Re: Rival Watch

I think I was alone in thinking Barnsley were pretty good at times on weds. Terrible at the back but lively up front QPR are very inconsistent Loleeds- though them and wba are so far clear already Their new manager is starting to make a difference - come in from an incredibly low budget team in Aus...

Re: New manager Brendan Rodgers *confirmed*

Manager of the second placed team in the premier league, who would have thought it all those years ago. If we stuck by him we would have been relegated - Wrong manager for the club at that moment in time. But we'd have probably been promoted the next season and be in the Prem by now if we'd stuck w...

Re: BFTG Wigan

He wasn’t hooked off obviously and got a hat-trick. Even my young daughter shook her head at me and mentioned my appalling punditry. XXX The penalty looked soft for me. Not even sure what it was given for although I was right on top of the incident. Handball? . Yeah don't change your job and going ...

Sack Mark Bowen

Has done well last few games but lacks the experience to get us to the Premiership - we should get Neil Warnock while we can before someone else snaps him up as he knows how to get teams promoted!

Re: The idiots of Twitter thread

The lads on twitter are really being pathetic about the McCleary situation. A consummate professional who has endured a real challenge in a difficult part of his career has just scored for us rounding of a great win and they are having a go at him. The mind boggles. It’s basically just that cretin ...

Re: BFTG - Luton

When is Joao likely to be back from injury? I know a lot of people don't like him, but think if motivated he could be lethal in this league and definitely better than Meite (who I don't rate ... just don't think he has a footballing brain).

Re: BFTG - Luton

One thing i've noticed is that our CBs convert into CMs during games - look at the highlights for the 2nd goal and you see Moore racing towards their penalty box ... I saw him and Miazga doing that again in the second half. Makes a lot of sense when you're playing that formation ... and I don't thin...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (h) sponsored by new manager bounce

Hound Well that was harder than it should have been.

Excellent and in total control for an hour, then the Moore injury and the poor conceded goal rattled us. Never quite got control back but Millwall didn’t really come close again



The overhead kick towards the end was pretty close ...

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

I remember Tetek from when he was a 9 year old playing in the Oxford Youth League - he's only 16 and already playing for the U18s and now in the U23 squad. Osario is also the same age and also from Oxford. Both really great talents.

Re: Manager v luck etc

Gomes had a fair share of 'luck' personally last year. The two key games for him were Ipswich (a) - where they missed an absolute sitter in the last min, and Wigan (h) where we played really poorly and came out with 3 points - partly due to Wigan utterly switching off on a drop ball I think it was....

Re: Manager v luck etc

I was thinking about this the other day too - how some managers somehow get a reputation for being good just due to a bit of luck - that can come in the form of a particular strikers suddenly having a hot streak; I personally think Jaap Stam was lucky in that sense in his first season and has since ...
