    Watched a lot of Bundesliga games the season KDB was at Bremen. Not so much since. Thanks for the links.

    I've never knowingly seen this bloke play. If he's better than Reece James then he's one hell of a footballer. P.S. Just watched an all touches video vs Dortmund. Looked OK. A few stray passes but also a good piece of attacking skill, a good piece of defending, a good pass and a good cross. On the evidence of that video I see no reason at all to bring this bloke in and put him ahead of Reece. Maybe a different video might give a different impression but, on the basis of his display vs BVB, promoting this bloke over Reece would be a silly decision.

  4. This post comes dangerously close to judging the issue before any facts are available. Of course the officials would not intentionally break the rules because they are not going to be any worse at working out the odds than you or me. In fact since they have way better information than we do, it's inevitable that they are better at it than we fans. I know it suits egos to imagine we know stuff which shows that we are cleverer than the club but that's just fantasy. When the dust has fully settled on this, and that will not necessarily be after the initial verdict, will be plenty of time to reach an informed opinion on this matter. Meantime you're just venting based on nothing substantial.
  5. The board have confidently denied any wrong doing. Let's see how it shakes out but just because there's an accusation and an investigation, does not mean there's guilt. I'm not getting agitated about this.

    This I do agree with.

    Never believed in this bloke since I watched him in Italy. Over dribbles, passes as a last resort and even then not particularly well. I expect I'll be challenged on this opinion but, until I see Sanchez produce more rounded and more consistent performances, I doubt I'll be changing my mind. He created good stats at Arsenal for sure but there was always discontent with his overall play among a section of their fans. My feeling is that his time with Arsenal will turn out to be similar to Nando's at Liverpool; the exception that proves the rule. That 'rule' being that he flatters to deceive and is in fact a bit below top class.

    Marcin has shown up in that 3rd keeper slot a few times.

    Greaves would not have lost his place had he not been injured but, the truth is, that by 1966 the alcoholism had already taken a toll on Greaves. There’s a great story about a Tottenham player complaining at half time about Greaves standing around on the halfway line, doing nothing as usual. The manager told the player that if he scored 40 goals a season like Greaves then he could go and stand there next to him. Its a nice story but although Jimmy’s talent ranks with the game’s all time greats, the truth is that he drank it away and ultimately wasted it. His statistics reflect his immense ability, but his overall accomplishments betray how much the booze held him back.

    I haven’t seen it as you have but this must be an exaggeration. Either that or Icardi doesn’t get many chances. The truth is that not even Jimmy Greaves needed just one chance and he’s the best pure finisher who ever lived. I take your point though. Icardi would upgrade our side significantly.

    Pete, You never read that Vesper described herself as a man. You just assumed that because she said she has a wife. I hope you’ve now had enough clues to get it sorted to your satisfaction.
  12. General Transfer Talk

    You’re still not engaging the brain Pete. Another example may help. Viggy Lindahl plays in goal for Chelsea Women. She was voted best female keeper in the world last year. Viggy is married. She and her wife are very happy. Hope this helps you to join the dots.

    You need to broaden your horizons a bit fella. That, or think a bit harder before you post on this subject. For example, I know someone who was born male but identifies as a gay woman. The world is a beautiful place but a lot of its subtleties are missed if viewed only in black and white.

    Now you're talking. If I were related to Sir Gary I'd probably mention it in every post I make. Cricket is the only thing in the entire universe which gives me even a hint of a smidge of a ghost of a reason to think that a god might possibly exist. When I watch test cricket the thought comes to me that if there was a god, this is the game he'd have invented for his own pleasure. P.S. As a boy I supported Notts because Sobers played for them but then Lancashire signed Clive Lloyd, a distant relative of mine, so I switched allegiance and remain a fan of the red rose county's cricket team to this day. I only ever watch them at Lord's or The Oval however.
  15. BATE Borisov 0-1 Chelsea

    The man in charge is well aware of the fact that we need to improve both in terms of team performance and individual squad members' qualities. We know this because he has said so. Maybe your problem is with Maurizio, not with those of us who agree with him.
