Re: Making HMS YouKnowWhat ship-shape: Winter 20/21 transfer thread

See, I think we're all in agreement that there's no ready-made replacement for Tutte amongst our midfielders - that the options are basically incapable of winning the ball in the middle of the pitch. As such, I think if I was Mr Evatt I'd be spending this week s eeing who out of the defensive optio...

Re: Crellin vs Rachubka

Who'd taken Aiden Davidson or Kevin Poole right now? Was it 93/94 when Aidan Davison played for most of the season? Not that I've any inclination to do this, but my mate reckons that if you watch the video back, you'll see that Davison is at fault in some way for every goal he let in. Sounds a bit ...

Re: Greg Clarke resigns

So 'people of colour' is OK, but 'coloured people' isn't. Who actually decides this? When we were growing up 'coloured' was the accepted or polite term for non-whites. I know things change but I do think he was harshly treated if that was the only reason. He does sound a bit of a tool though. It is...

Don't know anything about him and never seen him play, but if he's after first team football I'll pay for his cab to the UniBol myself.

That's a broken link.

Re: Crellin vs Rachubka

Pre Rioch, theres a few contenders for the goalkeeper's shirt, but since he's similar to Crellin (decent shot stopper, hopeless in the air), I'll start with wee Simon. Farnworth Whitworth Sutton Lydiate Deakin Bell Cantello Train Storer Rudge Moores I'd be squeezing Paul Comstive into that midfield...

Re: The Politics Thread

Joe Biden is going to be the oldest President ever. Only Reagan was a similar age but that was after his second term. I personally think he may not finish his full term meaning they could have their first female President. The fact that Biden has only just beaten Trump by the skin of his teeth says ...

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

From what I can gather by that video is that he like to turn players on the edge of his own box and fairly recklessly slide into tackles. Red cards and giving away penalties if he tries that with the crap refs we get.

Re: Whither the burke in the coracle? Shrewsbury (A), FLT, Tue 6 Oct @ 5.30pm(!)

Recommend everyone watches Adam Seniors interview. If ever there was a lad made up at simply playing for his hometown club that’s it. Really hope he does well and makes it here. When Dave Flitcroft was assistant, he asked for one of the academy squad players to show his face at my lads football tra...

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

He adds versatility can play CB or RB/LB in a back four which we might not play much but might sometimes. I think it’s shrewd. Experienced and knows Evatt. Have to say the club have absolutely excelled this summer. Getting a new management team squad together with more than a month to go and absolu...

I dont understand this talk of immunity as last week it was said it could be caught twice, so catching this once isn't like catching chicken pox :conf: I read an article yesterday about the same thing, HG.

If anyone believes the season to begin again in August should give this a bit more thought.

Re: More donkey lashing? Blackpool (A) 25.2.20 KO 7.45

Why did you do that us? I think you are sadistic.

To be honest, the second one one isn't much better. Again the strike is very good but to be able to control it like that in the area is poor. Ethan Hamilton was supposed to be marking the lad.
