  1. Really loving it and it's helping to fill the footy void. I have the PES Universe OF and that helps a lot with the realism too of course. It's pretty challenging on Top Player but I don't often feel like I'm being cheated either. Maybe not playing online and avoiding FUT is also helping my general calmness!
  2. Nacho has to play, he’s scored every time he’s played them this season. Him up top with Vardy is a must. This is Madders’ final warning game before giving him a rest from the starting line up too. Stick him at the tip of the diamond and say “you’re playing 10 not 6, if I see you standing next to Soyuncu again you’re off”. Praet (must start), Youri and Wilf are rest of midfield. Praet on right to help watch Peaky Blinders Jack, but mainly as he’s been ace and his energy and box to box style makes him a must pick. Usual back 4 and Kasper in goal razzing them up from the back. Just stick the 1-4 tape on repeat and remind them how to play, please Brendan. None of this crappy wing play with crosses to no one, no Maddison dropping deep when 3 other midfielders can get the ball. I want to see players show for it and move if they haven’t got the ball. Vardy, Kels and Madders need to be close together and linking, with Dennis being a menace with runs from deep and the fulls backs providing width.
  3. The one with the bride doing the 10? 😂😂
  4. Absolute disgrace that Madders has shown there can’t believe he’s gone and shown up the club... ... those tiny glasses he was wearing were a disgrace!
  5. Anyone going to the NBC event in Philly?

    Ryan bennett

    Maybe he thinks Bennett is good?
  7. We signed Benkovic and it was a gas Soon turned out he was made of glass Celtic said he’s the real thing, only to find He came back to us, but couldn’t get in the side Please tell us what you see on loan, lot of potential and very exciting prospect. Needs to stay fit and toughen up a little. Eye for a pass, dominant in air and reads game well. That’s as much as I know (on top of writing crappy songs)
  8. But they play in different positions - he's a winger - I'd say he's competing for Perez's spot and also maybe Barnes and shifting Perez over (or inside). Also adds cover at 10 with Madders, Perez etc too
  9. HoustonFox


    He needs to stay at Southampton as he normally gets sent off when he plays us (last game excepted).
  10. Yeah, Muzzy was a real bruiser...
  11. The updates would all be about him, the sandwiches he’s eating and how he likes to “hilariously” call Owynn PH, “Patrick”. He’d probably also claim that his presence got the signing over the line...
  12. Is this the Bergwijn thread or the other Scottish tenuous rumours thread?
  13. This. Just worry about his pace at the top level but he's definitely got speed of thought and a great touch and still young.
  14. You know what, I’d be well upset if they got him and we didn’t
  15. At first I though you were Antonio’s agent but glad you clarified your reasoning on Carrasco. I do agree Antonio is a good and known impact player and if we can get on a cheap (as you said, probably in the summer) that will help. He turns 30 in March so definitely more a ready buy than a project and would give good depth at wing or up front too. I do like Carrasco (not his agent 😂) as he is versatile across the front 3, at 10 and even played wing back for Belgium. He’s highly skilful and creative and has some pace about him. definitely a higher maintenance character, which I know probably puts a lot of people off along with his stint in China. My real thoughts on him is if someone like Palace are going after him and we’re not that’s just a bit of a miss if we could get someone with that quality on loan with a relatively low risk but a potential upside that could be a difference maker - which is what most of us on here want (especially after the Summer of 2016). Oh, and I would be really upset if we didn’t sign him 🤣
  16. A little upset. Thanks for @henrik_62 and @Deeg67 for clarifying, they got it spot on. Totally know you are trying to be a pedant. Well done
  17. Bit harsh on De Jong who has been great at Barca and with the coaching changes, it’s because as a team they’ve not been performing. De Licht definitely not been as imperious and Kluivert has never been A-tier really. Anyway, would be fun. If not, I’m not getting too crazy on it!
  18. Totally disagree with your comments on lack of hunger. Look at Witsel now at Dortmund and Gervinho who went back to Italy and is now doing really well at Parma. They’ve shown it can be done and class is permanent, these players don’t become bad overnight. Carrasco in same boat, he has a ton of talent and has performed wherever he’s been, including for the Belgian national team while he’s been in China. Also the team be joined is a sister club to Atleti. if he’s available and we aren’t looking at him, knowing we need a strong winger, I would be surprised, and frankly a little upset too if we passed the opportunity up.
  19. Please stop. I want this to happen so much and as @Jordan knows, I’ve been on a about him for a while. I’m beginning to feel like @SheppyFox with all this angst
  20. Wing backs clearly not working and not enough guile or creativity out wide. Can’t believe he’s not brought Barnes on
  21. Wasn’t that long ago people were crying out for Big Dan as a CB too. Also what about Knight or Moore? Could they cover at a pinch? I do think we need another top class CB though, that and really, really top quality winger
