  1. He's 18 FFS! He's had a handful of games. He is improving - Pedro & Willian are declining. That's a FACT.
  2. But it's what we've always argued about in the past. If you play attacking football where you get plenty of men forward with lots of shots on goal, you'll get lucky now & again. Look at when we had Lamps and the number of deflected goals he bagged - it's because he took so many shots. Bit like the lucky one Messi scored against De Gea the other night. Same as winning more penalties - you have men running into the opponents box you will win more pens. It's not gonna happen if you're passing the ball about the centre circle for the majority of the game!!
  3. Can't agree there to be honest. I'm a firm believer that luck evens itself out over a period of time - all swings & roundabouts! If we fail to make top 4 it will be because we haven't been good enough - simple as that.
  4. Think All neutrals want to see Ajax lift the trophy. As much as I want to see Ajax beat Spurs and then beat The Dippers in the final, I do fear Liverpool could beat them. So I just hope in the Barca v Liverpool tie that Messi is unplayable and Suarez & Coutinho play well against their former club and put them out. My fear is their defence looks poor and Liverpool will score goals against them.
  5. What a Game - it's why we love and watch football. But I can't help feeling that VAR is changing the game forever and I'm not comfortable with it.
  6. But that's just it- he IS better. Okay, maybe not EVERY game but if you've watched all three over a period of time (rather than just the Liverpool game), you will have seen that more often than not, Willian & Pedro flatter to deceive and actually give us very little whereas CHO can take defenders to the cleaners and provides us with so much more, especially a bit of genuine pace. Sure Willian and Pedro have the odd game where they play well but they are NOT the future, CHO is, hence the need to let him keep playing and to improve and learn from his mistakes - even if that does mean the odd ineffectual game now & again.
  7. But you imagine if there was a Sp*rs v Liverp**l CL Final. f**k me, could there be a worse option. Talk about Hobson's Choice. Would love Ajax to lift the trophy now but failing that I will be routing for Messi & co.

    Was only a matter of time. The way it went downhill, the subscriptions must have been at an all time low.
  9. To be fair, I think Sarri did once win employee of the month when working at a Bank back in the '90's.

    ..........that rarely gets seen during a game. It's usually a frown with a shrug of the shoulders! Anyway hope you are wrong and it is just you being paranoid!
  11. There aren't too many of those about and we've already had a fair few of them. I'm still undecided on Sarri and a lot depends on the next month or so. If we fail to finish top 4 and don't win the Europa, then I would be inclined to replace him and to be honest I think we could do a lot worse than Garcia, so he would be in the frame.
  12. Think that's an obvious answer. Anyone who is ardent Sarri out, they would probably take Pardew never mind Garcia!! He has certainly done an impressive job at Watford this season.
  13. Yep, I think that's pretty much it as far as our top 4 hopes go. Loads of reasons why we haven't made it but I think ultimately the lack of a decent striker has cost us the most.
  14. Not saying I disagree but be interested to know what you are basing that on as we've barely seen him play this season? In games I have seen him (not for Chelsea first team), he looks mature beyond his years and very assured on the ball and when fit will be in the Wales side more often than not (OK, I know it's Wales!) But I do wonder if he is another player (a bit like Ake) who will suffer from not having an obvious favoured position so he gets played all over the place which won't do him any favours. Utility players are handy to have in the squad but they don't tend to get a great deal of actual game time. I would like to see him play more though, although expect it will be a season long loan for him somewhere next season.
