    cheron85 got a reaction from jono in George Thorne - joined Oxford on loan   
    Firstly - Unfortunately (as I have great love for him still) I don't see Thorne playing again for us - Bielik, Hudds, Evans and Shinnie ahead of him plus Bird coming through
    Now, venturing off topic
    Using 13/14 as the Martin benchmark for timing isn't quite right - He was our top scorer that season and the next 2 - Then for some unknown reason he was sent out on a season long loan by a mad-man - Played well for Fulham before screwing himself slightly by trying to come back to us in the January which did for his time at Fulham - Wasn't to do with how well he was playing but the politics of it
    Then Rowett happened and by last season he'd lost his way and a bit of faith from everyone

    Hamer coming in suggests they don't think Mitchell cuts it as backup - Would expect to see him going
    Fozzy has been in first team training all pre-season yet has barely featured - Could have played last night - Would expect to see him go at some point
    Don't see Anya or Thorne forcing their way in with the young players getting the nod over them on almost every occassion
    And I guess Martin is the backups backup now since he didn't feature last night
    I think last night was the showcase of who is/isn't going to be around long(ish) term now - 11 changes yet still no place for Anya. Mitchell and Martin who are fit and no place for Fozzy who might be - Admittedly Thorne injured but also only player with a solid link to a loan move

    As far as I'm aware these are still our players,in our squad, so it's pretty reasonable to be asking questions about their future here,or not as the case may be.
    I would suggest if it offends you,to avert your eyes when you see a thread with their names in....it will save you having to spend your valuable time writing posts criticising those who are interested.

    Anya is out for 3 months. Also, Cocu said this last night...
    “We have a lot of players so if they train well and show me that they are ready with quality then everyone will play this season, as long as we all have one idea on how we play football."

    This all over - And that side didn't even contain our record signing
    I was a little worried that we'd be creatively stunted vs last season but actually Cocu has them playing as a team like I haven't seen in ages - Fluid moves and obviously first time short passes are the style he likes
    I'd be a little nervous still if we lost Lawrence for a few games - So would like to see a creative backup/competition for him

    Challenge has multiple meanings - In this case I mean "dispute with" or "stand against" rather than "dare" or "provocation"

    cheron85 got a reaction from OohMartWright in Wayne Rooney - Signed on a 18 month deal   
    He's one of the best English players of his generation (arguably the best) and has shown over and over again how quick his thinking is and his ball skills are exceptional
    Rooney and Dowell - Creative CMs
    Holmes and Shinnie - Energetic CMs
    Knight and Sibley - Cocu has talked about 3 year plans to bring the young players through - Not sure why people keep acting like they're a central part of the first team squad
    And it seems 100% of them are covered both cash-wise and FFP-wise by the new sponsorship deal
    It's a no lose situation - We get a great player, a great influence and a boost to our profile and potential to make money - We become a more interesting option for investors coming in, we become more enticing for players coming in and we have a player who's done pretty much everything in the modern game training alongside our youngsters every single day and giving them the benefit of his influence - We also help a great player transition into a coach, who will go on to management and always have a soft spot and a connection to us and our club

    cheron85 got a reaction from IslandExile in Scott Carson - Signed for Man City on loan   
    What is this 'Carson is an injury nightmare' nonsense
    4 seasons at the club - He's had one proper injury (last season) - First season he came in as backup to Granty and then took his place for the rest of the season, then 2 seasons as an almost ever present then last season he got an injury Roos took his place
    That's only one real injury right?
    Made a great stop to keep the 3 points on Monday so as far as I'm concerned he's already won us 2 points this season - Tell that to the boo boys 😄

    cheron85 got a reaction from Phoenix in Wayne Rooney - Signed on a 18 month deal   
    32Red could lose every other team in the league they currently sponsor - And it still wouldn't lose them as much coverage as this one deal is getting for them
    I just love so many fans getting angry because the people who run our club are innovators - They checked the rules and then found a way to do something new and different within them - Everyone else should be taking a long hard look at themselves - Leeds fans claim they're a bigger club then us and they have the same sponsor (and a manager with no ethics) so surely they could have done this exact deal too?

    It reports that the sponsorship deal is worth £7.8m over the 18 months. It works out at £100k-a-week. We are paying absolutely nothing then. Belting.
