Re: The one that worries me about January

Except James Wilson, who Jaap seems to talk about at every opportunity But - does he bring him up, or is he asked about him? What Stam clearly does not do, which some previous managers did, ispretend we have no interest in a player when we do. But I dont' think he goes into a presser thinking, must...

Re: BFTG - Ramming the Rams

Well let's hope Stam has learnt his lesson and that we see the back of that awful rubbish we were witnessing. Much more pace and players doing what their best at. Don't get the Beerens haters....he could have had 2 assists that were quite frankly two of the best passes you will see at this level. E...

Re: The "reward youth" debate

Of those three you mention, only Fosu is currently showing signs he could well have done a job for us at his new club. And to get out of him what Charlton are he'd have to displace Swift (who is only 6 months older). Could have kept him over Clement I guess, although Clement looks like he'll be som...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by first half away goal search

Last two games we've played the way I thought our summer signings indicated. Here's hoping that's Jaap's aim, purposeful possession to assist quick counters. Bacuna, more in midfield than defence, seems instrumental to this - which was what I was trying to get at when comparing him to Williams.

Re: The "reward youth" debate

Seems we've pushed out a load of youth that were always seemingly a year or two away for a group a similar distance, but much younger and arguably with more potential when they reach the same age.

Don't think he ever got a start did he in a league game. Such a shame because he was on fire in that game,


Has 7 goals in 15 games this season, albeit at a lower level.


Also, he's not playing as a winger. He's in Swift's position now.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by first half away goal search

We really should be 10 places better off, even catering for a slow start and injuries That's 6 points, so only two wins. There have been plenty of games we could / should have got something out of. Fine margins in play. Also, we have a game in hand still, so those 6 points, might be 3 points. If we...

Wasn't his full debut against Derby - came on as a sub.

Reckon Popa will be off in January.

Maybe not worst ever, but Bongani Khumalo always sits in my mind as being something special in that regard.
