Re: MATCHWATCH : Charlton Athletic (h) sponsored by Dave Shipperley

I was at Bury in the early 80's when we won for the first time in about 70 years thanks in part to at least one or two goals from the late Dean Horrix. Did he score one or two that day...? Because of that 3-2 win I have always has a slight soft spot for Bury they remind me of a northern version of w...

Re: BFTG - Wycombe Away

Hendo Seen the goal and it is a good save from the first effort but GP does really well to follow it in and score.

Re: Where would you rather watch football

Difficult...

Well I would probably say the Mad Stad, but I did used to enjoy the 'steam' on the southbank just after we scored...!!

I really think all seater stadiums are much less fun... Get the safety thing, but steaming just after a goal is what football is about!

Is that the same Kenedy that had a few issues in China on a pre-season tour a few years ago.

Something about disrespecting the locals!

Re: CONFIMRED: Lucas Joao

The Hope Akpan example too, above, showing me that playing against a team and then joining them probably isn't as rare as I thought, maybe scoring is though! Edit: Akpan signed at the same time at Nick Blackman - there can't be many other instances of a Premier League side debuting two players at t...

Re: Rumour - Ovie Ejaria

Gomes has said that a midfielder will be coming in this week and if it is him I would be happy-not that my happiness is the main concern of RFC-and he is a step up from Barrett and Loader in midfield. Barrett's only really played wide for the first team and Loader plays AM or wide or upfront. We ha...

Re: Where will we finish?

To escape relegation last season we had to ride high in the current form tables so why so many think we can't achieve mid table is beyond me and I doubt it's what Chelsea were thinking when they left the Mad Stad. We have some fantastic young players and much scope for them to thrive. FFP could unw...

Re: Where will we finish?

My thinking on this season has always that's it's one about the development of a squad and how Gomes stamps his mark on the team having had a full close season to work with them. Definitely looking forward to seeing how the younger players evolve in this team and am hoping that come the end of the s...

Bovril is class. Had it for the first (and also by no related reason the last) time at a cold and dark Salford FC game several years ago. Rate it.

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

Admittedly when we still had Lita, Long was still very average Yup. Remember when we had the luxury of persevering with players til they came good. Long's transformation with us is why I'm a big believer in confidence and hunger over raw ability. His touch was atrocious when he first broke through,...

This is a big step up as he has never really played at this level. Low wages and low risk.

Still can't...
