  1. Its in our interest to Support a salary cap, dont know how it could apply to relegated premier league clubs though
  2. With hindsight, picking brunt from the start to anchor midfield against villa was always going to be tricky. Bringing him on after 65 minutes or so with fresh legs is much more reasonable. hopefully bakinson starts for the foreseeable future, but at some point its likely he will have a downturn in form.
  3. To be fair, newcastle have needed an international class goal scorer since shearer retired, and nakhi wells isnt that.
  4. Its great! anyone else notice Dasilva full training gear in the background too??
  5. Bakinson has made a massive impact,,, id assumed he would be sent out on loan to league 1, and eventually fell by the wayside. i will put my neck on the block here, and say for the sake of the pathway, and playing a brand of football that we saw against Northampton, and hopefully will see more of in the championship, that weimann and pato ought to be moved on. if everything clicks, with bakinson, morrell, walsh williams and palmer, that could form the basis of our midfield for years to come, or until they get sold.
  6. To be fair, the squad is obviously overloaded in midfield, and we are down to 3 fit centre backs and we play with 3 centre backs. If we can guarantee baker and kalas along with mawson will be available for selection for every game then fine, but as it stands, we better hope that nothing happens to mawson.
  7. Will be interesting to see what happens over the season,,, in terms of age and ceiling, paterson is a less attractive option than walsh and palmer. He cant afford too many off days when walsh is back, but it seems holden really likes him, and has started the season as one of the preferred starters
  8. If it was me, nagy is bottom of the pile, because he hasnt shown hes able to produce consistently in the championship from the games played. Massengo has played a similar number but is much younger, walsh and morrell havent really had the chance yet to show what they can do, Williams is an established championship midfielder, and brunt has only just come in, and wont be expected to play every game. its reasonable to expect bakinson to lose form/ pick up knocks, but as it stands, hes earned the right to be first choice. will be interesting to see how it pans out... in terms of age, an
  9. Id suggest at this point, the owner and his family has a history and experience of making better decisions in running the club. He has actually made an investment which has resulted in top flight football, and indeed they qualified for europe. i suspect if you asked most football fans to choose who is more likely to be in the premier league in the next 5 years, most would be saying stoke over us.
  10. Im seeing a lady from stoke, and spend a few days a week up there. We dont go into the centre, but the rest of it is rather a dump, abandoned factory buildings, lots of areas needing development. Apart from the area around the wedgewood factory, which is bloody nice, and some of the surrounding villages.
  11. I beleive in terms of attendances, the next biggest clubs who havent played in the top flight in the last 30 years are us and preston, and we are very similar sized clubs. when you see the names who have spent at least 1 season in the top league, blackpool, hull, wigan, huddersfield, bournemouth, swindon, cardiff, swansea, reading etc etc, it really is sad how badly we have been managed over the years.
  12. Im pretty sure early in the northampton game that kalas got nailed by their big striker, and was holding his shoulder area. Then 2 minutes later the actual injury occurs and he goes off. If something wasnt right, kalas could have come off straight away and got it checked out... just like baker does. But he didnt, and fingers crossed hes back soon. as an aside, the evening post website does an interview with bentley where bentley says he spoke to kalas who was upbeat, after the Northampton game.
  13. Kinda feel sorry for massengo having to play that game alongside paterson and weimann, its put him at the back of the queue but it wasnt his fault he was left exposed. Had he played alongside bakinson tonight he would have someone to share that defensive responsibility. i appreciate weimanns work rate, but i really hope he comes out of that midfield role now
  14. Does it really need the chairman to be so hands on with kit design?? Its almost like he was given a packet of crayons and told to come up with a kit while daddy and mark go about being the football people
