  • @ReturnToSenda said: @Shev said: I thought they did quite well in our L1 promotion season, personally. Different system, wouldn't suit what we do now (assuming we continue to play that way, of course). Differen…
  • @ReturnToSenda said: @eric_plant said: Have you ever thought of becoming a coach/manager? No, but I don't need to be one to have an opinion and see that Southgate isn't getting the best out of one of the most talented …
  • Anyone remember if the amount of 'minutes' Jimmy Greaves might get in the 1966 World Cup finals was a big talking point?
  • @ReturnToSenda said: @Wendoverman said: Perhaps those less tactically naive than me could explain why at 85 minutes and 1-0 down..centre forwards don't close down defenders who are just pinging it about along the back line... …
  • @ReturnToSenda said: Have to say VAR has been used brilliantly at the Euros (it's barely been noticeable that it's even there). Almost as if we've overcomplicated and made a right meal of it over here. Probably not seen as much as others …
  • @peterparrotface said: 419 was just the first half I think, up in the 900s See people on the beach complete that many passes in a game of keepy uppy. Never asked if they were World Cup winners.
  • @Malone said: @micra said: Any suggestion or inference that I have the kind of psychiatric disorder that your question implied is definitely a big deal to me and not something to be shrugged off as inconsequential. Eas…
  • Just wondered if the mate you kept mentioning was actually you but the moment has passed with a poorly typed post. No big deal @micra
  • Just to keep up is this maye actually you @micra ? Once more the England batting crumbles under the slightest hint of decent bowling. The decision to target one day success is coming home to roost with a lack of technique in the longer game. S…
  • @Shev said: If we are talking all goals (and cheating by using an ex-player) Fred v Fleetwood was wonderful. Significant, brilliant and a very memorable celebration. It ticks every box. Gape's more or less does too, though Fred's was a better str…
  • Feeling uncomfortable joining this thread after @ReturnToSenda and @Shev seemed to have a room. Gape at Chesterfield is the winner for me.
  • @Wendoverman said: I'm confused did no-one else know what was and wasn't racist when they were 18? I get the point but time has moved on and there is a different lens on these comments now to when they were made. That's both in terms of v…
  • @drcongo said: Am I the only one that 1) didn’t know Mitre made the match balls, and 2) didn’t care? No. I don't think you are. I'd never given it a thought in years. Probably since the year they had a bal with the red stripe around it.
  • Dream Team for me.
  • Hi @Alf . Haven't heard anything since a 1,300 number was mentioned a couple of weeks back. The media team have, apparently, been part of an office tidy up and move around so I guess they've not heard anything from the ticket sales part of the club…
  • @micra said: Lenny Hendrie also suggested that the temperature was about 26 degrees. Must be a micro climate at the stadium as maxima around London have been around 23 degrees. Much higher than 26 in the sun of course. Loving the sound…
  • How is a system designed to promote financial fair play forcing clubs to sell their stadiums? Surely that is the last thing that should be happening and the easiest thing to stop.
  • @Chris said: @DevC said: Without wishing to be negative about the club, it does feel like Gareth has reacted to the departure of Fred with considerably more class than whoever writes the Twitter feed. Or whoever told t…
  • @ReturnToSenda said: Not saying he has, because I don't know, but even players with previously impeccable character can act out if trying to force a move - but trying to force a move in itself isn't necessarily a bad thing imo, if it's a progress…
  • @micra said: I think if I was GA I would see it as interference rather than assistance but then I suppose he and Dobbo have been persuaded. I see a domestic parallel. Mrs micra often accuses me of interfering when I try to help but I must admit…
  • @Malone said: Fred would certainly be one of the last players you'd put in the bag egg category! True. Anyone suggesting otherwise is going dow a different and unwelcome path in my opinion. Fred has shown great attitude and learning in hi…
  • @micra said: Club?!! An 'Allo 'Allo reference. Lovely
  • Good luck Alex. Arrived just ahead of the start of the Couhig era and gave some good performances without ever being able to get ahead of others in the pecking order. Decent move. No mention of a fee and so far no anger.
  • Surely someone in the area has spoken to Fred in a coffee shop by now. Good luck to him. I’ve enjoyed watching him play for us and he has given us some great moments. Nothings lasts forever though and if he wants to stay at Championship level I h…
  • @Blue_since_1990 said: Where did this £50k thing come from? No idea but let's all get super angry about it.
  • @ReturnToSenda said: @eric_plant said: Do you think it was a good deal we got for him then? I have no reason to assume it wouldn't have been, but I don't have a divine right to know the financials of transfer deals. We…
  • @ReturnToSenda said: Tristan Nydam, released by Ipswich. Can play in midfield or on the left. Very impressed you linked all that together in 4 mins. I'm sitting on the fence on rumours from @kipperreborn . He didn't pick Fred's departur…
  • @Malone said: Yes it is quite a bizarre opinion that Muskwe is a target man and Uche isn't. Uche isn't the long ball target man, but he's still someone you play it into and he holds and draws fouls etc. I couldn't see him working out wide …
  • If not Muskwe we must sign a central target man striker. Uche is not that an had would be more dangerous playing slightly wider. Admiral can play that central role with Bayo as a back up.
  • Been saying for a couple of years Sunderland won’t get promotion while they keep Leadbitter and McGeady around the club. I still say that. Bournemouth have some massive problems. Seem such a disfunctional group and the antics today were no differ…
