    Jos Luhukay

    Not read the whole thread so might be repeating but it seems to be that the scenario laid out for Luhukay was that we didn't have owt to spend, we were getting rid of some of the lower asset-value high earners and that youth was the way to go. Yes, these quality players are still available to us but lets do without them, see whether we sink or swim. We sank, the Manager paid the price. Now Chansiri is changing tack, bringing in an expensive Manager and (presumably) backing him (somehow) within the confines of P&S. The experiment failed but luckily the experiment took place whilst we still had these quality, end of career or injury prone players to bring back into the fold. Imagine if we'd gone down the youth route with no back up, no ability to backtrack. It's simultaneously genius and an absolute car wreck of a way to run a club.
  2. Who'd have thought an algorithm based upon performances in the season to date would have us finishing pretty much where we currently sit in the 25 game form table (aka The Table).

    CHANSIRI WE TRUST

    Chancers arent from any particular geographical background. You think all bad chairmen are non-UK? Have you looked down the road at Chesterfield? I agree with your first point in principle but argue that the greatest chairman in the world can also be the worst chairman in the world dependent upon circumstances and results on the field. Do you think the we'll all be fawning over a chairman who openly explains to us exactly how we're going backwards or do you think the fact we're going backwards would cloud judgements irrespective of how good or bad the chairman really was?

    CHANSIRI WE TRUST

    To be fair, misguided or not, clueless or not, if I'd pumped millions into a football club half way around the world and who I had no prior affiliation to, if I gave that club two of it's best years of the last two decades, I probably wouldn't just meekly reverse out of there without a few polite words of explanation, mitigation and deflection of blame for all that's going wrong. The whole thing ISN'T Chansiris fault, you could argue other things are symptoms of the affliction Chansiri has given us but he's not to blame for the players on the field underperforming, he's not to blame for the injuries, maybe he's to blame for other things; I'm obviously not as in the know as others who state as fact things that really ought to only be conjecture. I don't think he's maliciously spent money on the club, so whether he was the right man or not, whether I think he should stay or not, I'm not going to slate him, if he leaves I only hope he sells to someone who is perfect, otherwise we'll be going through this whole charade again from a fanbase of a club who have spent just over ten years of the last 50 being anything even remotely relevant to the upper echelons of football but who think we should be channelling Citeh for the title.

    Stop it Gene, you’re killing me

    Already posted elsewhere but may as well stick it here too... I've crunched the numbers so you don't have to... Average height of our three big units = a shade over 6' 1" Average height of our five big units = a shade under 6' 1" Average height of Uniteds three CBs = a shade over 6' 2" Maybe he was thinking of our three behemoths in midfield, average height just over 5' 7"? ...A team with four youth players with an average of 15 championship appearances in their careers (most coming this season)... ...A team with three players discarded by other clubs... ...A team with two much maligned players who cost next to nothing... ...A team with a player who has made the grand total of zero games for his parent club in three years... ...A team with one player who signed for a middling amount of cash in todays market (the kind of money that buys a championship center back)...

    Embarrassed

    So, an hour before the match you saw the team we were putting out... And then you expected us to go out and play like Barca? We went there with the intention of keeping the point we started the game with and we got it, we kept a clean sheet and not once did they turn us around, get behind us or have a golden chance (penalty side). I'd say we had a right to be pleased with the result given what we went there to achieve.

    New Celebrity Wednesday Fan?

    Nonsense, you can see with the pained expression, the smile that doesn't reach the eyes, that he is a long standing Wednesday fan... the discomfort that he's miss judged how ridiculous the fancy dress policy was and overdone it with his Wednesday cap...

    Hutchinson At Centre Back

    Would be interesting in a back three, something certainly needs to happen to tighten up... We're not gung-ho, we play a generally conservative game.... the style of play we have should result in clean sheets and isn't.

    The two Boro goals

    Not really that important to put it inside the post when you have an open goal tap in... Could otherwise be described as nearly screwing it up.
  13. Binky Griptite

    Did you rate Boro?

    Yep, as others say, a Pulis side... Wouldn't want to have to watch them all season but they'll be there or thereabouts.

    Man of the Match & Ratings

    Hector was ok, he was a bit too lightweight... He's a unit, he should have done what the Boro defenders did, take everything, man and ball. The first goal he didn't do enough to stop it then didn't follow the play... Might be being a bit harsh, lots of players ambled back. Pelupessy is a 'nuisance' player, when defending he rats about, gets in at least 'half a challenge' every time... When it works he generally has Bannan close to him, taking advantage of Pelupessy holding up the attacking player and picking up the pieces... It didn't work tonight but I thought he played his part.
