  1. Grayth

    For all you Critchley aficionados

    This exactly. Give him another window to mould his team, then see how it looks. We're probably underachieving given the backing. But you can see it coming together. Just not quickly enough for the babies who want everything yesterday.
  2. Grayth

    Forgotten loan players that did well for the pool.

    Steven Caldwell and Chris Armstrong (LB from Sheff Utd) are two that were quality for us but rarely get mentioned. Neither played for us very long but they both stood out.

    Is there a worse website than the Gazette.

    It is awful. More a sign of the times than the quality of the journalism (Matt Scrafton is very good and has adopted the Pool as Steve Canavan did.) With papers themselves making no money, the online content has to be monetised heavily and the focus is on generating "hits" for advertisers. The...

    Time to appreciate Husband a little more?

    Good League One left back. Can probably do a job in the Championship, though I think Critchley would prefer more of an attacking threat, having signed Mitchell and Garbutt to fill that role.

    Stuart Moore

    He plays for Reading. Was he available for free/peanuts? This guy's free.

    Ballard or Greta for left CB?

    I don't think it matters in the slightest whether a centre back is left footed or right footed. And I don't understand why so many on here seem to think it's important to have a left footed centre back.

    Ballard or Greta for left CB?

    Ekpiteta and Ballard are our two best CBs. Gretarsson unlucky to be left out. Thorniley will probably be out of the team at the first opportunity and I think Ballard will take over.

    I'll take the one we know is good.
  10. Grayth


    He is right footed.

    Frank to be sacked at Chelsea

    Don't get all the hand-wringing. Something to do with him being young and English? They have a squad that should be towards the top of the league and they're 9th and looking hopeless. They're unbelievably easy to score against. Chelsea managers don't stick around if they're not cutting it.

    Howe and Thorniley free to leave

    I think Sadler was met with a choice when it became clear Grayson was going down the pan and the "product" was becoming more and more godawful. When he sacked Grayson and appointed Critchley, he must have realised doing so would involve a certain amount of squad overhaul. This was especially...

    Kyle Joseph (again)

    It's hard to see him going anywhere. He's out of contract, surely he's happy enough playing games on a decent wage and looking for a payday in summer?

    Players you almost forget played for us?

    I do associate Kev with his time with us, though I appreciate fans of other clubs wouldn't. Really enjoyed watching him. A master goalscorer. I suppose Rob Earnshaw would be an example. His spell with us was very forgettable.

    Any suggestions for proven goal makers willing to join a League One team, @paulco?

    Ellis Simms

    If we're honest, this is a bit of a punt. Unlikely to immediately step in and unlikely to improve the first XI, but he'll get chances off the bench and if he makes an impact, scores a few and earns the odd start, it's a good signing. Nothing lost by taking a chance on him. Whether or not he has...

    Players you liked despite the consensus saying that they were bobbins

    Yeah Kingson cost us some points and won us others. He was bad, but not Sasa Ilic. I never thought Rob Clare was that bad.
