    All sorts of crap.
  1. iFollow

    I'm livid.
  2. As my name says...it's his fault I'm in this lot the likes of this crew.
  3. @Bark1062- glad you got that right in the end. Ivana Trump: Ivanka Trump: I wasn't judging, but hey, to each their own..
  4. This is exactly what we needed

    You know what would be a one-off out of the blue occurrence? Not finishing top six under Carvahal.
  5. First half tactics

    The same midfield that took 7 of 9 points last week? i can see an argument that he could have done something different against the pigs and their midfield, but starting jones, lee, and Bannan has been working just fine.
  6. First half tactics

    Tactics don't exist when players can't complete a simple pass and a normally solid defence and keeper put in a shocking performance. I know it's always Carlos hunting season around these parts, but this one is on the players.
  7. The Wilder Factor

    United had the 4th highest value in League One last season- Wilder is absolute genius. Wednesday had the 5th highest value in the Championship- Carlos is rubbish. I don't know much about Wilder, it looks like he did very well making chicken salad out of chicken bobbar at the lower levels, and no doubt they're off to a very good start this season. I'd be more inclined to rate him after a couple of years in a real league, with legit big boy clubs. I won't be stunned if he does decent things with the pigs, but he needs more than 8 games to prove it. Tomorrow will be a good test for him.
  8. With Sporting he tied and lost to Benfica and beat Porto (he was hired after the first Porto game had occurred). Benfica ran away with the league that year. With Besiktas he tied and lost to both Galatasaray and Fenerbahce. So so not great.
  9. Let's not forget that Carlos managed at both Sporting and Besiktas, both of which have very serious derby games. Yet I keep hearing its Wilder who will have his boys all fired up. I'm sure the Istanbul derby has nothing on Oxford-Swindon.
  10. Carlos Out!!!

    I think you can get a bit lucky over 46 games (look at Reading last season too). They had a great start when no one knew what they were about, then went pretty steadily downhill the rest of the year. I think GD is a pretty good estimator of quality over the course of a season, and their GD showed what they were really about. They got got lucky that Carlos chose to play the way he did and that Reading also wasn't that good. Wagner is a very good coach though, and I think they would have been better this season if they could have kept him and Mooy. i absolutely agree we should have won the playoffs last season and that's on Carlos. I've seen enough bright spots this year to hold off on calling for his head though. My line of demarcation will be September 24th, mid afternoon.
  11. Carlos Out!!!

    His team had a negative goal difference and didn't win a game in the playoffs. i get what you're on about and that's fine, but comparing one of the luckiest teams I've ever seen (who played some pretty dire football themselves at times) isn't a good example.
  12. The Sanity Club

    This is the first year of my 20+ years as a Wednesdayite I've been able to watch all the games. I used to "watch" games on twitter. I was listening via the internet to our 2012 season and sat alone in my kitchen weeping tears of joy when we thrashed Wycombe. I was terrified of the winding up orders and to think of never making it to Hillsborough. These last two years have been great.
  13. Team for Bolton

    I don't want Tom Lees anywhere near this game. He's as important as just about anyone on this team, especially with the depth at his position. I love a cup run and this is a very winnable fixture, but I'd play with 10 men before risking Lees.
