Knight is a dick, those comments are those of an absolute dick. Anyone who agrees, even to an extent, with anything he posted is a dick.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by the season starts here

If you put any stock in xG, shows we did a little bit of a smash and grab on Preston who xG suggests should have won 3-2 (2.5xG V 1.5) rather than lost. Will take that any day of the week though. Important to get off the mark - and with 2 other teams who have struggled so far this season coming up ...

Re: Clement

I am unable to back this up in any way but I believe I read that short corners (as in not into the box) result in more goals that corners crossed deep into the box. Corners and goal kicks both wind me up a little as in both cases pumping it long often lead to either a counter attack or sustained po...

Re: Record Watch 2018/19

1s3 wins Premier League -Chelsea, Liverpool & Watford Championship - none League One - none League Two - none And then there were two, not even the legend Troy Deeney could keep the Hornets run going And they play each other on the 29th so likely down to 1 then at worst (expect them to beat Wes...

Re: 3rd UEFA Cup Competition

This will sound really outlandish and probably unpopular but I would like the Champions League to become exactly that. A league of just the Champions from Europes top league. Have a league of 12 - 16 teams who play eachother twice over the course of the season. You are guaranteed some huge games on...

Re: BFTG - Preston

I've not been able to go to matches for a while so haven't seen Reading play for a while but just curious if everyone agrees that Aluko is a waste of space or are there those who disagree but keep quiet on here? I just find it strange that everyone is so negative about him yet the manager obviously...

Re: Tevreden Out, Nani In

So, we clearly don't know the full ins and outs here but this is how I think things are at the club currently: RG was brought in with at least one of his tasks to cut costs across the board, so that whatever cash we do have can be maximised for squad additions. This meant taking over some responsib...

Re: Nations League & Friendlies

Watched Liechtenstein v Gibraltar last night, as have a soft spot for the country of Liechtenstein. Was a pretty entertaining game, capped off by a certain Sandro Wieser popping up with the second in a 2-0 win. Really enjoying this competition, will always be 3rd priority for international managers...

Re: 3rd UEFA Cup Competition

Isn't the Europa League treated as a complete irrelevance as it is? Wish FIFA and Uefa would just leave football alone, its not broken so don't try to fix it. Only in England - here it is a pretty big deal to qualify for it as it is seen as a reward for a successful season and there doesn't seem to...

3rd UEFA Cup Competition

From 2021/22 UEFA have announced today they plan to have a 3rd competition of 32 teams. Europa League will drop down to 32 teams as well, so 96 teams qualify across the 3 comps. Will we see this 3rd comp as a rebrand of the Cup Winners Cup? Would imagine this will also remove the safety net of 3rd p...

Yep and even with the 12 point penalty, a win for them on Saturday v QPR (H) whilst we lose at PNE, would take them back above us on GD.

Re: Birmingham points deduction?

what i don't get is, don't the football league have to ratify the transfer? why did they approve it for a team on an embargo :roll: That is where I was baffled. Transferring a player is all about transfering which club he is registered to according to the authorities. A player signs a registration ...

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

Nolan sacked from Notts County. 1 point from 5 games after making the play offs last year. You're only as good as your last five games I guess. Thing is they were top in November (admittedly thanks to Nolan), and second in January, but won just 7 of their last 18 games. They should have gone up. Ha...
