  1. Could we benefit from relegation?

    Well it's still bad though isn't it! To be clear I now do not think relegation can be positive in the way I imagined. Reg has blown me away with the use of facts and figures! Who would of thought that possible on OT!??
  2. Could we benefit from relegation?

    Thanks Reg, well that basically ruins any possibility of a positive impact then:/ Neil, delete post!!!!
  3. Could we benefit from relegation?

    Lucky there's no neg for sure! Not a popular suggestion is it! I'm following Neil's lead in positive posts and I'm trying to find the positives in our relegation form:/ Someone mentioned TV income, what is the drop in TV income from Championship to L1?? It can't be much?
  4. I feel safe posting this as I can't be negged :) Would relegation be so so bad for us right now? We are screwed with FFP for a few years. We will not be able to compete with other clubs in our division for wages. We will need to use either our youth players, invest in promising cheap youth players from other clubs or try to find bargains from other leagues around the world. We require a complete rebuild of the squad. In League 1 we will be able to play a majority of youth and they will have a better chance of winning and developing. If we play a youth team in the Championship we have the danger of losing a lot and damaging players confidence forever. You learn how to win and how to lose. As a bonus I'm hoping that some of our expensive useless older players will either have a relegation release or a relegation pay drop clause. Could we be that lucky? Match day income would be almost the same, we would be better off. Anyone ITK about high paid failures contracts? So crystal ball time..... if we are relegated we play youth in the next season, they gel, they win and we are promoted back to the championship with a young but experienced side that is used to winning. We then get back into the Premier League at the first attempt and are clear of FFP;) It could happen !!! There's only a few holes in my argument .
  5. It looks to me like we are putting up the "For Sale" sign without putting up the "For Sale" sign. by benching him we have alerted possible suitors, if they make a good bid he will be gone. I don't agree by the way, I think he has to play. But on the left not as a striker, he's a great inside forward coming in from the LEFT!
  6. Winnall

    I don't quite understand how we are a team that doesn't create enough chances for our strikers to score, yet Winnall seems to get credit for making his own chances, but has trouble getting a start. it doesn't add up. I agree he should start. Him and fletcher.
  7. your 1st game you went to

    Came over from Australia in 97. Selhurst Park v Crystal Palace. Di Canio scored with his butt!
  8. Love to see real attacking intent and something a little different. Any chance of a 4-3-3? Westwood Hunt - Lees - Loovens - Pudil Lee - Abdi - Hutch FF Joao - Hooper Bench with Rhodes, Winnall, Wallace, Reach. I know there is Zero chance. It really is hard fitting all our strikers in!
  9. I tried to get those positive vibes back from Carlos' first season. watch the extended highlights from that great FA cup night vs Arsenal. It made me feel better for a while until I started to think about how different we played. Helan and Joao were pacey and a real threat. Do we miss that dimension now? Just that different trick the opposition needs to think about.
  10. Part of the problem is the photo. The home kit doesn't fit properly or it's made badly. When you walk past a shop front and there's a shirt on a mannequin it's pinned and pulled back etc to make it look good, then you see it and want to buy it. The marketing department have screwed this one up. Fletcher is fitter than me, if it looks bobbar on him what the fu** am I going to look like in that thing? I might wait until I see it around and know the cost first. If it's more than £40.......it's a no. Away shirt....hmmmmm nope
  11. Wednesday Youth

    I'm just bumping this from a few months ago. I think we might be getting a few youth players into the team by the looks of preseason and the lack of transfers. I'm actually happy with blooding a few, put them on the bench and give them a few minutes to get some experience and show us what they can do. I don't want some has been blocking their development. Part 2 of the initial question - are any lower league clubs sniffing around for loans? If not why not? Are we telling clubs no, so we can use them?
  12. I Just Atdhe Say I'm Sorry

    That vid (the highlights reel for Chelsea) makes him look like the midfield beast everyone has been asking for!
  13. Joe ledley

    I was thinking the same thing.
  14. Has anyone else noticed that Hutch has a great right foot cross on him? He did one in the playoffs but I also saw an old Chelsea game where he played on the right. He whipped in a cross for a great goal. The playoff cross was just as good. Just quietly I'm not sure what his best position is. Is he really big enough for CB? Or even the monster CM every one talks about? What about as a RM who can move centrally if required? It's not like our wingers break with pace anyway. Unfortunately I can't find any vids of his crosses to show, but they are really nice. Someone find some can you??
