    Of course so, I’m a member of The National Truss.

    ‘We will just replace him’

    A funny thing is personal opinion, everyone is right, even when their wrong. Reach and Bannan can afford the odd howler, even if it upsets some.

    Lookman deal done....wow

    I really wanted him to score today, that would have nailed his loan deal, such is life, we must widen our search.

    I’ve heard that it’s Ronaldo, as he fancies a break from football.

    We needed that, or more to the point SB needed to see what a shambles this club is, he will no doubt sort out the defence as a priority, loan players come to mind, along with shipping out whoever he can, interesting times ahead.

    If we sold every single player tonight

    If we managed to do so what do you suggest we do with the ten bob?

    Hull City 3 : 0 The Wednesday OMDT

    Chill guys, if we were good enough to beat the division’s in form side on their turf, we wouldn’t need Bruce, would we?

    We’re not as good as that.

    It’s very easy to write off £10 million worth of someone else’s money, he’s a challenge alright, but I reckon that SB is up to it. He’s already proved what he can do, I would have preferred him to go out on a shorter loan to say, a Dutch or German second tier club, where he wasn’t known, it appears to be all about expectation, the supporters expect him to be poor, and he goes on to prove them correct, just remember how Fergie instilled confidence into Andy Cole, wasn’t SB around at the time?
  10. We need someone of the like of James Milner, however he just keeps improving with age, but as soon as Klopp decides to replace him I wager that SB will show interest.

    He’s certainly proving to be a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma, however SB would be remiss in not attempting to find the old Rhodes, after all he is one of his squad.

    Squad value

    If we drew Man City at home in both domestic cups then it is highly likely that we would.

    Squad value

    Statistics, statistics and damned lies comes to mind. Players are worth what another club is willing to pay for them, Reach cost circa £6.5 million, his detractors valued him at next to nowt, and he’s now supposed to be worth over £12 million, so who the hell knows?

    Owl burns Madine shirt

    Well I suppose that his redeeming feature is honesty.

    Now the dust has settled...

    Re-building a football team and a house have their similarities, in that both will get worse before they get better. This isn’t a Man Utd situation, where the players were always good enough to win trophies, we need to be patient while SB starts to place round and square pegs into their correct holes. So mathematically safe from relegation followed by experimentation is the sensible way to go, and I believe that SB is a sensible guy.
