  1. And we were worried about replacing Mahrez...

    **New** Puel In or Out - A simple Poll Mk 2

    Nothing changed since last time you asked. Still in flux, it still takes time to change a team, and at the moment we're replacing Mahrez without replacing him. Shit to watch us, but we can cope with that for 3 more weeks...

    unrest in the squad

    But you can't have it both ways. You can't buy 11 new players in one go and expect success, and you can't buy 3 or 4 to change your system and not play them till you get the rest in. There has to be a transition and we're in it now. The fact that Ndidi, Maguire, Diabate are thriving, Vardy, Mahrez and Albrighton are still going (albeit in patches) and that Chilwell, Gray and Iborra look half decent is a good sign that, regardless of individual games, we are going the right way. It's not pretty and I'm no happier seeing us lose than anyone else, but we have that open goal to play with where we're not really in a competition, we're not under threat, and we can afford to focus on next year. I'll judge on different criteria in October, but I think I've seen enough good signs to cope with the by product of this last few months...

    The Last 8 Games Of Riyad Mahrez

    Really? You really think Lennon's solo stuff is better than the Beatles stuff? Seriously? There's not one Lennon solo song that would get on a Beatles compilation. Not even close.

    Chelsea (H) FA Cup Match Thread

    Would it be too much to ask Riyad to pass to one of our players for once?
  6. Go; for the right price. Preferably with three weeks of the window left and two little known wizards already signed up...

    Man City v THE City scoreline prediction thread

    3-1 them. Sadness abounds, but we go on an 8-match unbeaten run and end up right on Arsenal's heels...

    President Trump & the USA

    I think our police would allow large banners and obvious dissent in a way American police would not.

    President Trump & the USA

    Yeah. The division of ideology in the US seems so distinct that no one bothers to appraise the specific situation at any time. The red states are happy now and don't care who is in charge as long as he rides an elephant, the blue states are unhappy, and wouldn't be significantly happier even with a competent Republican president. Given the number of gun toting maniacs in America, it's a national embarrassment that there's not even been an attempt to assassinate him.

    President Trump & the USA

    While that might be true, you'd have to be a pretty special kind of idiot to think Trump was a good thing, and acceptable president, or anything but a criminal escaping conviction through the ability to hire astonishingly expensive lawyers.

    President Trump & the USA

    I'd like to see him here, provided there's a parade. I'd like to see how they reported the way the British public received him. I don't think America does dissent at all, so it would be amusing to see the response.

    Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    I don't think that's true. The quality of each Oasis album definitely followed a downward trend, but nothing on the first album would fit stylistically on the second, the third was a rehash on coke, but you can still follow a progression through the best songs on each album (Gas Panic, importance of being idle, I'm outta time, Falling down). They aren't songs that would have belonged on their predecessors. Blur may have changed after each album, but there's no obvious sense of improvement either. There is no way Great Escape is progress from Parklife, 13 is definitely less interesting than Blur, and anything after Think Tank has been a waste of time. Both great bands, giving slightly different things to their fans. Two brilliant albums each and a whole pile of great songs.

    Vardy's goal celebration, clearly trolling Riyad

    Agent and cronies are one thing, and no doubt the agent is a scumbag. Man City though have a lot to answer for-they knew we wouldn't sell for that much in that timescale. They dangled the carrot in front of him and tried to make him force the rest-it's not a pleasant way to conduct business, but it is very reminiscent of Pep when he was at Barca. Lots and lots of disruption to clubs' best players, and eventually scoop them up cheap. Rather than refuse to do business with West Ham over a personal slight, I'd like to see us refuse to deal without Man City over malicious last minute peanuts offers whose only purpose was to drive a stake into our first team.

    Will Mahrez go for 100 million.

    Did Man Utd go backwards after Ronaldo left? That was the example you chose as a team going from strength to strength after losing a key player? Yes, they got really shit, really quickly. They have never recovered.
