Re: BFTG Birmingham

Is it just me raising a wry smile at the fact everyone's fawning over O'Shea after most completely wrote him off before a ball was kicked? I will reserve judgement on O'Shea until (let's hope it is not necessary) he plays in a proper competitive match. Last night Birmingham fielded just ONE player ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (h) sponsored by dull cup draws r us

Presumably be some changes for this one. I'd quite like to see some starts for at least some of Moore, McNulty, Clement, Rinomhota, Walker, Richards and Bacuna... not sure I can realistically see that many changes though. I'm assuming that the likes of Aluko, Popa and Harriott who didn't make the s...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

still managed to concede 3 goals to average teams. Obvious statement but we'd have 4 points if we hadn't conceded a goal this season But how many of them are down to an individual error of one of the CB's? None from what I can tell. Liam Moore playing or not playing hasn't had any impact so far for...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

I'd suspect he did do some light training, but isn't match sharp and integrated for tactics in time for Forest, plus it sends the message that he doesn't just waltz straight back in. Blimey Ian when did football stop being the simple game that it is? "Integrated for tactics"? He is a cent...

Re: BFTG - Forest away

The problem with people like you and Ian is that you put words into other people's posts that aren't there. So when you see someone make the perfectly reasonable statement that these strikers are not consistent goalscorers you see, "these strikers aren't consistent goalscorers. Therefore they'...

It's really not worth the effort with you two. Good. BTW Ian I don't think you even know when you are being objectionable. Can't you ever post in a considered and occasionally friendly way? You never know, you might actually enjoy it and find that people are much more inclined to have a civil debat...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

Probably. "Players lose you games, not tactics. There's so much crap talked about tactics by people who barely know how to win at dominoes” Clough's idea of pre match preparation was taking his players to the red light district the night before European semi finals. He didn't have a bad career...

Re: Summer Transfers

May well be Maddison who was not in Posh’s squad today. Can imagine trying to sort a loan deal with McAnthony and Fry would be like pulling teeth one by one with no anaesthetic...good luck Gourlay and Tevreden on that one..your negotiating skills will be put to the ultimate test if this is the plan...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

You'd think watching football for half a century or more might give you a hint that defence is a bit more complex and involved than a bunch of individuals trying to make tackles and blocks. Or do you think training just involves some exercise, and a fun XI a side kick-about? It was either the late ...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

Blimey Ian when did football stop being the simple game that it is? "Integrated for tactics"? He is a centre-back who played under this manager for the last 10 (?) games last season and his job is to stop the opposition strikers from scoring. Not sure that there is much in terms of tactic...

Re: Forest (A) match thread

Along with Barrow ,Moore is one of our two best players IMHO and if he is good enough to be considered worth £10 million (or £4 million) or whatever amount we turned down for him he has to play now that he is fully committed to the club :?: This looks a hotch potch of a side , so much so that we hav...

Re: Summer Transfers

Not even Spaculation. just good players that I hope we would be looking at. Burnley have a glut of strikers/ attack minded players, whichever one comes up on loan we should be looking at. (Walters, Barnes, Wells) Also I am surprised no one has gone for Akins of Burton yet he was there best player b...

Re: Barrow to Leicester

If I had to have a bet on it I'd say Barrow's agent has just leaked things to a publication in order to generate interest in his player before the transfer window closes. Wouldn't have thought there is any solid interest. Barrow is decent but silly money like £10m would be impossible to turn down. ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (h) sponsored by a new hope

Agree with most of the comments and a draw would have been about right on the balance of play;we were better in the first half and they were better in the second. Lampard hasn't really addressed Derby's biggest problem-central defence. Just as Gunter has been poor for us yet always selected, the sam...

Chris Gunter will miss the first 3-6 weeks of the season due to a thigh injury. More accurate than you could ever realise, Paul: "Gunter has a thigh injury, he got the injury trying to block a cross. It is very unlike him. It is going to be 3 to 6 weeks." It's unlike Gunter to try and blo...

Brentford. Literally the first club I looked up. All the forwards who's height I could find. Neal Maupay 5ft7 Ollie Watkins 5ft 11 Justin Shaibu 5ft 11 Sergio Canos 5ft9 Said Benrahma 5ft8 Is this our worst thread of the season?
