Almost there then! Birmingham away and it'll be very tough, to be honest if someone offered me a scrappy 1-1 right now



good work, good result that.

Decent result from us today. Posh passed the ball around nicely in the first half, but no match for our defence. Good to see new captain Wes Morgan scoring a goal, and Jamie Vardy looked lively on his debut.
Enjoyed the few pints before the game in the sunshine,the walk down with the fans, the blind optimism and the typical grumbles. Footballs back and I'm reconverted again.
Another 3 points on Tuesday needed

I'm quite pleased really, would have taken it at the start of the day. Obviously it's a bit gutting because we took the lead and conceded the last-minute equaliser but can't have too many complaints against a strong, promotion-chasing team in their own backyard. By all accounts, we performed very well and were marginally the better side in a tight, as expected, game. We got a result a lot didn't expect us to get and reminded quite a few in this league that actually "little old Charlton a) aren't so little and b) have form in this tier and the top flight over the past 10-15 seasons that outweighs most in this league.

There were a few reality checks today that's for sure. Bolton and Wolves both got one about life back in the second tier, Wednesday definitely got one despite a good response to earn a point and Palace got tucked up nicely in their own backyard which I enjoyed very much (is it too early for a number one in south london?).

Leicester look multi-talented and with real strength in depth jonson, I'll be surprised if you're not in the top two come May.

From who? You? No one mentioned it other than you, it's hardly fucking ground breaking news is it. Fuck me, Ive heard more from fans of other clubs today about this signing than I have from Owls fans. Fucks sake.

I don't know many other Wolves fans who think we are going up this year. The more optimistic I know reckon we can have a good tilt at the playoffs. Between having a manager new to the English game, still being stuck with the 'defence' that Mick built, and our more creative players deciding that they are too good for the division they helped take the club into most Wolves fans fully expect this season to be a bit of a grind. With any luck Fletch and Jarvo (as well as useless cunts like Berra) will fuck off for loads of cash and Solbakken can start building a team that knows how to play footy again.

Add another two fucks and that gets you all the way up to five, a nice round five, come on now, you must be able to think up something. Believe me, I've heard more from Wednesday fans than I have from anyone else, I've got seven e-mails in my inbox to back that up, three are unopened but I know exactly what they are. One even has a picture of Messi with a Wednesday shirt, now I mean some of you're lot are arrogant and completely deluded, but even I know they're taking the piss there.

Is Rodri going to back in a hatrick tomorrow night against Birmingham then? And I say that genuinely. I know fuck all about the guy apart from being told and seeing repeatedly that he's made the move from Spain's biggest club to England's biggest club (yes that last bit there was intended to be sarcasm....).

What a performance!

We thoroughly deserved that, we completely outclassed Leicester in the first half and should have been out of sight by half-time! We dominated possession, passed the ball neatly, held our lines well and restricted the Foxes to flashing crosses and bursts from Drinkwater that were quickly stomped out by our fantastic central defence partnership of Leon Cort and Michael Morrison. Well done to City for fighting back in the second half (fuck knows why they don't start Andy King, he made all the difference!!), I expected it to be honest, they're a very good team and Nigel Pearson was never going to let them roll over and die but we saw the game out in determined fashion and didn't give them an inch late on and we could have had a third and fourth ourselves! Couldn't have asked for a better start to the season, third in the table after two games and I was happy to take just two points from these opening three fixtures looking at them on paper so I'm over the moon, I mean if we play like that seven times out of ten this season then I'll be really intrigued to see where we end up!

And jonson, this one, is just for you my friend....



He was fucking brilliant tonight, we're all dreaming of a team of Kermorgants!!!

EDIT: What a diving little prick Jermaine Beckford is as well. No wonder Pearson took him off, he fell over every time a strong breeze drifted his way. He was lazy too and in the end when he went down inexplicably for the fourth time and rolled around like a cockroach with it's legs cut off, even the Leicester players didn't bother to kick the ball out of play, I think by that point even they were sick of his antics too.

Yeah, well, played, thanks for the picture
After having a bad day, during my worst week of work ever, I came home, stuck the radio on and we were 1 down. Within minutes, you scored and the Leicester commentator said "and yes Leicester fans, I really don't need to tell you who scored that!" I don't normally get angry (not about football) but "fucking frog!" was shouted at the radio, and the plug was pulled from the wall. I honestly didn't know the end score until this morning
All I knew was we played shit in the first half and better in the second.
Well done though, he says through gritted teeth.

And finally as for Kermongant, he might be a fine player (he showed some glimpses at Leiecster) and he probably had some right shit off the Leicester fans, but seriously, after this:-

he should still be shamed of himself and offer an apology. But he wont because he's French

Not sure why I'm bothering. But yea, I'll make sure there are five 'fuck's' in this one. That 'fuck' doesn't count. Neither does that one.

The point was Goodfella, which you missed by a fucking mile (one), was that why would you even bring up the signing of Rodri if you were already fucking (two) fed up of it? No one in this forum had mentioned it, other than you, and then you had a dig to suggest it was all we were going to fucking (three) hear about, which simply isn't the case. I've said it before, I'll take a punt that I know far more Owls fans than you, the ne's you know sound like the kind of cunts that spend all day on fucking (four) 'Owlsmad' or other websites picking over crowd stats and other such shite. All football clubs have those kinda fans, and they're pretty much all are pricks. All I've had all day is Blades fans moaning on Facebook about how they will never hear the end of the Rodri signing... and then you moaning about it here. If you don't wanna hear about it, don't fucking (five) mention it and maybe you won't have to.

As for his hat - trick? I was amazed he played actually, but he was superb and did bag a goal during his hour on the pitch. In my opinion the best Owls player on the pitch was JJ, he was brilliant and caused all kinds of problems. Kirkland had a good game too. Going forward and on the wings, we're looking good. I'd like a bit more depth at the back though. As for the Owls overall, we haven't looked that good in years, the first half was particularly good and Birmingham never looked in it. They were better in the second half with Zigic, but the scoreline, in all honesty, flattered them. Early days, but I'm happy with what I've seen and if we continue like this, we'll have no problem staying up. Having said that, I've seen Owls teams unfold spctacularly, so I won't be getting too excited just yet.

Suprising result against Wolves, back to normal against Blackpool.

Midfield is in rough shape at the moment, Rodolph Austin is a beast and was fantastic against Wolves but we have zero creativity in the middle of the park to compliment his seek and destroy ability, I would love it if we could get Henri Lansbury in on loan or someone similar, we need a passer otherwise we will struggle. A couple of good wingers are needed too, we've gone from Maxi Gradel and Robert Snodgrass to Aidy White and Luke Varney - Not a good trade-off. The defense is looking solid though (despite defeat) which is encouraging, we would have been thumped with Graysons defence and I expect Blackpool to be challenging for the title so I'm not too disappointed with the result, t'is early days yet.

If we finish above the rest of you cunts, I'll be happy.

Unsurprising result against Leeds, bucked the trend against Barnsley Although every minute of it has been a misery, it still shocked me that the 3-1 against the Tykes was wolves first win at Molineux this year Great to see SEB get on the scoresheet though, he's excellent at this level.

So it looks like they are pretty much done deals at last. Fletcher to Sunderland for 12m, and Jarvis to the Hammers for 7m (with the fees potentially rising to 14m and 10.75m respectively). If that's true, and if it's true that the Fletch sale has a sell-on clause, then that's some hard bargaining by Wolves. A decent wedge for 2 want-away players, neither of whom are irreplaceable. Remains to be seen if Solbakken has that money earmarked for any signings, but I hope so

Edit: I bet you couldn't fucking wait to post the above, could you?


Damn right I couldn't wait! I even took that picture myself just for you!! (no, I didn't really. It's from the BBC website....)

Kermit has been talking after the game about how much confidence he's regained at Charlton and playing and living in London, and almost how much he respects Powelly as a gaffer. I think he's going to have another really good season, he's a menace in the air and is a handful for any centre-back in the box, he's got a fine free kick as well, he pushes Jackson every time as to who is going to take them and it's great to have two players who can deliver set-pieces of real quality around the box. I know you speak highly of him mate but I didn't realise just how well-loved he was at Leicester until Tuesday night and all you're fans gave him a standing ovation at the end of the game.

You were better in the second half but I disagree with Pearson, you didn't "create enough chances to win the game." I think he's being generous there, I expected you to come out second half and get stuck in, especially with the quality of depth you have in your squad (three or four on your bench on Tuesday night would have made the starting line-up in ten or so of the other championship teams playing that evening) and we are suckers for giving away that early goal when we've built ourselves a lead. But a lot of the chances were flashing shots across the face of goal and Hamer only had to make one really decent save. Leon Cort had a header for us from six yards out that if it had gone six inches either side of Schmeichal was a goal and Stephens and Kermorgant had two chances to kill it off each in the final twenty.

Hull at home on Saturday. Another tough game, be looking for a similar performance hopefully backed again by a very vocal home crowd and probably be a bigger attendance being a weekend game. It's followed by Forest away and then that set of wankers from Croydon at home on a Friday night game, live on Sky. I notice they're not singing Number One in South London anymore. Most of their fans I know as well have already resigned themselves to relegation and are launching vicious attacks on their owners despite the fact the three guys who took over saved that football club from extinction with every last penny they've had and have fought desperately to keep it stable ever since, these things don't happen overnight, especially when the money doesn't come from the Middle East and they're still paying off debts even now. Mind you that's what happens when you let a prick like Simon Jordan take charge of both your football club and ground.

We've signed Ricardo Fueller as well now, he was introduced to the crowd at half-time on Tuesday. Not to sure what to make of it, he was a decent striker in his day and is quite experienced but has become a bit of a journeyman. Still Powelly has done wonders with quite a few since arriving at the club and Fueller will have to work to earn his place so we'll see how it goes. I'd love to know where Danny Haynes is, no sign of an injury, not expected to leave but not in the first two squads. Mind you from the brief appearances I've seen of young Michael Smith and Jordan Cook, I'm not that worried and now with Fueller added that's going to take our first-team striker count to six.

Where is Gradel these days? Varney is fucking terrible, he really lacks confidence as well so if he doesn't get a couple of goals within the first month or so expect him to really drop off and start firing the ball aimlessly every time it careers into his path, he's got no technique or patience in front of goal, he's quick but goes nowhere and got a barracking from some of our supporters, he was pretty much forced out of the club.

No chance of finishing above us! I'm actually going to the game at Elland Road in a few months with a Leeds-supporting mate (in the away end obviously!).

I wasn't directly referring to this forum, I think that was pretty obvious. I'm sure you do know more Wednesday fans than me, being one yourself, but I'm not sure what point this proves. I've never been on Owlsmad in my life, I'd rather swim through pig-shit to be perfectly honest. The whole thing, which I think you missed here, was a dig at hearing all summer from every Wednesday signing (along with Mandaric and Jones) about what "a massive football club" they are. It's like a pre-prepared statement every time and it's gone beyond cheesy now, it's pretty much a cliche and I was making the reference to you signing a player from an equally "massive" football club. Mind you, all honesty, you have had a good start to the season, we both have but like you I won't be getting overexcited at all yet, much like I haven't been anyway. There is a long, long way to go and you can't take 'league tables' seriously at this point in the season anyway.

We'll take a point, a rain-soaked game. which saw thunder and lightening as well, yesterday in which both goalkeepers were apparently at their very best, it's slightly disappointing to not pick up all three points as it sounds like we had the better chances but there you go. If someone had offered me five points from these tough three opening games a fortnight ago I'd have snapped their arm off. It doesn't get any easier for us either as we travel to Forest next weekend, another promotion contender.

It was really decent of Steve Bruce to spend most of his post-match press conference complimenting us yesterday, he's the third manager in a row to do so now and it says a lot about us back in this league, we're competing better than even we'd hoped and we're making the Valley a bit of a fortress already, we keep playing like this and it's going to be a very entertaining season.

Another good result and performance at Hillsborough last night. OK, it's not Championship football, but as it's more a general observation of The Owls, I'll post my thoughts here.

I honestly expected Fulham to control the game and nick it 0-1, but they never really looked like they could get going. The Owls closed them down brilliantly, forced them back during their periods of possision and seemed to be forcing them to play long balls down the centre - I can't imagine that was ever Fulham's original tactics - they never really got into it. On the ball we passed it well, attacked well on the wings, put their goal under pressure, forced corners and generally looked like the better team all over. Antonio was awesome last night and really caused them headaches and Rodri was great during his 20 minutes or so, and really looks to enjoy getting stuck in to the tackle, something I was very surprised at during his debut against Brum. There really is a good buzz around Hillsborough at the moment and although I'm sure Jones' unbeaten run will end sooner rather than later, it's really given the place a boost in confidence. Will be interested to see who, if anyone, we bring in before the end of the TD, I'm certainly expecting a couple after we let Amedo return to Portugal and Prutton go on loan. I'd like to see another really good defender to be honest, that's where we look weakest at the moment and two solid defenders to give us a bit more depth would be great. All in all, I couldn't be happier with the start to the season, Derby, Brum and MIllwall we're all difficult games and to take the points we have, in the way we have, I'm impressed. Sadly, the inevitable come down will likely start over the next few weeks. I'll enjoy the buzz while it lasts.

So now Nenad Milijas has had his contract cancelled by mutual consent, it's proving to be a busy summer at Molineux. Stale is clearly attempting to build his own team sooner rather than later, which I think is a good idea since so many of the players lacked heart last season. Jarvis, Kightly and Fletcher obviously gone as well, with the slim possibility of Doyle leaving before the end of business tomorrow. The new signings are interesting though, and give me some cautious optimism despite the fact I know little about most of them. Seven signings so far: Sigurdarson, Boukari, Doumbia, Peszko, Margreitter, Nouble (you might know more about him than me Goodfella!) and Bako. Bako in particular seems an exciting player - fast, strong, skillful and powerful.

Certainly Stale is going about things very differently to Mick, mining Europe (and 1 Ligue in particular) rather than Britiain and Ireland, so much that the team is being called the League Of Nations . He also seems to be getting some form out of Roger Johnson, which is basically like a new signing by itself after the shocker he had last season Hopefully the new lads will be able to settle in and start gelling quickly, but even if they need a bit of time I won't be on the managers back about it (which probably can't be said for all Wolves fans).

Yeah we had him on loan last season, don't rate him at all to be honest. Lacked any real pace and looked like a headless chicken more often than not, think he managed a solitary goal in a cup game, I can't see him doing much at championship level but you never know with players like Nouble, if they find the right club and settle in (like Kermorgant did with us) then you never know what you might end up with. He's been very much forgotten at the Valley though, don't even think anyone realised when his loan expired!

Powelly has confirmed one of the two players rumoured are subject of a bid from a Premiership club. Hopefully it's Stephens, not Solly! We can afford to lose Stephens especially if Villa are silly enough to give us big money for him then more fool them, he's vulnerable on the ball in the centre of the park and I'll be surprised if he excels in the premiership, I spoke to two Villa fans today and neither of them know who he is. I'm not having West Ham thieve another young talent of us on the final day of the transfer window because they can't produce their own any more, not without us getting around 5 million for him!

Anyone see the stupid price that Blackburn are paying Huddersfield for Jordan Rhodes? 8 million!? Well Venky's are more stupid than I gave them credit for. A player who has yet to actually score a goal at championship level, 8 million!? Huddersfield will be laughing all the way to the bank!

Pearson out!!!
I'm not a fan of getting rid of managers early, but lose tomorrow against Blackpool (and Ian fucking Holloway) and you might as well get rid now.
2 shit results in the league (although Pearson is saying we should have won both of them - not sure Goodfella would agree with that ) and an embarassing loss to Burton Albion in the cup, it's been a dismal start.
Win tomorrow and he's a hero, lose and he gets the chop, and I won't be that sorry to be perfectly honest.

Yeah I saw his post-match interview. He was obviously in the pub for the first-half and the last 15 minutes or so but there we go, no offence, but you often find managers who are in the proverbial shit claiming they should have won this, they should have had that etc. etc. Winning is quite simple in essence, it's about taking you're chances and making sure the other team doesn't. From the highlights I saw Leicester were far better against Blackburn than they were against us, they certainly created more chances anyway, but they were again wasteful with the ones they had.

If he does get the chop, you best not come knocking!!

5-3! What a game

I recommend you watch for our third goal which was scored by a player called John Cofie. One of the best goals I have seen in a long time.

Shite today and thoroughly deserved the defeat, sounds like we played against Forest in the first half the way Leicester did against us a few weeks back!

We should not be playing like that this early in the season and it's very disappointing after two good performances and it's brought us down to earth with a nasty bump quickly, we need to learn again ahead of the derby against Palace in a few weeks time.

A very satisfying win, a good performance and funny to see a distraught Ian Holloway on the sidelines.
To be truthful, we had a big debate in the boozer beforehand. I don't bear grudges, and can happily wish Ian Holloway well and good luck to him at Blackpool. He took us into a division no-one else had ever taken us (the old 3rd Division) but really was it his fault? Well he fucked up the last game at Stoke, holding out for a draw and hoping other results went for us, but ultimately we had been in freefall for 3 seasons, and the drop to the lower division helped is get back on track.
So, Ian Holoway, despite sitting about 10 yards in front of me, was given an easy ride. At first.
Until he started shouting, screaming, kicking things, trying to antagonise the Leicster bench, and sending ex-Leicester player Steve "fuck me he's a fat bastard now" Thompson over to pick a fight with Nigel Pearson, which he was ever going to win.
"AAAAAAH" we shouted at the end as Holloway punched the wall and refused to shake hands with Pearson, storming off down the tunnel like a pea-headed, rent-a-quote apple cruncher, moaning about the crowd reaction forcing the referee into giving a penalty (no shit Sherlock)
So to sum up, Pearson is now great, up the Foxes!

Becchio is on fire, as is Ross. If we had a playmaker we'd be looking good. Peltier got caught out of position a couple of times, Blackburns goals were soft. Peltier wasn't going to be getting help from Diouf so you'd think he'd hold back on the forward runs a little...Oh well, we fought back from 2-0 down so I guess it's a decent point.

Can't believe Blackburn spunked 8m of Rhodes, I honestly had no idea he was on the pitch.

A thorough spanking off Cardiff yesterday, though they were helped a fair bit the the now-typical calamitous individual errors. Some positives to take from the match, Sako is looking like a real baller at this level and the midfield play was strong at times. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we just need to sort out the defending

Having watched the highlights, whilst we still played terribly on Saturday and Hamer especially has no excuse for the first goal (fuck knows what he was up too, looked more like something that belongs on the gym landing mats at the Olympics if you ask me!!), the refereeing was disgraceful! It was never a free kick in a million years for the first goal and Jackson was just shoved off the ball in the build-up to the second, you can guarantee if things had been the other way around we wouldn't have had a sniff! Big-club home bias again, don't know so much about our penalty shout at the end although you can also bet you're bottom dollar had it been up the other end it would have been given and Forest would have won 3-0. I thought Powell did very well to keep himself calm and disciplined in the post-match interview.

We're going to get robbed a few times like that this season I reckon when we go up and play at these clubs so I guess we'd better get used to it....

I've read that Charlton are possibly getting Frimpong on loan this season. Is this true? (if so, can the Championship handle all that DENCH?)

Yeah that rumour is starting to circulate amongst our fans here. You should definitely consider sending him to the Valley, remember, we made Alex Song the player he is now!

Frimmy's physique and playing style scream 'Barcelona DNA', surely.

Charlton is probably my favourite non-Arsenal London club* so I would be pleased to see him go there, particularly since Diaby (I've jinxed it now) and Wilshere will probably be minimising his first-team opportunities this season.

To be honest I haven't seen too much of him play, am I right in saying he can play in both defence and midfield though, because we could use someone like that?

We treat all our loaned-in players very well, especially since Powelly came to the club, and at this level you have to accept sometimes the only way to bolster you're squad is to bring in players on loan. I'm glad we didn't extend the loans of Russell, N'Guessan and Cook beyond the end of last season but I'd be happy to see a player of Frimpong's rumoured quality brought in, especially after the success Song was when he signed on loan.

I fell out with several Charlton supporters over Jenkinson. The abuse he got, especially on his facebook page, was horrendous. He received some threats as well which was despicable and I hope the club did act upon in the end. I couldn't blame him one bit, he was an excellent young player with bags of talent and potential who worked his socks off in our academy, earned his chance at first-team level, grabbed it with both hands, performed very well in a struggling team for 12 games and then got the offer of a lifetime to join a premier league club playing both European football and with a serious chance of winning trophies (well, y'know what I mean....), not to mention the club he's supported since a kid, for a sizeable fee for ourselves as well. Don't blame him one bit, good luck to the lad, I hope he achieves all his ambitions and dreams over the coming years.
