  1. Keep reading this title as DigerDiedhiou - like the Aussie Aboriginal instrument. This could be my new nickname for him...not used Dave and its much better!
  2. An interesting dilemma, Weimann won’t give their defence a moments peace / rest...do you let him do that for 60 mins and then bring on Nahki? He should be able to torment an already tired / fatigued, both physically and mentally, defence. We are now starting to have quality options everywhere, even more so if / when Afobe returns...great problems to have @Olé - as always, great write up
  3. Why are you having a conversation with yourself? No need to answer...this explains it

    I think the mods have done you a massive favour. I see the police are now investigating this under the Malicious Communications Act...believe it or not, anyone who shares such content may be committing an offence! I know your intentions were purely innocent as you were as totally disgusted but this is a great reminder to all about sharing content online and on here...the last thing we want is to attract unwanted attention.
  5. For me, he seems to be on his ‘heels’ a lot...very reactive to through balls, and therefore looks slow, rather than making runs and being ‘on the front foot’. That’s the difference with Benik, he plays on the shoulder and is looking to make runs and is proactive, so is viewed as more mobile.
  6. I’ve heard he’s really pissed off that a thread about him has been derailed by a troll!
  7. The first thing I though of was The Goonies...’Hey you Guys’
  8. Maybe a petition is required so it can be discussed in parliament? Bound to get enough signatures to do this...safe standing maybe the best way to position it. (Can’t recall if a petition has been performed before hence the question) No point starting it now...they can’t discuss it until mid October anyway!
  9. So they have decided to employ the officials behind the goal line and they do absolutely nothing but now want to get rid of the linesman? Unbelievable. The refs need all the help they can get...removing the lino’s will lead to more cheating, diving, etc, etc in the corners. Leave the game alone FFS, it wasn’t broken - most of these changes, including VAR, are ruining our beautiful game.
  10. The majority of those were scored away from home...wonder if the reaction from the fans at home affected his performance? Can see Palmer & Szmodics forming a great partnership with Afobe...lots of balls threaded through for Afobe. We’ve been missing this sort of player for a couple of seasons.
  11. Szmodics as cover for Palmer We could have Weimann up top as a replacement for either Diedhiou or Afobe Could drop Palmer and place a winger - Eliasson or O’Dowda - on the left in a more conventional 442. Plenty of options now
  12. Don’t have a problem with this...will clear the path for Szmodics to play more regularly. Haven’t seen him yet but others suggest he’ll be better than Pato
  13. How can we get more than £1M for Eisa, a reserve player going to League 1 and less for a proven Championship player signing for a Championship club. Something is rather odd if that’s the case. Must have been desperate to trim the wage bill
  14. Spud, agree with most of this especially the description of the players. My only concern, and it is only that at this stage as I’ve not seen a lot of the newbies play, is that we don’t have that experienced head to put their foot on the ball and ‘calm’ things down when we may need too. Most of the new guys, especially in midfield, are youngsters...we could maybe do with a bit of experience just to take the sting out of the game now and again.
  15. Unbelievable. We’ve sold players to the tune of £80M in the last three years, invested wisely to do so whilst progressing (finishing higher each year) yet some are still happy to bash the club before seeing any of these players in action. Some people are only happy when they’re moaning.
  16. Could be the Nagy deal? He is Hungarian...currently playing for Bologna.
  17. CO’D is one of the players we need to move in permanently before the window shuts so I assume it was LJ attempting to put CO’D in the shop window before the deadline; backfired big time though as he had a poor game.
  18. Form is temporary, class is permanent. The leadership team changed at Brentford last year; the coaching, discussions and overall environment many not have been to Bentley’s liking, as a result he may not have been able to perform at his best. He is talented and I think we have the setup and ambition to help him flourish. Good signing - welcome Daniel.
  19. I’ve always taken the emoji to mean nob-head! After all, the picture seems to reflect that!
  20. Is he suspended though? Thought a suspension for 10 yellow only counts up to and including 37 league games...we’ve now played 38. By my reckoning, he will only get a suspension for yellows if he reaches 15 by the end of the season.
  21. Not long after the redevelopment was finished Mark Kelly, I think, asked fans to vote for the stadium of the year. The following was taken from that website; City presumably had input but I’ve no idea if this is wholly accurate...think this was due to be the final capacity once the media stuff (back of Dolman, etc) was removed.
  22. Thought that would happen tonight. Felt for sure the ref would send one if ours off...and Pack was the most likely. we do need cover in this area...how long before Korey is ready??
  23. No more than Paterson does when playing the same role. Needs to learn to play the simple ball rather than trying to beat everyone...that will come. Thought he was better off the ball tonight than previously...still needs to work on this but did close others and press
  24. Felt like we were trying to force it, they were anxious to get back to winning ways. Rather than play the football we’ve seen recently we played lots of long balls which played in to their hands. We will learn from this and bounce back. Bad day at the office, a few poor performances but we will bounce back. Yes, the ref may have been poor but we didn’t do enough to win the game...we certainly didn’t test their keeper or create many decent chances. Move on to the next game...surely we’re due a result at Deepdale??
  25. On a similar theme. He comes from Senegal, Diedhiou, Diedhiou, He’s big n strong and good with the ball, Diedhiou, Diedhiou He’ll score the goals to win the match We’ll celebrate with a can of natch Famara Diedhiou, he’s our number 9 Ok, maybe not then...I’ll get me
