  1. Can’t think of anything off the top of my head that I’d want overturned but quite some time back Tony Thorpe was awarded a penalty for us at home. All players and everyone in the ground , including Thorpe were baffled. Fans were turning to each other to ask what was going. I’d love to replay it to the ref and ask him to clarify what he thought he saw that nobody else did.
  2. I’ve just read the thread about Trolls on OTIB and have just read this thread. I’m guessing that the OP on the Trolls thread may have been including this thread in his/her point. Some of the comments on this thread are simply staggering and embarrassing for the usual good nature of OTIB.
  3. I don't think they're internet trolls in the classic sense of internet troll but more just socially inept and heroes behind a screen. As Major stated it's symptomatic of modern day society. I'm probably old enough to consider, "would I say that to that person's face" before I reply to some comments. I commented on it about a month ago, in that the level of rudeness on here has reached a new high. As for a clique, there are one or two posters on here that seem to reference each other on a regular basis with "in" jokes that nobody else probably understands. It's not rare to see the same beh
  4. Seriously? We are very close to automatic promotion and the manager of the last four + seasons should be sacked? That sounds crazy. Would you prefer mid table or relegation zone but entertaining football? I completely agree that the football at AG over Johnson’s reign has been dire. Over last 25 years I’ve had a few seasons without season tickets. All those seasons were while Johnson junior and Johnson senior were managers. I admit I’m not a diehard but I’ve been there renewing my season ticket when times were tough. Ultimately I want to be entertained for my money. It’s not entertainment
  5. Seem to recall Bobby Zamora when playing for Brighton. Every time he got the ball I felt my butt clench. He didn't get an ovation due to Rovers connections but he was bloody good.
  6. Agreed. Lua-Lua and as previously mentioned Leon Brittan. Both were outstanding and received a standing ovation. I'm not sure whether all clubs show their respect with the ovation but I do like it when the AG faithful display their appreciation in this way. What's nice about those two is they were not big name players.
  7. Yeah it's seriously crazy. Bell-ends and meat-heads spring to mind. The day society starts collectively behaving this way when things happen that you don't like or agree with will be the day society is in serious trouble. I cannot even start to understand what, if anything goes on in the minds of these idiots.
  8. What's Nikki Wells preferred position?
  9. If the diagnosis was good and you can afford it then try a second physio. Not knee but I had a really poor diagnosis and subsequent ridiculous physio for a back injury. My pain threshold is pretty high but my physio insisted that I could do the exercises provided. I had breakdown after breakdown. What is right for one patient is not right for another. Physio activities can be painful but swelling after non-contact training sounds like too much too soon. I'm in agreement with Davefevs about full diagnosis.
  10. Taylor is probably a bit of a marmite player. For me he comes on and looks busy, works hard but when you look beyond the running around he simply isn’t that good IMHO.
  11. FFS! I like Taylor’s running and energy but his first touch is amongst the worst I’ve seen at AG for years. He’s never once looked like being championship standard. It’s not as if he’s nineteen and might come good.
  12. Bas Savage must be right up there. It's like somebody grabbed him off the street and said, "can you kick a ball?". Diony was awful. Really hard to get your head around how he was ever regarded as a footballer but he'd done well in French leagues. I guess his confidence was shot to pieces. Shame really. Steve Jones and Steve Torpey were pretty bad but both looked like Pele when compared to Bas Savage. Jones went on to become a City hero. I recall his pearly white teeth sparkling through his tan bed face. I remember after being out of favour at AG that he came on and scored. His jubilance a
  13. SOD just needed more time. TBH I think LJ’s tactics are on a par for boredom. Based on my age and on entertainment value best and worst Danny Wilson (Best) LJ (worst)
  14. Exactly. He was frustrating as **** some days but when he turned it on you felt like you were entertained. At present the club lack players that can turn on those flashes of excitement. There's just no spontaneity and as a result it's predictably dull. In the future will just feed the stats into a piece of AI. The AI will pick the team every week based on our and the opposition stats. The AI will probably do the after game interview. I'm not sure we're too far from that.
