  1. New training ground announced

    See now this excites me - sounds as if there is lots and lots of long-term planning by our owners, with Puel at the center. Really makes you feel like he is going to contribute to the club as a whole rather than just the first team squad. Hurray consistency, and a holistic approach!

  3. Swansea City (h) Post-Match 1-1

    1st half we played really well. Just a mad 20 minutes and defending of set plays that let us down.
  4. Swansea City (h) Post-Match 1-1

    As soon as Ndidi's goal was disallowed you could see this result coming a mile off. Missed the goal as my stream cut out, but I'm not surprised by what I'm hearing. Set pieces are a massive weakness, and a worry. Bright spots were that Nacho and Vardy worked well together at times, Ndidi was excellent, Dragovic and Maguire play well together in open play and Silva looked really good until he tired. Can't wait until he's fully up-to-speed with the league.
  5. Everton 2-1 A Post Match Thread

    As the game went on you could see he was trying, but for much of it he was just overwhelmed. Always felt like he was isolated, until he disappeared. Much worse culprits out there today.
  6. Everton (A) Match Thread

    If you're talking about the first goal, I'd argue he was protecting his front post, and Maguire should have slid in to block the cross. I'm clutching at straws anyway - they've all been poor 😅
  7. Everton (A) Match Thread

    Fault is entirely with the players here. This is pretty much the team you'd expect Puel to pick, and rightfully so based on recent performances. However, Chilwell is being ripped to shreds by Walcott and Sigurdsson, leading to a ton of mistakes. James, I hate to say, has disappeared and Gray just isn't doing much. To be honest you could make the case for all of them playing rubbish, bar Kasper and Albrighton (he's doing his best with no support or forwards to get on the end of his crosses).
  8. Everton (A) Match Thread

    I'm not one to moan about refs, but wtf has this guy got against us? Every decision going Everton's way or just disrupting our play...or am I seeing things??

    ****ing disgusting performance from 20 minutes onwards. What the hell is happening?
  10. Ulloa - To Brighton on loan (Page 8)

    Be great to see Ulloa back at Brighton. They still love him down this way. However they've just signed a striker, and Glenn Murray is their top scorer...unless as some have suggested, they're looking to drop Murray due to the tax issues?
  11. I see what you're saying, but I don't think anyone thought he was a guaranteed starter - he was bought as much for potential as the impact he made for Man City off the bench. £25m might be quite a bit, but I honestly think that was to prise him away from Man City - by all accounts, Pep thought he had a lot of potential, so was reluctant to let him go. How many minutes has he actually played for us now? I just don't think he's played enough to judge yet. For me, that 18 minute or whatever cameo in pre-season with him, Vardy and Mahrez looked devastating. Here's hoping it still happens.
  12. He's 21. Good coaching will bring out his all-round game.
  13. Huddersfield (H) Match Thread

    Wait, what? Silva's on the bench?
  14. Didn't catch the game unfortunately, and although it's gutting we went 1 up and still lost, objectively this is fine. They have the best attacking front line in the league, and we didn't completely capitulate. Plus Everton and Watford both lost, so we're still 8th. Roll on the next game!
  15. Watford (A) pre-match

    He works as a wing back, just not a right back/full back. And to be honest, I wouldn't want his crossing ability pushed that far back - it's a major threat for us when he's on form.
