    Bad memories off my last visit to proact as we lost 3-0 I think and the oxford fans had a little protest to the chairman!! And yes by looking at Pompeys signings today that have got to be favourites!

    Signing slocombe was weird cos we already had a class keeper in Ryan Clarke but he hasn't had a great season and apparently has fallen out the manager but he seems a very good replacement but ill wait until I see him more as some iron fans didn't rave about him
    I remember that - didn't you end the match with 8 men? I'm sure you had a red card sometime in the second half, another in injury time and then an injury when all three subs had been made just after the 2nd red?

    Yes your correct actually, I had forgotten that!! we didn't hav a manager at the time and surprisingly we got a manager about a week later luckily I don't live in oxford and so didn't have to travel to far home!

    I love that simple designs are coming back. Can't wait to see our new sponsorless shirt
    Aye. Bolton seem to have got their junior team to model the kit, though.

    So Wednesday have finally confirmed their new manager at half ten on a Tuesday night :lol: and it is... Carlos Carvalhal (source).

    No Mark Cooper in tow though which I guess could be a blessing. I'm quite concerned about his appointment tbh. Would also explain why we've signed a player from Braga on loan recently.

    The 3 coaches that he's brought with him seem to have decent records though. Welcome aboard to our first ever foreign manager

    What's he been doing / where has he been for the last 3 years?? Wiki says that his last coaching role was at Istanbul in 2012!?! Always strange seeing a foreign manager come in but wish you all the best for the season especially as my next door neighbor is a Wednesday fan!

    Ipswich will struggle without Mings next year, you'd assume. Both sides get a great deal, though. Bournemouth have probably overpaid ever so slightly, but he's definitely worthy of a bottom half PL side.

    So Chris Wood has joined Leeds - tidy goalscorer but don't expect him to be of any use in the build up.

    Yeah he hasn't had a managers job for the past 3 years! Although its not on wiki some other sources say he's been technical advisor at some club in the UAE/Qatar (or some like close to that... I forget) for a while.

    EDIT: Its the UAE https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Ahli_Dubai_F.C.

    I'm a Derby fan and he's one of my favourite ever footballers. Absolute belter of a left foot on him.

    The rumour is that our captain at the time (Jason Shackell) slept with Davies' missus, which led to both of them being sold. Not sure how true that is but an interesting tidbit, nonetheless.

    We're after Blades winger Jamie Murphy to do that job. Apparently Adkins is keen on getting Billy Sharp, could see a cash + player deal happening there

    Neil Lennon favourite for the Leicester job, which would effect Bolton no end you'd imagine.

    Why does every kit these days seem to be moving the badge further and further up - it's practically on the shoulders there...

    As for Lennon - no. If he weren't a former leicester player he wouldn't even be considered.

    We've signed a German, an Austrian, a Dane, a Frenchman and an Englishman so far. The Dane is an established international - Andreas Bjelland - with 21 caps.

    Who would you prefer, seeing as though Big Sam isn't a realistic option?

    Not a clue - with Big Sam having ruled out, leaving utter guff as the options, I'd rather go for someone currently unemployed as a cheap stopgap until we can find a good championship manager to get us back up in the 16/17 season, and Lennon is neither.
