Yam Yams are coming

Post by Stans left foot » Sun Oct 22, 2017 8:49 am

Obvious post, Wolves next week.

There's no doubt this is going to be tough and I'm not expecting much by way of points from the game.

Wolves are a club ready for the Premiership, debt free until being sold to a Chinese outfit they've invested the best part of £20M on players for this season, Neves being the stand out acquisition. A really tough challenge.

However the game could be a good benchmark for us. OK, we've not won recently but away performances have been steady and developing. ( I don't subscribe to playing teams in the lower half/near bottom are easy - in most cases they are just as hard )

For any of us having endured the hurt over the last 20+ years of waiting for a Langley to come through, well at last we have the signs that a few of our youngsters looking viable first teamers, so some positives. For a club like ours this is the only way.

Remember, most of us agreed this season would be one of stability and development. Here's hoping. Survival is the key and remain in the League.

( although I'm still pissed off at the team selection for that Brentford Cup game aniwall - I should let it go really )

You RRRrrrss etc
"Fing Poo Wah" ( your comments are as much interest to me as a dogs fart ).

Yowm better not let 'em hear you taking the pi$$ out of the way they speak. I actually enjoy most of the accents from around the country apart from Estuary. Older people sound better I feel.

Yep, agree, worked for nearly 5 years out of Tipton and some of the nicest people around

Actually the Yam Yam reference came form my Wolves ST mate, he said it !! On a wider front this is go g to be a tough game and although Wolves didn't play well against Preston they still won - just.

Here's hoping our guys have their shooting boots on.

Why can’t we get a Chinese billionaire to buy us, instead of an incompetent fool who wets himself when we get a goalless draw at home to mighty Burton Albion.

From what I saw the officials appeared to favour the home side, soft penalty and all that. I thought Preston deserved a draw.
Question everything.

What would be the benefit of a Chinese billionaire owner with FFP in place ? Our current owner is sticking with it despite being outrageously insulted on social media and displaying patience in getting the club on a firm footing.

Wright was signed from non league and Bright was signed from Leicester. Palace were his third professional club.

Surely we can (and have) sign another hungry non-league player, that's where our business model is at the moment isn't it?

How many players have come out of non-league football in recent years? Austin, Vardy, Gray? It certainly happens but it's rare and a bit tough on the club to blame them for not unearthing talent that might not actually be there. They've tried to recruit plenty of players from non-league over the years with minimal success. Adam Miller probably being the best.
