Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

There was no way Bridcutt was coming back.

Why would his parent club have him out with us, playing out of position. When other League 1 clubs would play him in his position.

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

I left on Wednesday thinking how many of their goals would we have prevented if a fit Hobbs (or now say Wheater) was playing in place of Wright. Definitely the 3rd and 4th. I like Wright, but they were criminal to conceed. I'd give Wheater a contract till the end of this season, and see where we're ...

Re: Kiss me Kate, Part One. Bolton v Shrewsbury. Unibol 3-0 Sunday 29th.

Feel sorry for Lowe. I had hoped he'd be first out the door in the summer, but he's been excellent the last 4 or 5 home games that I've seen. He and Lurphy were doing the ugly side of the game very well, so that the front four could run riot in the first half. NFI what happened in the first 10 minut...

Re: The North and South of it......V Southend at home. 3-0'clock Sat, 21-12-2019.

Bridcutt at CB is a case of risk vs reward. The risk is his height, set piece defending, the free kicks he gave away, and that many of the team are covering for him anticipating he'll be beaten in the air, which of course - he is. There's a nervousness amongst the team and the stands whenever there'...

Re: Quiz o'clock

Watched Danns play last night funningly enough - Guyana vs Panama on FreeSports. Oh, how fun my Saturday nights are. He played pretty well actually. Not bad for 36. A substitute came on for Guyana - Duke McKenna, apparently a BWFC U20 player. Never knew. He looked pretty handy. Quick, willing runner...

Re: Turn right at t-Bird i-th hand pub Hindley. Wigan away, Sat 16th,3-0'clock

In regards to Little, both goals Forest scored in the last game last season were partly/fully his fault. Those mistakes look to have sent us down, until Sir Aaron stepped up. Olk should start every single week. He got the confidence up against Millwall, and is one of 4 or 5 we have that is confident...

Re: He said it's Wednesday on Tuesday, who could argue! - Shef Wed (H) 12/03/19

I thought Connolly at left back was a good move. At least he doesn't take minutes with a throw-in like Taylor. And has more pace than Taylor. He did well. I don't think it's a coincidence that we won on the weekend without Lowe in midfield. He's not contributing anything right now, and hasn't for qu...

Re: Backs to the Millwall, Sat 9/3 3pm

Parkinson did his best to prevent a win by telling his players to defend soon after they went two up. Goes to show how poor his football management really is. Sorry but this isn't correct. There were three sometimes four players up in attack for most of the time between 2 nil and the full time whis...

Re: Ken Anderson - New Owner (Definitely. For Now ..... )

If it goes tits-up from here, with a buyer seemingly close, the fans won't forgive Ken.

Building up our hopes, before they come crashing down.

Now that key terms are agreed, and he's told us such, it must happen, mustn't it ?! Otherwise, I don't think he would have confirmed as much.

Re: The Ballad of a Reading Goal. Wild expectations. (H) 29/Jan/19

There was a moment, a brief moment, 3-4 minutes before Connell was taken off, where he was beaten on the inside, and rather than stop and chase as his mind wanted to and as he would have done 5 minutes earlier, his body kept moving/drifting in the wrong direction. If we could spot it in the Upper We...

I think we'll win, purely because we're due a win. 2-1

You reckon ?

I'd start the Olk every single week. One of the few footballers we have.

Little was responsible for their first, and but for poor finishing, would have been responsible for at least 2 more.

Re: A Millers Tale.....Bolton V Rotherham Boxing Day. 3.O'clock

The dumb thing about their goal ... Rotherham have a crap-ton of big players awaiting the free kick, and we have Donaldson and Ameobi in the wall. Donaldson seemed to be asking for a short one to take his place, but no one listened. Dumb and inevitable goal. Taylor and Lowe marking their tall timber...

We're not half as bad as I thought we might be. Haven't been to a game for a couple of months. I didn't see the first 15 minutes for reasons below **, but I only saw Leeds have two shots. A 0-0 was probably the right result, and could easily have been 1-1 with the penalty. What struck me about the g...

He does, however, have wonderful hair.
