  1. The Claude Puel Era - what will he bring?

    You mean when we hit the post? Had that gone in we would have been level and our throwing men forward would have been entirely justified.
  2. The "do they mean us?" thread

    Except he didn't.
  3. Kasper Schmeichel

    Great interview, showing Kasper to be really generous in spirit.
  4. LCFC Internationals 2017/18

    I can't see what he has either. Hate it when he gets caught out and, instead of putting in the effort to hare back and make up for his error, he just ambled back and looks to someone else (or just hope) to cover for his mistake. I don't see him as a team player at all.
  5. Next up . . . Manchester City (Home) thoughts?

    I said "we need to go after them all over the pitch and show them neither fear nor respect", and I stick with that. Had we shown that same attitude since the title win, even with the loss of Kante, we would not have seen such an abysmal title defence and we would have been in a much better position both last season and this. We arguably have a better squad than that season and, even though the top team squads have improved too, I believe that we should be able to approach any match without fear and with self-belief.
  6. Next up . . . Manchester City (Home) thoughts?

    2-2? You call that optimistic? We need to go after them all over the pitch, and show neither fear nor respect, just as we did in our title-winning season.
  7. Euthanasia, Could you, Would you?

    I'm encouraged that so many on here take the humane view that an individual should be able to opt to have his life ended by painless, clinical means. Surveys consistently show that about 80% of the populace support this view, yet attempts to pass legislation to enable this are repeatedly baulked in Parliament by bodies with their own narrow-minded agendas, who think they should deprive other individuals of the right to decide for themselves. Anyone who feels strongly about this and wishes to see the law change should support the campaign group "Dignity in Dying". I would not like to see anyone who, at some time in the future, is desperate to avail themselves of a service to end their lives and can only regret that they did not do more to help such a service become available.
  8. I hope we never change from being a club that sticks two fingers up at the self-serving football authorities and media. Getting stick from media "experts" is a price worth paying
  9. Rudkin

    All that shows is Allardyce's lack of judgement ( something not uncommon with him of late). This claim by Sky about who made the decision. Is it to be believed? Surely our owners have other advisors with extensive football knowledge that they would turn to. The media rarely demonstrate true knowledge about what goes on inside football clubs.
  10. Carry On Cup QF - Man City at Home

    Agreed. We can't complain about luck - home against Leeds and now at home again. We have to see it as a fantastic opportunity, and I see no reason to be daunted at the prospect of Man C at the KP. Also, not sure of the rules for this cup, but if one of the top 4 teams wins it (which seems likely) but qualify for the Champs League on the basis of their final league position, would we qualify for Europe if we were the losing finalist?
  11. Next City Manager?

    Yes, thanks. I can only repeat other posters who point out that his reputation for turgid play stems only from his single season at Southampton and that could be explained by the poor quality of players at his disposal, esp given injury problems. Previous to that he appeared to employ an attacking approach, and stats provided earlier on here show that even during that boring run of games Southampton created lots of chances but simply didn't have good enough forwards to put the chances away. I do take your point about the boring interviews and wondering whether he could inspire his players, but even then a manager's persona with the press can be totally different from his interaction with his players (Pearson is a prime example). I am hopeful that his reputation for developing players, especially the youngsters, will serve us well. For me the jury is out but, on balance, I am guardedly optimistic that it will work out well for us.
  12. Next City Manager?

    That doesn't answer the question - why? Have you any reasons to justify your view?
  13. A club in crisis

    I hope he's doing at least that. Given the lack of football nous within the higher echelons at our club at the moment it would be criminal negligence if we didn't make use of Pearson's know-how in this situation.
  14. The "do they mean us?" thread

    Find it hard to believe he's a player we would have gone for.
