Re: Season 2018/2019

I’d say we’ll be better than Blackburn, Rotherham, Wigan, Bolton, Millwall, Sheff Utd, Preston, Ipswich, Brentford, QPR and a couple of suprises like West Brom and end up about 13th at a guess Meyler and Yiadom and huge step ups from what I have seen so far and I think Swift and Aluko will have fat ...

Re: Season 2018/2019

Agreed, creating chances in the concern for me I think PC is relying on Swift, Barrow and Aluko - 2 of whom had very poor seasons last time out. If they click then we may be ok We’ll be a lot harder working this year, if that I’m sure. I can understand from outside why we look like we might be candi...

Sky reckon the fee is 700k which seems more likely

Re: Rubin or out

Put some thoughts on the other thread but generally agree Thought Barrow struggled a little but got better. Smith and Meite were pretty starved of service but i thought did ok. McNulty looked a bit off the pace Thought Swift actually did well. Pressed well and got in good positions - looked a lot mo...

Re: Season 2018/2019

Was I the only one watching this :wink: Looked better second half when Moore and Meyler came on. Ended 0-0, couple of good saves by both keepers in the last ten. Our best chance was a Swift header which was very well saved Anyway some more quick conclusions Yiadom is much better than Gunter. Much mo...

Re: Season 2018/2019

couple of quick thoughts from the first 35 Meite is a handful, fast and strong. think there is a good chance he will start the season as our #9. McNulty a bit off the pace, but a decent touch on him Aluko has actually stayed very wide all game. Rinomhota is a much better player than Evans. Clement l...

Re: CONFIMRED: Darren Sidoel

not too sure either tbf. I very much doubt that manager's have anything to do with contracts nowadays. Gourlay seems to have a wider scope in terms of the overall running of the club, never been fully clear what BT's role is, but certainly bringing in players is a big part of that. I just doubt he h...

Re: CONFIMRED: Darren Sidoel

he isnt a scout though

Assuming the job of negotiating contracts etc is a pretty big one in itself. Dealing with the agents etc as well. I doubt he has much more of a role identifying players for the team than PC does.

Re: Season 2018/2019

less of a first 11 from the look of it against RK: Starting XI | Mannone, Gunter, Clement, Rinomhota, Ilori, McShane, Aluko, Blackett, Meite, McNulty, Barrow Subs | Ward, Yiadom, Moore, Richards, Kelly, Meyler, Swift, Loader, Edwards, Smith No Anssi or Bacuna in either game. Evans is obviously a gon...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

have to say, I'm sick of seeing us turn out in those orange away shirts. Just reminds me of the misery of last season Do people actually buy the new shirts 3-4 weeks before the season starts? Does it actually mean we sell less if we release it 1 week before the start of the season, rather than 1 mon...

Re: RUMOUR - George Evans to Sunderland

Bacuna possibly in the DM role, though he didn’t exactly excel in it last year. Hoping Meyler stays fit tbh. Evans certainly wasn’t the answer there

Swift is a major player for us if fit. Looks encouraging so far, but if his hammies continue to ping it may be best to cut our losses

Re: Season 2018/2019

No, my suspicion is that at least one of Mount or Wilson will do a ‘Lewis Baker’ and not really turn up. And not really sure how much Jozefzoon has achieved for Brentford - typical inconsistent winger

But should make it an interesting game

Re: Season 2018/2019

First game is going to be interesting. Derby have made some useful signings on paper - Jozefzoon following Mount and Wilson.

They're either going to rip teams apart or be very lightweight and bullied I think. Still our FBs likely to have their hands full
