  1. Theres better sides than Huddersfield in League one, looks like were in for a tough ride, weve nothing uptop and pose no goal threat, better hope the defence is as good as some people think it is
  2. Without Loovens to hold his hand, Lees just looks standard, again its symptomatic from the recruitment room,that they never identified a suitable improvement on him and many others
  3. If the recruitment mob have run the rule over BPF and deemed him good enough then heaven help us. We need to ditch Steve Bruces stooges and build a stats savvy recruitment tank of our own
  4. Priority booster points to guarantee admission on sale soon, grand a point
  5. So in the three years since JH left we havent been able to discover a better RB. That really doesnt inspire me with confidence in our recruitment policy.
  6. Hannover finished last season 3 places above the drop zone, must be worth a punt to go down this with JB at the back.
  7. Replacing him with worse wouldnt be that easy either, hes right up there for me in the worst CBs category, he was awful, king of ball watchers and over to you claude when it came to taking responsibility
  8. Hes played in a back 3 quite a lot at his last club
  9. He was a very good player in a very decent side,an integral part, Alas that decent side is no longer, time has moved on and the club has gone in a totally different direction to the one he thrived in.
  10. Big John for me, if he got on the end of a cross he was deadly
  11. Ive not seen the 75% in what i read only this : Relegated clubs The rules apply to all clubs and there is no moratorium for clubs relegated from the Championship. However, Transitional Arrangements are in place whereby clubs are allowed to exclude the wage costs of all players that the club signed pre September of the relegation season, if they were signed on contracts in excess of 3 seasons.
  12. Southgate has got England to the last four of each of his last two tournaments, thats a huge improvement on every manager in the last 55 years. If he does the same in his next two, the laws of averages say hel win one. Thats a HUGE step forward for the national side,and massive step in the right direction
  13. We cant afford Bannan in this division he signed his contract after the september cut off for wage inclusion in the accounts, and in league one you have to submit a monthly statement of turnover to wages which cant exceed 60%
  14. Jordan Rhodes was world class at this level for udders, time its an absolute killer
  15. FFP just doesnt fit its purpose, how can you have one set of clubs with a cash injection of 60M and assets to sell that raise the bar and then limit the rest of the division to 39M over 3 seasons? Its a recipe for a two tier premier league in all but name.
  16. His goals kept us up under luhukay and would have done the same last season, hed be a real asset in the league we now find ourselves in as a result of the soft decision to let him leave!
  17. Players will get a shock when this months pay slip has HOTEL 500K in the deductions column
  18. The EFL needs to grow some balls and bare its teeth, stop admitting relegated sides on huge prem pay offs and grow its own competition, end promotion, market its own product and have faith in its success,run a rival competition, Ensure the likes of Wycombe, Blackpool and Fleetwood/Morecambe or Peterborough get promoted next season to their competition, accept the fallers and say, UP YOURS Premier league, were going it alone, enjoy! Sky wont pay millions for liverpool v morecambe every week.
  19. Footballs is my 2nd fav sport, cricket took over for me around the mid 90s,It was always neck n neck playing them both along with rugby union in my school days, but the passion for football fell away once fences and pens came along, I felt more like a caged animal than a supporter, crammed into a corner behind a floodlight if you were lucky, some grounds you could hardly see the pitch! 300 mile round trip to have to listen to what youd missed on the radio back home, what a joke. it just got worse with the premier league, stupid transfer fees, outrageous wages, club kits changing every season, over inflated entry fees, and players paid more in a week than harley street doctors earned in a year, fa cup games watched by empty stadiums, kick off times while your eating your breakfast or getting your legover, 3pm saturday afternoon thats kick off time not 8pm on a tuesday evening. All that money sloshing about in football, and we still sit behind a a metal post,or a comms box or in some far corner of some away end where you see 30% of what you paid for, watching football clubs rack up billions in debt yet still trade as solvent because they generate huge tax dollars..........if thats not corruption I dont know what corruption is! How about lowering the frigging wages to a maximum of 1M a year and sploshing the rest on the people that attend,theres a novelty.
  20. Wonder how much compo theyve got for their last two managers being poached.
  21. If wed been really switched on in the recruitment area, wed have pocketed the 12M for FF, signed Benrahma, got the best out of him into the bargain and stuck another 30M in the coffers, infact we could have saved the 5M we wasted on Reach and just signed Benrahma anyhow. Best signing DC could make is some poo hot sports stats analysts
  22. wishfull thinking, this is chansiri were talking about, not some clued up smart arse that thinks ahead, Barrys his best mate, rats out all his teamates weanesses
