    A 18 year old making his debut as a sub for 20 minutes and you're writing him off I've never heard something so ridiculous. How the fuck can someone be called ordinary when you've seen him play for 20 minutes. Who's next for your appraisal Stamford the Lion's performance pre match ordinary, hot dog seller didn't put enough onions on ordinary. DJ's choice of songs ordinary, ball boys ordinary, you're assessment of Gilmour extraordinary !.

    i wouldn`t get rid of Kepa just yet and don`t believe the media reports where they suggest he won`t get another chance this season. but we do need to give him a proper rival for the starting birth. having Rob Green and Willy C..he hasn`t exactly had to fight for his place.
    not saying we should spend 50m plus but just somebody who Kepa would know he has to be on his A game or risk not playing for an extended period of time,perhaps permanently for us. there`s always the chance of a longterm injury too we need to be prepared for.

    would have liked to have seen him play infront of RJ at times. overlapping and covering each other.if I was Lamptey I would welcome playing that role too..England are set at RB with so much depth.would have a better chance getting in as a RW. the writing was on the wall when Frank kept him at basically just 3rd choice RB.

    So do we know what the little girl will be called?

    Congratulations on the birth of your daughter.

    tears of joy when young Reece scored the equalizer,even though I didn`t make it to the game this time nor see the goal on TV,it was at the exact moment my daughter was born.
    sounds like I would have loved the comeback even if going 4-1 down at home would have straightened out my usual pre-game float.

    I had high hopes for him when he signed but hard to tell how mentally strong a player is until he`s at your club and under the microscope.

    In the scenario you describe his Leipzig contact would end but the preagreed contract with us would then start.
    Think he'd turn us down however.

    One of the things that I really hope he drills into this group too is to not be afraid to shoot. We have plenty of players more than capable of shooting around the edge of the box - Willian, Pedro, Barkley, etc. Too often we try and overplay or struggle to break down a team defending deep.

    Welcome home Frankie & Jodie. The latter needs to be a good number 2 with our current situation but I don't see the same as others when they say this is a big risky hire. To me a foreign coach with no idea of what we have on our books besides our end of career players or more importantly as was reported about Sarri, an unwillingness to discover. Coupled with an experienced coach that forces his system on players that don't get the best out of them is more of a risk. 
    All come with a risk but I see this as the less risky option for us in our current situation.

    A lot of people are quick to forget about Christensen too as part of the academy group.
    The first step is they need to be trusted to be regular fixtures within the first team squad. For example the club needs to place faith in Reece James being good enough to challenge Azpi for the right back position, and therefore get rid of Zappacosta. I think if you consider within the squad then Mount and Abraham also have a very good chance of being integrated too. It's also possible that the club sells Zouma and if they did that then the fourth centre back spot needs to come from the academy too - Tomori, Clarke-Salter, Ampadu.
    Therefore there is a very good chance that seven academy products could be easily integrated into the squad next season. That doesn't mean chucking them into the first team immediately to see if they will sink or swim, they should be integrated slowly unless injuries/suspensions force them to be thrown in. 
    If some of these develop into first choice then that is fantastic, but its just as important that the club creates a foundation whereby the club develops its own squad players and no longer needs to buy. In turn this will allow us to focus on the highest possible quality for the starting XI when we can buy again, perhaps only needing to buy 2 or 3 rather than 6 or 7. 
    Until some of these players are afforded a chance we can't know if they'll be good enough or not. I would tend to agree with you that I don't know if Mount and Abraham are good enough yet, but amongst the first team and given chances next season you never know. I felt the same about RLC this time last year and many others did, now we're all begging he recovers fully from his injury and pinning our hopes on him to lock down a place in our midfield moving forward.

    Well if you ruled us out before last season, but we still finished top3 and with a trophy. Real life might just be a little more positive than your mind.

    Genuinely curious, are you ever in a positive mood?

    I will decide on whether he's a good signing when we know what Frank is doing with him.
    If he's going to play him LCM/CAM then he will be a waste. If he's going to be cover for Jorginho and Kante at DLP and RCM he will be a good signing. If Frank's going to a double pivot this could be a masterstroke, it plays to all of his major strengths and nullify's his weaknesses.

  23. manpe liked a post in a topic by Duppy Conqueror in 24. Reece James   
    Reece should be in the match day squad every time he`s fit.have been saying it for years that with 7 subs named we really should have atleast 2 youngsters on the bench every game..5 veterans is more than enough.the times we have been 3-0 up against the likes of West Brom and see the likes of Pedro or Willian coming on for the last 20 minutes would be far better giving some youngsters that time. and of course Reece can play atleast 2 different positions well.it would be very much on merit I`m sure.
    I don`t really care about what Lampard did as a player in regard to him becoming our next coach,i believe he will do the sensible things these stubborn and rigid puppet master coaches were too afraid to do.and that`s what I want for us.

    not being able to smoke a fag in the stadium messed with his head. after the Kepa incident I`m surprised he didn`t spark up there and then.
     
    result wise he did an o.k job...the thing that bugged me most was his statement he wouldn`t change his tactics till we perfected it..like why change if it`s perfected? adapt till you find a solution not keep trying something that isn`t working holding out hope someday it will..no plan B is pretty poor.
