Re: Next 5 games are key

We seem to be more suited for away games and even with three home wins on the bounce we don't really seem to control games at home. 4-2-3-1 is great away from home and really seems to suit us well. However, maybe a change of tactics at home is needed, and i would prefer to play two up front at home ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wycombe Wanderers (h) sponsored by Keith Scott

Some say Holmes was motm material Holmes was good and has done an amazing job as stand in over the past few games, however he isn't a natural right back which shows in his attack play. The games against Wycombe and Rotherham should be ideal for Esteves to get to grips with the English game and i'm ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wycombe Wanderers (h) sponsored by Keith Scott

So a real local derby played under the lights against Wycombe Wanderers whom may not be one of our fiercest rivals, however geographically i think the are second only to Aldershot and we share the top of the league on points with Brizzle. It doesn't get much better than this we ask, however Covid ha...

Re: BF I follow Barnsley

Today typified that old saying, if you play badly and win, that can't be a bad thing. Today wasn't pretty but it was job done. Good teams learn how to win when playing poorly, and today was that. Barnsley pressed high and frustrated us, but they never really looking to threatening themselves, howeve...

Re: Season 20/21

As usual where we finish will mainly be down to how we start the season. A strong start normally means a good season in this division. I have tracked this for some years and on average if a side is struggling after 10 games they have an 85+% chance of ending up bottom half at the end of the season....

Re: Season 20/21

If we can keep our main core of players fairly injury free and strengthen out wide i really do believe we have the capability of suprising a few people this season. In Joao and Puscas we have two very good strikers who just need support, in Olise, Ejaria and Swift we have the capability to provide t...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

I read Baldock absent from training but not clear if it’s injury related. What are people’s thoughts on Marc McNulty? Worth giving him a go this season? Played in the right system McNulty could be a good player for us and save us some money. The guy is a good finisher but cannot play the lone strik...

Re: End of season sale - value the squad

Is Meite really a good striker? would he have scored lets say 25 goals if he was in our 106 point record breaking team, with the amazing fast counter attacking wing playing system? Good Q I often think that a striker doesn't matter as much as the system and the service and our issues have been no p...

Re: End of season sale - value the squad

5 Million for McIntyre (First season, but i admit a great prospect) and only 3 Million for Meite (17 Goal striker/Winger). I'm pretty sure goal scorers with a good goal to game ratio tend to be worth more than defenders, however, it sometimes makes me wonder how Meite got 17 goals in this team when ...

Re: Bowen's Tenure

I'm on the underwhelmed fence, mostly down to the uninspiring and boring football being played, and especially not having the ability to turn around our home form. But i do believe we have had so much turnover in managers in the last however many years that its time for a bit of stability, so i woul...

Re: How do we become good again?

The biggest thing for me is we lack drive, power, pace, strength We miss rough-house strike partnerships like Long-Hunt. We miss raw speed. Kebe for example. Our only truly fast winger is out on loan and basically finished. Strikers and fast wingers are not just about the goals they score, but abou...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Charlton Athletic (a) sponsored by Deniss Rakels

Miazga is available for this one. Meh. On loan. We've got an Academy CB keeping our captain out with two clean sheets and another Academy CB doing well at RB keeping two clean sheets. Not sure he'll get another start this season. Midfield needs work, as does attack. But, the shape works ok away. .....

Re: BFI Follow Huddersfield

Work in progress i guess, the way we play and the current formation seems to suit us away from home, hence our best results all coming on the road. However, our home form has been dreadfull and we always sit back and let the away team dictate the play. Its time we try a new formation and find a way ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Huddersfield Town (h) sponsored by Craig Maskell

THis Talk of not throwing players in at the deep end or them not ‘being ready’ is ridiculous. McIntyre is not 17. He’s 21. He is more than old enough, big enough, good enough. Since he made his debut he has looked at home. Just stick him in the team and let him play ! Rino and Olise pretty much too...

Things need to change, we need some young hungry players up for a challenge.

Let Swift go for anything north of 5 million plus add ons, and get a big wage off the books!! Get ...

Re: The next 5 games - a key point in our season

One win should see us safe, however after today's defeat there really seems to be something not quite right. There was no fighting spirit, players not playing in their naturel positions and Bowen's whole demeanour looks like a man on borrowed time! Yes, Brentford are a very good footballing team, bu...

Re: Rival Watch

In all honesty, we will need one win to be safe, that would then mean the bottom four would need to win 4 or 5 of their remaining seven games which ain't gonna happen especially if you factor in games against each other at the bottom. We were in a far greater pickle this time last season and escape...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

The current squad numbers 29 which Mark Bowen keeps referring to as a large squad. Clearly numbers have to fall. I make it that of the 29 players in the current squad that 12 are out of contract at the end of the season as follows: Loader,McCleary, Boye, Miazga, Ejaria, Gunter, Masika, Obita, Black...
