Seen online comments that we're making panic signings with no plan like headless chickens. I thought all signings and rumoured close signings seemed quite decent, what happened to the 4.4 million we bid for a keeper, was it definite or a rumour? if it fell through be nice to get a striker for the same amount.

Surely you can see with your own eyes that we do not get enough balls played forward into the final third and keep getting caught on the break? That is down to the midfield at both ends of the pitch causing our goal problem?

We now have some steel in midfield plus 2 very direct wide men to play on the front foot.

For me a cracking window of trading places?



13 Jan 2018 21:28:17
Interesting stat mentioned in the game our squad today was purchased by 5 different managers who bought them for different reasons and to play to play different styles, how many managers have had this defence now I can only see one constant and the same problem.

Red James

1.) 14 Jan 2018 09:18:10
Yes but Red James, we HAD to get rid of Warburton because we weren’t challenging for promotion. Can’t you see?

On a slightly more serious note - what could realistically have been expected of AK yesterday? He had less than a week to implement a new strategy with a ‘pick n mix’ squad.

2.) 14 Jan 2018 11:33:34
apart from Traore that defence was rock solid under Dougie Freedman.

3.) 14 Jan 2018 11:45:00
Under Freedman we only had Antonio with any freedom to go forward, the rest had to defend first, then run over acres of the pitch to get close to taking a shot, let alone in the oppositions 6 yard box.

4.) 14 Jan 2018 11:46:52
They never troubled us defensively yesterday.
Let's be honest. They hit the bar and scored a goal and that was it.

Unfortunately, there seems to be a desire to play with a defensive midfielder in every game for some unknown reason?

At home against teams who sit back and soak up pressure it would be better to play with two up front and organise the midfield better so we don't get countered.

How's about the midfield hold midfield for a change and the strikers try and kick the ball in the net.

Vaughan is our best player but he shouldn't be! He shouldn't even be playing when were at home!!!!

5.) 14 Jan 2018 14:00:32
I wasn't doubting MW sacking but until someone gets a good run in charge it will never change you could have the best manager in the world but without funds how can he shape the squad he wants I just can't see an end to this merry go round

6.) 14 Jan 2018 14:46:36
After avoiding relegation on goal difference anyone expecting a promotion challenge have there heads in the clouds

7.) 14 Jan 2018 15:17:42
The owners seem to think we should be top six with this squad?
I don't agree unless there is some investment in players or some wheeling and dealing.
Going to be an interesting few weeks till the widow closes.

8.) 14 Jan 2018 15:30:46
Under Freedman we defending as a team and I expect Karanka to install that in these players over the coming month but our midfield and forwards under MW didn’t track back enough even our fullbacks would bomb for Arsenal and not get back or get covered. It is one issue I have with Dowell though he is our best player at creating he is awful in any defensive way, McKay, Clough, Walker, Cummings are all poor at times tracking back. Cash and Osbourn make a big difference cause can push forward and have the energy to get back too and also means Vaughan can sit back in Centre too.
Under Monty and MW we didn’t defend as a team and this was difference when Brasil came in for Leeds and Arsenal we were solid as a team defensively and organised to defend as well as attack. Even yesterday we were better and Villa didn’t get many real chances but is still work to do.

9.) 14 Jan 2018 15:38:58
What defending did Antonio do, or did you not count him as part of the team? 😁 😁 😁 😁 😁.

10.) 14 Jan 2018 18:01:47
2 missing players yesterday from Dougies back 5. De Vries and Pinillos. Nuff said . .,

11.) 14 Jan 2018 18:26:44

A while back a poster said Pinillos has missed a lot of the season for his new club, how true that is i do not know, but if it is What Use Would He Have Been?

12.) 14 Jan 2018 18:30:28

13.) 14 Jan 2018 19:06:18
How true FF79, no point in pointing to players that have left when they are not playing much at their new clubs because of injuries.

14.) 14 Jan 2018 19:08:23
If freedman defence was rock solid ?how come we lost 22 games under him?

15.) 14 Jan 2018 19:42:17
Enough of this nonesence, #KarankaOut. There, I said it.

Also - pitching a new show to the BBC next week. “Fawaz’s Bank Balance” stars in an Apprentice style spinoff called “You’re Forest Fired”. Two managers sacked every episode. The sister show called “A club on it’s knees” presented by Dougie Freedman, who as usual, looks soaking wet.

16.) 14 Jan 2018 20:02:26
FF79 we've nearly lost 22 already and we are only half way through the season.

17.) 14 Jan 2018 20:01:31
LDN red very droll indeed again another Warburton patriarch rears it’s ugly head.
If you read my posts providing you can
read and I’m not talking about cockney slang I’m behind
I’m certain you are Warburtons twin as you are both spurs fans!
Next week we have a spin off series series of only fools and horses starring LND Red as Rodney and Mark Warburton as Delboy.

18.) 14 Jan 2018 20:27:49
Perks, exactly we weren't watertight then and we're not now.
Karankas needs a lot of funds to get us where he wants, some wheeling and dealing to get there.
Owners need to see were not top six, so back him now with at least three new recruits or we will carry on struggling.

19.) 14 Jan 2018 20:40:12
I knew you'd like being a krankie
I'm ready for a cup run ?

ha ha, i think you caught a little fishy there FF79:)

Read online Jason Cummings is a 1 mill target for rangers.

Red James

1.) 09 Jan 2018 23:06:03
Rangers have not got £1m to buy a player the club is running out of cash and will be selling this Jan. Fortunately we will not now be buying their cast offs!



09 Jan 2018 19:14:25
Just read that Cummings is a 1 million pound target for rangers but doesn't want to leave if AK will play him.

Red James

1.) 09 Jan 2018 19:44:39
Ed007 said they can not afford it.

2.) 09 Jan 2018 19:45:28
For a million quid I would give him a piggy back to Glasgow.

3.) 09 Jan 2018 20:10:04
Give me a million quid and is take you both.😂😂😂

4.) 09 Jan 2018 20:18:32
They only want to stump up a tenner as down payment and pay the rest in instalments.

5.) 09 Jan 2018 20:23:06
Very funny FF79. I would rather give the dosh to AK. He would spend it wisely.
You can take Hobbs if you like. I will pay the bus fayre. Cheers mate.

6.) 09 Jan 2018 20:31:03
Not without tonto wouldn't want to be the "lone ranger"taking Hobbs up to Glasgow,he's bound to be sick.😂😂😂

7.) 09 Jan 2018 21:35:29
Jack Hobbled. That is all.



29 Jun 2017 09:53:58
Didn't like MW comments on Britt to me that was just an advert saying you can have BA if you bid enough. should of been he isn't for sale.

Red James

1.) 29 Jun 2017 10:44:17
apparently andreas bouchalakis will have a trial before we decide whether to take him on loan. i feel like he's been forced on warburton to have a look at him.

2.) 29 Jun 2017 17:26:39
No harm in having a look, provided Warbs and the football guys have the final say.

So much criticism about our attacking threat boring manager ect but are we leaking 2 to 3 goals a game now? Bereton upfront on his own and couldn't even control a pass to his feet today or should ak of sorted our attack first instead of our defence/ midfield until we get to the summer and can add a striker that can play that lone role were going to struggle but for me still steps in the right direction just people expect us to too go from the team we were to a too 6 side after a month it's this lack of patience that has caused a lot of the manager revolving door we have had.

Red James

1.) 11 Mar 2018 19:08:01
Great post James 👍

2.) 11 Mar 2018 19:35:23
Totally agree



02 Mar 2018 07:27:49
I see so many posts that the last 3 games have been against poor without realising were one of those poor teams now as well we avoided relegation on goal difference and one of the worst defensive records again this season so it's a very good improvement over the last 3 games in my book.

Red James

1.) 02 Mar 2018 22:26:12
You can only beat what's in front of you and their are no easy games in the Championship?



25 Feb 2018 16:46:01
I think I'm missing something why do we need another 10 points to be safe were 10 clear already so do people think someone in the bottom 3 is going to pick up 20 points in the last 12 games of season never going to happen.

Red James

1.) 25 Feb 2018 17:14:26
What people are afraid of is our famous inconsistency, it is not we need to be another 10 points clear, it is if we lose three out of the next four games we are fighting against relegation yet again.

Off course all we have to do is match the results of the bottom three to be ok, but after winning 5-2 against Holloway's hollow team we would like to finish the season with a flurry.

2.) 25 Feb 2018 17:20:40
Just checked the bottom 4 and they have 2 points each from the last six games would take a drastic change in form, on those stats if we lost all our last 12 we would finish 6 points clear of relegation 😂😂

3.) 25 Feb 2018 17:28:22
I think two off the current bottom 3 won’t go. It could stay as it is but I half sense a couple will have a mini revival and others like QPR could get sucked in. Then again it could all be quite uneventful with the bottom three continuing to be the worst three teams in the league.

4.) 25 Feb 2018 19:56:47
We need to build a winning mentality now to take into next season not just get enough points to stay up and put our feet up.



19 Feb 2018 15:46:52
I understand everyone's concern at bit scoring goals but as ak said you build a house starting with the roof all successful teams are built from the back he is clearing trying to stop shipping 2 goals a game first before moving onto attacking threat it's just going to take patience I think.

Red James

1.) 19 Feb 2018 16:51:52
Wow should of read that before posting lol

2.) 19 Feb 2018 17:50:08

"Can he fix us??? No he can't!!!" 👷‍♀️👷‍♀️👷‍♀️😂😂😂

5.) 19 Feb 2018 19:12:28
Was meant to be you don't build a house starting with the roof, trouble is everyone wants instant success and that usually means spending mega no st and even then still no guarantee even the great BC wouldn't of lasted 5 minutes with how a lot of fans are now and until people realise we are no longer a big club in financial terms this manager revolving door will never stop

6.) 19 Feb 2018 20:03:09
It's not the fans who have sacked the managers it's the owners.
They are the ones who are impatient.
They talk stability and all sorts but all of them from Doughty to fawaz and now markinasis have all sacked managers far too frequently.
If that's what we're used to no wonder when results don't go right fans want a change.

7.) 20 Feb 2018 01:24:48
Lol Spanish villas . start with a big sombrero then lift up and insert attic , then first floor , ground floor then foundations . Sounds like our way of building a team 😂😂😂

10 Feb 2018 15:11:30
Here we go already why have we got in so many new players yet play hardly any of them what we have clearly isn't working that's why we bought them in.

my earlier point exactly RJ

Doesn't matter how much money the owners have it's how much we can spend to keep inside ffp and with fawas dealings still on the accounts I'm guessing it's not much unless we sell
