  1. This is a toughie 4 years of rubbing Englands world cup win to the locals who think their nation only need to turn up to win games?? Plus constant references to their defeat being refereed by Nigel he does nothing wrong Owens (yet Wayne Barnes still gets article after article on that forward pass 12 years ago)? Or 3 points Given the attitude of the media and the die hard 'everyone must be in silence for the haka' fan club over here, England domination in Rugby, sod that, Northern Hemisphere dominating rugby for years to come will make life very enjoyable over here :) England lifting the Webb Ellis trophy, whilst Sam Whitelock and co are on NZ90 back from Tokyo would be fantastic for the English immigrants. It's a priority for this Wednesday fan down under
  2. Thoughts are with DorsetOwl at this difficult moment in time for him
  3. Didn't he referee the game against Leeds last season at Elland Road Officiated the game pretty well I thought if it was him
  4. Understandably, Sam Winnall hasn't been the same player since he suffered that nasty injury whilst on loan at Derby. The Sam Winnall before that injury would have buried those chances Whilst he doesn't offer a lot of pace, he's the perfect partner for Fletcher in a 4-4-2. He's not your target man to hold up the ball, he's the sort of player that would be looking for the knock downs etc. He just needs time to get back to where he was, which may or may not happen given a serious injury can completely change a player. I would have said Fletcher would be good for Rhodes given most of Rhodes' goals was when partnering the likes of Gestede and Novak who did the work Fletcher does. However, Rhodes has lost all confidence in his game ever since his move to Middlesbrough
  5. Yep Yorath signed him - he raved about his crossing ability as being a key reason why we bought him. Turner signed Brian Barry Murphy who was just as bad.
  6. Wow, Carlos had no plan B at all??? Must have missed the first game of his tenure when he changed from a 4-3-3 in the first half to a 4-1-2-3-1 in the second half against Bristol City. Obviously not a plan B. Moving Matias and Wallace back, whilst pushing McGugan on to a more advanced attack minded position Or at Cardiff away, 2-0 down at half time. Makes a change taking off Keiren Lee for Gary Hooper going 4-3-3 instead of 4-4-2. Got a deserved point and had chances to win the game Wolves at home, another one where we were 1-0 down and being played off the park the first 15 minutes. Requests a change from playing out of the back given they were targeting Loovens in particular. Bit more direct and quick, we ended up winning 4-1 where it should have been 8 or 9. Blackburn away as well another 2-2 draw changing from being outplayed from 4-4-2 to 4-3-3. Not forgetting when he abandoned his favoured 4-3-3 at the start to going a more 4-4-2/4-4-1-1 after we lost 3-1 at Burnley (where the result was very harsh on us) To think Carlos had no plan B in his first season is like saying one of our best managers we've had was someone who oversaw a 3-0 defeat to Tranmere Rovers where Enoch Showumni scored. Or believing that Geoffrey Sheard paid his TV bill in advance
  7. Aaah sorry, I was talking about the side that finished 8th or 9th in his first season, which got close to the play offs
  8. Wee bit harsh there Whelan, Brunt, Bougherra and Simek were excellent players who were starting to show their full potential. Unfortunate Majid went to Charlton but hey, even he admitted in an interview somewhere he regretted that move looking back. Had Simek not picked up that nasty injury at Palace, he like Whelan and Brunt would have been a regular premier league player. That injury ruined his career. Then you had the vastly underrated Deon Burton who's intelligence on the football pitch was second to none, plus we bought in Steve Watson who showed the experience we required. That side showed you don't need superstars to play good football, just sensible additions. Don't think it was a poo side at all. The next season was ruined at the start when we swapped Steven Maclean for Francis Jeffers. Brian Laws wasn't happy at all about that
  9. Or threaten them with a trip to an area where there is a huge Seagull colony
  10. Is this the same Tony Pulis that completely destroyed West Bromwich Albion? You know, took a side from top 10 to relegation, producing some fabulous performances such as going 5-3-2 away against 10 men Huddersfield, yes that's right 10 men If there are Wednesday fans on here that are wanting Pulis, yet called for Carlos to be sacked because of his football - well enjoy what's coming to you. I mean go and have a watch of their play off attempt against Aston Villa. You think our spineless performance was bad against Huddersfield - just take a look at that one then. Here we go, one nil down after the first leg so next up, second leg at Villa Park. Pulis lines up with one striker on the pitch and the Boro have zero shots on target. They need to score at least one to take it to extra time and two to go through. If you are happy with that sort of approach to a play off match, well, can't really say anything more. No wonder why Boro fans were so angry after that game
  11. What's Jack Charlton up to these days? Or Howard Wilkinson?
  12. Wolves may disagree about Portuguese style football getting out of the division. We coul be agreeing with them had we played that style, not Scotland style against Germany, Brazil etc in the second play off attempt/season.
  13. Stevenage Borough was my last away game. I left after they made it 4-0 with a couple of others. Jokingly said to them to put money on us getting promoted To this day, those words haunt me. Thank you Dave Jones
  14. Bar the Hartlepool United away game, every single performance under Alan Irvine Same with Turner bar the 2-1 away win at Portsmouth and the 7-2 at Burnley Special inclusions to the 4-0 drubbing we received at Old Trafford where it could and should have been triple that (relegation season) plus nearly every single away game under Megson.
