I wonder what he would have thought about our progress?
One thing is for sure he would be happy today.

Given his depth of knowledge about the youngsters at the club I would imagine he'd be rightly proud of the development of Holgate, Davies and Calvert-Lewin and the fact Koeman is very keen to give them such exposure.

I doubt Koeman will pick Holgate for the Derby game but shudder at the thought of Jagielka, Mori and Williams defending in that game, although Jagielka is best of the three at present, especially defending, it's what he does with the ball that worries me along with the other two.
Harold might have come up with a decent solution, Koeman is stuck with what he's got, and the clean sheets mean nothing at home, in fact I'm amazed we've kept so many.

I wouldn't dare to second guess his thoughts, but I hope he would be pleased with our progress. I miss his venerable sense.

I'd LOVE to be within earshot.

I think you are correct about Jagielka starting in the derby. It won't be a game for faint hearts.
Tony, I wish I had Harold's calmness also, especially after popping my cork on here over the Lukaku stuff.
I think Harold would like the way Koeman has gotten the team fit and playing the youngsters.
Harold was one of my favourite posters because he came across as such a knowledgeable but humble man.

The guy was a legend.

We could have done with him last week when the Lukaku threads where getting a bit silly.

Harold was a gem. I miss him on these pages.
I think Harold would be thrilled with the Club's progress.
I also think he would be thrilled to know we are getting a new stadium...,
A little birdie flew in my ear. Within 48 hours, Bramley-Moore Dock will be announced. Let's see if my birdie is true or full of poo.
RIP Harold. Let's hope my birdie is right and I'm sure you'll be dancing in heaven and be commissioned to paint the first artist's rendering of the new digs upstairs in Blue heaven.

His take on young players was especially valuable. Imagine how much he'd have enjoyed Lookman's goal three minutes into his debut with the club.
