  1. So long as it’s not in Moderna, AstraZeneca or Pfizer.
  2. I've always thought that Neil Young's was superior. Particularly "Ambulance Blues" which is a great title for this season's club VHS release.
  3. Knowing UEFA, they will smuggly assume that all this is down to the average fan’s love and appreciation for the work they do. Whereas, in England at least, the feeling is that they’re as corrupt and self-serving as the people in charge of these football clubs. Reform needs to take place at all levels and I would suggest UEFA, FIFA and probably all the other governing bodies should be included in that. For a start they absolutely do not require the revenues they demand to administer the game and should have less say over sponsorship. The most crucial thing about all of this is that ho
  4. I mean, I love Shaun Taylor but he missed virtually all of 98/99 injured...
  5. Bearing in mind how awful we are at home it makes sense that they would try and give themselves the advantage!
  6. Enjoyed it, as always. I’ve unnecessarily focused on @Dave L’s comment regarding there being a power vacuum at the time we were imploding under McInnes in light of today’s re-ignition of certain news!
  7. I would also add to this that a new manager who has much higher expectations of a player’s overall performance in all facets and is prepared to tell them they are not performing adequately without an arm around the shoulder and a bucket of sugar on top rarely gets an immediate response. Especially if said player has effectively been told they have been performing to an acceptable level for a considerable time prior to this. As has been mentioned on another thread, the parallels between Gary Johnson’s appointment and initial few months in charge and Nigel Pearson’s so far has been remarkab

    Nigel Pearson

    This is a really fair point that had never really thought about before, but I’d get the feeling Gary O’Neil, in particular, would be a complete lieutenant for a manager like Nigel Pearson. Someone he, no doubt, would greatly respect for his playing career, wealth of managerial experience and general demeanour whereas it was pretty clear he had no real regard for Johnson whatsoever. To me, at least. It reflects badly on GON, of course, as I am sure LJ, not unreasonably, expected his experience and leadership to be a central part of our team, GON’s injuries notwithstanding, but didn’t have

    This has the feel of Gary Johnson’s first few games. Poor performances and results but slowly getting a handle on a squad that had clearly been living on easy street (in one way or another) during the previous long term manager (Wilson/Lee Johnson) and the following internal appointment (Tinnion/Holden). Clearly I am hopeful that he achieves something similar at a level above.

    Didn't he want Bryan and Flint and offered something like £5 million for the pair (it could have been less) and seemed genuinely surprised that we said no? Bless him.
  11. Lee here, accusing Best of "simulation". I suppose he should know.
  12. ’I come to you, defences down. With the trust of a child’ Pretty much sums us up!
  13. Fair enough. I would’ve said Williams was the (delayed) replacement for Brownhill though? I don’t deny he likes a tackle, but I’m not sure he’s best used in the role I’m thinking of? I was thinking more along the lines of Korey (sigh) or even Pack... though ideally without Marlon’s obvious lack of pace.
  14. Personally I think our midfield needs an overhaul as well. I like the players but not one of them has a natural game to screen our back line either as a destroyer or a quarterback. It’s a real problem not having anyone who can do that to a decent standard. Brunt and, I suspect, Lansbury were brought in to do that... eugh.
