  1. Yeah, Etienne felt burnt on the Fofana deal after 3 weeks and it was a record for them. I think Tielmans would be the same for us for anything less than 90 million, especially since we now need to build our club coefficient.
  2. Now I know why the NFL had a "one team solid color, one team white color" rule for television.
  3. I like Mendy, but those squad midfielder roles are where we are going to see a bit of churn - Praet, Mendy, Hamza, D-H back off loan, Tavares (if he re-signs), Leshabela - even if we get CL football, the club will be making choices.
  4. A day after a huge FA Cup win, my two boys receive personalized scarves from the club! Love my club! (Okay, I realize I paid a lot of money for a membership that has been useless this year, but I am hoping that will be credited to next year.)
  5. Especially given international travel will be back on next year, you would think it would actually be worth the cash. Not saying Thai/King Power politics were the driving force behind this year's deal...
  6. I'd like to see a Cup Winner's Cup run alongside the other competitions -- chance for a European double. But all 3 of these group stage competitions should be 48 teams with 12 groups, with the 8 best 3rd place finishers going into a round of 32 -- no dropping to another competition. Actually, I'd make the conference 64 teams and guarantee each association one group stage team (not necessarily in the conference if a low ranking association gets a team in Europa league group stage)
  7. One thing that might cause it to backfire is that the money might not actually be there -- so many big TV contracts across the world have been nullified because networks just can't pay what they agree. Even in the US, the big leagues are bracing themselves for a cut in revenue during the next round of contracts. I'd love to see these guys agree to some big deal, and then just not get paid.
  8. It's like saying Leicester in 2016 (and Liverpool last year, for that matter) shouldn't be allowed to win the league because they didn't win the league the year before. Absolutely insane. Seriously, not even Roma fans would buy that logic. No football fans do -- only brand managers and marketing majors.
  9. The Premier League has the most to lose from a European Super League -- it makes more money than any of the other leagues, is the most competitive and has the most teams with followings outside the Big 6: There are more Leeds, Everton, and Aston Villa fans in the world than comparable teams in the other big leagues. What I don't get about the European Super League proponents is that it will just be kicking the can down the road for most of them. A closed "Super League" will itself develop its own Burnleys and Southhamptons. When the next TV deal comes, the perpetual losers of the S
  10. I had a friend in Rome who did the English language Serie A commentary from a studio in the city, even if it was the Milan derby.
  11. If Gray comes off the bench, there will be a literal price tag attached to his shirt.
  12. He has been wrong a few times, which points to either an effort by the club to sniff out the leak with bad info, or someone having a peak at the training ground. It could be his source dries up once the team moves to Seagrave.
  13. Not really. The whole point of subscription based models like Prime is to make people forget they are paying for it. If you are paying £70 a year for Prime, but really only signed up for the Premier League, you are going to be slightly peeved every time you spend extra on a game, but won't give it a second thought if you spend a tenner on a movie. Same if you signed up for Prime for next day shipping or videos -- you won't think twice about paying for a football match, but will be a little peeved with a late package or not enough free good movies. Does Amazo
  14. Depends. If a large proportion of people subscribing to Prime for football end up spending more on Amazon -- especially buying movies and TV -- then it makes sense to keep it part of the basic service.
  15. Albrighton amazes me -- every window since Summer 16 (face it, winter 16 with Gray) it seems the manager signs someone to replace him, and he always works his way back into the 11, even with little end product.
