  1. When Signed from the Methane Mob (the gas) he found the step up huge, his mind and his feet were far to slow and unfrtunately due to his injuries it has taken him longer to get up to speed. Now that he has and if he remains injury free along with a run of games I think we will see the true goalscoring Matty Taylor. (hope so) Like others have said, worth his place because he is the "Ultimat Pest".
  2. Has he put on a bit of weight ? not that mobile ,unable to keep up with their winger, bad clearance for another of their goals..
  3. It's my feeling that :- in Marketing, Sales and Football wheeling and dealing reminds me of the old addage.......... SWSWSW......... NEXT Some WILL, Some WON'T, So WHAT, NEXT ... As long as you buy and Sell and make a profit if they don't fit in then Selling is the best policy.
  4. So they have a " Mechelen Star " ...Engval ?
  5. Great suggestion I TOTALLY AGREE with the above or maybe Watson at Watford, good at this level and can score goals (except don't let him take a Pen !! ... remember when he missed against us for Palace I think) A CM who can score.
  6. Perhaps he's gone "off Pissed" or maybe he has a puncture ?
  7. I think we could have done with SADIO MANE But he didn't get off the bench ! ! ? I think he was sat watching the match in the front row in the Lansdown Block W12 ... I saw someone get a selfie on the steps at HT ... has anyone seen this .. I might be mistaken but the likeness was there.

    I agree with most of the previous comments that the ref was against us, but I have to blame LJ for his Team selection as I think we played virtually with 10 men all game as both Eliasson and Leco were nowhere men most of the time. IMO These two are good players but they should not start games but be brought on later when we are winning so they can gain experience in a winning position, and get up to speed, the same mistake was made with O'Dowda and Brownhill last year who now with experience of Championship football are up to scratch. (Chicken & Egg accepted) O'Dowda should have started. Re previous comments on midfield, I think we are in DIRE NEED of a scoring CM, both KS & MP should have made their GK make a save but their strikes were painfully off target.
  9. And me ... worth a Punt IMO..
  10. BBC report today Cyrus Christie [Derby - Middlesbrough] .................. Derby have reportedly been trailing Flint so this could be good insurance if we get a high offer from them and he wants to go.. I'M NOT IN THE KNOW THOUGH
  11. Rugby ? I still think you would be able to squeeze it in ... I played on the Mem when it was a proper pitch and looking at the sag pitch size it is smaller than AG !! A typical length is 100m for the field of play plus the depth of the ingoal areas at both ends of the field, say10m each - total 120m. The width is typically 70m so the area = 120m x 70m = 8400 sq m. A full size pitch (22m ingoal) would be 144m x 70m = 10080 sq m. Rugby Field - dimensions : layout : remember, be confident www.rugbyhow.com/rugby-field.html
  12. I suppose BS could shorten the pitch to move the Atyeo towards the South stand.. Look at this web site to see the rules & regs regarding Pitch Sizes .. Interestingly our pitch is bigger than several Prem Clubs .. http://www.football-stadiums.co.uk/articles/are-all-football-pitches-the-same-size/ Ashton Gate Bristol City 105 68 7,140 Are All Football Pitches The Same Size? We’ve all been there. Watching our team in an away game on a Saturday afternoon and aware of the fact that the players seem to be absolutely knackered. We’ve probably called them lazy and used some other choice language to make our feelings about them known. But did you know that not all pitches are the same size? It could be that these players who think are being lazy are actually just not used to having to cover so much ground because the playing surface they’re on now is significantly different in its dimensions from the one in the team’s home ground. Here we’ll explain how it is that pitches can be so different and what, if any, difference it makes to the match you’re watching. Football Pitch Dimension Rules Here’s a really interesting quirk of the game. Football pitches not only don’t have to be the same size but, in fact, can cary wildly from each other because the rules state minimum and maximum widths and lengths rather than specific measurements that must be adhered to. When it comes to the length of a pitch it must be between a minimum of 100 yards, or 90 metres, and a maximum of 130 yards, or 120 metres. The width is similarly vague in its specifications. A pitch can be a minimum of 50 yards, or 45 metres, in width and a maximum of 100 yards, or 90 metres. Of course one of the other things about a football pitch is that it must maintain its aspect ratio, so to speak, meaning that you’ll never see a pitch that is 90 metres by 90 metres. This may fit in with the minimum and maximum sizes but it wouldn’t keep the ratio correct so it wouldn’t be allowed. There is also a different size range depending on the age group the pitch is being used by. Under 8s, for example, can play on a pitch ranging from 27.45 metres to 45.75 metres in length and from 18.30 metres to 27.45 metres in width. The Under 13 - Under14 age group, meanwhile have a range of 72.80 metres to 91 metres in length and 45.50 metres to 56 metres in width. Whilst there is no exact specification of dimensions that pitches have to adhere to, there is a suggested pitch size for clubs to work with. For senior teams that is 64.01 metres in width by a length of 100.58 metres. Just for added confusion, FIFA have set different minimum and maximum dimensions for international competitions. These are a minimum of 64 metres to a maximum of 75 metres in width alongside a minimum of 100 metres to a maximum of 110 metres in length. The Premier League is not against adding further complications into the mix, either. In 2012 they attempted to standardise the pitch dimensions for teams in their division by adding rule K21 to their manifesto. It declared that “Unless otherwise permitted by the board, in league matches the length of the pitch shall be 105 metres and its breadth 68 metres”. All fine and dandy, but rule K22 then stated that clubs would be exempt from rule K21 “if it is impossible to comply with rule K21 due to the nature of the construction of the ground”. Clear as muck, as they say.
  13. My sentiments entirely.. always gave his all, I enjoyed his forays up the wing.. Good Luck Litts....
