    Mario's contract?

    Mario in the middle with McLean out wide. Anyway, that’s not really the point. All I’m saying is maybe both Vrancic and Cantwell are stalling on signing new contracts as they want reassurances on game time. Seems understandable, given the very different but respective very important stages of their careers. Neither needs to be spending half the season or more, sitting on our bench.

    Mario's contract?

    I’m not saying Mario doesn’t deserve a new contract, as he definitely does. I’m looking at it from his point of view. Does he want to sign if, rightly or wrongly, he’s got too many people ahead of him? I’m not sure of the stats but I think he started less than 15 matches last season. The point about Todd was that in those games when Buendia was suspended, he started two of them ahead of Vrancic, who you’d have thought would’ve been a shoe in at that stage.

    Mario's contract?

    Mario and Todd are both in discussions I believe. Maybe they want guarantees about playing. As good as Mario was last season, he was never really seemed to be first choice. Todd was actually keeping him out of the team at times!

    Name That Tune

    Great, cheers FR!
  6. Anyone know what the Zimbo song is please? I know how it goes but I just can’t find the track it’s taken from despite being a popular piece of music - it’s doing my brain in! Cheers!

    Alex Tettey

    He’d be on the bench if it wasn’t for the home grown rule.

    Wednesday's dilemma

    Couldn’t agree more YF. Its pretty nonsensical to think that a team would limit their our promotion prospects in order to dent a local rivals chances.

    Time to shake it up at Wigan

    Several players had off days last night, which I would guess is largely down to how Reading set up and the lack of an Argentinian magician! I’m sure we’ll get to grips with Emi’s absence and I think Vrancic starting on Sunday would help with that, as the most similar type of player we have to Emi. On Krul, he’s ok but no more. He seems to pick the ball out of the net far more regularly than he makes a blinding save. The poster that says he saves what he should and nothing more, is spot on IMO. Reading’s keeper kept them in the match with several very good saves, which is why he was their MOTM. I don’t recall Krul making a save of note but conceding two goals, which is sometimes how the cookie crumbles but this does appear to happen more often than it should. Maybe he’s just unlucky with the quality of shot being faced but that seems a little far fetched.

    He could be ‘back in Cuba playing with the birds’ - sounds alright to me!!!

    Pukki starts for Finland

    I was surprised when he wasn’t taken off in the Hull match. He’d had a very poor performance for his standards and just looked shattered. We were 3-1 with 30 mins to go and appeared to be cruising to a comfortable home win....

    I’d be very surprised if he’s still on Norwich academy wages!

    Adam Idah

    Has Idah signed pro terms with us yet? I saw a few of the other lads like Spryou did bit Idah was not mentioned, which I found very odd. Have I missed something?

    If we don’t go up, I can see many of our squad going to premier league clubs, that’s how much of an impression they’ve made this season.

    Trybull & McLean

    I thought Trybull was very good last night and McLean was decent so on individual performances, I don’t think you could drop them. However, I do think, as a pairing, they leave us more exposed defensively than if we had Leitner or Vrancic playing. So in the best interests of the team, I think we probably need to change it.
