Re: Rival Watch

Bristol lose.

If RFC win tomorrow we can cut the gap to the play offs to 9 points. With Brum winning it is pretty much a "must win" game tomorrow.

Re: February perspective

I know that I am putting on my RTG's but it really does seem to me that our next 6 league games are all winnable. None of Hull, WBA, Leeds or Sheff Wed are on particularly good form and then we have two of the bottom sides. Our defence has been strong recently and so it is all about how we perform g...

Re: Blackett to Turkey.

After being what you might say being charitable has been erratic in terms of performances over the last couple of seasons there is no doubt that Blackett has been very good lately. Some players (such as Robson-Kanu who in particular stands out) seem to be able to turn the magic on just when their c...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (a) sponsored double header part 2

I am expecting something like: Walker Watson McIntyre Osho Burley Richards Rimonhota Aluko McCleary Olise Loader (if fit) or Boye (if fit) Good chance to blood the two new guys and maybe a few first teamers on the bench this time. Annoying re the new guys. I had forgotten that. In which case I thin...

Good chance to blood the two new guys and maybe a few first teamers on the bench this time.

February perspective

There has been a bit of doom and gloom on here recently but putting things into perspective the end of Dec and January has been quite a good period for us. We really have had an unprecedentedly tough run of games and 5 of the 7 were away too (opponents current league position in brackets): Preston (...

Re: Ho(ut)we

With Teddy Howe there are two main issues. Firstly at the age of 21 he needs to be playing week in and week out and he probably won't get that chance here with Yiadom ahead of him. Secondly if he is Nigel Howe's son (I have also hard it said that he is a nephew so not sure which is true) then breaki...

Re: BFTG Bristol citeh.

I thought it was an enjoyable well contested game between two good Championship teams who pretty much cancelled each other out. The difference was they took their only chance whereas Ejaria fluffed our best one. At this level teams huff and puff but don’t generally have enough quality. Obviously we ...

Re: FA Cup 19/20

The fact is that the FA Cup is worth very little financially whereas promotion to the PL is worth squillions. And so IMO the next two games will decide our approach to the FA Cup replay. Two wins and we will have 43 points from 30 and have a very realistic chance of the play offs - 30/32 off the las...

morganb So what's happened to Boye - not in the squad today and wasn't on the bench in mid week.


Can only think Boye is injured or his loan is being ended early.

Re: Form

I think we need to win the next two against Bristol and Cardiff to start looking like potential play off material. 43 points after 30 games and then 32 off the last 16 is doable (10 wins 2 draws and 4 defeats would do) as we have many games against lower ranked sides in the last 16 games. Also 9 of ...

Southwoods an interesting one. The others can all go from that second list Southwood has just got a new deal till summer 2021. Back on loan at Hamilton Academical, but I strongly suspect he'll be given the chance to claim the number 2 slot in the summer. Because otherwise what's the point of signin...

Re: Blackett to Turkey.

I always thought Watson looked good when he burst onto the scene, disappointed it didn’t quite work for him That injury really set him back. He was great in that U18 team and looked very promising in his first couple of appearances as you say. You could see how a long term injury could really oxf*r...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (a) sponsored by Neil Webb

If we are to have even the vaguest aspiration to close the gap to the play off contenders then I think this is a must not lose game. A draw or win here would set us up for wins against Bristol and Cardiff (neither of whom are in great form) and if so we could close the gap between ourselves and 6th ...
