  1. I got into the Open End for that Liverpool game as a teenager without paying. They let us in free due to the crush outside I think.
  2. If Jordan Henderson is an England international then Josh is a shoe in. That bloke is an absolute waste of time. I have no idea what managers and pundits see in him. He seems to be teflon coated as every England game I watch he's crap (well to be more balanced certainly no more than average) and no-one seems to mention it.
  3. Probably do an Eisa. Get sold to L1 and be a top player at that level. Then we'll wonder why he wasn't given a chance here.
  4. Hesgoal stopped working for me? Now it's back!
  5. My favourite has been Brighton but obviously not an option this season. Nice place and a ground which is easy to get to from the centre by train or bus.
  6. If he was still here, and he did get in the team, I would find it slightly depressing. He was never the answer and we needed to move on.
  7. I'm not sure I share that optimism. Where we are lacking is up front and Afobe won't be back this season. So even with all the other injured players back I think the strikers aren't good enough for Top 6. Whether we have a plan for January we'll have to see. We need to change our approach from recent Jan windows if we are serious about competing for the play offs.
  8. I still don't really understand why Eisa was written off without getting a chance. He has proven he can score goals - albeit it at a lower level. Comparing their records at the same level it doesn't really make sense that AS is being persevered with while Eisa was sold without getting any real chance. Scoring goals is a talent in itself. One which Eisa has demonstrated he is more of a natural at then Semenyo. Maybe AS will prove to be an asset but I don't see any evidence he will score many goals. What we need and don't have is a natural finisher. Afobe looked like he would be that player for us, I can't see AS filling that role.
  9. Sorry to sound like a stuck record but which injuries being sorted will make that change? What we have coming back are players where our cover is pretty good (apart maybe from LB). What we won't have unless we recruit again is the kind of finishing power that will get us into automatic contention. The fact we are now reduced to scouring the free agent market for two of the spine of the team is a bit ridiculous, given all the money from sales. I agree we have been very unlucky with injuries but the basic problem needs to be acknowleged i.e. MA and co haven't recruited as well as some seem to suggest. Too many wingers and CBs and not enough quality striker cover.
  10. I suspect we will end up just outside the playoffs again. Unfortunately we don't have a very well balanced squad. We have a number of injured players who should be fit in the next month or two. That will leave us with a lot of CBs, plenty of good midfield options but very little in the way of firepower up front. We've been saying for at least two seasons that we needed reinforcements up front. It is really unlucky that Afobe is going to be out all season. However we shouldn't have got into a position where the loss of one new player leaves us fecked. This is a culmination of two years of poor (or no) striker recruitment.
  11. AS may be doing it in training but in his, admittedly limited, minutes in the first team he hasn't been that impressive. He is still young, raw and unproven. Hope he turns out to be a star and prove me wrong. I don't really get the hype so far and would rather we played AW up front myself rather than waste him out wide.
  12. Are you saying that Afobe isn't injured then. Suggesting that the club has gone as far as allowing the BBC to publish fake news? I really can't see them letting it go that far. I think this is wishful thinking.
  13. I've always liked Lineker. I think it was all those World Cup goals that won me over. Would be interesting to know what BT pay him to do the Champions League. If it's more then that suggests the BBC have done a reasonable deal.
  14. Maybe the club is keeping quiet about Afobe's injury as they think it might dent ticket sales? There will be a lot of sighing if FD is up front on his own - again.
  15. NE putting in his classy high crosses.....for who exactly?
  16. It would be odd, to say the least, for the Post to run this story and follow up with a list of possible replacements unless they have some evidence. I don't think we should be hopeful. It really staggers me the club says absolutely nothing. What is their media team for if not this? Wild rumours floating about and they stay shtum.
  17. IF it is true, the talk from LJ of double or even triple training sessions over the break would raise questions in my mind. We do seem to be picking up a lot of injuries and not all in first team games. Hoping it turns out to be bs though.
  18. I watched some of it and noticed him wincing and seeming to move a bit awkwardly at times. Hope there are no repercussions for us.
  19. Watching the second half and Leeds must've had 80%+ possession.
  20. I think TM could stay in the side if we bring Williams in and play three at the back. That seems a better way for us to play two strikers and keep some solidity than the 442 we tried yesterday. It looked like our lack of confidence at the back was more about the system than the players.
  21. I was very disappointed with Brownhill today. If Nagy is back after the break I would be all for keeping HNM in and dropping JB. Doubt LJ will do that though.
  22. Glatzel cost more than Famara and has been totally anonymous. People like to have a go at FD but try looking at some other players out there in that price range.
  23. It took me a little while to notice the tiny red pen that lets you change your method of delivery! I still haven't worked out how, if you buy 2 tickets, to have one as an e-ticket and the other to print. In fact I'm still not sure if you can. I like mine on my phone. If I get one for my 83yo old man he can't cope with that. So he likes them printed. Couldn't seem to split the method when I tried though so had to print both!
  24. No - he is the manager Mrs Richards!
