  1. 8:20 in . 2 minutes from time, good finish mind.
  2. I meant in as much as smaller, busy more mobile players. Last year Semenyo had a nice little cameo, but maybe Weimann as the furthest forward and KP in behind, possibly with Szmodics and COD running off. I still think that Fam will start, though after yesterday it's clearly not so nailed on.
  3. Sounds like it could be similar to yesterday, maybe with a tweak.
  4. It was a professional foul, or attempt at it, ball knock well past him before he lunges, and his foot was raised. Red for me. Just seen another angle of TM in the first half, could have gone too, got a yellow because of the Refs angle I guess.
  5. He was shit last year, he's finished I heard £4m, my main disappointment was more to do with the fact we could have had him years ago when he was at Southend , for £1m.At £2m it's great business, been crying out for a keeper to dominate the area for a while. Turned out ok ATM
  6. 4 of us going up early Saturday, hope the Catholic club has some new beer on, it's like Phoenix ******* nights in there. Might buy a ticket for the meat raffle this year.
  7. One of the reasons I try not to 'go early' with thoughts on players.... Ashley Williams , OOC , no interested clubs , too old , not match fit. Taylor Moore , was shit here , only played at struggling Bury/Southend , no Championship experience. Tommy Rowe , journeyman , from Doncaster ffs Benik Afobe , been shit for years, Stoke fans say he's shit...... Easy to have doubts about players, but I do try and have a look for myself first. The 4 players above have all been quality this season, but I bet if you offered them to most people before they had signed , a good percentage would have said ..... not good enough.
  8. Leeds are a good side, what I would question is their ability to sustain it when the Coach likes to utilise a small squad. Last year they had a bad spell which cost them, I know most teams do , but I put some of it down to trying to play that high intensity press with the same players week in , week out. Afobe's goals weren't the only thing that he brought to the team. His movement and intelligent running , brought KP into the game more, and gave Weimann more room to play in. I thought Fam did well yesterday, but his movement is poor compared to BA. If Afobe played and didn't score, there is a chance he would have pulled the CB's around enough to make space for others. That isn't in FD game , sadly, and we have to play slightly differently. Sadly, IMO , we are not in the "top striker" market, we can't compete with the money thrown around for those players. I do think we will be looking, but Afobe was down the list a way, apparently , and it took a while to get him. January is a difficult window so I think it will have to be a bit of a left field signing, or taking a chance on another like Afobe, poor recent record but underlying quality. We shall see, in the meantime I hope we can see Semenyo shine. Weird that I would feel more optimistic if we had those fixture reversed, home form still a concern, not just results (M'boro and Swansea are tough) but we don't tend to create enough at home going back a year or more. Off to Preston next week ,with our pet PNE fan driving, tough game but I think we can get something. If we do and beat Reading I might have to go to Luton (a place I hate), good results in those 3 and the last 2 look winnable . All ifs and buts , but that list does look more favourable . Agree , November will show us where we stand. If we can be top 6 , with players hopefully coming back , I'd be optimistic for the season ...... fingers crossed the injury Gods move on to someone else.
  9. It really is amazing/annoying/disappointing so many words can be used. Korey is a miss, but you kind of forget him as he hasn't had a run of games for so long. When we lost DaSilva it was really bad luck and timing, Rowe has done a brilliant job considering. Nagy's injury was disappointing , but as he'd not had time to really cement his place I think everyone was looking forward to HNM. Plus it was short term apparently. I think Wright was next , but he would be seen as back up, so we could cope with Baker,Kalas and TM. Kalas was a massive blow , what has happened is a resurgent Nathan Baker, back to the Baker we first signed.Add to that Taylor Moore has been better than anyone could have hoped. Afobe's injury is up there with Kalas as the biggest blow. It took so long to get a striker in, he must have been a little way down the list but it looked like we had got very lucky. His movement not only showed what is missing from Fam's game, but brought out the best in KP and Weimann with his movement. Not even mentioned Janneh. That's half a team, more when you add Maenpaa to the mix. Keeper,2 CB's , LB, 2 CMF and striker. To be where we are is nothing short of brilliant, to stay in the hunt will be more so. I'm not sure if we will replace Afobe in Jan, can't see there being an OOC worth a punt. I don't see Johnson putting Semenyo in, it would be a big gamble all round, though it might help with the movement and give KP a better target/runner. Fam was a big part of tremendous away form last year, so he does deserve credit and patience. We do need to find a way to play at home, I hope AS is part of that, a siege mentality wouldn't hurt, strength through adversity etc. Today is tough, it could also be a massive step forward. I think we are due a little more luck and 3 points would be a nice start. Looking through a half full glass, Wright is in training , Nagy is close enough to be being assessed for today so perhaps we can muddle through while players return to fitness. Gonna be hard mind.
  10. While I take your point, the presenter does impact on the program.Previous to Colin Murray I couldn't stand the highlights show, may have occasionally dipped in for our goals but would happily watch them online and ignore the program . With Lineker and guests the show is entertaining and he does run it well. Is he worth the money? Is anyone? Then the question, did he give himself that money? No, of course not and he would have been mad to turn it down. That he has taken a cut should be applauded, but, the BBC will just waste it somewhere else.
  11. If I drive, Coopers for one. if I’m meeting mates, Masonic unless it’s an early one then ‘Spoons. Might pop in somewhere on the way down North st. but usually end up in the Coopers. Used the fan park previously but not lately.
  12. Proof , if proof were needed, that you categorically cannot polish a turd !
  13. Plymouth do tend to travel well. and they're a (slightly) nicer club.
  14. TBF , its' a long way, and they're shit.
