    My dad…

    My dad went to the big stadium in the sky tonight, fittingly just as Solanke scored to put us 2-0 up. I’d been with him all day in end of life care but handed over to my sister so we could attend the match in his honour. We got the dreaded text on the half hour mark. To anyone wondering why...

    Jordan Zemura

    A joy to watch, such a natural talent for a full back. I also wonder if he could be a winger but play like that and you might as well have him and a winger! What I really love though is the fact he was released twice. And he didn’t give up. Great for what his resilience is like and a great...

    Jordan Zemura

    If that’s your definition of torture you never saw Karl Broadhurst play right back.

    Joshua King

    It’s a valid argument but depends on your definition of potential and talent I guess. His best spell for us was when Callum was injured and he was the main striker. He struggled in a deeper or wider role and was always second fiddle to Wilson. He chose us because he was fed up playing in a wide...

    Jordan Zemura

    He has been outstanding. Best instant youth entry into a team since our Eddie.

    Joshua King

    If his head was in the right place he would have torn the championship to shreds. Just as he has tore the Pl apart, he’s not 36. The fact of the matter is his head hasn’t been in the right place for ages, nor was it before we had him for large periods. He will be one of those talents that...

    Our strongest 11…

    None of us have seen Cahill play… he is very quick across the ground. Can’t remember Cook being slow and caught behind I do remember seeing him get back and make many last ditch challenges. I don’t think either of them are slower than Mepham.or Ibsen Rossi. they might be slower than Kelly. We...

    Our strongest 11…

    I do believe Parker might put a fit Smith in at left back. He persuaded him to stay at the club at great length but think he will play Stacey at right back. He brings a depth of knowledge and energy. I wouldn’t play him but think Scott will. Time will tell. Of the young players, they’ve done...

    Our strongest 11…

    Tough one… mine would be… Stacey Cahill Cook Kelly Pearson Lerma Billing Brooks Solanke Lowe But hard without seeing Christie or Rogers properly. Also very hard on Kilkenny and Zemura so a bit of agonising there and happy for them to replace Lerma and Kelly respectively. I also think with...

    48 hours that will determine our season

    It’s an age thing! But I’m with you. I always remember arguing with my dad that a 4 was a defensive midfielder but to him it was the centre half with a left and right half either side and of course the two full backs being called that because they were the two hard men furthest back! Not the...

    Players To Come In For Next Season?

    No need for a defender. Cahill will be just the Roquefort the back line we need.

    Scott Parker

    If that’s the case they are not showing it in the transfer market when you look at net outgoings and incomings over last year.

    Arnaut Danjuma

    Just scored a good goal to put Villarreal 2-1 up at Athletico (DJ soz…. Couldn’t find the right thread to merge!)

    Tindall/Parker Dejavu

    Is he under pressure though? I don’t read it as that. No thread calling for his dismissal. Just lots of people saying they are pleased we are unbeaten but not feeling very entertained..

    Tindall/Parker Dejavu

    I think all we want is a team that rolls it’s sleeves up and has a good go, trying to entertain in the process. My slight concern is that we have done less of that in the last three games than the first three. And yesterday we only had two ‘kids’ playing and one of those many people thought was...
