I make you right and even if things go pear-shaped you'd still be right on most of us expecting bottom three and praying for 4th bottom.

With all this talk of strikers...
at 21:17 10 Apr 2024

The alternative view is that we should be writing off all of them and starting again in the summer.

Not sure I'd go that far but I'd certainly be well along that path.

Let's also not forget that the one absolute quality forward we have is Ilias Chair and none of us can be exactly certain where he'll be next season.

Championship Predictor - final table
at 00:55 5 Apr 2024

Dunno about you lot but I want us to win every game between now and the end of the season and will be disappointed if we lose to any except Leeds (only side we play who are above us in current form table) or maybe Preston (one below us)

Obviously all sorts of things can go wrong, but no, I'm not expecting us to simultaneously start losing while a bunch of sides deservedly in the relegation zone win everything in sight. I think it's more likely we finish a place or maybe two above where we are now.

On complacency, that's a matter for the players and manager, not us. In Marti I trust.

Contracts can be varied "by agreement"; a lot depends on who has the bargaining power.

If they said: "Go to QPR, we're not covering all your wages and QPR can't, but you'll play. You're in the shop window. Stay here and you get paid, but you won't play, and we've not had any offers for you" then he might be willing to take that

(Pure speculation on my part; I'm just saying that legally that could happen.)

Very much agree with you on those two sides. They were both very good, very likeable sides and while they may not have won any trophies, they made QPR as a top flight side seem natural, not just the product of a brief glorious episode

For personal reasons I saw much less of the Holloway side but they have a big place in my heart because they turned round a truly awful period under Houston and Harford. The fact that they did it in lower divisions doesn't undermine that; on the contrary, the fact they did it for us when we were skint at places like Wigan and Crewe Alex matters to me.

We Just Dont Get Enough From Our Strikers
at 22:02 1 Apr 2024

Sorry, but I don't think that's the point.

I know where you're coming from: there's no point in slagging the bloke off, he's doing his best and I wish him well. Bitching about him when we win level a sour taste in my mouth and we don't have anyone notably better anyway.

But he just isn't what we need. I'm not convinced any of the others are either, though I think it's worth persisting with Armstrong to see if he can improve.

Dykes is our player and gets all my support so long as he's with us, I hope he gets a move that works out for him, but if we're still perming one of Dykes, Frey and Armstrong next year we are in for another relegation battle.

I've no doubt at all Cifuentes knows that and will act on it, he's clearly no fool.So I don't see any point in going on about the strikers in the meantime, but equally let's be realistic.

Looking at Andersen, Hayden and Hodge I'm fairly confident that we're a lot better at transfers now than we have been for a few years.

Not sure how much money there'll be, but am I right in thinking that some of the FFP pressures ease as the summer of 2021 splurge on Charlie Austin and Johansen disappears in the rear view mirror?

Plenty of praise for Cifuentes as coach on this thread, and quite right too.

Worth also noting (given the problem areas in the team which we can all see) that recruitment since he came in has also been pretty impressive; no real duds in the last transfer window and a couple of little gems.

Don't know who's responsible, and there's still the question of money, but it bodes well for next year if we stay up (which I'm not taking for granted just yet.)

First time I ever went to Dublin, my mate said "See that kid? You could put him down in any place on earth, and you'd know he's Irish"

Mind you, we never did check that the lad wasn't an Aizerbajainian who just happened to be passing through the Rathmines Abrakebabra.

Budapest
at 23:08 17 Mar 2024

I'd reiterate what MickS said about May being hot in Budapest.

I found that the smart thing was to treat it like a Mediterranean country - get up as soon as it's light, go out and do something touristy (most other tourists won't have got going), have a nice lunch (food, wine and beer all excellent) then have a bit of a doze somewhere cool (Margit Island was good for that) maybe with an ice cream, before going out in the evening.

Too long since I've been there for recommendations I'm afraid, when I was there Victor Orban was the great hope of the liberals and his party was mainly made up of students.

That West Ham video really took me back, what a great side.

And that was a performance without Wilkins - some very decent football played by Holloway, Barker and even Dennis Bailey in the midfield there, alongside the stellar stuff from Wilson and Wegerle.

Massive mistake by Francis not to be a bit more understanding of Wegerle and build a partnership of him and Les IMO.
