Re: Who can save us

I think the best plan is to get a Mad Dog type character as an assistant to shout at everyone and put the players on a training regime to get fit enough to do a high press and at least give the impression of actually trying.

The players are the problem and they need their collective arses kicking.

Re: BFTG - Weds H

We're going down. If ever there was a sign that despite playing ok we leak a goal then are clueless to get back into it. You can blame luck but time after time teams get one chance and take it and then we are fooked. I can bitch about a poor preseason - going into the league without winning, but I d...

Re: BFTG - Aston Villa (A)

J-Low just mentioned Aluko's substitution yesterday, intrigued by this (shows how boring my life is), seemed bizzare that he walked off slowly considering we were 1-0 down at the time. Apparently there was a few jeers from our fans as he went off, can anyone who went elaborate on that or have a dif...

Re: BFTG - Aston Villa (A)

Pretty decent day out. First I would like to complain that the stewards wouldn't let us sit in our allocated seats in Q3 - they'd cordoned off the area, and instead offered us 3 seats together at the front. Why are they selling tickets in areas they don't want you to sit? In the end we found 2+1 sea...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by 3 league wins in 2018

I generally agree about McShane losing 2 points for us, the first pen he was just an idiot. The second looked dodgy to me, on the replay it looked like he went to ground and the attacker feigned to trip over him by not standing on him and ended up falling without contact. McShane gave him the chance...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Just to add. I wonder about Clement

He dropped probably our best player in the previous games - Illori and started without Bod. In hindsight that wasn't a good move.

Re: BFTG - Bolton

We missed Barrow. Bolton took their chance, were cynical and organised and we had no answer. The ref didn't help but we really should have reacted to going 1-0 down. As it was we practically gave up. There were no stars today except maybe the Bolton keeper who saved our best chance. Not sure about t...

Re: Hammond

I thought he had zero input into selecting players, that's down to the manager and scouts. He just did the admin to get them signed. The most input he had for player selection was working through the list of 2 or 3 players that the manager wanted.

Re: BFTG Birmingham

An OK performance against the second string of one of the weaker Championship teams. For much of the second half Reading were ineffective, retreating into a Stam like shell of sitting deep and playing countless pointless cross field passes. Overall a justified result, but not the wholly convincing ...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

I was always a fan of McShane but seeing him at Forest was like watching Pearce run, his legs move quickly but he doesn't cover the ground.

We need Moore back.

Re: BFTG - Forest away

Just got back. As others have said I didn't think we deserved to lose that. From our end it looked like we gifted the chance to them after a defensive mix up. I thought the team played well and were perhaps guilty of over playing in the first half and we never had a final ball. If we'd just shoot an...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

When he left Leicester, they were the reigning Premier League champions and wanted to farm him out on loan deals in the Championship. At the time he felt his career was best served by moving permenantly and establishing himself that way. He quite reasonable outlined his position to Leicester fans o...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

This is the guy that missed a penalty that could have got us promoted.

We stuck with him after that, I think he needs to show a bit of loyalty.

Re: Palace(H) friendly Saturday July 28th

Forest and Derby both managed to beat PL opposition, we on the other hand look a shambles. Can't see anything to be optimistic about the season and in particular playing Derby on Friday. If TBM gets his finger out that has to be an AWAY NAP. The optimist in me was hoping Clement would have a summer ...

Re: BFTT Cardiff

I'm sure everyone thought we'd get totally hammered today so a point against a side promoted is a good result

I have to say that Cardiff were equally shit and can't see them surpassing Derby's points score.

Thanks to Derby for making us safe.
