  1. Hughes on loan?

    Not ours in ownership terms I agree, but similar things have happened before, usually with bigger clubs than Watford or Hudds. On the evidence of the Sunderland game we haven't yet got players in who can do what those two used to do, which means either a complete change in style or some attempt to bring in people to add a bit of class. I used to watch Will Hughes struggle, and sometimes succeed, to bring a dull game to life and provide that bit of magic that he sometimes can. There were also times when he seemed to be almost the only one on the pitch who actually gave a damn. Emotionally I'd argue that he'll always be 'ours' in that we discovered and developed him, just as we did Tom H, whose return I agree is very welcome. Tom Ince is a different case I admit but I still think that if the same scenario were to occur at Hudds I'd have him back on loan, even for a month, unless we can sign or discover someone who could deliver what he gave us (albeit fitfully). COYR!
  2. Hughes on loan?

    hi all Watching Watford right now and our Will hasn't even made the match day 18, what a waste! Which got me thinking...can we get him back on a short term loan to keep him sharp? Also, what if the same thing happens to our Tom at Huddersfield? Thoughts people?
  3. Sunderland v Derby County - Match day thread

    Positives - Carson won us the point with that amazing save, best in the league IMO, back 4 did OK although nervy at times, Keogh led by example, Huddlestone was MOTM for me with some great touches and box to box commitment, Vydra looked sharp when he came on. Negatives - too many similar players up top, Weimann blew his chance to impress, Russell huffed & puffed, Butters/Martin/Johnson underperformed for me. We got a point BUT if we are promo contenders with a supposedly settled/experienced team who mostly know each other against a makeshift relegated low budget supposedly low morale side then we should have been able to find a way to get all 3 IMO. If it's a 4231 then maybe try Huddlestone/Bryson as the 2 then Russell/Nugent/Anya with Vydra up top? On that evidence we are a top 10 side but not top 6...yet... I assume he'll give some of the players who didn't feature last night a run on Tuesday to see if someone emerges as a possible solution to last night's many issues... COYR!!!

    Workmanlike yes...the forecasts that show us finishing 9th again look about right sadly thus far...surprised how fragile we look for such an experienced and costly back 4...the front 3 are getting deeper and deeper in pursuit of the ball...our goal was class though and unlike theirs wasn't a fluky undeserved penalty...Bryson on for Butters anyone? Vydra for Weimann? What would you do?

    We can't have Forest being top at the end of tonight...noooooooooooooo...
  9. Sunderland v Derby County - Match day thread

    We do have what it takes to win this, but the surprising fragility at the back leads me to the conclusion that right now I would take a point...

    If that's a penalty, every game should have about 6 of them...

    Nooooo we don't want the Huddlestone Afro back,,,the smart hair is symbolic IMO...new season, GR probably asking them to look professional, small things but they can make a difference psychologically I reckon...Tom H played worse the longer his hair became IMO...LOL...

    Sunderland on the other hand...N'Dong? WTF do you call THAT hair?
  13. Sunderland v Derby County - Match day thread

    Haircut news - thankfully none of them have stupid hair, even BJ looks slick in the topiary department, Wisdom is sporting the Errol Brown look...
