Re: How impressed are you with BMcD's return to the club?

It's not Brian's fault or even the players. It's the fans. Most of the people on here watch football on highlights shows. The few that go to games spend most of it making up songs or swearing at players or booing if their team doesn't score in the opening 3 minutes to distract themselves from how l...

Re: Rumour - Deniss Rakels

Oh aye for sure he could be ace But it's a shame our owners are pulling up on deals the manager wants and making ones he doesn't If Brian really doesn't want him, then wouldn't the owners just hold on to the cash and not make a signing? Seems daft to buy a player if the manager says he won't play h...

Re: Rumour - Deniss Rakels

As a bit of silliness here's a tenuous and highly implausible link between Rakels and the Thais for the conspiracy theorists. Board-member Theekharoj Piamphongsarn has a background in private banking and has been involved in 'developing the south-east asian market, especially Thailand'. http://www....

Re: SUPER VYDRA

The only way any player can justify such a ludicrous loan fee, is to be a significant part of a side that gets promoted. Besides, it's the club who have to be justified in their decision to sign him, not the player. In Vydra's case, he should be judged in comparison to his teammates and peers. And o...

Re: BFTG - Huddersfield

The first goal wasn't "Cooper's fault." It was McDermott's fault for allowing a 20-year old kid to be exposed (poor defensive drill) it was Ferdinand's fault for not being alongside Cooper, the team's fault for not screaming at him to be further upfield where a mistake would be less costl...

tidus_mi2 Lwj beat me to the posting of an image but pretty much what he said, how can it not be a red card?


I was at the other end to the incident and thought we were very fortunate at the time. Having seen the replay now, it's a red all day long.

Re: Alex Fernandez

If we're going to change the personnel in midfield I'd prefer it to mean we see Quinn back in the side rather than anyone else. With McCleary presumably out for a few games I could see Williams being moved out to the right again with one of Robson-Kanu or John in their natural position down the lef...

Re: BFTG - Huddersfield

25 minutes of diabolical defending and chasing shadows, 2-0 down and Huddersfield with a cigar on. Then the sending off (looked harsh from where I was sat), a peach of a free-kick by Piazon followed by a very patient performance to win the game. 5-2 definitely flattered us. Al-Habsi deserves a lot o...

Know one of his friends. He doesn't want to go. Happy here, but not been offered a new contract. This is the club shipping him out. Simples.

Re: RUMOUR - Blackman to Wednesday

If the fee and payment structure is halfway decent, I think let him go. It would be disappointing to sell our top scorer to a club in the same league, but he’s only had one, fairly short, purple patch in three years at the club. I would rather we sold him for a fee, than let him walk for nothing. Th...

Re: Wolves Predictions

My theory is that away teams are more likely to win on Boxing Day than at any other point in the season. Think about it, ours lads had Christmas morning, perhaps then had a light training session, before being put on a coach to some hotel where their diet and behaviour will have been controlled. Th...

Re: BFTG - Blackburn Rovers

Good, solid enough win yesterday, just what the doctor ordered. I wasn't surprised to see us play 442, but I didn't expect us to line up the way we did. That said, you can see why McDermott set us up that way - HRK playing the role he does for Wales (and where he's had most of his best performances)...

Re: Cardiff (A) Match thread - Sponsered by M4 toll

I think the problem started when Quinn got injured. Clarke seems to have decided that two central midfielders and an attacking midfielder is the way forward. All that has happened is the 4 attacking players have pushed on and a massive gap appeared in front of the holding midfielders. As they strugg...
