  1. Dunno, but Hughton signed a 3 year contract when he joined. So June 2015.
  2. By "people" I assume he means his international manager/scout. Some context to the quote could be good.
  3. Tettey Howson Fer (even though he''s gone off the boil a bit since Tettey got injured).
  4. Pilkington and Tettey have both had slight injuries, and have started most games since overcoming these injuries. Ricky played for a whole season as a lone striker in Lisbon, and Hooper has done it for Celtic too.
  5. I set up in a customised 4-2-3-1 Wide. With custom tactics. Ruddy, Martin, Bassong, Turner, Olsson, Snodgrass, Fer, Tettey, Pilkington, Howson, v Wolfswinkel Ryan Bennett is surprisingly good in defence too. Changing the players movement from organised to free-form will make a massive difference. Also changing from the default formation is pretty essential. I tweak the base positions slightly, and the work rate in the formation settings too.
  6. ''We couldn''t score in a brothel''. Wiz, you are, without doubt, a wind up. Chris Hughton is our manager. He doesn''t play up front. If the strikers have an off day/week/month, that is their problem. He can do all he wants in training, but if they don''t score on the pitch, the manager is not to blame. We created 31 (THIRTY ONE) chances today. That is a lot. If the tactics weren''t right, we wouldn''t have created that many. Some of you lot are a fugging embarrassment.
  7. Good. Poyet/Di canio, same thing. Wouldn''t want either anywhere near our club as manager.
  8. Should find out tomorrow. There''ll be a press conferring for the cup game tomorrow lunch time, so he''ll either be there, or someone else will.
  9. Celebrating that free kick was pretty fun. Haha. Sadly, as poor as the referee and linesmen were, we can''t blame our poor performance on them. They didn''t give us anything, but that doesn''t change the fact we couldn''t control a football in the middle of the field.
  10. These ratings don''t really matter anyway. If you turn the MatchDay feature on, the ratings change on a weekly basis based on real life performance.
  11. I''ve had this in the jarrold before. Was the Forest game in the championship season we came up. Stood up because the rows in front of me did at various chances, and some old-ish fella kept hitting me on the shoulder with a walking stick telling me to sit down. Found it extremely annoying. People stand up when stuff happens. Deal with it, or buy a seat in the front row. So yeah, in my opinion, you''re in the right.
  12. RvW worked his nutsack off closing down and pressing today.
  13. [quote user="Jimmy Smith"]I feel it is only 1 point lost and a win versus Southampton will put us back on track.[/quote]Spot on.I also feel Spurs away was a bit of a turning point last season. Remember at the time it was hailed as "as good as anything under Lambert" by some after a bit of a rubbish start to the season. Worth noting that game is coming up soon. Could kick us into gear again.
  14. Came in here fully expecting to see someone saying he''s ''this seasons harry kane'' and judging him before he''s even pulled on a yellow shirt. Thanks for not letting me down!
  15. After a loss I don''t usually start reading posts properly again until Wednesday or Thursday
  16. Have a feeling we will see a couple more through the door. No "insider knowledge", just a feeling. Worth remembering in windows gone by recently, we''ve been he last deal to go through in Ryan Bennett and, well, Harry Kane. Maybe the second one isn''t worth remembering. But still, Davey Mac isn''t afraid to leave it late.
  17. Karl actually became ''known'' on xfm in 2002, not 2007. Probably just a fan of the K-man.
  18. Inter eyeing QuagliarellaIl Corriere dello Sport is reporting that Inter Milan are showing interest in Juventus forward Fabio Quagliarella.Walter Mazzarri is not entirely satisfied with his options up front and plans to add an experienced forward to his ranks. Anzhi striker Samuel Eto’o remains the number one name on the hit-list, but with Inter only able to offer the player €4 million per campaign and Chelsea and Real Madrid also keen, it looks as though the Cameroonian won’t be returning to Giuseppe Meazza. Meanwhile, the Nerazzurri are considering a bid for Juventus forward Fabio Quagliarella, who looks set to leave Turin due to fierce competition for places. His proven track record would make him a great signing for Inter, but everything suggests he won’t be available on the cheap. Quagliarella, 30, has made a total of 245 Serie A appearances playing for Torino, Sampdoria, Ascoli, Udinese, Napoli and Juventus, scoring 74 goals in the process
  19. Just confirmed on the clubs official twitter. "Chris Hughton: ''We have some bad news on Elliott Bennett. He has a problem with his knee that will keep him out for a few months.''"
  20. I was thinking the exact same thing on the train home. Martin had a great game, Whittaker was outstanding, but surely as team captain, Bassong has to go straight back in? 5 at the back?! Would be a decent laugh given the ''HE''S TOO DEFENSIVE HINT E'' posts.
  21. I thought the line was that he ''doesn''t expect'' to be involved. Could be a surprise inclusion.
