  1. He's got a good song though. That's good enough for me.
  2. He's not good in the air for his size (over 6 ft). Four headed goals in his career.
  3. There is a lot of noise about Arsenal signing Edouard so we might well miss out.
  4. This post made me laugh. I was trying to make the same point but spent about six paragraphs doing it. Why didn't I just say that
  5. It really doesn't feel like it to me. Obviously I don't follow other clubs closely but I would be surprised if anyone has had it quite as tough as we have. Your stat in isolation could be misleading. It doesn't tell you whether they are key players or fringe. I found this link listing the teams with number of games missed by injured players: https://www.planetfootball.com/quick-reads/ranking-pl-clubs-by-the-no-of-games-missed-by-injured-players-in-20-21/ Crystal Palace are top with 53 games missed but crucially, the text underneath reads:

Of course this next few weeks will be a tough watch at times, it is to be expected due to circumstances so let's stop acting as if we're in denial or blind to it. Our second XI is nowhere near as good as our first, We have an unbalanced squad, light in some areas and heavy in others and the big
  10. I'm glad you feel calmer. Here's one of my own: Needs work. Not sure about the meter. C minus. or: Tough night At least Villa lost Every cloud....
  11. Also the golden boot holder. Are you really going to use Vardy as a benchmark to press a claim for Wood?
  12. I like this succinct five word malarkey, I think it should be a new rule implemented forthwith.
  13. Hmmm...We don't have a 14 point cushion this time. Hard times ahead.
