  1. Richard Keogh - always got a mistake in him

    WhoScored had Hughes performing at a 7.2 under Pearson. In his TOTS and POTY campaigns he averaged under a 7.
  2. Richard Keogh - always got a mistake in him

    I value my own judgement of players over Clement's to be fair
  3. Richard Keogh - always got a mistake in him

    Again. As was Peter Whittingham in; • Three failed play-off campaigns • A mid-season collapse whilst top resulting in mid-table • Needing just two points from the final four league games to clinch a play-off spot and failing to do so • A lost cup semi-final • A lost cup-final. And yet after all that he The Championship with Cardiff! It's football, not an exact science. Keogh isn't the substance preventing a chemical reaction. It's far too simplistic without any footballing discussion that one player can undermine an entire team over the course of six years.
  4. Best XI since we got relegated

    Gonna try and be a bit hipster here. Grant Brayford Barker Shackell Fozzy Ince Thorne Hughes Ward Commons Hulse Barker and Shackell together were just about the only time you'd trust a Clough team to see the game out. It's no coincidence that our best spells in 08/09 and 09/10 came with Commons and Hulse up front together. The pair of them would have dragged an awful Derby team into the play-offs had they stayed fit simultaneously for a season.
  5. Richard Keogh - always got a mistake in him

    I wouldn't say we do anymore. We try and work it to Huddlestone and go long if we can't. Which would be the argument for cashing in on Keogh and signing a better defender. The arguement for him starting currently is that we supposedly want a high-line and need his pace. Perhaps Shackell and Pearce away from home when were being pegged back anyway?

    Wes Morgan literally won the Premier League
  7. Richard Keogh - always got a mistake in him

    Peter Whittingham was at Cardiff for a collapse in 06/07 and four consecutive play-off losses. Must have been his fault, one constant.
  8. Is Rowett up to the job

    I raise you Nigel Pearson
  9. Richard Keogh - always got a mistake in him

    The mouth breathers who lambast Keogh on the moan-in are the same people who think the reason the expensive players don't perform is that they don't care, passion blah blah blah Funny really
  10. What if McClaren had never been sacked ?

    Billionaire backed Bournemouth. He's spent £34,000,000 on Ibe, Cook, Mousset and Mings and they're being kept out of the side by 30 somethings. What's he waiting for? If they're not good enough now they're not going to be so they're either poor buys or he doesn't have the bottle. He's flat out wasted money on the likes of Grabban, Tomlin, Iturbe, Wiggins, Brad Smith and Marc Wilson. £17,000,000 there on under 25 league appearances. His only real bargain since promotion has been Josh King. Hes stopped giving youth a chance, he's stopped picking up bargains and he's been dreadful when spending the big bucks.
  11. What if McClaren had never been sacked ?

    This is the thing though, he showed in October through to December that he isn't a one-trick-pony. So why didn't he just have us grind those last ten games in 14/15 out?
  12. What if McClaren had never been sacked ?

    Lost faith in Howe. He's spent £130,000,000 since promotion and yet eight of their first choice outfielders have been there since promotion (four player in L1 too). Doesnt look as if he knows how to improve on what was already there or suffers from 'they're expensive so theyre guaranteed to be gooditis'.
  13. Best and worse 3 managers in the last 40 years.

    He had three months to sign a player for that role?!
  14. Is Rowett up to the job

    Worth noting that Wagner didn't have to clear out the squad. He sold their stars and built a new team with the money.
  15. What if McClaren had never been sacked ?

    What does that make everybody who did worse than him?
