    teletext today re Huckerby

    I was just reading the post about people who have been here for a long time.

    I thought I''d check out old posts.

    Teletext made me laugh!!
  3. what about Cam? Where did he go?

    Boucing back from EPL relegation - Interesting read

    I agree - our previous relegations from Premier League have not been good either.

    Boucing back from EPL relegation - Interesting read


    Could not see if this has been mentioned...good read.

    Shows how important the recruit of new manager will decide on going up again.

    One day to go how many signings tomorrow ????

    If they are not backing him, surely they should have sacked him by now and given a manager this window to bring in new?

    Slightly disagree, my take on it is stay up on cheap...and spend more in summer

    Corners vs Direct Free Kicks

    Why is Snodgrass one of best in premiership for dfk but total rubbish at corners?

    In my opinion anyway...

    Song for Hughton

    I was looking this chant up the other day, when Man City sung to WBA fans

    Championship, Championship you are going

    Championship, Championship we pray

    Championship, Championship you are going

    You are going at the end of May

    A Stat Angle On Who is Going To Drop.

    I tried to highlight last week that it''s not just league games that count. Obviously only league games collect points. However some of our rivals for the bottom three places have FA Cup, League games and Europa League games (Swansea).

    Sunderland and West Ham have both progressed to semi-finals, and other teams will get further in FA Cup with distractions to the league.
  14. Chelmsford Canary

    Target 40pts how this will be achieved

    My prediction is 36 with points from :-

    Newcastle - 1

    Cardiff - 1

    West Ham - 1

    Villa - 1

    Stoke - 3

    Sunderland - 3

    West Brom - 3

    West Brom, West Ham, Cardiff, Fulham, Sunderland and Stoke all on less points.

    Any wins from the other games will be a bonus, but I never expect us to win against top teams so write them off and don''t get excited either way.

    Easily safe this year with some poor teams, however need to take into consideration Arsenal, Chelsea and Man City (Liverpool, Everton and Spurs to an extent) have not dropped as many points compared to other years.
  15. Homes against Sunderland, Stoke, WBA are so important!
  16. Has it ever worked in any season when in a dog fight?

    Hull Match Thread

    People saying CH out! What can he do to stop Snoddgrass crossing the ball? Great at free kicks! That cross was woeful!!

    Cup Success = Relegation?

    Since our exit of the cup this week, I thought I''d look into the success and failure of progressing in cup competitions and relegation at the end of season. Both FA Cup and League Cup.

    Some will say what clarifies as success, so this is based on getting to fifth round or further, and only for the last 10 years:-


    Wigan - FA C Winners

    Reading - FA C 5th


    Bolton FA C QF

    Blackburn LC QF


    Birmingham LC Winners and FA C QF

    West Ham LC SF and FA C QF


    Portsmouth FA C Finalist and LC QF


    Middlesbrough FA C QF


    Charlton LC QF

    Watford FA C SF


    Birmingham LC QF and FA C QF


    Southampton FA C QF

    12 teams out of 30. I''m not saying it is a factor, just to see whether there is a correlation between the distraction of league and cup games. Some team also may have played replay.

    Teams still in FA Cup and League Cup this season:-

    Swansea - Birmingham (A)

    Cardiff - Bolton (A)

    Hull - Southend (A)

    Sunderland - Kidderminster (H)

    Palace - Wigan (A)

    Fulham - Sheff U (A)

    West Ham LC SF

    Sunderland LC SF

    Swansea Europa

    Several of the above will progress further in the competitions, with injuries and suspensions!

    Mick Dennis how much does he know ?

    [quote user="morty"][quote user="Jimbo_Canary"]

    [quote user="norfolkngood"]he states strongly they will not sack CH ![/quote]


    Then dare I suggest the fans anger will turn in on Delia and the board.

    [/quote]Only if idiots stir it up.The sooner some of them realise that our board knows more about running a football club, the better.[/quote]

    Well said Morty

    The club won't sack him

    The pennies dropped!!
  21. Chelmsford Canary

    Sin bins ...... yes or no ?


    I hate it when a player is suspended for 3 games but it''s against 3 teams that were not on the end of the offence!

    People will say it''s always been like this so don''t change. But people said goal line tech will not happen!?
  22. Chelmsford Canary

    The axe has been swung

    How long has it taken Poyet to get Sunderland playing well? It''s too late to sack him in my opinion! Stick with him and KTF! Fulham, Cardiff, WBA, Palace all changed and none are doing much better?!

    Everton away was hardly going to be a 3 points with their form wake up!

    The Bottom Twelve

    This will not go down well, but surely these are the teams we should be competing with, i''ll be told I have no ambiton, but we are in a different league to the top 8 and are not able to compete...simples!

    When do the players need to stand up and take responsibility?

    Against United there were two incidents that frustrated me..

    1. A simple throw in between Martin and someone. We immediately lost possession and set United on another attack, from our throw in at an attacking stage

    2. A overlap pass from Snoddy to Martin. I don''t think he even looked to see that Russell had not even started the run...the ball went out for a throw.

    Very frustrating - I know every pass, throw, free kick etc is not going to be right, but these are basic football moves. I sometimes think the effort is not there. Wes is the only person I can think will put 100% effort in, even though I may mis-pass or dribble too far
