According to Unsworth, Matthew Pennington gave one of the best displays he has seen from any player at the U21 age against Arsenal. Now Pennington is 22 and I know there is a big step up from U21 to the first team but has anyone seen him play and is he nearly ready?

Only just back after a long injury lay off.

Yes I know, however when he is fully fit is he good enough for the first team squad?


3.) 07 Feb 2017 23:49:32
He has played first team last season. Didn't do anything wrong in the couple of games he played. Even Koeman wants him fit and pushing the first team, that's how highly he is rated.

Thanks dentielad, we could do with him in the first team squad. Would like to see him given a chance this season,
Mike.

Thought he played well at right back when Seamus was out. Pity he got injured himself. So if he plays centre half then he's going to prove very useful.

If any one doubts that the kids deserve playing after today I give up.

Looks great so far doesn't it! We are one-third towards getting sufficient points to keep us in the Premiership next season.
We are above all of the fancied teams for European places apart from City.
We are above all of the so called second tier teams.
We are way above the group that we usually get associated with like West Ham and Stoke.
Yes we have to keep it up until the January window so we can consolidate by bringing in a few new players to strengthen the squad.
But if we do end up at the end of the year in a strong league position I can't see any player ignoring us, let's face it who would want to play for relegation fodder like West Ham or Stoke?

According to reports as they say Martinez got a 10M pound pay-off from Everton. Another bad decision to sign a contract with him that guaranteed full payment for the remaining period of his contract if he was sacked. Surely performance criteria should be built into any managers contract.

Sure off to bigger things to sit on the bench. He would be better off at a "smaller" team like us!

{Ed002's Note - But Everton has not shown any interest in the player.}

Obviously you have to be happy and satisfied with the result, however letting in three goals at home is not acceptable. When three ahead we allowed them to dictate the game, not acceptable. At half-time Williams was knackered and should have been replaced, same with Barry.

In the summer we need at least one new centre-back and maybe two. We have had many games over the last few weeks an it is hardly surprising that the older players can't last 90 minutes. Hopefully as the program gets less intense we can move forward and pass at least one of the teams above us. Liverpool are in free fall and United and City are not doing overly well. We can do it, COYBB.

According to the press City are after him to partner Stones.

Hope we don't go for him, at 33 he is too old. We need someone in the 23-25 age bracket who can be good for years in their prime.

Thanks Ed025. I also hope Koeman stays. Without knocking Kenwright it is about time that he left the recruiting to professionals.

Firstly let me say that I can see a lot of positive thing happening to our club. Moshiri, Koeman and Walsh are great additions and we seem to be moving forward from a business viewpoint. However, on the business side I will not be happy until I see the new stadium on the dock signed and sealed. I have been through one "ring fenced" scenario and I don't want to go through another.
On the playing side Koeman has done a lot of good things and I am very please with what I see. However I was positive about Martinez during his first year and then it went belly up. Koeman has been fortunate in having Lukaku who Martinez signed and also having the benefit of Davies and Holgate coming through to the first team. I know he is the one that gave them the chance but he did not bring them to the club. No doubt Koeman has improved the existing players especially from a fitness viewpoint. However he still has a lot of work to do in recruiting players and keeping key players like Lukaku.
So summing this up I see a lot of positives with the Koeman reign but I am not over the moon just yet. Let's see how we finish off the year and what reinforcements we bring in in the summer before we get too carried away with this new found optimism.
Mike.

Yes Hrowblue, I used to walk from Arlescourt Road, down Leyfield Road to the Triangle to get the football bus which took us directly to Goodison. Nobody in our road had a car let alone a private jet but we were happy, mainly because everyone was in the same situation and nobody told us we should be otherwise. I believe our upbringing in Liverpool taught us how to deal with the ups and downs that life brings unlike Heitinga who is obviously a spoilt brat.

My life has taken a turn for the worse as well. I used to have my own private transportation when we lived in L12, it was called a pram in those days and I had a stylist picking my clothes, my mum actually. Now 70 odd years latter I get my clothes from Amazon and we travel economy, tough times indeed. On of the things that has not changed over those years is that I spend the week looking forward to the next Everton game.

Not sure that is correct Woburnblue. Most of these young players have enough money to last them the rest of their lives unless they are stupid with it. You only had to look at Stones face when he was at Goodison several weeks ago to see he is not happy. Most of these young players want to be successful and play on a regular basis and if Stones continues the way he is doing he will not be playing regular football, at least for City.

Yes I was thinking exactly the same when I wrote the above message Kingo. Stones is an excellent example of a player who, for whatever reason, made a poor decision and could well live to regret it.
