  1. Seventeen out of eighteen with the first eleven bang on. I am in sync with LJ which both scares and disturbs me!
  2. I could see for miles you were going to make that gag. As for Huddersfield, I can’t explain why they sacked Siewert. Maybe it’s because he wouldn’t use his substitute, and as a result they looked unlikely to get the magic bus to the premiership. I’m a boy who thinks that my generation expects instant success from relegated teams, but is this level tough and you better? You bet. (Frantically looks for tenuous Boris The Spider link)...
  3. What this does do is highlight that the person responsible for Huddersfield’s success may not have been David Wagner but Stuart Webber. It’s no coincidence that Webber was at Hudds until April 17 (and they limped over the line), and then joined Norwich and look what happened there. Pattern he follows is (yes, German) head coach and scouring the market for lower cost players. I think Siewert was on a hiding to nothing in the prem. But I wonder if the club had already lost what got them there to start with.
  4. I think Jack Hunt will start. Periera had to go off last week and was struggling with the pace first twenty, add to that Bailey being out and I think LJ will want the extra experience. I think we may go 5-3-2 Bentley Hunt/ Kalas/ Moore / Baker /Rowe Nagy/ Brownhill / Palmer Weimann / Afobe Subs Gilmartin Massengo Diedhiou Semenyo O’Dowda Periera Eliasson
  5. I’d agree with that. Again, liken it to libel or similar - the definition there can’t cover every turn of phrase that could be libellous so you have to set it at a high level and allow (however determined) application under that. No different here
  6. Don’t have a problem with that tbh (and not just because I’ve not seen the word besmirch used in ages!) The plain English is that if you cause trouble away from the ground, send/post things that are offensive on social media (eg Tammy) then you can have your ticket taken away and be barred. The million dollar question is always who is the arbiter of what is offensive, but short of saying “if you say **** on Facebook we’ll ban you” it has to be a loose definition. As long as policed sensibly and consistently, not sure there’s anything wrong there
  7. For a real life example of how this could work, see Otzumer. Slight nuance here in that he’s left Bolton by giving notice due to administration (had 1 year left on deal), but left post deadline and immediately signed for Charlton. I expect any action re overseas incomings to happen close to the respective countries deadlines as managers know who’s surplus and work out how the wages can be saved. That won’t mean the players aren’t decent but I expect any incoming where a contract is cancelled to be an unwanted player who is in the last year of current deal - on that basis the “selling” team save on wages for at least four months and the potential lost sale value in January isn’t as high
  8. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was an option for another year. The thing with a 2 year deal is (I believe) it takes TM to an age where compensation wouldn’t be applicable under Bosman, so if he wasn’t going to be used this year, perversely we’d have been better off not extending to get maximum value. As for TM - this is a big season for him. He’s clearly worked hard, bulked out and now has nigh on 100 senior games. Webster’s late departure really opens a door for him and I’d hope he had enough about him to step up - wasn’t fantastic defensively vs Leeds (were very good points though) but he seems the type to learn and move on - Nagy ahead will also help. The contract for me gives him a clear sign he’s getting a chance and I think he’ll work his damndest to take it - I think he may have the ability to do so as well
  9. Probably below Reid or Neiketah (later for potential) on my list but ahead of Wells, Moore and Joao. On that basis, decent deal.
  10. Am I missing something? I’ve just read that article and there are no reasons (let alone several) why FFC are favourites per GMcG, just why he’d come to us. And if one of BRs drivers is first team football he’s third choice at Fulham behind Mitrovic and Cavielro. What GMcG does is present a case that Reid is keen on the move and we can afford it which kind of contradicts his tweet!
  11. The below gives a good indication as to where people’s thoughts were 3 months ago. I thought it was a good idea then and I think it’s a good idea now.
  12. There’s a hell of a lot of knee jerk reaction and bull on this thread. Rightly so, it’s emotive. But to give some perspective: - Last season at this time we nearly signed Calumn Hudson-Odoi on loan. We didn’t. It didn’t end the season and not getting EN won’t either - Sundays game made no difference. Not one jot. At the eleventh hour Leeds have come in - their pitch isn’t going to be “we’re better than city” but is going to be “we’re better for your development. EN would play more here but he would work under the well respected Bielsa there so he has a decision - noting that in his own words he wants to play - Moves nicely onto this. I’d expect EN to see what Leeds have to say. If it was a Barnsley etc then I’d be nonplussed but they are the biggest club at our level with s renowned manager - it’d be strange if he didn’t want to talk - Those who say there is no plan B, IMO, have no idea how we work. EN was priority but there will be B,C,D. Think of the forward planning on deals - Massengo didn’t just “happen” and not will anyone else we get In short, yes we need a striker. But all that’s unfolded makes sense and at the moment, I wouldn’t be so quick to damn our season, EN, or the club
  13. Phew. Always good when a reliable source confirms things - Welcome To AG Eddie!
  14. Nowt for me. Negative side - don’t get to see it live. Positive side - don’t need a second mortgage
