  1. Yeah, they'll chuck another £100m at their squad now. One of the disappointing aspects of the window closing after the season has started... Unless it's all a waste with them... Again.
  2. Big error from Martinez, would not have affected the result, but Mitrovic saves him by being his usual reckless self.
  3. Who shall we loan Lemina to next summer, Portsmouth?

    McCarthy

    Forster and Gunn don’t get down to the shot that McCarthy made from Taylor last night. That’s why he’s number one.
  5. I’m sure Dyche used to always go on about how his players never dropped easily. They’ve been dropping like flies on numerous occasions in the first half hour, Wood the latest culprit.
  6. Brilliant play from Bednarek to KWP to Adams and then Ings with the whole goal to shoot at. COYS!
  7. This link seems the most believable. Going by information from here and in the media Weston McKennie was our top midfield target to replace Hojbjerg. Ntcham, Davies and Loftus-Cheek are completely different midfielders to McKennie and are more in the Armstrong mould, Davies more of a JWP, but without the set-pieces. I've never seen this Sangare play, or heard of him before now, but he seems like more of the midfield battler type, that McKennie and Hojbjerg are.
  8. Same site who said we had beaten Leeds to the signing of Harry Wilson.
  9. The two £40m striker signings I mentioned have both proven to be duffs, probably on good wages too. Newcastle have still made some solid signings this summer in Wilson, Hendrick and Lewis (Not too sure on Fraser, seems like he had one purple patch and nothing before, or after). While, West Ham have reportedly made a £36m bid for Wesley Fofana today. I’m not having a go, but bad signings on high wages that can’t be sold also aren’t exclusive to Saints and is just another excuse that many, including myself before have accepted for why we aren’t spending money. When on the outside it just looks like Gao won’t put any money in and we’re running on Championship level budgets for as long as he remains in charge.
  10. Since taking charge, RH has only been able to sign four players permanently - Adams, Djenepo, KWP and Salisu. To put this into perspective, Mark Hughes made four permanent signings in his one and only summer here. Wolves, who you're quite rightly saying have also sold players this summer have brought in five senior players just this month alone and had a much better squad than ours last season. But, keep arguing that we're being ran like every other club in the league and that our owners are fine. It's West Ham and Newcastle who are the real sufferers. They both made £40m striker signings amongst other incomings last summer, the poor sods!
  11. Must be a better CM option elsewhere in the world. A midfield of Davies and JWP will get torn apart more often than Romeu and JWP and we need all the defensive protection we can get. How we’ve gone from Schneiderlin, Wanyama + Steven Davis and Cork to this is shocking.
  12. Rory Delap’s son on the bench for Manchester City...
  13. Targett costs Villa a penalty against 10 men Sheffield United.
  14. The manager hasn’t been backed (again), so much like last season he has to once again adjust to the strengths of the squad, rather than instilling his own tactic. Today felt like the Leicester match, in that the defence gave up once the third had gone in and Spurs were then just carving us open. No excuses, as this is an out of form Tottenham team, who aren’t known for playing exciting football and were put through it on Thursday evening in Bulgaria. Semmens will say he’s waiting until the end of the window, so that we can get a good deal. This isn’t and shouldn’t be how football clubs work. We’ll be a handful of games into the league season when the window closes. We probably won’t see the new players until November. Clubs identify their targets and go out and get them. Liverpool got Van Dijk before the January window had opened. Newly promoted West Brom, Leeds and Fulham didn’t sit on Diangana, Rodrigo, or Reed, thinking they’ll be cheaper when it gets closer to deadline day.
  15. That was very fucking lucky. Very tight offside, absolute shite defending from all four, imagine leaving Kane unmarked in the box.
