Re: colours to the mast NOW

We are 4 points adrift of safety, could be more after tonight/tomorrow. Plymouth could well overtake us and still have a game in hand. But we are playing well in the Cup and people can see progress. Will we stay up? Yes or no? I'm an RTG, but one who's "seen it all before". I'm bricking i...

Re: JM is confident we'll stay up

-1 Then we risked finances by keeping the majority of our squad together and continuing to pay Premiership wages, only to fail to achieve promotion. Mark two. We then had to sell the majority of our recognisable stars, or loan them out to get them off the wage bill. Mark three. We then failed to br...

Re: Bottom 3

because someone is bound to go on a Fulham-like run. it could be us!! ffs you people need to get a f*cking grip on reality. We have the chief scout in charge (and not an extremely experienced and reasonably successful manager) he's a nice guy - granted. But we are massively in the sh*t - there's a ...

Re: Gunnarsson

Incredible performance. Not much else to be said, simply incredible. 34 looks like the legs have gone, liverpools left side tonight with Yossi and then Babel comes to around £16million and gunnarsson pocketed the pair of them. for good measure he nuts'd their left back on 3 occasions and whipped in...

Re: RUMOUR - The Return of Seol?

Seol has much much more of a footballing brain than Kebe, but Kebe has more pace and IMO skill. He just can't make good decisions. Kebe certainly does have the skill to beat players and it isn't down to pace, though obviously that's a big part of his game. He's actually got very good control. He's ...

Re: Mooney on his way out?

Doesn't matter how bad he was, he would have been better than nothing when we were down to using Rasiak twice in a couple of days, on his own with no bench back up. LLoyd Owusu wasn't great but did a job up front, for a time Awful footballer for this level, but still scored a few goals for us and k...

Re: Newcastle Utd (h) - Back from the game

Caskey did f*ck all as per usual, apart from the free kick. Not a bad goal for a fat bloke.

Yes, I remember that match when the ball accidentally hit him as well.


His lumbering around up front did at least distract the opposition defence for a bit.

Re: When Should the New Manager Come In?

You dont see that if fans arent behind a manager or a situation it can have a negative effect? Do you suffer with getting sand in your ears by any chance? You seem to have introduced a totally new question and provided my answer to it for me ! I certainly don;t see it's much of an issue whether BMc...

Two goals in eleven appearances is pretty poor at that level considering there are some clamouring for us to recall him.

Re: Back From The Game: Liverpool

I'm also tearing my hear out at negative posts on here. Some are saying that a decent Championship side would have beaten Liverpool today. Lets be serious, this team is still 7th in the Premiership with some world class players and, whilst they are at the lowest they have been for years, a draw was...

SouthDownsRoyal Where is all the love for McDermott now? :lol:


A decent performance against 'Pool and it'll come flooding back.

Fickle lot, football fans.


Possibly - however a decent performance against Liverpool won't make a difference to our league position. So should be treated as irrelevant.

Re: McAnuff - the rare shining light from the season so far...

Don't think this was Coppell's decision at all, he was consulted over the course of the season on a retained list with the DoF and gave his opinions on where the squad was and what would be the likely players to go. Any decision to act on that was Hammond's and his alone as there was no manager at ...

Re: Where has that dressing room gone?

The team weren't a shambles before, they played some good football but a combination of defensive errors from 'experienced pros' like Ingimarsson and our lack of options up front (spurning a good 5 or 6 excellent chances per game) were costing us. Now it's the same apart from we're not creating any...
