    Now we know the answer to "What happens if you outsource kit design to the local special needs unit?".

    I have no idea what we'd compare like to other teams in the league, but for me it was one of the bigger weaknesses of the last few years/Poch's reign. Individually a few of them have often had problems, Alderweireld and Dier in particular I have seen too many times caught underneath the ball...

    Player Watch: Serge Aurier

    Bollocks was that a good game. He stopped being mugged off by Grealish after a bit but he had one of those days where he was constantly out of position and/or sleeping on the job. Even that one he 'saved' in the second half was caused because he was asleep and had let the man run inside and...

    Same old as far as I'm concerned and personally I'd worried what's happened if he became so integral part. His work for the first goal, player shrugs him off, chests it down, turns runs and leaves him with ease. If that's a Foyth or a KWP there are endless posts on here about them being bullied...

    Premier League 2019/20

    Incredibly end to end so far in this game. Surely eventually Arsenal will strike the killer blows in a contest like that, but you never know.

    He was up against Serge who was having one of his days where he'd left his brain at home, and Toby who was showing he's not far off matching Jan in the decrepit stakes. The one where he just waddled past him down the flank and left him trailing was a borderline retirement moment for Alderweireld...

    Nah he was focused on inviting the little nibble and hitting the deck, whether that was a tactic to win set plays I don't know but I stopped counting after half a dozen times he wriggled away from pressure and had the opportunity of a pass through the lines to a VIlla player but instead stopped...

    I don't think he was great to be honest. He's a decent technical player but one paced and today was often just looking to hit the deck rather than play any football. In a better team he might flourish when it's not all on his shoulders, but ultimately today he was up against Aurier and...

    No words. Nonsense game of football. When the ball hit the back of the net I just laughed. Fucking hell.

    Absolute fucking chaos out there. Alright conditions are tricky and you have to allow for that, we've also been against the strong wind first half it looked like, but lets be honest we were absolutely not at the races for the first 25-30 mins and could quite easily have been three or four down...

    RFU has financially been up the creek for a few years now, they've basically ringfenced the national team (in fact, basically given Eddie a blank cheque for whatever he wants) whilst cutting funding for everything else.

    Just my opinion, but I think playing all Bundesliga teams is basically the same proposition and you go about it the same way. Whenever I see games from Germany now all the teams seem to play similarly, absolutely balls out, playing high up the pitch trying to get on the front foot and employ...

    Some of them were silly, but then some on the overhead angle were starting on a trajectory about 15 metres or so infield before veering hugely off course, to be fair to them. And there was a bit of pot luck going on, sometimes kicks were fine and travelled true, sometimes a huge gust took them...

    I think England did the right thing in that half. Wasn't pretty at all but just made sure after about 10 mins that the game wasn't being played anywhere near their 22 and the danger of getting trapped in there against the wind. Second half hopefully it can be used to our advantage and do what...

    The whole interview reads as a pretty measured one, to me it's hardly having a moan.

    I just don't believe there is some new approach to be known about. And that reads as you now posting it as your opinion rather than your previous which read as if you had knowledge of it. I very much doubt there is anything new or radical. That is pure PR guff to sell himself whilst his stock...
