  1. He was a top player and, even though it's a rarity for this club, he played his best football for us. Aside from the screamer at Bramall Lane, the one just after half time when we lost 3-2 at the Lane was a quality strike
  2. Just an amazing footballer and the main reason we played that great football under Carlos in the first season. It was his speed of thought that made him a class above. Masterstroke by Gray to move him into midfield, and definitely my favourite player for a long time. He is the perfect example of the fact that you shouldn't give up on players too early. He cam from Oldham on a free, didn't get a look in at right back under Jones, and then becomes probably our most complete midfield player in many a year
  3. I'd disagree with the third line but, apart from that, this is absolutely spot on
  4. Wouldn't worry, I cant remember it either
  5. Can just see the promotion party...Vorhees a jolly good fellow...
  6. The lineups these days get me about as excited as when Graeme Lee once played up front at Hillsborough
  7. I've got us vs Wycombe...both teams to score in both halves...
  8. I don't think he did bottle it during the normal season. We actually came closer to getting promoted that second season than the first but, for some reason, he did make a mistake in the play offs. The football wasn't was as pleasing on the eye, but it was more effective across a season. How many good footballing teams have failed across a season compared to their more organised and effective rivals (Brentford last season being a perfect example). If you had the players that Carlos wanted to play, and they didn't succumb to injuries to the extent that they did, we'd have probably got promoted.
  9. Probably be unpopular, but I'd definitely have him back. The football even towards the end was still miles better than anything we get served up now. Even with a more pragmatic approach in the second season we were more successful points-wise than the first. I don't get the 'we would have been promoted playing the style of the first season' argument. Top two in the second season were still way ahead of us. He knew we were too open in the first season. It worked at home but we dropped too many points away. He did make a mistake after Fletcher scores against Huddersfield, but it's about fine mar
  10. This. The atmosphere would be absolutely toxic at the moment with fans in the ground
