Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a)

Agree with most comments. Bottom line is that Birmingham wanted that more which is the big disappointment. It must be obvious by now to anyone who watches championship football that you have to match opponents for desire and grit. If you don’t then no matter how many players of skill you have, you ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a)

Worse than Wycombe that was for me - slow, pedestrian football around the back, not getting anywhere with it, before an aimless hoof and pretty much repeat Key partnerships around the pitch didn’t work - the CB’s, particularly Moore were bullied throughout and Joao and Meite had little cohesion toge...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a)

We were - interesting* how arguably some of our worst performances at home this year coincided with fans being in the ground. Brum played like a team chasing promotion that day - in the first half at least not one who are probably favourites for the drop as of today. Drew parallels from last season...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a)

I think the lack of crowds takes away a massive amount of the feel good factor around a new manager bounce. In a parallel universe Bowyer’s appointment would have meant an extra 4-5,000 on the gate at St Andrews and a 20k plus midweek noisy St Andrews under the lights, which can be an intimidating ...

Re: Rival Watch

So Cardiff's draw, means a win tomorrow realistically sees the race for the play-offs become any 2 from us, Barnsley and Bournemouth? Boro and Cardiff would be too far back and inconsistent. Cardiff's form has crumbled since the win at Bournemouth and giving Mccarthy a new deal. Wouldn’t rule anyon...

Re: Rival Watch

genome I hope Brentford go up automatically... really wouldn't wanna play them in the playoffs.


They have a consistent record of losing the crunch games when it really matters, can’t seem to deal with pressure although knowing our record in the playoffs, that can always change

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a)

Brum fans all optimistic about tonight and the season now that Bowyer is in. Need to stamp that out early tonight. Karanka didnt sound like he was too popular there. Not sure Bowyer coming in at a days notice will change a great deal to be honest, but it might give them a bit of a mental boost Kara...

BraisingsteakRoyal Not sure why i looked it up - but Jaap Stam is having a torrid time at FC Cinncinati:

He may as well retire.

Re: World Cup 2022 qualifying begins

Just realised we are playing 3 (THREE) world cup qualifiers in 7 days, from 25th March. San Marino (h), Albania (a), Poland (h). Will surely be pretty much two separate teams from Southgate, not least given the calibre of the first two opponents. IMO will be a good chance to experiment with players...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a)

McIntyre's been good. But I think we've been more hesitant and limited in bringing the ball out from defence into midfield with him there. Semedo gets a bad rap from you lot. He's good. Just not Laurent / Rinomhota good. Though more versatile than Rino. Not sure what to make of Semedo. Sometimes he...

Re: Rival Watch

Looking like we will be facing Lee Bowyer's Birmingham City on Wednesday. Some details over the sacking which suggests that (A) - the club is a shambles (which I guess has been apparent some time) and (B) - the players are willing to throw their manager under the bus, never a good sign https://mobi...

Re: Weekend Football

So if the linesman flags immediately, instead of this stupid fcuking delay until the 'phase' of play is over, Rui Patricio doesn't end up in what looks like a pretty desperate situation after colliding with Coady/Salah. Ffs. Really was only a matter of time before this happened. Not often it takes ...

Hendo Wenger has never been sacked, has he?


Thought of him but looked it up, was sacked from Monaco

Also there’s the rumour he was “sacked” from Arsenal but they didn’t want to convey it that way after his service at the club

Re: SpuROFLs

(warning, recurrent post) Spurs are my favourite big six (?) club because they never win anything. They are always entertaining, score loads of goals, get to the verge of winning something, then fck it up. They have had some fantastic players in the past five years, but that period is now passing a...

No not this. It worked. They won the play offs. Didn’t work well for us against Swansea back in 2011 where we were comprehensively outplayed for the majority of the game! We rested several first team players for the end of that season I don’t think there’s much of a correlation at all tbf I didn’t ...
