Re: What got you into supporting RFC?! And when you did who was your nearest team?

Spurs fan. Jimmy Greaves was my hero. Father first took me when I was 4. Stood on the shelf for many years. Moved to Berkshire in 1984. Slowly became detatched from watching Spurs. Due to travel as much as anything else. Cemented as a fan of RFC as went to Simod Cup final in 1988. I hope one day to ...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Presumably we have been successful in flattening the curve - either that or our NHS is much better than we thought. We've been told the whole time we're 2 weeks behind Italy. Its been over 2 weeks since Italy first started having to triage patients and there were the horror stories coming out. This...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Did people catch the quiet comment that the Govt is going to publish a weekly number of people dying of Covid-19 OUTSIDE hospitals? It's not clear whether those deaths (Old people's homes etc) are included in the figures. I’ve just been asking about this on AE. It seems deaths are measured against ...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

It`s all pretty easy for people to follow restrictions now, just a week in, weather nice but not so warm, but it`s obvious some will get bored with it, and what happens when the warm weather arrives? It was being muted yesterday this could last for up to 6 months, that takes us back into the winter...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Don't know if it answers my question but reports McDonalds are shutting all UK stores from tomorrow indefinitely. Surely this is huge? It appears to be in response to not being able to properly enforce social distancing despite their best efforts. Probably inevitable really. How hard is it to shut ...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

So what are your thoughts as regards football getting back in operation. Personally think it’s going to be June at the earliest before getting fans back to games. I actually suspect the leagues/FA may resort to behind closed door games before then and also will consider scrapping FA Cup and playoff...

Re: BFTG Brum

It’s frustrating because he did fairly well at AEK last year and I was really hoping he would settle and do well for us this season. As it stands for next season, Barrow may return and we might also take up the option to sign Masika? With McCleary, Popa and Boye leaving. I can’t see Bowen wanting O...

Someone’s obsessed I like him. Needs time to settle into Championship football. Likewise would play better in a settled team with a defined role within it. As with Meite and Miazga plays with his heart on his sleeve. Gives 120%. If anything was trying to hard to impress in his brief appearances off...

Re: Do we dare to dream?

URZZZZ
Noticed that quite a few of the playoff chasing teams play each other too so there’s always chances to close the gap there



Ideally we need to be playing them to close the gap. As it is someone is going to pick up points whatever the result.

I prefer my what ifs in the form of "what if Gomes hadn't been the hopeless incompetent in charge at the start of the season". What if we'd thanked him for keeping us up, parted ways and appointed Bowen in June? Or had stuck with Clement. After all Bowen is learning on the job. Not sure w...

Re: Best centre back pairing

Teams pressure us but leave Morrison open, the ball has to go to him and he is then not able to find the good pass out of defence and the players who should be receiving the ball are all marked. Nothing unusual in that tactic. That's why Stam offloaded Jake Cooper. Wanted centre backs that were com...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a) sponsored by mid table obscurity

Given how we've structured the Ejaria, Joao and Puscas deals, is signing Pele and Miazga this summer realistic? I doubt we'd have much left in the bank for the wingers we need. Persuade Barrow to come back? I raised this yesterday. I don't know what the deal is with Miazga. He would be a brilliant ...

Re: BFTG Brum

Only trouble is he and Swift are too similar and shouldn't really be starting in the same team. Swift is a far far better all round player. Hardly surprising given their ages and relative experience. I'd say Ejaria is way better defensively than Swift was 2 years ago, and also technically more gift...
