Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

It's an amazingly double-edged sword though isn't it?

LoG came in, wiped out some of the debt, got us promoted, wiped out even more of the debt, then a farcical league campaign in the PL, a change of ownership, a change of manager, mediocre players signed long-term on extortionate wages, and then relegation.

Great to have the massive debt reduction and a Wembley win - not so great to get 11 points, and a $h1t squad of players!

I genuinely think that we're still feeling the effects of the disastrous PL campaign. I think any and all remnants of that era need removing from the squad, and then perhaps we can all finally move on.

Well I think Bywater and Leacock will be gone as soon as anyone is daft enough to take them (which is a trifle unfair on Leacock) and maybe Pearson too. Is there anyone else left?

Varney - get rid.

£12k per week and we'll never play him again.

Oh yeah, forgot about him!! Yeah, hopefully someone will take him off our hands--guess we could do with offloading Croft as well (though he is most assuredly a Cloughie failure!)

Croft and Dave Martin, if we're still intent on NOT playing with wingers.

Croft did alright in the reserves after he'd come back from loan. Lost a bit of weight and got his confidence back.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Always worrying when you send a player on loan to the division below and even they don't play him though! Shame was when we signed him it seemed a really good deal!

It'd be nice to have the option of a winger on the bench if plan a isn't working!

^^ See that Liam Dickinson's been released by Barnsley - fooking waste of £1m!

One of many pointless signings around that time.

So, Shearer possibly the new Cardiff manager? Wonder what HappyDayRiot makes of that!

Yeah so I see, weird cos I didn't think he had that much interesting in managing after the whole Newcastle thang. Cardiff would be better off with Hughton, in fact everyone on their hit list would be a good choice.

Bullet dodged and no mistake. I would probably have gone straight down the ticket office and cancelled my ST for next season if he'd been allowed in. I mean, Shearer!?

Yeah, I mean he's showed almost zero interest in management before now aside from the Newcastle debacle! If he was that interested he should have been off getting coaching badges etc at least. Narrow escape, whoever you end up with (hopefully not Billy!)

Apparently Cardiff have approached Watford for permission to speak to Malky.
