Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Interesting Brum, Villa and Derby (big surprise there) apparently

Sure he'd jump at the chance of not having to join one of those basket cases

It seems to start off well then tail off into a mumbling dirge of mind boggling inanity.

I could be wrong of course as I don't know the words.

Re: Jaap Stam Had a Dream

"Jaap Stam had a dream to build a football team, he didn't have money, then he did. The end." Jaap Stam had a dream to build a football team, he had some money, but not as much as those clubs who can go out and spend 7,8,9, 10 million on one player so he had to be inventive in what he cou...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by the first long trek of the season

Preston seems to be one of those places that we show our true soft southern side to, and generally get a good sound beating from our dour northern friends At least this time it shouldn't be too cold, miserable and wet so we may at least have some sort of chance Not a bad club though Preston, have a ...

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

ha, didn't make the comment to 'shock' anyone

Does suggest he has made up with the boss though. Which theoretically makes it less likely he will join us

Re: Rumour: Sone Aluko

hmm, whatever - its a particularly dull argument. Basically both of their styles is to try to score goals and generally to play in the centre forward position the spirit of how the original post was intended was I'd rather not buy additional players for a couple of million if it took that money away...

Re: BFTG - Villa

Is it a serious suggestion that one of the suits told Stam to up the team's entertainment levels?

Sure Stam would have taken that very well if there was any remote possibility that had happened

Re: BFTG - Villa

Do think that was the most complete performance of the Stam era We've had good defensive performances such as the play off games vs Fulham, but that was prob the most fulfilling of his philosophy Good control and posession first half, followed by going for the jugular from the wings in the second as...

Re: BFTG - Villa

Impressed with their support tbf. Rinsed us early on. Our reactionary chants are spot on though. Liam Moore is the best CB I can remember for us. Wins literally everything at both ends. agree. He is absolutely immense. A ridiculous steal at the price we got him for. Has everything, and fully expect...

Re: Rumour: Sone Aluko

bit of noise about this one again. Seems the mini rant on Twitter and the Fulham no long contracts to over 28s is fuelling things again. Looks like BT, Stam and co have been quite clever in picking him out as a potential target. Not too sure that its priority for us. Him and Barrow in tandem could ...

Re: BFTG - Villa

It makes a huge difference to the atmosphere when there is a full away end. Unfortunately most clubs in the division are the other end of the country so not sure it will be repeated too often I can see both Sheffield clubs bringing 4k, 'boro if they continue doing well, Wolves, Leeds, Sunderland, B...

Re: BFTG - Villa

I enjoyed the Villa fans last night tbf. Not sure about that Kumbaya song, but it worked when their whole end sang it. Very open to the comeback which our fans did well. Don't fancy they will be too buoyant this year with the shambles they have on the pitch. They look even on paper well below the st...

Re: CONFIMRED - Leandro Bacuna

seeing the utter shambles Villa served up last night - not surprised he didn't do too well there

The crowd also seem to dislike Lansbury who was excellent at Forest and Hourihane who was very rated at Barnsley. Suspect there's something deeper to it than he just isn't that good
