    Well Well Well

    Yes he could (where have you been?)

    Oh Dear

    It's taken a while but what goes around.... Luke Freeman was dismissed for a high - but not reckless - foot in a game that was even steven but we went on to lose. That decision was harsh, perhaps todays was too but basically f u ck em (my default position vis-a-vis brentford)

    Only happy when we’re losing!

    I love the interweb. In particular, how it allows sanctimonious ****s to unintentially reveal themselves as sanctimonious ****s. Keep posting fella!

    Tony Fitzpatrick has an autobiography....

    Think he moved Into Peter Cormack's house If memory serves.

    You misunderstand - it's not him I'm worried about, it's how the other 10 in front of him usually perform in this fixture! I fully expect him to have plenty to do, probably too much.

    Not a place I'd want to be making my league debut. Good luck kid.

    Is anyone else fed up with the lack of Saturday games?

    Apparently, it's all part of being a "premiership team in training"

    Thanks for the heads up. He was a fine writer. Proper old school journalist. I always enjoyed his pieces too, no matter what he was writing about. There is a tenuous City link - he wrote Joe Jordan's "auto"biography.
  10. I agree with this about Kelly - if he's any sort of player then last night will be the kick up the backside he needs. It's all well and good being composed on the ball but you cannot be casual or make poor decisions. The silver lining to his below par performance is that it came in a game we were likely to lose anyway. If it had happened at home and cost us the only goal of the game the repercussions are obviously that much greater. We'll see how the lad responds - this is when you find out what's between a player's ears, it will be interesting to watch. As for Hunt, I fear he's just a shite defender and we still haven't solved this position.
  11. A right footed Joe Bryan then, Bob! Bailey Wright needs to get fit quick. Which doesn't say a lot for Pisano or our recruitment for this position since allowing Luke Ayling to leave. I know Johnson is an idealist and so, in the modern way, wants full backs to play as auxiliary wingers but - for me - I'll go with defensive solidity first and foremost. Plus - playing Wright at full back hardly affected the team's attacking form that much pre-Xmas last season. I don't know much about him but - simply on the basis WBA wanted to sign him - Tom James at Yeovil is surely worth a look?

    He is if it means taking off Hunt!

    No standout man of the match today so...

    Would not surprise me if he was gone next summer. Hopefully he wouldn't jump at he first sign of interest and just maybe decide that a season or two more as a guaranteed starter here is a better option than doubling his wages over night.
