  1. Yeah I said in another thread I can see him being a shoe in for Arsenal this summer.
  2. Isak and Odegaard did pretty well at Sociedad together plus Juve want to sell his international team mate Kuluveski. Get them two plus somebody like Svanberg as a squad CM and be every Scandinavian chick's favourite football club.
  3. The most talented player they could realistically get to play that role.
  4. Juventus do need another striker given how injury prone and wantaway both Dybala and Morata are. I thought they'd end up with Sassuolo bloke in all honesty. Scammaca? Given the size of the fee I wonder if there's any truth in the rumour Kuluveski may be off.
  5. If we were to go down in the next two to three seasons it would be naive to assume its because we didnt keep Cahill, McCarthy and Roy Ball.
  6. You're surely not being serious? The changes in the last 12 months have been radical in almost every department.
  7. They're putting games on the 15th and 16th of February. They just haven't officially announced them yet. Manchester United are one of the teams that will be playing.
  8. I remember they went through a phase where the ex-Brentford bloke Andy Scott was there and people were praising the signings. He left just before the FA Cup final.
  9. It would be great to see Blackburn back in the Premier League. Great kits, great fans, great Gamst Pedersen. Overall a great club.
  10. From memory the approach came after they pointed to research that suggested a coaching regime would have its most successful period within the first nine months. Its not an approach I'd want my club to take but if its bought them relative success as you've pointed out let them crack on with it.
  11. I really rate him from what I've seen this season and his ceiling could be a top six club. It would take a period of adapting given Fulham play a possession based 4-2-3-1 and he naturally drifts in to the number 10 role even if he's out wide but I was impressed with how Harvey Elliot adapted his game to be a CM that drifted out right to link up Trent and Salah before his injury.
  12. Seems like the perfect Burnley player for when they lose Tarkowski.
  13. Just watched the third episode... Francesca is head and shoulders above everybody else at the minute. The girls on the losing team got really exposed in that task. Navid was a cert to go really. When people don't trust you to do anything after three weeks you're in big trouble.
  14. It's pretty well known his preferred move is Juventus.
  15. Ive seen worse on Monday Night Raw.
  16. What's the background to the Dana White story? Still contracts?
  17. On a completely unrelated note I never knew it was a phase in Liverpool at the minute to have your teeth really whitened. Every male that travelled by coach under 30 today seemed to have these big, straight, immaculate white teeth.
  18. If anything sums up Everton's recruitment in recent years it's definitely Iwobi coming on for Nigeria's biggest goal threat Kalechi Iheanacho today and getting sent off four minutes later. Amazing that he still looks bad even at AFCON.
  19. Ive had the benefit of television angles now... Firmino was definitely offside as he impacted the play. Ox wouldn't have been given the freedom of South London if Firmino hadn't drawn Mitchell away from him. I'm not sure you could say the same thing about the Palace goal. The penalty decision as everybody's covered was absolutely atrocious. Kevin Friend had a mare today but he was hang out to dry by VAR as the freeze frame begins at the point of contact. Craig Pawson in the VAR booth has once again just shown why he's an absolute abomination to the sport. Overall though we were absolutely overrun and naive in the first half hour but we were good in the second half. It was just a game ruined by the officials which is very frustrating. The Olise head injury where Friend waited for Liverpool to lose the ball, the Benteke 'offside', you could even put a case that our goal shouldn't have counted. For a referee that's been in this league for 12 years Kevin Friend definitely doesn't inspire confidence.
  20. Yes. He got in with Corinthians in 2004 and then his company MSI expanded to other South American talent (Mascherano, Carlos Alberto etc). The expansion plan sounded similar to how Raiola has now taken a lot of Eredevise talent and Mendes with Portugal (the difference being Kia had it written in contracts hed have control over transfers whilst the others seem like more of a verbal agreement). It all went South with Corinthians though and they ended up getting relegated.
  21. Terry Silver makes it more enjoyable the more he gets involved.
