  1. Behold the field of ***** I give about this name change, and tho, 'tis barren....
  2. Ghana's Premier League has a club name to surpass those... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Coast_Ebusua_Dwarfs
  3. You have to wonder how many times Holden felt like facepalming when LJ explained his team selections.
  4. Sometimes you can learn more by watching someone else get things wrong than by watching someone do things right. In my last job, I took over running a department from a fella who - though admirable in many ways - made lots of mistakes which I , as his deputy, observed. Attempts to change things were brushed away. When I took over, I knew where to copy my predecessor - and when to make things very different from him.
  5. I don't particularly like him, however I agree with your second line. And I wouldn't wish a serious Covid infection on anyone. It's a horrible disease that kills one in sixteen people it infects in Neil's age group. Hope it's mild and he's back with his "hilarious" banter soon.
  6. Slated because he put in a series of very poor performances. There is always the possibility that young players who had been thrown in at the deep end too fast will develop and improve. This is why most of us support the policy of buying mostly young and developing players. It makes economic sense as well.
  7. Found this the other day on YouTube. Sums up someone I know...
  8. In a word, yes. Let's see how we get on against some of the tougher teams in the Championship before we start throwing a tickertape parade for "Deano" down Duckmoor Road. We looked absolutely awful for much of the game against just-promoted Coventry and only secured three points in the dying stages of a home game. The positive signs are of a definite improvement in our young players, the new guys all look good additions, and Holden seems a bit more canny with his substitution policy. We still look good come the start of November and maybe I'll start to get overexcited mysel
  9. I was about to say the same. More knee jerks than at the Follies Bergere.
  10. Although he went on to play at a higher level than us, a case could be made for Steven Caulker playing his most consistently good football here. His 20s seem marred by alcohol and gambling problems and now at what should be the peak of his career he's with a mid-table Turkish side.
  11. The bright lights of Hounslow turned his head...
  12. I'd still seek an improvement on last season. I still don't think we quite have it in us to reach Top 6 though. The unknown factor is Holden's management chops. He's said the right things and we've made some decent signings, but we cannot yet entirely know DH's man-management skills, his reaction to adversity, his ability to build team spirit and coach-out mistakes. All this and more will become evident as the season gets going. The board might've done the right thing and discovered a hidden gem of a head coach - or they could have taken the cheap option and we will pay the consequen
