Re: Basketball

New season up and running. Terrible start for Gordon Hayward with one of the most horrific injuries in sports history. Not nice to watch if you haven't seen it but most clips have warnings at the start incase you innocently click onto one. I'll not talk about opening results as they mean little in c...

Re: Other Clubs' Transfer Rumours/Deals (Summer 17/18)

Professionals will say you should be able to defend them. Similar to putting the ball out for a corner then conceding from it. My observations are Colback will stick rigidly to a defensive task. Ive seen him come out on top defensively against some top players in wins both home and away. You've see...

Re: Other Clubs' Transfer Rumours/Deals (Summer 17/18)

He did it for us many many times. Had a very good run at Left back too. Even played RB a few times, once at your place as a sub and believe it or not destroyed Leighton Baines the very next game in our win against everton. Won MOTM too!!! Colback isn't really a player who wins you many games, but h...

Re: Other Clubs' Transfer Rumours/Deals (Summer 17/18)

What's happening with Colback then? I haven't seen how many you've got rid of so will he get a squad number??? I personally think he's better at left back where expectations for goal scoring aren't as high. Strangely though, i think he's better as a Premier League "spoiler" rather than a ...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2017)

Just doesn't seem the same as a few years ago when "proper" signings were happening and going right to the wire. Ones like Berbatov to man utd where you could see him through the windows. Our best one was Keano's which was f***ing mental to be fair. Last couple of years SKY have tried to ...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2017)

Deadline Day isn't what it used to be, not in the North East anyway. Hardly worth getting my yellow onesie dry cleaned for the big night!!! You know when you watch a rubbish film and think "I'll never get that 90 minutes of my life back again"? I've been doing this whole shebang since 7am...

Re: Basketball

3-1 now. Can't see GSW having three bad shooting games if they're given good looks from outside. Cavs need to get right into their faces and give them some kind of pressure so GSW at least have something to think about. Cavs need to change the odds, not wait for GSW to let them work themselves out....

Re: Basketball

Not old enough to have seen him play at the time but seen plenty of video of him play. I feel he is always badly overlooked when people talk about greatest ever, he deserves to be in that conversation more than he is. I think Hakeem has said he sees some of himself in Embiid and has offered to trai...

Re: Basketball

You're absolutely right as there's less of them around to start with because many are stretch 4's at best nowadays. The game has changed a lot due to the current outside dominance but if another Shaq came along i can guarantee he'd force another change. I think any of the top old school centres wou...

Re: Basketball

Don't know how many dominating centres are really available at the moment though. Nerlens Noel is a free agent this summer and is a very good defender but is not great offensively. He will be asking for the max as well so not sure the Cavs could pay him. PG13 is out of contract next summer. Not a c...

Re: Basketball

Would Westbrook be the final piece in their puzzle? Great player that he is i don't think he's the solution for Cleveland. Cavs already have players who like to touch or bring the ball up and there's only one ball. In my opinion Cleveland need a player who can dominate a position away from the ball...

Re: Basketball

Some great basketball being played. These fellas are on another level. The percentages they execute at under pressure is truly phenomenal. You wouldn't try some of those shots messing around by yourself at the side of a house. They're out there in the NBA Finals, 10ft from the "long" three...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSXRyMs5xwM Almost time <divax> GSW 1 Cavs 0. Dunking practice for Durant!!! Can't remember the lanes being so wide open in a park game, never mind the NBA Finals. Cavs were fanning out to protect the 3's before defending the ball. Like it or not, IT's ALWAYS BALL FI...

Re: Basketball

Golden State Warriors v The Cleveland Cavaliers.
Some interesting match ups. GSW have the firepower but there's only one ball.
Let Battle Commence!!!
