    Worst day of my life
  2. johan djourou

    I think you're remembering the player Terry was then, as opposed to the player he is now, which i totally get. I just can't get past the Terry that was getting his arse handed to him by a Watford defensive midfielder last season
  3. johan djourou

    He' s a better, younger version of Loovens, Carlos demands his centre backs are ball playing, Djourou certainly is that and given the fees we were being quotes for players with barely a fraction of his pedigree (Hanley and the lad from Cardiff being the obvious ones) I think he could be the signing of the season.

    All about opinions fella and I respect yours, but I can't see Terry playing 20 games for Villa this season. He was making some poor decisions for Chelski last season and he's already making excuses for this year: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/40796027

    Maybe 5 years ago....

    Not even close, Djorou is younger, has a better pedigree and is an all round better player. Anyone at the Huddersfield home leg could see Loovens best days are (sadly) behind him...
  7. And the fact he spent more time waiting for trams than he did on the pitch probably speaks volumes

    Errr scored the goals when Norwich were in the Premier League.

    No chance, not cos it's the pigs, but there's no way they could afford him even if they wanted him
  10. Without cheating...

    Enoch Showumni Apps: too many Goals: less than Mark Crossley in the equivalent number of games

    The second post now only makes the first one more likely to happen

    But you did it without context which kinda inferred that CC was chopping and changing the team, rather than the changes being forced upon him...which many of them were.

    I think you've been a little bit disingenuous about the striker situation (and you've also missed a cup game which does have a bearing). In the first game he played Fletch and Fessi which was clearly his preferred pairing, but Fletch ended up with 10 stitches and was unavailable for the Norwich game (as was Fessi who hadn't travelled). Joao had played well in the cup game (sandwiched between Norwich and Villa) and scored, so clearly deserved his start and Hooper starts as next available. For the next game (Burton) Fletch is back available and starts, but Fessi's still out due what happened during in the build up to the Norwich game, harsh on Joao, but he had missed a sitter in the Norwich game. We get to the Leeds game after a bad defeat at Burton, by now Fessi's back so he reverts to his first choice pairing of Fletch and Fessi. We lose badly to Leeds so he moves Fessi to the wing and gives Joao another chance against Burton. Doesn't really work so he goes back to his original favourite front two of Fessi and Fletch again for the Wigan game and they both score.

    The only part that's opinion is where I call him w@nk, the rest is fact. He wasn't though, they picked him because they had literally no-one else to choose, the fact he averaged 25 appearances per season throughout his 6 years with us in a variety of different positions at a time when he was part of, in your very own words, 'one of the worse [sic] squads we've ever had' suggests he wasn't decent at all doesn't it? I didn't bring it up Pod 9 did in the second post: So hang on, successive manager's didn't play him either consistently or in his preferred position because he was such a good player? Are you actually reading what you're typing? 375, what of it?

    played under 5 different managers and none of them ever saw enough in him to give him a run at centre half. He wasn't competing against Maldini and Baresi for a spot in the team it was such footballing legends as Dean Smith, Ashley Westwood and Danny Maddix. Mind things did pick up for the lad when we released him and the mighty Halifax Town picked him up. He may well turn out to be the best academy manager we've ever had (and I hope he does) doesn't change the fact he was a w@nk player
