Re: Sheffield Utd - Back from the game

We always struggle against big, strong teams so the result was not a surprise for me Performance was concerning but again if you don't play a striker you're not going to score goals? Feels like the season is a write off unless BT has something up his sleeve for Jan Yeah.. Its not like Spain won the...

Gillingham W 2-0 @ 4-4-2 Aston Villa W 2-1 @ 4-2-3-1 Millwall W 3-1 @ 4-2-3-1 Birmingham City W 2-0 @ 3-5-2 Leeds Utd W 1-0 @ 4-4-2 No wins playing 4-6-0 or 5-5-0. Stam's time is up. Villa game was 4-3-3 with false 9. Which is actually 4-6-0. Call it what you want as long as you update your statist...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (a) sponsored by one swallow does not a summer make

5 at the back is shit, doesn't work, the wing backs don't offer enough going forward, the midfield and attack are always outnumbered and isolated. All the moaning about not having a striker is bollocks, wouldn't make any difference as the system doesn't make any chances. We haven't played consisten...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (a) sponsored by one swallow does not a summer make

Kevin Dillon is incredibly shit on the radio. So embarrassing comments 'I've only seen Reading a couple of times' and goes on to make comments with complete assurance that he knows exactly what is going wrong.

Re: Leeds v RFC Back from the Tele

To me we played pretty much the same as we have done for the last six games but this time we took our chance and they didn't. Barrow makes a difference, our best player.

Re: BFTG - Fulham

Not a terrible performance, one mistake cost us, but not a good performance either. For me buying an expensive striker wouldn't change a lot, we just aren't creating many chances. We need to go back to 4-2-3-1, that was when we were last playing well and ripping teams open. Playing 5-3-2 at the end ...

Re: BFTG - QPR (A)

Thought the whole performance was without any positives. On reflection maybe Barrow is the new Gilkesy.

Run, run, run, run, Barrow!

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Spanish press say Joel Robles has turned down a new contract at Everton, presumably doesn't want to be sub to Pickford. Being linked to deportivo la Coruña who are basically skint and we should be able to offer more. Think he'd be a great option for us.

Re: RUMOUR - Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

From darlow and olivera to button and dadi. Reality check. These seem a bit desperate to just make sure we are getting bodies in. Would have rather stuck with Samuel.

Blimey Fulham fans seem to think he is utterly terrible and is particularly bad with the ball at his feet.

Re: Favourite rumour?

Not a rumour that got me excited but one that I miss. For about a 10-15 year period every time the manager job was available, Laurie Sanchez was always a rumoured candidate.

Re: CONFIRMED: Pelle Clement

My Dutch mate says that he is a good goalscoring midfielder but with other midfielders such as Schöne, Van de Beek, Nouri, Ziyech and Frenkie de Jong not much room left at Ajax.

Re: RUMOUR - Daryl Murphy

Never understood why Newcastle signed him, always thought he was very average at Ipswich.
