rock solid EFL player.  Great business at £12m. In his prime.

We don't need to improve the squad at all to have the best squad in the league if we don't lose anyone else.  Swapped Mr Egypt plus £6m for Ince with Huddersfield.  Think i know who got the best side of that deal.

Not too many goals pre season. Hopefully nothing to be concerned about... 1 week until it starts again! First game away at Leeds has cost me £39 compared to £30 for all away games in the PL, is football the only sport where you pay more for a less quality product??

I’d like to see stoke have a few seasons in the championship.

Got what they deserved last season.

Poor result yesterday at St Pauli too - I'd be worried because we've not looked good pre-season.

I’m not sure less quality product is accurate. The football might not be as technically good but in terms of atmosphere and entertainment I really enjoyed Newcastle’s seasons in the championship.

Rowett performance is indescribably bad.  I could let them train themselves, rock up on a Saturday morning, post the team sheet and say nothing but “gentlemen we are playing 4-4-2” and I think I’d have 8+ points with that squad.  What a clown.

16/1 looks plenty though, I do think they’re a big bet now. There aren’t many good teams in this league.

Perfect summary for me.

How much are we going to lose on Stoke this year.

Can’t believe I’m not going on holiday again. Two years running.

Maybe they will be a big club in Div 1

That was shocking tonight. Something is seriously wrong at the club, from top to bottom it's a shambles. The players have no confidence, baffling selections, baffling tactics, no depth to the squad, questionable signings.

Still very early days, but it seems not too dissimilar to what happened at Sunderland last season.

No depth in the squad?  We must have the biggest wage bill in the league and bundles of depth.  Most of the signings seem reasonable solid as well for this level.  Ince/Williams/Afobe all rock solid on paper at this level.
