  1. Why would the club put out that cryptic tweet? That's pouring petrol on the flames. Surely they would only do that if something had happened, or they were looking to in some way influence someone / something?
  2. https://talksport.com/football/fa-cup/659667/brentford-data-revolution-england-smartest-club-championship-leicester-fa-cup/
  3. I did have a good stream but it has broken - does anyone have anything currently working?
  4. We've gone from being weak at the back and making up for it with goals (from Danny), to being relatively solid at the back and totally toothless. In some games it's really felt like we could have played three lots of 90 minutes and still not scored. I find it hard to believe that we'll sign a goal scorer in January though - they are expensive at the best of times. Fingers crossed we can manage to stay up this season. There's the makings of a good team there I think, with a few additions...

    Injury Watch

    Back in full training in two weeks, per Adam Blackmore
  6. If you look at the body language of some of the players in one of the behind-the-scenes pre-season videos it's pretty obvious that they found him irritating and unprofessional. I suspect Ralph did too.
  7. A lot will depend on where we are in the league, I suspect. It looks like we have some money left over from player trading this summer. Could we see some players coming in during January. Or maybe fringe players heading out on loan? Will we finally see the back of Shane Long? What about Fraser Forster - could he be pushing at the exit door by January? Could we try and make the Broja deal permanent?
  8. Highlights tonight at 22:30 on Quest, which it looks like you can stream live here: https://www.discoveryplus.co.uk/channel/quest?idp=Sonic&responseCode=212
  9. Brilliant interview from the young man. He's clearly a bright lad. Hopefully he's going to join the first team squad straight away.
  10. I wonder if we'll see Caleb Watts? He's not in the B team squad tonight. Forster Valery. Bednarek. Salisu. KWP JWP Diallo Watts. Elyonoussi Tella. Broja. If Stuart Armstrong is fit again, maybe he'll get some minutes, but presumably not 90
  11. Livramento for only 5 million is going to end up being the best piece of business that any club has done in this transfer window. This kid is sensational. Salisu was very solid, including his passing. Diallo added something when he came on. V happy with a point. Once they'd equalised I feared we'd fall to bits. Onwards and upwards!
  12. I lived in Nottinghamshire between the ages of 6 and 18. Hucknall is a monument sh!thole. It makes Pompey look up market. I've got no opinion on the CB!
  13. Interesting that McQueen gets a number...
  14. Seriously though, I think you're bang on with that. The only question mark really is over the 'Redmond' position, but I do think Redders will get the nod. It's 9 subs now, isn't it. So Elyounoussi and Valery on the bench too?
  15. Don't you think they'll notice if we field 12? (Stu + Armstrong)
  16. JV confirmed departure as per his own Instagram. No surprise of course, but just saying.
  17. I don't think it's fair to hold our centre backs solely responsible for the number of goals that we conceded last season. The whole team has to be 'on it' for the system to work. If the two forwards, two 'tens', fullbacks and DMs press high up the pitch but fail to win the ball or force the opponents back (i.e. if the opponents play through our press) then suddenly our two centre backs are badly exposed. How many times did we see them either dragged out wide to someone who had run in behind one of our fullbacks, or trying to play offside with a very high defensive line (e.g. the Spurs game...)
  18. 45 million for two older players entering the final years of their contracts is fantastically good business. I have high hopes for Salisu this season. Hopefully we'll get at least one CB in before the window is shut.
  19. Armando Broja https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armando_Broja On loan. Per Twitter, but seems like a very 'Saints' signing. Just signed a long contract extension with Chelsea. Young. 10 in 30 for Vitesse last season. 6 foot 3. I could get behind this one...
  20. working without VPN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkUsIokSDjU
  21. I'm sure I'm not the one to think that both Redmond and Minamino were awful today. Hopefully next season we'll have some upgrades...
  22. Redmond has been worse than useless in this game. Generally though, we look like we literally have no idea what to do other than pass it back to the centre backs
  23. Diallo is 21 years old. Second start for Saints (second start in the Prem), playing against the defending champions. That performance...
