  1. 100% with you. Heres one totally from left field we still have Van Ginkel who has been granted another contract and who I personally believe if he can just get over those pesky injuries could still be a very decent player
  2. When signing RB was mooted for £35 million I was non plus when he signed for £15 million I yawned he is a player that promises so much and delivers so little. We to be honest have players pushing for a squad place that offer as much but here’s one that was mentioned few weeks ago elsewhere and that is that Reece James will be converted to a midfielder and to be fair on the few glimpses we have seen him there I think that’s a reasonable call.
  3. Last season when we went behind by two or three we knew there was no way back. There is no doubt that we were terrible in that first half but even then we should have been closer to then in terms of not being three down. But we were three down Heads didn’t go down and in any league, against any opponents to pullback from a three goal deficit rarely happens. Indeed in the PL it hasn’t happened in 11 years till yesterday. Thiago Silva is still very much in pre season, Willy bless him is not a PL keeper .Marcus Alonso can’t defend add to that he makes far too many mistakes the
  4. It’s not on Sky but if you go to Barnsley’s site you can watch via the EFL service. It will cost £10 but proceeds go 50-50
  5. Marina is clearly a very intelligent and extremely competent operative. How she looks is of no matter but she is who she is. My wife made a very interesting comment the other day concerning the colour of players skins. She said that gone are the days when she even noticed what colour they were they are footballers and in a way that’s exactly how we should be looking at Marina. No not as a footballers but someone who clearly is at the top of their game and their looks, their sex, etc etc is not relevant or something you should use to measure them. Here ends the first less
  6. I actually saw him play whilst I can’t be 100% I am pretty sure it was for Chelmsford City against Weymouth in May 1977 a game Chelmsford City lost 3-1. In that era many many of the all time greats dropped down through the leagues indeed playing for Weymouth was Jeff Astle. It also worked the other way is many non league players were transferred to top clubs. At Weymouth the likes of Andy Townsend, Graham Roberts all started off in non league as did a GK who featured in the game a chap called Bob Iles who was sold by Weymouth to Chelsea in May 1978 for £10k
  7. Here’s a thought for you The transfer cost of the 13 players who played in yesterday’s game was £ 219 million. The 14 Spurs players cost £ 284.4 million.
  8. Sometimes the add ons or benefits are worth more. For instance as part of the deal 3 have agreed that Yokohama remain a significant commercial partner not something that happens save on rare occasions in addition 3 are installing infrastructure not just restricted to mobile technology.Whats that worth? Irrespective when these type of deals are announced rarely does the value of the package get put in the public domain. Often when it does we are told what it could be worth not what is actually paid. Take a look at the Utd deal with Chevrolet . Failure to qualify for the C
  9. This is very much the point.. When Arsenal embarked on their rebuild match day receipts were very much the highest of the income streams but commercial and indeed TV monies now are the top two money makers Its impossible to know if Arsenal would have been more successful since their rebuild but repayment of interest and capital payable more than accounts for the extra gate receipts. When you factor in that most replica shirt sales etc aren’t sold to match going supporters then it gets harder to justify the monies required to add capacity When you factor in their
  10. Meant to comment on this earlier. First off the £26.6 million shown in the accounts which some say is solely in respect of sacking Conte doesn’t make sense . In 2019 it was reported that a PL tribunal awarded £9 million to Conte ok he had a few staff but I really doubt they cost £17+ million to buy out their contracts irrespective my understanding is that if either party disagreed with the tribunals award the appeal process was by way of the High Court yet according to the DM Conte took the matter to an Employment Tribunal. So did Chelsea refuse to accept the ruling ? If so
  11. I suggested some months ago that maybe ,just maybe we should be looking at letting Kante go and got pelters. At times we all tend to take a very short term view and I am guilty of that as the next person but for the first time in many a year we truly seem to be building a squad based on HG status mainly achieved through the academy. But and a big but we need to add talent and yes whilst I agree Kante is world class his transfer value and contract length at this point in time means he is worth mega money and for me the decision to keep or sale is one that the powers that be will st
  12. I don't think it will be reduced. Its not like we marginally bent the rules. We committed more offences than the average Irishman in Botany Bay. We should be taking the punishment and moving on. Its not like we are going to do much business on January anyway. Not sure you are right about the ban . i have read the 44 page summary following the appeal to FIFA What struck me is that there was an awful lot of subjective conclusions indeed more often than not there isn’t a specific rule just how other rules could be interpreted another set of eyes not in the employ
  13. In other cases the parties have agreed that the decision be announced before written reasons published . A good example is the Real Madrid case. They made an application for what’s called an “Expedited Procedure “ Their appeal was then heard by a sole arbitrator on the 14th December 2016. CAS notified all parties of its decision on 20/12/2016.
  14. No doubt the majority have picked up on the rumours regarding Erickson's wife but irrespective there is something massively wrong at Spurs, and that’s an understatement. Hey we’ve wasted a shed load of money on transfers but now they are spending money they are a pale shadow of the team they were two seasons ago. Other than Kane and Son the vast bulk of their squad have peaked . I can see Poch walking or maybe even Levy pulling the trigger the problem is they are going to have to service a multi multi million pound debt and to do that CL is a must. Do I worry about their problem

    Every goal is actually scrutinised by VAR. If your talking about how many decisions are reversed then very few , I think it’s something like 8 that have been disallowed not many but having been at the game on Sunday and seeing how it impacts it isn’t a nice feeling at all. For me it’s the lack of consistency and indeed the lack application of VAR. For instance Arsenal’s 3rd on Sunday should have been disallowed no offside or the like but the goal was scored direct from a free kick and an Arsenal player was within a metre of the wall. Or what about our game against Man U when a
