  1. I am also not ITK and I heard the same... ...on this forum, posted from twitter. And literally none of this is evidence that he's had an argument with Smith.
  2. You don't know there's been an issue and Chester is a decent CB too. Only one of them makes the bench. Up to a few weeks ago was Hause frozen out or did he just not make the bench? Was Targett frozen out at the start of the season or did he just not make the bench? Is Jota frozen out or is he just not making the bench?
  3. With the logic some people use your'd expect every club to announce all their signings on January the first. In this scenario if clubs don't announce players that early then those involved are so stupid they didn't even realise the window was open.
  4. Have you been down the gym tonight?
  5. That's not a pun! You could change his name for anyone elses. Sí señor, feed don't_do_it_doug he will score...
  6. You don't actually know what's happened. Maybe Kodjia wanted a new contract. Maybe he's refusing to play. Point is, we don't know.
  7. He's definitely pissed off. It's his job on the line at the end of the day.
  8. It worked ok against Leicester. Kodjia was awful last time he played.
  9. I genuinely don't think it all works the way you think it does.
  10. ...and then he bizarrely played Tuanzebe at right back and Jedinak as CB. He'd lost the plot.
  11. I agree. We sing it like we're being original but it's someone else's song. I'm embarrassed when I hear it.
  12. Thanks above there is another Twitter post. Finally. I'm not actually joking.
  13. He's still getting games in a much better team than we are. He's someone who can hold the ball up and win headers. Wes has, what, four goals or something? Yet even with his low goal tally, at least up to a point this season, scoring goals wasn't our problem. It's a team game. We are shockingly light up front and I think he'd make a huge difference to having nobody.
  14. Oh OK. All good! As I say, I have no idea. I just hope so. I'm ready for people who can do a job in the prem. N'Zonzi, Benteke—seriously I think these types of players can make a difference. We're light and we lack experience.
  15. The truth is we needed to fill the squad up too. How much did we spend on average over all those players? It was peanuts for players in the premier league. They have produced about what could be expected for their prices, generally speaking. This season was always going to be this kind of challenge. That's not to say we couldn't have made some shrewd alternative signings, but it's far too easy to say all that in hindsight. EDIT: It also doesn't help that it's our most important players who keep getting injured too (so far we've been without Grealish, McGinn, Mings, Heaton, Targett (important when the backup is Taylor) for periods, Wes to a degree (he has had some good games), and Davies (as a useful alternative who can hold the ball up)).
  16. Do you still think we signed all those players at the beginning of January? What I think is completely irrelevant tbh! I don't have a clue. Obviously, I hope so. EDIT: My opinion is that the basic truth is that we're likely not a very attractive option for 'top notch', and if we're hamstrung by financial fair play then that is serious: there are potential points deductions to be had. We can achieve what we want without 'top notch' anyway. We obviously want 17th+ and then a chance to build with a bit more balance next season.
  17. Without that spending spree we wouldn't even be able to field a first 11, let alone subs too! The team would be (of those fit, which seems relevant): Nyland, Guilbert, Chester, _________, Taylor, Hourihane, Lansbury, Grealish, Elmo, Kodjia, _____________ and we'd have the subs of: __________________, _____________________, _____________________, ____________________, ______________________, ________________________, _______________________. And we'd have literally zero points.
  18. Is that Darren Bent who we signed on the 18th of January? Or John Carew who we signed on the 22nd of January? Or Ashley Young who we signed on the 23rd of January? Every year it's the same—people expect these transfers to be simple. Every year it blows my mind that people haven't learnt yet that the whole market in January is pretty much a stagnant mess. Not to mention that back in the day when we signed Young and Carew, we were a pretty well-established Premier League team not in the relegation zone. Sure, we were struggling when Bent came, but we were still an established Premier League team. So we signed one player early (Kalinic) once, therefore all transfers in January are easy.
  19. Are you following a transfer window that exists only in your head by any chance?
  20. He's 21 and he's done little of note in League 1. You sound overly optimistic imo!
  21. Your name should be madness. Or insanity. Or nonsense.
