  1. Will it happen again?

    Since that run we have also added some absolute warriors - Bailey Wright, Baker and Pisano.
  2. It's quite a difficult one but I'm remaining positive about Diedhiou. He is being asked to do things he isn't used to doing - working so hard on our high press being one of them. When you work so hard without the ball (and it applies to everyone, not just Diedhiou, but he definitely won't have done it before), it will obviously make it more difficult to do what you want to do when you have got the ball - anyone who has played at any level will know how this feels!! On top of that, the pace and tempo of the game here, the number of games he's having to play. I'll judge him fully at the end of the season but I've seen enough glimpses of ability to think that he'll eventually be a success for us. I've mentioned it and so have others loads of times but 20 goal Championship strikers really are few and far between, if the team keeps scoring as they are (which is far far better than relying on 1 player like last season), and he gets 12+ in his first season, works hard and continues to play a part in our goals, then that'll do for me. Also, I don't think that LJ is the sort of manager to shirk a decision. He has all the data and if Diedhiou is not contributing enough, he'll be benched. His price tag won't come into it. We spent good money on Engvall, Magnússon, Tomlin etc and he's been happy to bench them.
  3. Wasn't there today but that also seemed the case against Villa when he came off. That said, Woodrow hasn't come here for the season for 5 minutes here and there and it may not be a bad idea to give Diedhiou a break. Wouldn't surprise me if that was on Tuesday.
  4. Hinds, Moore and Morrell join Cheltenham

    Cheltenhams pitch is excellent. It has been poor in recent seasons due to allowing Gloucester City to play their home matches there. This agreement is no longer in place so I fully expect it to return to being one of the best surfaces at that level.
  5. the elephant in the room.

    Interesting comparison. Birmingham paid £1m for Adebola in 1998, nearly 20 years ago. What would they have paid in the current climate? More than £5m IMO.
  6. Eros

    I've been really impressed with Pisano. My expectations were lowered significantly when someone came on here after the Yeovil friendly saying he looked non-league or something. Anyway, he looks a class act and our back 5 is looking really solid.
  7. the elephant in the room.

    I thought he did okay last night to be honest. Gave the Villa defence enough to think about, was intriguing watching him up against 2 quality centre backs in Terry and Samba. Anyway, 5 games in a new country? I think I'll give him a bit longer than that. It was interesting to hear what they said about Pisano's reaction after the Brentford game (in terms of the football in this country).
  8. I'd be interested to know how much ground he covered. He is like a machine! At one point in the first half, we had committed quite a few players forward when we lost the ball in the attacking 3rd and he ran back 50-60 yards to get goalside and get in a challenge. I think I read somewhere that he'd been on a "Back 2 Action" camp over the summer before pre-season. Not sure if this is common for professional footballers? Anyway, always loved watching Bobby Reid, hope his form continues.
  9. Can we sell it out ?

    Last season against Hull in the same competition we had a fairly decent 16,000. If it's priced right, we should be able to beat that.
  10. Cauley Woodrow (Merged)

    What a strange comparison of players to base your disappointment on. Don't know a lot about Fonte but if you're comparing the signing of Woodrow to Vassell and Bogle, surely you SHOULD be jumping for joy? Because the other 2 have achieved less in comparison.
  11. Cauley Woodrow (Merged)

    Happy with this. Hungry young player with some championship experience. Was very important for Burton last season. Regardless of what Fulham fans think, the Burton fans rated him and Nigel Clough, who I think is a very good manager, wanted him back. That's better than any Fulham supporters opinion for me. Welcome Cauley and good luck.
  12. Nathan Baker - SIGNING CONFIRMED

    But surely, given that he has played under LJ before, LJ's lack of pulling power/appeal and how much players hate playing for him etc etc BS BS BS etc etc, there is no way Nathan Baker, a proven Championship performer, who's own clubs supporters seem genuinely gutted to see him leave, would want to sign for us!!!! It can't be true!!!
  13. Rival Signing

    Not for me thanks. Part of me still thinks that season where he banged in the goals was just a bit of a "freak" season. He's 34 and scored 1/3 of his career goals in that one campaign. A good player no doubt but not at that price IMO.
  14. Q & A - Lee Johnson

    I wouldn't say it's terrifying, but you'd think with the injuries to Đurić, Taylor and Wilbs that it would surely be an opportunity for Engvall. And that Bobby Reid / Hinds would be the options on the bench.
  15. Gary O'Neil

    I think in this case, he probably is injured. LJ said in an interview something like "Knowing GO'N, he has probably worked himself too hard over the summer". Its a shame, I had really high hopes for him when he signed but I can't seem him being anything but a "bit part" player this season.
