Who did he take it off? There wasn’t actually anyone who wanted to step up and take it if I remember correctly. Harry Kane might have wanted it but other than that no one else was forthcoming. 
 

The following season Nugent started being the regular taker.

he didnt take it off any1. king or drinkwater gave him the ball to take it lol. it was one of those 2

Soo been watching sky sports news for around 25 mins. Headlines ... Harry Kane reaches 250, 1-1 draw between the ‘top 2’ and an interview with both aunts Jose and cousin Arteta. Do the leaders of the PL not exist!? Lol. They even mentioned how Spurs went top haha. 
 

I know this doesn’t trigger others and I know what your responses will be. But Jesus wept sky really do dislike us it’s just petty. I just find it really bizarre that the league leaders who did play today get no mention lol 

 

edit - now we go the dean smith who’s side are just three points off leaders Leicester. Woooooo

Spurs and Arsenal have more supporters than us. Sky are playing to their audience so their audience stays and watches adverts.

Sky are dicks. 

 

They have always been baised to the big clubs, but this season if just seems so much more obviously than usual. 

Maybe because more fans are watching sky as they are not at the game. 

 

The bullshit around Villa and Leeds is sickening. 

 

On another note, how is Madison not in the England squad? 

 

Sancho grealish Madison sterling

Kane

 

What a front five that would be.

Its based on income, sponsorships, revenue, wages paid etc. Arsenal, for example, finished 8th last season but their income and sponsorship deals completely dwarfs ours. There's no comparison.

I get it. If some billionaire Sheik buys say Burnley, then because of revenue streams etc.  they will be one of the new  Big 7.

5 subs being discussed again on MOTD, only a matter of time before it's implemented isn't it?

 

They were just saying when it's two teams in Europe playing each other then they should be allowed to make 5 subs each.

I think 5 subs would benefit us in more games than not to be honest.

I kind get what they were saying and not that I agree with all that was said. But we contradict most of what was said. We probably have the most injuries of any of these teams and yet we top both the Premier league and our Europa group. Yet because results aren't going their way they don't like it they can't have it all their own way they moan like spoilt little children.

It could, especially when you look at how we've managed this year by bringing player in who are just as good as the first teamers. Castagne and Mendy for example.

It would when all our injuries are back.

 

But I don't agree with it, they're only saying this because the big 6/7 are struggling. They just don't want the rest of the EPL to have a good season and finish in the European spaces for once. If they aren't happy with the game load, throw the League Cup and the FA Cup, use more of the academy graduates, ask the FA and the national teams to end the silly friendlies or they could have increased the 25 man squad to 26 or 27, but this should have been done at the start of the season, not a quarter of the way into it.

To be honest, whilst I'm obviously extremely happy and excited we're doing as well as we are, it does worry me a little that 6 of Vardy's 8 goals so far have been penalties... Makes me worry about how sustainable our form is. I'm very pleased with the team, but I think we are probably overperforming right now, so I hope we won't get too upset as fans if results drop off a bit.

Well the stats people were saying we were over performing at the start of last season too, especially in shot conversion rate. We did revert to the mean at the tail end causing us to miss out on the CL.

 

Hopefully won’t happen this season, but I’m all along for the ride!

Bit off topic, but does anyone remember when most of Nuge's goals "didn't count" cos they were penalties? It's funny we don't seem to have people piping up with that argument about Vardy.
