  1. Desperately need to actually play attacking wingers. I don't think this will change under Moore unfortunately. Lets attack and go for it. At least if we lose we can claim we attacked. This is just painful at the moment.
  2. Worst thing about this is we all expect a reaction but they rarely blumming do so. They'll all just come out and produce more slow laboured passing.
  3. We do need to make sure we keep talent we're developing so if he shows the promise we think, tie him down to a long term contract. I expect a conversation between Moore, Weaver, Haslam and Chansiri. Interestingly 3 out of Stokes current squad came from Weds. Jacob Brown was released as a youngster and Davies was never really given a chance. We definitely need to do more with our talent retention strategy.
  4. 1-1. Ipswich have just won so we won't be able to help them break their run of bad luck (which seems a normal things for Weds to do).
  5. I don't have a problem with FFP. You have to live within your means and clubs should try to do that. Football is full of discussion about clubs going bust, etc. The problem is the ludicrous wage rises at the top of the chain 400/500K per week. This has a knock on effect as it works down the quality of player/lower teams. You end up with average players demanding crazy wages as that becomes the average wage for players. It needs a reset but that won't happen until the big boys say enough (if Barca go bust it might happen). Whilst you've still got PSG/Man City paying large sums things will never change. Perhaps if they had a partial fan ownership and a cap on the ticket cost per league (but think this has some wider legality questions associated with). In summary, I just want to talk about football and not business.
  6. From a neb on their forum it sounds like he's dictating the midfield and they're keen to keep him for the entire season. Just noticed that Giles Coke is there too.
  7. Shakes 8 ball...... ask again later.
  8. Don't think we'll see Paterson leave today (he's only just discovering the best fishing spots). I'm assuming we'll have a list of possibilities in case Bannan leaves but won't expect much.
  9. Looks like a complete rebuild but they don't appear to have shipped many out. Be interesting to see how cook does as he's been back heavily. Wonder how they'll comply with FFP.
  10. Everygame is winnable. We just need to ensure we play on the front foot. I'd like us to start with either Corbeanu or Sow instead of Johnson and put Brown at LB.
  11. Given the good work to get Iorfa and Windass to sign longer contracts, I'm optimistic that Moore will make sure we tie these lads down. Should be a minimum until they are 21. No 1 or 2 year contracts.
  12. We need to show respect to every team in this division (but not fear). Today I'd like us to be slightly more positive than at Rotherham. Ideally 2/3-0 but I'd settle for 1-0 all day long. My aim is for 28 wins and 7-10 draws this season. So far on track.
  13. Always evolving and keep looking to the future. I know it's early but if we can pick up players like Adeniran, develop and them keep them or sell them, then the club is moving forward. A refreshing change from the last few years.
  14. Definitely try to get him again for next season (most likely on loan). I wonder who out of this squad would be able to make the step up and where we'd finish if we were competing in the championship.
  15. Such quality. Reminder of the plethora of quality forwards we had at one point.
  16. What a guy. Amazing stat. Also, consider how many defence splitting passes he's played over the last few games. I actually thought we should get rid (simply because of the wage bill) but keeping him will be our most important piece of transfer business. Bet a few teams test us with bids towards the end of the transfer window.
  17. A calamitous defender who gives away penalties or gets sent off? An ability to concede in the last few minutes?
  18. It seems we're improving game on game and other teams will drop points. Portsmouth have not played any of the favourites whereas Wigan seemed to have had nothing but difficult games. Surprise package is Burton Albion who have beat the top teams. If we get 6+ points from next 3 games I'd be happy. It seems like League One is going to be a beast of a competition this year, whereas the Championship looks abit easier (not many teams going cray with spending) so it's just our luck that we're not in it. Anyway in Moore we trust (just hoping he doesn't do too well and someone like Palace, etc try to poach him later in the season).
  19. Mac? Surely must be on all the time as Bannan is Everywhere!!
  20. Yes. Was during a match in the Early 2000s. We were absolute crap and I was whinging about a player on the pitch not doing much and the fella in front turned round and advised me to shut up (which I didn't at the point). Was shut up a few minutes later when said player smashed one in from range. The guy turned around and we both laughed.
  21. Reading too much into the wings line..... ....he'll be off to Swansea or Cardiff then.
  22. Haven't Sunderland sold their top two goal scorers from last year. Ipswich have made some good signing but it looks like their highly rated player Downes is off to Swansea. Can't help Derby have missed a trick by not signing Max Ram from Forest. We've made decent signing to complement a good L1 squad. Think BPF will be the biggest factor this year. Whatever happens I can't see one club running away with it and we may get to the last 5 games with 7/8 in with a shout of top 2.
