He changed nationalities after getting senior caps?! Is that even allowed?

Non competitive fixtures I'm guessing 🤷‍♂️

I had a dream about him last night. Told him he was captain.

Random thought of the day:

If we'd have signed Doucoure in Silvas first summer when we got Richy (which by all account we tried) do we think he might still be in a job. The main downfall for Silva was the lack of work rate and power in midfield.

I'm glad it didn't work out as we ended up with Carlo but just wonder if Doucoure along with Gueye would have been enough?!

We had some utterly inept managers back to back. Thank fuck they all left

No, his ideas were pretty awful.

At the beginning of last season where everything was going against us, the penalty VAR decisions like the one at Brighton etc, we felt so hard done by and up against it.

In hindsight, I am so glad that all happened. It was the best thing that could have happened. We wouldn't have a world class manager and our first world class player in decades at the club right now.

Let's not forget the right winger he wanted and didn't get either... Both those may well have made a big difference.

However like you said it all worked out waaay better anyway so nothing but happy feelings towards those missed signings.

It’s been the longest night ever.

34 years of darkness apart from when the moon came out from behind the clouds of the briefest of moments in 1995/6.

I probably feels a close connection to both.

Surprised to hear that, what’s your link with Mali?
