;D I always said play both of them ,like the last 20 minutes against Brum,ripped them apart.

This is when Bilic went to a 3-5-2 and it won us the game :D

i think we have enough mobility in the back 3 ,now,to work the play that way.


We certainly do if Slav decides to go that way:

                               Johnstone

           Ferguson     Bartley       Ajayi

Furlong      LIvermore         Sawyers   Gibbs

                                  Pereira

                    Kanu                    Austin



Looks very strong on paper as do potential replacements in the main. I'm assuming Slav would see this as his first choice line up.

Like the team but think Phillips would feel hard done by.

I like it. If Gibbs isn't ready  Phillips can play there, or come in as a 2nd half sub

Brilliant interview with Chaz

I'm with you on that. It's refreshing to see/hear a footballer that doesn't come across as scripted and robotic.

Looks like he's in trouble for it now, been asked to comment by the FA

While he's there passing comment he could always ask them what's happening regards the racism allegation against the Leeds keeper. He could also ask which is the potentially greater offence. A charge of alleged racism which appears to have gone on the backburner, or a spat on tw@tter which appears to have caught their urgent attention. Answers on a postcard please.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

Football fans dish out a huge amount of stick to players on social media even when they are not being outright racist some of it is utterly over the top and vile. Yet when a player bites back the fans clutch their beads and the player gets into hot water. Players now know how this works and as such I am surprised many bother with these platforms at all, and when most of them don't fans will complain that the players don't interact with them and are ever more distant. Well fans maybe need to stop being ********.

Sure I read somewhere the hearing is this week about the Leeds keeper.

Heard on Tuesday night this lad is on £40k a week with Southampton still paying him £60k a week.

£6k a week goal bonus.

Also still lives in Hungerford despite being told by Bilic to move closer.

Anybody know if this is true?

i would be amazed if we agreed to pay him £40k a week on a 2 year deal with us in the championship.

premier league maybe, but no chance in this league.

There is no way he is receiving £100k a week.  Why would Southampton still be paying him now he's left?
£6k a week goal bonus also doesn't make sense.  It would  be more like £6k goal bonus, not sure how the phrase "a week" fits in there.

So'ton may still be paying him as that happened infamously at Leeds when they 'sold' Robbie Fowler and a few others but due to the stupid contracts they'd been given the players were still being paid despite moving as no-one else would pay them anywhere near, so for Leeds saving say £50k per week from £150k was better than the player staying with them and them paying the full amount.
So it could be that's why Austin was originally reluctant to move, we were offering him a lower wage but then Southampton decided to 'save' £40k per week and pay the difference. But that is pure speculation

My guess is that Austin's outstanding contract was tidied up with the transfer i.e. paid up.  There is no way on this earth are we paying him £40k a week in the Championship. I suspect he only joined us when other Premier League options weren't forthcoming (were Palace rumoured to be interested?)

Agree with what Stan has said, Southampton likely had to compensate him in order for CA's move here to cross the line, and rightly so. Why should he have sacrificed money owed to him on a contract. 

I also doubt his living situation in Hungerford is an issue at the club. His situation would no doubt have been discussed when he signed. At his age (with a young family) and his profile I suspect it is likely we were happy for him to commute. 5 hours a day in a car can't be ideal but I would imagine he stays locally a couple of times per week.

Wherever he's living and however he's travelling, he doesn't look terribly fit.  But his strength was always nicking goals by being in the the right place at the right time, eg v Birmingham, so he was never going to look that good as a lone striker trying to hold the ball up.

Don't know where he lives but he is chauffer driven around, not sure if its due to a driving ban or just to let him have a kip on the way home every day or what, surprised club haven't given him an apartment locally, that's if we still own them.

Different to the 1950' and 60's.
They were sorted out lodgings and nothing more.
Bobby Robson had lodgings in Copthorne Road Handsworth and finally bought a house there too.
