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!

Any thoughts?

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.

Outclassed
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.

All his teams play fluid football. With backing that Cook has had he would get us playing IMHO.

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.

Wonder what Hladky's shots on goal to goals conceded ratio is?

Can barely remember him making anything other than routine saves all season from very sporadic efforts on our goal. He inspires fear.......in our defenders!

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.
