    Injury Updates | De Bruyne "no significant damage" (p 190)

    Dead right. And the headline bears little relation to what’s in the main body of the article!

    Premier League Games 16/17/18/19 April

    The perspective is that they’ve won their last 5 league games and 8 of their last 9 in all comps. They look like scoring every time they get near the opposition penalty area. I can’t see them not winning their remaining games. We need 10 points to get over the line. It won’t be anywhere near the...

    If we don’t beat Villa on Wednesday, I think they very well might

    Premier League Games 16/17/18/19 April

    They’re jammy twats, but they make their own luck. They’ve got 3 or 4 players with quick feet to give themselves half a yard off a standing start and, unlike Sterling and Jesus with their endless scuffs, they’ve got the technique to hit the ball low, clean and hard. Deflections then play an...

    Premier League Games 16/17/18/19 April

    They look like scoring all the time. So many players capable of going past opponents from a standing start, just by sleight of foot (Rashford especially, but also Pogba and Greenwood), makes them so dangerous when they get in and around Burnley’s box. I’ve said it before, I think they’ll win all...

    Raheem Sterling - 2020/21 Performances

    Out of interest Billy, do you know/think the club is determined to agree a new contract come what may, or if they would even contemplate selling should the two parties be poles apart in their demands/expectations? Are they not even remotely concerned by the level at which Raheem is currently...

    Raheem Sterling - 2020/21 Performances

    I wouldn't be averse to that ordinarily. The difficulty however lies in the timing. If he were 1 year into a 5 year deal then fine, but unfortunately the club has a big decision to make this summer, essentially having to either gamble £60m worth of wages (estimate on my part for a new 4 year...

    Raheem Sterling - 2020/21 Performances

    I agree completely about the flaws being inherent. I was just making the point that our current style of play is accentuating those flaws whilst hindering his strengths

    Raheem Sterling - 2020/21 Performances

    I think the club should be asking itself whether it wants to heavily re-invest in any player whose strengths are negated, and weaknesses accentuated, by the current playing methodology (false 9's, inverted full backs, emphasis on caution and control in tight areas and not turning the ball over)...

    FFS, do I really need to put “in my opinion” after every post? Jesus

    I suggest you quit while you’re ahead. Season 4 of Vikings was as good as the series got!

    Aston Villa (A) | Pre-Match Thread

    If Pep makes wholesale changes in this one as well, we are going to put ourselves under some serious pressure in the league, particularly as we will still have to face Chelsea again, a team who will have everything to play for. Can’t afford any more complacency

    Ferran Torres - 2020/21 Performances

    Young lad, first season in a foreign league, and he’s had the positional awareness to bag a few goals, so it wouldn’t be fair to be overly critical, but, yeh, like you I don’t really see anything to get excited about. Medium paced and no tricks in his armoury. I just don’t see what he brings, or...

    Raheem Sterling - 2020/21 Performances

    I reckon this thread will be closed by the mods within 20 minutes. Positions are doubtless already entrenched, so posting is almost pointless, but all the same I’m genuinely struggling to recall a more incompetent 90 minutes from a City player. The elephantine overlapping pass he clouted out...

    Man of the Match Chelsea FA Cup Semi Final (N)

    Foden by a mile. Fernandinho put a shift in. The rest were poor. Sterling’s performance beggared belief

    Riyad Mahrez - 2020/21 Performances

    I would have cheerfully sold him after that pigeon hearted performance down at Cheltenham, but he’s rolled up his sleeves (finally) and is now turning in team focussed performances rather than Riyad Mahrez focussed performances, chasing back, and even tackling, like a good ‘un. Great to see and...

    Media Thread 2020/21

    I remember Townsend shouting “Get in” when Sergio completed his hat-trick against the German rags a few years ago, so he always gets well received by me, and Guy Mowbray loves us. His bio says he’s a York City fan, but he could pass for a Blue!

    Raheem Sterling - 2020/21 Performances

    Yup, sums it up. He needs a confidence boost right now. Won’t get a much better chance than that to be honest. Clean through, no pressure cos the game’s dead, cue a dreadful heavy touch leading to hesitation and the inevitable cut inside straight into a defender. Needs to just clear his head of...
