Re: Rumour: Kemar Roofe for 7m

I think 7m should be the ceiling for a player like this.

Re: RUMOUR - David Meyler

I don't know how good this guy is but pleeeeeeease let's not repeat Stam's error of believing ten 1/10 players is the same as one 10/10 player! He brought in so many average midfielders but seemingly forgot we can only play a certain number at a time. *If* (and I don't know) he's no better than wha...

Re: Back from the ****

Watched the replay and I need to know just one thing. FIRST GOAL: Which of the three defenders was the oxf*rd who was meant to be marking the guy who was completely free to tap in? I can't make out who it was but I won't be sending him a Christmas card. It should have been Elphick based on where he...

Strikers.

We've survived. Yay. Many people were crying out for strikers including me. And I still put our huge failure down to not getting one or two proven goalscorers. So it stuns me that Clement has said that is an area we have a surplus in. Yes true in terms of numbers we have a lot but quantity does not ...

Stam would have lost all those games.

Less red cards only because the players would give less of a shit under Stam than they seem to now.

Re: BFTG Wednesday (a)

I don't think there is much point in pointing out everything we did wrong there. Midfield was dire. Swift looked like he was playing with an under 18s team around him but was equally ineffective. Everyone seemed afraid to take a shot. Ref was poor. Goals were all from sloppy defending. Bod sadly ha...

Re: Arriving to games late

I once came to a game late. I missed a couple of minutes of football. I wrote to John Madejski to ask for a refund because they started the game without me, which is rude. There's a clip online somewhere featuring a groundhopper turning up at a game at Bracknell dead on 3 pm, only to find the refer...

Re: BFG QPR

Blackett 7 One terrible clearance in the first half. Otherwise he played well and "but a couple of lapses." and "made a couple of mistakes but" 3 of the 4 of the reports on TB can't be wrong, he unsurprisingly made noticeable mistakes. I don't wish to be negative for what was a ...

Re: BFG QPR

Sounded on the radio like the one difference here was the fight the players suddenly found in them. I wonder how many points this sort of fight is worth in a season. In this game it was probably worth at least 2 if not 3 points. Well done players, well done Clement, well done Gourlay et al for makin...

Re: Whats Clement got to work with ?

To be honest I don't think I can judge any of the players' abilities as they weren't themselves this season after the playoff heartache, the injuries, the horrible directionless possession football and the downward spiral of confidence all of which caused the players to underperform massively. We ha...

Re: New Manager Press Conference 12pm today

Exactly people have got hooked onto this term "possession based football" and think that everything that involves a bit of patience and possession is the same.

I look forward to possession based football being done properly with a decent plan B and plan C should the opposition press.

Re: Tactical analysis from Paul Clement

Thanks Tremaine this is really useful and has really given me a lot of confidence. Hearing him speak inspires me with confidence. I'm sure Stam would have thoughts like this but I always got the impression he had a great idea in not losing the ball and yes that sort of worked for the first season, m...

Re: POLL: Paul Clement in... are we still going down?

Paul Clement *may* not be the greatest manager in the world but he's not awful. His biggest crime is perhaps playing negative football. The point however is that Stam this season has been utterly woeful and totally clueless. I honestly believe was worse than having no one there. It literally couldn...
