  1. He played against Albania 3 weeks ago: http://www.espn.com/soccer/commentary?gameId=510813

    The Sam Winnalll situation

    Wouldn't be the first time Forestieri copped the blame for another player having a go at him. Maybe Carlos had the same angle on it as half the bleeding refs in the Championship.

    The Modou Sougou Effect.

    Hard to believe you can’t remember him. Used to play in Portugal, wrong side of 30, always injured? Not too many players like that around.

    The Signing of Jordan Rhodes

    Now explain his entire career before and since.
  5. He played wide in a front 3 in Portugal. Carlos used him like that too at first, until that run of 1 win in 7 put an end to anything but 442.

    Surely bloody not!

    Got to be worth a couple of million at least. And once they've compensated us for taking Butterfield off their hands, then we can start negotiating over Winnall.

    Our medical team.
  8. Lots of parallels with Irvine's first half-season with us in 2010. That was the best points per game return we'd had in years too. Started well with a few wins on the bounce, would have been solidly mid-table if maintained over the whole season. Counts for nothing if you can't get the team to perform in vital, winnable games.

    Have we forgotten Gary hooper???

    Yeah, but we need a plan for the other 50%+ of the season.

    I was gutted when his legs went, about 18 months back.

    Are we going to finish in style?

    Final game of the season at Hillsborough, no pressure, decent crowd and the sun shining, is as confident as I ever feel watching Wednesday. Dour goalless draw nailed on then.
  13. Do you really think it's a good idea to drop to having 4 strikers on the books taken from our current selection, when not a single one of them has been both productive and available for 40+ games in a season, either ever or in years? We'd be seeing a lot more of the 5-5-0.
  14. Pointless and unnecessary? Without Bannan and Lee 100%, our midfield offered next to nothing and, as we've seen this season, still doesn't. Abdi was a creative, attacking midfielder, described throughout his career as a model professional with no interests outside playing football, plenty would argue Championship player of the season the year Watford went up, coming off the back of playing a full season in the Premier League, and still in what should have been the prime of his career. What we got couldn't be a bigger waste of space if Watford had sent us his granny instead, no argument there, but the Almen Abdi who played for Watford was exactly what we needed and, if he could find that form again, what we still need. Rhodes with that Abdi behind him could well have been a different picture too.
