  1. Fair point, having not watched women's football before, I was just using the comparison to underline the relative poor quality of the football on offer, I was expecting better tbh. I suspect a good number of the 6.1m BBC viewers, were men like me who thought they would give it a watch to see what it was like - be interesting to see how many viewers watch the next game...I won't be choosing too.
  2. Indeed, but the top 100 men do not represent MOST men do they! You could likely pick a team excluding the top 10000 male players and, based on what I saw from the England v Scotland game, neither Women's side would beat them.
  3. Nop, just thought with all the development of the woman's game over the last few years that the very best England & Scotland can muster would have had more quality than they did. Kelly Holmes, or any other top female athlete would beat most men over their distance, the England/Scotland women's team are nowhere near that level.
  4. I watched the fist half of the England - Scotland game and was disappointed with the quality. Reckon Bath City could comfortably beat England or Scotland women... queue abuse no doubt!
  5. Exactly my understanding too, what a cock up
  6. HaHa, it's a matter of opinion. FACTS are last season he managed to score 10, and that was the first time he had got to double figures in a season. Yes he runs his socks off, his movement is good, but his shooting from anywhere outside the 6 yard box is woeful and when carrying the ball on the run his final pass is often poor too. We simply need a forward with a better strike rate than that if we are going to try and improve again.
  7. Hope Weimann is warming the bench most of the time, for all his running he ain't nowhere near being a "real top striker", never has been or will be.
  8. No it doesn't, rarely in football do managers last the length of their contracts. Agree it promotes stability, but if we were to struggle next season and finish in the bottom 6, LJ will be got rid off. Similarly, if we were to do really well and make the play-offs but not go up and a PL club were to make LJ an offer he would be off.
  9. I don't follow the City Women's side closely but see from OS that Lucy Graham, who I thought was one of their top players, is leaving the club... anybody ITK about that?
  10. Nice to dream, but with Gayle stupidly banned cannot see anything but a comfortable Villa win unfortunately.
  11. From the OS site, not quite the non-PC headline it appeared, but made me chuckle.
  12. Yep saw the best and worst of Gayle today...
  13. Damage limitation for FGR now, they are without doubt the better footballing team but getting nothing from ref.
  14. Nah... Now Mills the FGR left back looks a classy player...
  15. Agree but ref has let Tranmere get away with a lot of rough challenges
  16. Another foul from Tranmere but FGR player reacts and sees red.
  17. Planning to watch this one and hoping FGR do well, be great to see them putting one over the gas next season. Think Tranmere have our Jonny Smith (winger) on loan so be interesting to see wot he is like.

  19. Reputedly Baker is our highest wage earner at £20k and Kalas is paid £23k. Well worth extending our wage cap and offering Kalas £25k, along with a likely 6m fee for Chelsea, worth every penny. Besides we could then offload Baker at least, and possibly Wright too.
  20. Similar aspirations but poorer execution I'd say... Examples 1.8m on a RB who cant defend 1 on 1 against any winger with a bit of pace (Hunt) . 1.5m on a striker virtually never played (Eisa). 1m on a midfield flank player when we have at least 4 better players (Watkins). Very limited chances given to Walsh and Morrell, despite poor form from Pack.

  22. Fair point to an extent. Smith lead Brentford to 9th, 10th & 9th BUT he did that on a shoestring budget whilst playing generally acknowledged entertaining attacking passing football. LJ hasn't had the major bucks to spend compared to some in the championship but he has had way more to spend than Smith ever had at Brentford and achieved about the same.
  23. Spot on...Kalas is worth that.
  24. Can't see Palmer wanting to stay after LJ has mainly used him as a bench warmer. Then take today, best player on the pitch, and he gets subbed off whilst Weimann who had offered nothing (and continued to do so) stay on... LJs biggest failings for me are not finding a way to accommodate giving Palmer and Eliasson more game time, and dicking around with 3/5 at the back when with Kalas & Webster in a back four we looked really solid with the RB position being the only weak link.
  25. Why? For leading us to 11th and now 8th after being in fantastic positions to make the top 6? Time will tell, I simply can't see what he has on his CV for a 'bigger' club to come in for him.
