  1. Like the look of that lineup. Still expect it to be a near impossible task but that's exactly the team I wanted to see against the best opposition. Let's see how it turns out... hopefully the tired man city turn up today
  2. The worst thing about that is that it screams "we're in the top league and we don't want anyone else to join it". FFP needs totally scrapping as it doesn't serve the purpose for which it was created (see Bury for the most recent example), and in fact ensures teams cannot break the monopoly
  3. Just gives grounds to my previous comments that we are VERY lucky to have the owners we do. Hope we don't do anything to dissuade them that this club is the best one for them, and that they deliver the great expectations that they've set! Exciting times!
  4. Tactical as in Dean knew we would lose, and that dropping the guys that got us promoted after a defeat is much fairer? Also knowing that throwing new signings into a probable defeat isn't great for building morale/ confidence? How dare you imply our Dean would do such a thing?
  5. Anyone know why he wasn't on the bench at spurs? Not fancied, unfit, or injured?
  6. Can't see any major reason to change the starting line up against Bournemouth. Those that came on looked poor, although the situation they were thrown into would have been difficult for the best in the world to do anything about. Changes need to happen earlier against Bournemouth, even if we're winning I think or we risk finding ourselves falling flat at 70 mins again. But as for the starting 11: I don't rate Taylor or Elmo, but they performed acceptably well against spurs and keep their places for me. Luiz looked extremely unfit so unless he can get match fit in a week he stays on the bench. Nakamba may earn a call up if he is fit. Grealish had a mare of a game, but think he'll have got the wake up he needed. Kodjia looked woeful and Wesley needs time to get settled, but Wesley looked comfortably the better of the two. Only possible thing to change I think will be on the wings, but they didn't really get much chance to show themselves in the opposing half. I'd go with trez and Jota (even though I love aeg), as I think el Ghazi would offer the biggest threat against tired legs and might benefit from the confidence a good late cameo will offer. Heaton Elmo Engels Mings Taylor Hourihane McGinn Grealish Jota Wesley Trez
  7. Jota and Luiz looked very off the pace, although possibly to be expected coming on to that amount of pressure against a CL finalist in your first ever premier league game. Hopefully couple more weeks will see them settle but impossible to judge them on that opportunity. Everyone else should have got the wake up call we needed to step up this season, hopefully none more so than Jack. You don't get that much time in the Premier League. Promising performances across the back 4 and Heston. until the last 25 minutes they looked great, then they looked horribly exposed thanks to everyone else being on their arses. Looking forward to seeing us against lesser opposition (of which there is plenty) and when everyone is up to speed and have a few games of understanding under our belts. Didn't agree with trez coming off, should have been AEG. Luiz did nothing although by then the game was lost. Kodjia looked shocking, so poor substitutions all around. Referee was atrocious (both real and virtual).
  8. Spurs fans deriding a decision go our way... bless them
  9. I worry about bringing a more defensive minded player on for hourihane. With the ref the way he is luiz would just get booked and give the ref an excuse to award a penalty. Not sure why trez was taken off over el ghazi
  10. Commentators also biased. I miss the championship.... Surely the defender ran into McGinn and made contact with his legs. How is that not a penalty?
  11. Not helping ourselves with the ref, but he is severely biased based on the display so far
  12. Was happening on both wifi and 4g connections using stock android internet browser. Re installing stock android internet app made no difference. Seems to be working fine on chrome browser app Edit: happening on chrome too. Seems to only be on certain pages and after the ads finish loading so suspect it is ad related. Cheers
  13. Having an issue when accessing the forum on my phone. Periodically I'll be automatically redirected to a spam website with pop ups. The site is something like lpserverdomain stating a "reward is waiting". Have browsed the web looking for clues but found nothing and only seems to be happening on this website. Anyone having similar issues?
  14. Maybe... On the topic of sales, if we don't need the money and we aren't getting good value in return then I don't see much benefit in selling the reserves. Tish probably an exception... Get as many out on loan with recall options Never know what disaster injuries might strike, what reserve players may turn a corner and what a good season might do to the value of our fringe players. That said, if balancing the books is needed then get whatever we can and cut loose now. Most have had their chance to prove themselves and unlikely they'll improve at this stage
