Call me old-fashioned, I like to see a striker put his laces through it and the net bulge.

I guess that technique is why Armstrong is no longer Championship at best? Funny thing about Scotland. They produce some decent strikers on a technical level but going back 30 years none of them are prolific. Even old Naismith was technically sound. Remember the Chelsea game? But they never seem to hit double figures in a season.

Watched Villa last night. Southampton were worth the points but what was interesting was how Everton-like Villa played.
Defended very deep. Who does Mings thing he is? McGinn lost without Grealish and trying to run the midfield on his own – never an easy task. Watkins isolated and frustrated. Manager "not making excuses", but highlighted injuries and having 3 academy graduates on the bench. Very familiar sound! Were it not for their very impressive keeper, the scoreline would have been higher.
Just shows that signings need to fit the model, not just be showcase or have £££ attached for marketing purposes. Villa built their style around Grealish. Bailey may have been a lot of people's choice, but he's no replacement in that sense.

Grealish is a special player who can't be replaced, not by a club like Villa anyway. With all due respect to great club with real history.
I think we're all that desperate for something to happen that we 'latch-on' to players we missed out on and convince ourselves that HE would have made the difference. Even as far back as 2007 when some on here were bemoaning the fact that Pompey signed David Nugent and we didn't. Look what he went on to do...not much.
Although Carragher made a great point a while ago in saying that, "you're never as far ahead or as far behind as you think you are."
Imagine if we signed a great RB and a dominant midfield player who could pass and score a few to go alongside Doucoure!! With almost everyone fit, we'd suddenly look like a different team. Just like Liverpool did when Suarez hit form along with Sturridge and Liverpool went from 7th to very nearly winning the League. The season after, minus Suarez, Liverpool finished 6th.

De Gea poor on that one, but if it weren't for him this would be 0-5.

City totally dominant today. United players looked lost at the end. As they did through during most of the game. Sat deep and were outplayed.
22 Posted 06/11/2021 at 14:48:37
Is it Jeff, I thought that was outside the City too - or maybe it was back when the club was based there??
I have to admit my knowledge of Manchester is limited - just in case it wasn't obvious! :-)

Newton Heath is an area of Manchester, England, 2.8 miles (4.5 km) north-east of Manchester city centre and with a population of 9,883. Newton included what is now Miles Platting and it stretched to Failsworth. It was bounded by brooks and rivers on all four sides — the River Medlock, Moston Brook, Newton Brook and Shooters Brook. With the creation of Miles Platting the remainder of Newton became known as Newton Heath. The parish was the birthplace of the Newton Heath Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Football Club which was established in 1878 and later became Manchester United. It began life as a football team formed by Frederick Attock a Liverpudlian, who was a superintendent engineer of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway (L&YR). The team played on a pitch at North Road, and were initially outfitted in green and gold jerseys. By 1892, they had been admitted to the Football League. The club remained in the area until 1893, when it moved to new premises at Bank Street in nearby Clayton. The name was changed to Manchester United Football Club in 1902.

Amazing the bets you can do on line now, well amazing to me, when Ronaldo hit that shot on target, my grandson sitting watching with me said “That Ronaldo effort has just won me £20.”
Online, they were offering even money for Ronaldo to have a shot on target at anytime during the game, maximum bet was £20, so Sonny had a score on it. Never put me wise to it until after he had won, I would have had 50p myself on that, maybe even 75p!!

I don't always agree with Shearer and he went a bit over the top in my opinion, but he was bang on about Man City.
One of the fundamentals of coaching, especially young players. You have to work harder off the ball than you do on it. And despite their undoubted talent, that's what Man City do. It's what Liverpool do. Be that pressing to win the ball back or making runs to make space.
And how high up the pitch do they play? And often, it starts with their keeper on the edge of the own box as opposed to being camped 6 inches from his own goal line.
31 Posted 06/11/2021 at 23:44:05
If a team with more than one mediocre player (which is the other 17 in our Premier League) try to press that far up the pitch, they more likely than not get ripped a new one if they fail to immediately win the ball back.

I wasn't convinced previously and I'm less so now.
I appreciate he's playing in a poor team, but his positional awareness doesn't look great.
Almost played the Brentford striker onside for the disallowed goal. He got away with that as he was way behind the rest of his defence. Got sucked into tracking and following way too central for the actual goal, when he should have passed the player on to a centre back and gone to close the eventual goal scorer who had pulled off wide and was the right back's real responsibility. Poor clearance at the end that could have cost his team 2 points.
Like I say, not watched him a lot, just heard a lot on here rate him highly.
What a line from the commentator at Chelsea v Burnley: "Barkley, should be, wasn't".
Could have won it. Got hooked and Burnley equalise. Kind of sums up our Ross.

I'm not sure what time you're winging in today or your matchday ritual. I'll be in The Crown midday-ish if you're about. Coyb.

They are now everything that I wish Everton were or even came close to maybe being within the next year, but won't be.

Something we haven't known for years at Everton. Not just Benitez but Pepe, Klopp, Tuchel and Conte would get this crass Everton squad Top 4. The People's Club is pitiful. Will we ever see Everton play in the Champions League?

Same mate. Once in a while I'm tempted to check in on them but invariably Salah immediately dives and gets a penalty so I turn it off.
This game though had that edge to it. The Hammers fans were really up for it and created a great atmosphere despite being in what my Hammers mate calls “a not-fit-for-purpose stadium”.
Also, having watched the RS vs Brentford game and this one, it appears the RS don't like fast counter-attacks with people running at them right down the middle. They are adept at handling threats from the wing but, if you charge right down the middle, they seem to fall apart. That and of course aim the corners and crosses directly at Allison.
