  1. Anyone else get a Daniel Farke bobble head? mine arrived today and I love it! Great piece of merchandise and sits nicely with my Morrison and Presley! #farkemancrush

    A couple of transfer rumours...

    Wonder if any possibility of trippier + huge sum of cash for Max?!

    What price Webber?

    Sorry GED, can’t agree with that. As much as he would’ve enjoyed last season and the adulation he has rightly got, there’s no way that would be enough to keep him if a big club came in with the right job. apart from his wife also being employed he won’t have anything like the same connection with the club like us fans. Don’t forget at the beginning of the season many of ‘us’ fans were questioning his judgement. Also I expect he was equally chuffed at Huddersfield but showed no issue dumping them for us (a very strange and presumably money/power driven decision given they’d just been promoted). Ive a lot of respect for the job he’s done here but also accept he’ll move on when the next step in his career is offered. Thankfully the Man U one, in its current guise without the autonomy he will want, isn’t the one. I just pray we get at least one more season to help secure our premier league status.
  4. Expect many will have seen this clip but it really sums up to me why we are top of the league. yes, we have some wonderful players in the likes of Buendia and Pukki. But what Farke has really brought is passion, togetherness and fight and that’s what’s brought this unexpected success. He’s shown faith in all the players and backed the younger ones and we are now all benefiting from that. credit to Ben Godfrey, this is one hell of a recovery run in the 80th minute. i just love this team!
  5. Hadn’t heard the interview so that’s good to know. its an interesting point re other changes. I appreciate the calls to change likes of McClean, Hernandez and Stiepermann. Not because they’re bad players but because the last two are a bit off form and tired and we all know how good Vrancic and Leitner are. However, now is not the time to panic and we should stick to the style and structure that has brought us such success over the season. I’d bring Buendia back for Leitner and switch Vrancic for McClean.
  6. Like others I’m beginning to worry that we’re struggling for the next win. Obviously, we all expect Buendia back Monday but this probably goes against Farke’s usual stance of taking time reintroducing players. Presuming this isn’t a risk given a) haven’t won without him, b)no one has stepped up and replaced him. Sure worrying over nothing and can’t wait to see a fired up (but not reckless!) Buendia giving a man of the match performance to secure our return to the premier league!

    Swearing at matches

    Taking kids to a football match does make you think differently about your own and others behaviour. Remember taking my daughter to her first game (away v Birmingham) she was absolutely terrified when she heard the noise from the supporters inside the bar area. I just hadn’t thought about how intimidating an atmosphere it is for young kids. It was all good spirits and pre match chanting but a shock to her. When I take my young son now I have to be careful with my own language and do wince a bit when I hear some of the more extreme expletives from others around us.

    Krull Footwork

    Great post Hank and I agree 100% with that. Krul has certainly made some big mistakes and probably isn’t as good a keeper as Gunn. But given that we have been playing with an extremely young and inexperienced back four I think he has been very important. I would think his presence and character have been essential during the season. I’m not sure the defence as a whole would have been as strong without someone like Krul. I’ve no doubt that we will need to look for a new, premiership quality, number one IF we go up. But even then I think Krul will be the perfect back up keeper. A good character in the dressing room and someone to offer support to the new keeper and provide more than adequate back up

    Run In

    All very interesting but the fact is that there are loads of ‘ifs and buts’. Part of the beauty of football is that it can be so unpredictable and I think that is especially true in the Championship. Even though we are playing brilliantly when I look at our fixtures I don’t see any as being guaranteed wins. The position will also change as we get nearer to the end of the season. Some teams will be fighting for their lives and others might be ‘on the beach’ (but even some of them will play better than expected as they are under no pressure). its great to look at these predictions and theories but I’m going to be sticking to the one game at a time approach!
  12. I’d have been tempted to start Hanley and Tettey as well. Probably would’ve been unfair on Trybull and Godfrey but fact is we have shipped a lot of goals recently. i hope we have a real go at Leeds and would love to come away with a nice win. OTBC

    Jacob Murphy

    I would be really interested to know if we made any enquiries about him coming to us. wouldve been a handy option but wouldn’t play him above Hernandez or Buendia. i think he would’ve chosen WBA anyhow, it’s a bit embarrassing to come back to the club you’ve been sold by and admit you weren’t really good enough for your new club....bit like going back to an ex with your tail between your legs!

    Good riddance as far as I am concerned. not sure how people are defending his attitude....his public disrespecting of Farke in his first game was a disgrace. He’s lucky Farke gave him another chance, I wouldn’t have. Even then he didn’t take it and was just petulant in most games last season. he has the talent and actually hope he shows it at Reading so he helps us get promoted by scoring against our rivals.
