Re: Season 20/21

Doubt they will be allowed to do that.The fixture list has to be totally arbitrary. The last thing the fixtures are is arbitrary ! Highly arranged for all sorts of reasons. Sure are, for a whole host of reasons, Reading festival being just one example. Brum and Coventry are ground sharing aren’t th...

Re: Season 20/21

I would expect the EFL to try and schedule the expected lower attendance games earlier in the season, in a similar way to how they generally try and schedule the long distance games for midweek in a normal season. So don't be surprised if we start the season with games against the likes of Sheffiel...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Dean Holden takes over at Bristol City. Championship clubs getting less and less ambitious with their appointments. Sign of the times. There you go.Big rumour Chris Hughton was on his way there.Hopefully he is still available when MB gets the P45.But maybe when push came to shove;Hughton thought he...

Re: Dai Yongge in trouble with Chinese government

I’m all a bit confused by this. Is this a smoking gun we should be worried about or just what we know that many football club owners have questionable dealings with their money? No point us being worried, we have no control over any of it. There’s been no hint of them being anything other than stra...

Bully. You are by far the thickest person on the teamboard and that is some achievement given the competition. Whoops, another rare occasion where Hendo is completely wrong and has made an arse of himself. That post to Paul was in relation to someone calling me a bully for saying more or less exact...

Re: End of season ratings

Swift 6? ie same as McCleary? enough said Masika same as McIntyre , Osho 2 higher than McIntyre ? I’m not sure a ranking like this makes sense. McIntyre is an interesting one.Against Luton,he played really well;but there again he might not have been up against much.The following games,I just felt h...

Re: Osho - best crosser of the ball at the club. Discuss.

I have only seen Aruna a couple of times,however he is vertically challenged and teams will target his lack of physicality if he plays at RB.Playing in midfield he can however see a pass and is tidy on the ball.

Re: Something sinister in the Championship

Didn’t Birmingham get done in the season,they were investigated;and get a one point discount on the penalty because they co operated.Sheff Wed worked the system by appealing against the charge,and not co operating,so extended the process so the decision would affect next season and not this.

Apparently we were under investigation at the same time as Sheffield Wed and Derby,for the same reasons.What happened to the enquiry into us ? Has it gone away ?

Something sinister in the Championship

Rumours of Sheffield Weds malpractice have been surfacing since Xmas.For some reason the EFL will not be deducting the 12 points this season;but instead they will lose 12 points the season coming.Charlton would not be relegated,if Sheffield Wed had suffered the deduction this season,and Charlton qui...

Old Man Andrews I saw the first rating and comment for Rafael and stopped. Thick as mince.


Can’t tell you how disappointed I would have been,if you hadn’t reacted.You need a course refresher,though.

Thanks, for, reinforcing, my, point.

NewCorkSeth I'm amazed anyone read that. Bit of spacing would be nice. Easier on the eyes.

Rafael 6 Few major howlers;but that nagging feeling that he should have saved a few.Poor short and long kicks;a constant problem. Yids 7 When he played.Season ruined by two major injuries.Physical and aggressive ,but lacking in finesse.A good buy however. Gunter 6 After a couple of poor previous sea...

Re: Bowen's Tenure

Why do people think we're well stocked in midfield? We've got a plethora of airy fairy attacking midfielders and one guy who can put a shift in. We play 3 in midfield. How is Rinomhota, Swift (likely to be sold) Olise and Holsgrove well stocked? Oh, and Araruna, a guy whose played one game there, l...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

Good luck to McCleary, Obita and Gunter - they have been model professionals throughout their time at the club. I think the Adam signing was a bit of a waste of money in truth but good luck to him too. Blackett’s time here was mixed but he was good at times. Our remaining squad is now very small. W...

Osho is technically not with us, he is out of contract. You are technically correct, the best kind of correct. I'm, sadly, with OMA on this one. If he isn't contracted he doesn't count yet. Hopefully he'll stay. The back isn't far off. Osho signs on and then if one of Watson or Holmes is up to it t...
