Re: BFTG - Wednesday (H)

I think the starting 11 was always likely to be lacking a bit of balance today. If Quinn wasn't injured I think he'd have started but that option wasn't available. John hasn't really impressed me when he's started games and certainly seems unlikely to last 90 minutes so I can understand the thought ...

Re: 1 year ago today

Presumably it because it's not direct from a corner i.e. ball straight in net or put in net without opponent touching the ball (excl. own goals) and instead it's from a resulting melee following a failed clearance. That should count as from a corner than me. They don't properly clear the corner and...

Re: Tim Dellor

I don't think he was that bad Yeah, a bee in his bonnet over Vydra but tbf it is one of the top contentious issues about the club right now (you only have to look at this forum to see that) and whichever way he goes he will be at odds with some of the fans. I do agree though, it is irksome to hear ...

Re: How impressed are you with BMcD's return to the club?

Delighted to have him back. Feel a closer connection to the club since his return. Yesterday was the biggest disappointment so far but it will take time. If we give him three years I'm confident he'll get us promoted again. Unfortunately I think that promotion would be more likely to be from League...

Re: Something wrong at the club?

I don't think it's anywhere near the best squad assembled. The 106/8th in the Premier League team was significantly better for one thing. Even looking outside that - perhaps even if you limited it to past McDermott teams - I think we've been stronger in the goalkeepers, full backs, wingers and strik...

Re: Team for 'uddersfield (Cup)

I'd expect/want McDermott to put out his strongest team - he always tended to take the FA Cup seriously in his first spell with us and I think he'll want to try and have another decent cup run if possible, particularly considering our recent performance in the league. From the Bristol City game, I'd...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

I'm amazed with the positive remarks, which I'm sure would not have appeared quite in the same manner had we not got that injury time goal. It's almost as if the final result is a significant part of the match! :wink: After our recent run, the most important thing today was the win and great that w...

Re: Back from the sofa - Brentford (H)

I predicted at halftime that Hector would get sent off if he wasn't subbed and so it proved to be. IMO another questionable decision by McDermott as Hector was clearly walking a tightrope from early on in the 2nd half, after he escaped a second yellow for what seemed quite a bad foul under the nose...

Re: Welcome back Brian!

Absolutely delighted to see Brian back. The club needs stability and I'm confident he can provide it. If he could build something based on our style in the second half of 2008-10 then fantastic but either way I'd back him to be successful if given the right support. I was probably in a minority in t...

Re: Hull City (A) Match Thread - Sponsored by a Brucey Bonus

Really poor substitution to bring Fernandes on instead of Keown.

We need a permanent manager in before Sunday really.

Re: Welcome back Brian?

Reckon Olly Holloway has just nailed it: Old owner wants his mate back, new owners don't. If so, time the old one is reminded of the saying 'He who pays the piper calls the tune'. Or time the new owners were reminded me of reality and what Brian achieved at the club? I think we need him in for Sund...

Re: Welcome back Brian?

I'd 100% prefer Brian McDermott to Oscar Garcia. Brighton played pretty dull football under him from what I saw.p and reading through some Brighton forums suggests we might be back to the passing the ball around our back 4 approach which hasn't served us well the last few times we've tried it. Garci...

Re: Welcome back Brian?

If the owners of a club aren't fully behind a manager it won't end well. That and the fans being split on him as well. No appointment would be universally popular - I think McDermott would be received far more favourably than a lot of other candidates. This forum possibly consists of a more vocal/p...

Re: Welcome back Brian?

I have heard from a reliable source that the reason that our beloved Brian hasn't signed on the line yet is due to Gunter! Apparently him as a ring leader along with a number of other players have stood their ground to halt him arriving as the new boss. Thoughts...... I find it hard to believe to b...

Not sure I get why everyone is so desperate to have BMD back in charge. Several reasons, really: 1. Weren't we all a bit bored of the '90s style hoofball? The direct and fast approach scored goals against weaker opposition but proved really simple for average premiership sides to break up. There wa...

Re: Welcome back Brian?

tonyrfc Go away Brian, you're not welcome here


Yeah now you mention it, what did he ever do for us?

I can understand not everyone wanting him to return but some of the lack of respect towards him is breathtaking.
