Re: How impressed are you with BMcD's return to the club?

The last time he was our manager he made huge improvements in a short period of time. He took us from relegation candidates to play off finalists to Champions. Based on that kind of track record of improvement, I think we have a bright future with Brian in charge. You don't think he will make any i...

Re: How impressed are you with BMcD's return to the club?

LOL. Clearly you don't go to games very often. Brian is just limited. He plays a shit style of football, is one dimensional and has no plan B in games. His team selections are poor and so are his subtitutions. We have seen no improvement so far and I don't think that will change too much while he i...

Re: Strangely optimistic about next season.

McDermott is tactically stubborn and even when a formation hasn't worked for months he persists with it. McDermott is good at building teams with ethos when he has say over transfer policy, not something he has with the Thais. The Thais have shown their backing to be frugal at best, if last summer ...

Re: SkyBet odds for next season.

:lol: I'd have Reading as likely relegation candidates based on the last two seasons of total crap and the mess that still appears to be going on in the boardroom. Can't argue with this sentiment at the moment. Let's hope that we are all singing a different tune when the summer business has been do...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by does anyone care?

It'll be interesting to see the line up for this match. I think that the exuberance and confidence of a few youth players in the squad will be no bad thing. Looking forward to listening to the game, I think it might be an end of season cracker......

Re: BFTG Preston

Believe it or not they do focus groups on the match day experience - fans they talk to actually enjoy stuff like that. They have stats to back it up ( :!: ). I agree with you but if the whole stadium sings along to sweet caroline and respond to the PA guys rallying then why would the club change it...

Re: Bye Nicky

Y21 The idea of Nigel Howe as director of football makes me feel a little but sick.


Don't worry, his ineptitude will shine through and he'll be off soon as well I imagine. The end is nigh, we're all doomed etc......

Re: MATCHWATCH : Middlesbrough (a) sponsored by a Paul Holsgrove winner

Good job on surviving to HT at just one down. This statement just about sums up our season The fact we're only one down kinda vindicates McDermott's team selection IMO... Really....? Boro are very good and extremely difficult to score against. We could easily have found ourselves 2/3 down at this p...

We'll win this 2-1 8) Really? I must be following the wrong game....... Zero shots on target in 45 minutes doesn't make me too confident that we'll score two goals in the second half. Playing our most attacking player at right back isn't too bright either....... I look forward to being proven wrong...

Top Flight Stats suggest we're dominating. Is that right?

Re: Boro (A) Predictions

Cox will be captain after accepting a new £30k a week 3 year contract prior to kick off, with McDermott commenting that "it's important to keep players of Simons calibre at this club, his goal scoring record speaks for itself" ^^ Comedy genius ! ^^ Cheered me up before I go to the office :D
