Re: What has changed so much from last season?

Money and fame and big teams talk. But not now and for as long as we remain in contention for promotion with the prospect of him starting next season as an establish member of a top flight team rather than sat on Dortmund’s bench. But that was what happened with Sidders. I always fear that happenin...

Re: What has changed so much from last season?

I highly doubt it. Crazy as it may sound but he would be a great fit for somebody like dortmund Oyeh because Dai has a record of letting our most promising players go. Plus would be fairly stupid from Olise to leave at this stage when next year he could well be playing guaranteed Prem football as i...

Re: BTFT - Blackburn

Ok, so WTF is going on. Serious WTAF is going on? Screw Stam's shit play chancing it to Wembley. Not fussed about McDermott's team who long balled it up to the PL and came crashing back down. I'd even say I don't remember Team 106 exciting me as much as this team. FSB's team same. These guys are ju...

Re: BFIT - Wycombe (H)

Seen Joao's goal - absolute class. First touch, turn and strength = world class, defenders did nothing wrong. Goal of the Season contender... anyone can smack a ball in front 30 yards, few can do that Couldn't agree more. In my view, the biggest difference between the 1st and 2nd tiers is the quali...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (a) sponsored by Chris Casper

Players just look a lot more confident this year. Could be Pauno could be Bowen going - or just a bit of momentum For my money you could put it down to one or more of four factors. Joao being fit Laurent giving the midfield balance and steel Olise adding end product to his game Paunovic being an im...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by things to come

A few observations. The first XI is top 6 quality. We've been performing as less than the sum of the parts for a long time. Joao is the single most pivotal player we've had in recent memory. Not since before the glory days have we been so reliant on one player to get our game to work. Worth every p...

Re: Bowen out rumour

In what way is the “structure” not built around football where is it’s non footballing element? Bowen was offered a position that would only have strengthened that structure but he declined.

I understand why some fans will not like it but Hobnob is like an echo chamber with a short circuit.

Re: Bowen out rumour

I wouldn't have sacked Bowen but his appointment has now been placed in it's true perspective and, whether or not you agree with the decision, I wouldn't call it shambolic, more an owner committed to taking the club where he wants it to be, having never shown the slightest sign of being unwilling to...

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

Couldn’t be more delighted that Ovi is finally ours! He’s not over rated he’s a special talent who needs to be played between the lines behind the striker where he’ll do the most damage. I still believe Swift will be snapped up once others accept we won’t be giving him away and that will help balanc...

Re: Osho - best crosser of the ball at the club. Discuss.

He'll get a few games in a league one club, who else will sign him? He's taken a huge risk in the current climate and is being poorly advised, probably got the same agent as Loader While I find it very disappointing we let his contract run down, I agree. With no gate money since March and even less...

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

Unfortunately this is Hobnob. Back in the real world your case makes perfect sense. If Brentford’s strategy doesn’t amount to sound financial stability in the crazy world of football finance, God knows what that says about all those fretting over points deductions as the bulldozers arrive at Griffin...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

With wages over 200% and up against a wall on FFP, there was only one way to do this and that was get rid then rebuild which is, more or less, where we find ourselves within a week of season’s end. This was desperately needed if we ever want to get back to the financial stability of those far off da...

Simmops Good referee. The best a man can get.


:D

Not sure everyone agrees though - a Leeds article on the ref:

I'd say West Brom are the best team and would agree Bamford is nothing special.

Ben Watson says “At the end, it was nice to get the goal but then again I don’t think it was a corner and the ball went out, and there was probably a handball” So just 3 reasons in the scorers view as to why the goal should not have been given and all 3 were missed by the day’s officials.

They were good first half and then we were good for most of the second and it had been a good game. Then I blame the ref for letting the match fizzle out. The refereeing was as bad as I can remember. Maybe the ball hadn't gone out before the goal, but the officials had already got two such decision...
