  1. Not sure on this one........speak to a Hull fan through work and I asked him about Wilks , his synopsis was ; Good player on his day who would do well at league 1 level , but can be a bit bertie big bo***ks with his attitude.
  2. 1. Bannan 2. Gregory 3. Hutchinson 4. Byers 5. Johnson 6, Hunt 7. Luongo 8. Peacock - Farrell 9. Storey 10. Mendez-Laing 11. Palmer 12. Adeniran 13. Paterson 14. Berahino 15. Corbeanu 16. Dunkley 17. Wing 18.Dele - Bashiru 19. Brennan 20. Kamberi 21. Shodipo 22.Wildsmith 23. Sow 24. Brown Not included Dean , Gibson, Windass, Iorfa etc cus of injury.
  3. Did just about enough to earn another crack at it............must start better than last year though.
  4. Regretfully I think our neighbours will make top 6 again......................the championship looks pretty weak this year.
  5. Waltham was asking us to sign one or two with creativity , think this lad comes into that category
  6. Remember watching him for the first time and thinking......oh dear. Bemusing how so many on here raved about him.
  7. We were rumoured to be after Caleb Taylor on loan from WBA who is left footed but that link seems to have gone quiet.
  8. What I posted in the "Bobby Dunne" thread yesterday ; This is good news , i watched an U23 game towards the end of the season and Bobby Dunn looked a very tidy and confident player with good technical ability.
  9. Everton 3 Wimbledon 2 in the 90,s when Everton had to win to stay up.....................stank the place out...................the winning goal was a 20 yard tackle. It did however relegate the blunts so I`m prepared to forgive and forget.
  10. This is good news , i watched an U23 game towards the end of the season and Bobby Dunn looked a very tidy and confident player with good technical ability.
  11. Providing Derby keep messing about ; Wednesday Ipswich Bolton Peterborough Portsmouth Barnsley
  12. Was very hit and miss last season.....be interesting to see how he fares this time around.
  13. My feelings exactly.................in particular the play off games , where in all honesty he looked very leggy and ineffective.
  14. Posted this yesterday , and its looking more and more likely , don`t get me wrong , for once DC may be cutting his cloth appropriately but taking everything into account , the two signings we have made , Wildsmith and Mendez-Laing turning down offers , and targets like Tucker and Smith opting for MK and Rotherham , would seem to back this up.
  15. I may be wrong , but , our first two signings may suggest that we are working under a more stringent wage bill.
  16. What a day............................drinks in Bury St Edmunds then , to this day , the most complete away performance I have ever seen from us.
  17. Can honestly say I have never seen him play , so wait and see for me..............welcome to The Owls.
  18. I get all the caveats ..........................and ideally the players should have been having a decent break this summer , however... Gareth Southgate couldn`t have got things more wrong in this 4 game spell if he tried. Guehi and Tomori........promising young centre backs ...... I presume GS picked them to see if they offered more than Mings, Coady, White etc as back up to his favored two , yet barely gave them a handful of minutes.....whats the point ? Kane....our one true world class player should have been packed off on his holidays instead he starts 3 out of 4 games and GS and the whole country is no wiser as to who out of Abraham, Calvert-Lewin, Ings, Wilson, Watkins etc are his back up , replacement , or (heaven forfend we try something different) his partner. Trippier, Justin and James.....3 right footers at left back ?...........everyone knows Chilwell and Shaw are first choice when fit so why not look at Tyrick Mitchell some more or Luke James etc........you know.........natural LEFT backs. Mason Mount 90 plus games this season......starts 3 out of 4 games...................Grealish underused and fresh starts 1 out of 4........lets face it he doesn`t like Grealish and only picks him just to save the media hounding. James Maddison , a player who plays in the 10 role.......................a position that NO-ONE in the squad has nailed , has a cracking season and doesn`t even make the squad. Harry Maguire , a player shot of all confidence should have been told to jet off on his hols , playing him just makes thing worse....at his best a few years ago his breaks into midfield were a major part of our play , these days he cant wait to get rid of the ball cus he is shot of confidence.....which is where we came in. Saka.......nowhere ready , yet all of a sudden he seems like a"Mount" style shoe in.......I guarantee if Grealish had played as poor as him and Sterling have in this camp , he wouldnt have been selected next time around. Why give Ramsdale 2 starts ........maybe give Pope a chance in one of them in a proper game.
  19. Please tell me that`s a David Brent style pi$$ take.
