  1. Chelsea??? More likely Sheff U watching that game tonight. They haven't got a player close to being world class.
  2. You want a truce on a forum? Wouldn't it be simpler to shut it down? What is the matter with people that they are unable to accept people have a different opinion to them?
  3. It may help his confidence and belief if he is told 'you're the best we've got so get on with it
  4. He wasn't captain of Man Utd and he was unquestionably the best at set pieces in the squad..
  5. You may well be right. My point is he should be the main man always as he is clearly the best at it. Manure didn't give the 2nd corner to Giggs because it was his turn. Beckham took all of them because he was unquestionably the best at them..
  6. Am I right in thinking Eliasson didn't take a single one today? The one major impact of making Brownhill captain is that he nows pulls rank over Eliasson or, worse still, allows Paterson to take one of his floaty, non-dangerous corners. It is unforgiveable that one of the best dead ball specialists in the league is 3rd in line to take our corners.
  7. Probably but it makes no difference. We've not outdone ourselves like Charlton being 7th in the Premiership. We're in the pack of a mediocre Championship with a very good set of players not playing well. People were horrified when Southampton sacked Atkins and gave the job to some Argentinian and that worked.. Atkins had taken Southampton where he could and they wanted someone to manage talented players at a higher level... to keep improving. The lack of evident ambition is what gets me. Not the need to be solvent but the notion that bobbing along is what we should be happy with. It's entirely in the mind and not about money. We don't seem to want to get to the Premiership when the opportunity presents itself. I'm 48 and have watched some dogshit sides get to the top division since 1980. Blackburn even won it! I make it 21 sides smaller than us in terms of core support.. Bradford, Swindon, Bournemouth, Swansea, Notts County, Wigan, Huddersfield, Bolton, Hull, Cardiff, Burnley, Blackburn, Millwall, Oxford, Reading, QPR, Luton, Watford, Barnsley, Wimbledon, Blackpool and finally Oldham. The infrastructure is in place to get promoted and make a fist of it, we just need to actually want to do it. If you don't get what I'm saying, just compare how Pat Lam talks about his ambitions for Bristol compared to how Johnson talks about his ambitions for City.

    Those fractured eye lashes are really painful and require immediate treatment...
  9. True. Perhaps they should take a leaf out of Elisasson's book and pass the ball into an area. Eventually our strikers might cotton on.
  10. It's not nonsense about the amount Johnson has spent. It's factual.
  11. 'See the presser'? You get more truth from a North Korean newspaper.
  12. That doesn't address the main point though. Who has the final say? Rumours around the time that Cotts didn't and it certainly seems like Mark Ashton seems to sign players at the moment. We are an extremely attractive proposition. Financially stable with a decent squad and a record of giving coaches/managers a fair crack of the whip.
  13. But Brownhill is captain and pulls rank. Really not good that this is the only noticeable impact of his being made captain. It's not been a success and now that Smith and Williams are back playing regularly seems ludicrous. I'd rather it went to Taylor Moore as he seems like a natural leader to me.
  14. That is why the line about consolidating and building slowly is a load of tosh. We had the basis of a very good Championship side - we just needed to add better players. Cotts clearly tried to but for one reason or another wasn't able to.
  15. That's a whole thread of it's own. We need good defenders at full back first and foremost and we most definitely didn't have that yesterday.
