  1. I'm in awe of the blatant cheek of parry to try and sell this as good for the EFL. Immediately there are 2 EFL clubs who will be pushed out of the league structure to enable this yet its good for all 72 efl clubs? From a long term perspective the big 6 take control and this then enables a situation where its easy to control and close shop if wanted. Why not add a veto to the voting rights for the other pl clubs and an efl representative? If the Premier league truly belive in the structure of the English game then the should interact with it. I would like to see Parry
  2. Who would you play for the other half of the season when hutch is in the treatment room or suspended?
  3. Was there statement from the PFA advising their members not to agree a federal or freeze without their agreement? Sure I saw that somewhere just can't remember where.
  4. was the timing seen as a natural break with both being out of the team? Maybe not the best timining maybe not the right way to do it.
  5. I'd have to agree with this. The issue is not that they are injured now but that they are consistently missing large chunks of every season through injuries. How many times has Westwood for example pulled up in warm ups and missed the next 3 or 4 werks over the years. Are they the players that would make the difference who knows. Is Monk the right man man for the job not sure.
  6. I'm going 4 2 3 1 with da Cruz or windass trying to link up to Wickham
  7. Not only is there the question around officials being held accountable but what about the Blackburn players over reaction which would have potentially affected the refs decision
  8. No I said some people's bar was to avoid relegation
  9. Not setting the bar low at all. I look at it with half a season left automatic is 10 points off. If we go on a good run we can hit that. For me though changing the manager will not help that as a club we must get some stability prior to Christmas the fan base was raving about monk now he must be sacked. I'm happy for promotion either auto or thrpught he playoffs. We set the bar at the end of this season and must improve next. Year on year progress not lose one week.(dreadful performance included) and change everything. Constant change does not make for improvement
  10. Some people just love to moan and complain. The playoffs are realistic still. Start of the season people where just wanting the season to still be alive and us safe from relegation after the Bruce affair. Monks done well he needs to sort the inconsistency but give him time he's had less then 6 months and no transfer window
  11. That simply doesn't make sense. What's the agenda here that the chairman affects the performance of the players is rubbish. If he had spent nothing and we had an understrength team that was incapable of winning I could understand blaming the chairman.
  12. Yes we didn't turn up and who knows how the game would have gone with 11 Vs 11. The fact we was none existent as a team though doesn't excuse inept officials. We didn't deserve anything and after that performance in any other job the players and officials would be lucky to get paid never mind keep their jobs. There was a number of examples of extremely poor officiating including the "elbow" incident and the foul by nuhiu when he came on. My particular favourite was the you can't take a quick freekick as winalls putting his boot back on quickly followed by yes go quick whilst I give
  13. How far was the walk from the car park?
  14. From those options nuhiu real answer none of the above bring in some raw pace (Murphy seems to have lost the ability to run so no point trying him) Fletcher and nuhiu at least pose a different question to what team normally meet and is a good option away from home or when you want the ball to be held up. At home we need some one who can play on the shoulder of a big centre forward. Win all wants to come deep rather than do whats needed. Rhodes just doesn't cut it and both need moving on
  15. Absolute passenger today sat way to deep and didn't get hold of midfield
  16. Good luck to him he needs game time and not getting it. Up to some of the youngsters to step up as 4th choice is there anybody in the wings? Wasn't rice touted last year?
  17. 20 miles it may be but on the roads there it's another 30 or 40 minutes. Having spent the last few years driving an hour and half each way to work I can say it makes a big difference. His kids are in school in Lincoln etc so it could be something he considers
  18. Really like this appointment if it happens. My biggest concern is the fan base. We must give them time and not expect immediate returns and promotion this season. The Cowley's do things the right way and instill a culture. This may take 18 months. DC will give them time will the fanbase
  19. I'd go with this 2 from 3 or 4 if you consider ff for the wide left role. Reach's best work 1st half yesterday came when he went out wide right and murphy tucked in. 2nd half he played a good 10 or 15 yards further up field and closer to fletcher which pulled the whole team with him but much preffer bannan and lee as the main engine room with hutch holding
  20. I work that out at approx £5m upfront still a good sum and highest received by Wednesday I think. I can certainly see him making 30 appearances
  21. we would selling Joao and Rhodes leave us short upfront. Particularly if we continue to play 1 up top with reach\ harris\ fessi in behind. We would have Fletcher, Nuhui and Winnall competing for 1 spot. Maybe look to develop one of the younger players maybe Borukov. If you want to go two up from Fessi can play higher up. I take your point around the recruitment team being key but disagree we would be short.
  22. Is it about wanting this to happen or is it about being open to options. For me and it's not about Bullet it's about trying something different instead of joining clubs like Boro hiring the same merry go round managers for the next 10 years If I had to choose then Cowley would be my option
  23. My point is at least try something different Pulis, karanka, Holloway, monk all tried a number of times at different clubs all failed a number of times.
