    bastards yeah we had a twitter campaign, an add in the mail and a few protests at the the grounds against mcleish, most of which come about when it was obvious he wasnt up to the job, but 19 matches into the job to vandalise the blokes car, i know it will only be minority of wolves fans but still, no need. edit - txt size changed cus ray charles has better eyesight than avfc1991.
  2. Do we not have a Spurs thread anymore, or was it closed in reaction to they're interest in Benteke?
  3. Depends who the owners are. I get a feeling we're going to see the headline "Leeds Utd in shock Mourinho Approach" before too long. Quickly followed by "Mourinho Snubs Leeds" of course.
  4. Had to check a newcastle forum to check its legit, it appears so according to them, but joe kinnear is to be announced as there director of football

    Looking good in the Charity Shield game. Though, Chelsea dont look quite ready for it at the minute. Can Arsenal win the league this year now they've signed Cech? Not convinced myself, but they are looking good.
  6. So after defeating Chelsea at the weekend our simple neighbours from Smethwick, a local club for local people, are up to 4th place and flying high. I've always found WBA a bit of a funny team and never know what to really make of them to be honest. Steve Clarke has easily and simply taken over the reigns from Woy in what must appear the most seamless managerial change in history. They have a balanced, well-formed squad and play good football, and they haven't spent a huge amount to do so. Are they a force to be reckoned with now, or will the fun end when they get a few injuries and a
  7. This club deserves its own thread, much like the Toon and SHA ones. I find it incredible how many players this club is buying WITHOUT even offering European football, it's simply astounding! These players are moving there to sit on the bench and rake in loads of oil money, lining their pockets to play for such a small club! They've already got loads of strikers! How could any striker want to go there knowing they've got such a fight for their place?! Eto'o to City is just astonishing, I can't believe he might even be considering it, it's madness. Going from a club that just fini

    Agreed. I think Newcastle are pretty much as big a team that did/could go down. I'd say Leeds are bigger than Newcastle.
  9. Seems reasonable to start a thread on this lot. Let's see how Moyes handles the Sideshow Bob-esque shoes he has to fill. Personally I don't think he'll manage and I can't see them winning the league this season. In fact if I had to guess I'd say they'll be 3rd behind Chelsea & Citeh. I also think Moyes' defensive approach to football will not go down well with their fans.

    Looks like the Chelsea players have had enough of AVB...bit of a row the other day after training, apparently. RA got involved in the arguing, too. I'd loved to have witnessed that one RA sacked Ancelotti for AVB, so he's kind of painted himself into a corner. And why did they buy Gary Cahill only to let him rot on the bench? Torres is a has-been, it's all over for him, at least in England. Mata got off to a blazing start, but he's gone awfully quiet since... An aging team going nowhere fast, IMO.... I love it.
  11. Not seen any thread on Brentford in Other Football so thought i'd start one Great read here about their recruitment strategies using analytics:- https://talksport.com/football/fa-cup/659667/brentford-data-revolution-england-smartest-club-championship-leicester-fa-cup/
  12. Deserving of its own thread I think. Disaster waiting to happen or master stroke? They say he has motivation skills, maybe he does on impressionable players but established premier league players? Will they react well to his special brand of management? The circus currently surrounding him could actually deflect a bit of pressure away from his team as well and may help them. I actually hope the appointment backfires spectacularly , not least because it helps us but also because I think he is a totally objectionable character with repugnant views. I also think he deserves payback fo
  13. What do people think of their prospects after Saturday? I think they will lose plenty but also win enough to keep them up. I think Eddie Howe is a very good manager and they will cause a lot of teams problems. Also in Gradel, Wilson and Ritchie they have the weapons to get goals which is the lifeblood of any survival campaign. I thought Matt Ritchie was the best player on the pitch on Saturday, very impressed.
  14. Promoted to the premier league so thought I'd start a thread on them. How do people think they'll do? Last two appearences they've been rock bottom. Will Troy Deeney score goals as regularly as Ings and Austin? I do think they'll be competitive as I know their transfer model isn't to everyone's taste but they've already been signing decent players from Udinese and Granada for the championship so you'd imagine the lure of PL football will get an even better selection. Think I'll get a season ticket down there if Di Natale puts off retirement and pops up there for a season , one o
  15. Looks like some near local derbies next season as they almost back in Premiership, if results go their way possibly even by 5pm Had some good games with them! the 4-4 at Villa Park when we was 4-1 up with 9 minutes left in mid 90's springs to mind! The French scout for them or whoever spotted them has struck gold with Anthony Knockaert (around 1mil) and one very good footballer and Riyad Mahrez (cost £400k in January and been an absolute steal, he is possibly as good or if not better than Knockaert) Those 2 will be their key to survival in premiership..
  16. Crisis Coventry City are in the midst of their bleakest winter, facing the possibility of insolvency, a winding-up order on Boxing Day and playing home matches 45 miles from their current ground. The crisis engulfing the Sky Blues and threatening their very existence has been brewing for some time. It involves the club's hedge fund owners, Sisu, and Arena Coventry Limited, who run the Ricoh Arena. The supporting cast in this sorry saga includes Coventry city council and the Higgs Trust, the joint 50% stakeholders in the stadium that City occupied in 2005 after 106 years at Highfield
  17. How does every one think they will do? They have signed a shed load of players and they have just spent 30m on a player from France. Their owner is really backing then isnt he? Or gambling? If this goes tits up and they go down they will be in the financial trouble.
  18. Looks like there is a possibility that they will face expulsion from the EFL because of a lack of funds by the group that owns them. https://www.standard.co.uk/sport/football/charlton-risk-expulsion-football-league-efl-demand-details-takeover-a4510536.html
  19. Mao we are gracing the Championship with our presence, hopefully just for a season, so about time we had a thread for all things to do with the league and our new company that doesn't fit in threads about individual teams. I don't know about anyone else but I'm not that up on the players in the league so looking forward to changing that.
  20. Solihull Moor's have just signed striker Adam Rooney from Salford for undisclosed Fee and rumoured £4k a week.
  21. Looks like both teams are very close to going out of business. Desperately sad for the fans and the loyal staff who work there as well as the players. Bolton were founder members of the football league. Bury are 134 years old. With so much money in football nowadays at the top, its awful to see teams like this scratch around for money to survive. Goes to show, most clubs are a bad owner away from oblivion - just look at us last summer!
  22. Just watched an outstanding display from them.....showing all the pitch craft I would like to see from my Villa team....a master class of pressing and combative spirit, with a exhibition of composure. This team has been put together with modest funds, mainly free transfers from the German league. I guess Farke is well connected to do as well as he has in the transfer Market.....It fly's in the face of our expensive and cumbersome attempts to get back. If any Villa fan wants to know how to get out of this league....Watch the Leeds v Norwich game , Norwich on that display have the
  23. So it turns out that horrific Huddersfield kit with the sash was fake. It was all part of a campaign to get rid of shirt sponsors once and for all. Here it is, modelled by our good friend Tommy Elphick: Fair play to them. They've pulled a blinder there.
