  1. Owlstalk and reliable are definitely 2 words that should never be put together in the same sentence.
  2. Very well put, and much more succinctly than I did ! I just find it incredulous that after all the turmoil of pre season, people are unhappy with a clean sheet at home again and another 3 points. I appreciate many want free flowing, inventive football , but this is a brutal league, and if you have to win playing ugly football, gaining a 1-0 win, I personally will take that from now until the end of the season. Points gained are all that matter everything else is a bonus.
  3. And there you have it, only on Owlstalk. Another home win, clean sheet, currently top of the table, with the best start in god knows how many years, and the comments about a mid table team beating a relegation team, I fu**ing despair. What is it that a lot of you want ? 6-0 strolls every game ? Put aside your indifference to Bullen, team selection, choice of substitutes etc, it is points on the board, something it usually takes us till October to achieve.
  4. Thank you ETT. I said this last year, but no harm in saying it again, but on behalf of myself and many other SWFC fans, thank you for taking the time out to post this and I look forward to the updates as the season progresses.
  5. Bullen did say FF picked up a knock late last week, so his non inclusion in the squad was in all probability down to that. No conspiracy or disgruntlement from what I can tell.
  6. You really are a tiresome I individual. 2 average wins you say, what do you want, 6-0 romps every game. Do everyone a favour and take your head for a s**t.
  7. Cannot agree with the struggling aspect as mentioned. 3 games in, and 2 wins and a loss away from home, where we created enough to at least draw, if not win. Not a bad start, in all honesty, and quite frankly, knee jerk posts like this one just sum up our fanbase. Fickle doesn't even begin to describe it. Replicate the first 3 games results over a season, and we will be right up there.
  8. Confidence is high, 2 good results, no midweek game so the players will be fresh and raring to go. As all have pointed out, it is going to be a tough game, but isn't every game in this league the same ? Our quality will see us through, 3-1, Fletcher, Harris & Iorfa
  9. Bit of a change for me -: Westwood Iorfa Lees Borner Palmer Hutch Luongo Murphy FF Harris Fletch
  10. Tried to, but my hand wasn't steady enough
  11. Well done lad, enjoyed that. Pretty fair assessment.
  12. Until one or more of them get injured. Remember it wasn't too long ago that we ONLY had Big Dave and Joao as recognised strikers. Fletch, workhorse that he is, puts himself about, and increases his risk of injury. FF, in my opinion doesn't like playing as part of a front 2. Dave, is well Dave and Winnall has not had much football for a number of months. If you are ok with those 4 being our regular attackers, then fair enough, but I would be very nervous if it were to be.
  13. Sorry Ellis, but you can throw some of them in. Remember a couple of years ago against Ipswich, young Andre Dozzell came on aged 16 and scored against us. What about young Elliott at Fulham, who played in a cup game aged 15 and is now at Liverpool. Yes, you take a chance, but it does sometimes pay off. To say that our youngsters are not good enough for this level is a pretty sweeping statement, which I personally disagree with, but I accept that the vast majority of people reading this thread, would have the same opinion as yourself. That said, Borukov and in particular Rice and Grant are 3 from the u18/u23 squads I would like to get a chance to be in and around the match day squad.
  14. It's amazing how many people do not want to give our younger players a chance. Look at Leicester City. Chilwell, Ndidi, Maddison, Tielemans , Pereira, Barnes, Gray, Choudhary. The vast majority of them are 23 and under, with Pereira I think being 25. They are the future of Leicester City. We have youngsters who Jos blooded so to speak, and there was a good deal to like about a couple, Thorniley, Penney, O'Grady. Our financial constraints mean we shoukd be looking at getting our youngsters more exposure and experience, either by being in and around the match day squad or going out on loan. My point in respect of Borukov is that with Joao leaving, Rhodes possibly following, FF possibly getting his ban soon, we are thin on strikers, and with the transfer deadline looming, and no guarantee that we could get a decent player or two in, Borokov is someone who we could look to promote from within. None of us can state with any certainty whether a young player is ready or not, some may take to it like a duck to water, others maybe not so, but we should at least explore the possibility of it happening surely.
