Any news of Flanagan getting a new contract? Is it even being discussed?

Hope he gets one, he worked hard last year and showed he had the quality to be in the first team. That goal against Spurs is still a highlight from last season for me.


2.) 12 Feb 2015 10:25:51
One wonder goal and he get's a new contract ? Rather cash in on him and bring another youngster through.


3.) 12 Feb 2015 10:32:07
I think it would be wise to see how he does when he returns from injury.

A full season out is a long time especially at his age.


4.) 12 Feb 2015 13:34:34
Actually It wasn't simply one wonder goal, he played brilliantly when he came in, made Johnson look more of a mug than he actually is, showed that he has what it takes at the top level as he was consistant, solid and worked hard, the goal against spurs was the icing on the cake, as was his reaction.


5.) 12 Feb 2015 17:29:04
Agree Mr D


6.) 13 Feb 2015 07:45:01
He was our only defender last year that actually looked like he had any intention of defending and made opposition players think twice about running at him. He was the best positioned, most disciplined, most energetic and most effective defensive player we had last year. And that was playing on the wrong side.


7.) 13 Feb 2015 20:29:52
If carra was still about he would have learned so much. I remember one of his first games seeing carra talking him through the game, where to be and where to keep the attackers. Shame.


8.) 13 Feb 2015 22:20:00
He played brilliantly last season, but still think it would be wise to see how he recovers after being out for a season.


9.) 14 Feb 2015 12:48:58
I have mentioned this in the past, no the likelyhood is he won't be offered a new contract, he will be given a chance to prove himself in the next couple of months before the decision is made, read my last comment to find out why. Also BR thinks wisdom is a better option as he can fit into the three at the back aswel as a full back


10.) 14 Feb 2015 22:58:50
I think his time is up. Another Martin Kelly Saga.

If we get into the CL what pot are we likely to be in? Assuming it's 4 but worth checking!

hjikle

1.) 05 Apr 2017 09:48:15
4th will be qualification stages.


2.) 05 Apr 2017 09:49:01
It depends obviously on what other teams get in but I would assume we have a chance of pot 3 at the least? I'm sure we still have decent points from el final as I think the points are from the last 2 or 3 years? Im sure someone can correct me there but I'd still guess we could get in pot 3.


3.) 05 Apr 2017 11:03:08
Stop counting chickens! Insigne can't keep up.


4.) 05 Apr 2017 12:46:16
Dont worry Jezza I said if!


5.) 05 Apr 2017 13:35:03
How about we win the game tonight first before talking about such things.


6.) 05 Apr 2017 14:26:24
ha, that's a bit like when the great Bill Shankly said, let's put the ball in the back of their net, and talk about it later, brilliant .

For the Belgium based reds - anyone know of anywhere that I might be able to watch the game in Brussels on Monday? Preferably in/ near the European Quarter?

Freddy Adu just failed to get a contract with Portland

I think it's time the owners opened their chequebook tbh. My footy manager 05 said that he'd make Pele look like Jovanovic by now!

hjikle

1.) 08 Feb 2017 19:23:24
I reckon we get him in and put him up front with Nemeth!


2.) 08 Feb 2017 22:59:27
I'm surprised no-one has suggested Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. If we could buy a centre back with that name on the back of shirt we would be unbeatable! There is even a Dutch player -meervoudigepersoonlijkheidsstoornis - however tghis one is more suited to manchester united as it translates to 'mental peronality disorder'.

Hi Eds

Bit of a general football question if I may. A local lower league club I used to work for has just started letting a late 30's ex player train with them again. This ex player is a cult name most people would recognise here but since his career ended (slightly prematurely) he's been on a personal downhill slide; substance abuse, wife moved out etc. It was very unexpected for those of us who knew him back in the day (which in fairness was a while ago now) when he was always the nicest, most normal, down to earth guy at the club.

I know those sorts of issues are a risk for retiring athletes who lived for their sport and suddenly are without any of the direction or rush that it brings. But are football clubs in general (and I'm sure there are extreme cases at both ends of the spectrum) making proactive steps to help players settle into retirement from the sport and transition away from that life? Or do they exist in a space where as soon as your contract is over unless you have another way to be useful, they don't want to hear your name again?

Cheers

{Ed002's Note - Players are transient and you spend the last part of their career at a lower league club - it cannot be expected that such a club eases a player in to retirement. Players get a lot of support nowadays and the PFA provides help.}


1.) 30 Jan 2017 15:45:57
PFA have help there but you have to go looking for it, they do not go out of their way to promote or help this with ex players. in some cases it could be at a point where the demons are already in the system and you have to be at rock bottom before the system steps into help.


2.) 30 Jan 2017 20:42:25
Without sounding heartless but why should footballers get this help? Plenty of people have stressful jobs and get no help, nurses, soldiers, teachers etc.


3.) 31 Jan 2017 08:52:39
There needs to be more sympathy and awareness of mental health issues in all walks of life.


4.) 31 Jan 2017 12:01:46
Thanks Ed002. More of a curiosity than an expectation.

Mikey - all of those people have help so I don't know what you're on about. There are trade unions, charities, membership organisations and government funds that literally exist for the sole reason of helping those people. Don't make the mistake of thinking that every footballer is rich and can afford all the help they need - a very small percent actually end up 'rich' - most probably earn a better than average wage for most of their career, but when their career is 15-20 years max and finish it with little education to move onto something else, that 'better than average' wage needs to cover them for a very long time. I had a drink with a player for this club at their retirement party, he graduated from the spurs academy but spent almost his whole career in League 1 and the Championship. He told me he never earned more than £75k/ y and most of the time it was closer to £40k/ y. Sounds like good money but as he pointed out, he might never earn more than minimum wage in his life (being a more or less unknown footballer with a O-level in PE doesn't exactly quality you for many jobs) means he'll probably earn significantly less over his career than the average person on the street will.

99 - it's good to hear that the PFA does have a recognised function in that.

As an aside from the misery of the last week, it was great to see Conner Coady yesterday. He has obviously come on leaps and bounds as a player and it was great to see one of our youth players really enjoying their football - good for the lad!

hjikle

1.) 29 Jan 2017 19:28:45
Agreed. Really hard working lad who deserves success. Unlike Sinclair who looked like a lazy, petulant child today against Milwall. Making it pro is 5% inspiration and 95% perspiration! Coady is a good lad.

You could buy 2 cbs that would revolutionise our whole squad for £50m.

I'd love either of those players, excellent and dangerous goalscoring wingers with a good cross on them and lightning speed. Would also help aleviate some of our CM troubles by allowing Coutinho to drop back and act as playmaker in the middle.

Love comments like Pips. Here is a detailed understanding of what is wrong with sturridge and why it keeps happening, as well as why it keeps happening and what Sturridge does about it. But nah, here's a fan whose ready his face for 5 minutes he has been on screen in the past 6 months with his view cause that has equal weight.

The 'papers' and you clearly haven't seen Modric or Real play for some time. He hasn't played as an attacking midfielder or a winger, the two areas Coutinho plays, since 2010. If Real want him, he'd be replacing James Rodriguez, Bale or Isco - not Modric.

Probably because the facts speak for themselves Norman - our defense with him shipped fewer goals than our defense without him. Whatever people read into the shape of his body or his facial expressions he carried the ball further and more often than any other CB in recent history, he successfully passed it long and short more and better, he successfully tackled more, he successfully intercepted more and he won more high balls than any other CB we've had for years. Whatever he 'looked' like, we were a more capable and successful team with him in the field. And right now, another team has gone from shipping goal after goal to 3 clean sheets in a row when his addition is the only change.

I was phil yes, because otherwise people are being even more silly making massive statements about a player based on his one season in Germany.

He'd have no chance of recovering if he was someone who relied on pace. But he doesn't - he's intelligent, hard working and has a good touch. None of those should be affected by his injuries long term.

Overall qualities dwarf Can and Hendo - are you having a laugh? Have you even watched him play? Or let me guess, you're an avid follower of the Austrian League and knew all about his quality since he signed for Salzburg?

hjikle

{Ed001's Note - Salzburg? He plays for Leipzig in Germany, the Bundesliga....}

Markovic might or might not be better, but I would definitely give him a chance before making an expensive utility signing.

2013. First bonus I ever got at work. A season ticket holder I know went travelling and let me buy tickets for two games together for my dad and I, paid for everything (cleaned out the bonus and then some but was a dream come true) . First was West Ham, second was Cardiff. Arrived 3 hours early, wondered around until the doors opened and then took our seats in an empty stadium and watched it fill. What a day.

{Ed025's Note - sounds good mate..
