Re: BFTG Millwall Home

Danny Guthrie deserves absolutely no sympathy from anyone. What a totally mad thing to suggest. Am not suggesting sympathy for Guthrie, my point was simply a footballing one about playing in midfield. If you have ever played there you will know that it is very much about moving the ball on to playe...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

The French league is a joke, can't see the other clubs standing for the PSG dominance much longer. Didn't Lyon win at Man City recently? :wink: I had no idea that fixture was played in the French league........ It is just an example of the capability of a team other than PSG. Has anything happened ...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Bayern won 3-1 at Wolfsburg at the weekend despite Arjen Robben being sent off midway through the second half. But the leaders kept up their pace Moenchengladbach, Werder Bremen and Dortmund all won, the latter 4-0 from just 4 shots on target, including a goal for Jadon Sancho, and another one for ...

Re: BFTG Millwall Home

I feel a bit for Swift . As with Guthrie and Norwood before him he suffers from the lack of movement from other midfielders and strikers who don't readily make themselves available for a pass. Baldock does make some good runs but otherwise players are too static and the ball ends up too often with o...

Re: Tim Dellor

In most other areas of the country the local radio football presenters are close to their clubs and are usually up-to-date on injuries etc. ahead of a game. Whether it is the fault of the club or the fault of BBCRB presenters I don't know but yesterday they were behaving like us uninformed fans in s...

Re: BFTG Millwall Home

I know it doesn't behoove folks on here to enjoy when things work out for us but how anyone can say there was doubt about the penalty is beyond me. Admittedly I didn't see it in real time as I was queuing for a pint but seeing it on the limited highlights it was as clear as you like, although it wa...

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

Hmm, interesting. Now obviously I know Sweet fa about football and don’t watch an awful lot of the pro game these days but I think Trippier is a brilliant defender. No one ever gets passed him, he’s quick, athletic and times his tackles brilliantly and cleanly. Totally disagree-a typical modern-day...

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

Game should be on the Sky red button as there is a Championship game being televised.
Much will depend upon how we handle Lukiewic (sp?) and the lively Jota.

Re: BFTG Millwall Home

I think if Millwall had carried on with the passing game where they dominated for the first 25 minutes we could well have lost the game but fortunately they didn't. 26 attempts plus 14 corners for an away side is exceptional especially for a side near the relegation places but goals win matches of c...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

You were talking about management exposure at Championship level, you can't bring time as an assistant manager or League 1 / 2 into that. You've taken no account of club circumstance. Colchester, Bradford and Bolton were all very successful jobs for Parky yet you seem to want to put the mist negati...

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

Luke Shaw earns £190,000 per week under his new contract for 5 years so that is something like £50 million over that period for a left-back who was out of the game for over a year injured. IMHO he is not bad going forward but can't defend-same comment for Rose-but I suppose full-backs are no longer ...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

ID hate Parkinson as manager, because I like him so much, it would make any dry spell in results that much more upsetting. It was the same with McDermott's second spell at the club. I also dont buy that 'even with their problems' that his position at Bolton proves he's just what we want. Parky has ...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

He has done a great job at Bolton with absolutely no funds. Would be happy for him to become our new manager and he would certainly have a greater connection with the fan base than either Stam or Clement. Agreed. Watching Bolton on TV recently and they are much more of a passing side than posters h...

There's a difference between an exiled Reading FC supporter and someone who goes and "watches most Fulham games". Seriously wtf? M9, I haven't 'supported' Reading for years, if ever, I'm just a casual fan. Only really went regularly in at Elm Park, and then in League One at the Madejski. ...

Re: Solutions to problems (instead of moaning)

I think that Clement should just be allowed to get on with the job this season. Let managers manage and don't worry about league positions unless we are under serious threat of relegation. Don't you think we are under threat of relegation? No one gets relegated in October. Of course they don't but ...

Re: Solutions to problems (instead of moaning)

How about doing the HT talk on the pitch, it might give them the view that the first half didn`t end. Seem to remember Hull doing it some years back. Rather than that, what about waiting till the very last moment to come back out and hit the ground running, meaning that the opposition has had to ha...

Re: BFTG West Brom

The late, great Bill Shankly always said that before signing a player he wanted to know as much about him and his character as he could discover. He said that anybody could see a player's ability on the pitch so there was nothing difficult in spotting a good player but it was so important to know m...

Re: BFTG West Brom

This is why it's unfair to blame the manager when clearly the squad is total dross and not one combination of the players is the solution. Mannone was rightly dropped when he was but now he might be put back in. What's Clement to do when his keeper is watching crosses go over his head at 1-0 up awa...
