One of the two footman (or both) in red tunics on the carriages are armed security I'm led to believe
Maybe...but if someone threw a hand granade into the carriage?

Re: O/T Royal Wedding

What I thought of: this would have been THE event for extremists to attack. Imagine the bridal pair being killed by some kind or terrorist attack. My Point being: was anyone there, near the bridal pair in the carrage maybe? Question: how intense were the safety precautions? Every single Person must ...

Re: O/T Royal Wedding

If the Royal Family were to be disbanded forthwith, the poor in our society would probably not benefit by one penny piece because the political mob would take over their assets in ways we can't imagine. Any promises to share their wealth amongst the populace would get broken like they all are, so f...

Lonergren is probably he second worst ever keeper at the club IMO . Worst would be Rachubka ,who was so bad he made even Lonergren look ok ( I'd say no better than ok ).
The present Lonergan is even worse than the other Lonergan we once had some years ago....

Re: Jerry Mbakogu

I just can’t see us pulling off a deal for the Hernandez guy from Hull, he is one hell of a good player and if fit would score us oodles of goals, a deal with Villa broke down last year as he wanted £50-£75k a week depending on which report you believe. Sadly, I think the majority of incomings are ...

Re: Jerry Mbakogu

In regards to Antonsson Blackburn had an option to buy clause, they get promoted yet don’t bother activating the clause, instead they send him back to us, that has to be a concern regarding his ability. For me it was obvious after watching the available Youtube links before he was bought that he wo...

Re: Summer Transfers and Squad Discussion

And he isn't good enough for a team that would like to finish top 6, the only reason fans are raving over him is because of how poor Felix and Lonergan are, BPF might be one for the future. If you want to get excited over some Japanese bloke joining and feel he could be the real deal I'm not going ...

Re: Get Allardyce!!!

What is it, 15 seasons we've been out of the Prem now? A mate said to me, "well it's hard to get out of the Championship". Yes it's hard, but three teams do it every fecking season and we don't even get CLOSE. So in the 15 years we've been out, FORTY FIVE teams have managed it. Some have done it mo...

Re: Get Allardyce!!!

It doesn't take massive money to get out of this league as other teams have proven. I mention Cardiff again. Colin had nothing much to spend. It just takes the right manager to make the right acquisitions and build a team spirit. Why is that such a hard thing to do at our club? How do you make the ...

IMO it would be a good appointment far better than By Heck but will we get him I doubt it. Big Sam I feel wants to be loved by the fans, look what he achieved with Bolton when they loved him and look at some of the ball playing quality players he brought in on the cheap Jay Jay Okocha to name one, ...

Too much experience and too old? He has his ideas and isn`t flexible enough?

Re: Get Allardyce!!!

I think he'd jump at it. Amazing though how many players we've got rid of because they weren't any good and have then gone on to get promoted with other clubs. Two more with Cardiff. Jump at it? Hm...why? Yeah, that seems true in regard to players we released. But hard to say where the problem lies...

So stick with what we've got and wait for the inevitable failure?
Just believe that we need better players foremost. If we can get a forseeable better coach AND better players all the better.
Not sure if Allerdyce is the answer though...and couldn`t see him wanting to come anyway.

Re: Get Allardyce!!!

You are joking Fred :shock: Everton, were 13th in the Premier League when Allardyce arrived, finished the season in eighth position struggling to win matches. Who do the Everton board think they are ? They sell their prolific scorer Lakaku & replacing him with Rooney who is almost past his sell-by-...

Not at that level but good enough to get us up.
Maybe, but only with quality players being added to the squad.
Not sure if his wage demandes are affordable either.

Lewis Cook

Lewis Cook one of five players on standby for the England WC squad.

The guy has made a big step forward in short time. (Concidering he was injured for quite
a long time quite an achievement.)

Re: Summer Transfers and Squad Discussion

The worrying thing for me is, we're here debating the rights and wrongs of individual players who may or may not be worth a crap, but in reality we're back to the manager (or Head Coach). Heck may be an average manager (at best), able to cope with a limited budget and limited players, but he's neve...

Antonnson must go, not good enough. Ekuban isn`t good enough either (yet.) Maybe...
