The more i see of fans saying we are average, the better.  I would rather fly under the radar, especially as my biggest fear is us ripping up league 1 for the first half and then losing Wellens to a Championship club midway through the season..  it's not like that has happened to us before is it?
Absolutely, I would love to fly just inder the radar, trouble is that withthe EFL Show with Sam Parkin and Colin Murray who constantly praises Wellens and Town that will be difficult this season.

Agree.  I do get the feeling though that not too many teams fans above lge 2 actually realise what a good job that Wellens has been doing with us, mainly because if you are not in lge 2 you don't tend to take too much notice of it.  I personally would like it to stay that way for as long as possible.

tbh if the danger is other clubs noticing what a good job Wellens is doing and pinching him, they're not relying on the EFL show for their scouting/recruitment

I don’t know. According to Power he had to fend off a couple of clubs who were after his services.

As long as he thinks we’re competitive, he’ll stay. Big season, this. Just about any club could fluke it.

Oh I'm sure he has. Just don't thnk it was a Saturday night highlights show on Quest that triggered that interest, I suspect the clubs might be doing their own monitoring

My Quote was not so much about Wellens being stolen by other teams more so that fans of other clubs think we are a pushover on their forums. I should have pointed that out as it was an all encompassing post, but I meant fans not so much Wellens being knicked away from us.

As you have bought up cakes, I am not sure where all the worries about Pitman being Lardy came from, he seems reasonably mobile.

However, he has the hairiest arms I think I have ever seen on a player, bet he has got a proper rug on his back as well!

Lovely nonchalant finish though.

Genoa I think he fitted in really well and played a decent game, he has more pace than he looks at times and some of his touches were sublime, he seems more of a bully and better in the air than Doyle.

I would like to see him in a front 2 with Tyler alongside of him but there is no player he could actually drop to accomodate him as both wingers and Payne made things happen in our attack.

I salute your work sir!  Clap

The funny thing when he scored is that when the ball broke to the R/H side of the box and the camera panned forward we had three midfielders breaking into the box ahead of our striker, yet he was still in the right place to score which I think shows his class and experience!

He's up there challenging Tierney the ref for the "Gorilla Arms" award isn't he?

And presumably your question was, "what is your favourite cheese?"🤔

Whenever Jeff Stelling goes on about our Smiths he always lists a 'Sam Smith', but we don't actually have anyone by that name do we?

yeah, think he was a youth team keeper last season who made the bench in a checkatrade game or two. Not sure if he's still about.
