  1. Well I guess Just to say that the comments on here about violence at rugby may be right highlighting individual incidents, but aren’t right overall. Football has more of a problem and we are kidding ourselves if we don’t recognize that.
  2. I get that this is a football forum, and that we are necessarily competitive with rugby fans. We think they’re posh passionless toffs, they think we’re common Neanderthals. I get it. but let’s focus on the facts. As a whole, There’s a lot less trouble at rugby than at football. Look at the intro to one of the articles linked above: “Has it really come to this – a punch-up between fans at a rugby match? Not in all my years covering the game have I heard of such an incident.“ (Sorry off formatting, am on my phone.) there just isn’t the level of anger at rugby there is at foot
  3. I think this is probably right. Go back to the YouTube highlights when we signed him... all the goals were off the shoulder/ poacher style finishes. It's only since he's been here that he's been played as a hold up/ target man. Maybe you're right and we're just playing to his strengths more.
  4. I think the issue with changing which body part is counted, or having a wider “line”, won’t solve the issue. You’ll just have moved the issue back a few inches. you’ll have the same tech but now measuring someone’s foot rather than their armpit you’ve still got the measuring issue in there. anywhere where there is a boundary there will be a dispute re whether something is one side or the other.
  5. It’s all about the off the ball run from Fam isn’t it. Brownhill does well to spot the space and Hunt to make the pass
  6. Yes but by that logic, SL picks LJ so it’s his fault. Of course that’s where the buck ultimately stops, but at a more relevant level to today’s performance I think it’s fair to call out some of the players.
  7. So how do we fit them all in? Whilst also addressing our leaky defence. I see HNM and JB as more box-to-box than Ngy, who excels when he's sitting in front of defence breaking stuff up and spreading play. So how about the following? DB AW TM TK PP Nagy JD Brownhill Massengo AW FD I think that would give us tremendous fluidity up front, whilst still having width with the wingbacks. Plu
  8. This is amazing. Just checked in to see what this thread was about, to discover that it's a debate about the status of CO'D's MOT. Peak OTIB. I love it!
  9. I think your two paragraphs are contradictory, aren't they? Hard to fit NE in if using wing backs; not as good when he starts. Rather than "for whatever reasons", wouldn't that be why LJ won't give him a run of games?
  10. You know it's LJ who assembled this squad, right?
  11. Isn’t the point though that we *haven’t* gambled? Strikers of the type you are wanting are £20m + at the moment. Splashing that kind of money out would be the gamble.
  12. Not sure I'm familiar with all of those players, but I'm sure we'd be drooling if we had them fit and playing
  13. Owen doesn’t state that it was wages. The offer he refers to (which Liverpool couldn’t match) could have been the transfer fee - ie, Real decided to sell him to Newcastle and he agreed.
  14. Yep that's probably right isn't it. Who else have we had a free transfer in that period?
  15. Yep that’s right. I actually had the same thought as johnnymusicworks at the same kind of time. My idea was a little different though - what if Chelsea wanted to buy him but can’t because they can’t loan all their players out any more, under the new rules. If someone like Chelsea wants to continue to stockpile young talent, the changes to loan rules mean they need to find a new strategy. One such strategy might be encouraging their “feeder” teams to buy the player, with an option to buy him later if he does well. Again, all perfectly legal. Thats a slightly different theory to
