  1. My sisters house backed onto Archie Gemmill's...his pesky kids constantly were hammering footballs against their fence....๐Ÿ™„
  2. No....that would be FAR too logical....๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ
  3. I liked Clarke but I'd say 1. He was never coming back 2. For saying how good I thought he was - we have been susceptible to crosses for so many years and Clarke never seemed to make much difference to that....we still switched off and let in "howlers" 3. The fact that he's gone out on loan for a 3rd season indicates that nobody is willing to gamble on him with a permanent move.... time to move on.
  4. ....I should've included Bird in the Midfield area too...but he's not yet established himself yet I feel...
  5. One of the areas we have holes is midfield. Yes, we have a real talent in Bielik...but he's injured, we have Shinnie and Knight. Yes you may like to add the untried Watson to that group and Sibley / Lawrence....both for me more No.10's. Joz again more of a wide player. So for me we are light in quality in that area. Morrison may turn out to not make it here but I'd say that in there that there's a player that can do a job in the Championship. We cant sign any players involving a fee and we also cant sign players who want high wages....so really we're stuck in the bargain basement aren't we....so for anyone to write off players (as they do on here) before they've even kicked a ball - to me seems crazy. If the Manager has faith in them and signs them on then surely we have to support them. I think many posters on here would rather see us relegated then take on players that they dont see fit to wear the shirt. Make no mistake - another season of struggle awaits us....its all hands to the pump. I dont see any problem with the players Rooney has brought in during the close season. Are they likely to get us promotion - no....are they likely to keep us out of the bottom 3 ...maybe.
  6. No, I think he's suggesting that if you don't like those that are being named then simply come up with better alternatives....
  7. As I said in a previous post I dont know who people expect us to be going in for as things are. We cant buy any players atm so we're shopping in the bargain basement. CKR being a classic. I also remember Paul McGrath being brilliant for us too. In normal circumstances I'm sure we wouldn't be going in for Messrs Jagielka & Stearman....but these aren't normal times are they. In fairness I know nothing of Stearman - but 500 games indicates someone who has had a good career. Having played a similar amount of games Jagielka has been Club Captain for many years and is a clear leader and (correct me if I'm wrong) has 40 England caps...Equally from the video on Ramsplayer both look to have kept themselves in shape....
  8. Looking a Gift Horse in the mouth : The proverbial saying 'don't look a gift horse in the mouth' means don't be ungrateful when you receive a gift.....it amazes me how critical some people can be. Clearly Mengi isn't the finished article....that's why Man.U are considering loaning him out.....who would you like them to loan us....maybe Harry McGuire ???? We didn't do badly with Clarke, Mount, Wilson & Tomori. I'd expect Mengi to be of a similar calibre....
  9. I agree, but the fact is we've had too many players in over the last few years who we've paid zillions for - but have never cut the mustard and left for nothing. IMO we have to follow the path that Wolves and Watford took....having a nucleus of a team and getting in loans (as we successfully did with Mount, Tomori and Wilson). If Rooney doesnt have contacts then nobody does.
  10. I think Waghorn was like Lawrence, an enigma. We never knew where to play him...like Marriott I guess. Was he a Winger....no....was he a Centre Forward...hmmmm...not really either. He'll score goals though....but I think his average is about 10-12 a season. Either we couldn't match his wages or Rooney didn't rate him. No sign of Wisdom though...not training with us - unlike Curtis...
  11. Yeah, I'm really disappointed as he's a gifted player on his day. That said Frank Lampard bought him and hardly played him, Philip Cocu never played him, Wayne Rooney sent him on loan inferring he was lazy and finally he spent 13 games on loan at the Wendies, didn't score - and went AWOL during his spell there. Something just isn't right with the guy....but undoubtably he'll score against us though....
  12. Not saying that Clarke isn't a good player....but if he's THAT good how come we keep conceding stupid goals from crosses... cant see him coming back...nor him wanting to come back....
  13. My thoughts are similar. In the last few games of the season he (for me) was not very influential. Interesting comments though from the DET about his games for Ireland : "Jason Knight is the bright spark here. Big future ahead."...."Jason Knight is going to be a very good player!"...."Jason knight is Irelandโ€™s best player."..."Jason Knight looks like a proper baller. You can see why Wayne Rooney showed faith in him in the last couple of months. Real exciting prospect"...."Jason knight is by far the best player over the 2 games , he running past his own players chasing the ball and going forward he is by far been the best .. what a player he is gonna be"...."Jason Knight has been excellent tonight for Ireland"..."Jason Knight is a player."..."Jason knight is going to be a starโ€ฆ. Two complete performances the past few days"....."A premier league team should take a punt on Jason Knight. Young energetic hard working and might just have the talent to back it up."...."Not a bad 2nd half still the same final 3rd issues. But Kenny will be happy with the performance and a clean sheet. Jason Knight brilliant again. Should be on every XI going forward." Based on that maybe we should think twice before we dispose of our Crown Jewels....
  14. As a total aside to this I watched the U18's beat Man U U18's 3-1 yesterday on youtube. As there were no names on the backs of the shirts I couldn't tell who many of the players were - but there seemed to be some new faces who did look good....
