  1. I know I’m in a very small minority on here but I don’t see we were in any trouble at all until Tettey had to come out of midfield. He is written off by so many but he is still probably the best player in that out &out defensive midfield role
  2. With regard to u21s, I believe (As rules were stated after EFL vote)you don’t include anyone born on or after 1/1/1999 unless they are loans. By my calculations that would mean a squad of 26 with Aaron’s, Mumba, McCallum, Martin, Idah U21 s. Assume the odd one out would be Famewo who may well go on loan
  3. Think Adshead is training with Telstar in Netherlands with a view to a loan
  4. I see that it’s Portsmouth first team they’re playing
  5. On the bridge over the motorway just outside Burnley waiting for the police escort.....twice. First time two of the coaches decided to go & watch Wigan v Bury, they gave us our own stand.
  6. Pukki seems to play much better with Stiepi in the side, also he scored 9 goals last season. Just on the subject of goals, last season our 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th highest scorers were Vrancic, Hernandez, Stiepermann & Buendia. This season by a combination of form, ability, lack of game time& injuries , they’ve scored 1, 1, 0& 0 infact Emi hasn’t scored since he was sent off against QPR. Hopefully they can regain form(their level?)next season
  7. I thought their new loaded foreign owners had only just taken over
  8. Just hope when the PL is shown on tv behind closed doors, we don’t have to put up with the commentator apologising every few minutes for any “inappropriate” language you might have heard. That statement winds me up enough normally, it isn’t a kids tea party for heaven sake.
  9. The question marks are back row Colin Metcalfe front row Alistair Miller & Gerry Mannion
  10. 63/64 squa I think prior to the signing of Ron Davies & after sale of Burton & Hill. Can name them all but will won’t spoil it for others
  11. Was nearer the front & don't mind the view. Prefer that to the shallow rake at Liverpool, Chelsea lower tier etc. Might have something to due with my height & people standing in front of you.
  12. Level 4 seats available on website, level 5 haven't appeared yet
  13. The was a line of stewards at a higher level so I assume they had those levels as well
  14. They seem to be selling one level at a time. Level 1was on sale yesterday & this morning. Now level 4. They've also got level 5 tickets which I assume will be last to be sold. Personally think higher levels are better views
  15. As far as I know the date of the Liverpool game hasn't yet been decided. Despite all the games appearing on the fixture list as 8th Feb, half the fixtures wil be weekend of 8th & half 15th so each team gets a 2 week winter break. Would be great if PL or more likely Sky/Bt would get round to sorting out dates
  16. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/scotland/49994933 Deep joy, where does it end
  17. It's my understanding that you cannot recall a player except in January & only then if there is a break clause for either club in the contract.
  18. I thought plan B was going to be 3 at the back with wing backs as DF suggested in pre season. Unfortunately you need 3 fit centre backs for that
  19. Tettey has had 3 full seasons in the Premier League so I fail to see how he hasn't been fully tested. Yes injuries are a problem but a fit Tettey makes massive difference to our midfield. Amadou may eventually be the replacement but until a cb is fit he cant be. Oh & his passing is accurate, makes certain we retain possession & allows the creative players to play.
  20. Back in 2004 Worthy decided not to retain the big characters/leaders from promotion season & with hindsight he/we saw a nice bunch of lad get relegated with barely a whimper until it was too late. This season we seemed determined not to repeat that error, almost everyone was retained. But injuries. Last season four players captained the side, Hanley, Zimbo, Klose & Tettey, the big characters, the leaders. If we had needed another captain it would probably have been Krul. Farke also paid tribute to the influence of Jordan Rhodes within the group even when not playing or when he came on when things weren't going right. All missing on Saturday. Not I agree the whole problem but a fair part of it.
  21. Our plan B was using the pace of Hernandez rather than the build up through the middle. Plan B is on hold
  22. Tommy T is injured judging by Mrs T's instagram pictures. So possibly another one out
  23. Lads played really well but seemed to run out of gas towards the end. Not surprising really as very young side, with only one player out of his teens & 16 year olds on te bench.
  24. Noble& West Ham have previous with City. He put two players out for 3 months in Jan 2005. Bad tackles on Bentley & Helveg in a cup tie. That leopard hasn't changed his spots
