  1. Woolfenden looked half decent last time I saw him play. The rest haven't even proven themselves above midtable league one level. Downes? I think it was had an alright season last season but thats about it.
  2. I'm surprised if that is true. To me it seems an unnecessary risk not to have a genuine (hopefully home grown) second GK. Also one that can push Krul a bit, as he seemed to thrive off Farhmann coming in last season.
  3. Well, yes but that's naturally because they'd spent well outside of their means and would have been in significant financial difficulties had they gone down - so it factually would have been a disaster for that club, who might now be facing that disaster if goal-line technology was up to scratch.
  4. It's much lazier to assume "because they're in the premier league they're well run" when a little research showed that when they were deep in relegation trouble members of their board were already publically stating how catastrophic relegation would be for the state of that club.
  5. Re Stoke, interesting stat: If Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting plays in the next round, it will mean the relegated Stoke squad of 2017-18 had players who played in the 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2019 & 2020 Champions League semi-finals.
  6. Being in a higher division doesn't equal better run.
  7. Isn't he quite highly rated? I know they go through them quickly but Watford do make some decent appointments in-between!
  8. Sorry The reality is our entire board, Delia, McNally, whoever it might be, have made some good managerial decisions and some bad managerial decisions. I do think overall they've made more good than bad for a club our size with our budget doesn't spend as many years in the prem as it has done otherwise. You say they hold onto managers too long but equally other owners might have sacked Farke after his first season, certainly a lot of fans on here would have welcomed it. Thankfully they didn't and we were able to enjoy a fantastic season of football.
  9. So who employed Lambert? McNally or Delia? Who sacked Chris Hughton too late? McNally or Delia?
  10. Alex Neil was one closer to home, tbf.
  11. She equally let McNally sack him after one awful result in League One.
  12. I'm not sure that's fair. Someone may be able to point at Worthington as possibly the only example?
  13. I know but if we lost a couple of big players to injuries in that match our fans will be complaining about that too. Its almost like beating them now wouldnt be that big a deal - they're a midtable league one side and feel pretty irrelevant to me right now anyway
  14. Depends when the fixture is as if our priority is promotion its entirely possible with congested fixtures that we would play our u23s. I mean, we would still stand a good chance mind.
