As much as I loathe Horseface as England manager, he was brilliant for us.

What the hell have you got against horses?  :P

I had something against a horse once. Six months later I was out, with certain conditions attached.
Was that before or after you entered a dog at Crufts?

Is that why they nick name you Hay-cock?

No. It's why they nickname me Beast. That's if nicknames are what people write on the front door of your bedsit.

That might have been on the door, but was iality on the frame

Just behind The Nest in Norwich. Plenty of "craic" was had, apparently.

He certainly is a good defender and his style or skill set suits the way we play. I just think having played about 20 games to put him in the ‘best since McGrath’ category is a bit premature, which was what I commented on originally. Since God, I’d but the two Scandinavians ahead of Torres at the moment.
It’s pretty clear that when he’s in the team we’re a completely different prospect, so fingers crossed he’s not out again for any length of time.

Nah, I don’t reckon Okore or Augustinsson were as good as Torres.

You’re just being stupid now, we’re talking about central defenders, Ludwig is a left back 😉

So he's all fine and will be fit for Luton and there's nothing to worry about, right?... Right?

Sorry, he's in a full body brace and might make it back for 2026/7.

We are “cautiously optimistic” he’ll be fit for Luton. Going to be assessed later in the week.

RIP Pau.

Everyone making the same joke every single time a player is injured are pretty tedious to read

They could repeat it on every ad infinitum and it still wouldn't be as tedious as the crest review thread.

Or the VAR thread.

I consider Crest Review and Villa Park Redevelopment to be no-man's land.

I'd fear for my soul (and my sanity) if I set foot in them again.

I'd like to complain that since we ditched the North Stand, MotD hasn't mentioned our badge once and it hasn't even been checked at Stockley Park. Imagine if it was a Sky 6 logobranding...
