|Following on from the Wood thread - how much would the 1981 team be worth today?|
at 15:32 12 Jan 2022
Assuming they were at the height of their powers:
Here's my guesses:
Cooper - 8 million - top 5 goalkeeper in the country
Burley - 15 million - scottish international, marauding full back
Mills - 20 million - England regular and sometimes captain!
Thijssen - 30 million - Dutch international - recognised by fellow pros as player of the year!
Osman - 20 million - England international
Butcher - 40 million - legend, capped 70+ times by England
Wark - 70 million - 36 goals from midfield, bought by multiple Champions League winners
Muhren - 25 million - Dutch international, walked into Man Utd first team.
Mariner - 50 million - England centre forward for many seasons
Gates - 30 million - England international
Brazil - 50 million - scored lots of goals, went on to Man Utd and Spurs
and let's not forget the Beat too. (60 million) - Sir Bob said he was the best he'd seen!
Over 400 million!
Wow! I even think I have been a little conservative too!
|Cook's recruitment room?|
at 15:36 6 Jan 2022
What exactly does he mean by this? Is he implying that he had minimal input into the players recruited? Is he saying they were not the players HE wanted?
He must certainly have approved of Walton, Morsy & Evans - all integral parts of his succcessful Wigan team at the very least? Chaplin too as part of his Portsmouth line up?
|Gary Neville on Manure sounds like|
at 22:51 27 Dec 2021
He is talking about Town. Yes, it's a different level but he has just said United might have the better players but if they fail to apply themselves (essentially put the work in), lesser teams like Burnley (next game for United) will quickly find them out. Spot on Mr Neville for both Manure and ITFC.
|Will somebody coach this team how "press" the opposition please.|
at 12:41 16 Dec 2021
We just don't seem to have any success doing it whatsoever. Our players run headless at opposition defenders / midfielders but they don't do it as a unit and there is always an outball for them and they simply play around our so-called "press" with ease. Barrow ffs did it countless times last night. However, when they pressed, they did it with some cohesion, forced us backwards (invariably for a hoof from Walton) or our players had no outball, panicked and gave the ball away. It needs to be coached, drilled repetitively for it to work. Our "press" knackers our players for absolutely no reward at the moment. The lack of coaching is so evident in all aspects of our team and the depth of squad is both a fallacy and an utter distraction at this level.
at 20:32 15 Dec 2021
This is not just being outfought. It's outclassed. Shameful. The squad really has no depth. Burgess can't head it clear. Penny lightweight. Nsiala is no footballer. Carroll useless. El Miz running around but aimless. Fraser no end product. Norwood and Jackson feeding off nothing. Donation a plodder. All 5 subs on at ht pls.
|Walton Jan recall?|
at 08:30 12 Dec 2021
According to 72, Brighton to recall Walton to sell in window as contract up in summer. Trying to force our hand?

|Karl Robinson for me|
at 22:03 4 Dec 2021
All his teams play fluid football. With backing that Cook has had he would get us playing IMHO.
at 19:51 4 Dec 2021
Big Ashton connections from Brizzle and we have taken lots of staff from there. Just thinking out loud!
|Phil can you ask KVY|
at 18:31 2 Dec 2021
What the hell happened with Arsenal's first goal?. He looked like he had been shot with nobody near him !!!!!
|Harper absolutely anonymous|
at 22:48 16 Nov 2021
Game just passed him by. For such a physical specimen he does not put himself about. So easily brushed off and rightly substituted . Got to do more to get any opportunity of a place in the 11. Same with Pigott - very lacklustre. My first game since Lincoln in Cup 2 years ago and unfortunately, despite the win, Town were poor.
|Tickets on the gate at Oldham?|
at 12:41 15 Nov 2021
Plus, do I need proof of double vaccination aswell? Have been done but not gone through the NHS app thing - just have my card.
|Penney very weak. |
at 18:02 30 Oct 2021
He is far too weak for me. Appalling ball watching for the equaliser.
|The Aluko signing|
at 17:51 30 Aug 2021
Can someone please explain to me why?
|If there is to be another keeper coming in|
at 10:48 29 Aug 2021
Please, please, please let's have one that does the simple things very well. Dominate that 6 yard box and catch it or punch it giving defenders confidence. I can go and watch non league and see the ubiquitous 'shotstopper' . Anyone in the pro game will make what we think are great saves but defenders need confidence in the basics from their keeper. Do we really need a ball playing keeper in L1?
|Just seen MK first goal|
at 20:54 21 Aug 2021
Let's face it, poor goal keeping. He showed him which side to go by his original position, it was at a great height to save, he got to it and meekly palmed it into the goal! Not impressed by that on the back of Cheltenham's first too.
