  • Speaks volumes about Ashley's Toon. Worth a punt for the bottom three?
  • As somebody who was present on Saturday I took the following:-1. For the first half when we played something like a recognisable first team we were well on top. Whether this was because the Creepies were poor or we were good is debateable, but one s…
  • Sheffield Utd are also supposed to be after Maupay of Brentford. I suspect that if they signed one they would not pursue the other.
  • The 50 year celebration angle is a tad underwhelming - I though they might have recreated the 1969-70 shirt which I recall was a fantastic exercise in minimalism- plain white with no badge, sponsors logo or other clutter! Less is more!

  • The fact that Bidwell did well at Brentford is encouraging as they have been one of the better footballing sides in the EFL in recent years.As to Rangel and his behaviour before the QPR game, what were some people expecting? A hat-trick of own goals…

  • We'll never really know, but the final couple of Months of Laudrup did see some very mundane performances where the ball was being passed around to no great effect. Perhaps if he'd been more motivated the tactics would have been tweaked and we'd hav…

  • Be interesting to see whether those predictions remain the same on the eve of the first game when we'll have a better idea of how squads are going to pan out. 
  • Birmingham appear to have been here before. A couple of seasons back they sacked Gary Rowett when they were usefully placed in upper mid table following a decent start to the season. Apparently their owners wanted a style of football that was better…
    in Monk sacked Comment by Garbo June 21
  • Worth remembering that in our promotion season we regularly featured a  central midfield of Leon and Joe, neither of whom could be described as physically imposing although both were quick on their feet and not averse to a decent tackle. We also had…
  • If Louis Van Gaal is to be believed then the cupboard is fairly bare in terms of top class talent coming through United's youth development. He may be setting the bar high bearing in mind the production line of talent that he worked with at Ajax, bu…

  • At best it would be a sideways move for Bowyer - from one Championship club with non-investing owners to another. Bearing in mind that he also has a big connection with CAFC as a player it seems doubtful that he would really be a contender.

  • The analysis may also be a little unfair on Poyet in terms of style. I saw his Brighton team on a number of occasions and they actually played a very European style possession game - their promotion winning side from League One was in many ways remi…
  • I rather doubt that we would pay compensation for a manager already in a job.

  • Yep, both HSV and VfB seem to have bad cases of "Toonitis" in that they are traditional powers in the Bundesliga with huge crowds but appear to be wholly unable to get their act together.
  • Wolff is very much of the new young German coach model. His Stuttgart team were very attack minded and operated with a high press. He seemed to get found out the following season when they struggled in the Bundesliga, although a cynic would say that…
  • How about Hannes Wolff who has recently been sacked by SV Hamburg, having finished 4th in Bundesliga 2?As with David Wagner and Daniel Farke, Wolff has a background of managing Borussia Dortmund Seconds and youth teams. He guided VfB Stuttgart to pr…
  • Its true that McKay has been inconsistent. To me his body language is of a player who sorely lacks confidence rather than any particular lack of effort. He will need to step up next season but his assist record is actually pretty good for a player w…
  • Aside from the obvious weakness at set pieces I think we also have a problem with ball-watching defenders and an ineffective version of an off-side trap. Watching the goals from the Rotherham and Hull games suggests a recurring problem of players ma…
  • Aribo's not a bad call although he can be inconsistent and I don't see him as a like for like with Fer. Bielik has made 30 appearances for Charlton this season, although its true that the last time I saw him he limped off.
  • A player who could fit the bill is Kristian Bielek who is currently on loan from Arsenal at Charlton. I've seen him a number of times this season and have been impressed with his passing and distribution. He also is quite physically imposing which i…
  • Perhaps its just a perception but my view is that Nordfeldt's line keeping has deteriorated. He has always looked dodgy under crosses but had previously been capable of decent saves such as at Wolves in the FA Cup last year. He pulled off some good …
  • I think some of our younger players got a reality check on Saturday. After ten days of being the new Barca/Ajax some may have been believing their own hype. I also think that deep down the fact that we were mathematically safe from relegation may ha…
  • I can only think that the panel was only looking at the incident is isolation. Anybody who knew the context of the game could see that Dan was away and none of the other defenders in the vicinity would have caught him.
  • I saw all of those home games. I seem to remember the Reading and Bournemouth games were on Good Friday and Easter Saturday. It was not unusual in those days for there to be three games over Easter.
  • Did anybody catch the Ajax v Juventus CL game last night. The way that Ajax played was incredibly reminiscent of the way we approached the last three games with a high press and winning the ball back up the pitch. (There was also the slight frustrat…

  • Worth remembering that they lost Maddison and Murphy in the summer - both highly rated youngsters. The key thing though is that it seems much of the £30m raised was reinvested wisely.
  • There's no doubt that Daniel Farke has done superbly on a limited budget. However, worth remembering that he was not top of everyone's Christmas card list at Norwich twelve months ago.Also worth remembering that both Stoke and WBA have both retained…
  • Its always a bit difficult to know what to make of a situation from a legal point of view from press reports as they are often colloquial and don't set out the (boring) minutiae of the contractual position.However, from the reports I have read it se…
  • To make matters even more confusing, Russia itself straddles two continents. Teams from the Russian far east such as Zenit Irkutsk play in the Russian Professional League and could theoretically one day qualify for European club competitions but geo…

  • Birch was Morgan's guest at the London premiere of the film. Bearing in mind the sales pitch nature of JTAK then we did speculate whether he was being briefed to find investors at that stage which seems entirely plausible given the way things panned…
