There's not enough on TV.

Give me copious amounts of football over 90% of other stuff on telly.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.

Graham Carr isn't a good talent scout. He is just a man who is good at networking and schmoozing with French agents.

100% correct imo.

Same, I don't have Sky so I definitely don't think there's enough on. Specifically not being able to watch every NUFC game is a pain.

Fabregas is extremely overrated. Immense talent, but has no real desire. Bottler of the highest order.


absolutely fantastic when at arsenal, moved up and didn't make it. be very intersting if he has any desire when,if he moves on.

He's not a bottler like. I like the way he insists on taking the 5th penalty for Spain in shoot-outs.

Err... isn't this a skill that makes someone a good scout? Particularly a head scout?

I think 'Welbeck is quality' is about the same level of controversial as 'Welbeck is s***' TBH, nobody seems to know. I really like him.
Haha agreed. He hasn't played enough nor is he mature enough to make that distinction. If he could make a Walcott like improvement in finishing he'd be a top, top player imo.

Exactly. :lol:

Apart from Amalfitano who was a no risk signing, not many of his recommendations have flopped. He has to have an eye for talent for that.

Arsene Wenger is f***ing brilliant.


Second best manager in the league - at least. STILL the best coach in the league.

A scout to me is someone who can identify players that are relative unknowns or playing s**** who then turn out to be very good. E.g. When Arsenal signed Vieira, K. Toure, Anelka etc.

Not someone who can identify a French league winner/international as being a good player. Most people with eyes could do that.

As I stated his networking/schmoozing skills (in France) are very good and he has got us some good deals.

Titus Bramble was a very good defender for the majority of his career here.

Very good? For the Majority? Can't agree with that like. He had his days and occasionally he would put together a 2 or 3 game run where he didn't do something ridiculous, but even when he was solid in defence he was still smashing the ball 60 yards up the pitch and out of touch. You simply can't be a very good premier league defender without a brain.

On his day, Titus was brilliant - quick, strong, good on the ball.  It was just that it didn't happen often enough.  I seem to remember him being brilliant against Juventus in the CL and thinking that if he could play like that every week...

Titus had all the attributes to be a top defender.  He played some really good games, but I will always remember him for the f*** ups he did and there are plenty of them.

Bramble's problem, and something you need at the very highest level was concentration. He used to consitently switch off and make ridiculous decisions.
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

O'Brien was a better defender than Bramble. Both woefully short of what was needed at the time though. Massive blackspot for SBR.

Stewart Downing and James Milner are both quality Premier League footballers.

Arsene Wenger is f***ing brilliant.
...
Having a near totally foreign squad is f***ing w***.

Part of me hopes the PL bubble totally bursts.

I nearly posted something along the lines of that last one. I haven't made my mind up yet on whether I just want the "big" clubs to just f*** off into a European Super League, so I don't have to worry about this s*** any more.

Wenger is a c***, but brilliant.

Also an unpopular Spurs football opinion - Sol Campbell was in the right all along.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

Agree RE: Carr.

He's brilliant at networking, building up a list of contacts and getting information regarding contract situations but he's not really unearthing unknown players.

Ultimately what we need is more people of his ability based elsewhere.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

If Titus played for us now, he'd be our best passer.

I quite like Souness as a pundit (as long as he's not talking about us).
