  1. Does everyone forget that Todd had Henry in his pocket last year? He is an excellent defender, and played much better than Zurab last year. Zurab comes in and has a decent game aginast Chelsea and all of a sudden he's better than Todd, who didn't even play against Chelsea?
  2. I think he knows the game, but I'm not sure how effective he will be in communicating with the team. I think they'll do well.
  3. I'd just like to point out that Chelsea played with four center midfielders today, so it's understandable that Reid and Savage had a difficult time.
  4. I think Peter is injured, and welcome back Tugay!
  5. Sounds like a nightmare debut for Ooijer. Zurab doing very well, so is Emerton.
  6. Sounds like Rovers are getting more chances, but can't convert.
  7. I don't know if I'm crazy or what, but the game certainly looks winnable to me. EDIT: Rovers World says Neill at LB.
  8. I think that the team will look very different after the Chelsea game when Tugay returns. I can foresee us handing out a drubbing or two.
  9. It looks like Emerton can do a job at fullback with Nelsen and Ooijer in the center and Zurab as cover.
  10. Sorry, Bellamy left for Liverpool a couple of months ago.
  11. Todd is still our second-best centre-back - at least until Ooijer joins and Nelsen is healthy again.
  12. I think Nelsen will be rushed back for Everton. I hope so, at least.
  13. From the text commentary it sounds like James is having a good game, as is Campbell, unfortunately. Also sounds like we're threatening most from set pieces.
  14. That's not a flat cap - that's a percentage of income cap. I'm suggesting capping total wages for all players over the age of 17 at the club at a certain number (probably different for each division, but not necessarily), like 750k pw for the squad.
  15. It doesn't help the "big" clubs - it limits how much they can offer in wages. And it protects "smaller" clubs. And the line between big and small clubs will blur. It doesn't matter how much money you make after breaking even because it can't be pumped back into the team directly - only through stadium, training, youth, etc.
  16. I fail to see how a flat salary cap could do anything but help Rovers and increase league parity.
  17. 1) Salary Cap 2) Revenue Sharing 3) Player contracts can be waived by clubs at any time
  18. Tugay has definitely had 5 in the past, and maybe 8 as well?
  19. 1. Liverpool 2. Chelsea 3. Man U 4. Arsenal 5. Spurs 6. Rovers 7. Newcastle 8. Man City 9. Villa 10. Everton 11. Wigan 12. West Ham 13. Portsmouth 14. Middlesbrough 15. Reading 16. Fulham 17. Bolton 18. Sheffield Utd 19. Charlton 20. Watford
  20. I'm a fan of Andy Todd who looked better than Zurab all of last season to me. Plus he had fewer red cards leading to us losing points.
