Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I still think mid-table for us come the end of the season.

We haven't really played any teams yet that I consider to be title contenders, or even playoff hopefuls to be fair.

That being said, it's nice to build some momentum for when we do play these teams, and the teams that we're currently beating are the kind of teams that we'd struggle against ordinarily.

I think I was still bemoaning Hendrick's (lack of) composure when he cooly slotted in from 25 yards!

^ Completely agreed.

The introduction of a yellow card for anyone who undergoes a Lazarian healing on the touchline should help!
Signed!

I dunno, I reckon Blackpool will be there or there about...

Besides last year we didn't do too bad against the top teams (we certainly played well against QPR and Swansea)

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

From memory the QPR games were the couple of games where Sav decided to put in MOTM performances!

We've still got Green and Addison to come back in later in the season as well to add further options and cover.

Since Saturday's match, Nigel's spoken of the need for another couple of players to add to the squad - with those, in the right areas, we could be onto something.

Well Bailey's gonna be out for a few months apparently so midfield reinforcements are definitely needed. Hopefully Addison will come back fighting fit (and a lot trimmer) and Greeny will be back too, but in the meantime we need to ship the deadwood out and get someone on loan, even if it is just Oakley.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I think it's the shipping out of dead wood is what's holding everything up.

Ideally we want rid of Leacock, Bywater, Pearson, Martin and probably a few more - but no one's in for them, or was in for them before the transfer window closed.

Although, I see that Crawley Town have signed Clod Davis, so there's always hope!

Really? I thought it's Britain at its purest - a bunch of fat middle aged guys, someone missing half his teeth, a couple guys with turbans, and kids making obscene gestures.

I laughed so much I cried.

The number of pundits rushing to his defence is equally hilarious, just for the number of lame excuses they've scrabbled together for him. Just face it, the guy's lost it and it's also definitely because of playing non-stop for 3 years.

I have no problems with fans laughing their heads off at other players but really do we need the wankers hand gesture signs .

The old fella at the top just left of centre, with the kid next to him. Clearly giving the 'wanker' hand gesture. As are many others in that picture including most of the front row.
