    wish we had redeveloped the Boleyn Ground and not moved to the London Stadium

    I went to the London stadium this year   it was impressive  however for me it certainly isnt a football stadium    I suppose it was about saving money.

    Jonathan Woodgate seems to be getting mentioned the most. A journo from the beeb said we were looking at coaches in Holland but the local paper said that's not the case

    Its always a big leap of faith  going down the foreign route in the championship   Woodgate would not be a bad shout    a young hungry ex player      It seems to be the way to go at the moment  what with Lampard and Gerrard

    Goalkeepers: 

    Jack Butland, Tom Heaton, Jordan Pickford

    Defenders: 

    Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ben Chilwell, Joe Gomez, Michael Keane, Harry Maguire, Danny Rose, John Stones, Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker

    Midfielders:

    Strikers:

    Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, Raheem Sterling, Callum Wilson 

    Delph??  what about Maddison?.  why is Lingard still in      No Luke Shaw which im a little surprised at   Also i thought Wan Bissaka  might have got a chance ahead of Trippier    Also call me biased  but i think Cody has had a better season than Stones and Keane.

  4. A man (sorry Trans)   consultant to the police    beats up a 16 year old girl  with a hammer  but the police are treating it as a female on female violence.    21st century uk folks 

     


  5. Impression of the development at the Wolves ground which sees work to be carried out at the end of next season.   single tier  south bank   It may not be as flash as spurs Ed Stone

      but it will do.  Also comparison of now and then

    My point being the uppers may suggest mid teens, but like this current spell, they could easily be well above in sunshine. And  all I'm seeing is a really settled and warmer end to May!

    Of course they could be above.  its a week a way and more.  it could easily be a very wet and a  cool end to May  its just to far out to be sure one way or another   i was basing my opinion on the 6z and its ensembles    infact going by the ensembles the Op run is nearly a outlier at the end of the run   with the mean  showing  cool conditions   a far cry from warm and settled.

    A lot of folks were pointing out how temps this week would be mid teens at best... And its more like low to mid 20s! Plenty of sunny spells at this time of the year and temps will go above 20c nearly everytime! 

    Not sure  what thats got to do with anything.  The GFS 6z run  from which model i was commenting on  quite clearly shows mid teens   i currently dont own   a crystal ball  so yes it may look different the time we get there.  but as it stands  the run shows rain  mainly across southern central Britain  with temps  around average.  ie Mid teens.

    There's plenty of high pressure and warmth on the Gfs 6z operational so I'm happy with that run..is it perfect?..  of course not!! but for the most part it's showing a very decent end to spring!!!👍

    There might be high pressure   but some areas in the next 10  days will see between 50-30 mm of rain     maybe a little more for those in the South west  and South Wales.     also Temps in towards the end of that period are Mid Teens at best.  Of course things could change   but it does look like a period of wet weather  (according to that one opp run)

    Just day's after the Europa league and Champions league finals up to 11 England players will be heading to Portugal for the Nations League Finals 

    Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Danny Rose, Kieran Trippier, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Harry Winks, Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek could all be called up 

    With pre-seasons getting underway in early July most of those players could end up with just 4 weeks off 

    Not sure some club managers will be happy    Winks has been injured  and both the Ox and Gomez  just coming back from lengthy injuries    


  10. Approx earnings for the season club by club.  Accounting just for Premiership money  not Europe of other Sponsership  deals.   A huge difference compared to the championship  were Wolves earned below 30million  last year

    Many thanks jtay  🙂

    I do not have a 'smart' TV or a BT subscription (I have Sky sports) but have just bought the Amazon Fire Stick with a view to watching lots of
    my beloved tennis on Amazon Prime .  But if I can sort the football final on a TV screen too that will be fab.
    Seems whatever, I will get to see it online so that's pleased me.

    B.  🙂 

    Or just get a chipped box?.  Whispers and scuttles away

    EasyJet have hiked prices up from £178 to £709 from London Luton on May 31st whilst in Liverpool they've hiked prices up from £260 to £751 from Liverpool John Lennon Airport

    Unbelievable    Fleece the football fans    i thought it was bad when Wolves played Utd in the FA Cup  and the bloke outside doubled his price for a cup of Bovril

    Man United mid table team... got to think what some people are smoking whilst posting on this forum at times when you see stupid comments like that.

    Man United will be back, they are part of the big 6 which will dominate the league for many years to come as they have done for the past 10 years barring a few exceptions and remember this side finished 2nd last year, all they need is a new solid defence and they will be fine because attacking wise they are fine also. Man United will be odds on ti win the Europa and i would fancy them to win it asking as they take it seriously. 

    Yes Mid table is a bit of a stretch    However i do think think top 4 for them next season will be difficult.  Utd like many clubs in Europe are under transition   And with a small amount of class players  getting them could prove difficult.  they will be competing  with barca Real,Bayern,  not to mention clubs such a City Juventus and Lpool     Your right in that they need to strengthen their defence  with perhaps three or four players needed  De Light  a target for UTD seems unobtainable  as he prefers Barca or Lpool .   Then you have to get them to gel  settle into the way the manager wants then to play, It will be tricky   Also i expect Pogba to leave  as well as herriera   Quite a clear out will happen at UTD.  recruitment for them in the summer must be brilliant otherwise top 4 will be a distant dream.

    1972, Mark? I even had the schoolbag!:yahoo:

    It was  i Believe, Although   before my time  by a few years.  A little known fact  that at the time the final was over two legs plus it was the first  UEFA cup competition.    pitty that was our last time in a European final.  however we did help start  the European cup competition/ Champions league
