The guy's been a disaster everywhere he's been, since leaving City. Nice fella and all that, but 3rd choice at Burnley, the state of it.

Opening Night Joe Hart:

Am I right in assuming that we'll be back to just a selection of games being shown live when the new season starts?

Yep, there was talk of showing every game while there's no crowds but apparently the clubs wanted too much extra money

Neco!!!!! The pop in the pub when we realised he was the scorer was Road Warrior esque as he's from the village next door. Fantastic young talent

Do you know what, for all the shit I gave his appointment he really has done well. He's blooded a lot of quality young players, and I honestly think our young talent at the moment is the best of the home nations. A fantastic scouting system and atmosphere to the point players are actively choosing us over England and England are gutted they didn't get Neco Williams (spoiler, he's from Cefn Mawr, his mam is, he would never have gone to England or she'd have twatted him, much like Amapdu and Brooks having old school Welsh mams) 

He started poorly and the Euros qualifying campaign was nearly a massive misfire, but credit where due he took a punt on Keiffer Moore and its completely turned our team around. Crazy how someone can suit international football far more than domestic, but I suppose that's much like Trescothick and Vaughan being better test players than first class. 

 

But yeah, it's good times to be a Wales fan. We're not fun to watch but results are what matter and we're unbeaten in 8

Big potential there with Neco. Had a couple of iffy performances but Klopp doesn’t give a shit and it’s not affected him so far. He’s unfortunate in that he’s stuck behind the best right back in world football (not called Matt Docherty) but he’ll get plenty of opportunities and at worst he’ll end up at another premier league club.

Klopp was telling people Wilson will be getting his chance this season too but if a Villa or Newcastle stump up the cash he’ll be gone I reckon. Big season for him, he’s something of a luxury forward but he either has to kick on or reinvent himself to make it at Liverpool.

Wilson probably needs to go to be honest. He's not about to get a game at Liverpool, and apparently Liverpool are in the argument for signing David Brooks along with Leeds, Leicester and S***s which would put him even further down the pecking order (although it's a bad signing for Brooks to be honest).

Somewhere like Sheffield United might suit him. 

Woodburn missed the bus and has gone backwards, it'd be a shame for it to happen to Wilson too as he's a quality footballer.

Yeah he’d definitely be better suited at a mid table team at this point. I’d have him over Shaqiri but he’ll barely get a game if he stays this year. 

I worked with Woodburn’s dad for a short while and he never once mentioned his son was shit hot at football. I think he’s just one of those players who are exceptional at youth level but that’s about their ceiling and they end up knocking about up and down the leagues.

Woodburn's love of Liquid in Wrexham has done him no favours either. He's had big injury problems too. And maybe it might have been too much too soon for him? 

Scoring a screamer in your first cap to save a euro campaign after coming off the bench at the crescendo of a "we're fucked now" solemn singing of the anthem by a sold out crowd at the Cardiff City stadium, with perfect timing tbf, might have put undue pressure on a 17 year old. 

But the saddest thing is that Woodburn is seen as a bust but Wilson as a good young talent, when Harry Wilson is about 3 years older than him.

Woodburn still has hope I reckon. Harry Wilson had a disastrous loan spell at Crewe and it was looking like his first cap (a 2 minute cameo against Belgium to stop England nicking him) would be his last. But he was somewhat of a late bloomer, so you never know.

I'm more worried about the GK situation with neither Hennessey or Danny Ward getting any games.

I must say this all seems a far cry from 2004-2010 under Toshack (poor bloke) when we were wholly reliant on Jason Koumas (of Tranmere and Cardiff City fame) for any creativity and routinely calling up League One and even Conference players to fill out squads.

"That Brian Stock of Doncaster is decent, apparently."

(That said, the away trips were cracking though, taking away 2-300 fans to all sorts of European cities before the rest of Wales cottoned on to how much fun they were after we started to do well)
