  1. I went yesterday and even with free tickets, it was a waste of time. Rooney is over at this level, full stop, but I can't help thinking this is an England thing. I remember Gerrard spent most of his time at Wembley hanging around the centre circle, rather than supporting the front line, and Rooney in the middle did the same thing. But at least Gerrard was a midfielder. Rooney announcing his international retirement 2 years hence was well played. He knows the team will eventually collapse, and therefore as soon as he is dropped and England lose, the manager cops all the shit for not playing him, due to our press forgetting anything they wrote the day before. But my mates 2 young lad's enjoyed their day, and maybe they will enjoy a better England future than is currently being doled out.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer bloke. Remember that documentary about agents and bungs years ago with BFS centre stage (and his son ?) Also I remember Ravel Morrison (another tool)n on twitter banging on about how BFS was on his case every day to move agent to his preferred one like the rest of the WHU team he brought in, and how it was affecting him in training. Looks like he put his big square snout into the trough once too often . Shame.

    My seat is in a good spot (even though it's in band 3 of 5), and I don't have any of the issues with people standing etc, so I have a different experience from most I think. There are a lot of rose tinted spectacles going on as well. UP used to have an amazing atmosphere about 3 or 4 times a season since the seats went in, in the 90's, except last year. so the fact people are saying it's flat is interesting. You were quite a way back and I think I would have a different opinion back there. It's a big old place and not built for football by design, but people will move around for the first year or so and it will find its natural noisy areas and quieter areas, the same as every other ground. I'm by far an apologist for the new place and would have preferred to do what Spurs are doing, but on a personal level, my seat is OK, my travel is amazing (10 minutes from Kent), and things will get better. But as they have been saying on the Stop Hammer Time Podcast for ages, the only way to get an atmosphere going will require an expansive, attacking and exciting brand of football. And as you have experienced, thats not happening at the moment. And the Hot dogs are amazing !!

    But it wouldn't be WHU without unleashing expectation to be followed up by some sort of implosion of spectacular proportions. I thought we were past all this. You would think I would learn after 30 odd years ! Agree with your Westley point, either he is good enough or not, there is no middle ground when you do a job thousands would kill for. At 22 I would say no. Also what's happened to Hendrie, a left back bought as one for the future 2 years ago, currently on loan to Blackburn. Another one who needs to play for us or leave.

    @Seanfl9 The way things are going at the moment you can have mine for a fiver. Joking aside, I imagine no problem at all but they will be like PSD's and miles away from the pitch Anyway todays blog is up for the latest steaming turd served up at Corp HQ. At least whichever bellend it was was slagging WHU for no reason in the main football thread will be happy. @PopeSmokesDope You deserved the win but it wasn't a classic.

    Fair summation. Personally I would drop Adrian for a few games as well.

    To be fair we are always one crazy season from relegation . 42points ? Down. Half the England team? Down.

    Reason ?

    Pure class turns to pure shit as WHU get battered by Watford. Blogs up.

    I was on a plane back from Dublin tonight so no game or blog for me, but team lineup suggests Slaven didn't fancy it again this season. No excuses though, if we are to progress as a club we must win games like this at a canter. I see Zaza has agreed a deal. I imagine he may be rethinking that now, and don't surprised to see the Payet on the move bandwagon start up again as well.

    Dull game, 3 points, blogs up.

    With Ginge coming back soon and Nords we are OK for CB's but full backs should be a priority. Anyway my seat is great and the atmosphere was way better than I expected. Onwards and upwards. Blog tomorrow, photos on Twitter already .
