  1. Agree. Ward has been at fault on a number of occasions. He gave the ball away for the penalty as well didn't he ?
  2. I would hope we don't have 40 + admin people to start with . but I'm sure there are people on here more expert than me.
  3. Portsmouth will be around mid table, see no reason why they would be. Portsmouth recent success was on the back of them very much so spending money they never could pay back.
  4. Today's game is on paddy power. Just need a balance/ bet on the match
  5. Good point. I would play many players before I would consider Mahoney in our first time. Decent substitute but has never impressed when he has started. It is an unabitious move though.. joining Bournemouth reserves is a poor choice if there is a path to the 1st team good on him. 20 is not young and I don't believe Bournemouth u23 play in premier league 2. He will need to go on loan and I'm not saying he is useless I would have him back but he must have been offered a few £000 extra a week ...
  6. We will be far from compliment. I estimate our wage bill will need to be around 8m for this to be the case. So if this ends up being an official reason for sales it will fly directly in the face of any promises made to Mowbray .
  7. We do and we don't . We need players with the potential to play at a highrer level who have already had some success in league 1 or 2. i don't really see the merit in signing mid table league 1 solid pro , presumed to be nearing 30 that has never actually succeeded. How much was Keith Andrews when we signed him I seem to remember him being over 1m virtually 10 years ago. That's the kind of player we should be trying to pick up .. the best of the league 1 promising talent. More often than not they may have been brought up at bigger team academies.
  8. Time is a funny business. Liverpool for instants now have not won the league for nearly 30 years.... they have one the champions league amongst other things. There "golden period" 70/80 they one the vast majority of their silverware... in fairness their period of fantastic success mirrors Man Utd in the 90s 00s. All relative of course . Our best period was the same but obviously not too the same level. Arsenal fans want wenger sacked but that is purely down to not winning champions league or premier, however still competing at the top end of the league in champions league year on year winning a cup or two along the way... anyways transfers ..... I would love a coup..... snag Emnes ! Would love it but won't happen. He is too good for I'm surprised Swansea don't rate him. We don't need names, names got use nowhere ( Murphy ,Gomez etc) we also don't want tried and trusted league 1 players .. they are still in league one. We need the players that championship clubs /premier league clubs may take a punt on... however think these type of players cost millions but if your planning to go up they have to be useful in the next tier. Bizarrely a lot of what we do need we just let go. Jason Lowe would be a great signing purely on the basis we need athletes. we need to be fitter , stronger more powerful. I wonder if we can get Bright osayi - Samuelson looked good in the play offs only 19 ?
  9. I did the 1875 at the wolves game.... I seemed to be on only one holding a red card at the fa cup game v United-Now we had just scored so the timing may have had an effect but I had a few(spare red cards) and tried to pass them round. However another spin on , in game protests. People don't want to do them and it is kind of forced on them.
  10. What is the entry requirements for premier league 2 ? Is it just academy 1 status ? 2 things I do know there is no relagation from premier league 2 division 2 and the league only features premier league and championship teams ? will we meet academy 1 status and is this enough ? I feel it's important to still be part of this.
  11. I feel any home tie against most of the remaining premier league teams will attract a decent crowd. I'd also be very interested in the number of season ticket holders that attended Saturday. These fa cup matches always seem to fill the jack walker stand. Also off topic but why were blackpool fans on the left side of Darwin end ?
  12. No, he is rarely in position when we do not have the ball. But you could not drop feeney at this moment in time. He caused Birmingham alsorts of problems. His pace and skill is something I did not expect and we have not had a winger like this for a while.
  13. I fully agree but on the other hand we keep finding someone to sell . Each summer we seem to say "who would we sell next" and something turns up. Or a sell on clause appears from no where.
  14. This midfield would be miles ahead of any championship midfield
  15. Samuelson also played for west ham u23s on the 31st October but otherwise has not featured. Reading between the lines you seem to be able to play in u23s premier league even if you are not a registered player. Not saying it's a free for all, I'm sure there are some rules. I might be way off ... But didn't Wes brown play for us loads before we signed him ? Disappointed we are sending Samuelson back but he was not able to get into our team, and on seeing him play.. Technique is defiantly there. Strength, tactics etc not yet... But will have a future.
