Re: Those were the days...

Kebe, Little, Convey and Hunt all made our style of play exciting to watch and not all used pace.
Their advantage was that the defensive duties were covered by solid full-backs (Murty, Shorey, Harte, Gunter).
Not sure we have that now.

Great OP. We will have those days again, just not this year.

Re: 8 home games left.

Plus goal difference could be worth a point end of season - so I wouldn't want to be dicked by anyone. So to speak.
Mathematically agree of course that 3 points is, er, better than 2...but getting dicked would impact morale a lot more.

Re: Teams to be Relegated 18-19

Our survival is dependent on a big points deduction on Brum or one of the others falling to pieces. Would be curious to know if Gomes is on a "Keep-us-up" bonus and if we stay up because another team has points deducted whether the club would pay out. I'd assume so, as it doesn't matter h...

Re: Speculation- Ben Woodburn

From Despair To Where? Or put him on the wing. We need someone with a bit of penetration to get round the back and deliver in some good balls.


Probably best to play him deep. And drill balls down the throat of the opposition.

Re: The midfield

It may be by memory failing, but I am sure Kelly had better games when pushed into a CAM role, so for me, if Gomes likes 4-2-3-1, I would see the options as: Bacuna --- Rinomhota (with Eza as cover) Swift (with Aluko and Kelly as cover) Then Harriott and Barrow either side of Swift (with GMac + 1 AN...

Re: Tiago llori

I thought Gomes made a point of saying he (depressingly) rates Ilori really highly He would say that leading up to a January transfer window, whether he rated him or not. You don't put your goods in the shop window and then say they aren't very good. Unless you are Gerald Ratner (https://www.thegua...
