I see us beating Burton tomorrow, Millwall on Saturday and Nottingham Forest on 20th February.

Even if we lose one and draw two of them we will be OK.


Yep, delusional :|

Re: Unfortunately ANOTHER In or Out poll

Sorry John but you are being utterly delusional. We are in a relegation battle. We are only 4 points off the bottom 3. We aren't in a relegation battle. Hull City are in a relegation battle. They are absolutely terrible, in awful form and have Nigel Adkins as their manager. Add to that Sunderland, ...

Re: Stam blames poor past management

If there's one piece of good news to come out of this nightmare it's that Stam won't be getting anymore money to waste on over priced, under performing wingers. I wouldn't give him another brassing farthing and have everything crossed in hope that, if the owners have pulled up the financial draw bri...

Re: Popa Don’t Preach - Loan/Sold

Let’s face it, there’s obviously been a bust up within the Club since the capitulation against Cardiff. Some players may have been loyal while others have realised that the management team don’t know what the feck they are doing. So Stam is picking from an ever reducing pool of those who he thinks ...

Re: Low away attendances

Seem to remember being told of an occasion when one well known supporter turned up in splendid isolation and was deservedly given a lift back on the team coach :D

Re: In or Out? New poll.

Possibly grasping at straws here but; Having given Stam £13m in the summer, if he's still as safe as Gourlay would have us believe and we are midway through a long term project, would such a medium term view involve completely turning off the financial taps in this window? It seems far more likely t...

Re: The Chris Gunter appreciation thread

Some of you need to recognise the difference between "abuse" and assessment of ability and performance. I don't know Chris Gunter the man and have no reason to believe he is anything other than a decent guy. What I also know is that he's a very average right back both defensively and offen...

Re: The Chris Gunter appreciation thread

Defensively, not fit to lace the boots of Murty, Shorey and several others. Backs off his winger, therefore allowing countless crosses into our box that should never arrive, making him a major contributor to our poor defensive record since the day he arrived. No longer having McCleary in front of hi...

All that matters is getting rid of Stam. If he stays, who is this team going to beat in order to get enough points to stay up? It's as simple as that for me :|

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h) sponsored by still no Saturday home win this season

I have decided today that if a totally avoidable relegation comes to pass, I will not renew the season ticket I've had for 18 years. We know so little about our new owners but we do know they backed Stam with £13m last summer and he is now driving us into the dirt. They have to act NOW!!! or we are ...

Nearly everyone agrees with most of the above except Stam WTF do you want to keep a manager who has spent the entire season refusing to accept the blindingly regarding team selection, style of play and tactics?

Re: CONFIMRED - Adrian Popa

Has he made too many forward passes or crossed the half way line once too often? Is this what counts for “attitude” these days? Could it just be the fact he didn’t cost £7m? Whatever it is, I wish him well at his next club and hope tonight helped put him in the shop window. He’s clearly wasted in th...

Re: Moore or striker?

Striker, no brainer, but we could have got one for the £7m we paid for Aluko and used the more effective Popa on the wing. Agreed we can't keep hold of Moore (and others, too, possibly) but what decent striker with more than 3 brain cells would want to come here over any Champ club still in with a ...

WTF. £12M???? Yes. What were you hoping to see? maybe I am out of touch with football transfer fee's, but I assumed a defender in a team struggling to avoid the drop down to the 3rd tier might go for a bit less than £12M Not long ago that would have been the case but from what we've seen so far thi...
