  1. Spend the money received in the January window on hiring the experienced manager that we have so desperately been needing for years....
  2. Why us...? probably the same reason as why we got Tammy, LJ reportedly gave a very persuasive presentation to Chelsea to convince them that we were the right club to progress his game and most likely, the same for HNM... Not sure where the back patting comes from, my point is that the away support gets behind the team as opposed to the armchair wonders who moan constantly during the game at AG (and yes, the football does frustrate me but I don't moan out loud about it)...
  3. Oh I do hate that so much, dream big and you have a chance of achieving something, think small and that's what we'll remain...
  4. I just love the way that some people seem to be so desperate to end the career of a young talent at this club. Just a reminder that it wasn't Bognor Regis Town that we signed him from, it was Monaco FFS plus, other higher ranking clubs were after him. We chased him and sold him a dream which is becoming a nightmare but I'll quite happily go with the likes of Monaco, etc as being better judges of a footballer than some of our vociferous armchair heroes who are very quick to see nothing and brand him a failure to be moved on.... Our style of play is poor and it is this mainly because
  5. Easy as well when we play an ultra cautious game, we've probably coached all of the talent out of him... You would have thought that that the addition of Messrs Simpson and Downing would have begun to have had an impact on the way we play however it has yet to manifest itself. I haven't been to watch the reserves for some time but the last time I did, they played a completely different brand of football to the first team...
  6. The thing that is missing is ambition and by that I mean that we play the same at home as we do away. Away, we play as a tight, compact unit who's purpose is to contain the opposition and create a few chances and hope we can take one or 2 and hang on for the win and, IT WORKS. Our away record is decent HOWEVER, we replicate this at home PLUS, we have no real attacking threat or pattern of play that creates chances. We do not have any players who run directly at goal (as Millwall did every opportunity that they had tonight) and are an immediate threat I am not going to be so harsh as
  7. It is on wiki however I have been watching football in Hungary for 4 decades, this was the first match my Dad took me to (pre teens) Hungary vs Yugoslavia, 29 May 1974 (eu-football.info) brilliant game, even if was just a "friendly" (there was no such thing as a friendly with them) I've seen many, games including some more recent highlights:- Debrecen v Man Utd Aug 2005 (in Budapest, national stadium) Hungary v Germany friendly May 2010 (Budapest, national stadium) Budapest Honved v Anzhi Makhachkala July 12 when Anzhi triggered Messi's £205m release clause (Gus Hiddink in
  8. A few ridiculous comments on here, the bloke is a proper goalscorer with a better than 1 in 3 career average. You don't get that by being "duff"... ?! More like he is suffering the Bristol City strikers curse which we are all so familiar with, we have had SO many capable strikers arrive here with decent records, do nothing, move on and resume regular scoring. The list is a mile long and stretches back decades... More recently, this was down to the conservative style of play prevalent at this club since the mid 2000's, somehow we reached the play-off final for the premier league with
  9. Glad to see Adam getting good press. He and Paul Simpson are no strangers having worked together at VSI Rio Maior Football Club so I am hoping the reunion will only help to bring the best out of him
  10. Some good comments, thanks for the feedback and yes I agree, he is definitely needs to be given some freedom to play. Especially agree with the comment about playing alongside Brownhill against Birmingham, I would like to see him with Bakinson who seems to be wise beyond his years and has got it all, looks like he has a very big career in front of him.. I might also be considered a bit biased (Hajrá, magyarok!) but that doesn't detract from the fact that Nagy was bloody good. I also watched the post match interview when he said he was basically running on fumes by the end but you would ne
  11. I watched all 3 of Hungary's Nations League's games over the last week and at last, saw the player that I was excited that we had signed. He played all bar 6 minutes of the games, was decent in the first game, better in the second and tonight, magnificent. The reason..? simply that he wasn't shackled to a holding midfielder role... I wondered how he would cope tonight with the schedule but you would never have known it was his third game in 7 days. Incredible energy, he was everywhere, covering every blade of grass, breaking up attacks and mopping up but in addition, moving into forward p
  12. If anything, I expect SL's fortunes have probably increased as he is astute enough to have bought the market due to the pouring of unlimited (yes, that is unlimited) funds into the Dow Jones by the Fed who have facilitated the recovery from 19k to 26K by basically buying corporate America. This is the only reason for the recovery as America has no economy to speak of at the mo. He will probably also have put his money in gold and silver, the traditional safe havens which have done well...
  13. No, I'm sticking with undoubtedly Completely agree...
