  1. Harry Maguire syndrome?
  2. It was a big mistake by Wilf but I would cut him some slack. We would have ended up conceding anyway with that onslaught. Let's move on. Great goal though. We were reliant on Maguire for that type of thing the whole of last season and it never really worked.
  3. Ditto. We got the best out of him for that one glorious season though. Can only wish him the best. Just hope to god he gets out of the sinking ship that is Chelsea. He deserves better than that.
  4. Good call!! Tipperary win 3-25 to 0-20. The most one sided final of the entire decade. A controversial sending off to a Kilkenny player in the first half was crucial. There was a point in it at the time but in truth Tipp had started to get the upper hand by then. Workrate and physicality was key along with brilliant link up play and they are very worthy winners. Were ahead 1-9 to 0-11 at the break but 2 early goals in the 2nd half sealed it for them. Some of the hurling in the second half was just sublime. They are a class apart in full flow. Kilkenny over achieved getting this far. Minors took a similar beating to Galway in the minor final too. A very drab affair. Was a bit like the championship overall. Didn't hit the heights of last year. Over to the Football final in 2 weeks time. 5 in a Row chasing Dublin playing outsiders Kerry....
  5. Not made an immediate impact as we hoped but I wouldn't be overly concerned just yet. Evans and Ricardo were a bit underwhelming early on last season but came good. I can understand with our recent record in Musa and Ghezzal about these signings not going to plan but I'm confident Perez will be up to the task
  6. And you could swap Harry Maguire for Caglar Soynucu rather easily. Just like in the starting XI.
  7. At least 1 in 3 of the away games to newly promoted sides doesn't tend to go well for us. Sheffield Utd will be well up for this I imagine. They seemed to have a bit of a beef with us over the 2 cup games in 2017-18. They did extremely well to get promoted from a competitive league last season with fairly limited resources. Gonna be similar to a Burnley type game so we need a good start. Too often we go to these grounds and get sucker punched early on.
  8. He wasn't flash (Harry!) out there today but he did his job. It was disappointing that Maguire left but Cags looks more than comfortable out there. Considering its European standard oppostion he has faced the last 2 games plus Atlanta he (and us) can be fairly happy with how he has played. If it was Harry playing like that you would be delighted. For someone a quarter of the price to slot in is most pleasing.
  9. 4 times in the last 5 seasons we have not lost at Stamford Bridge. Level on points since Kante moved too! Best away record against one of the Top 6 sides.
  10. Missed the first half. We were majestic in the second half. Missed a few great chances which is disappointing but given Chelsea's dominance in the first you gotta say that's a good result. Maddison outstanding. Fuchs rolling back the years. We will go again!
  11. All Ireland Hurling final been the focus today so only watching since the start of the second half. Been outstanding. Seemed like armaggeddon at half time here!
  12. In 2 minds about the result. On the one hand Wolves were one of the form teams of 2018/19 and learned from conceding 5 goals to us last season. Given that we are both fancied to be vying for 7th or higher then maybe a draw was not a bad thing. It would have been nice to start off with a win mind. It was one of many things we got right under MON. Often we would have 4 points out of 6 from the first 2 games or at least 1 win. To possibly hit the higher end of the table today feels like a bit of a setback. And a possible Chelsea backlash next week. Can't help but feel it's more 2 points lost today.
  13. Thought this was live on Sky Sports but was disappointed when I realised it was Newcastle V Arsenal For the best as it turned out!
  14. The honeymoon is over for Rodgers.
