    I predict a season where we spend the first 35 games in the bottom 3, then dramatically pull clear over the last 3 games. The players treated like heroes over summer 2020.

    Certainly has the air of a competition winner.

    Harry Forster from the u23s?

    Confused about pre-season...

    Won’t the Sociedad game clash with our appearance in the Charity Shield? What was the point of winning the cup otherwise...

    Can't help but be disappointed by our preseason schedule.

    One year, the club will fulfill my dream of playing a preseason game against Clwb Pêl Droed Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch FC.

    Alas, it is not to be this year.

    Apparently the pilot is a chap called Kev, who works on a fruit stall, and isn't allowed to fly for commercial gain or after dark. He thinks he knows the way ("Hit Germany, then turn right"). Gino just doubled the club's insurance cover and bought some property in Monaco and Florida.

    Seems you have to be a leading vexillologist to have a clue what’s happening in our club these days.

    Geographically, it would be turn left.

    Correct. Other than the fact it would be right.

    Ah.

    You’re taking the London - Bamako - Munich routing.

    [Pause whilst exits room. Returns after a brief interlude.]

    Having taken leisure to consult a map, it is virtually a straight line from London to Stuttgart to Munich to Austria.

    No need for an untimely overflying of Dresden &, as noted above, pretty much a left from Germany.

    Interesting that Harry Forster has gone on the tour - could we finally be seeing another of our academy players making the step up?



    And can anyone tell if it's Crichlow in the back left at 3:14?

    Agreed. Straight line.
    I was working on the basis it's south of Germany and as any good navigator knows, north is left from UK, South is right, when heading to Europe.

    I rate him and think he did well at his age in his first season.

    If he was a homegrown academy player, we’d all have high hopes for him.

    Left back is always tough.

    The reputation for being the worst player in the team & playing right next to the 1881 Ultras.

    He's 25 - hardly a prospect, he should be in his prime.

    He's a dud.

    Yes though only on his shooting ability rather than his ability to defend.

    Extensive footage of Sema in the videos as well - doesn't mean they're both not good enough.

    I suspect there is also the fear of playing well, and taking Holebas's place, with all the violent abuse that would bring. Easier to just play a bit meh and not have to incur his wrath.
