Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

He's probably as good as we'll get. Good record, but concerned that I think he has only scored 1 all season, in quite a few minutes on the pitch To be fair, the way the team is lining up and playing at the moment, Thierry Henry in his prime would struggle to score goals Sorry you class 5 starts and...

Hilarious isn't it. I quite like Martin. He's been a good champ level striker for a while now.

Re: Rumour - Sam McQueen

Why is anyone against this? A young, decent LB on loan is exactly what we need. He was trusted enough last season to play in 13 premier league games..

Re: Rumour - Reise Allassani

yep thats a fair summary. The couple of games he looked best were when he played right up against the FB on the right wing It confuses me because Barrow continues to do this, and seems currently to be our only threat. Is Stam telling Aluko to wander round in CM? If not, why is he being allowed to d...

Re: Rumour - Reise Allassani

I like Ilori personally. Think he has deserved far more game time than he has had. He was great back end of last year, and you'd expect him to step in if Moore does go Aluko I've very little time for. But he has been far from the only one who has massively underperformed this year Fair. McCleary ha...

Re: Rumour - Reise Allassani

It doesn’t matter if the signing worked or not, we still spent the money and smashed our transfer record, which kind of ruins your argument Smashed our transfer record for the second time in 7 months. As far back as I can remember (we're talking early 80's), our track record with spending big is pr...

Re: Lewis Grabban to return...

Hell no. He was pretty poor whilst here the first time. There's no reason to think he'll do better when we're worse. Just because he scored some goals at Sunderland doesn't mean he'll do the same here. Yeah but so would Messi be if played as a CB. um.. I reckon he would do fine at cb in the champio...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

oxf*rd travesty we've let Hyam and Dickie go when spending millions on Ilori and Blackett and then not playing them at centreback anyway. Ilori and Blackett must be the biggest waste of money ever spent by RFC, then along comes Aluko of course! "Hello who is calling?" "My name is Eme...

Re: Genuine question - how did the pundits know we were likely to be fighting relegation?

They didn't? As far as I'm aware it was the same old predictable stuff that anyone could have come up with: Villa, Derby, Boro etc. It was Prutton the season before who ended up getting it spectacularly wrong I'm sure someone would remember us being tipped for the drop as it would have been a balls...

Re: Back from the shambles - Brum

Thought any team other than Birmingham would have scored more against us. For the second goal first McShane fannys about on the ball and gives it away then Clement does it. Is this the new dimension added to our style of play?!? Instead of short, quick passing and retaining possession we have decide...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (h) sponsored by 5 games without a win

Think that's probably it for Stam. I don't think it's a good decision but the season has been dire and the last few games have been incredibly poor. He must be gone after this.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (h) sponsored by 5 games without a win

I have honestly seen a better standard of crossing at Irish schools level.. for a team that plays a lone striker you would have thought the ability to cross would be high on the priority list.

Re: In or Out? New poll.

In for the time being. The last few games have been appalling and I imagine most fans would love to see the back of Stam but I think a change mid way with morale as it is would be a poor choice.
He can improve us.
