Re: CONFIMRED - John Swift

Yeah I think the extra games and the exposure from the tournament will do him good and help his confidence He had a long break mid season and I'm hoping he'll be back to last years early season form come August He showed some really good touches in the most recent game and appears to have regained ...

Re: WHO THINKS THIS IS A LOAD OF BOL...................KS

I am probably remembering incorrectly but wasnt he a bit shite at Derby? No support from the board, I believe. Loyalty has bred loyalty at Burton. I'm just recalling something about the players not liking him and losing to Forest in the cup? Yup. They would, of course, be contributory factors. His ...

Re: WHO THINKS THIS IS A LOAD OF BOL...................KS

Nigel Clough deserves an honourable mention for keeping Burton in the Championship on limited resources. Definitely. Also achieved previously with them by getting them into the league. Not been a slouch at Sheff Utd or Derby either, seems to be consistently reliable wherever he goes and produces te...

This can be the thread where you post all your cheesy music to express how you're feeling ahead of the big game.

Which song explains how you are feeling?

Re: The Forgotten

Burns era striker forced to retire early. Stocky bloke. Sean Evers? Rumour has it Luton's insurers were just about to pay out on him when we came along with a cheeky £500,000 bid. Wikipedia reckons he made 18 appearances for us which is 18 more than I remember. Sean Evers was described as a 'box to...

Watching Alloa v Brechin live on BBC Alba. Odd channel, meant to be in Scottish Gaelic but because no-one actually speaks it outside of the remotest parts all the interviews are in English. And yes it's just like the Fast Show's Channel 9 sketches in terms of commentary where every few seconds you ...
