Shout out to Lee Evans....
at 01:18 31 Jul 2022

Thought he had a decent game today. His first game in a while.
Not easy coming back from a long term injury.
Pleased he came through it unscathed. Against a physical Bolton side.
Heard more comments on here about a wayward freekick, than the actual goal he scored.
He gets a pat on the back, from me.

Goal scoring midfielders.....
at 00:31 23 Jul 2022

We had a few over the years, that chipped in regularly with goals. Names that spring to mind for me, are Tommy Miller, Matt Holland and of course John Wark.
Towards the end of last season, we saw Morsy getting up the pitch more, taking up some really good positions. A "Warkesque" late arrival into the box. And chipping in with a few goas. As well as missing a few chances, too.
Looks like Sammy has been working on his end product. Tucking away some neat finishes in pre-season.
We all know how driven he is. Got a feeling he's really worked on that part of his game. Either ,off of his own back, or a nudge from KM..
I'm going to stick my neck out and predict 15 goals from Sammy this season, in all competitions. All going well with fitness..
Perhaps wishful thinking on my part. But with our playing patterns being more finely tuned under KM , now. And from what Sammy showed back end of last season and this pre season. I think it's doable.
With the likes of Ladapo, Jackson, Burns, Chaplin, Harness, Aluko etc ,all causing problems for defenders. I've got a feeling that Sammy ,will be ghosting in , and clocking up a fare few goals over the course of the season..

Kyle Edwards...
at 23:00 13 Jul 2022

Anyone else out there think that Edwards could play the 10 (inside left) role?.. Assuming we are writing off the Celina thing and we could, yet, miss out on a different target... Personally, don't think it's the end off the world, if that were to happen.. With, both , Edwards and Humphrey's in the frame. There's some good young talent there, already in the building...

I'm all for equality...But...?
at 13:48 12 Jul 2022

I can't get my head around the "England's record scorer" tag, which Ellen White will no doubt be given, after a couple more goals in an England Women's shirt..
Quotes, such as "beating Wayne Rooney's record"....?
I'm sorry if this offends.. But surely, men's and women's, record, should be separate?
Especially when you get 20-0 score lines in the Women's International game? And regularly see 7-8-9 goal score lines?
No doubt Ellen White, is a great female player. . But, at what level , in the men's game, would someone like Ellen, be able to perform?
The BBC and the PC mob can dress it up how they like.. But for me. There should be separate records charts in Mens, Womens football... Some of the Women's opposition, in recent years, has been woeful.. I've no doubt that someone like Rooney, Charlton, Kane, Owen, Lineaker etc.. Would be into the 100's , if they were playing against the same standard opposition....
Anyway, I'll probably get downvoted, by a few people for this post.. Just airing an opinion..

That'll hurt Derby. Losing their skipper and one of their best players.. Don't know if there was a fee, doesn't say on BBC site..

Some help needed???

Can't seem to log into the Season Tickets sales section on the club site.... Don't suppose anyone else could give it a go from their device and post up if they were successful...? Not clear whether its my PC or the club site that has an issue.. Cheers..
Could be that they are working on the site to affiliate the new fixtures I suppose?

Erling Haaland..
at 01:38 14 Jun 2022

Huge fan of Haaland.. The kid is a beast. Physically, he reminds me of Drogba in his prime You knew he was going to be something special, when he was banging in Champions League goals for fun, as a teenager, for RB Salzburg... £51 M, for a 21 year old phenomenon, on a 5 year deal.. That's like, the deal of the century, for City, imo... Assuming they both stay fit, you can see De Bruyne pulling the strings and Haaland scoring for fun next season... Some players take a bit of adjusting to The Prem'.. Can't see that being a problem to Haaland. He's a physical specimen. And he could be, the final piece to Man Cities, Champions league, jigsaw, too.... They are going to take some stopping with their new boy on board.... We've had the Messi/ C Ronaldo debate forever.. I guess now , it's the Mbappe-Haaland debate for the next decade... For me, I'd rather have Haaland in my team, if I had to chose between the two.. He's got everything, and he's quick for a big guy, too. Very quick.. Looking forward to seeing him play, in The Prem'.. Think he's going to rip it up..

Defensive Midfield..
at 00:32 2 Jun 2022

With Ball's arrival, along with Morsy, Evans and El Miz (as back up).. Does anyone think we need another DM Fielder? ... In an ideal world with no long term injuries to these players, we look pretty sorted imo... My only concerns are Evans fitness and full recovery, and Morsy's disciplinary record... All squads get stretched at some point in the season.. But do you think we are covered in that position now?... Where does Harper come into the fray..?.. Have to say , Morsy, Ball and Evans, if available for selection, is not too shabby choice for L1 side. Imo.

Bakinson? Cellina? Any news ?....
at 18:07 2 May 2022

I'm assuming that Bakinson's and Santi's loan deals would have expired now... We got a thank you, goodbye from Thomson... Nothing , yet from these two.... I'll be quite pleased if they both stay on... I'm gonna take the "no news is good news" attitude, for now...
