    Top 4 Champions League Race

    With all the focus at the moment being on unsavoury hatred from that lot about Pickford’s clumsy challenge I thought we needed a different topic so who else believes we can make the top 4 this season? Five games into the season and we’re top of the league, won four and drawn one. Long way to go...

    Man City Banned From Europe

    Just breaking now, Man City banned for 2 years from European competition... Extra space for us to take advantage of? Potentially a fire sale we could benefit from?

    The Worst Season I’ve EVER Endured

I’m 29 so I’ve never seen us win anything and I live down south so don’t go to that many games but I’ve seen every minute of every game this season live and mostly whilst also being in the matchday thread here.

    Firstly, it's important that anyone who isn't sad enough to trawl through 140 odd pages of (mostly) rubbish sees this quote from our new signing- "Niasse is strong, Niasse is tall. If nothing's going right, give Niasse the ball and he won't let you down. What other forwards can do, Niasse can...

    Two CDMs at home against the lesser teams?

    After every game in recent memory where we've failed to break down a stubborn defence the question was always asked 'why do we play with two defensive midfielders every game?'. It seems only fair that after 10 goals in the last two home matches with Barry and McCarthy playing both we ask the...

    433 genius!

    Martinez with a tactical masterclass today. Naismith through the center with Mirallas cutting in from the left and Lukaku cutting in from the right was ingenious! How nice is it to have a manager with tactical flair, willing to take a risk and try something different in the big matches?

    Communication

    I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet but I for one am delighted at the level of communication we are receiving from Martinez. Last night the rumour came out that we had bid for McCarthy and of course we were worried that this could mean Fellaini was on his way out. First thing...
