Jackson

I read your post further down analysing you transfer business and I agree up to a point. The press like to exaggerate the ways. I think United's window was good as we addressed the areas we needed to with proven EPL players, however I don't think it was as outstanding as some pf the press report.

The comeback to your point about the negativity being levelled at Chelsea is probably to do with Conte's public utterings and how the press have then added their own spin to that. I love your loyalty to your team but there were a bunch of players that Conte allegedly wanted that didn't arrive or went elsewhere. However, you have bought reasonably well (Drinkwater? ) and lost some players who were at the end of their careers or who you thought were surplus to requirements.

I also think Spurs's window was at best average whilst Arsenal's was a disaster. City are said to have had a great window yet their CBs continue to look dodgy and they didn't fix that. Same for Liverpool. Shiny new forwards whilst their defence looks shocking.

I think it's a 3 way fight between us, City, and you, Liverpool or Spurs 4th or 5th and I think Arsenal may even struggle to finish 6th this year.

Looking forward to a great season and some quality banter.

I respect your post and your analysis.


2.) 04 Sep 2017 01:28:05
If Tottenham switch back to a back three of Sanchez, Alderweireld and Vertonghen with Aurier and Rose as wing backs I personally think they will have the best defence in the league. Aurier and Rose are as complete as they come at attacking and defending. Moses and Alonso aren't IMO and disagree all you want that's just me not being biast. If they had Conte as manager I think they would win the league they just seem to lack that winning mentality. Kane and Alli are as good as they come at going forward.


3.) 04 Sep 2017 06:14:12
Yeah, Conte's comments obviously weren't going to help in that regard. Right on that. For Spurs, I think Aurier made their window decent. He's going to be ridiculously good for them and he's going to bomb down that right flank all game long. Terrific pick up. But like us they're still lacking depth in certain departments.


4.) 04 Sep 2017 06:25:34
Agreed AJH, the thing for me was spending over 150 million and not improving the squad. Yes we improved in defense but we went backwards in attack and midfield. l, and still don't have a left back if Alonso goes down. We will be okay but it could have been much much better.


5.) 04 Sep 2017 12:29:01
Rahman is back now too.


6.) 04 Sep 2017 13:31:19
A few comments to make on the above posts.
Baba will not be fit until Christmas.
Matic was average at best last year and truly awful the season before. I see both Drinkwater and Bakayoko contrubuting more than Matic
I do think that Morata has a lot to prove but I'm reminded how disruptive and ordinary Costa was for the second half of last season. So I'm pleased to have got Morata and retained Michy.
On our so called spending and I'm not sure of the exact figures but if you include our sales at the last window and this latest window, we have spent virtually zero and that's NOT counting any fee we receive for Costa.


7.) 04 Sep 2017 14:20:41
Matic may have been average last year but so was Drinkwater. Looking at the top teams I think we all have areas we would have liked to see improved but for whatever reason it didn't happen. I think it could be fascinating this year, City were most people's favourites last year and they weren't great, Liverpool started like a train and faded badly, it's great we have so many teams competing.


8.) 04 Sep 2017 20:05:38
That average player had more assists last season than any MU player last season including Pogba and Mata. Also had far better statistics than any of present Chelsea and MU midfielders. So you can be grateful to that SOB Jose Mourinho for doing amazing scouting job.


9.) 04 Sep 2017 22:16:11
Antibot, I've found cross referencing or comparing player statistics from different teams a total waist of time!
Matic may well play better for a Utd in the same way Kante played well for us last year.
Also Bakayoko and Drinkwater will have completely different stats with us than they had with their previous clubs.
You have to take into account so many variables, team shape, team style of play, standard of team mates . It makes statistics redundant.
You can compare player performance within a team and judge and compare there contribution to the team and result and that's why I stand by my statement they Matic was bang average last year and truly awful the season before!
Anyway, player performances are always a good debating point.


10.) 05 Sep 2017 08:59:06
Tom Blue(I believe that B is for blue).We probably wouldn't have this discussion if you watched MU this season. They look secure and confident.And that's what Chelsea has lost.If player doesn't play attractive football doesn't mean that player is average.That's why statistics exist so one can have more objective picture. Yes,Matic might have worse or better statistics at MU the same way that Drinkwater and Bakayoko can have better or worse statistics at Chelsea than at Leicester and Monaco.But it's more likely that Matic and Drinkwater will statistics closer to theirs previous clubs since both players have PL experience unlike young and promising Bakayoko.But to say that someone who had more assists than best assistants at MU and player is allegedly CDM by vocation average season doesn't stand.The player who was regular first choice CM in 2 midfield in the club that won PL with superiority can't be taken seriously.
I also believe in Conte's hard work approach.But experience is very very important in the squad.


11.) 05 Sep 2017 09:44:18
The "B" is for Baldwin not blue but a good guess!
The first full season under Jose's management Matic was outstanding. In my opinion the following season he was, along with rest of team (except Willian) awful and last season average!
You are correct statistics can be used for objective debate but no more than that.
An example would be and according to sky, Drinkwater has a better long ball success rate than Cesc. This stat doesn't take into account so many factors in renders it pointless! I
My point about Matic and his performance was NOT based on stats but my view using my eyes at virtually every home and away game.
He may well go on to be outstanding for Utd but given his performances over the last two seasons, in my opinion, he is no great loss and £40mil was a good money for Chelsea to receive.


12.) 05 Sep 2017 20:56:38
As you just said your opinion is subjective based on your perception. It is absolutely pointless to argue about subjective standing. People are allowed to think that earth is flat even nowdays. I will always defend your right to have different opinion to mine.


13.) 05 Sep 2017 21:36:28
And I will defend your right to have an opinion along with every orher football fans right to have an opinion!
Just for good orders sake. I never argue, I debate, inquire, ask questions, sometimes agree but I'm never patronising!


14.) 06 Sep 2017 08:33:52
I am really sorry if you had an impression that I've been patronising you or anyone else. That wasn't my intention. I am gnostic and I believe in arguments and facts and I am not relying on my impressions Sometimes things are different from the way we see them.


15.) 06 Sep 2017 11:28:50
Yep, sometimes things are different from the way we se them!

Good win over Spurs, but what is happening at Chelsea? The number (and quality of some) players you are being linked with is bizarre, and this morning one of the papers suggests the club are sounding out new Managers. It feels like there is going to be some panic buying in themlast week of the window (and I know how that feels) . From the outside, how can this happen 6 months after winning the League? I know you can't legislate for Costa's behaviour but do you see Conte still being here come Christmas?

AJH

1.) 23 Aug 2017 09:04:56
Paper nonsense, I'd imagine Chelsea fans with some common sense aren't being drawn into it. We have signed 3 very good young players so far, wouldn't be surprised if Conte and the board bring in a few more before the window closes. I am excited for the season and seasons to come with Conte. He is the future of Chelsea, would be silly to get rid.


2.) 23 Aug 2017 09:20:08
To be honest we started badly last season, bought two of very good players at the end of last summer too, they were considered panic buys too ( Luiz, Alonso ), nine months later they have an épi medal around their necks. People fail to understand that football has and will always be a team game.

Quality were being linked to?! I don't see the problem, for the most it's been rumeurs then again we've tried to bring in the right players for a reasonable price not been easy and to be fair we've done okay. Rufiger just 23, German international, Bakayoko 22 one of the best young mids in Europe, Morata well what can I say it was either him or Rom and to be honest he isn't half bad . Add to that the quality in our side Hazard, Kanté, Aepilicueta, Courtois, Pedro, Luiz, Alonso plus Fabregas love him or hate you must admit he brings something to the party, Christensen could also be considered a new signing the boy looks pretty good on and off the bam too.
Unfortunately the press is always going to blow things out of proportion three more signings in terms of depth and we'd be fine, the names you think are so strange being linked to us are mostly starters for their club and are players with either Prem experience or experience in their various leagues something that would go a long way for us.

I can see why there's a cause for concern and why united and city are favorites but if the Chelsea of last season showed me one thing it's that the game is all about team work, hard work and a dash of Eden Hazard. So thanks for your concern but I can't wait to have The not so special one back at the bridge.


3.) 23 Aug 2017 09:38:05
Come back and talk to us in December AJH when you've actually played a few teams of note. Then we see who's manager is being talked about more by the media, iv got a funny feeling it won't be Conte.


4.) 23 Aug 2017 10:06:20
I don't think Conte is going anywhere. He has been making noises to get the best squad possible for this season but looking at the weekend and the spurs game, he showed his class. Spurs were caught cold and on reflection offered little.
We have a first 11 and we need squad players and I think all of the players we've been linked with, as underwhelming as they are, would be able to do a job for us. I'm not worried for the season ahead.


5.) 23 Aug 2017 10:07:56
I seen that aswell last night I wouldn't believe it. I think it was the 'talkChelsea' guys that started it. I won't get into them but they are full of bs. They also state then too we are bringing in Tuchel because of his enthusiasm for playing and working with youth. Made me laugh considering we've either sold/ loaned all of our valuable youth players.


6.) 23 Aug 2017 10:51:29
I have now been a season ticket holder for 56 years. I have enjoyed all the highs but suffered a lot more lows.
Without doubt the happiest times have been the Roman era. Continued success at home and abroad has given our club a global presence.
I'm not sure how accurate this statistic is but I think the average term of a Chelsea manager under Roman is about 14 months.
With one exception (Carlo) I've anticipated and in most cases expected our mangers to be shown the door but if our club gives Conte the tin tack then that will be it for me.
Conte is the best thing that's happened to our club for decades. I am no longer dreading a press conference and I enjoy the way we play but most of all I love having a manager who behaves like a very passionate fan.


7.) 23 Aug 2017 12:09:33
TomB: Superb comment from another long term supporter. Chelsea under Roman want a coach who does just that and offers an opinion about what is needed, nothing more. Like you say Conte has been a breath of fresh air because he almost appears to be one of us with that touchline enthusiasm but remember in a different way, Mourinho was that breath of fresh air but when he made demands his first tenure ended when it should not have and by the time he kicked off second time around he knew he was finished; mind you the Hector, Rahman and Djilobodji transfers would have inflamed anyone. We have to accept that in all out time supporting Chelsea was and is and will be a rollercoaster of emotions.


8.) 23 Aug 2017 12:05:28
i agree in many ways but when hazard and pedro are back fully fit we and cahil and fabregas we shpuld have a starting 11 like this. courtois moses alonso cahil luiz azpi. bakayoko kante hazard pedro/ willian morata. bench den will be . cabalero rudiger christianson willian/ pedro fabregas batshuayi maybe drinkwater all of a sudden we have a good line up and strong bench no panic here we all would love 1 more top class player im sure.


9.) 23 Aug 2017 14:07:13
Honestly, AJH, I think things just look worse right now than they really are. Once Hazard, Bakayoko and Pedro are all back and fully fit it'll already look better. Our CBs are pretty damn awesome. Rüdiger, Luiz, Azpi, Christensen and Cahill. Man, that's good. Hazard, Pedro, Willian and Musonda should have the inside forward positions covered between them. 4 for 2 positions is good depth in my opinion.

Only thing we need right now is another CM, and a wingback (or 2). They don't have to be world class (though Alex Sandro would make our team so damn good), but they have to be good. Take the Ox for example. Is he world class? Hell no. But he's good, and he's young enough to get to a higher level once he sticks to a single position. I could definitely see him being an improvement on Moses at RWB.
Drinkwater is bang average though, I'll give you that. I wish the club would pursue a guy like Goretzka or Rabiot.


10.) 23 Aug 2017 15:33:33
Squad needs more depht, CM is a must as well as Left midfielder. Moses is amazing.


11.) 23 Aug 2017 17:36:35
Jackson mate, it was Drinkwater I was thinking of. I agree the press are whipping it up but Conte seems to be letting his mouth run a bit loose, he may be frustrated but it doesn't seem wise to be so candid.

I know you thought I was disprespectful about Cont recently suggesting he was unhinged (can't remember the exact phrase) and his last conference was much calmer and in control so maybe he has chilled a little. He does seem high maintenance though and I can see him exploding at some point.

I agree that as Champions you will be right up there, I expect your u, City, and hopefully United to be slugging it out, possible too early to see if we have truly turned a corner.


12.) 23 Aug 2017 18:10:35
A United fan telling us our manager seems abit high maintenance!
Oh the irony!


13.) 23 Aug 2017 22:31:54
I think you used "monkey with a machine gun" or something, AJH :-P He did seem to strike a frustrated figure earlier this month, but he's been fine since a week or so ago. I don't think Conte will be the one to stay 5 years at the club, but I think he can do an excellent job in bringing our club back to the level it belongs before moving on. So I certainly hope we keep him for another season or 2.

The big difference with Mourinho's last season with us is that the players seem to fully buy into Conte's vision. The way they followed his lead against Spurs said it all. They're going to fight for him, and for each other. That said, United and City both have a stronger squad with more quality in my opinion. A Manchester club will win the title, and I'm guessing it'll be United. I just want us to get top 4 and do decently in CL for this season.


 

 

08 Aug 2016 11:36:31
Predictions boys? If Arsenal sign a couple of top class players I fancy them but they probably won't. Scousers squad has no depth and whilst City have a strong squad and shiny Pep I think they are transitioning.

We have improved but I worry it will take too long to find the right team and formation. As for Chelsea, Kante was a good signing but your new manager seems as mad as a box of frogs. Are you optimistic?

AJH

1.) 08 Aug 2016 12:03:34
You're a United fan, right? Just to be sure :-)
I think you guys should be firm favourites to win the title. You brought in Ibra, spent a decent amount on a good player who had a fantastic season (Mkhi) and a young defender with good potential (though a little erratic for me from what I've seen, which is admittedly little) . Now you've also just spent a world record amount on Pogba, which is bonkers in my opinion. He's very talented, but I don't even know what his best position is and I don't know where Mourinho is going to use him. To get all of your best players on the pitch, Pogba would have to play deeper in midfield. But he's never proven that he can be a tempo setter, nor a great defensive mid. This was painfully clear during the Euros when Deschamps tried him in deeper midfield. I think it's a bit of a puzzling acquisition myself, especially since Ed002 has repeatedly stated that Pogba didn't actually want the move himself.
However, firm favourites in my book. No one should come close after the amounts you've spent over the last years.

We will be very lucky to get top 6 this season with the defense as it is. Our midfield and attack should be very good, especially if Chalobah gets minutes. He's an absolute stud in midfield. But our defense is one of the worst in the Premier League. We'll have another season like the last one if the club don't bring in a top CB and fullback.

City's buys haven't impressed me one bit. They've got an injured CM in Gundogan, a decent (but not spectacular) attacker in Nolito and a young winger in Sane. From what I've seen Sane doesn't seem that extremely talented (he is speedy though), and to spend that amount on him is insane for me. Jesus is an interesting one as he's clearly got world class potential, but the step up from the Brazilian league will be huge and I doubt he'll adapt immediately.

Arsenal are good, but they can't challenge for the title with what they have right now. You'll blow them out of the water.
And then you've got Liverpool and Spurs who have good squads, but I don't feel they have what it takes to go toe to toe with you guys.

So in short, the trophy will go to the red half of Manchester. Congrats.


2.) 08 Aug 2016 12:28:12
You're winding me up aren't you? City's squad was strongest before they started buying, and your lot ran away with it 2 years ago. I think its really open but we (United) still have a couple if weaknesses that need to be addressed.


3.) 08 Aug 2016 13:09:19
Without being biast it's definately between City or United. I do think United may sneak it though as City's best players are too injury prone for me. I think we could finish third but that depends on Zouma coming back as soon as possible and Conte starting Aina over Ivanovic. Until we bring in a top centre back to partner Zouma and a left back then we have no chance with our defence.


4.) 08 Aug 2016 13:14:41
I'm dead serious. City's squad is good in attack, with Aguero, Silva and KdB. I don't believe the addition of Sane will improve their attack that much, at least not immediately. Their midfield hasn't been that good since Yaya really cared about playing for them. An injured Gundogan will not fix that problem. It's still Fernando and Dinho, with Delph. Not that scary. Their fullbacks are getting older, and you can't seriously consider Mangala and Otamendi to be very good? :-P Otamendi is decent, but nothing more. Mangala is a disaster waiting to happen and Kompany could be good for them but he's really struggling to stay fit and I can't see that getting much better with age.

Our squad is good, and in Conte I believe we have a top top coach. But our defense is abysmal. Terry is the least mobile player I've seen in quite some time. Ivanovic could be decent at CB I think, but every coach seems intent on playing him as a fullback and he doesn't have the agility or quickness for it. Average wingers turn him inside out like it's nothing. Cahill is decent, but definitely not enough to cover for the rest. He also backs off attackers more than he should. Azpi is a good defender, I'll give our defense that. And Zouma could be become one of the world's best, before the injury he already was very very good. Practically unmatched athleticism and his intelligence on the pitch had increased a whole lot. But there's no telling how he'll recover from his injury and he'll be out for quite a while still. That leaves Aina and Michael flippin Hector as cover. That's got to make for one of the worst defenses in the PL (though Aina is good cover, he's very inexperienced and we can't rely on him, so a starting fullback is needed because of Baba's loan) .
We're not winning anything with that back line.

Your attack is the strongest in the league I think. Ibra is class, though getting a bit old. He should have enough for 1 season at least. Martial is a very good player (though he's looked a bit unhappy since I've seen him at the Euros) . Mkhi is a very good player, and bought to win now (we apparently stepped back from a deal for him, don't know why) . Pogba could turn your midfield into a very good one if Mourinho finds the best way to use him. And I suppose he will since he's been keen on Pogba for a while now. You could certainly use another CB, but your defense is miles ahead of ours right now. It's not absolute class, but it's enough to get you to the title while your attacking players carry the team.


5.) 08 Aug 2016 13:26:39
Hmmm that's a tough one, I genuinely think it's a bit of a flip of coin at the moment. Man U probably have the strongest squad on paper at the moment and Mourinho is a serial winner. I think it'll take Man City some time to buy into Pep's philosophy, but they'll be right there at the business end as again Pep is also a serious winner. I just don't think Arsenal have the metal to do it and as a good of a manager as Wenger is he doesn't have that winning mentality that Pep, Mourinho and to a lesser extent Conte and Klopp have. I do think they'll get top 4 though and could be a wildcard if Wenger bites the bullet and makes some signings. I feel Spurs and Liverpool will be just outside the 4, Spurs with the strain on their squad won't handle the rigours of European football and I think Liverpools squad is a little thin especially if they are hit with their usual injuries. Then I think it will be Leicester and West Ham for the Europa league places. In regards to Chelsea I still feel we are a good CB and possibly a striker away from being title contenders, but if we can get these in I will chuck a cheeky 50 on them as we don't have European football and a decent squad with a top manager.
My top 8 looks like this;
1. Man United
2. Man City
3. Chelsea
4. Arsenal
5. Liverpool
6. Spurs
7. Leicester
8. West Ham.
Genuinely can't wait for the season to start!


6.) 08 Aug 2016 13:41:52
City are still suspect defensively at CB, with neither Mangala or Otamendi showing their worth anywhere near the amount paid for them and Kompany quite injury prone. Their fullbacks must be close to their 40's now. Fernandno, Fernandinho, Navas, Bony, Delph are all mediocre imo. Aguero will likely do well but will also be injured quite a bit as usual. Yaya Toure is on the decline and wasn't in Pep's plans at Barca, so not sure where he'll fit in now. Silva is still top class but also getting on now. So overall I would say that they don't have the best squad.

United I feel, with their new signings are starting to look like they have a title winning first 11. You guys have some pretty good back-ups for your squad. Personally now that you have Pogba you should be switching to a 4-3-3 and Rooney should be relegated to the bench. You were defensively solid last season and with JM that's not going to get worse. So overall perhaps a new RB and a couple of sales and you'll be favourites. (Obviously depends on formations and how JM sets you up but certainly on paper) .

Arsenal, well they're Arsenal. Unless they manage to get a CB in ASAP, I see them out of it by October with the usual race for top4 come Xmas. They have a decent squad when all their players are fit, but on any given day during the year they generally have at least 2 first team players on long term injuries. They need another top striker and RW for me on top of a CB.

Liverpool have a pretty decent first 11, LB and GK still massive weaknesses and overall still defensively suspect. Pretty good offensively though. Not sure how Klopp will keep all their CM's/ AM's/ ST's happy though due to not being in Europe and they lack a proper defensive CM/ DM.

Spuds, they've brought in a decent back-up ST to Kane and good DM cover for Dier. Overall a pretty good first 11 and squad, good coach in Pochettino. Their success/ failure this season will depend on how well their young squad cope with their collapse at the end of last season and the rigours of CL football. Perhaps need one or two more signings to inflate the squad for the extra football.

And finally Chelsea. We definitely need a new CB and a full back, preferably a LB. Then it largely depends on what system Conte will use, and whether Costa stays as to whether or not we need another ST. Personally I think we have a pretty good squad but we need at least one if not two, new first team players. Also think we need to shed a few players. Overall depending on how well the players adapt to Conte's formation/ plan I can see us coming 4th, but a new CB would be required for anything better. Potentially though no European football could see us do well.

Predictions: Utd 1st, City 2nd and then Spuds, Arse and us fighting it out for 3rd and 4th. Liverpool 6th.


7.) 08 Aug 2016 16:07:03
I think all of this is really premature as the window has yet to close (as well as January) . I have a hard time seeing city sign enough players to overtake United as they need new fullbacks and the majority of a midfield (not to mention they will get a tough champions league group with their 4th place finish) . As long as Chelsea sign a top class centre half (and left back if I'm greedy) I have a hard time not seeing us in 3rd without champions league football. Liverpool, Spurs, and arsenal will fight for fourth. I really think this is the year arsenal don't make the top 4 as they've yet to really strengthen. Spurs will have a tough time incorporating champions league football (although they managed Europa league well) . Liverpool will have an edge with no European football but it will really come down to how well klopp gels a ton of new signings into the club.


8.) 08 Aug 2016 18:53:48
Hope Jose doesn't fall out with too many of your players. Because then you would implode.


 

 

15 Nov 2013 07:34:34
Morning boys, United fan in peace. We have had a less than impressive start but I was wondering how you are all feeling about your start. In August, I thought the top 3 would be United, City, and Chelsea, with you lot looking the strongest. Despite Arsenal's strong start and all the Scousers wetting themselves' I still think the top 3 will be the same as last year. Not sure what is wrong with City, our issue is clearly midfield which hopefully we will do something about in Jan. How about you? JM doesn't look himself at the moment. Your midfield is quality but you still need that world class CF. What are your views?

AJH

1.) Our centre midfield is the biggest problem. I actually like eto'o he's getting sharper the more he plays. We need a link between defence and attack a deep lying playmaker who is also good defensively. My obvious choice would be Gundogan but I doubt it'll happen. I do think we need two new class players in that area. My ideal solution would be to Mikel leave keep Essien seen as he can fill the void at full back with Gundogan coming in and hopefully one of either Matuidi or Imbula who are defensively minded joining him but there's probably zero chance of that happening.


2.) I agree with what jm21 said about cm being a bigger need. Rami is fabulous in the middle but his biggest weakness is his distribution. Also the person next to him whether mikel or lampard covers very little ground so he has to run himself into the ground to make up for it. If we could get a midfielder that can distribute from deep and has the mobility needed to function in a two man midfield that would help us a ton. I agree that with etoo and Torres both playing decently well right now I wouldn't buy another striker and basically risk writing off lukaku.


3.) As good as Ramires has been unless we out a too class CM like de Rossi etc we will not
See best of him. Like u say, rami has to cover his ground and who ever else plays along
Side him. Except Luiz, who can do the ball playing and hard tacking and let Ramires OSE down and break

Behave yourself Ryan. WIllian was mentioned by a poster asking if anyone thought he would be a good buy, Neymar has never been an option. Matic is, but £50M for someone who is not first choice is just silly. I think Jose will look elsewhere, there's plenty about at a lot less money than that.

That’s a really good post, you lot are effectively blaming the Manager whilst our lot seem to be balaming our players.

I think your players have too much influence and Roman listens to them too much. They downed tools for Jose before he was sacked and there is clearly unrest against Conte now. He doesn’t always he, p himself but I think his treatment has been pretty shabby.

It was pretty childish but don’t worry, apparently Jose wants him so that’ll be another inconsistent player to add to our squad. Good luck with Martial if you get him; he’s a talented lad but miserable as sin and from where I sit, I think his attitude is questionable.

What went wrong? One word, Jose: hseems to have no patience and no desire to invest in players, particularly those that need an arm round them. We are seeing his wonderful man management skills at United now and it is baffling. You also had Lukaku who he let go and has now paid £75M for. I know he won you some titles and his record is right up there but seeing Jose close up isn't filling me with confidence.

I like Luiz although his girlie crying at the World Cup was a little tragic. If you want to get rid we’d be happy to take him.

A Chels a fan calling United disgusting, the irony. It wasn’t a head injury, the referee could have stopped play at any point but he didn’t. Amazing how he was back running around like a new born lamb within 2 minutes eh?
