  1. Why is Gray Starting

    Reading a self help book means that you want to develop yourself. It doesnt mean you dont think you need help I agree he hasnt done well this season in the premier league. Last season he wasnt getting game time when he should have been because everyone else was s**t. Thats what he was complaining about and i agreed. Admittedly he was perhaps a bit arrogant and thought he would do better than he has done with his opportunities This season he has not taken his chances well and I bet he knows he's not been good enough and to me yesterday's game looked like he was trying to aid the team and get the simple things right. I agree he has not lived up to the hype. But I think the criticism he is getting on here for yesterday is unfair and people are just angry that we didnt win and are venting on him. I say this because he didnt have a terrible game yesterday, he did not play selfishly and he did play for the team. That being, of course on the whole he needs to improve But I must confess a bias because he did come out of my vagina Yours Mrs Gray

    Dont think this is true, that he thinks he is developed Wasnt he pictured carrying a self help book the other week?
  3. Why is Gray Starting

    Im surprised about people slating his performance yesterday because for me he played in mind of his weaknesses yesterday He has often been slated for poor decision making, taking pot shots, not seeing team mates etc... Yesterday he kept it simple, maybe too simple, but thats what you have to do if things havent been going so well. He was probably one of the least wasteful in possession yesterday in contrast to others in the midfield and his previous games, and he made less mistakes than most I dont think he makes enough direct runs to create space for himself or others, maybe thats why Puel tried him as a number 10 as Gray doesnt stretch the pitch as much as he should as a winger i think But for people to slate him for yesterday when he actually snuffed out the things in his game that he gets criticised on here for every week i dont really get If he starts getting the simple things right first then he has a better chance of building confidence and incorporating the flair aspect of his game Not sure if it was correct to start him as a number 10 yesterday though

    Gray did nothing wrong yesterday. Did the opposite of what he always gets slated for and made no mistakes, didnt lose possession, didnt shoot from miles out instead of passing to a team mate (like mahrez did once for example) He didnt have much of an impact, but nobody else really did And i did think he was regressing and a concern, but his performance yesterday was I thought a step forward He has done nothing of late to suggest a bad attitude.
  5. Stoke post match 1-1

    I'm still happy to blame Mahrez for another game or two
  6. Stoke post match 1-1

    Most people on here slating Gray but I actually thought he had a fairly tidy game. Looked for his team mates and had a good passing game, kept possession well. Didnt pull up trees but it was a more solid starting performance than he's had recently. Something he can build on, for me. We lacked intensity for too much of the game. This passing evolution looks to be a bit of a myth atm for too large a portion of matches. Was a game full of poor quality
  7. Who is our most Important player?

    Hate to break it to you fanboys, but its technically Andy King
  8. Stoke (H)..pre match thread.

    Quite funny, but he is miscalculating our potential somewhat. We are not wondering if we'll finish top half Top half is a bare minimum for us at this point. 7th is not unrealistic in the slightest.
  9. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    My first reaction to Brexit was that for this reason it cannot be a bad thing. But i'm worried this might be slightly naive and will just make us susceptible to WTO and TTIP structures and we will end up being a cog in an even bigger machine
  10. The UBI and related chat Thread

    Yeah, it was back in the 50s they were high. During the war they were higher, something crazy like 90% In the 50s and 60s they were at around 50, but then i'm not sure if that was a necessity of the wars in SE Asia, i guess likely
  11. The UBI and related chat Thread

    Tax rates in the US have been at those levels in the past (50% at least i recall from something i read) It may not sound acceptable but that could be just because what we expect is what we see in the current climate
  12. Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    I have heard that we have more obesity issues than hunger issues in the world now. Not necessarily saying this to counter your point. Its surely possible to be fat and happy and sane
  13. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    There is definitely something in this. I agree that many people in favour of Brexit are put down too dismissively by Remainers The problem is that Brexit does/can encompass so many things that its very fertile ground for argument I still think the referendum itself was a bad idea (not Brexit, but the referendum) because it was bound to cause a great rift. It feels like instead of thinking about specific problems and how to combat them, we are instead just thinking about Brexit, a made up word which can contain an endless number of issues to endlessly debate and about which people will never agree. I dont mean this to be a veiled dig at Brexit btw. I actually think there are probably positives that could theoretically come out of leaving the EU, I am just sceptical that they will.

    Love Ronaldo. The man is a gun and doesnt give a f**k what people think. I enjoy loving him against all the hate
  15. Vardy showing no signs of slowing down, apparently.

    They can't finish that script until they know whether they have a spectacular ending in Vardy's performance in the world cup Not that we'll get a satisfying world cup, but f**k me we could do with a bit of success to get some pride back
