    Mauricio Pochettino

    Ballague has already spoken. He said something along the lines of Poch definitely being United first choice, but they would have to reach an agreement with Levy and convince Poch to want to come, neither of which might be possible. Something like that anyway, but the gist was that Poch is happy...

    Who do we want in the last 16 of the Champions League?

    Great game for the first European tie at the NWHL. Battle of the single-tiered stands. Actually, fuck the game. Whichever stand is better should go through.

    In that case your issue is clearly with your ability to judge players, not Winks' ability.

    How can you look at that collection of stats and come to the conclusion that he's just average? What I see when I look at that is a 22 year old who sits very comfortably alongside other players who are at least 4 or 5 years older than him, if not more, and significantly more experienced, who...

    From what I've seen of Skipp, they could actually make quite the complimentary combination in a few years time. Like you say, Skipp is a bit more physical and still 18, so she should fill out quite a bit more, and what Winks lacks in size he more than makes up for in dogged determination and...

    A 22 year old homegrown midfielder saw more of the ball (sorry to use a BC-ism, guys) than any other midfielder on the pitch, which included Rakitic, Coutinho, and one of the finest young midfielders in the world in Arthur, at the Camp Nou of all places and used it at 87% efficiency and yet some...

    Match Ratings Ratings vs Barcelona

    Rose and Sissoko are both reasonable shouts for MotM. But Chrsitian Eriksen was on a different level to every other player on the pitch today. Something like ~60 passes at 90+% with a lot of them forward is ridiculous in itself, but even that doesn't tell the true story. It was a masterclass in...

    Player watch: Danny Rose

    Back to his absolute marauding best today. What I love about Rose when he plays like that is that he has a really healthy arrogance to his game, particularly with his tackling and the physical side to his game. It's not a bad thing either because when he is like that, he's at his best, whereas...

    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    He was outstanding. He just has this simple, everyday footballing genius about him. He makes the most sublime passes look so casual, as if he's surprised that no one else could see them. But I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing that he was so clearly the best player on the pitch at...

    Other than obviously losing the ball for their goal and the yellow card challenge, he was generally solid. It's obvious that he's far more confident going forward than defending, but that's all right atm. One thing I have noticed though, and it's not just this game but almost every one I've...

    Player Watch: Moussa Sissoko

    3rd behind Eriksen and then Rose for me, but still quality nonetheless. His athleticism and fitness levels are genuinely freakish, not to mention the incredible mental strength it must take to continue to run yourself into the ground so late in the game. There were times today where he had just...

    Rubbish. He's just at the age now that Kane was when he broke through. Of course he's still a prospect.

    Match Threads Barcelona v Spurs - Match Thread (CL Round 6)

    Nonsense. If KWP executes a very basic bit of control then pass, then there's absolutely no issue with the set piece set up. What I liked about KWP is that he was initially disappointed as he knew it was his mistake, but he owned it and then was pretty decent for the rest of the half (apart...

    Team v Barcelona

    This is actually a difficult one, but I think I've come down on what I would prefer to see. Lloris Alderweireld - Dier - Vertonghen KWP - Eriksen - Sissoko - Dele - Rose Son - Kane It gives KWP protection and allows him to do his best work, which is going forward, while also getting enough...

    Team v Barcelona

    Nothing says "don't be silly" like giving an 18 year old his professional full debut in central midfield away at the Nou Camp in a must-win Champions League game. :rolleyes:
