Interesting that yesterday Ashton said our transfer business isn't done yet. So I guess we can expect more.
PC said 4231 was his preference. He likes the adaptability. Sometimes we will need to play 2 up top (assumed 442).
Think the main areas of with this in mind would be
CM - Think we are currently asking too much of our CM and I don't know how much PC rates Nolan. If he rates Nolan and think he can get the Shrewsbury play-off final player out of him then I think this becomes less of a concern.
LB - No surprises here, we are on pause with Coulson, who would seem like a great addition at this level.
CB - Three players for one position at the moment and I think both Woolfenden and Nsiala are capable at this level. Personally I would prefer us to either bring in a stand-out defender, or wait until next year and just utilise the loan market if we need to. Quality over quantity for this position now. I don't believe there is a rush.
Recently made on myself for a family member for canvas, but eventually want to do a circular one for myself.
Are the any decent visual display software, where I can generate a jpeg.
I guess what I'm aiming for is something like the Gramps one below (not my actual tree). But the Gramps one is super ugly, has no customisation feature for the charts and they cut off info, as they aren't scaling.
I am good enough at Google Sheets to take a GED file and make a standard tree. I've not tried to make it look nice, so it is a bit ugly. I'm not sure the limitations I'd face in googlesheets.
Anyone done a circular display on canvas before? Or any recommendations on better software to display?
I'm not on twitter, I saw this on the BBC. It would be great if our club could support/has supported this. Hopefully it will help pave the way for gay footballers in the men's game to come out, if they were in two minds.
Edit: Can you tell I'm not on twitter! Feel free to send me a link that people can see!
See there is one for Canada, but Canada is massive and I can't even find anything about it online. Thinking of doing an unofficial Vancouver supporters club... even if it just ends up being me and my dog.
Anything I should be considering, excluding a name change, if I go ahead and do it?
English: Phillips. So close for me between him Sterling and Shaw. But Phillips just gets it for me. He completed the most successful tackles, 15th in ball recovery (3rd for DMs) and he covered the second most distance - 83km across 665mins.
Non-English: Jorginho. Another DM. Only player to cover more distance than Phillips in the tournament. Tied with Akanji for ball recovery and a bit better with the ball than Phillips, allowing the likes of Insigne, Immobile and Chiesa to break quickly and present a constant threat.
Just got the tube back from London Bridge. Some guy was racially abusing another guy on the tube. Mediterranian looking guy, who supported England, but was smiling at something on his phone was the target of racist abuse.
I stepped in, squared up to the racist and put him in his place. Another guy, squared up to me. But his mate stepped in and told him I wasn't the aggressor and the other guy was being racist.
Mrs K very upset because she felt vulnerable and the other guy was bigger (would have Ko'd him, don't worry people).
Thing simmered down and then when the guy was getting off at West Ham, he stood up and started laying into me verbally. I told the racist where to go and at this point a large group of ripped black people where standing right behind him and had my back.
Mrs K then laid into me at Stratford for causing and issue and putting us in a vulnerable position. Some random girl then said I did the right thing and she was just drunk.
Had a good chat with the guys who originally thought I was the aggressor. West Ham fans who had been all around London today and even let off flares at Wembley. They fully supported me in the end and I Wished them and Creswell well for the new season.
Rather a sad end to the night, but hey, the guy I stood up for really appreciated it and others said well done after things calmed down.
This just came up on google from some "activist reporter"
What planet are some people on this morning? I get it, people wanted Denmark to go through as they were the underdogs and had a terrible thing happen to their star player. It would have been a great story arch for them to go on an win.
But let's be clear. Denmark were cynical, they committed over 20 fouls, we committed 10. We had 20 shots, they had 6. We had 53 passes in 2m30 in extra time, they were trying to get to penalties.
Has anyone clipped England keeping the ball in extra time? Want to watch that again. Great stuff. 2m33 and 53 passes apparently. Felt like we held onto it for a lifetime.
Just read that we completed more passes in extra time against Denmark tonight than we did in the entirety of our match against Germany in 2010. Such an improvement in quality, and highlights how far we've come in the last decade... Particularly since Southgate took over.
Yellows get wiped after the next game. Meaning if these four players avoid a yellow, no one would from England would be banned for yellow cards this tournament.
So, if you were Southgate, would you drop any of these players?
I wouldn't have any issues with Mings filling in for Maguire either this game or the semi-final, if Maguire picked up a suspension. Perhaps, I'd play Mings so Maguire had a bit more of a rest before potentially a semi-final.
I don't think Foden would be recalled instead of Saka.
Philips and Rice have been a big part of our current set up. Would I want Henderson starting after only 48mins this tournament. I'm not sure. But I wouldn't want him coming in against Denmark in a semi-final either, particularly if it was forced on us and we couldn't sub him for a DM, if they were suspended.
