Re: The Football League Thread 18/19

Good thing Leeds were awarded the title at the start of September, isn't it?

Re: Ex Players

Dean Morgan, now 35, is at Margate. he wasn't A bad player He was a fcuking terrible player. Greedy and a shit attitude. 20 clubs in 17 years and never commanded a transfer fee. This made me laugh. On 3 January 2008, Leeds United manager Dennis Wise confirmed that Morgan was one of his transfer tar...

Re: On this day

Funny, I look at the team from that day and see a lot of similarities in terms of the problems we have now. Individually just about every player there was decent (for that level at least) aside from maybe Glasgow (even Maybury went on to have a good career elsewhere), yet together they were mediocr...

Lovely picture of Ron Atkinson with a face like a dog's arse.

He's what is known in some schools as a fcuking racist, thick twat.

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Lee Sharpe was signed from Torquay in 88 and pretty much replaced Milne and Olsen in the first team squad almost straight away.

Ferguson broke up the Robson Whiteside McGrath drinking club in 89.

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Noticed that after Saturday Jose has the best winning percentage of any Man Utd manager ever (can't remember the exact figures but he's something like 0.2% ahead of Fergie) Little wonder the fans at OT have still got his back Good on Jose, bossing the League Cup and Europa League 2 seasons ago then...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Which is partly my point, especially if you're setting up to play a defensive formation with 1 centre back and 4 right backs at your disposal. The owners have fcuked up but Bruce is hardly blameless. I don't believe the imbalance in the squad is down to the owners dictating who they recruit or the n...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

At the same time, Bruce brought in 5 loanees, 4 of which were attackers, whilst letting one of only 2 centre backs go out on loan. How do you know he let anyone go out on loan? I doubt very much if he had any say in the outgoings due to their financial issues. If that's true then why bring in 3 att...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Are you seriously denying that they have the most dangerous attack in the Championship? At the moment, yes I would and it is because of the way they have been playing. Hogan - 7 goals in 50 games for Villa. Kodjia - 4 goals in his last 30 appearances. They are heavily reliant on loanees and meanwhi...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

So it's the forwards' fault for not scoring enough goals to compensate for having no defence? It is of such a high quality that it should negate a lot of their defensive woes yes, especially at Championship level . Perhaps Bruce was being too cautious leaving his defence exposed unnecessarily. Were...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Villa had a penalty saved in the 97th minute. If the penalty taker had placed it just 6 inches further to the side so it wasn't saved Villa would have got the win and been level on points with 6th place. I wonder if Villa fans would have been so angry and Bruce would have been sacked if that small ...

Re: [POLL] Is Aluko really that poor?

Thought he was an over-rated show pony with no end product when we were initially linked with him and was gobsmacked that we paid more than £1.5m for him.

Now I think he's an over-rated carthorse and would gladly sell him for a pack if pork scratchings.

Re: Next Reading Manager

What slightly concerns me is that this time last season, Stam did the same in the first half of last season. We'd string a couple of decent performances together with an unchanged side and then he'd tinker and we'd go back to being shit again.

Re: The Football League Thread 18/19

I don't think they're choking as such, more that their style of play revolves around 2 players and both have been unavailable for the past month. They have no depth and the way Bielsa teams play, they will blow up when key players are not playing. It's no different to Mourinho always blowing up in t...
