Re: BFTG - Blackburn

First half shambles down to Gomes. Poor team set-up. Cannot afford more slip-ups. Should have been dead and buried. Nope. Rino was injured and we don't have any other tenacious tough tackling midfielders to play there. His only choice was to play more balanced wide men who would track back and help...

Re: BFTG - Blackburn

Which is why no money was made available in January for Emery then.......... They are rich but do not provide significant transfer funds for their managers, haven't since they left Highbury. Keep up. Try not to take things literally either, pretty sure we all know they are a well off club that wasn...

Re: BFTG - Blackburn

Would 100% get one if he moves into the number 2 slot, he will currently be on peanuts. Don't forget Arsenal haven't got any money , think their priorities will be on spending what they have in the outfield positions. Time will tell. LOL. They are one of, if not the, most cash rich clubs in the cou...

Re: Ex Players

Kuhl was featured in a piece on South Today last night. Still rehabbing 18 months after injuring his knee at Aldershot. Only managed to get the necessary op and post op treatment because his mother had private health care insurance (which sounded odd !). Seemed to be getting closer to fitness and c...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

yeah, a bit baffled by the academy talk tbh Quite. After Kane (175) and Winks (58), the active Spurs academy graduate with the most league appearances for them is Kyle Walker-Peters, with 5. Tbf this is the case pretty much across the board. The only two clubs who can claim genuine academy success ...

Re: Is Kelly off?

Not to dig the boot in, but I just never really 'got' him as a player. I don't really know what he does, in terms of what would be his strong characteristics He's an ok all round midfielder - can tackle a bit, on his day a reasonable work rate. Obviously a good shot on occasions, but not more than ...

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

This is potentially a very big game for Reading! The performance against reading was very good and only really lacked the finishing. That was followed up by a win and then a game away to a very good team at a time when they are struggling for results. A win, or even a point in this game could reall...

Re: Stadium screens

Re: Clear out started

Reckon either Bacuna or Kelly may go With Ezatolahi still injured his loan deal may also be terminated. I think we've got to assume anyone who started against Utd isn't going anywhere. I think we can assume they're not part of the annexed 5 but I don't think it follows that they won't leave if a su...

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

I'll give you QPR. Millwall are just as shit as us and Man U, although we passed it well and looked confident, they did what they had to do and no more. They didn't play how a championship team would play. You're also missing out the aberration against Swansea. Whilst I think Rinomhota has helped g...

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

Whilst I get your points re playing style (but not Barrow...) we're not even doing the basics right. I think any decent coach/manager drilling the team could improve that area. The fear is that Gomes will make the same mistakes that Clement (and to an extent Stam and Clarke) made in not bolstering ...

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

Think there is a fair amount of complacency in the two signings and a lack of acceptance as to where we are in the table. I like the fact that Gomes has a clear idea of how he wants to play - but making up a 5 point gap and playing your way out of the bottom 3 - it’s certainly brave, but I don’t th...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Totally echo VM's thoughts on middling teams not taking the Cup seriously. It just seems daft and it used to annoy the hell out of me when Coppell did the same. Yep bugs the hell out of me. By the time the FA Cup starts a club like Leicester or Bournemouth know if they are likely to be in relegatio...

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: Are we really going down this season

Rumours of trying to come to an agreement with Edwards to terminate contract. Possibly true with McShane as well Likely to have to pay a percentage of wages, as we have with Joey I think, to loan a few of the others out To be fair why not bite the bullet and do precisely that with a chunk of them. ...

He also misplaced passes. Our left flank was bloody awful. Any confidence he did have has been sucked out of him becaus...
