    It must be quite fun being a journalist when you can get away with stuff like this. Bit of passive grammar, no sources cited, and bosh, got yourself a news story. I imagine it went something like this: *phone rings* Steve Bruce: "Hello?" Journalist: "You should sign Philipp Wollscheid. I am imploring you." Steve Bruce: "I'm on holiday you tw@t." *line goes dead* Journalist: "Boss! I've got that story you wanted!" Boss: "You'll do for me, son. You'll do for me."
  3. how many pages this transfer window before we actually do any business in or out. For me even if we do nothing for the first team regulars in or out. There are playing that need regular football to improve. Neilson, Ogrady, Wildsmith, Kirkby - 4 young players who all need game time at a higher level than development team. I would loan all out the league 1 or 2 to get some games under their belt. Wildsmith has gone backwards from last season and needs to be playing regularly, have a recall option if either Dawson or Westwood get injured. If we let him stay understudy it is harming his development.
  4. Should rename this thread ' Non transfer rumours'

    You could be in the minority there Vulva. I’m less bothered with the player interviews... they are transient employees.... the fans will always be there and their views and experiences are seldom aired. I’ve heard dozens of player interviews but I ain’t seen many of those fascinating fan stories.

    Unless I've missed something, when did Carlos or JL ever say FF was difficult to handle. Okay then, how did Bruce handle RM wrongly?
  7. All fantastic players, can make a case for all of them so people will always disagree.

    Beautifully shot and framed throughout. Visually it looked absolutely gorgeous, and sounded great too. I wasn't sold on the fluctuating chronology to be honest. Just as the film settled into one timeline, it would suddenly jolt the viewer into a completely different decade. I appreciate it was deliberate, but it felt a little dislocating and jarring to me. Well done to Matt though, he captured some thoroughly lovely moments. I'm surprised it went straight from DVD to YouTube. Think the club could have made it available as a download first to help raise a bit more cash for the charity.
  9. I will ask the same question again tomorrow then

    I think it's only a small number of fans. The majority will be very happy. OT is only a very small number of fans.

    I've no idea having never met either of them .....i'm saying that just because bruce is coming it doesn't necessarily mean that he'll be able to handle FF any better than carlos or jos did....the poster I was replying to was sure he would and he may well may but I don't think it's cast in stone that he will looking at the way he handled McCormack .......

    Rhodes

    In an ideal world, we wouldn’t have signed either, Certainly I wouldn’t have. Think it will be almost impossible to get Rhodes out. He doesn’t have the ability to play regularly at this level, and no league one clubs could afford him, or his wages. We are stuck with him, as far as I can see, so I was just speculating on how we might best use him, but yes, get rid if we can
  14. As title I’m going with my son would love to take my daughter too so if anybody has a spare child ticket let me know! Thank you
  15. I’d have thought we’d at least have moved a few youngsters out. We have had a pretty successful U23 group in recent years, and, if Jos were to be believed, many of the group were ready for championship football He was probably wrong about that, but you’d have thought they would have been of interest to lower league clubs For example, do we really need 5 professional keepers kicking around the place?

    Chelsea lack confidence

    even if Chelsea do lack confidence, they are still a huge team with quality players. But that being said, Bradford went there a few seasons back & came from 0-2 down to run out 4-2 winners. and this was against a better CFC than we’ll face on Sunday. pretty sure Drogba played that match. Its the magic of the cup. I’ll be there, quietly optimistic that we’ll get something- but if I leave the stadium losing to a better team, I won’t be bitter. Just enjoy the atmosphere. Back the boys til the final whistle & who knows what’ll happen WAWAW

    Not sure if these are the regs? (j) Temporary (loan) Transfers (i) A player on a temporary (loan) transfer is ineligible to compete in the Challenge Cup Competition unless permission to do so is given by the lending Club in writing and a copy is received by The Association by 12 noon on the Friday prior to the date fixed for playing the Round. Any permissions must clearly state that the player has approval to play in The FA Challenge Cup Competition. A registered Trainee or a player who is registered on a Scholarship for work experience may play for another Club, subject to written permission being given by the Club that he is registered to and provided that such permission is received by The Association by 12 noon on the Friday prior to the date fixed for playing the Round. The Association will not give permission for players on loan or work experience to play against the lending Club. (ii) A player recalled, at any time prior to the date of the Round, to his original Club from temporary (loan) transfer, in accordance with the terms of the loan agreement, may represent his original Club. Such player may only play in postponed and replayed matches if he had been recalled in time for the first match in accordance with subparagraph (i) above and (iii) below as applicable. (iii) A player on temporary (loan) transfer is eligible to compete if transferred by the lending Club to the loaning Club after the date and time for player qualification for a round but must have been eligible to play in the original tie. (iv) Players on season “long term loan agreements”, are not considered “loan” players for the purposes of the Rule, and are therefore eligible to play in the Competition.

    Just do EVERYTHING we can to get rid. Winnall can do this role you suggest and probably adds more to the team too.
  19. I don’t think the only two options are selling/buying or doing nothing. Much like was mentioned to you yesterday when you were spamming the thread with the same thing.

    Personally, I loved it. I definitely do understand those who say every club think they’re the best club with the best fans and I agree that sometimes we go over the top with it. I think it brings home more than anything the whole range of emotions you go through as a supporter. You can go through really bad times and still find something to laugh about and remember fondly. I have 5 kids and have taken them all as youngsters, though only one remained a regular with me till circumstances dictated we could no longer go. We had some great days both home and away and I treasure those now. I think the film embraces the whole family thing. Most of us start with our Dads and then make friends with random people you sit or stand next to on matchdays. You form a bond with people and I think that’s what it shows you and that can’t be bad , can it ?
  21. For me, it got to a stage with Dross here that I couldn’t do the Hi-Ho thing before the match. Hes gone let’s move on and support a proper manager when he arrives. cant wait for next season now. UTO
  22. Have we sold or signed anyone yet or are we still sat on our hands?
  23. JOS thread in regards Wednesday pal

    Forestieri

    FF is the type of player who needs an arm round the shoulder from the manager and be allowed the freedom on the pitch. Carlos did pretty well at getting the best from him while Jos got rid of every bit of confidence he had and totally restricted his game plus the injury hasn’t helped. Think Bruce could return him close to his best.

    Such a strange thread. People seemingly not happy that an absolute quality player is coming back from injury and raring to go. Very odd folk.
