Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Just perception, probably a recency thing because Dortmund came close in 18/19, and also because broadly speaking the head to head matches between the sides are normally close. The Bundesliga is arguably the least exciting league in Europe - in chronological order since Klopp's second title win wit...

Re: Rival Watch

We need 5 wins now and even that might not be enough. Sadly think we are done for this season and probably a few more as we will now lose many of our best players in the summer and have to rebuild all over again which typically takes time. It is getting increasingly hard to compete with the newly r...

Re: Where do we go from here 21/22 season?

though I agree it is out of our hands there is still time for teams to stumble. a few years back we look relegated with about 6 games to go and we pulled off the great escape. Tonight's is the second time we've watched and hoped. Hoping for two home wins but not holding my breath. If Swansea and Bo...

Re: Where do we go from here 21/22 season?

Lets not forget that we've played in an artificial environment this season. Who knows how the team will respond to the return on fans in the mad stad - who knows how the fans will respond to the team? There will know doubt be some players who thrive in a livelier atmosphere and some that will buckl...

Re: Where do we go from here 21/22 season?

Maybe save some time and just look at the League table? To be fait here, you can be competing in terms of points gained but not in a head to head. Just means we've picked up points somewhere else. In individual games we have matched most opponents around us but there must be a reason that in the va...

Re: Support for Liam.

Twitter, especially football twitter is a cesspool. It is full of people who appear to be so angst-ridden that they just constantly have to find fault. Hardly a surprise that Moore was racially abused, surprised it took so long. Had a quick look on there this morning and Olise and Richards are the l...

Re: Where do we go from here 21/22 season?

I love this RDG team but not sure how we can say thy have a great attitude when in almost every game they've gone behind they've lost, and often when we concede 1 we conceded 2 or 3. BMTH, Preston, Stoke, Boro, for example. I think we are mentally frail, and we still need a nasty leader. In our fav...

Re: Rival Watch

Broken up into blocks of 8 games each... 1-8, 22 points 9-16, 8 pts 17-24, 13 pts 25-32, 10 pts 33-40, 15 pts That doesn't really point to a collapse. It points to the inevitable consequence of five months of picking up fewer ppg that the other sides up there. Of course, had Barnsley not had their ...

Re: Rival Watch

We'll just have to keep going and hope Bournemouth and/or Barnsley slip up, starting with Cardiff on Friday. Their failure to win today has pretty much ended their season so they have little to play for, maybe we can put pressure on the teams above us by at least temporarily going back into the pla...

Re: Rival Watch

Form has been mid table excluding the start. Just 44 points from 33 games. Only if you ignore the good games but not the bad. Which is 44 in 29 and puts us on about 70 over the course of a season. Which is just shy of the POs. Exactly where we are. Sure but the good came at the start of the season ...

Re: Rival Watch

Yep we had enough chances we choked when it mattered. After Cardiff beat us next week we could be looking at an 8th or 9th finish. I think Parlo has to take the blame for this collapse. Poor team selections insistence on playing out from the back. Not to mention stupid subs at the wrong time. Have ...

Re: Rival Watch

All those games incl. Norwich are winnable. WNG. If Barnsley and Bournemouth win, pressure is totally off us. Not really. It means the pressure is then on us to win pretty much every game. But more in hope than expectation. We now esp. If Bournemouth win in the week have very little chance of finis...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Watford (a)

I admire your positivity Stranded. I wish Pauno was more willing to freshen things up when we look tired. It has become noticeable how much we drop off in the latter stages of matches. Yet there are bench options. He can learn from this season but it is going to be a tricky summer. We will lose Oli...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Watford (a)

Honestly I think we’ve probably blown it now. Those awful defeats to the likes of Brum, Preston and Wycombe will be the defining moments As for the game last night, I though first half was as good as we’ve been offensively all season bar the finishing. Fantastic exciting football going forward, Pus...
