  1. Basket case club. 4 points off auto spot. In top 6. Game in hand. About quarter way through season Did they expect to be 10 points clear at this stage?
  2. As the guy who started this thread I wonder what the management at BCFC will think if he’s been asked to play the international and still struggling with injury? Or is it only match sharpness ? I think the player himself would have a say but an end of the day BCFC pay his wages and if his return to the fray was delayed due to international football needs , we suffer. Perhaps we might hear more this week as they return
  3. Seems like he's off over the International break to represent his homeland, Hungry, or at least 'called' up. Having been crocked for a few weeks, and being totally selfish, I wish the club could say 'NO' he has not been fit and is not match fit? I would rather he was here getting himself up to speed for Stoke away and the Swans at home... At least you hope the Hungarians would not 'push' an unfit player into the fray ? And ones a friendly game the other a qualifier
  4. Our midfield options Now ! Rowe; Brownhill; Nagy & Massengo. Nagy already been crooked once, and with bookings injuries and so on.....we r again light. Korey some time in 2020 perhaps ??? If all stayed injury free and fit......no problems, but that will not happen
  5. Interesting. Bentley was also rather good yesterday and I can see why we paid a lot of money for him.
  6. I think perhaps we got out of jail a bit today and if I was a Boro fan I may have been disappointed with only 1 point, thought they were in general far more threatening in final third than us and in Fletcher (No.11) and Assom'go (whatever he's called) could clearly see why we 'sniffed ' around him pre season (if media reports true) That said we also created chances and contributed fully to a good game, but we are certainly light at the back. Once we have Williams up to speed and the return of Kalas and Nagy think we will be a real force and will make an impact this season (let alone JD later in season). Seems crazy to be pleased for a break to get some wounded back so early in season
  7. What do you reckon. I recall from the murky past there are different types of hamstring strains. I am guessing it will be properly looked at very early this week, Bank Holiday or not, at the hospital they use Best case scenario and worst? 4 weeks out ? Wishing for 3 days but.........
  8. Here we go. FD abuse ? Never seen abuse, in fact a popular player. As a human I like the bloke as I have said before here, he’s liked because he beats the badge, bares his teeth and gives his best. Sadly the difference being Afobe and FD is chalk & cheese, night and day, and all that. That’s why BCFC Bought Afobe in. FD would not get us any higher Last season I reckon FD had a cracking storming match against WBA at home. the rest. Some ok, others poor. Afobe will not play every match. When FD plays he will have the crowd behind him and the support. Afobe has shown the difference in quality, touch, hold up, vision.
  9. I suspect because he is decent going forward, but not as good defensively. He is still a championship defender and has been for many a year. When Pereira either gets match fit or up to speed with championship football he will have a battle for that spot. It’s how it should be. I have not really seen enough of Pereira and I do not think any of us have , to see how the RB spot will pan out.
  10. I respect your thoughts & opinions as you have seen him perform no doubt. I heard exactly the same thing reference Bentley from a Bees fan who was pleased to see the back of him, yet for us, to date, he has been exceptionaly decent . Sometimes a new start and fresh beginning can do the world of good. I recall him being very good few years back. We shall see. point is our centre backs are not going to perform week in and out and we simply need cover. Best option who is free it appears
  11. Tomlin has been an interesting watch over the waters. I will remember that player on the loan and how he was, not the player after he signed. Well documented about his 'demons' and hope he has got over them and can look the player he should be. let's be fair, we all like to see good players in the Championship (as long as he's not good against us). If Warnock cannot get him to perform then he will be back in League One. Perhaps he will get a run in the Cardiff side.
  12. we have him for 3 years PLUS an option 4th. He will be here for a few years unless we flog him for 40M. Every player has a price. He has got a long season in the Championship ahead of him. lets wait and see how he pans out.

    Well we all see things differently. Thought they were better than us first half and the black lad (Eze I think who resembles the Liverpool forward) was really mobile and liked his game. It made me laugh (and him) when a chorus boomed out ' your only a sh1te Casey Palmer' The was good humour !! I thought Hugill would have caused us problems but it shows what a good game Bakes and kalus had. LJ said bakes was back to his best, and he was. At end we deserved the points. QPR. Mid table. Good manager. We can only get better
  14. over the course of the season we will have knocks, suspensions and so on. All midfielders will get chances and opportunities to get match time. I was looking forward to seeing him play and when he came on it was and blindingly obvious he will be a serious talent, but as other posters have said, he needs to be coached up to championship speed. Palmer, Brownhill, Nagy, Massengo, Walsh, they will all get serious match time Have i missed anyone
  15. Reckon it might have been Hugill rather than Moore. Either way with Mr Ofobe I think we have done rather well. Fancy him to score a few for us. It will be an interesting watch tomorrow if Hugill plays for them how he fares. I really liked Pisano but cannot see him coming back as an out of contract, and really needs to be left footer more than right, always seem lopsided when put players on wrong side. ELLIASON is so much better on the left, but spends most of his time RHS. Cutting in. Hindsight is such a great thing.
