    What grinds my gears...

    People who shake their legs, especially when there are other people sat on the same row of springy seats (e.g. in a lecture theatre/bus). Really not a fan of the rhythmic vibrations generated by a stranger getting transmitted via the seat to my entire body, particularly the genital area. Feels a bit intrusive.
  2. No chance Maguire gets rested, Stones is suspended for yellow card accumulation

    Maddison named in England squad

    Chilwell was entirely understandable given all the other left backs were lost to injuries. Maddison was just about plausible given the 10 role he plays and his current form. Gray I really didn't understand at all.

    There is a God!

    They'd have missed anyway, Jesus had missed his last two.

    He's always alternating between long barren runs and long scoring runs in the last few years. He'll be fine.
  8. Pep probably wanted Riyad to take it to build his fragile confidence. Unfortunately for them the plan was always very likely to backfire, and so it has.
  9. Might get called up to the seniors after all due to injuries https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2018/10/07/luke-shaw-injury-could-lead-england-call-up-ben-chilwell/

    Nathaniel Clyne - Reported January target

    Johnson doesn't want to play RB. From the looks of it, neither does Ricardo.

    The OH Leuven Thread

    IMO the owners are completely serious about wanting him to stay regardless of what happens. A couple of our title winning players are very pro-Pearson. Kasper especially, who has been vocal about Pearson being the best manager he's ever had. Kasper is very close to the owners so no doubt his opinion will influence theirs. Is it difficult to get out of the amateur division?

    Harvey Barnes - West Brom (loan)

    Not quite a fair comparison as Barnes only had half a season whereas the rest had a full season for the U23s. But.. https://www.premierleague.com/news/662053 Harvey Barnes has been named the Premier League 2 Player of the Month for March. The attacking midfielder has been integral to Leicester City’s hopes of a Premier League 2 Division 1 and Premier League Cup double. He scored twice and provided an assist in a 4-0 win over Liverpool that meant the Foxes replaced the Reds at the top of PL2 Division 1, where they remain with two matches remaining. Judging on that half season I'd still say Hughes and maybe Knight were ahead of Barnes. Definitely not Thomas though.

    Only half-watching it but here's all the mentions of Soyuncu from the Merc's commentary. Doesn't sound great tbf 4 min Early foul from Soyuncu Soyuncu tries to bring the ball down on his chest, loses it and then fouls his man. Benalouane flicks away the free-kick and from the follow-up, Ballard’s looped header is saved by Jakupovic. 16 min Composed from Benalouane and Jakupovic The senior pros’ experience comes to the fore as Benalouane stops a swift coutner-attack with a clean tackle, then Jakupovic calmly deals with a bouncing back pass from Soyuncu, evading the onrushing striker and playing the ball back to the Turkish international. 28 min Soyuncu does enough... just Soyuncu gives the ball away but wins it back legally despite Arsenal protests. Dewsbury-Hall then dribbles into an Arsenal player and the Gunners are on the counter. Olayinka feeds John-Jules with just Soyuncu for company. The City defender goes down very early and puts off John-Jules who strikes wide. Poor play from the striker, who had time to get the better of Soyuncu after he went to ground. 50 min Up-and-under from Soyuncu Soyuncu’s attempt to clear a cross goes horrible wrong and it goes directly upwards. Luckily, it comes to nothing. Just before, Wright’s cutback nearly found King in the box. 70 min Soyuncu booked Soyuncu fouls Omole and the two square up, the City defender raising his hand to his opponent’s neck. For that, he goes in the book. 74 min Soyuncu subbed off Almost immediately after his yellow card, that’s the end of Soyuncu’s night. Beaglehole brings him off for Ramsay.
