  1. Not sure, he mentioned something about him only getting because of injuries this time. Southgate has this reputation as a good public speaker but he does talk down plenty of players too.
  2. I'm not sure Southgate wants the lot of them- Maddison, Grealish, Lingard. Grealish only seemed to get in because Southgate was bored of all the clamour, not through any great positivity about him.
  3. Agreed, they've still got to play Everton and Chelsea and if the title is wrapped up and they are still in Europe they may drop off.
  4. It would take an age to get a Minor County team up to county standard, I know it's not the complete guide but when they played in the Natwest Trophy 20 years ago there were barely any victories over first-class teams. As poor as we are generally in four day cricket, a Minor County team wouldn't do any better for a number of years.
  5. Never liked Danny Mills so not too annoyed he never played for us.
  6. When we had our great escape run, we started with three mid-table teams in West Ham, West Brom and Swansea and we managed 9 points and 7 goals. Fulham managed 0 points and 2 goals. These types of matches can go both ways.
  7. And we're not a selling club in the true sense of the term. That means (or used to mean) clubs would just sell as quickly as possible as soon as a good player showed his worth- we fight our corner to get great prices which we've certainly done in the past two years.
  8. Fulham's image has really just benefitted from not being the shambles they were last time. I think they should be staying up from the position they got themselves into but no points from the last three is a terrible run.
  9. I could've understood it more if say BBC One was rolling news with talking heads whilst BBC Two showed archive footage. But to show the exact same thing was too much. A sizable amount of the viewing and listening public want something else to watch/ listen to, they should've kept it on BBC One and News channels, Radio 4 and 5 Live and the rest go back to normal with regular updates to inform new viewers or listeners such as a ticker line along the bottom of the screen. TV and radio should be about choice.
  10. Different companies maybe but exactly the same thing on both BBC channels, nothing on BBC Four and all the radio stations stopped broadcasting their own stuff for hours. Why does Radio 1 Dance or 5 Live Sports Extra need to cut away from their usual schedule for half the day?
  11. Channel 4 have been criticised for returning to normal programming.
  12. They cancelled a Premier League match that day, nobody was sure why.
  13. Not a massive fan of the Royals but don't mind the Queen, hope she's ok on this very sad day. 73 years is a hell of a marriage and commitment.
  14. Not quite sure where to put this but does the coverage of Prince Philip's death need to be on every possible BBC TV and Radio station? Surely BBC One and the News channel can simulcast and BBC Two run to a fairly normal schedule? They are showing the exact same thing currently.
  15. He'd gone- he didn't want to be here. I think this was the team he'd love to play in but it has come too late.
  16. Just very odd. He's at a club where he's won a stash of trophies and is about to add several more, playing for a top manager, playing Champions League football. Why we need to hear all this stuff about him wanting to be at Arsenal when he's far better than their current level is strange. Unless he still wants to go there?
  17. The only great player we've lost in the past three years is Mahrez.
  18. One of the worst results in our history. The ramifications of keeping Taylor after giving him another hefty amount of money to spend only to make us even worse than the 10 matches that preceded it were seismic. Sounds completely mad to suggest sacking a manager after one match of the season was already too late but that was the case.
  19. Slavia Prague with a late equaliser. Bunch of twats they may be, they clearly aren't a bad side.
  20. Yeah, look at the bottom of the article, he speaks about joining Man City. No idea why this has been dragged up again.
  21. Didn't this come out two years ago originally?
  22. Not that season, the year after (summer 2004). Dublin, Keown, Pressman, Gemmill, Wilcox, Blake- all past it. Surely the lower leagues had up and coming players who were relatively cheap?
  23. Even three goal leads weren't a guarantee. I remember we played Sheffield United just before he left, cruised into a 3-0 lead and were holding on at the end to avoid a draw. I've no idea what happened when we got into a 2 goal lead, I'm sure we failed to win at least 8 matches from that position in his tenure.
