  1. Re: The Official NBA Thread How did Lillard not make the team,Durant and Westbrook barely play and still get in ,Lillard's been the third best player this year for me after Curry and Harden,LBJ is in 4th and is now back to his best,I'd take Lillard over CP3,Westbrook,Duncan,Cousins,Durant based on this year,Lillard has been clutch in at least three games this year,he destroyed San Antonio and are third in the west,what more does he need to do?
  2. Re: The Official NBA Thread Ain't been on here for a while ,some great off season moves obviously with LeBron going back home to Cleveland,however I fancy the Bulls to come out the east,Pau,Taj,Nikola and Joakim in the PF and C positions,I know everyone will be on about D Rose but it's that frontcourt rotation that seems lethal to me,either way I still see the Spurs coming out the west,espically now Westbrook and Durant are out for a while. Also looking forward to seeing how the Warriors do under Kerr and the Clippers now they don't have any of that Sterling stuff hanging over them in the playoffs,I think the east is locked up already so I'm looking forward to seeing if anyone can beat OKC before they get to the finals tbh as that's the interesting part of it all to me.
  3. Re: Official Newcastle Utd thread Missed the first sixty minutes but was pleased with the half an hour I did get to watch,Perez and Aarons look like they can cause people problems at this level and hopefully there two squad players Pardew will actually use as he does have a habit of freezing people out of the side. Still happy with the performance,can tell Cabella has a bit of class to him as well,just got more intelligence than anyone else on the pitch for us today,once he gets to full fitness I'm sure he'll be fantastic for us,overall a game against Man City is always going to be tough and we were missing De Jong and Tiote which will be a big plus next week for when they come back for Villa,first game I'll be going to in a while so I can't wait for it .
  4. Re: Official Newcastle Utd thread Ain't posted on here in ages ,first of all RIP to Liam Sweeney and John Alder,it's people like them that make Newcastle what it is in the first place,they'll be sorely missed. Now onto team matters,first of all what a superb transfer window we've had so far,I'd be really happy with it if Ferrerya comes in,I've always liked Riviere since his Toulouse days and at the start of the last season with Monaco he was superb,sure he went of the boil but there's enough talent there to suggest his £5 Million price tag is more than justified. I'm also extremely happy that we've got in an experienced creative player in De Jong,we need a more steady attacking influence as most of our attacking players all seem flair players who either seem to be superb or flatter to decieve,yet to completely contradict myself that's what excites me about Cabella,his definitely the player I've been most excited about us signing since Cabaye,just such a beautiful player to watch who I think is starting to his peak as a footballer,it might take him a while to adjust to the strength of the game but once he does he could be a player who his sold on for massive money (I know that's a negative mindset but it's bound to happen.) I'm not really bothered about Colback and I can see him been a rotation player sooner than later,I've liked the look of Perez but it's only pre season and I can't imagine he'll play that much anyway,and of course what I think is the best bit for last,I've got no idea why Arsenal wanted Debuchy and why they paid £12 Million for him,his not been the player I thought he'd be when we signed him after EURO 2012,I certainly don't think he was someone I thought we'd get £12 million for before the window started so I was very happy with that deal,I also liked the look of Janmaat in the world cup and his done well at Feyenoord but we'll see how it goes yet. This is what kind of annoys me about Ashley yet I admire at the same time,I'm pretty sure we'll finish top ten again now this season and yet he won't have spent a penny of money in terms of transfer fees for the best part of three years,considering we made a profit of £9.9 Million before the extra TV money kicked in how much money will he be making now?. I can't see us signing anyone after Ferrerya and I definitely hope we don't sign Remy and I think Ferrerya has ended any possibility of that happening,We'll try and sell Ben Arfa before the window's out and we might get a crazy bid for someone before the transfer window's out and replace them but I think were pretty much done,credit to Lee Charnley our new Managing Director as his certainly done his job quickly and effectively in this window. I hope we line up with this team against Man City Krul Janmaat Colo Yanga Haidara Tiote Sissoko Cabella De Jong Gouffran Riviere I'm certainly looking forward to the new season .
  5. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Well it's been all change at Ipswich so far,I've took a punt on a few players who have joined much bigger clubs and are lower rated,either normally works out that they rise and you have a good prospect or you sell them on when you realise they don't feature. Still one signing in particular has pleased me so far. Santiago ARIAS has completed his move to Ipswich Town from Hartlepool United for £6,000,000. Regular for PSV and Colombia,been linked to Manchester United quite strongly a few months ago and at 85 will rise next year if his a regular at PSV or moves elsewhere. This team with the except of Zieler is really quite poor,reminds me a lot of when I took over Notts County years ago,still I'll save some money as there's some good players on external market at the moment,I'll be signing a few more over the coming days and seeing what I can do internally as well. Just feels nice to be back in the setup and enjoying it once again in all honesty.
  6. Re: The Official NBA Thread I think Bosh is holding it all up personally,I thought the Heat's plan was for Bosh to take the money and get Melo but not it looks like his going back to New York,if Bosh leaves then would LeBron come back? I'm not so sure.
  7. Re: The Official NBA Thread So Indiana basically get rid of Danny Granger for Evan Turner who they probably won't even resign as he'll get more money from elsewhere and then he signs for there arch rivals at 2 years for $4.2 million,that's got to sting. I think Riley's got a few more of these types of moves in him as I can see him only signing Wade up to a short team deal or taking a bigger than reported discount for a longer term deal,also I'm not entirely sure why everyone's buying into LeBron wanting the max,just because there was report doesn't necessarily mean it's true,basically this whole Franchise is on his shoulders though,if he comes back so does Bosh on a smaller deal which he already said he was willing to take a paycut to do,if they could do somehow create another $3 Million in cap space to add another player to Mcroberts,Granger and Napier that would be scary. Even if Bosh does go back on his word and decide to leave for a max contract there in an enviable position with been able to go out and try and add Pau Gasol,it'll be interesting to see what they do with the point guard position as well,I'd imagine though for Danny Granger to have taken that deal that the big three will be coming back which I've always thought would happen,unless LeBron goes Cleveland it'll hurt his legacy too much to move elsewhere.
  8. Re: The Official NBA Thread I knew the Spurs would win haha ,so happy for the whole team after last year's travesty,just an awesome way to bounce back,if Manu played like this last year they'd have won back to back championships,but that shows the genius of Pop as he looked done to me yet came back and looked like his old self this year. As for the Lebron/Heat questions,it's entirely up to him but for me he should either stay in Miami or try and persuade Carmelo to go to Phoenix for less money with him as they could sign both free agents as far as I'm aware,a team with them two,Dragic (who's much better than Kyrie) and Bledsoe seems like a great option to me even though it hasn't been talked about much. And if the Warriors do get Kevin Love then they'll get to the Western Conference finals if they don't run into the Spurs,I'd trade Iggy instead of Klay but I doubt the Timberwolves would accept that.

  10. Re: Official Spanish La Liga Discussion Thread Looks like Atletico is disbanding already,Tiago looks like joining Diego Costa to go to Chelsea and now David Villa is supposed to be joining New York FC,I hope they have some money to spend with all of that and the miracle of last season but they have massive amounts of debt anyway. I can imagine Saul Niguez and Oliver Torres competing to take Tiago's place,Villa will be a massive relief of the wage bill and Costa was always going to leave anyway,just hope it doesn't go to badly wrong as last season was the best season from a club side ever in my opinion.
  11. Re: Official Newcastle Utd thread 17 year old Adam Armstrong is on the bench,hope he gets to come on and best of luck to him tonight,Cisse isn't even on the subs bench so it wouldn't surprise me if he left before the end of January too.
