Re: Pre season tour

Also - seriously, are preseason games against European teams as good a preparation as preseasons against lower league opposition here? I'm actually thinking (hoping) it might be better? Depending what he wants to work on, maybe foreign opposition was specifically chosen/arranged for that? It's ofte...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Which mgrs have used Academy was your point? Anyway... Meyler 3 year deal. If he pans out, doubt Rino emerges as he did. Stam 1st yr mgr, had a go, playoff final loss on pens, bad and inexperienced 2nd year. Short tenure, who cares. Your 1871 thingy was silly? Going back to start of the Academies i...

Re: Ex Players

Yeah I wouldn't say no atm. 10k a month is extraordinary money for anyone, but of course in the unreal world of football most Championship players would find 10k a month verging on minimum wage levels.... If you only get it for 5 years, and the rest of the time you *are* on minimum wage levels beca...

Re: McShane leaves

I'm convinced hair colour is a factor for some. Barrow has let us down. So has Meite (yep, seen games where he did virtually nothing, or missed open goals, or couldn't even hit the target). Meyler let us down. Gunter has. Swift has. Blackett has. Aluko certainly has. Anyway, I guess I'm done talkin...

Re: Championship free agents... who would you have?

Looking at some of the Prem free agents, I'd certainly take Ayite or Kebano. Two quality players in a position we've lacked in a while, and I can't imagine they'll be on that high of a wage. I've always thought Kadeem Harris at Cardiff would be a decent option as well Wonder if Gary Madine might be...

Re: McShane leaves

Good servant, and we got him on a free. Tired of hearing about the Blackburn game really. He made two bad tackles, and I'm sure he felt bad. He had a bad game, it happens. Age has caught up with him, time for him and us to move on. Wish him well. This. Always gave his all, age has just caught up wi...

Re: McShane leaves

Can't think of another player that let us down at crucial times as often as he did tbf. See ya. Name all those times then. Or was this just a lazy throwaway comment because he isn’t the player he was 2 years ago? I'm convinced hair colour is a factor for some. Barrow has let us down. So has Meite (...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Marginally harder? Miazga will not play for them, he will either be loaned or sold. This depends on the loan fee there can get vs a transfer fee, or his willingness to stay as a Chelsea owned loan player. Either way, he will not get near their first team (Zouma, Tomori etc ahead of him as back up e...

Re: BFT(final)G

Paul, I've felt for a while that there's a lot of money in the game now, and more of it should routed to officiating. I'm not familiar with ref training these days, but whatever they need for them to do their jobs better should be afforded. There is a lot riding on their decisions these days, and th...

Jem Karacan deserves a whole page about him :P what a player he has before his terrible injuries. My thread on Twitter about the possible state of the squad going in to next season.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Yeah thought nketiah was highly rated but just based off the one game I watched, he wasn’t great. Obviously that’s a ridiculous level to judge someone on though. Don’t worry too much. We judged Eza on 4 games. I saw Mark Aizlewood's first game (aged about 16, for Newport County) After five MINUTES ...

Finally the Ref. Is this our worst season for Officials ? I have missed two home games this season; yet apart from Friend (who is a Prem Ref) and a couple who were at best average-this season we have had a succession of absolute plonkers. Where do the League get them from ? Something is wrong here ...

Re: Financial Fair Play

How did Wolves do it? They made some signings early doors, after which everyone was playing for 2nd place. Heard FFP rumours, but then it went quiet. Haven’t even really changed their team all that much in PL, and not only stayed up, but likely in Europe. Not out of the wood yet - report from March...
