Re: Barrow on the way ?

Exciting player on his day, most up out of their seats on their feet with him charging towards goal. Scored some vital goals too and became besties with Yak.

Can only and should only wish him the best of luck.

tmesis I don't think I'd call Maskell a success either.


I thought that but looking at his wiki it's 72 apps and 99 goals :shock: That cant be correct, can it?

Should be 26 league goals.


That's look more like it, thanks Cube

Re: MATCHWATCH : Hull City (a) sponsored by Nigel Adkins

morganb Was Boye coming off at half-time simply tactical or was he injured?


Be interesting to find out. Sounded like he was decent

Re: BFTG - HULL CITY (AWAY)

There are several issues with a 3 at the back for me. 1: Unless the opposition is playing 2 up front it is simply a waste of a man. 2: One of those CBs needs to be able to pass. None of ours can. 3: It pushes too many of our attacking players out of the team. Is a third CB worth taking one of Joao,...

Re: BFTG - HULL CITY (AWAY)

Back to the game, I was disappointed we didn’t start with the (3-M's) Morrison, Moore and Miazga in the back line. The first half sounded horrendous listening to Dellor, this was backed up by various twitter feeds. Second half even Dellor got excited and it sounded like we were battering them after ...

Re: BFTG - HULL CITY (AWAY)

Nah it was more than that. He was like a kid with a new toy. Embarrassing. He spoils most games for me to be honest. The show is more about his opinion of players and the manager rather than just keeping us all up with the filed-play and commenting on the game. I once wrote him a polite email; this...

Re: Meite tweet

The tweets about outgoing players now deemed by some fans as being out of favour were crass at best. Players would have spent the last couple of days seeing new signing coming in followed by a shedload of tweets by so called fans disregarding existing players as if they were used toilet paper. Most ...

Re: Favourite signing of the summer

Didn’t realise Asaba scored that many so, yes should be considered a success. Thought he was crap though. He just never seemed to fit in at Elm park

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader to Wolves

I’m not sure he did. How much do you think Miazga would cost? He told Gourlay to put a new contract together for Moore. Gourlay delayed and Moore had the Brighton contract ready to sign. Moore had to chase Gourlay for the contract because he wanted to stay. So Dai could just have taken the money, a...

Re: Favourite signing of the summer

In relative terms, yes; didn't Lita break our then transfer record? And before that iirc Caskey at 750K. Ended up not a bad player. “Big money” moves to Reading since 1985 Hurlock - success Canoville - success Curle - success Moran - flop Maskell - success Meaker - flop Caskey - success Asaba - suc...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader to Wolves

I thought Brighton’s 10m for Moore was good offer. Turns out Mr Dai made the right decision not to sell, took a similar view to hold on to Meite last season. If the club can afford to turn down 8mil then they can afford to offer Loader a bumper contract and develop him. Wolves offering similar money...
