    #QPR 4 - 2 #SWFC - OMDT

    This is the more positive formation people have been asking for. He can't win. Players have to take responsibility.

    Thank You Dejphon Chansiri

    You're a joker. DC has been excellent for this club or have you forgotten the past 2 seasons. My god, some of our fans have short memories.
  3. Attack wins you matches, defence wins you championships.

    Is it done ?

    FFS - I thought you would know the finer details Neil.

    Should have been a penalty as it denied a certain goal, but I wouldn't have expected a sending off because I don't believe it was intentional.

    August Points Tally

    Apologies. 13 points.

    We're on our way

    I think people forget that we are a part of the club, and therefore it's reasonable for us to sing 'on our way back'.
  8. So, we have a fairly difficult start to the season ahead of us in August. How do you think we'll do what, and what points tally would you be happy with? Aston Villa - 1 Norwich - 1 Burton - 3 Leeds - 3 Brentford - 3 I'd definitely be happy with 11 out of 15. If we can make it 14, even better. Sorry if there is a similar thread to this already.

    Rival watch

    Stuart Gray doing a great job with Fulham on the defensive side.
  10. Lots of good business going on. Hopefully we can get those 4/5 new players Carlos wants, so we can push on towards automatic promotion.

    Jedinak would be an amazing signing at this level. Strong, hard working, good technique, and a leader. Oh, and that beard!!! ❤ Can't see him dropping to championship though.

    Link to tweet please, because that post makes no sense.

    OFFICIAL - Abdi and Pudil Sign

    And breath. Quality signings.

    Abdi from Watford?

    I am not disputing that there are failings with the system, and agree that it is a farce that it was allowed to commence in the form it did, let alone continue. The issue we have is that it is a mandatory requirement of being a part of the EEA. Most of the Brexit team wanted to close the borders inwards, but keep them open for Brits to move the EU, and free trade. Unfortunately, you cannot cherry pick; the EU position is, 'you want free trade, you need to have freedom of movement / labour'. They will not move from that fundamental principle. Trade does rule the roost in capitalist societies; the issue the UK has is that it is not negotiating with capitalists, it's negotiating with socialists that put the rights of its citizens above the dollar/euro/pound. Anyway, in a more positive sense - it means we can buy Abdi without any concerns re work permits.

    Whilst Switzerland is not part of the EU, it is part of the European Economic Area (EEA). To be a part of the EEA, one of the stipulations is that they must sign up to freedom of movement/labour. So in essence, any EU citizen can work in Switzerland, and any Swiss citizen can work in the EU. This is why the whole immigration debate re Brexit is a farce if the UK wishes to maintain a free trade relationship with EU.
