  1. Well yes, I don't think anyone, pro or anti Jose can say he isn't a hypocrite, far to many very obvious example to argue otherwise.
  2. Exactly. Is it not plausible Jose has been saying it to Shaw every day at Training without effect and so gone public - which appear to have yielded results? I know it's fashionable to call Jose the Antichrist now but when Balotelli is used as an example of a unfairly treated scapegoat you really need to end the discussion there.
  3. I may be wrong but I seem to remember a lot of games going on general sale which almost never happened during my time going to the Bridge, especially in the Roman years. These games may have gone on to sell out but I thought there was a noticeable change in usual appetite from STH/members.
  4. I actually thought Bellerin fouled Costa in the header that came off the bar, made no attempt to play the ball or win the challenge and pushed Diego off balance
  5. Speed and coverage are two of the biggest things you'd credit Pedro for, plus he's bang in form at the moment...
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. totally forgot about that 'reduced role' Nobbly! good shout
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
