  1. Fulham: In a nutshell

    I cry.
  2. Is the squad better and stronger under Rowett.

    As of the summer (if you include Ledley) it was stronger based on Gary's needs. It has been weakened as of January. Jerome suits his needs, Donaldson MK2. Martin never suited his direct style, sames as Hughes and a few others. We were already in need of a winger, lost Russell and replaced him with a player he didn't deem fit to make the starting 18. We now have no striking backups, a weaker wing force. Thorne returning hasn't quite given us the required boost but he needs a full pre-season to get going again after so long out. Defence is still the strongest we've had in a while and that's with a Forsyth who still doesn't look his former self to me yet. Overall, weaker as of January but as of the summer better suited to Gary's style of play.
  3. Bad photos of Derby players when they were younger

    A young Mel in happier times.
  4. I watch snippets for comedy, I have a rewind people I watch for that reason, sometimes instruction. I rarely watch it now outside of with a quick meal or when youtubing on my phone in the am.
  5. FIFA 18

    Because the demo doesn't give me an insight into ultimate team which is the only thing I play, any changes there. Ten hours of the actual game for four quid (as well as all the other benefits of ea access for a bit) was well worth paying.
  6. Time to go !

    Because the fans have turned in every manager we've had when performances have dropped for a long time now. A large proportion are expecting promotion. Fan reaction can't elicit another sacking. This football can't be the final intention from Rowett. Mel must have known the football that he had played previously when he hired him. I can't imagine he'd make the same mistake as he did with Pearson, who signed up to a brand of football that he was never going to implement. This cannot be Rowetts final design or anywhere close. You can clearly still see square pegs in round holes across the side, due in most part to the squad issues (and some failed recruitment) I don't care what he does this year. Shy of relegation he gets a free pass. Next year he is judged. We simply cannot afford to sack another manager before the season is out.
  7. Time to go !

    I don't give a damn this season, there's nothing in it for us, we should be aware of that. We've chosen a percentage manager so it's not going to be pretty. When he has a squad capable of achieving his intention then I'll judge him. It's half built atm. Write this season off as one we need to undergo to stabilise the club after the manager turnover policy we've had and the recruitment knock ons since that left the squad looking as it did this summer. McCLaren shouldn't have been sacked but we are past that now. Percentage manager on a half built squad. It is what it is.
  8. FIFA 18

    I've been fairly excited for each FIFA the last few years, I paid for a month of EA access to try ten hours of gameplay a week early and thank God I did. It's garbage. Last year and 2016 were far more defensive and tactically minded than the game used to be; this year it has returned to the arcade. Pace feels so much more powerful than before, the defenders are all in possession of the turning circles of injured Darren Moore's, the ease in which you can simply pass forward and it always gets there is ridiculous and the goalkeepers are either stand in amateurs or Neuer himself. I've been positive on where the game has been attempting to go, away from the FIFA 15 'pace wins matches' philosophy but there's no way of doing that this year. I usually get to the top division with a league like Turkey or Portugal and try to win the title then retire. I haven't got a prayer of that with how bad these 'top' defenders are. For anyone also pre-ordering or ready to purchase on Friday, pay 3.99 for Ea access and try it before you do. I'm really disappointed in it. If they patch the game to hell it may be good by Christmas, I'll revisit it then.
