  1. The return of Eros

    You don't change a formation that's getting you results. Put your best player in each position which for me is: Pisano, Wright, Baker, Bryan. With the busy schedule this can be moved around and having someone like Flint on the bench is a great position to be in. Even more so when we need a goal at the end of a game, stick him up top as target man.
  2. Saturday betting thread - who's losing with me?

    QPR Fleetwood Oxford Luton 12/1 Acca, thank me later

    It wouldn't annoy me as much if I didn't hear the commentator for the Bradford v Gas game recently on sky refer to them as 'Bristol' too. Now then maybe it annoys me more than it should...
  4. The new goalkeeper

    Weren't we all?
  5. The new goalkeeper

    I always get a bit nervy about Frankie. Don't get me wrong his shot stopping is immense and we would certainly have a lower points tally thus far if not for him. There's just something about him that makes me nervous, lack of composure maybe? He certainly hasn't done anything wrong to warrant losing his place yet but it's good to know we have what looks like a more than able back-up should he be called upon. Two very professional 'keepers who i'm glad are at the Club.
  6. Boom boom boom........

    Apologies in advance for this one....... 'We've got Bobby Reid We've got Bobby ReidWhen the road looks rough aheadAnd you're miles and milesFrom your nice warm bedYou just remember what your old pal saidBoy, we've got Bobby reidYeah, we've got Bobby Reid' To the tune of you've got a friend in me in case anyone was wondering
  7. RM Poll

    Yeah it is pretty much as per usual and I can't see Johnson chopping and changing too much. I was just making the point that I would move Leko to RM and drop Brownhill in for Smith really in an ideal world and when Leko has trained with the squad etc.
  8. RM Poll

    Fielding Pisano Wright Baker Bryan Smith Pack Brownhill Reid Paterson Diedhiou How I think it will be, when Leko has settled in, put him at RM and push Brownhill into Smith's position.
  9. Concourse seating (lack of)

    We go with my elderly grandfather who turned 90 in April and still goes to every home game. Obviously being less mobile these days we make sure we book a table in the Sports Bar and Grill (Pizzeria) for every game. This obviously means that he has a comfortable seat, table service for food and drink and what is frankly a far more pleasant atmosphere than the concourses all whilst having a good old time socialising with us lot before the game. Could this be a potential avenue for you to explore Rich? Obviously this doesn't address the issue that you were referring to although it seems as though that issue is far (if ever) from being resolved. Just a thought.
  10. I'll take 4th bottom now

    There are 13 other teams in the league who have had worse starts than us. I can't believe its panic stations for some after 4 games! In 46 games we ain't gonna play well every week (even Brighton lost at home to us last season ) At least in the games we've played badly in so far we've picked up points. Or maybe I'm just a glass half full kinda guy.
  11. I refuse to believe that Flint would want anything but the best for this club who he has done outstandingly for. I think we can all agree that he is leaving at some point during the window and to be fair, not being potentially cup-tied for his new side is IMO a fairly sensible and logical argument and one that doesn't give another club a bargaining chip for a lower price. It's disappointing that this whole saga has been so publicly dragged about. I don't think we have handled it superbly from our side either, IMO there isn't any need to put in the public domain an article that suggests that Flint refused to play, whether it's true or not. He has always given 100% for this club and has played almost every minute of every game over the past few seasons. I would hope he would always get a great reception from our fans wherever he eventually ends up.
  12. LJ - Well Done

    Having that winning mentality is a huge thing. I think the way pre-season has been handled and the build up to the start of the season has been great. Yes some of the sides we have played have not been a great challenge, but what pre-season gave us was a step up in class game by game whilst we kept winning. I'd much rather that and have that confidence you get from winning games and scoring goals than playing 'bigger' sides and getting thumped and demoralised. I think yesterday we could see the confidence that pre-season has instilled in the squad...that and Barnsley were useless.
  13. Its getting harder to believe our manager

    He's not going to say anything that couple possibly jeapordise any transfers is he? The Tomlin sale and Baker buy are obviously within the best interests of the club. Surely most would agree with that. Whatever has happened in between i wouldn't expect our manager to air our dirty laundry in public regardless.
  14. New home kit (Merged)

    Really nice, also I'm glad we've gone back to the traditional colours on the badge rather than the all red on last seasons shirt.
  15. Home Friendly

    FC Twente it is then.
