  1. Exactly, rarely do the players we let leave end up playing above the standing of the football club, most have to leave the club to get actually make a career in the game. Interested to see how Bettinelli gets on, seemed decent a few years back, wonder if a change of club can help him rediscover the form that got him an England call up
  2. Have we ever let a youngster go and then thought 'Wow, that was a mistake!'? James Morrison was probably the biggest, maybe Lee Cattermole for what we replaced him with? Letting Chris Smalling go back down south before he joined Man Utd for millions? But apart from that I think the club have been pretty good at letting academy go
  3. Dunno why Gibbo gets loads of hate, people saying he hasn't played for 2 years but it's not as if he's been constantly injured, or won't be the same player he was a couple of years ago, he's entering his prime as a footballer and anything near £5m would be a steal. Just my opinion but we'd have two solid CBs that would get into most teams in the league.
  4. Manager: Aitor Karanka Assistant: Tony Mowbray GK: Darren Randolph Dimi Victor Valdes DR: Emilio Nsue Cyrus Christie DL: George Friend Fabio CB: Ben Gibson Rhys Williams Daniel Ayala Calum Chambers MC: Marten de Roon Grant Leadbitter Barry Robson Adam Clayton AMR: Stuani Traore AML: Stewart Downing Adomah AMC: Gaston Ramirez Lee Tomlin ST: Britt Assombalonga Patrick Bamford Alvaro Negredo Starting XI: Randolph - Best keeper since Schwarzer. Nsue - Fantastic in promotion season. Friend - No one has
  5. The worrying thing is, we've got no one else to come in and make a massive impact. Apart from Fry we have played everyone in the opening games. It literally is going to be Woodgates ability to get the best out of the group and hopefully that's enough until January where we might be able to get some quality in
  6. How much then? £5m? £10m, £20m? I'm pretty sure if we had the money we wouldn't of replaced the amount of players we lost with £3.5m worth of signings, all from lower leagues.
  7. Honestly think Gibson doesn't have the funds anymore. Nowadays top end Championship players can go for £20million, we didn't even spend that sort of money in the PL! Unfortunately the gravy train has passed us by and once you stop competing off the pitch it's very hard to compete on it. Think the club will view not getting relegated as a success this season
  8. Exactly, I'm not saying I don't want to see attacking football, I just want us to show abit of game management when we do get ahead
  9. Nope I wouldn't, just because we scored 3 goals doesn't mean it was a great result. Attacking wise, it was great to see, but the best teams know how to manage games, and felt after the 3rd goal we should've slowed the game down and seen it out. I want us to get out of the league, but conceding some of the goals we did tonight will make it a hard job. Woodgate said he loved seeing goals tonight, he'll soon get sick of them if we're conceding 3 every game. Like you say, if Britt scores the pen we're probably talking about a win. Still wouldn't disguise how easy it was for Luton to get at us.
  10. Far too open for me. Defence a massive concerning. We looked bright going forward though which was pleasing
  11. Hopefully we can go out and get that much needed no. 10 now.
  12. Todd Kane. Always remember seeing him on old FM/FIFA getting released and ending up at some league 2 basement team. Into the era of 'scraping the barrel'
  13. Well I don't think Pulis wanted him to leave, the guy has talent and if his head was screwed on he'd be a good asset in the Championship and I believe Pulis knew this. From the Gazette previously - 'It's not like Pulis hung Braithwaite out to dry. If anything, it was the direct opposite. He praised "exceptional" Braithwaite repeatedly and talked up his importance. When his form dipped, Pulis was often quizzed on the Danish forward and the frustration in his body language was clear - but he resisted any temptation to throw the player under the bus.' However Braithwaite clearly ha
