  1. I love digging through this thread and finding gems like this.
  2. Heaton is an absolute monster, or best signing on this evidence. He alone will ensure our safety this season. Hourihane showing definitively why he must be around the starting 11 - defensively he's suspect, but his set pieces are game changers. It was nice to see Jimmy too. He didn't have much chance to prove himself, but he clearly offers something different to Wes. I'd say he's plenty good enough to be backup this season. All in all, if we play like this all season, we're going to be just fine.
  3. Hourihane will be better as cover or a rotation option for Grealish and McGinn. He rocks in those positions, not so much as a DM.
  4. Marvelous in for Hourihane and that's probably our best 11.
  5. I think they're struggling with his medical because he keeps slide tackling the doctors when they try to check him over.

    Back in 2015 there didn't seem to be any clear idea. They just seemed to be trying to get as many people through the door as possible. This time, every player has his role, and judging by preseason so far, they already know roughly what they needed to do. Also, PL experience is overrated. Football is football, no matter where you play it. They're well aware of the higher quality of the league, and as long as they keep that in mind and do what they do best, there's no reason why they shouldn't cope. As for a 20-goal-a-season striker, we don't need one of those yet. Survival is mission number 1, and for that a 12-15 goal return is fine for the striker, as long as there are goals coming from elsewhere. I have faith that Wes can provide that many.

  8. I don't think it's helped that he's been compared to Grealish so much these last couple of years. There are no similarities between the players other than they came through our academy - people think that alone means he'll be just as good. There's a player in there somewhere, he's still plenty young enough to get better. He just needs confidence and room to grow, possibly out of Jack's shadow.
  9. I've never liked him as a DM, but he's always produced when he's been playing further up. He's a quality player when he's up for it, but he loses concentration far too much to be a regular PL starter. He'll be better served as a backup to Grealish and McGinn, or as an impact sub to shake things up a bit. I'm a big fan of Conor when he's doing well. I genuinely think he has something to offer us next season, even if he is one of our weaker midfield options now.
  10. I think it's important to have a backup option who offers something completely different to your first choice striker while being capable of playing on the same system. He could be a real wildcard when our back is against the wall.
  11. He looks a class above in that league. To me that's a sign he's got a good chance of stepping up.
  12. That Wesley goal was a corker. I like the bit at the end too, with Henry looking despondent in the rain. Mad to think he could've been our manager at one point.
  13. Gee, is that all? That wouldn't even fill up my car.
  14. It's amazing reading the first few pages in this thread compared to the last few. We truly have been blessed this summer.
