Welcome to this, the latest televisual feast form yours truly.

It was Stoke away and this meant even if we had ‘done em’ with some aplomb’, it would be still be frankly questionable to suggest that there would be an awful lot to say.

In this bitesize piece of technicolour joy I whistle through a few highlighted points but then that perhaps deserves the most thought is ‘What the flip are we doing with Hugo as Captain?’

It makes no sense from a good many perspectives, but surely the most primary remit of the Captain of a football team is communicate earnestly with his peers?

Lloros looks like the sort of chap who would be much happier doing something a shade more benign than barking orders at people.

    RealFan?

    This is your final strike.

    You’ve decided that the blog is a figure of fun, opposed to something you want to be part of.

    Opta stats – until you develop something that is universally regarded as credible – is the defining metric.

    One more niggle comment and I assure you, guarantee you, you will absolutely not be back.

          It won’t be read

            Yes it does. You’ve been niggling away for months. Your crusade is over. Editor’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

              No, I’ve addressed your sniping on numerous occasions, but you want pursue your fuckwit campaign to prove all manner of weird shit such as ‘a player’s influence on the game’ even when they don’t touch the ball.

              By this metric you desperately mad cunt, my dog is great painter.

              Thanks for your resignation. It’s accepted. And not a shame. It’s a blessing.

    For the First Time Ever I do think that Hugo is not our best keeper

    What a load of bollocks. Hugo is what makes our high line work. Sure there will come a day when we have to replace him but it isn’t now. Ridiculous how fans jump on players when they make a mistake or have something go wrong. I really don’t blame them for following the money, when I read stuff like this and some comments here and on twitter.

    for the past 12 month Hugo has been making many mistakes for club and country. He needs to sort him self out asap or he will be moved on.

    • Harry Hotspur April 9, 2018 at 7:57 am

      Hugo was better under AVB where he was encouraged to play almost as a sweeper…

    Verts as captain? ☺️☺️😂😂😂😂😂 you have got to be kidding. Yes he’s been awesome of late but let’s roll back to when we was thumped by city a few seasons back! At the start of the game in the tunnel he was leaning against the wall like he couldn’t give a flying F***, was no supersede we got smashed that day! That’s not captain minerals in the slightest. It should be Kane or dembele or who ever has the most to say who can back it up.

      Whats your high line of work?
      You work for HITC?

  • NickTheYid April 8, 2018 at 9:59 pm

    For me he is the next part of the squad that need upgrading, he was a great signing for us at the time but I fear we have moved past his level plus he hasn’t progressed since he has been at the club.

    His kicking has always been terrible and has never got any better, he could always be relied soon to be our sweeper keeper and clear the ball before the opponent got to the ball but he doesn’t even do that anymore.
    Imo it’s time he was moved on.

    PS don’t even get me started on the fact he is captain.

    • Horndog 🇺🇸 April 8, 2018 at 10:51 pm

      So what do you think about Hugo as Captain?

      • NickTheYid April 8, 2018 at 10:56 pm

        All I’ll say is it should be an outfield player imo, I honestly wouldn’t have a problem with Hugo being captain if he acted like one but I’ve never once seen him act like a captain. I don’t want to be to hard on the guy but if it was up to me Verts would be captain.

        • Syd April 9, 2018 at 4:22 am

          I think Jan would be a terrific captain. He deserves it as well

          • Harry Hotspur April 9, 2018 at 9:21 am

            He’s been immense but he too isn’t a naturally vocal character.

            My picks would be Toby (hohoho) and Kane who to my mind is already doing the job…

    • TyredMan 🚯 April 8, 2018 at 11:23 pm

      Can defend the near post either.

      • TyredMan 🚯 April 8, 2018 at 11:23 pm

        Can? not
