  1. There comes a point when you have to stand firm and try and progress as a club and keep your best players, delighted with the ambition shown by the club. We must make some progress this season and not got involved in any relegation battle, really excited for the season to kick off. Everything is here for us as a club to go on and progress
  2. We seem to be really struggling to get deals done though I do accept it's a very unique transfer window. Hopefully a big few days ahead this week.
  3. Quite possible given the current situation. Celtic have scouted some serious talent over the years. I have no doubt Edouard is more then good enough.
  4. Edouard is the real deal from what I've seen from him, whether we could get him I'm not sure but would certainly love to see it happen.
  5. Time to keep things steady, no major changes. We have the spine of a good team and good character as demonstrated. 4 or 5 good signings in the right areas and I think we will be fine next season. Smith deserves full support next season and Suso leaving would appear to be a nod the recruitment wasn't quite up to scratch like the glaring deficiency we were left with upfront. I think the break showed we shouldn't write some of these players off. Luiz and Konsa were much improved and a player like Wesley may still prove a good player. Big problems were addressed over the break, well done to Smith and co.
  6. That point ensured their safety. While it was unlikely they would go down they wanted to get the job done last night. Hopefully that was their last big performance of the season though we have to expect everyone around us to win and get the job done ourselves.
  7. Was feeling much like Stu mentioned after the Everton game. What a win that was last night and I really didn't see it coming. Can't get carried away, still work to be done but we should take massive confidence going into the West Ham game.
  8. I think it would be wrong to write them all off. We've made these same mistakes before with really good players like Veretout, Adama and Gollini. Players take time to adjust and we have been here before. Gollini really rankles with me. He was very good young keeper and now an Italian international playing Champions League football but because he was a little young and nervy and not an instant roaring success we gave up on him rather then develop and improve him. If we're going to recruit players like this we need to give them time. Players like Konsa and Luiz could develop and mature into really good players. Mings has been mixed but if he had a solid partner beside him he would be much better. You could however say they were the wrong signings to make for a relegation battle and a few were just really bad business. I struggle to see why Targett escapes criticism while others take so much, good threat going forward but that's it. I want my defenders to be able to defend first and foremost.
  9. Absolutely, Bruce was hammered for performances like that, not necessarily wrongly. We've been naive at times this season but now we are surrendering any kind of battle before we take to the pitch expecting to soak up pressure something which isn't playing to this teams strength.
  10. Absolutely appalling yesterday. All I ask is that we scrap hard but yesterday was inexcusable. We all knew at 1-0 up that it was only a matter of time before we folded, how we took the lead was a miracle. Chelsea coasted through that game. I think Smith has been badly found out at this level coupled with really bad recruitment yet again.
  11. Was meant to be heading to this, just before Covid started to take off. I fancy our chances now more then I did back in March. Wednesday should stand to us and I'd like to think we will be a little sharper then Chelsea. Davis has to play again for me, worked so hard for the team and I thought we looked pretty toothless when he came off.
  12. Couldn't get into it all, apart from Villa I have zero interest in watching matches like this with no crowd. I thought Davis worked really hard and looked good. Nyland showed once again he is an accident waiting to happen.
  13. Money, money, money. I think it's absurd to try and finish this season. The season should be declared finished and planning put in place to try and deliver some kind of normality for next season. The only possible positive to come out of all this would be for the whole Sky/Premier League football money bubble to burst and some sort of a reset.
  14. We can only speculate on exactly what happened but it doesn't look good.
  15. This was criminal and how they failed to punish us for it I don't know, though Leicester were very poor themselves despite the scoreline. A struggling team like ours should never be using zonal marking, it seems a lose system based of it anyway as how could this pair up happen. A well drilled team who know what they're doing then perhaps zonal can work but not here, it's crazy. We should have gone back to basics a long time ago but our failure to adapt has cost us. Comparing us to everyone else around us I really can't see anything other then another embarrassing last place finish.
