Re: Squad for 2020/21

A couple of quotes from Bowen that give me some hope for next season “I came in with the job of rebuilding the club and the philosophy so I can't wait to get started next year to get my players in, my team together with maybe a stronger and different philosophy” Maybe a hint that he will be signing ...

Re: Bowen's Tenure

i think Bowen has done a pretty decent job and certainly deserves another crack at it next season. Progress for me this year was staying away from a relegation fight and he certainly achieved this and it was a job made a lot harder after the terrible start under Gomes. Hopefully next year we can pus...

Re: How do we become good again?

First of all we need to stick with a manager for more than 9 months. None of our past success has ever happened within 1 season of a new manager taking charge. It’s been built over a longer period of time. I’m pretty sure under Pardew , McDermott and Coppell there was times they could of been sacked...

Re: BFI Follow Middlesborough

A very flat performance and probably one we will see for the next two games as well now that our season is done. For me it did feel like every player just wanted to give the ball to Swift and didn’t take it on themselves to be creative, full backs didn’t want to cross it and no one ever fancied a sh...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

After Tuesday’s performance it feels like another “Big Summer” in the transfer market is needed. How many times have we said this over the last few seasons ? The first signing we should be making is a Director of Football who can work with the manager and start building a long term transfer strategy...

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

Very enjoyable game to watch last night, was intrigued to see how Bowen approached the game tactically against a Sheff Utd side that have given a lot of top teams a good game this season. After 2 minutes I feared the worse but once the sides confidence started flowing we looked pretty decent. The re...

Re: BFTG Barnsley

It wasn’t the most pleasing on the eye performance but great to get the win and see us do the “nasty” parts of the game well. Puscas MOTM for me, felt he held the ball up well and took his goal very well. A few months back he would of taken it closer to the goal before shooting so its good to see th...

Re: Bowen Out.

Sacking Bowen would be the wrong move in my opinion, why sack the guy who is learning about the squads weaknesses throughout the season and then don't give him the summer to address the issues and make us stronger. Ultimately we are struggling as we are missing Joao as a target man to build play off...

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: 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...

Not sure what was a worse decision me buying a season ticket this year or Paul Clements team selection last night ?

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...
