  1. I'd rather be in league 1 with an owner that actually cares about the club than sell our soul to an energy drink company. Some of you need to seriously think about what would happen to us if we got an awful owner in. Without Steve there wouldn't be a club now, we would have died in 1986
  2. I also heard he's signing a new deal
  3. I've been off the forum for quite a while, mainly due to having a baby (not me, my wife!) But I felt compelled to come back and join this debate. This man is the worst thing to happen to our club in years. I listened to talksport yesterday and as much as I dislike him, Adrian Durham nailed it by saying football would be glad of us missing out on the playoffs because of pulis's football. In truth, we were never ever good enough for the top 6 this year but that's where I get the most frustrated - we should have been a top 6 side by some margin with the players we have. Traore bailed him out last season, by his unpredictability we got past teams that this year we didn't.the absolute farce in the transfer market - selling bamford, bringing in hugill and van la parra seemingly there just to train with us summarises just how inept he is. We've played 5 at the back at home all season - we are not a side battling relegation. The fact that he just insisted on this formation and the approach when we went on our losing streak is just insane. And yes, he might have made significant financial savings but that is not what he's employed to do as his primary role - he's here to win us games and he's just not done it enough. I honestly cannot fathom what could possibly keep him here next season, and if he stays we are plunging back into the Strachan days all over again
  4. Laughable when members people drop in limited information looking for some attention, and then go offline and not reply Ham_chop you a complete attention seeker.... Back your information up in your original posts. If you have information then share it, if you don't then you may as well not post.... Complete wind up merchant and in all honesty you look like a complete tit to me Or maybe the Sharing of finer details compromises someone? I'm simply giving a heads up. Call me a tit, wum all you like pal, I'm big enough and ugly e oughto take it. I'm just sharing something to give a warning. I thought this forum was for sharing info? I'm just not prepared to shaft a mate. So I'll go leave it
  5. It's definitely not George, my profile picture was previously bamford. It's the club. That said player is potentially going to that's the hard to swallow bit
  6. WHY WHEN WHO It's not nice to digest
  7. Theres a big departure on the horizon
  8. Are people honestly moaning about being 1-0 up? Just try and enjoy it ffs
  9. I fu**ing hope not! Sysyem did not work and teams knew how narrow we were so let their full backs bomb forward at every opportunity. For me we play at our best in a 4-4-2 formation, although we don't play this formation until we are up against it. Monk isn't brave enough to start with this formation We started 442 last week against Fulham and couldn't get near them. We can't play that system
  10. Birmingham will be top 6 this season, easy.... Crazy deals they are doing
  11. Yes if he was in the premier league I could see him selected in front of maguire. I might get shot down but I think Maguire is a better player than Gibson
  12. First time in a long time I enjoyed it last night. Paddy was sensational and Assombalonga is a proper striker. Kudos to Gestede too, a bit of an unsung hero last night by all accounts
  13. The Gazette are doing a good job of playing the victim here - are they trying to turn sections of the fans against the club? No need to put this out there in the style they did and the bridges are being burned here. They could have dealt with this internally and tried to resolve it without airing dirty laundry the Monday before a season starts...
  14. Factor in an assumed 4 mil for Gaston and take another 7mil off for Fletcher and you're around the £24m mark. Not bad business really
  15. Absolutely delighted to have Howson, he's likely to be out no.10 next year if you picked a squad today. Christie, don't know a lot about him but he's a full international so I'm pleased with that. Just a couple of wingers and a forward now - then maybe one or two to leave and we're about ready for the season
  16. I CANNOT wait for Leeds at home this year, it's going to be some atmosphere now
  17. This might be a question already answered but a lot of people keep talking about gibson and his desire to keep agnew in. Is there any hard evidance of this or is it all here say?
  18. Monk won't go to Sunderland. It's clear that it's a powerplay from his agent to push the deal along.
  19. guys....it's just a kit. I like it, for what it's worth
  20. It's a shame that it's not worked out for Fewster and Maloney - both always looked very good prospects. Mondial was raved about in parts. Like Bryn Morris before them, these hotly-tipped prospects seem to not take that step up, it's a shame for them that they can't break into our squad.
  21. I just don't see how we payed £12m for him. for me, he's no better than Clayton or Leadbitter, apart from popping up with a few goals. I just don't get the hype. seems like a good bloke but I think that money could have been better spent.
