  1. If we don't want to get promoted, what's the point? I hate the Premier League, but if we're actively hoping for mediocrity, why bother?
  2. Bobby Reid the midfielder did nothing after his Oldham loan. It's pure coincidence that a very similar looking chap with the same name was a great centre forward for us a few seasons back
  3. Had lunch yesterday with a mate who's on the Supporters Trust board at Oldham and he says Smith is absolutely brilliant. He did caveat it though by saying that Oldham have a long history of getting young players on loan, them looking great and then fading into obscurity once they go back to their parents clubs
  4. Henriksson in for Massengo (assuming he's close to match fit) but I would think Benkovic and Wells will be on the bench
  5. Seems like he scored all kinds of goals- both feet, head, close range, short range... Obviously plays deeper now, but looks a class act
  6. Good luck to JB. I've always rated him and it's been great to see him develop over the years. Sounds like a good move for him too; back to the NW and at a well run club with a good manager
  7. Yep, a new striker was a must for January and we've signed one who knows the division and has been in good form this season. My indifference is from a few years ago and that was a season he got promoted so I should probably cheer up!
  8. Lots of energy, not much technique. Not particularly clinical. The stats this season certainly suggest I'm wrong on the last point, but it's just from watching him a few times at Huddersfield. Not criticising the signing at all, he's proven to score goals in this division so I don't know what more we could ask for. I guess I'm just not excited as some and not convinced he's going to exactly 'bang them in' from now until the end of the season He could be. And I agree that at the price KITR has mentioned, it's a good deal for a player who knows the division
  9. As I said, just an opinion and obviously he's done very well this season. But buying a 29 year old on the basis of an uptick in stats over half a season isn't a great strategy. As I said; I'm all for signing him as he undoubtedly improves the squad, I just have some preconceptions of him as a player that I probably need to get over!
  10. I've got be honest; I've never rated Wells. Watched him a bit when he was at Huddersfield and always felt there was more effort than quality. But if he signs I don't think anyone can deny he improves our options up front. So in that respect, I'm all for it

    Bakinson

    I wonder if we should be keeping an eye on that Jephcott kid while we're monitoring TB? Sounds like he's had a good start to the year
  12. So now if Nketiah doesn't sign, everyone will say it's because LJ didn't do the best job managing Palmer. Of course LJ hasn't been great managing Palmer, but there are absolutely no guarantees at this stage that Nketiah is coming here. I'm far from satisfied with LJ at this stage, but this is pure speculation (the article doesn't quote any source regarding Palmer's interactions with Nketiah, just guessed at what they might be talking about) and I can already hear the mouth-frothing meltdowns if EN doesn't sign for us
  13. I've always stuck by LJ because I think he's a genuinely talented and forward-thinking coach, but we just haven't got any better over the last 3 seasons and I think he's gone stale

    Eliasson

    I think that all 4 midfielders that started yesterday are prem quality in terms of ability. When was the last time we could say that? I've said that about Eliasson since we signed him; he strikes the ball like an international class player, we just had to wait for the rest of it to fall into place. As for COD, I've long since said he'd be best in centre mid, on the left hand side of a three. Problem for him is that he isn't one of our three best central midfielders

    Diedhiou

    I think Fammy is a player who can be incredibly effective, but needs to be used in the right way. He's not going to take games by the scruff of the neck and drag you back in to a match all be himself. However, if you don't fire 40 yard balls at his head and get players alongside and around him, I think he's a great player at this level
