    International Round-Up of sorts

    So by the laws of football he is now banned for Wednesday’s next 3 games

    Early 90’s Classic SWFC Videos

    I had the 93/94 video, which I used to watch whenever I needed cheering up a bit (little boys have feelings too kids). we made a slow start that season. And I think we played Norwich and in typical Wednesday style we went 3-0 up and ended up drawing 3-3. John helm said “victory was elusive as ever”. I also remember there was a strange interview with mark bright about his goal scoring, and he said “I write down the numbers 1-5 or something around the flat and tick them off as I go past”. I still have no frigging clue what he was on about.

    Team for Boro

    Sorry people probably don’t realise that any opinion that differs from your own is wrong. These types of threads will be entertaining when we all have to agree on the same line up. Though they are usually a waste of time anyway as Jos usually springs a surprise or two, so why anyone would get so annoyed by people’s choices is beyond me. But fair enough if others think it matters

    Team for Boro

    I won’t be disappointed if Joao starts, he took his two goals very well. But his overall play was fairly disappointing, namely being bullied out of the ball and losing possession a few times, against a weaker defence than Boro. I rate Fletcher very highly and feel he should start when fit. I also think Forestieri and Reach should start as they are our best players, who can create and score from very little, and Boro have recently lost to teams like Forest and Norwich who aren’t giants. Players like Pukki and Lolley have scored goals against them. And we still have tall players like Hector, Lees, Pudil, Fletcher etc to help at set pieces Personally i’d Start with Fletcher and bring Joao on after 60 minutes when his quick feet and extra pace can cause a tired defence problems

    Who's had the toughest start?

    A good barometer of success is comparing your fixtures/results to others, as you play different teams at different points in the season. For example the teams the pigs have also played so far.. Bristol City, Millwall, Hull and Villa and got 9 points. We’ve got 10 points from those games I think I’m right in saying in the next 12 games the pigs are still to play: West Brom, Leeds, Forest, Wednesday, Brentford, Derby, Stoke.  If they can get wins, and still be on top after playing these teams then fair play to them. But right now I would doubt they are good enough

    Premier league 2

    I’m definitely in favour of the championship getting more money and stop the parachute payments. I suppose the potential danger is if there’s a premier league 2, would it reduce the excitement and interest in getting to the premier league 1? Right now we all look to get into the playoffs as we chase that golden goose, but if that just becomes a fatter turkey than the one we’ve got, will people lose interest
  8. I thought Hooper had suffered a set back

    Boro Away form

    I wouldn’t say their attack was ordinary with Mr Britt Ass. and Danish international Braithwaite in the side. But I do agree the challenge seems no more difficult than the WBA one, and we showed for 85 minutes that we can get a result

    Premier League here we come

    Makes me smile when I read “we’re not good enough to finish in the top 6”, despite that it’s our position now and we’ve played 4 of the other 6 highest teams. The pigs still have 5 of the top 6 to play. Cardiff probably weren’t deemed good enough for promotion last season but they managed it. If we are still near the top 6 in January then maybe we can sign an improved right back on loan. Im optimistic at this stage anyway

    Impressing Jos

    Read that earlier, we have a proper boss in charge at the moment. Really pleased with how he’s managing players

    Bang Average League

    Cardiff finished 2nd and had madine in their team. They were 24th in the ranking of possession stats, and lost 10 times. When you watch our performances I get the impression there is more to come from the group, not that we are over achieving. If Jos can get the starting line ups/formations right, and we have more luck with no injuries, we can be successful this season

    Playoffs baby!!!!!

    I mentioned this yesterday that the next 12 games are more winnable than the previous games we’ve just had. Sort out the starting line up/formation and use more brains to close out games and we can be a top 6 side at Christmas too
