  1. Sorry, I don'e agree with that. We finished fourth last season. This suggests to me that we were good enough when we had most of the full sqad available. (FF 36 appearances, Lee,27 apps., Hooper 24apps., and Hutch 33 apps.) The performances may not have been as free flowing as the previous season when we finished sixth, but the final position was an improvement.
  2. So the problem we have rests with the "...massive amount of fans who are happy...". Shame on all these fans for having a different opinion to you.
  3. Jamie Vardy (born (Born 11 Jan, 1987)) joined his first League club, Leicester City from Fleetwood (then a non-league club) on 19 May, 2012, i.e. when he was over 25 yrs old. By your own admission, you don't know if George is good enough (your use of 'If' Hirst has pace etc.). Yet you still believe that the SWFC staff have got it wrong.
  4. 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?
  5. I would say after re-reading your posts that yes, you did say different.
  6. Of course it is - silly me. I wonder how the bookies make a living.
  7. Odds from SkyBet 2 minutes ago: Aston Villa 5/6 Sheffield Wednesday 2/1 Fulham 33/1 We were 4/1 this morning.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Perhaps we don't need any help to sell tickets over the weekend because the tickets have all been sold.
  14. 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.
