    Ya rotter. Ahh, good stuff! I'm from Nottingham so hoping to get in the Forest end. Don't think their allocation has been released yet. Fingers crossed it's a corker of a game.

    How and where did you get it from?!
  • goptun replied to the thread Jurriën Timber.
    Oh, right. The way you worded it was confusing then, as you said 'Laporte, Stones, Ake, Cancelo aren’t physically imposing defenders'. I'd say Cancelo is a physically imposing defender, regardless of whether or not it's his standout quality (it...

    For a fullback, Cancelo is physically imposing - he's 6 ft. He was outjumping Chris Wood in aerial battles the other week, so he's definitely able to impose himself.

    Jesus Christ, the revisionism surrounding Daley Blind is astounding. He was fairly useful for a short period and covered well during an injury crisis, but it doesn't go much beyond that. The fact that he's been one of the less tragic defenders...

    That's absolutely revolting. It sets off the small bit of trypophobia in me.

    Only me that thought that was a shitty thing to say from the co-commentator? 'No one has really shone. There's not one player that looks like they'll make the step-up' or something to that effect. Shithead thing to say and completely stupid.

    If you can't berate an old, fat, and incompetent ref in a game in which his lack of ability and professionalism is benefiting Liverpool (who are chasing a quad) when the feck can you?!
  • How tenable would their position be if fan protests led to additional match postponements like it did against Liverpool last season?
  • Well, being better defensively than Dalot and Telles doesn't make AWB an absolutely excellent defensive right-back, which was your original statement. Shaw is the only one that's ever looked competent, but his injuries and changeable mindset mean...
  • Yes, they absolutely do need context. Telles, Dalot, and AWB all look good based on stats. Do any of them pass the eye test? Like hell they do.
  • @sullydnl posted Van Dijk's numbers yesterday. If you went off them, you'd think he was second-rate and not in fact one of the best in the world. Suitably enlightened?
  • This is absolutely the perfect example of when stats don't tell the full story. AWB is quite clearly not an absolutely excellent defensive right back - I'm genuinely surprised there are still people that believe this.

    Really? Will RB Leipzig be happy to negotiate a sale next summer when he only has a year left on his contract?
  • goptun replied to the thread Erling Haaland | Man City watch.
    Eh? The transfer fee is only a fraction of the deal. The agent fees alone are reported to be around £50-60m. Hardly what you'd describe as 'dead cheap'.
