Re: EURO 2020 Sweepstake, 2021 Edition

Happy with Portugal, though it did lead me to check whether Hugo Viana had retired, sadly he has.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

I've never heard of him but his goal record at fairly middling clubs is outstanding, why has no one picked him up already?

Re: New Kit 21/22

I've only ever bought one fake top, a Dortmund one about 7-8 years ago. It was great, until you washed it <laugh> I got a Nigeria shirt when Shola got called up as I couldn't find a real one anywhere. Looks fine from a distance, close up it's obvious that Ameobi uses at least two different fonts...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

Honestly still don't see this "was good in the Championship". For me he never did enough for the move to be made permanent, and he's been stealing a living for years. Fair play to him, as you say I don't think he ever didn't try, but he was never ever good enough.

Re: 2020/21 Season Review

As always though that has to be caveated with "whilst never getting a proper run in the side and playing in front of horrifically uncreative players". I do think his time has passed now, but if he'd got a sensible run of games 2 or 3 seasons ago he might have been a reasonable option. Rafa wrote hi...

Re: 2020/21 Season Review

I'll go farther and say Gayle was never really good enough for the top level, but especially not now. I don't disagree. 26 goals in 135 games in the Premier League isn't a good return at all. As always though that has to be caveated with "whilst never getting a proper run in the side and playing in...

Re: 33-man England Squad confirmed

Apparently to help assess injuries. Though presumably most countries will be in a similar position and I don't see anyone else doing it. Probably toss of a coin between Bamford and Watkins, with Grealish in there it makes sense to go Watkins as they link up very well at Villa. Bamford works incredi...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2021)

As much as I'd like us to sign Willock i dont want us getting bent over a barrel trying to sign him, as great as he was it was still only a half season, could be a risk going all out and having him as our main signing, if we can get him and there is a deal to be made, is he worth potentially blowin...

Re: 33-man England Squad confirmed

A lot of those players are very young too, Godfrey and Saka have both been brilliant this season. I love the arbitrary split between midfield and attack, with Mount and Foden in different sections. I'd be very tempted by a midfield 3 of Henderson, Mount and Foden, we really don't need the "two holdi...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (January 2021)

Middling opinion: I think Dubravka is better, but I don't think by much and I think his organisation is overstated. I don't think we suffered while he was injured.

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v Sheffield United

Wow what a difference the crowd makes at St James great atmosphere.. Anyone from here able to attend? I decided not to apply in the ballot (thought I'd play it safe for the sake of one game that was basically a pre season friendly), but the other three I travel with did go. I was a bit jealous when...

Re: Match day thread - NUFC v Sheffield United

Price just going up and up unfortunately. Arsenal should be looking at integrating him into their team if he can play this good with our players and manager. Hopeful of a loan to buy agreement. 20m seems like a pipe dream now haha Think they'll want £30m region which is ridiculous tbh. I think that...
