Is it Alfie's birthday? :post-4641-1156694572:

I think he's away on holiday!!    Answer;  they go to Dortmund and get hammered by the Spurs U23 lads.  A young lad named Oliver Skipp was playing that night, he turned seventeen this september you you will see a lot more from him in the near future. Probably in about two years time, forming a commanding pairing with Harry Winks.

Ronnie, you should know by now that I enjoy throwing a bone for Alfie to chase. Get my fun from simple things.

Understand,  but i can't see the gain for you on this particular subject. You're just feeding him ammunition to rip you to shreds :smile:

 

Sounds quite masochistic

What's your thoughts on Mahrez connection?

Mahrez. A very decent player. Will he improve us though? Think we have enough who can play where he plays.

What's your thoughts on Can connection?


 

Yh I reckon they are diverting interest from another target with this mahrez story. Smart.

 

All I know is what I've read and the negotiations broke down due to LFC refusing a fee activation clause in his contract. Seems a bit silly given he's only 23. He has been around a good while though and remain consistently inconsistent IMO. Should at least be getting a fee for the lad so if he does wind his contract down, bad move

This confirm's what i say to BB and other's when they go on about how well their academy teams are doing : 

 

Clubs and supporters take great pride in the results of their youth teams, citing their trophy hauls as evidence of their club's wisdom and far-sightedness. But Ramsey believes that emphasis is misplaced. He mentions with pride one youth tournament in which Spurs performed well but finished seventh. Barcelona, who operate with similar emphasis, finished eighth.

" Chris Ramsey points at the cracked screen of his touch-pad where two pyramids represent the priorities of the first team and the development team. The first team's pyramid is pointed side down. At the bottom, the least important aspect of the first team is the individual. In the middle is the team performance and at the top, the widest segment of all, is the result. The development pyramid is inverted. Here the result is the least important aspect, then the team performance and then, broadest of all, is the individual. And on this notion rests the crux of Ramsey's philosophy.

With so many teams fighting for the top positions there is virtually a top game every week and the pick this week is the Anfield v West London clash.

With the game kicking off early there is no time to dilly-dally. So let's get right to it and try for 10 out of 10 with a few perfects.

 

1-2 WHU v Leicester 
I just can't see further than a Leicester win in this early-bird game
 
2-0 Palace v Stoke Cty
I reckon this will be the start of the the table climb for Palace.

 

2-0 Man Utd v Brighton
Man U should smash the seaguls back to the south coast and into the Atlantic; but stange things happen. Good to see Pogba back.

1-3 Newcastle v Watford
The hornets have a nice blend of youth and talent.

 

1-2 Swans v Bournemouth
Bournemouth to just edge this one.

 

4-0 Superspurs v WBA
On paper this should be one of the bankers of the season; given form and circumstance. Just how many will Superspurs score?
  
1-1 Liverpool v Chelsea
Both teams wil fancy their chances in this one. Could go either way. I'm on the fence.

 

1-1 Saints v Toffeemen
Two out-of-form teams. First thought a goal less match but I'm an optomist with Everton.
 
1-2 Burnley v Arsenal
Burnley are right up there and it wouldn'y be too big a shock if they won but I'm going for a close Gunners win.

 

0-3 Huddersfield v Man City
The bookies have Man City as big favourite for the EPL title. I agree with them on that. I can't see them stumbling in this one. Could be more than 3 to City but a three keeps up their average.

 

Biggest game for me outside the EPL; Fulham v Millwall. A feisty encounter with plenty of yellows. Fulham will be buoyed by their win in the mid-week 9 goal thriller at Blade's house and with Millwall finding a bit of form it will be an interesting encounter.

I like you forecast posts. Why don't you open a 'Premier forecast' topic and post them up there every week?

 

Excellent idea.

 

I like that he gives his thoughts on each game too.

 

I might join in so you can all have a laugh.

Bit sad to read this as he was rated highly as a very decent prospect by City.


Manchester City prospect Sinan Bytyqi has been forced to retire with a heart condition at the age of 22.The midfielder's loan spell at Go Ahead Eagles was cut short last season after just four Eredivisie appearances, with the health issue revealed and Bytyqi forced to return to England.He then made the decision to retire from the game, before City offered him the opportunity to become a loan scout."I can't change yesterday but I can change tomorrow," he told The Daily Mail. "I go home and cry or I move on."Maybe two out of 10 clubs would keep you. I have to thank [City] for giving me a chance."For me, the best job in the world is getting paid to play football and the second best is getting paid to watch it. I am very lucky."Bytyqi had been called into the Kosovo squad for World Cup qualifying prior to his retirement, but never made his international debut.
