Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Clubs vote to shorten the summer transfer window so it shuts on 9th August.

Makes sense to get all that nonsense out of the way before the season starts.

Re: Trump .... you're on

It was a tongue in cheek remark - but within reach doesn't mean physical contact. ;)

That does sound very formal though. My teachers used to move round the room while teaching, as do my daughter's teachers.

Re: Trump .... you're on

That's a very Catholic perspective. ;)

Most Teachers need kids close by so they can teach them. :D


*disclaimer - I'm not suggesting all Catholic teachers are that way inclined, just alluding to historical issues in the Catholic church as a whole.

Re: Trump .... you're on

They could strap the guns to the kids so that the teacher always has one within easy reach. :idea:

Ah Hans. Best baddie ever.
Clearly Rollo Tomassi was the best baddie ever. That guy was nuts.

A good keeper with a crappy team in front of him can often look pretty poor of course.
True enough, but I thought Raya looked a much better option than either Eastwood or Steele when they were vying for the 1st team jersey in the same team.

Re: Portsmouth v Blackburn Rovers, Tue 13/2 2018, KO 19:45

I think Raya has done a good job at this level and greatly contributed to the confidence of those on front of him. I’d say he’s the best keeper we’ve had since Robinson, and possibly even better than him towards the end of his time at our club. Obviously he’s nowhere near Friedel’s or Flower’s stand...
