I was just listening to the radio the other day and there was a guy being interviewed about his shop that sells books as props to film and TV companies. Their business has gone through the roof since lockdown with people wanting to look 'well read' on their Zoom calls.
Some people asked for...
It makes me chuckle whenever I see Bamford mentioned.
Under 18 months ago AM couldn't believe that a 'donkey' 'Championship plodder' like Bamford was getting picked ahead of 'Wonderkid' Nketiah. How opinions of both players have changed in such a small space of time!
But it's a big no from me...
I voted 4, almost a 5 but downgraded after more thought.
I think Mikel has had it pretty tough in some ways and I have sympathy for him in a few respects.
The squad was way to big to be harmonious and I felt that a few unhappy players was almost inevitable when you have 34 first team players...
I was impressed with Abdallah Sima last night against Leicester, looked a handful and took his goal brilliantly. I Googled him and links to Arsenal popped up. Only 19 years old, 6' 2", quick, can play anywhere across the front line and 11 goals in 14 appearances this season.
One to keep an eye on.
There have been a few alarm bells for sure but I am willing to at least wait and see before judging him on his man management.
We had a squad of 34 players at the start of the season which is almost unmanageable. Only 14 players can take part on a matchday so that is 20 that are being left out...
Tierney being injury prone is a myth,
15/16 - 33 appearances
16/17 - 40 appearances
17/18 - 55 appearances
18/19 - 40 appearances
19/20 - 25 appearances
20/21 - 24 appearances
You don't make 217 first team appearances by the age of 23 if you are the injury prone crock that he is made out to...
This is a harsh assessment in my opinion. Every goalkeeper makes mistakes every now and again, look at Alisons two howlers in the same game against Man City last week and he is regarded as one of the best in the World. These things happen, you can't pick and choose if they happen in a fairly...
