  1. Just saw this on sky sports news. Signed new contract until summer 2022. Good news!
  2. I remember a few dustbins flying around the car park too. Can't remember too much about the game fortunately.
  3. We have had loads of crap results in the FA Cup over the years - as have most teams. I was at the infamous Harlow defeat and I'm still mentally scarred!
  4. At the moment I just can't work out what kind of striker he's supposed to be. He's not showing enough pace to play off the shoulder of the last man, he rarely gets a shot away when he has a chance to, he's not strong in the air and his decision making is really poor. His first touch is awful too currently and he doesn't seem to attack the ball at crosses. He may just be devoid of confidence and he's still young but he's just not contributing enough for me.
  5. I'm not saying they were right nor that it was everyone. But there were definitely those chants. I loved the Bloomfield era. For me this is one of the reasons that I'm willing to give Puel time. I can remember my dear old dad saying to me at the time "people should be careful what they wish for" and sure enough we ended up with Frank Mclintock, the sale of Frankie Wortho and a freefall to relegation. I'm in no way comparing Puel to Bloomfield but I can see what he's trying to build and we are comfortably mid-table unless that changes and unless there is a better option I don't share the view that ANY option is better. Ps for anyone of a similar era "Weller walks on water"
  6. I'm afraid there were plenty of "Bloomfield out" chants towards the end of his last season. From what I can remember some supporters were frustrated that we never quite got into the European places despite the fact that this was a wonderfully talented and entertain team (albeit prone to the odd 5-0 thumping).
  7. For me he has always looked incredibly lightweight and off the pace. I've also never seen any particular creativity to his play.
  8. I agree. We also looked really good at times against Manchester Utd and Arsenal(first half) earlier this season. I'm not sure if it's just down to Maguire being much more attack minded in terms of both bringing the ball out of defence and attacking the ball from corners but he is a big miss in that respect.
  9. Was standing near the halfway line and got hit by a shot from iheAnacho?

    To be fair... My paperboy pays more tax than amazon.
  11. Me too! We had club record signing Roger Davies as top scorer with 4 goals for the season. Maybe we should set up a virtual reality suite at the KP and make everybody relive that nightmare of a season so there's a bit more perspective about our current position?
  12. Add Mclintock, Pleat, Hamilton, Lee, Mcghee, Taylor, Worthington, Allen to that list just as a few more!
