Re: BFTG Forest Home

Zip wrote: We looked much more balanced today. There was a better shape to the team. We still overplay but overall it was much better as we pressed Forest and won far more 50/50 challenges than we usually do. Given the talent in this squad we are in a ridiculous position.


Couldn't agree more.

Re: BFTG QPR

Crikey, I've read a great deal of bollocks on Hobnob over the years but I think the assassination of Swift must be right up there. Anyone with half a football brain and who went to 'Wall and QPR can see that Swift (and Rino) was the MotM in each game. Swift is the one player with real quality, visi...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queens Park Rangers sponsored by the Simod Cup started here

Tbf, there’s a lot of players who played who have only recently returned from injury and / or not played much recently Ilori, O Shea, Richards, Aluko, Meite - barely played in the last month, though Richards has had 3 on the bounce now and seems to be improving To play that well at QPR with that li...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queens Park Rangers sponsored by the Simod Cup started here

Regardless of result this is very positive - clear impact from the manager’s style of play and not just meaningless possession but a large number of shots. The future is bright under Jose! This is no less a reasonable perspective than we get from our resident wrist slitters eagerly posting their pr...

Re: CONFIMRED José Gomes

What would 'complete loss of face and belly up' constitute to you now? Again, you consistently said (under Clement) that this is a long term re-building project, there's no magic wand, we may have to drop down a division or two...and that you wouldn't have minded if we did. Relegation. While watchi...

Re: New Manager

I retract the word sh*t , but still think the rubbish food and drinks at ripoff prices , rip off parking at the club is poor The parking at the Stadium has been a rip off. However you have other options. I use the Mereoak park and ride and think it’s an excellent service. The price is £5.50 return ...

Re: New Manager

Whoever we sign will be a high stakes gamble given our league position but trashing Gomes in favour of the current managers of Bolton and Wycombe Wanderers amounts to little more than fear of the unknown.

Throwing a Pardew into the hat would be a game changer..............................

Really surprised by the calls for Bruce. Reshapes teams by spending tonnes wherever he goes (figures in €s from TransferMarkt) 09/10 - Sunderland - 13th in Prem. Gross spend €46m, net €25m. 10/11 - Sunderland - 10th in Prem. Gross €29m net -€13m (sold Darren Bent for €22m). 11/12 - Sunderland - sac...

Re: New Manager

If we're looking at former players/managers, Pardew would be the only one for me. Many oceans have flowed under the bridge since he did the dirty and flounced off to West Ham. If he's still not working is that because he hasn't had a decent offer or isn't intersted? Would he be interested in coming...

This is the burning question for me, too.

Re: New CEO

I don't see the need for Howe to be anyone's "mentor" He was the right man for the job throughout our most successful era and is surely a safe pair of hands in which to entrust the club in the owners absence who, so far, have precious little to show for their large and on going investment ...
