  1. Kasper Castagne / Soyuncu / Tarkowski / Fuchs N’didi Praet / Tielemans Perez / Vardy / Barnes
  2. For what it’s worth I have a friend who’s involved in sports marketing. A huge football fan whose hometown club is Atalanta. She reckons we have a gem in Castagne who is predominantly right but has been used recently on the left fairly comfortably. I mention this as I recall seeing some chat about where he plays / what are his strengths etc so it sounds like a good signing.
  3. During lockdown I have been playing a bit of golf with Liverpool fans. (I live on the Wirral) they loved Rodgers until they started to lose and then showed he absolutely no plan B. He got away with it at Celtic as everyone is total shit but as soon as teams work us out we are stuffed. Today he seemed to try and buck his trend but to no avail. He has showed his tactical naivety and whereas I don’t want him out I think that perhaps his plan A reaped such success that we are not prepared for the free fall we find ourselves in. Don’t get me wrong I am ****ing fuming and it fee
  4. I have always liked Lamela, wouldn’t have an issue with him coming here if he could sort his injuries out.
  5. Yes, his contract is up in the summer and will be a perfect acquisition for a campaign involving Europe in my opinion
  6. Obviously want loads but realistically my top 10 would be: Top 4 / champ league football Golden Boot Cup win Get Adam Lallana Get Jarrod Bowen Barnes / Gray / Iheanacho kick on Retain Chilly / Madders / Youri / N’didi Further promotion from the youth teams England recognition for Hamza Benkovic fulfils his potential
  7. Liverpool. Still bitter about losing 4-3... oh and Mark McGhee
  8. Some players just can’t win can they??
  9. Bought a vacuum cleaner for the same reason.... same outcome. Sucked worse than the team.
  10. That has just gone into number 3 of the most annoying puns or play on words on this forum.... sitting behind ‘Brenda’ in front of ‘Spuds’ but number 1 by miles is still ’Chelski‘
  11. I wasn’t aware of that. Pleased you mentioned it!
  12. Plus it mentions nothing about possible release clauses or other 'terms'...
  13. Exactly. In fact I was saying exactly the same thing to a mate the other day.
  14. I think he has been the right man to bring in at the right time to oversee a culture change and succession planning in many aspects of the national set up. Lots of businesses do things like this with growth managers but are not employed to run a company long term. Southgate has done a lot of good things but I feel he is now out of his depth tactically and in man management to take England forward to any decent level of success.
  15. Have just copied this and pasted it into a text for some friends as I loved it. You won’t get credited but just know that plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery
  16. It’s a bloody conspiracy. So obvious that the message from the FA is ‘Play for the ‘big’ clubs and you’ll get in the England starting 11’ it’s so utterly disgraceful that the Ox walks back in. Winks isn’t even a starter for Spurs. Surprise Maguire is now almost now the first name on the team sheet when at Leicester he was ‘in the mix’ the whole thing is the FA trying to control the cash cow by rewarding players to move to protect the showcase teams who earn the overseas marketing rights. Makes me sick. Southgate is a bloody stooge and a spineless company man.
  17. I thought Trevor Benjamin and Ade Akinbiyi were going to go in and form the most potent strike force we ever had at the club...
  18. I would argue that thankfully, this is now an obsolete phrase.
  19. Some of the comments in this thread beggars belief. Years of wanting Instant success has resulted in the total demise of England as a brand off the field and a and team on it. Southgate, albeit not the most astute coach understands the big picture and clearly his remit is to unpick the disasterous succession of failed regimes and create a cohesive pathway and style of play that can adapt for future players and teams. If he wins a trophy in the short term that is a bonus. The WC semi was a false dawn but showed that his man management skills are more important than his tactical on
  20. I think baby steps are largely all we can realistically manage to ensure that progress is sustainable and we don’t get amazing highs followed by awful lows. CBT was really good. I have 3 more sessions, 2 hours each one over the next 3 weeks and then I’ll go from there. Learning about the concept of flight or fight and applying it to anxiety was very revealing to me. I will share stuff once I get more of a handle on it. Keep going everyone. @HowardsBulletHeader Well done for chatting, your comments about anonymity on here mirror mine. That this is such a remarkable forum
  21. Thank you, that means a lot.
  22. Evening. Not posted for a while. I start my cognitive behavioural therapy tomorrow. I feel a bit weird about it but also that, with my Able Futures talks I am slowly surrounding myself with people and organisations that can help. My self esteem is still so low but I couldn’t help but post based on that Robin Williams comment which reasonates so much. I have wonderful kids, a loving wife and great friends that I am really trying to recognise and accept the positive impact I have on their lives but it is often too hard and my self worth plummets. Thankfully things are ge
