Steve Agnew - now that's a coach whose put the icing on the cake - i salute you Mr. Agnew - best signing brucie will make for us - BOOM!




29 Jan 2018 14:52:45
Seems the 2 strikers we're scrambling after are afobe and that world famous striker from dresden, you know the one fellas, renowned throughout the world with his name on everyones' lips, forgotten it already, okay i'll remind you this time, but don't make a habit of it, yes its the world acclaimed haris duljevic-OH NOW YOU ALL REMEMBER! LOL!




24 Jan 2018 21:47:25
Some reports tonight saying we're keeping an eye out just in case ulloa doesn't work out, depending on slimani joining newcastle, £5 million has been mentioned for nakhi wells, how true that figure i don't know, so should the question be, which of those two suits our style of play more, and i'm guessing nakhi wells, but who knows, we could gave another week of these shenanigans!


1.) 24 Jan 2018 22:11:32
Ain't Palace in for Ulloa too? If I had the choice, I'd go for Vardy from all the Leicester strikers, if only so we get a low quote from his family to get the North Stand car park re-tarmacced?


2.) 24 Jan 2018 22:26:48
So rumour is we’re looking at Slimani? Or Ulloa might fall through if Slimani goes to Newcastle? Can’t tell from that mate but I can’t see us getting Slimani in a million years, got to be fake.

3.) 24 Jan 2018 23:32:39
It says in local press that silami was subject of bids from Newcastle and one other. They won’t let Ulloa and the spicy sausage leave in same window. But the sausage wants to stay, so is not interested.
Just got the record. Vardy isn’t from pikey blood, his family couldn’t do the tarmac, he’s just a scum bag, and his family would take the cars parked there.

4.) 24 Jan 2018 23:53:42
what i meant Chris was that the barcodes want slimani, if he goes puel won't let ulloa leave as well, so as usual, nothing straight forward, that's why i'd go nakhi wells, if hogan has an injury, wells can step in almost like for like., though its being whispered about the forward from strasbourg on loan, his contract finishes in june, so figures in region of £50-100,000 being talked about, but i heard a little titbit that we were looking at bringing in a young striker from the irish league as a bit of a punt, last option stuff, but who knows anymore, maybe walkies can chat to his old opo keith wyness and let us know, and where's



19 Jan 2018 20:58:43
Have any of you boys and girls heard the absurd rumour that chelski are looking at gabby, it is the 1st of april, right?

Not listening Ally, if i believe long and hard enough, it will happen, just like in a walt disney film,

5.) 20 Jan 2018 13:40:05
If gabby needs a lift to Chelsea I will gladly help him,
Even thorough the snow!

6.) 20 Jan 2018 19:01:07
I'd kick him all the way there




17 Jan 2018 01:00:14
Friends in low places tell me the belgian fella is samuel bastien, apparently we've wanted him since 2015,reports say combative midfielder, scores from distance and is good with the ball at his feet, i thought we had lansbury for that, but there again, what the heck do i know, only thing in our favour is we can offer him first team football and allegedly more money (? ),


1.) 17 Jan 2018 11:30:47
I had a friend once.

5.) 18 Jan 2018 12:58:16
Me, Kieth Wyness, and MrKnowItAll are his friends, just need 1 more for a 5-a-side team. 🤔


6.) 18 Jan 2018 18:03:00
you can have gabby - when he's gets fit.

7.) 18 Jan 2018 19:00:29
Thanks lads wouldn't have it any other way lol. I,am expecting a big win against Barnsley UTV.

8.) 18 Jan 2018 20:57:38

There's a nasty rumour going around this site that Villadaz it talking
common sense! i'm not having any of it! lol! -fair play to you Daz, but can i also add to the roll-call of contributions Steve Agnew, he and Brucie seem to click when they work together, i'm not getting too excited yet because of fulham, but it beats the feeling of 12 months ago when we were looking down at those in the relegation zone, compared to now, for me, the most important player is going to be grealish, he seems to be the man with the defence splitting passes, but all the boys are upping their game, beers on walkies! UTV!




01 Feb 2018 15:20:37
A couple of years ago there was a radio programme about teams who get promoted, stay up a season or two, and then get relegated, and they asked the managers of some of the clubs it happened too their thoughts as to what went wrong, the general point they all made was that after buying 5-8 new players and intergrating them into the team in the first season, when they bought again the following summer to strengthen again, existing players from the promotion were sold by the club or the players wanted a transfer to play more football, all the managers said that in hindsight, the thing that helped to get them relegated again was lack of continuity, this may be a bit obvious to most of you but i just hope we don't make the same mistake as others, we need to keep a core of players and not spend, spend, spend, i think it was alan hanson or some other ex-pro who pointed out that's what the likes of pulis and pearson did, and obviously it worked for them, but i guess in the modern game, being so results driven and the shelf life of a manager being just over a season and a half, will our chairman dhow the patience needed?


1.) 01 Feb 2018 15:34:27
Keep the core group, But this team needs additions. Johnstone (who would count as a signing anyway), Chester, Hourihane, Adomah, Snodgrass (another signing), Grealish and Kodjia all make the starting 11 of a team who would stay in the prem. A case may be argued for some others like Taylor (wales international, premier league quality before) and maybe Jedinak (although his fitness is a joke) however outside of that most are squad players, players to come of the bench or youngsters who need experience. Bare minimum we will need is a keeper, centre back, right back, defensive midfielder and a winger, that’s 5 and 4 of them have to be made because of players leaving or going back from loan. If we can get rid of the dead wood; gabby, Richards, then we can start looking at what we need, I’d probably make the five signings I mentioned, but at premier league quality so they don’t need to adjust, there not from some team in ajerbaijaan no ones heard of they need to hit the ground running, an then I’d look to make two or three more for other weak starting positions and cover.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 16:17:00
I think the main issue is to buy quality over quantity this time,
This is where we always made mistakes with very poor expensive signing then being stuck with them cause nobody else rates,
So very careful planning is needed to take us forward.

3.) 01 Feb 2018 17:34:25
GK - for me look no further than Johnstone, he fits in here, won’t play at United so go and get him
RB - Trippier would be unreal but hard to get
- Jon Flanagan gone downhill a bit but was Liverpool’s regular right back under Rogers when they nearly won the league, definitely get-able
- Fosu Mensah make use of that united link again
CB - Aiden Flint if Bristol don’t come up he would be perfect
- Alfie Mawson if Swansea get relegated he is brilliant every time over seen him
CDM - Schneiderlin or Wanyama, both rarely get a game, always on the bench, brilliant at Southampton both of them
CAM/ Winger - Snodgrass loves it here
- Loftus Cheek (Loan) looks quality and Chelsea won’t play him

If we get one of each of them I think we have a fighting chance, if we want to be extra go and get;
Another CB - we’re losing Terry, Samba and Elphic aren’t the best so for the bench get another (maybe Younger) centre back who can be a back up, Worral at Forest maybe, Rob Holding maybe.
A left back - Joe Bryan from Bristol, Bertrand if saints go down, Kyle naughton maybe
Get another winger - someone like Mendez Laing, Patrick Roberts on loan from city? If saints go down get tadic or boufal
Get a striker - Benteke? Welbeck won’t ry a sniff at arsenal anymore, Would United let rashford go on loan?

And then😂😂😂 if Tony wants to make a statement, sign a Leon Bailey someone of that ilk, “the next big thing”.
This just shows how many options are out there, there is no excuse for not getting quality recruitment if we go up this year, with the sums of money you get for promotion and the options available.

4.) 01 Feb 2018 21:55:25
Johnstone, Ben Gibson, Baker, Wanyama, Snodgrass, Seb Haller, a LB and RB job done


5.) 01 Feb 2018 23:48:44
I think Jon Flanagan is not welcome at our club.
Sturridge might be an option. Let's see how his loan spell at the Tesco Bags goes.

6.) 02 Feb 2018 06:48:02
Ben Gibson, good shout Ally.



31 Jan 2018 21:23:42
Can i just say to all the merchants out there who want rid of alan hutton because he won't be quick enough or strong enough for the premiership i'd like to sat to you this, we're now nearly in february and for me, hutton is STILL the one bringing his A game every week, while others around him have dips in form, the championship is a bloody long slog, playing 2 games a week, its a war of attrition, and he's still standing tall, IF (and when) we get to the premiership, your telling me you don't think he came manage the crazy schedule of 1 game a week more often than not, then i think someone's been at the alcopops! you can argue about been prone to injury because he's older, but from what i see on the pitch, the championship pace is relentless, the premiership doesn't have the same intensity constantly for me, so i think no worries there, as for pace, terry never had any, cahill hasn't got any, and yet they still are 2 i'd like in my team, that's why you have the younger players doing the hard yardage while the older players organize and direct, when was the last time you say a bunch of either 100% young or 100% older players in a team-exactly, look at snodgrass, officially he's a winger, i reckon fag-ash lil could run faster, so outright pace is not the silver bullet, all i'm saying is he deservescto be treated with more class and dignity than they've shown him;and i reckon even if he only played 15 to 20 games a season for us he wouldn't let us down, so be careful what you wish for, he's a proven player, nowadays their rare.


1.) 31 Jan 2018 21:34:03
Proven player? Did you watch the season we got relegated, he, along with the rest of the defence getting exposed week after week, would you enjoy seeing that for the sake of effort and commitment? And I like the guy and he’s been one of our best players this year but don’t let that blinker you, he wasn’t good enough for the prem two years ago and he won’t be now. That’s not saying any of the other right backs we have will be, we need to sign one imo.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 21:46:11
Agree 100% chrisAVFC
Can’t knock his attitude or commitment but end of the day he won’t cut it in the premier league.
No sentiment in business/ football .

3.) 31 Jan 2018 22:22:04
That’s the way I see it Malc, sad to see him go and I can see why people want to reward him for his commitment and attitude however he wasn’t good enough 2 years ago he won’t be good enough now, got to be ruthless so we don’t keep having dead wood on the wage bill.

4.) 31 Jan 2018 23:46:15
Fellas, i see your point, but for me, i think he could a job, whether as a supersub, or playing every 3rd or fourth game as cover for injuries etc, what he may have lost in pace, reading the game shouldn't be underestimated, but the decision is made, and steve round can carry on making himself busy looking at would be young talent for us to invest in, i mean its not like we've done it before and it caused a right old mess, eh fellas?

5.) 31 Jan 2018 23:49:41
Dead wood? blimey Chris, you ever thought of working for the Samaritans! lol.

6.) 01 Feb 2018 06:55:32
But if he wasn’t good enough back then, what makes you think he’d be good enough now?



29 Jan 2018 15:02:46
Just flashed across social media-football region, seems we're in pole position for afobe, we'd prefer rent -to-buy, but guess what, just for added spice, if deeney goes to the tesco bag snatchers then watford have indicated that they would like to BUY AFOBE outright! aspirin please
matron, with a nice pint of stress to wash it down with!


1.) 29 Jan 2018 17:10:41
Word is Sturridge is off to the Tesco bags on loan, surely we could hijack that 1, or, if it happens, try for Jay Rodriguez, or, if Arsenal sign the Dortmund bloke and Giroud stays, try for Wellbeck on loan? Also, Sky is saying Tim Cahill on loan to Millwall, I'd have some of that? Agree, disagree, but at least throw some names in




24 Jan 2018 00:46:09
Thor has announced that 2 weeks ago he wanted out;but NOW the crazy rascal has confirmed he's not going anywhere and is looking forward to the remainder of the season! could be a blessing in disguise, but will it scupper one of bruceys' other targets now!


1.) 24 Jan 2018 08:12:41
I always liked Thor when he played for his other clubs and for Iceland and I was pleased we signed him,
But he has been played everywhere but his best position
I think now he has that position and deserves to keep it in front of Jedi and whelan,

2.) 24 Jan 2018 09:17:03
Your right on the money there Mainbob, what with the Jedi seemingly crocked, perhaps (as usual) by chance we've stumbled on a plan b that might be just the fix needed! no more falling into a barrel of tits and coming up sucking our thumb! (figuratively speaking of course)!

3.) 24 Jan 2018 12:08:15
You do realise Mainbob he doesn’t play as a sitting midfielder for Iceland.

4.) 24 Jan 2018 13:03:52
He does not play left back either?

5.) 24 Jan 2018 13:06:03
Thor is best where he is playing now or left midfield,
He admits himself he is not a winger with skills to bamboozle full backs,

6.) 24 Jan 2018 14:10:28
I’ve noticed you like to say anything you can to slate the management but when someone has half a clue what your on about so knows your talking out your arse you come up with awful excuses. Just the other day you was using Bjarnson as an example of why Bruce is an awful manager because he signed him and his “crap”. Bjarnson has been played at left back once or twice yes, when needs must, most of the time he’s played it has been left mid, where he plays for Iceland and where he played at previous clubs. You say he’s best where he is now but he has never regularly played here in his career so how would you know? When you look at it really Bruce has found a position for him to play where he can cope in this league, so not only does Bjarnson deserve credit for settling and starting to perform but so does Bruce. The constant Bruce bashing is boring especially when you just make stuff up to base it on, I don’t really like him to be honest but if your going to slate him in every post you put up atleast have something behind it.

7.) 24 Jan 2018 16:19:34
So Chris is it have a go at Bob day?
I am just saying what I see on pitch like any other fan,
I admit I not a fan of Bruce and I still think he is clueless tactics wise and nothing will change my opinion,
But I'm glad where we are at the moment and I want to see us go up as champions if possible,
Just accept that we all have opinions and I respect everybody on here so if you want to make it personal so be it,

8.) 24 Jan 2018 16:53:37
I’m not being personal, I’m pointing out what you do, and now your just changing the subject getting emotional. You implied Bruce has consistently played Bjarnson out of position and that defensive midfield was his best position. He has never played regularly where he is now so how do you know it’s his best position? You were talking 💩 And I pointed it out. And like I said in the other post when someone does point it out you start making excuses, like you’ve just done, started talking about something completely irrelevant to the topic “I’m glad we are where we are” aren’t we all? It’s nothing to do with it. And it’s nothing to do with respect, I respect your opinion but this was not an opinion you was stating it as fact. The way I see it a spade is a spade and if your talking 💩 your talking 💩, don’t start pretending your hard done by getting picked on if someone calls you out for it and say your getting picked on.

“Is it Have a go at bob day” “I respect everyone on here so if you want to make it personal so be it” have a snickers and give your head a wobble.

Walkies, bearing in mind the crap their going through in the boardroom, and how much tosh they've had to watch on the pitch in the past few seasons, and also bearing in mind how lucky we are with all things being equal, how about showing a bit of class and not slag off their stadium, yes, its a quick and easy joke, but i for one have had a lemonade or five in their company and i personally think their fans are top draw, so carry on if you like, but cut them some slack fella, not to wide of the mark to say we could have been in the same boat as them, so for any mackens who may have logged on here by mistake, hope you boys turn it around, you've more class than the bar codes, period.

Bit harsh Chris, he's got no defence in front who give a feck, i think he's carrying an injury and each week there's talk of more managerial (or over there, venerial) movement, the owners are clueless (long may it continue obviously), and remember when johnstone goes back in the summer, we'll need at least 2 keepers which ever division we're in, even though he plays for the knuckle-draggers, i still reckon he's worth a shout?
