Re: Danny Williams

No thanks. A good player that doesn't combine with others to be better than the sum of their parts. Too prone to go head down and run into a cul de sac. Doesn't fit the passing philosophy of Gomes. Plus he's now 30 and entering the end stages of his career. He'll want to maximise income and is comi...

Re: Danny Williams

Would have him back in a heartbeat but Ian’s point about wages is a fair one because we are going to be limited in spending power this summer.

Re: Rival Watch

This points deduction does not help us one bit . Rather play Birmingham at home last game of season where they are on their holidays versus being in a match where both teams livelihoods depend on it. And we all know how that will end. Apart from the fact they now won't be on the beach when they pla...

Re: Rival Watch

No they're not. Maggenis and Ameobi are shit, Hobbs is an injury waiting to happen and Vela is no better than Kelly. I'll give you Beevers though, he's better than McShane. Just being realistic we will not be spending big in the summer. Will we not? No way the Chinese want another season like this....

Re: PoTS

In Gomes’ system, I’m sorry but he’s been nothing short of abject. Don’t let his goal against Wigan mask just poor he was, plus as said previously it was clearly a foul anyway so shouldn’t have counted. In fairness, his assist against Ipswich was top play There’s a player in there somewhere however...

Re: PoTS

People are voting for him because not many others deserve it. Christ, if Yakou Oxf*rd Meite gets in the top three, it's time to give up Meite is our top scorer and also has a number of assists. Some of his goals have been belters. I don’t see why he shouldn’t be third in the running order. Because ...

Re: PoTS

MUST.NOT.BITE. No I agree, he has played less than half a season. Yeah he has looked pretty decent and one of our better players out on the pitch. But people aren't suggesting Bod as POTS probably for the same exact reasons even though he has contributed just as much, but with fewer games. People a...

Re: PoTS

That time of year again and I've seen it mentioned on the injury thread so thought I'd separate it onto it's own thread so we all know where it is 8) Can't really see beyond the three names below myself ⋅ Yiadom ⋅ Rino ⋅ Meite Can/could we include the loanees though? F...

Re: Injury & Suspension Watch : 2018/2019

Yids would be my PoTS as things stand. He has had some real shockers during the season but also a number of stand out performances.
Only Rinomhota comes close for me. With Meite third.

Re: Nine Very Difficult Games - Predictions?

Well yeah - we signed O Shea (6ft 3), Meyler (6ft 2), Ezatolahi (6ft 2), Walker (6ft 7), gave Meite (6ft 1?) a long contract and signed an aggressive FB in Yiadom. This to add to first teamers Jaakkola, Moore, Ilori, Blackett, Bodvarsson who all above 6ft. From standing near Rino I’m guessing he is...

Re: Nine Very Difficult Games - Predictions?

There could be shocks. But how often do we come up with one? When was the last time we beat a good team? The reason we don't is because this squad has so many holes and flaws for the Champ that it's a crime. We're a team of midgets in this league, and so we then go out and sign Baldock and McNulty ...

Re: Nine Very Difficult Games - Predictions?

That looks optimistic to me. Not too hopeful we'll beat WBA, they'll be all out for Top 6 and will have new manager in by then (prolly Jokanovic?). We'll beat Brizzle, at Brizzle, with them all out for Top 6? May need to win at Stoke... They’ll be shocks along the way though, we could somehow go to...

Re: Rival Watch

Hound Dire penalty from Cooper that. To go with his foul for the Millwall goal and giving away a blatant pen that wasn’t seen

He fits right in there


FA Cup Quarter Finals are not Cooper’s thing.

Re: BFTG Stoke

I agree with you but it does seem so far that only sandman actually went to the game. Vic you must be pleased that Gunter came on and had a stormer. I think he may save us from relegation. 8) About time he did something good (I gather he wasn't much good as usual) as he didn't do much to save us fr...

Yes, thanks for all the BFG reports, which are by far the best way I get a handle on performances given that I can't make matches.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Stoke City (a) sponsored by Dave Kitson

I don't get why everyone is having fun criticising Kelly, he's a product of the youth academy, I want him to succeed, he's had a poor season but I hope he learns from this and can either force his way back into Gomes's plans or use the summer to push on for next season. Personally I don’t think he ...
