Re: Grabbing life by the bullocks. Oxford (H) 17.9.19 KO 8pm

It's doing my head in that Hill hasn't said anything about Daryl Murphy or O'Grady. Iles says he popped the question but got nothing back. I'd love to have an idea of when they'll be fit!

Have we signed two crocks?

Re: Will Hill thrill us at the Millers? Rotherham (A) Sat 14 Sep, 3pm

Also, I’m absolutely giving Hill 18 months regardless but his post match comments have somewhat scared me. He’s talking a bit like Coyle did. What we don’t need now is a project. Or a philosophy. What we need is to find a way to be competitive in games ASAP. Restore some pride. Get us looking forwa...

Re: Will Hill thrill us at the Millers? Rotherham (A) Sat 14 Sep, 3pm

Yeah, but as I said, Hill will see what you and I have seen and I'm sure he'll work with Verlinden in the week to get him to defend better. Hill wasn't my choice but he's got enough experience to spot the failings and perhaps realise his approach was too naive from the start yesterday. Let's see and...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

Chicksen was very poor and I've read that Bradford fans couldn't wait to get rid of him. Does make me wonder if we'd have been better just going with youth at LB rather than signing him? And then filling one or two other positions instead.

Hopefully we'll hear from Hill about Murphy and O Grady in terms of when they'll be playing.

Re: What is our best starting eleven?

^^ I read that Rochdale had a 16 year old at full-back for their recent game v Sunderland, and that he played a blinder against McGeady. There's a lot to be said for playing one or two youngsters, and I wouldn't be surprised to see one or two start against Rotherham, whether circumstances call for i...

Re: What is our best starting eleven?

Probably agree with most others so far, give or take a few players. I'd take out Luke Murphy and I'd have Buckely in as a definite starter. I kinda concur with Bruce that - since most of us have never heard of some of these lads - it's hard to pick an XI. But at the same time, it probably largely pi...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

Look, I get what folk are saying, and I get that it's early doors. But if you listen to fan complaints from the last few years, a prime one has been a lack of creativity on the pitch, a lack of chances created et cetera. And, for me, and Bertie as well, we need someone in the middle of the park who'...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

I think if we don't get a CAM in there pronto, we'll fall back on the same complaints us fans have had while Parky was here (and especially last season) - dour football, no creative spark, few chances created et cetera. It's okay having the runners but we've been there, done that and were bored to ...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

Great post on Crawford, DSB, cheers.

I'm personally thinking we still need a CAM - a playmaker. Iles created his teamsheet today and stuck Weir in that position. Is he the best we can do, or is there anyone else available?

Ben Pringle signed for Gillingham, a lad who trained with us this summer. I wouldn't have minded having him here but perhaps we're covered for wingers now

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

If we've got any designs on staying up, Rotherham is pretty much must-win

I'd be happy to still be in the mix come January. If we're doomed by then, it just makes it a drag of a season
