  1. Excellent I hope he breaks through , I really do .
  2. I hope they enjoy the league and the lack of subscribers when their marquee players are Kevin De Bruyne and Joe Hart.
  3. Think you're right Dave , if this does come to fruition , I do hope we absolutely rinse them for every penny they have rather than accept a lesser amount and some hopeless reject we have no need for like James and especially Morata. We don't need another non scoring striker. If we're waving bye bye to Eden , let's secure the Monaco guy Mbappe (?) As a reasonable replacement with a few years ahead of him. The club must surely realise that we need to get our targets sorted sooner than later as City are going to throw truckloads of money at St Pep , Mourinho won't allow United to fall further from grace and will be backed by the media in any pursuit , Spurs will probably try to Hoover up any English players in the market and Arsenal will be linked with everyone and will surely need to break their self imposed transfer embargo sooner or later. It'll be an interesting summer.
  4. SKY absolutely willing it to happen , too anti Chelsea to realise that if players like Hazard leaves their brand is weakened.
  5. Didn't Courtois just say he wants to extend his contract and stated how much he loved the club recently? Eden doesn't strike me as the kind to put himself into the spotlight glare at a club like Madrid either , I think he likes the relative anonymity of being at Chelsea. Daily Mail saying they're offering James and Morata in part exchange , two players I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole and would be a step down regardless of how good they are on "FIFA".
  6. Arsenal. Usually to Man City.
  7. As an aside , barring the Chelsea side of last year , I don't think there's a team in World Football who win the ball back and then wait for the opposition to get back into position before they attempt attacking. Every team is a counter attacking team .
  8. I am quite old . (I certainly feel it )
  9. I got ten . Not bad
  10. Allardyce ! I wondered what managers style of football we were playing and it's Allardyce. Said no-one ever.
  11. Thankfully it's at home and although Palace have hit a bit of a hot streak recently they have the dubious distinction of winning 1-0 without actually registering a shot on goal in the entire game. Can't see them bring much of an attacking threat though unless someone manages to pick out Benteke in the exact spot he's standing in as he certainly won't move .
  12. I'm sure I read that the most common score line in football is 3-1 and it's due to the counter attack , one team takes the lead 1-0 , the other team strives to equalize gets caught on the counter 2-0 , the leading team relax a little seeing as they are 2-0 up , lose focus and 2-1 , the losing team , re-double their efforts to try and equalize and get caught again 3-1. I'm with MikelBlue , we generally look to score first and then try and sucker the other side in. Counter attacking football is fine , that great Ronaldo inspired United side did it all game long although it was portrayed in the media as a constant maelstrom of attacking football but what's new there?
  13. Excellent , another London derby , against a team of cloggers. Great. After another tedious international break. Super.
  14. It probably helps the style content when the flair players aren't consistently being launched into the stands by the opposition whilst the referee studiously ignores it.
