  1. Talented and skillfull player with the ball at his feet,alas he had the heart of a mouse and was shocking when it came to tracking back and doing the mucky stuff
  2. Very good player on his day,good vision and used the ball very intelligently,also had a decent shot on him.Alas he struggled with consistency and much depended on which Eustace was playing. He was a vocal player out on the pitch,especially to officials,he once stuck two fingers up to the linesman as he was about to take a throw in (smack in front off me as it happened and I heard every word LOL!),as the lino had indicated a throw to Burnley,and was booked (the days before cards were shown) he often got booked for disent. As someone else mentioned perhaps his finest hour was at elland road in the cup replay of 1969,think he got MOM in just about every paper the following morning. Hed always craved a move away,dont think thats any big secret,and it took longer than hed wished,it finally came the season after the leeds cup game during the downsizing season under Danny Williams,alas it wasnt the dream hed hoped for and he was loaned out to Rotherham Utd during his 3rd season,and snapped up by Dooley for peanuts,but as others will testify,he came back half the player,and was released after a couple of seasons,and went to Peterborough Utd.
  3. DC wont sell,his old fellas worth a mint and hes one of the heirs to an absolute fortune. Monk was never the right man he was just available at the time and obviously filled in the online form and slushed it in interview,bet his agents gutted,he normally sends Monk the players!
  4. Rotherham was always a place we got something from normally a win,although I was there in the railway end when i think womble scored? We lost that day and christ it was painfull,we always seem to do well at Forest,Ive forest family and they dread us coming over as its normally their turn to buy the beers,west brom and wolves,alas we cant seem to beat wolves at home,infact the midlands as a whole has been a decent hunting ground,Derby apart. In the NW,Oldham,Blackburn on occasion,in London West ham and the odd cracker at spurs. So its Rotherham for me,only seen us lose the once,feels like twice when emly hughes and co were jumping into the penalty box from 10 yards out!
  5. Not heard or seen anything anywhere to suggest Rowett was interviewed or applied,maybe he knew something we don't but whatever hes a solid top 10 manager at this level,just yet to nail that promotion that would enhance his credentials. His time at Stoke,from what you read from stokes fans,he was hampered by some of the players already at the club,pretty similar in many ways to US,so possibly that shaped his thinking when it came to our vacancy.
  6. I just see him as a raw kid trying too hard to impress,too hard at times,the lad just needs to play his natural game and relax a touch and the natural qualities will take over. Hes a kid and hes still learning
  7. It was around 250K,we bid in the region of 1.5M for Hourihane & Winnall,but Villa had asked to be alerted if any bid for Hourihane came in and matched Barnsleys asking price the same day we lodged an offer,we didnt get a chance to lodge a 2nd bid,the deal was done,so we lodged a derisory offer for Winnall and he chose us over the other offers,one of which was leeds
  8. Think Im inclined to agree.It never clicked for him here,he was always down the pecking order,with so much quality ahead of him,he had to hit the ground running straight away,hed have been far better off staying with the inbreds
  9. Lets be reyt here hes shows more in 20 minutes than Wickham has in his entire loan spell this season,but his detractors will never accept that whatever he does here
  10. We need to move from Hillsborough,whenever you put it in google all you get is the stadium disaster,about 50 odd pages,or change the name to Owlerton,as all the old uns have always called it.
  11. I would love this to be the end of the gravy train,agents and hangers on. The wealth thats in football should have ALL been invested in the fans and stadiums,state of the art across all 4 divisions,with facilties that left nothing to be desired,with players payed handsomley,but no more than those that save our lives,the doctors,and a cieling put on wages to discourage wealthy owners. Hopefully we havent missed the boat,and the covid19 can salvage something for the fans,lets have the multi millions spent on us for a change,bring in a wage cap,and make facilities safe,comfortable and uptodate for EVERY supporter of EVERY club across the UK and put the fans first!
  12. If clubs cant put fans in stadiums before august,I can see a few championship clubs splattered on the road,and a lot of League 2 and 3 gone,and a hell of a lot of footballers in the jobcentre. Football needs to wake up,many walks of life are putting themselves at risk for a pittance,some are paying with their lives
  13. If contracts expire in June and players leave,I cant see how sides can be expected to finish off the season,has to be the same squad surely,at the same strength,you cant continue the same season with a changed squad as the transfer window closed in January 2020 and a new window for transfers cant open untill the last season is boxed off
  14. Players are payed to play football,by law thats not possible in this climate. Revenue streams for clubs are severly diminished while theres no match day revenue,which goes a long way to meeting player incomes. Player contracts need to be frozen,back to the date football stopped,and then re engaged once football restarts to complete competitions. I find it hard to justify paying a player his full salary while hes not expected to earn his living,some common sense needs to be applied here,before clubs begin to go bankrupt.The EFL,FA and UEFA should have sorted this out when football was closed down and issued guidance,if clubs start to go to the wall whose going to employ the players?
  15. Yellow umbro with the pale blue shorts has always been my favorite away strip
