  1. Loan watch.

    Saw a tweet from some kind of blog type account that covers Bath City. Said he looked very out of place his first match but now looks like a mini Luka Modric for them. Obviously an embelishment but most of our loanees get good reviews. Think it is a testament to our coaches. We are getting it right.
  2. 3.5.2

    We have been stronger defensively but there are 10 teams who have conceded less than us. There are other stats that suggest we are mid table when it comes to defending. We have made it to the top 6 with goals
  3. 3.5.2

    Our problem has been keeping goals out. We usually look like scoring even if we don’t always score 2-3. Derby and Norwich are extremely good defensive teams so while not ideal to not score, we did have a couple chances in each. Diedhiou back with Djuric and COD on the way and we will be fine for goals. Wouldn’t say no to another striker though.
  4. Hörður

    Don’t even think that is an opinion mate. Just sums the situation up perfectly.
  5. Mr Lansdown - up $75m today

    Tbf football is just catching up to the type of money players get in american sports. Football already has a bigger global fanbase than most of those sports. Imo, football is just realising how much money they can make. The players of course want their piece of it all. Whether you think it is good or bad I don’t think wages will be getting lower anytime soon.
  6. Will Fammy Diedhou return all guns blazing?

    I can’t see him taking too long to get back to full speed. It could be a bit of a blessing his injury leaving him fresh for the last 20 games. We have seen how the long championship season can wear a players form down(Kodjia and Reid for example) when they haven’t played the amount of games before. Anyway, he should be super fit. I imagine he has been strengthening the muscles around the knee and a lot of cardio. The speed of the game will take a couple games to get the feel back. He will be a massive boost imo. Him and Reid is a devastating partnership in the league. They create space for each other and focus too much on them and Pato has loads of space. I can’t wait for his return.
  7. Bailey Wright knee scan

    Think it is mostly bad luck. COD, Diedhiou and Hegeler plus now Wright have been bad tackles or landings. Those have been long term ones(hope Wright isn’t). Then Djuric which I think has more to do with his size. Pisano, GON and Paterson probably have more to do with the high energy game. Paterson has missed some but not enough where it is a worry. The other two are older and probably more prone to those types of injuries anyway. Especially Pisano where the games came quicker and were played at a faster pace.
  8. Target Man/Physical Presence

    I don’t get the it will take a month and a half for Famara and Diedhiou to be match fit. They won’t be sitting in a recliner until they start training again. Famara will already have had plenty of cardio work done and they will have cleared him to be fit enough and strong enough to come back to training. It may take 2-3 games to fully get back to his best but that takes us to beginning of Feb. Also, was it forgotten how many he scored just before his injury. I am quite sure he was into the top 10 in the league. That is after we accepted our 5m signing was misfiring. Then some questioning his ability to stay fit when it wasn’t a muscle injury or non contact. He jumped and fell akwardly. That does not suggest he will struggle to stay fit. Would be like saying COD will struggle with fitness now he was tackled late. Point is, the club do not need to waste money on cover for our record signing who was already on the way to raising his value to more than what we paid. Now if it is Djuric we need to cover we can have that conversation. Though I do think we need more of a fox in the box/on the shoulder quick striker. We had a thread on Nouha Dicko in the summer and always thought he would have been perfect with his recent injuries aside.
  9. That Baker clearance in the first half

    Good defensively but think Wright is really throwing us off our game at times. Doesn’t know when to get forward and when not to. Not the best decision maker on the ball. When he is in the right position at the right time he is reluctant to make the cross or pass. Thought he was actually caught too far forward on a few occasions. I don’t know what the answer is for that position but think Wright has ran his course there. Baker and Flint were good as usual though Flint got turned a bit too easily for me on the Baker clearance. Also Frank Fielding out of his area again. Is this instruction? Gives me more grey hairs everytime he does it
  10. Questionable credentials..

    Other than Pato being further forward not sure much more could have been done. Kent barely been here and Walsh plays centrally. Was an uneviable task today imo for selection. Needed Djuric or Diedhiou and we just do not have them. Clearly Taylor and Woodrow aren’t going to be trusted to start so what more could he do?
  11. Today

    Especially when you are the first to respond to your own thread. Not fooling me @Davefevs & @DaveF Sounds like BCFC fans were due a bad day, even when you didn’t know what was happening. Positive is we our first full week(well almost full) off for awhile. Hopefully a little more normality for the rest of the season.
  12. I said we need PROVEN if we want this

    False. You must be a WUM because I haven’t seen this much daft here for awhile.
  13. Angus Gunn

    Yea said somewhere else they are a good unit and hard to break down. Gunn looked really good. Being critical he has no left foot but didn’t see too many other holes in his game
  14. Flint,Baker,Pack.

    I don’t mind having a small team. We play a lot of quick one touch football nowadays and bigger players that can play that way tend to play at higher levels. Plus when Famara and Milan return we get bigger again.
  15. From relegation to promotion contenders

    Norwich are a bery organised unit. Was always going to be tough to break down. Their problem is scoring and they got a goal today. It happens. We do need a striker and I know everyone likes our back 4 but we are an average defensive team and it is what is holding us back.
