  1. One a piece at Portaloo now!
  2. Rich, you must be to flutter a K on the outcome of any footy match... Still, I''m surprised you got much better than evens. Preston Nobend are soooo bad this season!

    I flipping dislike Delia!

    Wizard. Why the delusion that the thousands of us who read this board are bothered about your waxing and waning? Imagine if every one of us saw fit to report our every change of mood under the delusion that anyone else would care.. it would be an even bigger cacophony of kak on here than it is already! It''s a message board, not bloody Twitter and you''re acting like a self appointed celebrity. I''m fairly sure no one cares what this weeks opinion from Lowestoft is. Oh and PS stop attaching ridiculous red faced furiocons to every single blinking thread you needlessly begin.Ta.
  4. When listening to any of his oratory on subjects close to his heart, no one would be in any doubt as to the benefits of having a ''mouthpiece'' such as Fry in their corner. He''s massively well researched and hugely balanced about most things. Can I direct anyone who''s interested to his speech on re-structuring at the BBC (on podcast). What he''s doing here is allocating a portion of his not inconsiderable energy to the development of the club philosophically, culturally and of course to its profile. Services like that don''t come cheap. This is a good thing. There really can''t be any other way of spinning it. To all those who believe that he will be a "Smith''ist" - consider the intelligent influence he can bring to bear on her too.He''s no flowery nancy boy who will balk at the robust attitude of footballing culture either. See all examples of him discussing the evolution of contemporary language and his notes on people complaining about swearing... He''s good value and I welcome him for sure. Good news.

    To hell with being cautious...

    Nope. It''s going to be tough.

    Any chance we could just leave it? It''s a rumor and we''ve covered it all before.

    Cowling's "nazi" jibe

    My twopenneth for what it''s worth: Had the initial email from the City fan avoided personal insults and raised the issues at hand with any dignity, Cowling''s response would have been unjust and ridiculous. As it was I think he just responded to an immature rant with another immature rant. If I were Cowling my response would have remained deliberate and dignified and that is his mistake. The Nazi jibe was immature and misguided and exposes him as a bit of a tool but that''s it really. As an addendum to this, it was naive in the extreme of Cowling to imagine that this response may not be made public. Ironically - if his responses to such antagonisms were more appropriate and professional he''d never have to worry about his emails being exposed. City''s official response is measured and humorous. To winge to the FA would I believe be daft.And that''s about it I reckon!

    MILLWALL v SWINDON...

    I want Millwall to win. I live in London and enjoy a day out at the New Den. Always a great atmosphere and I feel the need for some away day revenge for recent results.

    Some Things Are Certain

    [quote user="AndyCanary"]Thing is dearest Mortitious Lambert hasn''t really shown too much smarts in transfers.Mcnamee was good in my view, but he''s not a starter in League 1, so how will he fit in in the Championship?Russell Martin is widely believed to not be good enough for the Championship..Rose would be backup only but if Drury was to be out for any period of time we''d have issues..Elliott probably cost a fair old smack in fees and wages but has done very little..

    Credit can''t be given for losing dead wood like Cureton, Mcveigh etc... Soooo.... hmmm.In Lambert I trust? yes. Do I need a small pickmeup soon? yes please.[/quote]Certainly can''t argue with much of that (although I think RM will be a decent cover for right back next season at least). I will be pretty jittery come July if we don''t look like filling the big gap left by Doc (although if we can get Whitbread off the physio''s table it would be a significant start). We may yet keep Rusty (again - more a squad player next season surely?) and so on and so on...

    Some Things Are Certain

    [quote user="AndyCanary"]I''m not suggesting any imminent disaster. But neither are any of the people on here. If they''re it''s a very small minority. Most the posts I''ve read are 70% sad to see Doc go, 20% happy and 10% other opinions.But you can''t just drop in with a cavalier attitude saying all will be ok, went recent history gives people every excuse to be concerned.[/quote]But I haven''t ''just dropped in''. And at no point did I say that everything was going to be ok. I just see no point in getting worked up in the negative before we see the whole picture.

    Some Things Are Certain

    Although having re-read wht I just wrote perhaps I should say that it''s actually three things which are certain! Oh - and nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

    Some Things Are Certain

    The consequences of that Andy were pretty dire - obviously. I''m not sure that''s the point I was making (and I think to be fair - you know that). The sum of my point was that it''s totally mental to start hyperventilating about our release / transfer strategies at this very early stage in proceedings. I find it hilarious that the mood on here can so quickly descend into paranoid ramblings of the exact same tone expressed during that period to which you refer. Why do we assume that players being released now will result in the same disaster that it did 2 seasons ago? One thing is certain - players get older, managers change and squads alter.
