Re: January 2019 Signing #2 Miguel Almiron (Club record £21m!)

Though Almiron looked promising when he came on last night. Knew he was fast but didn't realise he was that fast! Always looking for the run forward which I think our other players are going to have to get used to, defensively he was great, really mucked in and even threw his head at the ball whilst...

Re: Match thread - Wolves v Toon

Not putting that on Dubravka, hes in a headlock ffs, should have had a free kick down near the flag and whistle was long over due. any team in the top 6 and none of those things would have gone against them.

Also worth noting how many English players struggle with just the thought of going north of the M62 <laugh>

Re: Match thread - Spurs v Toon

I thought Perez had a decent game against spurs, saw glimpses of his quality on a few occasions, makes me think Almiron coming in is going to elevate his game, hes definitely the type of player who needs competition for his place to get the best out of him, imo.

Re: Emiliano Sala

Glad they've found the wreckage. At least it'll give the familys of Sala the pilot a bit of closure. So sad what's happened. Not sure you’d ever get closure without finding the bodies (highly unlikely now). The guy who found it was on SSN earlier he didn't confirm anything but it gave the impressio...

This is a decent vid. Has a good eye for a pass and looks very direct.

Overall from what ive seen of him hes similar to Ben Arfa but with a better workrate. Really think he will be as good as if not better than him.

Re: January 2019 Signing #2 Miguel Almiron (Club record £21m!)

His agent has had a bit of a dig at Atlanta United, apparently they said they wanted the £30m for him but every interested club said it was far too much but Atlanta were unwilling to budge on it, said the fee agreed with us was the one he had suggested to Atlanta a month ago and they refused it. App...

Re: Match thread - Spurs v Toon

I know defensive isn't everyone's cup of tea but at least we do it really well, the likes of Man City, Liverpool and Spurs find it really difficult to break us down and they have world class attacking options, a lot of teams can park the bus and still come away with a 3 or 4 nil loss, with us the bi...

Re: Match thread - Spurs v Toon

Bah. Thought we'd get stuffed. Road our luck. Didn't play badly. Played well in spells. A point would have been great but we can at least keep our heads held up high. 3 points from these two fixtures is fantastic considering we all though they'd be dead rubbers. Just need to push on against the tea...

Re: Match thread - Spurs v Toon

Shame for Dubravka, really good defensive effort today just that one lapse in concentration and individual error that costs the whole team, tough being a goalie. Think Almiron coming in for Atsu will really help us on days like today, will close the distance between defense and attack and give the o...

Wouldn’t mind seeing the new LB coming on in place of Atsu then moving Ritchie upfield a bit.
I only expect to see him if we go behind tbh, he will be far from ready in terms of keeping the defensive shape and discipline required in this game, cant afford any mistakes.

Re: Match thread - Spurs v Toon

Tactically we have been the same for most of the season, i personally don't see the point in complaining about it every single week, its how we play, its been like since we have been back in the PL and it wont be changing any time soon, we are a defensive counter attacking team.
