  1. My advice to Teemu would be: whatever you do, don't fall over.

    The genie is out of the bottle - in more ways than one

    I'm seriously concerned that teams like Burnley will try to kick us off the park. I was hoping there might be better reffing in the PL (especially with VAR) but so far that hasn't been forthcoming - for other teams as well.

    Sorry, he's a nasty piece of work. I wouldn't want him anywhere near the club.

    He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,And rouse him at the name of Fark-eHe that shall live this day, and see old age,Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,And say 'To-morrow is Saint Daniel:'Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.And say 'These wounds I had on Daniel's day.'Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,But he'll remember with advantagesWhat feats he did that day: then shall our names.Familiar in his mouth as household wordsPukki, the king, Cantwell and Amadou,Tettey and Byram, Lewis and EmiBe in their flowing cups freshly remember'd.This story shall the good man teach his son;And Daniel Stuart shall ne'er go by,From this day to the ending of the world,But we in it shall be remember'd;We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;For he to-day that sheds his sweat with meShall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,This day shall gentle his condition:And gentlemen in England now a-bedShall think themselves accursed they were not here,And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaksThat fought with us upon Saint Daniel's day.

    Mainstream praise comes flooding in

    https://www.planetfootball.com/trending/emi-buendia-took-on-manchester-city-at-their-own-game-and-won/ That second goal was a thing of beauty. From Buendia's flick to Marco's pass to Pukki's superb sliderule pass to Todd's tricking the ManC defence by bending his run to his ice cool finish ... I've been waiting for this moment all my life ... something in the air tonight ... How does he even begin to think to do this? And then do it?? https://thumbs.gfycat.com/DeadDefiantAmericanavocet-mobile.mp4

    Unlikely CENTER Backs

    I believe I saw Alex dropping into the back 4 at times yesterday to cover for Ibrahim or Ben. Doing this could be a useful tactic against lesser teams this season, as we know Ben likes to burst forward occasionally & I'm sure Ibrahim can do likewise. Yet more brilliant options ...

    Nature or nurture?

    For me Webber/Farke are this century's Taylor/Clough. Different dynamic obviously, but they complement each other superbly. And what they achieved has one particular thing in common: match winning performances from unlikely looking teams The value of our squad is often discussed, but I think one of the reasons we haven't had huge sums bid for our players is that other clubs realise that we get uniformly outstanding performances from them, more than they could ever get at a different club. There are notable exceptions to this (Maddison), but our management team recruit players that 'fit', that genuinely produce something greater than the sum of its parts. I think character - particularly the belief that it's the team that absolutely, really comes first, comes before personal ambition - is paramount in their decision making.
