    Gi new lads a run.

    I don't see Palmer or fox as wing backs but in flat back 4 like we have been using lately they are more than competent... ...

    Well done Wednesday

    Yeah I think his ambition outweighs his ability when it comes to passing the ball.. steady enough centre back though.

    Best manager I've seen was big jack and it took him 2 years of turgid football grinding out results while built a successful team .....think it could well be the same for Bruce, whether he'll get the time though as to be debatable.

    Millwall - V - Wednesday OMDT

    I've always had that philosophy so happy enough with the point but that was a poor performance tonight …….
  5. another clean sheet is a big positive .how we are playing as an attacking unit isn't …..we look like what we are , a mid table side.who are difficult to beat but constitute no real threat to the opposition .

    Man of the match - Millwall (A)

    keeper and back 4 all worth a 7....5 & 6s for the rest of them . ……… the lack of attacking intent made it seem we were happy to take point which is a bit disappointing .
  7. wonder how many we have on the clubs data base of people who have actually bought a ticket ……I couldn't hazard a guess

    Nuhiu picked above Winnall

    nuhiu is an ideal player to have on the bench when your either chasing the game or hanging on to a lead …...defensively he excellent when the balls pumped into our area from free kicks ,corners …..if we are chasing then lobbing it into the oppo's box he causes them problems just by his sheer size ……...we all know what he can and cannot do as do the 5 managers who have consistently included him in the matchday 18 .

    Vic Buckingham

    but by the time Buckingham left we'd dropped to 10th and lost 6000 supporters from when he took over …...I remember him as not being popular but like I said earlier he was probably hamstrung by the board's tightness in the transfer market .
  11. going back a long time colin Dobson looked like he was destined for the top but ultimately didn't deliver in the top flight ……..

    Vic Buckingham

    from what I've read Buckingham wasn't popular with the players …….the crowds dropped like a stone with him in charge even though we never finished outside the top 6 which sort of goes against we were an attractive team to watch . …….i'm only guessing but taylor and him were chalk and cheese and no real surprise when the board got rid . …..cant have been an easy job though for him coz in the 3 years he was here I can only think of 3 players that he signed from other league clubs which tells you how much ambition the board had .

    Fox...... Cannot start again!

    totally inept attacking performance from the team so lets drop the left back ……..fox wasn't great be he played better at left back than FF did as striker .

    Man of the match -Reading (H)

    disappointing patchy performance ,went for westwood as for me he was the only one who played to a standard expected for 90 minutes …...

    RIP - Danny Williams

    no ….craig was already there ….. 4 days after he arrived but I doubt Williams had any say in the matter …..

    Lucas - Goal Machine

    yeah all the talent …..we have a talented squad but how you harness it into a successful one is going to be a test for bruce ….

    Lucas - Goal Machine

    good player joao, …...the conundrum though is how do you get him into the team .and who do you partner him with . …….

    RIP - Danny Williams

    we all know what he was like for us as a manager but i'm sure he did his best and his time at Swindon & rovrum stands him in good stead when his managerial record is remembered …….

    Bruce on........FERNANDO

    .Abraham 64 championship games 45 goals …joao's record is t around 26 in 120 …...bruce will really go up in my estimation if he can pull off a straight swap deal with those two .

    Bruce on........FERNANDO

    I never said he was ……if you are going to play with target man(centre forward ) then fletch is the best we have,...….hooper is the best forward
  25. torryowl

    Bruce on........FERNANDO

    imo fletch is our best centre forward so maybe it's more a case of FF isn't the right partner for him …..
