  1. If we don't score with that team we never will. Shock and awe.
  2. Clayton is out of contract and not looking like getting another. Up front is an absolute must. I expect Britt to leave. We need to find someone who can score 20 goals in this league. It's going to be a huge job. I suspect Warnock will help in some way. I reckon Kenyon may get involved once more. I hope Ben Gibson comes back and Moukoudi. I would suspect McNair may get a move and/or Saville. Do we know if Spence definitely has one more year? The more I think about it the harder it gets.
  3. As mentioned Priceoffootball there is a force majeure clause in the 12 point deduction. I would guess Wigan will use that and then half the championship will go into administration. COVID used as a means to wipe out all debts.
  4. Wigan will claim Force majeure for covid and appeal the deduction.
  5. Who's going to spill the beans on the problems behind the scenes that Warnock mentioned in his Gazette interview this morning? Is it transfers? Is it players not wanting to play? Is it next season?
  6. Does anyone think any of the young strikers will get in the squad now? Britt and Fletcher cannot play every minute of every game. I wonder if Walker and O'Neill will get a look in.
  7. Sheff Wed apparently not paid their players. That plus a potential points deduction could really mess with their plans. Players can refuse to play if not paid I believe.
  8. Alex Neil is a great shout. We need a DoF of some sort as well. I hope Gibson is looking at those he looked at last summer before settling on Woodgate. I bet the same people would be interested.
  9. Friend gives us a left footed centre back. I think that is a huge advantage. I'd play this team Stojanovic Coulson Friend Fry Spence Howson McNair Wing Tavernier Britt Fletcher Be interesting when the games start coming thick and fast whether Friend, Shotton etc last the pace. Spence, Coulson, Tav, Wing, Fletcher I think will play pretty much every game in some way. Friend, Shotton, Howson, Britt, Roberts and Johnson will be in and out I think.
  10. Very good news. Perhaps Warnock found his perfect role after 4 days. I wonder if we will hear the same about Friend soon as well.
  11. Aye. Warnock said he will know on Monday. Obviously if someone makes one of them am offer for next season they may decide it isn't worth it. Tough position to be in. Must be hard for clubs and players. The PFA seem to be trying to make it harder for everyone banging on about offers of lower wages. They may end up with no wage at all.
  12. Anyone have any idea if any other players will leave before Thursda
  13. I think his football is better than Pulis. He plays it down to build his reputation and distract I think. He does like a big lad up front but also plays wingers who cause mayhem. Some big calls tomorrow. Will be a good insight into what he sees as our strengths.
  14. I don't think he adds enough in midfield Vs the others. Probs best at right back but I would love to see Spence start there but that is doubtful. Shotton is decent there. Him or Howson equally effective in different ways.
  15. It would be fun if he went for Dyche when he leaves Burnley.
  16. If it's a case of keeping it simple I think the team will be Pears Friend Fry Moukoudi Shotton Roberts McNair Saville Tavernier Fletcher Assombalonga Keep it tight at the back but with pace up top and out wide.
  17. Right decision hopefully just in time. We have decent enough players. Just need someone to coach them. I wonder if he is bringing anyone in with him. Only Leo left now of the whole team.
  18. Saturday to me looked like players who are unfit and don't know what the tactics were. One or the other understandable but not both. Clubs seem to have prioritised fitness or organisation. We seem to have done neither. We can only hope the team for Saturday has the pace and goals to get something from the game. But I have started telling my son how much fun the one season I experienced in Division 3 was. Lots of cool trips if the club can survive relegation.
  19. If you remember back the Gazette did stick their neck out and got banned. Just like at Hull. One of them even lost their job. Rock and hard place. Speak out and lose access. Don't and get it in the neck from people reading your articles. If they have no access they have no stories and no content other than critique. I feel for them. But it does get a bit of a joke sometimes. They have been fairly critical since Saturday though.
  20. I wonder if the team will be kept quiet if close to what he wants to play next week. Especially if they've talked Ayala, Howson and Friend to play. If we can have a left sided centre back in Friend in the team I think it would make a huge difference. Could mean a line up of Stojanovic Friend Moukoudi Ayala Coulson Howson McNair Roberts Wing Fletcher Assombalonga
  21. Wasn't aware we were playing a friendly today. Is that at the Riverside? Any ideas of the team?
  22. It does indeed but I bet Woodgate is having to assume worst case. They are allowed to agree terms with other clubs after 24 June. No way Ayala is playing for us. Would be surprised if Clayton did. Friend probably will as may be offered coach role. Howson hopefully will sign new deal. Johnson may sign back up as low cost option for next season.
  23. I think we will struggle to make 9 sub unless we go to the Under 16s.
  24. I'm guessing until 2pm on 20 June we won't know which of the out of contract players are willing to play. Unless people get snippets of gossip. But out of excitement here's my possible team. 4-1-3-2 or 4-2-3-1 Stojanovic Coulson Spence Moukoudi Fry Saville McNair Roberts Wing Fletcher Assombalonga Pears Tavernier Wood Nmecha O'Neill Morrison Hackney
  25. Agree on that. Next season may never start. Ending this season one way or another needs to happen. But next season can only start when there's either a virus of effective control. The problem with the latter is what if a town or region is in lockdown. It could end up being a right old mess. Especially once the flu season starts and all the vulnerable people start picking up different bugs. This is probably going to be one of the most effective viruses nature has come up with.
