    I know I posted this on Tuesday -and on the last thread realising there’s a new one after posting.but what is your top 5 results (for us) this season?

    Mine are

    1) TOON 3-0 Man u ( tortured the champions at the time)
    2) Chelsea 0-2 TOON ( best away result, GOTS)
    3) Stoke 1-3 TOON (best away performance)
    4)TOON 2-0 Bindippers ( humiliated the scousers)
    5) mackems 0-1 TOON (Raylor over the wall)

    Worst 5?

    1)Wigan 4-0 TOON (well beaten by a relegation scrappers)
    2) Fulham 5-2 TOON ( 2nd half collapse)
    3) Spurs 5-0 TOON ( weakened team, steamrolled)
    4) Brighton 1-0 TOON ( does anything need to be said?)
    5) TOON 2-3 WBA ( conceded on the break)

    Best –
    After 3-0 against Manu I would put Mackems home 1-1 as it would have killed our season if we had lost imo (it also rid us of brutooon). Then scouse 2-0 (We’re in the top 6) then Chelski (Cisse/assured 5th) and surprise it may be but blackburn in the cup as it heralded the onset of the great HBA.


    Fulham 5-0 defeat from nowhere and by nobody. Next Wigan 4-0 and Everton 3-1 as they combined to banjo our CL hopes. Strangely, mackem home 1-1 again! Why? Should not have looked so confident at our place, they shook us up (thanks though, Shola). Brighton – no need to lose at all, reckless.

    They’re the obvious top and bottom five. I’d probably have the Liverpool victory top.

    And maybe the west brim victory instead of the Stoke one.

    I voted for Mbiwa and Debuchy.

    Mibwa because he’s a strong defender, captain and can ply anywhere along the back 4. Debuchy because he is a quick and talented RB that is good mates with Cabaye so will settle in quickly and he must be very good when we have Arsenal and ManUre as competition for his signature.

    Super Magpie – I agree with all your best 5 and most of your worst 5 but I am afraid I’d have to include Liverpool Away as one of the worst performances also, we were woeful that game.

    Debuchy and Alderweireld for me. Don’t mind between Alderweireld and Mbiwa though.

    Interesting that Pieters is there, I thought people might have been put off by his constant injuries.

    I voted for Mbiwa and Debuchy but I also think we need another LB to challenge Santon so I would go for Nicolai Boilesen. Get those three along with Remi Streete pushing through and I will be very happy with our defence for the coming campaign. HWTL 🙂

    IMO Rodriguez is much better then Rhodes. We should try to get: 1.Rodriguez, 2. De Jong or Dost, 3. Hoillet or Cabral or Johnson, 4 Martin or Corgnet or Maher or Siem De Jong
    5. Debouchy,
    6. Mapou if plausible (Pieters or Boisen if not), and 7.quallity defender maybe Alder… what ever he is… That’s my Seven players in. I would make it 8, but diame is african.. (That’s pitty).. Out: Ranger, Loverkrands, Best, Simpson, Guthrie, Smith, Xisco if plausible that 6-7 out. That would beperfect. We could attack all fronts. I know it’s not going to happen, but on the other hand your young prospect will have some chance to step up more. (Fergie, Abeid, Vukcic, Tavernier, Dummet, Streete)

    Mbiwa & Debuchy the obvious stand out choices for me as they’re both the best options.
    Mbiwa’s Attributes: Quick, Strong/Physical, Leader, Versatile, Powerful Header to score & clear
    Debuchy: Quick, Consistant unlike Simpson, Good tacker & crosser, Versatile & good mates with Yo.
    Alderwereid is also a good option if we miss out on Mbiwa.
    Don’t think we need a new LB to compete with Santon as Paul Dummitt is a very good, highly rated player and can provide cover also Jonas, Perch, R. Taylor, Fergie & if we get Mbiwa can provide cover there (Mbiwa started his career as a LB).

    Yea, gotta say, I have not seen pieters play well for more than 1 game.
    He would get ripped apart every week. Even played c**p against England.
    And I’m sure he’s out injured at mo, which might take a bit of extra bedding in and everything.
    Massive NO to him but any of the others on the list are welcome

    i say ask colo as he knows what it takes to be a good defender 🙂
    i trust whoever carr and pards bring in tbh but a cb is a must and not a utility player we need some1 who knows that possition inside out and can read the game like colo

    Debucy and Pieters would be my choice, Debucy to replace Simmo and Pieters as he can play centre half and left back, gives us more options and cover.

    Can’t see Willo getting many games next season with Taylor back too but we are going to need him with all the cup games.

    @Troleibusiukas_LTU your targets are plausable but i doubt we’ll sign 7 players we could sign 6 but i think we’ll sign 5 e.g. Mbiwa, Debuchy, Martin, Rhodes & Hoilett

    What about worst home games?

    swansea 0-0
    wolves 2-2
    sunderland 1-1
    chelsea 0-3
    wba 2-3

    Bet we all expexted at least nine points out of that!

    And Norwich 2-4 would be in my worst away list.

    If anybody had ever watched DOUGLAS he is VERY VERY SLOW.So don’t know if that would work playin with Collo.To be honest whoever comes in they will have to be better than Saylor to start off with.He was on fire when he played maybe in road to an England callup

    I think we sign 3 defenders (1 RB, 1 CB, and hopefully Yanga-Mbiwa who is a hybrid) 1 Young CF (or two if Ba leaves), and 1 DM….and of course, Amiltifano, who is already signed.

    might lose guthrie, loven, alan smith, simpson, best, Williamson? and (hopefully not) Ba

    I hope the Bindippers get Bruce 🙂 but realistacally it’ll be rafa. Bad choice, Kenny’s 2nd coming didn’t go well so rafa could be even worse. What I don’t understand is how Liverpool fans are so devastated that they have sacked dogleash. They’ve had a poor league season and if it was any other manager they’d have been calling for his head before the new year. Typical deluded scousers thinking they have the right to be in the top 4 every year.

    Well from story n rumours I’ve heard today they’ve ditched Douglas deal n now see Toby alderweild as no1 target which is fine by me bcoz although I’d of been happy with Douglas, alderweild n mbwia would of been ahead of him

    I voted for alderweireld and Debuchy, think vertoghnens out of our reach and pieters is too injury prone. M’biwa is on the verge of the title and might want to stay at montpellier,and Douglas dosent impress me. Debuchy is France’s no.1 RB good mates with cabaye, plus we desperately need a new full back. alderweireld because he’s better than Douglas and would cost less than M’biwa

    I went for alderweireld and Debuchy as well. Think they would add a lot to the side.

    Vertongen would be good but he will end up at a higher level. Yanga-Mbiwa would be good as well.

    And I think the liverpool fans are right……Martinez is no where near good enough for liverpool.

    He has done well with wigan but not amazing….he has narrowly avoided relegation a few seasons in a row, that is nothing special.
