Re: The Managerial Merry-Go-Round Thread

Yeah, also seems his reputation comes from him building teams up, so think it could go either way for him. I do find it odd that for all the talk of how great he is, it seems like not many top to mid level clubs have been lining up to appoint him. Also seems like an odd pick for an interim manager ...

Re: New Kit 21/22

I've never really understood the big deal? Maybe it's because I don't have a 10 year old son urging me to buy him one, but I don't see the implied pressure to buy each new kit. The last one I bought was the burgundy/navy hooped away kit of a few seasons back, but as far as I'm concerned, the more we...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

Oh, we probably shouldn't actually take the risk of buying him. But as a fellow Kyle from Canada (ignoring his spelling), I want to be the first on record to say I supported the idea if it happened and he was a hit. And more a reflection on our historically terrible and mismanaged national program,...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

Can't say I've ever heard of him but would be a bit of a risk; only had one good season (last season) in Europe looking at his stats, in a league that isn't particularly strong. Oh, we probably shouldn't actually take the risk of buying him. But as a fellow Kyle from Canada (ignoring his spelling),...

It's really impressive Andy Serkis has the time to be in so many films and also manage Man U. Might explain their apparent lack of preparation.

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

Rumours out there that Cyle Larin has been offered to us from Besiktas. I've selfishly been talking up Jonathan David from Lille as the Canadian striker we need, but Larin shares a lot of similar qualities (better hold-up play, similar finisher, but not nearly the dribbler of JD), is a few years old...

Re: Seasons prospects

It is only a 5 point gap still, tho possibly 8 after we lose to Arsenal next weekend depending on other results. I’ll wait until after the Norwich and Burnley games. If we can get 6 points there I think that’ll see us through to January and we’ll stay up. If we don’t win those 2 games I think it’s ...

Re: The Managerial Merry-Go-Round Thread

Agree on the Greenwood/Rashford point, they were a slick attacking unit last season and both of those featured heavily. Getting Ronaldo in has just completely disjointed everything. For Ole, I'd say he did turn them back into a team up until this season, but this season for the most part they have ...

Re: Lee Charnley Leaves the Club

None of us can know what the goings on were within the club during this time so judging how much of the disappointing Ashley era can be laid at his door is a pretty futile exercise. Personally I doubt his authority extended to setting budgets or deciding what it was spent on, which let's face it we...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

Wouldn't surprise me if that were the case, as it is with lots of footballers who find fame and fortune at a very young age. But he applied himself straightaway at West Ham and just wanted to play football and show what he could do, would definitely take him. Or just most people of a young age <lau...

Re: TF International Football Thread

It's a reason why we don't play at winter in Norway. At my place we have -30 -35c usually in january. If we are unlucky this might happen in december and part of february as well. 11 years ago, 2010 new years eve, we had -46c. Everyone were running their cars all night like in Russia <laugh> Yeah, ...

Re: January Transfer Rumours/Wishlist 21/22

I’d be surprised if Dubravka doesn’t start at the weekend, been on our bench the last 2 league games so must be fit. Howe will presumably go with what he sees as our strongest first XI so you’d think Dubravka (and Schar) would be in that. I do fear Schar being away on international duty might be a ...

Proud to say Canada moved to top of CONCACAF qualifying after beating Costa Rica and Mexico this week. After decades of dealing with farcical pitches, opposing fans lighting fireworks overnight outside of hotels and throwing bags of piss, and generally getting CONCACAF'd (it's a verb), we returned t...

Re: Gary Hoffman to Resign as PL Chairman

Just a fall guy, the whole thing is rotten. Its only ever been about competition, if they were so concerned about the human rights stuff then why do they not complain about Qatari TV money that is pumped into their coffers every season. I don't see the direct similarities between a Qatari company b...

This policy is never going to come into place anyway. It's a load of rubbish based on lazy journalism.

Re: New Manager: Eddie Howe Confirmed

Plus, at this phase of the takeover, getting the right Director of Football will likely have the greatest long term impact.
