Premier League Thread 2019/20

Recommended Posts

Back to the language debate. Nobody would give two shits whether someone could or couldn't speak the language as long as they were doing their job well. Ranieri has managed in England on and off for nearly 20 years and I still can't understand a single sentence that comes out of his mouth. Nobody cared when we were winning the league though. The only way Emery will stop being a figure of ridicule is if he can get Arsenal winning again. Simple as that.

Just watching the Villa - Newcastle game.

 

Question: is Miguel Almiron the worst striker in the league?

 

Must be close. Have seen him a few times now and he's been dire on each occasion. 

 

 

 

 

He looks like he belongs in a cartoon strip - Billy’s Boots.....or, for those of a certain age, Limp Along Leslie or The Brampton Keys.

He was respectful as well and didn't publically moan about it but just like Drinkwater I was really happy to see him go at that price. I'm a great believer in selling players who I believe are replaceable and peaked in value which I was sure Drinkwater and Maguire both fitted into that category.

 

I never wanted Mahrez to go but we had little choice in the end, it's extremely difficult for a club like ours to replace a Mahrez.

 

The one that really annoyed me was Kante leaving as I thought we could challenge the top clubs if we kept our star players. I thought we had five exceptional players that season and the other six did an outstanding job but we could replace them with much better players. I thought if we signed about three big upgrades alongside Schmeichel, Drinkwater, Kante, Mahrez and Vardy we could be a great side.All things considered though we had no choice but to sell Kante due to his release clause and we did well getting another £10m out of Chelsea when he was available to some other clubs for £20m.

Maguire was alright for us in the 2 years but the World Cup massively helped us when selling. Unlike the 3 players that left each summer post title it was the one where it was right for us to sell.

 

Even if we had held onto Kante it wouldn't have helped us much. The fallout from the post Pearson era started to hit hard that summer and thing were too unstable for the club as a whole to take it further.

 

In N'Didi since Rodgers arrived we've got the next best thing to him.

I think Kante was the catalyst for the fall out. It unsettled his mate Mahrez and drinky was exposed. Left a big hole that we couldn't fill.

Grealish may be disliked by many but he has natural balance for a footballer

 

 

I don't really get the hate for him to be honest. He's a young lad, living his dream. Probably could do with a few more goals/assists but he's good to watch.

Gary Neville not offering the best insight ... United have young players who need leaders. Isn’t that Maguires job? He reckons Martial and Rashforr are still raw. Hasn’t Martial been in first teams pretty much since he was 17? And his mate nose at 18?

Does anybody know why the upcoming Wednesday night premier league matches - including ours against Watford on Dec 4th - are all 7:30 kick offs rather than the usual 7:45? I always struggle to make the kick off at night matches and just get to my seat for kick off but I’m going to struggle like hell to make half 7!

Why don't you ask the premier League if they'll put it back 15 minutes for you?

I love Grealish. Probably my favourite non Leicester PL player. Bit of a rough diamond, unconventional, plenty of attitude and talent. 

 

Reminds me a bit of our own No. 9

Jesus. Imagine actually supporting Newcastle. 

I have mate who does. Strange fans. Genuinely couldn't understand Perez moving to Leicester, thought the clubs were on par with each other. Seems to get excited by the most average players who produce nothing. He loves Almiron and Saint-Martin.

Tbf Saint-Maxim has all the tools to be a baller. He makes Vardy look pedestrian almost and he loves to go at people. He reminds me of Adama Traore. Power and pace but little end product, however the latter appears to be starting to deliver  I honestly would take Maxim as a squad player.

Yeah I’ve got a mate who supports Newcastle too and this sounds like him. 
 

I think he’s also a closet united fan, has started getting behind spurs now Jose has gone there and his dad supports Inter Milan (they’re all born and bred Ashfield BTW) - so I think he’s just a bit of a ****
