Our readers debate whether Sam Allardyce is a good fit for England while one Arsenal fan is scathing over Manchester City’s pursuit of Hector Bellerin.
If you have anything to add on these, or any subject, join the debate right here.
Big Sam dividing fans
As for Big Sam? Why not? What have we got to lose? The last 3 or 4 managers have all been, shall we say, of a supposed higher calibre than Big Sam and they didn’t exactly pull up trees. I think Big Sam will certainly get the fans onside, and will certainly give those overpaid primadonnas a kick up the backside…starting to quite look forward to seeing how he does and I havenøt thought that about qualifying games in years!
Pogba worthy of the hype
I have always held a stance on not to judge a player after a international tournament, I am not judging Pogba on the back of the Euros, I am judging him from what journalists, fellow pros and fellow fans have said about him. That is what some have to resort to if they cannot watch the player.
We are going around in circles here. Pogba is going to Utd. He is no were near the complete midfielder yet but he can become top top class and I fully expect him to under Jose. Its been a good summer so far for Utd fans. I’ve said my piece on this and I’m done.
Mixed transfer business for Liverpool
Joe Allen played well in 2014 when he played left in a diamond. its a good deal for us but i think Swansea still might come in for him. £28m him for him and ibe is good buisness.
Nout sure about Wijnaldum, as hatters says we have alot of no 10’s. hes a good player but were will he play? If Firminio and Coutinho want out get rid of them. we have no real stars. Only player I’d hate us to lose would be Sturridge. No doubt he will get injured in pre-season
hatters, it’s a player Klopp wants so we have to see but I’ve no idea were he will play. I’m not sure gurjic is ready to start beside Can in a 2 man midfield. Maybe Henderson will play there. I would go out and buy another a big powerful central midfielder but there is no one we can really attract.
the Estonia lad can play full but Moreno cannot start as our 1st choice left back. The reports coming out are that Klopp thinks he can develop him??? The chap is a brainless footballer.
Bellerin to Man City criticism
This is the type of behavior indicative of Barcelona and Real Madrid. Refusing to give up pursuit of a player who is not for sale. I think now City think they have Gaurdiola they can behave in their manner. I think City think they are being clever, trying to unsettle Bellerin. However in the end they will look like mugs when he doesn’t sign.
No good City academy players then? I’m swear the City academy was erected before Bellerin made his Arsenal debut. Guess the City academy is nothing more than fancy plumbing and impressive infrastructure. Like a state of the art university with no intellectuals inside.
New rules to prove ineffective
It will never happen, they said a few years ago that only the players concerned and the two captains should approach the referee and if anyone else did they would get yellow, but then a whole team surrounds a ref and he is scared to book everyone except two players ?
Also a match gets abandoned if a team goes down to six men.
The only way is zero tolerance, and for that to take effect we’d have to have a few games where a stupid number of players got carded/sent off in order to lay the law down for all to see.
Personally I don’t think English refs are strong enough to carry such an initiative through with the consistency required to change current poor behaviour.
