    Murphy’s stats as a Championship right-winger really impressive.


    47 matches

    11 goals

    10 assists


    The only odd thing is having Reach who we assume will play 40/42 games, leaving Harris, Forestieri and Murphy to share the other wing?


    With the amount of games we have, Reach won’t always be at full fitness. We regularly have to play on a Saturday and then again on a Tuesday, so it helps to rotate. 


  2. Whilst he wouldn’t be close to my first choice (sounds obvious), I would much rather we went for an unknown who could turn out to be great, than a journeyman who we know is crap.


    That’s where my head is at (although I am terrified it’ll be Jos Part 2)

    What you have to realise is that we're essentially a small family run business, not amazon shipping out in excess of a million orders an hour. 


    Already realise that mate, even tiny businesses run by a couple people offer better value for delivery. That’s what you fail to realise

    I ordered the new home shirt online at about eight on Thursday evening and it's arrived in the post this morning.


    By anybody's standards, that's impressive; well played Wednesday.


    It seems our retail department are pulling out all the stops right now, so credit to them.


    Well they charge £6 for delivery so that’s what I’d expect really. Don’t think it’s a positive! They don’t offer any cheaper

    options or options to collect from anywhere apart from the megastore.


    I’m all for being positive about the club but not on this one! 

  5. If DC is choosing from the usual inspiring list of Pulis and Coleman - as much as it pains me to say it, Allardyce would be the most likely to take us up in my opinion.


    If we really are resigning ourself to crap football, then I would be confident he’d get is up. Can’t say I like the man but he has a better record than Pulis etc

  6. He was pretty inconsistent with us but I saw some potential.


    I like the idea of us signing younger and more athletic players.


    I don’t think we should judge him too much on last season. It can take even world class players a season to settle, he played a lot of it under a poor manager and he might look a better player with a different type of team around him.


    I get that he had a fair few awful games but then a lot of our players did.

    I love our old simple, iconic badge but I can’t see it making a come back any time soon. This new/old badge has grown on me, but it’s just not the same.


    I agree .


    I actually think it was quite on trend too and looked fairly modern. I don’t mind the new one but it just doesn’t seem as good to me. I doubt many people would recognise it outside of our fans

    Small is smaller than a medium, a medium is smaller than a large, a large is smaller than an XLarge, then you have a fat poopydoo size which fits anyone.


    Hopes this helps.


    Ah, thank you !

    What the EFL could do is to stop the relegated Prem clubs classing the parachute payments as " income" . That would make the championship a more level playing field .



    I think any decent accountant would have no problem juggling things around to get around a rule like that. 

  10. I thought he showed a lot of potential, but then his confidence slipped when Jos started playing him out of position.


    I remember Jos saying he’d protect the youngsters by not playing them in 2 consecutive games but that policy seemed to go out of the window.


    I think we’ll see a much improved Penney under Bruce. I think it’s also worth a shout that a young defender such as Penney would have benefited hugely from having an experienced keeper in Westwood behind him, which wasn’t the case.

  11. Reach has been great in a few games this season but really poor in a lot more.


    I think we’d get the best out of him with much better players around him. He isn’t good enough to drag us up but his goals and assists this season have been really valuable 

  12. I always assume with a new player like him, he isn’t in the squad because either his fitness means he can’t track back enough meaning we’re vulnerable at the back (plus the fans would quickly get on his back in this situation). 


    Or that he doesn’t understand our system quite well enough.


    In either situation, if he doesn’t play well, his confidence will be down and so it just makes sense to gradually get him playing.


    I think my post is essentially saying that I’m sure Bruce has his reasons.

  13. I don’t think us as  fans and the sole customer of the club should have to rely on this mis-information and contradictory statements. 


    It’s like our club is run by Trump at times.


    If it’s financial, tell us and we’ll get over it. If it’s because the manager doesn’t rate him, be clear with us and tell us.


    I think a bit of transparency would go a long way.

  14. If he could stay fit, Hooper would be one of the best strikers in the league. 


    His goal ratio is great and his link up play transforms our team and is outstanding for the Championship.


    But he just can’t stay fit and can’t be relied upon. I don’t know how much we’re paying him but it can’t be worth it for how little he plays.


    It’s really frustrating for us as fans but I can’t imagine how frustrating it must be for him, all that talent but constantly breaking down.

  15. I think it’s good for us to have a really outside shout at the play offs; it makes the season more exciting and should bring more people and money through the turnstiles.


    Realistically, it’s highly unlikely. I think we can win a lot of games before the end of the season, but I don’t think we are good enough to overcome a 9 point gap.

  16. I loved our old badge - I actually think it looks far more modern than the current one.


    If you look at the big clubs, their marketing departments have clearly had a say in making the badges more simplified and less historic than the old type. We seem to have gone in the opposite direction! 


    I don’t really think it’s appropriate for a foreign owner with no previous connections to the club to come in and change it unless the fans were unhappy. 


    Chansiri has done some great things for the club but I don’t think changing our kit or badge are among those. It makes him slightly more open of criticism when things start going wrong too.


    That said, if people are voting ours the third best, i’m probably completely wrong!
