  • When a team needs to, it feels like they can make 10-15 minutes of a football match just disappear with no events in it at all. Lyon are doing this well right now.
  • Wonder if Dybala and Stuart Broad share some DNA, something similar in their faces, if not their height.
  • He’s an excellent player, very very quick too. He needs a leader next to him and he’s had a bad night.
  • Did one match have a drinks break and the other not?
  • I realised as I was writing it that this maybe wasn’t the best connection between players. I just feel his nationality is part of the hype, I keep seeing people saying “He’ll be England’s number one before long” when he currently isn’t, it all...
  • That does! I think he has good attributes and could well be a good all-rounder, but that a lot of people may be simply going “anyone but DeGea”, which, well, careful what you wish for. English keepers have flattered to deceive with spells of...
  • 49% Henderson. How many have seriously watched him this season to come to that conclusion? Very few I’d suggest. He’s been fine but he hasn’t pulled up any trees.

    It hasn’t been cursed, it’s just been given to players, except Valencia, who don’t deserve to play as flair attackers for Man Utd! Sancho will come in and own it, I’m certain.
  • Hurrah! I enjoy three, each sub is an important tactical move by the manager, more is at stake with each change.
  • Agreed, he is not a high quality player in that midfield for them.
  • fps replied to the thread Was Sanchez our worst ever transfer?.
    100% like Rooney, he ran himself into the ground in his years of intense play and for those shorter players apart from Ribery I can’t think of too many who did that and had long careers, the latter never being a goal scoring monster either. Messi...
  • At another club.
  • fps replied to the thread Post match vs LASK.
    Sanchez to be confirmed as an Inter player tomorrow. Someone give Conte a medal.
  • I understand the “pace off the bench” argument in the championship. For the PL it should be “quality off the bench”. I like James but he has looked shellshocked for a fair bit of the season. That said, he seems an honest lad and I’m sure he’s...
