Heard today we might be interested in Mata . any truth Ed?

Banbury Gooner

{Ed002's Note - Not sure - he is out of contract in the summer and will have a choice - but he will be looking to play.}

1.) 12 Nov 2018 20:50:53
Cheers ED.

2.) 15 Nov 2018 03:47:23
I wouldn't mind. I like Mata, he's the one that got away for me when he moved to Chelsea. Top player, top bloke.



17 May 2018 20:42:56
Usmanov to Everton. any truth?

Banbury Gooner

{Ed025's Note - there was a story in the dutch press today bambam but how true it is im not sure mate...but im all for it.. :)

1.) 17 May 2018 20:57:40
Lol I bet you are


I’m not.

{Ed025's Note - i want david dein as well mate...but you can keep kronke.. :)

Lot of chat about Arteta . not for me, far too soon in his coaching career.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 24 Apr 2018 10:52:48
It would be an extremely long shot giving him the job much like Cech trying to score past De Gea from a dead ball situation from his own goal line at 10pm in mid December with no floodlights, a totally unnecessary punt in the dark.

2.) 24 Apr 2018 15:33:38
It really would be very risky giving Arteta the top job. I think for this change to pay off and get the fans back onside they need to go after somebody with more stature and experience. I keep saying for me the logical choice on purely footballing reasons would be Conte but I’m not sure he would fit into the culture of our club.

3.) 24 Apr 2018 16:02:43
I like Conte Gary and wouldn't be unhappy with him at all but he does give the impression of getting fed up quickly if he doesn't get all his own way.
He would certainly find confrontation from some of our players on the training field in the early days
Conte " right Boys I want 8 laps of the pitch from you as part of your fitness assessment "
Arsenal players " which day we got to run 2 laps then boss " :-)

4.) 24 Apr 2018 19:09:28
Arteta is big NO!



04 Mar 2018 19:07:18
Any truth that we are looking at off loading Ramsey?

Thoughts on Low and Ancelotti?

Banbury Gooner

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

1.) 04 Mar 2018 20:37:33
Ed, What is the main reason why they’ll looking to offload him? . I think he’s one of our better players in this current squad. Surely Xhaka goes first!

{Ed002's Note - He is running down his contract.}

2.) 05 Mar 2018 11:14:09
Interesting. Cheers for the clear up.



14 Jan 2018 11:52:34
Sanchez left at home a sale must be imminent.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 14 Jan 2018 15:29:37
him and ozil are gone mate ozil to juv.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 16:50:33
Sanchez is as good as gone, we can only hope Liverpool maybe even Chelsea join the race that way we can eak out as much cash as we can for the transfer fee. This needs to be resolved asap as it will only effect the team morale even more than it is already.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 17:37:47
Does more clubs entering the bidding mean we can eke out more money? If he wants to go to city he can just refuse to sign for anyone else and hang around til the summer.

{Ed002's Note - Which "more clubs" are these? The wages are enough to stop most sides being interested.}

4.) 15 Jan 2018 12:39:20
ozil ain't going Juve, heard of dybala?

Torreira off then?

We must be barking mad if we let him go.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 23 Jun 2019 21:18:57
According to who mate?
I did a quick check on the net and only thing i can fibd is from two tabloids who have both proven themselves time time again to be absolutely anything but truthful or reliable on anything at all let alone football.
I hope your basing your despondent post on more than those two sources Banbury mate as they both make sky look reliable in comparison to themselves.

{Ed047's Note - You mean you don’t trust the Metro and the current bun gunner62. Lol

2.) 23 Jun 2019 21:50:43
Sorry Ed047 mate call me cynical but 72 million false stories from the Metro have made me somewhat doubt they're integrity :-) as for that other thing, if I'm in a takeaway waiting for my food I choose to read the menu over and over than look at that, in fact I genuinely would rather watch paint dry that look at it.

{Ed047's Note - I’m with you on that one mate, odious rag of a paper.

3.) 23 Jun 2019 22:08:59
It's history is nothing short of vile in my opinion mate, I just wish the great British public would put it out of business once and for all.

{Ed047's Note - it’s circulation has halved since 2010 so it’s getting there.

4.) 23 Jun 2019 22:25:51
The sooner the better for everyone Ed047 mate, anyone who believes anything it says about anything is either extremely gullible or just reading what they want to see because they are feeling negative themselves in some way shape or form.

5.) 24 Jun 2019 02:07:34
Non-Brit here so limited exposure but all the tabloids look the same to me. Wouldn't trust the Metro, the Daily Mail, etc. as far as I could spit.

6.) 24 Jun 2019 07:41:36
Totally agree Wire, our club isn't in the best possible shape right now but it's ridiculous to base our despondency on what any of the scandlesheets try to spread, that's just looking for problems in my opinion, surely there are enough reasons to be concerned without looking for more from those who just want to fuel and feed off people's unhappiness.

7.) 25 Jun 2019 01:49:32
I often see them giving away heaps of that unmentionable rag for free in airports. I like to throw them all in the recycling bin. :)



12 Jun 2019 22:03:40
I see Torriera has said it’s better in Italy, that’s not looking to good.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 12 Jun 2019 22:51:13
What was he was talking about the weather, the food, the skiing or the lifestyle :-)

2.) 13 Jun 2019 13:14:48
Funny how the media picked that line up. Also said how he has years to adapt. He's not going anywhere.

3.) 13 Jun 2019 13:36:53
He says he misses the sun. Luckily its next due to make an appearance during an afternoon in early September, so all he needs to ensure is he has his camera with him and just take a picture of it. After that, rather than waiting for its next appearance in March 2020, he just needs to look at his picture. Job done.



30 May 2019 23:31:31
Just done the stay or go poll on sky sports some odd voting on there, I suspect Raver has messed about.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 31 May 2019 01:13:21
I voted for nearly everyone to go. If I’m honest I did put Iwobi to stay.

2.) 31 May 2019 09:40:17
Shows how poor we were when Iwobi was our man of the match, as a substitute. shortly followed by Jenkinson as he didn't play!

3.) 31 May 2019 15:12:18
The ones that have to be moved on are clear:


Should be moved on:

Already going:
Ramsey, Lichtsteiner, Suarez and Welbeck

The problem is that amounts to 12 players that have to be replaced on a limited budget, so Emery will need a couple more seasons to undertake the necessary surgery to the squad.

4.) 31 May 2019 19:23:52
Why wasn’t Emery on that poll.



29 May 2019 22:06:30
No surprise IMO, a win would have papered over the cracks, our defending is shocking

Looking at the bench it’s apparent we have zero depth in the squad

We got what I expected.

Another all English final

Great for English football.

Banbury Gooner

1.) 10 May 2019 22:43:17
Brilliant advert for English football mate.

Don’t start me on Xhaka I said the day he arrived he is a liability, we are in a real mess.

Denis Suarez? Is he as close to signing as the media suggest.

Me again

Shouldn’t FFP just cover the lot rather than different variations?

Banbury Gooner

{Ed002's Note - It varies depending if it is for the PL, the Championship and lower leagues or Europe. It applies to everyone. I know of only one side that has opted out of the European FFP by saying they will no longer compete. But if Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal etc. wish to continue competing, the UEFA rules will apply. In the PL, the PL rules apply etc.. It is really quite simple.}

Xhaka won’t be going anywhere, they like him too much that’s perfectly clear.

No skill? Really, interesting .

Disagree and so would Borg, McEnroe, Conners etc long before the super racket generation.

Look at most sports - I also remember when Jimmy White played Alison Fisher in a 3 frame charity match she hardly got on the table .

Banbury Gooner

{Ed001's Note - I didn't say there was no skill, I said he beat her not because of skill. She would have had to be much better skillwise to be able to overcome the physical difference.

As for the others, who cares? That is irrelevant, there is absolutely no reason that a woman can not reach the same skill level, if given the chance to start young enough. You are talking about ancient history, when girls were not allowed to play footie or play snooker/pool as kids, while boys were encouraged to do so. Nowadays it is not the 1950s (your era) and boys and girls often take part in the same games and sports from a young age. That is a part of why they are showing such improvements. But they are limited by the ability of those they play against and with. Play against and with better quality and they improve even further. However the physical disadvantage is an issue.}

It will NEVER be at the same level as the men’s game, I remember years ago Martina Navratilova played vitas gerulaitis and got hammered .

I’m not saying the level won’t change but the gap will always be there.

Banbury Gooner

{Ed001's Note - that is not skill though, that is about speed and strength. In a team game you can get away with some members who lack the speed and strength if they have the skill.}

Totally agree 62, you and I are close in age but you are older of course, this is the best Tottenham side I’ve seen, their biggest concern is keeping the manager and the key players, one more season without a trophy and you will see some sort of exodus IMO.
