    Player Watch - Steven Bergwijn

    Impressed with him. Seamless transitition to the PL, and the only one upfront today who had any kind of hold-up play, apart from his other qualities.

    Match Threads Aston Villa vs Spurs - Match Thread

    He ain't a speedster, but he used his smarts on the turn to leave our defenders exposed a few times, and showed enough pace to worry us in those situations. He reads the game well, exploits spaces and defensive vulnerabilities. Think the only reason he couldn't punish us was because of the...

    NBA thread

    It really was a great night. I can't remember the exact points deficit the Lakers had to overcome in the 4th. In fact, the Lakers hadn't been playing well for much of the game. It all turned in the 4th, and the place was going nuts!

    So sad! Saw Kobe play a few times for the Lakers at the Staples including the 2000 Western Conference Finals game 7 against Portland. He and Shaq were on fire that night! He was one of the all-time greats.

    Player Watch: Serge Aurier

    Didn't watch the game live to day. Had to make do with youtube highlights. Didn't see what he did on the defensive end, but saw some great distribution/crosses coming from the wing from Serge in attack.

    Premier League 2019/20

    Mate, we had no squad vision re everything. The aging and outgoings of key defenders and CBs, and much worse re our DMs, has just been a model of neglect! The overplaying of key players, 'cause we haven't invested in a squad is plain to see.. The simple outcomes are Kane, Alli, Eriksen etc...

    Liverpool deserve absolutely everything they've achieved. If a club does all the right things to support the vision of a great coach, great things happen! Tottenham?

    Premier League 2019/20

    Think you can talk about both Liverpool as a team itself and also how they’re reffed. They’re the best team in the league. Their shape, positioning, movement, quality of players, squad depth, confidence in player roles…I could go on! Klopp has done an outstanding job! Their scouting team also...

    Player Watch Player Watch...Dele Alli

    I guess Dele All divides opinion far more than I realized. I haven't wandered into this thread too often. I'm genuinely surprised. I've read the match threads and ratings sometimes, but I'm surprised by the negativity re Dele here. Apart from anything else, we're struggling with suitable, fit...

    Same issue with Kane. They're not playing with the same energy they did a couple of years ago. Desire, passion and all that goes so far. He needs a rest.

    Player Watch Player Watch...Dele Alli

    Guess we all see things differently. To me, he’s been off the pace and looks crap because his body needs a rest. Neither Dele nor Kane are cowed by much, which is why, apart from their talent, they’re starters. Dele looks shagged. Has done in the last few games. Kane has too. His hammy went...

    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    Of course there's more, maybe "the more" has to do with the shitshow he signed up to join. I just think this whole debate is getting misdirected from the real issue. We don't look good, 'cause we aren't very good. We aren't very good, 'cause we've neglected squad requirements all over our...

    So, I guess you know what's required of a "number 10"?

    It starts with defence. All of those players would play better with a functioning defence behind them and a strategy that they could trust.

    Match Ratings Ratings vs Southampton

    It’s not a good assessment at all! Nor is the OTT criticism of Ndombele and his fitness. We’re expecting far too much from new players who are coming into a squad that has so many deficiencies…defensively in the main, it’s a joke! It affects our whole system which means the absence of any...

    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    I actually agree with you more than disagree. I was just reacting to your descriptors of "dull" and "paint dry" football re Mourinho. I disagree that "it's no longer free flowing possession football." We didn't have that brand of football for Poch's last year in charge. Think another poster...

    Nice one. If Kane scores, he should do the robot celebration.
