I have to say I think Long, DCL and Whiteman are all ready IMHO.

Agree with Long but I reckon Whiteman is close and DCL is a way off yet....had a good loan spell at Northampton but hasn't impressed when given the (limited) chances back here.

Agreed Vamps, although DCL isn't what I'd call a striker. To my mind he'd fill that "Baxter" position really well.

A point on the youth put by McTwat!.....we're not producing enough good players on a regular basis!

" We've not gone belly up like Soton and Leicester,"......no we haven't, i bet they'd love to be 10th in lge 1 instead of the PL with one of them going to win it......feckin' idiot!

I watched the whole thing and I was disappointed by his constant reference to "bad luck" - bullshit Kev.

I did like the comment about if the current set-up had been in place almost none of those recent NA signings would have been made, but as we haven't signed ANYONE since this committee was formed, what does that tell you about future business?

Anyway, as we're talking about the progression of the youngsters, well done to the U-21s after they beat Charlton away in the semi-final of their play-off campaign. I really do think that if Diego has finally got rid of his billy-big-bollocks attitude he could finally become an integral part of the first team next season, replacing Baxter if DCL is going to be used as striker back up.

Smith looks ready to make the step up as well. COYRAWW!!!!!!



By the way, Our Kev was supping Budweiser during that forum - shows you he knows fuck all about anything other than bricks and mortar

He also blamed KB for poor loan signings when we got relegated....same old excuses from him. Plane fact is there's never any real investment in the team and he quotes one season when he actually did and we went up. says it all....

Another interesting statement was when McTwat said him moving to Belgium when we were first relegated to the Championship was a mistake. I assume this is because he feels it's difficult / impossible to lead a club from afar (although based on the previous post, maybe it's because there was no Budweiser in Belgium, only proper beer).

In that case, how the heck did he expect JP and HRH to run the club from Riyadh?  What he's basically admitted here is that the club has been rudderless for several years.  The landlord will appreciate what happens when the rudder does one. The whole ship sails around wildly before it inevitably sinks and ends up at the bottom of the sea (or league one depending on the metaphor).  )O(
