    18 | Stefan Ortega - 2023/24

    I was watching highlights of the Bayern game yesterday and had exactly the same thought. It's uncanny. It's the saves where the ball is close to him and he remains upright but sticks a really strong arm out. Looks exactly like Neuer.

    9 | Erling Haaland - 2023/24

    Must be frustrating playing in this side for him. The amount of runs that get ignored is insane. Counted at least 5 occasions today where a semi decent pass, if played at the right time would have either had him in on goal, or 1v1 with the last man.

    18 | Stefan Ortega - 2023/24

    There are plenty of games where Ederson's radar is way off, but for whatever reason it never gets mentioned.

    18 | Stefan Ortega - 2023/24

    He's a far better pure goalkeeper than Ederson. Far better. Ederson doesn't have the basics.

    31 | Ederson - 2023/24

    Never seen a player get a free pass so much in my life. He has a braindead moment once every other game, has one of the lowest save percentages and XG saved in the league and his excellent distribution only outweighs his general average-ness as a keeper in the odd game where we are pressed...

    Good win. Can't stay switched on for 90 mins though.

    Am I right in thinking that at least a proportion of the Etisalat and the Mancini additional payments occurred prior to FFP even being implemented, meaning there would be no FFP to circumnavigate - meaning there is possibly another explanation?

    Because it’s relevant to the debate of whether or not he has met expectations. We entertain the cost debate when it comes to Akanji or Alvarez because both deals have surpassed expectations. So that goes both ways. With respect to Jack, it’s also relevant because the fact we were willing to...

    10 | Jack Grealish - 2023/24

    Even after all this time, I’m still torn. I get his value. We tend to play better when he plays because the game is less chaotic, but that is at the expense of him playing within himself. I just find it hard to believe that this is the player the club thought we were getting for £100m. I don’t...

    Crystal Palace PL (H) Post match thread

    To make matters worse we are absolutely shite to watch. I nearly nodded off at 2-0. We get caught in this weird fucking no man’s lands where we look like we don’t know whether to run the clock down or try and attack and invariably the game ends up drifting and the opposition gains a bit of belief.

    My fave. Never wear it but absolutely love it.

    10 | Jack Grealish - 2023/24

    I think it’s people misunderstanding discourses. I am not saying he isn’t good enough. I’m saying his output from LW isn’t good enough. It obviously isn’t, regardless of what other value he provides. We obviously haven’t bought him to just play safe 5-10 yard passes in field. And we don’t have...

    He’s right though. It’s to defend against all potential outcomes. The most likely and dangerous outcome in that scenario was Johnson cutting and shooting.

    2 | Kyle Walker - 2023/24

    It’s not just the cross though. It’s to stop him from cutting in and shooting too. He’s hardly renown for his crossing, particularly off his left foot, nor is Kulusevski renowned for his heading ability. The decision by Walker wasn’t that bad.

    10 | Jack Grealish - 2023/24

    I think you are misunderstanding. I am not saying he isn’t good enough. I’m saying his output isn’t good enough considering his position as a wide attacker. He has 1 goal in 27 games. I totally get he brings something other than that, but the bottom line is we need forwards to contribute to...

    10 | Jack Grealish - 2023/24

    I’m not saying HE isn’t good enough for a top club. I’m saying his output - 1 goal in 27 isn’t good enough for a top club when he occupies an attacking position. It clearly isn’t. It’s deluded to think that it is.

    2 | Kyle Walker - 2023/24

    Wasn’t great, but he was trying to stop BJ cutting inside and shooting given that he is right footed. Our defence should be able to deal with Son and Kulusevski in the air tbf.

    10 | Jack Grealish - 2023/24

    Not close to being good enough for a top club. Doesn’t have the pace to do anything other than come inside. He needs a left back overlapping and taking a defender away, but we can’t play like that because we have no legs in midfield to mop up the counter attack if we lose the ball. I’d try him...

    24 | Joško Gvardiol - 2023/24

    He isn’t a good defender. He’s in the same category as Upamecano and Konate - defenders from Leipzig who somehow command ridiculous money but are just a bit meh. Konate and Upamecano at least have the physical attributes to recover from mistakes. He’s technically decent but he’s not...

    8 | Mateo Kovacic - 2023/24

    Hasn’t worked out has it? Injury prone. Can’t really pass. Breaks the lines with a nice dribble every now and then but it fizzles out into nothing anyway. Nowhere near Gundogan level. No threat past the half way line at all. Not really trusted by Pep either. Just a weird signing. Same goes for...
