Re: BFTG Forest Home

Great 3 points. Launched at Forest right from the off and that I think is what won it as they didn’t seem to be expecting it and they just couldn’t settle into their own game. And the great news on that is that that is what Gomes wants. A high press and tempo to make sure the ball quickly gets back...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (h) sponsored by Steve Stone

It'll be the Notts guy, they were making those kind of remarks all through the match My Forest mate who was in the away game says Reading were dreadful and are doomed to relegation. Polar opposites to my view, but I guess that’s the rose tinted glasses of a football fan that makes these things very...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (h) sponsored by Steve Stone

Slightly puzzled by the BBC report... https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46766459 ...which talks about us "defending in numbers" and only looking better once Forest were down to 10 men. At no stage in the game did Forest ever have a spell of pressure and look on top. I wouldn't say it w...

Interesting thing to say about the team that has the most clean sheets in 2018 in the whole country!

Re: BFTG United (A)

So Bod then. Don't think Gomes likes the idea of a tall striker Well I’d play Meite and Bod up front, tell them to smash up the defenders, really get fcuking stuck in and bust some heads, bang crosses in. Cause mayhem. Why not? All this clever, clever pissing about with the ball is getting us nowhe...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Manchester United (a) sponsored by down down deeper and down

Could this game be one of the most embarrassing performances shown on live TV? Damage limitation is a must - hopefully we can be brave and hold on for a at least 30 mins. We are a team that have no real defending or attacking qualities. Playing a team that is fully motivated and scoring all sorts o...

Re: Worth a flutter?

Reading much the better side in the first half showing that was definitely worth a flutter at 33/1.

Sadly quality showed with the second goal.

Very pleased with our efforts here though.

Worth a flutter?

33/1 at Bet 365 for Reading to win - surely ridiculous odds for a two horse race. Also, remember it will be Man United B vs Rejuvinated Reading. There is also the effect of the shackles of the league relegation battle being released meaning players will be less likely to cut-out the silly errors. Fi...

Re: BFTG - Swansea

Setting aside some very inept defending, I found today hugely encouraging. It was the best we have looked as an attacking unit since before the Stam era - much more variety in approach play and intent - overall an exciting insight in to what the coming months will bring. The style of play is also ve...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queens Park Rangers sponsored by the Simod Cup started here

Regardless of result this is very positive - clear impact from the manager’s style of play and not just meaningless possession but a large number of shots.

The future is bright under Jose!

Re: Is this the worst Royals squad ever? Who would you keep?

I think the answer to my first question is easy; I can’t think of a previous team worst than this. Who would you keep? apart from ex-academy players I can’t think of many. Today, at a time when every player should be trying his best to get a result two selfish idiots get sent off. Both of them shou...

Re: New Manager

Decision on this from Rio Ave/Gomes not expected until after their cup game with Sporting Lisbon on Wednesday evening. Might well be just a matter of agreeing comp. with the Ave chairman. Worryingly the Portuguese media rate it as a risky move if it happens and says that despite Ave managing to get...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Ipswich Town (h) sponsored by Orlando Sa

:shock: Meite overhead kick :shock: Meite reminds of a young Thierry Henry. When he first came to Arsenal he was a bit clumsy and lost, played out on the wing, but in his third season he really blossomed as a striker, found an eye for goal and the rest is history. We’ll sell him in 2 years for £30m +

Disagree with many on here - thought that was best we’ve looked for a while.

Enjoyable to watch going forward with a few moments that didn’t quite go our way.

Don't suppose anyone has a stream.
