Re: MATCHWATCH : Queens Park Rangers (a) sponsored by an Ingimarsson header

Impressed all around. I loved the harrying and pressing - never really gave them much room. Far cry from the laid-back approach of giving the opponent their complete half of the pitch. Liked the idea of trying to build-out from the back, but not force it. McCleary must be on PEDs because he was quic...

Re: GOMES OUT!

Just read Gomes parting message. Argue all you like regarding manager credentials and ability, but he oozes class. All the BS he had to deal with regarding the dead-weight, the morale, and the embargo, etc. and he gets 10 months. I remember him saying one of the first things he did was to ban smart ...

Re: BFT ???????????????????????????????????????????

We have employed a third successive manager who wants us to play out from the back when we don’t have the personnel to do it. Rafael is a poor distributor of the ball. None of our defenders last night are good passers of the ball. They are so slow at moving the ball forward. The problem is then com...

Re: BFT ???????????????????????????????????????????

FiNeRaIn Very good second half performance, 1-1 with 10 men, defense solid. Never looked like losing. Roll on Bristol city!!


This. Now we only need to petition the league to allocate points based upon halves and not the entire match. :)

Re: BFTG Swansea Away

First 25min or so we were just horrible. The remainder we were average to good but still could not make that incisive move to get a goal until the dying stages. I think Barrett should start as he provided the energy and spark we needed and has a nice final ball unlike Boyet. Overall I can enjoy my p...

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

So when do we start blaming the management rather than the players? Would suggest we have players with the technical ability to at least be comfortable in this division but after an initial burst why are they now such an utter shambles on the pitch? The management does look at fault. But it's still...

Re: Gomes, should he stay or should he go - poll

In. I think it's a combination of working-in new players and man management. Gomes has already shown he can man-manage. It sort of feels that the club are having a bit of HRK Syndrome - we did well against perceived strong sides (two sides in the PL last season and Brom) and not so well against perc...

Re: BFTG WBA

Before the game, I’d have taken a point. At half time I would have been disappointed with anything but three points. At full time I was happy with a point. I know we scored first and it might feel like two points dropped, but I had my heart in my throat more times when they were threatening than vic...

Re: Will we get found out again?

yeah Nova is surely on his way JS wasn't completely right thankfully as he did play for us vs Sheff Wed But he is probably well down the list, which is likely Puscas > Joao > Meite > Boye > Loader > Baldock > Nova at the moment As a Yank, I wanted to see Nova break into the 1st team. But, as a Roya...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Gomes seems to be strong with man management and team morale and isn't afraid to make the hard decisions. Imagine if each one of these signings is as impactful as the 5 in January were.

Re: Rumour - Puscas

Not sure it deserves its own thread, JL reporting Wolves have made several bids for Loader in the past few days. Could be the major reason we're amping-up on the striker category.

Steady now, let's not get ahead of ourselves. I'll still be happy if we go into the last 5 games not seriously looking over our shoulders and sweating on other results. Let's try getting to 50 points first. I know, I know. I did bold and underline “if”. :) But if we’re really spending close to 10M ...
