  1. No I've not seen him arrive at Bristol Airport getting into a car with the reg SL1...... Not yet anyway Zidane has really gone to town on him recently. Pretty much forcing him out the club saying "we hope he leaves soon, it would be best for everyone". No smoke without fire, but considering what he's won since he arrived and what he's done for the club, it's amazing he's not adored by the fans and club more than he has. Should just go back to Spurs. Sure he'd be wolcomed back with open arms.
  2. Did draft for the first time last season. Finished 2nd amongst the people who took part. Horrible start but did really well come the end. Good fun.
  3. Yes it was. Gartside at the time. Feel for supporters but nothing for the club itself.
  4. West Ham signing Tevez & Mascherano and all the legal stuff that followed. It did relegate warnock though.
  5. Didnt hear it. Bit of a strange one then considering Chelsea's transfer ban. Unless he knows something we dont
  6. Perfect appointment for them. Can't sign anyone. The young players will look up to him, the fans will give him plenty of leeway. Great relationship with the hierarchy. Only surprise so far is that they let dasilva go before he was appointed. Not that I am complaining.
  7. Pretty sure it was the Neymar transfer to PSG which kicked off these recent overinflated prices over the last few years. Sort of a mini domino effect.
  8. With me it's a matter of perception and how this club has changed since Cotterill got us promoted. Back then, I was happy staying up in this league and if we got to the latter rounds of the cups, then brilliant. Now from the last few seasons of finishing just outside the playoffs, it's made me think that we can make it because of the players we have and if that means we treat the cup games differently in order to achieve that then so be it.
  9. Slight crack in the armour there. Opportunities for fringe players so the best players would indeed be rested for it. Last year Pack & Brownhill were running on empty towards the end but they still gave their all. Yes Smith was injured, but LJ should have had more faith in Walsh or signed a loan in January. 2 sides to this. Liverpool would not have won the champions league and got 97 points in the prem if they didn't get knocked out of the league Cup and fa cup so early in their respected rounds. On the other hand, Man City won 3 trophies so would have played more games than everyone else. Course they have the wider better squad to do that.
  10. Interesting to see that the majority would fight on a number of fronts rather than focus on the league. I was just interested in what people's thoughts on it were. For all I know, my fellow otibers were contemplating the idea but didn't want the backlash in case others disagreed. Wonder what people's views would be if we got to the fa cup quarter final against Man City but the game after was Cardiff away which was a must win to catch them for promotion and Cardiff had no game that weekend. Ultimately it is all hypotheticals at present. Here's to a good season
  11. I remember when SL did a Q&A in wolves a few years ago. He spoke about coppell and the wage structure and he was flabagsted as to the amount of money that Hunt, Stewart etc were expecting (not wanting, expecting) yet he paid it because coppell wanted them. He never disclosed how much it was but I wonder if it was in this region.
  12. The last two seasons have produced good league football finishes / positions where we also had good cup runs. The fa cup last year and the league Cup the season before. The additional energy, prep time, travel etc ultimately meant that we ran out of puff come the second half of each of those seasons. It looked like we'd got through it last year but results started to go against us come the end unfortunately. LJ's game plans are very high energy so unless he plans to adapt that somehow, I don't see how we can battle on more than one front considering what's happened the last two seasons. With that in mind, do we play the reserves / kids in the cup matches next year and go all guns blazing focusing on the league alone?
