  1. He took Norwich from L1 to Championship to EPL and managed Villa and Stoke in EPL also nothing to do with being cheap more his management experience which is significantly better than Lennons was. Think whoever goes to the green half of the ugly sisters is mad unless its for the money, expectations will be huge and they have a team to rebuild from a small core, lennon/the board let them slide badly rather than keeping on pushing forward.
  2. Difference of opinion , I will stick with mine thanks all the same
  3. The money available for a Europe run has changed alot over the years and its now well worth it if you can get one going. Of course the real value is in reaching the group stage https://www.uefa.com/insideuefa/stakeholders/news/0253-0f8e6d83afa2-0904576faee6-1000--2019-20-uefa-club-competitions-revenue-distribution-system/
  4. Team was within sniffing distance of the playoffs so nothing to do with performance and more to do with club direction especially as he just got 8 points from last 4 games, decent return https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/56225930 Lambert has been able to spend £0 in the time he has been there with just free transfers and loans hardly what it takes to get promotion, add to that the last time they spent anything was the season he joined (but I believe all before he joined) They spent £3mil but they sold nearly £10 mil. Man was working with a shoestring and doing well
  5. You dont fancy a player who at 29 should still be in his prime and who before he came to us was playing at Bundesliga, English Premiership and Championship level which are both significantly better than our level?? I will have some of what you are smoking. I cannot believe we have been able to get him and look forward to seeing what he can offer us, just so unlucky to have got injured in the first game.
  6. Added to that how about his first touch to setup Ethan against Accies even if he was wrongly accused of being offside
  7. Flynn deserves a new contract just for that run down the wing against Utd one of the highlights of an otherwise shitty lockdown
  8. I think Jim has been a great influence on Kyle who was probably abit jaded by all his injury problems but seems to have knuckled down and is now showing why Derby bought him in the first place. Will he become what he could be who knows but if he keeps on putting in shifts like the last few games and keeps providing assists he will do for me, noone in the team currently can pick a pass like him as consistently as he does.
  9. Ah yes Foley who is either injured or cannot even make the bench for Motherwell, dont get me wrong last season loved Foley but this season was off the pace in his position, thought he played well at CB but understand why he was moved on.
  10. Mcal multiple times last night chased from almost the halfway line to close down their GK when back passes were made, I think his Stamina was fine but agree in the past it was suspect and only recently has he improved.
  11. Another assist for Mcal now 6, but apparently not worth his place ..........
  12. Is that a joke? Off the bar, off the post and saved on the line, we have been all over them
  13. he was performing a role and doesn't any longer and has been moved on so whats your point? Junior had bags of energy but very poor decision making. You seem to think you know abut footballers so who will replace 5 assists and 2 goals in the current team, better than any other especially from someone who had a slow start to the season and seems to be coming good.
  14. Accusing others of being exactly what you are.....now thats funny, keep up the good work
  15. As I've said before thankfully neither your opinion nor mine have any weight at the club. I leave that to the experts there., the fact that Jim continues to play him informs me more of his ability than your opinion
  16. So hes a decent player at SPL level which happens to be our level but you are not bothered if he left but you like Obika (so do I by the way) who is a decent squad player and yet Mcal's potential is greater than Obikas. I guess its all about opinions but for me he is a good player to have in the squad and well worth keeping
  17. Why would we want to let McAllister go????? started off poorly but he has had injury and fitness problems, last couple of games he played thought he played very well and his vision and delivery are very good. He is one of the players not afraid to run at players and has got 5 assists and a goal this season so decent return for someone who is only now coming into his best for us. In fact I think he has more assists than anyone else in the team
  18. The contract has been on the table for a while now for JDH and not been signed, don't think he is the best by far although would agree he is the best currently in his role but Cammy and Ethan are improving every game. Mcgrath is the best midfielder at the club at the moment in my opinion, different role though.
  19. JDH is a good player and could be a great one but if he doesn't want to sign then we have players who can replace him Ethan has been steadily improving as has Cammy lets face it we seem t have plenty of central midfielders. I am more interested about getting others signed up on new contracts in the positions we don't have a surplus of players in Connolly, Flynn, Durmus, Fraser for example. Would still like JDH to stay if possible
  20. Great news and will hopefully allow them to now move onto signing up some of the soon to be out of contract players
