“Bomber Harris”

Amoral historical figure. Obsessed with shortening the war by terrifying German civilians into submission by bombing cities. Strategy largely failed as Germans fought on well after the point of hopelessness. Probably committed war crimes in deliberately using incendiaries on civilian population and in particular targeted the strategically irrelevant town of Dresden (one of the most anti-Nazi cities in the Reich) in 1945 when the war was already practically won. 

 

“Kadeem Harris”

Highly talented and pacey winger. Filling a gap in the SWFC that has been evident since at least 2005. Hugely impressive first two matches and looking set to be signing of the season.

Bruce has left a decent legacy despite being here for a few months. I have to give him that. 

He is brilliant at spotting players along with his scouting team. If you can spot good players theres a good chance you'll become a good manager.

 

All the signings we've made under Bruce and since his left seem to be good ones. Shows how much improved our scouting is now.

 

I can barely believe how we got this lad for free. Cardiff fans must be kicking themselves at letting him go.

Crazy how we’ve neglected wingers for years, like we’ve been reading from a different footballing manual

Chopper Harris is much better.

Like everyone has been saying...he’s just what we’ve needed for a long time, with him and Murphy pushing the midfield it can only be a good thing........for all those who thought they had a given for a place will have to up there game big time now....we have great competition for places now ....UTO

You'd expect to pay at least 5m for that lad. A steal.

That Barnsley right back will need the mother of all ice baths after the run around he gave him, absolute beast

 

He moved onto the other side in the second half, after they made a sub. Probably dizzy! :biggrin:

If he’s well endowed he could be Chopper Harris.  

Or if not Wee Willie Harris. :ph34r:

Tried to bomb by daylight, our bombers were hacked out of the skies. Switched to bombing by night, could not hit precision targets (A bomb that landed within 5 miles of it's target was considered accurate) Area or carpet bombing was the only way we could hurt the Germans.

 

80,000 plus British and Commonwealth bomber crew members lost their lives in the conflict.

We got him on a free. Still trying to figure this out. He cost us £0

What was Murphy like in comparison to Harris? 

 

Faster, but not as skilful.

 Bruce fair play to him identified the gaps/ needs of the squad many of us have highlighted over the last few years. We've been crying out for more pace for years,  pace makes a huge difference and in itself can change a game. 

 

The great thing about Harris and Murphy they're not just pacey but appear to have good all round attacking qualities too.

 

If we can keep them both fit I'm very excited for the rest of the season.

Murphy and Harris were brilliant today but I also thought Odubajo and Palmer weren’t far off either.

It's nice when you can see all your money on the pitch (wages etc.)

Carlos didn’t like them as they run with the ball or encouraged the long ball over the top and possession was everything to him. It was my main gripe with him along with not wanting any height and steel in midfield. Its taken so long to undo some of the carbon copy recruitment and it’s been difficult seeing other sides like derby Villa and Norwich with fullbacks and wingers causing all sorts of problems but thankfully we’ve got back on a par. 

 

I also think you don’t need to be as good technically to win a game when you’ve got those outlets. Whereas the more continental style you need to be better than most on the ball, which we were, but it died a death.

Don't rewrite history. Nobody criticises the Yanks for bombing the S H I T out of Germany but we criticise our guys for doing it. Nobody complained then when we were fighting to free Europe but now people get all sanctimonious. Yes it was awful but it needed doing.

 

Sorry to get serious on a football thread but I can't let that pass.

Strategic targeting of Germany industry to impede their war effort. Absolutely. 

 

Deliberate targeting of civilians (even in the most anti-Nazi regions like Dresden) with incendiary devices which were designed to ignite fires above shelters so victims would burn to death in their cellars. Not so much. 

 

You shouldn’t adopt Hitlerian methods to beat Hitler particularly when the civilian bombing campaign did very little to aid victory and took men and resources away from other theatres like the Mediterranean.

This is a football forum - 

 

I don’t agree with what you are trying to preach, it was war - casualties happen in War, we won and freed Europe 

 

now back to the football

 

Kareem Harris super signing

Many people lost their lives which of course is horrific and it may not have played a significant part in winning the war. At the time however, it was seen as a necessary evil to contribute to winning the war.

 

Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

 

Not quite as important a subject, but isn’t it great having genuine pace in the team.
