  1. It will be announced at half time I'm sure
  2. Anybody else think we’ll win tonight?

    In our situation the first 15 minutes are critical, a goal either way either brings the game to life or kills it. I remember as a student in the 70's going to watch Arsenal v Ajax in a European Cup Semi Final, Arsenal lost 2-1 away like us and everyone said what a good result it was. After about 10 minutes George Graham headed past Bob Wilson for an own goal from a long hopeful ball under no pressure and it killed the game stone dead, we can't afford to make any mistakes like that.
  3. BCFC v MCFC

    Our first ever appearance on MOTD was home to Man City in 1966, note they have only ever won once at AG which was the fairly recent League Cup tie in 2007, our record at AG against them is W8 D3 L1 so we should be favourites!
  4. Our first League cup semi-final

    The League Cup was much lower importance than the FA Cup, even more so than now. I think the League Cup only started in the mid-60's so was still getting established at that time whereas the FA Cup was much more important than it is now.
  5. Taylor Moore

    Sounds like Mansfield, managed by Steve Evans were particularly obnoxious and Moore lost it with one of them (as did Gary Johnson in the technical area and was sent to the stands). Moore isn't a dirty player, it's all part of his education. I still think he's got a role to play with us, Pisano isn't young and we're not especially well covered at right back, Moore could play for the first team in the next couple of seasons if we don't get promoted to the Prem.
  6. Target Man/Physical Presence

    Pity we didn't hang on to Wilbs, he could have done a job for us for a couple of months
  7. There is a problem

    So we buy Grabban for £8m to cover the 3 or 4 weeks until Diedhiou is available then Djuric a couple of weeks later when only one of them will get in the side max? Doesn't make sense. Also if we lose at Derby it's not all over for second, still plenty of games left. Personally I think we'll finish 4th or 5th which will still be a good season with a chance of promotion. We are paying the price of our cup run but who on here would rather we hadn't had it?
  8. Ryan Kent - recalled from Freiburg, and now signed on loan.

    He might start tomorrow with Magners moving to the bench or at least come on as sub in 2nd half, we need some fresh legs.
  9. 1-0 away from a cup final...

    At least if we are one up on 90 we'll get extra time at AG rather than at their place, that's a realistic target
  10. My strange semi final dream

    Sounds a bit like the last time against Forest in the 1st leg when we scored against the run of play but conceded right at the end with an OG for 1-1, perhaps you were remembering that game?
  11. The Semi final

    It's a pity we didn't draw Arsenal or Chelsea for the semi, although unlikely there would have been a chance of catching those teams on an off-day, and if we'd had Man City in the Final anything can happen in a 90-minute game. My main concern now is that we get a thrashing that could peg back our league challenge. If we lose by 2 or 3 goals tomorrow we won't have done any worse than most Prem teams so shouldn't be too disheartened, I just hope we don't panic if we let one or two in.
  12. Fielding or Steele.

    Frankie's no 1, he'll be playing
  13. Fielding or Steele.

    I think he said Frankie was disappointed at missing the United match but that Steel would play in the FA Cup, ie implying it would only be fair to give Frankie a game against Man City
  14. Liam Walsh - Now confirmed signed (merged)

    We mustn't build him up too much, he hasn't much experience at senior football so imagine he'll only have bench appearances for a while (a bit like Brownhill, O'Dowda etc when they first joined). Needs to be given time to prove himself, will make some mistakes to start with but we seem to have the knack on taking these talented youngsters to the next level.
  15. Highlights - brief analysis of Villa

    Is Baker fully fit, thought he was doubtful for the Wolves game after a knock? Regarding Hogan being a 'real striker' wasn't that the first time he's scored this season, ie not a patch on Bobby R?
