Re: MATCHWATCH : Huddersfield Town v Reading, Play Off Final, 29 May 2017 (Wembley)

Anyone up for breaking into the stadium and rearranging the bags to spell Tinpot ? That'll be a challenge, have you ever tried rearranging the letters in ROYALS to read TINPOT? Wish Reading were still known as the Biscuitmen though, much more impressive and could "bend" round the corners ...

Re: Current Form Vs Odds

Huddersfield seriously threatened to go up automatically for a while. We did not. And their end of season record owes a fair bit to the weakened line-ups they fielded in the final games. I think the teams are evenly matched, but they offer more of an attacking threat than we do. However, we are far...

Re: An analysis of promoted teams in the play-off era

Highlights what a loss Sidwell was. Doesn't highlight the difference complacency setting in can be. It does show how important good scouting and transfers are. We simply didn't make the transition to PL quality signings and relied on an aging team that had lost a key cog. Fae, Halford, Duberry, Ros...

Re: An analysis of promoted teams in the play-off era

I think our poor defensive record and poor goal difference gets skewed by the odd away thrashings we've had. Otherwise we're a fairly consistent side. What I think would be more interesting as a Stat, which he probably didn't do as not easy to get the stats, is is there any correlation between amou...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

They could write a dissertation and upload a three hour film and there'd still be people complaining about what they said, what they hadn't said and the week after that there was radio silence. I mean what is there to say? They want us to play in the PL. They think we're a good investment. That's it.

Re: May the best team win!

In the build-up to Wembley 2011, I had totally convinced myself I wasn't that fussed about winning as I wasn't all that taken with the whole Premier League experience, the result being that I wouldn't be all that disappointed if we lost as it was all new to Swansea following their gradual and "...

Re: A New Song for Yann Kermorgant

On the subject of songs, I was just thinking about 5 Parkinsons and whether we could manage a version using a teams worth of current players.

My very half arsed partial effort is

7 Roy Beerens
6 Struggle Pigs
5 Paul McShanes
4 Liam Moores
3 Jordan Os
2 Chrissy Gs

Re: Stay off the pitch!

Sadly, a lot of our younger monkey-see-monkey-do bellends will have seen it and decided they should copy,... so if we win I think there's a pretty decent chance we'll follow suit in classless imitation.

Re: Huddersfield fan here

This is getting a bit silly now. I think our clubs should just get on with it and fuck, we seem to love each other so much.

If the teams get married can we both go up?

Right back at you Terrier.

I was desperate for you to pip Brighton into second a few months ago. More than happy to see you make it if we can't.

Re: Diving Bans

I kind of think the opposite - it needs to be harsh enough that you don't risk it. Yeah, if you penalise the obvious ones and leave the dubious ones, it's essentially just creating a system of encouraging players to get better at disguising diving. Whereas if you shrug and accept sometimes you'll g...

Re: Diving Bans

Yeah - I think they would only be able to ban players for clear, ridiculous dives. I can't see how they can ban if there is some doubt or a player dives out the way to avoid a clattering.
