  1. I’m going to guess at the Forest of Dean. Do I win £5?
  2. It’s one from three. I’ve seen a lot of negativity in the last week, but this is still totally within our gift. Let’s look at it: Boro -1 point up, 3 games left. Forest (A), Reading (H), Rotherham (A). Pessimist says 3 wins - however that would be six on the bounce. Likelihood is 6 points tops, possibly even 4. Two teams scrapping and a Forest team who are better home than away and won’t throw the towel in FLDC - 2 points behind, 4 games left. QPR (H), us (A), Swansea (A), WBA (H). They’ll beat QPR, but I think that Swansea will do them. WBA feels like a point. So, beat us - it’s 7. Lose - it’s 4. All that being said, I think it’s 7 points from 4 games for the playoffs. I’m 100% that’s doable . So, **** it, let’s do this. In our hands. It’s go time.
  3. True. Now they’re “so far away” from the premier league days that they must seem like a fairytale, like “Romeo and Juliet”, however that’s the “Walk of Life” for you...
  4. I think the Pack/Walsh comparison is why people are split on how well LW played (or otherwise), and it was huge in the fact we were poor second half. Fact is, both Pack and Walsh like to get the ball deep and look for the runners - in old money, playmaking. Although LW did one run in behind first half by the Dolman, when he got there he wasn’t the player to use it in the corner position. Neither are particularly comfortable breaking the lines. So, with the two of them CM, we have two “providers” and one less “receiver” (Koreys style of winning and laying off is a different dynamic and reduces space for the opposition, opening space for the rest of the team in a different way). This means that the opposition have less runners to worry about and can back off and cover all options, meaning we end up in cul-de-sacs of hopeful crosses from Hunt/Dasilva as opposed to looking for breaking runners. Also forced Josh to be more peripheral. In short, because we had the two of them essentially wanting to do the same job, it meant that made their job more difficult as it reduced the options either would normally have to play the ball to. Like the player - but although it was CM for CM, it was the wrong change.
  5. The answer is yes - was a very soft foul and needless to give away. Not sure if it’s BW being a “warrior” or just a bit of bad play - erring towards the latter. As for the FK itself, good routine and well worked, but for me, we were a touch too slow to react to both the second ball and the cross
  6. Yes. - No parachutes - Not Big wage payers - Not big fee payers - Not many big fees not in starting XI (I don’t class £1m as big at this level before the Taylor Moore argument starts) - No real Bosmans - 3 loans - however only one of those I expect to be on a significant wedge I think on those factors we’d be expected to be 15th-18th ish
  7. Meh. I think we are over achieving based on budget, club size, lack of parachutes etc but not sure that chart is the one that can give a definitive. As already noted, it doesn’t consider loans (and loan fees). It doesn’t consider costly players who aren’t in the first 11. It doesn’t consider that someone could have cost a lot 5 years ago. Most importantly, it doesn’t consider wages - in the case of Bosmans it’s no fee but a bigger wage so the cost ends up being (broadly) similar (or a touch less) over the course of a contract. On that subject, it also doesn’t consider/know how long a fee is paid over. Basically, it’s a nice chart but is so flawed it’s not worth the paper it’s written on
  8. That’s not an injury thing again but a deliberate choice - Marinovic has been warming Max up
  9. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Pulis Theres no rule, but the Pulis’s seem to have believed there was. Young Anthony signed for Dads teams four times, barely playing a game. It’s posdible Dad employed him under slightly false pretences Not like TP to do something dodgy...
  10. In all fairness... Barcelona vs Klopps Liverpool Ajax - the best young side in Europe vs Spurs ****ing hell. That’s going to be good
  11. Just in case... Championship play off dates are confirmed as: Game A: Saturday May 11th 12:15/ Tuesday May 14th 19:45 Game B: Saturday May 11th 17:15/ Weds May 15th 19:45 Final: Monday May 27th 15:00 Not decided which game (3rd v 6th, 4th v 5th) is game A or B as yet
  12. Kind of on topic, I recall McCammon suing Gillingham (and winning) for racism. If he was here at the same time as Sankofa (memory hazy there), it doesn’t strike me that he’d be the kind of man to ignore a perceived or actual racist gesture. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/uk/2012/jul/30/black-footballer-gillingham-racism-mark-mccammon
  13. Very, very marginal....
  14. Confused Major? They’re going up to the conference (or division 5 as I believe some call it), which is where Yeovil are going down to
  15. They were saying on RB that we’ve had him twice before this season - away at Leeds where I think Josh got a questionable red, and home v Rotherham where he was on our side. I think he’s just an unapologetic homer/bigger club ref in each game.
