Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

As much as I feel sorry for him and hoped he would get the opportunity he's been patiently waiting for, I'm glad he's going to be playing a decent level somewhere else. The poor lad has not been given a fair crack here. Assuming the talks go well I hope we have a sell on clause for his transfer. Wh...

Re: Michael Morrison

Totally throwing it out there having only ever started one game central defence, but is there not a huge difference playing in a pair compared to a threesome? Three defenders is a lovely situation to be playing in surely. Two, like most, and that's something entirely different surely. Just a guess ...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Bolton told they have until 5pm tomorrow to sort out the future ownership on the notice on their membership will also be served (giving them 14 days). FL not happy as they were told that the deal was essentially done prior to the Wycombe game hence being allowed to start the season - looks like Ken ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Plymouth Argyle (a) sponsored by Glen Little

Tough call - be good to keep momentum going but feel we need to rest players ahead of Charlton as this will be the 3rd realtively long distance away game in a week. I would like to think we have enough about our squad now to play a relative "B" side and get through this game even with Plym...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Huddersfield Town (a) sponsored by Steve Francis

The positive here is before the season started, and even 2 weeks ago we would have all seen this as a likely defeat with a draw being the most we could ask for. They do have top end Championship quality in there and will improve but now there is no reason why we can't go there and get a rare away wi...

Also a big fan of Olise and generally agree However he has plenty of time on his side and has signed a new 3 year deal - I’m more relaxed about playing him atm, though hopefully he’ll get a run out at Plymouth McIntyre also seems to have settled in very well and hopefully be fairly content to cover...

Re: Rival Watch

Not sure I follow - Brighton and Charlton are both Premier League/Championship clubs. Where does League One/Two come into it? That's the loophholy bit - it doesn't matter which team is cancelling his contract, and which team is rehiring him - the relevant transfer window in this case is the League ...

Re: BFTG WBA

An on negativity in general, I particularly like the assertion in the opening post that Gomes' substitutions caused our best player to give away a penalty. Simple really. Throughout the game we had a 5-3-2 and were pressing fairly high. The Rino for Puscas sub changed it to 5-4-1 Firstly, we had no...

Re: WBA being ‘unlucky’ with earlier penalty shouts. Sky commentator reckoned ref had a very good game and that had there been #VAR they would’ve told him he had got the earlier decisions re penalties correct. That's not quite accurate. The commentator was speaking specifically about an incident wh...

Parky finally has enough of the mess at Bolton and quits.

Given he was the only stable thing there, they are truly screwed.

Looks like Jordan Holsgrove likely to head to Spain for a year. Training with Atlético Baleares until Saturday ahead of a potential loan move.

Atlético Baleares play in Segunda Division B essentially the 3rd Division in Spain.

Re: Help-Re the Cardiff game.

I would very much appreciate if somebody who recorded Sunday's game or who has access to any definitive stats (not the BBC website as they are not always right) to confirm without doubt how many corners we had in the first half. IIRC the first one didn't happen until around the 35 th minute and the...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Never before in my lifetime can I remember a club being removed from a professional league. I remember teams like boston, Scarborough and rushden and diamonds but I'm sure they got relegated before to non-league.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (h) sponsored by Adam Federici

Rinohomota will still be vital to us this year. The Pele, Swift & Ejaria midfield worked well on Sunday but we have what we haven't had in midfield for a while - realistic options. We could relistically replace any of the 3 that started against Cardiff and not weaken the overall shape and feel o...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

The ref was pretty average to poor until about 60 odd mins when he picked up what Cardiff were up to and started pulling them up for their multiple fouls Joao did fall over too easily, but he was still being constantly kicked, pulled and wrestled before the ball came to him. You're not actually all...

Re: VAR

Another joy-sapping moment from VAR yesterday. I know fans of VAR will say it's the correct decision by the letter of the (revised) law, but that change to the interpretation has only been brought in because of the use of VAR, and, IMO, it's totally against the spirit of the game. Such moments are ...
