Re: BFTG Sunderland

The first Sunderland goal, really knocked the stuffing out of us. We then spent the next 20 minutes, playing as badly as anything under Stam. Sunderland fans probably cant believe how we are above them in the League. Then incredibly in the last 20 minutes, we had four clear opportunities for taps in...

Re: BFTG - Preston -Home

I have to admit I had a Colin Firth (Fever Pitch) moment middle of 2nd half, and thought you know what we deserve to go down-Stam had put together a team of staggering incompetence-then reality kicked in & I thought this is just the Championship; get fit, work hard and you've got a chance. TBF t...

BFG QPR

I was on edge from about 30 minutes in & this was just a desperate case of battling through and TBF several players gave it everything. The fault lines are deep and remain; however you cannot fault the effort and fight. I was expecting the worst when I saw Edwards and Joey selected, and wondered...

Whats Clement got to work with ?

IMHO Mannone: Bit disappointing really, no absolute howlers-but no Al Habsi game saver, and took Stam's passing out at the back and putting us under pressure a bit too literally-probably cost four or so goals this season.Probably worth a return, with instructions to hoof it when required. Jakkola: O...

So was Liam Kelly injured ? So Madison is running the midfield and he has two players up against him Dave & Joey ready for the knackers yard.

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

Stam is absolutely doing my head in-I would love us to pick up some points , but that team selection is dreadful. The midfield is light weight, the defence error prone, and he picks a kid to drag us out of the mire. You start with the injury risks-Bacuna, Swift, Kermit. If we get behind , having the...

Re: BFTG - Leeds

30 minutes very good-should have built a good lead-then 60 minutes of pants-we were lucky to get a point-but a draw was probably a fair outcome. IMHO Jakkola 5 : A pretty average performance, was let down by the smack down-OMG I thought it was in. Don't think the lad is quite the full loaf-he takes ...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

I have missed the last two games; but I thought last night, we had regressed even more than since when I was away. We were dreadful. I have tried to support Stam throughout this dire season; but his lack of coaching nous is now clearly evident.Why is he surviving ? Last night he took a huge gamble i...

Re: BFT Appalling mess at home

It would be easy to say this was our worst performance of the season-but there have now been so many, that today was just so much like what has gone before.I really do think that apart from pfaffing around at the back;the real problem is Joey. He is supposed to be the teams heartbeat-yet he is just ...

Re: BFTG Brentford

I actually thought we were pretty awful again today;but TBF slightly better than those run of games against the relegation zone teams. Walking out of the ground I heard someone say we did not deserve to lose-you have to be joking-the Bees in fact missed half a dozen clear cut chances-this is going t...

Re: Back from the shambles - Brum

I am embarrassed to admit that I left with ten minutes to go and chickened out of leaving with twenty minutes to go. A complete first time for me. I knew once the 2nd goal went in, that we were dead meat. TBF I wonder what would have happened if we had scored twice in the opening ten minutes; with B...

Re: BFT £&*@!! - Burton

I'm trying to remember a worse 1st half performance; but am struggling ! Even going back to the Bullivant/Burns/Adkins/Clarke stewardship. Changes have to be made; otherwise like the England cricket team and Broad, Ali and Cook; they can just be allowed to rock up and pick up their appearance money....

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

While it is the Players who are ultimately responsible for last nights fiasco;Stam made a critical error last night in not making a substuition at least 15 minutes before their 1st goal. Instead of which he just sat on his hands. While I felt absolutely gutted walking back to the car-it was an excit...

Re: BFTG Wednesday.

A draw was fair-with both sides having the odd opportunity to score. Sheff Wed were a typical Championship side-worked extremely hard-but despite Fletcher no quality up front. I wont bother with ratings suffice to say Bacuna and Barrow were our best players. On Tuesday night, it is time for Stam to ...

Re: BFTG - Wolves

I agree with most of what has been said. Why change a winning system;even if a few players are injured, at least the rest know what they are doing. Plus Stam's devotion to his two Dutch players is absolutely killing us.Hugely disappointing.Wolves really weren't that great. Mannone 6: Couple of good ...

Re: Back from booing at my tv screen

Trying to be even handed here. I cannot recall a Reading game when everyone had a below par performance-even Moore (eventually). Stam mentioned working harder, sometimes that is the answer, but more often it is about working smarter. So many good players are right off their game-why ? Is the trainin...

Re: BFTG - Hull

Don't agree with Boo Boys (we probably don't pay the players wages-the gate money is not enough),and I have seen us play far worse than today, under the previous three managers, and at least Stam was honest in expressing his annoyance with the booing-far prefer that to the usual stock platitudes.

Re: BFTG (H) Brizzle

Well that was a bummer. Admittedly I haven't seen it again, but surely that had to be red card ? Clear goal scoring opportunity etc ? Although probably Joey was down for a second yellow shortly afterwards. All credit to a pretty crap Brizzie,with no talent, but through sheer hard work and massive sl...
