Re: Gourlay

I think we all know that the Russians, the Thais, or the Chinese have no real love or affinity for the club, that's its just cold hard business for them . none of them are likely to pour money into the club that they aren't getting back in some way at some point. ive got no real need to see them or ...

Re: Gourlay

also, the comments from the panel on BBCRB to have a more visible owner - is that really what people want? An owner who appears in the press all the time and makes the most of their ownership generating PR and profile? literally no interest in hearing from owners. but it certainly wouldn't hold it ...

Re: Summer Transfers

I agree with those who are saying we don't need a massive overhaul. I think that would be foolish. . for me its not just important to swap poor players for better players, but its also very important to bring enough in so that the pervading feeling within the squad isn't all about this seasons abje...

Re: Where does the blame lie ; not the Owners ?

owners to blame for putting STAM/TEV/Gourlay in charge,
gourlay and tev to blame for the most appalling recruitment, spending millions on players shit we didn't need
stam to blame for motivation, fitness and tactics.

Re: Club 1871

Also feel like they're detrimental to the East Stand atmosphere or at least today it seemed so. Y25 was silent for the majority. They're not creating atmosphere they're just sapping it from other areas of the ground. :lol: how does that work exactly? "I was going to stand up and sing for a sec...

Re: Building for next season

I can't name a single position were our options are anything more than barely adequate. to have got to this situation after spending more than in any other preseason is a oxf*rd joke. BT and stam should be massively ashamed of twhat they did here between last season and this in the transfer market....

I'm conflicted, and cant decide whats worse, that or the majority of our fans being offended by people trying to generate any kind of atmosphere at all.

Quite who in power determines the "correct" level of "representation " is never disclosed of course. Presumably it is a member of the so-called "injured minority"? surely all theyre aiming for is for the level of representation to be vaguely similar to the levels of th...

Re: BFTG Sunderland

Think Blackett was a midfielder in his youth career, so may well have a bit of knowledge in the position. It might work I'm not sure if he has the footballing intelligence to pull it off to be honest. Blackett is a very basic footballer and if things are kept simple he is a perfectly acceptable def...

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: BFTG Fulham

A new manager has come in, and the only tangible difference I can see between the two styles is that instead of trying to pass the ball out of defence we are giving it a big hoof instead. Totally disagree with this - the defence look far more assured on the ball knowing that they can hit it long if...

Re: Arriving to games late

On the flip side of leaving games early, have you ever arrived to a game late, just as Reading (or the oppo) are scoring? Other scintillating anecdotes accepted. My uncle always goes on about a game in 93-94 season, Swansea away, coach broke down in the Bristol area, arrived to the game late and wa...
