  1. I’m afraid the Torquay game is off as they share facilities with Arsenal - https://www.borehamwoodfootballclub.co.uk/uncategorized/urgent-club-statement/
  2. Spot on SX, I’ve been saying this for ages. We playing the majority of our passing football in our own half and put ourselves under pressure. The knock on effect is midfield come deeper to try link up the play, the opposition know this and just squeeze us and wait for the mistake. I assume Johnson can see what is happening but he doesn’t seem to be able to stop it happening. Let’s be honest we didn’t lay a glove on WBA today same at Leeds. Poor Wells must think what he has signed up to, he was running around today just trying to get into the game. I know fans keep saying we’re near the playoffs and have every, chance, but when the chips our down we’re miles off the pace. I would love to share the optimism of those fans but on what I have seen this season we’ll do well to finish in the top 10. Somehow Johnson needs to finds the team that attacked teams and made them worry about us, we’re nowhere near that now.
  3. I agree with much that has been said here. Two years ago we were swashbuckling, so exciting to watch, now we are so dull. Lee clearly felt we couldn’t maintain that tempo throughout that season (17/18) and we all know how we fell off the pace. But now the pendulum has swung so far the other way it’s so boring. I appreciate we’ve had a few injuries but the philosophy seems to be not too lose and as a result we are narrow and we pass it around the back with little intent. To play at home against 10 men for nearly 30 minutes and not have a shot on goal speaks volumes to me. Come on Lee let’s have a bit of the football from the 17/18 season I know we can’t play like that week in week about but it’s nice to have a go sometimes and make their keeper have something to do. Finally, how Elliason doesn’t start ahead of COD baffles me.
  4. Palmer did struggle today but I feel that is mainly down to the midfield being so ineffective. My main concern is we don’t transition the ball well through midfield. How many times today did we pass the ball around the back four only to go long into the channels as we couldn’t create anything in midfield. In my mind this has been the problem for a while it was more noticeable when Pack was playing as he would try and come back to get the ball moving through the midfield. Maybe we’re missing the likes of Nagy or Smith to break it up and be a bit more combative in midfield. Whatever we need to sort it as teams just sit back and wait to catch us on the break. Maybe I’m reading all wrong but I would love to know what are plan was today as we didn’t seem to have an answer to the way Wigan played against us.
  5. Ref was a complete clown let too much go in the first half then booked Pack for a foul which was nothing more than a free kick. I didn’t see much wrong with our disallowed header and then a strange decision towards the end which appeared to be offside but the linesman wasn’t even flagging. I appreciate referring isn’t easy but some of the officials just make it hard for themselves.
  6. I thought Swipe Station was introduced at the ground so you could pre-order and pay for drinks at the same time. I'm not sure if it is still working. They did an announce it when it was first introduced - https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/ashton-gate-trials-new-click-collect-beer-service/ Seems like a good idea - if it works as suggested.
  7. Totally agree @Nibor he didn’t attack the ball enough when we had Stoke under the kosh in the second half. For me he just doesn’t show the strikers instinct of predicting where the ball will be. I hope Fammy proves me wrong but I think he is a long way off a 20 plus goals a season striker.
  8. Totally agree. If we lose the likes of Reid Flint and Pack and continue to recruit as we have done over the last few transfer windows we are really going to struggle. To be fair I thought we would struggle this season so hopefully I’m wrong but it just feels like we are on the slide.
