  1. He is. although he's being phased out now. Also, he's not and never will be a defensive midfielder to answer a previous comment.
  2. I didn't quite mean it like that... just delighted it isn't Pulis..
  3. Good appointment I reckon. Thought he was excellent last season at Blues. Blues were hamstrung with tight budgets etc and he got their side to over-perform. They were favourites to be relegated in some quarters following his departure. Could have been worse...
  4. Well... I would hardly call Craig Dawson an asset. He was a centre half who played at right back, just because he could defend narrowly and was impressive at attacking the ball at set pieces. He was, and remains a bang average defender. The sole requirement for him was to pin a large diagonal ball into Saloman Rondon who was often, miles on his own. Evans (his best signing for us) left because of a clause in his contract for £2million. Rodriguez - vastly over-rated. Good money made from him though. The best asset we sold was Rondon. That being said, Pulis failed to use him appropriately. He was signed as a battering ram and when he was capable of so much more. But, if you're relying on James McClean to provide the neccesary service then maybe we were stuffed !
  5. He signed a bunch of plodders whose only ability was to lump it forward and get organised. Brilliant. He signed Nacer Chadli, Serge Gnabry, Callum McMannaman and then had no clue what to do with them. Then when he fvcked off, no manager could get a tune out of them because they were incapable of trying anything remotely expressive than defending your penalty area. And then comes to the disillusionment in the stands. The swathes of empty seats, the continued loss of revenue. The fans accepting the poo football because of some impressively boring 0-0s draws, and the fans who want him gone and better football. The outcome - anger, annoyance and frustration. You then turn to a club legend, whose hopefully out of their depth, just to try and unite the football club. Whilst trying to rebuild a football club. It doesn't work. Middlesbrough, like us last year, will soon realise.
  6. He's a dinosaur - and not very pleasant one either. His appointment might seem quite appealing until you're into about the 15th game of his reign and you line up with four centre halves & four defensive midfielders at home. And he'll leave behind a very one dimensional squad only capable of playing his god awful brand of football. Football is primarily a results based business, I understand that, but there is more to it than witnessing his soulless, turgid brand of football every week.
  7. This SAG are laughable. They and SYP must be the only organisations in the country that are incapable of dealing with a crowd. I think it is them that needs a look at themselves not SWFC. I find it hard, under any circumstance, to find one good reason as to why pushing 10,000 or more fans onto an extremely busy main road is more safer than allowing entry/access via the LL. I can only take the impression that they seem to be waiting for accidents to happen to allow them to justify this shoddy, ill-thought report they have approved. Surely, holding the away fans for 10 minutes to allow the surrounding areas to disperse is more safer than the current poo show they have created? (not that it was a problem before).
  8. They're a good "footballing side". Pretty in possession and all that. Any goal kick will be played short. Press them in their own half and watch a Jones' side collapse. 3-1 Wednesday. Mon the Owls !
  9. Again another limited footballer. He's currently with us. Given we paid £15mil for him we have to invest some time in him. He's not very good mind. Seems to have gone backwards from that wonder kid of a few years ago. He's on a separate coaching plan to the others.
  10. I thought he was going to be an excellent signing Signing a good player who had seemingly done well in the Premier League then realised I was referring to his twin brother.
  11. Apologies if not, but I thought they were looking at another loan? Might be wrong, but I'd certainly explore those Premier League academies.
  12. I did not hide on here regarding the deficiencies of our squad last season. Nor did I expect Premier League quality. I did expect a bit of presence and someone who could use his pace to get in behind defences, or at least be able to provide some decent crosses to Gayle and Rodriguez. He was extremely lightweight and a player who would shirk those 60/40 challenges. He did score a decent goal at QPR and scored from a few yards out at home against Forest. That aside, he, like Montero was a very poor signing. His performances were regularly outshone by Kyle Edwards - whom could not get into the side because of Murphy.
  13. I understand that - but I would state there are probably "better" options out there at more affordable prices. I would rather explore the youth set ups of the likes of Arsenal, Man United, Chelsea etc. Ryan Kent would be a much better signing and he's linked with a move to Leeds. I've seen it cited that Murphy has pace - indeed he does, but he is so lightweight it is irrelevant when he's knocked off the ball every time he has it. I cannot recall any redeeming features to his game that made me stand and take notice. It was a major source of annoyance that he featured so heavily for us - providing so very little - whereas our academy graduates were left to rot.
  14. Murphy is garbage. We had the miss-fortune of putting up with him last season. He has the heart & testicles the size of a pea. I'd rather you put faith in your academy then sign players on relatively good wages whom will offer nothing.
  15. That man should not be allowed within 100 yards of a football club. The height of his man-management skills is to bully an academy graduate infront of his team mates. Publicly called out by some of our players too as more or less being a whopper. Hes a joker.
