Re: Playoffs

I think Agricultural football is probably better suited to the play-offs in these circumstances - playing the high pressure, fast football we attempt to play is harder to get right from cold, as we saw on Friday. I saw bit of the league 2 play-off final and Northampton bullied Exeter. I can see Wyco...

If you have spare tesco clubcard points around, you can use these for NowTV too.

Re: How would you end it?

I think the league needs to have some idea of what next season is going to look like before making final decisions about this one. Football is going to change dramatically, at least in the short-to-medium term. Will clubs survive? What will the structure and timescales be? Those are more important ...

Re: Freefall

We still have a decent chance of the play-offs I think - the biggest reason for our bad form was the lack of Henry and Brannagan, if those two remain fit we have half a chance. During our excellent run of results and performances these two stood out, along with Cadden and Fosu. The failure to replac...

Re: Newcastle Utd

It was strange being so high up, felt higher than Wembley although I've no idea if that's true or not. Made watching the highlights after a bit surreal as it seemed like a different game. Unusual too that the ground was in the city centre, it was good for that reason, although you'd wonder if the no...

Re: Scoring in the Rain

I think the test of promotion not profit theory will come in the January window. Brannagan in particular is likely to attract a lot of interest. What impressed me (via ifollow, so it's not the same) is the energy of the front players to win the ball back after they'd lost it, these days it's probabl...

Re: Burton...

First one I've managed to watch online this season, Burton were excellent but I thought we were alright going forward as well - especially as Woodburn went missing for large parts of the game and it was Taylor's first game. One thing on him though, he's hardly been prolific, or even played that much...

Re: Bolton

Also, I'm not sure blaming the fans, or suggesting they've brought it on themselves is particularly fair unless you have some actual evidence. Especially given we're very much at the mercy of our owners here, what did we lose last financial year - was it £2million? Given all the winding up orders we...

Re: Bolton

Games are postponed for squad sickness reasons very occasionally, this is possibly an extension of that. Although I can see why people think they're pulling a fast one, however they're pretty much shafted this season anyway.

Re: Bolton

Suspend them would mean they go bust though surely, which means no club and lots of people out of a job - all for "competitive balance". I think it's better to give them every chance to turn it round, which is surely what we'd expect if it was us.

Re: Ibrox

I turned up 20 minutes late (which is foolish for a pre-season as usually only the first half has even vague interest). Meant I got escorted into the away end by a steward though which is a first. Rangers looked a lot better than us though, as you'd expect for a team with their budget and I think if...

Re: Ibrox

I live in Glasgow, from experience I really wouldn't be worried about this, unless you're a nutter who goes looking for trouble you'd be extraordinarily unlucky to get caught up in anything to do with it.

Re: 10 is the magic number

Given the last 2 goals scored by Whyte, I can only hope Sam Ricketts serenaded Luke Waterfall with the TLC song after the game.... Don't go chasing, Luke Waterfall Please stick your head on the long ball like you're used to I know that you're gonna have it your way or nothing at all But I think you'...

Re: What a let down

I just don't see what Gobbo adds. Some seem to be happy to celebrate draws against the worst teams in the division. I'm not. With our playing budget, the very least we should expect is to be beating teams in the lower half of the table, in the majority of games, and picking up results against top h...
