  1. I'm also in 'the f*** watching him play for another team camp'. A 300k a week contract should already be drafted for if we stay up.

    I generally hate when people suggest moving centre halves into midfield 'because they are half decent on the ball' but I would stick him as a holding midfielder. He isn't a centre half for me the way he deals with high balls and crosses. By accident I watched him at Bournemouth at half time earlier on this season as sub doing the passing close touch warm ups. I actually thought his touch was phenomenal, stood out more than Jota and Conor who were knocking about with him. Apparently he has deputised in midfield before at Charlton. He'd do for me instead of Drinkwater. I'd keep it very simple and just get him to shield. I do think he is a player there but I just don't think he's a CB.
  3. Bit too much doom and gloom on this thread imo. Yesterday was shocking (the defending was worse than the Lescott/Richards era) but it was par for the course without Mings. It was the same with the awful performances around xmas, yes the new formation got a load of credit at Burnley but I would say it was more his return. I have said it all season we are basically a 4 man team, Grealish, Mings Mcginn and the keeper. The rest are periphery players who aren't good enough and basically follow the lead of the aforementioned. However, I think we can upgrade it to 5 based on Samatta's performance. Now Targett is playing out of his skin (so possibly 6?). Luiz is still showing glimpses. So we are getting better no about doubt it, but it's a given if we lose Mings / Grealish we are not going to win and if we lose either for the season and we are relegated. But we knew that anyway?
  4. Hopefully as captain he gets into a few of our more gentile players and tells them they need to stop being so passive. If they followed his lead we'd be alright. He's the only one I can see that fights his corner with refs and opposing players for everything and anything and generally has the bollocks you need to win points in games like today. It's an un underrated quality, and we had spades of it season with Mcginn, Tammy and the old heads in the changing room. It's poor that a side that rely on his quality so much can't at least step up and match his fight.
  5. Regardless of VAR you still have to scream blue murder to get the decisions you want. Put some pressure on the ref/VAR to make a decision. Only Grealish seems to get this. We even rolled over and it took like good little boys when Watford took the piss and won the penalty when Targett got injured. The mentality of our side is so frustrating. It really wins me up. With Terry on board you'd think we'd be a bit more c*unty but we're passive in every possible way.
  6. We have too many airy fairy players. When recruiting, Suso and Smith severly under-estimated how physical the premier league is. You could see looking at the tunnel on day 1 at Spurs, comparing their side to ours - It was like men against boys. Yes, its important to play but you have to earn the right to do that by holding your own. The likes of Nakamba, Luiz, El ghazi, Conor etc can't do that away from home and we get bullied. With the signings in Jan they've done nothing to remedy that.
  7. We've been shite for the past 2months. Fair enough we've picked up some results here and there but for the most part we've been awful.
  8. Its gonna be absolutely f**king rocking tonight lads. We need to make every tackle sound like a goal. Rattle em into submission. I want the Everton game to look like a wake.
  9. Was almost his Ricky Villa moment last night. He came close to it in the play off final version against Fulham a few years back. He's gonna nail it one day.
  10. Just watched his interview. I know they are pretty meaningless and they all tend to say the same thing but he's definitely got something about him, an edge. To quote one of the great orators of our time, Apollo Creed, (and the band..survivor) hes got the eye of the tiger. Im all in
  11. I've definitely heard Gregory say himself it was him and not doug who pulled out of the Keane deal.
  12. Not wanting to be a negative arsehole but if this fella has a mininum fee release clause. (apparently he does) then he shouldve been in on day 1 not day 16.
  13. Couldn't give a toss about Reina. In fact i wish we weren't in for him just to have a bit more clarity on Piatek.

    You think everybody's good!
  15. At the end of the day we are getting a player who 2 years was signed for £35 million. Whether you think that fee was OTT or not there is no doubt that if he puts the effort in he can improve our midfield. It sounds like he's done his f**king around and wants to get his career on track so it could just be perfect timing for us.
