  1. Certainly smells a bit this one. Has got owlstalk in a spin though
  2. We know we are rubbish though. So either: 1. We press and win the ball back, do absolutely nothing with it and lose possession, pass counter restarts. 2. They cut through us like butter in 9 passes and it's a goal, missed chance etc. Can't read much into it when you've got us, Barnsley, Wigan and a few smaller teams in Spanish & Italian leagues in there too!
  3. I can understand the harsh tag and no I haven't watched him regularly but that's partly my point. Why haven't several managers thought he's been good enough for regular cameos, yes he's come on a handful of times but not regularly and he is 20. No doubt he will have a career I just don't think it's going to be at this level or with us, no shame in that however the spaffing of some fans over him is unwarranted.
  4. None of our strikers will ever score loads when they have to generate all the power on the floated crosses....unless they have necks like Eddie Hall. We need to improve our supply first before judging who's trying to stick it in the net. We have scored a couple from crosses recently but that's inevitable seeing as we probably put in 5 billion crosses a match.
  5. He's not good enough. Sorry to disappoint, I'd love him to be but he won't make it for us unless he has to play through relegation or money troubles. Do people realise he's not 16, he's 20 and still looks like he's in primary school. Your top top short midfielders have all been at least slightly stocky, hunt is a pipe cleaner. He's come from a second division academy that doesn't have a track record of producing top players.... Our last best talent is failing in the Belgian 2nd division for gods sake. He will be a professional footballer. He will probably end up at a Lincoln, a Rochdale, a Donny etc etc. Which is not to be sniffed at. But please let's not get excited and believe he's going to be exceptional. There's a reason nobody of note is tracking him. Nobody has played him regularly. Now compare that to Bellingham. One will be a brilliant footballer at the top level. One will have a lower league career. If he was going to make it he would have made some sort of impact 2 or 3 years ago. Sorry but just realistic, in my opinion of course. That being said he has much better application than your established pro Adam Bleach
  6. Not even bothered at all yet.... Though I know at 2.55 it'll be a different story. Atty to peak in form just at the right time... Again?
  7. That's me and I held back with giving him some stick, but jeez my head has gone for a stroll tonight. That was utterly embarrassing from every one of them for the whole 90, just so happens it was bannan that was responsible for a bit of play that sums up the last 6 weeks. They arent trying, they are in a extremely privileged position getting paid extremely handsomely.... Its about time they were told that its not good enough from the fans. Especially since he's the one who gives it out for 90 minutes Tuesday Saturday Tuesday. Unforgivable
  8. Why play football, or any sport, or enter into any competition if you don't ultimately want to win. They're still getting paid, so surely the motivation is try to win every match. Earn your next deal elsewhere if your not getting one here. If you bagged 25 goals there more chance of a fat prem contract than there is if you got 3 or 4.
  9. Has Mammadov sorted his cash flow problems yet? Heard Geoff Sheard is without a club too. I think your probably not far off what DC would ask as well for the club. Which for a money hemorrhaging, stagnant club is ridiculous and probably the reason why we won't get any serious offers. Would the muck king pins at West ham fancy a northern club if they get bought out. 10 year season tickets and a guaranteed nosh now on sale.
  10. What's the upper bracket? 100 or 1,000
  11. Training mid season is ALOT different to training pre season. Pre season you bust a ball to get your fitness back up. Mid season your playing once or twice to week which will maintain this. You won't see too much full throttle training during the season otherwise players will burn out. They'll obviously still do enough to maintain fitness but will focus more on positioning, tactics, set pieces, attack v defence etc than out and out fitness. Can't see anything to moan about.
  12. Opened in twitter and translated.... Quite a promising thread that. Sounds like the only thing holding him back from being a success even in serie A is the fact that he's a head case. Should have the required quality, just hope he doesn't continue to get sent off every 3 games. Let's aim for every 6 to start with
  13. We're clearly a counter specialist side. At home we have to play in front of the opposition, sitting quite high and try and unlock a flat back 8 whilst all the time giving bannan the ball. Away from home we sit deeper, allowing teams the ball in our half as actually we are pretty good at defending our box... Balls in behind we struggle with, same for most teams I guess. We need to get in a few tricker players with really good close control for Hillsborough. Our wingers are good athletes but have yet to see one of them take 3/4 on in a mazy run. Need some more nous at home as they way we play, and players at our disposal, is set up to play away.
  14. All these people hoping for new owners Chansiri won't sell a reserve on 30/40k a week let alone the whole football club!! He'd want a chunk of profit without doubt. Also the person saying if Charlton are attractive then so should we be too. Little matter of a missing London postcode there (or a Manchester one). We're stuck on this merry go round for a while I think
