Re: BFTG ‘Ull (A)

On that, was lovely to see David Prutton and Chris Powell don’t know the laws. On Sky highlights show both concluded it was ‘harsh’ on Hull and Vito only had ‘one hand’ on it...... :twisted: I never cease to be amazed by the fact the sport programmes pay players for their expertise on subjects they...

Re: Which was worse

Maybe Stam is suffering from us being ground down by a succession of dull managers, and we've hit the point where patience has worn so thin for many that it's snapped. Another thing that worries me is the boo-boys rarely offer up a list of candidates, who are available and would really want to come...

Re: Which was worse

Have we forgotten Rodgers, Adkins and Clarke? I never saw us win a league game under Rodgers, being away for the win v Blackpool, but back then we still had some decent players, and it wasn't as dull as it is now. Adkins' era was quite dull, but again, not a bad as this. There was certainly a spell...

Re: Which was worse

I think there have been plenty of much worse teams than the current one. I don't think there's ever been one more boring though - well at least not in the 30 years or so that I've been going. When you combine boring football with poor results, you do start to question why you even bother going to th...

Re: FA Cup Round 4 Draw

I'd love a trip up to Carlisle. For anyone whose been to a few grounds, it's an almost mythical one to "tick off". Just to have been to an away game there is like saying you've fought dragons, as other supporters swoon in shock...No! surely there's no-one alive who's been to a game that fa...

Re: BFTG - Stevenage

Would you be able to do your job to the best of your ability, if there was a bunch of people around your desk hurling abuse at you while you worked? More importantly, it's not about players being upset. It's about people believing that even if they give players abuse all game, those same players sh...

Re: BFTG - Stevenage

I don't like the use of "true fans". Absolutely this. Whilst it's all great and admirable they've actually said something (easily done from behind a computer screen) they're not actually taking full responsibility, but in fact furthering the disconnect with the fan base. Because someone b...

No there isn't. It's plain stupid.

What manager would agree to take on a job where he doesn't have a say on the tactics the team plays?

Why would any group of owners demand their manager plays a tedious style of football?

Re: Could Stam be contracted to his current style of play?

I would say it is more because they are Dutch and play an outdated style of football. If you look at the Dutch national side and their clubs performances or lack of in the Champions League you can see how far thay have fallen behind. Christ, not this crap again.

That we play shit football and now we’ve been found out? I'm not sure that we've been "found out". Teams learned to park the bus against us and stop us playing very quickly last year, and I don't think they are doing anything differently this season. We, on the other hand, and doing every...

Re: Back the boys and make some Noise

it’s just a very dull atmosphere to play in. Surely a big part of that is that the fans are bored, and are expecting the match to be rubbish, and aren't remotely enthused about the game as a result. At the moment going to watch Reading is like visiting relatives as Christmas - you know it'll be ted...

Re: The Non - League thread

I did hear a great instruction from the Grays manager at Aveley, shouting to his players - "Come on lads. Keep doing the same thing, but do something different."

Coaching at its finest.
