Re: Financial Fair Play

From what I’ve heard, our perilous financial situation is going to scupper our chances of signing any of the loan players :cry: Surely if we sell off the likes of Swift and Aluko there may be some funds available. Nope - the black hole is back. Haven't you heard? It's all over the news. If you look...

Re: Birmingham points deduction?

Winston Biscuit They play West Brom Leeds, Shef Utd & Derby next, then play 4 of the current bottom 6 after that to finish the season.

Re: Sensible Option: Adam Federici

Agree that Feds would be a significant upgrade on what we have now, but think it's probably quite rare to loan in a first choice keeper in January? You're basically telling the existing 2/3 keepers that they have no future at the club. Regarding Alex Pearce (as also mentioned on this thread) - he ha...

Re: The Non - League thread

Horrible area, granted - but it's a decent little ground tbf. Arguably better quality than the Camrose, and easily big enough to cope with the circa 3-400 supporters they get on an average week. Might struggle when your Lutons or your Herefords come to town, but I feel that Basingstoke may be playi...

Re: The Non - League thread

Hi mate, Luton are in the upper echelons of League 1 and Hereford are struggling at the foot of the Conference North. Basingstoke won't be playing either any time soon so I'm not sure of what your point is. They played Hereford in March of this year, but Luton I give you - I was just thinking of a ...

Might struggle when your Lutons or your Herefords come to town, but I feel that Basingstoke may be playing at one or even two levels lower in the coming seasons, unfortunately - so these 'big clubs' will be few and far between.

The aim is to commence playing their games the following season, at the ...

Great appointment For Basingstoke, Martin is a top manager who I believe will manage in the football league one day 'Stoke must be pinching themselves really.

Re: Clement

Regarding the flat corner / hitting the first man - i used to remember that Ian Harte used to do that 2/3 times a game (to groans from half the ground) before the next one allowed Pearce/Morrison to score.

I don't have the stats to hand, but I feel like it resulted in thousands of goals.

Re: Thanks Yann and goodbye.

tidus_mi2 Certainly contrasts well with Roberts who decided to milk his contract despite being crocked


I hear ya, but I reckon there would still have been a hefty settlement figure in the region of 50-75% of the remaining contract value.

Re: Weekend Football

Guardiola really has done a great job with Sterling this season. He looks a proper player again. Agreed to some extent - he still doesn't half miss some sitters though. A slight exaggeration, but he could/should have had a hat-trick (or more) in pretty much every game I've seen him play this season...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Ipswich Town (a) sponsored by a Steve Richardson goal

eddiegrundy The Reading team coach has been involved in a collision on leaving Portman Road. Someone has impaled their car in the rear of the coach. Car looks a mess but coach looks not too bad. Don't know if anyone has been hurt but expect all on coach to be OK.


Sounds like an absolute car crash.
