Re: Republic of Ireland

Delighted Wales are out....Gaby Logan waxed lyrical about Wales's success in the euro's being down to the amazing team spirit clearly, that is bollox....Team Spirit only exists when things are going well so you tolerate the things that cnut you off. Or when you have Gareth Bale in the team. oxf*rd ...

Re: Theoretical: Sack Stam and replace with ...?

Now that Wales are out of the World Cup I hope the club seriously consider Chris Coleman as the new manager, should they decided to get rid of Stam, as I think he would do a very good job. He failed as a club manager. Completely different to managing a country. His signings were awful. Lazy suggest...

Why is everyone being pathetic and shitting themselves at the prospect of this very winnable fixture?

Re: Gunter

Watched the Wales v Ireland game last night - the young man had a shocker nah - I tell you who did have a shocker Aaron Ramsey. For someone of his ability and experience with the players they were missing Wales needed him to step up and take responsibility - he utterly bottled it. Ye, I'll give you...

Re: Best loan signing

Was Steve Mautone a loan signing? Utterly immense from my early Elm Park memories - remember him saving a pen and just generally being a hero in a pretty poor period for us.

Very very harsh. Granted he's probably not quite up to standard but he does have England U21 caps and never really had a chance with us

Re: Best loan signing

I will always maintain that this guy was responsible for the 106 season with that assist in the Sheffield United home game, to take us within 3 points of them at the top. Reading legend, as far as I'm concerned. Now plays for Amiens SC in France. He's 31 now so was only 19 or so when he floated tha...

Think lowest total for a season was Sunderland circa '09(?? Jon Stead era)

Re: Theoretical: Sack Stam and replace with ...?

I don't want or expect this to happen. But if it did, Patrick Vieira would be my #1. Linked with Saint Etienne, wants to coach in Europe but Man City are reluctant to let him leave NYCFC and he seems to be happy enough there. De Boer would be ok in my mind, awful at palace, but we aren't exactly an...
