Re: Eze

10m? Our outlay this summer was a tenth of that. Compare and contrast the performance of Eze with that of our wide left player, McNeil. One was a constant threat, was fouled repeatedly and saw the fullback marking him booked in his attempts to stop him. One was fairly anonymous and wandered inside ...

We needed to come out all guns blazing yesterday, WBA did that a few weeks back and went 3-0 up at HT by actually putting pressure on a dodgy defence.
That dodgy defence has kept 5 clean sheets in 6 games since then after a change of goalkeeper (and the new keeper missed the other game).

Ironic that level used to be offside but they changed it to on at the onset of the "make football more spectacular/more goals" era. Now we've got fewer goals.
This season so far has seen significantly more goals per game than any other (in the PL).

Over the seasons before VAR there were thousands of goals scored "that weren't goals" if VAR had been around.

So serious foul play is null and void if they’re offside when you smash them?
