    best pun i've seen on here in a while and I imagine it'll be lost on most bravo

    If he's anything like Ledley, it'd be a shrewd move...

    Fair point aha. Have to say i'm glad i'm not Cyrus tonight... losing 3-0 to your old club with Chris Baird taking your position

    While I agree with most of this... Christie, a top player... really?
  5. Matej Vydra

    £8 million is looking a bargain now. Always had a feeling he'd turn good but brilliant to see him thriving this season!
  6. Does entertainment/style of play really matter?

    The issue at the minute is that the way we are playing has very obvious weaknesses that have already been exposed this season. It's not about trying to play pretty football, it's about trying to improve the football we play to win more games... That being said, yesterday showed some very promising signs, so I'm hopeful that we'll get the balance right soon

    Great result yesterday at a time where it was important to pick up 3 points. Given the creativity and quality Vydra showed yesterday, dropping him recently for Johnson surely points to the fact that the midfield 2 behind him need support due to a lack of mobility which is a concern. However, Thorne showed yesterday that he may well be very close to returning properly for us and the prospect of a Thorne-Ledley partnership is exciting. Huddlestone has an incredible passing range but when we play using only 2 central midfielders, his lack of pace can sometimes leave him slightly short, he's useful against teams that don't press and should be used as such but Thorne seems a better fit when we need a combination of physicality and technical ability. The defence, barring the slip up in the first half, was generally solid. Forsyth looked better, caught out of position a couple of times but with match fitness hopefully he'll start cutting that out. Similar situation with Lawrence, showed glimpses but there's hopefully more to come as the team starts to click more. Yesterday was an effective performance and got us the result we all wanted but I'm hoping football-wise, there's more to come. We need to start playing with a bit more tenacity and urgency, otherwise the teams that can actually attack will catch us cold I feel. Oh and Nugent winding the Forest fans up has cemented his place in my heart

    I winced whenever anyone even went near him

    Jota hasn't scored for Brum yet... you thinking of Diogo Jota for Wolves?

    stop monkeying around
  12. Baird can do the job in midfield

    Baird and Huddlestone playing together could well contend for the slowest midfield ever witnessed...
  13. Kieftenbeld..... has he really signed?

    Thorne we have no indication as to how his fitness will stand up over the course of the season. Baird has been woeful whenever he's played there due to a distinct lack of mobility, and then Guy and Bird have no experience of any kind at Championship level, hardly stellar backup options if Johnson or Huddlestone gets injured, let alone falls out of form...
  14. Strong squad

    Johnson on the left... one of our least mobile players?
  15. Kieftenbeld..... has he really signed?

    Well we currently don't even have a singular backup so your attempt at sensationalism has fallen a bit flat
