Re: League Cup Draw Oxford at the Boleyn ground

Unless we have a good start to the season, which'll be tricky with our fixtures, this game could well suffer from a record low gate at our gaff for many a year. Especially if it's on the tellybox.

Re: League Cup Draw

What's this seeding lark all about?

Are we limited to who we could meet? :?

Re: Summer 2010 Transfer Talk/Rumours

If he goes, maybe we could get Mullins back strictly as an emergency back up? Surely Pompey would let him go free or for very little given their circumstances?

It's obvious that Kovac is wanted, and that Noble isn't. But apparently they tried to sign Noble first... :lol: I'm pretty sure you realise I was mucking about :thup: In all seriousness, though, I really do hope for a lot more from Noble this season. He just seemed to lose about 70% from his game w...

Righty ho.

Kovac put in twice the effort that Diremanti did last season.

Re: Summer 2010 Transfer Talk/Rumours

So why is he a wrongly accused hardman then? Does he not throw himself into tackles like he is supposed to as a defensive midfielder? A lot of holding midfielders can't pass for sh*t...some can. He's there to break up play with tackles...he does that. All I see on here is "Kovac can't pass, Kovac c...

Re: Summer 2010 Transfer Talk/Rumours

Many people claim Makelele was a sh i t passer as well, don't they? Of course Kovac's distribution was poor last season, but he added quite a bit in terms of defensive work and passion. He worked a lot harder and seemed more passionate than the likes of the beloved Diamanti, Noble, etc. I understand...

Re: Summer 2010 Transfer Talk/Rumours

He may well of been better than Noble last season, but I think we all agree Noble is the better player. Especially when it comes down to passing, shooting and tackling. Didn't Kovac score more goals than Noble from open play last season? Just shows how bad some of our players performed across the p...

Re: Summer 2010 Transfer Talk/Rumours

Kovac was better than quite a few of our other players last season. He was certainly better than Noble, Behrami, Diamanti, etc last season, yet Noble & co are lauded by most on here as key players for the season ahead. I can understand letting Kovac go, especially with now having Hitz on board. But,...

Re: Summer 2010 Transfer Talk/Rumours

Kovac would be a good signing for Stoke.

He'll really toughen up their midfield.

Re: Summer 2010 Transfer Talk/Rumours

Unless Cole went to Citeh, we'd only get about £4-5m as an up front payment for him from any other club.

With that in mind, it's worth taking the risk of keeping him. Dodgy knees or not.
