    Tom Heaton

    I am so shocked how clumsy he was for that penalty. I'm sure he's a great keeper, but WTF (I just watched the extended highlights).
  2. They have a much better starting left back, but you know that and I know you know because you did a smiley face.
  3. Haha, always the contrarian. Was it you who was hoping we lost a few times last season so people would stop thinking Dean Smith was capable of getting us promoted? I'm sure there was something like that. I half expect that if people were praising Taylor and Elmo you'd say something like, 'I look forwards to Guilbert and Targett coming in so we can get rid of this idea that Tayor and Elmo are Premier League standard players.' Because are they really good enough? Taylor was got rid of by a relegation-bound Swansea and sold to the Championship, where a lot of the time he didn't even make the squad, sometimes so we had Hause as back up LB, who is a CB. Elmo has been solid enough, but it is so obvious he is lacking going forwards (as is Taylor—but Elmo is a bit better).
  4. But we haven't lost twice because of Taylor and Elmo—we've lost because of mistakes from other players. If those mistakes hadn't happened they might well have, in their roles, helped us get points. It's not their fault in defence that we have to outscore the opposition at the moment. It's been Luiz x2, Jack x1, Heaton x1—I can't remember the other goal.
  5. We could easily have won yesterday if we hadn't thrown goals away. We could well have got a draw against Spurs. It's obviously too soon to point to Sheffield United and say they'll be fine and then do the same to us and say we won't. It's way too early. There has been good so far. We'll all enjoy some points as soon as possible though!
  6. I was thinking this yesterday. I could see this happening somewhere down the line.
  7. In fairness, they have played two teams you'd say were relegation candidates. We haven't. We hurt ourselves yesterday with mistakes that led to both goals.
  8. I hope that getting the new full backs in will make a bit of a difference there. Guilbert looked like he could get some assists.
  9. I completely and wholeheartedly agree with Villalad, and I expect you'd be in a very very small minority here. They weren't good enough for the Championship!
  10. I rate Keinan too. Apart from the initial run in the team, where he made a huge difference and helped really get our season going, he's suffered with injuries and not had many chances. He played excellently and was so close to scoring plenty of times and, sure, maybe has things to work on. But I think he has real potential.
  11. In one hundred years some internet archeologist with very niche interests is going to find the wonder that is this thread and write a book on it. The main question will ask, how can the same conversation happen for years, repeating over and over again? Especially when the only evidence that is ever added is Scott Hogan continuing to do nothing in football games for different managers and different teams.
  12. Edinburgh is pretty damn nice to be fair.
  13. This bit was impressive. As for the end, I don't think it's actually possible for El Ghazi to foul there. I think Wesley was fouled once or twice in moments where people accused him of being soft too. How can refs be this biased and bad in the Premier League?
  14. There were about two comments and exactly the sort of conversation that could have happened in a pub. Nothing to see here.
