Re: MATCHWATCH : Leeds United (h) sponsored by Brian McDermott

Leeds lost 1-0 at QPR last week, they're probably about as good as we are right now. I'd say we're easily capable of winning this but I am fully expecting a point at least. I hope, like you, it is the Leeds of the QPR game-you have forgotten Leeds' win since then at play-off hopefuls Bristol City o...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Leeds United (h) sponsored by Brian McDermott

Dont Leeds play wingers on the wrong side so they cut in a lot? Maybe having a right footed Gunter at LB isn't the end of the world....... :oops: (i'd rather not though) Probably lining up with Harrison on the left who is left footed, and Hernandez on the right, who's right footed. However, looking...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wigan Athletic (h) sponsored by Nicky Forster

I think "luck" and "Likely outcome" are two different things here which have been melded into one. Whilst Barrow's shot yes, had an unlikely outcome - he did shoot from there and mean to do it, hence not a lucky goal, but an unlikely one. The overall chance of him scoring there i...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wigan Athletic (h) sponsored by Nicky Forster

certainly when I see this: 24th Feb 2019 - Rotherham (H) 1-1 draw despite 53% probability of a loss I do wonder how on earth they get their stats together. Rotherham had 2 shots on goal in the game, including their goal and about 1 other chance, or even 'situation'. Where as we had about 5 good cha...

Re: The Next 8 games - Make or Break Time

First, our opening six games partly distorts that picture. Leaving those aside it's 21 from 22, and that is after a tough run 1 New manager making us play better. Evidence, drawing 0-0 at QPR, good result by any standards, competing well at Manchester United, on the best win-run of any new Utd mana...

Re: What points will we finish on and position

I have us down for 22 points and finishing in 20th on GD - 45 points total -19 GD, but if it gets that close, then it's practically the flip of a coin. 19 Wigan 49 -20 20 Reading 45 -19 21 Millwall 45 -22 22 Rotherham 45 -25 23 Ipswich 36 -36 24 Bolton 34 -46 Bolton (A) - W Villa (H) - L Wednesday (...

Re: BFTG - Weds H

Mannone 5 Didnt have a whole tonne to do, but just never instills confidence at all Gunter 4 Why on earth was Blackett dropped for him? The guy cannot cross a road ffs. Also suspect defensivley, was beaten in the second half down the right far too much. Moore 6 At least has some semblance of quality...

Re: Palace(H) friendly Saturday July 28th

From memory W2 D2 L2 for the last six games of 2017-18, 8 points from 6 games and one of those draws away to Cardiff who got automatic promotion. W2 D2 L2 equates to a 61 point season, 12th last year Considering how bad it was going into those six games, that is a miracle Our actual last 6 results:...

Re: Arriving to games late

Most I have missed of a game from arriving late was about 35 mins, was living in Bristol at the time, and overslept, missed my train, and ended up getting to Reading at 3:15 before a taxi over to the Madjeski. Had missed Everton score early on, but managed to see us come back and win our first game ...

Re: BFTG Burton

Enjoyable evening at the Pirelli, first time I'd been there, and wow. I never realised just quite how far above their weight Burton are punching. Mannone - 5.5 Didn't really have much to do at all, can remember a tame long range effort and that's about it. Distribution wasn't bad. Gunter - 6.5 Took ...

tidus_mi2 Could have kept him over Clement I guess, although Clement looks like he'll be some player in a few years.


Does he? He's 21 already, and I'm not really sure I've seen much to convince me he's much better than anyone in our youth side who was pushing to be on the bench,

Re: Post Game Traffic

Moving the buses away from Northern Way has been a smart move as it's much safer. However why can't they load more than 1 bus at a time. Yesterday it took a good 15 mins to get boarded on by which time they had already let cars out of the car park and it was gone 10:30 before we were back in town. ...

Re: Heightened Security Measures

What's the point of searching everybody before the game when people are able to exit and re-enter the stadium freely during half time? A complete waste of time if they're not going to do it properly. I kind of agree with this, I bought freeze spray for a strained neck last week before the game with...
