    I agree. Have him on the subs bench and bring him on if desperate. He can be anonymous in games as he is a player who needs service to do well.

    Mistake. He's not match fit. It matters not how many training sessions completed he'll be off the pace. Edit; cue hat trick next week.

    Brexit

    It looks like she's trying again to pass her deal. It's failed 3 times and will fail this time. What is she thinking? Surely she will be gone soon. But then who? Johnson?

    Chelsea have had their transfer ban upheld by FIFA. They can't sign players for 2 transfer windows. If Hazard decides to leave they will be in real trouble.

    Last night's game was fantastic. Football doesn't get much better than that. Although Ajax are 1-0 up Spurs could still win it. They blasted City in the last round, and have Son back tonight. I'm not bothered who goes through. Ajax have been a joy to watch though.

    This board is predominantly remain. You will get questioned on your viewpoint as most on here don't agree with you. You've not made any points at all lately, only one liners with no substance. I understand that it is hard when there are more against your position than for it. As for the vote, yes leave won, but it was non-binding therefore up to elected officials to deal with it how they saw fit. They've managed to make a complete pig's ear of it. It's also become apparent - March 29th came and went - that the economic harm will outweigh the benefits. The EMA has already gone. Banks are moving. Car manufacturers are threatening to as well. MP's should vote in the best interests of their constituents. Leaving the EU will hurt, not help, more leave voters. As gumboots, myself, and others on here have said, the blame should reside with Westminster, not the EU. Properly fund and plan for areas north of Watford.

    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    Before any players are signed Mowbray needs to review his fitness staff. The last 15 minute goals against stat that was posted a month or so ago shows to me that the team isn't fit enough. After that bring in a central defender. Gary Cahill anyone?

    Cardiff are 3-1 down at home to Palace. Unless they perform a minor miracle in the last 10 minutes they will be relegated. I'm half watching it. They have nobody who can score. Would Sala have made a difference?

    Absolutely right. Unfortunately leaving the EU would make the problem worse not better for the North. It's not the EU's fault, it's the British government that should be blamed. Northern town and cities need sustained investment in housing and transportation to allow them to catch up. Was HS3 supposed to link Hull to Liverpool? Decent rail links plus branch lines connecting the region to Liverpool-Manchester-Leeds-Sheffield-Hull would be a good start.

    Agreed. They had Barcelona on the ropes even at 1-0 down. Fabinho wasn't his usual self. He contributed to the last 2 Barcelona goals. He tackled Messi for the 2nd, but it turned into a through ball for Suarez, and he gave away the free kick for the 3rd. Dembele's miss in the last second was horrendous. He skied an easy chance before that too. There's always a chance that Liverpool can claw it back. Roma did it to Barcelona last year, but I can't see Liverpool doing it though. However, I suspect we'll see the worst of Barcelona next week. Fouls, diving, time wasting, feigning injury, anything to put Liverpool out of their rhythm. Sturridge was that extra striker but is a shadow of his former self. Injuries? Inability to fit into Klopp's style?

    The Dutch league cancelled their program last weekend to give Ajax time to prepare, whilst Spurs sputtered against West Ham. Pochettino had a good moan about it. The Ajax manager's retort was along the lines of well we can't compete with your budget so have to find other ways of levelling the playing field.

    Me either.

    They have. They started like a house on fire last night. Spurs didn't know what to do. In the end they were lucky to only lose 1-0. Spurs were a bit toothless up front, but that was unsurprising with both Kane and Son out. Pochettino will have them ready next week, but Ajax are a talented bunch. Any news on Vertongen? He was ready to go back on then his legs buckled.

    That happened to me too. I didn't move either. People there said it sounded like a gunshot. I broke 2 lads legs, not compound like mine but breaks all the same. Both were without intent and innocuous challenges too. I'm still baffled how one of them happened nearly 30 years later. I am with the majority that the ball should not be put out of play for "injuries". Carry on playing. Players and refs usually know when someone is really hurt. A lack of movement, concern from those close by, players not lying on their front, and not clutching their face. If it's serious the ref will blow their whistle.

    I said his first half season. Surviving was the intent. After that Hughes played some good stuff. I watched a good portion of games that season. It wasn't a myth; Prem card stats 2004-2005 6 reds, 1 less than league leading Fulham. 79 yellows, 18 more than 2nd place Newcastle. The big difference is that Allardyce managed Blackburn Rovers, the team I support. Watching Burnley do it is painful.
