He will do well at Palace they open the pitch up going forward which should suit him well.

I couldn't help but think about if they Palace had signed Rajiv van La Parra instead and he was taking the Palace corners.

I think Pardew would have Rajiv van La Parra by the throat during the first week.


I dunno, corner to corner is a good tactic, nobody expects it. :lol:


Oh we all expected it alright.

With Cardiff having their best header of the ball off the pitch having treatment Kenwyne Jones your asking for a quality delivery just past the penalty spot to attack.
Wolves with half a dozen giants in the team should at least be creating chances from those situations.

According to Alan Nixon, Stears could be alongside Mancienne. He says Fulham want him, but Forest are after £2.5million.

Not just international goal, but in actual competitions. 18 straight years with an international goal in an international competition.

I hear Mark Davies played very well yesterday, had the freedom of the pitch because nobody got near him at stand still situations.

GOAL - Wigan 2 Fleetwood 0 - Michael Jacobs makes it a dream start to the 2nd half with a goal inside 50 seconds.

Yes, Knocker, but when we let Davies go we'd just pulled off the coup of signing Nigel Quashie on loan to partner Karl Henry, did we need Davies?

One of McCarthy's first big decisions! Strange bloke McCarthy.

Are we seeing a similar decision currently with McDonald?

Strange bloke Jackett. When is McDonald out of contract? First Stearman, next McDonald, then who, Ikeme? I'm starting to take a dislike to Jackett, as I don't think he's being heis own man, more that he's doing Moxey's bidding, on behalf of the deluded Morgan. I can't believe that Jackett believes, that he's going to build a winning team from what he's assembled.

I disagree with this. If it was Moxey and Morgan's doing, and been about money, I'm sure McDonald would have been sold to Fulham - afterall, if we'd have got a million or two for a player with 12 months on his contract, I don't think the fans would have complained too much.

We didn't sell Sako in similar circumstances, and I'm sure Moxey/Morgan agree that that was a good decision because he was such an integral part of the team. But, it's a very different situation if McDonald is going to be on the bench - that's surely a Jackett decision

Wolves didn't let Davies go, he asked for a transfer, he wanted to go. He was offered a contract but refused it. Leicester and Bolton bid for him and he willingly went to Bolton and the Premier League.

One of our many problems, is our frugal wage structure. As soon as bids come in fo the likes of Iorfa and Hause, doubling their wages, they will become unsettled, and so they will be sold. Like it or not, the players and their agents hold the aces, in football. If you don't pay the going rate, your players get going.

He went because we wouldn't involve him in our first team. He was winning man of the match almost every game out on loan at Leicester while we had Quashie and Henry in midfield, playing appalling. Davies wanted to come back in and play a part in the promotion push, but McCarthy told him that he didn't plan on using him that season so he took the offer and left. If we'd given him the opportunity he'd never have gone.

Yes and we're seeing the dizzy heights of football he has achieved so far. Thick Mick ain't so thick as some of us fans reckon - perhaps. :wink:

Mick wasn't thick but he was stubborn - both a strength and a weakness. It was Mick's way or get away and that could be for the better or for the worse of the team.

I think you should ask the involvement of Chris Evans in this episode.
If MM didn't want him why offer him a three and a half year contract? MM 'told' him...are you sure?

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned a Dubai consortium led by ex Wolf Andy Gray as the next owners of Wolves.
I could stomach Andy in the boardroom as director of football.

Why are you surprised as who knows anything about Andy Gray's connections in the Middle East and would he bring his digital tactics board with him for Ikeme to punch. :roll:

Personally, I think AG to be a big head - but what do I know.

Super and Big Ron after his dismissal for a racist remark ended up working for a sport channel in South Africa, (you couldn't make this shit up), however, working for a Middle East sports channel speaking in English (well his version of English) hardly gives me grounds that he has the contacts for a buy out of our Club unless, I'm missing a point of two here :?:

Jackie McNamara is the new manager at York City. It's his first management job in England, after being at Partick Thistle and Dundee United.
