    Following Our Nearest & Dearest Rivals, 2018/2019

    https://www.itv.com/news/2019-02-22/watch-la-liga-live-on-itv4-every-week-until-the-end-of-the-season-starting-with-levante-clash-with-giants-real-madrid/ ITV to show is liga till end of season.
  2. Any GIFs of the goals? I'm watching a goalless draw at present Benfica/Galatassary. At least the cheapo wind is making it look better
  3. When two teams get record points it suggests the rest are poor. There are only the same amount of points on offer every season.
  4. That should warrant a ban. I'm in Lisbon and watching Benfica, are we that bad?

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    I think Sunday should be the game we judge him on, having seen how City ripped us apart, he has to change our approach to the game. Will he? f*ck knows
  6. You can't just transform one team into another. Different players country etc.
  7. More chance of shagging the Duchess of Cambridge
  8. First goal all important, we have start well.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Of course, there are lots of factors to be taken into account when quoting statistics. As I quoted the other week 'Statistics are like a bikini, what they show is suggestive, what they conceal is vital.'

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    His win percentage in the PL though is 57%. Still OK though about the minimum we should expect from our squad. He has been helped though by the new manager bounce at the start of the season before teams figured us out. Since December his win percentage drops to 54% with his loss percentage since then being 38%. His win percentage against other top 6 sides though at present only gives him a 17% with a 50% loss that though is only taken over 6 games. Undoubtedly our cup success has aided his overall figures, 86% in the EL, 80% in the CC, 100% in the FA Cup of which only three of the games could be classed against teams of any strength, though Bournemouth might now dispute that. The interesting part though will be how we perform between now and May, only at that point can we really judge him fairly using figures. I really am not a fan of stats in football though!
  12. In his pre match interview he complained of a game every three days in the coming weeks. With this in mind he quite rightly made a few changes without damaging cohesion. With the game won though I can't get see why he didn't become more pragmatic, if he felt he needed to change Jorginho for Kante allow the former to just sit in front of the defence protecting what we have whilst not using massive amounts of energy. The Hazard substitution was weird with CHO sat on the bench, a fully refreshed Hazard is undoubtedly our best chance of a result against United, CHO even in his very brief cameo went passed two defenders with ease in the closing stages...a final thirty minutes could have done wonders for his confidence. As for the third sub I'd have possibly taken off Azpi and given Zappacosta run for the final ten mins. If another goal had come our way, great but above all don't concede. As it is we now will need to put a strongish side out next Thurs with the cup final looming in the background. Squad management is touted as a failing of Sarri at Napoli perhaps we are seeing a repeat?
