    Hahaha I look forward to Hope and Brewster playing for England and getting bought for £19m then mate, must be a matter of time. Chelsea wanted to keep him by the way, they offered him more money than Liverpool I believe, but he wanted to play...

    Are you for real? His was hilarious and included him scoring an own goal.

    Make your mind up mate. You’ve just said Chelsea have a great youth set up and can attract the best players, but now you want to say that their best player wasn’t actually good, it was just the media. And Southgate picks players for England based...

    So you agree he was rated more highly then. Glad we cleared that one up.

    It's hardy as "gash" as the Turkish league, come on. It is of a lower standard right now certainly. It doesn't matter where a player comes from anyway, if they are good they are good, just don't look at the players based purely on stats and...

    It's not just about that tournament though. Cameron's right, Solanke was definitely rated more highly than DCL as a junior, he won the u17 tournament too, and the FA Youth Cup, and the Youth Champions League or whatever it was called, and I think...

    Exactly. He's a big oaf of a centre half with no pace, no ability to read the game, and very basic qualities with the ball at his feet, and yet people want us to buy a big grock to play next to him so they can tell him what to do. Absolutely...

    He's midtable fodder and it's one of the reasons we'll stay midtable fodder next year with the likes of this wet wipe as a mainstay in the side

    shouldn't he be the dominating one, he's certainly not the cultured one.

    That's never been how we do things though! If we'd been going out and signing £70m CL quality players then our wage bill wouldn't be an issue. It is, because we've been spending £30m on bottom half PL players instead. Our model is to move away...

    Exactly. Bringing in young players does not mean that we're only going to be buying from other clubs' U23 squads. It just means that we won't be looking at players who will demand wages in the £100K+ p/w bracket as if they don't work out they're...

    Lanolin replied to the thread 2018/19 Jordan Pickford.
    I didn’t take issue with the use of ‘statustics’, I took issue with the use of a specific stat, in which the total number of saves made by a player who played 7 games was beung compared to a load of players who only played 3. It had been...

    Yeah, you don't really need to have been hearing it for a while to be honest, it's what Moshiri broadcast to the world at the AGM. It's the wages that are the issue, which is why Richarlison isn't really in that bracket. What Moshiri was saying...

    Imagine taking umbrage at someone checking that their memory wasn't playing tricks on them by googling something and mentioning it. I've said before I thought he had a good world cup, I even started my comments on here by saying I could see both...

    Lanolin replied to the thread Summer Transfer Window 2019.
    I'm not sure that's true. I've said before that the comments Moshiri made at the AGM have seemingly been taken hugely out of context. There was nothing to suggest that our future model would be any different to the one employed last summer. I...
