    cheron85 got a reaction from G STAR RAM in Accounts Overdue   
    We don't know if for an absolute fact - But he has been quoted on multiple occasions as stating his frustrations with the FFP rules not allowing him to put more money in

    Wigan's problem seems to be that their new owners have no money
    Our problem is our owner has loads of money he's just not allowed to put any of it into the club because of FFP

    cheron85 got a reaction from Premier ram in Mike Te Wierik - Signed pre contract, joining in the summer   
    As much as I'd like to think that - It's kind of similar to picking up an injury in training - By this time of the season we should have made sure we had enough cover for losing a player whatever the circumstances
    Plus I think Evans did a really good job on Wednesday

    I thought he was poor last night and I haven't really been that impressed with him all season.
    I'd only sign him as we were desperate for CBs.
    Hows 200k sound Brighton?

    cheron85 got a reaction from jono in Rushian Hepburn-Murphy signed on loan for season (under 23s)   
    I've always maintained a good midfield trio at it's simplest should contain a destroyer, a creator and a runner - Bird, Rooney and Holmes in our case against Stoke
    If you're lucky you get a more multi-faceted player - For instance I think Bird and Holmes are both able to dictate play more than their 'core role' suggests and Bird can cover a decent amount of ground too
    Interesting that despite very clearly starting out as 2 players deeper and 1 in front we had a lot more support for the attackers in the middle than we did earlier in the season with Huddlestone and Bielik who tended to sit much further back and aren't as mobile

    This for me is the most important thing
    For ages (since Mac1 really) we've had a patchwork squad made up of pieces of other managers teams - Each manager seemed to make his 11 from 2-3 players from an old team, bring in 2-3 of his own and be waiting on the rest to appear/be provided in future windows - Even under Lampard we were only really at our best when the players he brought in were playing
    What's great about Cocu (for me) is he's looked at the squad, decided how he wants to play and who to set up with, learned the league (pretty quickly - I'd suggest half a season to get a measure of a league where you've never played or coached in the whole country before is pretty impressive) and learned what the players are capable of out on the pitch - And then started picking the right players for the right positions - Sounds simple I know but so many of our previous managers were trying to play square pegs in round holes - Johnson in DM for so so so long for instance (which worked well maybe 1 game in 4) - Where Cocu just went "There's a lad in the youth team who can actually play the role I want - Let's play him then"
    He's the first manager in years who looks like he's picking players to play in their actual position - In a formation and style he wants us to play - Rather than picking his 'first team' and squishing them into positions they don't really play just to get them on the pitch

    Very fair point.
    If we do manage it though, you’ve got to think we’ll be in great form going into the playoffs. 

    To be honest, I don’t expect we’ll get enough points out of the remaining fixtures to make it, so with low expectations hopefully I can enjoy the ride.

    No, not good news that he isn't coming back. He is our best goal keeper and on his day one of the best keepers in the championship.
    But, given that Derby think his time with us is over and he will be on a big wage, the fact that Man City want him is win win for everyone.
    Carson clearly had some issues whilst with us, which is why his Derby career literally evaporated, but he seems to have sorted himself out and deserves a fresh start.

    I hate to be Billy Buzzkill on this one - But we're playing 6 of the current top 7 before the end of the season
    Whilst I think we're good (and better than a good few of the teams above us) and have been much better since Christmas - I think it's also worth noting that the teams in the top 6 are there because they've also been pretty good this season
    Leeds and West Brom look very consistent - Forest and Brentford look solid and are going to be very difficult games
    The Preston and Cardiff games are going to be important - But even with that we're likely going to need to beat 2 of the above 4 to stand a proper chance of the playoffs - And I don't see 2 obvious wins there
