    That's the only one I remember - were there others? I do think there's a bit of a myth about him being a 'hatchet man' based on one or two occurrences. How many cards did he get? Certainly compared to Wasilewski he was pretty tame, and it's funny how Was seems to be universally (within the LCFC universe) loved for it. I'm not going to argue about his eccentricity...

    'Disastrous' would have involved losing more players (there are two sides to a window), dropping out of the division etc. A lost opportunity is not in itself a 'disaster'. In hindsight the wrong players were targeted. Not sure how that's Rudkin's fault. The only fault on Rudkin's part would be if he failed to land other, more preferred players, leaving us with these lesser options. Do you know that's the case?

    The assumption here is for five months, assessed outside the lens of post-WC and transfer window daftness, he'll play like a £70+ million player. Given he didn't play like one last year, I'm not sure that will be the case.

    State of this thread. How many more stroppy baby-men are going to pile in?

    Even if there's quite a bit more going on than just passing, it's not as if a chunk of our current squad could do with some lessons in that department. Highly paid as they are. F*** me if the the reverse camera angle at exactly 8:03 isn't the spit of our recently departed sweet princess...

    Some Ndidi/Octupus like tackling and he's sharp, especially first 10 yards. Looks like a proper PITA to play against. There's a lot of him 'getting him front of his man and winning it' bits it in there. Which is great, as long as there aren't a lot of 'getting in front his man and being turned' bits we're not seeing. Likewise, a notable lack of shots of him passing/taking it out of defence.

    What the bloody hell is that at 1:11?

    Jamie Vardy

    Not sure you appreciate just how different their ratios are... 10 goals less, but with 110 more shots to get them. I doubt he'd maintain his 28% ratio, but why would he not be able to manage just 9% with those extra attempts? People saying 'England don't play in a way that utilises his strengths' regarding playing Vardy. For large parts of the WC I don't know what you'd call the way we were playing. 'Lone striker' or 'one up front' hardly describes Kane holding it up with his back to goal, 40-odd yards out. How many times did he set foot in the opposition area in the last couple of games? I'm not saying it wasn't necessary, or he didn't do it well (or that Vardy could do it!), but we were effectively playing without a striker. How did that utilise Kane's strengths?

    Remember watching him talk about 'looking after' his friend's little brother when Gascoigne was 10. While he was 'mucking about' the kid got hit by an ice cream van, died on the spot. It wasn't the accident itself but the way he described it, almost as thought there was something slightly humorous about it, that made him come across as unhinged/borderline sociopath.
