Re: Opposition fans back from the game

LOL at people worrying that the possession stats don't add up to 100. It makes little sense for them to add up to 100.
Perfectly possible for neither side to have possession of the ball at times. It's only a guesstimate anyway......

Re: Jaap's Radio Comments

You would have had to listen very hard to hear many boos at half time, certainly they weren't ringing round the stadium. The main booing effort was certainly the seemingly odd switch of Kelly for Illori. Kelly looked our most inventive and busy player so,it did seem odd, but I guess the intent was t...

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

Been stuff on it on the OS.
Sadly no games at the Mad Stadium this year, unlike the Hertha game last year.
Will go to the Bayern game at Wycombe and maybe the Arsenal game at Borehamwood.
Shame we don't play the European teams away, would definitely have gone to Munich for that one....

Re: Conor Shaughnessy rated?

Must admit can only recall seeing him in midfield. Never heard of him being close to a firstbteam squad and we are very well blessed with good young centre backs. Moore, Blackett and Illori are only a couple of years older than him before you include Andresson, Osho, Dickie etc so looks like. Living...

Re: Shocking and disgusting behaviour

Based on previous examples I suspect there is every chance some of those responsible have commented on the thread. Was certainly the case after al Habsi/ Arsenal. I can accept to some extent the 'lads just being lads' argument for some behaviour. Marching in a gang through a strange town making a ra...

Re: BFTG Swansea

It is odd how people can see games so differently. For me Jakkola never looked uncomfortable, there were a couple of occasions when he had no options for an easy pass out but he never panicked, didn't do anything daft and looks far more solid with his feet than Al Habsi did. Swift did some excellent...

Re: We should have a 2nd Screen

We should aircraft style personal screensinstalled in the back of all the seats... Don't worry about not being able to see the screen Bobby, there's nothing to see.

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

Failure is of course relative. They have all,failed to make the grade with us. They've all failed to make the grade in the Championship (even Cooper isn't starting many games at one of the weakest clubs in the division). They've not failed in terms of having jobs as professional footballers but 3 o...

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

Bit tough to blame Dolan's replacement for quality of players, he's hardly had a chance to influence recruitment or coaching. The players coming through are the product of Dolan's work. Of course the bottom line is there ISN'T an issue. Expecting to produce one first team player a year is probably q...

Re: The idiots of Twitter thread

WSC is hardly a fanzine any more and just about the only football magazine about that asks serious questions about the state of the game. The Coventry Talbot kit was designed to circumvent the ban on shirt advertising in the early 80's, to the point that Jimmy Hill considered changing the club's na...

Re: The idiots of Twitter thread

The Coventry kit would be fairly common knowledge to any football fan over 45. The Carlisle kit was mentioned in an article in this month's WSC. Point 1 is clearly incorrect. Is WSC still going ? Must be 25 years or more, the halcyon days of the fanzine were great. Spent many a happy afternoon in S...

Sincere apologies Maff, confused you with Muskrat. It's the M that did it !

Having confused you it completely coloured my reading of your post with I took to be written in a scathing, sarcastic tone. Sorry.... rereading it I agree with much of your thinking

The issue is, he's got absolutely no basis for his ramblings against SJM and NH, and his insistence that we have rejected lucrative naming rights bids because of SJM's ego is so far wide of the mark. These two men didn't just take us to the next level, they took us up about three levels, and in SJM...

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

Not sure of your point Maff You seem to think the ex manager of Jong Ajax doesn't believe in young players. Despite there being no evidence to support this. Are the current 18-19 year olds further from the first team than the 20-21 year olds who weren't up to it ? Strangely most of them are right no...

The Richmond tenancy (we've never had a ground share with anyone !) was very short lived and I can't believe any one cared too much about hurting their feelings !

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

we're going to have to disagree Hound. The players have all, bar Kelly, fallen short. They were given the opportunity to be Championship players and they didn't achieve it. None of them who went out on loan showed anything close to the levels of performance expected. It's disappointing and hopefully...
