    On a more serious note, if Randolph did end up being sold, would people be comfortable with Mejias as first choice for the coming season?  I think he was first choice in Cyprus so he is coming off the back of regular football.  Just a hypothetical question, no reason to think it will be the case of course.

    I actually think we'd have been 15-18 points worse off without Randolph last year. He saved us, literally, so many times.

    Mejias is fine for a backup, but he's not good enough to be our No 1. The opposition just target and bully him as he can't catch or punch crosses.

  2. If 433 turns out to be Woodie's preference, it feels like we're a few players off a decent team:

    ------------------ Randolph ------------------
    -- ??????? --- Ayala ---- Fry --- ??????? --
    ------ Howson --- McNair --- Wing -------
    --- ???????  ----------------- Tavenier  ---
    ------------------ Fletcher--------------------

    I'd sell Britt to fund the players we need to pull off whatever Woodie's vision is.

    Ayala/Flint aren't amazing, but should be good enough at this level to partner Fry.

    Keane isn't going to allow any 'miserable so-and-sos' so I can't see Braithwaite featuring. I'd rather develop Tav in that position.

  3. Woodie is saying all the right things; promoting youth, attacking football, honesty with transfer budgets. All the things we've been asking for.

    There's a clear lack of experience in the appointments, but what the hell, we'll be giving it a go and come the first match of the season the Riverside will have a buzz about it again.

  4. Just have a feeling Jokanovic will come off and be announced on Monday June 3rd.

    He got Watford and Fulham promoted, so why not us!

    Woody as #2, giving him a few more attempts to pass his badges ?

  5. Can we all spare a thought for Roary the Lion who would be on the dole


    Really? Would our club mascot need to become a can of tangy refreshing beverage for contractural reasons?


    All the Red Bull clubs have red bull as a mascot and all the club logos feature the two red bulls.


    I’d like their investment and strategy but I don’t think I could stomach a logo change.

  6. New low for Pulis today, reverting to type and throwing the game away.


    We just have to write this season off now.


    Even if we make the playoffs, we’ll be dire.


    If by some miracle we get promoted, we’ll be dire for another season and then relegated.


    New direction from the club is needed urgently.


    Not that it will happen, but I actually think if we made a managerial change now (an uplifting Solskjark type appointment), we would have a good chance at the playoffs.

  7. I think the worry is that pulis has dropped Britt for hugill before this season when he doesnt score. And he has a history of changing systems when he has the players he likes available and has an excuse (ie the 0 0 draw).



    I hope that he doesnt, but he certainly has form.


    A good summary of the obstanant baffoon currently in charge!


    14 more games left with Pulis...
