    Grayson has probably committed career suicide with that move, and I do feel for him. They are in an awful mess and makes me appreciate that we appear to be on the way back up. But he was mad to take it, he had a positive thing going at PNE and the signings he made there before he left are doing really well at the moment. I don't think we ever hit that low a level (thankfully!) but they are in serious trouble on and off the pitch.

    The next 2 games against Burton (A) & Bolton (H) I think will tell us where we are. Win both those comfortably and we will be back in the mix. They are games that we would have struggled & drawn last year so hoping to see a marked improvement & continue our good run of form.

    Good, I'm glad to hear someone fears us at least a little
  4. Pre-match thread

    This is exactly where my head is at. This is a game where we should control it from the start and win comfortably 2 or 3 nil.. if we have in fact turned a corner. A win would do our confidence some good before we head to Cardiff & Reading. -------------------- Johnstone ---------------- Hutton --- Chester --- De Laet--- Amavi Elmo---Onomah---Hourihane---Green ------------- Hogan ---------- Gabby---------- Empty the subs bench then as needs be

    Would be surprised to see him start tomorrow, needs a chance to train with the squad. Could get a start against Colchester on Weds alright though.
  6. Josh Onomah

    Yea agreed, Ah right, very happy with this anyways. He should be really eager and that positivity will definitely help us get off on the right foot. Honestly, you'd never know with Spurs, they could sign a few midfield players in the next month and if they qualify for the champs league again next year, he could well find himself heading back to a club where he might not be guaranteed much game time. If he does well with us and enjoys his football, he might want to come back or stay (and play regularly in the PL when we get promoted )

    Great addition! Glad he is here for the whole season, it should give him a real chance to make an impact. Hopefully some clause inserted so if he does well we can get him back, either permanently or on loan again. Did he sign a new contract with Spurs before he joined us?
  8. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    threw a 10er on us at 13/2 last week. Last season, when you looked at Newcastle they clearly stood out above the rest with a great squad and experienced manager. Perhaps we are not quite in the same mold but when I look at us now I do think we have lots of the qualities they had and I can't see anyone else that comes too close, besides Boro. A good start would do our confidence the world of good
  9. Your starting XI - August 5th

    I reckon it will be something like this. Maybe swop out Gabby for Hourihane and put 5 in midfield. I think we will give Hull a good game. They have too many new signings & a manager so I just can't see them as settled as we are.
  10. Your starting XI - August 5th

    Assuming Kodjia is not fit to start... -------------Hogan-----------McCormack----------- Grealish-----Hourihane-----Lansbury-----Adomah Taylor--------Chester--------Terry---------Hutton ------------------------Johnstone-----------------------

    'Arry was linked with a move to bring him across the city. No issues with him leaving, turned out to be quite disappointing.
  12. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    So has there been any other concrete links (in or out) or insight into where SB actually wants to strengthen? Considering the Hull game is about 3.5 weeks away and pre-season has started, I'm sure he would want to give the squad some time to gel and form some sort of understanding on a football pitch. Its so crucial that we get off to a good start this season.
  13. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    He's hardly still here is he?! please no.
  14. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    I hope he's not going to be out of his depth..
  15. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    Interesting if true, but these things can be overcome. Remember something a few years back about us signing Victor Wanyama only he failed the medical and had "the knees of a 90 year old" then ended up at celtic a few days later and, well, you know the rest. I still think there is a serious player in Amavi, but it just hasn't worked out. I still think we should recoup the 9m we paid for him at least, but prob wishful thinking.
