Nice one, I have to say I have never been a big Arctic Monkeys fan but am really getting into AM, R u mine has now overtaken Do I wanna Know, Why do you only call me when you're high and Snap out of it as my fave track. Know much of everything everything or the foals? listening to them at the mo.
That's because they have coaches who thrive on developing talent, for pretty much every other manager there is too much pressure on results. Not that Southampton and Liverpool don't need results, but there is obviously an understanding with themselves and the owners about what the direction they want to take the club in and so are likely to be given time by owners. If managers were given more time in the modern day I would imagine we would be seeing a lot more youngsters given a chance.
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.
You could be right there, feel for him as he's such a gifted player when in top form.
I have a feeling Walcott may be back for the World Cup. I'm sure they will be doing everything possible to get him back.
I'm intrigued to see who starts on the right hand side if he can't make it though. Sterling did very well last night but I would be surprised if he started in our first game. Townsend isn't playing at Spurs though and I think there would be public outrage if Milner was to start so its up for grabs.
I know this is petty of me Vapour and without doubt you are a great man, but please spell his name right. The amount of people I've seen spell his name like that takes the biscuit.
Real shame though and he should of just gone off instead of feeling a pressure to stay on because its England. Hopefully he can get fit and really recapture his best form because he's one of the few players in the middle who can drive forward with the ball. The only other similar in that sense is Barkley.
Maybe I was being harsh, I was kind of joking, but he has seen from the outside the problems Hughes had with the team. Anyone could have seen that, and then he brings in players on high wages again. I know they're probably a club that can afford to do that and maybe other managers would do something similar with such funds available.
To me its just naive though, are players like Nick Kranjcar, Assou-Ekotto, Maiga and Benayoun really going to care playing in the Championship.
This actually makes me quite angry thinking about it, I don't think Luke Young has been in their matchday squad this season and is on about Â£30k a week. Signing someone like Benayoun is just bizarre, Hughes' problem was signing disinterested players on big wages who were well past their past, and then Redknapp signs Benayoun. A player who has had injury problems and hasn't done anything for four seasons, yep nice one Harry!
You can't just buy your way out of the Championship, we've seen that with previous managers. We have a team where every player gives everything and that's what you need. Burnley have been another great example of this.
