  1. Wages shouldn't really be a consideration, we aren't paying 300k a week. The club wouldn't pay stupid money. As for form, if we are having to operate in the loan market, we aren't going to be getting anyone in form. They will be squad filler or out of form players, that we think are quality and can turn it on. Remember Tielemans, slated at Monaco. Walks in the door here and was a revelation. We need someone in to cover asap. I'll have a top quality player who doesn't chase as much, over someone who runs around a lot and not much else. January is difficult to deal in, e
  2. People actually turning their noses up at Christan Eriksen.
  3. A Spurs outcast? He wanted to leave them, not them wanting rid of him.
  4. We can think like that in the the summer.
  5. Does it say a the bottom "Unless we get a massive cut of the profits".
  6. Because it's Villa, if that was against Liverpool god help us.
  7. If only that was mentioned in the laws so clearly and not three pages of ifs, buts and maybes to caveat off dozens of scenarios. It's written like that and gets changed, because people see things like this, it raises questions and then they add a caveat. This year they added: "Law 11 – Offside Deliberate handball by a defending player is considered ‘deliberate play’ for offside". They'll have added that because at some point, a defender handled the ball, it went to a player and he's been flagged for offside. So yeah, you can read the caveats and by the laws call him o
  8. I don't know, I've read and re-read the rules and I'm not sure it even covers this scenario. This is the rule: "A player in an offside position receiving the ball from an opponent who deliberately plays the ball, including by deliberate handball, is not considered to have gained an advantage, unless it was a deliberate save by any opponent." As I said earlier. He didn't receive the ball, he went and took the ball. To anyone talking about a player blocking a cross and getting a toe on it, that's classed as a "deliberate save".
  9. Nothing in the rules states a thing about "new phase".
  10. The problem I have is the following: This is the rule: "A player in an offside position receiving the ball from an opponent who deliberately plays the ball, including by deliberate handball, is not considered to have gained an advantage, unless it was a deliberate save by any opponent." He didn't receive the ball, he went and took the ball. It didn't flick off Ming's head, go behind him and end up at the players foot. So that needs clarifying.
  11. I think most had an understanding of the rule, but now and again an incident happens that that highlights a problem with it. I don’t know how anyone could watch that and not have a problem with it.
  12. Could understand that if it were a few seconds. He barely got the chance to even get it under control.
  13. Player was in offside position when ball was played. Ball went to Mings and the player tackled him and won the ball.
  14. I’d be raging if that’s against us. How can you not be interfering.
  15. So you suggest next time he just lets the player head straight at goal a metre out? The ball was dropping straight to his head a metre or so out (because he was offside) and the only way Evans stood a chance was to challenge from behind (because he was offside). Ridiculous, he's next to a whacking great big white line that indicates his position. Has he suddenly got a white cane? He came in from the side, not behind, so would have known his position because of that quite clearly.
  16. It wasn't mm's at all, it was about a foot outside the area, the clown of a ref should have been able to see it with his own eyes. Have you not considered that if Long had actually been onside, then he could have just made a clear tackle. As it was, Long stole an advantage whether he meant to or not and was penalised for it.
  17. How can you be lucky when they weren't penalties. It's not like we got away with anything.
  18. He also pissed around with the team every time we played a “big club”, even if they were in rubbish form. Gave them too much respect and didn’t seem to trust us, not now.
  19. Lampard hasn’t got a clue, been promoted way above his station far too soon.
  20. We bought Ricardo, Castagne and Justin for about the cost of one Chilwell
  21. Weird, doesn’t feel like he’s been here that long at all.
  22. He’s really hit that sweet spot between possession football and pacy counters that Puel never could and he struggled with at times last season. Oddly I think all the injuries did us a favour, he had a rethink on how to use the team and it seems to be paying dividends.
