Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (a) sponsored by Dylan Kerr

not just saying it for sentimental reasons but i feel shane long could be a realistic option next season will be 33 in a couple of weeks ooc in the summer doubt he will find another premier league club. It depends on how realistic he would be regarding wages i guess. Could easily see him playing ov...

Re: Blackett to Turkey.

If Blackett wants to go, I honestly wouldn't blame him...he probably remembers the stick he's received from the fans; one game he was subbed as a sub when he made one bad mistake - I felt genuinely embarrassed at the time. I go back 50 years and apart from a chap called Malcolm Swain (only older fa...

Re: BFTG Fulham

Watching the first goal back on the highlights just emphasises what a glorious passage of play it was. Ejaria was actually in the Fulham half when they broke forward. He rushed back to win a tackle just outside our area with the loose ball falling to Blackett in a central position inside our area. H...

Re: BFTG - Preston (a)

Press conferences are easy when you win. When Stam started people loved his press conferences. When Clement started, people loved his press conferences and said he was refreshingly honest and open. Same for Gomes. Now same for Bowen. If he starts doing badly (which hopefully won't happen), he'll be...

Re: BFTG - Preston (a)

Unrelated, but I notice Blackett and Ejaria are wearing short sleeve shirts and gloves. As J Low said, I just don’t get that. It’s quite simple and logical. The extremities of the body are affected more by the cold. Watch cross country or road runners in the winter and you will see numerous athlete...

Re: BFTG QPR

It’s surprising how many people, including J Low, failed to spot what led to the row between Gunter and Rafael (and of course the obsessive Gunter haters were only too quick to point the finger directly at him!). Rafael came very close to gifting QPR an equaliser by taking a quick and very poor kick...

Re: BFTG - Derby

I agree with first poster on here. We were lucky to be honest and 3 nil flattered us. I'll go through each half and then do player ratings. 1st Half When I saw the line up for us I was shocked at how little defensive cover and mobility we had in the middle. We started brightly and João setup Meite ...

Re: BFTG Stoke

We were shite. Sorry but there was little to be positive about apart from an away draw. ZERO shots on target all game. Just ‘safely’ passing it around the back. Adam did ok , no one was really shit. Blackett did ok. Given there was talk of 9 points against these easier sides this was just dismal. M...

Re: BFTT Barnsley

If I was a Reading player I'd be asking for a transfer, the team is a mess and my career would be going nowhere. Absolute shit-show. What is our gameplan?! oxf*rd hell. Pass to Ejaria, watch him inevitably lose it because he's either got no options or he spends three hours dawdling on the ball? The...

Re: BFTT Barnsley

Awful performance. Ejaria needs to help us earn the right to play our football. First do the dirty stuff. Close down, press the opponent. Win us the ball. Then play your silky football. And make sure you release the ball earlier. Use your twinkle toes when it's necessary. But, please first of all s...

Crikey I have been criticised for over rating a player.Meite.At least he had a moment with the goal. I would agree though,that he should not start if everyone is fit. IMHO I thought Richards and Morrison were very bad and in normal circumstances would be dropped for Wednesday. On the free kick,most...

Re: BFTG Birmingham

Just seen the free kick again. Rafael should have done better imo. Nope top corner. It was an excellent strike, no doubt. But the wall was not in the right place nor was there enough people in it. Keeper openly invited the taker to put it in the corner he did. Anyway.... This is my first time in a ...

Re: How sustainable are we?

OK, so I will answer seriously. I'm unaware of what the club are doing in terms of some of the big hitters e.g. energy consumption, fuel use, water use, choice of club vehicles, etc. but they do seem to be missing some of the small, obvious things e.g. clearly marked and readily available recycling ...

Some funny reactions on their forums, crap draw but winnable is the general feeling. plucked this one out. 25 mins from London, decent stadium, awful team, a town full of pubs and 3hrs away. Some of you must live in Monte Carlo if you think it's the worst draw possible. An over-nighter in Oxford or...

Re: BFTG Wigan

Half our team immediately appealed for handball. Don't think the defender got the ball after he handled it. He wiped Boye out as the ball rolled out of play untouched. Under the current interpretation of handball, it was a clear penalty which is where the EFL pundits get confused because they don't...
