Re: UEFA Nations League

Seriously? No comment about that worryingly poor performance last night? I suppose 3 weeks without a game might be a factor but it looks like we’ve been rumbled already. I love the fact that we try to play out from the back but too many players have catastrophic mistakes in their lockers just waiti...

Birmingham City was 15 quid this year, seem to remember it was 20 quid the year before.

I put Tranmere to start with, then went back and edited to MK Dons. Not sure why I did that. I'll stick with Tranmere

The Playoffs 2018/19 edition

Predicted winners: Villa Charlton MK Dons Watched a pretty good game between Newport and Mansfield last night. Newport had a couple of clear chances but were denied by a couple of fantastic saves by the Mansfield keeper. Newport were fortuitous to get a penalty late on for their equaliser (which was...

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

Has any one country provided all 4 finalists for the two main European club competitions before? Or 4 out of 6 in the "good old days" of the Cup Winners Cup?

Re: Ups & Downs 2018/19

Would love to see Solihull come up through the playoffs, shame (Jobi aside) they didn't quite manage to get automatic. They're massively punching above their weight, they've got a tiny ground and will probably have the squad broken up over the summer if they don't make it. I went a couple of times ...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

I don't mind Portman Road. I think if the tickets were 10 quid cheaper then many of the grumbles about the ground wouldn't be so vociferous, 35 quid is far too much for what it is.

Re: BFTG Birmingham (A)

I was there (nice local one for me). First half I thought we were ok to decent. The game seemed to be played at two paces though which I found odd, either walking pace or all out frantic, but at least when we did lift the tempo we carried a threat. However, we were guilty of quite a few sloppy passe...

3points I cannot remember one occasion where Jaakkola kicked the ball long.


He did a few times tbf, generally in the direction of Bod. Agree with most of the rest of your post.

Re: Clement's wishy-washy starting 11's...

Arguably, it isn't the "wishy washy" starting 11s that seem to be the problem, more the second half of matches. Generally we've not been too bad in the first half of games (and again last night).

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

When is Mark Hughes getting sacked? Great player, terrible manager! He's got worse, but that might be a product of the teams he's having to manage, but he wasn't always a poor manager. He did well for Wales, Blackburn and, to an extent, City before things have certainly gone downhill. I think he di...

Re: BFTG West Brom

I've not seen the game or highlights yet, but just wanted to offer some thoughts. From what I've seen so far Walker looks a solid keeper, made some good saves at Preston, and again in the QPR defeat, and yet from the comments on here you'd think he was Peter van der Kwaak reincarnated. I'm a keeper ...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

The problems are all to do with behind the scenes stuff and three if not four managers squads packaged, with a promotion or bust mentality that starts at the top. Even if Bruce had got promoted, the other issues would have remained. Anything sound familiar about this... (although maybe not quite pr...
