Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (a) sponsored by Dylan Kerr

Thats called the sea, that isn't a river. Please do some research on it and come back to me. :| I'm going to suggest that the water table of both grounds is on the precarious side, especially if the ground under Bloomfield Road is made up of similar material as the beach, which is just down the roa...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (a) sponsored by Dylan Kerr

Yeah but I kinda get that with where Forest's stadium is situated. I must've imagined the massive body of water half a mile from Blackpool's ground, last time I went then? :?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (a) sponsored by Dylan Kerr

I'd hope Blackpool's pitch is slightly better than a team in the North West Counties Football League but it isn't that encouraging I grant you. Didn't the Forest away game get called off when a non-league game down the road was played? Yeah but I kinda get that with where Forest's stadium is situat...

Re: Football stats

Love StatsGuru!

Although I fear that there has always been more of an emphasis on stats in cricket, so there might not be the same for football.

Re: Football stats

Bit of a numbers dork and I like my stats - mostly player histories, transfer fees, unbeaten runs, that sort of thing. What sites, if any, do you guys use for this kind of thing? Can't really find a one stop shop for everything, although Transfermarkt comes close. What triggered the question was Ti...

Re: Weekend Football

He acted like a bellend, not a football supporter. He is a professional footballer, probably on around 40k a week and with that comes responsibility. By all means go to games, be a supporter but in the back of your mind he should have known he would be picked up on TV and he has to set an example. ...

Re: Weekend Football

I think we can and should expect our professional footballers not to make w@nker gestures at other fans, whatever capacity in which they are at a game. p.s. if that counts as 'enjoying a game of football' then I really have left the game behind. Footballers are humans too. They're not robots. Many ...

I think the McBurnie thing is a sad representation of the society we now live in. Seriously, he’s just enjoying a game of football with some friends, why does there have to be a big deal about everything I think we can and should expect our professional footballers not to make w@nker gestures at ot...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (a) sponsored by Eamon Dunphy

This is the sort of away game that could define our season from here on in - a win and we are really in the play-off shake up, draw not too bad but a defeat could see the gap open up again. If we don't win either of the next 2 games then I think our season just motors along to its mid-table conclus...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (a) sponsored by Eamon Dunphy

another horribly tough away game Be very happy with a point - though then doesn't get any easy with Forest away the game after. Very tough little run of games this Indeed it is. The two surprise away wins at Preston and Fulham have eased the pressure somewhat, as we don't really need to worry too m...

Re: January Transfer Window

Just a thought, Obita started out as a wide midfielder and has a decent cross and shot on him, so how about a situation where both he and Blackett sign new contracts, Obita gets shifted back into midfield and Blackett as first choice LB with Richards as back up? Boye then goes back to Torino and we...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (a) sponsored by Eamon Dunphy

First away game for me since Feb 2017, looking forward to this one. Think it will be a tough one and I'd take a point, quite happily. Don't think there will be much of a changed side from the Forest game, maybe Puscas coming in for Baldock, but that would be about it for me. Didn't realise that Brad...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51090816 Interesting one from the Copa del Rey final. Not sure how I feel about it, if it was a Reading player - you probably say its great and if it happened against you - you would probably be pretty aggrieved.

Re: Matt Ridenton

Can someone remind me of the circumstances around Bobby Convey's transfer? Was he a nobody and Coppell unearned him? Not really, was already established at DC United which, even back then, was probably better than Australian A-League, he had also already made his debut for USA. Wikipedia also menti...
