Re: EURO 2020, 2021 Edition

Again though I think taking too much from group game performances doesn't help, the important thing is just to qualify. Don't forget that my lads didn't even win a group game when they won the tournament last time.

Re: EURO 2020, 2021 Edition

Agree massively with that, some huge overreactions. We've probably qualified already, so you can understand why he didn't roll the dice to try to win it, and it played just like a derby.

Re: EURO 2020, 2021 Edition

Just had a meeting with a colleague in Denmark and were talking about what happened with Eriksen. On Danish TV as soon as it was clear what was unfolding they cut away to a long range helicopter shot of the stadium so you couldn't see what was going on. Yet some people still believe the BBC bollock...

Re: EURO 2020, 2021 Edition

Is there a list anywhere of how many players from each PL club are represented at EURO 2020? We've got 4, which is apparently our best representation for some time but seems very low! I wonder how comparable clubs / competitors based on where we are in the table e.g. Brighton, Palace compare? https...

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...
