Re: Champions League/Europa League 2019/20

Atletico literally give no shits about nonsense like expected goals. Brilliant. yeah they do! You just don't understand it! was going to say, athletico strike me as one of the more efficient teams out there. Didn't panic when 1 down. Stuck to the plan. Helped by an immense performance by the keeper...

Off The Pitch post Later start than usual, as I was having lunch with my Dad (buffalo & rye, smokehouse) but The Wellington was well-chosen starting point. Black Country Ales' major Brum centre pub, with at least 17 lines on the go (there's more upstairs, but iirc they're the local ciders). Pre...

Re: BFTG Brum

Football post: Terrible first half, solid second with three well taken goals. Olise was only light after 45 minutes. Everyone better in second half, but... Right now, Ejaria slows things down Puscas works his socks off but we're not playing to his strengths in any way Decent use of subs Birmingham ...

Re: Ups & Downs 19/20

Please God, not Barrow. It's 2hrs from anywhere. It's like stepping onto the set of Deliverance. It is one of the very few Football League or National League sides I couldn't tell you where they were on a map. Not a clue. It's on the Furness penninsula that juts out on the opposite side of Morecamb...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (h) sponsored by the magic of the cup

So that Billy Sharp is quite the prick eh? Can we please stop discussing Reading FC or Sheffield Utd on this thread. Thank you.

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

Impressive in terms of effort and workmates even if quality was lacking at times. Sheffield United did have long spells of well-worked keepball whereas our counter -attacks found themselves broken by poor decisions or touches. Three things: *ejaria very skillful but also slow, very different to the ...

Re: Birmingham (A) 7th March

What’s the public transport options between NS and St Andrews? surprisingly poor, to my knowledge. there is a semi-parliamentary train that runs to Bordesley only on matchdays, last train leaving Moor Street to arrive at about half two. There are buses, but I don't really go to that part of town ou...

Re: CheLOLsea

There's always been this paradox with Chelsea, this whole fashionable Kings Rd thing thing coupled with the rampant nastiness at the heart of the club and it's fans. The only club in England to install electric fences to keep their own fans in check . And then you throw Mourinho into the mix. The t...

yeah, wasn't trying to argue, per se, was just trying to get to the root data and have a play & have a think. Certainly agree with the second post.

Re: Football stats

From Despair To Where? Jimmy Greaves is often the answer to a lot of these "youngest player" questions. He would have been 21 or 22 when he hit 200 appearances in England and Italy. He was 20 when he scored his 100th league goal.


on that note, the Greaves documentary on BT sport is well worth the time.
