Re: other matches this weekend

As I have said many times in the past 15 years, there MUST be a happy medium between a club who does not have the patience to allow a proven world-class manager still at the top of his game to navigate through a short slump in form and one who indulges a past-it or second-rate manager year after yea...

Re: Shower of dirty cheating Manc filth who ended our record unbeaten run by being dirty cheats A Sun 4th Sept KO 430PM

They deserve some slack because of the way they played the first four games, though it has to be said the first "big" team they've come up against they've folded like a deck of cards. Is this really as much progress as we'd imagined? Shouldn't we have signed another ball-winning midfielder...

Re: ALL Transfer talk - merged thread

William Saliba has ‘communicated’ his desire to stay at Marseille next season to the club hierarchy. Manager Jorge Sampaoli, in a recent meeting with his management, has made Saliba ‘the priority of the off-season’.

Re: other matches this weekend

Calvin Bassey was outstanding on a big occasion yesterday, and although I haven't watched him before by all accounts he has been throughout his first full season with Rangers, especially in their Europa run. He is only 22 and already shaping up to be the sort of centre-back and leader we have sorely...

Re: Palarsewipes A Mon April 4th KO 8pm

Didn't Partey go off limping before Tottenham broke away and scored once? It seems to be his Partey-piece.

Re: Bye bye Chelski bye bye

This is without question a terrible conflict and we would all rather not see the attrocities Putin is inflicting. Football is not more important than life and death. But still, as the saying goes, and speaking as someone who hates modern day Chelsea far more than modern day Spurs....."it is an ...

Re: other matches this weekend

So....let's take stock of the weekend's sporting achievements. The club with "no history" has now won two European Champions Leagues and a World Club Championship since Abramovich took over. Meanwhile, the man who is majority shareholder in the the club with nothing but a (very proud) hist...

Another great stat is that apparently this is the first season since 1989/90 that we will end January not in any cup competitions :roll:
1991/92? We went out of the FA Cup in the 3rd round at Wrexham, out of the European Cup (Benfica) and League Cup (Coventry) well before Christmas.

Re: Costa Del Sol Tournament Winners 1965,1966 A Sun 16th Jan KO 430pm

Can't see the request being granted. The PL made Palace play at Spurs a couple of weeks ago and a few of their "unavailable" players were miraculously fit to play. Don't blame us for trying, though. Might have helped if that melt of a manager had not loaned AMN out little more than a week ...

Re: Forest A Fa Cup 3rd round Sun 9th Jan KO 510pm Itv

Arteta just needs to pick the best 11 . We only have the two legs against Liverpool plus a potential final, and the rest of the games are league games. He just needs to pick the best 11 and challenge the others to play their way into the team. Perhaps it was also complacency and thinking this would...

Re: Forest A Fa Cup 3rd round Sun 9th Jan KO 510pm Itv

Oh well, never mind. We did look splendid in our lily-white shirts. Jeremy Corbyn, Keir Starmer, Islington woke. Ra, Ra, Ra! I can't identify with this club on or off the field.

Re: Mikel Arteta, success or failure? - Merged thread.

I wonder what Arteta’s remit is for this season. Europa League Qualification? Will the owners give him the whole season? Things were looking not too bad a month ago. The Leicester and Spurs results now look like a false dawn which propelled us way above where we should be in the table. Who the next...

Re: Mikel Arteta, success or failure? - Merged thread.

Although Arteta is beginning to win me over with the greater consistency of team selection and performance, I get the feeling that Van Bronckhorst will be our next manager to take us to the level of challenging for the league title. Based on what? He could be a total flop at rangers Still very, ver...
