  1. Every team we’ve played has had fitness problems and injuries. It’s a weird year and we need to be better than we were, irrespective of fitness
  2. He’s not our saviour. He’s a very naughty boy.
  3. Gareth Southgate gives out parking tickets to guests that use his drive He offers no discount for early payment
  4. Footage of the future kings at the next FA meeting
  5. (If the talk of four players and 100m to spend etc etc. is to be believed) Our two weakest positions this season have been ST/Winger, so I think that’s where most of our budget sits and don’t think 50m+ on those positions is out of the question.
  6. Bet he has a few ideas on who to target in the transfer market too - I’d love to see who’s on Craig’s list
  7. Josh Onomah starting lively - not 3m + Grealish lively - but lively nonetheless
  8. I agree - not sure someone could come in and within 3 or 4 weeks be up to speed on everything and be an integral part of a plan. I don't think this would be a bad year for us to go down the predictable route - 3 or 4 big signings that are 'known'. Yes, we may overpay compared to some obscure European gems but in the grand scheme of things we're hopefully building a structure that means in two or three seasons that will be a thing of the past.
  9. Having a first eleven of superstars is of course what everyone wants, but look at most sides outside top 7/8 and they have 3 or 4 good to great players maximum. Having a known and consistent playing structure and style with a few good players can’t be underestimated. For us, Heaton, Mings, McGinn, Luiz, Grealish (hope so), new striker, new winger would be more than enough for us to progress. We’ve tightened up under Smith now and have a platform to grow from. That said, go down and we risk losing it all
  10. Maybe being optimistic, but I don't think we're too far away from being a solid top 8/10 side challenging for Europe If we stayed up (please), signed a top class Striker, Winger, CB (20-25m each) and convinced Grealish to stay with those signings, I think we would have a really good squad.
  11. It's all confidence - think he'll play well when the team is playing well. He's not a striker that will create a chance out of nothing for himself, there are very few players around that can.
  12. When would the new season start? Has it been released yet? Hopefully the quick turnaround will make us less likely to lose players. If we could sell Grealish and Mings for a good amount and reinvest £40-£50m of it on 4 quality players (Winger/ST, AM,CB,CM) I think we'd be in a good position
