  1. This season I only seen game against Leeds. Boyd scored in that one, but can't remember him making one sprint whole game.
  2. Forrestieri is a match winner, and with him on the pitch it is not easy for opposition to send defender on his side join attack (like Basham did when we played United), and that is difference he brings just by been on the pitch even if nothing else goes his way. Matias for me was revalation this season. Attacks, creates and helps full back playing on his side. When he is not on the pitch our left back constantly gets left to defend against two opposition players due to forward/winger replacing Matias not tracking back. Can't wait to see him starting again.

    Must read

    Quite a nice article. Also, can't help myself but to think that Luhukay is a "good guy", certainly comes across as professional as they come, and with club's (and fans) best interest in his heart.

    Scouting policy

    Talking about team that won their division, and the league ? Looking back now, it was very strong side with some real talent in it: Dawson Baker O'Grady (c) Thorniley Penney Murphy Kirby Stobbs Clare Preston Hirst Btw. Not sure if my memory is tricking me so perhaps I add couple of players from "season after" to starting 11 that won the league.

    Scouting policy

    Thompson is a red headed fella. At the start of the season he got his chances mostly off the bench and was used as central midfielder (scored nice goal as well). Since then he started (as Quist said) at right back, and seemingly made CB position alongside Rice his own. There is a interesting and heart warming story regarding him that I linked on here few weeks ago: https://www.thestar.co.uk/whats-on/out-and-about/owls-fan-scored-with-hillsborough-tour-1-310135

    Forcing high earners out?

    It seems we are doing to Jones, Abdi, Boyd... What we did to Hirst. Only difference is that now it is because we want to pressure these players to leave in January, while in Hirst's situation it was because we wanted to pressure him in signing new deal. Really not sure who sane will want to sign for us if/when word get out ?!

    That 'Penalty'

    I think that they were both penalties. And foul on Penney was even more obvious then one that he gave.
  11. We had to stop 4 games loosing streak and finally get ourselves clean sheet. We dug in, worked hard for 90 minutes and got what we came for. It wasn't pretty, but it was team performance that should galvanize team and give us base to build on for rest of the season.
  12. Honestly believe that Jos is making best out of very poor situation. Think he deserves bit of understanding.
  13. Dunno why, but I feel surprisingly calm tonight. All the pressure will be on United, hope they break under it.

    Who is the ref?

    Hope we will get good one for the derby. Against Norwich he ruined us. Whenever we tried to press them he conjured some foul out of thin air - like a magician
