    That's certainly the Manc way of going about the Spanish pronunciation :p

    Milan Skriniar

    This guy is a legitimate risk of turning into a Mangala for us. Like Mangala once was he's really good at defending in a side that defends normally, but asking him to play higher up the pitch is a bit far out of his comfort zone. I think you need a very specific defender to work in a high line...

    Gabriel Jesus - 2020/21 Performances

    Haha fair enough! I wasn't clear, I meant they can wildly bump up (or down) a rating in one game based on a couple specific stats which can take away from assessing the overall performance. But not always, sometimes the bumping up is merited. But over the course of a season I find they're...

    Spurs thread 2020/21

    Honestly I don't know how you put up with Son. 4 offsides vs Southampton. Awful game.

    Spurs thread 2020/21

    Just seen that Son leads the Premier League in offsides with 4 this season. I think a few who rated him are going to suddenly find him to be awful, at least by this board's metrics.

    Gabriel Jesus - 2020/21 Performances

    I find that they can be a bit data point heavy at times. They value goals, dribbles, and tackles really high. But generally they have the right idea. FWIW Jesus was the fourth highest rated player prior to scoring, behind De Bruyne, Foden, and Traoré (2 goalscorers and Mr. Dribbler) as well...

    That's wrong, but I'm not going to correct you as your way sounds more fun and I don't want to ruin that for you.

    99 Rich People Problems...?

    She looks fucking ripped. Anyway she's speaking from a privileged position and it's probably naive at my kindest reckoning of her to equate her struggles to those of some others, but at its core it is a valuable reminder that we are all human. We all have the same emotions and shit, it's just...

    Who is the best of the rest?

    So. I think City and Liverpool both have enough about them that unless BOTH have a weak season AND some other big 6 side does brilliantly then that's the top 2. I think 3-6 is who we'd expect it to be. On paper Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, and United are better than everyone else. Arsenal and...

    Houssem Aouar

    Intriguing tidbit in a recent Sam Lee article. He states that Aouar was done and dusted in August, as per ITK rumours on forums. Just thought it was interesting to see a journalist bring that kind of stuff up.

    Benjamin Mendy - 2020/21 Performances

    Zabaleta used to get skinned by pace in some games and he was still a good fullback. It's a bigger picture thing. There were lots of pieces of defending by Mendy that were good that went unnoticed.

    Wolves (A) Post-Match Thread

    If he plays enough and we continue to score at the rate we have done these past 3 seasons then I think his goals and assists numbers will probably match Sané's outputs. So 10-15 in both categories in the league. Although I think he'll score more than he'll assist.

    Nathan Aké - 2020/21 Performances

    Good start, looked really solid. I do think it'll be a few months until we really start to see the best of his passing game though, as he gets up to speed. I don't think he's quite at the right level on that front, yet. Understandably.

    Gabriel Jesus - 2020/21 Performances

    There's a pattern with Jesus. He lays the ball off, and makes a run. He's on the shoulder of the last defender waiting and waiting and then when the pass isn't on anymore, the defenders step up and Jesus is in an offside position. Then the pass is played, and Jesus is offside, and the complaints...

    Gundogan tests positive for Coronavirus

    It's difficult to say. We would have been better in the first half with Gundogan. The entire team was pressing brilliantly and those are the kind of games historically where Gundogan looks at his best, when he's got lots of running around him. He's better in possession than Fernandinho and...

    Wolves thread 2020/21

    Wolves are like a light version of a Mourinho side of old. Really solid defensively, pace galore out wide, and exciting forwards. They'll 100% be in contention for Europe. A lot of Portuguese players though so they're set to become the league's shithouse team.

    Fernandinho needs to go back into midfield

    This forum would be pretty quiet if we enacted that policy around here with player discussion.
