    2021/22 stats

    Can’t find any stats thread. It’s fun to look at but reading too much into it will skew the perception of the game. I’ll start with Allan top 5 tackle in the league, top 3 when it comes to midfielder: current count stands at 21 in 7 games. only behind willock(Newcastle) and kucka(watford). 23...

    James, left right or center

    for the balance of the team. I prefer to see him center. We have nobody capable of playing an effective center attacking midfielder. the right side is open to exploit all season if we persist with him. the balance of the team is disrupted if we keep scrambling players out of position to cover...

    Thomas Meunier

    Surely deserve his own thread. You can’t offer a contract offer without the permission of the club. Assuming this report is true. I hope this is not tied to any possibility of Gana moving the other way. Obligatory YouTube vid Everton have made a provisional contract offer to Thomas Meunier...

    Steven Kinsella

    Steven Kinsella, who is this kid? Any blue had any information about him? Whats the transfer fee like? We've beaten the likes of Chelsea, Man Utd and spura to land him. Sounds like we bag a wonderkid.

    Cahill's contribution.

    Did nothing apart from the shot, we're no different from playing with 10 men. Was he having a go at Pienaar while walking off the pitch? What was he ranting about?

    Our creativity!

    Taking out cahill makes such a big difference to our attacking play. All our 5 midfielders were inventive and creative. I've never seen us play with so much variation and flair. We didn't restrict ourselves only to crossing. There were so many pockets of space to exploit because of an extra...

    Underated Neil

    With all the hype on felli, donavan and pienaar, I would like to remind everyone of our unsung hero Lucas Neil. He is the reason for our reduction of hoofball. If you study him carefully, his first option is always trying to thread the ball forward. If it's not possible, he'll carry it himself...

    Pippo Jozaghi

    Jo reminds me of Inzaghi. The lazy, lurking, opportunist with limited skills and spent 90 mins trying to play at the edge of offside trap. I've notice we've play a lot of thru balls down the middle towards Jo in recent matches. Not sure it'll work on Jo but it's certainly nice to watch.

    Hoofball - instruction or preference?

    Quite many of us do not like to see us play hoofball from the back. I hate it with a passion. The main culprit? Yobo follow by Distin. Some might say we do not have players to carry the ball in midfield due to injuries but yobo had been hoofing even with pieenar and arteta in front of him. My...

    arsenal fulham burnley portsmouth bate stoke wolves we've played 13 games so far and 7 of them were really poor compare to our usual standard. The most worrying thing is we've been poor since portsmouth and that 4 consecutive match. Time to stop giving excuses and have a good look at...

    Transfer deadline aftermath - view and reaction.

    Generally I am please with our summer transfer, was hoping we can add one more CM to ease the burden of arteta. The problem in RM was not solve either. What I'm most concern is the 20 odd million we have in disposal now. Will it be gone in Jan?
