    Jos Luhukay - In or out?

    With FFP/P&S issues meaning we have to raise something like 15 million before the end of the season. How is Jos supposed to be paid off. How will it be possible to offer terms to Bruce, McCarthey, Jokanovic etc etc, who seem to be the majority choice. Bruce and Jokanovic are used to working with sizeable budgets and have both just failed. McCarthey is a mind numbingly negative anti football manager who has done nothing with no budget at Ipswich and the fans couldn't wait for him to leave, bit like Villa fans with Bruce for that matter. A change of manager will only ever be for another unknown (cheap) option because there is no money available. The only time when it worked without money to spend was when Dave Jones replaced that other dinosaur Megson. We are stuck with the whole set up we have got and its time we got used to the idea.

    Matt Penney Contract

    Has it occurred to you, the wages these players are on might be prohibiting a move. Jones and Boyd were free transfers, because of the wages. Abdi, Hooper and Lee are all long term injured. Westwood will also be on high wages. Matias is part of first team plans obviously and only picked up an injury three matches ago. I fail to see where it is justifiable to sack anybody based on any of the above players situations.

    Level playing field

    what about Villa, how do they do it

    Jordan Thorniley OUT

    How are we supposed to stop Forest players going in late, the ref didn't even give anything and it was nasty

    Worst Signing Ever

    Wim Jonk, Klaas Ingesson
  6. Priority has to be to extend contracts of Bannan, Penney, Preston and Matias probably in that order. I think we have potentially decent cover at CH already. We have Pelupessy, Hutchinson and Boyd who can play alongside Bannan. If Bannan is out though that is a problem. I think Alex Hunt will be the answer, but maybe not for another season.

    What's going on at #swfc?

    My interpretation of what he meant was " it wouldn't do any good if i were to call certain players 10 kinds of a flange in a press conference" Tomorrow will demonstrate who is in charge

    George Boyd

    Thornily Left Back Reach Left midfield/wing

    George Boyd

    I would be perfectly happy with Thornily behind Reach. One defends the other attacks, we don't have a LWB on the books

    George Boyd

    Boyd played in a number 10 role for the whole time he was at Peterborough according to season ticket holders I know and he played right midfield for Burnley. Anyone less suited to LWB is hard to imagine

    More positives from #SWFC

    Excellent, doing something positive and getting a result shows anything is possible if you care enough
  12. This is a fantastic initiative, well done Owlstalk

    Wingback Options

    Unless we try Penney and Baker, I would say we are, yes
  14. bdmfournil

    Wingback Options

    Yes but he doesn't defend because he can't. Play Fox Reach Bannan Baker across the middle

    Wingback Options

    Reach is better further forward, so I would say Fox, Penney or Thornily, all three are better at defending
