Looks like potential train problems on Saturday. Any ideas on best route by train to Derby?

Wilder

Another big knockout but against another sub par opponent. No doubt we’ll be saying the same in a couple of weeks after the AJ fight.

Three (maybe four including Whyte?) good heavyweights in the division but can’t see them fighting anytime soon.

I’m not convinced that Hearn wants the Wilder fight for AJ. Too risky to put his golden goose in the firing line.

McClaren
at 17:03 6 Jan 2019

Aside from getting most of the managerial decisions / results right recently, it feels like we’re starting to see the benefit of having a top coach on the training ground working with the squad.

I’m noticing improvements across the pitch in the style of football and individual performance levels. The players (see Freeman, Eze etc) look fitter than I can remember for a long time.

One of the main arguments for McClaren was the improvements we’d see as a result of his coaching methods. It looks like we’re starting to reap the rewards.

Boxing tonight
at 19:41 22 Dec 2018

Which fight are you lot watching tonight?

I fancy watching both but don’t want to pay £40 for the privilege. Will probably watch Warrington vs Frampton as reckon it has all the makings of a classic.

Presumably we have that pratt Hearn to thank for the clash. Maybe another reason not to pay for Whyte vs Chisora, though I fancy it’ll be a good fight.

That 1-1 draw looking better by the minute as they’re winning 4-0 away at WBA.

A few select quotes from a BBC interview with his good pal Robbie Savage.

"I was over four years at Stoke which isn't the norm anymore. We used to look at European leagues and see their manager turnover and laugh at them. Unfortunately you are in the situation now that there's this focus that you have to be successful as soon as you walk in and it's not always possible.

"My time at Stoke I will always look back on with pride as to be able to last so long in a high-profile job shows the good job I did there."

He tells Robbie Savage's Premier League Breakfast: "There will always be blame attached and I've always said 'yes absolutely, somethings you'd do differently with hindsight'.

"But it's never really all the fault of the manager. Sometimes he is the glue holding things together. I still believe that if they had kept me on they would still be in the Premier League.

"I knew the squad, the players, weaknesses and we were in the transfer window around that time. I'd said to the board we need a bit of help here to get us over the line. They agreed to that on the Thursday and unfortunately I was sacked on the Saturday. It's never just one thing, a lot of factors come together like a perfect storm."

Hughes is fast becoming my most hated person in football now that Captain Racist is no longer on the scene.

Has anyone on here invested / gambled?

Price is continuing to increase at a rate of knots & makes the returns on other investments look pathetic.

Good investment or modern day gold rush?

Does anyone else get the impression that some actors / actresses are jumping on the bandwagon at this stage?

I totally understand that some people have done very bad things but I do get the impression that some actors / actresses are using it as a PR opportunity.

I'm sure I'll take some stick...

Hopes for the new season...
at 16:24 26 Jul 2017

Not expecting much but I'll get the ball rolling.

I'd happily take mid table mediocrity with the emergence of a maverick player who gets the fans off their seats.

Maybe the latter part is asking too much but having a Wegerle or Taarabt makes going to games much more enjoyable even when we're drawing or losing to an extent.

Go on own up, who wrote the Fulham entry as a p1ss take?!

Fulham, 6th

I feel like that guy from The Great British Bake Off who had his Baked Alaska removed from the fridge too early by another contestant. Our glorious little season was reduced to wet mush, cake mix and tears by Reading in the play-off semis. The late flurry into the play-offs was more of a dream than a serious expectation, and overall it’s still been a thoroughly enjoyable season.

Looked our best player a few months ago now struggling to get on as a sub. What's happened?

Injured? Ollie giving others a chance to impress? Or maybe Ollie prefers players who can speak English so Sylla & Wszołek can't get a look in?

Defending

Seems to be a bit of a lost art form these days but Juventus have given a masterclass so far tonight vs Barcelona just as they did last week.

If I was a betting man I'd have money on Juventus or Athletico Madrid to win the Champions League this season as they're the only two teams who can defend properly.
