Re: Bust up between Clement and Barrow

Tim Dellor doesn’t like Mo Barrow much does he? Arrogant and surly he called him. And said there was absolutely no doubt that Clement is a far nicer, more intelligent and articulate man than Barrow. But he is still banging on with the rest of them that we need to know what happened in order to judg...

Re: Bust up between Clement and Barrow

Just looked at Wikipedia where it says that having played 20 times in the Premier League under Bob Bradley he was made available for transfer after falling out with new manager Paul Clement. So there is clear history. Selective reading. Wiki basically says Barrow moved down the pecking order becaus...

Re: Clement

We’ve been fairly entertaining on the whole this year imo Certainly better than last year Yes, people seem to have forgotten how shit we were under Stam I can't find any stats last year for shots per game, but we had the lowest percentage of possession in the opposition final third and greatest per...

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Lol@Mr Bean in his post-match interview. All he could come up with was how good the 2 Juve centre-backs were. The studio guests seemed to think that it was his (un)subtle way of saying that he wasn't allowed to sign any more centre-backs when of course he signed Lindelhof and Bailly as well as havi...

Re: BFTG Birmingham (A)

The Kelly pass summed us up-far too concerned with going backwards rather than forwards and last night you couldn't help think that nothing has changed much from the days of Stam. I hope Clement can patch things up with Barrow as the options of him (on form) and McCleary (fit) might mean that we ge...

Re: BFTG Birmingham (A)

Didn't go but watched on TV. I suppose it was all quite predictable-look o.k. in the first half but not creating much. Come out at the start of the second having taken prozac or something in the dressing room. Let the opposition get on top until waking up again a few minutes before the end. The comm...

Re: BFTG Millwall Home

Danny Guthrie deserves absolutely no sympathy from anyone. What a totally mad thing to suggest. Am not suggesting sympathy for Guthrie, my point was simply a footballing one about playing in midfield. If you have ever played there you will know that it is very much about moving the ball on to playe...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

The French league is a joke, can't see the other clubs standing for the PSG dominance much longer. Didn't Lyon win at Man City recently? :wink: I had no idea that fixture was played in the French league........ It is just an example of the capability of a team other than PSG. Has anything happened ...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Bayern won 3-1 at Wolfsburg at the weekend despite Arjen Robben being sent off midway through the second half. But the leaders kept up their pace Moenchengladbach, Werder Bremen and Dortmund all won, the latter 4-0 from just 4 shots on target, including a goal for Jadon Sancho, and another one for ...

Re: BFTG Millwall Home

I feel a bit for Swift . As with Guthrie and Norwood before him he suffers from the lack of movement from other midfielders and strikers who don't readily make themselves available for a pass. Baldock does make some good runs but otherwise players are too static and the ball ends up too often with o...

Re: Tim Dellor

In most other areas of the country the local radio football presenters are close to their clubs and are usually up-to-date on injuries etc. ahead of a game. Whether it is the fault of the club or the fault of BBCRB presenters I don't know but yesterday they were behaving like us uninformed fans in s...

Re: BFTG Millwall Home

I know it doesn't behoove folks on here to enjoy when things work out for us but how anyone can say there was doubt about the penalty is beyond me. Admittedly I didn't see it in real time as I was queuing for a pint but seeing it on the limited highlights it was as clear as you like, although it wa...

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Hmm, interesting. Now obviously I know Sweet fa about football and don’t watch an awful lot of the pro game these days but I think Trippier is a brilliant defender. No one ever gets passed him, he’s quick, athletic and times his tackles brilliantly and cleanly. Totally disagree-a typical modern-day...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a) sponsored by Nigel Adkins last game

Game should be on the Sky red button as there is a Championship game being televised.
Much will depend upon how we handle Lukiewic (sp?) and the lively Jota.

Re: BFTG Millwall Home

I think if Millwall had carried on with the passing game where they dominated for the first 25 minutes we could well have lost the game but fortunately they didn't. 26 attempts plus 14 corners for an away side is exceptional especially for a side near the relegation places but goals win matches of c...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

You were talking about management exposure at Championship level, you can't bring time as an assistant manager or League 1 / 2 into that. You've taken no account of club circumstance. Colchester, Bradford and Bolton were all very successful jobs for Parky yet you seem to want to put the mist negati...
