Thread: Cardiff in for vaulks

  1. #21
    Can't fault that remark about Forde - no one is 100% are they - but credit due when a man gets stuff right. At the time though wasn't Forde lined up with Bradshaw because they had a thing going at Walsall (34 in 70). That would have made a good partnership as Forde delivered for Bradshaw there - but EVO's brother screwed it up - then disappeared? All when the boys were abroad in pre-season. But Barnsley got him - all a bit dubious at the time If memory serves.

    Peeps usually say X player will be better with a run of games.
    Forde has been in n out for the past 2 seasons. Give him 6-8 week In the team and watch him cream this league.
    said it 12 month ago,. Sitting midfield would suit him.
    Poss: Rarely gives the ball away,. Picks a decent pass. Strong tackler. Tracks back well
    Neg: Not rapid enough for the wing, 50/50 with the crosses mainly because he doesn't beat his man

    Clayton old bean, you state Forde is a strong tackler but doesnít beat his man.....

    Are you saying heís bad at taking a man on and good at stopping a team progressing as the two sound the same?

    I'm not sure brin. Am I saying that.
    I always wondered why the yanky footy players use offence/defense

    Since he became Welsh around a year ago, he’s probably going to Cardiff.

    Good luck to the lad.

    We’ve got combination wide players but the same problems, not being fast enough nor tricky enough to get a cross in. When they do the accuracy is poor.

    As for tackling back? None of them are any good at that either.

    Is that what I'm saying? Where did I state we should have spent £1m to stay up? All I'm saying is we would have been able to command higher fees for our players as a championship side. We might even have been in a position to hold on to them.
    It's a shame we were relegated, but we were, and IMO spending the £1m which you bizarrely concluded I was alluding to, wouldn't have made a lot of difference to our final league position.

    We didnít just have a problem with quality we also had a problem with quantity. It was quite clear that in the last dozen games the players were knackered and we didnít have enough players to cover.

    Money spent on making the squad bigger might have saved us, so signings might not have had to be big money

    Stick to the topic. What’s all the talk about wingers/wide players staying or going or how good/bad they are got to do with Vaulks going to Cardiff?

    ... and if the Derby management /recruitment team move to Chelsea we should ask Frankie for £50 million.... at least!

    The more clubs interested the better.I think we say he wont be here next season that fines hes done well and deserves a better shot in a bigger club . If we can spark a bidding war its more cash for us the get more players in .Still been optimistic that TS will give Warne a bit of a war chest to get us up again.

    Yep think he is replaceable in League 1 and a bidding war would suit us because it would mean we wouldn't be forced to sell him on the cheap.

    Yes, he could go to the Blades, not get a game and come back to us on loan.

    Don't think he's anywhere near prem standard.
    Strange if they do want him

    Theyíll have to be movement soon on our affected players as teams set about pre season training in a few weeks.

    Expect it all to happen next week.

    apparently we have short listed charlton goalkeeper but if they get promoted it's less likely to happen
