Re: MATCHWATCH : Wycombe Wanderers (a)

Couple of things: Joao can be the penalty taker - but not like that. Watch Ribery or someone. That technique is ridiculous. The technique isn't the issue. I don't think any of us here can teach a top championship professional striker about penalty technique. The issue is simply his mind. Far too em...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wycombe Wanderers (a)

Couple of things: Joao can be the penalty taker - but not like that. Watch Ribery or someone. That technique is ridiculous. Play full backs at full back. (That we didn't get a back up for Richards/let Obita go was ridiculous) When you're chasing the game against a narrow low block, don't take off yo...

Re: Michael Olise new contract

Can't find a general Micahel Olise thread - also can't find a 'how do you pronounce players name thread' :) So... Pre match on Radio Berks, the players introduce themselves. Olise says "I'm Michael Ol-ees, I'm playing in midfield' He literally says this pre recorded thing every time he plays. W...

Re: CONFIMRED: Lucas Joao

This thread is HOF worthy. It's HNA distilled. Lovely (totally missed) Millsy Joke having to be explained pages later, a NewCorkSeth self own + in joke all amongst some good old fashioned FFP explainers from the in house accountants and the whole thread falling off a cliff.

Thing of beauty.

Re: January window

I think he's doing well, and really hope he does well. However, and I think I've made this pint before on here, Penalties shouldn't count towards the goalscoring records we judge players by. 4 of his 7 goals were penalties. Let's celebrate good penalty takers in their own right, but not muddy the g...

Re: January window

Don’t know if anyone has mentioned this but Osho has been sent on loan to the Boondocks.Should have tried harder to keep him,far better than Holmes or Estevez.A RB is now a priority signing;I worry Yids has a serious problem and neither Holmes or Estevez fit the bill,while Watson appears to be on h...

Snowball Question is:.

And to just suggest a dampener on things... Blackman in that ridiculous
purple patch he had, was awesome. Did he ever do similar before or since?


Finely enough, I put this in my post then deleted it. Figured it might de-rail the topic!

Most important player ever?

Ridiculous title perhaps, but... Is Joao the single most important player we’ve ever had? Without him we’re organised and ok as a team. Put him in the lineup and everything seems to work better - and goals! This is not to say he’s the best player we’ve had of course, but take Shorey out of the team ...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Fair play to them but surely Petes cherry picked those responses? No way there weren't a load of "we should be beating teams like Reading, thought we were the better team, ref cheated us, Readings a shit hole, its because they're used to no fans etc" posts? The thread I found these on wer...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Bristol City (Home) https://www.otib.co.uk/ Reading are a very good team with some above average players for this division - would love to have Joao, Meite, Ejaria, better than anything we have. We didn't play that well, but they were simply better and some of our players just couldn't cope with the...

Just played and beat Real Madrid (who his brother Nacho plan for) as captain of Cadiz in La Liga.

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

Surely the issue is the same soft embargo? There were rumours that ‘talks ended badly’ with Semedo which probably means everything was agreed until we said ‘hold on while we get approval’ Mendes was probably holding on too long also! Why else would we have Riquelme training this long and not signing?!
