  1. SJ actually looks like that Hastings bloke off TV series Line of Duty!!!!
  2. Reading the forum there seems to be a consensus that the midfield is our problem. I've posted many times on here that we seem to go for quantity not quality. If we look at the creative aspect of midfield being the main area of inadequacy then I have to ask the question that last summer had we made an offer [wages & fee] that couldn't be refused for Bannon with him covered by Morrell & Walsh would that have been inferior in skill or lower in cost to what we have now which is Nagy, Massengo & Palmer the latter three costing us a shed load and contributing nothing / very little.
  3. Yes it does No he wouldn't
  4. If it happens again [he gets approached] I wish he'd just sod off. He knows SJ would have him back again in the future.
  5. So ends the case for Weimann being the first name on the team sheet. Lots of running but little else
  6. With the away game at Reading being postponed due to their ongoing cup commitments there is a 13 day gap before the away game at QPR. Will LJ and his coaching team be taking the lads off to Dubai for a winter training camp in readiness for the final 18 game push for the play offs or will he allow them a natural break for family time or, for the single chaps, a week's holiday in the winter sun in Dubai, Cancun, Maldives etc etc.?
  7. Wholeheartedly agree with that view!!!!
  8. Said it many times before, we would be better off having 10 £25k per week players than 20 on £12.5k which is where we are now. Clubs in the bag & all that - ****ocks!
  9. A side modeled in his own image from a playing perspective!
  10. As the OP I stated LJ has had 7 windows with the upcoming being number 8. There seems some dispute over this but I am right: Summer 2016 [1] Winter & Summer 2017 [2] Winter & Summer 2018 [2] Winter & Summer 2019 [2] Upcoming is winter 2020 [1] That's 7 with one to come. Phantom's list of the 50 bought by the manager was helpful in bringing into focus that there are some good but a lot more totally duff signings. LJ has made a handsome profit on signings and there is upgrade to the squad overall of that there is no doubt but I subscribe to the view that we have too many average championship quality players rather than the perhaps more difficult to manage stars. As I and others have written it is squad built in his own image - perhaps this is what Holden meant in the presser the other day when referring to "our DNA". We haven't had a discernible DNA [playing style] since the high press of the August to December period of 2017 when we sort of fluked it by Bobby Reid playing in a way no one could have envisaged even 6 months earlier. An interesting few days / weeks coming up.
  11. Are you suggesting Mrs. Lansdown had the previous night's curry for breakfast [her sleeve was visible left edge of screen!!!]?
  12. ...... the SL love affair with the Johnsons' has reached a tipping point. Around about the 16th minute of Sunday's game at Hillsborough the TV camera focused for what seemed like an age on Steve's face and all of us watching felt he didn't have the face of a particularly happy bunny. He hadn't then witnessed the 74 minutes of utter dross that followed on top of had taken place at the previous two home games. What was he thinking? He's created a stadium worthy of the Prem and given his manager the freedom to sign 40+ [?] players across 7 [yes, 7!] transfer windows to assemble a side that has no identity and no shape. He has to listen to Johnson utter such phrases as "we lack leaders.... we need big hearts" etc etc and at the time must be thinking ffs you signed them and you want more! Yes, we have had steady progression but he must look with envy at Bournemouth, Sheffield United & Burnley and think why them, not us. At Brentford & Preston - sustainable models by way of comparison but more clever in the market and tactically more resilient. I don't buy the "have to sell our best players" as an excuse - the squad IS stronger now by some distance compared with 3 years ago. Our coach just does not know how to get the best out of them - key signings Nagy & Massengo on the bench on Sunday, experienced players Baker & Watkins no in the matchday 18. What does success look like between 26/12 & 4 January? For me it goes like this DWDW. If it goes LDLD I think the natives will be restless and the pressure might tell.
  13. Yes it was. In front of Dolman, just in from touchline in line with edge of penalty area. The crack was sickening - like the sound slamming down of one the old wooden seats in the stand at that time. RIP Gerry .... good player
  14. Been doing this his entire career. 100% effort ...... very limited ability
  15. As others, including myself, have said ..... a team built in his own image!!!
