Because still using the thread from two seasons ago displays a lack of respect to teams below the top flight

Perversely pleased to have had a euphoric draw followed by an unbelievably frustrating draw in the first two fan-attended games at the new plough lane.

Gillingham we’re fucking shit and had nothing of note about them beyond Steve Evans’ panto act on the touchline.

Ayoub Assal is the best player in the league btw and I’m excited to watch him all this season cos he definitely won’t be hanging about after that.

it is still quite fucking hilarious that Evans' meteoric rise up the leagues led him to Leeds Utd at one point

you know who's begun the season really, really badly

well of course you do

we're cursed

O'Brien played last night but this was clearly a move to force Leeds hand to stump up the cash and stop fucking about. He wasn't really there, not that he shit out of tackles but when his usual extraordinary energy level drops by a few percent he looks quite an ordinary player. He'll probably get found out fast in the prem I say with no bitterness. We just need two Sorba Thomas's now so he can get on the end of his own exquisite set-piece deliveries and average 2-3 goals a game.

I used to go to the Bees a bit in the underhill days, so I've watched their decline to the neglected works team of a Stanmore leisure centre with morbid interest. To pick up Kleanthous on just one point among many, the 'Heineken strike' (actually a strike affecting the delivery contractors) was only due to start today, and was in any case called off on friday, so was obviously not the reason the club was scrambling around to source cans of Fosters for the opening game of the season lol.

that is a wonderful read ty

Most chances created in the Championship:

Sorba Thomas - 17
Ryan Giles - 15
John Swift - 12
Callum O’Hare - 11
Jeremie Bela - 11
Scott Malone - 11
Fabio Carvalho - 10

sigh if we had a striker who wasn't an injured Rhodes-to-nowhere or a 34 year old Frasier Campbell we'd be on fire. I think all our CBs are joint top-scorers now.

I think all our CBs are joint top-scorers now.

Same for Cardiff I believe, in fact I think Flint is top scorer in the league?

Long enough attention span for a Stephen Bissette blu-ray extra (aldo), Thursday, 26 August 2021 20:30 (one month ago) link

yeah he is! Although I think Mitrovic will probably get more by the end of season it's an impressive tally by this stage.

calzino, Friday, 27 August 2021 00:00 (four weeks ago) link

Just caught up on this week's Cup fixtures and you were pretty unlucky against Everton.

Long enough attention span for a Stephen Bissette blu-ray extra (aldo), Friday, 27 August 2021 06:59 (four weeks ago) link

yeah very unlucky in having a goal ruled out and Sinani missing a sitter and then Lees getting subbed for Turton was not a good idea, he looks out of his depth against championship sides never mind Everton. The defence has become more settled with the so far very impressive Nicholls in goal. Most people had very low expectations for a keeper who was let go by the MK Dongs and so did I tbh!

calzino, Friday, 27 August 2021 07:57 (four weeks ago) link

if you don't put Naby up front at some point this season you're cowards

he ain't perfect but fuck me he's a rheillee (imago), Friday, 27 August 2021 09:05 (four weeks ago) link

You must have enjoyed Vieira picking a strong line up to try and get some confidence going then getting gubbed anyway.

I didn't even notice! Too busy refreshing Charlton Life repeatedly to see if we've signed a left-back yet (we haven't, but we HAVE secured one of Rob Lee's sons on a season loan)

he ain't perfect but fuck me he's a rheillee (imago), Friday, 27 August 2021 09:14 (four weeks ago) link

My interest in the Carabao is comparable to my club's tbh, and it was good of crisp to not come a-gloating after round 1, realising just how meaningless his boys' 1-0 at ours truly was

he ain't perfect but fuck me he's a rheillee (imago), Friday, 27 August 2021 09:15 (four weeks ago) link

The fact that its such a shit noddy competition makes it even more annoying we haven't won it tbh

since you are a big fan of adult websites (Bananaman Begins), Friday, 27 August 2021 09:27 (four weeks ago) link

lol good old Noddy Sarr, man. He'll probably still easily score more than Rhodes with the kind of deliveries Sorbz puts in the box. He can do an absolute howler and then follow it up with a goal and a heroic perfectly timed game saving tackle in the space of 2 mins. But saying that if he didn't frequently make these mistakes he'd be at Barca!

calzino, Friday, 27 August 2021 10:58 (four weeks ago) link

my new hero Sorba Thomas ripping up teams every game. A goalkeeper where you don't have to look away every time the ball goes into the box. This is actually becoming entertaining to watch for the first time since 2017.

some very dodgy business going down at Reading. They are under a transfer embargo and Chelsea have loaned them Drinkwater and Rahman whose wages put together would almost equal their entire wage bill from last season. Apparently there are some links with the owners as well.

calzino, Monday, 30 August 2021 20:13 (three weeks ago) link

Saido Berahino has joined Wednesday on a permanent deal. I'm sure he used to be good!

calzino, Tuesday, 31 August 2021 15:38 (three weeks ago) link

now Andy Carroll in talks with Reading. Siri, explain to me in very simple language what a transfer embargo is.

calzino, Tuesday, 31 August 2021 17:30 (three weeks ago) link

buzzing that we've got Mipo Odubeko on loan after watching some vids - that old classic. Apparently we bid £2m and were told not a chance. Some West Ham fans don't seem happy he has been farmed out as their only outright 9 is Antonio. He's only 18 but so is Colwill and he's improved our defence immeasurably and scored a last minute winner.

calzino, Tuesday, 31 August 2021 19:53 (three weeks ago) link

getting £11m waste of space Mbenza off the wage-bill and O'Brien into new contract negging and despite not spending any transfer fees, it's been the best transfer window in years.

calzino, Monday, 6 September 2021 11:39 (two weeks ago) link

Brilliant, Darlo win their game in hand and we go bottom.

yeah it's been a terrible start

looking at the embryonic championship table I reckon those tricky trees are going to get a shellacking on saturday.

calzino, Wednesday, 15 September 2021 10:23 (one week ago) link

Chris Hughton gone, damnit I cursed it.

calzino, Thursday, 16 September 2021 13:31 (one week ago) link

We finally sign a centre half. He lasts 20 minutes before limping off, having fucked up to give them the opener.
