    The match day thread never fails to deliver, even if it's a meaningless pre season friendly.

      The thing that's most frustrating me with a lot of the negativity is that it's "we've signed nobody, the club are shite!". When the club itself have said "the market is a nightmare, we're trying".

      It's obvious that they ARE trying to sign players but also trying to not put us in a Palace style "bankrupt if you don't sell a player for £40m profit per season" situation.

      It's not that simple FFS! Of course we need to strengthen. Of course we need to not bankrupt the club. The people doing the jobs that the moaning twats don't get are trying to do just that. Not sitting on their arses going "yeah we'll be fine with Murray up front for the next five years". Is that what you really think is happening?

      There's always the option of doing a Fulham I suppose. Chuck £150m (plus similar in wages) at some random "names" and see how it goes?

      They got relegated btw.

      This is because something I’ve believed for a long long time.
      There are a HUGE proportion of our fans that are frankly morons who do not understand football.
      Unfortunately they never will and we have to put up with them. It’s not me being aloof or snobbish. It’s simply the ‘go to’ feeling when they get upset.

      Eg
      Their stance is:

      1. ‘Player gets sent off means he should never wear the shirt again’
      2,.‘Player missed a tackle means he must be a Championship player. ‘

      Pathetic. Please do just **** off and support somebody else

      Donít hold your breath because all the noise coming out of the club is about evolution not revolution so if we donít invest in at least a new striker and a couple of other FIRST team signings ....
      Thatís funny cos the noise I can hear being reported out of the club is it being being linked with ££m rated right backs, strikers and midfielders.

      Glorified training I think the season we went up we lost most of the pre season games.
      We lost to Fulham 3-0 and then did the double over them a few months later.

      Cheers. Potter looked about 2 years older in this afternoons interview but at least he now understands the enormous task in hand just getting to know what he has really inherited. Not a lot of time to get ready but will be fascinating watching the team learn in real time.
      Ha! To me
      He looked exactly the same as he always does and said some fairly normal bland things about improving and his team are responding to his ideas. . Couldnít read anything much into it all. Likewise looked similar after the thumping win last week.

      Actually, I distinctly remember Premier League Cairney, coming on at Craven Cottage, against Premier League Brighton, and turning the game from 0-2, to 4-2 in his sideís favour.
      And we have Premier League Gross who also scored today and has played in a team now in its third successive season in top flight.

      Sounds like Villaís approach.

      Iím really hoping that they have come back too soon and that they crash and burn like Fulham did last season.

      I like the cut of your jib, sir! It does amaze me, amuse me even, that certain fans go into verbal histrionics over the slightest thing. Common sense and rational thinking seem to evaporate from their brain. Yesterday’s match against Fulham being the perfect example.

      We lost 2-1 in a pre-season friendly. An occasion that is used to try out all things new, to see what works and what doesn’t, to see which players impress or not in any given position. A time to assess FFS! It’s got to be done in order to move forward. Would the brick bats and the ridiculous moaning from some fans be non-existent if we had won? Maybe. In a couple of weeks time it will be immaterial when the league season starts and pre-season friendlies will all be forgotten.

      For those of you that are complaining ad infinitum about the club and it’s decisions, get a f***ing grip! My advice? Enjoy the game, take the rough with the smooth, it’s what watching football is all about - well, for most of us it is.

      Wasn't there today, last night we were camped behind the dugout, a few seats away from Sir Bruno.
      'Not over animated is he, old Potter? ' I offered.
      'So long as it's not another Hyypia, he was like that' came the learned response.

      Keep the Faith, roll on Watford.
      Was the learned response from Sir Bruno?
