Re: Liam Kelly transfer rumours

Sure there's going to be a few teams interested. Currently linked with Swansea, but undoubtedly there will be others, so I thought better to have his own thread. Would hate to lose him mind you. I see that Swansea have offered their own little 'un one more year so Kelly might not be on their wanted...

Re: Best/Worst Pundit

But given a home win for Liverpool was a definite.......if it hadn't been a slightly higher calibre of team Liverpool were playing on the last day I would say fair enough. I get that it's also about viewing figures. However, there needs to be a re-jigging of the prize money to negate someone gettin...

Re: Team for Fulham (h)

There was an earlier game where Obita looked to have suffered a serious injury but was back playing again within 3 or 4 days-I wonder if he is susceptible to severe cramp. As for Tuesday's side I feel that McCleary has to play as their left-back isn't great defensively and I think Joey is too slow b...

Re: BFTG Fulham

A much better performance than expected. I thought Williams set the tone right from the off and that everybody (even Gunter) played well. Maybe we did overdo the time-wasting and really it didn't work from a time point of view (3 minutes added in the first and 5 in the second) but it did stop Fulham...

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Another embarrassing interview yesterday with Mourinho who thought his team had played well. If the old fat boy and the young big hope hadn't been so greedy they might have got something out of the game against an Arsenal side lacking in confidence but they forgot that it is a team game. Oh well, on...

BR I'm bemused that you think people should only post if they agree with people. Surely if GWL is entitled to make his point (which he is) , others are entitled to disagree with him.

Re: BFTG - Wigan

Simply, Reading are not the most entertaining team to watch in the division but they are - currently - the third most effective team at getting points/results in the league and at the end of the day that is what matters. It all depends on what definition you are using to fi the word "best"...

Re: BFTG - Forest

Gunter was in the side that got relegated, he was in the side for the last two useless seasons and this year he is in the side that has a dreadful record defending away from home-even the dimmest can surely see that there is a link there. Your stats fail in any event because , as Ian said, other fa...

Re: BFTG - Forest

That was embarrassing. Stam's fixation with a set style of play maybe his downfall. Tactically naive from the kick off. Is this Stam's way of telling the owners what investment is required. In order to achieve the goals he has set personally. All that was required was a single point to secure a pla...

Re: Who do you want to miss out on the play offs?

Agree with the general view-don't want to play Fulham and prefer Leeds to be the ones to miss out. Leeds seem to think that they should be at the top level because of history, size of club etc but IMHO both Huddersfield and Sheffield Wednesday have the greater history and if we don't make it then I ...

Re: Loan players

Dave Sutton On loan from Plymouth in late 1970s. Looked very good in central defence and looked like he was on the way but got a better offer from Huddersfield . Very good player at that level. It seemed to me back then if a player joined on loan he was 99% sure of joining,the loan was just a forma...

I'm not absolutely certain if he was marking him for that cross but if so, yes once in 90 minutes.


I'm not sure either. Not sure which of their centre backs was the one you meant.
