  1. I think it would be great to get one of the "tough guys" from the North Stand and one of the away teams Stone Island crew together on the pitch for three rounds of white collar boxing.
  2. Glad in these situations that the FA don't replay the fixture. It would be typical of us to play the game again with 11 Men for the full 90, only to end up losing 0-6
  3. Am I right in saying that Humphreys was singled out by Marco Van Basten after a pre season game as a potential world beater.
  4. Despite the additional weight, I bet he still stands out as one of the better players. The Vets league I play in has has a few ex pros from Cambridge, Peterborough, Lincoln and Leicester, most are well over weight and complete wee wee heads but really stand out with how simple they make the game look.
  5. I couldn’t remember, but have just looked it up. Ryan Jones v Everton in April 1994, we won 5-1. I’d seen us away at all the London grounds and Wembley before I finally made it up to watch a home game. It shows how good my memory is, I have absolutely no recollection as to who he is or that he ever played for Wednesday.
  6. Either way, it's a poo free kick to concede. He curls it in the top bins, take your hat off, fair play. This was just like the kind of shots I give our keeper when I'm warming up pre match on a Sunday Morning - VVank!
  7. It looked like two people playing FIFA who had never even picked up a controller before, let alone played the game. Button bashing and hoping someone scores.
  8. Two horrendous performances, we made Colchester look like Brazil 1970. If I’m right the Leyton Orient game saw debuts from Madine and Reda.
  9. I’d agree, although as we’re all aware, getting rid of potentially bad apple footballers on decent contracts isn’t overly easy. Meanwhile, if results and performances on the pitch are going backwards, our notoriously patient and understanding fan base are going to be gunning for someone. I’m not for one second sticking up for Jos but I’m guessing he tried to stick to his methods and fell out with the likes of Westwood and Hutchinson. There is a substantial difference in players egos the further up the leagues you go and this is my biggest worry. That said, I’d much rather we went down this route compared to the likes of Pulis.
  10. Mate, if you want to stay in a job the results matter. If the players down tools, you’re then one staring down the end of a barrel. So either way, it’s a potential no win situation. The best managers (in all walks of life) adapt their management style based upon the different characters they’re required to deal with.
  11. This is exactly my concern, although you’d expect any half intelligent coach to realise this and tailor their approach accordingly. Time will tell, but it’s clearly something Jones is up against at Stoke.
  12. It's obvious isn't it? DC did this purely to wee wee off Steve Gibson.
  13. Totally agree, we'll all end up sounding like Alan Irvine going on about coaching badges.
