  1. Could Tommy Rowe turn out to be our best signing of the summer in light of JD's injury? Could it present an opportunity for COD to establish himself in the first team and make left back his new, permanent position Whilst i have liked JD going forward i have always felt he was light in defensive awareness and strength Might just turn out to be a blessing in disguise
  2. So we didn't get the fox on the box we craved, and that one position was what we all really wanted. How about getting Sammy playing as the new Bobby, unlocking defences and scoring the goals
  3. If we had played Palace away would we have played any better? No matter how you dress it up our home form has been shocking for far too long If we are serious about this being a BOLD window then doubling our goals scored at home is essential I'm hoping for a Mark Ashton miracle in the next few days to beef up our offensive game Time please for at least one recruit to get us all up and out of our seats. What we all want to see is exciting football at home. 'lets be 'aving you'
  4. According to a die hard Brentford fan who happens to be a good pal. our new goalie is 'a brilliant shot stopper but, just like Dracula, afraid of crosses' "he has a mistake in him most games, especially corner kicks,". sounds very like Frankie to me, although he has age and size on his side and crucially has terrific distribution, very unlike Frankie!!
  5. He’s gone to Barrow Gurney for to see his cousin Ernie
  6. Bobby Reid's transformation from lightweight midfielder into lightening striker was a wondrous transformation. Clive Whitehead becoming a fullback added years to his career, many years ago. So who would benefit from a positional switch in our current squad? If he stays could we please try O'Dowda in the middle of the park, where he has played well for Ireland? He drifts too much when on the wing Would Webster be even better on the right side of defence if we can find a left sided defender to partner with him, who is less accident prone than Baker? Who would you move if you had the choice?
  7. the 'Toblerone Boot' an inability to trap a ball or predict which of 3 directions the attempt to trap the ball will go. AKA the Devon White or the Gus Caesar
  8. ps forgot Vyner, put in team if kalas can't come back
  9. here are some in's and outs for you to ponder the team IN, O'leary, Taylor Moore, Kalas, Webster, O'Dowda at full back Adelukan, Bakinson, Brownhill, Jonny Smith Eisa, Semenyo SUBS BENCH Some Quicksilver new 10m bloke, Janneh, Kelly, Weimann, Pack, Djiedhou, Wright, Eliason, Sam Pearson, Lemmonheigh-Evans, Patterson OUT Fielding, Pisano, da Silva, Baker, Taylor, Walsh, Morrell, Watkins, Hunt, Maeenpa, Palmer, Korey Smith
  10. i think O'Dowda has not been given the ideal position on the pitch. no evidence of a true wingers instinct but there is a gritty player in there. play him at left back or central midfield but not right wing
  11. Way back in 1967 i saw 6 goals in the first half of my very first football match. 3-3 was the final score and Hull City were the visitors at Ashton Gate. Terry Bush was outstanding A certain Mr Ken Wagstaff was their mercurial No10; a quicksilver player with a tremendous eye for goal. What price him in todays market? Many games since, including our last watermark 1 nil defeat at Wembley (when Jamie McCombe fell ill on the morning of the match and Bradley Orr broke his cheekbone) and here they are again. Hull City are standing in the way of our trip into the Premier league. Will it be our year at last? Just like SL i am not getting any younger and hope to see BCFC playing top level football in front of 35,000 fans every home game. We can sustain a top flight team in the west country, develop our stadium further, and set out to win cups and at last fill a trophy cabinet Granted we need some luck this weekend but lets give it a right good go COYR
  12. don't fancy him at all as a left or wing back. can't get past his man and no real pace. no physical presence. for a team that needs width desperately i don't think he's our answer granted he's got a good first touch but he doesn't match up to the quality of 'leftie's' we've had at the club over the years
  13. i wuz there and felt very privileged to witness us becoming champions. i never liked Cotterill as a person but his small squad philosophy and his all out attacking mentality meant that we were way ahead of all our competitors that year. to not invest in a 100 point team the next season was madness by the board. one extra top quality striker and we could have gone up again. yes we shipped goals but we were powder puff up front once we got into the championship ludicrous to take so long tearing it all down and abandon all that he built there will never be a statue outside the ground for Cott's but boy did he give us a season to remember
  14. Be careful about what we wish for. As soon as SL buys promotion he will sell the football club and we will end up in the hands of either a Far East, Middle East or American investor. The only way he can recoup his investment is through selling 'the potential' from being in the premiership. Quite why we have wasted money on one's for the future like engval, moore, eisa etc when that money would have bought a 20 goal a season striker is beyond me. Cotterill was right to keep some of the subs places empty in his reign and to ask for proven quality, not quantity that 'might work one day'
  15. here's a starting team to consider; unlikely perhaps but might get a run in the Carabao with a 3,1,3,2.1 formation next season O'Leary Vyner Webster Kelly Moore Morrell Brownhill Walsh Eisa Eliason Adelukan subs; old boys like Pack, Smith, Diedjhou, Patterson, Wright sold off COD, Baker, Watson sent back; Da Silva ,Kalas, Palmer what team would you pick if you really want to give youth a chance?
