  1.                                               Adamson


    Chris Carr.          Ashley Westwood.      Guy Branston.      Beswetherick


    Mark Reynolds, Darren Purse, Michael Morrison all honourable mentions 



  2. If DC still wants to go on his boom or bust approach and this season is cancelled and we won the FFP case then we would have around 20million in room after posting a 2 million profit last season to invest in the squad.


    DC could literally chuck some cash at it again :ghoulguy::duntmatter:

  3. I think it boils down to having two big personalities in the dressing room. Hutch came through the ranks at Chelsea, nearly had to retire though injury he probably comes across as a ‚ÄúI don‚Äôt give a poo attitude‚ÄĚ ‚Äúrants and speaks their mind‚ÄĚ potentially undermining the manager...he needs a strong personality to manage him and keep him in line. Westwood is and has always been a bit petulant...again needs managing.


    End of the day, your best team is your best team whether you are playing Under 10s footie or professional football, and all the players know who is the best...it’s natural selection.


    Something kicked off after the Stoke game and we’ve not recovered since.


    Down to the manager to ‚Äúmanage‚ÄĚ the situation not bomb senior pros out of the squad imo.

    Dawson 5 - nothing he could do about the goal 

    Palmer 4 - not really in the game. Not a wing back

    Lees 4 - much improved performance from Barnsley. Our best defender 

    Iorfa 3 - looked out of place in the middle of the back 3. Surely him and lees should swap

    Borner 3 - Poor again

    FF 6 - Not a wing back but looked like our biggest threat first half and worked hard

    Bannan 4 - overun, outbattled, in midfield on his own against 3 again

    Lee 5 - neat and tidy and worked hard but can no longer play in a 2 

    Windas 4 - didn’t do enough 

    De Cruz 5 - worked hard, few good touches, no support

    Wickham 3 - awful again, lazy again



    On the wind up surely lol

    • Haha 1

  5. Dawson - 2

    FF playing LWB - 5 MOTM 

    Lees - 0 (should be a minus)

    Iorfa - 1

    Borner - 2

    Palmer - 2

    Lee- 4

    Bannan- 0

    Windass- 1

    Da Cruz- 3




    Harris- 2

    Nuhiu- 1

    Murphy- 2


    Very depressing 


    Monk doesn’t even deserve a score he’s that bad.

  6. Just now, theowlsman said:

    Has Forestieri become the latest player to tell the manager he doesn’t know what he’s doing? Is that it? Did he open his trap at half time?

    Bet he did tbh.


    Monk walking out after half time shaking his head, can’t face criticism even if it’s merited.


  7. That performance is 100% down to the management/coaching team.


    Ridiculous formation.


    A managers job is to man manage the players & egos in the squad. 


    Bring Westwood back, bring Hutchinson back. Play Iorfa and Borner together, drop Lees. Play FF in a front 3.


    Awful, I was all for giving him a chance but if Monk is too stubborn then we could end up getting relegated this season with a points deduction.

  9. Fox on a 2yr deal

    Fletcher 1yr (he will no doubt be looking for 2 as will his agent anything more than a year I would release he’s our top earner) 


    Rest of them get rid 


    Try and offload Rhodes on loan for the season covering his wages.

  10. Bannan is in shocking form, I’d stick him on the bench




    Palmer.           Iorfa.             Lees.           Odobajo


    Murphy.          Windass.        Hutch.        Reach 


                          Wickham.         FF

  11. Hopefully this summer we can refresh the squad...lots of gaps to fill in my opinion 





    ?????                Iorfa.             Borner.            ??????

    Palmer.              Lees.             ?????                Fox


                  Luongo.          ??????       Bannan

                   ??????          ??????


         ??????                   ??????              Reach

         ??????                   Rhodes.              Harris



  12. So we could pay circa £1 million in wages until the end of the season and then if we go up we pay £20million if we don’t we return back to the toon no hard feelings.


    DC has blown way more cash on rubbish over previous seasons than an educated chance / gamble of £1 million pounds of wages.


    Gayle scores goals in this division, pace, diving, whinging at the ref etc etc rather have him playing for us than against us in any of the other top 6 teams.
