    Player Watch: Tanguy Ndombele

    Ah. I thought it was some sort of witty abbreviation, acronym or some such. How dull. Boring Old Banter that.

    Just one question. Who the f*** is Bob?

    Featured Which is fairer? Coronavirus implications

    With regards to cancellations of the season and tv money. Would clubs need to refund the tv money rights for the remainder? Do they get it all upfront or is it divided out per game? Quarterly etc? I just wondered if there was a chance games would be played behind closed doors. Although even...

    I know. It's so predictable.

    Given the track record of the club and its penny pinching approach to signings and sales, the only way I can see JM getting funds ffor fresh faces is doing a 'Bale sale' with Kane. He isnt used to that and likes a lone striker. Be interesting to see what he does. The ineptitude of succession...

    JM was always going to cause division.

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    He didnt knock parrott, he said the penalty miss wasnt Troy and it didnt matter as everyone misses them. I thought he was fairly supportive. As he was of Sessegnon and Tanganga post Leipzig. When JM is asked a direct question about a player and gives a direct answer, it is taken as negative...

    Yes of course, he is responsible for a player that wasnt in the team.... But a lot of the conditioning of the players, who look spent, must be down to mad physical training all the time with no relent. Not just the injury list. The human body can only take so much and they are showing it now...

    Neither did MP in the last 6 months or so. He didnt have the injury list either. We were defensively woeful then. To pick up on the other point, the team being set up defensively, which is still more leaky than a pair of tramps pants, should go more attacking? Thus being even more porous...

    In reference to the way he physically beasted players? I wanted him to remain, for what it's worth as I couldn't see anyone making this current squad do any better. JM not getting a.tune from.them proves it really. But the injuries sustained cannot be coincidental to how they were put through...

    Not the worst, no. But bang average players bar a couple of exceptions? Yes. This isn't Mourinho specific. These same.players (mostly) were gash under Pochettino in his final months. He didnt have he injury crisis either. They have run their course. What manager would you suggest could get a...

    What's he supposed to do though? Magic ability into players who have seen their best days and others who are at best, average? I cant think of a manager who could get this sorry lot playing well. Not with all the injury problems, which I believe blame can be laid at the previous coaches door.

    I'm not convinced that is entirely accurate.

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    The club has been inept at succession planning with the squad. Not just around young player development. The whole 'clever' approach Pochettino was made to go on about, was basically bargain basement shopping hoping to find a Ralph Lauren amongst the Primark. It is rare for any youth product...

    Yep. Of those available, they are mostly average footballers, (GLC aside). I dont understand any of the critique at JM. It doesnt matter what formation, tactic or inspirational speech he gives, i dont think he currently has the tools to make it work. You cannot.magic quality or ability...
