  • @StrongestTeam said: Just as they are about to launch a documentary on him on the dazn channel which we would probably feature heavily in. But on the surprised question of course not, more criminal records than steps. A crime documentary …
  • @StrongestTeam I don't think it's an official record, but he comes up on lists of fastest recorded shots in general. 114 mph apparently.

  • @StrongestTeam said: That's a shame, his Dad was a great player coming through at same time as Shearer until Steve Bould gave him a kicking. Used to hold the record (maybe still does?) for the fastest Premier League shot
  • @our_frank That's true, but Hirst made 31 Championship appearances with little impact, and consensus seems to be he's not really cut out for the level. Then again, maybe he's just been playing too high too early. And I absolutely loathe the expressi…
  • I still expect us to have a physical presence up top in whatever mould. I like the idea of Biamou, who's still a free agent, although we wouldn't be able to 'flip' him.
  • I've only heard bad things about George Hirst's spell at Rotherham. I mean, he didn't score a single goal.
  • @TheAndyGrahamFanClub said: @Wanderers82 said: @DPR38 said: I can’t wait for when we finally sign a new Target Man, excited to see who we get. probably a lad from the u23 Leicester or Soton o…
  • Not convinced we need to sign two strikers if we can get enough out of the main guy. I think Kashket will have a very strong season and the wide forwards / AMs will chip in with a fair few - especially if we revert to 4-3-3. I think we're still one …
  • That's in a friendly, btw

  • Is it even going to be dark enough for fireworks?
  • I'm not expecting it to be anyone particularly well known. Uche felt like a bit of a wildcard and I'd expect the same again. I'd love Hudlin, but if there's any substance to the Cardiff and Sheffield Wednesday rumours then we can pretty much forget …
  • Clubs of our standing don't get proven goalscorers, so you have to make your own. Admittedly I thought Humphrys might have been realistic, but I think I slightly underestimated the level he was operating at. As for Pigott, Wyke etc, they were the…
  • @HolmerBlue said: I'm not sure we'll be restricted to loans from championship clubs, we seem to have a very good relationship with Leicester now, hence the friendly, and the fact we looked after 2 of their youngsters very well last season. Would…
  • We had a player on loan from Arsenal in our last season in L2, so I'm not sure I see the logic there. Not that Premier League youngster automatically = better than Championship youngster, cause that's plainly not the case.
  • But even if we didn't, I'm still not buying the predictions that we'll finish in the bottom half. League One is stronger than when we were last here - but so are we 🤷‍♂️ And we've got stability that many (most?) relegated teams just don't have.
  • @StrongestTeam said: @ReturnToSenda said: I wouldn't say I expect promotion, but Gaz has made it clear that that's the aim - and so it should be. I'll be disappointed if we don't finish at least in the top six. Sounds …
  • Not counting that. They're also three Championship calibre players - and we're not a Championship team anymore. Would be more concerned if we were losing players we really should have been keeping hold of.
  • I wouldn't say I expect promotion, but Gaz has made it clear that that's the aim - and so it should be. I'll be disappointed if we don't finish at least in the top six.
  • Trying to work out who the third player we lost is?
  • Ah yeah, I think that game (Southampton) was earlier this week?
  • I got the impression from Gaz's interview after the Stevenage game that they wanted to keep it largely in-house for Covid reasons. Plus we have just come off the most ridiculously intense season ever, so I think it was always going to be a slightly …
  • @micra said: The trialist midfielder who scored the screamer of an equaliser (No. 17) sounds interesting. Supposedly Ricky Aguiar, last at Worthing.
  • @ReturnToSenda said: In the 3-2 v Shrewsbury (H) in 2018. JJ scored his only ever right-footed goal for Wycombe - a bit of a thunderbastard - and El-Abd got one as well, so a bit of an ex-player goal fest. Just remembered El-Abd's goal an…
  • I didn't know we allowed away supporters to park at the ground (although I'm not sure how you'd distinguish).

  • @aloysius said: @ReturnToSenda said: Yeah, he last played in India. I always assumed he was born in the UK. He was, but you have to have international clearance regardless if your last club was abroad (and that…
  • Yeah, he last played in India.
