  1. Funny when people looked at the fixtures and said after an expected defeat at Leeds we would have a run of winnable games, then we beat Leeds and lost 0-5 at home. Our team is as unpredictable as this league. The next 12 days will tell us all we need to know about our ambitions and expectations for the rest of the season
  2. Most football clubs lose money. Everton and Chelsea are hundreds of million down, the issue is.. where has Chansiri taken us in his 4 years after spending all that money? And/or how has he improved the club off the pitch?
  3. Doubt it, my feeling is Chansiri doesn’t have the same enthusiasm anymore. His delay in replacing Bruce was shocking and his body language in Monk’s press conference seemed non fussed. Whilst we battle these law suits I expect he’s happy to leave Monk in charge as long as we stay a championship side
  4. My opinion isn’t liked but I still feel until we get a new ownership that breathes a fresh life into the club we are going to be in this Groundhog Day for a while. I’d like Monk to do well but not sure he’ll get a chance
  5. Exactly what I was thinking, potential points deduction coming and just spanked at home by a midtable team missing some of their best players. Horrible day
  6. Stories like this are why we need to get promoted this season so we can keep our best players. No pressure lads
  7. Since he’s been managed by Bruce and Monk he has improved a lot and more like the player that was attracting attention in his early Charlton days. So we need to keep him as replacing him for another championship standard left back might not be easy/cheap
  8. We did okay at the league leader’s place last weekend. Hopefully someone will step up again tomorrow and then we have 10 days before our next league game to get someone in.
  9. Derby saying the charges are unlawful and they will contest the charges. Sounds familiar
  10. Exactly right, in many respects there’s less chance of a club like Luton returning to the top flight these days as they can’t compete with clubs with parachute payments, or even clubs the size of us, and if they get taken over by a rich bloke there’s now a limit to what they can spend. If they develop a young player they are out the door at 15 to Chelsea or Man City’s (or Leicester) academy, only to be loaned out to some foreign team in the future. Football made a lot more sense 20 years ago
  11. I’m surprised if people are disappointed with Monk’s press conferences, I quite like listening to what he says. Stuart Gray conferences were the ones to avoid, as such zzzz
  12. So that’s Nketiah and Adams ruled out today. Leeds will now get Gray or Gayle. Apparantly we’re way off sorting a Wickham deal. But we have signed the next Messi in Hidalgo, so not all bad news
  13. If Monk wants Bony then so be it, he’s mainly played at PL level in this country so maybe he’ll find the championship easy.. obviously he has fitness issues but I doubt Monk will sign a player who can’t play games. I’ll wait to moan after 5 minutes of his home debut like any loyal supporter should do
  14. Well it should quickly add on another 10 pages to this thread thanks to hearsay on Owlstalk. And I don’t mean Noel and Kim marsh
  15. Yep and we’ll probably end up with a cut price Nathan Delfouneso
  16. You realise he’s 23 and so the timeframe you are looking at he was aged 19-23. You have very high standards for a club that has been outside the top league for 20 years.
  17. Can add Che Adams to that list too, basically whoever Leeds don’t get I hope we get one of the others
  18. Good shout, the kind of player I’d like us to be trying to get. Surely a swap for Winnall would be possible.. I see English clubs would have to pay more in compensation than Scottish ones, but still worth considering
  19. They’ve got that from Sky Bet odds, Leeds are favourites then us. Basically Leeds are favourites for every striker going
  20. Thought the same, if he stands out there in the next year he will he watched by the likes of Cardiff soon enough
  21. Newport thanking Monk and Chansiri for helping getting it done https://www.newport-county.co.uk/news/2020/january/ash-baker-perm-signing/
