Re: JVDB's latest remarks!

Totally agree, Bracksroyal but there are still fans defending him too! But apparently those of us questioning JVDB's response are just dumb. Didn't see where anybody called you dumb? Burden of proof on you, and all that. You started a thread, I assume, to solicit response. You didn't respond or eng...

Re: England - the future....

Not sure Southgate has let himself down at all yet. Two defeats - one poor performance in Germany, but a draw or even a win in France wouldn't have been a disgrace. Outside of that we've conceded just 5 times in 11 games, got decent draws with Germany and Brazil in last November's friendlies, and a...

Re: Message to Tim Dellor and Konathon Low

Hoop Blah Where is Mick Gooding? He seems to have disappeared, or have I missed something?


Illness I believe. Perhaps the illness relates to him saying that Stam should be given another 10 games to prove himself each week.

I sat behind him at the cup replay and he was extremely dislikeable and moany. Good for Stevenage.

It is utterly baffling that some of you think a paid employee is going to break ranks and start slagging off the manager. Just dumb.

Re: JVDB's latest remarks!

Do you agree with him? Nope not even slightly but if I were Van Den Berg I'd be saying the same thing. Without Stam Joey wouldn't be playing professional football. Ah! So that's what he's been doing! Seriously would you not just say no comment or we are all doing our best or some such, why would an...

Eaststandman Did you read his remarks? He only just stops short of suggesting we should use Stam's shite for toothpaste!


Yep I read it. It is the same response you will see from any player at any club in the world.

Not sure what you thought he would say?

Re: Next Season's Squad

There would be a fire sale of epic proportions. Selling off all our assets like Swift, Gunter, Kelly and Moore on the cheap and the rest of the high earners like JVDB and McShane would be touted around to anyone that would listen on a free transfer just to clear their wages. We would have a few play...

Of course he will say that. He knows Jaap Stam is the only manager in world football negligent enough to give him first team football.

Re: Good luck Dave Edwards

Dave Edwards as a footballer is the definition of beige. File under Gunter, another player who is remarkably unremarkable. Can't agree with that. If we played a more wing based game he would score at least 8-10 goals a season for us. Yet another round peg in a square hole that Brian and or Jaap sho...

Re: According to Tim Dellor

paddy20 Said on radio this morning that he is hearing a rumour that something big is on the horizon (by the end of the week). He's not sure if its just a rumour but thinks it may be true. Any ideas!!


He doesn't know anything in all liklihood. Probably just guesswork.

Re: England - the future....

I caught a bit of the Sunday Supplement on Sky yesterday and they were bemoaning the lack of established star names and big game players etc in the England squad (which is fair comment to an extent) but is just typical of our thirst for celebrity and named performers over an effective team.

Have you ever watched Gilkes before a game in the warm up? Does very, very little coaching. Not that I'm passing comment on his ability as a coach, but what do you expect to see during the warm up? The coaching is done during the week and the warm up is purely about getting mind and body ready to p...

Did you hear how much his co-commentator wanted to punch him? There was genuine dislike there.
