  1. Aye, he's been tendon not to score many goals.
  2. I think the media is becoming worse than ever for blowing hot and cold with teams/managers. Same in England, if not worse: the likes of Arteta and Lampard have been variously hailed as the next big thing/slammed depending on their last result. Same with Solskjaer - obviously they're doing ok at the minute but he's been great then shit then great then shit and now great again. A couple months back and I'd read Mourinho was bringing the title to Spurs finally. The guy at Southampton whose name I can't spell was the latest in the Southampton manager factory line, but now they can't buy a win and got horsed 9-0 for the second time in two years. As you say, it's important to judge actual success over a season.
  3. What a comeback. What a performance. What a run. What an assist. What an example. What a player.
  4. Yeah, Foley was quite Hodson-eque in terms of the range of positions he could cover. At least Flynn is back, and the CM area doesn't look quite so light when we're playing 4-4-2. Agree on the other two, too.
  5. It was 100% true. Sadly, it was an article from November 2019.
  6. Was about to say that if someone comes in at CH then I think Foley will almost certainly be away. Understandable that we'd hang onto him until a replacement is in the door.
  7. This moneybox. Belonged to my Grampa, who brainwashed me to be a Saints fan. After he died in 1998, it stayed on my Gran's shelf until she passed away in 2014. We opened it to find a solitary £1 note 😂 I also love my 87 cup final scarf, which is incredibly tatty now but I don't dare wash it in case the text comes off.
  8. IIRC did Morias not come in at a point at the start of last season when we were clearly panicking a bit about signings? Happy to be corrected, but I'm sure there was a point when we were behind the curve and we may have briefly lowered our standards to fill the squad. See also: Oan Djorkaeff.
  9. If you could combine Morias' strength, speed and application with McAllister's talent, you'd have one hell of a player on your hands. Shame.
  10. Good. I hope Mason is enjoying himself. I think that's the biggest issue for loan players in the current climate: can't be easy being away from home for a long time while you can't socialise (even if he can't socialise in Coventry, either, I'd imagine it'd be tempting to conflate the two.)
  11. Looks like we've acted properly since discovering the problem: we alerted the relevant authorities asap while we investigate. Given that it doesn't concern playing or management staff, I have to imagine the sums involved will be relatively minor; we can settle up and move on.
  12. He'd be an upgrade on Magennis, to be fair.
  13. He reads the game well, is great on the ball and is deceptively mobile. Great signing. Be wonderful if we could extend his contract but we're going to have some major competition for that, sadly. Erhahon and Doyle-Hayes now first choice in the middle, for me, with Cammy not far behind. Nice problem to have.
