    Celebrity Deaths

    Michael Jordan level is a bit extreme, but he is a huge figure in the sport and in world sport. I'm not someone who gets particularly impacted by celebrity deaths, it is always sad, but then it is not as if they are my friends or family. That being said, as someone who grew up in America, Kobe Bryant was the first young athlete I really related to. Up until that moment, everyone had always seen so much older, but I was 9 when he came into the league straight out of high school and so it was the first time that I felt as if an athlete was young/similar to my own age. That has made his death rather odd to think about.

    January transfer window 2020

    Our last stint in the Championship should have told us that you don't get that many chances to go up. There are a lot of seasons where you aren't in and around the playoffs. Look at Derby. They've gone from being arguably the second-best side in the league to a team that needs a small miracle to even make the playoffs. There's no guarantee that we will be a win or two off the playoffs next January. Other sides might get better. All 3 promoted sides might perform well. We might have more injuries. We are there now and there is every chance that the right player or two could significantly increase our chances. Anyone arguing that we should keep our powder dry might well find that they have saved our resources for a rainy day.

    I thought he was totally decent. Too many people have their minds made up about him and it would take a run of 20 incredible performances to change that. I thought it was a good return from injury and, hopefully, he can keep improving. Not sure why so many want to see him fail. Will be end up justifying the fee? Don't know. Could we have done something better with the money? Probably. But does he look like he could be a useful player to have a round? Quite possibly.

    No, because I don't spend all day staring at boobs.

    Some things (most things) are bigger than football. I am happy to have Southgate in charge. I think he has totally changed that attitude of the England team and players and I am proud to have someone like him in charge when dealing with such an important moment in English/European/World football. If nothing else we can guarantee that he will always conduct himself with a degree of class and intelligence. That is a wonderful example to set.

    The only issue Liverpool will have is that their squad is not that big. They are one or two injuries away from finding it seriously difficult to beat decent sides and the CL schedule will test the depths of their squad (their group situation is already one that will mean that they won't be able to rest players until the final group game at best). It is definitely theirs to lose now, but I think it is far too early to assume that they will just put up 95+ points again. Still have to play City twice, still have plenty of games against other tough opponents, and still have to manage their squad size.
  9. I would play Downing as a left wingback.
  10. Might see us make the full switch to three at the back (which I would be in favour of).

    Actually, your children have everything to do with this debate.

    No, that is a perfect example of how VAR isn't being used properly. You can't flag someone offside and then overrule it when players had a chance to react or take into account the fact that the flag has gone up. Assistants need to be put their flags up late or just leave it to VAR. I don't think it had a huge impact on the goal last night, but there were definitely players involved who had seen the flag go up before the goal was scored. You could even argue that it might help the attacking players mindset - with him thinking that it is something of a free shot at goal that doesn't matter.

    Or we thought it was worth taking a punt on a player who has struggled with injuries, but are being cautious with his development?

    I don't understand this debate. Chapman's career has been derailed (saying derailed to a player who never established himself is already kind) by injuries. He has joined us permanently with the first focus being on making sure that he is fully fit and able to have a sustained period of availability. Good for him that he's managed to string a good month together, but there's no point giving him gametime only for him to break down in his second game. After proving that he can play for a sustained period of time, he then has to prove that he is good enough to be ahead of certain players. I am sure that he gets this. I am sure that the squad gets this.

    I always thought he was decent at spurs and that level is more than good enough for us. Has said all the right things. Seems to have matured and turned into a true pro. Hopefully he could be a good influence on our squad. I sometimes fear that we have a bit of a wide boy culture, so adding a serious pro with a good pedigree could be just what we need.
