  1. Yesterday
  2. Sorry, I meant the fact that he only played the once since the restart and when he did it was in midfield, more than the early recall, although I suspect the fact he now isn't here is somehow linked to the first part of that.
  3. Yeah, I guess that's the case.
  4. I don't think we can afford the luxury of buying damaged goods and hoping they come good. With our track record they will undoubtedly crash and burn here the same as they did elsewhere. With Warnock we know what he is capable of and its not much of a gamble or stretch of the imagination if we see a remarkable turnaround in results next season achieved with a squad assembled at a sensible cost and salary basis which doesn't risk the future of the club.
  5. It’s all academic really as Warnock is a certainty, if we stay up. However, personally I think someone like Marco Silva could be a good appointment. I think he’s a good manager but he didn’t do well at Everton so his reputation has taken a hit, which could give us a chance to hire him. Short of hiring a novice an hoping they come good I think we have to try and hire someone who is currently devalued and hope they prove themselves again with us.
  6. good points....as I said it could just be me.....and at the moment, it could be what we need....
  7. Not exactly Warnocks type of CB is he.
  8. I think Hughton is like Karanka in terms of style of play. Sets his teams up well but dont think they overly boring to point of Tony Pulis. As far as saying he not achieved anything beyond championship i think that is harsh on him and arrogant for us to not think he a long term solution. Bottom line is we are championship (for now) and Hughton has achieved two promotions with two separate teams from championship. He then went on to keep one of them teams in the PL for 2 consecutive seasons, departing after keeping them up. So right now not only would I snap your hands off for Chris Hughton but i would be very happy with his appointment
  9. Why are people even talking about Nigel Pearson he will keep Watford in the premiership and be their manager. Hence isn't available
  10. In his defence, both were made to appear to be available, had a good pedigree and were creative players which we were desperately needing. Similarly to how Gaston added the spark to our attack, I feel that they would have done the same. Not smashing it, but enough to keep up up. The money was there if we wanted to get them surely? If we offered 7.5m for Gestede and 4.5m for Guidieora couldn’t the recruitment team have put more on them coming? All ifs and buts of course. I agree with the Bamford signing as that was in mind of going down. But the other two were just disasters.
  11. Maybe it's just me, but if people didn't like TP, what exactly is different with Hughton...he loves giant centrebacks....his sides score very few goals, and he has never really achieved anything beyond the Championship.....not saying he wouldn't be a safe pair of hands....but not really the future....although he was one of Big Jack's "Irishmen", so maybe he learnt something from the master
  12. possibly initiated by St.Etienne as French season starts in just over a month ....and as they were near the bottom of the League last season, they might have decided to call him back....but just conjecture
  13. I would also say that Moukoudi would have probably been in my team as well, had he still been here. No idea what has gone on there, all seems odd to me.
  14. Wing is a tricky one. I would only ever play him in an advanced position myself, which is why he's in there behind the front two, but could easily give Roberts a go there instead. I'm just not sure if Roberts has ever played there before?
  15. Lol, gotta be worth a try 🙂
  16. Both of your line-ups are decent, would definitely have Coulson and Tav in, Wing is always capable of pulling a goal out, but there's times you have to look twice to see if he's still on the pitch, the game just seems to pass him by.
  17. We'd be sure to win with 22 players, many of them clones.
  18. Would like to see some version of: Pears/Stojanovic Pears/Stojanovic Spence/Dijksteel* Fry Shotton Coulson Spence/Dijksteel* Fry Shotton Coulson McNair Howson Tavernier McNair Howson Tavernier Roberts Assombalonga Fletcher Wing/Roberts Assombalonga Fletcher *Depending on fitness/sharpness I think we're more likely to see some version of what we saw on Saturday but with maybe the odd change or two.
  19. Both Villa and Bournemouth have suddenly woken up today. Perhaps we could do the same... We probably need 4 points from remaining 3 games and I'm not at all confident of them.
  20. Completely self inflicted implosion from Leicester there. All 4 goals were from embarassing mistakes. You'd expect they'll miss out on the top 4 now, they'll be praying that Man City's ban is upheld.
  21. I wonder why Coulson isn't getting a look in at the moment. I would have always had him ahead of Johnson in every aspect of the game. We need to find a way of playing a more passing game. Roberts was very disappointing last time out. I think Wing, Tav, Coulson, Fletcher and Assombalonga all need to start. And I think Pears needs bringing back Pears Friend Fry Shotton Coulson Spence Howson Tavernier Fletcher Wing Assombalonga
  22. Hughton is beyond us financially and wouldn't come to a bottom end Championship or League 1 club. He turned down others because he only wants to manage in Premier league.
  23. The only thing I can think of with regard to our last 2 home performances, is perhaps its the thought of the crowd getting on their backs
  24. Karanka would make a good DoF, he’s football through and through and just as obsessive about detail as bielsa. If I was Gibson and had to ‘hand the reins’ over to someone I trusted then Karanka would be up there. Either him or Mowbray I feel would be equally as good. Obviously I have no idea if they have any flaws that we don’t know about. Only thing that would worry me is karankas obsession with signing Bojan and Jesé, maybe he could have got a tune out of them who knows, but looking back I think they would have been disastrous signings to try and keep us up.
  25. We need a min of 3 points and I don’t care how or were we get them. It’s s@#t or bust time so I’m hoping for some luck and very hard work to pay off.
  26. All gone Pete tong for Leicester. Conceding two and a red card in 5 minutes!
