Re: Do we still attribute ‘Europe’ to our poor start to the season?

I don't think Europe had any bearing on the first half of the season (maybe the first 2-3 games, whilst we were in Europe). I still maintain the biggest thing was the goalkeeping position - not that it was 'Joe Hart Ex England Keeper', but that Heaton was dropped and who knows, maybe there was a bit...

Re: Chris McCann given free transfer.

Some short memories on this thread I think. McCann, from about (I would say) 2006 to 2009, was one of our very best players most weeks. A true box to box midfielder who was getting 5 or 6 goals a season and won a lot in the air in the middle. He was also still only 22/23 when we got promoted to the ...

Re: Sala plane found

Cardiff bought the player, if they had not, he would in all likelihood have not have died. What I mean by that is I highly doubt that Sala would have been on said flight from Nantes to Cardiff but for having signed for Cardiff a few days prior. As a result, they owe the money. It would be very poor ...

Re: Jimmy Dunne

If we stay up then we will need to make a decision or two in central defence. Obviously, Mee and Tarky are first choice and will remain so barring ridiculous offers for either. The issue is that we will be stocked with Gibson, Long and Dunne after that. It will be hard to justify that many central d...
