  1. I'll try, CW, I'll try. By the way, any news on Jordan Reuter going to Naaaarwech?
  2. Börner means someone who lives near a Born or well. The English equivalent is Burns. So it's Julian Burns to thee and me.
  3. True, but I can't see Wagner signing him with defending like that. Ye Gods, he's worse than Van Aken.
  4. He's our kinda defender. Ha ha. Sore good.
  5. I'd say it's down to a play-off hangover, retaining Carlos after the 'Udders shambles, terrible injuries, and appointing Jostle.
  6. It's not just about what you've got, it's what you do with it. It's about management. Norwich were bob until this season. Leeds on paper are no stronger than they were under Evo. Wilder's somehow got a 62.5% win rate with that squad. Unbelievable.
  7. We need a smaller, fitter squad. Not absolute bobbage, but surplus to requirements I'd say.
  8. The problem we have, though, is an absence of money. Some of these players might not be so sloppy next season under Brucie in any case. Bring some new blood in and we might see a transformation in them.
  9. When a group of players has been together for some time - no matter how good they are - things get stale. This lot's time has been and gone here. I don't blame them for not getting us over the line, it's Chansiri's fault for retaining Carlos too long and then gambling on Charlie Chaplin. Where would United's squad of players have been in the league under him? Not heading for the PL, that's for sure.
  10. I'm pretty sure that Rhodes was used as a lone striker at bonny 'Boro, which isn't his game. I mean, you've got to be a top striker indeed to succeed in that role in the PL. There are very few clubs in this country that can afford a forward of that calibre, and surely if a club had such resources then it wouldn't need to play that system because it could afford a better all-round team. And it helps if you've got a top outfit behind you when up front alone, not one like 'Boro had.
  11. Yes, Milud, Wilder's vulvaceous enough. Let's hope there's one flying over the Lane a year hence as their relegation is confirmed.
  12. In all seriousness, that's what's made it so painful for me. The fact that they did nowt wrong. There's just nothing you can say as a retort. They've done it exactly how we'd want it done. One of our own in charge, playing decent football with decently-priced players and decently-priced tickets. I still think that their board will wee wee tail it up, but on the grass I'm not sure how you could top what they did.
  13. Personally I don't have a problem with it. Like it or not, there's no point denying what United have achieved They didn't buy their way up, kick their way up, cheat or were lucky (which in a sense makes it even worse). Chansiri is simply acknowledging it. He'll have to lump it like the rest of us.
  14. Exactly, and that fact won't be lost on the fragrant Wilder either. He's already chuntered about lack of investment, but he's now "arrived" and it's go to stool or bust. Blades fans may be giggling at our expense right now, but if he quits for pastures new then that lot will very quickly unravel.
