Re: Sprats v Mackerels..V Fleetwood at home. 31-11-21. 7 O'clock

And by all accounts, whilst it doesn't matter now, we were lucky to win and and a few of our lads got the run around. I'll put it down to them struggling against fresher legs and say it's a good job they've got a week to rest

Re: More Tin Pot Than Gold Cup - Jockeying For Position vs Cheltenham At Home (3pm 27/11/21)

Wrong side of a couple of big decisions, but I think a draw was probably a fair result. The headed clearance from Aimson in the 2nd half was incredible and rescued a point

Stand out performer was Kachunga - He's getting better by the game which means he'll be injured in training today

Well, that was loverly, that! 1 hairy moment with that incredible miss of theirs, but then completely dominated thereafter - Not always so easy against 10 men as Sunderland will testify after going a goal up against Shrewsbury who then had a man sent off. That finished 1-1 The 3rd goal was stunning....

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

Interestingly, perhaps, an ex-Wanderer picked up 12 yellows in this division last season (only three players received more). And not a name I'd have suggested... Find it hard to see Josh coming back, DSB - but not impossible. Aye, he wouldn't be my first target, even though he is out of contract in...

Re: Not the only Wanderers..v Wycombe away 20-Nov 3-O clock.

Can't see anything other than a disappointing result. Conceding soft goals slightly against the run of play and they'll go home taking some positives because we played nicer sideways passes and the odd diag

Re: FA Cup 1st Round Replay..: Stocky Tony’s County Away..Stockport replay Wednesday 17th live BBC 2

Boris, I don't think Dixon is the answer but I think he's fine for now. In that I don't think he's a catastrophe in the way almost every other unit of the team is right now. So summer for me, unless we fix the other areas first and there's a good option. He's certainly the best we have, but I think...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

If these owners are worth their salt, they'll need to back Evatt with sizeable funds in January. We need 5 players minimum. A couple of million from their own ware chest and possibly even 3-4m from Dapo for the greater good If they can't, or won't then they need to start answering some tough questio...

Re: FA Cup 1st Round Replay..: Stocky Tony’s County Away..Stockport replay Wednesday 17th live BBC 2

^^ Thomason and Lee together were indeed as bad as it gets. My biggest concern is that area. They offer nothing defensively (well, they offered feck all offensively, too) We lack pace and aggression. The Centre Backs are the same - Zero aggression. We can't even put big defenders in front, because t...

He can't say that kind of b**locks when he's just released his captain a quarter of a year before the transfer window opens After last night's antics Sarce can go feck himself. I'll take Evatt over him any day of the week and I don't even like Evatt. I couldn't give a shit about Sarce last night, b...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

The thing is that what Evatt is saying we need (leaders) are absolutely the toughest thing to find in any sport. Nobody wants to lose the kinds of characters who drive a team forward week after week and there are few of them about. He can't say that kind of b**locks when he's just released his capt...

With Santos, if they're countering and we're 2v2 or whatever, I wouldn't want anybody else in that situation. He's quite quick and can get his body across players and see them out However, when the ball comes into our box, he's absofeckinlutely feckin useless. Ball watches and let's forwards run acr...
