  1. Just a bad day at the office, that's all. Spurs were surprisingly composed I thought, even when they scored they didn't celebrate OTT. Can't think of anyone who had a decent game to be honest. Timing of their goals killed us. Still top of the league so no need to panic.
  2. Always thought he was more than capable of filling that backup winger role in the squad, especially when compared to those players we've signed since (Salah and Cuadrado being the main examples), especially when you consider he is home grown, association trained or whatever it is. That said, he didn't pull up any trees whilst out on loan so I think his performances this season have come as a little surprise to everyone. As someone else mentioned, he had been doing ok prior to the switch to 3-4-3 too.
  3. Think he's been really steady in his cameos. Has tried to do too much, and appears to be just keeping it simple, breaking up play where required and generally proving himself dependable. Exactly what he needs to do to curry favour.
  4. I don't agree Droy. Jose knew exactly what he was doing by not covering his mouth with his hand - as everyone seems to do nowadays. He wanted to make it a story. I'm a Jose fan but he has always been pretty blatant at contracting himself as Exiled mentions above.
  5. Did what he needed to do well against United (aside from that early Herrera shot he could have done a little better with), also nice to see his passion going to the crowd after one of the goals too. Still not sold on him, but maybe these few results are showing an upturn in confidence.
  6. I read somewhere that a section of Liverpool fans were polled (it may even have been Hillsborough families) and they were overwhelmingly in favour, which was quite refreshing.
  7. Well the Club released a statement on the website to say that they were still on scheduled. Though I believe the schedule was to start work during the close season just gone so who knows.
  8. totally forgot about that 'reduced role' Nobbly! good shout
  9. Indeed, I think people are basing his inclusion in the squad on the basis of one game 2 years ago, not the subsequent failed loans since.
  10. We have much bigger things to think about than replacing Willian. Glad he's signed on for another 4 years. He started to work on his attacking output last season, let's hope it continues.
  11. Quite excited by this signing, eager to see what he can do for us.
  12. Thanks for the info Pete. Considering those numbers it's a reasonable amount that's been raised so far. I guess another factor is that I would imagine there's a lot less traffic on the site during the off season. Fingers crossed either way
  13. How many unique posters have donated? I've only just read this thread and it's been up for a few days. I would subscribe to a £few/month donation to keep the site going and will donate in the next few days.
  14. Won't let that go will you? Do you mean you would not employ him on any basis because of the accident? I think it's a simple bridge between the new Manager and the players/fans. Carlo was well liked and respected here, so think it would work out. Unlike Zenden being Fat Rafa's no 2 which really missed the mark.
  15. I've always found it strange reading stories of Clubs offering their players to another Club. Make it known in circles that they would welcome offers sure, but always get the image of officials knocking on the door of Madrid/whoever and saying 'excuse me sir, do you want to buy our player' randomly out of the blue. That wasn't a challenge to what you posted Bob, just the scenario. RE Pedro, I had really high hopes for him last season, thought he would be one of the signings of the summer. It hasn't gone quite as expected but then again I would imagine he would have performed better if the team in general had. Hope he stays this season and settles in a bit more
