  1. Which makes no sense as some were already over 21 years old at the end of last season??
  2. That was recorded before the Villa game so possible a few tweaks could happen in light of that. Back 4 and GK appears nailed on based on his comments. Only real doubt is CM partner for James and striker. He made a point at looking at James & Nagy and we look better with Wells up front IMO.
  3. Watch the early ones when they were socially distanced. It was carnage. Johnson could barely string a sentence together. Massively different to Corbyn
  4. He's like Corbyn was at PMQs. He'd just stand up and ask 3 questions and pay zero notice of the answers. Contrast with Starmer who asks then listens to the answer because he's ready to go in for the kill.
  5. 1 0. First game back in Division 2. They put us in the Town End for some reason.
  6. And there was this bloke called Ayling who wasn't bad
  7. Harvs was a quality player and a great bloke.
  8. What a man. Quietly resurrected our club. Never shouted about his achievements but these achievements dwarf any of his predecessors. It would've been easy to play basic football when he took over given our circumstances but what I remember most is his determination that we recover playing football the right way.
  9. Sheff Utd Fulham Bournemouth West Brom Boro Stoke Forest Cardiff Bristol City Swansea QPR Millwall Blackburn Luton Barnsley Birmingham Huddersfield Coventry Hull Reading Blackpool Preston Peterborough Derby
  10. Agree. I think Moore may end up at a league 1 side. Vyner is earmarked to play right back.
  11. Which one is Smeagol and which one Gollum?
  12. Forgot that detail. They really are ****ed aren't they
  13. It seems to be a feature in other countries that a bigger club sells a promising player who has a blocked pathway to a smaller club but has a generous buy back clause written into the arrangement. Is that allowed in England? Can we buy George Nurse back for say £300,000 within the next 2 years ? For example.
  14. He probably knew when he was told 'you're 3rd choice George. But we've just had a offer from Shrewsbury that we've accepted. Do you want to speak to them?'
  15. I suspect that it is low but with a high sell on or some kind of buy back option. Interesting that as soon as Ashton leaves we start doing business with Cotts. Good move for him. I know someone who played left back for Cotts who can't speak highly enough of him
  16. Was tried to the left of Pring and then inside of Pring in the earlier friendlies. Wonder if that was following a discussion with Cotts?
  17. Agree about Eliasson. He's got a touch of Mahrez about him
  18. Cotts looking for him to play the Derrick Williams role?
  19. The least sure I can remember feeling about our prospects. Last season was unique for so many reasons. What we don't know is the long term effects of Ashton's cuckooing of the club. It seems like we've moved past that and with Pearson, Gould and Rennie in place we should progress. What I don't know is the ceiling for improvement. I'm really not that sure there is much between the 'established' Championship sides. Barnsley and Swansea look considerably weaker leaving Bournemouth and the 3 relegated clubs as likely top 6 sides. Literally all the others bar Derby could pull a rabbit out the hat.
  20. I'd take Baker out as there's no point choosing him from the off as he will inevitably get injured. Best to use him sparingly to cover knocks etc. I can see the 3 cbs being rotated a bit because Kalas will be away for international breaks and will need to be rested, Baker is Baker and Atkinson is stepping up a level. Does seem to me we're looking to use Kalas Nagy and Wells from the start. Williams is clearly behind the others though and will probably play v Forest Green but it will take a few weeks before he is a mainstay for league games. It will evolve though. The plan has to be to get the developing players fully up to speed with NPs strategy as they are going to be the ones taking things forward if we ever do get Anywhere
  21. And he didn't play in the final...
  22. It says bucketloads about the shit local media that no one has cottoned onto the fact that a pupil from St Katherines school in Pill just won a bronze medal in the gymnastics.
  23. My biggest fear about these lunatics spouting unjustifiable nonsense is the way their nonsense will be used to try to bully those with genuinely held concerns about the direction of travel with regard to vaccine passports and that is dangerous. Personally I am really uncomfortable with the removal of access to normal things like football, concerts etc if you have not received 2 vaccinations. It does not sit well at all.
