Re: Rival Watch

genome Coventry are a really good side when they want to be.

Surely Mark Robbins has to have done one of the best managerial jobs in the country? L2 to Championship, limited funds and not even a home ground to play in.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Middlesbrough (h)

If Laurent was rested last night, do you think it will be Rinomhota on Saturday? They've both played pretty much every minute all season, so looking after them a bit more seems sensible.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (a)

I will no doubt incur fury for saying this, but Morro's goal was not a wonder goal. He does really well to push forward, see a gap, pass to Joao and continue his run. However, once he gets it back, it's a lucky ricochet and a deflected finish. I'd say a good goal for a CB overall, but Morrodonna he ...

Re: Rival Watch

Nobody in the play-off chasing pack looks like a serious contender. 11 point gap between us and 7th as it stands, and none of them look good enough to close it.

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

I think the top 6 are better this year than they have been for a while. On paper at least. There is an awful lot of bang average teams from Stoke all the way down to the likes of Coventry, who all seem pretty similar quality wise. Only wycombe really not up to it Well off premiership quality though...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h)

The lack of depth is so frustrating and it could be the difference between us going up or not. Just think, missed penalties and awful injuries......we really could be where Brentford are now. The bad luck is hard to take, but as you say we could have eased it all with a couple of signings. With Bal...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h)

I still think squad depth is a very tough thing to balance. We basically have the same players as we had last season but they’re performing much better...no doubt part of that is due to it being much smaller & close knit, with consistency in team selection. Yes we need 1-2 more, or we need to r...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h)

Was it earlier in the season that Boro effectively got a free pass by playing Rotherham reserves because of Covid? Why did Brentford get to postpone? I'm particularly bitter because Dasilva was suspended for the original fixture. Missing Swift and Meite today was massive. They had quality on the ben...

Re: Rival Watch

Hourihane is an annoyingly good signing. Yep Norwich have been pretty poor from what I’ve seen. Be out of the top 2 of Brentford and Swansea win their games in hand Narch have been hauled back in. Two points from their last three games. Things can change quickly as we found out earlier in the seaso...

Re: Rival Watch

Yep. Re-emphasise my point about how big the Stoke game is. Others said it wasn’t a must-win but if we want to be a top 6 team and pushing for top 2 we need to 3pts tomorrow Similar to the Preston game. Draw is a solid point for playoff chasers, but not genuine auto promotion candidates. Agree with...

Re: Rival Watch

The inertia and stagnation at Bournemouth has set in over a couple of years. Do not expect a new manager to turn it around overnight. If we're looking seriously at automatic promotion, Bournemouth are not a genuine rival.

Re: Rival Watch

Neither Watford or Swansea score enough goals. No reason why we can’t finish above both of them. Norwich and Brentford are another matter. surprising with Watford having Sarr, Deeney and Gray - you'd expect scoring to be the least of their worries. They do seem to set up very conservatively - some ...

Re: Rival Watch

With Shane Long on loan at Bournemouth, is our latest play-off heartbreak him scoring the winner at Wembley? Would be in keeping with previous experience.

Re: January window

How much do you think Bournemouth are paying for Long? Too much for our FFP situation? He'd have been great backup for Joao and presumably would have jumped at the chance to come back if we were interested.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bournemouth (h)

Michael Morrison and Josh Laurent for a combined fee of zero was a phenomenal piece of scouting. Was unsure about Morrison initially yet here he is, in the form of his life. Laurent as well. The teams confidence can be a bit fragile at times especially looking at when we hit a bad run of form and g...

Re: The Next 6 Games

Does suggest we should have a run of decent fixtures at the back end of the season, so just need to stay in the mix over the next few games Sadly not - Watford, Norwich & Swansea are 3 of last 4 or 5 I believe We can definitely beat Swansea at home with a fit side. Draw at Watford, lose to Norw...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bournemouth (h)

Apparently Bournemouth's starting XI last night was worth £121m Ours was £8m :lol: Worth is doing a lot of heavy lifting in that sentence. It says ‘was’ rather than ‘is’ ! I read that if bmouth don’t go up this year they are financially stuffed. Of course us getting promotion would iron out one or ...
