Re: The C-word

Yes I saw that yesterday. Though I'm not sure I should listen to one bloke on the internet rather than the Chief Medical Officer. In fact I think this is part of the problem. A bloke who wrote an article called 'How to write a funny speech' writes another one about coronavirus, and 17 million people...

The C-word

Worthy of its own thread surely! What I imagine may derail us this season is the c-virus and the impact this will have on our (already dreadful) finances. It is only a matter of time before we see games being played behind closed doors/the season postponed. Given how much we are already losing this ...

Re: Freefall

And now Robinson is making clear hints about unhappiness. Isn't that just interpretation to stimulate debate? I've heard nothing from Robbo that suggests any frustration are with the club. More likely I suspect his frustrations are with the poor standard of referees and effective gagging by the EFL...

Re: Freefall

Looking at the goals on the highlights reel, the tempo of the attacks and the slick passing reminded me of how Posh tore us apart. Play like that against anybody in this division and they will struggle to live with it. We scored some lovely goals and won at an absolute canter. But we were pretty sl...

Re: Freefall

I also don’t have a problem with stability - I’ve said several time that it’s been an enjoyable season and I’m happy that we’re at the right end of the table. But various members of the Board have said on various occasions that the aim is to become an established Championship club. And in early Janu...

Re: Freefall

Interesting debate about the money problems at the top of football. But I'm not sure that explains a spanking against Peterborough, a club currently spending their seventh consecutive season in League 1. I wasn't at the game, Jerome, but we know that we are capable of matching teams man for man, inc...

Re: Newcastle Utd

No comments on the replay? Having got over the disappointment of Newcastle's late goal I reckon that was a pretty decent showing from Us. The disappointing aspect is that where we kept our shape and discipline almost perfectly for 90 mins at SJP, here we had a hand in all of Newcastle's goals - dick...

Re: Bapxit Day

Agree with Ty that we were always expecting to lose a couple of midfielders in this window - otherwise why sign Kelly and Holland? The real issue is the timing and expectation management by the club, and the fact that we've replaced assets with short-term loans. Disagree with Ty that Baptiste wouldn...

Re: Newcastle Utd

The Klopp schtick is wearing very thin. One of his first games in charge of Liverpool (iirc) was a cup tie at Exeter, where he played the kids and had to come back to Anfield for a replay. You’d have thought he’d have learned by now. This was easily avoidable by fielding a half-decent XI, who are an...

Re: Newcastle Utd

Given that our match is confirmed for the Tuesday and BBC's live match is scheduled for the Wednesday, I'm asuming the Beeb will be showing Spurs vs Saints and the best we can hope for is BT Sport. I wasn't counting on BBC1 shifting their schedule around to accomodate the Mighty Yellows of course. ...

Re: Newcastle Utd

Well deserved draw I reckon. Generally we kept our shape well and seemed to have as much of the play as our hosts (haven’t seen the stats though). The difference in class only really told in the final third, where Newcastle moved the ball quickly and found players in space whereas we tried to overpl...

Re: Seasons greetings

Happy New Year all. And what an amazing year it's been. 364 days ago I was at Home Park watching our third woeful capitulation in a row to teams in the relegation places, a result which left us 22nd in the table with twice as many defeats as wins. I had no hope at all that Robinson was the man to ta...

Re: Man City

Yep, it was a million miles more fun than last time we lost to them. We tried to keep it tight and just hang in there in the first half, and mostly succeeded except for the one occasion that Ruffels got sucked into trying to compete for a ball on the halfway line and left an acre of space behind him...

Re: Man City

What we did last time. Give it our best shot, but once Man City have sauntered to a 2-0 lead, we plead with Mr Guardiola for a non-aggression pact whereby we won't injure any of his starlets as long as they don't humiliate us! Surely ‘what we did last time’ is get 1 forward (Obika) to harry their d...
