  1. I don't know who our fans think we are, we're an average, lower mid Championship side He's a decent appointment considering our position There was no way we were going to get the likes of Pearson and Howe Pulis is the best we could have hoped for and will keep us up. I for one am looking forward to a big horrible Sheffield Wednesday and rival fans coming on here claiming we're roughing up their players Bring it on
  2. I honestly couldn't care less about style of play as long as we win football matches which is something Pulis is used to doing, he's done well at most of the clubs he's been at. Either got them promoted or taken them within a whisker. He's very similar to Megson in style and I seem to recall the majority on here were excited that he had built a big horrible side including the likes of Rob Jones and Chris O'Grady. It was a pleasure to see us bully teams and our players putting themselves about and rival fans coming on here complaining about us roughing up their players. It's all well and good g
  3. People slating Pulis, no matter how defence minded he is let's be honest we can't score any less goals then we did under Monk 1 goal from open play in our last 10 matches wasn't it? I'm happy with Pulis if it turns out it is him. Experienced manager in the Prem and even led Stoke to Europe during his time there. He'll keep us up no trouble and then the club can re evaluate at the end of the season
  4. Thank god The Luton, Rotherham and Wycombe defeats without even scoring a goal was frankly unacceptable Had to go Hopefully Paul Cook comes in, has a decent track record
  5. It's impossible to dislike the bloke because you can see he does care about the club deep down and to be honest I agree with him on many points. He has made mistakes and he does come across as stubborn but I do think our fans overreact at times. The sale of the stadium for one. He does contradict himself though saying we are not as big a club as we think yet expects our fans to pay Premier League prices and that we are aiming for promotion and then says our players aren't good enough. He has invested millions and almost took us back to the promised land so he does deserve some respect. He's al
  6. Cheers for the heads up lads, another one I shall be skipping along with the Bircham one Currently in the middle of the Ronnie Moore one, enjoying it so far
  7. Yes he spoke very well of us. I remember when we plucked him out of non league and gave him his break. His career could have turned out very differently had we not taken a punt on him but he went on to have a very good career
  8. I still think it was a good window and certainly better than what we could have expected given the -12 Injuries have taken it's toll as we don't have the biggest squad even when everyone is fit Not signing an experienced GK was alarming as when you're already facing an uphill struggle you need experienced heads. If Monk doesn't rate Westwood then fair enough but bring someone else in
  9. Doubt it mate, in League One it was a factor but in the Championship there are plenty of clubs of a similar size so don't see that being the case
  10. Completly agree mate We're no worse than other clubs when it comes to turning on players. I would say our fans are very supportive considering what we have to put up with. There will always be scapegoats at every club and we're no different
  11. Obviously booing and shouting insults for 90 minutes won't help the team but even without the fans there isn't any improvement on the pitch. I would have expected the team to play more freely and at least test a side like Luton on our own patch
  12. Over the years ex players/managers and even our own fans have claimed the reason our home form is so poor is because there is a fear factor around Hillsborough when it isn't going our way and our fans are quick to jump on the players' backs instead of getting behind them Our four home matches so far in the league this season have yielded just 2 points and 2 goals in our favour So this myth of blaming the fanbase is a load of tosh and has firmly been put to bed. The fact is the manager and the majority of our squad aren't good enough and it has nothing to do with what go
  13. On the Wilbraham one currently, a brilliant insight on the managers he's played under. Some great Martin Allen stories. Modern football is sadly lacking in characters like Allen, Warnock etc. Now it's all high tech, head pieces and tablets on the bench
  14. Half an hour into the Wilbraham podcast. A good watch so far definitely recommend it. Some great stories from when Carlton Palmer was player-manager at Stockport Something that caught my attention is that when Dave Jones left Stockport in 1998 he was replaced by Gary Megson. Strange to think that all those years later the reverse happened at Wednesday when Mandaric was our chairman. Swings and roundabouts and all that
  15. Completly agree mate I don't see the need either. The stories are great without them having to add a swear word in there every 5 seconds
  16. Halfway through the Grant Holt podcast After what i've read on here i'll give the Bircham one a miss. I'm going to give the Aaron Wilbraham one a watch next as he's been around a fair bit so will probably have tons of stories to tell and I prefer hearing about players who have played in the lower leagues
  17. That is a cracking window mate
  18. I wrote Paterson but phone changed it to a double t
  19. We can't complain let's be honest. Given the circumstances and the points deduction recruitment has been far better than we could have expected. The likes of Windass and Patterson will turn out to be key signings in my opinion this season and in the future. Kachunga is proven at this level and on a free is decent business. Loan signings again are proven performers in the Championship. Flint has a wealth of experience and chips in at the other end and Derby fans are gutted they've loaned us Marriott which speaks volumes and Izzy Brown is quality player and is going to be key this season
  20. If it's between keeping Iorfa or signing Hector as his replacment i'd rather we kept Iorfa to be honest Seems likely he'll be leaving though if the bid we've made turns out to be true
  21. Marriott - Yes Gregory - No Both are a downgrade on Zohore but Marriott is still only 26 and he'd be a decent addition. To be fair to DC and the club everyone is in the same boat in the Championship. Not many stand out signings during the window. Mostly loans until the end of the season so given our current position we can't expect much
  22. I do think you're right mate, it is to do with age definitely. My biggest pet hate is social media as we know where players go on holiday, the names and ages of their kids, what cars they drive, who they hang out with etc.
  23. Oh and I forgot about Dean Windass, which for me is the best one up to now. Some of his stories had me in stitches especially the Savage one at the end
  24. Only found out about the podcast this week but find myself addicted. Between yesterday and today I have watched Paddy, Kirkland and Leon Knight (for anyone who hasn't watched the Knight one it isn't hard to see why his career went downhill. A complete car crash)
  25. Cheers mate Can't believe how old Parkin looks. Would never have guessed it was him in a millions years. Seems like a top lad though
