    Football Pundits

    BT is awful in general, the coverage of the final the other night was terrible, more adverts than analysis. Overall, their pundits are mostly poor, hate the matey "Fletch and Macca" stuff, Jake Humphrey an awful presenter. I'm not even sure it's entirely the pundits fault, think it's BT Sport...

    Season Review ~ Manager

    On Ole's in-game management and subs, I understand the frustration but I don't think he's helped by a lack of genuine options. I've often been frustrated by how long it takes him to make a change despite it being obviously needed but when you look back at that game v Southampton when we drew 2-2...

    Sergio Reguilon

    Same thing happens with every academy player from some sections of the fanbase. They start very well and there's a lot of hype from them and then they hit a wall and it goes the opposite way. A lack of understanding in player development.

    Henderson signs new deal | Loan to Sheffield United for 19/20

    Reports that he's signed another new deal worth 100k a week. Big money for a keeper that probably won't be first choice right away and maybe never. Seems likely Romero will leave, he's had and continues to have trouble with his knee apparently which might be the reason we haven't been...

    Sergio Reguilon

    Laird played left back for the U23s at 16/17 years old. Williams was moved to LB at U18 level by McKenna because of Laird. Laird considered a much better prospect in the long term but Williams was more ready to play first team football this season both physically and mentally. Having watched...

    Season Review - Full Backs

    In attack, I felt Wan-Bissaka improved as time went on but think he struggled overall recently due to the amount of games he was required to play like many others. A good first season but more needed from him at both ends of the pitch next season. It was noticable how teams were happy to allow...

    Season Review - Central Defenders

    I think Maguire would be great with a partner who has the qualities that he doesn't, pace is the big issue and Lindelof doesn't have it either, I think he's looked better alongside Bailly but his injury record means he hasn't been available or able to play regularly when he is available. Thought...

    Sheffield Utd move for Aaron Ramsdale

    Seems Henderson will be back with us next season and reckons he can displace De Gea quickly. Big fan of his confidence. Talk that Romero really struggling with his knee so may be offloaded or maybe needs surgery to make way. Seen a rumour that Bielsa wants Romero at Leeds too.

    Champions League 19/20 Draw

    Werner would be sick as a pig if Leipzig go and win it. "What must Timo Werner be thinking? With the greatest respect, who cares?" haa

    Champions League 19/20 Draw

    That was glorious. Lyon didn't get the credit they deserved for that, they were superb. Aouar is some player, at 22. Defensively, I am again impressed by Denayer, City will be looking at him after tonight as another that got away. Will be interesting to see if we do eventually move for Dembele...

    Champions League 19/20 Draw

    City's trophy to lose if Barca beat Bayern tomorrow.

    Fantasy Premier League Draft

    Already in a draft league so will probably give this a miss but draft is much better than regular fantasy football in my opinion.

    How long do we give Solskjaer?

    Unlike any other manager since Fergie, Ole has given the board real reason to back him in the transfer market this summer, finished in a good position, the performances of the team much improved and his signings so far have been successful and fitting the profile of player the club want. I do...

    Bruno Fernandes | Match Discussion thread 2019/20

    One of the fittest players in the league. Apart from Brugge away, he started every game since he joined including 120 minutes v Norwich, and was on to play 90 minutes for the 4th game in a row until he got taken off late on against Leicester. He wouldn't be playing so many minutes if the data...
