Hmm..that's why I hedged my bet by saying at least one!😁
Mad Hendrick?...That is a good question..one which I have pondered over for a long time.... being Dutch could be enough but probably more to it than that!...A good man and a generous neighbor...single handedly took down a tree for me a couple of weeks back without charge...some disease in the tree and a threat to the power line..I digress... he walked across Kansas and the UK among other places , His family suffered, along with most, somewhat under Nazi occupation but survived and came to USA in the 40's,,,his elder brother was an early Top Pro Soccer player over here fwiw and he has "done" a thing or two...but still "Mad"!
Off topic but of interest?
Nice bit of realism there Martin.One swallow doesn't make a summer and all that.
In truth I haven't watched the last few games.I will wait until there is a consensus among the posters that I trust who say we are improving.
Disasi - I always presumed he was a temp brought in till some of Chalobah, Badisahille & Fofana got fit, or Colwill grew up.
And probably signed by the same scout that went for Badiashille at Monaco.
But so far he has been better than any of them , even Badiashille who looked young but full of promise. I guess he is the new first choice, and right now ahead of even Silva.
Mind at 25 he should look like a proper CB, he is 5 years off his peak. The others are 8-9 years before (or after in Silva's case).
If CreamCakes ever need proof that buying unproven 21 years is high risk both in terms of performance AND injuries, Disasi is the evidence.
Maatsen? Colwill for me by a long way. And I am still getting a buzz off Gallagher being captain, I have always had my fingers crossed for him.
Good to see Gallagher finally played in a proper position, shame Mount rarely got the chance to play 8.
