<b>Where will we finish?</b>

8th

 

<b>Will Roeder still be our manager in January?</b>

Yes

 

<b>Which of our younger/fringe players (if any) will make a name for himself this season and why?</b>

O'Brien - His pace is enough for him to be considered.

 

<b>Will Dyer play more than 5 games for us this season?</b>

Yes

 

<b>Will Shola score more goals than he did last season?</b>

Certainly with Europe chances for him. Not 20 like.

 

<b>Will we get to see the real Albert Luque or will he continue to disappoint?</b>

It depends if Roeder gives him his chance. If Roeder gives him his proper time on the pitch, 15-20 starts, then we will see the real Albert Luque. However if he gets half a dozen 10 sub appearances and a start against Rotherham or whoever in the cup, then he will dissapoint and be slated.

 

<b>Who will be the star of our defence ('keeper included)?</b>

Shay Given - It's got to be. Although Taylor has his chance to show how much he is progressing.

 

<b>And midfield?</b>

The lone signing - Damien Duff. He will create alot of chances for us, more than Solano who is starting to get on a bit. Vital to us scoring goals. Someone like him will give Ameobi a couple of more goals.

 

<b>And up front?</b>

Well who is there  :lol:. Whoever we bring in (hopefully) it will be them. Ameobi is a decent striker but not good enough to star upfront for us.

 

<b> How many new players will we sign before the close of this transfer window?</b>

3 players - Gravesen, Bridge and John

 

<b>And how many will leave?</b>

1 player - Boumsong

 

<b>How many times will "Shearer-Shearer" be chanted this season?</b>

Alot

 

<b>Who will flop for us this season?</b>

Hate to say it but Bramble.

 

<b>Who will outshine all others?</b>

Milner can have a good season if given the chance. Shay and Tayls as well.

 

<b>Will Owen make an appearance before the season is over?</b>

Nope. This season is a write-off.

 

<b>Will an attendance drop below the 50,000 mark for a league game for the first time since SJP was rebuilt?</b>

Nah. Doubt it.

 

<b>Will we go the season without any off-field dramas/headlines of the name through mud variety?</b>

Possibly. Bowyer and Bellamy have gone. Dyer might get involved somehow, something could happen with Butt.

 

<b>Will we win something this year?</b>

No  bluecry.gif

 

<b>How far in all the cups, then?</b>

Quarter Finals of FA, Carling and UEFA

 

<b>Nicky Butt - will he win you over?</b>

If we sign a striker, I doubt he'll play so no.

 

<b>Will we miss Shearer this season?</b>

Possibly. Even in his last season he was scoring goals. We NEED to buy two strikers or we'll start to miss him a few months in.

 

<b>Are you excited about the new season?</b>

Of Course. No matter what happens in the summer or the lack of signings, I always look forward to the season ahead.

<b>Will Roeder still be our manager in January?</b>

 

Yes, but hanging on.

 

<b>Which of our younger/fringe players (if any) will make a name for himself this season and why?</b>

 

Pattison.

 

<b>Will Dyer play more than 5 games for us this season?</b>

 

Yes but not by much.

 

<b>Will Shola score more goals than he did last season?</b>

 

As is? Yes. If we sign some new forwards, no.

 

<b>Will we get to see the real Albert Luque or will he continue to disappoint?</b>

 

Unless he gets games, no. If he gets games, maybe. Doub it though regardless.

 

<b>Who will be the star of our defence ('keeper included)?</b>

 

Shay, as ever.

 

<b>And midfield?</b>

 

Duff.

 

<b>And up front?</b>

 

Whoever scores the most goals in that position.

2.

 

<b>And how many will leave?</b>

 

1.

 

<b>How many times will "Shearer-Shearer" be chanted this season?</b>

 

Whenever we are losing or getting tonked.

 

<b>Who will flop for us this season?</b>

 

Luque.

 

<b>Who will outshine all others?</b>

 

In terms of effort, Parker. In terms of consistency, Shay. In terms of skill and ability - Duff/N'Zogbia. Between those lot.

 

<b>Will Owen make an appearance before the season is over?</b>

 

Yes.

 

<b>Will an attendance drop below the 50,000 mark for a league game for the first time since SJP was rebuilt?</b>

 

No.

 

<b>Will we go the season without any off-field dramas/headlines of the name through mud variety?</b>

 

Ha, as if.

 

<b>Will we win something this year?</b>

 

No.

 

<b>How far in all the cups, then?</b>

 

UEFA, knocked out after the group stage. FA - 4th round. LC - 4th round.

 

<b>Nicky Butt - will he win you over?</b>

 

No.

 

<b>Will we miss Shearer this season?</b>

 

Yes, in more ways than we realise.

 

<b>Are you excited about the new season?</b>

 

Not really, sadly.

It is now or never.  If he cant this season his contract should be cancelled

<b>Where will we finish?</b>

 

15th

 

<b>Will Roeder still be our manager in January?</b>

 

Yes, but the Roeder out campaign will be in full motion.

 

<b>Which of our younger/fringe players (if any) will make a name for himself this season and why?</b>

 

None.

 

<b>Will Dyer play more than 5 games for us this season?</b>

 

Hope so, our only chance of attaining something respectable will rely on his fitness.

 

 

<b>Will Shola score more goals than he did last season?</b>

 

If he even plays half as many games as he did last season I'll strongly contemplate jumping to the mackem ship.

 

 

<b>Will we get to see the real Albert Luque or will he continue to disappoint?</b>

 

Depends if he actually gets picked ahead of shitola.

 

 

<b>Who will be the star of our defence ('keeper included)?</b>

 

Bramble. Taylor is over rated.

 

<b>And midfield?</b>

 

Duff, or Dyer if he gets fit.

 

 

<b>And up front?</b>

 

As it stands, Luque.

 

 

<b> How many new players will we sign before the close of this transfer window?</b>

 

Probably none.

 

 

<b>And how many will leave?</b>

 

Boumsong, possibly Milner imo.

 

 

<b>How many times will "Shearer-Shearer" be chanted this season?</b>

 

Don't care.

 

<b>Who will flop for us this season?</b>

 

Both full backs.

 

<b>Who will outshine all others?</b>

 

Big Chuck NZog could but unfortunately can't see him being given a huge number of chances to.

 

<b>Will Owen make an appearance before the season is over?</b>

 

A brief one before snapping something else.

 

<b>Will an attendance drop below the 50,000 mark for a league game for the first time since SJP was rebuilt?</b>

 

No.

 

 

<b>Will we go the season without any off-field dramas/headlines of the name through mud variety?</b>

 

No

 

 

<b>Will we win something this year?</b>

 

Fuck no.

 

 

<b>How far in all the cups, then?</b>

 

Who cares, we won't win one.

 

 

<b>Nicky Butt - will he win you over?</b>

 

If he motivates himself.

 

 

<b>Will we miss Shearer this season?</b>

 

Yup

 

<b>Are you excited about the new season?</b>

 

No, dreading the fucker, ask me in 4 signings time.

7,8 or 9th.

 

Will be an average season with maybe one good cup run. The new striker will be the top scorer simply coz Shola doesnt have more than ...13 goals in him id say. Owen out for season. I can see Dyer maybe getting 15 - 20 games - just coz Roeder seems confident. Charlie star youngster again, Shay or Duff start Man.

Parker will be a quality captain, despite what some of the muppets on here say. Bramble will have some amazing games, but overall be crap. I fancy Luque to have a half decent season, much better than last - not saying much.

 

Thats my opinion.

8th.

 

 

<b>Will Roeder still be our manager in January?</b>

 

Yes.

 

 

<b>Which of our younger/fringe players (if any) will make a name for himself this season and why?</b>

 

Steven Taylor for being absolute class through and through.

 

<b>Will Dyer play more than 5 games for us this season?</b>

 

Yes.

 

<b>Will Shola score more goals than he did last season?</b>

 

Yes, he'll get 12 in the league.

 

<b>Will we get to see the real Albert Luque or will he continue to disappoint?</b>

 

He will not get his chance since Roeder doesn't fancy him.

 

<b>Who will be the star of our defence ('keeper included)?</b>

 

Steven Taylor

 

<b>And midfield?</b>

 

James Milner

 

<b>And up front?</b>

 

Not Shola, Finnigan, Carroll or Troisi.

 

<b> How many new players will we sign before the close of this transfer window?</b>

 

2. Wayne Bridge and a striker. At best Klose, at worst someone so uninspiring that the thought of him is impossible.

 

 

<b>And how many will leave?</b>

 

1 - Jean-Alain.

 

 

<b>How many times will "Shearer-Shearer" be chanted this season?</b>

 

Dont care and have no clue. He's part of the past and there's hopefully someone new to cheer for.

 

<b>Who will flop for us this season?</b>

 

Nicky Butt will prove to be a disaster again and Peter Ramage will hopefully sign for Halifax Town in January.

 

<b>Who will outshine all others?</b>

 

James Milner is the man.

 

 

<b>Will Owen make an appearance before the season is over?</b>

 

Yes he will come on in may and fire one shot wide right from a poor angle. Then Freddy will refer to that encouraging late cameo when we sign 32 midfielders in the summer.

 

 

<b>Will an attendance drop below the 50,000 mark for a league game for the first time since SJP was rebuilt?</b>

 

No.

 

 

<b>Will we go the season without any off-field dramas/headlines of the name through mud variety?</b>

 

Yes.

 

<b>Will we win something this year?</b>

 

No.

 

 

<b>How far in all the cups, then?</b>

 

Uefa-Cup 4th round playing too good opposition. League Cup Quarterfinal. FA-Cup Quarterfinal.

 

<b>Nicky Butt - will he win you over?</b>

 

Never.

 

 

<b>Will we miss Shearer this season?</b>

 

Depends on who comes in. Right now we'll miss him more than you would ever have guessed.

 

 

<b>Are you excited about the new season?</b>

 

Not really. Though more excited going into it with a manager who haven't proven he is utter shite at this club for the first time in 2 years.

10th.

 

<b>Will Roeder still be our manager in January?</b>

 

Yes.

 

<b>Which of our younger/fringe players (if any) will make a name for himself this season and why?</b>

 

Paul Huntington - because our centre-backs will continue to disappoint.

 

<b>Will Dyer play more than 5 games for us this season?</b>

 

Maybe 6.

 

<b>Will Shola score more goals than he did last season?</b>

 

I suppose he'll have to.

 

<b>Will we get to see the real Albert Luque or will he continue to disappoint?</b>

 

Nope - because he won't play.

Really any need to answer that?

Parker.

Yeah right.

 

<b>Will we win something this year?</b>

 

Yeah right.

 

<b>How far in all the cups, then?</b>

 

3rd Round of Carling Cup. Latter stages of FA Cup. Latter stages of UEFA.

No.

Will Shola score more goals than he did last season?

 

Yes, I think he'll have a good season.

 

 

Will we get to see the real Albert Luque or will he continue to disappoint?

 

No, he'll disappoint

 

 

 

How can anyone back Luque for a bad season and Shola for a good one? It defies all logic !

Duff

<b>Where will we finish?</b>

 

With our current players, between 12th and 8th and that depends if Owen gets back this season.

 

<b>Will Roeder still be our manager in January?</b>

 

He should be.

 

<b>Which of our younger/fringe players (if any) will make a name for himself this season and why?</b>

 

N'Zogbia and Pattison if they get enough games, it looks as if they will if nobody else comes in.

 

<b>Will Dyer play more than 5 games for us this season?</b>

 

No idea, he'll be finished if he doesn't.

 

<b>Will Shola score more goals than he did last season?</b>

 

Let's hope so, it looks as if he might be all we're going to have up front.

 

<b>Will we get to see the real Albert Luque or will he continue to disappoint?</b>

 

Probably not.

 

<b>Who will be the star of our defence ('keeper included)?</b>

 

Given, possibly Taylor once he regains match fitness.

 

<b>And midfield?</b>

 

N'Zogbia nd Duff

 

<b>And up front?</b>

 

Where?

 

<b> How many new players will we sign before the close of this transfer window?</b>

 

Probably a couple but it doesn't look as if we'll get a replacement for Shearer, I could be wrong.

 

<b>And how many will leave?</b>

 

Probably Boumsong.

 

<b>How many times will "Shearer-Shearer" be chanted this season?</b>

 

If we get nobody up front then I think the Shearer chant will be heard far too often.

 

<b>Who will flop for us this season?</b>

 

Luque.

 

<b>Who will outshine all others?</b>

 

N'Zogbia and Duff.

 

<b>Will Owen make an appearance before the season is over?</b>

 

Probably back for the last month.

 

<b>Will an attendance drop below the 50,000 mark for a league game for the first time since SJP was rebuilt?</b>

 

I thought we'd already had one in 2001.

 

<b>Will we go the season without any off-field dramas/headlines of the name through mud variety?</b>

 

Probably.

 

<b>Will we win something this year?</b>

 

No.

 

<b>How far in all the cups, then?</b>

 

The League Cup is our best chance, probably Quarter-Finals.

 

<b>Nicky Butt - will he win you over?</b>

 

Possibly, I'm sure he's good enough if he gets his head right.

 

<b>Will we miss Shearer this season?</b>

 

We shouldn't but we probably will.

 

<b>Are you excited about the new season?</b>

 

No.

8-10th at the moment.  I still think we'd struggle to break the top 6 regardless of having Owen back or some, unless exceptional, top striker. 

 

<b>Will Roeder still be our manager in January?</b>

Yes.

 

<b>Which of our younger/fringe players (if any) will make a name for himself this season and why?</b>

Taylor count as young/fringe these days?  If not, N'Zogbia will make more of a name for himself this year.  Saving us in some very vital games, no doubt.

 

<b>Will Dyer play more than 5 games for us this season?</b>

Nope.  Not starts, anyway.

 

<b>Will Shola score more goals than he did last season?</b>

Yes, but still probably not enough/what's needed.

 

<b>Will we get to see the real Albert Luque or will he continue to disappoint?</b>

More to come from his this season.  If he's a failure though, I reckon he's off in January.

 

<b>Who will be the star of our defence ('keeper included)?</b>

Given.  Another season, another saviour.

 

<b>And midfield?</b>

Duff.

 

<b>And up front?</b>

Luque.

 

<b> How many new players will we sign before the close of this transfer window?</b>

One.  Two at a push, but one player that we actually need, the other will be pointless.  Hope I'm wrong.

 

<b>And how many will leave?</b>

No more.

 

<b>How many times will "Shearer-Shearer" be chanted this season?</b>

Too many.  No disrespect to the bloke either, it's just, er, sad.

 

<b>Who will flop for us this season?</b>

Parker

 

<b>Who will outshine all others?</b>

Duff.

 

<b>Will Owen make an appearance before the season is over?</b>

Nope.

 

<b>Will an attendance drop below the 50,000 mark for a league game for the first time since SJP was rebuilt?</b>

No. 

 

<b>Will we go the season without any off-field dramas/headlines of the name through mud variety?</b>

No.

 

<b>Will we win something this year?</b>

Asif.

 

<b>How far in all the cups, then?</b>

Semis of the FA Cup.  The round after the group stage in the UEFA (is that the quarters?).  Quarters in the League Cup.

 

<b>Nicky Butt - will he win you over?</b>

Yes.

 

<b>Will we miss Shearer this season?</b>

Yes and no.  Not really an answer.  But we'll miss him because we're desperate, but it's a season too late to be getting over him, so no...

 

<b>Are you excited about the new season?</b>

Yes, but not as much as I wanted to be.

I can't believe you who are not excited about the new season! Sure, our team is not as good as it should be, but we will still see some good football from the lads. I can't wait for kick-off tomorrow, and I'll just be listening to it on the radio!

<b>Where will we finish?</b>

 

6th-8th

 

<b>Will Roeder still be our manager in January?</b>

 

Certainly, no fear

 

<b>Which of our younger/fringe players (if any) will make a name for himself this season and why?</b>

 

I'm hoping Huntington comes back from loan and steps up... I can't see Pattison or O' Brien getting enough chances to shine

 

<b>Will Dyer play more than 5 games for us this season?</b>

 

Yes, and hopefully he can contribute to the cause for a change too!

 

<b>Will Shola score more goals than he did last season?</b>

 

Please God yes, because if he doesn't we're screwed

 

<b>Will we get to see the real Albert Luque or will he continue to disappoint?</b>

 

I can't see him getting the chance to shine - most likely shipped out in January

 

<b>Who will be the star of our defence ('keeper included)?</b>

 

Given of course, Babayaro to win a few over with improved performances

 

<b>And midfield?</b>

 

Duff - quality

 

<b>And up front?</b>

 

Martins? ;)

 

<b> How many new players will we sign before the close of this transfer window?</b>

 

One or two - Martins and maybe Bridge. I think Gravesen is a dead deal

 

<b>And how many will leave?</b>

 

Boumsong shipped out unlamented

 

<b>How many times will "Shearer-Shearer" be chanted this season?</b>

 

Too many times... Though once would be too often

 

<b>Who will flop for us this season?</b>

 

I've got this fear the Zog will have a case of the second season blues, and I can see Nobby fading badly

 

<b>Who will outshine all others?</b>

 

Duff and Given

 

<b>Will Owen make an appearance before the season is over?</b>

 

Same as last year, maybe a game or two at the end for morale purposes :D

 

<b>Will an attendance drop below the 50,000 mark for a league game for the first time since SJP was rebuilt?</b>

 

Hmmm... couldn't say for certain. I surely hope not

 

<b>Will we go the season without any off-field dramas/headlines of the name through mud variety?</b>

 

mackems.gif More chance of Shola winning the European Golden Boot and an England call up!

 

<b>Will we win something this year?</b>

 

Would be a foolish man that tipped us, but you never can tell in the cups... If we're lucky :D

 

<b>How far in all the cups, then?</b>

 

UEFA - 3rd round, League Cup - straight out, FA Cup 5th round

 

<b>Nicky Butt - will he win you over?</b>

 

I'll go with the "Roeder: clean slate" line (as I wasn't in cardiff ;) )

 

<b>Will we miss Shearer this season?</b>

 

His goalscoring or his presence in the changeroom? Nay to the former, aye to the latter

 

<b>Are you excited about the new season?</b>

 

Of course - if you're not excited at the start of the season why bother? Just because we're not I'd like us to be is no reason to go into the new season all gloom and doom!

Yes.

 

<b>Which of our younger/fringe players (if any) will make a name for himself this season and why?</b>

 

Pattison and O'Brien, though I doubt either will get many opportunities as they play in positions where we're well stocked.

 

<b>Will Dyer play more than 5 games for us this season?</b>

 

Yes.

 

<b>Will Shola score more goals than he did last season?</b>

 

Yes, because he'll be playing every week (barring injury).

 

<b>Will we get to see the real Albert Luque or will he continue to disappoint?</b>

 

He won't get a run in the side under Roeder.

 

<b>Who will be the star of our defence ('keeper included)?</b>

 

Taylor.

 

<b>And midfield?</b>

 

Emre.

 

<b>And up front?</b>

 

Whoever comes in before the end of August (I hope).

 

<b> How many new players will we sign before the close of this transfer window?</b>

 

3.

 

<b>And how many will leave?</b>

 

1 (Boumsong).

 

<b>How many times will "Shearer-Shearer" be chanted this season?</b>

 

Lots.

 

<b>Who will flop for us this season?</b>

 

Moore.

 

<b>Who will outshine all others?</b>

 

Duff.

 

<b>Will Owen make an appearance before the season is over?</b>

 

No.

 

<b>Will an attendance drop below the 50,000 mark for a league game for the first time since SJP was rebuilt?</b>

 

No.

 

<b>Will we go the season without any off-field dramas/headlines of the name through mud variety?</b>

 

No chance, too many media vultures hovering around the club.

 

<b>Will we win something this year?</b>

 

Yes. The UEFA Cup.

 

<b>How far in all the cups, then?</b>

 

Quarters of domestic cups. All the way in UEFA if we can avoid any big CL teams.

 

<b>Nicky Butt - will he win you over?</b>

 

Doubt it. One 20 minute performance in a friendly does not erase a shocking season. But I'll give him his chance.

 

<b>Will we miss Shearer this season?</b>

 

Yes. We don't have anyone who can hold the ball up like him and we'll have to find a new style of play.

 

<b>Are you excited about the new season?</b>

 

I'm always excited about the new season.
