  1. hard eight is worth a look
  2. thanks for that have you backed cardiff for promotion?-they are 12/1 or an alternative would be to win the play offs at 20/1
  3. there were rumours linking us with hanley, morrison (whats he like and whats he worth?) and jagielka
  4. very few rumours it has been quiet. last close season we had deficiencies which were never addressed eg a centre half to replace loovens, a central midfield ball winner as hutchinson is often injured/suspended, a winger. None of these were signed -we had 2 wingers on loan who were rarely selected-mcmanaman and buckley. I do not have faith in Carlos in terms of recruitment and wonder how much input he has as we often buy players who he then does not pick. The recruitment is also haphazard and we seem to sign players because they are good players rather than because we need them. The squad has depth but is quite old and we lack pace in general. We should have another top 6 finish without being good enough to finish in the automatic places-i hope i'm wrong. Also Carlos is very negative and if we take the lead he sets us up to hang on and grind out results. The football was dire to watch last season. I'm not very positive am i?
  5. sheffield wednesday
  6. the market looks quite congested to me Stevie with teams like norwich and wolves as low as 10/1 in places it seems the bookies are unsure which is fair enough at this stage i took some of the 10/1 on boro and expect them to shorten up to around 6/1 and be clear favourites. Back to your team how do you think Zohore will fare this season?
  7. to counter that bet365, Ladbrokes and William hill are pretty good
  8. increasingly bookies won't take even small bets stan james are imo a complete shower - can I have £20-no, can I have £10 no, a fiver? betvictor today tried to have 10 ew on champ top scorer bet no, can I have a fiver e/w yes but the 50/1 is now 28/1 it's pathetic - in the last case they cut the price without laying anything to me at the prevailing 50/1
  9. boro were still 10/1 yesterday which has now gone with the signing of assombalonga they look to have the best squad in the league i'm surprised villa are so short-kodjia will be missing for a couple of months and hogan has his injury issues sheffield wednesday have only added george boyd and need a centre half, centre midfield ball winner and winger i have a feeling fulham will struggle to replicate last seasons efforts i can't see beyond boro
  10. i'd expect barnsley to be ok and quotes as low as 3/1 for preston are ludicrous
  11. the only bet i've had so far is bolton to be relegated at 3/1 they are skint and although they have a good manager i think they will struggle.
  12. i'm a wednesday fan and think that it will be close and also that huddersfield have a better chance than the bookies give them credit for. Hooper is crucial to the way we play, without him the midfield sit too deep and the strikers are isolated. Hutchinson is important as a destructive force in midfield and allows bannan to move further forward. Both Hutchinson and hooper missed the first leg and are injury doubts for this leg. I think this could go either way, with wednesday slight favourites. Wednesday will probably set up in a similar vein to sunday, much will depend on how huddersield approach the game, and i expect a cagey first half, with the first goal being crucial. In many home games this season wednesday have not started playing until the second half. Hopefully the crowd will spur them into action tonight.
  13. hooper is apparently injured for Wednesday which if true will be a big miss as he helps link the play, that said I would hope we will have too much for Huddersfield who seem to have gone right off the boil. I think people are getting carried away with Fulham and the prices on them and reading look wrong to me. Reading at 6.4 on betfair seems a little disrespectful and I would call it much closer than that. Fulham 7/4 is very skinny imo.
  14. I think fulham are being overrated at 2/1 and will back reading at 5/1 Wednesday rested 10 today and had a man sent off
  15. One thing that would put me off wigan is they have no fit strikers and the manager continues to play obertain up front which is bizarre, nick powell is their goalscorer and he starts on the bench
