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

If Bowen is clueless I don't know what most of the managers we've had in recent years would be described as. Not proven managers, Stam (never managed) Clement (poor previously) Gomes (Not exactly successful anywhere) Bowen (DOF) Yes they all know football but we have an unbalanced squad and need so...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (a) sponsored by Dylan Kerr

Simmops Awful game, and a complete distraction. We will never win the cup so should go for the playoffs instead.


This season the Cup Final & Play Off Final are two days apart. In the ludicrously unlikely scenario that we qualify for both, which game would you prioritise?

Re: BFTG - Forest

Aside from the fact that if shouldn’t have been a corner in the first place, looking at the replay both Gunter & Morrison are appealing well before the ball does/doesn’t cross the bye-line; I’m guessing for handball against the Forest no. 22. The current law is that any handball, deliberate or n...

Re: BFTG - Derby

Yes, if the defender is deemed to have made an honest attempt to get the ball then its now a yellow I was in line with it in the East Stand, it looked like Meite was losing control of the ball so whilst it looked a pen, the sending off was very harsh If it’s a pen it’s a sending off as Malone clear...

Re: Is Quest the best, most balanced, EFL highlights football program ever?

From Despair To Where? Not seen it tonight. Was Holloway on, whinging about not getting the Reading job.


Murray commented that Mark Bowen must have interviewed well. Holloway didn’t bat an eyelid & complimented Bowen on the job he’s done so far.

Re: BFT whatever the hell that was

I thought Gallagher had an excellent game for them. Can only dream of our forwards putting in a shift like that. Blackburn had our system sussed from the start. Huge gaps behind our wing backs for their forwards to run into, drawing our central defenders out to full back positions, where they looked...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (h) sponsored by Steve Stone

Slightly puzzled by the BBC report... https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46766459 ...which talks about us "defending in numbers" and only looking better once Forest were down to 10 men. At no stage in the game did Forest ever have a spell of pressure and look on top. I wouldn't say it w...

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

Missed the first 35 minutes but here's my thoughts. Mannone 5 at fault for the first goal, he's just a bit average. Yiadom 6 lots of promise there but ran in to challenges too often and that shot was stupid. Better than Gunter Richards 6 weak and got bullied off the ball a few times same as last ye...

Re: Back from the game - Norwich

Re: FA Cup Round 4 Draw

regardless of that, pricing must be agreed between the two sides, since the away team get some of the gate for FA cup games, so its not as simple as us just deciding Not since last season.

The BBC's Match Stats: Barnsley are winless in six home league matches (D1 L5) against Reading, since winning 3-0 in August 1996 in the season they won promotion to the Premier League.

Re: Jaap's Radio Comments

Hound To be honest, a couple of wins and it will all be forgotten, as it was last year

It was hardly all out mutiny in the stadium. TBH, surprised he even mentioned it


If Dellor hadn't asked him if he thought the team were motivated by the booing, he probably wouldn't have.

McCleary for Grabban, Kelly for Swift and Beerens for McShane for me - if Obita is fully fit that is. If he isn't then I think we need to go 5 at the back and try to work out how we fill that LB position. It really is the one spot we can't adequately cover imo Gunter comes across, and McCleary play...

Re: BFTG Fulham

By half-time the Sky Fulham fanboys had changed that absolutely clear offside, acknowledged as such by the commentators at the time, to 'a question about offside'! Such an obvious offside we could all see it from behind the goal. Did my eyes deceive me or did the linesman flip us the bird for the a...
