  1. Need to put their back 4 under some pressure. Watching game in a Nubian village (Egypt) Salah mania out here unsurprisingly
  2. Heavy as in 'David Unsworth' heavy?
  3. Gary Cahill should be dropped

    Always fearful when opening such negative threads.....wasn't disappointed....absolutely pointless. Give GC a break please .... And OP, I think your warm milk is ready.
  4. And Huddersfield beat Utd.....not too shabby a day after all.
  5. Classic rope a dope...draw them in for 70 mins and then biff-baff-doof... Conte Bomaye! Conte Bomaye!
  6. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    So now there are reports that various factions are complaining about Conte's training regime and methods being too hard and contributing to our injury backlog. Seems to go against the message from the playing staff that we need to 'work, work, work' to sort out our problems. Notwithstanding I fear the cycle of disruption is beginning to repeat itself irrespective of whether there is any truth to the rumours. Once you begin to openly criticise and report the way someone is doing their job then its downhill from there. Perhaps Carlo is the right man for the job. Rumours there were that the Bayern players organised their own training sessions as they felt they weren't being worked hard enough.
  7. Shocking start...Townsend doing whatever he wants.
  8. Wednesday's performance was outstanding and the effort and preparation required to pull it off clearly took its toll. Some players were clearly not at their best and losing Morata changed the gameplan. We didn't appear to have a decent Plan B and I was a surprised by that seeing as Conte is obviously a great tactician and in my opinion a match for Pep. Perhaps just not enough time to do the necessary to prepare for both games in enough detail. Must admit that I was a bit surprised the we lined up for both very different styles with basically the same setup and appeared to just hope it was going to work twice. Was expecting something different like maybe a shift to a defensive four since it was clear our fullbacks weren't going to be able to bomb forward and we weren't setup for that. Yep we defended well, and don't get me wrong, thought Christensen and Rudiger came through it well but we were always going to have enough back there to cope with most of what they could throw. Hate to say it, but I tend to agree with 'Slippy Steve' in that our setup paid them too much respect. Maybe we missed Luiz's forward thinking instincts more than we think. I also think that this would have a great game for Drinkwater, so unlucky there. Basically Conte was out thought and we were a bit leggy but plenty of time to turn the tables. I don't think its doom and gloom at all. Okay we probably won't win everything but I can see us having a decent run in the CL and will be in the top 3 or 4 fighting it out I'm sure. City are eminently beatable and I look forward to us having another crack at them.
  9. For whom these forums exist? Not sure my footballing qualifications can justifiably classify me as anything else. (Do most of my criticising from the chaise lounge these days...guess that still counts)
  10. HYPERBOLLOX more like... Try being a bit more considered
  11. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    Not helping his cause is Diego Whilst sunning himself in Tobago Dining daily on Goat Six Eggs and a Stoat He's now stuck inside his Gold Winnabago
  12. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    Doubtless I'm being naive but having him available and prepared to do a job, even until Jan would give us so many more options. He's still got a WC squad place to play for surely. Firmly believe the situation is redeemable even for a short term....he may be a complete twat with Feijoadas for brains but for the moment he's still our twat.
  13. Deadline Day Drama

    I heard it was £92M + £1
  14. Deadline Day Drama

    Basically don't bet on Chelsea signing anyone today.....sigh!
  15. Deadline Day Drama

    I'm seeing Barca at 5/1 still .... should I take it?
