Re: Relegation

Barcelona and Man City could both be said to be using 'Dutch' tactics and they aren't doing so bad this year We don't really have the players for 10 men behind the ball and go long ball - not at least until Yann is fully 100%. And we'd still concede no matter how many we put back the way we are pla...

Re: Board of Directors - Look away now ...

Yes indeed strap, the less said about Stam the better. Well except getting us to third last year on what I imagine was a profit on players We all think he has done shit this year. Really all of us. But let’s give the full picture. Plenty more sticks to beat him with than spending too much money tbh...

Er, that's because the Transfer window is shut. :lol:


The joke being that we’ve been conditioned to believe the only way to turn around a teams performances is buying players!

Re: Recent Ex-Players Performing

This thread should be stickied to highlight the shambles modern football has become in England. Great OP by the way, nothing against you at all! Players and managers are either good enough or not good enough. When a team is doing badly ‘sack the manager!’, when a player does badly ‘drop/sell him!’. ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (a) sponsored by one swallow does not a summer make

36% possession and 0 shots to their 8?

I’m a big ‘Stam IN’ man, but this half time will be a big test. Sounds like no plan is working at all...

Re: In or Out?

Stuck me, watching Everton yesterday, how similar they are to us at the moment. Both have dutch managers, both have a raft of new players, both a gap up top where their striker used to be (Lukaku and Kermorgant) and both are lacking confidence. It's amazing how players think before they pass or shoo...

Re: Back from booing at my tv screen

Right, have spent the last 24 hrs trying to compose myself after watching that shocking excuse for a football match, my considered views on yesterday are as follows. Starting with Beerens at centre forward, McCleary left wing and Aluko right wing just set me off before the warm up had even ended. S...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Rather than spaff shed loads on Aluko should have gone in for that guy Bodin at Bristol Rovers IMHO .. So would I, but Brian Tevreden has never heard of him, come to that I doubt he knows who Bristol rovers are. And therein lies the root of our problems. Cash clearly wasn’t a huge problem. We got A...

Unless we get dragged into a relegation battle, he's earned the entire season imo, sick of this short-term approach to managers. Also this ^ However... 90% of the time, the players know whether the manager is any good. After Brendan Rogers half this board was thrilled (big watch bumper book of tact...

You don't seriously think we'd be promotion contenders with Novakovich as our third striker do you?


Poor Joseph.....

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

We have Kermorgant until the end of the season, Bodvarsson as back up. The third striker really should be Samuel but is instead Smith. Someone silly good on loan would be fine, but I honestly don't get the Oliveira love in

Re: Rumour - Modou Barrow

Evidence Stam is going back to 4-3-3 and wants inside forwards. Happy with this transfer, although leaves some questions for me over the balance of the squad. Amazed we still don't have a left back to play if Obita gets injured, and amazed that even Barca see the need for a Busquets yet we only have...
