Re: The generic transfer thread

Also, before the January window, there were two English* players in the Italian league. Smalling is one, without looking, try to name the other. * as in capped at some age level.

Re: 2019/2020 FA Cup

For me, the only reason why you would want Championship clubs to do well is; a) it is more fixtures for them in the season, which would help Reading in the league games or b) they knock out Premier League teams, thus allowing an 'easier' route for Reading or an unfancied team. This. I just like an ...

Barry Hunter is not the guy running the models that identify players


I can absolutely believe that. It was like talking to a stoned Paddy McGuiness.

Re: The generic transfer thread

Did he move recently?

Turns out he did. Cheers for the note - guess he's not on the list I had because he's not yet played.

There's one other.

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

On the French Cup La Magie de la Coupe is thriving in France. While the big European leagues demand more and more of our attention, the simple pleasure of a humble domestic cup is becoming more marginalised. This weekend, however, the biggest and arguably greatest cup competition in world football –...

Matchday Review Part 1: The Day An early start. 10 am at the end of London Bridge. The Den is little under an hours walk away. But first, a bacon butty at Maria's Cafe, Borough Market. Bubble and squeak doing a roaring trade, so a mental note made. Brewery #1: Southwark Brewery https://whatpub.com/...

Re: BFTG Millwall Away

Matchday Review Part 1: The Game You can get a long way in the Championship with a solid 4-4-2, high work rate and a committed xi. I don't think we were that awful, just outfight, outworked and lacking in an extra gear when it mattered. Just as a case in point, I couldn't parse our formation. It loo...

Re: Champions League/Europa League 2019/20

Not sure where the interest would be in a British Cup to be honest. Would you be that interested if we get to the first "national" round and get drawn at home to Inverness, Linfield or Barry Town? Only interesting tie would be home or away (pref away) to either of Celtic or Rangers - and ...

Re: Champions League/Europa League 2019/20

There were a couple of (English) National League sides, along with some Irish lads, in the Scottish Wafer Biscuit Cup this year. I don't know how long that's been going on. Possibly some Welsh sides in there too. As far as I can tell, it was mildly diverting for those involved. Anyway, time to scra...

Re: BFTG blackpool

I did indeed mean that. Apologies, I’m even less articulate on a hangover. Do a Rightmove search of houses for sale in Blackpool. Stick in a minimum of 6 bedrooms. It's an eye opener. Anyone fancy a 10 bedroom house for £135,000? Fantastic for student accommodation. Shame the nearest university is ...

Jagermesiter1871 Have you pissed in your sink yet? It's all anyone really wants to know.


For £15 I assumed it came pre-pissed.

The 4 am tramp fight outside was a perfect alarm call.

Re: BFTG blackpool

I know not a huge ammount of people went but seriously? Nobody has any scores or notes? I really want to know how McIntyre, Richards, Olise and Loader got on. Did McIntyre look fit? Did Richards learn from the last game and deal with the physical threat better? Was Olise as silky and mature as he l...
