Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (a) sponsored by Jack Witham

And 12 goals in 36 games.Went on to play a lot of games for Pompey.Bit of a white flannel expert as well. That's right-Surrey (?) IIRC we bought Ernie Yard on the same day and they both played the next night. It was one of those (many) occasions when we thought we might then have a good enough team...

Re: The Backroom Staff Thread

I presume from "plus the manager's mate from his playing days who in turn is mates with an ex-playing colleague at Man Utd", you are referring to one of the coaches who was already at the club having also previously played for the club. .....who was a player previously at the aforemention...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (a) sponsored by Jack Witham

Regarding Whitham I naively had high hopes for him when he signed. Regrettably he became just one of the many old crocks that we foolishly signed over the years including:- Ron Tindall Les Ferdinand Yakubu Martin Keown Anton Ferdinand John O'Shea Two however that I can think of who did become crock...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

With Milner now out and Thiago out at least until the New Year things really aren't looking that bright for Liverpool at the moment. With Fabinho having to play at the back because of the reckless action of that clown Pickford there is some bite missing from a midfield that also has no Keita nor Sh...

Re: The Backroom Staff Thread

There certainly are a lot of mouths to feed these days both off and on the pitch-all of those plus the players with no matchday money coming in. Those deep pockets that the Mad Man used to go on about really do need to be deep. As with most clubs the structure is made up mainly of a manager and his ...

Mid table Man Utd winning away at high-flying Southampton must rate as one of the results of the day.

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Hendo, you somehow forgot the results pre-Millwall when we had just about the worst defensive record in the country over a 5 game period. As I said previously, none of us knows what or how good an impact an individual person has on the team oxf*rd LOL. You're going to pick a 5 game run when we had ...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

This is SCR we're talking about. He hates him because he's ex United. Having the right mix of personalities is important and O'Shea is a good fit. Also he'd be mad to take Sunderland as a first managerial job. I think Alardyce will get it "Hate" is a bit strong-once anybody has nothing to...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Sunderland's treatment of managers makes me wish them league one football for a lot longer. Parkinson's sacking will no doubt be Reading's loss - with Jon O Shea in the running. Would that be such a loss? I think so, 100%. From what you hear, he is incredibly intelligent, has a good football brain ...

Re: How good is Yakou Meite?

Our other strikers, Puscas and Baldock offer so little when compared to Joao and Meite that it is vital that these two stay fit. Meite has improved so much since his loan spell and great credit must go to whoever at the club saw the potential in him when he first came to us -most of us certainly did...

Re: BFS - Bristol City (H)

There’s some beef between Martin and Moore I think. Don’t think it was an accident he ‘did’ him like that Maybe Moore didn’t think Martin pulled his weight when he was here, when in reality the illness had a big impact on him? I didn’t picture Martin as a dirty player but that was pretty bad Always...

Re: BFS - Bristol City (H)

Thought "Oh no, not again" when Nakhi Wells scored but we just upped our game once more and came out comfortable winners. The other "oh no" moment was when Moore went down holding his throat-memories of Super Trevor Senior getting struck in the same area v Bristol City. Fortunate...

Happy with team and with a draw today - will be a close game Anyone know how far off Puscas is from returning? If Joao got injured we've nothing up front If we have top 6 ambitions this is a game that we should win. With what is available am happy with the line-up. It looks as though he has sussed ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (a) sponsored by Ricky Newman

Only just seen the replay of the foul for the free kick. Couldn't get much softer imo. Debatable whether it actually even is a foul. For me, Rino (unintentionally) catches him slightly as he's winding up to shoot. I think the ref's got it spot on (unlike a lot of the rest of the game), but it's a t...
