  1. Sadly, he's shown enough to demonstrate he's the type of entertainer who's brilliant to bring on for the last twenty when 2 up and cruising. Otherwise he's little more than a show pony. I had hoped he'd combine his undoubted vision and talent with effort, determination and commitment. Not one for battle I'm afraid.
  2. For as good as we were Saturday, last night we were awful. Rowett (not for the first time against WeeLee) set his side up to highlight our obvious weakness and we didn't have a Scooby how to counter. Amazing we've scored as many as we have given we do not have a striker at the club. Were Weimann a goalscorer he wouldn't have squandered another chance early doors and the game might have been different, but once he again fluffed his lines it was another flappy handed run-around creating zip in the final third. Sure he runs and runs, but rarely into the box or areas where it matters. He also continues to give the ball away with consistent regularity. If he could score as well as he flaps, claps and points he'd be a top Championship striker. He isn't. And then there's The Bloke from Knowle who recently has shown greater promise in his own box and on or near the halfway line but for whom the final third remains a land of mystery. I can't think of a less mobile striker in the box in all my years. We've had worse, though none more static. He remains focussed on trailing his marker, is clueless to where the ball is, has an utter inability to find or create space and uncannily for all the aerial prowess he shows in his own box, that wholly dissipates where it matters. Rowett played three tall Centre Halfs, WeeLee set up to get balls crossed into the box to Weimann and TBFK, hence was like feeding strawberries to a donkey. We made no effort to play ball quick to feet, or to exploit Millwall's defensive weakness (lack of pace and mobility.) Millwall built a solid line, stood there and barely broke sweat. Poor performances all round from the rest, with even Bentley managing to out-flap Flappy upfront. This month we'll see how determined we are to push to the next level? We either get in two strikers of note or mid Championship is the limit of our ambition.
  3. That's not how IT platforms work. It might have been a website error, it probably wasn't.
  4. They had metal detection with physical searching plus metal and taggant detection (dogs & wand.) Quick, well trained, thorough and absolutely no problem. And EVERYONE was searched.
  5. What, like Man City and numerous other events do? If the risk assessment requires searching then searching it must be for all, not the shambles AG operates.
  6. But for what purpose are SOME fans being asked to open their coats? It clearly isn't to counter any serious threat as the smuggling of pyros has shown that to be utterly worthless? There are folks in front of me each week who pipe up with the best part of a picnic hamper, silver foil wrapped sarnies and cake, flasks of tea et al. Small chance they get checked?
  7. Wrong. I and others have no issue about complying with full and proper security checks (as we last experienced at Man City.) We've every issue with the pointless shambles that's undertaken at AG where only some are requested for checks, those who refuse recieve no sanction, where the provision of detection equipment might as well consist of an Ouija Board and where training for the feckless stewards is somewhere south of minimal. If you attempted to board a plane and were subject to searches whilst the queue opposite were not you'd rightly complain. AG is no different.
  8. All their best crosses came via Cavaliero who was miles their best player and is a quality player. They've useful talent but unlike us they're paying Premier wages and we were certainly not inferior to any of them. Massengo and Nagy the best on the park.
  9. Proof positive that cashing in on him was a cracking bit of business. Seems Fulham have cottoned on that defensively he's a liability so they played him further forward and we snuffed him out easily. Man for man in the mix he's, well, pretty average for the upper end of the Championship and we've replaced well. He was restricted to one long range effort, typical of Bryan easily going wide. Sure he's a nice bloke, came over for a mutual round of applause at he end and good luck to him for the monies he's making at Fulham. Yesterday he realised his team was played off the park.
  10. Finest team performance in many a year, right team set-up, players up for it, excellent commitment and workrate and we've one or two players who really can play. We deserved to win, were better on the day than Fulham, our central mids bossed them out of it and we defended with control and composure. Add in quality goals and what's not to like? We could have done without CoD coming on as that did nearly cost us (I thought it a pen from the away end and two mates who ended up directly in front of it at the end too thought it a pen.) But they didn't deserve it. I thought the ref overall had a decent game save for the end where he should have sent off a couple of their players for continued Infringements, including the two who picked up the overacting Bloke from Knowle at the end. Enjoyable to say the least....
  11. Absolute quality. Ran himself into the ground yesterday and the quality of his run for our second was truly a thing of beauty.
  12. BTRFTG


    Immense ( and I'm not talking about his hair.) He and Nagy in the middle with Brownhill right and Elliasson left must be the starting midfield.
  13. Absolutely no problem my end, though you in various posts and several in this thread were making play of the lack of supposed additional consideration that should be provided supporters such as yourself whilst questioning season ticket holders, hence I'm surprised you were openly selling discounted and free tickets in contravention of Fulham's terms and conditions. I'm also surprised you'd better identify people in those classifications than supporter services, though assume you've conducted due diligence to ensure those deserving of such tickets aren't missing out? Didn't strike me as odd though given your recent post for witnesses, the opening sentence of which confirms you we're 'parked on the pavement', which as a wheelchair user I would have thought you'd best understand the issue that affords those with mobility and visual impairment issues. My wholly innocent question in protection of those with genuine consideration appears to have struck a nerve? Not sure why that is?
  14. Well done for sourcing an over 65 ambulant restricted punter and carer who may now enjoy the game. I'd hate to think those of a deserving cause might miss out, as was clearly your concern.
  15. Firstly, the EFL can't run itself let alone run and manage worldwide rights management. PL have in place over 40 deals generating billions ( thanks largely to the mastery of our own Richard Scudamore.) Money from streaming rights at 40k ft or cruising the high seas, wherever there's football they're cashing in and other than the NFL I can't think of anybody having done that better. Secondly, Amazon's Prime service was pretty much the same as any other 4k streaming I've watched. I've very fast fibre and TV with ultra fast, dedicated processor and the minor glitch is the annoying tendancy for the ball, when passed at pace, becoming translucent. The major issue, like on all platforms, is Hoddle comes across as an absolute ****er....
