I almost feel sorry for the bluenoses at the moment When i read some of their fans getting all excited over free transfers from Middlesbrough and Hull and then they sign  the second choice Cardiff keeper. But to be over the moon at signing Hogan on a 4 year contract from a club they hate is unbelievable even for them

They’re signing Jack Clarke on loan from spurs.  That’s a good signing for them.  He ripped Elmo a new one at Villa Park.

They'll do alright this season, they've recruited well. Should be comfortably around 8th-12th.

Na, it’ll be another struggle for Small Heath. Bottom 6 as per usual.

They be comfortable in mid table so long as the board don’t get stupid as normal

Players like Etheridge & Clayton are v good Championship players....Hogan may well still be, always struck me as a player who is not shall we say a gym bunny so is only truly fit when playing matches week in week out

I don't think Small Heath will be scoring many goals this season playing the Karanka style of ten men behind the ball ,so far in his three matches they have scored just once

They didn't score many goals last season but they didn't concede many either. They finished 20th after tailing off in the last part of the season. I think they got complacent because for quite a while they looked safe but they cut it fine in the end regarding staying up. I am going to tip them for 16th place this season. Of course we have to take into account they have sold a club legend. Jude Bellingham 41 appearances/4 goals. Legend.

I think they'll do alright actually, I think they'll be close to the play offs if not actually getting there.

That is my fear as well.  They are not going to concede a lot with Karanka in charge and on that basis they will nick a few games 1-0.  It is kind of what he did with Middlesvilla.

According to Twitter they’re going to win the league.

If you want a good laugh, check out their 5 page match thread on our game. That such a thing exists is hilarious in itself, but in brief

- Never a sending off for Egan
- Targett should have been sent off
- Lundstrom is a disgrace for having a penalty saved
- Sheff Utd are shit, despite finishing higher in the league last season than they have in all but a handful of their entire history.
- Their keeper is shit for not saving the header
- We're all 'fannys' (sic)
- Sweet Caroline is shit

To summarise, it's not fair wah wah wah.

I was just about to post something similar they were like cats in a sack arguing about whether it was a sending off or not.  Remember last week they weren't going to post on us again this season because they want to get 'Karankered'.  That pledge seems to be going well.
