  1. One of the true undebatable greats. rest in peace.
  2. he looks like shrek, like......shreks brother. On the "best this / best that" argument, he has played what..... 80ish high level games? granted he has scored 53 ish goals in those games, but greatness is consistency, he needs to do this for the next 5-10 years to be classed among the greats. He has made a good start, looks like a great player, but he's literal miles off being debated in the same breath as the true greats. also, just being a great goal scorer wont get you in the "greatest ever" debates, the true greats are also great individual players, like Messi, Ronaldo,
  3. wow, thats worse than the other angles i saw. the LCD and RCD, along with the DM all within 2 feet of each other, on the far left of the pitch 15-20 yards beyond the half way line. so Welbeck is basically out of shot, near the half way line entirely by himself. That is seriously bad defending, sunday league stuff, and im not hyperbolic there......its literally something a few 16 year olds wouldnt do in 99.9% of situations. i literally dont understand how the defence and DM(s) have allowed themselves to get in such a mess, its pea brain stuff.
  4. I dont find it hard to understand though (i think). Arsenal, Liverpool & Leicester are teams that came out to play, attack us and treat us like we are the "lesser team", that seems to suit as with this team we are deadly counter punchers. Brighton for example, sat back and nullified our counter game, we couldnt break them down easily, and they actually hit us on the counter. Basically, we are currently a deadly counter team, but not a great team when the opposition sits back and we have to try and break them down (also we are terribly open to counter ourselves when we are on
  5. Slight licence taken with positions......gotta play that 2-5-3 formation..... Enckleman Richards - Lescott N'Zogbia - Jenas - Ireland - Sylla - Tonev Bowery - McCormack - Helenius so hard tho, could easily put 20 plus players up there for consideration.
  6. lovely to win our first 4, but now we have lost 3 out of the last 4....
  7. that first goal brighton scored tho, our closest defensive player (to our goal), was 10ft inside THEIR half.......shocking tbh.
  8. will be interesting to see how the season develops. I think its clear how to beat us (or at least make life very hard for us) and some teams seem to have figured it out already. (or smaller teams that arent programmed to attack and expect to roll us over) If teams come on to us we are deadly on the counter, Arsenal, Leicester & Liverpool saw that, where if teams sit back a bit, press and harry, get in our faces, we arent so good at breaking them down, and in that scenario we are prone to being hit on the break ourselves. when we are on the front foot we seemed to get opened
  9. Weirdly our problem last season was we did ok versus the teams around us but couldnt beat any of the top 6-10. This season we seem to only win against the top 6 and cant beat anyone else? the irony.
  10. yeah he did have a quiet ish game by his standards, but tbf nobody else set the world on fire. Foden prob deserved it, but grealish played ok, he nearly created 2 or 3 chances, looked busy and did his usual nonchalant thing.....like a boss. tbh.......my missus hates football.....and even she has watched the last few games and keeps saying "that grealish is an exciting player isn he". I say...."do u fancy him or summat?"...............but.....if he can get my missus excited to watch anything football related cus he's a silky exciting player.....just imagine the appeal he h
  11. ye, probably the best generation of players we have had since since the mid/late 90s, and southgate is going to wreck them with his rubbish formation, rubbish tactics.....and his general rubbishness.
  12. to think they paid 80m for him....bajeesus....literal daylight robbery.

    yep, i have read moneyball so many times, there are chapters about players being traded to other teams and that player sitting in a chair shocked to silence that he ended up at team A, rather than team B or C etc that they expected. Although, (again in moneyball), it mentions some players have clauses inserted in to their contracts that they cant be traded to X or Y club, so i suppose it depends on how much power the individual player has to get clauses inserted?
  14. lets be real, if Man City come in for him and tell him he is part of their plans, he will go. I hope they either a) dont activate it, or b) if they consider activating it to sell him on, we offer X amount to buy out the clause.
  15. Elneny is positive for corona then.
  16. Ashley Cole - "Jack wasnt this player last season" Dude, do u even watch football?!?
  17. so....how does that lineup....lineup?? Pickford Walker - Dier - Mings Tripper - Henderson - Rice - Chilwell Mount - Grealish Kane ???
  18. All 8 goals for Villa so far, amazingly 4 left foot, 2 right foot, 2 headers.
  19. i have a feeling he wont make the euro squad. I 100% think he should go to the euros, and thats a completely unbiased view, he is a mercurial talent and has something no other player has in the squad imo. however......i have a feeling Southgate will find a way not to take him to the euros.
