Here we go chasing an extremely unlikely prospect while a potentially good candidate in Labbadia will get frustrated of waiting and be employed elsewhere.

Seen this before.

That is exactly what i fear will happen. If Wilder is frustrated by budget limitations and issues with ownership then coming here aint going to improve either of those.

So when he chucks 2 in against Villa and we crash out of the play-offs? Where has this incomprehensible loyalty from yourself come from?

You dont know how hes going to perform against Villa. How do we know Brunt wont fall over and give Abraham the ball?

It's got nothing to do with loyalty its just common sense. Dropping him now will achieve nothing but killing his confidence and putting more pressure on his replacement.

The other Lugano 😂
So at which point would you drop him, tell me what he has to do to come out of the team ?

I would leave him in goal for the rest of the season now and leave it to the new management team to decide next year whether or not hes good enough.

And Diego Lugano DID have some good games for Argentina

No he hasn't turned rubbish overnight, he has been poor (that's polite) all season , right now if it went to a vote I'm confident over 50% would want a change , do you think he's playing well?

He didnt have any good games for Argentina because he played for Uruguay but its completely irrelevant anyway. He kept 22 clean sheets over a whole season so its hardly comparable to someone having a good few games.

Do i think hes been good lately? No i dont but he certainly isnt helped by the players infront of him. Our other options are Myhill who i dont think has even played this season or Bond who has had a couple of good cup games but has not played regularly at this level. We are better to stick with Sam and reassess in the summer if the new management team dont think he is up to scratch.

To cover a few points on here

"He's the best we have so back him"
No he is not Bond looks very much more assured

"We will rest others on Monday so rest him"
No, I actually thought we should be looking at resting players now, but we never really thought Leeds would lose to Wigan, maximum pressure and maximum effort, I would however take SJ out of the team

"Sarcastic cheering won't help"
Whilst I really try to back our guys throughout, I can't say the cheering was unwarranted , the way he just let the previous 2 balls go across the 6 yard box with not a murmur of ownership was nothing short of disgraceful for a professional

Right now I'd have bond, myhill, Morison ,Dawson , in goal ahead of him, he is that bad ..

He is not going to get dropped for either backup keeper and to be honest i dont think either are an improvement. He kept 20+ clean sheets for Villa last year, has he just turned rubbish overnight? Were going to need everyone at their best for the play offs so lets try not to kill the confidence of our number one.

It's just a reaction to his shitness to be fair. Fans react to situations.

Johnstone has cost us double figure goals this season. Put it this way if we still had Foster we'd be at least six points better off. AT LEAST.


I'm not interested in his fragile feelings to be fair. If he can't handle it he's not good enough so get him out of the team.

My point is that it creates more unnecessary pressure on him. The sarcastic jeering is only going to have a negative effect on him and the rest of the team.

I dont disgaree he has cost us points this season but he is currently the best we have.

Granted he should have done better with the goals but the sarcastic jeering when he caught the ball wont help things.

His defending for the second goal last night was embarrassing.

Did anyone see the GGG V Canelo fight?. Sounds like the judging was as controversial as the first one. Have not seen the fight myself.

It was a great fight, i edged it for GGG.

Not sure about some of the younger players. Beaten at Stourbridge tonight - a side that included Leko.

He was really poor tonight.

They're having their best season in recent history and all they can do is still think about us, i find it funny. Small time club.

He wasn't good today. At all. But Dawson was far far more culpable yet his thread hasn't risen to the top.

Completely agree. Hegazi was bad but Dawson was the worst out the pair of them.

Super Bob for me. I remember a time that he was signing footballs in IKEA (bit random) and when i met him i was just speechless.

Just thought I'd let you know what Tony Pulis has recently done for my family. I lost my mom a few months ago from cancer and since then my dad has been struggling a lot. A charity that my mom used to support wrote to Tony to see if he could send a card to perk him up and not only did he write my dad a lovely message, he also arranged for a signed shirt from him to go to my dad with my moms nickname on the back. I've criticised his football for a long time but to do something like that and go out his way to help my dad I'll never forget it.

Playing Craig Dawson at right back over Alan Nyom i find baffling. Nyom is 100% the better right back and i believe Dawson a better fit at centre back than Hegazi.

From what ive seen of him he is more than quick enough

I might be wrong but i'm sure i have seen a video of him catching Messi up and dispossessing him.

I don't think its any surprise he hit the ground running and slowly over time he seems to have had his attacking ability coached out of him. I will add i don't think his best position is on the wing, much prefer him behind the striker in a number ten role.

Looking forward to the Stoke game if he does sign for them. I will boo him until i lose my voice the waste of space.

Few interesting names in here! Can't agree with Rooney but David Luiz is 100% overrated! Maybe not the most overrated footballer in the world but i personally would put Ross Barkley in a category of someone who is overrated.

chris eubank jnr has cried off from the fight with our tommy langford and relenquished the british title.more daddy meddling methinks

Frank Warren has gone absolutely crazy! I was trying to find the interview where he is just ranting about him but apparently he was claiming he's not seriously injured and just has tennis elbow.

They're in meltdown at the moment. If we can get 1-0 up the crowd will turn against them and it's only going to help us. Feeling quietly confident...
