  1. Television The Pro Graps Thread

    I think they’ve backed themselves into a corner again. If Drew beats Lashley at Wrestlemania he’s going to become hated by a vast majority of the fans who wanted to see Lashley as champion after the amazing work done by the Hurt Business. I can easily see Drew becoming another Cena or Roman in...
  2. If David Moyes turned United down in 2013, who would've been next on the list?

    See I disagree with this to a point. I think in Sir Alex’s mind he’d brought through Jones, Evans, Smalling, Cleverley and Welbeck, bought Kagawa and Zaha and if you read his book he was absolutely certain Powell was going to be a great player. In his mind I think he thought the rebuild was...
  3. If Dortmund doesn’t qualify for CL

    One thing I do know is If Dortmund don’t qualify for the champions league we’ll have some upset Leverkusen supporters on this forum.
  4. Sergio Ramos

    He’s still a good player who’d bring a winning mentality which is extremely lacking in our current squad. One has to look at Varane’s form without Ramos to see the impact he has at organizing and covering his partners. He would be a great addition to the squad. It wasn’t long ago people were...
  5. James McClean: 'Does being abused for being Irish and anti Irish abuse acceptable?'

    I think Keane mentioned the same thing that he was constantly called a gypsy and things of that nature while he was playing. I think his main point is that racism is racism regardless of colour. I’d imagine things like gypsy or sheep shagger is seen as banter and he thinks it should be treated...
  6. Amad Diallo signs for Manchester United

    We do need to start playing him a bit and see how he gets on in the Premier League for our future planning. I'm not talking about him being a nailed on starter next season, but if he looks like he's good enough to make a contribution next season, then we can get away with Mason, Rashford or...
  7. Jose Mourinho Sack Watch

    This had disaster written on it from the start. When results don’t go his way, the only way he can possibly fix it is by spending and with all clubs hurting and Tottenham not typically being huge spenders, that’s not an option. If I was a Spurs fan I’d be praying to lose the league cup because...
  8. Shola Shoretire

    At the beginning of the game yesterday the commentator was absolutely raving about him saying remember the name Shola Shoretire. Was odd because he wasn’t even on the bench.
  9. David De Gea | 2020/21 Performances

    I’m trying to wrap my head around what changed in him. When he got hear, he was labelled a flapper but we worked on that side of his game to the point where he was commanding his area that we stopped talking about the improvement he made and it was accepted that was another strong side to his...
  10. Dortmund watch

    Isn’t there some kid from one of the English academy’s that they can buy and sell for a huge profit? Profit>points and trophies. Proper football club.
  11. Jack Grealish

    Great player and I want us to sign him. Having said that, what are people on about with him being a Pogba replacement which has been said probably a hundred times in this thread and the Pogba thread. Grealish plays as a 10 or on the wing. He certainly doesn’t play deeper like Pogba and won’t be...
  12. Bayern Munich’s public pursuit of other team’s players...

    It’s perfectly fine. They stockpile the best players from the Bundesliga and then when they do well in the Champions League, all bundesliga fans can rejoice at the combined effort to showcase their superior league. We just don’t get it.
  13. Lionel Messi’s Obscene Contract

    No idea why anyone’s blaming Messi for the mess Barcelona have caused themselves. These are the same idiots who have Griezmann 800k a week when any club in world football wouldn’t give him half that and Griezmann desperately wanted to be at Barcelona. It seems like they negotiate like they’re...
  14. Real Madrid and Barcelona's debt

    How do the Spanish clubs get to this point of ridiculous spending? For every player that goes there or is even linked with them, they all dream of Madrid or Barcelona so why are they paying them such huge salaries? Had we matched or exceeded Madrid’s offer for Ronaldo we still wouldn’t have been...
  15. Thiago Alc*ntara aka The Fingerer of Merseyside | Liverpool Player

    From what I read yesterday in the Dortmund thread, I think us Premier League fans just don’t understand the genius of Thiago. After all he’s learned from the 2 guys whose play style ushered in a new era of sophisticated play to the league that us mere mortals can’t begin to understand. All...
