Last Weekend of the Season Football Thread


#741

Hes not that good yet


#742

He is still a very good player, wont get decimated


#743

How many ex villa players have Boro got? Seems like loads


#744

Totally agree - it’s a difficult spot to be in for Gareth. Lallana typically plays very well for England too, wouldn’t be a wasted spot imo but sure opens him to criticism


#745

Dean’s bottled that one


#746

Deliberate handball outside the box with the ball going in the net not a red card? Nice 1 Mike


#747

If he picked a squad completely on form, it’d probably be something like…

Pickford, Pope, Butland
Walker, Alexander-Arnold
Lascelles, Mee, Tarkowski, Dunk
Delph, Young
Stephens, Shelvey, Milner, Henderson
Sessegnon, Sancho, Lingard, Sterling
Sinclair, Murray, Kane, Vardy


#748

Villa will do Fulham (sadly).


#749

Could be a lot worse. Would gladly trade Villa for most of the bottom half tbh


#750

Yeah. There are only a few teams i enjoy watching in the Premier League - City, Liverpool, Spurs, Arsenal, Leicester, Bournemouth, and Roy’s Palace.


#751

Interestingly not many glaring omissions: Dele, Dier and Stones; that it? Rashford? (Mee is injured btw)


#752

I don’t think this has been posted here yet (apologies if it has)


#753

I know none of you care but yessssssssssssssssssssss


#754

Tomkins IN

Based on stats


#755

I saw stats that suggest Ederson’s the third worst goalie in the league…


#756

As I’ve said before Tomkins has been outstanding.


#757

Has anyone ever been promoted through the playoffs with all three games ending in draws?


#758

Huddersfield did that last season, 0-0 and 1-1 v Sheff Wed in the semi, 0-0 won on pens v Reading in the final.


#759

Ha. Superb. Don’t know why I woke up wondering about it, but glad it has happened. Thanks BTE!


#760

Yep, they also went up with a negative goal difference.
