  1. Great player in this division - great goal scorer and by all accounts has been an excellent bloke with the work he has done with our foundation. No surprise to see his injury record when you consider the amount of times he's booted around the football pitch. Would love to have him back but not at £55k a week. And certainly not at £16million.
  2. Haven't Derby now recorded a profit by selling their ground? I am not sure whether that is clever accounting or breaking the rules. Personally - I am not a fan of football clubs not owning their home - I do not subscribe to the lease idea. In that case, I would be considering that as a rules break. I think there has to be some clear guidance across the board about what is allowed - and what contributes a breaking of the rules. I think it would be a dangerous road to go down if clubs continued to sell their home assets purely to get them infront of FFP.
  3. Seems a classic case of Gibson throwing his toys out the pram because he blew his chance of promotion when appointing that dinosaur. If clubs have broken the rules however then their should be punishments accordingly. I think this boils down to the problem though - because the punishments appear to be so weak and pathetic that chairman across the country will be willing to speculate to accumulate and hope that promotion pays off, knowing they have the luxuries of the Premier League to pay any resulting fines. The whole concept is ridiculously confusing from the outset - and I am not sure it can be fair play when there are several clubs in the division whom will be feeding off parachute payments. The simple concept is clear: Get rid of financial fair play. Get rid of parachute payments. Let clubs spend exactly what they want. Should clubs then run into financial difficulty at a later date, then that is there own fault and they should live by those decisions.
  4. A very good footballer and a fantastic bloke to boot. I was gutted for him that injury ruled him out of Euro 2016 as he deserve that opportunity on the greatest level. He has been a fantastic signing for us and his dedication over the last 13 years has been admirable. It is disappointing however to see how much his age has caught up with him in recent months as he should really leave The Hawthorns as a modern day hero.
  5. Excellent tonight that shoulder to shoulder where he sent Billy Sharp into Rotherham was superb
  6. I hope we stuff them. Then I hope Wednesday make it a blue and white double.
  7. They're a strange breed at Rotherham I went some weeks ago and we was drinking in a Weatherspoons in town. I'd never met such a strange bunch with such a burning hatred.
  8. It was bad enough putting up with him at the Hawthorns I can't possibly settle for it at Hillsborough aswell The bloke is **** of massive proportions
  9. Liking the look of the line-up Expecting a few goals. Desmond Tutu
  10. If I was in Chansiri's shoes then I'd be going for Dean Smith Its an appointment which doesn't rock the boat, will have a far more attractive brand of football and will not require a major player overhaul. I think Smith would fit the likes of Bannan, Wallace, Forestieri (when fit) and Hooper. Dare I say it - I think Smith would get more from this squad than Carvalhal has managed.
  11. Size of the squad isn't a massive issue - the make up of it is I cannot believe that for all the millions that has been spent that the wide and central midfield issues have not been addressed. There's a distinct lack of pace within the squad and furthermore its a powder puff midfield. The squad is far too samey - some nice pretty fancy players and that is it. Recruitment just for the sake of it.
  12. Mate, give it a rest for christ sake. Its boring
  13. Well I have to pay for travel to Sheffield as well you know..
  14. It must have been whilst you were kissing me...
  15. I'm just thankful I never paid up to 80 quid to come and watch it!
  16. Attitude was the problem. It was appalling. Slow, lazy and almost content to be second best. The abysmal defending and sloppiness in possession stems through the above.
  17. I feel for the bloke Must be torture to come onto the pitch and have to control the ball with your head. On reflection - that money could and should have been utilised elsewhere.
  18. The second goal is up there with some of the worst defending I have witnessed. It was amateur - it was lazy and it was a good indicator of the sides attitude to that game.
  19. A good post from Dave as per. Think the picture is painted on the dug out which highlights the job Carlos is doing at the moment. One was a manager who has managed to squeeze the most from the limited resources available to him and the other who is making an unbalanced, dysfunctional boring side out of the riches that have been provided to him. For the investment provided - Carlos is not doing enough - and whenever I come and watch you, or whatever I read, or pay to view, I cannot see any direction as to where this club is going or how things are going to improve. Big test ahead of him, which I think he will fail.
  20. I've brought my ticket. Good to make a return to Hillsborough. Not been able to get up as much as I'd like this season for a variety of reasons. But I'm back for Saturday. On the Kop too. Hoping for a good atmosphere, a bloody good performance and more importantly three points. Up the Owls.
  21. I get what you mean. I was up for the game against Ipswich (which was terrible). I'd said to Eaton that it was all too samey, one paced and predictable. Those are the games where he excels because he'll try to do different things. He'll run at full backs, he'll come and join in with the forward and he'll win an abundance of set pieces
  22. Chelsea last season? Had a superb game that day - unfortunately we never saw him again
  23. I don't think I'd seen such a complete performance from a midfielder The two centre halves must love him. Infact, in all of my trips following the Wednesday, I don't think I've seen him have a bad game. Class act. Wrap him up in cotton wool.
