Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (h) sponsored by Steve Stone

Have Forest also been charged ? To be honest it’s pretty hard to defend, there is never a justification for multiple players to run and get involved in protracted pushing and shoving. And obviously officials get scrutinised far more stringently than players do. If the FA tried to retrospectively pu...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Eddie Nketiah on loan. He's supposed to be pretty good right? I know Arsenal have that whole Welbeck situation so might not want to loan out strikers but I just can't think of any others available for loan... possible, but very young to be thrown into a relegation battle. Looked very shaky against ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

Derby really aren't great, they have 1 win in 7, one good run in October/November time aside, they've been completely average all season and their first half performance at the Mad Stad is the worst I've seen in a long time, even worse than Hull and Forest last week. We always seem to do OK up ther...

Re: Is Kelly off?

Would be interesting to see if we could tempt Chelsea with a bid for Baker at the end of the season as a replacement, if we got a decent wedge for Kelly. Would see that as an upgrade. Yep agreed. Think once Baker gets a regular run of games under his belt we will see he can do a bit better than us ...

Except that's not true :roll: He turned it down cos he didn't believe he was ready and/or fit enough - despite what the media reported It is true.

I think he firmly believes he is brilliant too. Turning down international football with the Republic of Ireland because he thought he could break into the England set up? Do me a favour.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

This is potentially a very big game for Reading! The performance against reading was very good and only really lacked the finishing. That was followed up by a win and then a game away to a very good team at a time when they are struggling for results. A win, or even a point in this game could reall...

Re: The generic transfer thread

European football thread favourites Frenkie De Jong and Matthijs De Ligt are the 2 to keep eyes on this window. Could go for huge money, superstars in the making there (especially the latter) I am annoyed on behalf of Manchester United supporters that they aren't after Matthijs De Ligt. Crazy of th...

Re: Man CitHEHEHE

I think the magic is completely lost when you buy success the way they have. As silly as it sounds constant success is boring and without hving the downs you'll never fully be able to enjoy the ups in football. Thats why the 05/06 season was and is celebrated the way it is by us, it came largely out...

Wagner leaving Huddersfield. obvious to say now but he should have walked away at the end of last season as the hero who took them up and kept them up. They had a laughable summer transfer window, not sure what their chairman thought would happen. Wagner will get a decent job in Germany or a top le...
