Saw this article in relation to Pogba, and wondered whether we are subconsciously guilty of it at times too, or whether its largely nonsense and people just react to what they see? I suppose that is the question.
For instance, race aside, we often describe Traore as "pace and power" and occasionally I've seen people saying "If only he had a brain". Is this because he is of Black And Ethnic Minority" (BAME) player, OR simply because that is how we see the individual footballer (irrespective of race)?
We don't question Costa's or Cav's trickery and intelligent style. But then I have seen a few say our defensive giant Willy Boly has lapses in concentration whilst others call him a "Rolls-Royce" of a defender. Personally in my opinion is he possesses both, but I'm not sure there is any underlying and subconscious racial stereotyping there.
I do understand the danger of racial stereotyping, but at 6 foot 3 inches the likes of Pogba and Sissoko at Spurs, are 'power and pace' to a large degree. Ian Wright, Raheem Sterling are all about flair and trickery.
Its a difficult one. Thoughts?
Name the top four in order
Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham. Man City will be far too strong for everyone again, though I expect the points difference to 2nd to be closer to 10 than 20 this year. Liverpool have strengthened well, and I expect them to put on a decent fight before dropping away late on. Man Utd to struggle under a totally unmotivated Mourinho, won't be a match for a Kane led Spurs. And Chelsea are due a good season (one good, one bad, one good, one bad), especially if they keep Hazard.
Who’s going down?
Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town, Burnley. Nothing against Warnock, but he and his limited Cardiff team will be poor. Huddersfield lucky to survive last year and can't see them repeating that luck. My controversial shout is Burnley... hugely over achieved last year and just have a sneaky suspicion they'll be a Championship side again this time next year.
Favourite for the sack?
Neil Warnock. 0 points from the first 9 games will leave the chairman no choice... Who must win a domestic cup competition and who will?
Poch could do with a trophy at Spurs... fancy Wolves to pick up one of the cups. This season’s surprise package Wolverhampton Wanderers. Although it won't surprise me. Expect to see them up around 7th, possibly challenging for top 6. A cup win also a possibility.
The Premier League would be better this season if . . .
The refs decide to do their jobs properly. Your biggest wish for the season
My team, my love, My Wolves... to show the whole footballing world what we are made of.
Gareth Southgate should look out for . . . Will be interesting to see how Sessegnon gets on this year, and hopefully Foden will get some game time for City... he looks a real prospect. Don't discount a shock call up for Coady should he kick on from his excellent season last year.
My top 4 prediction seems pretty...
Looks like a good window after Everton game before Newcastle game on the Monday night if they do go for it.
I’m supportive (and happy to carry the bags/report back to other Mixers!), if it keeps team bonding and not affected by travel (flu on return).
Sport TV3 can be found on the legally downloaded app MobDro. It will be in Portuguese and horribly grainy. I hope this helps.
PS Don’t know about Shrewsbury yet.
Especially the ones who have been to all away and missed out.
If someone involved in club read this would be interested if they are looking at a possible beam back option.
Would be a big turn out I think, possible money spinner for club to, even if opened up ground to put on screens would be good or even concourse screens would be good. Due to the short notice a screen on pitch would be difficult.
So many missing out on the game and would be great for club to push boat out and sort it.
