Their standard of football is really quite poor but they’re an honest, hard-working bunch.

Just the sort of banana skin opponent teams like us slip up against.

Some performance that from Pakistan. They always turn up with a bowling attack. Finally got some support from their top order. 

Genuinely thought that a target of 150 plus would have been tricky with the pitch just starting to misbehave. Good spell from Amir and Abbas

New skipper and 2 batters needed for England

  Next season's Championship
Posted by: Sw4Baggie - 7 hours ago - Forum: WBAunofficial - Replies (10)

So now the dust has settled on the season, I have to say I'm quite looking forward to next year, and at risk of sounding a little Villa-esque, I don't see too much that scares me going into next year. 

I think us, Stoke and Swansea will all be strong. We've all got fairly solid financial bases, some experience of promotion in our squad, and very few off field distractions, other than player sales/arrivals, but that's nothing new to football clubs. Both us and Stoke have moved quickly with appointments that seem sensible, and I'd imagine we'll both be relatively proactive in the transfer market given financial advantages and pulling power.

Of the 3 losing play off teams, only Boro' look likely to be strong next season IMO. Pulis has parachute payments, Gibson's backing and a strong squad. They'll be in the top 6 again next season (boosted by the obligatory 12 points from us and Stoke), whereas Derby and Villa both have big financial messes to make up. 

After that, there's not too much to fear IMO. The three promoted sides look unlikely to throw millions around, and whilst traditionally big Championship clubs like Forest, Blues, Sheff Weds, Norwich, Ipswich and Leeds have some decent mangers and are improving, none of these clubs have the financial power to match us. There seems no Brighton, Bournemouth or Wolves style owners bankrolling clubs for promotion. There will as ever be one smaller club that surprises people and does a Huddersfield, and teams like Preston, Bristol, Brentford etc have all the pieces to do this next season, but we shouldn't be fearing that kind of team with the respective resources we have. 

I firmly believe next season will be a slog, there will be ups and downs, and a top 6 finish should be deemed a success, but being rational, I don't think it's too much to expect. Even with the anticipated departures, we'll have an experienced group of players, many of whom have been successful, and in Big Dave and Jenkins, have plenty of experience of how to be successful at his level.

  McClean to Stoke
Posted by: Lightnin - 8 hours ago - Forum: WBAunofficial - Replies (20)

Seems Stoke are keen on McClean, rumoured we've turned down £4m for him. Stoke fans don't want him and doubt he'd join another Championship club. He still wants the Celtic move but plenty of other interest, Cardiff now in the race. He's a Warnock type player for sure!
