  1. I listened to the newest album because one of my students is a huge fan and recommended. I hated it. It's just elevator music.
  2. If Buendia and Cantwell go then we may start to switch to proper/inverted wingers. Especially if (when) we lose Max - Byram isn't as forward thinking and to be honest, maybe we're better off without bombing fullbacks all the time. We'd probably be more solid defensively if our Full backs had a more disciplined, dedicated defensive role.
  3. I was looking at it earlier - if Swansea and Cardiff don't go up - I reckon I'm on 14 or 15 next season - obviously pending tickets but I'm in the 750 circle so if the gates are open I should get a ticket.
  4. Unbelievable night. Chuffed for Barnsley but feel sorry for Wigan. Was hoping for another away day in Wigan next season.
  5. How much better is this than the prem. Championship is infinitely more exciting.
  6. I'd have put my house on Ollie Watkins from 6 yards out
  7. Barnsley look like they will stay up despite finishing bottom 3 - EFL confirmed earlier that Wigan's points deduction will happen tonight and they're currently 10 points clear (12 point deduction). Need to beat Fulham (currently 1-1)
  8. Luton by the way, need a win to stay up... They're winning 2-1 against Blackburn.... Both Luton goals were scored by Blackburn players (inc Bradders OG) EDIT - 3-1 with a penalty being the third.
  9. I'm watching the Brentford game - they were awful until Barnsley scored, but piling on the pressure now. They look vulnerable at the back though when Barnsley break.
  10. It could be like when we had Hucks... Green catches a corner and without looking, launches it up the wing for Hucks to run on to. Was such a devastating move to have in our locker. Dad just text me saying Placheta did 30m in 3.8 seconds. Thats not far off Olympic 100m speed over 30m (Linford Christie ran it in 3.19 for example). In the entire nfl combine (the elite college players who are moving up to nfl), the fastest anyone ran last year was a 3.82. Its really elite speed. Fifa 20 has him faster than Sterling and Salah (he's 22nd fastest player on the game) (for what thats worth)
  11. GERMAN sausage? If he's a star then there'd better bloody be Kielbasa and Slaw.
  12. That would be quite a silly nickname given that the Polish version of Peter is Piotr. There's no direct translation to English for Przemyslaw.
  13. Snyder is an awful owner. On the plus side, we have cleaned house and all those involved are out the door. It really does feel like a fresh start with Riverboat Ron.
  14. Tbf in Polish, male names are often shortened and 'ek' added to the end. Tomasz becomes Tomek etc- Pshemek (phonetic spelling) is a reasonable abbreviation.
  15. For future reference Shem-e-swav pwa-het-a
  16. The yellow and green bit. Might well be nothing anyway though.
  17. The pattern/style of the yellow and green bit of the picture
  18. Yes... all of that is true... not sure what your point is though, none of that is news to me. The discussion was around the logic of saying Downes couldn't be good because he played for the scum when they went down. Reece James is an example of a player that excelled in a struggling team... like Cantwell did this year which was the other example given.... not sure which bit of that was hard to follow if I'm honest
  19. Thinking I might sign up for it. I'm a big NFL fan and have a passing interest in NHL too. Probably worthwhile I guess
  20. The other obvious (to me at least) is reece James at Wigan last season. When we played them away I got talking to a Wigan fan and he said he'd literally only bothered turning up for the previous 2 months to see James play. However, I dont think Downes is good enough for us. I dont know much more than anyone else but my impression is that he's all blood and thunder without much finesse or technical ability.
  21. I'd stick Stiepi back in there - has his faults but he does a job in the champs of carrying the ball, running at defenders and has the odd goal in him too
  22. Think that's who I'm thinking of - thanks
