  1. I don’t think it is mate. I saw a report on Man U’s attendances recently that pointed out the despite 74k crowds being announced, more often than not there’s a lot less than that, 63k was for a game against Palace iirc. We have a lot of very well supported clubs throughout all four divisions. We got 21k in Lg1, Bradford City got nearly 16k in the bottom division yesterday, that’s more than a lot of well known Bundesliga 2 clubs. Theres only so many people willing to pay up and actually attend matches and we have a lot of grounds to fill.
  2. Glad you were only tempted to say it. Actually saying it would be ridiculous.
  3. And for fans of Championship clubs, as effectively only two promotion places are up for grabs every season.
  4. Nobody will make much of it there whoever’s in charge, Far too far north to ever attract decent players now without having to pay well over odds. Far smaller clubs from London will beat than to signings if the wages are the same, just to be able to play in the capital. Same goes for Leeds. Wanted Conor Gallagher but he chose Palace to stay in London. Newcastle, for me are PL history not present or future.
  5. As soon as he could, much like Pep and Klopp, Bielsa changed his goalie to adapt better to his style of play. Recognising that whilst they were good goalkeepers, their ability to also play as a last defender was poor. Ironically it was BPF who he replaced because of this. For us to play the way DM wants requires a keeper confident with the ball at his feet and with accurate distribution. You don't often get that, as well as being a good shot stopper at Lg1 level.
  6. CR- In three seasons, how many finals have you taken Man United to Ole? OGS- Errrr..5,6,7..8,9,10. CR- Honestly? OGS- 1
  7. But the Gerrard - Lampard - Scholes problem was 3 players for two positions. We could have at least 8 players vying for 3 positions, assuming Kane's a shoe in.
  8. Crikey. Penalties aside in a Euro final, we’ve not lost a game in the last 16 fixtures. What do you put down to, if not an ability to manage games?
  9. No mate, he’s just a characterless jerk. Personality of a Mersey ferry.
  10. I don’t get the Grealish hype. It seems everything that he does gets over stated as being some kind of world class piece of play, when in reality it’s usually something pretty big standard. In the second half TTA made a great run down the right, a little step over and delivered a great a great ball into the box, never got a mention from Lee Dixon. Grealish under hits a pass to Mount, who nearly makes something from it, and we’re treated to two replays of Grealish and a swooning appraisal from Dixon about his involvement. He’s a good player, very one footed and lacking pace, but a good player. But far from best in an England shirt.
  11. To me he comes across well but slightly hypocritical. Everything he dislikes about the game and players these days reflect exactly how he described his approach the game as a player. Hated it and had no respect for players been late to training but fell out with MM (a senior international) because he bo33ocked him for it, when RK himself turned up late for Ireland.
  12. If there's there's any liquid at all left in that, it's going in his mouth.
  13. You’ll be one of the don’t need Rice and Phillips posters I’m betting.
  14. Misses next two fixtures with Covid. Ridiculous thing to do, could have p!shed in or owt.
  15. Fair enough but in my opinion, far too many times for England I see Kane nowhere near where he should be for a striker. I don’t want my main striker getting 7 assists and players running in behind him. I want him in a position where he’ll score. Living with a Leeds fan and an in laws all Leeds, I see a lot of them. I’ve never seen Bamford drop as deep or out of position as Kane, only when doing his defensive duties. Watching Kane put crosses into the box from out wide, for England a few months ago, drove me nuts.
  16. I don’t think his game doesn’t resemble Kane’s at all. For both club and country, Kane appears to do what he wants, when he wants. Dropping so out of position some times it’s laughable. Bamford does as he’s told. As you say, he’s effective in Leeds’ system and in my view would be England if played the same.
  17. Every good thing he does involves his blistering pace. Every bad he does involves being a footballer. A two minute highlight reel and only one decent opportunity created ( in the first 10 seconds) in the whole thing.
  18. He’d have no chance. Watch his ball control, it’s terrible. The amount of times he loses the ball through a poor touch is amazing for a PL footballer. I’m not even sure it can be worked on and improved, he’s just clumsy with the ball at his feet.
  19. Ball control? His first touch is almost a pass, his control of the ball is clumsy and his crossing is far more off point than on. Take away his pace and he’d be Lg1 or 2.
