  1. Have to agree about Greenwood - having 1 point less finishing than Aguero, Mane and Aubameyang and equal with Vardy and Son already is way too much - he's already got a higher finishing attribute than Abraham as well despite being nowhere near as proven before this summer. I would have expected his finishing attribute to be closer to 11 or 12 at this stage of his career. 16 is definitely far too high for someone who has still not even scored a PL goal - that's a golden boot-chasing PL finishing rating. I don't doubt the kid has potential, but there's some extremely high attribute ratings fo
  2. I always used to think about "Legends" as people I could see us naming a stand of the stadium after - Vardy, Vichai, Ranieri, Lineker (in fact I think a stand at the Walkers stadium when it was first built was called the Lineker Stand for a couple of seasons), Banks, Rowley and Chandler - I could absolutely see. Kingy I'm not so sure - it's difficult because he was such an incredible servant to the club and to win 3 league titles was ridiculous, but I think we would all agree he's not necessarily as great a player as the others mentioned. I'd just lower his rating from 20 to 19 maybe so he's a
  3. I'm not sure whether throwing is about accuracy not strength. I can't remember now how is used to be. Kicking always used to be about distance and not accuracy though and that definitely is way too low for Schmeichel, I admit I was surprised his Kicking stat has been lowered so much to 12 - it's been a few years since I was researcher now - but I used to have his kicking as his highest attribute on 18 or 19 or something as he has one hell of a kick on him and can comfortably and has comfortably reached the edge of the opposition box without the ball bouncing from his own penalty area wit
  4. I didn't think it was originally and when I saw the far away replays in real time it doesn't look like it, but when they do the slow motion and close up you can see his hand clearly move towards the dip of the ball and not just his arm naturally coming down from the downward momentum of a jump. It's intuition/muscle memory rather than conscious thought, but it's still a deliberate action. So yeah, great decision for me - I wouldn't have said so originally but the VAR review confirmed it should have been for me.
  5. Nah. I used to like him before the beard, but I'm not into the big beard look and I don't think it suits him at all even if I was. It's more his smile and voice and personality I think. It's true he's not conventionally attractive but there's just something about him.
  6. I can't be bothered to find pictures, but I really like Antoinne Griezmann, Christian Eriksen and Gylfi Sigurdsson. Think Jack Butland, Eric Dier and Dele Alli are cute from the England players too (though Lallana is the hottest England player when he's there).
  7. Italy haven't got great players either atm but they do bring the best out of them by fitting them into s coherent system which brings out the player's strengths and covers their weaknesses. We've just won the league with 4 English players (5 if you include one who plays for Jamaica through his grandmother) who were all previously pretty unfancied havjng fantastic seasons because we put them into a system which brought out their strengths and covered their weaknesses. The "players aren't good enough" excuse is an absolute cop out. We have a huge pool of players. We could have found the player
  8. A joke surely? Another product of the FA's "system" is the last thing we need. Much less a proven failure. Gary Neville and nothing will change - the squad will be picked on who you play for regardless of how injured, out of form or over-the-hill you are. We need someone completely divorced from the FA's "system" who isn't a lackey of the big clubs who can shake it up. Neville and Southgate are the last 2 people I want to see replace Roy.
  9. If Rooney has any sense of self awareness he'll retire from international football the decking this game ends.
  10. You're kidding right? We barely tested their goalkeeper. All England did was pass it sideways across midfield for most of the game them take aimless long shots. It was hardly spineless from Slovakia, England's creativity was so poor that was all they really had to do to stop us. If anything it was more of a spineless performance from England, we just didn't look like we wanted to actually try some risky passes forwards to try create anything. We were just as conservative in possession than Slovakia were out of it.
  11. It's Barkley who shouldn't have gone. Henderson at least has a chance of playing. Barkley is what? 4th choice #10 behind Alli, Rooney and Lallana? And that's even if we play with a #10. When you think we're short of centre backs, defensive midfielders and wingers, Barkley, as 4th choice attacking midfielder who had virtually no chance of getting a game is a complete waste of a spot in the squad.
  12. Have you blocked the last few years from your memory? It's better than anything since 2006.
  13. Especially when they're always crap. He must be amazing at them in training or something because I don't think anyone understands it.
