"UEFA is preparing a counter-attack on the Super League. UEFA is working with a English investment fund to come up a new LOC that would have a starting budget of 4.5 billion euros rising to 7 billion".
I bet them figures have purely been drafted to entice the ESL clubs back.
4231 is clearly pants with these players, it's been evident throughout the season. Whether it was Lambert or Gill, we looked best when we played 442. So the question is do you hamper your promotion chances and keep playing your system so you know what players can do a job next season, or go back to 442 for this season to give us a better chance before shaking it up next year?
We shouldn't accept "we won't get top 6" bearing in mind Cook has already taken us there. The bottom line is if we don't finish in the top 6 then he's failed this season. You would have to hope he gets enough support to assemble a squad to play his way next year, but for now me personally would like to see him adapt to suit the current squad, as that will give us the best chance.
Watson: Asked if this was his side's best performance of the campaign, Lambert said: "I don't really know. It's just encouraging. It's a step in the right direction".
You think for all the brilliant performances we've had, he'd be buzzing off the walls about this one. I reckon he's trying to be more cautious in interviews now, given all the jokes aimed his way. The ones he doesn't see because he doesn't read articles/forums.
