Re: BFTG ‘Ull (A)

They were the best team we have played all season but I still wasn't overly impressed with them, especially their defense . We matched them blow for blow for the majority of that game and were unlucky to come away with nothing. Could've easily been 2-0 up within 10 minutes. Sorry but I have to call...

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

Have we dodged the Martin bullet yet? Good to see somebody not creaming themselves over this possible transfer (you obviously know more about him than most from the Norwich days). I always liked Martin but over the past couple of years he looks to have got slower and wanting to buy more and more fr...

Re: In or Out? New poll.

This is about Stan and his fitness for office. What we need to remember is that if we had beaten Burton, Bristol City, Birmingham, Stevenage, Barnsley and Hull then we'd all be up Stam/Stan's arsehole right now. Yeah but we didn't. Anyway ... I'm swinging back to IN ... because the longer we wait, ...

Re: BFTG ‘Ull (A)

Was Stam interviewed after the game and, if so, what gems did he come out with this time? On the point of this year's standard in the division it is very difficult to compare any year to another. Last year it felt poor with moderate but efficient sides like Huddersfield and Brighton getting promoted...

Re: Which was worse

I agree with those that say this is the most boring - last season when he implemented the system it was fine (with the unexpected but ultimately very disappointing finale) because we thought it would evolve from "pass and watch" to "pass and move". and passing for passing's sake ...

Re: Moore or striker?

I don't think we can keep hold of Moore to be honest and nor should we. He is far better than us and a relegation battle in the Championship. He is a Premier League defender in my eyes and could easily get into any of the mid-table sides. If we had an offer over £12m or over the club will not say n...

Re: Rumour - Reise Allassani

It doesn’t matter if the signing worked or not, we still spent the money and smashed our transfer record, which kind of ruins your argument Smashed our transfer record for the second time in 7 months. As far back as I can remember (we're talking early 80's), our track record with spending big is pr...

Re: Rumour - Sam McQueen

Why not give Richards an extended run, everyone seems impressed by him? Nobody knows. But given there seems to be some sort of contract saying he must have 2 months rest for every senior game he plays, we need an actual LB to supplement him. :D :D I wonder if this means that Richards is off somewhe...

Re: BFTG - Stevenage

I am all for differing opinions but some of the blind support for Stam is ridiculous. There are so many weak minded people on Twitter who will back Stam no matter what. Jaap could come round their houses and take a dump on their pillow and they'd still worship him. Same usual supects too. People fr...

Re: BFTG - Stevenage

Call me an old cynic but do others not think that these two players were asked or told to tweet? As some others have said, couldn't the senior players be a bit braver and go to the boss and say that they feel it isn't working? Wherever I have worked both as employee and employer we have always been ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Stevenage (a) sponsored by an FA Cup run needed to save the season

McShane told the fans not to applaud the fans at full time, Van den Berg and Swift led the walking off. Gunter and Edwards only people to applaud the fans. I can barely blame those that walked off, constant booing at the moment making everything worse. Some of our fans need to look in a mirror, how...

Yep, Brum have been a shambles for some time...and yet someone on here said Brum still sold out the away end last night? :shock: In the summer we could have attracted a much wider base of players due to the playoff final and the promise of automatic promotion this season.

Re: Back from the shambles - Brum

Anyway, can we talk about how fcuking hilarious it was when Gunter thundered that ball into the Brum player's bollocks? It was probably the best thing I've seen all season. That just about sums Gunter up-dead 'ard when he is 40 yards away and when he wellied the ball into the crowd after the game. ...

Good to see that horrible cheat of a diver Ashley Young get his comeuppance today with a 3-match ban for his sneaky elbowing off the ball (which would have led to a penalty if the ref had seen it) against Southampton which followed a blatant push which was also unpunished in another recent game.

A brilliant performance by the player in the Old Firm derby today, one that his manager would have been proud to produce himself.
