Re: Last 8 games

I'm expecting the top 6 to not change much.

Brighton will win the league, Newcastle 2nd, Udders 3rd, Leeds 4th, us 5th and Fulham 6th, Weds 7th, Preston 8th and Norwich 9th

Re: If RFC don't make the play-offs....

To fall out now would be a failure. Going up would be great again. This squad are far better prepared tha McD's imho. And just perhaps the Thais wouldnt sell for a year or two. Each year it gets harder as whoever comes down has so much money. Newcastle champs, Huddersfield to pip Brighton, us to be...

Re: If RFC don't make the play-offs....

What's everyone's opinion if we fail to make the playoffs now in this position :wink: I'd be gutted personally based on how longs left and the gap between us and 6th/7th but at the same time our record in the playoffs is complete gash. Surely we will win them this time even if we are a long way from...

Re: Rival Watch

I'd really like to see Huddersfield do it as well. They'd be a breath of fresh air to the premier league. Brighton are a boring club, they think they're massive when they're actually even more tinpot than we are. Soon as they built their lego bowl people swarm. Without their prima donna ground they'...

Re: Sheffield Wednesday (A) Predictions

Hola mi amigos. Greetings from Sheffield. Should be an interesting encounter and one which is certainly hard to predict before hand, although I suppose that is the nature of the Championship. Worrying thing for ourselves is our absolutely wretched injury list. Pretty much our best 5-6 players were ...

Re: Brian Tevreden to Derby??

This is precisely the reason why we were always better off with a more modest management structure in the shape of Brian McDermott. These big name bosses as soon as they start doing well they're gone in a flash. If Stam heads out the door too then all the recent progress made in the past 6 months w...

Re: Rival Watch

Great result but also suggests the Blackburn home game might not be as straightforward (if anyone thought it would be) as it might. Of course not. Theres no easy games in this league and Blackburn's team has some quality players. They'll stay up and thought after we nicked a win up there that they ...

Re: Back from listening to the game v preston on the radio

I have to agree with the points made about Grabban and Mutch, they just upset the balance of our team too much. In fact, we haven't won away in 4 games since they joined us (coincidence) and only won 2 home games from 4. Stam needs to drop both of them to the bench and only play them when we are cha...

Re: Back from listening to the game v preston on the radio

I was actually at the game. Not as bad as the scoreline suggests. First was a mistake from Blackett. Second was the most blatant handball I've ever seen. Couldn't really see the third, but was game over by then. Even before he scored Barkhuizen was the stand out player. Great touch and just looked ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by WarmUpGate

If Fulham manage to beat Blackburn on Tuesday, they'll be up in 6th and play again on Sat. Not losing on Friday is surely the most important thing, as we all know that we'll lose on the TV to Leeds....At the start of the season I said I'd be happy with a top half finish. I stick by that, but I mean...

Re: Newcastle (H) Team and Predictions

I would stick obita in front of blackett. i.e play them both. The main issue and this is why blackett gets slammed is because beerens doesn't do any defensive work at all, so time and time again blackett is left exposed. So while he isn't great all the time i don't actually blame him that much for ...

Re: BFTG Wolves

Just a thought, maybe we don't need to play well in a lot of these games to win but yet even though we can up the tempo by a couple of gears we still grind it out. Yes the football isn't the best but so what? It works and we are a good side still. Tbf I've only been impressed with a handful of sides...

Re: Who's up for Highbury next season?

I like underdogs who do it.

I was happy for Burton and Yeovil when they came up and will be the same for Fleetwood if they do. Weren't they a non-league side just 5 years ago?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Newcastle United (h) sponsored by damage limitation

I would be amazed if Newcastle win 3 away games on the spin to promotion opposition. Yet stranger things have happened. I was at the away fixture and thought the score massively flattened them and thought we should have scored a couple more. This is definitely the hardest home game we've had this se...
