    Two words.  Bobby and Zamora...
    If that little bell-tard had done what he did best during most of his career and shanked into row Z, we'd have gone on to win that game in extra time.  I sincerely believe that echoing what his mentor The Bald Eagle did after his promotion, Schteve would've made only a handful of astute signings to compliment the young, hungry players we already had, survived at a canter, and be a solid mid table Prem team, flirting with European qualification & a cup final by now.   That is until his young whipper-snapper of an assistant Paul Simpson is tempted away by Man U, and it all turns to crap...

    Was Connor salmon more of a disaster than blackman?
    Certainly not even close if u look at it pound for pound 
    at times, and I’m being careful with what I say there Cos he was crap, but there were a handful of occasions (thinking boro at home, Watford away) he came on and made a telling positive impact
    blackman.......
    And salmon seems to be the one he gets hit over a stick with 
    We still rely (or were after recent weeks events) on Martin and keogh who signed some god knows how long ago for about a third of what we paid for blackman lol
    any how i wont turn this into another Nigel clough dance, as ultimately he was tactically niece as much as I liked him

    Playoff final 93/94 still smarts. My 7 year old self hasn't quite let that one go. Also the fact that we didn't get up with that Keogh, Thorne, Hughes, Martin, Hendrick, Russell side. Definitely some of the best football I've watched as a Ram. Deserved more.
    And Nigel's sacking. That is still disappointing. And we still haven't been promoted despite all the ambition and money thrown at it...

    I wasn't picking on Sammon in particular, well OK, I did a bit, but my point was however brilliant NC was at bringing in VFM players on a shoestring, I wouldn't have escalated that in line with money spent, I think nigel could find you a £0.5m player for a free transe or £0.1m,or for £0.5m
    I don't think nigel could find a £10m player for £5m.
    I've got plenty of respect for what nigel Clough did and the constraints he was under. He was also treated very badly by the club when he was sacked (imo). I did think Sammon was poo though.
    However, the post nigel spending ended up in lawsuits between Mel and Rush, so, perhaps we'd have ended up with the players Rush pushed through regardless.

    I really didn't mind Sammon. He was pretty quick and a very useful weapon at opening up games late on during Mac 1. When Martin used to struggle against the Hanley/ Flint types he was the one who came on and gave them a problem creating space for others.  Shaun Barker rated him highly as a useful option in the squad .

    I’d be surprised if we switched formation tbh, cocu seems quite rigid in at least starting with a 4231. We lack centre halves to rely on a three at the back anyway. Think it’s more likely Rooney will be deployed as a number ten somewhat like:
    Hamer
    Bogle Davies Clarke Lowe
    Bielik Shinnie
    Holmes Rooney Paterson
    Martin

    Just setting off now, on our way down. Bit of a last minute puppy eyed look at the missus, battered the eyelashes a few times for good measure and she couldn’t resist.

    He was limping badly for the last 15 minutes or so.
     I didn’t think he looked fully fit yesterday and he might benefit from the break.

    Genuine question 
    why has it taken 11 games, a tom Huddlestone injury and realisation that Dowell isn’t good enough for shinnie to be involved 
    I question cocus thought process or at least would love to know the reasoning why ... purely out of interest, not having a pop just curious to know the logic when we’ve been so obviously craving some mobility and tenacity In that area of the park

    NottsRam77 got a reaction from DavesaRam in Luton Town (H) Match Thread   
    My counter to that would be
    What about the other players being more mobile, tenacious and physical ? 
    Surely it’s called having a balance 
    not having a pop just playing devils advocate
