Re: MATCHWATCH : West Bromwich Albion (h) sponsored by Neil Clement

I wonder if Bowen might field a team similar to this as West Brom wouldn't expect it. He could put Meite on the bench (he has played a lot recently) and start Timbe there instead, with like you say Adam picking the passes and Puscas in the middle for crosses in. If you're resting Swift and Ejaria, ...

Bored of an attention seeking individual spaffing the board with incessant repetitive nonsense?

Lets start a thread with aforementioned attention seeker's name in the title.

Yep, total knee jerk reaction to a few wins by the owners. He is totally unproven, and there is going to be literally no one better than us queuing up to hand a contract to a guy in his first management job, with an expensive squad, that SHOULD be comfortably avoiding relegation. There was no viabl...

Re: Return to 3-5-2?

Another disappointing result and performance. 2 points from 4 games since Joao's injury. I repeat my opinion. Our system relies upon a striker who can play his role; it's shit without him. I suppose we may have seen it last night but Miazga's injury and McIntyre's suspension put a stop to it. It's ...

Re: FA Cup 19/20

However, lose the next 2 games and Bowen might decide that the play offs are too much of a stretch and it will be worth risking the First Team squad playing an extra game next Tuesday night. If we win one and lose one of the next two that will make Bowen's decision harder - but the truth is that wh...

Re: BFTG - Forest v2

All the praise for Olise makes it all the stranger he didn't get a chance when Swift and Ejaria were out. Would imagine he wasn't hitting the standards expected in training at the time and we were nearer the bottom of the table so more of a "risk" - with a 12 point buffer to that (13 now)...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (a) sponsored by Eamon Dunphy

Would play Puscas in this one, Baldock on the wing. Agree, Ejaria is wasted on the left and Baldock doesn’t have enough to play as a lone striker. Adam has proven himself to be a viable option but let’s play everyone in their best positions. Could also try Obita on the left but think that’s harsh o...

Re: The generic transfer thread

The player himself openly said he didn’t want to return to Bradford. This is, by the way, the same player that totally flopped last year at Bradford Not sure why Bradford would want a striker who clearly doesn’t want to play for them. It is pretty sad if it’s just to stop “Swindon” considering how ...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Swindon’s only goalscorer recalled back to Bradford. Interesting development especially as the player himself said he didn’t want to go back He's scoring goals, Bradford need a goalscorer and want promotion. Not really sure how its that interesting or newsworthy. The player himself openly said he d...

Re: Upset the Apple cart.

Dont think you will find many top teams that keep playing their back up player when their starter returns from injury based on the team performance. Gunter has done well since being brought back into the fold but that is what you should expect of a back up player. Yiadom has been one of our most im...

Re: BFTG QPR

Interesting views as always. For me Eze is currently ahead of Ejaria. Eze wasn't playing against Pele or Gunter last night he was playing wherever the space was. He is excellent at drifting into space between the lines and then attacking the back four if he gets the ball in the right area. He is al...

You can't just say "Let's ignore 40% of the games" Why not ignore the most recent four games? A manager is judged over all his games. The team will go down or stay up based on what happened under Gomes plus ALL the games following. The most recent games are two away draws, an away win, a ...

Without the first 4, we're LLWLDD So 5 from 6. About 0.8ppg. Which isn't great, but isn't awful and is certainly an improvement on how Gomes finished. So, pretty horrific then if we're honest. 37points over the season, dead cert relegation. My farts are an improvement on how Gomes finished, that's ...

Re: BFTG - Luton

Swift is not the player Stam bought, he is certainly not the player of the last two seasons. In the last 2/3 games he’s played at the highest level and been effective, it’s like a new signing. And when he doesn’t work there’s Ejaria.... bit difficult for opposition to shutdown both of these players...
