  1. Fair play to the kid, think this was the right decision by him. Gets a chance to develop with first team football, something don't think he'd have gotten from one of the top six clubs. Softly softly catchy monkey and all that. Think he'll iron out some of those lapses in concentration he tends to have, which I believe were in part to do with playing LB, not his natural position. 13mil for someone that is unproven at CB is a great deal personally, though would have preferred he was bought by a bigger club and loaned back to us. Pressure is on for Lloyd though, he's now mentally out of the comfort zone which was academy progression.
  2. I’m hoping for an Ajax win tomorrow personally. I’m not a fan of same nation finals for the pure reason described in your first paragraph, just not in th spirit of European cup history imo, the competition should represent the best sides from differing football cultures pitting their wits against one another. We’ve got the fa cup If we want to watch to English sides play each other. What a game though, love to watch Liverpool purely for the way they play football, and that would go for any team in the past.
  3. Its not about expectations, Im looking at the cold hard facts. Finishing 18th out of 24 in the home league table is the reason we are not in the playoffs. 2017-18 we finished 10th, 2016-17 14th, 2015-16 (near relegation season) 20th As for expectations at the start of each season, Im forever the optimist, comes with the territory of supporting a local team, so you always start a clean slate season with a feeling playoffs or higher might be possible. Guess thats why real fans stick by England because there is always one season that will buck the trend in your lifetime, a case of 'you never know'.
  4. How have we overachieved? Pretty sure its a given in football its easier to win your homes games than it is away. So in my books we've underachieved
  5. Think it was the Celtic 3rd goal yesterday....check it out, literally Sunday league defending. What an embarressment!
  6. Bit torn with their plight though. Of course wouldn’t wish it on their fans, but reckon they’ve been cursed ever since Gartside their former prem chairman seriously recommended a closed shop in the prem, so no relegation to and from. Reckon the football gods cast a spell on them at that moment.
  7. Watched bassini on ssn the other day....came across as a ‘billy bullsh*t market trader’ that would try and sell you a fake Rolex as being real. What a class A bellend, defo better off without him.
  8. Thanks Dave! Anyway! Not gonna go and get all depressed yet, we can still do it.
  9. Can someone post up the stats please, can’t find a table that gives home and away data?
  10. This for me is the one thing that’s been so frustrating about this season, and I reckon LJ left it to long before making changes to the formation, going from one up top to two. If that had been done earlier against the lesser sides, I believe we’d have picked up the points necessary.
  11. How dare you! Of course he’s in a dodgy cheap clinic in turkey.....whatever next
  12. Yeah mate, I hear that! Did think twice about it, but because I’m just over the road from an exchange box, thought I’d take the risk. As I say, connection is fine, probable the router then. Funny thing is though, every mates/relatives house I’ve been round (except for virgin) has the same problem with fibre. The speed drops drastically over a certain small distance, but hey ho what do I know!
  13. Is this to do with the quality of the router specifically or maybe a router problem? I’m now on TalkTalk which has a connection speed of around 38mb near the router. Apologies I know this ain’t football related!
  14. Works well for me using a VPN, as the service now accepts UK addresses when processing cc details. All I would say is you need a decent ping between the router and your device. If you have a connection that drops it's speed every now and then, you'll get the black screen or freeze. My experience of fibre is it offers great connection speed when in the same room, but moving to another or upstairs reduces the speed/ping dramatically. Dunno if it's down to quality of router or fibre technology, but for me it's definitely a downgrade on old broadband technology, just my opinion though, others will have differing views.
  15. We all knock the premier league and their plastics etc, but I can guarentee the fans don’t take shit like we do down here. Have a look at how many fans you see standing for the majority of those games. All comes down to passion, if enough people do it it’s just a big **** you to the suits and safety bellends. Rant over. Anyway, standing will be back in a couple of years which will completely change the dynamics of football yet again. Do the suits want it, almost definitely not. Fan power will prevail.
