Having a hard time working out the Spud starting 11 with both Lo Cecil and Sessenenegong joining…
RB Disco (or so the rumors say!) CB, Jan & Toby, LB Rose
DM Winks & N-Dumb
AM Son, Lo Cecil, Ali
STR Sir Harry
leaving us with Erikson, Lamala, Moura, Sessebebg, Sanches, Dier, Gazza on the bench… and I’m sure I’m missing somebody here…7th August 2019 at 9:55 pm #44696

If Spurs can add Lo Celso and Sessengnon they’ve probably had the best window especially if they hold on to Eriksen.8th August 2019 at 4:42 am #44726
Agree with both posts, chaps, still a bit worried about RB… but then I just remembered that Deir was a RB before he was a CB/DM… now I’m a lot worried!!4th September 2019 at 7:20 am #46992
Four games in, the transfer window shut, and some things that we’ve learned!!
Wee Erik and Lo Cecil are too similar to play in the same 11. I can see Wee Erik starting for the foreseeable future, but I suspect the longer the season goes on, those roles will reverse.
Same situation with Danny and Ryan, Danny being the starter but Ryan taking up more and more playing time as the season goes on…. assuming he’s as good as everybody says he is!! 🙂
N-Dumb is already missed, hopefully he can get a decent run of games after this stupid break.
Sanchez is not a right-back, can only assume Juan The Forth is ear-marked for that role once he’s back from injury. At the very least, play Disco or even Dier at RB!!
Jan the Man needs to be regular starter!!!
Overall, happy with a couple of points from the City/Goonies games, better than last years respective results, still annoyed about the Castle game, and I think the blame for that result lays with Poncho, playing politics with hes squad rather than just picking the best 11. But it wouldn’t be the Spuds without a couple of stupid results each season!! Hopefully there won’t be too many more!! 🙂
Still expecting 3rd place come May, anything lower will be a disappointment…4th September 2019 at 7:54 am #46995

Poch recent record in the pl is very poor
I think he’s taken them
As far as he can and will leave soon4th September 2019 at 7:57 am #46996
Wouldn’t be surprised, Waspy, I think I told you before this team peaked about 18 months ago and the two “blank” transfer windows have come back to bite us in the Arsenal. All depends on what happens at Real I reckon…
Pretty sure he’ll stay until summer though.4th September 2019 at 8:34 am #46997
the man needs to win something or just be another also ran manager….and if he cant do that at the spuds and last year would seem to have been the best chance then its not getting any easier…so much can change, on cup win could see big changes but i sense more of the same, close but no cigar, then he moves on and the whole thing starts again by which time the psuds will be back in midtable 🙂4th September 2019 at 11:19 am #47018
Like any long term supporter I would love a trophy, anyone would do .
I’m not so sure Poch will leave , I believe he is in this for the foreseeable future . He now needs to stop complaining and start getting back to winning games.
He has kept all his squad and added 3 quality players which should have us at least challenging for a CL spot and being in with a shout for the domestic cups.If City and Liverpool put their mind to it they could sweep the board at home and in Europe which leaves the rest picking over the scraps.
This season could be one of the best for European places pick any from United, Arsenal , Chelsea, Spurs , Leicester, Everton and maybe Wolves.4th September 2019 at 11:42 am #47021
Spuds for third, Goonies for forth (that front line will win more games than either UnYooUtd’s or Chelsea’s), with Foxy Ladies a strong tip for top 6 if either of them really has a bad run at some stage of the season. Everton 7th, Wolves 8th, Spam-boys 9th…4th September 2019 at 7:57 pm #47050
The question is:was Lucas really offered around Europe,especially to teams in Spain?Thought he should start more often,would have him ahead of DA.4th September 2019 at 8:08 pm #47053
Problem with Lucas is when it works, it works brilliantly, but perhaps it works 1 in 4 games. People keep going on about the CL semi… take that game out the equation, and you’ve got something like 14 goals in 62 games (not sure how many are subs mind you!). And he offers nothing against a packed defence either, great on the counter, but that’s it. Not saying he’s terrible, and I’m not saying he’s better than Ali who has gone back over the last 18 months, but should certainly be infront of Lamalea for sure.5th September 2019 at 4:59 pm #47120
