I was shocked to hear the news that he was taken to hospital seriously ill, He was my favourite CH with silky skills I hope he recovers quickly and support his family at this tough moment.

It’s an epic skill which you only really appreciate when you play the game. I get tackled 3 seconds before I get the ball, he had his tackles and passes timed on a calendar.

This is awful to hear :frowning: As others have said, he is an all-time favourite of mine and the sort of player and person that makes you proud of your club. Also an inspiringly eloquent and charming man. I hope he pulls through and understands how loved and supported he will always be.

From BBC…

Bournemouth’s England striker Dominic Solanke, 26, is available for £65m this summer and Arsenal are one of the clubs interested. (Express)

Always felt it strange when he retired relatively early from his punditry work - wonder if this has been a long term thing manifesting
Anyway, get well soon Alan

Do we have a sell on clause? Arsenal are mugs if they get rid of Jesus and pay 65m for him.

Ben Winterbottom has been formally promoted from Brentford’s B team to their first team squad for next season. Brentford do however already have 5 first team goalkeepers so I don’t expect this move means much for first team prospects in the short term.

Actually, I’m not sure he isn’t better than Jesus…

Was very happy to see him have a great season, but still don’t really see him as top 4 level either.

We do apparently and we will get 20% from his sale that’s going to hurt Arse
