  1. Absolutely dire performance. Just awful to watch. Far worse than a Pulis game, even, where at least it looked like we knew what we were doing, even if it was horribly defensive. This looked like kick and chase, playground nonsense at times. Reliant on mistakes being made by Wigan under the press. No real passing game. And not even a reliable defense - we were lucky in extra time not to ship a goal or three. I appreciate Woodgate is new to this - but after a couple of months as head coach I'd expect to at least be able to see what he's trying to do - but so far it's a more disorganised Pulis long ball game plus pressing, which isn't exactly inspiring.

  3. Hardly. He'll be 31 at the end of the season. This is a cash grab season for him, last of the big contracts. Best he can hope for after this is a 2 year contract on 30% of his current pay at a low/mid table club with no great aspirations.
  4. Same team, largely, as Pulis had. With deadweight shifted. We should still be able to play.
  5. Ayala on a yellow. That's a red waiting to happen.
  6. Definitely filled out Woodgates "thin squad".
  7. And there's the problem. Fletcher still isn't a wide player.
  8. Again with this. All it demonstrates is he gets into positions to score. 1 in 2 last season, in a defensive horrible team, with no support and no creativity. And in 5 hours?
  9. No idea why people think we can do better. This whole 'misses chances' thing of a striker who scored 15 odd goals last season in a Pulis side. Play to his strengths and we've got one of the best in the league.
  10. If you reckon you have a story, how about telling it?
  11. Are you Tony Pulis in disguise? You must have loved last season. Shotton is being judged on his performances since he joined us. He's not a RWB, he never was. He played RB because Pulis likes 4 big CBs across the back. He had a handful of games where he didn't look incompetent at RB, but was largely a liability. He's demonstrated repeatedly that he's incapable of passing the ball out and is capable only of hoofing long balls, which is not how we want to play. He's not a patch on Ayala or Fry as a CB, yet he's being paid £30000 a week. Clayton is not a creative midfielder who needs to be higher up. He's a CDM, he's been that for seasons, and he's good at breaking the game up. That's his role. Howson is filling in at RB, so god knows why you want him moving up. He's not a CDM, either. Britt, with the right support, is a 20 goal a season striker, which is pretty damn good. He's got 15 goals each year with terrible service, or terrible teams or, as per last season, not being picked regularly. There isn't much better in the Championship and certainly nothing we can afford. Seems like you'd only be happy if he was knocking in 40 odd goals a season.
  12. A fringe player at Liverpool who has only ever been on loan versus QPR's best player. Hardly a fair comparison. Edit: not that I think Kent's really possible.
  13. The statement could have been true at the time, to the best of their belief. Things change. Assuming it was Dijksteel, with agreed terms, etc, it may have only slipped when Bristol came in.
  14. Lucky in the end he didn't get his way. Least we got money back on Rhodes.
  15. If he was ever fit for more than 2 weeks straight.
