Re: January transfer window thread , rumours etc

It looks like from the flurry of players we’ve been linked with there exists some consistencies. If we want pluck a youngish and athletic midfielder to add pace & doggedness to our squad, our owners are going to have to stump somewhere in the region of £20-30m. Alternately they could run the gauntle...

Re: Today's evening standard.

Let's be honest mate, if they really wanted to be up there with the likes of the Spuds, they would have done everything in their power to go and get Pochetino. Yes, I can hear the laughter from here, but that is just the point. They promised a Champions League Stadium, with Champions League footbal...

Re: Today's evening standard.

I’m actually caustically optimistic about Moyes, owners listened to fans and canned him after he got a tune out our squad that was floundering. Put Rice in a back 3, pushed Arnie & Lanzini up as a front 2 & hey presto! Now that we have collectively had the Audrey experience (owners & fans) I think ...

Re: Well done Jack.

About all he’s fucking good for now,running the laundry room. I’m afraid his career is dyed in the wool, he’s less likely to take a spin around the training pitch as he is a tumble down the stairs. We need to rinse the rest of his contract out while he continues on his delicate cycle, then flush th...

Re: Karen Brady on Sky News

I really feel like the whole reaction to this Brady interview is a little OTT. She really didn’t say anything too inflammatory, yet we feel a need, born out of past transgressions, to pick it apart. She isn’t the reason the players are underperforming as a team, but she is apparently aware of it. Th...

Re: Today's evening standard.

So there’s some good & some bad, but the fact that they’re touting a company line of dissatisfaction with the results on the pitch, is precisely what I want to hear, I’m just lacking the faith that they will do the right thing to get us out of it. Everything is done as a reaction to the previous ma...

Re: Today's evening standard.

True, but on the pitch, Audrey is responsible for where we are in the table. The dwarf is equally at fault for not sacking the old duffer 3 months earlier. For the last 10 years? Their first managerial appointment was Avram To be the devils advocate: They then hired the right mgr to get us out of t...

Re: Moyes to recruit new scouting staff

This is as about as arse about face backwards as it gets. So, every new manager has to overhaul the scouting top to bottom? At worst we should have a scouting and recruitment department in place. Of course a new manager would want some of his own people, but that should be in addition to, not top t...

Re: Sheff Utd vs West Ham Official Match Thread

Crickey, not the game to be blooding the U-18s into the team. They’re punching above their weight due to the mgrs organization and their overall effort. Hopefully we’ll have the former & the latter working for us too! I don’t mind Zabs in a wingback roll with the speed of Diop behind him in the back...

Re: Sheff Utd vs West Ham Official Match Thread

I don't think Zab scoring is the start of a new chapter for the boy,Taans :) I never mind seeing him starting.... his critics are blinded by the birthday. But would rather see Antonio take on the wing back position with some enthusiasm... I suppose if Antonio starts there we could bring Zab on if n...
