Re: REVIEW: It all started last July in Scotland

Great review. It really has been a brilliant season IMO. To recover the way we did, in many ways surpassed last season, where we seemed to be safe before Christmas then everyone was in autopilot. I do think McNeils almost forced inclusion saved us though. I love watching him play, as I do Ashley Bar...

Re: Who scored our best goal of the season?

Ward’s goal finished 5th last season behind Defour (Man U), Hendrick (Everton), Barnes (West Brom) & Barnes (West Ham) Yes I know. But I specifically can’t get how a single shot in a players own time (granted a good shot!) is better than a player quickly playing two one twos, making a chance ou...

We've had a few against us this season but we don't seem to shoot from distance that often.

Ward at Chelsea away?

Re: Jeff Hendrick

I’ll put my head above the parapet and stick to my guns from a few weeks ago.

He gets pelters because behind Lennon he is the worst player in the squad. Obviously that’s partly not his fault as he’s played out of position. But he’s visibly so short of confidence and the OP backs that up.
