Re: Referees

Firstly :arrow: WWFS I can’t stand Liverpool FC ;probably because I grew up with them winning the League nearly every year.However,how can that be a penalty for Everton’s second goal ? TAA is just lying on the ground,when Calvert Lewin just goes over him. You’re describing a foul. There is no need f...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wycombe Wanderers (a)

I’d like to see two up front for this one and bring in Puscas and drop Semedo. Also Holmes in for Yids. Echo my thoughts slightly although would go with the following: Rafael Yiadom Moore Morrison McIntyre Richards Laurent Rinomhota Olise Baldock Joao Southwood Esteves Holmes Gibson Tetek Ejaria Se...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Middlesbrough (h)

Yawn Solid argument m9! Argument already made mate They were good chances which should have at least resulted in shots on target. We fluffed our lines End of . You’re being unrealistic. A chance like Rino’s - about 20 yards out, slightly wide of goal - is unlikely to result in a shot on target and ...

Re: 90s Man U vs 20's Royals.

The thing to keep in mind is that all the players are different ages. Off the top of my head, Rino is a year older than Richards (and Southwood), who is a year older than McIntyre, who is a year older than Holmes, who is two years older than Olise. If the theory is that we should be producing one p...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Middlesbrough (h)

Full credit to Boro, they won the midfield battle, took their chances, and were excellent at the back. Also didn’t resemble a typical Warnock side.

We need more from our forwards, particularly the key men of Joao, Ejaria, and Olise. Echoing the comments about Esteves and Aluko.

Re: CONFIMRED: Lucas Joao

Fantastic signing. If he stays fit can see him being one of the best strikers we've had in years. Will be one of the top players in the Championship by next season. 8) That post must be hidden m8! Can't see it myself. Take nothing away from Pepe though, he was bang on the money, that prediction cou...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (a)

For me:

1) Semedo in midfield, Aluko behind striker
2) Holmes in midfield
3) as 1 but with Olise and Aluko switched
4) Tetek
5) McIntyre in midfield

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (h)

Puskas is rubbish and hold up;he is at his best exploiting space behind the CB s.Then he is very good. Disagree. He’s too slow to threaten many players in behind (although obviously there have been exceptions). Hold up play is a major part of his game, and he’s reasonably good at it, particularly i...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (a)

Aluko - 0.5 tackles and 0.5 interceptions per 90. Semedo - 1.5 tackles and 0.8 interceptions per 90 That said, I do agree with CR here. I think Aluko has looked the better player this season, at least for an attacking midfielder. IMO Aluko should be fifth choice and Semedo sixth rather than the othe...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (h)

Scored 14 in a season when the team was very average. Imagine he’d score more in a functional set up like this season Yeah if anything Puscas’s stock seems to have fallen while he’s been out of the side. He’s a great second choice. If we’d had him up front ahead of Baldock when Joao was out we’d ha...

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

Given that Bayern announced the signing of Dayot Upamecano yesterday I think it is safe to say that Richards hasn’t agreed to join them yet. Why would the two be mutually exclusive? Not that they would be "mutually exclusive" - but if Bayern announce Upamecano, it's safe to assume they wo...

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

All credit to Richards if he has signed for Bayern, who can blame him for signing for one of the biggest clubs in the world. Really hope he gets a good crack at it over there and isn't just a fringe player but either way it shines a great light on our academy and we should be proud of it. Given tha...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (h)

I think Puscas is one of those that gets better and better (in people's minds) the longer they are out injured. . Solid hard working champ striker, 14 goals last season, capable of brilliance on his day Not going to suddenly score 15 in the rest of the season but a very useful Option to have knocki...

Just remove the social media anonymity.

Re: Adam Federici - Still going strong

Millsy Sorry Pearce was overrated, slow and sh*t.

Feds was ok, not much more.

And yet with those two playing every week we got promoted with a low-scoring side.

Re: Adam Federici - Still going strong

I think people have a tendency with Feds to judge him on the small number of mistakes rather than the many many matches where he didn’t make a mistake. He played an absolutely huge role in McDermott’s promotion for example. Kept 20 clean sheets that season, the most in the league - more than Kasper ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h)

Brentford fans laughing at Karbota on their messageboard. What they don’t realise is that we laugh at him too. I’m guessing Brentford must have several black and/or foreign defenders? On that note it’s actually a little bit weird how British our team is. We usually pick eight or nine players who ar...
