    Yeah I think there might be something in the rumour :joy: announcing his own signing on instagram when he’s not even in England :lol:

    Bit of Alan Partridge at the end as well

    @TheonlywayisS6 Were his team talks this bad when he was with you?

    Yes! Usually after a win, to try and make people think he's an eccentric genius. tbh there's only so long that you can listen to him ramble about potatoes and fish before it wears a bit thin, and he loses the plot completely eventually. Simple questions like "why have we only had 5 shots on target in the last month?" or "why do you constantly play 442 when it clearly doesn't suit our players?" got long rambling replies that didn't actually answer anything. Towards the end of his time with us every press conference was pretty much the same, blaming everything on injuries, refereeing decisions, basically everybody but himself, yet oddly insisting that we'd still get promoted this year and making mysterious comments to questions about why he always sets up so defensively ("I'll tell you at the end of the season" he said).

    It's funny that some people on our forums are now making him out to be a tactical genius who we should never have let go for getting a somewhat fortuitous win against Liverpool, but forget that he's failed to beat the entire bottom 7 of the Championship this season!

    Daily Mail and the Sun reporting Frank Lampard in talks to become new boss, not sure how I’d feel about that

    Appleton, Lennon, Lampard and Grayson favs atm, would love MApp back but don’t think it’s realistic

    Rumours of a takeover considering the chairman isn’t wealthy and we’ve just spent a fee on 2 players and paid off Pep’s contract, **** knows really but if so they’ll probably bring someone with them

    It amazes me the best manager in the world hasn’t got a job yet, I thought Appleton was amazing.

    Allegedly signing Lois Diony from St. Etienne. Don’t know much about him but he’s got a gold card so that’ll do me.

    He got a TOTS last year as well. Only reason I remember it is because I packed him about 12 times.

    I noticed he got two IFs and a TOTS in a bad side so seems to have something about him. One of the French journos saying we’ve bagged a very very good player and he rates him higher than Kodjia and Diedhiou.

    Seems to be a real work horse / 110% type which is clearly the sort of player we target now.

    Weird thing is it’s apprently a loan with a permanent option if we go up.

    I still can’t quite get my head around the enormity of tonight’s fixture.

    I mean Chelsea Academy vs Oxford. It truly is the stuff dreams are made of.

    It is a huge fixture, we lost to their academy side in the group stages last season on penalties meaning we still got a point but they did get that extra point over us

    Funnily enough I was looking through the rest of our fixtures for the season and our game against you was 1 of 3 that I thought could end up on TV between now and the end of the season. Mainly because of how mental the reverse fixture was (Other two were Brentford and QPR at home).

    I noticed our game against Millwall is on sky, there should be great entertainment in a fixture that's produced 4 goals in the last 7 matches

    Should be a decent bit of fighting though so every cloud and all that.

    Is there some unwritten rule that you have to be a cockney gypo to sell half and half scarves? Are they all one big family?

    I would claim racism, but it's true.

    That is shocking from Magnusson. What on Earth is he doing trying to take it back inside him once he’s won the ball?!

    Tie over.
