    Firmly expect Lampard to get the sack. If it is going to happen, then the time for that is now. As in right now. 

    Hate to say it, but I'm with you on this one. He looks and sounds clueless. The results and performances are simply unacceptable.  Yes, we had a great run for a while, but the drop off has been sad and dramatic. I can't see Roman waiting too long, tbh.

    Whilst I agree more or less with the overall opinions in fairness it was not a tap on the ankle as I remember it...not looked again so just may be wrong.....he went into a nasty premeditated whack from Grealish...anyone who has played will confirm that even with shin pads the short term pain is not pleasant and enough to cause thought for reflection!

    Spot on. About the injury, and about Grealish.

    The real question is how long will Grealish be given carte blanche to do similar cheating week in week out?

    Right up until we sign him, would be a fair guess...........:).

    I’m not a fan of Tuchel but wasn’t he strongly linked to us before Sarri?

    By the media. Enough said.

    I seem to remember reports saying he had meetings with Marina and the board being open to him.

    There are always 'reports'. Marina and the Board don't talk to the press, so it was the usual meaningless guesswork, and little else.

    I think I'm always surprised how managers/coaches who get sacked for not succeeding at their jobs..for whatever reason...are inevitably touted/offered jobs to replace other managers who's jobs are at risk who in turn get touted/offered jobs etc......

    Tbh, it happens way too often to be surprising. Unlimited demand; limited available talent. Clubs desperate to gain any perceived advantage, and always ready to panic. Never been much different from what I've seen.

     


  5. Two great posts. However, could we ask that members who want to refer to posts like that (that length) snip them, and don't re-post the whole thing over again? It just uses band width unnecessarily. We've all read them after all, and once is fine. Thanks, and Merry Christmas to all!.

    Sorry MT...could have put it better....some of the "discussions" have lost all "charm"...what I tried to say is instead of some of the sublime humour  and insightful posts that appear on here there seems to be bitter trading of obscure points and nastiness.....I understand some folks love to mix it in arguments and that's all well and good but so many valuable points get buried under harsh words....I am no shy wallflower afraid of my shadow but I prefer to keep my aggression for ,hopefully never, real threats....

    Ah, got you!

    Yes mate, there's a fair bit of that atm. Generally comes from a couple of obvious places, I'm afraid. We will deal with it though, if it gets too out of hand. As it is, I think that the vast majority on here are good people who just want to express an opinion about their favourite football team. Long may that survive and prosper!

    In the meantime I suggest you stick to what you understand

    Actually not a bad post until this last line. Why was this rudeness  necessary? Does it make you feel good about yourself? You need to stop this rubbish before I stop it for you.

    There was no "coaching".  Just the players worked out for themselves where Zouma was running to.  And pretty soon Zouma and others ran in with a lot more conviction.  It was a light switch moment.  There for everyone to see.

    And you'd know this how exactly? At Cobham watching it all unfold? Listening to Frank and his coaches issue instructions? I'm not sure why you clearly have a problem with SFL, but it's become boring and predictable (not to mention, quite silly).
