  1. Have we got enough? The embargo thread

    I think we need to do what we haven’t done in a long time in the summer.... scout the lower leagues and minor European leagues and unearth 2 or 3 gems. If we can keep the key players for one more season and get a left back and some pace in the team then I think we will have a good crack at the play offs. You don’t need to spend big to compete, several clubs have proved that
  2. Next season

    Fair comment. I guess what I mean by this is if he gets a chance to get regular first team football next year for another club on less wages, will he take it or will he stay and be potentially 4th choice here behind Hooper, Forestieri and Joao? Again a hypothetical him being 4th choice but could be a likely outcome. i personally think we need to drastically lower the current wage bill and he would be one of the first ones I would be looking at...despite his great attitude at the club he’s not going to get better and let’s face it he’s hardly going To weigh in with 20 next term even if fully fit
  3. To be honest it’s a management fault that he’s not been edged out of the squad in a graceful manner. Nothing against him whatsoever I think on reflection when he does leave most people will remember him fondly.
  4. Next season

    Whilst I agree with everything you say here it just totally highlights how difficult it will be to get rid of Fletcher. I think we Just need to accept he will sit on his contract and be an expensively paid squad player next year. For me Nuhiu and Rhodes need to go aswell as Fletcher but in reality I would be delighted if 2 out of those 3 went.
  5. I agree.i find the criticism of him on here astounding. If he sends us down then yes he deserves it in the neck, but he will keep us up I’m convinced and he should be judged by Xmas next year. 2 wins in 22 brings blanket negativity and short term thinking. Let’s hold our nerve,stick together, get over the line and build for next August
  6. We Rely On Others

    By hook or by crook we will win a couple of games before the season is out, no science to it I just reckon our fixtures are ok and a few players coming back mean we will be a championship club next year. I reckon we might just lose to Sunderland and beat Wolves...that’s how it works with us right?
  7. I think I need to see a shrink as I’m quite positive about next season and willing to give Jos a full pre season to see where he’s at. Its been a disasterous season but that’s all it is....one season. we still have a talented squad and I think if we get lucky and manage to offload some of the high earners then we can start to reshape the squad. i have a feeling Jos (if he last that long) will have a functional, extremely organised and fit team ready to go from game 1 next season. I predict we will get some pride back next year
  8. Who is the best player at SWFC?

    Has to be hooper, intelligent scores goals and the one player I’m most looking forward to returning.
  9. Morgan Fox

    The thing with Fox is he is the closest reminder to how things were in the dark days. In the early 2000’s you would look at our team sheet before the match and know that 4 or 5 (at least) would be a waste of a shirt and he is just one of those players. Will never play for such a big club again.
  10. I am going to bloody say it... I think we will win. Nothing to back it up...literally nothing a deflected 30 yarder from a unicorn and a comical 6 yard scramble poked in by Peter Pan...and we cling on to a 2-1 win
  11. Talking of horrific games, what about Wimbledon at home in 2000-01 I think it was. 5-0 down at halftime. We made hartson look like Ronaldo
  12. Tomorrow's team is

    Thanks for posting. Time to lump on under 2.5 goals at the bookies!
  13. Dour and attritional.

    The thing is though if you translate Stuart gray type football with the talented squad we currently have then I personally think we have a great chance of finishing top 6 next year.
  14. Tomorrow

    We are crying out for good wing backs. It would be a perfect time to bring them in now, get used to the club and integrate in the squad before we hit the ground running next season.....hopefully

    Great draw! I cant imagine Swansea not beating Notts so it's on. I literally dont care about what carlos does or doesn't do now....my immediate thought was our players will be highly motivated and we are at home....perfect combination! we will give ourselves every chance of progression. If we do go out it will be due to lack of ability not lack of effort & determination.
