  1. Great response from Sarri and the team in the last few minutes......get in
  2. Wow.......Alvaro is back
  3. Fair comment !! I've only got R5L commentary to go on here but sounds like we're not doing well.......and as I type this Morata scores
  4. All well and good but we are playing the Eagles today, not the bloody Seagulls
  5. Apparently now on some obscure channel called Quest which I believe is available on Freeview and Freesat. It's getting nigh on impossible to even watch highlights of most games in any competition these days.

    Bloody hell, it's a bad day for football fans. News is now breaking about the owner of Leicester Citys helicopter crashing shortly after take off from the stadium. Hoping for the best but the video doesn't look good. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-46006470

    Quite shocking news about Glenn Hoddle. Wishing him all the best. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46002170

    A new striker in January.

    A decent and regular goalscoring striker seems an often repeated conundrum at our club and it's quite baffling why. It's not as though we haven't thrown good money at it for goodness knows how many years. I hark back to the days of Dixon, Speedie, Durie, Wilson et al who would bang in goals left right and centre. I go back a lot further than that mind, but don't want to digress too far. Seriously though, it seems so often the case we buy a proven goalscorer and they then fall to sh*t. Fleck, Sutton, Scheva, Torres...the list goes on. The two options we have now are Morata and Giroud, both of whom were bench warmers at their previous clubs. Of the two I would say Giroud is the better option because he offers a bit more, and that's not saying a lot. As much as I would like to see Morata step up and succeed here it's just not happening is it ? He seems so weak both mentally and physically and regardless of the price we paid for him that's simply not good enough. Having got that off my chest I shall go back to my beer and celebrate the fact that we at least avoided re-signing Lukaku and we are still undeafeted. Onwards and upwards.

    Following Our Nearest & Dearest Rivals, 2018/2019

    How they have been allowed to get away with the switching of stadiums is something that really should be investigated. https://www.90min.com/posts/6148905-tottenham-announce-change-to-champions-league-schedule-following-stadium-delays So is their 'home ground' The new white hart lane, Wembley or Milton Keynes ?
  10. I agree the match threads can get a bit tedious at times but are you actually at the game tonight or just slagging other posters off from the comfort of your living room/keyboard etc ? Lets get a grip here. Folk are entitled to express an opinion on a forum.

    That's a very poor statement and indeed goes to show how little understanding there is of mental health conditions, not just in football but in the wider community as a whole. As someone who has battled depression for much of my life my I hope Lenny can get all the help he needs. I moved down to Hastings/St Leonards on Sea in 2015 and started to follow my local team, Hastings United. Lenny joined them in 2016, making a total of 35 appearances. I've only just caught up with this topic but it's been a great afternoons reading catching up on all our past players, so many memories right here.
  12. I get it that English is probably not your first language and make an allowance for that, but wtf are you on about ?
  13. I can only follow the live commentary on Talksport and they seem to have a different opinion to some of the posters on here. I'm also following the game on Redcafe and they are heaping praise on our performance so far.
