  1. How is this tactic coping with the new update? Been working an absolute treat for me with Newcastle so far, but I'm fearful that I'll boot FM up now and throw it all away
  2. I'll give this a whirl with Everton and let you know how I get on
  3. This looks really good, will give it a go with my Swansea team shortly. Quick (very minor) thing you may want to change on the OP though @ipswichjon2- the tactic in the link has two BWMs, not one box-to-box and one ball-winner. Will keep you posted!
  4. I really enjoyed Euro 2008 - without England so much of the usual **** was removed that the occasion itself was genuinely enjoyable. 2010 was maybe a bit dull. Euro 2016 has been a cracker though, have really enjoyed it.
  5. Completely agree with this, surprised people on this forum are quite supportive of him actually. He was woeful on 606 on 5 Live and Fletch and Sav on BT Sport is just awful as well. Really not a fan.
  6. The thing that gets me is so many games now are preceded by the same trashy dance/generic HYPE music. I don't mean 15/20 mins before kick off, but at certain PL grounds right up to kick off. Ruins any potential atmosphere, any chance of interaction between home and away support etc (but probably sounds better on TV).
  7. Good one out in the Times today I believe!
  8. We have to assume that the sole reason both are going over Drinkwater is because they are both now totally fit. If that's the case, which is the impression we're being given, then it's the correct decision. If one or both now subsequently get injured, then it's different and the knives would justifiably be out for Hodgson.
  9. Absolutely this. Roy has to pick a team that will work well together, not a squad of individuals just because they are "on form" for their clubs (something which is of exaggerated at int'l level I feel). I feel sorry for Drinkwater, but assuming they are fit, you don't need half a brain to see that Henderson and Wilshere are far better midfielders and will bring far more to the national team itself. Otherwise my only concern is a lack of wide options, but we'll see.
  10. There have got to be some decent Xhaka songs in the pipeline for next season...
  11. Look how our rivals have failed this season. Don't get me wrong - we've suffered some serious shortcomings and worst of all, most of us saw it coming. It's been a frustrating season and people are right to complain about our internal issues. But my word, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, City have absolutely failed as well. Arguably in a more emphatic way too. And despite our shortcomings, the amount of flack we've taken this season in the media just seems hugely disproportionate compared.
  12. I really want to laugh at this, but I can't. It's too sad. Sweepstake on when we're trawling back to this page in order to quote your post in the new thread?
  13. I am feeling like a proper meltdown tonight gents. I'm done if Spurs win the league this year. You really couldn't make it up. In fact you almost have to laugh, it's so tragic. What's so saddening is that this team seemed to promise so much, yet we've been let down not through an injury crisis or a big spending rich rival or a bit of misfortune but solely through our own ineptitude and our own mismanagement. And not only that but worst of all, Tottenham may very well win the league this year having done what we've been trying to do for ten years. It's devastating and ultimately the buck has to stop with the manager and the people around him. I've bought into the whole theory/philosophy or whatever it is we have been doing over the last decade but am suddenly so alienated right now. The club stinks atm, the atmosphere is woeful and it's seriously harming us across the board - fans and players are apathetic when we really have needed the complete opposite. Hard to see where to go next.
  14. Flamini isn't going to start tonight is he?
  15. We need every lifeline we can get now. Didn't see Leicester not beating WBA. As I said before, win our next three and we're on. Absolutely fundamental we do so now.
  16. Think despite everything we've got enough in us to beat Swansea at home. They are seriously **** this season. 2-0 Arsenal. Comfortable. And maybe that'll be enough to give this team the kick up the arse it badly needs to win on Saturday. Anything other than three wins from the next three games is unthinkable really, it would be a disaster.
  17. He's been in Europe 2.5 years now, hopefully it shouldn't be anything too serious if at all.
  18. Heard Debuchy was linked to Manchester Utd earlier today? Wish AW had sanctioned that if it was a goer, as a bit of revenge for Silvestre
  19. I'd like it if he played on Saturday. Hoping he doesn't enter a sulk after coming off on Sunday. This will only be a good thing if he fires them above Spurs into 4th
  20. Blackett is awful is he not? No reason to call him up at all, sorry wands
  21. Actually looking forward to this, feeling some positivity. It's not often England go into a qualifying game as underdogs and I think that'll work into our favour as long as we don't do something stupid early on. Think a win vs Switzerland would be massive, would be a big middle finger to the stirring journalists and (maybe) a bit of positivity for Woy who has taken a battering lately obviously. I'd take a draw tonight. Obviously the press won't, expect Switzerland-directed xenophobia in tomorrow's rags if we don't collect 3 points.
  22. No, I really want to agree with you here Razzler but in this instance I'm over the moon and cannot wait for a week of international football every night
  23. Anyone here able to offer an insight into what the Uruguayan press/public make of this? It must be biter-sweet (sorry) - they have qualified from a tough group having lost their opening game yet not only have they lost their best forward but they've lost him in farcical circumstances.
