    Mick McCarthy

    People saying Mick McCarthy wouldn't want to work with our chairman... pshhhh! Of course he would take the job! It's a big job, well paid and he's not exactly red hot property is he? Be a right result for him. I like him, he's seen and done it all and IMHO we need someone with a ton of championship experience if/when Jos goes.

    It's a sign. Literally!

    I saw Giles Coke shopping in the eccy road co-op last night. Do I win £5?

    Dawson has gone backwards in recent games, his confidence has clearly taken a knock. He never used to flap at crosses like this - I wouldn't mind if he had a good punch on him but he can't seem to get distance on it at all. To be expected I suppose for a young keeper trying to establish himself, but he's becoming a liability. Hope Weaver has him practising catching crosses non stop for the next 2 weeks... PS I do rate him but he needs to build his confidence back up
  4. I grew up in Buxton then Bakewell, so you get a weird mix of clubs supported depending on which side of the peaks you lived. Lots of Man U and Derby, and both Sheff clubs. I had little interest in football until I was 15-16. Just wasn't on my radar. I even went to a couple of Derby County games with school ticket freebies and thought it was great, but never went off my own back. Then one magical day I went to Hillsborough with my little bro (who a few of you know by his cunning username of Will Kirby) and some of his mates. Something about the whole experience gave me a massive football boner that has yet to subside The rest is history!
  5. We played well as a team and it was a very enjoyable evening, Jos is a genius

    Penney / Preston

    Preston in particular looked at home, very confident and decisive. Lots of good first time passes, he didn’t feel the need to have 8 touches to pick a pass. A few good crosses too. Impressed. Penney had less to do but did it all very calmly and I can see him getting a lot of games. Well done lads.
  7. My beef with fans 'playing their part' by forking out larger and larger wads of cash is that - in the unlikely event we actually get promoted - those fans won't get to share in the massive cash windfall will they? It's total BS and assumes fans will pay almost anything to get to the promised land. Personally I'm not really that fussed about promotion at all costs... as long as we play entertaining football and have a shot at it that's great fun in this league. If Chansiri wants to chuck cash at the club, that's his business and his risk. Just stay within FFP while you do it, and don't expect the fans to fund silly signings (we've had more than a few)

    £99 or £59 for the new shirt

    £59 is daylight robbery. Don’t let the laughably expensive £99 option make £59 seem reasonable! Great looking kit but FFS
  9. Jon Beswetherick.... my god
  10. Could be right but only time will tell on that one... if she can get £10M for Rhodes we should erect a statue of her outside the South Stand entrance

    What does Jos mean?

    Jos wants to identify the underlying cause of these injuries. It’s too many to just be bad luck, something is (or was) systematically wrong. I’m not ITK and this is second hand info, but a old colleague I trust told me he’d been talking to one of the physio staff recently (not sure if from the old or new team). He said that they always prepared detailed rehab plans which Carlos never once followed - he just got them playing after a couple of days back in training. Chimes with what Hutch was saying recently about Jos easing him back slowly, when Carlos always left it to him to declare himself fit. Would explain a few things if true.
  12. Should have based the anniversary kit on this. Would have been amazing.

    Wednesday - V - Preston OMDT

    Get in, great to see some positive football in the second half

    Joey Pelupessy

    My first viewing of Pelupessy in the flesh and I was not impressed. Not fair to judge on that game, but he was a long way off the pace.

    The return of BB

    Reach has every attribute to play wing back, which is probably our weakest position at the mo what with Fox making up the numbers really. I'd expect us to play Reach there, with Baz in the middle
