  1. No one can blame him if he does sell - he’s not just put money, he’s put his heart and soul in, and been let down.
  2. I totally get the desire to build patiently and let a manager have time. The results this year from a very young under 23s and the under 18s are a genuine source of comfort, but next year’s first team has very few secure building blocks and that’s a big worry if we’re relying on progression.
  3. So summary after this window shows how many (11) are off the wage list fully or partially. Added to last year’s clear out that’s huge - plus still more to come with 6 senior players out of contract in May. in: cole (till end of season) King (till end of season) back from loan Babos, Gordon out: Butterfield (loan till end of contract) Pearce (loan till end of contract) Ledley (paid off) Thorne (loan till end of season) Elsnik (loan till end of season) Mitchell (loan till end of season) Mcallister (loan till end of season) Still out on loan - Blackman (till end of contract) Martin (till end of season) Thomas (end of season) Lowe (end of season) Other contracts ending 2019 Davies, Huddlestone, Bryson, Johnson, Roos, Ollson. on naughty step Anya Last transfer window in - Marriott, holmes, malone, evans, Josefzoon, waghorn in (loan till end of 18/19) mount, wilson, tomori Out: Vydra, Bent, Shackell, Baird, Guy, Vernam, Hanson, Jerome, Weimann, Zanzala
  4. He loves a dive after the ball’s gone past him - maybe he’s just cold.
  5. Actually think this is what we expected. Awful pitch, cold and windy against a team used to playing in mud. Bogle and Bennett impressing. Strange bench but shows we’re planning long term.
  6. actually don't think Callum is even at Stamford any more - certainly not playing and not in their website squad. Still only 26. When he scored that goal against West Ham, would have expected a different story.
  7. While not ignoring that we’ve had some fantastic moments this season - man u, chelsea, west brom, norwich etc ... what a job Bielsa has done - that is a squad that was mid table last year and has now lost saiz and viera - keeper blackman broke his leg - baker’s gone back to chelsea - there’s a bunch of kids come in - their wage bill is mid table at best. The only money spent under this owner is on bamford, who’s hardly played. Hernandez is quality but not new. We outspent them on flo jo. As a club, obviously leeds are as bad as it gets and Allioski as irritating as you get but Bielsa - he’s a miracle worker
  8. Just to make you happy and to continue this forum’s tradition of 2+2=5. Chelsea recall Lewis Baker from loan at Leeds in order to loan him to a championship club - we made an approach for him (4 years ago) - it clearly adds up
  9. Agree with all those three points Texas a) Flo-Jo little threat and the bad decision making of a player lacking practice. b) Marriott much better than Nugent as a line leader - though it’s just pointless putting high balls towards him. c) Waghorn - don’t know what he’s done wrong - so many good first touches in a way that accelerated attack. In general, good job that City aren’t very good - lots of opportunities for them and though we looked the better side, they could easily have won. Should be no suprise that the side that brought our best form (wilson and mount in the middle, waghorn and lawrence wide, Marriott up front) still looks the best balance, but our available bench strength has quickly changed to be a weakness (in the absence of ollson/forsyth/davies/bennett/johnson/lawrence/thomas/lowe and the persona non grata - martin, butterfield, thorne, anya, elsnik, blackman, babos) Sure Frank/Jody picked out flo-jo and Duane and Malone to join the squad based on good intelligence, but not convinced they’re better than thomas and bird and lowe. Tomori, Wilson and Mount have been great loans but today just felt a throw back to some of the toothless managers of the past.
  10. Watched on the feed - another nervy finish but awful weather in the second half - we looked lightweight in midfield and lost a lot of 50-50s - normally sympathetic to Lawrence, not today. But big credit for an away 3 points and up to 3rd (at least till sheff u at Reading), Holmes doesnt look like a man to defend a lead but battled hard when he came on. Callum McDonald rather than Wisdom on the bench - have we given up on Wisdom as well now ? January could be interesting - potentially freeing up wages from Butterfield, Anya, Thorne, Wisdom (I’d keep Pearce) might allow a couple of improvements. (And nice to see Luke Thomas score again for Coventry)
  11. Top goal by Jack from a cross slightly behind him - Bogle targetted by Wigan early on so great to see a bit more confidence from him going forward - Frank needs to protect Wilson from himself, take him off if we get a second ?, - Gibson done a good job for Wigan since he came on. We need to be careful here
  12. you're right ! Blackman on as a sub as Sporting Gijon won with an injury time goal...
  13. today's update... League 1 Offrande Zanzala started again for Accrington Stanley - but substituted after 85 in 1-0 defeat at Rochdale Coventry up to 6th - Luke Thomas again starring without scoring - 'Coventry looked more menacing after the break and they should have scored when Luke Thomas won the ball on the halfway line, did all the hard work by dribbling his way into the area, but failed to find the finish' Callum Guy didn't play for Blackpool in v Burton Jamie Hanson started for oxford in their defeat V Bradford, Mitchell back on the bench League 2 Kellan Gordon came on as a 2nd half sub and Jason Shackell played the full game for top of the table Lincoln City as they drew 1-1 with 4th placed Mansfield for whom Timi Max Elsnik came on as a late sub. Farrend Rawson started as Forest Green as they won away at Carlisle United Charles Vernam scored his 2nd of the season, from a Ben Pringle cross as Grimsby drew 2-2 at Northampton In the foreign leagues max lowe started for Aberdeen, but they lost 3-0 to Motherwell. Alex Babos appears to be finally playing for Real Union - 3 games this season according to Soccerway nick blackman still not appearing for Sporting Gijon though..
  14. Luke Thomas and Max Lowe back pls.
