  1. So whose looking forward to watching us play some of these footballing behemoths? Pretty sure we’ve never met Fleetwood in the league and certainly not Accrington in recent history. I’d be happy to get Sunderland out of the division via the playoffs. Leaves a few more fallen bigger clubs but no outstanding sides if we can retain a few of our better players and recruit well. AFC Wimbledon Accrington Stanley Bolton Wanderers Burton Albion Cambridge United Charlton Athletic Cheltenham Town Crewe Alexandra Doncaster Rovers Fleetwood Town Gillingham Ipswich Town MK Dons Plymouth Argyle Portsmouth Rotherham United Sheffield Wednesday Shrewsbury Town Wigan Athletic Wycombe Wanderers PLUS THREE FROM: (one will go up) Oxford United Sunderland Lincoln City Blackpool
  2. I like many I’d guess don’t believe we have a hope of survival but consider this. Rotherham still patchy, Derby been on an awful run. Wednesday need from the next four games to win two more than Derby. We could win two and they win zero then go to the final game at Derby God knows what Rotherham will do but no shots on target tonight, they could collapse. on the other hand we could be down after the next two weeks. What do I know
  3. If it’s any help you’re many many times more likely to get a blood clot from catching the virus than from any of the vaccines. 1 in 20 people hospitalised with covid develop blood clots. 1 in 100 people diagnosed with covid develop a blood clot. Compare the 1 in 20 figure above with 1 in around a million people develop a blood clot after taking first dose of certain vaccines. So far every one who has developed a clot after taking AstraZeneca or In the states Johnson and Johnson has been female, under 49 and each one was after first dose suggesting rare allergies. This does not follow for people with clots after covid. Clots can be life threatening however small ones can go away on their own. As a health professional my choice was vaccination whose risk bears no relation with that if covid infection (regarding clots). All the best for a speedy recovery Darren.
  4. I think the question is how have the defence allowed the Hudds player in behind them
  5. After Birmingham show some balls and come from behind to win today with two late goals we find ourselves six points adrift of safety with a worse goal difference. Yes we have a game in hand but seeing as that’s Swansea and they’re on a losing streak you can guarantee it’s a banker to lose.
  6. Except the pass to Harris who crossed for the winning goal. Enough of a contribution I’d say
  7. Not a manager I’d want if we were in the Premiership (not gonna happen so not an issue). POSITIVES His teams are not boring to watch. He likes to recruit pacy young attacking players. Hes got a good pedigree in picking up talent from lower divisions. He’s never had a decent budget so has an eye for bargains. He didn’t take Wigan down. They’d have finished mid table without the deduction. Hes a northerner NEGATIVES Hes a scouser He doesn’t get on with Windass Hes probably too gobby for DC Any meeting with Chansiri will need two interpreters.
  8. Lees needs to be loved. If the manager doesn’t like him (eg Monk) his standard drops.
  9. Owls sack Pulis PSG sack Tuchel coincidence, I think not
  10. Calendar year league games Total 2020 only W7 D11 L23 41 games 123 possible points 32 actual points Not much left to say
  11. Not played a game in virtually a year. Gonna take a lot of fitness training
  12. Absolutely. I really don’t know why there was such an underwhelming feeling on this forum about signing him permanently. He’s a different type of player to anything we have and he’s very capable of playing the number 10 position. His movement off the ball is really clever and he’s excellent on the ball. Methinks he’s a confidence player who just needs to feel wanted to thrive. Paul Cook clearly didn’t want him at Wigan but that’s just our gain. Right age, right attitude just need the right partner. BTW I was also happy with the Kachunga signing. Lost his way at Hudds but so did Bannan at Palace. Sometimes you just need a new club and a different challenge. Optimistic.
  13. Not unexpected that playing without strikers constituted zero goals. Reach is not a striking option under any circumstances but he needs to get his mojo back somehow. Looked completely different side with Brown supporting a front two. Windass looks a shoe in for number 10 / support striker role with excellent movement. Just need a number nine now. Rhodes did nothing after coming on and I fear another season if high wages for no goals from him. Positives for me were Penney (albeit vs L2 opposition). His forward play has always been a positive but a better side will test his defensive capabilities more. Brown looks a find but must be played in that advanced midfield role with Bannan sitting behind and Luongo as defensive mid unless we sign someone else for that role. Iorfa looked comfortable and Harris would have hd at least one assist had there been. Striker on the pitch when he put that lovely cross straight cross the box. little more to say on the others. Not massively challenged and all working without striking options until closing stages
