    Just the once mate. I know we were bad, but we weren't that bad.

    Gray or Oulare, Success and Sinclair combined?

    Who cost more?
    Who scored more goals for us?

    I think the answer would have been buying a 30m+ player and not bothering with Sinclair and Oulare.

    Fulham or Brentford for playoffs then?

    Tricky. Would prefer Brentford to go up, being fellow members of the vespid family. On the other hand, who will be a bigger threat to us next season? Arguably Fulham do to the money they have, Brentford will definitely lose players if they fail to get promoted.

    What does everyone else think?
    Shaun?
    Meredensi?
    Lee Hodson's mum?
    Would like to hear your thoughts.

    Brentford to go up. They are an example to follow. Fulham sponsored by a sugar daddy. No thanks. They will lose players as well if they do not go up. If Brentford play to their best they will win. I hope so. Only for them to no doubt get patronized by jug ears next season while he tries to remove his tongue out of Peps bum.

    Smudger didn't he present match of the day in his boxers once? I think I almost threw up when he came on screen.

    Did you have to drag that up again. :p It was one of the most revolting things ever seen on British television. The number of viewers psychologically scarred by the experience is incalculable. Shearer was reaching for the vomit bag in sympathy.

    Chickened out of it to a degree, said he'd do it in his undies if his precious Foxes won the league, in the end, he did it in his shorts instead

    If you look at the agent/club generated transfer news that's exactly what it looks like: Sarr: Liverpool/Wolves Doucs: Arsenal/Everton Deeney: Burnley (LOL) Del boy: AC Milan. No mention of Pereyra so I assume thats a done deal (maybe to Udinese).
    I'm hoping we can trouser closer to £100m for that lot. For me the most important thing is getting Troy and Doucs entitled attitude out of the club.

    Be lovely to see Brentford have that moment of glory (the ultimate 'prize' is something of a booby as we've all got a bit sick of the PL by now, but who knows, maybe they could make a right fist of it?) rather than a team who's been in the Premier League plenty of times in recent years. Brentford are the obvious candidates to get absolutely raided if they don't go up, although I they could yet have other aces up their sleeves with that scouting system (especially if they sign Toney), and besides, I don't think Fulham would emerge totally unscathed neither, Mitrovic would be off in a flash, and presumably a few other key players too

    They will stay up I predict if they go up. You can see Vile, WHU and a few of the other regulars and WBA in trouble.

    West Ham I think are slightly on the way up, Bowen and Soucek came in January and did very well, even when they were putting in absolutely gutless displays, they stood out. Villa will probably be in for another season of struggle, they spent a lot of money last summer (which they absolutely had to given the state of their squad upon promotion), so I don't see them being able to improve further even though they have a team of largely very average players. Palace too are in danger of entering the 'Championship 2021-22 thread' with their ageing squad and lack of any sort of form after the Bournemouth game, and it could get worse for them if Zaha finally departs. West Brom looked no great shakes in the Championship, in the end they were fortunate that Stoke and Barnsley massively picked up their form for the Brentford games, although it's hard to tell with promoted teams as they typically do a lot of business

    There is a YouTube clip ,Andre Gray Vs Manny or something like that, where the pro takes on the amateur. Top bins, cross bar etc etc. Oh my Picasso!. Andres first attempt at top bins!!. He just scuffs it
    along the floor then says "I've never taken a free kick n my life " Wow .

    Im more worried about some posts on twitter from some of our fans saying we will win the league easily than the players attitude. More likely to come back badly on us.

    We would surely get a fee for Pererya. He may be a uninterested mercenary, but he's still a full-Argentinian international in his 20's. We'd get 10 m at least.

    If no fee from Udinese then surely we’ll be getting 2/3 potentially useful championship players coming in the other direction.

    Depends on whether he's interested in Udinese, not been good for us for a while now, but does he see himself above them? We'll get something in return for him, be it money or players. Who would we want from Udinese who would be useful for us?

    The reason I thought Foster might not have wanted to stay is the same reason he didn’t want to be called back up for England. He’s stated outside of football he’s quite lazy and doesn’t want the extra work, so I thought the extra 8 games in the championship might put him off!

    Would definitely take that.

    Does anyone actually follow Udinese on here? Are any of their younger fringe-players any good?
    Opoku, Balic and Cristo come to mind ?

    I know RC loves them, but would like a less positive/ more realistic view if possible.

    I'm not sure RP has done anything to warrant a higher level of club than Udinese.

    Very much a David Brent style definition of 'in his 20's'.

    It's not an easy league. In order to impose quality on the opposition they need to work just as hard if not harder. Every team we face will treat it as a cup final a chance to bring the former PL club down a peg or two. They really need and I cannot bang on about it enough bring in a psychologist to work with the players. Plus keep Sarr and the likes of Suarez.

    We had such a strong squad that season. Wonder how it'll compare this season :confused:

    After watching today's cup final a part of me is glad we are out of the premiership. As a neutral I did not enjoy it at all. Arsenal seem to throw themselves to the floor at every opportunity and definitely got the lion's share of decisions. Anthony Taylor was useless as usual and only highlighted the standard of our premier league referees. We need Spanish or Italian refs doing our premier league matches as at least they would be NEUTRAL! I am convinced Tuesday's play-off final between Fulham and Brentford will be a much better watch.
