Re: RUMOUR - Matthew Kilgallon

Please no !

If this is the sort of signing we are going to make for next season-it indicates a complete lack of ambition and planning.

Re: Worst game of the season.

It has to be Wigan at home-after that we knew we were screwed. We didn't even get close to them.

Re: Kevin Doyle

If Kevin Doyle is not crocked -get him back.

The Kevin Doyle we had could score goals, hold it up and beat players (in the box)- if he has still got it-he is a far better player than Rhodes-and for me the best player we ever had (at the Madstad).

Re: BFTG Norwich

TBF today Adkins was sorting out the wheat from the chaf-problem is there are four times more chaf than wheat !

Expect a major exodus of players next season.

His transfer budget and who he buys will dictate the level of the Club's ambition next year.

Re: Robson-Kanu and Pearce to Cardiff

Given that our only marketable players are our Goalies -no Prem club or promoted club in their right mind will take any of our players; on the evidence of what has been produced this season.

Re: Team for Norwich

I still don't understand the Carrico situation-So we bought him with an injury-who screwed up there or its taken him 10 weeks to get match fit-I don't think so.Somebody has'nt done their job. Even against West Brom I thought he was tidy-then he disappeared until Liverpool. Brian was then forced to p...

Re: Could we do a Wigan?

If by some magic we ended up with 36 points I would be exceptionaly pissed off-that means we were only ever one win /couple of draws from staying up.

In reality I cannot see us winning another game-let alone four.

Re: REFWATCH: Reading v Liverpool

I have never liked him-but I thought that was the best refereeing performance I have seen at the Mad Stad all season. He did have one very bad moment (apart from the missing cards)-with the clear shirt back in the 2nd half from which Liverpool nearly scored-but apart from that he was pretty good-per...

Re: Why does everybody hate Federici?

He has one major weakness which marks a great goalie apart from just a good one-and that is his decision making-this was typified by Soton's first goal last week. Strangely when he first came into the side he was the best goalie I had ever seen at kicking out of hand. He could land it on a sixpence,...

Re: Unpaid Internship

I imagine they mean travel expenses to get to the stadium or training ground. Chances are they'll get a seat up there with the media team or someone along those lines when they do go away. Don't understand the massive ho-har. It's an opportunity to get a foot on the ladder in an industry where ther...

Re: Championship - Wages League Table 2011/12

The reality is that big wages mean better players (when they can be bothered)-better players mean more points. Given that Clubs (once they have a decent ground)-should run at a small profit/small loss-if I was a Birmingham or Wet Sham fan I would be asking where the "excess" money is going...

Re: Player of the Season

I'm the only person who voted for Pearce. 60 people have voted for Mariappa. I do think Pearce is our best defender, I think he's excellent at reading the game, his positioning is very good and he organises the back line well (though that might just be because he doesn't play with Morrison very muc...

Re: Back from the game - Southampton (H)

About a month ago I thought we had a reasonable chance of staying up-we needed 15 points and had four winnable games; Wigan, Villa, Soton, QPR. What gave me confidence was that at home Fulham, West Ham, Sunderland, Swansea, Norwich , Stoke all looked really poor teams and I felt we were able to live...

Harsh.


Not harsh. Simply wrong. He was not embarrassing.


What about when he hooked the ball behind the goal ;when trying to cross ?
