Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (a) sponsored by total apathy

Optimistic, love a cup run. Both teams have a point to prove, hoping both teams come out wanting to play a good game. Not too bothered about the outcome, more interested in our approach to the game and what kind of performance we put in. If we lose but have a pro longed period to how Stam wants to p...

Re: Time to think outside the box

I don't think shape or team selection are nearly as important as approach and player decisions. They're all just fricking sulking because it's not going well. There is certainly truth in this. As we've seen there is no magic bullet in terms of team selection which will 'fix' how we are currently pl...

Re: Who could replace Stam?

Maneki Neko if youre fighting to keep out of the relegation spots, youre in a relegation fight


But with 54 points still up for grabs, we are still in for a play off spot :wink:

Re: The Chris Gunter appreciation thread

Absolutely and dear old Chris has played a big part in the fortunes of 4 of them. Yep, because one right back who has been nothing more or less than a consistent performer has played a big part in getting managers sacked. :roll: DeLOLuded Yes, consistently moderate to poor and has dragged the manag...

Re: The Chris Gunter appreciation thread

His record speaks for itself. Close to 400 league appearances and 85 int caps and he is only 28. He has played at the lowest, championship level. Has been first choice with every manger we have had in his time here. If we had 11 players out there like Gunter, we would be doing a far lot better. He h...

Re: Madjeski and Howe

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

I'm against us signing Martin on loan or otherwise. Don't think it's a good idea for reasons stated above. Trouble maker? Yeah fair enough. It could destabilize our rock solid team spirit we have atm........ I am sure if he causes trouble Stam will give him a good kicking. Knock him back into shape...

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

Is anyone actually against us signing Martin? If he comes here in the right frame of mind he would be a very good addition. It will freshen up our attack line, boost the confidence of wingers that some one might actually be in the box if they cross it. The list is endless of positives. One negative...

It's rumoured that Mr Yongge will be at the Brentford game on Saturday.... Wonder if another insipid load of ******* and fans openly slating everything by half time (the few that do go of course) will have any effect on a possible change in management Thought not. Therefore we might as well all get...

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

Recurring theme with us , talented players coming here and not providing the goods. if he played in the 2006 team he would have got 30 goals . Our fans gave him a hard time but you don't turn into a bad player over night. I imagine that happens to loads of clubs, not just us. How many great RFC pla...

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

He's signaficantly better than the sum of everyone else we currently have available in that position , and will add muscle, nous, movement and a target to hit in the box. Its a yes from me. Who has been the nousiest player over the years? Cureton has to be up there surely. Big Dave Kitson - in rece...

Re: In or Out? New poll.

The way we are playing in the past 2 months, is there 3 teams playing worse than we are? Football fans are very fickle, so if Stam turns it around all will be forgotten. I am still very in the 'I dont know' camp. He has the potential to be a very good manager but I think he needs to show the players...

Re: Back from the shambles - Brum

I'm sure this had been said many times before, but since I feel strongly about it I'll say it again. Yes a new striker would be wonderful, but no matter how good a striker we have, if we pass the ball around in our own half continuously it won't help. We need to change tactics and get movement forw...

Re: Back from the shambles - Brum

The style of play can not be the reason we are looking so poor. As a fan base, we accepted that it was a total new system and would take time to bed players in and get them drilled correctly. It sort of worked last season and I genuinely believed that we would kick on. I think it is not the want of ...

Re: The more or less halfway poll

Top half finish. We will have some very good results in the rest of the season mixed with some stinkers. Stams team selections seem to be about right, balance is there on the pitch, just needs to stop the injuries and get some consistency. Confidence is a priority over every signing IMO. It looks / ...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

We came out the blocks last night with a real urgency to get up the pitch quicker. Kermie up top with Barrow and Aluko busting a gut to catch up with the knock downs. It is a shame Kelly couldn't quite get his foot on to the second balls though, a bit more grit and aggression and we would have had a...
