  1. Appreciated Martin. And really , we have a bit of back and forth on this subject but I'm sure we agree on many things, its just this is dominating. Please don't think I got the knock with you and threw my rattle out, I'm genuinely upset ( a bit like Jane) at the current situation and I need a break. But I am a bit hopeful of Tuchel. Don't know why coz we have been there before. I'll be cheering them on in a minute...just realised kick off time!! Yikes! C'mon the blues!
  2. I've exited stage left and I've huffed off ( apart from this). A few months off and I'll be back to welcome whoever takes over from Tuchel!
  3. Thanks Jane. I'll be back. I also need lockdown time to hone my new animal impersonations. Its driving Mrs N mad and she is starting to nag me especially when I start practising my new flamingo impersonation. Not sure what to do I suppose I'll just have to put my foot down.
  4. Like most on here I have been swotting up on the new coach, someone I knew almost nothing about. The fact he got the push from PSG means nothing as that is a club weirder than even us. In fact this man may have something to prove. He seems dedicated, hard working, doesn't smoke 40 a day, but has a crazy side which will serve him well here. I also like the fact that he is a very technical coach and not afraid to juggle the team and juggle the formations. He speaks good English as you would expect from a German. This doesn't sound like Sarri Mark 2, which is a bonus. IMO Frank was too timid in the end with his formation. It was like he was on a hamster wheel and couldn't get off. With all the new recruits, the squad was bloated. He was left with too many players probably getting grumpy about not playing. A proper close season and a more ordinary world would have helped shift some players on to other clubs. But it is what it is. I can only hope our fantastic young prospects still get a chance. Sometimes you need a break from this place and now seems a good time for me. If the little shitweasles at the club suddenly jump into action and starts running around like two year olds, or we see a smile actually crack onto Havertz face , I'll just get peed off. If nothing changes and we limp along until the end of the season , I will again be peed off . I will have nothing constructive to add to the conversation and just end up arguing all the time. Also the treatment of Lampard has upset me . I thought the club had made a major change in its policy when hiring Frank. I thought they wanted someone with a strong connection to the club who regardless of his inexperience, they would back to the hilt while he learnt on the job. What happened was, he hit a bump in the road and they sacked him. A little bit of the blue light has dimmed in me and I've lost a bit of love for my boyhood club. It will come back I'm usually does. Next season maybe I will have fresh eyes, a spring in my step and my hat back at a jaunty angle once more! But I will still be cheering on Tuchel and of course the boys. Roman must be able to make his tough decisions. Friends and foes keep safe.

    Mate believe what you will ...I am not stopping you. Likewise I will have an open mind to stuff from media outlets with good connections . Doesn't mean its all true and it doesn't mean its all bollox. Maybe the truth is somewhere in between. I'm kinda done here for the moment if I'm honest. The blue light is dimming.

    I don't have their phone numbers and if I did they would probably not speak to me so I have no idea " exactly" what they have done. But Matt Law of the Telegraph ( who has been on this story for a while) claims that Rudiger, Jorginho and Alonso were all up for sale in the summer. The numbers of player staff was bloated in Lampards opinion. Buyers could not be found for these players so they stayed with the club. Rudiger in particular was not even on the bench and was very unhappy. There was apparently resentment from certain senior players about what they perceived as Lampards preferential treatment of the academy players . These are Matt Laws words and as he is a respected journo with the Telegraph a lot of other media outlets went with it. To date Rudiger has left no message about Lampards departure and Aspi has made no direct comment about the fight claims. He left 3 blue hearts on Tammys Twitter page and a picture of him in the aftermath of scoring . He's running away and Rudiger is chasing him. Both look happy. No idea when this pic was taken.

    I saw the blue hearts. If Dave had fisty cuffs with anyone he's probably mortified he let it get to that. Any smoothing of the water is probably welcomed. What 3 blue hearts isn't, is Dave making a statement on his social media saying these claims are false and damaging to the club and players in question. So I'm presuming the blue hearts were in support of Tammy. If he puts blue hearts on Rudigers Twitter page I'll come to a presumtion about that too.

    I could equally ask the question " why wouldn't it be anything else". I assume you noticed the form suddenly fall of a cliff 6 weeks ago for no apparent reason apart from the standard 'Lampards crapp'.

    Well apart from Christenson ( who was an academy player and got his chance at this club) all those other players were mentioned in the articles I have read. Exactly those players. So by your own words, it does make more sense.

    I'm not believing anything or making excuses. I am commenting on media reports. Is that ok with you? Should I be censored for discussing it or do you have proof that its nonsense? And you didn't answer my question. Do you think it strange that Dave hadn't come straight out and said this bollox. This is verging on libelous. The Captain of our club having a physical fight with a team mate. I'd just like some clarification from our skipper ( maybe its out there this morning).
  11. Khobar's Legacy

    Khobars Legacy seems an appropriate title. Count me in.

    But Dave is not backwards in coming forwards. These reports have been about all day. If not true it is a terrible slight on Rudigers character ( and other players) so why didn't Dave come straight out and say this is nonsense , its lies, there are zero issues and we get on fine. I can think of a reason tbh.

    Well it could be rubbish. We all know that. But Tammy coming out and saying its nonsense doesn't really cut it for me. How about our club captain .... the other alleged person in the fight coming on social media and saying its nonsense. That would help wouldn't it?
  14. You realise that went over everyone's head. You're very underrated Ham!
