Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

So that's not far off being their best eleven. Such a lot of money spent on not so special players. Is it the manager or the players? Their worst pre-Christmas return of points since the Premier League started. 24 points behind the leaders and much nearer the bottom than the top (13 points). 8 point...

Re: 2019 Summer Recruitment

On the way to the game we were talking about the January transfer window. Our conclusion was that there would be no incomings but that Olise and Loader would probably go out on loan. We certainly have enough players on the books to cover all positions apart perhaps from an out and out left winger. I...

Re: BFTG - Derby

Derby-supporting mate who went to their 1-0 home defeat by Millwall last week told me to look out for Dwayne Holmes (their no. 25). So I did and thought he was outstanding-for his size very strong and also delivers a good long throw and his commitment showed when he knocked Meite over early on (Meit...

Re: BFTG Stoke

So, pretty horrific then if we're honest. 37points over the season, dead cert relegation. My farts are an improvement on how Gomes finished, that's irrelevant. You can't just say "Let's ignore 40% of the games" Why not ignore the most recent four games? A manager is judged over all his ga...

Re: THE BETTING THREAD

Winston Biscuit Wycombe 13/10 on skybet to win at home to 15th placed Burton is a good one to boost your acca


Well spotted Winston.
Sometimes the bookies' football odds are just wrong and it seems as though they continue to under-rate Wycombe.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Stoke City (a) sponsored by Ibrahima Sonko

A patched-up team, a point to follow the point in midweek and teams around us not getting many points so not a bad day.
Not a bad day if we beat Derby and QPR.

Moore and Obita are apparently also carrying knocks so maybe in danger of missing Stoke. Be interesting to see if Charlie Adam retains his place against his former team.

Re: BFTG Birmingham

Just watched the highlights. I didn’t realise at the time, but it was shocking goalkeeping by Rafael for the 2nd. Looked like a cracking free kick, but should have been comfortably saved. Rafael was that side of the goal and dived with his wrong hand. Yep. At the time I thought it was a good free-k...
