  1. What formation/personnel would you favour for the game today? I''d go for: Ruddy Martin Turner Bennet Garrido Bennett Tettey ONeill Redmond Lafferty Grabban
  2. 18 goals already this season - in 14 games! £5m might be enough to turn their heads and he''s only 23...
  3. A shake up required I think. Ruddy 6 (keep place) Martin 5 (replace with Naughton) Whitbread 5 (replace with Barnett) De Laet 6 (keep place) Tierney 6 (keep place) Fox 6 (keep place) Hoolahan 6 (keep place) Crofts 6 (keep place) Surman 5 (replace with Johnson) Holt 6 (keep place) Morison 7 (keep place)
  4. I thought he was miserable and homesick for Scotland and that was the reason he was having problems. What a load of codswallop!
  5. I dunno. Tiote, Coloccini, Barton (if he stays), Ba, Obertan. They''ve got some pretty handy players, but you are right about the manager. I expect Newcastle to finish in the bottom half along with possibly Everton (although they have lots of quality compared to us too). Can''t wait ''til Saturday - that''ll be the right benchmark for us to draw our conlcusions against. I also like the fact that our team are largely unknown commodities at this level. Nobody, including them, has a clue whether they can cut it. My guess is, some will and some won''t. I fancy Morrison, Holt, Hoolahan, Pilkington, Ruddy and Crofts to do well with Jackson also a possibility. The rest may struggle... I also think that, because some will struggle, we would do well to retain some of the players we are looking to release (at least until we have more back-up). Players like Hughes and McDonald I mean.If we can''t have strength in depth, at least we could have depth. I feel that both of them have the potential to do ok if given the chance (i.e. if other players fail to perform). We don''t want to put all of our eggs in one basket!
  6. Having reviewed the squads this season I think 6 clubs will realistically be battling for survival. Those being: Norwich, Swansea, Wigan, Blackburn, QPR and Wolves. I am reasonably pleased with our Summer signings but am worried about our central midfield and feel we are missing that experienced, quality leader in the middle of the park. I still feel we are short a couple of players and that we may end up buying in January. Really don''t want Ashton syndrome where we bring someone in too late to change things. Our team spirit is our main weapon, and I really have my fingers crossed that it will keep us up. But if I''m honest, I can see us, Wigan and Swansea going down at the end of the season if I look at the teams on paper. Here''s hoping the Lamber effect can keep on working - I''ll be chuffed to bits if I''m proven wrong!

  10. Ginger Pele. Please recognise the difference between defiantly and definitely...
  11. This surprised me to be honest, but our total attendance thus far is the largest in our league (whilst our average attendance is 3rd largest). So we can officially call ourselves the best supported club in the Championship this year! OTBC! http://soccernet.espn.go.com/stats/attendance/_/league/eng.2/english-league-championship?cc=4716
  12. no problems for me - bit sad if you have multiple usernames if you ask me...
