Re: New Training Ground

There's going to be two domes as far as I can tell. One at The Forest, which I suspect will be the more public-friendly, community based. And probably a bit of sweetener for the school, for looking after their Academy kids. Planning was granted some time ago, but it's taking forever to get going. Th...

Re: New Training Ground

All category one academies are off limits. It is like Fort Knox trying to get into any of them unless you have connections with someone who needs to be there. There are some incredible facilities around the country. It would not have been hard to put the security between one pitch and the rest of t...

Re: VAR

Still think the interpretation of 'clear and obvious error' is the fundamental flaw in VAR. IMO, the VAR official should only contact the referee if either of these clearly definable issues has arised: – goal should be overruled if an offside offence has occurred – player sending off or booking shou...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I tend to take everything posted on here with a pinch of salt and looking at the video of everyone hanging out at training there's no beef whatsoever between Kelly and Gomes. Hopefully it's a sign of him being used in the new season. Although obviously people who are trying to maintain the beef nar...

Re: VAR

The biggest improvement on VAR has to be around process - I still think replays should be shown on screens, so it is clear on what the referee is basing his decision. This was announced yesterday: Premier League clubs were today provided with an update on plans for the introduction of Video Assista...

It basically only comes into effect next season, first professional contract is maximum 3 years. Good news that Claudio osorio signing a deal too, think he's been quite highly rated too. Nelson Abbey and Malachi Talent-Aryeetey will be signing professional contracts in due course too. Nelson's a Wo...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Manchester United and Arsenal are reportedly both eyeing up the potential transfer of highly-rated young Reading goalkeeper Coniah Boyce-Clarke. The 16-year-old shot-stopper has impressed at the Madejski Stadium, having become a regular for the club’s Under-23 side this season. https://www.football...

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

Never seen anything like it tonight and last night. Lucas Moura was the only decent Spurs player last week, tonight he was sensational. But Alli made the first and third. The Ajax goalie made three of the best saves I’ve ever seen. Foolishly I suggested us taking a look at Onana a few seasons ago o...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Brilliant piece of business swapping Coutinho for Alisson and van Dijk. Kudos to Klopp, it's absolutely transformed the team. And the impact those two have had on Robertson and Matip, in particular, is staggering.

Re: New Training Ground

pitches being laid and floodlights going up Drove past it this morning, much more extensive than I realised ! Seems to cover double what I remember as the old Bearwood course. Couldn’t see if the floodlights were going up on an artificial pitch or a grass one, seemed very close to the road though. ...

Bit bemused that he's still living in Nether Alderley, seven years after he left United for Leicester. That's a trek and a half to get to Chelsea's Cobham training ground.

Re: BFTG - PNE

Oh yeah, the only difference for Ejaria and Baker is that they started slower and have had some downs as well as ups. The other three have just been consistently a cut above. The other two are left somewhat in their shadow by just how good those three are. That's probably a little unfair, Ejaria ha...
