Why all this Britt hate we been over this time and time again we don't play to his strengths he is lucky to get 1 chance a game thus as he is a championship striker inorder to score he needs multiple chances so does miss a fair few.  But if he was one shot one kill he would not be at Middlesbrough 🙃. Warnock is trying to get his confidence back by him being made captain so he feels like the main man that hopefully leads to his best goal scoring season for us 🥅

Exactly. We did over pay for him but that's not the lads fault is it? He is as good as any striker in this league.

Hi guys! PAOK fan here from Greece. You are getting a really hard worker in Akpom. He is a top lad and a good professional. When he first came, he was considered a bench player. It was the 2018-19 sea

Morsy nearly done

Williams fee nearly agreed. 1.75million rising to 2.5 (So 1.75 then 😂).

Fair criticism is not hate....for his fee, he should be more involved ...trying to win ball, making runs to create space for others...passing to people in better positions..not just hanging around in the middle of the pitch..if he put himself about as much as his team mates, he would score more, but his movement is usually in areas that make him easy to block out ...you can't play to one person's strengths without weakening the team overall as every opponent will know how to neutralise us, if he can become a team player then we will be much more dangerous ..he has the strength to hold the ball and play people in, he just seems to lack the inclination sometimes

He quite often does put himself about though, especially under Warnock his work rate has gone through the roof.

I don't think he's the best keeper out there but for our budget I'm happy with him, also has a year left on his contract (but Fulham hold an option for an extra year) so if he does do well good chance we could make it permanent which is always nice with loan players.

I'd rather take him than pay over the odds for Phillips.

So maybe Warnock was not bullshi**ng us when he said I did not ring Charlton about Phillips. They mentioned him to me.

Stoj can have any form of worldie he wants. Warnock does not want him.

    • I'm pretty sure too. If any coach / manager openly talked about throwing a game, one Tweet would be all it took to cause a huge scandal and put that person out of a job. But a canny one might pick a certain team and tactics that would guarantee they'd struggle. The players might think something was a bit funny...but there would be no proof of any shenanigans. 😉   In England's case though, I have to say Southgate strikes me as too honest a person. I'm sure he has way too much integrity to even consider something like that. But his cautious nature, team selections and tactics could end up having the same result. 🤷‍♂️  
    • Exactly... and even if we do draw and get an 'easy game' in the next round, there's  no guarantee we win it going in on poor form. Plus we would only have to play a strong team in the following round anyway, with Italy Belgium and whoever wins France's group on that side of the draw. You can't hide from the best sides for long in the Euros. Tonight's all about a good performance and getting the fans back on side for a home tie in the next round. It's guaranteed to be a tough game but we might as well fly home now if people are too scared to play Germany in a one off game. 
    • England need momentum and fast. Winning convincingly breeds that.    I’m pretty sure it’s only fans that discuss trying to plot an easier route through a tournament by throwing games. It’s a sure fire way for players to lose their confidence in their manager. a win is the only good result for England tonight.
    • Thats pretty much what I was thinking. They may not have scored many goals, but technically they're still a formidable team. I could see them running rings around England anyway.
