Was not too keen on the Johnson purchase, especially for the price, but to be fair to him, he took that goal pretty well. Shame it was offside. These next two games will tell where we are. Win or lose, no pressure for me. He cannot fully shape his team until he sees us against top opposition and learns how we cope. I feel we were a little fortunate against Utd and on another day, they could have finished the game off in the first half. That was an eye opener, now for the real thing with two teams showing a little form. Utd clearly aren't.

I know some (if not most) of you are not overly interested, but it was good to see our women come from behind to record an emphatic victory to go top of the league. A shaky start to life in the top flight, but it appears they are getting to grips with it now. Our U21 are also top of the league and firing on all cylinders; I've won a nice few bob on them of late.

The table does not lie but even as a long term fan, I am unhappy with some of their play. The defence has improved but any team other than Fulham would have scored at least one of the chances they had in the first half while Spurs should have scored at least 5 by half time. Some of the Spurs interplay is top class but they still go to sleep every so often. Kulusevski is head and shoulders their best all round player so I hope he is not top of Levy's list to sell in July. It is sad to see England playing Walker, Kane and Trippier regularly when they could still have been at Spurs. At least they are well rid of Vinicius.

Report Aspro October 24, 2023 12:48 PM BST
England's top scorer, using goals per cap, is Jimmy Greaves. Second is Harry Kane and third is Gary Lineker. Notice the link?

Let's get an Englishman up front, it's in our DNA. Jamie Donley is our only hope, but he's a few years away yet. We need to look closer to home. Any suggestions?

Sonny is great, but you can't have a No 9 who can't head a ball. We need an out-and-out striker, now!

With Bentacur returning soon (replacing Sarr if he can return to his best), we're pretty good all round. A decent striker is the only missing link, anybody else is just cover now.

It's not like we have a choice. Even before the touch-paper was lit, it was clear that something wasn't right, but this could be a good thing, if lessons are learned from it. At this stage it is only a blip and if we can get through a tough Wolves, we may be able to face Villa and City with a little more confidence. Best to stay positive me thinks.
