  1. 400+mins last season, 163mins over his PL career
  2. Stats can be very interesting; Tammy was 19 playing for the worst team in the league, Batshuayi has only played 1349 mins in the PL scoring a PL goal every 112 mins, and Giroud has played 12729 mins scoring a PL goal every 163mins. As for if he has started consecutive PL games, he started as our 1st choice forward after the World Cup despite scoring Zero! goals. Started against Cardiff, West Ham, Southampton & Liverpool, and managed 3 assists against you guessed it; Cardiff & Southampton. Didn’t score a league goal till Nov, and his other league goal was in April against Brighton. His exploits against mostly a bunch of farmers in the Europa league masked how appalling he was in the league. You can’t seriously be suggesting an over the hill forward averaging a PL goal every 400+mins should start.
  3. It’s more a case of competing with both Green & Caballero who were both 38. Not saying he was better than Caballero but I wouldn’t have bothered signing Green, and would have given Bulka a fair opportunity at competing for the 2nd role.
  4. Will happily take him on loan, or sign him permanently at £35m. Anything over and we should pass on him; apparently Madrid want £50m, and I can’t see Inter paying the asking fee for him. Madrid are also trying to get rid of Ceballos, who I rate higher but shame we have a ban in place. Problem with him is ideally he will be a backup for Kante & Jorginho, and I do think £50m is a steep price to pay for a backup. At that amount & the fat wages that come with, we will be stuck unable to upgrade that role in the summer. Even at £35m with good scouting we will probably find gems next summer around Europe.
  5. He has left already for PSG. Replace Caballero in a few years? He is going to be 38 at the start of the season. Think we handled Bulka badly personally. Made no sense keeping 2 37+ goalkeepers on our books last season considering how good he looked in preseason, and how little Caballero ended up playing.
  6. Has Giroud done enough to start? You keep referring to the Europa league final but keep forgetting he has scored 1 league goal in the 2nd half of the season against Brighton. Fun Fact Batshuayi equalled his total PL goals scored for us in 1.5yrs in 1/2 a season with Crystal Palace. We are definitely not keeping 3 forwards on our books this season even with 50 games, no club has 3 forwards (Liverpool only kept Sturridge as no one wanted to take on his wages). It will be interesting to see what Lamps decides to do, but with Hazard’s goals out of the equation we can’t afford to keep a No 9 who doesn’t score goals.
  7. Buffon has left, doubt they are going into the new season with Areola as their first choice. They are rumoured to be in for De Gea.
  8. Hell of an assist. His coach even remarked that he had improved a lot because he has been playing lots of games.
  9. We don’t need 3 forwards & most teams only have 2. Should a player with 5pl goals in 40 appearances in the last 1.5 seasons really be starting for us? That is a goal every 288mins (3+ games). Somehow we have exercised an extra year option, and we are paying £120k/w. That is madness! For me personally ban or no ban should have thanked him & wished him well at the end of this last season. For all this talk of teams being after him, they were Ligue 1 teams.
  10. Not getting fooled by Giroud’s exploits against mostly championship level teams in Europa, he is pants and shouldn’t be anywhere near starting for a team ambitious to remain in the top 4.

  12. Brilliant back heel assist for the Nigerian goal in today’s AFCON game. He has really grown as a player in the last year, and to think we sold him for half of Zappacosta 🤦‍♂️
  13. I think we need to be patient with our young talents and give them time. It involves taking the good and bad; and I would have Tammy start every game ahead of Giroud, the former will only get better. You see the prices Man Utd are being quoted for Wan Bissaka (allegedly £50m+) and you realise long term we will be better off. Arsenal had Gnabry on their books for a couple of years, and he ended up at Bayern last season. He has now being voted their Player of the Season at 23.
