Re: BFTG - Rov'rum

Japp Stam was one of the best defenders to grace the Premiership and is first season in management is already drawing top flight attention.

By contrasting his views on our peristant boo boys with yours it's quite clear one of you is delusional to say the least.

Re: BFTG - Rov'rum

Playing two different front 4's in the past three days made a lot of sense. Playing Williams in the "quarterback "role made no sense but credit to Stam for changing it at half time. Having Kelly moving the ball quickly and having Williams and McCleary playing higher up the pitch changed t...

Re: BFTG - Rov'rum

The first half an hour you could tell Rotherham had enjoyed the extra day, we looked a bit leggy in places. The front four today were totally fresh............... And totally disjointed first half. Jaaps fault. He had a tactical nightmare of a first half. Are you serious :? Over the Easter I recall...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

There is a reason that our attendances are awful despite doing well in the league. Yep, this town is full of glory hunting twats who would sooner head to Wembley in their droves to watch a meaningless cup final than enjoy a successful promotion campaign. They'd sooner pay to watch a home game again...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Aston Villa (a) sponsored by prayer mats everywhere

Brilliant 7-1 then our first ever win at Villa park amazing Just goes to show how utterly unpredictable and weird Reading are away from home this season. Villa have a superb squad of talent and will certainly be challenging for automatic next season yet Reading have turned up with a very different ...

Re: What do we need when we're in the prem?

I don't like the wording of the title, can we change "when" to "if"? I'd say we'd need (just for the starting 11); GK RB CB CM LW/RWf ST X2 At least. On that basis, perhaps we should just order a large skip for 30th May and off load all of last seasons squad should it have the t...

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

This is starting to remind me of Tommy Burns infamous January transfer window when he brought in 6? Scottish players who were mostly dire except for Grant Brebner but played them regardless. For all Japp Stam's success this season, he appears to have fallen down the same rabbit hole. Mick Gooding sa...

Re: Season ticket renewals 17/

In but only the 4th family member to sign up :shock: Have to concur with those pointing out that such offers are the norm when appropriate. It should be obvious to those in possession of modest financial expertise that the close season is not a good time for cashflow and most clubs try to smooth thi...

Re: BFTG Newcastle (H)

Very harsh. We were okay, nowhere near utter dross. Improved much more than "a bit" in the second and domin8ed - actually a lot to do with Williams and Obita more than G-Mac I thought, who only really threatened in the last 10 minutes. Kelly had a right shocker, though. I'm with jd82 here...

Re: Rival Watch

Wigan were dire and didn't look like they'd score if they played all weekend.

Having said that, Wednesday were a shadow of the side that won at Newcastle

Re: Best team selection and formation now ?

with not remembering anything about Popa I agree that he's still an unknown for most fans and that, therefore, no one has put him in their team. However, those U Tube compilations make him look like Glen Little on steroids and if this proves to be reality, while he still has a pulse, he' ll be eith...

Re: Best team selection and formation now ?

I think it's obvious what our strongest team is now in light of recent acquisitions. It is the following: GK: Al Habsi RB: Gunter (Best RB in the league, no dispute) LB: Obita CB: Moore CB: McShane CDM: Evans CM: Williams CM: Swift CM: Kelly CF: Grabban CF: Kermorgant No GMac? :? +1 Leaving GMac ou...
