  1. The simplest and most obvious solution is to leave everybody else where they are and use Under in Maddison’s role. He’s played centrally and comes closest to anyone on the side to Maddison’s skillset, and it’s the least disruptive to the side. But I think opinion is pretty much calcified on Under so that seems very unlikely.

  2. Would certainly be interesting to see. If he had a good game there, in a time when he's called upon, it'd do his confidence a world of good too.

  3. Tielemans is the reason we can transition the ball from relatively deep through to final third quickly. Move him forward and we are relying on Wilf and Mendy/Hamza or do that job and they simply don’t do that. The result is slow sideways passages of play involving Evans, Cags, WIlf, Mendy which allows the opposition to get every man behind the ball as we laboriously pass our back line, back and forth. The result is that we have a slow transition that provides the opposition to press hard which none of the aforementioned players deal well with and leads to an eventual a

  4. It's just depressing now. I feel for Atalanta - we're in their boat really as a club and this could easily be us. It just takes away from the whole thing now. You won't see a more undeserved win all season yet everything in their power was done to help Real Madrid win it. See also Manchester United last season when they had a chance at a late surge into the Champions League and they happen to get the biggest string of decisions I can remember. There needs to be some real investigating into all of this. Bad decisions happen but this is all far too convenient. When you ha

  5. Nobody should be surprised by it anymore. People within the game actively admit they 'need' particular clubs in particular positions. Particularly in an era where the game is going to be a bit hit money wise.

  6. Preventing a goal scoring opportunity but its way out with Vinicius Jnr heading away from goal with a clumsy touch and defenders coming back. It just absolutely never was. He got the red card straight out, absolutely couldn't wait to give it, VAR didn't check it, it was dubious AF. To compound the issue, he's just refused to send Casemiro off for simulation. Casemiro is on a yellow card and he's dived in the box, the ref has made a big show of saying it was a dive, he's gone over and lectured him and given him a final warning. I don't get that, it's a clear cut second yellow card.

  8. Maybe I'm crazy, but I 100% believe we have a better team than spurs. I don't think it's shocking we're ahead of them.

  9. With Maddison being confirmed as out... Schmeichel Daley Campbell - Evans - Soyuncu - Thomas Tielemans - Ndidi Under - Amartey - Barnes Vardy Can’t wait to see Big Dan thread some through balls into Vards.

  10. I don’t think Spurs should necessarily be level or ahead of us. Other than because they’re ‘Spurs’ and they have a couple of big names. I think that’s what Jordan was getting at. You have to look past the name, look at the individual players, the management (at all levels) and there’s no reason to suggest Spurs should be ahead of us.

  15. I became an uncle for the first time last year to my niece. A few months later City announced they were acquiring the women's team and they were going professional. This made me proud to see us finally taking the women's game more seriously, but also hopeful because it would open up even more opportunities and avenues for my niece when she grew up. There's a new pathway for her to get involved in playing, coaching, officiating or literally anything behind the scenes, that didn't exist before. I'm pushing her into playing in the hope she can get me free tickets . There's plenty of m

  16. I've been put in hospital by a racial attack and had 7 stitches in my face and have a permanent scare on my face as a result, and that's not even the only time it has happened to me, so yes I would say it is a rather massive and very incorrect assumption you have made there and I would wager it is far worse an experience than most people have suffered from any racial back ground. Not only do white people suffer racism I can tell you from experience no one gives a shit when they do which should absloutly not be the case just because it occurs relatively less frequently. It's languag
