Re: Gourlay

I think the injury theory is a bit of a myth ... other clubs have horendous injury lists and it's not down to any particular reason, just bad luck. I really don't think that in this day and age, it's anything other than that. So asking the question might make you look like a bit of a conspiracy the...

They will just kiss his backside. They can't go for him because he will just start banning the press from matches and press conferences, the bloke is a oxf*rd worm. Have to say there was nothing new. They did it in parts. It was all done nicely nicely. He basically sounded like a CEO which is that ...

If sir John had just taken the risk and invested in our great 2006 side we could have been a Bournemouth or Brighton , instead he was scared of the huge costs of sustaining PL survival.

Yep I'm gonna be just as negative as when Clement was appointed.

Re: BFTG Villa

Didn't go last night, but from I read it seemed it was Snodgrass' delivery that was the difference between the teams. With the talent Villa had upfront, any half decent ball in the box would cause most teams problems. Given it was against 10 men dont think anyone can be surprised or even over react...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Norwich City (a) sponsored by Delia Smith's cookery course

I'm going, just wonder if there is any chance of it being called off due to weather.

The east of the UK is meant to get a lot of snow overnight.

Re: BFTG ‘Ull (A)

The performance was nowhere near as bad as some on here are saying, but I guess the 8 pages of nonsense on the match page is based on what they heard from Low and Dellor. We were on top for the first 20 mins and nearly scored and then we lose 2 key players in quick succession which did affect the r...

Re: Could Stam be contracted to his current style of play?

Apparently there was a comment on the radio during the Birmingham match ( i didn't hear it I was at the match) concerning the style of play being so slow that our fitness may be suffering. We aren't playing fast committed football for 90 minutes each week ( that part is certainly true) and as a cons...

I like Kermogant, I am really happy that, if he is fit and able to retain that fitness, he has signed a new contract. However he is coming back from a fairly long layoff and he is no spring chicken,...

Re: BFTG - Blackburn Home

Decent performance, thought Blackburn very poor in the 1st half. Decent noise from Y25/6 but agreed with others on the attendance. Just a thought, what's going on with the car parking situation lately? Could that be putting people off? I arrived at the Holiday Inn at about 7:30pm and it was very ne...

Re: Why are "we" booing players keeping the ball?

Have to agree with Sandman here. People talk about the "possession " way of playing football or "hoofball" the more direct way of playing as if those are the only to choices. In truth it is a lot more complicated than that. Steve Coppell and his coaching team used to talk about p...

Re: Tiger speaks to fans

Did anyone raise the apparent contradiction in relying on youth and letting someone like Tish go? Club wouldn't turn down that fee, don't think any club of our stature or even higher would. PLUS Tish asked to go apparently which is hardly surprising given the size of Villa compared to Reading. Hi S...
