Re: MATCHWATCH : Watford (h) sponsored by a difficulty to enthuse

Little bit of nonsense trivia - Ben Wilmot makes his debut for Watford v RFC, as he did for Stevenage v RFC - both debuts coming in 2018. (Sorry, Stevenage FULL debut - he'd come on as a sub once previously).

Re: MATCHWATCH : Watford (h) sponsored by a difficulty to enthuse

Looks like 5/3/2 tonight with Moore, Ilori and O’Shea starting and Gunter and Richards as wingbacks. The three in midfield are Swift, Kelly and Bacuna with Meite and McNulty up top. Walker starts. Possibly 3-5-2? We haven't played 5-3-2 for a while as far as i can tell. Looks like last 5-3-2 was ac...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Aston Villa (a) sponsored by hoping it's 1959/1960 all over again

Villa's starting line up cost over £33,000,000, with their bench costing another £12,000,000. That doesn't include any loan fees for the 3 loanees in the 18 man squad! What's happening with regard to FFP - although their home league attendances are very impressive.

Steve Bruce's managerial record v RFC is P12 W5 D3 L4 F17 A15, so he just holds the edge over us. As Villa manager is 2 wins apiece with Villa scoring 7 to our 6.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Aston Villa (a) sponsored by hoping it's 1959/1960 all over again

If Liam Moore starts tomorrow it will be his 100th start for RFC. Paul McShane needs 3 more starts to make his 100 - wonder if he'll manage it given his "performance" on Wednesday? Funnily enough Jordan Obita only needs 3 starts to make his 150th. Surprisngly he is our 3rd highest starting...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by 3 league wins in 2018

The OS heradline makes my blood boil "Bodvarsson brace earns Royals away point" - NO YOU oxf*rd - "McShane's death wish throws away 2 points" is the accurate headline to use!

Oh well, on to Villa Park next - where Villa have just been thumped by Brentford, so they'll be champing at the bit to put that result to rights!! Happy days!

Can't seem to edit my last post - but Villa got a last minute equaliser so maybe they won't be quite so up for it Saturday after all!

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by 3 league wins in 2018

Wow, that was total, utter, rubbish. Two AWFUL teams. We looked as though we fielded 11 strangers who had never played together before. Calamity McShane must surely be dropped for Ilori? Only Bodvarsson looked to have any interest in this game. Without Moore we would have been dead and buried. Meite...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bolton Wanderers (h) sponsored by Notlob is Bolton backwards

Why did we sack Stam again? Because there's no way we'd be in a worse position right now under him Except we'd be in the third tier ... but I take your point. I don't believe that. We only stayed up because all of the bottom 5 were exceptionally terrible. We only ended up needing 5 points from 8 ga...

Re: Reading v Bolton Match 4 Prediction League

No idea of a possible score, but just wanted to point out that Parky already has 706 managerial matches under his belt, with Saturday' being his 707th. It's incredible to think he has been a league manager for 15½ years! Where does the time go?! Also he has played 5 matches v RFC as manager and has ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (h) sponsored by a new hope

Mmm. Better than just about any game you care to mention from last season. Can now see why Walker was bought. Yiadom and Richards looked good, as did Ilori surprisingly. Seem to remember we lost our opener at home 1-2 at the start of 2005/06 season! Just saying! :wink: No way Derby deserved 3 points.
