    Damien Johnson

    Disallowed goal v United, robbing Barthez and lobbing it over him. Header v Liverpool which stood for a 2-2 draw?

    Lewis Holtby

    Luca Toni drove him over. Marcus Maddison took the picture. Assombolonga was doing the coffee runs at the service stations

    Think I might print out this thread and burn it. Hopefully be cathartic

    Rodwell signs

    Tony seems to want a defensive reinforcement to add 'depth' to our back-line. Tony sees Rodwell's future as a CB. Tony offered him a further deal. Tony makes me worried

    Rovers v Charlton

    Clutching at straws here, but is this the best time to lose with Mowbray's reluctance to see the frailties of the defence. If we're to see a quality centre half appear this week, then this one may well become a distant memory in time.

    Ripped jeans are presumably all the rage on the continent?

    I think that's very telling. The better players that clubs want to keep - their value will increase in the closing days, as clubs put a premium on not being able to source a replacement. The lesser players that they want rid of - their value decreases as they become desperate to shunt them out. It lets you know definitively what market Tony shops in. I can't recall the last time we bought a player that the selling club wanted to keep - Rhodes I guess?

    I just can't understand the logic in advocating the faith in youth in defensive positions so strongly, but if you play in an attacking position it's a 'man's game' and we need experienced players. Joe Rothwell becomes a young, inexperienced lad at 24. It seems to be the opposite way around to me?? Experienced bruisers at the back please Tony, and unleash the youth in attack.

    Precisely. Every game against the top 6, he'll have a good chance of starting. I can see Bennett, Evans, Travis and Downing across the middle. And I'm being generous slipping Travis in there.

    I think Downing is filling the Conway role precisely, obviously on the opposite flank. Not so much a left back, or even wing back (of a 5), but a defensive minded wide player to see games out when required. For some reason as wingers get old and slower, the consensus seems to be they suddenly become better defensively. He'll be no more a left back or wing back than Conway was.

    And poor Steve Kean was forced to resign when he had us flying in 3rd in the Championship too....

    The scouting network has made it's way to Brighton. Once Madame bankrolls the Eurotunnel tickets it'll be all systems go on the European adventure

    Kits 19/20

    Just seeing the new away shirt now. Is the blue sponsor on the away shirt a p*ss-take? Why couldn't that have been replicated on the home shirt. Would have improved it immeasurably. Couple of beautiful mock-ups on here today, but they need to offer these 'out there' alternatives to try and grab sales from one off away shirt purchasers I think

    Only 33 minutes from Davenport.... ominous. Hopefully that's precautionary
