Re: Best loan signing

I always rated Luke Chadwick, whilst he was with us, but he never really seemed to push on and make it big. Omar Daley also seemed to have a lot of potential, but again, he never really made it. Other than that, i would agree that Upson was the best quality player to have joined us on loan. Either ...

Re: Theoretical: Sack Stam and replace with ...?

I don't want or expect this to happen. But if it did, Patrick Vieira would be my #1. Linked with Saint Etienne, wants to coach in Europe but Man City are reluctant to let him leave NYCFC and he seems to be happy enough there. De Boer would be ok in my mind, awful at palace, but we aren't exactly an ...

Re: Kevin Doyle

Good to see him getting out whilst he still has his health.

We were privileged to have him at the club when we did and he'll never be forgotten as part of the 106 team.

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...

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 ...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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.
