  1. I think we just got a bit comfortable in possession. Bournemouth didn’t press, especially when down to ten, and we seemed to settle in a slow tempo style. Felt to me like watching a pre season friendly. Also worth nothing there’s hardly and players with premiership experience prior to this season. Only krul, tettey and byram our of the starting line up with Hanley coming on as sub.

    Jamal Lewis

    Wouldn’t be too bothered if sold. Has a lot of potential, but really needs to bulk up over the summer. Has looked incredibly lightweight this season and one I’ve been slightly disappointed in.

    Your predictions - City v AFCB

    3-1 for me. Think Duda will definitely start and hopefully give another dimension to our game. Pukki back in the goals. The only negative is the 89th minute goal we concede following a corner, which replays show, should have been a goal kick.
  4. Agree with the zonal marking argument. Think it can work if you have a strong physical side. With ours not being that physical, anyone with a running jump is going to tend to win the ball.
  5. His competition for the attacking centre midfield spot are McLean and steiperman. I read they have a combined total of one goal and one assist all season.( Not checked if this is correct. ) Any time you can potentially upgrade the first eleven you should take it, unless it will put you in financial difficulty.

    Google translate DOHA - Ajax must make a decision earlier than planned about the future of Sven Botman (19). Norwich City has registered in Amsterdam for the talented center defender, who is now rented out to SC Heerenveen. The English want to take over the youth international immediately. With that, the Premier League club poses Marc Overmars for a difficult choice. Initially, the intention was to follow Botman's development closely. After the rental period to the Frisians, it could then be assessed whether the defender would be good enough for Ajax 1 in the long term. Recently, Overmars and head scout Henk Veldmate visited SC Heerenveen-Willem II to see Botman live. Due to the interest from England, Botman will sooner want to know what route Ajax wants to go with him and - more importantly - whether Erik ten Hag sees it in him. The Badhoevedorper is under contract with Ajax for another two years, which, however, cannot claim the top prize for him. Botman still has a youth contract. At Norwich City, where goalkeeper Tim Krul is also under contract, there is a much more lucrative and longer commitment for Botman. Botman, who is celebrating his twentieth birthday on Sunday, this season saw 18 Eredivisie games for SC Heerenveen. He scored twice and delivered four assists. He is currently training camp with his teammates in Spain.

    I thought farkes quote about the attitudes of loan players was interesting. Maybe a dig at Roberts.

    Godfrey as cdm

    The thing with godfrey at cb is that, in my opinion, he gets bullied a bit in the air a bit. With Aaron’s and Lewis also very lightweight we always seem to look vulnerable from set pieces and crosses. I think we’ve looked more solid since Hanley and zimmerman have played together. Hopefully as godfrey fills out as he gets older he can improve on this as I think he has all the other attributes of an excellent cb. I think he would be perfect for us in that defensive midfield position now though. Very athletic with decent passing. Can’t see farke playing him there though.

    Team V Man U

    When vrancic is fully fit I’d love to see him in steipermanns position.

    Godfrey u21 captain?

    I imagine he must have really impressed at their training camp to go from substitute to captain. Top player.
