Re: BFTG Villa

Decent all round, without looking too menacing. Defending has improved massively, and confidence is back. Credit to jose, in a short space of time we've turned a corner. 2 months ago villa would've won that easily. Um, last August we drew with a Baldock 93 minute pen. Lovely day out then and all th...

Re: January Outs

Pleased to see the overpaid failures being shipped out. Regardless of whether we're Champ or League 1 next season, I'm excited that we'll have a fresh new squad, hopefully full of academy players , Novakovich and hopefully some of the loanees we currently have on the books. Our recruitment has been ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Matt Miazga

Gomes seems to have targetted the spine of the team and brought in 5 players who, on paper, are better suited to what he wants to do. I'm impressed that in 1 month, he's been able to assess the squad, make changes, bring in what appear to be targetted signings and instill a bit of positivity. It's ...

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

This would be a pointless signing IMO. Bearing in mind we only have 18 games left and we play one up front and we have Bod and Meite (if he recovers) who have both done ok when fit I think it would send the wrong message to our contracted players. It would effectively say that the new manager felt ...

Re: Rumour - Joel Pereira

to play the system Jose wants, he needs a keeper who is good with the ball at his feet I suspect Anssi isnt a bad keeper in the traditional sense, but he is awful distribution and passing wise. I can't see him lasting long Dont dislike Ansi - but he cant kick, and doesnt command the box / flaps a l...

Re: CONFIMRED José Gomes

JG is bringing 4 backroom staff with him. So guess that means curtains for Gibbs, Beasant, Gilkes etc. unless they’re planning on over staffing in that area as well. I think this is the major worry, the core of the club is being eroded. Such a strong core who have managed to steer us to the heights...

Re: New Manager

You say that, but they weren’t exactly queuing up to manage us in the prem. Clarke seemed to get the job instantly, and Stam (who was a managerial no one) turned us down initially. Let’s face it, we’re not an overly attractive proposition for anyone. Really? I'm pretty sure that a six figure salary...
