I just want to say something that I when say out loud sounds madness considering some of the results we've had and that is . For me I believe Ralph Hasshenutle is untouchable.

Don't get me wrong every manager can have their faults, but what I mean is, in the wake of certain results and recent run I think some around the world would consider that stackable. However for me the idea has never once entered my mind. When Ralph has the players he needs to field the way he wants to play you can see that it works. Depth is an issue, along with circumstances and VAR.

If we found ourselves in similar results situation with puel, pelliguno or hughes I wouldn't be saying this. With Ralph though it's different.

Itโ€™s time to take stock. Various reporters bumming us up when we are playing like a bottom three. team. International PLAYER status ( 8 ) count for nothing when week after week we are outplayed and outwitted by well structured teams without many recogniseable players. Whilst we have endured many injuries and poor ref. decisions itโ€™s time to weed out overpaid pretenders for next season. Maybe Ralph could do with the shared support of a sharp no.2 to discuss substitutions player selection tactics etc. Future plans need to be activated right now in order to progress next season.

I believe a shake up of his coaching team is needed. I totally agree a stronger No2 may be required.

Untouchable? - No, but who would replace him? The only one I thought of was Benitez.

Any thoughts?

I think youโ€™ll find Ralph is someone who likes to make the decisions. He stands up the whole game and very rarely consults his coaching staff! He doesnโ€™t even stand near his coaching staff! Richard K the assistant is a very knowledgeable and experienced man.

Overpaid pretenders : one standout pretender is Redmond, to be playing him upfront is bizarre.
Not quite good enough - sadly I think Bertrand is past his best by quite a way.
Stephens - simply not good enough

The bednerek and vestergard partnership worked very well, but now Salisu is on the team sheet, that partnership is gone.

Godamn all season I've been asking to get Josh Sims in.

What happens when we do? Man of the match and we beat Tottenham ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Now please give the boy a decent run so that we can have a decent run.




07 Jul 2018 12:00:18
Ok I feel I need to say that which noone seems to be talking about .

That Alex McCarthy isn't actually that good ๐Ÿ™Œ. Before anyone goes mental yes I am, like most, grateful he stepped in and helped us a bit when we needed him. However I feel the reason why so many think he's amazing is that we had to endure Forster's antics for so long that easy shots that should have been saved became wonder saves when McCarthy did them simply because he kept them out.

Point being, given a regular run in the team next season were get to see how regular he is, not as bad as Forster can be but not a decent premier league keeper either, just regular. Whether that will be enough or not were see ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‹.


1.) 07 Jul 2018 14:43:54
He won't cost us as many points like Fraser did. And are you implying that any other keeper than Forster can make the saves McCarthy made? Guaranteed? Even so, the difference which he brought wasn't solely on the saves he made but also the presence he brings. He gets down better than big FF, he actually comes out for his crosses as well. He deserves his chance to start this season as first choice and the fact that you're already downplaying him before the season even begun is unmerited. I don't even see the point of this post to be honest. He's hardly done anything wrong so far.

2.) 07 Jul 2018 19:11:29
Letโ€™s not forget how awesome Forster was when he joined us. He had a career threatening injury in his first season which obviously adversely affected him in his confidence and decision making. Letโ€™s hope a loan move will give him a spring board back to his form when he joined us and ultimately then give the manager serious goalkeeping options.

3.) 07 Jul 2018 20:13:58
Not sure. To be fair I use to be Forster's No1 fan but think at first he use to terrify attackers with his presence. After a while teams figured he couldn't get down low and that was the end of him really. Like you say thouy hope he manages to somehow get past it.

4.) 08 Jul 2018 12:13:47
I don't agree with that, I thought McCarthy was excellent last season. If he can replicate that, then I'd have no worries. On the other hand, there is always a chance he regresses back to the keeper he's always been, which is more of a backup.

5.) 09 Jul 2018 12:49:00
I think the comparison of the two keepers is ridiculous. They are completely different types of keeper. Fraser great point blank shot stopper Alex all round excellent goalie. The reason in my opinion Fraser appeared to be so good when he arrived was that he hardly had a shot to save due to the superb back four in front of him, AM has done nothing wrong so far, Iโ€™m happy he is between the sticks.

6.) 09 Jul 2018 13:36:14
I don't agree. FF was poor for some time, given chance after chance and eventually dropped. AM has come in and has been given one chance, that he has taken. Would be delighted with Gunn but AM is first choice for me.

7.) 09 Jul 2018 14:18:55
I wasn't sure about AM at first. But he did all the simple stuff we were begging FF to do. Catching crosses, commanding his box, holding the ball and actually making some unbelievable saves in the last few games. Now will it continue? Who knows, but from what I've seen if him as a goalkeeper. I've got no worries right now about his ability. even if he does just do the basics well.

8.) 10 Jul 2018 11:50:03
If we will sign Gunn, I think we have the best GK duo since Niemi and Jones!

So tired, tired . of people thinking Mccarthy is a good keeper. Been saying since say day one he can't do anything unless the ball is shot at him. Forster is starting to find form and confidence again. He NEEDS to be given a start.


1.) 06 Feb 2021 16:59:16
Definitely agree, he should be the first name on the sheet next game.



07 Jan 2021 20:42:09
Diablo looked like the ball glued to his feet when he had it, awesome. Liverpool couldn't get the ball off him ๐Ÿ‘

Amazing to see Forster back in goal too, I wish/ hope he takes over for Mccarthy ๐Ÿค˜.


1.) 08 Jan 2021 23:02:41
Diallo was absolutely superb. It was not just his ball control, but his passing, vision, positional play . amazing!
Great to see our player choice is back on track after some awful purchases. I like the we didnโ€™t just buy him
And put him in the first team, but instead spent time on the training ground, . the result . first team player!

2.) 15 Jan 2021 09:44:01
diallo looks potential world class probably better for him to play a good team and break up play. his pace tackling and passing are first class. as for forster looked nervous (understanable) and his kicking and feet are still suspect so don't think he fits the plan. would like to see him get a move if we can get another keeper in as back up.



29 Nov 2020 14:16:49
Getting tired now of people/ commentators biging up goalkeepers for saves that are shot right at them. Alex Mccarthy is one of these.

Don't get me wrong he's been doing alright, but for a premiership goalkeeper who is on the money he is, praise should come from more.

Today against united with clinical strikers you think your see his weaknesses. If not I'll be at my words ๐Ÿ˜‰.




04 Jul 2020 17:29:06
Can we please put Fraser in-between the sticks tomorrow ๐Ÿ™Œ.

Frankly we've needed a new keeper ever since the big man lost his form/ confidence. McCarthy like I've said before or Gunn have never been good enough. Therefore can we try putting Fraser back in now that he has been playing and performing, albeit in Scotland. See if he is the man he was/ were looking. If he is great we've found our new/ old keeper of not we know we need to keep looking.


1.) 06 Jul 2020 15:53:48
Does anyone know what's happening with Fraser? Seems like he's not wanting to go back to Celtic for another year.

2.) 08 Jul 2020 09:32:51
hopefully he goes if he comes in and has a bad game he will be ridiculed again. he is in all fairness playing championship at best. celtic giants of Scottish football European football every year and paying 15 percent of his wages what a joke.



22 Feb 2020 16:00:29
If we had a goal for every time a commentator praises JWP when he's standing over a dead ball situation we'd be champions league ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Ž ( good delivery but from the way they big him up you'd expect a lot more return from his set pieces)
