  1. This is brilliant, well written and insightful. It hurts to read it and you see the human side they all go through. It must make winning the champions league so much sweeter for him after pouring his heart out in this article
  2. Absolute agree. What a ridiculous question anyway! Also love how Azpi just celebrated has soon as Kai dropped the F bomb XD
  3. Man, seeing him embrace his daughters and wife just showed how much it meant to him. Incredible achievement, especially after losing last year. Absolutely buzzing!!!!
  4. Ampadu would be able to play CDM too, he's good on the ball and will definitely have gained a lot of experience at Sheffield. Heard he was doing well for them earlier in the season, not heard much since then...
  5. Meanwhile Thiago looks like he's the support teacher on a school trip. Relaxed, little smile, seen it all before.
  6. I know I'm nitpicking here but I've never understood why stats orientated people tend to round up or down when it suits them... Surely you could just say that's 14 games, don't need to round up there! I'll crawl back into my cave now...
  7. I think that's a bit harsh, he doesn't always knock it back to Azpi... I think the aim in that situation is to then play it square to Kante/Kova/Jorginho who can then surge forward into empty space in the midfield. He only pops it back to Azpi when that ball isn't on. There's real method to the way we pass the ball around now, probing for an opening and I like that James is mature enough to buy into that philosophy. I'm sure he (and we) would rather see him gunning it down the wing and delivering pinpoint crosses but that clearly isn't TT's gameplan at the moment and in light of recent re
  8. At first it annoyed me but I'm noticing pundits and journalists are trying to really push any potential controversial narratives in games, especially when VAR is concerned. It's lazy/easy journalism and always gets a reaction from fans. I'm trying not to let it bother me so much now, just see it as pundits are under orders to add to the drama.
  9. Agree with you here. I think last night was one of our standout performances... A strong Everton side didn't really have a sniff all game and we had so many chances going forward, could have been 5-6 goals on another night. Getting that first half goal was key, took the pressure off and meant we never exposed our defence looking for a goal. Some of the passing interplay was a joy to watch.
  10. Leeds will certainly be an interesting encounter... They're one of the few teams who go all out attack.
  11. Shoulda Woulda Coulda. Fact is it worked and we have kept yet another clean sheet. Being able to close out wins like this now will hopefully instill a belief and trust in the defence for games to come. Yes, if we had conceded 2/3 goals at the end we would have been a laughing stock but they only managed one shot on target in the last 20 minutes or so. Better teams will, of course, have more of a go and that's where out mettle will be tested but being able to see out 1 and 2 nil wins is crucial. It's what wins teams titles.
  12. Fair enough. I just feel that you can end up compromising a winning position by chasing that perfect performance or the perfect goal. I prefer consolidating the win first, especially considering he's a new manager and needs to rebuild a winning mentality.
  13. I have to disagree with you there. Seeing the game out at 2-0 is not a bad plan. They managed to get 1 shot on target after Kante came on, so no real danger of losing. We don't get more points with a 4/5-0 thrashing and by putting Kante and James on, he's reinforcing the defence to ensure the win, rather than open the game up and invite Newcastle to have clear opportunities. If we could beat all teams supposedly weaker sides 1-0 or 2-0 I'd take it any day.
  14. Made a decent but relatively routine save at the death, most importantly pushing the ball out wide rather than back into the middle. Happy with his performance and certainly not at fault for the Rudiger howler.
  15. You're exaggerating there. Jose 2.0 was way worse and these are completely different circumstances. We started playing badly as soon as we were made to play every three days. Up until then everything was looking positive, people were talking about chelsea being title contenders. Judging Lampard on Covid affected seasons is pointless... He effectively had no preseason with his new signings and hasn't been given a chance to coach effectively due to fixture congestion. I'm not saying he's God's gift and the answer to everything but comparing him to that Jose season is nonsense. After 14 mat
