Re: BFTG Derby (A)

Strange game. First thing I want to say was NO WAY did Derby "sit back on their 2-0 lead". We came out after half time full of speed, aggression and intent and played Derby off the park. Our high press worked, and we kept winning ball back even when we had just lost it. had we started the ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

One of the rational/irrational things that makes me not expect a Derby win is: Back in the days of Football Pools there was an adage that when a side won away in the first game between two teams, they would come home and fail to win (when the odds are obviously in favour of a win) It used to be a go...

and if we managed that, we'd be huge favourites to win the PO's What would it need? About 2.5 ppg?

Re: Worth a couple of Bob?

Thanks Stranded

The top 6-10 are quite competitive, and they might grind out lots of draws.

Perhaps 70/71 might make 6th?

What's the lowest total to make 6th place?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

THEY,ve made 6 changes from their last game....... Maybe but only the keeper would be regarded as a non first-teamer. A good outcome for Reading, although the perfect end would have been for Derby to lose the penalty shoot-out and not have the lift that winning gives you. Quite often after a decent...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

So the Derby win COULD give them a lift OR They could come down, do a version of after the Lord Mayor's Show AND They may, however slightly, be thinking of the fifth round (Accrington in the 4th) AND They are certainly not going to be 100% mentally fresh (small margins etc) AND However slightly, the...

Re: BFTG Forest Home

Agreed on the defensive side of Barrow. Made one excellent tackle in the first half in the NW corner to break up an attack. which got a good cheer, if I remember followed by us looking at each other going "Was that Barrow? What has just happened?" true at least it was a real cheer and not...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

This is potentially a very big game for Reading! The performance against reading was very good and only really lacked the finishing. That was followed up by a win and then a game away to a very good team at a time when they are struggling for results. A win, or even a point in this game could reall...

He’s missed some sitters this season and has never been prolific. I don’t think he is a finisher.


My mistake. I was thinking McNulty

I don't rate Baldock much as a striker
