  1. We don't have a creative goalscorer like Eriksen. Apart from Ziyech, none of those are comparable to Eriksen. Eriksen has Fabregas type vision and is dangerous outside the box and from set pieces, especially free kicks.
  2. Why are we not linked to him? He's obviously out of favour with Conte for whatever reason. We need someone like him in midfield. A goal scoring, creative mid. He's been linked to Arsenal, PSG, Wolves etc, but not us. I'd be all for it, but what are your thoughts?
  3. The thing is, even those coaches you mentioned had previous coaching experience before their first big job. Even Zidane coached the academy side at Real Madrid for two seasons before taking the top job at Real. Let us not forget that Zidane also had Ronaldo and Bale, among others at the club too, which helped massively. Solskjaer also managed Molde before the Utd job. Lampard didn't even do that. He went straight into the Derby job with no prior coaching experience. It's actually crazy Derby got to the play off final considering Lampard's lack of experience. This is why I'm torn on Lampa
  4. It wasn't like that last season though. We beat them. They were playing better then too. It's weird. That was with f**king Alonso, Christensen, Rudiger and Azpi in the back four too.
  5. Also, is there a mentality problem with London clubs? I'm genuinely curious because we have had this mentality problem for a few seasons. Meanwhile that man utd side have shown more grit and determination than we or any London side has. The same could be said for Aston Villa and Leicester too. Pissing me off.
  6. I'd actually like to see a couple academy players come in and play. I am sure they would show more fight than we saw yesterday because they want to play for the first team. Livramento at RB instead of Azpi, Anjorin up top and Bate in midfield. It is a shame that we have Guehi and Maatsen on loan. They would both fill in the LB and CB slots when needed. Guehi is arguably the best CB in the championship from what I've heard and read. Maatsen has also been very good too. Fed up with the lack of fight and/or quality our more experienced players have shown lately.
  7. I agree with others on that Athletic piece. Wtf are they on. Who is seriously out there to bring in as coach? There was talk of Tuchel. I mean seriously?
  8. Prob will sound all Brexity and bias, but the english players have been the only positive for me this season, apart from Chilwell. Mount, James, Abraham and CHO.
  9. Perfect time for me to get over the stress of watching this turgid uselessness.
  10. The Tomori situation doesn't sit right with me. Makes me wonder about behind the scenes.
  11. Again. Mentality problem. Just walking around. Not fighting for anything. Letting the game pass them by. I think Silva might have a mentality problem too. He had it too easy at PSG, but now he's going through a rough patch the mental strength goes.
  12. Poch is at PSG. Rafa would not be a good option.
  13. Who do we even bring in if Lampard goes? There is nobody of top quality to bring in. I believe it's also a mentality problem with the players. Lampard needs to realise that those players can't all be as good as he was. His mentality is not the mentality that is shared with a lot of the players he coaches unfortunately.
  14. We haven't had that for a while. Since Fabregas left, we have missed that kind of creativity.
  15. Look, man city are a good, well oiled machine. With or without some of their better players they have quality up top to punish teams. Our defence has given them too much space to work in and they've punished us. From us not conceding for ages to then having 2/3/4 goals put past us in the last couple weeks, it's frustrating af.
  16. Man City haven't even been playing well recently, yet again we give these sides a myriad of chances. Our passing has been dreadful. We aren't even testing them at all. f**king depressing. The problem is, we can't change the players. We can change the manager, but how much is that going to help. At the moment it seems like our recruitment is ropey and the mentality of the players is terrible. Not sure what is going on.
  17. Wtf was that? Kante has been poor for a while. Just doesn't seem to have it any more. Needs to be dropped.
  18. We have a mentality problem, and have had since our last league win. Arsenal are supposed to be the bottlers, yet they are stronger mentally than we are. Embarrassment.
  19. Oh, just noticed their first team keeper is missing too. That means their keeper for this game will pull out a world class performance, then turn to sh*t after today haha.
  20. Apart from Walker and G.Jesus, who else do City have missing? I heard they had 5 important players missing. Aguero is on the bench, as is Mahrez.
  21. I can't even laugh at Arsenal via AFTV any longer. 🙄
  22. Arsenal can thank us for this form, considering we bottled it against them. f**king madness.
  23. Going to Real Madrid. That was fast. Another top player going to one of the big boys in Spain.
  24. Surprise, surprise. We experienced the Utd bias when Azpi got thrown to the ground like he was in the WWE, yet we were given nothing.
  25. Absolutely. Arsenal had key players missing too, but didn't help us did it. We can't turn up against City with the same lethargy as we did vs Arsenal. They are capable of punishing us if we aren't up for it.
