  1. Saddened to hear the loss of one the nicest guys you could ever wish to meet. Would help anyone, new or old. I'll list myself under the uncountable people here, who he took time out to help. Condolences to Suzy. Another sad day.
  2. Gutted. Not here very often these days but always attached. I know I'm not the only one with similar feelings but have many, many good memories from the meet-ups and met lots of like-minded lunatics on here! All of it was the result of Paul's hard-work and he went out of his way to look after everyone. His place was the only home I've ever been into where I was on a running machine at whatever time in the morning - a JD in one hand and a tree in the other 😆 Thought we would get a chance to have another meet up, shocked to see he was taken so soon. Few people will leave as many po
  3. Really struggling to see beyond a Norwich/Brighton double being decent value. 2 sides who should be fighting out for play off places, if not automatic spots, playing home against two clubs in decline. My club Cardiff, look set for a looonnng season. Despite the signing of Ricky Lambert, we look painfully shy up front and dodgy at the back. Brentford have struggled on the road already this season. With promotion hopes, both teams should be looking for comfortable home victories after losses, last time out.
  4. The best always start off steady. Its a marathon, not a sprint. Repeat the cliches after me....
  5. Yep, good English manager but unlikley to be considered for the national job for another 5 years at least. I think it would take a good start from Burnley coupled with a sacking from a better team not owned by a stupidly-rich foreign owner for him to step up to a bigger team this season and would then have to build from there. He would have to be frustrated with being unable to add to the squad, which is clearly needed - otherwise, he's got too much loyalty to the current group and not showing enough ambition himself. If they don't start well, their odds for a second quick return will plumm
  6. 3 potentials for me, with evens or better odds. Leicester showed no signs of a team that feel they've completed the job, in the defeat againt Man Utd. Despite losing the little big man in Kante, they've held the squad together (for now, at least) and made a few interesting signings. Hull look nothing short of a disaster, with no proper manager and poor squad riddled with injuries. It would be difficult to understand how any of the players could start this game with confidence. Agree with Palace. I like Pardew but he cannot get his teams out of a slump easily and the

  8. I'm sure I can be learnt how to do it!
  9. Any news on an app update for lazy welshmen who have become accustomed to simply tapping a button to open a site, rather than putting in usernames and passwords...?
  10. Seems quiet in here with under a week to go... wolves27 - you look set to sign Adam Le Fondre from us (Cardiff). He never really had a chance to play for us, given the fact that we had about 75 professional, thanks to OGS's "buy everyone now" plan! He wasn't a signing that exited me at the time, but he's reasonable at this level, not a 25-goal man, but decent enough. For anyone looking at Cardiff, I'd have to advise caution and avoidance!! A very brief overview: Manager Russell Slade has the almost impossible task of keeping the fans and the chairman happy, last year, he only managed to
  11. Re: Sky Bet Championship > April 10th & 11th I've purposely avoided betting on/against Cardiff for a long while. To say slade is better than solskjaer is like saying eating cardboard is better than eating glass. There's been media publicity over Leeds refusal to allow Cardiff more than 500 tickets for away fans, when we can often take a couple of thousand and Leeds aren't getting sold out grounds! The board have backed the decision to seems them all back and we won't take any fans! It's disgruntled the club and I think (and hope) it'll add extra fuel to the motivation. There
  12. Re: Sky Bet Championship > Saturday August 16th Cardiff played a predominantly 2nd string team in midweek, so, despite the extra day's rest for Huddersfield, we have a big enough squad to cope with any tired legs. I'm gonna go for over 2.5 goals again, as this is available at evens/slightly above. Similar reasoning to last week, I think that we are set up to attack and I've not spoken to many city fans who have faith in Solskjaer's defensive set up. I'd settle for a point at Blackburn, in the opening game but this will be a big crowd today and will expect the team to make home advant
  13. Re: Sky Bet Championship > August 8th - 10th Stopped just short with 2 goals. However, both sides managed just 2 shots on target each, in the entire game, which doesn't give a great picture for the keeping aspect. I'd expect (and hope) that solskjaer will be addressing the central defence depth issue for us. Not sure about Blackburn though - hell, if Kenwyn Jones can score past them, they could be worth backing on the goals coupons in coming weeks! :rollin Sent from my GT-I9300 using PL Forum
  14. Re: Sky Bet Championship > August 8th - 10th Blackburn - Cardiff Too early to say how solskjaer's reign will go/end. The expected departures have happened and we are still left with a strong championship squad (many of which were present in the promotion season the year before last) plus several new players brought in. We've also got a handful of youth players who are going to have a chance to prove themselves this year. I don't think Blackburn will be easy to beat this season and could be play of contenders if things fall right for them (although with their owners, this may be mor
