Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (h) sponsored by a nice quiet evening out

Did I miss something, who defends a single goal lead by putting a striker on?

For one of the best centre backs of the past 25 years, Stam can't organise a defence for sh*t.

Re: BFTG Millwall

Let's get this straight, Stam choked at Wembley last season. I've dwelt a lot on what happened that day and I cannot get away from the fact that we didn't set ourselves up in any way to get a result that day. There was barely any forward motion, no penetration whatsoever and a lot of listless backwa...

Re: BFTG Swansea

Safe to say we can expect to face the high press from every team we play now. Stam's build from the back total football drivel will no longer fly and we're going to have to actually move and make space to keep possession. On the basis of the last couple of games we are as incapable of this as we are...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Swansea City Reserves (h) still looking for a sponsor

Turns out even Swansea have watched more than 10 minutes of a DVD of a Stam team and knew to press high and, once again, our back line were totally flummoxed. Jakkola didn't have a clue what to do as there is clearly no plan B at the back, just like there is no plan A going forward. Listless, dull, ...

Re: BFTG Bees

Going to these games right now is exhausting. A mixture of Stam's quaint, dull as f*ck total football, with the usual tedious build from the back, but now with the addition that the bluff has been called by managers who have set up to press high and our totally inflexible back line have no plan b. I...

Re: BFTG (H) Brizzle

JDB's performance in particular, while talked to death on here, gets worse every time i think about it and even more so since i've seen the replays. What we have here is a guy who needs to be able to take the ball on, hold it up and finish who cannot take the ball on, hold it up or finish. He was CO...

I would have preferred Jota tbh.


Heard this too but this morning's talk is that they've offered £15m to NUFC for Gayle.

Which is nuts

According to GetWestLondon we're interested (along with seemingly everyone else), but are set to lose out to the fake hoops.

Re: BFTG - QPR (A)

From goal kicks they man-marked all 4 of our defenders and no-one had a clue what to do. Only 6 subs is crazy for the first day of the season. Where was Obita? - hopefully "just" an injury and not unsettled by a bid. We move on. This. I spent a lot of last season wondering why teams weren...

Re: BFTG - QPR (A)

Tbh that was a perfect follow on from the playoff final, and summed up a pre season which has been notable only for its total lack of coherency and urgency. At Wembley, we sat back for 120 minutes and created, at best, a couple of half chances. Today was the same, only without the half chances. We c...
