  1. I missed the last 5 minutes of normal time for both the FC Copenhagen and Sevilla home games as I had to get the last train back to London for work the next day. Stupid decision in retrospect - luckily I didn’t miss any key goals.
  2. Pretty sure we get one of these threads every year!
  3. How about Watford giving up at 3-0. Look at the lack of pressure on the ball for goals 4,5 and 6 - it’s farcical. Most teams would have put a few past Watford the way they played from 60mins onwards.
  4. Do recall singing “Jack Hobbs - Eats Cheese and Onion Cobs” back in the day
  5. His first goal Sunderland away in the title winning season, and the West Brom away goal in the great escape. Closely followed by the breakaway goal vs Man Utd in that 5-3 game.
  6. No Ian Dowie on the list this time?
  7. Wow we’ve never had a thread like this before.
  8. Hope Rudkin’s fax machine is working today! No 14 second delay please.
  9. Will the new training ground have a faster fax machine?
  10. Not only that but presumably his estate isn’t something that will be tied up overnight. Said it in another thread but got laughed at - Puel is going nowhere. Most fans wanting him out are oblivious to the current circumstances at the club.
  11. He won’t be sacked with the current environment of financial uncertainty for the club. People should just wake up and realise it’s not happening.
  12. I think he’s bang on to say these things. Fans have forgotten so quickly what the club and players are still going through. It’s not something they can move on from overnight. That said, it’s questionable how much that has impacted our performances. I guess we will never know. Theres loads of other things we dont know too, in particular what happens to Vichais estate, how that affects the clubs finances, tops finances and the long term outlook. For that reason I don’t see us spending in jan, I don’t see us sacking Puel, i don’t really even see us spending much over this coming summer. This may take well over a year to work itself through and the outcomes may not be pretty.
  13. I recall sitting watching us lose at home to Colchester in our championship relegation season. It wasn’t just losing football - it was hopeless, insipid, disorganised and just awful to watch, boos through the game boos at the end. An incapable squad and incapable manager. Maybe these things are easily forgotten - but a bad game against Southampton where we have periods of the game where we might have got a draw or more, we have an exciting squad and are playing for 7/8 position in the premier league. Its not not even a comparison to make - yes neither are much fun on the day but be grateful for what we have. This era of the club won’t last forever.
  14. Macquarie are a major international commercial and investment bank.
