  1. Are you aware Pullsic was on a yellow card and had been kicked blue and black that he could barely walk off the pitch when substituted? we were more offensive immediately the changes were made anyway.
  2. Mike Emenalo: As a Nigeria international capped 14 times by his country, Michael Emenalo faced Diego Maradona when their countries met at the 1994 World Cup, but it was an encounter after the game that sticks in his mind. Emenalo was selected with Maradona to undergo the mandatory doping test following the 2-1 win for Argentina in Foxborough, Massachusetts. It was the test that would discover the banned stimulant ephedrine in Maradona’s system, ending his World Cup and his 17-year international career. “I was sat in the corridor with him a
  3. so what do you say to 3-0 and West Ham coming back. Not saying Lampard is a complete manager but there is no magic wand out there and the gulf has been closed by the lesser teams. If Lampard had lost 6-1 and bottled a 3-0 lead all guns would be out blazing. This is the same Spurs that probably have a better balanced side and a defensive minded, world class manager. Moral: support your team and hope the players turn up on the day. The grass is always greener on the other side. By the way, the clamour for Poch is laughable.
  4. what do you want the manager to do, these players have come in and changed the games at times, you are as good as the tools you have. I was actually shocked when people here slated FL for not starting Pulisic against Liverpool, there are players that are impact players, Ole hardly ever started in his days at United but is still deemed a great striker. Pulisic starts the next match and bam poor outing, starts the next and is injured. we are building a new team and we need patience and understand that on the day your players can let you down. We lost to the best striker on the the day, would hav
  5. what do you expect with 2 injuries and 3 players on yellow cards?
  6. you lot were pleading for him to come in for Mount, he's been so poor since he got back from injury. Mount you can't fault his commitment and he scores goals, not a lot from Cho apart from pulling his shorts down
  7. I always rated him and believe he would deliver. critics believe shelling out guarantees success, but we have seen Sutton Shevshenko, Falcao, Torres, Morata and Hiquan in the past. Giroud, Morata and Hiquain between them scored 12 premiership goals last season and we are finding it difficult to appreciate this poacher?
  8. like Drogba and Costa did? how many top strikers have we had that scored hat trick against all the top 6? some strange targets there. its no coincidence that our highest that our highest score lines have been against sides like Wigan, Vill and Sunderland, when we had Drogba, Anelka, Malouda, Kalou and Sturbridge. Give this boy a chance and enjoy the transition. he's already scored more EPL goals than Morata, Hiquan and Giroud individually did last season and we are in September.
  9. cost us what? Tammy bearing injury would score more than Morata, Hiquain and Giroud scored in the EPL last season (12). Tammy is our best striker at the moment, he has an opportunity to improve and become a top striker, the least we fans can do is be positive and encourage him. we can't buy a new striker, we have Michy and Giroud as options, common.
  10. I sometimes wonder what some fans smoke, for many years we've longed for a manager that will give the kids a chance. Tammy will come good if he gets enough opportunities this season, he would probably score more goals in League than Morata and Higuain did last season. This is a transitional season and we should encourage and back the boys, if we get it right we have striker for the next 8-10 Years. Hitting the woodwork against Man U on Sunday and keeping us in the game against Liverpool is a good start. watch the goals fly in but 1st the crosses.
  11. most of you made his life difficult, hope we don't regret this. It is mad to complain as much and kick the guy around in his 1st season, like Mourinho said about Drogba's signing 'judge him when he leaves'. this guy could have built something great here. he stabilised the club, no drama like Jose and to a less extent Conte. I saw every game at home and a few away, first 10 games were good, then like all marathons, blips and turns but we came 3rd, lost on penalty to the treble champions in the c cup and won the Europa. How many of those players would Juve, Real and Barcelona come knocking for?
  12. You are as good as what is in front of you, with the return of Morata 5, Higuain 5 and Giroud 2 it was a miracle we came 3rd but winning Europa and Carobo finals confirm it wasn't a fluke.
  13. The fans made his stay hell, he's proved himself, playing his own way. I have always sympathised with him here, Sarri came weeks into the season, new country, didn't speak the language, inherited a comparatively poor team that came 5th. I know it was frustrating at times but apart from City and Pool, all the other clubs would wish they had the season we just had. with a squad that only 2 of the players can walk into other clubs in top 6, the fans expected too much too soon. He hasn't left the club worse off and would have been sacked if Wembley didn't go to penalties or if he lost in Baku. Its
  14. maybe I will skip Istanbul to give the team good luck , was in Monaco when Falcao demolished us and Prague when we lost to Bayern
  15. what a night, great support from the travelling fans. Thomas Cook got it spot on with the logistics:
  16. one clip is not enough to judge a player, he looked fragile while here. he can come for preseason but to conclude with a10 seconds shine will be absurd.
  17. The only easy bit in this process was the visa, got it sorted online and issued in 3 hours. Baku would not have made it to my 1000 list of places to visit, awaiting flight time and departure airport from TC but it would be direct flights. will send pictures and video
  18. absolutely, Ive been saying this at the games
  19. when your time is up, it's up. Gary was not the best CB I have seen at the Bridge, but he was honest and when he made mistakes he apologised immediately. He was lucky to have got his move from Bolton when he did, luckier to play side by side JT who covered for him a lot. It was coming, even Conte would have dropped him, he had an opportunity in the match against Derby and omg, it wasn't a game to remember. Will love him for those headed goals, spirit and honesty. we wish him the very best.
  20. if we had scored more goals, we couldn't have conceded more than we did. its all about cover for the defence, some cried at the sale of Matic but are they better? this is a team in transition with at least 3 forwards that are not good at tracking back and Jorginho that has been weak defensively since the Tottenham loss. William, Higuan/Giroud and Hazard offer little or nothing when we are defending, which we are most of the time, Hazard can be excused but a team like Chelsea can't afford the luxury of so many weak defensively players, you can throw Odion into that category as well.
  21. We need the ban to force it to happen, remember this is Sarri's first season if he gets it wrong he gets the sack.
  22. We are not even at all our attack reads: Hazard 16, Morata 5, Higuain 5, Giroud 2 compare the 3 strikers we have to Kane and Song.At best Giroud would compete with Llorente Likewise Ericsson and Jorginho, Danny Rose and Alonso/Emerson, Tippier and Cesar
