Re: Injury & Suspension Watch : 2018/2019

Jordan Obita won't be back this season. As I mentioned elsewhere I have heard a little bit about his recovery as he uses the chryo chamber at Bracknell Town and their pitch for 1 to 1 sessions. From what I was told a few months ago he'd struggle to come back at all and now that seems to be confirme...

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

I quite like the idea of playing against Richard Keogh with 120 minutes in his legs. Depends who is playing up top against him. Bodvarsson doesn't have the mobility to run him ragged. Wouldn't mind Loader starting up top for this one just to wear the Derby CB's down a bit. Loader is nowhere near re...

Re: Is Kelly off?

Would be a shame to lose a academy player however sentiment cant carry you forever. If he were to be off, I personally dont think we should replace him unless it is for a genuine 1st team player. Sick of these can do a job midfielders coming in or foreign journeymen and never playing cos they're are...

Re: BFTG Forest Home

He was involved in other good moves as well as the assist, but unfortunately invariably made the wrong decision or executed it poorly. Straight off the top of my head there was: First half - his shot from outside the box in a central position which the goalie made a meal of by palming round the pos...

Re: BFTG Forest Home

I was somewhat bemused to see the BBC report describing it as a "turgid" match. We've had two years of turgidity, pal, this was a huge improvement! Nice to hear Jackie Wilson being played after the game, rather than Steve Wonder! Same was said on the Quest EFL show, they clearly lift a lo...

Re: Tiago llori

Am I the only one who thinks illori is a decent CB and worth more than £3 million...? I think he is potentially worth more than 3m. too many mistakes recently have certainly hit his value. He has tons of ability if he could concentrate better and make better decisions at times. I'd personally like ...

Re: Rival Watch

Leeds have been busted spying on Derby's training. Sure they'll get away with a tap on the wrist, but that's just blatant cheating isn't it?! I often feel Leeds have it tough as nearly everyone has it in for them, but the more I read into this the worse it looks for them. I agree that if found guil...

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

So it points towards getting in players with clever movement and the ability to carve up opponents. Rather than using classic wing play of stretching the play, beating your man and putting a ball into the box. Barrow can beat players using pace but thats about it. These days they are incredibly few...

Re: Rumour - Tyler Blackett to Wigan

He has been playing in an unsettled team and shifted from CB to LB to the bench every week. Like most players getting a consistent level of performances requires being played in 1 position consistently.
Unless we have a genuine 1st team replacement for CB or LB lined up, keeping Blackett is a must.

Re: Bring on the Forest-team for Saturday?

no agreed, that I wouldn't start him. I do wonder if he sees Swift as more part of the 2, with Aluko and Ejaria as the 10s though I see Gomes setting up with 2 work horses in middle. Allowing the front 4 a little more expression. I dont see Swift doing any grunt work except maybe picking it up from...

Aaron Kuhl has basically been crocked for the last 2 years. Last I read he was trying to rebuild a career at Step 2-3 in non league. Aaron Tshibola is on loan at Kilmarnock from Villa. kuhl is currently working at a local supermarket Only until he gets his break then he will prob quit. As i mention...

Re: BFTG - Swansea

his passes aren't the issue though. you could make a million forward passes per game, but if you gift the other team a goal per game, then youre a shit defender yeah obvs the analysis is limited. And he needs to cut the mistakes. Was more interested in how poorly Moore rated on it tbh no real surpr...

Re: January Outs

Shame it isn't McNulty. Imagine the club are desperately trying to offload him back to Coventry and happy to take a loss on him. Loan him out till end of season - if we are relegated we'll keep him. If he does well on his loan his value wont depreciate as much. Think L1 is his level - but i do thin...
