Re: Zeros and Villans: Aston Villa (A) 30/9/17

Cheers Blu. Note PP in BEN ranting about the linesman but also honest about our failings upfront. Iles describes away end as clapping the team off the pitch. interested to hear someone's take who was at the game. Still gonna be a shit couple of weeks tbh but I can't accept we're dead and buried yet

Re: Zeros and Villans: Aston Villa (A) 30/9/17

I'd like to know how close those margins were today. Was it a red for them, when we say off the line, was it a gentle scoop or desperate defending. Did Villa play at a canter? I'm gutted, we all are. Lot of pressure on Josh now, perhaps too much.

Re: Zeros and Villans: Aston Villa (A) 30/9/17

What has happened to Beevers? He started the season badly and has just got worse. Weird. Thought he was one of our, if not the, best player's from last season. Got the yips or what.

A morale boosting 1-1 please. Otherwise a fortnight's worth of heavy hubris in store

Re: Bouncing back in Bristle? You must be off your Bristol Cities. Bristol City v Bolton 26/9/2017

I'm rather optimistically going to say I hear some encouraging signs from this performance. Not the embarrassment we were expecting and bugger all in the way of luck. Actually feeling a bit sorry for the players (as well as my bwfc self).

Re: Should Phil Parkinson be sacked?

It's a cautious no from me atm. What I can't get with is the idea that we'll get relegated and somehow come back stronger. There's no evidence for this whatsoever. For me, we were lucky to get promoted out of that swamp -- hitting a lucky winning streak in the final furlong, when teams around us wen...

Re: A visit from the Pride without Prejudice....

Us - One shot on target = one goal
Them - Two shots on target = two goals
Presumably not quite as close as that though then?

Really appreciate your match commentaries, thank you.
Will miss it today but have a great day with your family - guess they can have you the odd Saturday afternoon (but not too often please:)

I also managed to miss Birmingham game as there was no thread on't 'TRotters'. But, breaking with tradition ain't necessarily a bad thing. We have a new(?) 'match thread' forum...

Re: Commencing countdown, engines on (5, 4, 3 ...) - Leeds Utd (h) 06/08/17

Well, that was a useful reality check... Agree with the general vibe but have to say thought Beevers distribution very poor yesterday, so much wasted ball from the back (yes, I get the lack of options available). We were poor all round - seemed too repectful and then shellshocked. Positives re injur...

“Welcome Jim anyway. And an excellent name." Thanks LE, great to be here and finally peeping my head above the parapet. Used to idolize ol' Seamus:), yet have no memory of who his understudy was. Positive that no one feels a.n.other keeper is any kind if priority atm. They both take roughly equal am...
