  1. We brought Nuhiu on because Fletcher was suspended, Hooper still not fit, Rhodes not signed in time. We started with Fernando and Winnall. How many strikers do you expect us to have?
  2. I would say after re-reading your posts that yes, you did say different.
  3. Of course it is - silly me. I wonder how the bookies make a living.
  4. Odds from SkyBet 2 minutes ago: Aston Villa 5/6 Sheffield Wednesday 2/1 Fulham 33/1 We were 4/1 this morning.
  5. Where, exactly, are these other threads? I have checked the first 4 pages of MATCHDAY and can see no other thread on McGugan. If someone wants to start a thread on any topic, that is their choice. If you don't want to read it, don't - that is your choice. If there are too many threads on any topic then I would expect the moderators to deal with it.
  6. Boro' used Rhodes to good effect last season. He scored 6 goals for Boro' last season. 1 goal in each of three matches they drew, 1 goal in a 3-2 win, and both goals in a 2-1 win. 5 of the goals came in the last 8 games. As Boro' went up automatically only on goal difference, I would say he had a very significant impact. Boro' bought him because of his record in the Championship to help them get up. He did that. Boro' do not think he is good enough for the Premier League or they have better players than him and are trying to offload him. If they succeed in getting close to their purchase price then Rhodes was a great buy for them. Here's hoping if he signs for us that he is similarly successful.
  7. Marco Silva, ex-Olympiakos manager and new Hull Manager, is Portuguese and has played and managed in Portugal. He is another 'friend' of Mourinho. He may know about Lucas from hi time in Portugal.
  8. This is about as funny as the sherlyegg post. If you are trying to be funny, it helps if your post contains some humour. If it does contain some humour, it helps if there is some originality and is not simply a rehash of a joke that has been done to death and beyond on Owlstalk. The people who have 'negged' you are not 'mardy gits but Owlstalkers who have lost patience with this type of post. I see as I write this that ViolaOwls says that "TBF you gotta laugh". Everyone has there own opinion - some will agree, some won't.
  9. I disagree with the highlighted part of your post.. During transfer windows I believe that many people come onto to Owlstalk in the hope of seeing comments/speculation about players. As can be been in this thread, some people do not want to trawl through 'megathreads'. The fact that the site administrators have seen fit to allow individual threads as well as megathreads suggests they believe both can co-exist. If they are not happy they will take appropriate action. In the meantime, perhaps you wouldn't mind if people posted what they like. As a matter of interest, why did you single out this particular thread? Perhaps you could have posed a similar question to the originator of the megathread, who has also posted yet another 'Jordan Rhodes' thread. The level of self-importance that comes across in many of your posts gives you no right to tell other posters what or where to post.
  10. Any more helpful suggestions?
  11. Perhaps we don't need any help to sell tickets over the weekend because the tickets have all been sold.
  12. Don't agree. The two highlighted comments above seem contradictory to me. Adding Hutchinson into the 'who plays in central midfield' equation will only complicate matters rather than help in resolving them. The so called 'problems' this season stem from bedding new players into the CC way of playing, finding the best mix of the talents available, and missing the plethora of chances created against Leeds and Brentford. Even with these problems, we are 5 points above where we were after 7 games last season. Onwards and upwards for me.
  13. If we were allowed to play 13 players then it would be a very good team. However, by hedging your bets, i.e. picking two players for one position, you have highlighted the problem a very strong squad has given Carlos. He has to pick 11 and that guarantees that some good players cannot get into the starting 11. He has to decide which 11 to start with dependent on current form/fitness of his squad, and the opponents to be faced. He isn't going to please everybody as is evident by the posts above.
  14. We can, as a squad, score many more goals this season because we have added to the squad: a) more pace (Reach, Emanuelson, and Buckley), b) more creativity (particularly from Abdi, Jones and Reach), and c) Fletcher's goals and assists. We can also add to the squad in January, if deemed necessary. I do not believe, therefore, that their is much to be gained by comparing goals scored last season with or without Hooper, to what may happen this season, with or without Hooper. You also say that Hooper isn't playing. He has started 2 League games and come off the bench in the other 3. He is, therefore, playing more than 'a bit part', at present. Whether or not that continues is down to Hooper. For my part, I still think he has a positive part to play in our season.
  15. 1a. There were actually 14 lines. Presumably you meant 8 sentences. 1b. That sounds like you are criticising me for something you admit you do. Have a word with yourself. 2. Perhaps you will allow me to make any edits of my posts - if that is OK with you? Ignoring points made by other posters adds no credibility to your own argument 3. Your words to Adem Poric were "...all of our recruitment this summer has been players 29 and over". That is not true. Again you just ignore other signings because they don't suit your argument. The use of words such as 'if', 'maybe', 'hardly' and 'hopefully', add little of substance. We don't know if Buckley will be gone at the end of the season. It is not a matter of significance at present. 4. I accept that I missed Pudil. Wow, that was easy. Amazing how simple it is to accept that you have made a mistake. Just in case you didn't understand how easy it is, I have written it again in the style of StudentOwl. "In the case of Pudil... I'll hold my hands up, I simply forgot we signed him, probably because he was here last season." Not sure whether or not I should add a '...good grief' here. I expect that StudentOwl will amend it for me if it is wrong.
