  1. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, his desperate sliding tackles are going to cost us a red card in the very near future. I’m expecting to see better things from him, and hope that he is just ‘trying too hard’, but what I find very concerning is that he just seems to have no touch, no control - and that should be second nature to any player at this level.

    I spent five minutes trying to find an edit button before giving up.

    He needs to watch those sliding tackles. He's a red car waiting to happen.
  4. Mind The Gap (song)

    Syllabically, works perfectly for our neighbours.
  5. Did Grigg shout "leave it"

    I have a similar tactic in our 7-a-side, when I play in goal. As the opponent is winding up for a shot, I shout 'Make a name for yourself' or 'Be the hero!'. Surprising how often it works!
  6. Text Score Notifications?

    Thanks all!
  7. Text Score Notifications?

    Well, I'm confused.
  8. Text Score Notifications?

    Anyone know of a service that will send me Text or Whatsapp updates to BCFC games, ideally for free? I already use the BBC one, which sends push notifications, but I am specifically interested in supplementing this with Text or Whatsapp so that it comes to my Fitbit Watch if I am playing on a Tuesday night and City are too. Thanks!

    Hi Robin, I would argue that a one camera setup is not good enough at this level, especially if you're charging a fee for the service. They do sometimes use a second camera, but it's sporadic and inconsistent. You're right in that no goals have been missed, but the amount of times the camera is left rooted in position when the ball has long since moved on had always given me the impression that the camera operator is doing something else at the same time.

    I'm inclined to agree. Surprised that a club in our position is happy to accept such amateurish camera-work, with no commentary, and that the number of screened matches seems to be diminishing all the time. Unacceptable. I'll be reluctant to renew unless there is some balance or fairness to this (eg the fee is related to the amount of games screened). Would be interested to hear the clubs response to this @Matt Parsons BCFCSLO
  11. An evening with Lee Trundle.Q and A

    When City toured Portugal in 2008, I and a handful of fans took the opportunity to go and watch the games and soak up some sun. Prior to one match, Trundle saw me on the sideline and asked if I wanted my City shirt signed. I whipped it off and passed it to him, only to see him disappear back into the tunnel. He came out ten minutes later with the shirt signed by the entire squad. I'll never forget that, and I still have the shirt.
  12. We're ready now let's do it.

    I admire Wright but I've noticed he is very susceptible to reacting to quick one-twos around him. He struggles to anticipate / react to the return pass, and often has to resort to body-checks.
  13. Shirts for Sale

    Comic sans on a football shirt. Someone should be sacked for that choice.
  14. Am I a bad person?

    I pounded the floor when the winner went in, but still getting some flack for having ‘insurance’. Am I a bad fan?
  15. Gegenpress v Park The Bus

    Thanks man, very interesting stuff.
