  1. I think FF is a better player than Rhodes and if you could offer me a focused, happy FF like in 2015/16 we would be mad to get rid. But I don't think FF was particularly good last year and, if the rumours are true, it hardly looks like we'd be seeing a focused and firing player next year. Plus, and I don't if it bothers you, but I find a repeat performance of last summer after the support he's received pretty disgusting if true, and I've defended him up to now.
  2. 2015/16 Forestieri was irreplaceable, last season's isn't. And if he really is trying to force a move away after receiving widespread support, not to mention a whacking new contract, after his tantrum last year, that's an absolute insult to the fans, DC and CC. Don't want to see him sulking around next season so get £10m for him and build a team based on that 6 game winning run at the end of last year.
  3. Slightly off topic but did anything happen with that Sag inspection at Hillsborough the other week? Or will we still be operating with a massively reduced capacity next season?
  4. I was quite ambivalent about this one before because as much as I really like Carlos, a lot of the performances this year have been drab. That being said, he's had a lot to deal with this year so hopefully we'll get a season without tantrums and injuries to key players and we'll challenge for the top two. One thing that was encouraging from last year was that 6 game winning run under pressure- more of that from the off and we'll have a chance. I'll definitely be backing him 100%.
  5. Can't decide personally. On the one hand, he's got us to fourth in league in spite of some really poorly timed injuries to key players as well as having to deal with the tantrum of our star player on the eve of the new season. I also think that despite the massive squad, he still seems to have maintained a good team spirit, which could quite easily be lost with someone else. On the other hand, we've put together one of the most impressive strikeforces ever seen at this level and we've had far too many games this season where we've created nothing for them. Difficult, and you've also got to consider the fact that there is no guarantee the next manager will be a better one.
  6. I don't think we can go on with a style of play where our strikers regularly leave the field without even having had a sniff of goal. I personally think he'll walk anyway. Brilliant last year but this year has been really quite unenjoyable.
  7. I love how much the money we've spent seems to really upset the other teams. This after taking the wee wee out of us for years for being skint and having to sell any decent player we had. It's almost as if they preferred it when we were rubbish.
  8. Wouldn't be surprised if it's just Dom Howson spreading gloom as he always manages to put a negative slant on anything swfc in all of his articles in the Star. Somebody at the club should have a word with him. Meanwhile, James Shield on Sufc side of the star has managed to put a miraculously positive spin on every one of their six years in league one; in fact, I remember after one of their play off defeats he didn't even mention that they'd lost in the paper the next day.
  9. I can't imagine the gate receipts from the 12 fans Hull brought would have been worth much anyway.
  10. Have we actually a decent number of tickets on Lower Lepp or is it going to be the same measly 1k that we got for the Wolves game?
  11. Absolutely no chance for me. Hate the majority of new stadiums and every time I visit a ground like Derby or Wigan I come out thinking the same thing- thank god we don't play in a boring soulless bowl like this. Who wants an identikit ground in a retail park next to a Starbucks and a Frankie and Bennys? I honestly don't think I could stomach that.
  12. Would prefer stripes but this is the lesser of two evils. At least it will be a blue AND white shirt again.
  13. Ask about the SAG nonsense and STRIPES, STRIPES, STRIPES!!!!
  14. That passing sequence is so depressingly accurate.
  15. Amazed so many have put Leeds anywhere near the Pigs, never mind above them. Is that an older generation thing or something? For me nothing comes close to United in terms of rivalry. The build up and fallout to a Leeds game doesn't even register on the Richter scale in comparison to a steel city Derby. Beating Rotherham and Barnsley is only more fun than a normal win just because they hate us so much. I find their seething anger against us quite adorable in a way.
