  1. Looks like he lunges in A LOT. This guys going to give away a lot of penalties in between making clutch tackles. How is he in the air? We need a dominant aerial CB like VVD was against the bigger stronger forwards.
  2. They have 4 games in 9 days so if we're lucky they'll play a rotated lineup. Could see lovren and lallana starting. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. Unless it's Gao getting money out of china and then pulling it out of the club into a British account. In which case we're losing out on a sponsor that pays nothing. Do LD even have any revenue? Will be very interesting to see the club financials in March. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. Which wouldn't change if it was feet only. It's silly that because an attackers leaning forward with their shoulders that they're offside. What's that shoulder actually going to do? It's the feet that count in getting you onto the ball when it arrives.
  5. There's two levels of this. The first is being self sustainable by reinvesting what the club earns from all sources: sponsorship, tickets, merchandise, prize money, tv. The 2nd is only buying players with money made from player sales and pocketing the rest. Kat and Gao are guilty of this. We're beyond self sustainable, we're a year on year profit maker for our owners. They're milking us. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  6. I think the issue with all these close calls, not just in our game but throughout the league, is that strikers are leaning forward as they hit the line, while defenders are sometimes going the other way to create an offside trap. So the defender could have more of his body behind the attacker but the strikers leaning shoulder is getting him called offside. I wouldn't be opposed to them changing the rule to only measure feet and not the thighs/torso/head etc. It's not like the ball instantly arrives so the feet are the critical part to move into an offside position.
  7. Everyone completely missing the point that fake transfer news can also be misdirection to try to get another move done. We know agents do it all the time. "My player has interest from Chelsea and liverpool". Why wouldn't clubs spread false targets to speed up negotiations with another. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Can't see our director's turning down £40m when they see we still have Long and Carillo on the books. Hopefully no one bids. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

  10. Bizarre sacking. Made a CL final last season... Spurs struggling this season is down to player unrest with wanting more money which Levy won't give. The new contracts stopped this season after year on year renewals for most of the top players. Poch is the scapegoat. Player greed and chairman purse string tightening is the issue.

  11. Our accounts show we've made £65m profit over the last 2 seasons. That means we could've bought 4 £30-35m players rather than 4 £15-20m players and still been a self funded sustainable club. Ofcourse there's no guarantee that spending more = more success but you'd expect us to be in a much stronger position than we are. As it is, we're one of the lowest spenders so we're expected to be one of the worst performers. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. Dress up in winnie the pooh costumes holding free Hong Kong signs. We can't hurt his wallet by not attending (and hurt the team) but we can hurt his wallet with political pressure. We'll be outcast in china, banned from all coverage so he'll be inclined to sell the club. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    The Real Problem

    Who's scapegoat #20? The real problem is simple. $$$. We spend less than almost all other teams in the league so ofcourse we're going to be near relegation. 2017/18: £28.6m profit after tax. 2016/17: £34.1m profit after tax. 2015/16: £4.9m profit after tax. 2014/15: £12.0m profit after tax. 2013/14: £33.4m profit after tax. An owner that invests nothing and will earn back what he paid in 4 more years if we keep just surviving relegation. We buy players in the £10-20m and could easily push that up to a couple of £25-30m players each year but don't want to because of greedy owners. There's being a well run sustainable club, and then there's pocketing huge profits despite the team screaming for some quality investment. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. Sunderland survived the 8-0. It's way too early to call it in but we're always going to be skirting with relegation year on year with our level of investment. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. How blessed were we with VVD, toby, younger Fonte, spiderman and Wanyama. None of our current lot can hold a candle to them Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
