Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

Too many high profile players have failed catastrophically for that to be an issue. Yes it helps if you have a glittering career but when it comes down to it, knowledge of the game and certain skills show through. Parky has been a manager for too long for his playing career to come into things.

Re: Clement

But he's not been out of the game has he? He's been actively assisting for the last 5 years. He had a brief spell with villa too. It's not like he's been gardening for 7 years he's been active in football management. The point in large I was making was there's people like Nagelsman and Howe who had...

Re: Teams to be Relegated 18-19

It goes to show how tight this league is when looking at the relegation candidates, after 12 games, are only 4/5 points from play offs..... But i do think Bolton have done really well in the last few seasons to stay up, this year they might be out of luck. Isn't this only their second season back i...

Re: Gourlay

Would we be having this debate IF we held on for the win at Brentford / didn't lose to QPR o/ got a result at WBA? No, we are pointing the finger. Gourlay was not in the dressing room giving the HT team talks. He is running the club differently to The Reading Way and probably got rid of people not t...

Re: BFTG West Brom

Of course I wouldn't expect Meite and McNulty to start when our other options are fit but their failure to work together should have been noted by Clement by half time. Everyone focused on the positivity of our first half performance without noting the glaring issues. A good manager would have chan...

Re: BFTG West Brom

I've not seen the game or highlights yet, but just wanted to offer some thoughts. From what I've seen so far Walker looks a solid keeper, made some good saves at Preston, and again in the QPR defeat, and yet from the comments on here you'd think he was Peter van der Kwaak reincarnated. I'm a keeper...

Bacuna on his day is better than Williams on his day. Williams when playing shit is so much better than bacuna when playing shit.
Just like Williams, Bacuna is also very inconsistent.

Re: BFTG West Brom

So, football. We have a blueprint for moving forward in that first half display. Don't underestimate that. Midfield was very good first half, we had a gameplan and executed it well. Not sure what was in the half time cuppa as it was a totally different performance. Barely five minutes in, soft goal...

Re: BFTG West Brom

Thought McNulty was wasted in first half. He made decent runs just wasnt passed to. To many slow (and many) sideway passes when in good positions.
Sometimes i wish we just stay out on the pitch at HT and just wait. Sick of 2nd half performances.

Even shit players do good stuff once in a while.


Andy Hughes v Wolves sprang to my mind. Not the gifted player but made the fans go nuts.

Loader surely must get some minutes. Wouldn't be surprised to see Aluko or Kelly dropped altogether from the squad with McCleary or Meyler coming in.

Re: Is Aluko really that poor?

Yes. yes he is that poor.

I had given him more than a season to judge him saying there is a decent player in there somewhere. I dont judge players on the transfer fee as tbh its not their fault some one pays that much money for them.

Re: BFT - I don’t know what to call it

Clement got the team selection wrong and the way we set up was like the away team with one up top and a defensive midfielder in front of the back four in a 4-1-4-1 line up. Are we really that scared of playing QPR at home that we have to set ourselves up like that? Think the formation was right tbh...

Is he though? Is he? Barrow still leads us for key passes per game and by my guesstimations he is a close second in second assists. He's been below par for sure but badly? No. Hes been let down by his teammates failures more than he has let down his teammates. Besides: "If no better player exi...

With McCleary and Harriott nearing full fitness there must be a case to replace both Aluko and Barrow, the latter has under performed badly this season. Is he though? Is he?
