Re: The League of 4

Seems to be much rejoicing all over the place after yesterday but need to keep our feet firmly on the ground , still work to be done, if we lose at Bristol and results go against us we could be back in the mix. I agree. It's not as if this exact same thing didn't happen last weekend! Massive three ...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

http://www.griffinpark.org/forums/showthread.php?t=131864 Not very complimentary to us, many calling us "rubbish opposition" or "shouldn't be losing to teams like Reading". Funny that, that's twice this season they think they have a divine right to just walk over us End of the d...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h) sponsored by Terry Hurlock

They are a decent side and we will have to play really well with no complacency to get anything out of this one. If we play like we did against Preston we'll have a chance of getting a good result. Reading their forum, they like to play teams on the break, presumably attacking with a lot of pace, so...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Their defending for Rino’s goal was appalling. All stood off - was bizarrely bad I watched the highlights back, it's not just Rino. If he had missed it Ejaria was there in even more space. Say what you want about it being a one sided affair, but any team that defends like that in the last minute of...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

I love the irony of the time wasting comments when what was the first thing Norwich did after going 2-1 up.....! The other thing I noticed about last night was what a bunch of freaks their crowd looked like whenever the cameras turned towards the stands. I know we have a few ourselves in that dept b...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

When is the last time a relatively recent league club went bust? I can only think of rushden and diamonds for some reason but there must he some more. Hereford United, went bust in 2014. Darlington 2012 (the club currently with that name is not the same entity, whatever their supporters might like ...

Re: Rival Watch

Biter sweet for me. The worst fans are back in championship. Now have to see and here Fulham fans talk about championship football and how they are a class above the rest. Depends how you define “worst” fans. We finished 23rd last season in terms of away attendance. Only Button Abion had a worse av...

If it was the chance in the second half, I think the Sky highlights show it Seth.

Re: BFTG - PNE

After the first few minutes on Saturday I thought we might be in for a good afternoon as Preston weren't doing what most teams do against us, which is close us down quickly, reduce our time on the ball, and force us into silly errors and gifts for the opposition. I was really surprised by that as I ...

AthleticoSpizz Maybe he could do a job for us?


Knowing our luck, we'd sign him and he would spend most of the time injured.

Re: Rival Watch

Personally I quite like Birmingham City due to family supporting connections. It can still be an intimidating ground to visit in the modern age, some proper sometimes unhinged fans. Keep right on is a great club anthem too and very appropriate for a club that represents true Brummies in the shadow o...

Re: Rival Watch

The only player worth picking off the Bolton carcass would be Luca Connell, their 17 year old midfielder who has been their only glimmer of hope for the future. Unfortunately we would have to join a long queue behind several premier league clubs scouts, including Spurs who are reported to be trackin...

Re: The League of 4

I can't see Bolton beating Norwich on Saturday. After their wake up call at Preston last night they will be fired up not to repeat what happened, and Bolton are nowhere near Preston's current level. Ipswich may get a point at home to Stoke but given the quality that there is still in the Stoke side ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday sponsored by Adrian Popa

It's Steve Bruce's first home game in charge so there will be an increased air of optimism I would imagine. If we concede early that will lift the place further and I can see a 2-0 or 3-0 defeat. If we can play as we have been for the last couple of weeks though and the defence is comfortable, we co...
