  • Jenkins duped?

    He's not the messiah - he is a very naughty boy.. 
    What is sure is that if history was to be written with an end date of the Laudrup era - Huw would be amongst the legends of football. However, there was a watershed moment where hubris vanity and greed started to take over the thinking - and that started on the footballing side with "ripping up" the plan that had got us to where we were and creating the Monk "plan B" which quickly became plan A. Recruitment started to mimick the muddled thinking and down the slippery slope we went.
    At the same time the lure of personal riches meant that his attention was elsewhere and recruitment became random and expensive gambles hoping to hit the jackpot with players who would be transformational - only forgetting that the people who had scouted these type of miracle buys were long gone - either quit or fired.
    With the soul of the club sold for how many pieces of silver you want to quote, the family club is now in turmoil (Trust v buyers/sellers) and the folks who hold the purse strings care nothing for the club and its followers.
    Unfortunately any history lesson must give the full Huw Jenkins story (warts and all).
    We see it time and time again - but no matter how rich you are some people will always want more, and for Huw he traded the extra millions for his position as a Jack legend and hero of the honest working man.
    We are all accountable for our actions - and I hope that Huw (when he files his annual accounts) reflects on the damage he inflicted on one of the great sporting stories and his own legacy, a community that is constantly kicked when it is down, and the many staff turned out onto the street at the club, and other city businesses, whose livelihoods depended on his leadership. 
    Not in the bank balance, of course, but otherwise a real "riches to rags" story of avarice and greed.

    Well I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree and let Mr Potter decide where he plays.

    I just want to congratulate whoever it was on this board who spotted this player and commented how he would be the perfect replacement for Leon
    I think it was after we played Sampdoria in a pre season friendly 
    At the time he would have cost what we paid for Roque Mesa
    Now he's worth £50m it appears!

    @MarkG talk me through Leroy leaping like a salmon with the ball 6 inches above his head and Mulder blocked off??

  • FER & Goals Against Column

    Fer started 6 games and we concede 11 goals
    Remaining 14 games we concede 12 goals

    twice again yesterday he gave the ball away easily and dangerously well inside our own half plus gave a needless free kick on the edge of the box

    It's a team game but its interesting to see him start the last 5 games and we are shipping goals

    same old Fer. it has been a feature in his game since he signed.

    For me, he plays 10 or he doesnt play. Very dangerous letting play as any kind of defensive shield.
