news. Like paula Quinn, the idiot woman who claimed to have witnessed the cops kicking him repeatedly from her window. A window that was later proven to have no view of the area where the incident occured. So as I say, let's wait and see shall we
