Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a) sponsored by Nigel Adkins last game

We shouldn't accept anything other than a win tonight. We are off the back of a good win, granted Brum won at Stoke on Saturday but this is 3 points we really need against a dross side near us currently. Will be important to kick on and make Clement's job safe.

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Another good result. This is where hope must be for the future. Keep up the good work, lads! You’d hope so. U23s up to 3rd again and couple of lads there looking pretty strong Now in my opinion U21/3 teams should be scrapped and replaced with proper old fashioned reserve teams (where perhaps there ...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

I know it's not 1993, I'm aware it's 2018, whilst you don't seem to have moved on from 2013. Three out of four seasons in the bottom 7, with another looking likely chump.

Re: Injury & Suspension Watch : 2018/2019

Is Popa actually still in the squad - I'd somehow assumed he'd been loaned out or sold ... Injured Harriott on verge of playing. Finally competition for the wide positions. Long overdue. And a not quite match fit McCleary looked much better and offered more than Aluko. But then his game is much mor...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

I want to hear from the organisers from last year on what they think the high points and low points have been, and their honest opinion on it, What do they think has gone well or badly? Do they think they should carry or on not? What would they do differently? Where are they and who even are they? ...

Strange, cos only 4% of people in my poll think Millwall will go, whereas 18% think we will. Baffling.

Boxing Day will be interesting.

Re: The Local Journo Thread

did see one of the points in JLow's 'things you might have missed' was that Garath McCleary played on Saturday. I feel sorry for him because he is a man doing a job and trying to do it well. I really don't want to criticise him because I couldn't do his job. But then I also see it's clear he's just...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

There's no decision to make, it was made months ago. The club has sold season tickets there. They're committed for the season. Personally I think that’s a mistake. I would have thought the club should have been more flexible and suggested a three month trial at the start of this season with a view ...

I have absolutely no doubt that this is the case.

Maybe if and when Clement writes an autobiography we might find out what is really going on.
