Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Liverpool fans, gr8 bunch of lads... https://static.euronews.com/articles/306888/880x495_306888.jpg Just curious, are you actively trying to outdo Kes in the obsessive weirdo stakes or is it accidental? He is just some Irish, anti-Protestant weirdo embittered by Man Utd's failure in recent years to...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queens Park Rangers sponsored by the Simod Cup started here

I suspect we will be in big trouble this afternoon whoever plays. Sometimes its when out backs are against the wall we can spring the odd surprise and get the odd point. Then again.....those times are rare. Agreed. Clement had a couple of games where, for whatever reasons, he made a number of chang...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Big test on Saturday. Other than that they keep disappointing me. Hard not to like the current Liverpool side. Shame the majority of their fans are dickheads Not sure Saturday is a big test , Arsenal at home. With so many fixtures this time of year I assume you were referring to the game at City ne...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Interesting to see the pundits change like the wind-a few weeks ago it was all about Liverpool looking likely to finish runners-up to unbeatable City and now it is how fragile City look after two defeats with Fernandinho out of the side. What I like about this Liverpool is that they are more like th...

Re: BFTG- Millwall (a)

The top clubs can play passing football because they have top players. Don't know if anyone has noticed but we don't. Swansea managed it at this level. So, what do you think the club should do with the dross that we have got? Long ball is no good as most of the time we have midgets playing up front...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Liverpool just refusing to fcuk this up at the moment, aren't they? What a difference a couple of weeks make - Liverpool's challenge looked on the rails after 95 minutes of the Merseyside derby, since when just about everything has gone right. 8 wins in a row now, conceding just 2 goals.

Re: BFTG- Millwall (a)

There has been a lot said and written about possession football in recent years. As I see it, effective possession football as played by top teams like Barcelona, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Man City is so much more about not giving the ball away when passing rather than possession in the...

Re: BFTG- Millwall (a)

Angry young man following on from where he left off last Saturday when he was fortunate not to get sent off. Having 2 sent off in your first game in charge is IIRC not without precedent. Was it Burns' first game away to Ipswich when we had two sent off??. Hopefully this season doesn't end as badly a...

Re: BFTG Boro Home

Barrow is continually doubled up on now, and 9/10 times he has no one showing for him or making an overlapping run to make it harder for the defenders. it's criminal tbh. Yep. We have a player free and never make it count. It happened on Saturday. He had two players on him yet our lot were static a...

Re: José Gomes whelmguage

Having mentioned on another managerial thread that our year seems to have run in tandem with that of Southampton I hope it continues. They appointed a new manager last Spring who kept them up-some money was spent in the Summer but come December they were around the relegation spots so they sacked t...

Re: BFTG Boro Home

Mc Cleary and Swift, 2 of our better players recently left on the bench-why? McCleary has had his best days. Swift is a luxury player. Loader provides more all round playing in the no 10 role. I know we all want Loader to do well because he is one of our own but are you serious? Loader has had a ru...

Re: BFTG Boro Home

Not a 100% nor match fit. Little point in rushing players back. Lot of fixtures come close together. How do you get match fit then if you can't play 30 mins you shouldn't be on the bench. How will he be any nearer match fit for the next games? Marshall for the first time wasn't making sense with hi...

Re: New Manager

Meanwhile looks like compensation talks have hit a few glitches and Mr Gomes will not be announced before Monday. It's either that or he's been diverted and gone missing in the Gatwick aftermath. Debut game. Millwall away. I still expect a Madejski-type stunt with the new manager parachuting in jus...

Re: New Manager

As others have said, this is a really strange appointment. He has certainly been around and hopefully he has learned something along the way. If this had been May with a full pre-season I could understand it as he would have 3-4 months to suss the existing players but with just a few days to go to t...

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

Poch should and probably will be there only choice and I think they'd get him. A new stadium isn't going to keep him at Spurs. Didn't he and Sir Alex have dinners together a few years ago? Sure I read he was very well liked by Sir Alex and he tried to lure him to Old Trafford. I thought Zidane was ...

Not as convinced as some that Brentford will be relegated but 25/1 is tremendous value compared to some of the other prices offered.

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

MOURINHO SACKED Fair play, a little surprised. Carrick til the end of the season? Club have said no permanent appointment until the summer. That's a long time for a caretaker but the club have taken the decision ahead of a few very winnable games-the right thing IMHO as Mourinho would probably have...
