  1. Think he was gone by the Ides of March, if my memory serves me right.
  2. I would rather take a chance on Gerard or Lampard rather than Rogers.
  3. Sadly I remember that moment all too well! At the time I was about eleven and on the front rail at the Filbo end right behind the goal. Still an agonizing memory😳
  4. We need Barnes and Simpson, push Ricardo forward and to attack them down the wings. Plenty of time to salvage this.
  5. Think Danny would be worth another year, solid defender and clearly he loves the club. We may find him useful late in games from now to the end of the season ( and next year) to help close out games when we have a lead. Next season I think we are going to be very good and possibly in the Europa league as well and Danny would get some game time for sure. It’s all going to come down to him taking a pay cut and Claude’s opinion in the end. This probably will go down to the end of the season unless Fulham really make a move for him.
  6. Wolf has not gotten worse since last year, what has changed is the inclusion of Mendy next to him. We now win the ball a lot because these two work excellently together defensively. The problem is we are getting a lot of opportunities for quick transition and now a lot of the time Will is getting the chance to make that transition pass and this is where he is woeful. He just cannot weigh a pass or shot at all. If anything we should try playing Madison a little deeper so he can collect a short pass from Wilfred or Mendy as he has the ability to pick a pass. When you look at us defensively in games over the last eight games we are pretty good at dictating the play in I our half . It’s when we try to break forward when we shoot ourselves in the foot. Spuds did a good job breaking ON US by waiting for our inevitable wayward pass in the middle of the park. Problem is if we move Madison a bit deeper we expose our lack of forward options. I don’t think Puel is stupid, we just have an unbalanced squad. The only weird thing is that with Evans Maguire and Wes and Soyunco we have the personnel to try 3 at the back and give ourselves more opportunities to get another player forward against weaker sides but Puel seems not willing to do this. I think we squandered a few points not doing this in our recent run of draws. All in all 9th is not bad in a transition year, it could be a lot worse.
  7. His key problem is that he has absolutely no turn of pace at all. Classic example was when Chilwell broke free on the left at one point and Nacho made no attempt to move towards the near post to get in front of the defender in order to show for Chilwell. Instead he just stays ambling along into the middle of the box and made it simple for the defender to intercept the cross. In that situation you have three choices as a striker, attack the near post , pull off for a pullback pass towards the edge of the box or look for space at the back post. He did neither of these, the guy make Jeffrey look like a genius!! And if you didn’t notice our Jeff, now playing for Palace scored a very nice headed today by attacking the ball from a free kick.
  8. Fantastic post and great thread!! The way I am going about letting Vichai affect my life is to have a silent voice asking myself “how would Vichai act” when facing difficult or challenging situations come up in my everyday life. I already see how it is changing things for me and others around me.
  9. Kasper, Vichai would be so proud of you.
  10. My wife and I are planning on flying in from Maui for the Burnley game to pay our respects to Vichai. If anyone has two tickets and is unable to attend we would be hugely grateful to be able to buy then from you.
  11. My wife and I are planning to fly in from Maui for the Burnley game so we can pay our respects to Vichai. Question , are we eligible to get tickets via the returned Burnley allocation? If not, if anyone has two tickets and they cannot attend we would be hugely grateful to be able to purchase them from you.
  12. Annie and I have been on here constantly since Saturday night. Could not imagine what it would have been like without this forum as a support mechanism. We are half way around the world and yet this site has made us feel right there with you all in our shared grief at the loss of such a special human being. So many tears.
  13. Kasper your a class act. Tried reading your message to my wife over the phone today as we were on opposite sides of the Island. Was a mess within the first paragraph, totally choked up. Thank you for your heartfelt words.
