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

at this most disliked of clubs. I reckon Liverpool and Chelsea are more disliked than Man United. Anyway, one step closer to my lucrative Burnley bet coming in. if their other performances are like that they're going down... You may well be right LUX but Huddersfield and Cardiff look very likely so...

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

That has no relevance. At least they can say that they haven't managed to turn off a trillion Man Utd fans or however many there are on the planet. Talking to the few that I know ,the common theme is that they feel embarrassed by the words and actions of the current manager-whatever happened to the ...

Re: Clement

I am considering the Ian Royal option as at least I know he wouldn't select Gunter. It's all very well people saying that managers shouldn't be sacked but that is just the way football is. I don't know whether Clement is any good-the players look dreadful and lack motivation, whether that be lack of...

Re: BFTG - Weds H

I have bored people so many times on here about Gunter so this time I leave it to other posters and BBCRB in being disappointed that the weak Welshman came in to take the place of probably our best player this season. For this I blame Clement. I also blame Clement (and his staff) for not bothering t...

Re: Rumour - Cameron Jerome

I don't think touch is something that can be improved upon significantly-by the age of 21 IMHO you either have it or you haven't. Seeing Shane Long and Antonio in the Premier League they have improved in some areas of the game (particularly heading in the case of Antonio) but in both instances their...

Re: Rumour - Cameron Jerome

In commentary last night it was said that Forest are in for Jerome or Gestedde. Wouldn't mind either, although Gestedde's injury record isn't so good. If nothing happens it means that the manager has a lot of faith in Meite. To me he is a Div 1 or Div 2 level striker but , for the sake of us and the...

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

A good point made by Carragher last night-who has improved under the coaching of the special one? You can see that some players have improved under the coaching of Pep, Poch and Klopp but the Man Utd players seem to have gone backwards. I always felt that most of Mourinho's successes have come about...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by 3 league wins in 2018

Watched the game last night on the Sky red button-it reminded me of the tapes that I used to buy 30 years or more ago of our away games where there was use of just the one camera and all the commentator did was reel of facts that were repeated and repeated. However it was good to be able to watch th...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by 3 league wins in 2018

So what was the bombshell Clement was talking about on Saturday?? Meyler and/or Swift being dropped? Barrow on the bench-I am with those that think that a player is either fit or he isn't. It's not as if he has been out for 3 months and isn't quite up-to-speed as he has only been unfit for a week. H...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by 3 league wins in 2018

I wish Hound wouldn't keep on about how f*****g great some of our players were against Birmingham. For the record, their starting eleven for that game contained just ONE solitary player from their previous fixture. I would hope that some of our players might look good against Birmingham reserves oth...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Ian, we don't need to drop. We came within a pen of going up. Cardiff were bottom, a year later PL. No surprise, and no 5 year plan. Burnley went up, stayed up, now in Europe. Bournemouth stayed up Hudders went up No massive budgets with these teams, then or now. That would be the same Bournemouth ...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Not much more to add but FWIW I am in the Swift camp rather than Kelly. Kelly seems to have gone backwards since he decided he wanted to be an English international rather than an Irish one and his booking was pathetic by behaving like a little kid when he himself did not get a fee-kick. I think peo...

Re: Rumour: Nathan Dyer (loan)

I suggested Dyer a couple of weeks ago on here. He is so much better than what we have apart from Barrow and I would be delighted if we got him and went with two quick wide players. He is also better than any that we have in terms of tracking back and for a little 'un he is not afraid to tackle . So...

Re: BFTG Birmingham

Is it just me raising a wry smile at the fact everyone's fawning over O'Shea after most completely wrote him off before a ball was kicked? I will reserve judgement on O'Shea until (let's hope it is not necessary) he plays in a proper competitive match. Last night Birmingham fielded just ONE player ...

Presumably be some changes for this one. I'd quite like to see some starts for at least some of Moore, McNulty, Clement, Rinomhota, Walker, Richards and Bacuna... not sure I can realistically see that many changes though. I'm assuming that the likes of Aluko, Popa and Harriott who didn't make the s...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

still managed to concede 3 goals to average teams. Obvious statement but we'd have 4 points if we hadn't conceded a goal this season But how many of them are down to an individual error of one of the CB's? None from what I can tell. Liam Moore playing or not playing hasn't had any impact so far for...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

I'd suspect he did do some light training, but isn't match sharp and integrated for tactics in time for Forest, plus it sends the message that he doesn't just waltz straight back in. Blimey Ian when did football stop being the simple game that it is? "Integrated for tactics"? He is a cent...

Re: BFTG - Forest away

The problem with people like you and Ian is that you put words into other people's posts that aren't there. So when you see someone make the perfectly reasonable statement that these strikers are not consistent goalscorers you see, "these strikers aren't consistent goalscorers. Therefore they'...
