  1. Weekend football

    Great derby. Brooks for Sheff Utd looks a cracking young player.
  2. Have we under estimated LJ ?

    Others have said in other threads that we shouldn't get too blinded by our transfer spending. It is the way of the transfer market now. In addition we are not approaching the top spenders in the division and we are taking calculated gambles with our signing of young or foreign players (or both). We are not spending £15m on single players as others in our division are doing. So I see no reason why we should 'expect' promotion this season. I'll be happy with improvement, which is solid mid table. Being patient with our manager and our young players seems to be paying off and long may it continue (both the patience and the form!)

    To be fair, I thought GON started last season well and helped us gain some confidence. I remember being impressed with his energy in the early matches. Went wrong from mid Sept when he was sent off v Sheffield Wed following Tomlins's pen hitting the post followed by injuries.

    Knowing our play off record, he'd probably miss!
  5. Palace at Home

    I hadn't thought about Spurs at Wembley although not particularly special if we would only receive 3000 tickets, which is what they are providing for PL matches I believe. Anyone know the away allocation rules in EFL cup?
  6. Callum O`Dowda

    I'd rather see Leko tear into Bolton from the start at home on Tuesday when I would expect us to have the majority of the possession. So yes personally I'd keep an in form O'Dowda in the team on Saturday with Leko used from the bench once Norwich tire. I'm also not sure that Leko is as good (yet) as O'Dowda when we are not in possession. So expect Leko to start and score a hat trick!
  7. Callum O`Dowda

    No, not away at Norwich.
  8. Callum O`Dowda

    Would like to see O'Dowda and Paterson in tandem on the flanks on Saturday. Both of them are more defensively solid than our other options - which is useful away from home - but also great offensively. Pack and Brownhill in centre mid. Bit harsh on Smith perhaps - tough choices!
  9. Who Do We Want Next?

    Arsenal at home - big club but winnable I reckon!
  10. Ratings

    Promising start I thought. I was concerned we might be a bit lightweight up front but he is physically stronger than I was expecting. Linked up well. Good goal. Will get better with games.
  11. Jamie Paterson

    Yes I saw that; they wanted him subbed. Paterson is anything but lazy! His work rate is phenomenal. Same goes for all the team at the moment which is a big part of why we are doing well.
  12. When to accept your 5m striker is misfiring?

    Really impressed with his finish today - clinical. That will do his confidence the world of good.
  13. Ratings

    Thought Pack had a really good game today.
  14. Cardiff - Back to 12 Noon on Saturday!

    Yes police did previously agree to Fri night so something has gone awry.
  15. Reasons to be positive

    This quote from the Wolves manager last night - love it that we are viewed in this way/are not pushovers. "Bristol started very aggressively and there should be a little bit more protection to our players."
