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 😂).

I thought I was the only person who remembered D-A-D, apart from the band themselves! 

They are still active 

Help Your Selfish is a really good album

Might be up your alley 👍🤘

From twitter:

Anton Toloui @SkyAnton
#WWFC, as many PL clubs are, looking to trim the squad on #DeadlineDay.
Ruben Vinagre expected to complete his loan to Olympiakos, the deal also includes a £22.5m option to buy.
Oskar Buur is expected to join FC Volendam on loan.
No offers as of yet for Bennett & Miranda.

Would be nice to bring in one more permanent deal and then Roberts and another on loan.

Would've thought there'll be very little done outside the Premier League. Everyone's skint.

Everyone has been skint for years really, hopefully this pandemic can lead us away from the boom and bust strategy of championship sides and actually ensure we have clubs who are self sustaining

Somebody should let Derby and Forest know that

Whilst there's so much money to be made in the PL, the temptation to gamble to get there will always exist.

thats why there should be a robust FFP which actively stops this practice, there should also be clear guidance on contracts and clauses if they do get relegated as opposed to hefty parachute payments

I still think we can go 343 with Roberts/tav fighting for that position. Play howson as a more deeper sitting rwb to provide the cover.

Akpom on the left but drifting in centrally with a more attack minded lwb to provide the width down that side.

In my opinion this just creates another problem rather than solving the one mentioned in the previous post. If the efl crack down on the boom or bust tactics of the championship, the clubs going up will be far less prepared to take on the big guns in the premier league and 9 times out of 10 will come straight back down again. Add to that the contract clauses scenario and they become far less attractive to play for for new signings as their wages could get cut massively in 12 months time. How do they then compete with established sides?

Any reform has to come from the top down, not the other way around. And while the TV money exists as it does for premier league sides, nothing is changing any time soon.

    • Spains second half vs Sweden and quite a large portion of the game vs Poland they had all of the ball but did almost nothing with it. To me, they don't pass the eye test and I expect them to get knocked out pretty quickly (if they even make it through). They can't seem to finish, they spend all their time passing the ball sideways and their defence is incredibly suspect.
    • Huh huh, huh huh... You said Onlyfans .. huh huh ...  
    • 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.
