Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

It's really not worth the effort with you two. Good. BTW Ian I don't think you even know when you are being objectionable. Can't you ever post in a considered and occasionally friendly way? You never know, you might actually enjoy it and find that people are much more inclined to have a civil debat...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

Probably. "Players lose you games, not tactics. There's so much crap talked about tactics by people who barely know how to win at dominoes” Clough's idea of pre match preparation was taking his players to the red light district the night before European semi finals. He didn't have a bad career...

Re: Summer Transfers

May well be Maddison who was not in Posh’s squad today. Can imagine trying to sort a loan deal with McAnthony and Fry would be like pulling teeth one by one with no anaesthetic...good luck Gourlay and Tevreden on that one..your negotiating skills will be put to the ultimate test if this is the plan...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

You'd think watching football for half a century or more might give you a hint that defence is a bit more complex and involved than a bunch of individuals trying to make tackles and blocks. Or do you think training just involves some exercise, and a fun XI a side kick-about? It was either the late ...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

Blimey Ian when did football stop being the simple game that it is? "Integrated for tactics"? He is a centre-back who played under this manager for the last 10 (?) games last season and his job is to stop the opposition strikers from scoring. Not sure that there is much in terms of tactic...

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: Forest (A) match thread

Along with Barrow ,Moore is one of our two best players IMHO and if he is good enough to be considered worth £10 million (or £4 million) or whatever amount we turned down for him he has to play now that he is fully committed to the club :?: This looks a hotch potch of a side , so much so that we hav...

Re: Summer Transfers

Not even Spaculation. just good players that I hope we would be looking at. Burnley have a glut of strikers/ attack minded players, whichever one comes up on loan we should be looking at. (Walters, Barnes, Wells) Also I am surprised no one has gone for Akins of Burton yet he was there best player b...

Re: Barrow to Leicester

If I had to have a bet on it I'd say Barrow's agent has just leaked things to a publication in order to generate interest in his player before the transfer window closes. Wouldn't have thought there is any solid interest. Barrow is decent but silly money like £10m would be impossible to turn down. ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (h) sponsored by a new hope

Agree with most of the comments and a draw would have been about right on the balance of play;we were better in the first half and they were better in the second. Lampard hasn't really addressed Derby's biggest problem-central defence. Just as Gunter has been poor for us yet always selected, the sam...

Re: Injury & Suspension Watch : 2018/2019

Chris Gunter will miss the first 3-6 weeks of the season due to a thigh injury. More accurate than you could ever realise, Paul: "Gunter has a thigh injury, he got the injury trying to block a cross. It is very unlike him. It is going to be 3 to 6 weeks." It's unlike Gunter to try and blo...

Re: Smallest Attack in Champ

Brentford. Literally the first club I looked up. All the forwards who's height I could find. Neal Maupay 5ft7 Ollie Watkins 5ft 11 Justin Shaibu 5ft 11 Sergio Canos 5ft9 Said Benrahma 5ft8 Is this our worst thread of the season? A good example of a quick-passing side dedicated to attacking football...

Am off to Brighton this afternoon ahead of grand-daughter's graduation.

Re: Rumour Kortney Hause

I like the sound of this one. He had no chance of getting in their side ahead of the brilliant Boly and if it is a case of him or Elphick I would prefer us to go for the younger man rather than add to our geriatric centre-backs in McShane and O'Shea. You have to believe that the club has been on cen...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

If the team was as dire as you seem to think then no amount of (realistic) additions would have sorted us out. There are plenty of reasons to be optimistic this season despite losing our best player (who I happen to think we got a great deal on if reports are to be believed) - we finally have good ...
