    Best 11 of the last 20 years (in theory)

    Baines an Pienaar have to be the left sided pairing. A joy to watch and unplayable on their day. Richarlison would probably be on the right for me with Cahill off Lukaku up front. Then has to be Jags and Coleman at the back with Lescott and Baines. No Rooney for me on the basis we never saw his...

    Weak and and Feeble

    Only scoring 11 in the second half needs to change. Cracking first 45 effort though. We clearly have complacent players at the mo.

    2019/20 Jordan Pickford

    He is like a hyperactive jack in the box when there is any sort of danger around. No calmness whatsoever..

    The 2020 Squad Analysis Thread

    If you looked at this another way and put down a category for leadership skills, how many would you categorise as potential captains? Maybe Digne at a push? (and I mean proper leadership skills, not Delph or Pickford style shouting when they do not perform consistently themselves) I think...

    (sighs) yes, yes it is. We'll pointed out. Would much prefer people to talk about the club and topic than the poster, but if thats his style then fine. Pipe is down. (But I refuse to remove my slippers)

    Or trading debate on a forum. (Which is what I believe it is for, not slagging people off)

    Nope. I think we need to strengthen to avoid getting drawn into a relegation battle with so many teams so close at the bottom and a tricky run of fixtures. What is so hard to understand about that?

    The Relegation Thread

    You have nailed my point. (which is now mainly lost in the transfer thread). Last night I got called sanctimonious for praising the performance. But it was our best performance for a long time and it also proved what we all knew anyway which was that we have mentally weak players. Let's add some...

    Appreciate your opinion on the quality of the teams, but we are below all but two of them. Don't call me an idiot, let's keep it to trading opinions, not insults

    Based on what!? Bar Watford, Chelsea and Southampton, we haven't beaten a single other team in the list. And we play Watford and Chelsea away. Really admire the confidence.

    The Relegation Thread

    Only because we sacked our manager and changed something. My point is that I think we need some fresh faces to change things up to enable us to get a few more positive results amongst those fixtures. For the record, I don't think we'll go down, but I am saying I don't want to get dragged into...

    Takes players time to get up to speed. We won't see the best of them again til April. Out of interest: How many points can we get from the next 10 with no additions? We have to play Arsenal, Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool, Spurs, Leicester, Southampton, Norwich after our next two of Watford away...

    Thanks for that, but my original point was that if we didn't strengthen in the window, we could find ourselves in a relegation battle if the teams below strengthened.

    OK. If you say so. Who is involved in the relegation battle then?

    January Transfer Thread 2020

    What odds were we to draw last night when the clock ticked onto the 93rd minute? I asked the question if people thought we were safe at the moment. Clearly people do, however I think we need to strengthen in the window to completely ensure this and not just assume we have already done enough...

    I don't see 42 points being enough to stay up this season.

    January Transfer Thread 2020

    No, I am merely making the point that there is a relegation battle involving about 10 teams, most of which have already or will look to strengthen this window. If we don't, we may be putting ourselves in a dangerous situation. Watford and Southampton looked doomed a few weeks ago. Southampton...

    I can't see Norwich getting past us, but any of the rest could.

    January Transfer Thread 2020

    Do people believe we are safe at the moment? The way things are going you will need well over 40 points to stay up I reckon. Surely we need some new faces to ensure we don't get dragged into the mire?...
