    2022/23 Tom Davies

    Has a use a sitting no.6, any other role is beyond his abilities (least at this level). I'm happy to keep him around as Gueye's understudy but Lampard quickly needs to learn he's not sort of player you send on to get a grip of a midfield. Would have preferred to see some of Garner today (he's...

    2022/23 Dwight McNeil

    Definitely not for me, Gordon IMO has offered lots more but hey ho. He just loses possession and slows down attacks far too often for my liking.

    2022/23 Dwight McNeil

    Don't be overly dramatic. He loses the ball more than any player in the team and his set pieces have been mostly poor as well. It's time McNeil got a run in the starting line-up, that's the gist of my point.

    2022/23 Dwight McNeil

    Should start vs United. Gray has offered nothing so far this season and deserves to be dropped.

    2022/23 Dwight McNeil

    Was stuck out on the right which isn't his position. Needs to be better in posession but his set pieces are far better than Gray's. There is a player in there.

    Gray is rubbish. Sell.

    2022/23 Allan

    Wish him all the best, seemed a very good character and always gave a good effort. First season under Ancelotti he looked a cracking player. In the end he was as big a victim of all the upheavel as anyone. Constantly put in midfielder in systems that didn't suit him and with partners who...

    Homepage Article 7 Points After Seven

    We'll get 40 points fairly comfortably, just to finish top half you need well over 50. I'd be very happy with that figure, would mean a solid season with no concerns. Then push on towards the 60 mark next year hopefully. Last season was just a perfect storm. Worst injury record in the league...

    2022/23 Amadou Onana

    Looks a cracking personality this fella, has looked really effective in the midfield as well now he's up to speed. We're building a young, hungry group and it's really good to see. Just need to make sure we don't expect too much too soon.

    2022/23 Asmir Begovic

    Robles was an odd one, he'd look great one game then appalling the next. Weird player. Begovic if I'm honest I don't like, decent shot stopper but his feet are too slow. I hope we never have to use him again.

    Appalling when he came on, rusty or not. Just don't rate him.

    Postponment of Premier League fixtures due to the death of Her Majesty the Queen.

    Who cares if we're slammed. The media hates us anyway, but at least I'd rather have peoppe hating us than just be viewed as utterly irrelevant like we have been for the best part of 3 decades.

    Postponment of Premier League fixtures due to the death of Her Majesty the Queen.

    People should honour the minute's silence, only a scumbag would try to ruin one of them, but playing the God Save The King? Absolutely no chance, P right off with that. I'm a Republican and that will never change. This fella is absolutely not anymore important than me, you or anyone else and I...

    2022/23 Michael Keane

    Was seemingly on a one man mission to relegate us last season, he should never play for senior team again. This is his sixth season, across the previous 5 if you added up all of his good performances you'd get about 50 something. About a season and a half, out of five?! Urgh. Awful buy, can't...

    Duncan Ferguson Moving On

    Probably should have taken Dundee's offer. I know it's very small time but he needs a gig where they'll be little spotlight and low expectations, his personality means he won't cope in a pressure enviroment. A few solid years in the SPL would put him in contention for the Rangers job, or...

    Transfer Rumour Ross Barkley

    He'll go to SPL and pretend he's still got a serious career like Joe Hart. Can't see MLS, imagine such a dunce having to set himself up out there on his own. When he'd go shopping it would be like Mr Burns in the Simpsons.

    2022/23 Dwight McNeil

    I've noticed that people on social media have been pooing on him a fair bit since the season started and it's completely unwarranted. He's a new player who is still learning about his team-mates, in a side where he's had no striker to aim for, and is clearly playing catch up fitness-wise. Get...

    Transfer Rumour Ben Brereton Diaz

    He could be just a striker who is blossoming now he's well into his 20s, but likewise he could have just had a really good few months like Dominic Calvert-Lewin had under Ancelotti, or Jelavic under Moyes. It's hard to tell. Throwing him in our starting line-up and expecting him deliver us goals right from the...

    2022/23 Dele Alli

    Only if we cover the difference in wages. Even if still have to pay the bulk of them, getting him gone for at least a year saves us having to pay that £10m in several weeks. I'm not sure how it's structured for us to have to remain the remaining £30m but the scenario that would need to come...
