    Jamie states what we all know...

    Yep, I think we made huge progress in the summer on your last part. Offloading Toby, Rose, Sissoko, Aurier, Lamela, Hart, Gazza etc in one summer was no mean feat. We're not quite feeling the benefit yet, but we will do. Let's hope we can keep churning the squad into the next 2 windows. Whether...

    Merson claims Dele has his Mojo back..

    His tough time were mostly caused by injuries. So avoidable if Levy and Poch had given him and Eriksen some respite by bringing in more players in that key position. I'm guessing when you're on your 3rd or 4th soft tissue injury then it's quite easy to let your mental health suffer. You then...

    You suffering amnesia? You already wrote that once :LOL:

    Golli says Romero is 'perfect' 'an animal'!

    Yeah, it's also because long haul east is much harder than long haul west. Someone like Son has it tough on the way out to his matches, but has the timezones on his side coming home. With the South American, they finish the mid-week games late and can't travel until the next day after. By Friday...

    Merson claims Dele has his Mojo back..

    We don't have a shouty bloke at centre half or centre mid. We had that with Dawson and he was a terrible captain. Couldn't even run a back four. What we do have is a GK that constantly talks to his back four and makes the collective better than the individuals. There is no more reassuring voice...

    Golli says Romero is 'perfect' 'an animal'!

    I refuse to blame players for the FIFA international fiasco. They shouldn't have been put in that lose-lose situation. FIFA should have respected their own rules which state the windows that player can be taken and MUST BE returned to their clubs. As for Gollini, time will tell whether he is up...

    Merson claims Dele has his Mojo back..

    Well the good news is that Dele says he is happy playing number 8 and clearly loves the box to box stuff. As part of that, we must accept that his stats may never be as good as when he was in Poch's 4-2-3-1 playing as a false 9 or 10. What Dele now needs to happen is that the 6 players ahead...

    20210926 PL Match Thread - Arsenal FC vs Tottenham Hotspur

    The plot is definitely thickening and can't wait for Nuno to have a full compliment of players. Finding that blend of football brains, technical skill, industry etc is the hard piece for Nuno. This last week without players like Lucas, he has tried to get the best brains and technicians in the...

    Nuno Espírito Santo - Head Coach Thread

    Genuinely, I totally get what Jimmy was saying. I bet he was guilty of a few of the "water carrying" parts of the game and played in an era where that was the norm for strikers. Saying that, it's inconceivable to think that Southgate, Mason, Jose and now Nuno have all told Kane that he doesn't...

    Nuno Espírito Santo - Head Coach Thread

    Nothing has changed with Kane yet Nick. We're back to where we were last season where as soon as he scores a goal, people think he's back. He did work slightly harder last night but was still way short. He certainly didn't do his share of shutting down or get into anything physical with their...

    Harry Kane - Player Thread

    We all see different things. I didn't mind him as a flat track bully for the EL, but he was never going to challenge Kane in the PL. He just didn't have the all round game, but I would have backed him to get some goals. Ended up in the Eredivisie with PSV. It's a numbers game. Vlahovic and...

    Harry Kane - Player Thread

    I would have said that but English salaries rule. The PL is the place to be, hence why we had no credible offers from Europe's big clubs. Do you not think the 10th biggest club financially can't get a striker. Maybe not Dusan as he's now very visible, but we must be able to land one if we have...

    O/T The Good morning thread.

    My favourite story of the day is about Fifi the Llama. She has single handedly cured the global pandemic with her nanobodies. She offered her body to science rather than be the latest llama victim of pillows, rugs and ropes. Her risk has paid off.
