    The science of Cristiano Ronaldo

    If they did anything scientific about Robbie Savage, it wouldn't stretch to 45 minutes.

    With an increasing population, the fact that we have no competition for over a hundred miles and Premiership football on offer means that we are uniquely placed to take advantage of the situation that we find ourselves in. As for 'historically' a quick look down the road shows what happens when all you do is look backwards.

    New Kits - Why did you...?

    The West Ham shirt looks like the one they wore during the Brooking, Devonshire days, with a light blue chest. I agree that the shorts should be white. As for the Chelsea shirt, it doesn't matter if it's sh!te, they'll sell millions, just like some of the abominations that Man U have dredged up over the years.

    Grant Hanley

    Unfortunately, Farke has to make that decision and as things stand Godfrey and Zimmerman are first choice with Klose coming on if needs be. The fact that Hanley hasn't had a sniff since Portsmouth (I think) shows that there's clearly a pecking order.

    Nominations for YOUR goal of the season

    .... any goal against 1p5wich is worth double
  6. On that list of 'cheapies' there are six players over 5 million, we won't be doing anything like that. The freebies like Albrighton would not have signed without a significant contract, maybe not in The big League but to be able to sign all these players, shows that the money that had recently arrived strengthened their bargaining position.

    Congratulations Yet Again to Teemu.

    Certainly been a busy 12 months.
  8. As I recall, Arsenal wanted Vardy but he chose to stay, I wonder why? Mahrez, like Kante, were not on small contracts, certainly not the sort we'd be able to afford. Just because they were not expensive to sign, doesn't mean that they were cheap.
  9. Okay, let me put it this way, there's no way that they would have won it without serious investment. The idea that 'little Leicester' are an example to us all that anyone can still win the Title is farcical.

    Man City last game

    .... only if they have nothing to play for, like in 2013, and we're on our AAA game.
  11. Some of what he said rings true, the Premiership was and is designed to promote the big Clubs, to use them to generate income through subscriptions and to maximize revenue from advertising. We're not part of this game, we're just canon fodder for the Big Clubs to bully before once again returning to the Championship, having had all our assets stripped away. If you're a fan of anyone outside the top six, you'll recognize this, the only Clubs that have won the Premiership aside from them is Blackburn and Leicester, both who have bought the title The next stage will be the Big six creating a European Super League with all the other wealthy Clubs across Europe, taking the sponsors and subscriptions with them.

    Poison chalice, aren't they on a one season transfer ban? If that's the case, Tammy Abraham and the fella who was at Wigan last year may get a game but Chelsea won't be challenging.
  13. I'm not sure what the relationship is between Archant and the Club but it would seem highly unlikely that they would do an article criticizing the new strategy. As an exile, I don't really know where I stand on this, clearly the opinion of those much closer should be taken into account.
  14. Should I laugh with you, or at you?

    Liverpool are one of the EPL's cash cows, therefore I would not be surprised if we are the first Premiership Team to be disadvantaged because of it. You read it here first........
