  1. Predicted Table

    Agree maybe it's just wishful thinking.
  2. Predicted Table

    I personally expect Cardiff to fall off at some point in March/April they have a threadbare squad and will be super lucky to get through the season with that.
  3. Premier League problems

    "Juventus in 10th" that made me chuckle The champions league does make matters worse. What does annoy me with the Premier League is teams that are loaded up with mediocre overseas players like Arsenal they get rid of Gibbs and keep Monreal who is not as good a defender, they have started a number of games this season without a single Englishman, if it was the case that they were all world class it wouldn't bother me but more often that not they are simply average. It does make my blood boil that most of the players from the world cup winning youth sides this year will have their progress stubbed out thanks to the "English" premier league.
  4. Premier League problems

    I think if you thought about it you could quite easily predict the relegated teams, for instance I think in the next few seasons Southampton will end up dropping out of the top flight, teams seem to fall into a couple of categories, The big boys with silly amounts of cash resources that just buy the best talent (Man City, Arsenal, Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs) and they only look set to get wealthier. Then you have a group of clubs that seem to be perpetually rebuilding (West Ham, Everton, Newcastle, Sunderland) some of whom (get it badly wrong Sunderland) Then you a few clubs that seem to get promoted though good governance (Southampton cracking youth setup & Swansea, Leicester well run) who seem to get perpetually picked clean of talent season after season, and I think for Swansea this season might prove one to many, they look bereft of any creativity in midfield. Then you have a teams like Burnley, Brighton, Huddersfield who are not massively talented but the Manager gets the best from the players he has, and buys well. Then you have a whole load of teams that focus on not getting beat, and counter attacking with a few good players. Sometimes we get a situation where things click and a team pokes its head above the water like Leicester, but they then get systematically picked clean by the big boys. I personally think the best run clubs are those like Southampton who haven't sold their souls to stay there but have reinvested their income in good players and managers, but you can't keep doing that forever. I think over time its weakening the premiership the number of good young talents that get cherry picked by the big teams and then benched on big salaries (See Jack Rodwell etc) only to never see their potential had they stayed as their club see (Luke Shaw, Calum Chambers, etc). Success is a double edged sword, too much and you get picked clean, too little ie if we fail to get promoted this year there is a strong possibility we will loose players in the summer. And most of it all comes down to the wealth of the premier league.
  5. Will Fammy Diedhou return all guns blazing?

    It will take him a few games to get back into the pace from such a long layoff. But he's skilled and should be back to top form mid Feb is my personal expectation.
  6. Matty Taylor - Long term future here?

    He's doing a decent job as a squad player, sadly he's a victim of bobbys success this year. Leave the poor guy alone.
  7. Success

    Stick to the plan, gambling on promotion could badly break what we have started here which is stability and sustainable progression. Over performance shouldn't be a reason to deviate neither should underperforming.
  8. Liam Walsh

    I think you would struggle to see any positive attributes in Messi.
  9. Booing at FT..

    Do you smoke crack and post?
  10. Jamie Mac

    Is he wearing braces on his lower teeth in his interview or am I seeing things?
  11. Joe Bryan

    Luckily we are blessed with young Mr Kelly coming through as it does seem inevitable that if not with us Joe will be playing at a much higher level sooner or later.
  12. Luke Shaw or Joe Bryan

    Bryan made Shaw look like a National League player, he was a different class, and skinned Pogba to setup the Smith goal too, cant praise Bryan enough
  13. Jim Brennan City and Forest former player location

    I think he meant to add a 64 to the end you will get a Canadian div one side then
  14. transfer clarification

    I have to agree with this, I don't think we will see an awful lot of movement in Jan, I think there will be interest in our players but unless there is movement there then I don't see any significant amount of dealings in Jan. If we could get them then now would have been the best and most effective time, as all our players return to fitness loans become less effective/important.
  15. Joe Bryan Highlights Video

    Quick let's buy him looks class, though I expect he will go to a top prem team. Oh wait we have him .....
