Re: January Transfer Window

I always naturally get nervous when I hear rumours about big signings from overseas. We currently have plenty of talent in CM. I guess if we don't make Pele permanent and don't extend Adam's contract, there are roles for them. But if you look at building a squad for promotion, you'd see Swift and E...

Re: BFTG - Forest

My life some of the lads trying to get to the Forest fans over the blue banner is laughable. Just what is the fascination with charging to the away fans? Can understand giving a bit back to them but get a life! Thought C1871 ethos was not to goad opposition fans and focus on our club?! Maybe this is...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (a) sponsored by Dylan Kerr

With all this striker talk, why not go back to playing Baldock in behind Puscas? Seemed to work before. If we’re now saying 1 up top is the way to go, and Puscas can’t do that (which I personally don’t believe), we might as well cash in while his stock is high. Only a few games ago we were lamenting...

Re: BFTG - Forest

What kind of morons boo an Ex-Reading loan player, who was fully committed whilst wearing the shirt. He did not depart under a cloud (as far as I know), was not utilised effectively by the manager and frankly is probably better than any of our current strikers.... pathetic behaviour :| No...but bas...

Re: Speculation - Andy Rinomhota

Distinctly average player people love to rate as young and academy. Feel like I've heard that before see Liam Kelly and many before - are people starting to turn on Rino now? Rino is quality, but out of form for many reasons. This. Second season is always tough. He's having to do more of the donkey...

Re: Upset the Apple cart.

Gunter and blackett, Moore and Morrison, Meite and João. It’s working. Not necessarily the best players make the best ‘team’. Bowen is going to have some tough choices going forward. When fit, do Yiadom Miazga Baldock Puscas Richards and Obita come back in? Or do you not upset the Apple cart and st...

Re: BFTG Stoke

What gives us the divine right to expect to be challenging for promotion every year? We’re around the 8th smallest club in the division - we’re currently positioned roughly where we should be. The club has largely lost its soul and that needs rectifying before we can even start challenging at the to...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Stoke City (a) sponsored by Ibrahima Sonko

Performance levels are concerning aren’t they. Team were disjointed at Barnsley, and sound similar today. Think it was the right set up, ie the diamond. But that relies on attacking full backs...why then did Blackett start over Richards? Lack of creativity & shots are a real issue. I personally...

Re: Rival Watch

I think I was alone in thinking Barnsley were pretty good at times on weds. Terrible at the back but lively up front QPR are very inconsistent Loleeds- though them and wba are so far clear already They carved through us a few times in the 1st half. Not great at the back though which is the frustrat...

Glad I’ve had the hour journey home to digest the performance Instead of putting an emotional post straight after the game; some ridiculous comments both on here and on Twitter!

Re: BFTG Birmingham

The chemistry isn't there with this group of players.They are not a team. I’ve said this many times - we’ve not had a team for yonks now - recruitment is the big issue. That’s why Baldock is such a big player for us now - technically probably the worst of our strikers, but a proper team player. I d...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

Wouldn`t have thought extra revenue from away fans is top of the owners priorities, if it was they would have dumped twenty`s plenty a long time ago. The last thing we need is up to 4000 noisy away fans turning it into in effect a home game for them, no other clubs do it, why the hell should we? Be...

Re: BFTG Leeds

Deserved a point, and a solid effort. But there is a balance to be struck between avoiding overcomplication in defence, and becoming afraid to play. I was struck by how often our CBs contented themselves with an anywhere-will-do clearance, even when they had time to take a touch. Playing the ball f...
