Re: Next seasons kit choice?

They're all quite smart, not quite so keen on the away kit idea. Also a bit odd that they've all got different collars.

Another +1 for the quarters. Not a lot to fear from Group H I don't think.

Re: Play-Offs Thread 2018

Can't be doing with them coming up again. What is the point in it? I know. I really want Shrews to come up so I can do a weekend round there and Telford/Ironbridge Decent town Telford. Having been raised in a town in Shropshire from the age of 4 not far from Telford, I know the place pretty well. I...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Went to Sampdoria v Napoli on Sunday as previously documented in this thread. Sounds fantastic. Did you feel at all intimidated being (presumably) English? Did anyone notice you were and 'welcome' you, so to speak? Not really no (to feeling intimidated). We were sat in a bar before the game having ...

Re: Play-Offs Thread 2018

On that note I saw a lot of our supporters criticising Fulham for giving out flags and clappers when we did EXACTLY the same thing in last seasons home leg against Fulham. Short memories. I'm trying to find evidence but I'm pretty sure that's not true is it? We certainly had flags, I might be getti...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Went to Sampdoria v Napoli on Sunday as previously documented in this thread. Pretty good game on the whole, despite the waterlogged left wing causing a few comedy moments of the ball stopping and the player trying to dribble with it running beyond it without the ball. Napoli a real threat throughou...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

A Juve win and a Napoli draw widens the gap at the top of Serie A to 6 points with 2 to play and Juve having a superior GD to Napoli. All done and dusted barring the grande bella Italian turning on her microphone.

Predict Sunday's outcome

Gauging the mood ahead of the weekend.

I've discounted "draw and go down" as an option as Burton would need to overcome a 21 goal differential for that to happen

Re: Clements Out.

Clement did the right thing. Players utterly let him, the fans and themselves down YET AGAIN. None of this is Clement's fault as he has largely had his hands tied by injuries and suspensions and general crap from of those aren't injured and suspended. Roll on next season, wherever it is and a chanc...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Napoli win 1-0 away at Juve with a 90th minute goal. Gap down to 1 point, title race back on! Of the 4 remaining games they both have Juve have to go away to Roma and away to Inter while Napoli's hardest fixture is a trip to 8th placed Sampdoria As mentioned previously, I've a keen interest in this...

Re: BFTG Villa

Also I had to laugh, that wonder strike which broke the deadlock was exactly that. The same lad had 4 or 5 long shots throughout the game and every single one was row z, apart from the one which almost went out for a throw. So for him to hit it first time so sweetly into the top corner was a bit an...

Steve Bruce said in his post match interview on Radio WM, that his stats guy said to him at half time Villa had put 30 crosses into the box, so I can well believe it was 50+ at full time
