  1. 11. Timo Werner

    Huge overreaction. if his confidence was at an all time low, he would not have done that run that started from his own half that assisted Abraham against Newcastle. He is not low on confidence. He has made some poor decisions in final third but he is still contributing. This will be put to bed next time he scores.
  2. Rennes - Chelsea

    But priority also needs to be getting top. We can get far in this if we avoid likes of Bayern. Difference between first and second spot will be massive.
  3. 19. Mason Mount

    So if I am correct, Mount along with Grealish are the only England player to start all 3 games for England in the international break? Good for him but for our sake's was hoping he would be left out tonight
  4. 21. Ben Chilwell

    Chilwell shaked his head. He wanted to continue, however felt discomfort and when he was walking off you could see him saying he was unable to continue. Hopefully not. I remember Hazard had a back issue couple years back and he missed a week and a few days but was back within a fortnight. Hopefully it is just that. I would be more concerned if it was a lower body injury though, so hopefully he is back for weekend.
  5. 24. Reece James

    Same thing happened with Vida for Croatia, albeit he played less minutes. Ireland have said the rest of squad will still travel for the Uefa Nations games, so should not affect any England players at all.
  6. 24. Reece James

    You give me a heart attack. Any time I see something posted on one of our players on international duty, I dread it may be an injury. Whew.
  7. Super Frank Thread

    Yep, so did 19 other teams also, however we bought so many new players who have never played before so it was not surprising that the team looked a bit lost, the first few games. We bought more players than most teams so to get that understanding was going to take time, due to lack of pre-season.
  8. The English Football Thread

    Yeah, agreed tbh. I am not really a fan of Lacazatte. He has dropped off hugely, however he scored like what 3 league games in a row for them and then was suddenly benched against Sheffield United in the league and did not even come on. Also apart from Fulham and United, their other 2 wins in the league, they have been so unconvincing. West Ham should have got something out that game and Sheffield United arguably should have too. Saliba was bought for £27m and has not even been given a chance. Imagine if this was Emery, the stick he would be getting... Sometimes sticking to a winning team can be good, but sometimes it can work the complete opposite and when I saw they put the same team they played against United against Villa, I was already licking my lips. There was no creativity and it was the wrong move. It is almost like they paid Villa too much respect. Auba scored many goals from the wing last season but apart from the second half where he puts Auba up front, he never starts Auba from the beginning up front and it baffles me. Nkeitah and Lacazette are just not good enough to be starting as their main CF and Auba needs to be given a run of games there. I still wouldnt be surprised if he ends up around 20 goals or so come end of season. Martinez, is not a bad sell tbh. I know a lot of fans maybe would have said keep Martinez instead of Leno but with them looking to generate funds, it made no sense having a keeper who they could get that amount of money for on the bench, if they could invest in other areas of the team but for me Martinez looks more complete than Leno, but I understand why they sold him for money they received. I remember when Emery first came and there was so much hype about him, then suddenly hype goes off and flaws are recognized. Seems a story of de-ja-vu albeit Arteta is getting a lot more patience than Emery and been forgiven for some ludicrous decisions.
  9. Willian

    That Arsenal fan was being sarcastic btw.
  10. The English Football Thread

    I mean let's face it if he had any ambition, he would not have signed that contract, but money speaks, I can't see how Auba is content to play LW every game. This season he just looks like, 'fuck it, I got my paycheck, why bother'. Today is not the only game he has been limited to no shots on goal.
  11. The English Football Thread

    Nope. They have always more or less played with Aubemyang left wing and Lacazette up front. Initial stages of last season yes, but 3/4 of last season, Aubemeyang has usually started primarily on the LW.
  12. The English Football Thread

    Strangely enough, he has been playing there for Arsenal for majority of the time since he arrived. He managed to score an abundance from that position last season but this season just not up to it. Lacazzette is regressing badly and I think they need to go with Aubameyang up front more.
  13. Ross Barkley

    Been brilliant today and couldnt of come against a more convenient team
  14. 22. Hakim Ziyech

    He has been hauled off again today and seems a lot of their fans are getting really frustrated with him. Although I always liked him, it seems a bit of de-ja-vu of lack of end product.
  15. 22. Hakim Ziyech

    I was always a fan of Willian despite his lack of goals/assists, however what frustrated me was that after that 1 game he had against Fulham (worst team in the league at the time) where he made 2 assists, all pundits were stating what were we thinking letting him go. Since that he has not produced 1 goal or 1 assist and his performances have been absolute shit. I think pundits are forgetting that if we kept him, we would have had to offer him a three year deal. Actually Souness and others were saying we should have. I don't know what planet they are on but giving a 32 year old a three year contract where he would of wanted huge wages, is just not feasible. Who is he getting ahead of? Pulisic, Havertz, Ziyech? None of them. I would love to see their angle on this now.
