    His name is Charlie. I have a brief chat with him at every away Test I go to, as he goes to then all. 
    He has a couple of flags. He works with/for the Barmy Army Company.

    sage got a reaction from The Orange Pimpernel in Bielek next season   
    Does the emergence of Max Bird and the disappearance of Keogh mean that Bielek will be playing CB next season?
    Even if Huddlestone goes we may well still have Rooney Evan's and Shinnie who can also play there.
    Our lack of CBs is well documented.

    sage reacted to Tamworthram in Pop Side seating   
    I suspect you're suffering from a small case of selective memory. Whilst by no means always the case, there have been some great atmospheres at PP. Also, if you were in the Popside (I was a regular) it probably seemed like it was noisier because of the low roof and enclosed space. It only takes half a dozen people to make a hell of a noise in my lounge especially if the mother in law is one of them.

    Hi, first time poster, long time stalker of the forum.
    I don't think things are as bad as they look. A new keeper, cb, and a winger and I really think we could push for promotion next season. This is what I would do with the current squad of players with a reasoning. I know this will be unrealistic as you can only sell players if they have a buyer, but here it goes:
    Release:
    Huddlestone - although I think he triggered another year, we already have a lot of depth in this position and he is the easiest player to move on Anya - quite self explanatory, one of the worst value for money buys ever Sell:
    Malone - With Lowe and Fozzy ahead of him, plus Buchanan coming into the first team picture, I think he himself will want first team football Jozefzoon - Really not worked out after 1 decent season with Brentford, just doesn't show the quality or consistency he supposing has Evans - Similar to Huddlestone, we have a lot of options here. I actually thought he was one of the best performers at the start of the season, but with Rooney and Bird playing in his position since then, I cant see him getting many minutes Marriott - I know a lot of people like him, but considering the hype he gets, it has to mean something if our last 2 managers haven't made him our first choice striker. I also think out of the 3 strikers we have he has the biggest sell on value which will be much needed Roos - at 27, I don't think you're gonna get much improvement from him. As a backup keeper, surely Ravas, Barnes or Foster will be good enough? This would leave us with the below. Assuming a target of 2 first team players per position in a 4231 plus some of the academy breaking through we would have a well balanced squad
    GK - New, Ravas
    RB - Bogle, Wisdom, Ebosele
    LB - Lowe, Forsyth, Buchanan
    CB - Te Weirik, New, Davies, Wisdom/Forsyth
    CDM - Rooney, Bird, Bielik, Shinnie, J Brown, Dixon
    AM - New, Lawrence, Holmes, Knight, Sibley, Mitchell-Lawson, A Brown
    ST - Waghorn, Martin, Whittaker, Hector-Ingram, Hepburn-Murphy
    20 first team players plus support from the academy is a lot more sustainable than what we currently have. I have obviously been really optimistic about us not loosing any of our main players or youngsters such as Bogle, Knight, Bird etc but would love to hear your thoughts

    sage got a reaction from Steve How Hard? in v Bristol City (A) - Matchday Thread   
    We conceded the 2nd and 3rd goals because we are a CB short. Davies is slow and can't pass. Wisdom struggles in the air, Lowe and Bogle are attacking full backs almost wing backs. Forsyth can't play Saturday Wednesday Saturday. We had to try and get a CB in on the cheap. The EFL charge fooked up the investment. Keogh didn't put a seat belt on.   
    None of this is Cocu's fault. 
    Rooney has transformed us from a lower table team to a upper-mid table team but you can't expect top 6 with one fully working CB. Enjoy the better football and some victories but it is what it is. We will finish 9th to 12th with the basis of a good and partly youthful team with a chance of play offs next year if some physicality is added.

    I disagree that our football was too pretty or that we weren't potent enough up front.
    We were just out muscled at corners. There are some other improvements needed.
    Lowe needs to get closer to the crosser. Holmes didn't affect the game till after their 3rd goal and lawrence regressed back to losing the ball and poor decision making.
    However most of the reasons we lost that game cant be solved until the summer.
    We need a CB in the summer and dominant GK and a winger/wide forward (or two).
    Get that recruitment right and we will be top 6 next year.
