  1. Woodrow......

    Would have thought that if Fulham have any sense they'll allow us to play him...
  2. Think that was Lloyd Owuso and Brentford in the League Cup but may have that wrong.
  3. Bristol City u23 v Liverpool u23

    Very impressed with Opi Edwards and Harvey Smith with Holden looking very decent also. Don't think Jojo had one save to make all night but did take crosses well. Not sure I thought his distribution was all that good - still managed to put 4 directly into the stand. Maybe Lee thinks we're really good at defending thrown-ins and it's a strategy. Thing that struck me was that they played in exactly the same way as the first team - high press, hunting and closing down packs, keeper distributing quickly, good movement. Clearly we're not just buiding a first 11 or a squad but a philosophy for the whole club, top to bottom. Not rocket science, but you can see the plan. Even more optimistic about the club, even if it was freezing cold tonight...
  4. OTIB 'get together'....

    No problem then unless you mean animosity? (I just love autocorrect).
  5. Train with the Rugby Club ...

    The rugby lads are in a massively inferior league having finished bottom in the top league and ignominiously relegated last year. This year they are fantastically well resourced by SL's money far beyond anything else in their league. They are simply doing what they should be with all their massive advantages and nothing else. Still, great result sqeaking past Ealing yesterday. By the way, I wish them well and hope they can establish themselves next year but any idea that something special is happening is just nuts...
  6. Frank Fielding - Not Forgotten...

    I believe he's been doing special kicking sessions with the rugby club. Oh, hang on......
  7. Diony

    Certainly didn't look great today but it's early days. Other alternatives on the bench were Engvall and Woodrow. Not exactly making the best of Steve's money with that lot atm. All that said, it's been a great season and if we can get back to form we could yet have a decent shot. COYR....
  8. This Penalty nonsense...

    Oddly the sort of holding and pushing that goes on is regularly not penalised (watch what happens to Flint at any corner we get) but then penalties are often awarded when there's no chance of a goal been scored. Have a lot of sympathy with the OP, who makes good points - think the rule needs an overhaul and the divers (i.e. cheats) need to be serving bans if found out after the event. As for this 'entitled to go down' nonsense the sooner that is stopped the better...
  9. Messi

    Had the privilege of seeing him three years ago. Incredible talent. Was unplayable on the day I saw him v Levante. Have heard quite a few say that Man City are the best team in Europe or even the World. Brilliant as they are I don't see their defence stopping Messi and Barcelona. Still, if anybody knows it will be Guardiola. Will be fun watching though...
  10. Sunderland

    .... or was it a Luger and Lime?
  11. Sunderland

    ..... and now he's the manager of QPR.
  12. Sunderland

    Oh dear. There were threads on here about how we were going to stuff Norwich and then Bolton. Think with all the great publicity we've had of late we might have fallen into the trap of believing it. 1-0 with a lucky rebound of a centre half's backside in the 7th minute of injury time would be great.
  13. Cards on the Table - Why I want to avoid the play offs.

    Oh well, if we do get to the final can I buy your ticket?
  14. Ever watched Rovers at home not playing City?

    Remember going to see Rovers playing Preston with my best man (a rapid Preston supporter) at Eastville a million years ago. Stood at the open end with half dozen other hardy souls/idiots and the rain was lashing down. Preston look the lead in the first half only for the gas to equalise mid way through the second. Sadly Rovers got the winner with 5 minutes left. Of course the Tote End went nuts and started singing and pointing at us: 'It's all gone quiet over there'. The few of us looked at each other and burst out laughing. They really are a special lot over there aren't they?
  15. Maggers..........(Merged)

    A bad mistake by Mags last night to be sure. Let's hope he can learn from that and kick on because if he can be a solid left back then that would allow Joe to play up the pitch. Added to that there's the long throws. Surely Mags is worth persevering with. I like the way we play out of the back, but sometimes you just need to put laces through it, as Kyle Walker demonstrated last night. A lesson to be learned IMO. Btw, whilst Pack is taking that well deserved bow just remember that he did something very similar against Wolves.
