    Marketing... if we don't use our 'away' and '3rd strip' kit, no-one will buy them 😉

    Yes... Alonso's red boots don't go with the yellow strip and blue socks.

    Not 100% sure, but I suspect, given it's 6 months with an option to extend, that when the (initial 6 months) loan is over any extension will be a 'new' registration.

    Your reply has proven my point. When the teams led by JT fell behind we had more than 4 players capable of creating and scoring. Forget those in the front three positions... we have no-one outside of our primary attackers creating and/or scoring. "Leadership" or lack of is a pathetic excuse used to gloss over a lack of goal scorers and goal creators.

    Do you think if a leader like JT was still in the side we'd miraculously start scoring goals from midfield? Our main problem isn't lack of leadership, heart, character, belief, etc. Pure and simply it's a lack of players who can create and finish!

    I think that the period a loan player is registered to a club is, simply, the period of the loan. If it's 6 months with option to extend, then the registration is for 6 months. Extending the loan requires re-registering. I may be wrong, but that seems to be the obvious way of doing things.

    To score from a corner, the ball must first of all get beyond the first defender! 😉😉😉
  8. New Stadium Plans

    The construction sector is in a dip at the moment as the price of labour and raw materials increases (and raw material costs will only increase further if Brexit goes ahead and we start off by only trading on WTO base tariffs) whilst credit restrictions may hamper some projects. From a purely financial point of view, it's currently not worth starting to build the new stadium. Add to that the owner's visa problems and you have to wonder why he would ever bother pouring money into such a project.

    He may well be, but what we need is a master, not a student!

    There's taking a risk, and then there's downright stupidity... our strategy against City was beyond 'risky', even if some of the goals came as a result of individual mistakes. A less gung-ho attitude would have had other players in positions were they would/should have provided cover. It was almost as if, to use a roulette analogy, having always bet £5 on black, Sarri, tired of hearing that he was too predictable, suddenly placed all his money on 0. Regarding starting line-ups, while in general I agree that Hudson-Odoi is, rightly, 4th in the pecking order, he does offer that little bit of something different from the other three. It might not be such a bad idea to occasionally start him in games. We play so narrow whereas he does tend to stick to the touchline far more than Willian, Pedro and Hazard. We needed to stretch Wolves but never did. Let him keep crossing balls into an empty box... eventually our other players will cotton on and get further forward.

    Drinkwater... so good you named him twice? 😉 😉 😉

    As I understood it, FIFA expect the hearing to take place BEFORE the summer window opens. If found guilty, the ban starts with immediate effect (subject to us appealing via CAS).

    Interesting substitutions. Earlier in the season Sarri would have gone for the 'safer' options of Barkley for Kovatic and Willian for Pedro. As for Willian for Jorginho and going 4-2-3-1, I don't think anyone expected that! However, 'interesting' substitutions aside, we were still for the most part ponderous in thought and action. Is that down to the players? Is that down to Sarri? Lucky to get the point, because we really didn't deserve it.
