  1. Yet he kept picking him to play, so he must have been happy with the way he was playing.
  2. Its not about expecting. But all players want to be playing. There’s a difference that you seem to be struggling with.
  3. Injuries are part of the game. But this guy and the team we now have will get the players back playing and up to match fitness quicker. Reducing the likelihood of injuries and speed of recovery is key and this is what this guy specialises in.

    yeah chavez, who last fought in the mid 2000's is stretching it a bit! i think of the current fighters, it goes loma, alvarez, crawford, GGG, Inoue Aside from the robberies and bad judging there's a load of decent match up's to be made in boxing.
  5. i would assume it is a case of we cannot register them yet. if that's the case as the season approaches, then i would think the players would request to be released from their contract in order to be able to continue their career elsewhere. should we say no, i reckon they would have a good chance of winning in court. however, i can't see any of that happening. we must be in a better position that this time last season, just by the number of high earners we have released. we were allowed to sign onomah and hector on loan, so can't see why letting 6 go and bringing 3 in most likely

    ok i was thinking a bit more short term than that. some cracking names on there, but i genuinely think even now Loma is in the top 5 of that list. garcia has just vacated, some saying so he doesn't have to fight loma, so loma will pick up that belt. Spence is going to be a great, but so far he's won 1 belt at 1 weight. Loma is a 3 weight world champion, after only 13 fights. i would say if a fighter didn't unify or win world titles at 2 weights, then already Loma is ahead of them. i would say crawford has to be on that list too. he is a beast and someone i love watchi

    As I say you haven’t engaged in any debate. Your views on khan are very very different to most people in boxing. As are your views on lomachenko. As you say, not much point discussing any further as we have different style of debating and just like fights, it’s all about styles!

    Your claim that khan is a poor boxer now rests on the fact he went on reality tv. That is barrel scraping. I thought we were talking about boxing ability. I keep posting up actual stats, but you don't address them. That's not a debate it's just chucking up wild opinions and sound bites, the like you read on shīt rag newspapers. And if you read the post, you would see it's 5 fights and that brook has pulled out of, and that's just from my own memory. I am 100% certain it's been more and i know that because unlike you i actually know a lot about boxing. I'm all for debate, but you'

    It's not a case or debate of whos' dad is bigger, but if you make sweeping statements, you kinda have to back them up with more than just sound bites. Again, comfortably beaten anywhere near a world class fighter, the stats don't show that. SD loss against peterson which he should have ben given the decision, he beat maidana and algieri who had both held world titles, madaina went on to win a world title, beat broner and was classed as the best opponent out there for mayweather to fight after he lost to khan. Khan has his limitations, but to say he's a bad boxer and ov
  11. If he does, i will blame you! If this was a young lad then fair comment, but cattermole is an experienced pro, with many attributes that we need to steer clear of. It's not writing hm off, it's making an informed opinion based on what has been on display for a number of seasons. If he was really so good, then Sunderland, a team who will definitely be chasing promotion would have kept him, instead they paid a large chunk of his wages to let him go. 'accidentally'

    Again, you've not offered up any facts or stats with regards to khan. He won a silver medal at the olympics at just 17 tears old. Generally winning a medal at the olympics is a good barometer of where a boxers level is and how good they are. Current boxers who won a medal at the olympics include: denotay wilder, lomachenko, joshua, Usyk, Gamboa, Povetkin and your 'all time best ever boxer' golovkin to name a few. Lomachenko is the best boxer of our lifetime, again nobody disputes that who knows boxing. so yeah 'wow' either bring some facts to the debate or stfu. You don't know anyo

    I know a lot more than you bout this. more talent than khan, but was overlooked for team gb?! didn't fit the profile but was signed up by frank warren at 21? Has been guarded by Eddie Hearn for years too. He's pulled out of more fights than any other current boxer, that's why he's stagnated and had to keep having 'tune up' fights against nobodies. And yeah Golovkin destroyed him, which is why Ingle threw the towel in. Brook even said he was hitting golovkin with his best shots and it didn't stop him coming forwards. If you're not an armchair fan then, what do you do in boxing? Hav

    You are not saying anything with substance though. Only boxed against 2 good fighters, i assume you mean canelo and crawford then? so you are saying maidana (he beat), collazo (he beat comfortably), garcia (got dominated by), algieri (he man handled), lamont peterson (he lost SD against a drug user, manu had him winning) to name but a few are all bad boxers then? All of them held a world title at some point. All are decorated fighters. Let's leave the brook comparison to one side, it's irrelevant in this discussion. Next you think winning an olympic medal is a sign of a bad boxer,

    That's just a bunch of soundbites and ridiculous claims, no real boxing knowledge at all. Brook's only legitimate win against a live opponent was against Porter, a fight many said was too close to call, he didn't blast his way to a world title by any means. Nobody in boxing thinks Khan is a bad boxer, absolutely nobody, so if you think that, it is you who cannot be taken seriously. He's had his china chin clipped by big hitters, yet only been ko'd 3 time and that was by Garcia a p4p notorious banger and Canelo a guy 2 weight classes above him and then an early defeat to prescott, a

    Boxing

    The aim of the game is to hit and not get hit. plenty of boxers made a very good career out of not having their china tickled. Khan is a decent boxer, he has some good wins on his resume and he's faced some genuine p4p fighters at their peak. Having thought about it, I wouldn't be so confident that Brook beats him now. Brook has a poor trainer, can't get motivated for fights, walks around 3st overweight and is a pretty basic boxer who plants that front foot way too heavy before throwing the left hook. Brook should be keeping active, but he thinks because he got destroyed by Spence
  18. his instagram is pretty awful. he's definitely a mirror wânker
  19. how do you think he knows he's 2st over weight?!
  20. Maybe Chelsea could offer him a new contract and just keep loaning him out i know that’s been a tactic of theirs in the past with players.
  21. What a horrible little Cünt he is and his advisors. Fück Leicester too. I hope they implode as a club. Truly disgusting that they have done this and they’re firmly cemented as a club I hate now. I really wouldn’t mind DC being publicly vocal about all of this. We are punished by the EFL for not abiding by their ‘fair’ regulations yet other top flight clubs are pulling tricks like this, ripping away our investments, how is that fair?!
  22. Its not whingeing though is it? It’s having a discussion, engaging with opposing views and applying some critical thinking. Seemingly, something you’re finding quite difficult to engage with at the moment trying to reduce any points made to ‘what are you going to do about it’ is very basic and petulant. I find it so odd on here, the mentality of some, that you must be positive about everything going on at the club and any attempt to discuss issues is just shot down and dismissed.
  23. Reading this I feel like I’ve had a line of ket.
