Re: Enjoying or hating the no football era?

Alternatively depending on the time frame of coronavirus would be to indefinitely delay the season with the aim of resuming it around the November time or so and not having a 2020/2021 season at all. Wouldn't happen but would be fairer. Do you think they'd have to not allow any transfers between no...

Winston Biscuit can't work out whether I am a fan or not of English football commentators pronouncing Arteta's first name as 'Mickle'


Yeah, but "Many a mickle makes a muckle".

So it's fine.

Re: BFT well I don’t know what to call it without resorting to a lot of naughty words

Our owners have some cash, so provided we can shift big-earners (I'm sure there will be takers for Moore and Swift) and we cut cloth accordingly we might be okay. Why can’t we just build a decent committed team that knows what it’s doing? Personally I’d be sounding out, well in advance, new manager...

Coppells Lost Coat Put a player on the bench you have no intention of playing.


I for one am thankful that he put Timbe on the bench - if for no other reason than to quell the pre-game Kenyan Facebook tirade.

Re: CONFIMRED - Felipe Araruna

Can someone let me know whether i should be 'whelmed or not?

In lieu of this - i'm gonna say that he isn't going to be successful.

In fact, you could say I think he's gonna be a Felipe-flop.

Re: BFTG Bristol citeh.

The club are paying the price for not having enough sensible parking. Those places you could park for free or pay for and get out in reasonable time have all gone. In my case I catch the bus. So it normally a wait followed by a crush on the bus when it turns up. Not such a big issue or a reasonable...

Re: Next Manager

Heard Hughton on a talkSPORT phone in prolly a month ago where he talked about his potential 'next role' - and iirc it sounded very much like he was prepared to hold out for a Prem job (or at the very least a club with a significant chance of being back there in the short term). Obvs his perspective...

Re: Next Manager

I'm strangely warming to the probability without being a massive supporter of it as a move. I think that would sum up my feelings to it. One thing that the last 4 managers have in common is they all seem proper decent guys. Everyone who knew or met Stam loved him, know people who worked with him pr...

Re: Pre season tour

Any opinion on Adam's set pieces? We've been awful at them (especially corners) since Ian Harte died. I saw Meite win a couple of headers from well-delivered corners on the highlights, but couldn't see who took them.

Also - could one of Morrison, Miazga or McIntyre play a holding midfield role?

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

Not a fan of either side. It's amazing how much things can change in 12 months - this time last year it was Trippier who was the "world-class" full back that everyone was raving about. This year he doesn't even get a mention in these "best of both team" discussions, and it's the ...

Iirc we gave Yann an extension before he'd returned fròm injury. Called out as daft at the time. Didn't Yann then decide to call it a day anyway so never actually took up the extension. Maybe...

Jack Rodwell Josh McEachran Eight or nine years ago, those two (and Wilshere) were the future of England's midfield.
