I was talking about the situation with new squad restrictions. If the places are filled - the squad having been registered by the various deadlines according to which competition - there is no room for the new signing.

If a player is sold to make room for the new signing then one in-one out means the club is not hoarding.

The point is they'd have gone somewhere else and played there instead.

That's more likely. Could be an important rest for him with the bonus of Southgate having to look at alternatives.

So now we are through the Christmas fixtures, how is everyone feeling. I know Scamp will be bouncing, I’m happy enough we’re staying out of the trouble zone especially given the injuries we have been picking up. Everyone else is melting away from Liverpool, it is theirs to lose now and if they did it would be a choke of epic proportions - I don’t think anyone sees it happening.

I sort of see where you're coming from based on workrate and some ability.....but also, respectfully, disagree. He can be a right ****. Divey, cheaty, whiny, moany, shouty sort of in-the-refs-ear-the-whole-game sort of ****.

On top of the world Mr Weeze. As far as I can see, Norwich are gone, Bournemouth have enough quality to stay up but need to get some results soon, Burnley might be in trouble, Brighton could slip, Watford and Villa are both in with a shout of the drop but WHU, Newcastle, Saints, Everton and Arsenal are probably OK now, have enough quality and should be fine.

I pray, daily, for the Liverpool collapse but I just can't see it happening so I'm transitioning to just enjoying them rape everyone that turns up to play them. It's pretty impressive, even if their fans don't deserve it.

Ashley Young born in Stevenage Hertfordshire 28 miles north of London. Says it all then.

Yeah, it's kind of an empty void isn't it? He probably grew up thinking he was a Londoner, which explains the cuntish behaviour.
Then moved North and perfected the whingy / moany / woe-is-me sort of chip on his shoulder.

I’m gonna keep banging on about it. I know the term has become common to mean destroying another team, and it appears all the time in gaming chat. But, if you know someone who has actually been raped you would never ever use that word in a sporting context, nor would you keep quiet when others do.

Never watched such a sad game of football as I watched today, and I watch Spurs every week!!

A crucial 6 pointer game, and the players just didn't want it, stupid mistake after stupid mistake and giving the ball away at every opportunity. Some young lad from the academy was subbed on and he was the best player on the pitch for B'mth. He ran around looking to pass the ball and the rest of the team stood around like statues. Very sad day for the Cherries, if they survive another season in the prem, it will be a miracle.

When do their players start coming back from injury? When they're back at full strength, I think things will improve.

Bournemouth only have to finish above 2 out of the following; Aston Villa, West Ham, Burnley, Brighton and Newcastle... I think Norwich are done unless things change, and I think Watford will stay up.

Ake, Smith and Cook all back from injury, none of them look great today. King still off and Ramsdale out with something minor. Think Ramsdale has been B'mth's best player this season, unfortunately looks as though the players and the club have given up.
