Re: What a load of bollocks.

It is a little ironic how I who supposedly won't tolerate anyone else's opinion am happy for a couple to do whatever the hell they like. Yet you seem deeply unhappy and offended by their choices and the fact they seemingly have voiced an opinion different to yours. :roll: I really don't give a crap...

Re: FV Recruitment Model

One of the many interesting things about Brentford is that they recently closed their Academy set-up and introduced in its place “Brentford B”, which is a team comprised of young players who are signed upon their release from other clubs. It plays matches against the same Academies as the rest do b...

Re: What a load of bollocks.

Seems a bit harsh asking them to repay the refurb costs back. Do they just go back to being ordinary Joe's now to earn a crust? He in the army and she back on the box? I think they've a lot more about them than Fergie and Edward but they're were pretty hopeless at earning outside the royal sphere. ...

Never, ever going to happen. If anything, I think it'll get a whole lot worse for them The whole sorry tale puts me in mind of girls that go in the pub with their tits hanging out and get offended when old men look at them.

Re: FV Recruitment Model

Burnley just feels more old-school sensible financing. Picked up good 'uns from the rags like Michael Keane and Dwight McNeil but muich of the rest is taking a gamble on players too good for the Champo whom the other Prem clubs won't touch; sometimes it works, sometimes (Andre Gray) it doesn't. I w...

So I think it best that they pay their money back go abroad and live a happy life free from the scrutiny and management from their so called family.{/b] Never, ever going to happen. If anything, I think it'll get a whole lot worse for them Oh from the press absolutely. I'm not sure what they could ...

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

Yeah good experience for Crawley, play while Burns is out then go away and work on your game and target Denly/Sibley. Delighted for Pope, been excited for him for a while but injury etc mean it hasn't quite happened for him. Looks the real deal though. Will have natural ups and downs as people star...

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

Yep credit where its due - we finally made a score and SA buckled. Ollie Pope looks the business and IF we can sort out the top 3 - we may actually be onto something. Bowling department looks strong to me - options all round. Half a thousand does strange things to the mind. :-) Pope's last three in...

Re: FV Recruitment Model

Long term sure but wouldn't be a priority now. Limited numbers of folk who'd uproot and move country for League 2 wages. Not zero, but I don't think it's an efficient use of resources atm. Better off looking at non-league, lower league and any of the Prem teams' (particularly United, City and Liver...

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

Good win for the boys. Very comprehensive. Maharaj and Paterson showed there weren't too many demons in the pitch if there was a bit of attacking intent, which makes it all the more mysterious the way the Saffers approached it yesterday (occupy the crease for 2 days) - think they might have been be...

Re: FV Recruitment Model

I am not surprised that this is the model the new ownership have decided to take, but certainly pleased to have it confirmed. Hopefully they have the sense to develop a model tailored to the nuances of our club and don't try to directly copy Brentford, or any other club. Also how Hill fits into thi...

FV Recruitment Model

Fascinating article from Marc Iles here. https://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/sport/18172165.bolton-wanderers-boss-keith-hill-clubs-new-recruitment-approach/ Bolton will seemingly try to implement an analytics led approach to recruitment and one can assume sports science, coaching etc...

Re: Faal Mental Jackett - Pompey (H), 3:00pm, 18/01/2020

This season has been hopeless from the start getting thumped 5 and 6 by teams some of our fans have barely heard of and very very little hope at any point. I've had loads Eye of the beholder, innit At best we’ve been 12/13 behind. And when we were we had injuries and potentially further points to c...

Re: Faal Mental Jackett - Pompey (H), 3:00pm, 18/01/2020

There are bright spots. Sadly this season is one of possibly the worst in memory results and enjoyment wise. That's true, if you've forgotten about last season already! I mean last season we started well and there was a glimmer of hope before off field events took everything to its natural conclusi...

Re: Faal Mental Jackett - Pompey (H), 3:00pm, 18/01/2020

Poor first half from us, excellent second. I thought Pompey passed it around nicely in the first half, as opposed to us being poor. I thought they looked a very average side. We had nothing up front first half and it showed. O Grady made a big difference simply by being there sadly he is useless. B...
