Re: Gomes, Should he stay or should he go? Mk2

Tricky one to answer at the moment..... On one hand I believe continuously sacking managers is doing us no favours in moving forward as a team. We are not being well beaten (Apart from Fulham) by sides and seem to be losing by "narrow margins". You would like to think that if we continue t...

Re: BFTG - Sheffield

Well not the start we all wanted but pretty much one we are all used to by now. It was nervy performance for me, which perhaps is to be expected with the young side we now have. Felt the game was going to go away from us as soon as the referee missed the most blatant of penalties you will see all se...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

With the news of the soft transfer embargo and me generally being bored I decided to take a look at what our starting 11 would look like if we did not make any signings. GK Walker DR Yiadom DC Moore DC Blackett LB Gunter CM Kelly CM Rinomhota LW Barrow AM Swift RW Meite ST Bodvarsson Excluded Obita ...

Re: Are we screwed?

I wouldn't say we are screwed. In my opinion if we had Jose Gomes at the start of last season I don't think we would of been near the relegation zone at all. Club seem to be addressing the issues that have contributed to poor season after poor season. Shrinking down the squad size and getting rid of...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Gomes's comments to the Portuguese media don't look great for incomings. Apparently we can only look at free Transfers at the moment and cant even afford any loan players. I think we can forget about strengthening the squad overall, at this moment in time we just need a starting 11 that is competiti...

Re: Nine Very Difficult Games - Predictions?

I think 3 wins will keep us up. Very easy to feel negative at the moment due to Rotherham getting a list minute winner against a very poor QPR and us losing to a very good Leeds side. I feel there are a lot more twists and turns ahead. The key is getting our injured players back as quickly as possib...

Re: Is Kelly off?

Would be a great move for Kelly if the Udinese rumour is true. Cant help but feel something went wrong with is development once he hit the first team. When he came into the side he was a good passer, could run with ball pretty well and off the ball would be nipping at peoples ankles to win it back. ...

Re: Jose’s task starts here

If José can come in and give the squad a bit more confidence that will be half the battle won. If you look at the youngsters that have come in they are playing without fear and mainly impressing. Glad we have had a complete change in coaching staff too particularly a new fitness coach. Moving into J...

Re: New Manager

Whoever the new manager is, if he does manage to keep this set of players in the championship I don't think it should be under estimated on what an achievement it would be. The fact is whoever takes on the job will need at least 3 transfer windows to clear out most of the deadwood in our squad. If i...

Re: Next Reading Manager

I would be quite happy with Mick McCarthy, looks like he done a good job with Ipswich on limited resources and knows the league. As long as any new manager comes in and doesn't talk about getting to the Premiership. Even the new signings talk about getting to the Premiership.............lets just tr...

Re: BFT - I don’t know what to call it

Not sure what was a worse decision me buying a season ticket this year or Paul Clements team selection last night ? He said he wants his players to fight for a place in the starting 11 and when they do well he drops them. Why we ever changed the starting 11 yesterday I will never know. I have lost a...

Re: Team for Preston (A)

I would go with the below team, not too many changes to the side that played against Sheffield Wednesday. Sims coming in for Aluko and Bodvarsson in for Meite. I think we need to try and get a settled side from now on. Making changes every week last season caused us lots of issues under Stam. I just...

Re: Clement

Clement in for me. Sacking managers is what has got us in this mess.

Most of our issues have come down to stupid individual errors in my opinion. I'd just love to see a few players show that this run of form is hurting them at the moment.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Watford (h) sponsored by a difficulty to enthuse

Well Watford looked like a very decent outfit tonight. And got the result they probably expected a comfortable 2-0 victory. Thankfully there won’t be many teams like that in the Championship this season. But tonight was a real eye opener to how far off we actually are. Our biggest issue tonight was ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by 3 league wins in 2018

A very frustrating result which was looking like a comfortable 2-0 win until the silly mistakes by McShane. Despite Blackburn's pressure in the second half which you would expect from them being the home team, we actually had been dealing with it pretty well. Onto the positives it was good to finall...

Re: Clement OUT!!!!

Sacking managers constantly has probably contributed to the failings over the last few years in my opinion. In defense of PC the performances have improved.

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Really do feel sorry for the manager at the moment. Another game we somehow fail to take points in. The performance wasn’t great especially in the second half but a lapse in concentration costs us again. I just want to see a player take the game by the scruff of the neck and show some fight or some ...

Re: BFTG Birmingham

Great to see Tyler Blackett starting to play with confidence again, I know he can frustrate people but on his day he can be a top player for us. Given time hopefully Paul Clement and his coaches can get more consistency from him. Yep, agreed. To coin a phrase...‘There’s a player in there somewhere!...

A really enjoyable game last night. I didn't realise how much I have missed a front two strike partnership. They didn't get the goals last night but there defending from the front was great to see. So many times last season the oppositions centre backs had an easy game. Also great to see Tyler Black...
