Re: Shelvey: "It's time to grow up"

As others have said, he should be commended for his improvement the past year. The team would be completely lost without him given how little depth and creativity we have in midfield. But I've thought he's really sorted out his consistency.

Re: WEEKEND FOOTBALL - 17/20 AUGUST 2018

I have probably been harsh even mentioning Muto, but I'd always question any striker who isn't taking the penalties, Joselu needs goals and he's not going to get a better chance than from the spot. After his awful effort v Burnley/Swansea last season (can't remember which it was) I'd prefer he stoo...

Re: Match day thread - Cardiff v NUFC

Seems as though Shelvey and Diame were interchangeably playing the same CM roles, but I really don't think Diame is as comfortable on the ball or as good at passing, and it's showing up with the number of times he's taken too long on the ball or turned over a pass.

And I was late to that. Good team goal there, and Fulham have looked a lot better in the second half.

Even if you don't see it as racist (spoiler: it is) it's safe to say he's probably a f***ing terrible coach tactically if he's just lumping all his black players into a group.
This. Don't make stupid, lazy generalities based on race - especially to your employees.

Re: Match day thread - Cardiff v NUFC

I'll just say it again. Aside from our RBs, Kenedy was horrendous today. But he's had far more good matches than bad for us since January, and the rest of the team hardly covered themselves in glory today too.

Re: Match day thread - Cardiff v NUFC

Back to the Hayden decision. My biggest criticism of him has always been his lack of discipline. Not in the sense that he always makes dangerous tackles or lashes out, but that he's constantly going to ground to make tackles in places he doesn't need to. I've been meaning to look up his stats of the...

Re: Match day thread - Cardiff v NUFC

Kenedy has had too many good performances for me to make bigger criticisms than that he was f***ing terrible today.

As for why he took it, I don't even know who our taker would be because we've had so few the past couple years.

Re: Match day thread - Cardiff v NUFC

I'm by no means putting this on Rafa. But this does show why you can't just run the same lineup out waiting until there's a particularly dreadful performance before making a change - it's such complacency. I hate the idea of knowingly leaving better players on the bench and rewarding players who sti...

Re: Latest International Standings - Aug 2018

That's what can happen when it's all just an algorithm. It's not too dissimilar from the types of ranking systems used in golf and tennis. The difference is those players play often enough that the rankings tend to sort themselves out based on performance, while international football is so infreque...

Re: Federico Fernandez 6m Done Deal

Being a captain is more than just what you do on the pitch, off the pitch I can only recall seeing him do one post match TV interview. He's supposed to represent the team and the club in victory and defeat, part of a captains role is to do those kind of things. Whether we got hammered (as we did, e...

Seeing the same issue with a lot of the north american leagues too. If I recall correctly, NFL teams break even before a single ticket is sold. The most profitable baseball teams have insane local tv contracts funding them. It will be interesting going forward as/if tv ratings continue to decrease i...

Re: Match day - NUFC v Spurs

I wasn't implying Sterry should be written off and sold. But that he should probably prove himself somewhere, whether it be on loan somewhere, or in training, before we presume that he must be better than a player that has PL experience. I get that Manquillo isn't great, but there's a huge jump for ...
