    Much like Cyril Chilson

    Preston Away

    I'm disgusted in that second half performance. Can count on one hand the number of times Mowbray left his seat all game. Makes a change when we go 3-2 down??

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    A proper forward thinking manager would have incorporated Rothwell into this team by now, no ifs or buts. And Graham should be first choice striker for the foreseeable. The pivot around where Rothwell/Dack/Holtby can excel. At the very least it's who our best player plays his best football and is most effective playing alongside!

    Lewis Holtby

    David Yelldell is another German we have had here, though I don't believe he made any appearances.

    Hull (A)

    Why do the commentators feel the need to say the full name of JACKSON IRVINE every time?? It's Jimmy Kebe all over again.

    Hull (A)

    Got to say I was dead wrong about the Downing signing. His composure and awareness is a calming influence I feel. Not to mention his vision and the quality of his left foot.

    John Buckley

    How long has Buckley been with the club? Did we pick him up at 16 after being discarded by a PL academy a la Travis and Butterworth?

    Shirt terrible, I like the shorts though.

    Perhaps not quite as much but copying Sir Alex's envelope trick was very cringe worthy (from the same documentary).

    Perhaps also an experienced coach that has played the game professionally too.

    Yes and Travis' energy and box to box play leaves Evans to economise his own stamina, sitting deeper and picking off attacks.

    Rodwell signs

    Rodwell as a libero?
  13. We don't have a left back that overlaps as it stands anyway. It's a big criticism of Bell from me.

    Ben Brereton

    Crikey, never thought I would see the day when that industry pawn's name was brought up on here. The elites truly do have their tentacles everywhere! You've outdone yourself Big Dogg! Social media is here to divide society by bringing the people's debased negative and destructive impulses out behind the safety of a keyboard, amongst other things. It succeeds in taking a huge amount of time, energy and attention from people, contributing to a toxic social climate. It's a key tool used in programming people to be at each others throats and hate each other. Tin foil hat off With regards to Brereton, I concur with the majority in saying he needs a loan to League One or a spell in the U23's. I'm not optimistic he's going to be an effective player for us though, as like many others, I've not seen one significant attribute from the fellow yet.

    Lewis Travis

    Crucial contributions for both goals too, that I couldn't see coming from Evans or Smallwood.

    I think that ultimately it can only be a good thing to see the senior pros committing to new contracts and wanting to play here. Every club needs a good mix 'young and old' so to speak. Besides from the manager and coaching staff, they also carry the message to new arrivals and young players on how they play and conduct themselves at the club. A dressing room without enough of them can easily go sideways fast.

    The enigmatic Jason Lowe vortex

    He was captain of the U-20's in an U-20 tournament where all 3 games were drawn 0-0. He never captained the U-21's (as far as I'm aware).

    The Godlike Genius of Charlie Mulgrew

    Great news, a strong statement from the club.

    Bradley Dack

    No neither do I, his agent may as well link him to Barcelona next time to boost his client's confidence! Second part I agree for sure.

    Bradley Dack

    Ok, it's just in the next breath you said it will give him confidence that a big club are interested in him, but then go on to say they aren't.

    Bradley Dack

    So you don't believe it but Bradley does believe it?

    Bradley Dack

    A player being potentially recalled by his parent club isn't the same though is it. If a player is performing well anywhere, across the whole spectrum, they will be linked with moves away and I don't think Dack is any exception really.

    Conor has looked in great shape this week and Khabib has a history of struggling with weight cuts too. I tend to agree with McGregor getting to him mentally because he left at the earliest conceivable opportunity last night, it was a shame they didn't share the stage though. For me also Khabib doesn't set up his takedowns using clever footwork and striking, but a combination of a fundamental set up and then wading in and grabbing hold of something. It helps when his opponents aren't on their full striking game because they are wary of his stellar grappling game. I feel he will need to be a lot cuter than that against McGregor whose judgment of distance, timing and coupled with his accuracy are as good as anybody in mixed martial arts. That being said I still think he will take him down at some point in the bout. But this is combat sports, anything is possible! I could be talking out of my arse!
