  1. Noticed from the home leg programme showing pictures from the Leeds game that a certain John Shaw was in goal for the the visitors - he went on to play 285 games for us 1974-1985
  2. Play off final 2008 Bad enough losing McCombe to sickness on the morning of the game but the key moment was this: When Orr went off the sensible move was to bring loanee defender Vasko on and let Carey slot in at right back, a position he was familiar with. No, GJ moved Marvin Elliott to right back to allow the boy [LJ] to slot into midfield - crazy, crazy decision which, for me, cost us the game ...... grrrr For those that can't remember Tamas VASKO: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamás_Vaskó
  3. Nicky Shorey - stole a wage in the 14 games he played during 2013/14
  4. Watched the first two episodes - really good. Downton Abbey for football fans!!
  5. £50 billion in the kitty to fund this already if they drop HS2!!! Look at it another way from an individuals' perspective: roof blows off your house [Covid19] or get a new car [HS2] - no brainer!!!
  6. OK, 319 out of 20000 is 1.6% So, if that infection rate is applied to the whole UK population of 60 MILLION then 960k are going to get it. If you apply a mortality rate of 1% then 9600 will sadly die but that is pretty much on a par with the number of deaths from various strains of influenza each year and this is largely unreported.
  7. Too many players ,no stand outs. Said it many times - we have 4 @ £10k per week not 2 @ £20k and if they get injured have the understudy kids get some game time [Walsh, Moore, Morrell]
  8. Methinks this is his Dilly Ding, Dilly Dong moment a la Claudio Ranieri March 2016!!! Now there was a bloke who got a tune out of a collection of players that surpassed all expectations. For LJ he's talking ***t as he so often does!
  9. Sadly, after 53 years [25/3/67 3-1 vs B'ham City] , I feel exactly the same. We are now an established Championship side and the moaning is not about that but the fact that others have bypassed [had one or more seasons in the Prem] us when, in days gone by, we would see them as our equal or lower:: Bournemouth, Cardiff, Watford, Hull, Swansea, Burnley, Huddersfield, We have had 50 home league games since the defeat against Wolves on the eve of 2018 and we have won just 19 - this is the root cause of the dissatisfaction of many, well it certainly is for me. It is a poor return for the investment that has been made in players and the turgidness of the football is reminiscent of the worst of SOD. I don't buy this "we have sold our best players" - what championship sides don't have to do that and, to a man, they have been replaced by better players. Who'd have thought even 3 years ago we would have had £20M worth of talent sat on the bench?
  10. As the OP on this thread I can see a mixed response of happy clappers, realists and doom mongers - I place myself between the latter two! The "must win x from x" is a valid target since the end game [number of points for a play-off place] is a hard stop figure. Yes, we could win 8 and lose 4 but with a sequence of draws long overdue I cant see that combo happening. How many points do you see us needing / getting Chippenham Red? What ever you say will be derived from x wins from x games! I agree with several others on replies to this and other posts that it is not the defeat from these last two games but the manner of it - in neither have we gone down fighting!!!
  11. Unless we get a couple of 3+ goal wins our pitiful goal difference will be our downfall
  12. Nothing less. Would give us 74 points probably need at least a draw to get to 75. Only 4 losses can be accommodated. For me these are: MILLWALL, FOREST, BLACKBURN & SWANSEA
  13. A side built in his own image

    He's not that much of an upgrade on Niki who could have had Max as his understudy - did the youngster make any errors on a par with the 2nd goal today when he had that run in the team, I can't recall one. Another £2M spent that IMHO needn't have been.
