Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (h) sponsored by Scott Murray

Semedo has generally been pretty good and Esteves is excellent going forward, probably more the left midfield cover than full back,. We’re comfortable at left back and right back so would not see any point in buying yet more cover. Is he excellent though? Holmes has provided a greater goal threat a...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (h) sponsored by Scott Murray

Great result, but we're down to the bare minimum 11 on the field, as soon as Semedo came on just looked different, he lost the ball easily, just hope we can get through to January in contention and strengthen, hopefully Swift back, but we need to spend some cash, both full backs and both right and l...

Re: Time to drop Rafael?

Problem is he terrifies me each time he needs to kick the ball under pressure, and sometimes when he's not really under that much pressure, what I've seen of Southwood in the u23's and in Scotland he looks much more comfortable, can't see Rafael being dropped though, especially as pressure is growin...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bournemouth (a) sponsored by Jimmy Quinn

I know he scored but aluko was oxf*rd dreadful. I've never seen a player look so clueless and just get in the way. Start olise. Start Holmes. I think with those 2 changes alone we'd have won this game. Not to be pedantic, but that’s the exact XI we started against Boro, other than Meite in for Seme...

Re: BFTT Bournemouth

Won't bother picking on Esteves again, think everyone can see he's not ready for this level of football. However with Yiadom breaking down with his knee again we are in trouble. Semedo, just ran out of steam, doesn't look fit enough or mobile enough to play the number 10 role, maybe should have come...

Re: Back from whatever that was.

Can't believe some people have even given Esteves 5 I have never seen a professional player look like a school boy scared to get involved, can he sprint ? Only thing I've seen him do well is a few pops at goal. He isn't ready for championship football, our midfield are being pulled out of position t...

Get esteves off, he isn't ready, passes the ball backwards every opportunity, doesn't seem to sprint bad positioning a liability

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (h) sponsored by David Leworthy

Not impressed with Esteves, got the Gunter about him without the defending bit, always looking backwards, doesn't read championship football so far. Semedo, really don't see much quality McIntyre, too slow to partner Morrison, had poor game today Rafael, terrible kicking today Oh well, lets hope the...

Re: BF I follow Barnsley

I totally dislike how we defend corners we just invite pressure allowing the opposition to flood our box, you need to keep someone up top maybe a smaller player with pace, they'll leave a few defenders back. Fair play to Barnsley, think we probably would have scored as they tired, but they will supr...

Hoping for 3-5-2 Formation, Rino and Blackett fullbacks, if it's flat back four, boring and uninspiring management from Bowen.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h) sponsored by end of season apathy

I can’t see top ten Houndy. Another battle at the wrong end of the table I fear. Do you trust Bowen with a new team? I think Bowen has shown himself up to be a clueless manager to be honest. If Bowen is clueless I don't know what most of the managers we've had in recent years would be described as....

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h) sponsored by end of season apathy

To be honest running out of patience with Bowen, can't get this lot motivated (not the first ) we look clueless defending corners since the restart, he doesn't know his best 11, oh well roll on August, start again wait for the second wave of the virus and season cancelled, happy days

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

Enjoyable game, 30 minutes on-wards, all put a shift in. Thought Yiadom had a bit of a mare yesterday, could/should have done better stopping the ball getting crossed for the goals, when he gets forward can't put a decent ball in. Maybe harsh on the first as he went up to help attack and Rino got wh...

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

Target man needed, ball coming back far too easily, Blackett had an absolute mare as did Meite, confused by the McCleary for Gomes sub. All in all a crap afternoon not helped watching behind the goal ifollow. Woods looks a great signing for them.
