    We're 4 games in, we've played 2 of the best sides in Europe...... Toughen up.

    Haven't we max'd out on imports until January?

    London Stadium

    This could go on a while, and tbh I can't really be bothered, let's agree to disagree.

    Huddersfield Shirt

    Why can't we just have 'a fine City' on our shirts.

    We need to talk about Efan

    I made this point a few weeks ago, after Pukki's hat trick against Newcastle, Jimmy Nicol said that Pukki doesn't score classy goals like 'a Robbie Fowler '...... I'm over it now

    Crystal Palace Tickets

    Had my tat for years, saves wearing a shirt all the time, I get a lot of comments as no one knows what it is in NZ.

    London Stadium

    I'm glad that you enjoyed your time in the East End, like anywhere else it's much nicer to visit knowing that you don't actually have to live there. As for the facilities, it's interesting that the pool you mentioned is the only one serving the whole of East London apart from an old lido at London Fields, so I hope it would be busy. The Velodrome is one of only two in a City with north of 7 million people, the other one, built in the 1890s is in Herne Hill. As a London Cab Driver I remember the day we beat Paris to win the bid, how we were told that we could put on a show for around 8 billion. Today, estimates are running somewhere around 23 billion and we're not finished yet. I remember the locals who couldn't get a job constructing the Olympic Park and to add insult to injury were then moved out of their homes to allow it's construction. I remember when they put in the ZIL lanes, roads that we paid for but weren't allowed to use, so they could ferry members of the Olympic family backwards and forwards in courtesy BMW's. Then there was the lottery that was trying to get tickets, I spoke to a lady who wanted to see her daughter compete in the judo, she got four tickets to watch the sailing, in Weymouth, a mile offshore and it was foggy. Like I say dan, I'm glad you had a good time, you're still paying for it after all, but I won't be going anytime soon.
  8. ..... which is exactly what Webber said after we won the title, no one was complaining then.

    London Stadium

    I remember when the Olympic Park was built, a'Legacy for London' it was described as. The day after the Olympics finished and the great and the good left, the place stood in darkness for 2 years. The taxpayer, having had to pay for this, then saw their 'legacy' almost given away in an attempt to justify its construction. It was a white elephant from day one, a vanity project that you're all going to be paying for, for a generation. The 'legacy' thing was always a joke for the locals, I grew up in the East End and know nobody who did equestrian events or canoeing. Fencing was done in the back garden, sprinting was for bag snatchers and the only thing that was synchronized was mugging.... oh and shooting would of course be of interest.

    Sweeper System, could this work?

    I don't think that we have the personnel, our defensive problems are the lack of CBs, currently 3 on the treatment table... ...and getting the balance right in front of the back four, hopefully Amadou will fill that role. A bit of luck with injuries will be a big help.

    Despite yesterday we are still in the mix

    By the last 2 performances, do you mean Crawley or Chelsea? Crawley doesn't matter, a completely new 11 given a run out. As for Chelsea, Europa Cup Winners and 3rd last year, yes they won, and they deserved to, but we were in the game for the full 90 and were a crossbar away from a point. ...as for points, I don't get yours.

    I don't think that DF is going into the game thinking we are going to lose, that's his job. As for the rest of us......

    Getting tired of this turgid nonsense.

    Pukki nominated as player of month

    Nominated by former Binner, Sam Parkin, they won't be pleased, South of the border.

    Now Hanley is injured

    He might be able to make the step up Alex, indeed, I hope you're right, it should be considered that the performances you mentioned came after a run of games. To be able to step up without a pre season, an injury and far better opponents would be very impressive.

    Now Hanley is injured

    Still this idea that Farke is dropping Hanley? He was quoted as saying that despite an unfortunate own goal at Anfield, he's performed well and is pleased for him. (In connection to his call up for Scotland) Many on here wanted him out, you got your wish, but he's injured, not dropped.. ..unless you're calling Farke a liar.

    Aarons, Godfrey, Cantwell all in u21's

    There's a way to go yet Pete, I'm sure that there are players, older and ahead of them for the full squad.... give it time.
