  1. Was New Years Eve in the 2011/2012 promotion season iirc, Megson was manager at this point and we won 2-0 with goals from Marshall and Batth (I Think)
  2. I remember the same happening on the last day of the 2002/2003 season when Ian Holloway brought QPR to Hillsborough and they won 3-1 to seal promotion to the Championship. QPR brought about 7000 that day top and bottom of Lep as well as the corner, think it was Kevin Gallen who scored early on and there was about 5 QPR fans a few rows above me who all jumped up and celebrated. It was a like a steam train from top of North as a few took a disliking ran down and gave them a ‘Seeing Too’ bust noses galore. Was only a young lad at the time about 7 I think and I remember it upsetting me quite a bit.
  3. I forgot to mention in my post that the signing of Rhodes didn’t help him. If JR didn’t sign we might have seen more of SW and maybe he’d had thrived more. Who knows? My original post can apply to JR as well to be fair.
  4. It’s now or never for him as far as his SWFC career is concerned. Everyime a new manager has come in he’s not seemed to be in favour, some will say a pattern has occurred and it’s his attitude etc. When he first came in under Carlos from the Dingles he’d scored 11 in 22 in the champ not a bad record at all. Did well on his debut against Hudds scored his first against Brum on Friday night on sky but after that never seemed to get a look in and was left out of the 16 quite a lot which at the time i thought was quite strange. Started last game of season against Fulham in the 2015/2016 season when we made loads of changes and scored. Crying out for a goal against Hudds in play offs In ET Nuhiu comes on instead. Dont get me wrong I’ve seen him since and his perfomances haven’t been great at all and i understand why he hasn’t been in the team but I believe he can score goals and maybe he’s a confidence player, just needs an arm around him like Rowett did at Derby and he scored goals. Maybe Garry can be that man?
  5. What's Pardew doing at the match? He'll be odds on in 10 mins on SkyBet
  6. Never an easy place to go and they’ve not had a bad start, good opening day win against PNE at home and a very good away point yesterday at WBA. Will probably be our toughest test to date this season but with the pace we’ve got out wide I think we’re more than capable of beating them especially on the counter. For me Keiren Westwood comes back in next week, Cameron Dawson did okay yesterday but his distribution was a bit iffy at times yesterday and as most have said Keiren will organise the defence and constantly be in their ear. The defence has to remain the same as does the front 3, the midfield is where changes may be made. Great to have an abundance of options for the first time in a while. I’d be tempted to have Luongo and Hutch as a 2 with Lee in front. Suddenly we have an extremely strong bench something we haven’t had in a few seasons.
  7. Apparently we’ve approached him and he’s turned it down, story to break shortly.
  8. Just seen he’s on £40K a week and suffered from hamstring injuries since he’s been at Villa. Maybe not
  9. Not sure if he’s been mentioned already and he’s probably the wrong side of 20 in terms of the age range we need to be looking at after previous seasons but what about Henri Lansbury? Surely surplus to requirements at Villa and would be available for a fairly modest fee £1.5M-£2M. (That’s if we have any money to spend at all)
  10. Also signed from Scunthorpe by Brian Laws, not Scottish and never played in Scotland
  11. You can hardly say he got the service in that game can you, we created next to nothing
  12. Jordan Hugill available at West Ham, scored a decent amount for Preston that led to his move to the premier league but never really got a chance. See he made 37 appearances for Boro on loan last season which doesn’t look great on paper. Bruce could get him firing again in this league but I’m aware we’re top heavy on the striking department and he’s likely to command a fee albeit WHU are prepared to take a loss and he’s willing to take a wage cut. Was he a one season wonder at Preston I’m not sure
