Re: Loan Signings

We have no such chance with Harrison for example, Izzy Brown would cost far to much. We are loaning players either not good enough or well put of our price range. If we got promoted then we could easily afford both of the 2 mentioned. Same with Mooy at Huddersfield - they had no deal to buy but bec...

Re: Loan Signings

We should have been in for them was my point, instead of signing players who arent that good and just can pad out the squad. Mount and Barnes would both be in the first 11 imo, as would Gayle, as would Besic. We are relying on Bielsa and his coaching rather then bringing in quality in depth. We sho...

Re: Spain v England - 7.45pm tonight

As above. Get hard to get enthused about the national squad when we are light years away from being top class. We got extremely lucky with the draw at the world cup and getting to the semi-finals masked how poor we are in midfield and how overly reliant we are on Harry Kane. Hopefully blooding the y...

Re: Gambling..........

I think that for many people gambling and apophenia are closely related. Apophenia is seeing patterns in unrelated events and ascribing significance to them. BB will see a horse with the name Harry in it, and she ascribes this to a pleasant experience that she had with a friend from Australia... th...

Re: Gambling..........

That being said, only a very few people ever make money consistently betting on sports, and the amount of work required to do so can make it feel more like a job than like fun. My best advice: bet only what you can afford to lose and bet only for fun. I have been making my living out of Sports Bett...

Re: Loan Signings

You may prefer them but by and large they were not available to us and certainly not just to play second fiddle to our players. Yes having Abraham would have been nice but can't really see him coming here to be 3rd choice in case of injury instead of being a starter at Villa.

Re: Loan Signings

I suspect we didn't even consider those more high profile loanees all doing well for their new clubs whilst our loan signings struggle to make an impact in our U23's let alone the first team :( Well out of the 7 that Cjay mentioned - Barnes nearly joined us but seemingly preferred to stay in the mi...

Re: Loan Signings

We just seem to be doing Chelsea a favour. To be honest it isn't really like we are doing Chelsea, or Man City, a favour unless the players play. Sure we will be paying a bit in wages but for Chelsea and Man City that would be fairly much irrelevant. Cheelsea and City both want their players to pla...

Re: Loan Signings

The Izzy Brown deal makes a lot of sense for me given that Bielsa likes to have players get used to his style and way of playing before he selects them. As such even if Brown isn't yet training fully he will still be able to watch the training sessions and get a head start in what he is expected to ...

Re: What are you doing today ?

Looking after a 2 1/2 year old and a 4 month old whilst the missus lazes in bed pretending to be poorly. 4 1/2 hrs so far of being bossed around by a non-stop toddler - counting down the seconds till the bedtime routine starts.

Lille chairman Gérard López was the guest on RMC Sport’s show ‘Footissime’ on Monday, and he revealed he was forced to part ways with Bielsa after he lost the dressing room at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. “It’s not very fair to the coach because there are dressing rooms that are behind the coach, even ...

Re: We Came Through It

I still worry about this semi-constant subbing of Klich, although Bielsa seems to know his value overall. Another conundrum! I wonder if it is an illness related thing and that he suffers from fatigue or something similar whereby his performance levels would drop off say after the 60 minute mark. I...

Re: Next six games - ROUND 2

18 points. I said last time out that the only thing that could derail us was shockingly bad refereeing and once again it happened - a great advert for the Championship and they ruin it by appointing that awful referee. We had a bit of a wobble with the injuries causing us problems and a couple of be...

Re: An Identity

I feel that if the players we have now had been playing this way for 3 or 4 years then they would look a lot more comfortable than they do now. That is where Brentford have the huge advantage as they have had the continuity of playing style for the past few seasons so naturally their players are far...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 5th Oct)

Also would suggest it is harder for a player like Forshaw to get into the game as quickly as an impact sub type of player. Forshaw is a busy player but comes on in central midfield against players who will have been playing from the start and will have got their touch and movement sorted and be at t...

Alioski offside from a goal-kick :shock:
Missed that but if true then it would be an incorrect decision by the linesman as you cannot be offside from a goal kick - unless you meant from a goalkeeper's kickout rather than an actual goal kick?

Re: Repetitive

Would certainly agree with you although I would be as concerned about Pearce and Alioski defensively too as for me Pearce looks better going forward than defending and I haven't seen enough of Alioski as a full back to judge him but would expect him to be in the same mould. Although pace is great fo...
