UG what a fantastic photo os Scotty and Greeno. It was a long drive home this evening along a very windy M11, but today our fans did us so proud. Good on you all. I sit in the East Stand at that conga was the business!
I really hope not! He is without a doubt our most promising DF on the books, and already has had a few months experience in the Championship with Bristol City, and looked solid enough...
I wasn't at the game today, but I really hope it wasn't his last
Think it said 32 odd K.....
Wigan can get barely 2/3rds of that........
Stoke today: 27+ K
Wolves 29+ K
Bolton 26 K
Fulham 25+ K
Villa almost 43 K
Everton 38+ K
Barcodes 51+ K
West Ham 32, 7+ K
Don't deserve fans like ours......
So Keen thougt our players put a lot of effort in? He thougt Piqionne played well?
Jesus! I don't expect him to say X player was **** or whatever, but for christ's sake don't insult us after that dross!! At least admit that we played poorly and the effort just wasn't there. Until we address the problems we will never find the solutions. It just reads like the same old crap we got from Grant mixed with Zola's/Ducker's bull**** project (obviously I realise Gollivan will hope to save money by playing as many youngsters as possible). We need somebody new who is willing to kick arse and inspire people, not that old b*llocks.
Well, before the game I hoped we'd hold on to Hitzelsperger and I hoped we'd renew Hines' contract. After today I've gotta say I'm struggling to care all that much about either of them.
It pains me to think Wigan, QPR, Wolves, Blackburn and one of Swansea or Reading will be a division above us next season. But we've been here before but hopefully for not as long. The loss in the playoff final hurt me more than the relegation the year before. But I think today shows how much strengthening we need in the Summer. We'll finish about 5th bottom in the Championship with that team. The lack of strength, any real energy and any real end product worried the **** out of me.
you can add stoke to that list
Strengthening??? After the show today we need practically a whole new squad imo. If they couldn't put up a fight today than they're going to be in for a rude awakening in the Championship. I don't hold out much hope of us getting back up next season to be honest. Maybe if we needed to get a few in in key positions I'd say we would be in with a shout but to build a whole squad, sort out your first eleven and getting them to play how you want is a going to be a tough tough job.
That's what I meant NP...strengthening to the max. I think some of us thought that keep a couple of players mixed with some kids and some loans would do us...but clearly not. I can't imagine that shocker today beating Doncaster on a cold away trip. It'd be about 3-0 and all from headers. Our defence is woeful and what worries me is we are going to be left with 3/4 22 year olds. We need about 17/18 players...as I can only see about 8 of these staying or even worth keeping.
I know some people don't like Curbishley and I know his business in the transfer market wasn't great, though more 50-50 IMO, but I think we need someone with that experience to make our promotion bid a success...otherwise we are in serious danger of falling through another trap door...and I ain't joking...
It should have been obvious to everyone before todays game that we will need a left back, at least one CB, a left mid a right mid, some back up mids and possibly 3 or 4 strikers.
Too early for panic stations now...
