Is fairly damning on Lambert and (less so) Hurst for so rarely or never using him on the left hand side of attack. It's been a baffling issue for a lot of fans and presumably the player himself almost since he joined us.
He's quite handy grabbing goals at the back post when playing on the right but I don't remember previously seeing him scoring goals out of nothing like he has today.

with commentators almost cheekily suggesting players should go down after they've been touched in the box?
Sam Matterface the latest offender while watching the Calvert-Lewin just now. It's this kind of sht that encourages the behaviour.

Why does he let those crosses go? Same as the West Ham one they scored from.
Also batted a hand at another one and got away with it.

Been massively lacking for almost as long as I can remember and I've always felt it's been an oversight on the clubs behalf.
It's nice to see us taking an interesting approach and taking someone on who hasn't just been around the same old english leagues and academies. Could go either way because he's not played much more than a handful of games all in all, but from everything we can tell so far he fits the bill for what we need. Love a left footer as well.
Very happy with this one. Whatever you think about Lambert, his record of signings is fairly good, so I'm confident.

Anyone else think he's a bit of a class act?

Please tell me there's a way to turn this terrible crowd noise off?!
It's annoying, drowns out the commentary and it's also unrealistic.

Whether he had a poor season or not (he did), absolutely no one in our squad can cross a ball like he's just done to put it on a plate for Drinan. Maybe should have scored but he got good contact and it was a good save.
Judge doing things like that is why he's still here and why he still gets picked. Pass of the match.

Pretty happy with yesterday's news, on paper.
As much as we all want a number one between the sticks for the whole season, it won't happen. There'll be injuries, loss of form, maybe a red card somewhere. We needed a number two, and everything you hear suggests neither Przybek nor Wright are it.
Physicality and experience were two big things needed this summer. It looks like we've got a good mix of the two in Ward and Hawkins. Can't say I've ever knowingly seen Hawkins play but he seems to fit the bill for what we need, and you'd like to think Ward will be an adequate replacement for Garbutt (I'm glad we haven't broken the bank for him). Despite not having the same quality on the ball and at set pieces, he's primarily a defender, which Garbutt wasn't, but at the same time won't be afraid to get forward.
We were a soft touch last season and the one before, both mentally and physically. I'm pleased Lambert is looking to address that. Next challenge is playing to their strengths.

have retired the no.22 shirt after Bellingham's move to Dortmund.

Can we agree that the coverage was painful?
Dodgy zoom calls with Klopp and Henderson etc, and the worst of all Kenny whose phone was pinging every 10 seconds. The game they'd all just watched barely got mentioned after full time.
Even ignoring the fact he's one of them, I can't bring myself to like Jake Humphrey.

Fairly predictable. But for that reason possibly the best we've seen?
No 'controversial' picks or inclusions because someone 'complemented' someone else.
Can't argue with it.
