Re: Sone Aluko to China!

We should do everything to shift in Jan, even if it's free.....however if we're stuck with him he may as well be around the squad. He had shown his quality throughout his career before joining us. He's clearly a confidence player who was at the club in the dire Gourlay era. I wouldn't say I expect h...

Re: Rival Watch

I think Sawyers is right up there amongst all the more illustrious names to be fair. Bargain at £3m; controls games.

Swift is having his best season to date for us, but still has a little way to go before being considered a top player at this level.

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Not sure this is the place, but Smith's loan is going well this year. Still only 21. If he gets 15-20 goals in League 2 this year, surely he's worth having around the squad next year?

Re: BFTG Millwall

2 world wars, 1 world cup We were doing well.

Then Blackett came on.

Tbf he's barely played all season. Blackett has proven himself a reliable, professional squad player at this level, though admittedly he will never be a star at this level.

Re: 2019/20 Injury Watch

CrowthorneRoyal I spoke to Liam Moore after the match and he came off the pitch cos he was knocked out in the second fall. Said his shoulder was hurt in first half but was fine after the match.

What are modern concussion protocols? Pretty sure the safe thing would be to sit him out of the Luton match.

Re: Rival Watch

The league does seem open this year. If you look at our results against Preston, Swansea and WBA we should be capable of competing higher up the table. Consistency is key. The humble pie we may all have to eat over Bowen is currently heating up in the oven after the first 3 games; being top half by...

Re: BFTG Millwall

So just to clarify, most are of the belief that Swift's free kick was unlucky and worth a go but URZZZ thinks that it may have been a better option to play the ball in so that it could be contested? Both pretty valid views especially as Swift didn't score. The rest of most of the last two pages hav...

Re: How times change

Interesting thread. It's all relative. Think about clubs we routinely played prior to the SJM era; they may look at us and say we lucked out. Swings and roundabouts, though admittedly no billionaire could take us to the heights of City as we don't have the fanbase to compete. Imagine us in a shiny 6...

Re: Ejaria vs Siggy

Ejaria is nothing like Sigurdsson. Swift is a much better comparison than Ejaria is to Sigurdsson And :lol: at those who thinks it’s even close between one who played regularly for Spurs and Everton to someone who’s only just registered their first assist 12 games into the season I think he has the...

Re: Ejaria vs Siggy

What a ridiculous comparison. Gylfi was possibly the best player we’ve ever had. Ejaria isn’t even our best midfielder right now. That might change in the future but right now there’s no contest. +1 Although i assume you're saying Swift is better. Swift's best moments are better. I think Ejaria loo...

Ejaria vs Siggy

I saw Elmparkroyals have started this poll on Twitter. I'm not on Twitter, but thought I'd put it to HNA. My personal view is it's far to early to compare Ejaria to Sigurdsson in terms of what he has achieved at this club. Siggy carried us in 09/10 and had a composure and end product which we haven'...

Fulham in one photo. https://twitter.com/FootballFanCast/status/1187105478372974594?s=20 what would ours be? Sipping our artisan Oat milk Hazelnut cappuccino from the stall outside the ground? To be fair I've done that with a quiche at a cricket match, to go along with my carrot sticks and hummus.

Re: BFTT

Puscas weirdly reminds me of Hope Akpan, occasional moments of real quality mixed among mostly looking like a non league player. You don`t like him, fair enough, but don`t talk a load of shit,, slightly better than your hero i would say. He reminds me more of Hopeless Rakels, no quality and goes ov...

Re: Rival Watch

It really is a wide open league this season. You really can not predict results from one week to the next. It may come down to strength in depth over the season. Still fancy WBA Leeds with Charlton the surprise packet, Brentford and Sheff Weds to up there. Fancy Fulham too, though they have been fa...

Lower West
stealthpapes Fair enough, have not seen that.


Boye is very much a Bowen type of player. Hard working. The complete opposite of Aluko.

Boye looked like a walking red card under Gomes. Don't know what to expect under Bowen encouraging the "nasty" side of the game.

Re: BFTT

Am not sure why Baldock got MOM when he missed such a great chance in the first half and couldn't miss from a yard out but I presume much of what he did could be appreciated more by being there than watching on TV. Agree. Puscas's goal was very good and hugely important, yet too many berate him bec...
