  1. Our scouting system must be the envy of the Premier league. We don't splash out millions on a whim. Every player we buy has a sell on value, just in case. Slimani is probably the only duffer we currently have. We are a very well run club, from the top down.
  2. I’m more worried about their bowling attack ! They seem to rely on this pair, although apart from Smith’s recent blip they seem to step up regularly unfortunately
  3. I reckon it’s also a consequence of 3 of the so called top 6 having inexperienced managers, Lampard, Arteta & Solskjaer. Man Utd have picked up, Arsenal have to a small degree but overall they flatter. Lampard is seemingly on a tightrope & could get sacked at anytime.
  4. As previously said, if Frank is sacked, BR will be linked. C'mon Chelsea I say !
  5. Not worth watching the build up or post match. Just switch on at KO time, then off straight after. Will always be same for any side unless it's Chelsea, Man Utd, Man City, 'Pool or Spurs involved
  6. Campbell on points. A British judge is overseeing this, so it could happen !
  7. He has definitely gone backwards. There was a time just after BR joined us, he actually looked like he'd turned a corner and improved an awful lot.
  8. Robbie Savage praises our recruitment constantly. He reckons it’s the best in the Prem. He actually has praised us a fair bit recently, Rogers gets lots of plaudits too from Sav.
  9. Seems to be no home advantage for many teams, more like neutral venues right now. Games are so hard to predict, hence the odd score lines. Take a draw against these but anything is possible. At least we have the cavalry returning gradually, so hopefully we can stop being so inconsistent.
  10. There's a proposal for a new weight too ! Bridgerweight. For the 'lighter' Heavyweights to squeeze into. I'm sure Pablo has more info on this
  11. Tbf, most of us fail to see the point of playing Barnes & Under for 90 mins against AEK’s 2nd eleven, in the most one sided game we will ever see. I get the issue that Under needs game time regarding fitness etc, Barnes definitely doesn’t.
  12. I just hope Fury/Joshua takes place in front of a sell out crowd. Would be a crying shame if such a spectacle wasn’t played out in front of a huge live audience in the UK and not in Saudi Arabia or Vegas. l like Joshua’s more measured approach, seems to have a plan B when unable to starch his opponents. Fury will just be Fury & have a game plan as always. Hopefully this takes place late summer 2021 after they have a tune-up each. Then, no doubt they will have a rematch. As it is, l pick Fury by late stoppage or points. However, l wouldn’t put money on it as AJ is a v
  13. Good all over the park, although we won’t have an easier game all season. AEK were league 1 standard at best. Still, very professional performance & a clean sheet. Under looking like he could be something special & Barnes growing in confidence. No new injuries, and another hour for Wilf.
  14. I think Kell Brook suffered a fracture v Golovkin, he carried on until stopped, can't remember the exact details. Nobody knows how much pain Dubois was in or how much further damage he could have sustained. He is young & will return, so was wise to get out.
