  1. Monk, Pulis and now Thompson have all overlooked him. Maybe he's just not good enough. Based on what I've seen of him I'm not surprised he doesn't get picked.
  2. I wouldn't have put it quite so strongly (in case I bump into him one day....) but this is the problem for me. I think he's a bit of a loose cannon and have no confidence he could work well with those both above and below him (especially without Shakespeare). I also question his commitment. Having done well for himself on the merry-go round I'm not sure he still has the fire to make this the job that will be his legacy. I'm more confident that Cook will see this is a first opportunity to prove himself at a big club and will still have the ambition to really make it somewhere. His
  3. Very well-worded letter. Have you thought about offering DC your services as PR manager?
  4. I've just listened to a programme on Radio 4 about the death of nuance. I was surprised it didn't mention Owlstalk. When we appointed Pulis some of us on here (including me) said we might hate the bloke, we might hate the football he gets us playing but he might be just what we need - an experienced campaigner with a track record of getting clubs away from relegation. We needed an outsider to come in, work out what was needed and get it sorted, even if it meant telling DC some home truths. It hasn't worked out well has it. The football was even worse than we'd feared, w
  5. Or an Adam Proudlock. Every signing might work or it might not. In our case its usually the latter but we never know. But I was more pleased about getting Howard than I will be if we get Vokes. I always rated Howard.
  6. Can't see how we're going to score goals. We just hoof it upfield and hope someone can chase it down. No inter-passing in their half of the pitch. It's like they're making it up as they go on. The only shape Pulis cares about is defensive shape - no plan for attacking. His teams usually sneak the odd goal from set-pieces but they're as bad as ever. Fancy starting with a midfield of Bannan, a centre-forward and a centre-half! Do we have to keep playing Paterson just because he's got a long throw? Because as a midfielder he's useless. Windass did all that could be expect
  7. After watching last nights match, I'm thinking he knows no other way.
  8. I suspect that playing against the top sides suits our style better. Today we nearly did a perfect job of sitting deep and catching them on the break. I'm not sure we have the personel to force the issue against weaker sides.
  9. Didn't their last set of accounts show something like a 42 million pound loss? In one season (not over 3 seasons). And then they bought Lucas Joao and George Puskas. Does anyone know how they have managed not to be mired in FFP problems?
  10. Exactly. A great striker needs a golden touch. One touch goals are even better than one-touch passes.
  11. 'You can't come on till you've read it. What? You haven't read it? Bugger, we'll have to wait till half-time
  12. Thanks for keeping us informed about the youth teams Ethel
  13. If I remember correctly Hickton started at centre-half (but he was playing centre-forward in the reserves by the time I started watching - he was my first Owls hero) Mel started in midfield Warhurst, unlike all our current defenders, had an exquisite first touch
