    Craziness at Sporting Lisbon

    Complicated this as Sporting basically lost the runners up spot to Benfica when all they had to do was match their result and it cost them £30m. Mate is a huge fan and reckons président ordered attack at training ground and then they lost the Portuguese cup final. Ive worked with this Sporting fan for two years and amazed at the hatred they have got Benfica but Im sure @Olé can add to this from a Benfica perspective.

    Fans travelling to Russia for the World Cup

    Saw every game at just 18 with three mates and we hired a car from keynsham.Stayed on a campsite in Bilbao and got tickets out there. Big City mob there who were unimpressed that two of our mates were Gas and remember the goal v France and riot police coming onto terraces. Press were outrageous in reporting as no issues in Bilbao and were offering money to fans to start trouble and reporting locals living in fear which was bollocks. Madrid was mad and dangerous as was just at end of falklands so very hostile ... hid under cars as being chased by locals and was terrified. We went to Benidorm and travelled back to Madrid for Germany/Spain games. We went out without losing a game ! Spain game was hairy and spat on all night as we were all over stadium and isolated. Scary times but most memorable trip ever and took in loret on way home and made some great mates.

    Right back: Pisano or Wright

    Whilst Wright is limited going forward we certainly were a lot more stable at the back, so Wright for me. Not sure what Pisano offers and if he's at full fitness then that's a massive worry, although why we never signed a right back in January is beyond me.

    Liam Walsh

    All teams need talkers irrespective of standard. Teams need leaders and you can never have too many and if Walsh is like that and makes a difference on the pitch and has a good work ethic he will be fine. It's the billy big bollocks who turn it on 1in 4 then disappear with no effort ala Tomlin who will piss off squad. @Davefevs will confirm this!

    It all kicked off in Bristol (Merged)

    I read the book and found it fascinating as nearly all the games discussed I attended. I also know a number of people mentioned in the book and know that they all are passionate supporters of our club from a pure football perspective. Being involved in the CSF doesn't make you any less a supporter & whilst you might not agree with violence you cannot take the moral high ground as ultimately you can avoid trouble and walk away, whilst others walk to it. It's choices that we all have!!

    Callum O'Dowda

    I thought he was dreadful and personally would have taken him off at ht for Leko. Has pace and is strong but no football brain and was caught on his heels as defender stepped in front of him. Yes he worked hard but has to sometimes as making recovery runs as he has not sensed danger or where ball will be. all about opinions I guess.

    At what level have you played football?

    Played for Paulton in western league prem and was at Bris for 5 years before ending at Stockwood Green with the legend Dave Fevs.

    Diedhiou off?

    The only contribution he made was defending set plays as whilst not a lot of service the basics of ball sticking and work rate just weren't there. If you were a neutral you would have thought Elliott the Millwall sub was the£5m man !
  9. In fairness to LJ once Che Adams went off I thought their goal threat had gone. He brings on the wide men and whilst I personally would have left Brownhill on he was so close to this debate about tactics not being an issue. I know it's what ifs but the margins between tactical genius and clown are so fine. Reid scores the sitter and we win.

    Players' ratings for Brum game?

    No idea what Brownhill did to be rated so badly today. Yes he doesn't get at his man but then he's vital to the way we play and actually game went away from us after he went off. Bryan was mom and wright had a shocking last 30 mins with sloppy passing and needless fouls. Played well but again not ruthless enough and need a striker as Fammy was out on his feet with 25 to go

    Birmingham Tickets (Merged)

    Really poor for Brum away and whilst we all ridicule the Gas claims on support, they did take over 2k to Charlton !!!!

    Eliasson Signs!

    It's a fake as only 100 followers - we will know tomorrow for sure

    Marlon Pack

    I know it was a friendly but mom by a mile for me. Would be one of the first names on sheet for me but am I in the minority as yet again people are saying that he's not for them and always seems to have his critics. Not quick but he can play and wins his headers and were a better team with him in than out.

    So want him to be a success but no where near a starter for me. Great at interacting with fans, so popular but bench at best for me but hope he comes good. Really sloppy tonight with distribution as was Flint.
