Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

The whining on this thread from those not in favour is astonishing. There is so much passion and relentless effort being put into the complaining, you must be so angry about this. Which seems odd given that it's just a few people sitting somewhere else in a football ground to where you sit, which w...

Re: Martin Ødegaard

Did well at Heerenveen last year. My concern is he would bring some baggage and Madrid are apparently demanding he would have to play if available. Fine if he performs but if he isn't and blocks the path for others, could be terrible for morale. Let’s see, if he plays wide right who would he be “bl...

Re: CONFIMRED - George Evans to Derby

Think we'll look back on this one with regret in a couple of years. Evans is a very talented player who should have been playing every week for us. Meyler might be a better option in the short term, particularly defensively, but Evans has a higher ceiling and was also a good option in defence. Don'...

Evans explained what Lampard is expecting of him in a Rams shirt: "He wants me to bring energy" he said.

That's a lot of money to pay to get him to carry the lucazade and energy bars.


For me that has Andy Hughes written all over it ...

Re: Summer Transfers

What I wonder is why we never seem to be able to sign decent players from abroad - you'd think there'd be some good Scandinavian players who would do well in the Champ that would do well for us and would be much cheaper than UK-based ... but maybe we're just not scouting that area.

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

And what's so bad in the club making £10million on a player when the club is clearly strapped for cash ... surely that's a good thing, unless you're one of those who thinks we should spend, spend, spend without balancing the books?

Re: Season 2018/2019

bit of a 42m spanking for QPR for breaking FFP rules a few years back. Thats going to hurt.... The fine and costs is only £20m. payable over 10 years, won't hurt that much. The rest is to be written off by the shareholders. I thought the punishment was expulsion from the EFL, pity that was not enfo...

If we win the majority of our games I think we'll finish near the top. However, if we lose most then we'll be lower down I think Really think football will end up being the winner this season.

Re: Season 2018/2019

Now I know that pre-season friendlies are not 'important' and also that getting draws against Rubin and Besiktas are 'good' results but isn't it a bit worrying that we've not won a single game? I mean even though these games are not important as such it could mean that we simply have lost the winnin...

He didn't play in friendly yesterday... so that would suggest he's leaving or might be leaving and club doesn't want to risk injury.

18 goals and 9 assists in 5878 minutes for anyone wondering which is a goal or assist every 218 minutes making him slightly better than Pogrebnyak at g/a every 225 minutes for us and much better than Blackman with g/a every 234 minutes.
