  1. Tubby it doesn’t count

    I didn’t realise till the highlights show on Saturday that the ball is counted as being int the keepers hands even when released to kick. so how does it work when they take the ball to the edge of the box and kick it from their hands? More often than not they are outside the box when they kick the ball but nearly never see a free kick given against the keeper?
  2. Frank Fielding

    Still an area that we should improve
  3. Eni Aluko / Mark Sampson (Merged)

    I've not read through the thread but it's odd that manager who played her then dropped her was a racist and that she accepted £80k rather than stand up for her principle. How can any manager do 'the job' without ensuring a proportionate number of ethnic origins rather than the proportionate skilled players
  4. Landsdown on Radio Bris

    My opinion probably doesn't count for much as I didn't hear the interview but two points... 1/ there seems to be different interpretations from those who did listen so it maybe wasn't as clear cut as some think 2/ with his knowledge of business and deal making I'd trust SL to get the best possible deal

    sustainability will rely on the fans...disregard them and it doesn't happen
  6. WANTED: Your memory's of playing Nottingham Forest in 1989

    Got to Nottingham mid afternoon, strolled round looking for the hordes of women we'd heard about. Ended up in the big pub on Trent bridge via a couple of other pubs (kicked out of one when one of our group took the European double winners mirror off the wall) got to the ground, packed in, bit of a blur, Mardon scored amazing atmosphere on a par with Bradford in previous round. Left ground walked over Trent bridge, crossed road to avoid glasses thrown from big pub we'd been in earlier, copper grabs me saying 'where do you think you're going?' I tell him going to car and he pushed me away onto the road with bus coming towards me...slept most of the way home. dont get me started about home leg...still pissed from watching Bruno v Tyson at millionaires club till 6:30am
  7. Lansdown backing Johnson / Ignorance? (Merged)

    I too think LJ needs to go, but timing I think is important. we are away to Newcastle then Villa, any 'honeymoon' period a new manager brings might be wasted in two games we are likely not to win, might it not be a prudent move to keep the failing manager in place for 2 games we're expected to lose and have the boost of a new management team straight after? would explain the delays maybe
  8. Saturday

    Amazed we are better odds than Burton still, maybe SL is playing the market to maximise return on his bets. did spot that he was at Sutton on Monday night handing out pies.

  10. Football League launch probe into Matty Taylors transfer

    Too long a thread to trawl through so apologies if someone else posted. as I read things, City bid £300k on Saturday 28th january they are accused of using 'inside knowledge' of the release clause and agent or Taylor could be at fault. well it was in the papers on 24th January...daily mail and hitc http://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2017/01/24/report-sheffield-wednesday-and-wolves-on-alert-as-matty-taylor-h/ see link (that has a date) that surely ends everything

    They played in black
  12. Next England Manager

    Shearer...passion goes a long way
  13. Hillsborough

    Watching it now on Iplayer. I remember listening to it on the radio at the time and then putting on grandstand and watching it unfold live. Scary thing for me is that in 1990 I was caught up in a crush at Trumpton when some idiot started tearing down advertising above the terrace, nothing like Hillsborough but still terrifying. I hated the idea of all-seater stadiums at the time, I loved the terraces, but now I'm a little older and with a football mad son I'm glad he can watch football safely from a seat. What he's never known he'll never miss.
  14. What is, or was our greatest ever "away day"?

    I remember that night too, it was snowing if I recall correctly, my memory was when the equaliser went in I ran down to the fence and my mate jumped on my back pushing me forwards into the (unlocked) gate and we found ourselves on the pitch...got back into the terrace before stewards could catch us...and they didn't bother coming in after us. also remember the Stoke fans above us, and getting hit by a couple of coins, but they were only 1p and 2p so they didn't hit too hard (tight wads)
  15. What is, or was our greatest ever "away day"?

    Will always live in my memory as one of best away trips ever... ...which is strange, cause I was absolutely rat arsed so how I remember anything of that night is a miracle
