  1. Just been released which I think means he's on nowt as it stands
  2. It's because people have this obsession with what a player potentially could do over what they actually do do in reality. (I know, I said 'do do')
  3. These days I ask how he gets round to talking about football
  4. Haha I read a tweet that said 'the difference' between the two sides on Monday was that one roared their team on all night whilst the other held a lights show. So there you go. If you'd left your ruddy phone in your pocket we'd all be planning a trip to Wembley right now
  5. You've definitely found one thing that ALL owls fans love though. A good old fashioned slag the fans off thread on owlstalk
  6. I have fine picture but some stuttering audio issues.
  7. No matter what, losing is obviously never positive, but if i put myself in Sunderland's shoes I'd be feeling pretty nervous coming up to Monday night. I wouldn't be feeling massively confident with a 1-0 scoreline in front of a packed out Hillsborough. If either side scores early I expect that team to go on and win the tie
  8. The awful decision are infuriating but for me it's still better than the absolute farce that is VAR. I would take the odd awful decision, even if it loses us the match over having goals disallowed because someones toenail was offside
  9. Totally agree. Tuesday will be tough but we can do it if we play to our potential. I just have a feeling that the top 6 will finish as it is now and we'll just miss out but as you say ATM it's in our hands
  10. We need to get rid of him and Bannan before we have any chance of success.
  11. Yes for me. Need stability and Moore has started to get us going. We looked nowhere near a top 6 side for alot of this season and he's started to get the team to gel. Stick with him but expectations will be that next season we are right up there from the get go.
  12. When they say "...and potentially more" I assume they are waiting to see how this season ends before giving Darren a call?
  13. Personally I agree that, had he stayed, Bruce would have proven himself to be our best manager in a long time but I can't vote him above someone who got us to the playoff final and semi finals in consecutive seasons based on what I believe might have happened. Could have been doesn't cut it for me. On that basis Carlos has been the best
  14. It's results like that, digging in deep and getting the winner at the death that define promotion teams
  15. When we got relegated, weren't paying players etc it looked like a complete disaster. I personally felt we were potentially looking at a relegation again this season or at least flirting with it. But with the signings we were able to make and what appeared to be some stability at a club level I thought we could be looking at top half. Overall I'm pleased with where we are. If we get into the playoffs that would be slightly more than I expected if I'm being perfectly honest
  16. This is a question for the regulars who attend the games - unfortunately I'm not one of those. But it seems to me that our huge turnaround in results is as much linked to the signing of Jordan Storey (and maybe Lewis Gibson although I believe he has been in and out with injuries). I keep reading a lot about the likes of Berahino, Byers and Johnson really getting their acts together but very little about Storey and Gibson. We appear to be playing with more comfort and belief and surely this is significantly linked to having a more stable and secure defensive line? Players feel more able to push forward and commit to attacks when the backline is solid. How big of an impact do you think these two have had? Particularly Storey.
  17. I can't take a 'best of' list seriously if it doesn't have K. Lee in it. I'd admit his injuries would be be a huge factor in leaving him out but you have Hooper and Fletcher in there so... Suppose you have to specify what you mean by 'best'. If it's about football attributes such as skill and technical ability then Lee Bullen wouldn't even make a top 75. But if it's about loyalty, service and influence then yes he's right in there.
  18. No offense intended but Id completely forgotten about him tbh
  19. My memory of him is that he was a workhorse. Always grafted and gave 100%. Very rarely injured Not very Wednesday really was he
