Re: Team for Swansea.

Would like to see Rinomhota get the game - prefer him in the middle but wouldn't be surprised to see him RWB again. Smith should get some of the match (but I'd like Bodvarsson to get at least 45 for confidence). Be good to get GMac, Obita, Evans, Ilori and Beerens some game time given they haven't b...

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

if they don't do well that they'll be moving on next summer. Or they do well and their expectations are a squad role greater than we can offer.... and they leave. Fosu has started well (like his loans..) but as a CAM, not seen much on the others. Jules has already fallen down the pecking order and ...

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

Not sure of your point Maff 1) Academy paid for itself for another year. 2) We've let a load of academy players go who were always one more year away from the first team, other young players have moved up from the academy over the summer and this lot don't seem to be much further away from the firs...

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

Tbf, nearly all of them have found league clubs. Wouldn't class that as a failure really Failure is of course relative. They have all,failed to make the grade with us. They've all failed to make the grade in the Championship (even Cooper isn't starting many games at one of the weakest clubs in the ...

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

Legg, Watson, Richards, Rinomhota and Andresson should all make the bench at points over the season, might get a few minutes. Smith and Loader a bit further off, but still there or there abouts on the periphery. I'm not really buying the Smith hype. Doesn't seem hugely different to Cardwell who disa...

Re: The idiots of Twitter thread

I like @OneHinton ... what's wrong with his tweet btw? I'm not sure where I stand on the stadium naming. Yeah, he's sound - although his insistance on FOUR-FOUR-FUCKING-TWO and McDermott football gets a little tiresome at times. Really hates the way we're playing this year (and doesn't recognise an...

Seen JDB twice QPR away and Brizzle at home. One is not impressed. Made Pog look like Neymar "It's ridiculous sacking de Boer after he's only managed four games! He should be given time." "we should stop playing our striker who has only played 3 games and scored more than Palace!&quo...

Re: Sam Smith or Jon Dadi Bodvarson

Thought in the cup Smith was very anonymous - it's a lot to throw on him at this satge.

Bodvarsson has had two games where he's been fine, scored once and one poor game. Wouldn't write him off yet.

No he didn't leave in June, he was managing the U21s at Colchester on Tuesday ....


Someone who was there said he wasn't and Gilkes actually managed that game?

Also, u21s? Didn't think that was a thing anymore?

And that's before you get onto those that would have been eligible for Nigeria (Robson-Kanu, Ikpeazu to name but two...).
