Re: How Are We Second?

Stats tell us more in depth about how a player or the whole team is performing, of course they’re worthy of consideration. What drives me nuts about the existence of stats is when people get lazy and only look at expected goals hence use that to judge how good a team is without them ever watching th...

Re: How Are We Second?

Ok let me rephrase, is probably looking to make some changes to make the team play how he wants us to play. Rafael himself said Bowen was more about long balls and Pauno was more about playing out from the back with a high tempo. That stuff takes a lot of time to do.

Re: How Are We Second?

We’ve played some very good teams defensively- Cardiff and Watford don’t concede many. Derby we could’ve scored more than we did we looked very good attacking wise. Barnsley we weren’t at our best but good teams win those kind of games, don’t forget we were denied a goal scoring opportunity when the...

Re: Season 20/21

The more I read these interviews the more puzzled I get to working out why Paunovic did so badly in the MLS, he was seen as someone who added to the problems Chicago Fire had rather than improved their problems. Either he was the worst possible fit for them or that there’s a major problem in his ga...

Re: Rumour: Joel Latibeaudiere

Eddie said in a Twitter group chat that he was on the list of potential centre halves around the time we signed Lewis Gibson. Probably is agent talk unless someone is leaving permanently.

Re: Rumour: Joel Latibeaudiere

Understood but isn't that the way of football? When Man City started splashing the cash most of the first team rapidly became surplus to requirements.. Oil can't get a game for Arsenal, can't even make the Europa League Squad. There’s a way of football then there’s bad man management. With Tom Holm...

Re: Rumour - Umaro Embalo and Goncalo Borges

Looking around our best options are Anthony Gordon or Ian Poveda. Having a feeling we’ll be looking at a free agent going off that.

Re: Sone Aluko

Aluko brings huge amounts of championship experience that we otherwise lack in a young, relatively inexperienced team. This isn’t just one really good game, he did ok against derby and he helped us bring the game to Barnsley. Clearly he’s a good player. Did nothing against Luton but most would stru...

Re: Rumour - Umaro Embalo and Goncalo Borges

Portuguese media have picked up on Borges but insist nothing has been finalised. Nothing on Embalo. Exclusives has heard nothing about either, although perhaps as it is deadline day they stress it doesn’t mean it won’t happen.

Re: Rumour - Tomás Esteves

We are trying to loan out Tom McIntyre. Tom Holmes is a brilliant prospect but let’s be honest, he’s not a right back and playing youngsters out of position risks absolutely ruining their confidence. I’m more concerned about Araruna- what happens to him now? He’s not going to be back in the team af...

Re: Rumour - Tomás Esteves

Big, exciting prospect that Porto have high hopes for who’s in contention to win European golden boy and is already their second choice right back. Was absolutely crucial in their UEFA youth league win but is a bit weak. Would be a very good player to have on our hands.
