Agree wholeheartedly on HRK, terrible footballer.


Except in the last year of his contracts.

Re: The Non - League thread

Good freebie at Maidenhead last night. Played well, deserved the win. That said they'll definitely get relegated next season. I think if they recruit decent enough they wont go down. There are some god awful teams in that league. Of course if they kept tarpey they would be alot nearer the playoffs....

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Northampton sack Hasselbaink Leaving Burton was a disaster for him, wasn't it? Did brilliant at Burton but failed everywhere else but then that's probably true of a lot of managers, do well somewhere and not worked out anywhere else. Seems to be something about Burton though. Their managers can't s...

That'll put them in the Conference South won't it? Then the Conference, sorry, the National League and then League Two.


Now just watch them wind up in the Conference North..... :lol:

Re: Building for next season

How about we try and have an injury free season too?? Dont think once this season we have fielded Obita with Swift and Kelly on the same starting 11. Failures of this year could be largely down the inconsistent squads, formations and injuries. By next season Clement should know his preferred format...

Re: The Non - League thread

Why do the conference play offs have 6 teams in? Assume it will be something like 4th vs 7th and 5th vs 6th then 3rd and 2nd v winners? But it just seems weird why they dont just do 2 automatic and then a 4 team play off?.... Is it something to do with the grounds and teams not being allowed in pla...

Re: Building for next season

Of the SENIOR players as far as I'm concerned only Moore, Kelly, Swift, Barrow and possibly Bodvarsson are worth keeping, if all the others left it wouldn't bother me.

Re: The Non - League thread

Thatcham have secured promotion with a late win at Highworth. You've got to give that Thatcham team credit, they've been unstoppable. I was there tonight - crowd officially announced as 291 - but there is plenty of room at the Elms so didn't seem packed. Thatcham had the upper hand for most of the ...

Re: Safe standing progress

Whilst not being a direct reason for Hillsborough, it was indicative of how football supporters were regarded at the time, fenced in in unsafe areas, and treated as a problem. Pick up any fanzine in the aftermath of Hillsborough and they were all awash with stories of crumbling terraces, aggressive...

Also just noted that Western League Street are on a little bit of a run. On 21st October they were done 7-1 at Willand Rovers in the FA Vase. Twenty three games later their record reads P23, W23, D0, L0 in all competitions (3 cup, 20 league). Believe the world record for successive wins is 25 - anyo...

Re: BFTG Sunderland

Can’t see Joey or Edwards playing next season Swift/Bacuna/Kelly is prob our best combo but Bacuna’s stupidity has messed that up I’m not convinced Evans is any better than an ok fill in. He hasn’t really progressed and never seems to dominate a game Interesting to see Rinomhota was picked ahead of...

Re: Relegation Watch

Given our far superior goal difference this means that even if we lose all our remaining games, Birmingham would need to get more than 1 win from their last 3 games. If we win one of our 3, we are basically safe as you can't see B'ham getting more than 2 wins. Birmingham would need 4 points if we l...

Nope. He'll be gone in the summer clear out.


Maybe, but that doesn't explain why he wasn't played on Saturday.


Perhaps because he isn't very good? Not that that's an argument anyway after watching Edwards play.

George Evans anyone?

Re: Relegation Watch

Could be safe now - will Birmingham get 4 points from their remaining games? We need the auto place to go to the last day though as if Colin is up, Fulham will field a reserve side to save his main players for the play offs. Who knows. Birmingham do have the worst run in of the struggling teams. Le...
