Re: Bristol City fan with local info Goodfriday

And as mentioned in another thread, when it comes to pubs my vote goes to the Novia Scotia. A proper old fashioned pub, with proper beer and cider, proper grub (very generous portions and cheap prices), friendly staff and locals and much cheaper than the flashier Pump House the other side of the Ba...

Re: Reading FC Womens World

Pretty much what we have come to accept over the years Embarrassing Any idea of the crowd size. Two stands looked quite well populated. Surprised that Man City v Chelsea barely made 1700 soectators 2334 Looking at the stand capacities and how full they were, together with a lot of people standing i...

Re: That Robin Friday goal, now visible on video (sort of)

I wasn't born when he scored "that goal". But from the various ways i've seen it described, it sounds a lot like a goal that was scored by Exeter this weekend, which can be seen in the following tweet: https://twitter.com/QuestTV/status/1117141653893128194 For those of you who were there,...

Re: Bristol City fan with local info Goodfriday

Pretty sure I've walked from Temple Meads and taken in a pub en route If you've walked from Temple Meads - and it's easily doable if you are reasonably fit - you could have taken in plenty of good pubs en route. Risk would be that you would probably end up seeing 44 players on the pitch for most of...

Re: BFTG - Brentford

Disappointing that what should have been a pretty positive thread on the Brentford game has descended into another war of words over Gunter. There is so much criticism over his apparent failure to close players down and allow crosses to come in. I would suggest that over the past couple of seasons a...

Re: BFTG - Brentford

Maupay was lucky to be on the pitch after not getting booked for a deliberate handball and a high tackle. Agreed. The handball was a cynical attempt to cheat and score a goal so very definitely should have been a yellow. Plus he twice got involved in nasty 'afters' including grabbing Yiadom by the ...

Re: BFTG - The miracle of Carrow Road.

Contrary to the thoughts of some, I thought our fantastic manager got tactics and subs pretty much spot on. I think that if we had tried to defend our lead by attacking and taking the game to Norwich they would have exploited the spaces that created and ripped us apart, resulting in a heavy defeat. ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Norwich City (a) sponsored by James Harper

So our time wasting worked. because Norwich were winning at the end of normal time you have to wonder why the ref added that much? added time is added time no matter who is winning. The ref should stop his watch when there is a delay. Slightly bizarre comment that Anyway, they wasted a couple of mi...

Re: BFTG - PNE

I think there was just one more which was the cross Ejaria walked over. Had he made contact with it few keepers could have saved it. Yes, you're right Seth, I forgot that one. Not sure if Eja was surprised and saw it late, got his long legs stuck under him or what, but the goal was gaping. Plus whe...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (h) sponsored by the only way is up

Was Meite back in Bristol/Millwall form Thought he was excellent. They really couldn’t cope with him Rino and Baker also both excellent as mentioned. Love Miazga as well - been our most impt loanee Swift’s pass for the first goal was obscenely good. Sat directly behind it, was absolutely perfect Re...

Re: BFTG - PNE

I haven't been Meite's biggest fan in the past but he was absolutely immense today. Not only did he get the important first goal and help set up the second but he worked tirelessly in attack and defence throughout the game. He caused their defenders all sorts of problems and I lost count of the numb...

Re: Rival Watch

This points deduction does not help us one bit . Rather play Birmingham at home last game of season where they are on their holidays versus being in a match where both teams livelihoods depend on it. And we all know how that will end. Apart from the fact they now won't be on the beach when they pla...

As if. I bet you did a Henman fist pump when you heard the news. No not at all. Just because he is an abysmal Reading reporter it doesn't mean he wasn't a decent reporter in general. He did a hell of a lot to promote local sports clubs and amatuer football in his time. Doesn't that suggest that the...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Leeds United (h) sponsored by Brian McDermott

Had Oliveira not been crocked, that score could have been a lot closer. Wasted several good chances with poor finishing and also created numerous good opportunities/openings only for a final ball to screw them up. Baldock would also have helped in that respect. Disappointed by the result but thought...

Was a struggle that 2 brilliant finishes and it’s game over. We looked like a side missing the players we were. Blunt up front, the U23s look like boys and too many errors at the back.

Leeds have been good, but getting a bit bored of the commentators gushing over every little thing they do, and the disappointment in their voices when something doesn't come off. They excelled themselves when they started moaning about the low attendance. The effing arrogance of Sky, not acknowledg...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Leeds United (h) sponsored by Brian McDermott

We've actually created some good opportunities but wasted them. We are still paying the price for Clement not signing the right strikers at the start of the season and seemingly thinking that Meite would consistently score. The other thing that is killing us is all the injuries. Can any other club i...

Re: Gomez tactics may still take us down

Wrong way around. And if you can't take the risk of trying to play football in the centre of the pitch when your team are set up properly and not out of position then you are unlikely to create much going forwards. I was working backwards from now and therefore the first goal I came to was the thro...
