  1. The Horse & Jocky is away fan friendly. Get off the tram at leppings lane and it''s a five minute walk up Wadsley Lane
  2. I''ve lost count of how many times I''ve seen this spouted across social media & message boards today. We have joint majority shareholders on the board who both have 20 years experience of running a football club. You may or may not like how they go about running it, but if after 20 years of running a football club you''re not "football people" then such a thing surely can''t exist
  3. We need two big un''s up top, and someone who can get round the back, play in the hole and get up and down all day long before exploding in the final third.
  4. I''m surprised we''re only charging £35, as despite what the chairman says, we are apparently in real financial trouble with only the Redmond money keeping us going.
  5. Wednesday didn''t change their style to suit Hooper. They bought Hooper because he fitted the way they favour playing. He was a poor buy for us as we never played a system that suited him in his entire time with us. He needs a partner to do his work for him and lower half prem teams can''t afford to carry him in a way a top half champ team can
  6. Too right, unbelievable that the board didn''t go all out to get him in the summer along with a decent centre back & holding midfielder Thiago Silva & Sergio Busquets could''ve done a job for us
  7. No. But on the proviso, as others have said, that he return to his own football philosophy. If we''re going down lets at least do it in style.
  8. An interesting hypothetical situation & I guess it could be possible for a club to shoot itself in the foot by ostracising it''s players in this way. Have Norwich done this? Well in the absence of any evidence whatsoever to to suggest so I''m going to have to reluctantly say no.
  9. Sky (yeah I know) reporting that Coventry turned down a 7 million pound bid from Tottenham for him!! we must have compromising photos of their chairman
  10. [quote user="jamie 10"]If your Alex Neil are you satisfied with our current squad and are you confided the team you currently have are good enough to keep us in the premier league? If not what would you do and would you add any more players?[/quote] Jesus i''ll try and break this down as best I can with the information available. 1. I don''t have an Alex Neil 2. I am satisfied with our current squad 3. I haven''t confided anything to the team I currently have. 4. If I had an Alex Neil I would tell him to confide to the team that he currently has that he is confident that they are good enough to keep us in the Premier League.
  11. Whilst we have 25 professionals of age, they only count to the squad limit if they are named. There''s nothing to stop us having more at the end of the window then loaning those out who don''t make the cut afterwards. I''m not saying I think it will happen just pointing out that it''s not a bar to further signings
  12. I agree, it is to me blatantly obvious that there is plenty to be optimistic about but you wouldn''t think it looking on here since Saturday, even from the previous comments of some saying that it''s obvious! As for our best 11, if you replace Martin & Dorrens with Klose & Tettey from Saturday''s starting 11 & possibly O''neil for Howson depending on who & where we''re playing then I think that''s about it.
  13. I genuinely feel that if we can play the majority of the remaining games with our best team on the pitch we have enough to keep up. Had Tettey & O''neil been on the pitch Saturday I think we would''ve had enough to see the game out even without Bennet/Klose. With these two (with Howson for O''neil depending on the opposition) plus Klose to come in we have a decent lower mid table match day squad. If we land the 1 or 2 extra the manager identifies even better but either way still plenty to be optimistic about for me
  14. Nah, this is to leave Burtons, just seen him in there buying a suit. No point checking ASDA though everyone. He had his weekly shop with him.
  15. Think the OP team looks ok, On the square peg round hole point, I think that team has two left footed/sided centre backs, so for mine I''ve added one and gone wing backs. :) Rudd Bennett Klose Bassong Pinto Olsson Tettey Howson Brady Naismith Mbokani Subs. Ruddy Martin Wes Odjidja Jerome
  16. It was without doubt a crazy challenge to make. Nobody except the player can know for sure if there was malice aforethought, but in my experience of playing the game I have to say that if I ever ran as far as 30 yards to make a tackle anywhere on the pitch one thing was absolutely certain, you were going down once I got there. Sometimes it was controlled malice, sometimes uncontrolled s*itness but one way or another you were getting clattered :) As for getting rid of him or not starting him again after his ban, smacks a little of cutting of your nose to spite your face. He''s apologised let''s move on.
  17. Well we played all these teams in the first half of the season and were in my opinion slightly unlucky to only end up with 20 points so I see no reason why we couldn''t accrue at least that many again in the second half of the season. What makes you think we''ll be worse with a manager who''s got slightly more experience seems to learn from his mistakes and hopefully a moderately better set of players to choose from?
  18. This match is such a different proposition from Arsenal that there are bound to be a few surprises. I expect the back five to remain unchanged & Brady & Tettey & Howson to feature after that it''s names out of a hat.
  19. John Barns had a crack & I think Rudd Gullit was a pundit before he took on a management job but memory may have got the better of me on that one.
  20. If someone was prepared to pay £8 mil for him then you''d have to think you''d be looking at £15-20 mil to get any kind of proven improvement to replace him and there''s just no way we have that kind of money to throw at a player at the moment I''d have thought.
  21. To the tune of Reef''s Yer old. First draft obv Ricky the Wolf you''re no longer in favour, You''re yesterdays news and no longer the flavour, Don''t think you''d be fit to be shining his shoes, Don''t need me the paper, to read me the news. Jerome Jerome Jerome Jerome Jerome Jerome Jerome Jerome Jerrroome
  22. Of course the fact that Bradley takes more shots and attempts more long passes may also indicate that he has better positional sense and vision to enable him to do this in the first place. Or it may not. Stats are meaningless on their own and certainly can''t hold a candle to a mark 1 eyeball and for my eyes he bossed the midfield on Tuesday.
  23. Have you tried listening to canary player commentary though? Literally 2 minutes commentary then reload. Worst app ever.
  24. Get what you''re saying Morty. I just don''t think he was disrespectful to the fans. The Villa goal celebration was what could reasonably be expected of a player who at the time was in a kind of limbo between the two clubs. And I don''t think he''s meaning the fans when he said ship (sp) club. Just someone cheesed with their employer. Anyway let''s do the un-pink''un thing and agree to disagree :)
