  1. Looking on Twitter, those who seem to be close to him, who also support Rangers, and will obviously be a little biased, seem to claim he is not a tarrier fan, it's not all about money, don't believe everything in the papers and he merely wants a pathway to the first team. Like most things it's probably somewhere in the middle. I doubt he's demanding starts every week but I guess if we're honest is there a clear pathway to the first team for youngsters? I dunno. The old adage would be if they're good enough, they're old enough. Maybe they're not good enough? This season is clearly a huge season for us though. Maybe, like a lot of managers, when it comes to the crunch there is a reluctance to blood youngsters? This current crop of youngsters we have seem to be of a higher standard than previous years. I guess we'll find out soon enough. Fuck knows! I'm sure it'll sort itself out.
  2. I think i'll hold fire before slagging the boy off! The Sun said he was was sent back to the Academy last week. Some fans however have suggested they seen him in recent training videos/pics (not sure myself). The Record say we are still hopeful of striking a deal.
  3. Bit of a strange decision by ITV. I quite like him but I guess it's not the end of the world. I'm sure he'll manage.
  4. Not the best close up but he looks wrecked!
  5. Man U front front 4 are on fire. The front 3/4 of most top 6 teams look pretty exciting for next season.
  6. Okay, with that Redmond assist, I only got 1 out of 4! However I think this type of bet is decent. Small stakes, big odds and also giving yourself at least 2 options per game. You also have the chance to win more than once if more than one player in game gets an assist. Skybet are pretty good with assists too. They give an assist if a player crosses it and a defenders hand balls it and there is a goal from the pen or freekick. The annoying thing is most games are one at a time so you're almost trying to predict the teams as well! I'll get there at some point!
  7. Football is mad. Arsenal far the better side. Now behind.
  8. Pickford is shocking. You could probably just copy and paste that for every game he plays.
  9. Okay my slight backseat his been altered! Surely there is money to be made with a Real side going for the title against an Alaves side featuring Oliver Burke! Will probs do a few shot bets on including the following: Casemiro, Kroos, Modric and Vasquez. Some decent value.
  10. Target Young and we'll breeze through.
  11. I like Mount. He's a got a bit of the Lampard in him in that he provides a goal threat from midfield. Obviously nowhere near Frank level though. In fairness he's went from the Championship to 1st team player at Chelsea in such a short period of time although game time may be a little less with the signings Chelsea are making. James is unlucky that RB is so strong but if TAA moves further forward or central James or Wan Bissaka are solid options. He's still really young as well. RLC is strange one. He has all the attributes. Big strong, powerful, fast and he's always looked decent when playing for England. He's been unlucky with injuries but his little dink pass for Abraham's goal at Palace shows he has that bit of quality too. If he can stay injury free he offers something a different. Abraham can be a bit clumsy and unorthodox but he's got pace, is awkward and can finish. Again, nowhere as good but similar traits maybe to a young Andy Cole. Another good option. I would have Maddison over Grealish but like Grealish, I think Maddison hides. They both have ability. They just need to get more involved, and make things happen. Winks is neat and tidy. I'd imagine he'll play more often once Henderson retires.
  12. Sancho, Rashford, Mount, Wan Bissaka, Abraham, James, Maddison, Chilwell, Loftus Cheek, Winks, Barnes, McNeil and a few others too. Some have obviously got a good bit to go to fully establish themselves but a fair bit of potential there. Kane only 26, Sterling 25 as well. They have a fair amount of options now up top. Trying to get the right formula could be tough though. Good problem to have. Defence and keeper are a concern. Maguire, Mings, Stones, Tomori, Gomez and the like are a little suspect, possibly a little unfair on Gomez, Pickford is wild too. Henderson has done well but not sure if he's quite as good as some are making out. That said i'd have him or Pope ahead of Pickford.
