    Score Prediction v Estonia

    2-0 win.
  2. This is a football supporters forum not a court case. Have a day off ffs. 🤦‍♂️
  3. I’ve already addressed these points but in short: IMO he was an ever present due to a lack of competition for his midfield berth, not l because he was particularly outstanding. Who was genuinely pushing for his starting place? No I wouldn’t be happy to see the back of him but nor would I be too worried about it. Despite the lack of alternatives if he’s bailed on two qualifiers because he needs a rest but is ok to crack on and play club football I wouldn’t be selecting him again any time soon. He is clearly overrated by some on here. (I’d say, in your words, they’re talking bollocks tbh.) He does an alright job in the middle of the park. Usually no more than that. A tidy bits & pieces midfielder. Yes two stand out moments, they were great. Both more than a while ago now though unfortunately. He’s had a handful of really good games for us over the years. (Law of averages?) Very few during & since the Euros though. Legend? Not for me.
  4. Fairs fair, if they think he’s doing a great job this season then who am I to argue. And I’m delighted for him, hope they go up. Over the course of his career though it’s been clear he’s not Premier League standard and never particularly shone in the Championship. As for his exclusion, it was suggested by Michael that Ollie needed a rest. From two important qualifiers whilst (if last night is anything to go by) still turning out for his club. Now, if there’s not more to it than that, I wouldn’t be rushing to select him again. I don’t think that’s harsh at all.
  5. I think Norwood has been generally poor since the Euros, although as a team we’re clearly not the force we were. For a dead-ball specialist he creates very little and doesn’t score. He’s a decent Championship standard bits & pieces midfielder who’s benefited from having very little competition for his position. As for “he needs a wee break”, he’s still turning out for his club so I’d be more than happy to give him a permanent break from international football.

    I genuinely thought we’d moved on from amateurish administration like this.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    That capitulation in Tallinn was the worst I’d witnessed until the Luxembourg debacle surpassed it.

    O’Neill has an awful lot to ponder before the qualifiers come around in March.

    O’Neill was raging at the end. Not sure who he was pointing at and giving off to.

    How did that song for the keeper go? Something about ‘Our New Roy Carroll’?
  16. Michael doesn’t sound happy. If there’s not a good reason for pulling out of the squad so late he can f**k right off.

    Post mortem

    Pretty good performance yesterday, I’m optimistic for the qualifiers. Norwood played well (and I reckon he’s done sod all since crossing for McAuley against Ukraine) and I thought that was Davo’s best game for a long time too. I expected more from Bosnia tbh.
  19. My days of flying home for friendlies is long gone. They’re usually sh*te affairs which we invariably lose.

    South Korea

    A decent game for a friendly and nice to get a win. Great to see a few of the inexperienced lads involved too. That was a lovely goal by Smyth to win it.
  21. Only met him once briefly at Southampton airport, seemed like a nice bloke.
