Re: BFTG Brum

I'd like to see Ejaria look up more, as Swift is doing. His dribbles are so intricate that I think they tax his short-term memory to the point he ends up in a blind maze, so in the end it's pot luck whether he comes out with the ball or disappears up his own arse. I love watching him, though--prope...

Re: BFTG Brum

First half. Absolutely shocking. All of them, except Olise. Second half. Did what we had to do and looked quite bright on the counter, although we should have kept the ball better in the last 15 minutes rather than panic and hoof. Plus points: Swift second half, Olise, Rino and Richards, but really ...

Re: BFTG Barnsley

Definitely better than Wednesday and spot on to close them out for a win and no goals conceded.

Full credit to Puscas for a well taken goal .... *and* he managed to get off the ground for a couple of headers .... *and* his first touch wasn't nearly as bad as Meite's for a change.

Re: BFT well I don’t know what to call it without resorting to a lot of naughty words

I've had nearly 48 hours to calm down after the complete fustercluck of a 'performance' ... which was inevitable given the complete nonsense of the team selection. It's easy to write it off as a bad day at the office. A *bad* day at the office? That was bordering on administration. Right from the of...

Re: BFTG - Baggies

Oh the joy of watching a team defending from the front and hunting in packs. Shame it wasn't us Pele the standout again. That man can mount me any time he wants. Also thought Yaidom did ok coming back in, and Meite put in a good shift. Swift and Ejaria can sit on the bench for a bit. And take Pusca...

Re: Elm Park Years

RoyalBlue One season there was loads of Pompey fans in the block of seats nearest the Town End. As the teams came on, they all ran across the pitch to attack Reading fans in the South Bank.

Yup, like Ark, Forester, Spizz and, no doubt, a few others, I started watching (often with SWLR) in the Town End in '68. Fulham midweek in the league cup was a bit 'special' :shock: and obvs your Pompeys, Pox, Aldersh*t (who are still the one and only 'derby') and Brizzol Cities (which was probably ...

Walker - He was poor. God I hope Southwood is better. We need someone to fill the space between now and Coniah Boyce-Clarke leading us to the Prem. Howe - First half I thought he looked good, second not so much. Made an important challenge but looks better at going forward than defending. Miazga - ...

Re: BFTG QPR

Old man Adam was pure class for the first 45. Didn't need to run and his awareness of players was simply first class. Every Hollywood pass to feet except when Gunter thought it was coming too quickly, took a couple of steps back, and it pinged two yards off his first touch.... Moore was immense in t...

Re: FA Cup away day memories

Franchise FC Has anyone mentioned the 4-0 defeat at Swindon in the late 70'/early 80's ?

Cold, wet, lost, seriously concerned outside the ground afterwards.


Yup, that one certainly sticks in the memory ... and I sincerely wish it wouldn't.

Re: FA Cup away day memories

Victor Meldrew Was the replay on a weekday afternoon because of the electricity strikes?


Indeed, it was. Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon. I went to school along Tilehurst Road and instead of walking to Prospect Park for school footy, I sneaked into the Tilehurst End.

BFTG - Brentford

Well, that was a funny old game. First up, I think Brentford are probably the best passing side I've seen all season. Pinged the ball around very well - quick and sharp - and we matched them for the first half. Brentford used their very wide men, hugging the touchline, to give Yids and Omar a torrid...

Re: BFTT - QPR (A)

A well deserved point. Rino was immense breaking things up, getting his foot in and keeping the ball. Not pretty but very effective. Biggest plus of the night: Puscas and Baldock. At last we have a forward who knows where to make runs and can actually control the football. Full credit to Baldock. Hi...

I saw a comment either on this thread or another but can't find it - be arsed to look - that there was a bit of needle between Adam and Miazga after the goal, and Yids and Brazilian chappy step in to keep the garrulous jock away.... Plain to see on the vid.

Two awful missed headers from PNE in, err, the first 20 minutes nd that should have been game over. Morrison my MotM. Joao being out is a blessing. His touch is almost as bad as Meite's. At last Puscas was getting some sort of service and made some great runs. He will come good. Him and Baldock on T...
