  1. Amad Diallo | 2021/22 Performances

    If Antony and Amad are that interchangeable then we sure as feck shouldn't sign Antony. Don't think that's the case, but we'll have to make do with what we have anyway. Plenty of bigger holes to fill in the squad, including the massive midfield vortex.
  2. Richard Arnold cleaning house | Making 'significant changes' to Social Media strategy etc.

    Obviously because nobody in the comms department knows jack about soccer so can't see how mindboggling it is... nor do they have the ability to correct it as none of them could put the names on the pitch in any coherent way. Mind you, you can't blame them when it's impossible to work out what...
  3. Facundo Pellistri | 2021/22 Performances

    Nor does the player have any obligation to move to the club and city we choose for them. "Oi Big Ben Foster, you are under contract so you are off to Shakhtar Donetsk next week". You game for that?
  4. Facundo Pellistri | 2021/22 Performances

    He is nailed on to start at the World Cup, so hopefully he will get better advice on what to do going into next season. As opposed to us and Alavés, the NT manager clearly rates him and knows how to get the best out of him. Will also not share whatever stupid rationale drove him to rejoin...
  5. 39 attempts on target, 20 goals scored

    This. If anything, you could argue the specificity of the stat supports those results being outliers: freak effectiveness leading to a heavy loss = nothing to see here. I mean, Liverpool only had five shots on target, FIVE. On another day that 4-0 could have been a 2-0 or 2-1... Nah...
  6. Post match vs Brighton & Hove Albion

    I know it's for charity but I'm sure even the Unicef guys are embarrassed at that. Actually, they could fetch some good bids from Brighton fans, they should retweet it for lols.
  7. Darwin Núñez

    I'm not sure why people give it for granted that players think this way. It's a job after all. One of the reasons I find him meh is I very much doubt he cares for that. More likely -and understandable- not to join because we are a mess and why walk into that?
  8. Ronaldo: Stay or go?

    I don't see how staying protects his legacy. Very much the opposite actually. We need a clean slate and building towards something. No halfway houses. It's in both parties' best interests that he gets out of the way.
  9. Edinson Cavani | 2021/22 Performances

    You keep painting it as dishonest when it is exactly what it was laid out to be: Cavani isn't a regular starter for the NT, has been unavailable as much for the NT as for his club, has got injured playing for the NT as regularly as for his club and has actually completed roughly as many minutes...
  10. Edinson Cavani | 2021/22 Performances

    Whether two, four or six we can agree to disagree but not on the gist of this. How hard is that? Does it justify banging on and on about a specific player being a problem? I saw earlier you going on about Pogba never getting a fair chance from fans and thus not owing us anything. The shoe...
  11. Edinson Cavani | 2021/22 Performances

    I stated facts: he only started five games in an eighteen game qualifying campaign. He didn't finish four of those. Four others he played 20 mins or so at the end, largely because he didn't feel fit to start. Whether for the rest it wasn't only injuries but also suspensions, Covid, the club not...
  12. Edinson Cavani | 2021/22 Performances

    You clearly have issues. Someone wanting assurances, not seeing much of a role for himself and wanting to have a role more in line with his plans/fitness is of course someone open to a move who may even suggest it and put it forward. That's quite different to "can't wait to get out of here"...
  13. Edinson Cavani | 2021/22 Performances

    Your picking and choosing at will over the entire qualifying campaign. Let's make it simple stupid: he was available for the last four world cup qualifiers, potentially 360 minutes of football, in which he completed 129 i.e. less than 50%.
  14. Edinson Cavani | 2021/22 Performances

    He has 2-3 chronic injuries he has been rotating over since WC 2018. The whole "don't feel fit" has been a regular feature since then BOTH for club and country. Over the last WCQs he only started 5 out of 18 games and had to be taken off injured in 2 of those. He clearly doesn't make that...
  15. Edinson Cavani | 2021/22 Performances

    :lol: that's a great analogy No doubt we are all disappointed. The odd thing is the shit-steering weirdos that camp in here.
