  1. I just still can’t really believe it. After watching (for me) 20-25 years of crap. Of watching every ‘nearly moment’ going against us. Stupid red cards, endless penalty heartache, the Lampard goal that wasn’t, Sol Campbell getting mugged etc. Now we’re ole’ing passes with 5 mins still to go in ET in a massive semi-final. The really exciting thing is this squad will be together for our next 3-4 major tournaments. They’re still pretty young. I am so excited for the weekend, but it’s also bloody exciting knowing that this isn’t some ‘last throw of the dice’ deal. We have the potential to use this confidence and momentum and (with the squad we’ve got) establish ourselves as an international side to be feared.
  2. I don’t judge Grealish for winning free kicks. If anybody actually watches him for 10 minutes, the bloke gets lumps kicked out of him. He’ll drift across from left, to right, and through the middle of the park, and he gets smashed everywhere he goes. Control and touch are excellent, and he just draws rash tackles. That said, much as I’d love to watch Grealish as a fan, Foden is (IMO) a class above, or more. Grealish is an excellent footballer, but Foden is one of the few genuinely world class footballers around. We should be building a national team around him for the next decade.
  3. Would presume the cash flow from the EFL will be in relation to EPL solidarity payments or something of that nature. I.e. monies owed as opposed to borrowed. Not that that dilutes the significant concern that we’re having to wait for it to come through and it can’t (by the sounds of it) even clear the salary debts already owed to current and previous employees.
  4. We’re either being sold, or we’re likely to go to the wall. The end game is coming. The sheer volume of cash needed to get us through the next 6-12 months dictates that if we’re struggling to cover our salary bill, we will in all likelihood lose the stadium (given the charge over it) and soon run afoul of HMRC. We have very few assets left that could be sold to quickly generate material sums of cash either. So there is either a bidder in the wings (in which case it wouldn’t be unusual for an exiting owner of an essentially valueless entity to starve their business of cash ahead of a deal), or, far far more likely, we will see a drawn out and protracted liquidation. There won’t be a Mandaric this time. Not in this operating environment.
  5. Hopefully nips it in the bud about Tommy’s favourite position whilst he was still with SWFC. Even he seems to think he wasn’t much scratch at CB until he grew up a bit. Good lad though. Not sure what Megson hated.
  6. It’s also frustrating as players look for any tiny advantage they can get. Rightly or wrongly. Would expect to see a few more attacking players to get ‘caught’ in those sorts of scenarios now.
  7. Foden and Bellingham different class, very exciting that the two standout players in the latter stages of the best club competition in the world are two English kids aged 17 and 20. Also, amidst all the stick Pep got for not aggressively pushing Foden’s rapid development, easy to overlook that he’s now already played 115 games and is still only 20. I think they have handled him exceptionally.
  8. Lots of Blades saying how good it is that it’s a positive ‘peace’ statement. Seems immensely clear to me that he couldn’t factually challenge any of the almost extraordinary statements that the owner made about him, so has resorted (consistent with his media performance over the last few years) to cringey chest thumping about how humble their successes have been.
  9. For what it’s worth, Moore comes across as a decent and sincere sort of chap as a manager. But I’ve heard a few different stories from footballing circles that he was more than capable of being a nasty sh!t as a player. I don’t think him being too ‘nice’ is the problem. Perhaps instead we look at our woeful squad, for whom 50%+ are also focussing on getting the F out of here as their contracts are expiring in the summer. That might be a hint of a factor.
  10. @King_Monkey if you’ve got the inside tip for a bet for us all, now’s the time!
  11. Come on Loxley, nobody likes a fence sitter. Tell us how you really feel!
  12. Chelski v Man U game utterly devoid of energy- players looked knackered. The only way these backed up/crammed games are going to produce any entertainment at the moment is from tired mistakes.
  13. VAR producing again, best player of their season along with OG.
  14. It’s one of those where, if I didn’t know Biggs’ work, I’d think it was a journalist levelling their criticism in a subtle and layered way. It is Biggs though. So safe to say there is no deeper meaning...
  15. Probably the same ones that thought that Werner’s one was never a penalty, but McBurnie overrunning and then seeking contact a few mins later was a stonewaller. McBurnie is getting smarter though. Managed to dive this time without injuring himself.
