Yep Robins has gone. Wilson who city sold for £2.25 mil scored 2 and missed a pen for his hatrick today v Hudds. We got ripped off on that considering they assambogla(sp?) Went to forest from Peterborough for £6 mil.

Moussa sat on the bench for Charlton today too. Meaning from last season we are missing Clarke, Wilson, Moussa, Baker or over 60/70 goals. Plus our GK sat on the bench in the champ.

Still managed to score two yesterday though, got a new fans fave in Reda Johnson, scored two and gave away a penalty from CB. Going to be long season with a thread bare squad.

Yeah, not a bad summation but I reckon there are enough teams that are on a par with us (or below) to give us a better opportunity at survival. I reckon Austin will be sufficiently underestimated by Premiership opposition to enable him to bag goals which might get us points in games that in the past we wouldn't have been competitive in. Need key players to stay fit though - money or not there's not enough depth in the squad for us to go 2-3 months without the big game players.

QPR will be fine this year I reckon, finally started signing good signings rather than dross. Hope Rio does well but I can't help but think he is shot.

Fucking hell. Coventry v Cardiff on ss1. I have never ever seen a ground that empty in my life. Must be about fifty people there, and they are taffys. Jawdropping!

Watch this 17 year old James Maddison, looks 12 but he is a premiership footballer in the future.

Coventry have signed Simeon Jackson today which I am sure is a good signing, can remember him being very good for Norwich in the championship. Signed on a one year deal which obviously means he scored 20 goals and leaves for nowt next summer.

Any canaries on here?

Norwich fan here. Simeon was good for us, havnt really followed his career since he left though. Scored some vital goals for us in our promotion year and had a few good games in the Prem. Will always put a shift in and is a confident lad, first touch lets him down sometimes but will be a very good league one player. Surprised no one took a chance on him in the champ but like again I havnt seen him play in a few years no.

He played a few games after leaving Germany for Millwall at the back end of last year. Gone a few seasons without regular games/goals but he will get them here I am sure.

Cheers for the info

Just coming away from Elland Road, I know there's a few Brighton heads on here.
Really think Brighton will be a force again this season, play some excellent football and just made us look like mugs this evening.
I don't know his name but number 22 was brilliant. Ran the game, nothing too spectacular but just nice basic passes, picking us apart.
