  1. Only caught the end of the game, but lots of players who just aren't good enough.
  2. Still waiting for this guy to make it. Reminds me a bit of Billy watching some of those highlights. Let's hope Billy's career has a different trajectory.
  3. They can't all make it. It's a tough road to the first team, and all of the ones which have made it through, have gone on loan for experience first. If they don't want to and just want first team games immediately, then that's very unlikely to happen here.
  4. For Chelsea he excels between the lines, receiving the ball on the turn and driving into space. For England he basically just played as a defensive winger. It's very different and unsurprising we didn't see the best of him.
  5. Where was the nations sweetheart Grealish when they needed him to step up and take a pen?
  6. In 2012, Chelsea won the Champions League and England were knocked out of the euros by Italy on penalties. In 2021, Chelsea won the Champions League and England are about to play Italy in the euros. Wonder if history will repeat itself.
  7. I thought he played well. No idea where this "terrible" is coming from. He's there to break up attacks, not so much for building them from the midfield it seems, in Southgate's system. I thought he did that well.
  8. Chilwell doesn't even get on the bench now, it seems. Weird. He's better than Trippier for sure.
  9. I like what I've seen from rice this tournament. If we can get him for a reasonable fee, maybe include a player like tammy or bat's, I think we should sign him.
  10. Could someone explain the obsession with Jack Grealish to me? It really confuses me. He's a good player, quite skillful. But the way the media talk about him and the way the crows reacts every time they see him on the bench, or he touches the ball, you'd think he was prime Messi. It's not a case of him not being a Chelsea player so I'm putting him down. I genuinely don't get it.
  11. Wonder how much the extra time with 10 men affected the pens. Lots of them looked out of their feet in the 120 mins.
  12. Time to move him on. Injuries haven't helped his career so far, but he's also never really settled into a best position and we have better players in all the midfield roles than him now.
  13. It's weird, cos we have lots of rivals, but I wouldn't say we have a main one. And none of those in the list would see us as their main rival. If I had to put some in order though, probably something like: Spurs, QPR, West Ham, Leeds
  14. Agreed. From what I've read, he doens't have any interest in coming here really anyway. So I think we could spend our money wiser than this.
  15. That's probably the reason though.
  16. Not as good as the old one I did with Stamford the lion.
  17. Possibly just so we can get more money. We'll probably still sell him.
  18. Think he would benefit from a year on loan, playing a lot more.
  19. That's the prize for next year's Prediction league. Not as nice as this years prize that erskblue got, but it'll do.
  20. I don't think Haaland will want to come here. Some reports were saying he only wants a "top top club", so basically Real or Barcelona I suspect is what they mean by that.
  21. Maybe we should have a Historical Threads section, for ones like this, City and any others we never want to lose.
