  1. I don't think it's that simple. He was clearly not tracking / putting in the work rate when he first started. That has changed recently.
  2. Football fans are always all or nothing. Adam Idah is either the new Ronaldo or not good enough for League One. We're either trying to finish Champions League places or lucky to avoid relegation. The "average" reality isn't very interesting, so fans always deal in extremes.
  3. The press always find a way. Apart from thinking he's a Rolls Royce of a player, I have no knowledge of him or opinion of him on a non "he's class at football" level, so it is good to hear that he seems a nice bloke too. However, having said that, I don't really care if someone is a nice bloke, why are we (as a country / nation / press - not you and I) interested. I want him to win football games, and unless he is criminal, I couldn't care less - Roy Keane wasn't a nice bloke, but you'd have him in your team.
  4. Thank you. Ignoring spidey sense again, but, clue's in the name "seat for life" I would think.
  5. I genuinely have no idea what is going on here. I often see the essex vs the rest of forum posts, read a little, shake my head and walk away. My spidey sense tells me that I don't want to know whats going on, but for some reason, I'm ignoring it. Anyone want to - in a paragraph or less- explain what's going on here? I think I missed the start of the saga and can't catch up...
  6. Is that even allowed? I was under the impression you couldn't sell a player that you had bought for "X" amount of time, but no idea if that is actually true or not.
  7. In ultimate irony, Belgium is definitely more of a country than England is... (cue discussion regarding the definition of "country" - constituent country vs sovereign state).
  8. Bradley Johnson, the modern (ish) day Jeremy Goss? A bit sh*t but has a worldie to remember in him.
  9. Based upon that it's easy to suggest that they are thick. However, I'd suggest that anyone that wants a fight based upon football are thick. We have those people too...
  10. I'm not even sure that it has failed, but signing up to the premise that it has; In the scheme of things, a million isn't a lot. I'd rather we tried these things and they failed than sit there playing 4-4-2 (ironically, Wagner appears to be in favour!) and stagnating. Yeah, I know, people like to complain...
  11. I appreciate that, and I can understand owners wanting to go that route when paying money for results. However, I watch football because I like it, I want to be entertained. Hughton football was the least entertaining I have witnessed. Sucked the joy out of football said above is bang on. Horrible, just horrible to watch.
  12. It wasn't a foul. I can't say I really thought about the ref during the game, which, in itself tells the story. Now that I think back, I agree, I thought he was really good. Always easier to say when the big calls go your way (even if they are right). Wonder what the WBA fans think of him...
  13. The same ones that desperately wanted Farke out and then complained when his replacement didn't outperform our best performing manager for 30+ years, that they demanded was replaced? Stupid is, as stupid does.
  14. If you paid me the money he gets, I'd be "a great lad" too! Hugill is stealing a living, as a great man once said (about someone else), "he couldn't trap a bag of cement". Barnes, despite recent form not being brilliant, I think is overall better than I had expected. He's got a bit of the dickov / holt ability to really annoy the opposition but he also has ability that I did not appreciate. I know people have enjoyed slating Barnes recently, but you don't play 200 times in the Premier League without ability.
  15. It's not even close. Barnes is 100x the player that Hugill is. I'm not saying Barnes is fantastic (but I think he's good at this level), but I am say that Hugill is an absolute donkey, who I genuinely think I have better skill level than (and I don't think I'm any good).
  16. Where you do believe that I indicated that I am not happy with a hard earned point? Thinking that taking Rowe off was a bad decision is not the opposite position to that, so perhaps not project opinions on to others?
  17. Firstly, no need to be hostile. Secondly, I don't think he was, certainly no more than others (eg Barnes). Thirdly, did it not occur to you that he was the only one capable of doing anything?
  18. And bring on whom? Barnes made a mistake, but lets not all over react - as usual - there was still a lot to do and they could have been stopped. Players are not either AMAZING or AWFUL. There is a middle ground usually, but fans, for some reason always go for the over dramatic rubbish.
  19. Result is ultimately what matters, but this is shameful. I am ashamed that we are so poor and they are clearly much better.
  20. Terrible. But could be worse. Could be a Man Utd fan. As a child of the eighties, I love how the glory hunting kids I went to school with and were upset when they didn't win the league, now realise what most fans feel...
