Well pretty poor game today
at 19:24 29 Nov 2014

from 2 teams, both of whom deserved 10/10 for effort but 4/10 for quality. Have to say we defended well & certainly came on strong at the end, rather than sitting back for a point.

Is Amir Karic playing?
He seemed to have got missed from that list of reasons why we were relegated. A sort of lower grade Winston Bogarde, rated by Crystal Palace fans as their worst ever player on the strength of 30 minutes on loan. We paid £700k for this waste of space. And, amazingly, he still played for Slovenia in the 2002 World Cup. WHAT was wrong with this guy?

Roy does appear to make a valid point about transfers
at 19:54 7 Oct 2014

during his reign, It seems that initially, Roy identified targets & then Clegg did a sort of trolley dash, hoovering them up at absurd prices. Definite lack of communication & I presume Evans was involved as well. The same with the failure to sign Derry, Carsley orKilbane (of which only Derry would have been much good) - Roy identified them as targets & then Clegg/Evans failed to do the deals. Amazingly slapdash; presumably Evans has learned since then & MM insists on a more professional apporach.

Just got back from Nottingham
at 20:07 5 Oct 2014

& was one of the best Town away performances I have seen in recent years. We controlled much of the first half & looked well worth the win; however, after Jonny was (correctly) subbed, we lost our way slightly & Forest deserved their draw. We look so much better a team with Williams in the side - he always want the ball, looks up & does something positive with it. Berra was immense at the back, Parr very solid & Mings made some great saving tackles, while getting forward regularly. Skuse was excellent in the first half. Tabb did very well in the 2nd half, keeping & using the ball intelligently. I thought MM's only error was in bringing on smith as an extra defender, which meant we hardly got out of our half in the last 15 minutes. Particularly poor tactic as Gerkin seemed incapable of coming for a cross - not a surprise that both their goals came from corners.

Anyone really think air strikes on ISIS are a good idea?
at 19:01 24 Sep 2014

Won't achieve anything, beyond killing some insurgent Muslims & some innocents.
Will antagonise Muslims & encourage Jihadists.
Will encourage hostage taking & killing of hostages.
Please can we stop meddling in the Middle East - we now seem to be looking to support from Iran & effectively helping Bashar Al-Assad.

Sterling starts for Liverpool in the League Cup
at 20:06 23 Sep 2014

Very odd, when Rodgers started him on the bench in the PL against Villa last week, as he feared "burn out". Brendan must be desperate to qualify for next season's Europa League.

The bribe being offered to Scottish voters
at 08:28 16 Sep 2014

by the 3 UK party leaders - does the rest of the UK, who will be funding this, have a say?
Does this include a pledge to reduce Scotland's huge over-representation at Westminster in the light of greater devolution plus removal of the right of Scottish MP's to vote on purely English affairs?
No, thought not.

do they fix the draw for the league cup?
at 23:00 27 Aug 2014

the "big 4" CL clubs all drawn at home, 3 of them against lower division opposition, after having a bye through the 2nd round.
Even 4th division Portsmouth made 8 changes for their game at Stoke. The sooner this competition was put to bed, the better.

have predictably seen lots of woe on this board
at 22:25 23 Aug 2014

but it's pretty simple. The Budgies beat us deservedly today because they have better players. That's what a few years in the PL does for you. One can carp about various players we have & choices, but MM is getting pretty well as much as he can from a limited squad. Our team is probably no better than last year & shorn of our best player, Cresswell, probably slightly worse. Without some additions, especially in midfield, the play offs will be a good achievement.

First 3 games
at 21:17 20 Aug 2014

I don't count Crawley as all that did was show that our squad is quite thin.
Very promising performance against a decent Fulham side - huge work rate & pressing. Unfortunately, we haven't built on that & have gone into 2 away games against average teams with a negative attitude. If we keep doing this, not sure our poor away record will improve. Pleased to see anderson start yesterday; would prefer Wordy ahead of Skuse.
Cresswell is the big hole - it was always going to be hard to replace the best LB in the league. Hence criticism of Mings - unfair IMO - he will get there but it will take time. Please persist with him rather than casting him adrift like Garvan, Trotter & Rhodes.
Too dependent on Mc goldrick - if he is injured, we will have big problems. Sammon & Murphy is a poor pairing.
Conclusion - I can see us hovering around 6th-10th place unless we make a couple of shrewd loan signings, along the lines of Williams.
