Re: Summer Transfers

know this got mentioned elsewhere, but had a look at Martyn Waghorn's stats. Considering he isn't young, 8 million basically for one 16 goal championship season. The only other goals he has really scored were in the Scottish second tier. Waghorn is a total middle of the road Championship striker no...

Re: RUMOUR - Sam Walker

You could maybe see it as we're not actively looking because we're reasonably happy with Jaakkola as back up - hence the contract, but then hear Bolton are about to pull off a cheap transfer for someone we rate, and so jump in at the 11th hour to gazzump them a la Hunt, because we think he's too goo...

Re: Season 2018/2019

Bet you £1000 they’re not. I'll take that at reasonable odds if you're that confident. You stake £1000, I'll stake £50 You win if they finish below 14th, I win if they finish above 10th. Null if they finish 10-14th. I said £1000 they won’t be in the top 6 :lol: So what’s that 1/20 that they’ll fini...

Re: George Evans

But you said talks weren't taking place and a fee wasn't agreed. They were. Youre statung that as fact. I don't believe everything I read online and in the press m8. The press? No. But Sunderland’s owner said himself that we had accepted a bid. It's also hypocritical to complain about someone stati...

Re: Season 2018/2019

It's ok lads, Wigan and Rotherham are back for this season. Means there is effectively only 1 relegation spot on offer. I think Wigan will be a lot better side than the last time they came up. Paul Cook is a decent manager who plays expansive attacking football. Don't be shocked if they're one of t...

Fair, i do think we'd have been relegated playing like that most seasons. Thank goodness for such a diabolical bottom six / seven around us.

Re: Summer Transfers

How exactly? Either you're a hot PL academy prospect or you've got years of Championship / equiv experience. If you've got the experience you can't be that young. You misunderstand Ian. We can sign experienced players. No problem with that. We can also sign one or two PL prospects too though. I’d l...

Re: CONFIMRED - Adrian Popa

It wouldn't be the first sign of an attitude issue, but it's pretty weak.

We'll just have to wait and see how he does and if he gets a chance under Clement.

Rouge, you'd better not be just teasing us. This has to continue through the whole season.

Absolutely made up to have this back. :D :D

OK, well into the couple of weeks now. Who would you play v Derby. Based on current form Mannone Yiadom Moore McShane Gunter Popa Clement Swift Barrow McNulty Bodvarsson However the attacking area is still a massive cause for concern Strikers 1. Not seen Bodvarsson though so don't know how far off ...

Re: Season 2018/2019

Unfortunately I think that's so speculative and broad as to be worthless. I don't really think you can carry a goal expectancy assessment for a club over one season into another. Its also worth noting it seems goal expectancy has seriously undervalued us two seasons in a row now. Which suggests whil...

Re: Rumour: Jaakkola to Rotherham

The law was changed in 1992, that's 26 years ago. There's no real excuse for any professional footballer under 40 as it would have been part of their training to collect the ball and play a simple and safe out ball, be that a hoof down pitch or a diagonal short pass to a free team mate. I don't thi...

Re: RUMOUR - George Evans to Sunderland

Well they certainly didnt appear to want to spend much on their pursuit of Mcnulty..creeping up from the initial £500k to get it over the line eventually... ..just dont believe there is much finance available given all the free signings made and the drawn out McNulty transfer.. Why would we pay any...

Re: Rumour: Jaakkola to Rotherham

Sounds like Clement wants to get rid of Jaakkola? Beckenbauer was a playmaker back in '66? Beckenbauer started as a midfielder. Also I don't think picking one of the greatest players ever as an example of why a defender can be a playmaker is much of a starter seeing as most players who will ever pl...

Re: Rumour: Jaakkola to Rotherham

I still think there's a decent keeper in Jaakkola provided you don't ask him to play like an outfielder, let him kick long and stop playing him into trouble. If ever there was someone who looked totally ill at ease with what Stam asked him to do it was Annsi. His game seemed to fall apart as a resu...
