Re: New Manager

And George Graham and Howard Wilkinson are more successful than Martin O'Neill. Would you suggest them? No I absolutely wouldn’t. But there’s a reason O’Neill has consistently been in management since 1987. He worked wonders with Wycombe, Leicester and Celtic then built a brilliant team at Villa fi...

Sheffield United last season I believe.

Yeah - checking back we had those two weirdly low attendances (also v Bolton), way below even the number of season tickets sold.

Re: New Manager

He sounds a talented guy, but it would be incredibly hard to implement his plans in a badly struggling teams that's got no heart when he can't even speak English. He might be exactly the right manager, at exactly the wrong time. I don't get this hang up, he speaks a little, but not fluent. Bielsa d...

Re: New Manager

Talking of Castro, I've been talking to Portuguese fans a bit today. He is someone who's really dedicated to long term projects, and that's how he picks his clubs. He spent most of his career in Porto's academy building the foundations for some players that are starting to appear now: Rúben Neves, ...

Re: BFTG Sheffield

To not have a single shot on target in 90 minutes at home against another Championship side is unforgivable. Players and coaching staff should be ashamed. Never mind "on target", did we have an actual proper shot in the match, at all? The BBC stats say we had six shots, but I'm really str...

Re: New Manager

I've been reading some of the comments about the potential managerial appointment of Luis Castro and it's a typical one from those that fear what they do not know. I follow Reading and FC Porto. I have done for the past 26 years and I know my fair share about Portuguese football. Portuguese footbal...

Re: FA cup 3rd round draw

very likely to be on TV as well considering there were no other real noticeable ties Even the Stam link stretched credibility for the tie two years ago being picked for TV. What would the angle be this time round? Fourth time we've played Man United in the FA cup in the last 11 years ( all at Old T...

Re: Clement

I still think there's potential in Ilori, but as Moore's understudy. You want one cultured one physical... sadly our physical ones are slow and shit. Ilori, to me, is a player who thinks he's a lot better than he actually is. He strolls around the pitch looking like he believes he's Franco Baresi, ...

Pretty amazing really, especially as it's rained all day in Bracknell, which would have put a few off.

Re: Ex Players

Dave Kitson was on Talksport yesterday morning. I only caught a bit of it, maybe it is recorded somewhere. The presenter was a Cambridge fan so was asking him about his time there and his move to us. DK said that Cambridge had accepted a £1M offer from Cardiff and 1 other for him, then ITV Digital ...

Re: The Non - League thread

Didn't see a non-league game this weekend, but went with a mate up to Carlisle. He'd already been to Carlisle, so while I went to Brunton Park, he drove a couple of miles down the road to watch Carlisle City in a North West Counties League Division One Cup tie v Eccleshall. He was one of only 49 fan...

I recently found some copies of Elm Park Disease, plus a multitude of Taking the Biscuits, in a box among programmes I'd stuck up in the loft.

They must be worth at least 1p to an avid fanzine collector.

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Was there not a short-lived fanzine from circa '97 called Taking the Biscuit ? Which also leads me to remember The Whiff which I used to love. If the creators of that post on here then please give yourselves huge pats on the back. Taking the Biscuit lasted several years, and was arguably the best f...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

I'm quite enjoying being one of the more hated clubs in the league/country. Sort of like the anti-Millwall as it were I don't think we are one of the more hated clubs. It's simply a case of emotional little darlings wailing about something they think justifies them being upset as opposed to being u...

It was £35 when I went for the worst view in the championship. And whilst Portman Road is an old ground it’s hardly Villa Park and a cauldron of noise. Bearing in mind the utter trip we’ve played the last two seasons it’s amazing anyone bothers to turn up! Soulless identikit bowl seems to be code f...

This game has, believe it or not, now been made all ticket. https://twitter.com/BracknellTownFC/status/1059490344008667138 Apparently the limit is 1000 tickets, and Bracknell have already sold over 600.
