    Good positive start and cruised to the win after a silly goal conceded, sounds like the score could have been more and 4 goals with non e from Kane or Son is a good sign. 


    Yeah Son missed a couple that you'd normally bet on him scoring and missed giving Kane a tap-in. On the flip side Kulusevski looks even better than he did last season, as did Bentancur, and Sessegnon & Emerson have come on a lot as WBs with a proper Conte preseason too.

    I agree its disrespectful...


    That's not what I was pulling up, Ezra Miller is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns. I'd appreciate it if you changed your post to reflect that too.

    I’ve not really been following this, is it based on actual stories written by Tolkien and, if so, where can I read them before I watch this?


    Or are they likely to have Frankensteined a bunch of his notes together and taken creative liberties?


    All they have rights to use of Tolkein's work is the 4 original books (including the appendices), which means that there'll be a fair bit of filling in to do by whomever is writing them series.

    David Warner (Time Bandits, The Omen, Tron, multiple Star Treks, Titanic, the '90s Batman and Spider-Man cartoons, Freakazoid) has died.




    I thought he was older than 80... that means he was only about 40 when he was in Time Bandits! :o



    Such a fantastic actor with an incredibly varied career, was always a highlight when he turned up in something.

  6. Think there's still one or two more earmarked, although I would guess there's going to be a lot of focus on selling players from here on. Gotta move the folks left off the tour as a priority. 

  7. Spence is done, this pic of his first interview has leaked:



    Sounds like the focus is now on prising James Maddison away from Leicester. 

  8. Fati has been plagued with injuries so he may not be part of their thinking either, along with Depay. 


    Lewandowski is a big name too which would help with commercial revenue, something they're going to need to grow aggressively given they're missing out on a huge chunk of TV revenue for the foreseeable. 

  9. Bergwijn really needs to be playing every week and he was never going to get that without a move. I expect he'll do great and get a bigger move in and couple of years, much like Haller has.

    True, but counterpoint; Daniel Levy. 


    Levy only sells big players who force a move, he's never flogged someone off purely to make a quick buck.

    It’s a decent bit of business, he can cover all three forward positions and will be the best back-up to Kane we have ever had, he is also a complete shit-house which I feel we have lacked that after Lamela left.



    We still need to get at least one centre-back in and a right wing-back, but overall this is starting to look like the best squad we have ever had in the Premier League.


    There’s an awful lot of players we need to sell though, let’s hope the out-goings commerce soon.


    Sounds like Lenglet on a long term loan is close now, apparently he's really struggled at Barca but if I was to bet on any manager to significantly improve a CB it's Conte.

    obi wan is supposed to kick ass though hasn’t he! He should be saving folks not being saved himself , he should be at the peak of his powers.  


    He's barely willing to use the Force at all and spent the last decade hiding in a cave with his lightsaber buried in the desert, he's as far from his peak as he's probably been his entire life. Have you not noticed that he's been almost scared to even ignite his lightsaber?

    I've got no clue how the controls will work on pad. My pc runs it ok on potato. Don't know how that will hold up with lots of breaking shit down.


    I've been playing it on an Xbox pad since it went Early access, all works great IMO.

    Yep, he’s been guilty of a few howlers in league with Steve Hitchen. I have a lot more faith in Paratici and Conte. Perisic for free before we’ve even got to June, under the noses of Chelsea ? Yes please !


    Feels like for the first time since probably Arnesen & Jol that the DoF and head coach are totally on the same page and Levy is just happy to sit back and let them get on with it. I imagine he'll still want to be involved with more significant contract negotiations *cough*Kane*cough*, hopefully that'll be enough to keep him occupied!

    Chelsea then.


    Have they been allowed to write off a huge loan or did the purchase price cover it.


    As far as I understand it the purchase price did cover what Abramovich was owed, but he's committed to using it to aid Ukrainian refugees or rebuilding efforts or something, and the money will be held in a frozen account by the government until that is set-up. I'm sure he'll find a way to get money back from that, but it gives them a way around the sanctions in the short term.

    I read we're loaning Kulusevski for another year before a potential obligation to buy, Romero has to be purchased now. 


    Yeah Kulusevski is a loanee for another year, I'm sure there's some accounting trickery that makes a deal like that beneficial for both parties somehow. I'd not be surprised if Paratici went back to Juve and made a similar deal for Weston McKennie. 

  17. So then, ENIC is putting in £150m and there's talk about deals already being done or close to (Forster, Spence), what on earth has Paratici been dosing Daniel Levy with?!
