|Alright, now i'm worried|

Birmingham won away at Leeds. Our only winnable game (on paper) in October is QPR and on current form we won't even be beating them.
Someone to come in mid way through October? Warburton?

Sky just said one of the factors in some areas is houses being 'under occupied'. They asked one man (who owned his house) if he felt guilty for living in such a big house when so many people need more space.
Does anyone think he should feel guilty? Would anyone like to see some sort of bedroom tax brought in on private properties? Seems a really unfair question to me and curious how other people see it.
|Who are the senior players?|
at 13:52 19 Sep 2018
I keep seeing the senior players mentioned but who are they? Give us specific names rather than a collective.
To me the active senior players in the squad are:
Chambers - Passionately celebrated the equaliser. Made a point of criticising the match performances as not being as good as training performances
Skuse - Hurst seems to like him a lot. Skuse has been in the game long enough to know the last five years of stability under MM is not the norm and change is inevitable
Knudsen - Wants a new deal
Bart - MM took the same 'two equal keepers' stance for the majority of his reign.
Gerken - Probably not going to have a problem with Hurst
Spence - He's getting chances and got a vote of confidence when PH sent Emmanuel out on loan.
So lets have it from the increasing number of people in the know who keep mentioning the senior players, who is unhappy?
|Do we have a mentality issue?|
at 17:31 15 Sep 2018
There are endless examples of teams needing a result in the last few years and we happily give it to them. Four that come to mind straight away:
Forest away - they need a result to stay up. We roll over without a fight and they get a comfortable 3-0 win
Rotherham away - they are predicted to struggle. Their early games will set the tone for their season. We give them three points and a clean sheet.
Derby away - Lampard had a mixed start, early results set the mood again. We give them three points and a clean sheet.
Hull away - Lost 6/6 of their last home games, conceded a goal for 12 games straight. We give them three points and a clean sheet.
We are everyone's dream opponent when they are struggling. It's getting really tedious.

First of all...I know, I know...I too am a sceptic.
My mum went to an event this evening where he appeared. She just phoned me and told me everything he told her. Apparently there were roughly 150 people there and he picked about 8 out, of which she was one. The information he gave her was very specific. None of this 'has anyone lost a John?' stuff. It's going to take more than one incident to change my mind on things like this but the information was about things he simply couldn't have known.
Does anyone have any experience of seeing him or able to explain any tricks etc? Apparently he was talking to people and naming their deceased relatives. Where they died etc.
Any info/opinions/outright piss taking is welcome.

Some people going way OTT about our loans. We have five real loans and an unfortunate situation which the club has handled very well.
People seem to think it's somehow out of the ordinary to have five loan players. Lets see how many other clubs in the division have:
Sheff U 4
West Brom 3
Bristol City 2
Sheff Wed 2
Plenty of teams heavily using the loan market. I know people love to complain but lets not switch the goalposts now and make it about keeping the youngsters out etc, this is purely for the people saying we're back to the Jewell days. Swansea fans not happy about not signing more loan players today.
We have a solid squad on paper now. Lets see where we are in January.
|I'm going 'nearly vegan'|
at 20:54 22 Aug 2018
No idea if there is a label for that and I don't really care. Any tips board vegans?
I'm going to aim for 90% of my calories from vegan friendly foods to begin with and might go further eventually. Going to stick to 2000 calories a day so that gives me only 200 calories from animal foods maximum. Most days I see it being 0%.
Why post this here? This site has plenty of vegans and I can't be bothered to sign up to a new forum.
I'm not doing this for ethical reasons so I won't be preaching at anyone. Please respect the spirit of the thread. If it becomes vegans vs meat eaters I will ask for it to be deleted as that isn't my intention. Please hide the thread if you don't want to see it as I do with cricket, jazz and many other threads without making a drama of it.
If anyone thinks this is attention seeking please take the logical step and ignore the thread!

Not sure how much of that is down to his hair though.
Seems calm and confident.
|EFL Cup Bets?|
at 22:06 13 Aug 2018
I've gone for:
Ipswich @ 2.05
I know betting on the first round of this cup is a mug's game but i've picked sides who I think would be too strong with their second teams, us who we know are playing a strong team and Norwich who, like us, probably need a win to get things going.
|iFollow - Norwich game|
at 17:53 12 Aug 2018
Just been looking at this. It says:
'EFL Clubs will be able to live-stream in the UK and Ireland any league match via their respective iFollow (or equivalent) service that takes place outside the blocked hours of 14.45-17.15 on Saturday afternoons and that is not broadcast live on Sky Sports. Fixtures taking place on Bank Holidays or Easter will be unavailable for streaming.'
Would that include the Norwich game? Obviously it meets the criteria but I haven't heard anything about this. Apparently you can buy a match pass for £10. Might be of interest to fans around the country who can't get to the game if so.
|It's going to take time. We have half a team of signings to integrate.|
at 17:44 11 Aug 2018
Before the season started people said it was a transition season. Now some, admittedly a minority thankfully, are worrying already.
My favourite comment was in the chat room 20 minutes into his second competitive start for the club, 'I really don't rate Harrison'.
