Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

Depends who is playing up top against him. Bodvarsson doesn't have the mobility to run him ragged. :| Bod is deceptively quick and put in a lot of hard yards chasing down the Forest back line on Saturday. I would say he was our most suited to that role. Wow emojis..... Mature. H e isn't quick, just...

Re: BFTG Forest Home

No one played badly on Saturday and that includes Barrow. His work ethic was better. He tracked back and defended and put in one or two decent tackles. His pass to Swift was perfectly timed for the first goal. As Plats has said he had a decent enough effort at goal which the Forest keeper limply pu...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

In fairness to Forest the ref was absolutely terrible, total homer. Don't think they can complain about the red cards or even the yellows but he gave every close call our way and generally handled things poorly - shouldn't have let that brawl get so out of hand for example. We got lucky. If he'd be...

Re: 26th January 2010 - Close comparison to current season

Thorvaldsson oxf*rd me that's a name I don't recognise, even seeing his name I don't even remember his existence from that season. I'm fairly certain he never existed. I can't even vaguely remember him. Wasn't he Ingimarsson's cousin? I cannot remember him playing at all, but I vaguely remember tal...

Re: BFTG Forest Home

Really enjoyed that. Built on the Man U game with the same passing with a purpose, but this time we pressed them hard, really hard, all game, and got our just deserts. And short of getting a dog on the pitch, is there anything better in football than that kind of og?. Ngl, I rather enjoyed Yiadom's...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Getting seriously worried by our business. Young big shot not proved anythings on loan in positions we don't need more numbers. Suggests there's no money either. Why does it suggest we have no money? Seeing as we don't know what division we'll be in next season, getting in permanent players on big ...

Re: Clear out started

Happens in a lot of work places though. if someone isn't up to the job they tend to get isolated. Not being included on good projects, given mundane tasks to do, etc in the hope they'll get fed up and leave, as opposed to having to be made redundant or paid off. And is constructive dismissal. It's ...

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

Nope. More of an attacking midfielder, a bit like Swift if he could run. FFS. Told you, JG sees attack and creativity and attack as the best form of defence. In his 6 months at Ave he apparently never addressed their defensive frailties so I reckon we should hardly be surprised if we see the squad ...

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

Blurb up on the website about Tom McIntyre - definitely one of our own, in that he is a fan as well as an academy product, and has been playing since he was 6, even before he could officially sign, at 8. Worth a read, and nice seeing the photos of him with players in the past like Murty and Ingimars...

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

It’s rare you hear a footballer speak and wonder if they’ve ever considered going on Mastermind. Their brains are in their feet ! This is, of course, utter nonsense. Agreed.

Re: Clear out started

Tiger said in a meeting with the fans in the summer of 2016 that a lot of the players 'didn't respect' McDermott and that was one reason they decided to make a change. In hindsight, I hope he realises he should have changed the players not the manager. I imagine Brian McDermott was getting them to ...

Probably one of the worst things to do to a pro is put them in the under 23's. However if they've been a disruptive influence then its the right decision. Just can't see Manone & Mcshane being those type of players. Clear out necessary as we are losing a million a month at the moment. Can only ...

No surprises so far. Suspect some of the other players that haven't performed to their potential/nearing their sell by date that are going to be harder to shift.
