Re: The athletics/running thread

Kipchoge... wow. 68 seconds per 400m 105 times. 14:10 for 5k 8 and a half times. Mind boggling stuff. I don't like the concept, would rather see it done within allowable record parameters in a race, but nothing but respect for Kipchoge. He's had an amazing career, won the world 5000m title in 2003 ...

Re: Keith Hill's School For Gifted Youngsters

David Lee tried to throw Parky under the bus didn’t he? Keith Hill May well want his own men in. McGinlay was very critical, Lee and Kelly are very tight with him. Not sure about Jimmy P. Is Hill in charge of these people? Or do they all answer to Beaugeard and Brittan directly? Not sure what the m...

Re: Keith Hill's School For Gifted Youngsters

He's a cock talking like that to the press. Powers that be need to rein him in. Might well be absolutely right but needs to be said privately in one of the office hidey holes rather than to the press. Happy with his work with the squad, which is the main thing, but the running off of his mouth I ca...

Re: I wish I'd never left Bolton...v Blackpool H. 8-0 clock 7-10-19.

Ref was a dick in the 2nd half. Absolutely battered them in parts. Their defenders will be thinking what the feck happened there. Jay Spearing can feck off aswell, prick. Trying to get Verlinden sent off early in the second half is a shit house move. Could easily have beaten them by 1 or 2. Darryl ...

Fine effort. We've got a good defence, all of them played well. Pleased for Zouma after a shaky period. Attacking-wise many teams will find Blackpool tough to beat. We will get better up front and Dodoo will make a difference.

Re: I wish I'd never left Bolton...v Blackpool H. 8-0 clock 7-10-19.

Shame Bridcutt had to go off though he wasn't having the best game (showing for the ball is enough for the sky commentators, even if you keep giving it away). But he's a class act who was making us tick. Going to have to go a bit more direct (relatively) without him, though mightn't be a bad thing....

Re: I wish I'd never left Bolton...v Blackpool H. 8-0 clock 7-10-19.

Lee Hendre summs it up. No real quality in the final 3rd for both teams. Must say it was a quality 1st half for our defence. They've had 2 chances of note. Bridcutt injury is probably going to be a dislocated rib or something rediculous as is the luck we have. Hobbs has impressed me, Emmanuel too. ...

Home Bargains? Magnificent :lol: That aside, possibly our smartest kit EVER! :) Best thing is Dodoo looking like he'd rather be in the dole queue as a free agent than seen dead in it. Anyway, would love to be there, but the Fox and Hounds in putney.will have to do instead. Come in you bargain-basem...

Twitter going between the kit masturbators and the 'if you criticise it you're not a real fan.' I just find the whole thing amusing.

He's a bit like Lennon in that he's up and at em and willing to give youngsters a chance to prove themselves. I'll have to chat about it with him some time in the bogs at the Seven Stars.

Re: No Jackett Required - Portsmouth (A), 3:00pm, 28 September

Probably looks worse than it is. Having never been a goalkeeper I'd give him the benefit of the doubt. Possibly a better goalkeeper would save it but it's no howler. Given how exposed he's been he's bound to make the odd error by law of averages. Sounds like he's plenty more in the plus column this ...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

The tactic of hitting clubs with a big penalty that they know will be reduced on appeal is such a pathetic waste of time and resources. The club should aggressively go after the EFL and highlight it's absolute negligence and corruption in letting Harvey get so comfortable with Anderson. Clubs need t...

Loving some of the skill on show in the clips I'm.seeing online. Great to see Hill giving wingers the freedom to express themselves. Only been to the Gillingham game so far, looking forward to seeing the new team play. Despite looking forward to some southern games, unfortunately I'll miss Portsmout...

Re: Jack fell down and Hill came tumbling after. Sunderland @ Home. 21/09/2019 3pm

I personally disagree with giving Zouma a free pass on this one. Me and my mate said when Zouma came on that he's got a mistake in him. He needs to sort that stuff out and be more consistent. Apparently, he was error-strewn for the U23s as well. I've also read that Hill blasted him for not being re...

Although I will add he was very unlucky and shouldn't be criticised in any way for that. Just seen Hill's comments. Gone from happy-clappy 'the score doesn't matter' to publicly slagging off a young player for a debatable mistake. Great that he's got them playing but I really need to avoid listenin...

Handball rule is weird isn't it. Quite a lot of the time I think the angle it comes off affects whether it "looks" like handball or not. If it bounces off normally and your arms are by your side then you tend to get away with it. If it goes inside your arm between your body and behind you, or rolls...
