With Financial Fair Play soon to be introduced, the emphasis on seeking and developing talent is sure to be far greater than before. Certainly for those clubs that don't have rights to the lucarative parachute payment handed to those who have suffered relegation from the Premier League. Meaning that many clubs are likely to be handicapped when it comes to battling it out for players on quite high wages.
There has been much discussion in recent times about racism within football, and as a football fan I think it’s important that these more political issues aren’t ignored and so recent events have prompted me to put over my view on the problems.
Not that our away form has been a bad thing, we've had a great season and picked up points but with only 13 games left can we continue to rely on the win at home point away idea? There is a four point gap and we have to try and make that up somehow.
MM suggested Taylor and Williams may both start at Boro, so perhaps we could be slightly less cagey from now on?
I think MM knows that for Murphy to continue scoring goals he needs some good service. McGoldrick could rely on his own ability a little and score from range but Murphy needs supply like Nouble provided last week, and both Taylor and Williams seem two of the most likely to create something.
Yesterday I realized how dismissive we are of people performing in the street, I know everyone has more important things to get on with but there were a couple of quite talented playing acoustically and everyone just walks past and no one acknowledges them at all. I always give them something, I admire their courage, especially considering the crap we all normally spend money on and the amount of money people spend watching the numerous amount of over-hyped artists in the charts.
I know its very premature so I don't expect you to say yes but are you thinking of doing anything on here for the World Cup? I don't really know what, but should try a sweep stake of some sort if that can be arranged, not sure how we would work it out though. Just a thought.
I know these are quite silly questions but I just wanted your thoughts on them
1). How do you think players performances would suffer if they had to wear a hoody and tracksuits instead of a football kit, should it make any difference to performance level?
2). Is there anything stopping a manager picking as many of one position in his world cup squad or are you permitted to have a certain number of players for each position, for example can you pick 9 strikers and only have 3 or 4 defenders to even it out.
3). Why do skilled players never do the skill when they catch it on the back of the neck and then run as quickly as possible to the goal flick it down again and score, no one would be able to get the ball of them.
4). If all the players were on the football pitch ready to kick off but one player refused to play, what would happen?
