  2. I tend to agree Best league in the world, IMHO mind
  3. The morning after the night before 27 years ago we sadly trudged out of Hillsborough after suffering a heartbreaking 1-0 defeat at the hands of Leicester City in a cruel cup final extra time defeat Losing the league cup final at Hillsborough was so painful, but what made it worse, as we silently made our way back to our cars/buses to get home when our thoughts would instantly drift back to what should have been, back to the first game at wembley when we were just 90 odd seconds away from winning the trophy outright at wembley a week, or so earlier After a goaless 90 minutes Ra
  4. From BBC report on match tonight Southampton were forced into a line-up change when goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu pulled up with an apparent Achilles tendon injury during the warm-up and manager Russell Martin curiously decided that veteran third-choice Alex McCarthy should leapfrog Joe Lumley - named on the bench - to start. 🤣
  5. Their owner is an attention seeking knobhead. "I'm going to appoint the first female manager in English men's football, why can't people be more like me?". Had a major press conference announcing her time in charge. Gave dozens of interviews across the media bigging himself and the club up for it. All done for publicity before replacing her 2 weeks later, after she'd managed one friendly, by a Horseman.
  6. To be fair at the 1st of April they were 12 points behind Leeds albeit with 2 games in hand. They were in it but a massive outsider in similar way to Boros pursuit of Norwich, both highly unlikely outcomes at that point of the season. Also add to that I don't think many would have predicted since the 1st Leicester have dropped 6 points, Ipswich 7 and Leeds 8.
  7. Southampton were always still in it but had 2 games in hand so looked miles off.
  8. Yrs I think you could be right there
  9. Wow just goes to show how mad this league can be. It is mad that all 4 teams still have automatic promotion in their own hands. I do feel the team/teams that fail to go up automatically out of the top 3 will fail in the playoffs.
  10. Why? They aren't a bad club are they?
  11. fingers crossed leeds bottle job it on monday and saints win at the weekend. i would LOL so hard. saints play leicester on tuesday. if they win those two games they would be on 90 points. if results work for them they could be top. that would be interesting.
  12. The world can breathe a sigh of relief, Forest Green Rovers have been relegated from the English Football League.
  13. Could be tricky to get hold of Championship play off final tickets?
  14. Southampton winning their game in hand. That's Preston out of the race and Southampton have snuck back in to the automatic promotion race. They still have Leicester and Leeds to play.
  15. To be fair to our recruitment I think we have had a few good windows even tho they seem to get a lot of stick. Out of all the signings this year if say there’s only Silvera that seems below par. but he has come from Auz so we may see a better player next year when he’s had a season behind him. Greenwood hasn’t been amazing but he’s young and could improve IF we sign him permanent Thomas hasn’t looked great but hasn’t had a pre season with us and a run of games so hard to judge. Gilbert hasn’t featured enough to judge him either. keepers both solid enough VDB looks
  16. Fair play to Ipswich they deserve their place in the sun this season.Next season a totally different story. They will be annihilated.Ditto to most of the teams promoted.
  17. They have just had £100m invested. I believe that a fair amount of it is for infrastructure but next season their only limits will be P&S.
  18. Why would Ipswich be able to financially out compete us?
  19. end to domestic i-follow as well, although if anyone even used that I imagine now tv will simply take over that. the international i-follow service will remain, so if you use iptv its still going to work
  20. its thought they went over ffp to come up but I can't see any record of any charges ever being levied due to the disconnect between the 2 sets of leagues. for them to have a points dock waiting they would need to get charged and either agree/settle with the case or the EFL to win in court Sheffield United have a points deduction waiting for them, relating to them no paying their bills on time, they got sanctioned in the EFL but after the suspended points deductions were issued still had late payments
  21. https://www.mfc.co.uk/news/2024/april/16/sky-sports-to-become-the-home-of-the-efl-from-2024-25/ Sorry if this has been posted but interesting changes: 1. All opening day, midweek and final day games will be screened live. 2. All bank holiday games including boxing day, NY day and easter weekend will be shown live 2. All Carabao Cup games screened live 3. 5 fixtures every weekend from Championship shown live.
  22. I watched his highlights, looks a lot like O’Brien in the way he plays, his passing doesn’t look anything worse than any of our midfielders, but he also doesn’t stand out as an exceptional passer. He’s more of a ‘busy’ player and pops up in different areas of the pitch. I think he’s a player Carrick would play tbf, though he’s definately more of a #8 and looks like he’d get knocked off the ball a lot.
  23. It's tough to find loads of stats for the Danish Superliga to be fair. But the point I was responding to wasn't whether he'd improve us, it was whether Carrick would play him, and it seems like he's plenty capable enough on the ball to fit the bill. I have no idea if he'd improve us. His numbers that I can find look pretty good, and he's broken into the first team at the age of 20 in Denmark, so there's clearly something about him at least. But his passing numbers are good, which was the relevant bit.
  24. Aren’t Villa still due a points deduction if they come back down.
  25. It's the top tier. They're just playing in the relegation scrap. The division gets cut in half with a third of the season left like in Belgium. The Danish league actually get's a lot of praise for being relatively high paced, tactically good and technically much better that the other scandinavian leagues. It often takes foreign players a bit of time to get used to it. Reckon it's very much comparative to the championship. Boro certainly wouldn't win the league and I think Copenhagen would have a very good chance of getting out of the Championship. Players like Emil Riis and Pukki both looked p
  26. It probably needs more context to make it a useful stat but in isolation, it's not a stat that makes me think he's a player that would improve us.
