  1. I've read about 20 comments saying he's at Hillsborough tomorrow but not a one that actually says in what capacity???
  2. To be fair second half against Wigan was good and the two occasions you mention but thats it, we really are clutching at straws for positives.
  3. I fully backed Moore and thought he had enough as a manager to make us real contenders, I was prepared to accept that the team would take time to gel with so many new additions, what I did expect to see though was gradual improvements week on week, I'm not seeing that at all, if anything were getting worse, we've just made a team that have lost their last four at home look like peak Brazil, not good enough.
  4. One of the few players that have emerged with any credit from the last few games which is a sure sign he'll be benched for the next one.
  5. Alan Irvine, his tactics were the oppositions greatest advantage.
  6. I will never, ever give him a pass for screwing up our best chance of winning a major trophy in my lifetime.
  7. Exactly mate you've summed it up perfectly, they'll take woke soundbites over actually winning things all day long.
  8. That match shouldn't have even gone to penalties and he should have been sacked for the choice of penalty takers alone, appalling game management.
  9. Need to get rid of Southgate, we have a great crop of players who he's going to waste if we're not careful.
  10. Please don't remind me of that, I'd filed it right to the back of my memory banks.
  11. We should start a sweepstake for the week in the season that "play the youngsters" first gets mentioned
  12. I was actually dreading this season, with the embargo I expected us fielding a team of U23’s and Bannan, the signings and the fact that it appeared to be the manager that was actually making them definitely changed my mind and I was looking forward to it, the opening few games we picked up points without really playing that well which I thought was a good sign as we would go onto improve performance wise and have a good season, unfortunately we seem to have gone backwards, have no identity and no settled starting 11, ten league games in and I’m already struggling for enthusiasm to watch this team (a similar pattern to the last few seasons), it definitely reminds of the L1 season with Chris Turner at the (John) helm.
  13. If we're wanting a bloke back that's given the grunters something that they'll be dining out on for years then the bar has really been set low.
  14. I never want to see or hear the words "everything has to go through Bannan" again............ever.
  15. Pretty much this, Palmer was awful despite getting in some great crossing positions.
  16. I don't think I could ever fully lose interest but my love of football in general is definitely waning.
  17. That would have been when the legendary Tom Walker was landlord, great old school pub and as you say the best Stones money could buy.
  18. I'll go but if entry into the ground gets ridiculous I'll go back to the pub, f*** em.
  19. Quite a few candidates but I'm going for Lee Gregory, great to see us have a proper no9 in the side again and his two poachers goals so far show his worth. Honourable mention to Iorfa, Peacock- Farrell and Adeniran but can't really fault anyone so far.
  20. Good fine, I've got the home programme with Carlton on the cover.
  21. Did reasonably well with the largest budget ever gifted to an SWFC manager, gave the grunters the best day out they've had in 40 years and cost us a place in a second consecutive play off final with woeful tactics against Huddersfield. Snake oil salesman.
  22. Done a bit more digging and the manager was Len Walker, the game was Oct 3rd, 1989, I'm sure Steve Whitton got a hat trick.
  23. Can anyone remember the early round League Cup game (1989???) against Aldershot, it was in the days when the first round games were played over two legs with the first at Hillsborough, it turned out to be one of the most dull 0-0's you could ever imagine with the lowly visitors looking the better team, this led to their manager stating before the return leg that they would easily beat us with the statement in the thread title. Final score - 0-8
