I think you might be right. All that unified ICH drinking singing loving each other bullshit really got to me.

Now I feel deflated, cynical and just a bit meh.

Re: Sam Baldock

yeah for me, there were glaring weakness in DCM, FB and up front. PC has filled these gaps with solid performers (if Baldock comes, we are still assuming solely on one journo's tweet It might just be that I'm a little over optimistic as he has pretty much done exactly what I think he should have do...

PC clearly sees him as someone that can play the cf role. Did he score a few at Sochaux last season? Tbh I thought our days of playing wingers up top were over :( you're a barrel of laughs at the moment CR :lol: He'll only play CF if he is playing the CF role well. He is much bigger and stronger th...

Re: Sam Baldock

Sorry to be all doom and gloom but thoroughly underwhelmed at this (and if this concludes it) our entire summer’s transfers both in and out. Who realistically were you expecting to come in? Meyler and Yiadom - 2 experienced quality payers to fill in big issues we had at FB and CM last year McNulty ...

It’s like 5 miles south of Brum so not what i’d consider South. North Cotswolds is the divide for me.

Unfortunately I had stuff to do so only watched up until about 65mins.

Re: Season 2018/2019

I don't think 6 games of a relegation fight count as a head start. More of a hindrance than anything. How is it a hindrance? At the very least have had an opportunity to see the state of the team in competitive play and therefore have a better idea of what is needed moving into the transfer window ...

Re: Season 2018/2019

I don't nessecarily agree with that. It's a new manager doing his first pre season. It's about getting his tactics across and ensuring the players are fit for the season. Is there any evidence that teams who win their pre season games do better over the course of a season? Let's not forget he's bee...

Re: George Evans

Maybe so but for me it’s a far greater urgency to get rid of players we know for a fact aren’t and won’t come good, I.e Edwards and VDB.

oxf*rd pay out the contracts and get them the oxf*rd out, I throw up a bit in my mouth every time I see their names the useless spunkstains.

Selling young, buying old. Sustainable, I like it. :lol: I’m not convinced this is the best move. Had a stinker last season but so did pretty much everyone else.
