KunT and Guille Amor (crazy names, crazy guys) out the door, then.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

I’m kinda intrigued of the logistical element of it. It’s in Miami, has he happened to bump into Enoch there? If so, where’s the shirt come from? I can understand him perhaps having some in his luggage just in case he needs to hold it up next to an NFL type (I presume he’s at the Super Bowl this weekend) but the name and number printing?

Or has he pre-planned to meet up with him and have this photo opportunity? If so......why?!

he looks really well, actually, certainly still in shape. I'd be surprised if he couldn't still do a pretty decent (preposterously endowed) Bambi on Ice act on a pretty competitive step of the non league pyramid.

Browsing through the midweek results whilst waiting for peace to break out, I noticed that Toumani Diagouraga scored for Morecambe. Surprised to find that it was as recent as 2017 that he was at Leeds. A lot has happened since then.

subbed on 84 mins, hit the bar after being given a decent chance, but didn't do much else, spurned one other decent opportunity. i'm happy to be spinning the wheel and taking a chance on big kev after that.

Dunno - if Eddie had been happy to play the super-sub role, I'd rather we'd kept him. But he wasn't, so...

obviously speculative at this stage, but watching eddie passively standing by his marker as arsenal approached the newcastle goal waiting for a bit of creativity elsewhere makes me hopeful that our enforced twist and not sticking could turn out to be the making of our season. he was good at getting to crosses ahead of his marker, but i'm hoping that and more from kev. give big kev a couple more weeks and hopefully we'll start to see he's got more power and variety to his game.

Hard to be harsh on Eddie his goals helped pick up 5 points if memory serves.

Difficult to judge him given he never really had a run.

Similar for big kev going to be difficult for him to make an impact from the bench particularly given his fitness issues but he's clearly talented.

Neither Eddie or JKA are what we need/needed if we are being honest

Eddie always looks like he was born about 30 years too late. He would be brilliant as an off the shoulder 2nd striker in a partnership in a classic 442 playing with a big centre forward.

The last one of those though was Owen and he basically went extinct about 15 years ago.

I suspect Bamford and Nketiah playing together in a two would do very well. They cover for each other's deficiencies.

Trouble was that when we played the two together, we lost control of midfield, which reduced the opportunities for the front two whilst putting more pressure on the defence. With (a lot) of luck, once JKA is match fit he might combine some of the attributes of Bamford and Nketiah - at least he seems to know where the goal is situated.

aye. we tried that for the whole second half against fulham, it didn't work, the only mitigating circumstance being that it was tried as a result of pablo going off injured. as well as the reasons above it hindered bamford's game as he didn't make his normal runs as eddie was in the way.

yeah, but it's the old thing about 4-4-2 & variants thereof, leaves you light in other parts of the pitch. i think for Eddie to make a good living out of football his best chances to do this might be one or more of:

(a) drop a very long way below PL big six standard, maybe even to league one level;
(b) reinvent himself a bit as a guy who can play at least tolerably well with his back to goal etc, in the way that late career jermaine defoe did; and/or
(c) reinvent himself as a guy who can play at least tolerably well as a wide player in a 4-3-3.
