Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Too much baggage for Newcastle, obviously.

Derby will finish mid-table, there's no way that we'll be able to compete with the likes of West Ham, Leicester, Cardiff etc over the course of a full season.

I'm just glad that we're so much better of than this time last season. Took us until October to get 12 points and 4 wins last year.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I don't know, call me hopeflessly naive, but momentum is a funny thing. I'm not saying we're gonna win the league, but assuming we're lucky with injuries I can see us hovering around the outer edges of the playoffs. Heck we're Derby fans, we know better than most that it's perfectly possible to be promoted by having a hardworking hard to beat team (Billy D) perfectly possible to get to the playoffs on a shoestring (Burley) and that splashing the cash doesn't equate to promotion (Arthur Cox)



That said I think anything 10th and above and I'll be happy.

Are you kidding? We only have about 17 players - without some loan signings, we're going nowhere!

Cardiff 2011-2012 Squad

Even taking the graduating youngsters out of that you're left with a very solid-looking squad of 22. There are a good number of players in there that would walk into most teams in this division.

I'd be very surprised if Cardiff don't make the playoffs.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I'll be surprised if we do make them (and annoyed - please god alive no more play-offs!)

It's not as solid as it looks. 6 youngsters (7 in fact, as our no.52 isn't on that list), Gestede who is playing every week but is looking very raw indeed, Kiss who has yet to play at all, plus the guaranteed comedy misfits who need to be sold to Conference sides - Naylor, Gyepes, Naylor, Parkin, Naylor, Taiwo, Naylor and most of all, Naylor. With Gunnarsson out we already have next to no cover in midfield. Earnshaw and Miller are not a good pairing and cannot keep playing together as they are practically the same player, though Earnshaw is considerably better as he can actually run to the right places and can trap a ball. We have no wing cover for Conway, who has already played every minute of the season. Oh, and we have no pace in central defence, plus Hudson looks to be regressing from his excellent form yesterday when he silenced the naysayers.

We need:
At least one more striker, one is taller than 5'9 and can hold the ball up in particular and link the play... like Jay Bothroyd.
At least one more midfielder, one with experience and good passing ability
Another centre-half

We should be good for these by the end of the transfer window and the loan market.

I stand by my prediction of 9th, but am enjoying the start we're having under the new regime. Especially the Carling Cup thriller the other night!

^You also have a manager who's proven he can work wonders with a threadbare squad!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Guess it kind of sucks to be a Scottish football fan at the moment.......

All out of European competition before the end of August. Even Ireland have managed to get a team into the group stages of the Europa League, congrats to Shamrock Rovers, great win in Belgrade!

The SFA need to undertake a serious review of the state of Scottish football, because at the moment, despite what they might say, it's in a dire state.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Saw the highlights last night, honestly, it could easily have been 18 - Arsenal completely collapsed in the second half. Rooney and Young were absolutely sensational.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I felt genuinely embarrassed for Arsenal watching that game.

Still cheered every goal that involved Young and Rooney though - my fantasy team needed them.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Good week for my team;

Rooney, Aguero, Adam, Hart, Huth, Shawcross all did well for me.

Sadly, Bale spoiled things slightly by being lumbered with a sh1t team!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Amusingly I didn't catch the final results on Sunday, last time I saw it was 5-2 or 6-2 I think, so this thread proved a bit of a shock

Are Arsenal too good to go down?
