Re: The Stam passing game

Generally I enjoy the style. I agree sometimes it can get very stale and become unwatchable - thinking games like Ipswich at home last year, but I think we are progressing I enjoy the tactical side and seeing the way that Villa were ran around before being picked off was a genuine joy to watch Stam ...

Re: Preston fan in peace and ale

Not sure if I'm impressed or not that there isn't even the slightest mention of the football match in that post

Still useful info I'm sure for those travelling up.

Re: Preston (A) Predictions

I'll be very pleasantly surprised if we do win this. Always dread Preston away

Still, maybe over optimistic after Tuesday and going for a 2-0 win. Swift and Popa

Re: RUMOUR - Shane Long (lol)

He had one great season for us and I remember fans at one time moaning that we had let Simon Cox go but had kept Shane Long. Don't get me wrong I still think he'd be a great player at this level but I'd much prefer us to spend the money on Sam Gallagher. I see that Villa and Derby are after him and...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by the first long trek of the season

Looks like typically shite northern weather for the game. Rain and wind whilst reading basks in sunshine Think that may even help out style though. Reckon we'll go with the same front 3 as Villa - Rowatt said on sky that Derby went with mobility up front against them, so think Stam will do the same ...

Interesting Brum, Villa and Derby (big surprise there) apparently

Sure he'd jump at the chance of not having to join one of those basket cases

It seems to start off well then tail off into a mumbling dirge of mind boggling inanity.

I could be wrong of course as I don't know the words.

Re: Jaap Stam Had a Dream

"Jaap Stam had a dream to build a football team, he didn't have money, then he did. The end." Jaap Stam had a dream to build a football team, he had some money, but not as much as those clubs who can go out and spend 7,8,9, 10 million on one player so he had to be inventive in what he cou...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by the first long trek of the season

Preston seems to be one of those places that we show our true soft southern side to, and generally get a good sound beating from our dour northern friends At least this time it shouldn't be too cold, miserable and wet so we may at least have some sort of chance Not a bad club though Preston, have a ...

Does suggest he has made up with the boss though. Which theoretically makes it less likely he will join us

hmm, whatever - its a particularly dull argument. Basically both of their styles is to try to score goals and generally to play in the centre forward position the spirit of how the original post was intended was I'd rather not buy additional players for a couple of million if it took that money away...

Re: BFTG - Villa

Is it a serious suggestion that one of the suits told Stam to up the team's entertainment levels?

Sure Stam would have taken that very well if there was any remote possibility that had happened

Impressed with their support tbf. Rinsed us early on. Our reactionary chants are spot on though. Liam Moore is the best CB I can remember for us. Wins literally everything at both ends. agree. He is absolutely immense. A ridiculous steal at the price we got him for. Has everything, and fully expect...
