    back four tomorrow

    If it (Baker's injury) was that desperate, i'm sure we'd have seen a loan CB by now.

    Simple question...?

    Impossible to tell after one game, surely?! We’ll get better (as will Forest). Not too disappointed with today’s effort though, even though we were 2nd best for large parts of the second half. New guys looked all looked good, but Pato looked to be the passenger he was for the 2nd half of last season. Eliasson didn’t look anywhere near the world-beater I was lead to believe he was in pre-season either. Both of these need to show improvement by the end of August, for me.

    C'mon Bryan, sign your contract!

    I've really no idea what his agent is advising him, but when I heard it mentioned before, it made perfect sense - if you're a team with a list of targets at left back/mid, and one has a year to run whilst the others don't (but may have release clauses?), the one with the year left immediately becomes of interest above the others i would suspect. The thing with the asking price is it's our asking price, which would be higher than a price dictated by the fact Joe's soon out of contract. If the buying team get a better deal, would that not allow Joe to negotiate a better-paid deal, so is signing a deal with City really a win for Joe?

    C'mon Bryan, sign your contract!

    But i think, as someone else pointed out on here a few weeks ago, his agent may have advised against signing anything like that, as it makes him a less desirable target for teams than if he only had a year to run. Let's face it, what we think is realistic, and what other teams would think realistic would not be the same fee.
  5. The last beneficial thing he can do for our club is pull in a decent transfer fee, which £10m certainly is. I couldn't give a tinkers cuss that it's Cardiff - In fact, I prefer that he's out of our division (if this all goes through).
  6. One bright spot - at least Flint leaving should see the end of that stupid routine where he stands on the half-way line touchline for goal-kicks and Frankie attempts to put it on his head. Did that ever work, btw? I remember it creating a couple of good chances for the other team last season.
  7. I shudder to think what our crack team of negotiators are going to recoup for the two with only a year left on their contracts

    Famara 6 Game Ban (Merged)

    Would a reduction be a possibility? He either did it or didn't I imagine, so either 0 or 6 game ban - can't see where the middle ground would come into it? he spat in the general direction maybe???

    Famara 6 Game Ban (Merged)

    If he's been charged, the FA should be able to pinpoint the exact second the gob leaves his lips. The vagueness of the timing gives hope that maybe this isn't an open and shut case?

    What was our best 11 of the season?

    Was thinking exactly the same thing - it would have been a 20-goal season for him if not for that lengthy injury. Can't remember how long it's been since Pato had a half-decent game?

    Our wage bill / Cardiff FFP breach

    Who the hell have Reading borrowed their money from? Wonga?!

    Taxi for Frankie

    Sheff U knew exactly what his weakness was, which is why they pressed Frankie at every available opportunity. I’m not sure his usually excellent shot stopping makes up for his other deficiencies any more. As others say, time for an upgrade.

    Is Lee Johnson the right man for the job?

    It's the wins that turned into draws (Sunderland, Leeds, Hull) which is the reason we are not in the playoffs!

    Booing our players (Merged)

    I’d say no; at least he hasn’t been for quite a few months now. I think I preferred him at right back where he was a steady 6/10 at least. Not sure he’s hit even those heights since moving back inside.

    Panini World Cup Stickers.. good start

    Or use laststicker.com - I used it pretty effectively to complete the Brazil 2014 album.
