Re: Trotting over the Yellowbellies to three points - Lincoln City (A) 14/01/20

I didn't escape my attention that the majority, if not all, were inswingers targeting the near post. I remember reading that such a corner is statistically the most likely to result in a goal (I think the theory goes that it offers two opportunities to score, either from a direct header or a flick-...

Re: General Chit Chat

In this country, Bruce, one can legally call oneself anything one chooses. Only on certain legal documents will you be refered to by your 'legal name'. Be that the one you were registered at birth with, or have subsequently legally changed it to. The rules however are not completely set in stone. I...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

He might genuinely be thought of as an improvement, but on the face of it, I'd probably take him replacing Chicksen as confirmation we've accepted relegation and are now engaging on a cost-cutting / money saving excercise. I wouldn't have a problem with that so long as we're (relatively) competitiv...

Re: Trotting over the Yellowbellies to three points - Lincoln City (A) 14/01/20

It's shambolic. It's not all hill's fault, obviously poor players are to blame too,budgets etc. However the complete lack of any progress and his obnoxious demeanor just make me dislike him intensely.

Re: Up Hill and down 'Dale - Rochdale (A), 3:00pm, 11/01/20

I can only assume Hill wanted badly to do one over on Rochdale for sacking him, and he has taken the defeat personally. An own goal but prepared to give him another chance. Strike one out of Three. I think there may be something in this. 4 defeats in one season to the club that booted you must rank...

Re: Up Hill and down 'Dale - Rochdale (A), 3:00pm, 11/01/20

Its all about him, he could have come out & said how well young Hamilton played but he chose to make it all about him and have a go at everyone - when he actually hadn't even been criticised. I honestly cant see much of a future for him after this outburst, the man's a liability every time he opens...

Re: Up Hill and down 'Dale - Rochdale (A), 3:00pm, 11/01/20

There have been a few who invoked the spirit of Owen's ping-pong table on here as well. Coyle's tactical prowess and Megson's charm. What a winning combo that would be !! :hang: :lol: Sharon needs to get him to wind his neck in or it will all end badly for him, and as irritating as I find him, that ...

Also the comparisons I've heard with Phil (wotsisname?!) Parkinson have been supportive and favourable to Hill, so he's picking a fight over nothing with that one. He has form for this we were told. Said ages ago it would happen.

Re: Up Hill and down 'Dale - Rochdale (A), 3:00pm, 11/01/20

Another load of incoherent bollocks by Hill in his post match interview on GMR. I'm not going to give him grief for the footballing side as it stands, but good God he spouts some drivel and I've taken a very strong dislike to him. Can't embed tweets so best I can do...

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

Nsiala confirmed. Loan to the end of the season. Screenshot_20200111_125458.jpg An Ipswich friend sent me this. Alex Baptiste then. Just hope Hill doesn't do a Dougie and play him anywhere but his preferred position He'll be fine when it's his turn in the wing. Won't concede any penalties out there.

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

Amused at fans who seem to think signing loads of non leaguers is the way to go. Quick polish, bit of training and they'll magically transform into league 1 stars and get sold for loads of money. Most are in non league because that is the level that matches their ability. Players like faal yes, but ...

No matter who we sign, if 23-year-old Liam Edwards isn't to be entrusted with one of the two vacant centre-back positions in our starting line-up I'd like to know why.
Young and old pairing works for me. Wheater and Wright either or but not both.
