    “what a great result for Leeds, Fulham & Brentford”

    I get we're not scoring for fun like Brentford, got a great squad like Fulham or have the 'big club' status of Leeds but ❤️❤️❤️❤️ me, you'd think we were 15th not 5th.

    And in theory you're the best placed to chase the top two down in the sense that if you win your game in hand you're 3rd.

    He'd get quite abit of game time for us because we're abit light in midfield at the moment.

    Guthrie cant start games because his legs are made out of glass, Sinclsir gets injured and disappears for weeks, Bates and Perry have only just turned 18 and we've turned Rory Holden into a midfielder from a winger :D

    Also, Emmanuel Ledesma got released from FC Cincinnati. Man if he come back here :joy:

    He was decent for us him, had talent

    He's gone downhill very quickly. I remember they were only 3 or 4 points off the Play-Offs when we beat his Cardiff at the back end of our second season down. From memory we scored a last minute winner to basically keep us up and then everyone went on holiday after that game and we lost 5 or 6-0 to Brighton the game after.

    Never thought I’d see the day Billy Sharp would walk out as captain against the current premier league champions.

    Well even if the league season is threatening to be quite underwhelming this season, the cup sub plot is certainly exciting
    League cup got to the 3rd round for a derby
    EFL Trophy in to the semis and the only league one team left
    4th round of the FA Cup and home to Barnsley is hopefully winnable
    Beat Barnsley on Saturday and we are guaranteed to reach 60 competitive fixtures this season with the play offs starting to look likely too :flushed:

    1 goal in 6 and 1 win in 8 in the league, beautiful.The treatment Toney gets from ref's is appalling, constantly fouled but nothing ever given.

    Follow up with a 4-0 win against second. Lovely.

    That was more down to the quality of the squad we had rather than his ability as a football manager though. Don't get me wrong he did a great job off the pitch of stabilising the club after the disaster that was Solskjaer but anyone could have gotten decent results with the team we had at the time.

    Are Wycombe actually any good, or did they "just" have a really good start?

    End of our match today was crazy the ref couldnt have done a better job of completely losing control. Tavernier blatantly tripped no free kick falls into an elbow is flat out on the ground. He then allows play to continue the physios run on as there on the attack seeing he hasnt moved in about 30 seconds they put in the net just as the ref blows his whistle. Glad Tavernier is ok as Lee Camp looked the most concerned for him, he was screaming for play to stop.

    What even is football I hate it.

    Up 1-0 in the final the ref somehow finds 7 mins of added time they score on the 96th and 97th.
    Don't even think I can play FIFA anymore.

    FFS wake up to the news one of the league's millionaires have made a bid for our best player.
    Money's ruining football.

    Can someone tell me more about Jude Bellingham? I know he's a 16 year old midfielder but the transfer fees being tossed around for this kid are insane. Who does he play like? What do you think his ceiling is?

    He had a bit of a scrap with Mitrovic when we played Birmingham away that got Mitrovic his 5th yellow to miss the QPR game, so he's obviously got some confidence.

    Wouldn't surprise me if it was a bit of a "Man Utd tax" if he did end up going for 30m though. If he's going to Burnley or Southampton or whatever it's probably 15-20.

    They do have a good team, but they're manager has got them playing a way that's been difficult to score against. High tempo, and quite a physical team but they can play good football. Most league one defenders can't play against Akinfenwa, play it up to him and he'll either turn or lay off for someone to shoot.

    The ref sounded a complete joke.. typical of this division.

    I’d also suggest Wycombe while having a decent side don’t have the nonsense quality to get them out of jail when they play badly
    Like with us we have someone as good as Pitman as our fourth striker, we only need a couple of chances each game
    And I wouldn’t say we necessarily have the best attack in the league

    Not a City fan but from what I know about him and what my mates know about him it sounds like he should be worth closer to 15M not 7M. Whether that translates into being adapt to the Premier League I don't know. Good player whenever I've seen him though!

    Really good player on his day. Unfortunately, like the rest of our midfielders not named Niclas Eliasson he's fallen off the pace recently. Think all of our fans have said JB would be the next to go and wouldn't look out of place in the Prem.

    Sounds promising and sounds like a Wilder type signing. Let’s hope there’s some truth in the rumour. (There’s probably no truth to all this)

    Can’t work out the formation for today. Could be Cairney on the right, could be a diamond who knows. Was hoping we’d go to a three and start Kongolo straight away to be honest.
