Re: BFTG Brentford

In all seriousness do you not feel league 1 could benefit the club right now. Get a winning mentality back and just some kind of character this season has absolutely killed my passion off I think it is the wrong attitude to have, to assume that if we go down we would be certain to come back up. I w...

Re: BFTG Brentford

Don't, or if you do wear plenty of layers. It's always, and I do mean ALWAYS, cold there. I only want to go to Oldham if someone scores a Simon Osborn lob.

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

In Germany, shame Bayern are running away again as below them just 1 point separates Leverkusen in 2nd from Frankfurt in 7th. There's only 6pts between 2nd and 11th. At the bottom Cologne winning at Hamburg means their great escape attempt is on. Hamburg themselves starting to finally look doomed, t...

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

Can’t see what we have over Sunderland. Personally I don’t think he’d go to us if he doesn’t want to join Sunderland... We may be having a bad season, Sunderland are an absolute basketcase of a club. When you have fans calling for Coleman to leave, to save his own reputation, it gives you an idea o...

Re: VAR

I read a lot about 'it will disrupt the flow of the game', but is there any evidence in its use so far that it 'disrupts the flow of the game', any more so that the time is has taken to correct a wrong decision, or ensure a decision is correct? It took 67 seconds from Ineacho's shot hitting the net...

Re: VAR

I'd have introduced it gradually with a bit of framework i.e. we're used to goalline tech let's use VAR for the next step Check for offsides after a 'goal' has been scored...it's binary and will sort marginal decisions out effectively It is being introduced gradually though isn't it?

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

I imagine we're waiting for them to sign a new striker first. Apparently Cameron Jerome is having a medical there today, after which I imagine he will be on his way. Bit of a weird one that, Jerome is hardly an upgrade on Martin... :| Alan Nixon said something on Twitter about Derby wanting more of...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Awful defending from both sides. I can almost hear Hansen. Phenomenal attacking though. Yeah, 4-3 flattered City, but Karius should have stopped the first*, and Lovren didn't get off the ground for the cross on the third. Van Dijk is such a huge upgrade in defence it's almost unreal. I can't see Ka...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Either that, or it shows the lack of quality available. That's my one worry about sacking Stam. Not that I think Stam is going anywhere but Stoke made a rod for their own back by stating that they only wanted a manager with Premier League experience. That automatically made the pool of talent much ...

Re: BFTG ‘Ull (A)

Fairly drab game that we may have just about edged - won enough decent headers from corners to have done better with one of them. Still not quite sure how Moore managed not to score with a free header 5 yards out. Vito made a couple of decent saves at the other end. Their "goal" was rightl...

Re: Moore or striker?

Well if we are bringing in Martin on loan - that will do up front for the rest of the season. To buy a striker now will cost silly money, esp. if we want to get one in who is scoring regularly. My view - Moore is going either now or in the summer so if a bid comes in now for upward of £10m take it t...

And not really anyone else without playing someone out of position. Unless you think Blackett is a LB - he isn't.
