Re: MATCHWATCH : Barnsley (a) sponsored by Simon Osborn

As with Brum, 0 cohesion, 0 communication, 0 application, 0 imagination, 0 creativity

We'll probably win, but this is as ugly as it has been for a long time and pretty much as ugly as it gets.

Re: Rival Watch

He was plenty good enough for Bournemouth, he is an Ireland international, you don't just walk into international sides. 'Plenty good enough' except this is his second successive season out on loan at a Championship club? Clearly the brass at Bournemouth can't see what you do, OMA. Many players hav...

Re: Rival Watch

He's injured. He cannot play whilst injured. Hope that helps. You haven't got a single clue. But if he was that good, why did Bournemouth let him go? To a Championship team too. And yet Bournemouth bought a midfielder from one of the Prem’s worst teams in history because they thought he was better ...

Re: Rumour - Ruben Semedo

royalp-we Semedo doing really well at Olympiacos. Joined them on a free, but has really impressed and been called up for Portugal. Rumours of a big money move to Benfica now!


All of this, except Olympiacos paid €4.5m for him.

The big losers in this are Villarreal, who paid €14.5m for him in 2017 :?

Any sign of retrospective action on Miazga as yet?

Is there a deadline for this sort of thing?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (a) sponsored by Neil Webb

Out of interest, what's wrong with Joao and Boye and how long are we expecting them to be out for? Joao has an schlong strain and Boye's dog died yesterday so he didn't feel able to play. Amazing that averaging a post on this site every two hours for the last two years has had no discernible impact...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (h) sponsored by Adam Federici

Random HT thoughts: - Ejaria brilliant. The ball just sticks to his feet. - I really hope Puscas doesn't have a release clause. - 3 at the back is working. Morrison looks like a rock. - Richards continuing to impress. - Whatever incarnation of Swift this is, it's the one we've all been waiting for. ...

Re: BFTG - HULL CITY (AWAY)

2 world wars, 1 world cup Let's stick with Virginia then he may be the same.


Much easier to stick with a keeper who has 400+ appearances and a half-decent CV showing him having come good in the past than pin your hopes on a teenager whose conceded 5 goals in his first 2 professional games.

Re: Rumour - Puscas

Birmingham fans pretty bitter about it. One or two saying that our owners and theirs are rivals and we've tried to one up them by signing him. Explains the Morrison signing as well to be honest. Few suggesting that Gomes knew nothing of the Morrison signing. He did seem pretty pissed off on the Spa...

We couldn't have wished for a better opening opponent than SW at home. Same financial issues, soft transfer embargoes, league scrutiny, and even worse in that they've no manager and, according to one forum, are 'a club in disarray'. How painfully unsurprising then to get Royally (because it's what w...

Re: Where will we finish?

Going to be a difficult season. Unless we bring in some further loan signings. Still hoping that Baker returns. Once transfer window closes we'll have a better idea of how high a position is even possible. +1 The Lewis Baker who's signed a season-long loan with Fortuna Dusseldorf. I'd suggest that ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Michael Morrison

Club statement is a bit ambiguous on whether Jose played any role in this at all. What on earth does this mean? 1. There isn't a quote from JG in the club's statement announcing the signing of the player (I get the team in on tour, but this is a simple PR exercise and it's not hard to draft somethi...

Re: CONFIMRED - Michael Morrison

Club statement is a bit ambiguous on whether Jose played any role in this at all. If not, and Howe's sanctioned this in his absence, I'm not sure how he'll feel.

IMO Morrison's a beast and a battler and as good as we could hope to get for nothing but wages.
