Re: BFTG - Cardiff

Depends on who they play and whether or not they can bully them into submission, there's not a lot of craft and guile on show from one of Colin's teams

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

It's not really true that with WBs we only have one defender on the wing, is it? Since we have an extra CB and the three can shuffle left-right we more or less have two defenders per wing, don't we? We were letting in goals pre-season because the 442 FBs were stranded up field, once because McIntyr...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

It's early days for this new system but the weakness will be against teams who pack the midfield and force us out wide. That's exactly what happened in the second half vs Wycombe and we struggled. I don't think we have enough quality at wing back. The weakness is out wide where there is just a wing...

Re: Where will we finish?

Hard to imagine this is a false dawn. It wasn't three lucky breakaways. We had a plan, a solid defence, a great midfield and an excellent strike force. We should improve significantly, too, as the players get to know each other better. Then factor in the reality that we have had a long time with re...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

I think we just found our best 11 for the moment, the only thing ambiguous is whether Rino or Pele should be partnering Ejaria. Rino deserves to be starting but I understand Jose's tactical inclination if Pele is providing better defensive cover. We might have a selection headache in midfield now t...

Re: BFTG - Wycombe Away

If we were playing 5-3-2 which i think we were i didn't understand the reluctance of RIchards and Rinomhota to overlap. We had no width as a result. Quite often they would play the first half of a one-two with the CM, but then when the CM made the body angle to pass it into the space down the wing ...

Re: BFTG - Wycombe Away

The ground could not cope with a large away support with long queues for food drink etc. Also why make it unreserved when you have a sell out away support? That caused problems with some fans arguing and nearly coming to blows. I liked the omni queue snaking out the car park when there was another ...

Re: BFTG - Wycombe Away

Raphael also did well, not sure he could do much for their goal. Totally agree, but if it had be Virginia in goal some would be saying he should've got a hand to it (ie Sheff Weds 2nd goal) Pele was disappointing. but... I thought Pelé was excellent Interesting the different views on the same perfo...

Hound Obita?

Love it...


A big +1

What happened in his recovery - last I heard (around the last couple of pre-season games) he was a few weeks away from working with a ball.

I hope they haven't rushed him in

Re: CONFIMRED - Lucas Boye

Interesting to see what happens with him. Does Gomes want him as the big guy to lead the line and hold the ball up? Does Gomes want to play two big rough diamonds wide in Boye and Meite for the big diagonal outball and to bully full backs attacking the far post? Would that mean Barrow upfront? In b...

Re: BFTG - Baggies

Increasingly not wanting Oliveira to stay beyond his loan. I don't get this view, not singling you out 3points as I've seen a few such comments. IMO he's a must, or someone like him at least, as it's been a breath of fresh air to have a proper striker up top. Yes Meite's in good form at the moment ...

Re: BFTG - Baggies

I was really excited about Loader. I really want him to do well. I'm starting to think he just doesn't have what it takes up top though. Another lost boy performance from a player with obvious talent. Big step up from U23's to Championship. Has time on his side. If Gomes didn't think he was up to t...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Looks like not a bad performance all in - have to remember that Bayern II play week in week out in the German League system - currently 2nd in the Regionalliga Bayern (4th tier) which is a decent level to test themselves at compared to the PL2. Agree with this completely, they were clearly a side t...

Re: BFTG Forest Home

Qualified ref, so know a bit more than most.... he will have to answer why he gave a foul or no foul for every decision. Any KMI’s he missed mean he can’t score over average, too many marks below average and he will be moved to lesser games. His management of the Murphy challenge meant he had to bo...

Re: Back from the ****

tee peg Drop the lot of them and play the under 23s next week.

Whilst I agree with the sentiment IMO they should all be left in and subjected to the thuggery that Colin' s 11 will subject them to and public humiliation on Sky.

I normally can't condone booing but the players got what they deserved.

Re: Message to Tim Dellor and Konathon Low

Did anyone hear Dellor having a near break down last night calling Aluko a disgrace? Aluko is his new Vydra, albeit much more deservedly. He lost it. He was an inch away from losing control there. Who could blame him, Aluko is as dislikeable as his sister. What have either of them done to justify t...
