Football: Better Call Raul

VAR being entertaining for a change! Yeah, not sure why it took so long for them to decide that was a penalty though.

Class from Ndombele. Don't get why he isn't a starter atm. I actually know a Manchester side that would gladly use a good CM, especially if another french CM was to leave.

Apart from that, is it still a concern that Spurs had to wait until City were down to 10 men to actually start playing?

By all accounts he hasn't lasted longer than about 60 minutes on the pitch pretty much ever.

Ndombele's going to have to show a lot more than he has for Spurs so far before we even think of him as a potential viable replacement for Pogba.

He was vital to Lyon's midfield for a couple of seasons though, you can see the clear drop in quality that followed his departure. But yeah, I agree he's still to adapt to to PL, especially in the physical department.

But thing is, if he does prove himself to be a strong and regular link for Spurs, will Levy & co. listen to any offer, particularly from other PL sides?:dunno:

I didn’t watch the game but it looks like City figuratively battered Spurs in terms of possession, shots, chances, and literally too in fouls and cards.  And yet Spurs Jose’d them 2-0 without Kane.  Mourinho’s preferred tactic of sitting deep and waiting for the opponent to make an error does pay off from time to time (not least Gerrard’s slip) but I cannot imagine why fans are willing to watch this anti-football.

Speaking of which, although I give a lot of credit to Wolves for all they are achieving, they’re absolutely brutal to watch.  Like a faster and more skillful version of Burnley or Stoke.

The answer is an emphatic no.

Ndombele's former midfield partner at Lyon, Aouar, is another class player. It's only a matter of time before he moves on and it'd be a shame if we don't at least make a bid for him just as it was a mistake not bidding for Ndombele. Knowing the clowns at our club though, we'd probably rather get rinsed for dross like Rice or Longstaff rather than bid for a player who is better by a country mile.

Grealish is another player we should be seriously considering since we need to make at least 3 midfield signings - Pogba isn't going to extend his contract so will be sold either at the end of this season or next. I'd prefer for us to listen to offers at the end of this season because I don't want an Eriksen situation.

Looks like footybite has bit the dust. Does anyone know any *legal* aggregator streaming sites one might visit?

I think we're gonna go for Grealish because he fits the Brexit profile of whoever's making the transfer decisions.

I also kinda hope, assuming as we probably should that Sancho is out of our reach, that we make a play for Buendia- it's a funny year this year where several teams in the relegation struggle have at least one really class player that could play for most of the top sides (Arsenal even have several). He's great and he can play in central midfield/no10 if need be.

Also if Pogba goes to Madrid I feel like we're gonna try to get Odegaard in return, mainly because his transfer to Madrid a while back caused enough of a stir that Woodward will probably vaguely recognise who he is.

Kinda lame you can’t even pay the iron price for the FA cup replay between Liverpool/Shrewsbury today. Not airing anywhere from what I understand. Gonna be a weird one. Hopefully the kids don’t get blown out.
