    Jackson and Royle obviously don’t give a flying about the club or its supporters.

    This the same Jonathan Jackson who’s been a home and away supporter all his life, whose dad was a director and sponsor of the club, who travelled to Ibrox last season by standing with his son on a packed train with the rest of the supporters, and who has been plugging the leaks and keeping the club afloat for the past nine years?

    That one you mean?

    But the signing of this young lad who’s not fit for such a young age beggars belief especially from a top club.

    You do know when they say he’s not ft, they mean he’s injured, and they don’t mean he’s blowing out of his arse during training?

    He’s picked up an injury. It’s unlucky, but it can happen to any player.

    I think this is priceless.

    Graham Jones and Paul Cook played a similar number of games for Wigan.

    One is being given dog’s abuse at the moment on social media, whilst one is being proclaimed a club legend and would be welcomed home as a returning hero.

    This is the same hero was who was part of the management team that is still being ridiculed by some on this board – and even has a separate thread dedicated to it.

    I’ve seen on twitter that Martinez was the problem – not Jones: Jones just did as he was told by Martinez.

    On the other hand, Graham Barrow played almost as many games as Cook and Jones combined for Wigan, but was never welcomed back as a hero, and was also part of Martinez’s management team.

    But when things started to go wrong for Caldwell and Mackay, it was all Barrow’s fault.

    The fickle ways of the Wiganer eh?

    I fully agree but remember many times on here having to defend him from those who thought he was a “fat, lazy winger”.

    I certainly do.

    And Gomez.

    And Massey last season.

    I don’t think we’re differing here.
    In “the old days” wingers were forwards. Full-backs (including the #5) were defenders.
    You would never have expected Ray Wilson, George Cohen, Gerry Byrne, Alex Parker et al to go charging upfield.

    Absolutely gl, and the likes of Ashley Cole who could play the wing back role superbly are few and far between. I once watched Liverpool play at Coventry and as soon as Alan Hansen went into Cov,s half Jan Molby as if by telepathy slotted in at centre half. It was beautiful to watch but these were great players who had the skill nowadays we expect bang average journeymen players to play these multi roles.[/quote]
    Jean Beausejour is one of the best we’ve had at the club for a long time

    Did.united just win with two up front?

    They did.

    And City & Liverpool are fighting it out at the top of the league with 1 up front, or 3 up front however you want to look at it.

    It doesn’t matter. But throwing 2 strikers up front does’t automatically mean you will have double the amount of goal scoring chances as some of our learned posters intimate.

    Not much quality on show last night from both teams. Thought we were in control of the game until their fluke of an equaliser. Oceans of space for them to put in the cross. Massey should have been busting a gut to close the player down and stop the cross. We seemed to be strolling around at times. And with a free header in front of goal you have to at least hit the target. Rank bad defending for their winner, from Evans in particular. Even then we should still have been capable of seeing the game out for at least a point but for the umpteenth time this season we didn’t. Expecting a reaction at Reading but I’d like to be convinced it will happen.

    I think that’s what signaled him being taken off. He was dead on his feet.

    Rumour has it that Powell and MacManaman were left out the squad due to a fall out with Cook,

    Of things to come

    Must be reet then[/quote]

    I suppose you know more ? guess not , trot on[/quote]

    Can’t have been much of a fall out as Powell was sat in the West Stand with McDonald.

    Cupwinners doesn’t deal in facts, just his usual conspiracy theory nonsense.

    Why everyone thinks that all of a sudden at least 3 teams are going to win 2 more games from the last 12 than us when they have all won less games than us in the 34 so far, I’m not sure. Millwall, Reading AND Rotherham need to win a quarter of their remaining games AT LEAST

    Barlow and his dinner plate size rose tinted Jodrell Bank size specs pins our hopes for the season on other teams been sh1tter than us therefore we stay up not how were playing….for fookin FS your a joke pal !.
    The facts are were poor or have you been reading the League table wrong way up without your auto rotate on your phone ?.
    You still think weve got a young squad even tough I used facts to prove your talking out your cutters. You need to get rid of those specs because in your eyes we’ve no player over 14 and were top 9 clear, Barlow sorry but we’re not going up this season because there ain’t enough teams that are shitter than us.[/quote]
    On the subject of facts:

    Squad of 28 players

    11 are under 25 years old

    8 are aged 26 – 30 years old

    5 are over 30 years old (17%)

    And of those over 30 years old, only 2 are regular starters (+ Roberts who is in and out depending on injuries)

    The average age of the 18 players in the squad last Saturday was 27 – and that’s taking into account Clarke at 34 and Fox at 32.

    Hardly Dad’s Army is it?

    Firstly , Clarke, look at his career, he’s had more moves than Pickford’s so then ask yourself why? 22 ? ffs.
    A player who has yet to grasp the offside rule or is it a case he doesn’t have the legs to get back?.

    Bar his time at an in form Sheff Utd were I’d get double figure he’s drawn blanks at nearly half of those 22 moves.

    Clarke’s only had 8 permanent clubs. All those other clubs were season-long or short-term loan moves – which is why there have been so many.

    His goals to games record is a goal every 3.3 games – similar to Grigg’s.

    If you look at the past 5 season, his goals to games ratio is better than Grigg’s.

    Bar QPR (where he played 13 games) at all the clubs where he drew a blank, he played less than 10 games.

    And he drew a blank in only 7 seasons, which is less than a third of the total clubs he’s played for, not half.

    No, it’s okay. Don’t thank me.

    It’s Cockney Latic Groudhog Day…..

    Stop panicking everyone. Five points clear of the drop-zone with a better goal difference.

    We’ll be fine.

    *closes Cockney Latic tab again until after the next defeat*

    He reminds me of a modern day mark hilditch. Not the best of players we have ever had, but certainly a player who always gives 110% everytime he is called on.

    It’s a good signing IMO. He can certainly provide our youth that are coming through with all his experience.

    Stop talking sense.

    There’s nothing to whinge about when you’re talking sense.

    Back to the Max Power thing. Was that not just graffiti on top of graffiti?

    Officially yes.

    But the owner of the wall and businesses around there liked it. It’s the same person who did the one next to the canal footbridge.

    I think it’s more the fact that he’s taken time to plan, sketch and spray a decent bit of artwork, and some rugby fans has then ham-fistedly scrawled over it with a pot of gloss a paintbrush.
