  1. No more strikers incoming?

    I think this is concerning. The guy just can't finish for ****. You could make a compilation based on last season alone of him lying on the floor with his head in his hands after missing a sitter
  2. Lee Tomlin

    Watch him become amazing again over at Pantomime Villain FC. He didn't fit here but it's a shame he's going to them as you can guarantee it will bite us
  3. Why are people obsessed with Ollie Watkins?

    I would say so, yes. He is lightweight and would get bullied by experienced Championship defenders. He is often isolated when up front by himself
  4. Why are people obsessed with Ollie Watkins?

    I have watched Ollie quite a few times this season. He is a fantastic prospect, but I do not think he would necessarily fit our style of play. He is an attacking midfielder/shadowstriker who often plays off a target man who can hold up the ball- this was Reuben Reid this season. He makes runs to the flanks to stretch the defence and is capable of good finishes himself. Go to 0:51 of the Wycombe game to see Ollie on the right flank, drifting from his role to initiate an excellent pass that (eventually) resulted in a goal. Keep watching the clip to see Ollie once again drift to the right flank to create an assist. He is not doing this as a winger- he has freedom of the entire attacking third and finds space excellently. Combined with Reuben's experience and ability to make time for Ollie to make these runs, the combination could be very effective I think the most apt comparison would be with Bobby Reid, only with the ability to finish. He scores the final goal too, hilariously taking the ball off the Wycombe defender. I was at this game, and when Ollie came on in the 60th minute with the score at 1-1, he changed the game. There was a real buzz whenever he got the ball, and this has been a recurring theme whenever his is playing. He is still raw and has his off days, but this is to be expected. I think the Championship would be a huge leap for him, and any team taking that risk need to realise they have someone capable of excellence if he is nurtured and given the confidence to round out his inconsistencies. (while nowhere near Ethan Ampadu, who Chelsea have just snapped up). I'm happy to answer anything about Ollie- obviously my view is only subjective but having seen him play he deserves most of the hype around him.
  5. Striker injuries - Bobby Reid

    Needs to seriously improve his finishing before he could even consider playing there- I like the guy but he has a real tendency to miss sitters
  6. Golbourne

    I definitely agree with this. It was nice to actually have a proper LB since we made the stupid decision to let Cunningham go, and from his interviews you could tell that Scott was a man that really wanted to be back here. had unfinished business, and was willing to assist the project in any way he could, even if this involved taking a squad rotation role at times. He was never meant to be the long term solution but he was a very useful signing in 15/16 that helped stabilise the ship
  7. Alex Neil to manage Preston

    I hope he does terribly. We need some teams to start dropping and Preston, rather infuriatingly, have done very well so far on a small budget. Nothing tops off a bad City season in the Championship quite like being beaten by PNE. If we want to put distance between us and the relegation spots in order to go midtable we need some upper midtable teams to decline- not necessarily into relegation spots themselves but rather in the region of 16th-19th
  8. Cladding

    The seemingly innocuous term of 'cladding' will become one of the most used words of the year in this country, thanks to the disaster at Grenfell. Boggles the mind how the construction industry can get away with wrapping buildings and residences in substances that not only catch fire, but spread it rapidly. I'm going to stop talking about it now as it's a football forum and I could ramble on for days about Grenfell
  9. Birmingham

    They were one Aden Flint shin away from being condemned to L1, and I so wish we had done it as had Blackburn stayed up they would have continued being a mess and inevitably finishing below us. Birmingham, however, may recover from last season's brain fart and make a recovery. They're an odd team- so badly run over the last few years by genuine criminals but they always take three points off us
  10. The new training kit (Merged again)

    Looks like the kind of thing you'd see an employee at Tesco wear while pushing trolleys in the pissing rain...Are you sure that colour wasn't meant to be going to Oxford, Bristol Sport?
  11. Garry Monk - Resigned From Leeds Utd

    I like r/soccer too ;-)
  12. Fixture release date....

    Brentford at home I reckon
  13. Big Sam

    Anyone who even has the slightest thought that he would come here is completely and utterly deluded. Why would he? He'll be off to another Premier League side- Watford maybe?
  14. Interesting Reid

    He'll probably have 'This year could be his breakout season' written on his tombstone
  15. Yeovil Pre-season Friendly Announced...

    Preseason is a time for the side to test their match fitness against sides with varying levels of ability. I doubt we will only be playing sides the size of Yeovil and would not be surprised if we played Bournemouth too if we are staying in the south west.
