  1. Martin Atkinson Last Week

    Certainly do. One of the major Prem refs from the Ferguson era where amazingly a lot of refereeing "mistakes" all seemed to go in Man U's favour..
  2. The Derby Redemption

    You seem to forget the two outstanding saves by Carson. 2-1 to us at HT would have been a fair reflection.
  3. The Derby Redemption

    Good OP. As a confirmed LJ sceptic, today has certainly started to make me change my mind, the football was great, played at a high tempo with an emphasis on good technique, I thought all 3 subs added something to us when they came on, plus the starting XI produced a lot of 8/10 performances. Reid is just an absolute revelation though and now looks like a natural striker. When you also consider that we have our best RB, Pisano, to come back plus Đurić and O'Neil are currently out injured, we just look to be a much stronger squad all round this year.

    Cup tied, sadly.
  5. When to accept your 5m striker is misfiring?

    Aside from his very first involvement, which was a very heavy first touch followed by an awful hospital pass, he was really excellent, providing an assist for Paterson's free kick and then scoring a superb goal. As an aside I liked Woodrow's contribution, too, he did a lot of hard running, held the ball up very well and scored a good goal. He looked a very useful alternative to our clear first choice front pairing of Diedhiou and Reid..
  6. That "buzz" was back today!

    But it was the best performance from a manager that he has decided that he likes..
  7. Pisano

    If he is fit Tuesday it would be an ideal game to give him a start. I really rate Baker but he would be odds on to get another yellow card in midweek.
  8. Redknapp leaves Brum!! (Merged)

    Watford? None whatsoever, losing 6-0 to a team funded by petrochemical giants is no disgrace. They won't go down, Man City will buy the league, modern football, great, eh?
  9. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Agreed, it is a really good example of a club building a sensible new stadium (£17m, apparently) but it is certainly not evidence of a "massive infrastructure", is it? Baffled as to why Dopey didn't mention MK, now that is a big ground..
  10. Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread

    Usual Post utter ******* drivel. Trying to pretend they are in some way in our league. Have a read of Jack Vittles interview with Dopey today, absolute comedy gold, especially questions like "how delighted are you with the tickets you've sold for Wigan away?" and Dopey's quote that we have got to compete with clubs with "massive infrastructure" like "Rotherham", yes, Rotherham and their 12,000 seat stadium. ******* massive, you complete cock.
  11. Cardiff - Back to 12 Noon on Saturday!

    So how does this work in Wales then? No police cuts? The usual massive overfunding of any public service on that side of the bridge? I don't know the answer to these questions, but seeing as Cardiff is a smaller city (though one always with its' nose first in the trough for public money, trust me) how could they police football, rugby and/or cricket all at the same time? Very odd.
  12. Nathan Baker - Discipline

    I like him and think we have to accept he will sometimes live on the edge. Wolves' manager was moaning in midweek about a number of our early challenges, I wasn't there but I'll wager good money Baker had made a few of them. In his season on loan with us I remember the Birmingham home game well, Toral (who had dived up there to win a dodgy penalty) was clearly targeted from the off by Baker, with a couple of late, off the ball challenges and within 15 minutes he was already throwing his arms about and moaning to the ref. Ten minutes later Baker finally got booked for a real shocker, kicking him high on his back and Toral hobbled off, not to return. We have been an easy touch too often and although I think you certainly need to be streetwise, having watched Millwall attempt (and fail) to beat our centre halves up, no matter whether it is Flint, Wright or Baker, I'm glad we have a bit more steel at the back these days.
  13. When to accept your 5m striker is misfiring?

    Wow. Taylor is actually unmarked on the six yard line and yet manages to still miss, hitting the post with his header with the whole of the goal to aim for. Still, it will probably go down as his "assist".. I really cannot agree with your view on his first touch, it is poor. No argument re Đurić, his availability record must be a worry, it is woeful so far.
  14. Highlights up

    This first point is really bizarre and not the reaction that I saw at all. Pretty soon after scoring his pen Diedhiou is engulfed by at least 3 celebrating team mates. In fact for Flint's goal only Brownhill appears to celebrate with him, but I put this down to the fact that after doing so he goes running off like some maniac, rather than any conspiracy theory. Point 2 it looks to me like Flint simply completely mistimes his jump, I cannot see any opponent near enough to have impeded him, as others have suggested.

    In Jack Vittles' dreams. North Korean match reports would be more impartial than him.
