Re: Back from I Follow Luton

Think we need to sign a CB regardless, but get Moore off the books and a decent fee for him £3m+ and that would probably fund two in fee and wages. Seems reasonable. I don't know why but CB seems to me the one position that while you can have super players like Sonko, the threshold seems a lot lowe...

Snowflake Royal Yes, obviously that's what I meant. I was tired.


We need to give you a free transfer to the Swindon Town football messageboard.

Good lord, not even OMA deserves that.


A thaw in your relationship?

Re: Back from I Follow Luton

Fox Talbot Has anyone mentioned the symmetry of these results 50 years apart?

March 1970 - Luton 5 Reading 0
July 2020 - Luton 0 Reading 5

I've waited a bloody long time for that. Eat my shorts, Macdonald - you only got three goals.


It's a bit like groundhog day.

Re: Back from I Follow Luton

Great to see Ejaria's trickery surrounded by players lead to a goal. Bound to happen. Great to see Blackett I thought he'd gone. Great to see Osho, he really grew in confidence and was class. Great to see Puscas score, you could see what it meant for him. Great to see Pele, really a player I'd like ...

Re: BFIFollow Brentford

Massive fan of Ejaria here. But from what I've read the criticism is fair and level headed. No-one is knocking him saying he's rubbish, just that he needs to brush up in some areas to become as good as we know he can be. He's still young of course and will mature nicely. I put a lot of it down to ha...

Re: Swift to... Southampton

As one of our better players and a player who has been here a while I expect slightly more from him. I want to see him take games by the scruff of the neck and get his teammates going, he just seems to go missing when the chips are down. Interesting point I've always wondered about this. If players...

Re: Swift to... Southampton

There are several players out there who are younger, fitter and cheaper than John Swift. Swift is a show pony who puts in minimal effort season in and season out. I can't agree with that at all. Swift has been very good this season and has shown more effort than most. He is getting more stuck in to...

Re: Swift to... Southampton

AS far as I'm concerned screw it, sell everyone and build from scratch with academy players. If covid has hit us hard and our financial position is dodgy we're not going to be able to do much and might just have to ride out the storm until things settle. Either that or we don't need to lose anyone i...

Re: Wigan in Administration

Not that I have any love for Wigan, but it is never nice to see a fellow footy club and their fans suffer (except if it's Wet Sham). My thoughts are with Wigan and their fans.

Re: BFIFollow Brentford

Well if we didn't get a known name in back when we were happy to splash the cash I don't see us risking millions on a big name after Bowen. Especially as what big name would they even be able to attract to a club in financial difficulty like us? If Bowen goes I can see O'Shea getting the job, or one...

Re: BFIFollow Brentford

I think Dellor has been allowed by his bosses and his own ego to forget what his job is, he is a commentator and no more than that. He is there to tell the listener what is happening on the pitch and not to offer his opinions. Mick and Ady are there to provide us with their opinions as former Readi...

Re: BFIFollow Brentford

Sorry, one other talking point for me and it is regarding Tim and Micks favouritism. It was very obvious in the first half and so frustrating to listen to. Whenever one of their preferred players does something wrong it is "thats not like them" or "shame that didn't come off" an...

Re: BFIFollow Brentford

Players didn't care for the game, so I won't care to rate them. Talking points for me: Adam - a couple of good balls that did help us, but then everything went backwards or kicked into touch. As awful as his first few games and certainly not the saviour we needed when chasing the game. Two-nil footb...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h) sponsored by end of season apathy

If you're not concerned with the apparant lack of motivational skills Bowen has then you're deluded. Had we had won these first 3 after lockdown all the Bowen lovers would be talking about a play off challenge and not treating them as "nothing games". They are nothing games in hindsight b...

We were shit.

Re: Striker PRIORITY

I'm not sure anymore. We were crying out for strikers and we splashed the cash on Puscas, who let's be honest is not a donkey. Yes he misses the occasional chance but he's young and has shown plenty of promise. We also splashed out on Joao who has been excellent, but just unlucky with injury. On top...

Re: BFI Player

Ejaria's the guy in FM who "likes to beat players repeatedly". There's lots of entertainment and lots of nearly, but nearly ain't good enough. That attribute almost got us goals on two occasions as he embarrassed the defender by just walking past him at the byline. It's exhilarating to wa...

Re: BFI Player

It's funny I thought we were by far the better team pressing really effectively until they scored then we just went crap apart from the beginning of the second half so it all hinged on the first goal for me. And Puscas' miss. Their first goal WHY did we not close him down? It seems it was just a tot...
