    I saw Garbutt post about it. Took it in good humour.

    Considering he's been on 28k per week for the last 5 years, he probably doesn't give a fuck.

    FWIW I donít see those issues as part of BLM. If anything itís white people perverting the movement for their own agendas.

    Not just that, his assist and general play today is pretty exciting. Ole is improving players and making good signings. Can't moan too much right now.

    Just wish I was there 😔

    I imagine we've paid less than 20% of that when he was on loan this season. Decent enough at League One level but a lot of our nobhead fans thought he'd sign permanently

    He's improving players by making sure there's competition for positions. So much so that deadwood like Lingard and Perirea are relegated to the bench or not in the squad at all even when we can have 5 subs.
    If that doesn't make them improve then they should be shipped off to make room for players that can compete.

    Still a long way back though, we need to get a champions league spot and win a cup to make this season a success. All of this is still in the balance.

    Don't think Lings and Andreas will be there long to be honest. I agree, it was a bit sad to see McTominay and Fred on the bench, but it also shows we've got healthy competition for places.

    It also means players are less likely to have you over a barrel for contracts etc if you're not desperate to keep them.

    Ole has done a fantastic job to be honest. He has taken so much stick. Next season will be a huge test because we have to close that gap on the top, but on current form we are top of the table, so it's not all doom and gloom.

    Still think we need a striker and maybe a CB and left back. For me Shaw is not good enough. Solid but no end product. AWB is getting the assists now, Shaw doesn't seem to do anything.

    I'd suggest Williams take Shaw's place if he continues to be a little crap. Competition! :)

    Williams is still very young. He could do with a worldie of a LB to learn from. But that position will be his eventually. Shaw is not going to cut it.

    Why does Shaw still look drastically overweight?

    I don't think he is. He's just got a fairly big frame, like rooney.

    I don't have an issue with his application, just his ability. I think he is really trying but sadly I don't think he's good enough for a title challenging team, squad competition or not.

    He's been consent recently and good, but isn't showing levels of improvement that AWB is in attack.

    Shaw is decent and our best lb by some way, he isnt fat he just has a big arse. Considerably better than William's is at the moment imo.

    He is our best, but he is still not good enough. That header in the spurs game was the final straw for me.

    As a reminder of our very recent shitness Sanchez and Smalling have had their loan periods extended until the end of the Serie A season (August)

    Shaw actually gets into great positions going forward and has good link up with Rashford. It always ends up as nothing though! I don't know if that is down to him or the strikers sometimes. He is also capable of a last ditch goal saving tackle. I'd have replacing Lindelof as a higher priority tbh.

    A top CF is the biggest priority though, but can't see there being much going in the market.

    Imagine doing that as a keeper with your team points adrift at the bottom

    Hector looked a bit worried after the game, Cedric looks good. Well done Arteta, changed things when Norwich getting on top. Laca not good again and think heís on his way out. Big game against the Wolves.
