Re: Euro 2020 Thread

Could be right Daz, but should be the management to make that call. The mental well being of their players must take precedence. They got the option to continue the game or play at 12.00 today - money talks. Coach and players decided there was no way they could play today since the wouldn't get any...

Re: Freedom now to be July 19th

The only thing that's not happening at the moment really is large scale events, and they've started opening up now at reduced capacities. You can go to the pub, you can watch sport, go to the office and meet up with friends. Actual lockdown was horrible and depressing but I've got no problem with an...

Re: Euro 2020 Thread

1 win will do it for any of the teams outside Italy Realistically, Swiss and Wales have 1 game left to do that, Turkey 2 If all three draw their games then it comes down to goals scored against one another, i believe Agreed, Turkey will be delighted with that result. 2nd place there for the taking ...

Re: Euro 2020 Thread

Yeah the third placed teams going through isn't ideal, one win in the group stage and you've got a very good chance of qualifying. Mostly just disappointed to be missing out on being there thanks to UEFAs insistence of hosting it in every corner of the continent.

Re: France V Wales

Technically if you’re giving a penalty for a handball that denies a goalscoring opportunity then it’s a red card, but that’s a pretty ridiculous rule anyway, even more so in a friendly. I agree with red cards for violent conduct or whatever but for a handball it’s just excessive. I’m sure France wou...

Re: West Ham United and Cabango – reports suggest interest…

I wonder how desperate our need to sell players is? If we assume that we don't have Ayew's wages to pay next season can we afford to keep Cabango and Roberts?

Re: Best wishes

That's one of the key differences for me. In the Championship you may have 5/6 chances a game, and score one. The top players in the top league will score from their one chance, often with a length of the field one touch passing move, goal in a few seconds from their penalty area to score. It certa...

Re: Best wishes

Enjoy it mate. It can be great fun especially if your team is good enough to compete with the big boys and give them a bloody nose. We were very good at it for the first few seasons we spent there before we lost our style and identity.

Re: If Cooper leaves...Who takes over?

Always remember the likes of Martinez, Rogers and Laudrup talking about taking risks and showing confidence. We are the opposite now. Scared. I think this is exactly right. Roberto and Brendan’s teams showed confidence by being brave in possession, trusting themselves and making things happen. On S...

Re: League 1 and League 2 playoff finals thread

Why the f**k is Madley refereeing a playoff final? He’s an abysmal referee and doesn’t seem to have improved at all from the times we had him. Completely screwed Newport over today.

Re: If Cooper leaves...Who takes over?

Never mind who takes over from Cooper - if anyone. Our top priority this summer should be a striker. Ideally, two or three. Oh, and someone who can really play the number 10 role. Oh, and a two-footed defensive midfielder to replace Grimes. That'll do for starters. We definitely need a decent strik...

Re: Goodbye Fulton

It's more embarassing to see players who have done better than most this season suddenly deemed as "league one at best" after one unfortunate (although deserved) red card. Oh come on, he consistently concedes needless free kicks with niggling tackles, one paced and not good enough....simples. He’s ...

We get a goal and their nerves will be shredded.
It is beyond belief how unlikely we are to score unless the fraud changes it at half time. I thought we looked bad on TV. This is incredible.
I said last week that I thought we might look better in person, and we definitely didn’t.

Re: Season 20/21: Swansea v Brentford, Championship Play Off Final Match Thread

Need to take one of the defenders off, bring on Whittaker or Dhanda I guess. Not exactly a load of options on the bench.
