  • @glasshalffull said: I don’t disagree with your argument Malone, but I was making a point about our most recent results and how form fluctuates. If you go back 15 or 20 games I’m sure the statistics would look even better, but that’s not a reflec…

  • Lol @micra and @drcongo I don't remember this orange business. I remember Celtic vaguely. Although i can't remember if that was also Cousin's testimonial, or if that was two separate events.
  • El Abd as player manager. At least he'd get a game that way! A truly bonkers let down of a season for him after the last two good years.
  • @LX1 said: Not being positive or negative here just making a statistical observation.. When it is quoted that a team has won '8 of their last 10,' you can immediately deduce that they have also won '8 out of their last 11,' which doesn't s…

  • Although it seems to be one of our finest traditions to immediately pour scorn on every single new idea...this is surely a great, utterly risk free, nice little idea that surely no one can truly have any issue with?!
  • @Wendoverman said: @thedieharder said: Rolando Aarons scored some cross/shot in the cup for Motherwell. Starting to wonder if we should give him another chance? Too late. To be fair we did give him a chance. Was it …
  • @glasshalffull said: Funny how people’s perception is that we’re going through a bad patch because we’ve won 4 of the last 7 games. Repeat that form in the remaining games and we’d almost certainly make the playoffs. It is 4 wins from 7, …

  • @Chris said: Do referees always work with the same assistants over the course of a season? I didn’t know that. Interesting! Yeah I thought they did in the Premier league, but didn't know that in the lower ones.
  • @chairboyscentral said: @Malone Yeah, he's the ref for our game on Saturday, so let's get out of sight before the soft red card. Ah, gotcha.
  • One game at a time chaps! It's the first rule! There's absolutely no way to tell if we're going to hit 1st in league form, or haven't scored/won a game for months form! So we get to Saturday, and see how that goes. (Though guttingly I'm miss…

  • @chairboyscentral said: Even if that was the case, it will be the same team of officials. All the more reason to come flying out of the traps and wrap it up before half-time! I think 3-0+ is perfectly doable against a team Gaz will respect as alw…
  • They could possibly look at bringing in some rule that says a player has to have played xx% of the team's games that season. Otherwise it can be a farce when say an Ipswich, can get a game called off because it suits them injuries wise, because t…
  • @chairboyscentral said: Oh https://twitter.com/Neil_Harman57/status/1229844152168390660 It was the linesman who gave that shocking call on Phillips v Peterboro though wasn't it? Yes the ref could have overruled him, but when a linesman…
  • @Wendoverman said: I did not see on the highlights but did tje keeper get a red? Surely he was the last man or was there someone behind him? Long changed the last man rule. As long as you're making a "legit" challenge you can utterly mas…
  • @chairboyscentral said: https://lionofviennasuite.sbnation.com/2020/2/16/21139284/player-ratings-bolton-wanderers-0-2-wycombe-wanderers As I say, I didn't think Bolton were that bad - but their biggest fansite are not happy. I remember a …
  • @our_frank said: @chairboyscentral I thought that about the penalty and the goalkeeper, too. I really don't approve of the "double jeopardy" rule change, as I don't think defenders should be encouraged to take their chances denying goal-s…
  • @Tom said: As I said... We didn't look that good. Smyth had a couple of good runs, Fred looked OK (albeit a game or too off full fitness), we looked slower across the park and in the first half I felt they had an extra player. We won by an own go…
  • That's interesting to know - and the key thing being in a 46 game season, Momentum is everything though, so if we can put a little run in, as Peterborough and Portsmouth recently showed, you can storm up. That 2 week break we have in 3 games t…
  • bungled the edit above...
  • Excellent, and things look a lot more positive. 12 games left, 6 of them against bottom half teams - 3 in the bottom 4. Fred back, and it sounds like he and Smyth did well. A couple of good results went our way, but a lot of rivals won, leavi…
  • Ruvree stuff.
  • @chairboyscentral said: @Malone said: radio commentary online available anywhere but ifollow? Is it not on the BBC 3CR website? seems to say not available online...unless im mistaken
  • radio commentary online available anywhere but ifollow?
  • About as positive as we can field. It's like a return to the early season fun debates about how we'd pack in so many forward players.
  • Oh..was empty's little comment earlier about who is a proper fan and who isn't then
  • @glasshalfempty said: You can spot the ones who aren’t travelling. And the ones who are. How's that?
  • @mooneyman said: @Doob said: And when they win their appeal we can look forward to the team that finish 5th making their own legal challenge, complaining that EUFA have broken their own rules and demanding they still be allowed to p…
  • @OxfordBlue said: > If there's one thing Dev doesn't like, its hypothesising. Lol.
  • Jon Moss always looks to be a good few stone overweight, so im surprised he can either be heard making comments from miles away, or has the breath left to do so.

  • @floyd said: Pattison was a pre-investment signing wasn’t he? And so was Gape’s renewal IIRC. Bloomfield’s got at least another year in him, he actually seems to be getting better with age. You are correct. That's why I say he "fee…
