Re: Richard Scudamore's £5 million farewell gift

I'd add, that yes, revenues have sky rocketed on his watch, but so have the costs of doing business.

Re: Richard Scudamore's £5 million farewell gift

League commissioners love to take credit for tv revenues increasing on their watch (Roger Goodell of the NFL and his $60 million per season wages say hello), and I get that it's probably one of the most notable KPIs for evaluating their job (they exist in the position to make money for everyone), bu...

Re: Fulham sack Jokanovic and appoint Ranieri

Anyone paid much attention to Fulham, how has Sessegnon been, lots of hype over him but don't think I've heard him mentioned this season. I haven't really seen anything of them, but he's playing predominantly at left back isn't he? He really exploded last season when he moved further up the pitch. ...

Re: Pre-Christmas Fixtures

Sorensen has scored again tonight, if he keeps this up we’ve surely got to see him at some point? Although FAC3R in Jan away to someone like Oxford in a much changed and disjointed team is probably most likely <laugh> Sounds about right. You sound ready for managing a lower-half PL side in a cup ti...

Wolves should have beat Arsenal yesterday and would have had it not been for Leno. They are lethal on the counter attack it will be a tough afternoon.
Well at least they can't counter attack against a team that hardly leaves its own half!

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v Bournemouth

I think what Shelvey to an extent gives you is maybe a bit more bite, and he's sitting back too so is there as a body (until he tanks at about 70 minutes and starts pointing...). I was more referring to when we have possession though, as we're massively limited to going down the wings for a cross, ...

Sorensen has been training with the senior squad which is good, would still be pretty surprised if he appeared on the bench tho.
I'd be shocked too. He'd then be perfect for a time wasting appearance with 5 minutes left trying to hold a 1 goal deficit.

I remember when we pressed hard, think it was against United last year. Worked well as i recall.
I really wish we would more. It's pretty hard to generate a decent counter attack without putting some meaningful pressure on the opposing team.

Re: Match thread - NUFC v Watford

For me, its the fact he doesn't know how to get on the ball enough. I'm not sure if it's a problem with his positioning, or being too passive, or what, but he just goes anonymous for way too much of matches for someone playing a position that should be the linchpin of our attacking play. I've refer...

Re: Match thread - NUFC v Watford

Perez should be played as a striker. He's our best finisher. That's setting a very low bar seen as we've really got no good finishers - I'd say finishing is often what lets him down tbh. For me, its the fact he doesn't know how to get on the ball enough. I'm not sure if it's a problem with his posi...

Re: Rafa Out?

Ultimately we've been shut out enough to suggest it isn't luck but exactly what we deserved. In football you often create your own luck (good and bad), sit back and defend for 90 minutes and you increase the chances that something breaks against you, and if you don't attack you're unlikely to have a...

Re: Lascelles signs new six-year contract

Imagine supporting a club where if one of your key players signed a new long term contract your first thought was "great, we're really aiming to push on and tie down our key players to build a team around" instead of supporting us and automatically thinking "this mean that Ashley will be able to se...

Re: Lascelles signs new six-year contract

Every player who has their contract re-upped is to increase their transfer value, that wouldn't be unique to us.

And why? Ashley doesn't care what fans say. He doesn't care what pundits say. He doesn't care what Rafa says. The idea that there are staff out there trying to appease the masses with rumours of signings flies in the face of everything else he gets criticized for. He doesn't care if fans complain, ...
