    Golden Generations

    Great topic. I'd not include a squad having a good run in one tournament as a "Golden Generation". I think a "generation" needs to hold together as a squad for at least two tournaments, and often be bookended by failure to qualify for a tournament. Also need at more than one name of real quality. @Red Right Hand, of yours I'd put Croatia in the latter (unlucky v Germany in Euro 96), and Turkey. I'd put Bulgaria and Denmark more in the "Golden Performance" category. I would add Portugal 2000-2004, Ghana 2010-14, Sweden 1994 - 1998, Nigeria 1994-98, France 1980-86 to the list. I think England 1966 a good shout because of 1968 and 1970.

    The Mass Exodus

    I think this needs to be pinned at the top of the forum. I find it frustrating seeing how often a misinterpretation of this line gets thrown around.

    West Brom actually making move for LJ!?

    Has he said that? Didn't realise.

    Championship 2018/19

    I think that list of teams is looking pretty tough. Particularly if Hull, Birmingham, Forest, Reading have all got their act together much more compared to last season. Could be a challenging season for the likes of QPR and Ipswich.

    West Brom actually making move for LJ!?

    I could live with swapping Johnson for Darren Moore. Will be ridiculous if WBA don't offer Moore the job.

    4 wins in 20 Games

    This thread is a great piece of trivia. I've got Bournemouth before this season.

    Sacked in the...(predictable thread)

    The weird thing is that in the first half of the season, his game management was good. But since January he's gone back to the poor run last season.

    I’ve worked out where it all went wrong

    I was chatting a couple of days ago about the key "sliding doors" moment for our season. My top 4 were: We lose honourably to Man Utd, getting confidence but no distraction / cockiness. FF not sent off v Wolves (Edit: can't argue with the points above about keeping Flint up front). Bobby gets a pen v Bolton. Kent passes to Pato at 3-0 v Sunderland.

    Agree with 90% of that. I do think that if Mags leaves the ball to run through, Fielding’s either conceding or getting a red card.
  10. Am I the only person who thinks Preston are a good high-energy side who don't let teams settle? And that actually we've had a few decent moments there considering the aggression from Preston.

    Grigg .... one that got away?

    LJ said 3 transfer windows until we see how a Lee Johnson side plays. I think it's clear that he has delivered on that. 6m for Grigg would not represent value for money in my book.

    Cardiff Home End

    There is a clear difference between alternative views and talking about holding a vote on whether somebody should have to leave the forum. Particularly so when that person has not trolled, bullied, insulted or threatened anybody at all. Albeit it would be wrong even if the forum user had done that (noting there is a difference between a poll and a decision by mods to suspend on the basis of breaching forum rules). Frankly, I think the proposal from Tetbury Massive, and the way it has been communicated is utterly appalling and unedifying. I'm embarrassed by it appearing on this forum as a proposal, hence feeling moved to make this comment.

    Cover at Right Back

    Seems to me that the issue is in part how important Korey has become in midfield. Earlier in the season there was a genuine central midfield question as to two from Korey, Pack and Brownhill. Last night showed that we need Korey in the middle. As for right back, I'm not sure how I'd approach the next two games. If this Andrews kid is looking alright, maybe try him v Sunderland. Or switch to 3-4-1-2 with Brownhill as wing back.

    Baker 3 game ban CONFIRMED (Merged)

    From my perspective, we let it go. Baker gets a couple of weeks to recover from his recent "niggles". We have two games that we should be able to win without him. Leeds is a pain, but we might be able to pull a win or draw out of the bag there as well. Then he's ready for Fulham, which is looking increasingly important a fixture. Edit - I could have waited and just said "What @WhistleHappy says".

    QPR game live international coverage

    To be fair, there are worse things in the world. And like you say, good reasons we're not able to watch. But when the match isn't being shown in my country it's a bit daft. As a minimum they need to think about a per match / rebate system.
