  1. [quote user="Chelmsford Canary"]Not that the ground is all the problems...but it begs the questions How many clubs have been successful since building a brand new ground? Coventry, Southampton, Derby, Leicester. Not done great. Arsenal. Not much silverware since new ground for their expectations. Suffolk based team since splashing the cash. Sure you could name a few more:- Darlington etc [/quote]Southampton have done quite well. Wouldn''t surprise me if they were pushing for the top half next season. Brighton are another club who''ve got a new ground and been successful.
  2. The largest ever margin of victory in a match was 149-0 in the Madagascan league. All of them were own-goals from the losing team, in protest at refereeing descisions.
  3. [quote user="jas the barclay king"]I think Wayne Bridge would be worth a shout.... been out of sorts since the infamous John Terry Situation...but a former England player, decent cross and a good free kick... why not make a go for him, cant imagine wages would be too much of a problem as he may be grateful for a chance....[/quote]Already signed for Reading.
  4. Most likely Watford or Palace, although Palace have more chance of survival seeing as Watford most likely won''t have a full squad if they go up.Two from Sunderland, Stoke and Fulham as well. Di Canio''s probably going to all end in tears, if Stoke appoint Hughes then they''ll be lucky to win 5 games, and Fulham weren''t all that impressive last season (excluding Berbatov, and if he gets injured I can see them in trouble).
  5. [quote user="Gingerpele"]What are they saying?[/quote]Crooks is saying that Holt has done terrible in the PL over the last two seasons because he''s only got five this year. While it''s true he hasn''t scored as much as he should, it''s completely ignoring the fact that this season we''ve not been nearly as attacking. He also thinks that Welbeck has had a geat season.
  6. Crooks and Savage talking about Grant Holt. It''s painful how little they know.
  7. [quote user="tom cavendish"][quote user="ZippersLeftFoot"]I suspect that there is more than one striking version of Tettey out there for us...   [/quote]Wilfried BonyWatch this:http://youtu.be/MKWodin3QOk [/quote]Never seen him play in real life, but he''s an absolute beast on Football Manager. Would be very happy to see him here.
  8. What I don''t get is that Rose was sent off for kicking the ball in the stand when the Serbian keeper did exactly the same (twice) in the first leg and got away scot-free.
  9. [quote user="Excited Canary"]Championship over the Premiership every day of the week for me. Still, I don''t want us to get relegated. I just find it depressing that the best we can  ever really do is compete for survival every year.[/quote]I can see what you mean. I''d prefer it if we yo-yo''d for a few years (like Sunderland and West Brom used to), then settled; rather than be like Wigan (last day survival season after season).Still, I want us to stay up and in all honesty think we have a good chance of doing that.
  10. [quote user="baldyboy"]Liverpool     0-3                       2-5                     WORSE even though same margin we conceded 5 for second time[/quote]Actually, 5-2 is a better margin to lose by. The goal difference still goes down by three, but you get +2 goals scored.
  11. I''m confident that if we beat Villa, that''ll be the big confidence boost we need.
  12. [quote user="technika"]its not just the results its the nature of them and the way city are playingwe should have had wins from west ham and qpr, maybe even newcastle but its all too negative and theres no risk taking its dire[/quote]Excluding the Fulham and Liverpool games ( I can''t speak on Chelsea one), we''ve played quite well. We just haven''t been able to stick the ball in the net. Case in point, West Ham, were we had 20 shots (14 on target). And when you consider the Liverpool result was better than last season''s (5-2 is more beneficial for the losing side than 3-0), the only result  I''m *really* disappointed with is Fulham.
  13. I''m not that disappointed about the result today- after all, Chelsea are the European Champions. But I am a realist, and don''t expect us to get anything against Arsenal (I do think we''ll score one or two though). After that, I can see us getting nine points from the next three (Villa, Stoke and Reading).
