    Steipi

    Against Liverpool he gave the ball away too much when we needed to try and keep hold of the ball and take the sting out of the game. He was much better against Newcastle though. As I said earlier I'm not advocating dropping him but I can see an argument for it, especially against a team like Chelsea where we may need some calmer heads in the middle like we had when Leitner came on v Liverpool. I'm a big fan of Marco though and I've no doubt he'll keep improving.

    OK, re-read my post and tell me where I said anything about whether he's scored or not.

    James Norwood - No words

    Christ the sense of humour bypass here is quite something. 'Not a great look.' One of our players was hammered on the town hall balcony at about 10am. It was funny and was treated as such. Norwood is probably a **** but its a light-hearted gif. Chill out.
  4. Getting carried away is fun- who cares? Just as I've said to LDC that I don't believe anything negative posted on this forum has any affect on what happens on the pitch, I don't think fans thinking we can beat Chelsea will make any difference to the result. Football is supposed to be fun- if you can't get carried away when your team plays well then whats the point?

    I don't think we have actually had scapegoats very often. Just some people love to cry the s word the second anyone says anything critical of a players performance.

    One of the things Marco does very well is find pockets of space between the oppositions defence and midfield and then turn and run at defenders when he has the ball. I'm not sure of anyone else in our team who can do that (Cantwell maybe?) as effectively.

    I've never been a huge fan of Vrancic at the 10 role simply because it limits his range of passing. I was impressed with how Leitner slotted in when he replaced Steipermann v Liverpool so I could see pushing him up with Vrancic in the deeper role. Equally I'd be interested to see Roberts come in with Cantwell in a more central role. I'm not saying we should drop Marco, just that suggesting it isn't scapegoating or heresy.

    He's been one of the weaker performers in the first couple of weeks and there is an argument for him dropping to the bench to accomodate someone like Vrancic. That isn't scapegoating.

    Why does everyone want to drop Cantwell all the time?

    James Norwood - No words

    As a fan of 90's WWE I found it quite funny. We're not immune to cringe worthy social media content- the Pukki/Best Fiends thing from this summer for example was horrific.

    Wolves v ManU

    How is that penalty questionable? Even the defender didn't complain!

    Ryan Bennett's resurrection

    It was- it isn't just about finding stars but about the whole squad. Look at the Championship promotion season- Ruddy in goal, Russell Martin and Marc Tierney excellent at fullback, David Fox looking like Xavi in the deep position, Crofts bringing industry, Surman a touch of class and then Jackson on a scoring spree that took us up all signed by Lambert. Similarly in the Premier League- Johnson and Howson from Leeds were a core part of our midfield for years, Pilkington was a real talent, Morison stepped up really well from the Championship etc etc. Hard to think of many duff signings under Lambert- James Vaughn maybe?

    Fabio Quagliarella

    I find Zlatan to be such a **** it is difficult to appreciate him as I should.

    Fabio Quagliarella

    Were we ever linked with him?

    Fabio Quagliarella

    I'd personally go for the one by Messi- such amazing technique and vision to pull something like that off. Quag's is lovely though.

    Paul Merson on Pukki and NCFC...

    I'd call being 4-0 down after 45 minutes a thrashing to be honest, but each to their own.

    Cantwell

    Weird how quickly Walsh went off the boil.

    Fabio Quagliarella

    Nominated for the Puskas award today. Sign him up.

    Cantwell

    Koeman seemed to fall out with players and then lose his mind in the transfer market. Adding Klassen, Rooney and Sigurdsson who all play in the number 10 position while not replacing Lukaku was an absolute headscratcher.

    Ryan Bennett's resurrection

    In this case our 'past recruitment' under Lambert was pretty excellent.

    Ryan Bennett's resurrection

    I just think we never quite got the best out of him due to a variety of factors and he got a lot of unfair stick because people wanted to defend Martin so passed the blame on to Bennett. Combining him (needed leadership and help with positioning) and Martin (whose positioning was genuinely appalling in central defense) was always going to lead to disaster.
  22. As harsh as it sounds the League needs to start letting these clubs fail and go out of business, otherwise they just lurch from crisis to crisis.

    Ryan Bennett's resurrection

    I remain unconvinced he was as bad as people made out. The only time I thought we'd stay up under Neil was when he was playing next to an actual proper central defender in Klose, rather than a converted right back who'd lost his pace or a half arsed Bassong.

    Ryan Bennett's resurrection

    I was talking about the promotions under Lambert where he played right back. He was consistently excellent for four or five seasons for us before his move to central defence.
