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

Marcelo Bielsa has called an impromptu press conference for 5pm UK time. Could be off?

Re: Injury & Suspension Watch : 2018/2019

God, I would LOVE to see Baldock being fed by the team as they are playing now. He is a FINISHER Is he? He's never shown it in his career so far... Much more active outside the box, shooting (averagely) from distance leading to the occasional worldie Careful - you'll get some goals per minute stats...

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

Wagner leaving Huddersfield. obvious to say now but he should have walked away at the end of last season as the hero who took them up and kept them up. They had a laughable summer transfer window, not sure what their chairman thought would happen. Wagner will get a decent job in Germany or a top le...

Re: Asian Cup

Expanded this year to take in 24 teams. There are 46 teams in the Asian confederation and that's before someone decides to play so many ineligible players they get the boot (looking at you, Timor-Leste, but another three or four countries got reprimanded or booted. Nonsense). Its easier to work out...

Re: CONFIMRED José Gomes

I get your stance, I defy anyone to say they weren't baffled by the appointment.....however he seems to bring way more positivity than Clement did and if he does pull off the great escape then clearly sacking the last two was the right decision. Clement could never have achieved keeping us up. Clem...

Re: BFTG Forest Home

He missed one definite straight red(Murphy), and a potential other one (Fox). There would be no brawl if he is in there quickly with a red. He wasn’t. There is absolutely no reason he needed to give 5 cards out, except his lack of control. He managed it poorly and then got the decision wrong. I’m n...

Surely that's the end of Eza? Otherwise we have 8 first team midfielders for three positions Bacuna Rinomhota Kelly Eza Baker Ejaria Swift Aluko Considering we're in dire need for a LB (Obita isn't good enough either), CB, two wingers and possibly a striker, I'm shocked how we're wasting two of our...

Re: spaculation - joe hart

Even if we were interested, I doubt he'll want to move south. He'll move to Preston if anywhere as he doesn't have to move house for 6 months.

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

I'm really not sure I would see the point in this. He has failed spectacularly at Championship level to date - now it could be that he has just been at the wrong clubs and hopefully he will fit better in to style Gomes wants us to play and we may see the player that looked so good at Vitesse. If he ...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Totally echo VM's thoughts on middling teams not taking the Cup seriously. It just seems daft and it used to annoy the hell out of me when Coppell did the same. Yep bugs the hell out of me. By the time the FA Cup starts a club like Leicester or Bournemouth know if they are likely to be in relegatio...

To be fair he's fairly hated everywhere he's been, even Brum fans weren't big fans of his even though they were winning under him. Derby fans will be laughing quite heartily today.

Re: Weekend Football

This. The problem with VAR remains the way in which it is used and fans' understanding of what decisions will be overturned and when, not the technology and the decisions made. Another example is the two minutes that the ref in the United v Reading game spent standing motionless with his hand to hi...

Re: Weekend Football

Absolute joke of a VAR decision in the Fulham-Oldham game. Thankfully it was missed, but how the hell the VAR ref saw that as a foul is mystifying. There was the slightest graze of a touch and then the Fulham player clearly dived. Didn't the ref originally give the pen? If so, for it to be reversed...

Re: Clear out started

I think it would be a mistake to let McNulty go-probably useful in Div 1 & given there will be a massive clear out (if) when that happens to us-likely to be a starter. You've hit the problem there as to why letting McNulty go isn't a mistake, this is a clear-out in an attempt to re-shape the sq...

Re: Clear out started

I don't see the problem at all here. The players have been told they are not part of the first team squad so have been removed from it. They still have full access to the facilities just not when the first team are using them. If they aren't going to be picked, then no point wasting first team resou...

Found the Scottish Premier League too physical. Hmmm! I read it that he was simply unsettled in Scotland. Born London I believe, so may feel happier down south?
