    What pub for Blackburn?

    It does admit away fans, I''m staying there[:D], seriously though, it doesn''t allow any football fans, home or away.

    Simeon Jackson

    Can''t see it personally, more likely to allow Wilbraham out before Jackson

    What, in goal??!!

    [/quote]

    Yep. 100% record. 1 game, 1 clean sheet.

    went in goal last season in Carling cup when Ruddy went off against Sunderland, and Monday was a bit of revenge for us

    I believe it was a Carling Cup game against Sunderland when we were in league 1, what you are reffering to? And at that time we didn''t have Ruddy, i believe we had a Tottenham goalkeeper on loan who after that injury never played for us again. I''m sure someone can remember the Tottenham goalkeepers name?

    QPR

    [quote user="Gingerpele"]How did QPR cheat?[/quote]

    Maybe he is talking about Alejandro Faurlin?

  5. The bit i am looking forward to, is taking all 3 pts off them and seeing Alex Fergersons face.....Priceless : >)
  6. I thought all 4 defenders were fantastic against sunderland on monday night and it became evident, especially in the second half that sunderland just had no clue how to break them down.

     

  7. they were awful because we stopped them from playing and so they looked awful

    Simeon JACKSON, this is your chance...

    good player but unfortunally i believe he is a bit like earnshaw, needs 20 chances to score 1 ( bit of an exaggeration) : >) something you don''t get in this league.

    Couldn''t be further from the truth. He was one of the most clinical strikers in the Championship last year, he needed about 4 chances to score a goal. Somewhere on this board I have shown how he needed less chances per goal than any of our other 5 strikers did last season, all of them, Holt, Morison, Vaughan.

    Last season:

    Earnshaw - 76 shots, 41 on target, 12 goals  (6.33 shots per goal)

    Jackson - 58 shots, 27 on target, 13 goals (4.46 shots per goal)

    [/quote]

    I did say bit of an exaggeration, how many attempts on goal did we get last night? i believe it was 7 with 4 on target. Going by your calculations if he would have had all our attempts last night, he would have scored 1 goal. Just goes to show we are lacking in the goal scoring dept unfortunally.

    I have no doubt he will get his chance, but while things are working at the moment, why change things?

    Johnson

    totally agree with ryan1992, johnson has been our player of the season so far.

    MOTD2!!

    thought it was like a ghost town personally, quietest i have ever heard carrow rd but it was probably because we were all on edge wanting those 3 points so bad
  12. wouldn''t bother, apart from our goal, you wouldn''t have though we did anything in the game, dredful editing as far norwich are concerned

    No loanees?

     

    Well just Green then, as there  is a space for a GK..

     

    Bellamy would be great if he comes off, but I would consider his inclusion as being equivalent of puting a "cat amonst the pigeons". We have a settled and well-integrated squad. Craig can be difficult, so why risk it? Lambert never asks for trouble when signing players and it seems that he carefully sifts a player''s cv for any negative signs. With Bellars, he would be  kept reading all night. 

     

    His wages demands would likely go through our current sensible ceiling, in any case.

     

    Same would apply with Green, I suppose.

     

    No I would not want any former players after all. Paddon, Fleck, Russell and Cureton are four examples of it not really working, although I am sure that some on here could come up with examples of it being a good move. Does Ian Crook count as a succesful return, he was half-way to Ipswich once, I seem to recall? 

     

    An opportunity for me to ride my hobbyhorse here. Mike Walker Mark 11 would have succeeded again given time IMHO. Something was wrong in the state of Norfolk then, and rumours abounded. However, look at the nonentities who followed. Only Worthy really achieved anything.

    Martin O''Neill when he returned from Man City maybe? but he is the only one who really comes to mind, i''m sure there are a few more.

    [quote user="Jim Smith"]There appear to be widely differing views on Ruddy on here so there will never be consensus but all i will say is watch the season review dvd. yes he improved as the season went on but watch that dvd and look at how many shots just go straight through him. We cannot afford to gift teams goals next season as we will not come back from them.[/quote]

    But how many crucial saves did he make which were not shown on the DVD?, even the best keepers in the world make mistakes

    [/quote]

    Season ticket holder here. I think I remember 1 save!! yes 1 save.

    I can remember a good 10 goals that were his error or should have done a lot better with though!!

    That''s a lot for a team that finished second!

    I think this shows people who know nothing about goalkeeping who think he''s good.

    And then the real world who can see he did improve over the season but made far to many error to be trusted completely next year.

    You may well be a season ticket holder, but you must obviously be half asleep if you really believe Ruddy made just one crucial save all season.
