  1. really enjoying Norwich,s destruction of Huddersfield, the movement off the ball and immagination between the half way line and opponents box is brilliant. ironically the area of the pitch where we are pathetic in those two disciplines . what im not enjoying is Lee Hendrie,s input. im certain hes on commision for the amount of times he can cram "really" into the commentary..........i really do
  2. Both Coulson and Spence are etremely limited players and for me, arent solid enough to merit regular starts at this level. theyre basically a left and right version of the same player. none can be classed as anything more than enthusiastic. and both seem to operate tight to the line and are most useful between the 18yd lines, both wet behind the ears higher or lower than these parimeters. along with Bettinelli. Britt, and Akpom id have no issues if we offloaded as none of these offer anything resembling a hope of better things. the latter two dont even seem to have the will to put more effort
  3. Im convinced Warnock will be given first dibs but not convinced he will want another season here. So who next?... at the end of the day one man and one man only will get a say and a casting vote but chances are,given his track record , thats not going to make things better. for me its a lottery and a game of chance. As with picking a striker to net you lots of goals you just have to hope you happen across the perfect fit. im happpy to appoint a totally unknown and hope for that outcome . Bruce Rioch is a prime example , no one had any clue about his abilities as a manager but he did a marvell
  4. Cardiff are everything we dont want to be up against at present, Boro are everything Cardiff want to face. this could be ugly. not wishing that, but im getting prepared for a drubbing . our only hope is a typical boro result. hopefully we can be put out our misery today and stop clinging onto the weird hope of play offs, were nowhere near good enough or ready in truth.
  5. A fter reading through the replies on this thread im still unable to add any half decent suggestions to the questions raisedin the OP. T he main conmclusion going thru my mindis that its thrown up another importantly needed addition in the summer. no-one in the current squad stands out as a serios contender and my personal take on Britt being given it was to try to give him more reason to involve himself in games but it hsnt happened.
  6. i dont think its so much a question of wether Warnock should stay here ,more of ishe really ready to throw himself FULLY into the challenge? because i get the feeling he hasnt fallen completely head over hels with us as he did at cardiff and sheff utd inparticular. hes won me over in my general opinion of him as a manager and arrested the freefall Woody led us into, but theres a lack of total warnock enthusiasm thus far. whoever we go forward with needs more from the board ,more from the players and needs the fans on board from the start. weve climbed a few rungs of the ladder from bottom
  7. i agree with recent posts, i didnt react to this defeat to brentford as a humiliating defeatdespite shipping 4 goals which always seems a serious ly poor deficit verging on thrashing. the transfer window was encouraging in that we seemed to get things done more clinically than the usual . im actually happy that we have enough options to shape a half decent promotion chasing team now but still feel we need to add a central defender and another keeper. oh and a striker that hits a purple patch wouldnt go amiss either, god knows weve had more than our fair share of prolific strikers that have mal
  8. ill be watching as always since around 1984. isnt the two teams i was hoping for tbh as i was rooting for th Bills in the latter stages. the one side i dont like in the NFL is the pats and i put that down to just being fed up with seeing them win almost every year, tbh i thought the dislike spread to Brady for the same reason but hes won me over this season as i have a soft spot for the buccs. Mahomes is beginning to irritate me as i can see him developing ito that serial winner category that turns me againt players or teams so i wiill probably be cheering on tampa tonight despite brady
  9. and here i am watching sky sports offering this weekend......OH GOODY ...Watfod....again. ps added moan , wonder what minute they get a pennna and deeney scores it......amazingly 28 of his last 35 goals have been pennas pps less amazingly manyoo have had 30 pennas awarded since fernandez joined them .
  10. despite reading and hearing that this season is so strange and unpredictable from so many outlets , for me the championship , positional wise is pretty much going to plan. i thought at the outsetthat norwich and swansea would be the two probable auto teams with a decent sizes bunch of usual suspects in the play off mix, US not included. so i cant quite get too excited with the term play off rivals . having said that, its a great bonus to be involved. some teams likecardiff derby, forest, and preston have dissapointed whreas we and reading ,stoke and barnsley have overachieved expectations
  11. hold the bus, i actually agree with Humpty about Morsy. even though hes been a tad diplomatic , I had a general idea from the few games id seen him play for Wigan that he was a Clayton type midfielder but he also could take control of the midfield, but so far here ,hes faded into oblivion and just seems to be ONE MORE of the"nothing" players we currenly seem to be assembelling within the squad. players that dont inspire, dont have an identity and that you cant label as anything otherthan making up the numbers . unfortunately we are overflowing in central midfield with this species then fur
  12. tbh im totally confused as to whether the match is going ahead at this time. i hears it was off due to a virus in our camp but at present its scheduled for a 6 30 pm kick off, later than the original 3.oo time. i can sympathise with the FA in one way ,as they will be pressured to get the ties sorted and next round fixtures lined up faster than normal years due to the shortened season and the 10 day quarantine period is a big problem in doing so, hence teams in our position may be forced into a corner of having to field second string based starting 11s. it would help if we actually had names fo
  13. DUNNO WHETHER THERES ANY warnock influence in the strikers were linked with but they dont inspire me not that i will be in any way given any say in them. ivecome round to accepting britt isnt gonna suddenly bang goals in left right and centre for us and im in agree ment with many others with his failings , so yep i accept and realise he may be moved on soon. but please replace him with a more eciting prospect than the recent names mentioned.
  14. very quiet on incomings talk other than revamping of Bolasie interest. i,d be also keeping tabs on a couple of top quality players currently not getting gametime at this level, Puskas at reading and Tom Ince. outgoings are more pressing imo and id be inclined to bite the bullet on three ,in particular which could land us maybe ,with luck 20 m . Britt is still a striker with a reputation at this level, albeit a dwindling one due to the boro influence. id also sell Saville and if there genuinely is interest at 5m or thereabouts id let Spence go too. i honestly believe Fletcher is a
  15. and tbf Grimsbyboro DID SAY RELATIVRLY.
  16. yet another in a long long list of crazy sackings at Watford. made worse for the fact its a recurring thing at this trigger happy club but even more alarming is that its also not the first time that a manager that had the audacity to not pick Troy Deeney in the starting line up has been dushed out the treatment of choice. the Bilic sacking was contencious but this latest Watford slaying is crazy and dispicable.
  17. yes, as already stated, another tough game in store which leads me to a point of opinion. it sems we have had a real tough run of fixtures and continue doing so , but in hindsight its more a result of how badly the woodgate experience (gibson doesnt go un noticed here) affected us fans psychologically in mindset. whereas in previous championship campaigns we viewed upcoming fixtures with a mindset similar to the likes of norwich,derby,cardiff fans, i.e those with top 6 ambitions , this year were seeing things through similar eyes as the likes of rotherham, barnsley and the likes, those who exp
  18. iwas thinking that the way the fixtures have panned out ,weve had a realy tough run of games so far,which makes our points haul look impressive, but then after re assessing things maybe what happened to us last season particularly has sub-conciously made us see certain fixtures as tougher than in previous years. this one is normally what youd consider a hard game with two evenly matched sides but they are in a place we were in last term, we ,on the other hand are gathering belief as games go by so im hoping and edging towards predicting a win but i also genuinely believe they will suddenly wa
  19. another good result and a competent performance. how nice to see us appear in the top section when adressing the table. the key word there is competent and that for me is the reason we are what we are under warnock are where what we were under woody. one is a competent manager the other incompetent,which in turn transferes to the players and the set up. individually fry, dijksteel, tavernier, and mcnair are far better than last season not in ability but in the fact they do the basics correctly. betinelli, morsy, halland akpom have fitted in well, roberts and browne have given a tiny bit
  20. glad someone else cottoned on to ths simple solution.
  21. if theres an opposite to "HE,S WON ME OVER" that where i stand with herr gibson.
  22. SD, JUST WALOW IN THE PRIDE YOU HAVE THAT YOUR TEAM IS ACTUALLY THERE AT THAT STAGE, THERES ABSOLUTELY NO disgrace in the result ladt night or any further beatings, look at us for eample, we still proudlt lok bavk at our uefa year even though we were thrashed in the final. its a remarkable achievement for a scandinavian club to reach that level in the competitition with the current state of football where the richest or biggest clubs dominate financially and tbj its refreshing to see a minnow doing well. Celic are apprently a colossus of a club that won thier countrys league TEN times in a r
