  1. Don't have a subscription. Does this article confirm we won't have a points deduction this year?
  2. How about Tom Lees on a free? Old-fashioned CB with lots of Championship experience. Could be a good defensive partner for Mengi?
  3. Completely agree. Players like Knight and Bird are regressing due to the state of the club at the moment. Don't want to see them waste their careers being muscled off the ball in League One.
  4. Now that it's a 26-man squad: GK: D. Henderson, Pickford, Pope DF: Walker, Alexander-Arnold, Trippier, Maguire, Stones, Dunk, Dier, Tomori, Shaw, Chilwell MF: J. Henderson, Rice, Phillips, Bellingham, Mount, Foden, Grealish, Lingard FW: Rashford, Sancho, Sterling, Kane, Calvert-Lewin, Watkins
  5. Appalling. First goal so, so soft. Then caught out straight away. Imo Darren Wassall is probably the only current DCFC employee - coaches or players - with a role to play in the club's future. Incompetence everywhere else
  6. Really poor performance. Edmundson, Jozwiak and CKR have played ok but we are so short of quality all over the pitch. Byrne, Forsyth, Lawrence and Waghorn look like League 2 players. And yet... we are one crap set-piece goal, or dodgy penalty, or Lawrence worldie away from survival.
  7. We don't really have any sort of plan in possession. Think that's where the loss of Bielik hurt us so much
  8. Maybe luck is on our side today? Massive let-off when Whittaker took that awful touch, Rotherham make a similar mistake and Adam Armstrong buries it.
  9. Well done Jozwiak. Need everyone to work that hard
  10. I think the forum would come back even stronger. There'd be loads of transfer threads as we build a new squad, fans will be back at games, the club still up for sale, and hopefully a new manager as well
  11. Mel Morris. He's not a bad person, but he has absolutely no idea how to run a football club.
  12. Plus yesterday's "I've told the players I don't care about the performance, just get a result." Looks like they heard the first part of that sentence
  13. If that happens we'll be stuck with Rooney for half of next season and finish 24th
  14. It's crazy how similar his managerial tenure has been to his half-season as a player. Promising start with some good results before a sudden drop-off. By the end he's a hindrance who needs to go but the club can't get rid of
  15. He started the season well, but since new year he’s become our worst player. It’s genuinely like playing with 10 men + Knight running all over the place offering nothing whatsoever
  16. Assuming it's not prohibitively expensive to pay out his contract, should Morris sack Rooney tonight and pray for a new manager bounce?
  17. Pretty embarrassing for Rooney to come out and say he just wants a win and doesn't care about the performance and then we start the game playing like this.
  18. We have as much European pedigree as Spurs, and we've won the league more recently as well. Where's our invite?!
  19. Jury's out on Rooney at the moment. His man management skills appear much stronger than Lampard's - motivating Sibley and Waghorn, getting the best out of Kazim-Richards, bringing through more young players. But the football we play is absolutely dire, and the team selections are consistently pretty unimaginative. Some of this is Cocu's legacy of unpenetrative possession football which obviously needed fixing. The one thing you can say for Cocu is that he used the academy well and integrated youngsters into the first-team squad. I feel like we're going backwards under Rooney in that regar
  20. It'd be a great story to have a female manager in the Premier League or the EFL, but imo clubs need to do more to promote gender equality in the game. The first woman to be a head coach in the NBA is very likely to be Becky Harmon, who has been an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs for several years. I think that experience makes her much more likely to succeed coaching the men's game, as opposed to someone with no track record in men's sport. Why aren't there any women on the coaching staffs at top-flight football clubs?
  21. Crikey. This game sums up Tom Lawrence. Utter poo for 75 minutes, no defensive discipline, questionable decision-making, then scores a screamer. He's like the anti-Jozwiak i.e. terrible all-around game but quality end product. Quite frustrating
  22. Yes, sorry, was always going to forget somone!
  23. I think, if everyone's fit and in-form, that is probably our best starting XI.
