Re: BFTG Gillingham

Good Rinomhota - looked the most accomplished of the youngsters, comfortable on the ball, capable of putting a tackle in. Got himself in a good position in the first half but dragged his shot. Kelly - Went missing in the first half, second half was a completely different player and seemed to be play...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Entered on the website for the kit launch as I had nothing else to do today. Got picked and went along, and was pretty underwhelmed by the whole thing. It was effectively a short video on a VR head set, first with some old players talking about old kits and then the players in the changing room seei...

Re: BFTG - Wembley

We lacked width. We've played well all year with two wide wingers and today struggled to do anything with the ball untik G Mac came on and we pushed Obita in to more of a LW position. The ref completely bottled sending their number 6 off (Hogg I think?). He had been booked in the first half, bought ...

Re: Team for Fulham (h)

Is Oxford still at the club? If so could fill in at CB and push Blackett over if Obita is injured.

Other than that, Kelly for Swift and Mendes for Grabban

Re: BFTG Fulham

Great atmosphere in the away end! The game was more about containing them and hitting on the break, Obita took his goal well. If we play the same formation on Tuesday I'd like to see Mendes in for Grabban. McShane's challenge did look a little reckless and high live, however did seem to make an atte...

Re: BFTG Newcastle (H)

Is Grabban allowed to jump for a header? Every time the ball came near him in the air he made more of an effort not to head it than head it! Ridiculous!

Re: BFTG - Brentford

You can't play Kelly, Mutch and Swift in a 3 man midfield, they give the defence no cover, don't track back enough and with the exception of Kelly seem to be terrified to put a foot in especially in a 50/50. Communication at the back seemed woeful at times and thought we really missed VDB or Evans i...

Re: BFTG Birmingham

I don't mind the system and think we are playing with more shape and what appears to be a game plan, which is much more than can be said for the last few seasons. I've read some comments above about Williams and can't help but agree. I feel that he's the player in our midfield that our system doesn'...

Re: BFTG - Ipswich home

Al Habsi - 8 made a couple of good saves, seemed calm when he had the ball at his feet Gunter - 7 always seems to give his man to long to get a cross in Moore - 7 looked solid, seemed comfortable bringing the ball out of defence, a couple of wayward long range diagonals let him down McShane - 7 soli...

Re: Squad Numbers 2016/17

I don't think that you'll see as many young players get loaned out, especially pre-Christmas. With the EFL trophy and the European U23 Cup that they are playing in I think the likes of Fosu will be given an opportunity to show in these games

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bournemouth (h) sponsored by preseason apathy

Sensible pricing from the club meant that it wasn't actually a bad crowd for a pre-season friendly! If we play it around that much at the back in the league then we will concede some silly gifted goals. VDB looked pretty no nonsense in tackles and will get sent off a few times this year, probably fo...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Whilst I get the thinking behind a Late launch gets more people excited and therefore more likely to buy. You can probably count on one hand the amount of shirts the club has sold since the last game of the season, so there's got to be some merit in an early launch. Why not release the away shirt in...

Re: McDermott Sacked (AGAIN)

9 wins from 30 and losing 6 out of the last 7, hardly surprising that he's gone.

Timing of it seems very strange tho, I would have thought if they were going to sack him, they would have done it after the Blackburn game?

Re: BFTG Preston

A completely effortless performance, McDermott should be ashamed. Look back 6 years last game of the season we won 6-0 at home and set us up for the next season!! Set up all wrong, too many players playing in the wrong positions and lacking any width. Only highlight was Barrett in the 2nd half

Re: QPR (A)

With Premier League teams capping the price of away tickets to £30, surely it's time for the FL to do something similar, £20-24. £27 for QPR with nothing to play for is a complete rip off
