Should be on the bench v Brighton but after that we will have a tough decision to make. Maybe Werner could swap over to the RW , has he played there much?

I think werner has done well but to say there's a tough decision about werner is a little far fetched

Gutted for the lad, would have been nice for him to win, the time for talk has now passed. The Lord's work must be done.

What made them believe that Klinsmann was the right person for the job?

Forget anything else, I want us to win something so Sonny's career with us wasn't ultimately for nought like H's when all said and done.

Isn't that a tiny bit reductive? Regardless of whether or not he wins a trophy with club or country, the guy is an absolute legend, and will be remembered as one. It would be incredibly sad if he looked back at his career and felt it was ultimately for nought because he didn't win a trophy. Moreover, it would be tragic if 'fans' felt his career amounted to a hill of beans if he didn't have a winner's medal to show for it when he eventually wraps it up.

It's a bit reductive yes but players of their calibre winning absolutely nothing with us is ridiculous.

Winning isn't the be all and end all but I'm not asking us to go out and do the quadruple or anything. Just win something every now and FGS. Like we used to do before God started his personal smiting of me in the early 90s.

If that's reductive then so be it. I loved watching Ledley and Keane lifting the league cup and you could see they did too. Winning stuff does still matter at least to many.

Edit: It's not a question of the feelings we have as a club and fans towards them but their individual legacies as players.

Yeah, I definitely understand what you mean. And would love nothing more for him and us as fans. But, like I said... I also hope that when he hangs up his boots, and it just so happens that maybe he didn't win a trophy, that he can look back and feel fulfilled.

As I do worry a lot about the God Smiting!! Some serious blessings or chicken sacrifices need to be made, as we clearly pissed off one of the higher beings!!! 😂

I reckon the dodgy grill behind the south stand would do you a deal on a goat sacrifice + 20 burger combo (might be a couple hours' wait for the burgers :whistle:)
