Re: BFTG - Baggies

What is that ludicrous ‘plan’ that we’ve witnessed over the last few weeks concerning Swift taking a corner and Obita standing two feet away? 99% of the time Swift still takes one of his ‘hit first man’ efforts which means Obita is wasting his time and could be actually in the box doing something us...

Re: BFTG - Forest

That's why you should never leave! I think the Forest goal did go out but to be fair to the linesman it would have been imposible for him to spot from his position. If he can't see it he can't give it. At least justice was done and it turned an ordinary afternoon in to a memerable one. Ref was terr...

Re: BFTG - Blackpool

Full credit to Bowen for giving the first 11 a fullly deserved break. 4 days rest I believe. Considering Blackpool fielded their strongest team. In that context the make shift team today including the substitutions weren't awlfull. Biggest concern is the lack of depth in the squad. Fair number play...

Re: BFTG - Blackpool

If the phone caller was, say a plumber, you would have most likely said “there’s some guy (or bloke) on the radio says we should have picked the first team”. So was the problem really in what he said, or the fact he was a company director? Just asking. I think he was trying to compare running his c...

His point was that in his company where he is the director (he presumably makes presentations, maybe a motivational speaker - who knows), that if people paid to hear him talk, they would be disappointed and it would be unfair ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (a) sponsored by Neil Webb

My point is (after getting a lovely parking spot on Victoria embankment grrrr....) is that why doesn’t the EFL ever give any consideration to the travelling fans. It would be obvious that most RFC supporters would have had left at 10 at the latest, so why do an inspection at 12? They had already dec...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Swansea City (a) sponsored by Andy Legg & Jason Bowen

Not seeing a great manager in Gomes. However, it’s not his fault a goalkeeper can’t hold onto a ball, strikers that can’t score from 5 yards, midfielders who can’t pass accurately to someone from 5 yards. They have no speed and are unable to press the opposition which every successful club does. It’...

Re: BFT whatever the hell that was

So what are the tactics or game plan, I have no idea. However, my questions are..... 1) Why does Rafael pass the ball from a goal kick to someone under pressure five yards away rather than to someone standing in open space on the other side of the pitch? 2) When it’s a corner, it is usual to put the...

Hang on a minute Old Man Andrews.
If £32 is nothing, why did you berate me for suggesting that we stop the Twenty’s Plenty initiative as you believe we should be flying the flag for cheaper pricing?

Re: Twenty’s Plenty

Where does stooping down to the other clubs level get you? We should be at the forefront of trying to change the ticket pricing and indeed Ipswich gave up cheap tickets this season in direct response for us doing it for them. Just because other clubs are greedy bastards doesn't mean we need to be. ...

Twenty’s Plenty

Apologies if there is a thread on this already but I couldn’t find it. Having just forked out a disgraceful £66 for two Bristol City tickets on Good Friday, it occurred to me that seeing as no other f....ers wish to join in with our highly commendable approach, isn’t it time we kicked it into touch?...

Re: BFTG Leeds Home

A group of Leeds supporters near me were asked to leave - someone complained to the stewards. I know there's an instinctive reaction against grassing people up, but you could have done that. I did complain to the steward, but he said there was nothing he could do about it, especially in hospitality...

Re: BFTG Leeds Home

You could have sat somewhere else? Anyway - agree about Swift. I watched it on Sky as I was working late and frankly it confirmed exactly my thoughts on Swift. He gets the ball and is in a position to release it quickly, instead he tries to go round players, and then do it again, unfortunately he's...

Re: BFTG Leeds Home

Firstly, raving on about Leeds. I thought Sheffield Utd were a much better and stronger all round ‘team’ than LUFC. Things I don’t get 1) constantly complaining about the size of the squad but there never seems to be anyone to select from. Understand injuries, but you can’t rely on one loanee strike...

Re: BFTG Rotherham

Personally thought they were very similar teams. However I am now convinced of two things. 1. You get to the top of this league by playing at speed, quick passing and pinning the opposition defence back to make your chances. 2. You get results by not allowing the opposition to play and get comfortab...

True, but it does sort of show that the other teams can pull something out of the fire when needed most.
