  1. Past hour
  2. Not sure I've see enough to think we're about to start winning games... still probably would have lost on Saturday without their huge defensive error. On current form would expect 6 points from those fixtures. One win, three draws. If Hull (H) or Barnsley (H) is a convincing win then I might feel more optimistic.
  3. Today
  4. So... We'll get 3...? 😂
  5. How long does it take for an application to fans forum to be decided? Surely it shouldn’t take more than a month, if we haven’t heard anything back by end of this month then I think we should write it off as a bad job tbh. My use of end of the month for a deadline based on the fact that if we have been accepted before then we will need time to arrange a representative to attend and meetings are usually earlier in the month, also if we haven’t been invited as a member to the December meeting that will mean it’s taken over 2 meetings periods. Not having a go at the forum club or it’s members just wondering how long does it take to say yes you can join, or no you cannot join, as the agenda for the November meeting made no mention of our application.
  6. P Colchester v Bradford. H Crawley v Morecambe. H Exeter v Cheltenham. H Forest Green v Plymouth. P Grimsby v Newport. D L/Orient v Scunthorpe. (Novak) H Macclesfield v Mansfield. A Northampton v Crewe. A Port Vale v Carlisle. D Salford v Swindon. .......... P Stevenage v Oldham. A Walsall v Cambridge.
  7. I reckon 9pts, then again I’m second bottom of the predictions league do prob will be knowhere near
  8. Ah, great times back in 1995. That was really quite an occasion. Hard to believe the calibre of players we could attract back then. Interesting to note in that 1982 paper, one of the articles states that the club was losing 12 grand a week. Seems all was not well, long before 1986. 😞

  14. Yesterday
  15. Nope, not embellishing anything. In fact I received a PM a few weeks ago from someone on here who has been ITK as recently as the summer just gone saying Britt still wants to leave. Pulis DID want rid of Britt, that's what started the whole thing off. When Gibson blocked the transfer Britt realised he was stuck here unwanted by the manager. I don't even know why i'm bothering explaining this to you though, you'll still continue to attack me.
  16. My favourite prank of his is the one with the Toot Toot Drivers toys, where his wife found out and turned the prank back round on him. Or the impossible to complete picture clue game he created to wind up one of his annoying friends.
  17. Yeah, he probably skipped the game and did some chrimbo shopping 👍
  18. I don't have a soft spot for him. I wasn't convinced when we bought him unlike most on here and I rated Bamford as the better player as I also said repeatedly on the forum, preferring to keep him and sell Assombalonga if I had a choice. But he is the best we have right now and it's not even close. We have a big problem with goal scoring within the rest of the team but he's the one taking the flak for that as well, which is just nonsense. The other players aren't missing chances because of anything he does. Wing and McNair have had almost the same number of shots as Assombalonga this season. Assombalonga's shots and chances are better (closer to the goal) than either of them of course so quite rightly he will be expected to score more goals. But as a team we have the worst goal scoring record in the league and Assombalonga is the joint 9th highest scorer in the Championship so how is that his fault? Look at the league table - West Brom's top scorer has 6 goals, Swansea's top scorer has 6 goals, Bristol City's top scorer has 6 goals, Leeds top scorer has 5 goals. There are plenty of teams who don't have a single player who has scored 6 or more goals this season, we do but it's his fault that we're struggling? I have no idea what you mean by needless runs. It's a strange thing that some people criticise the bloke for not working hard enough and now you appear to be saying he works too hard? He does make runs behind the defence, he does it repeatedly and doesn't get the ball. Because he's playing up front on his own mostly he is also having to play the role of target man as well, coming short to try and get on the ball, which clearly doesn't suit him as you say. So he's effectively trying to be two different players and I think he's caught somewhere in between. He doesn't spread the play well enough and he does dwell on the ball, I completely agree with that. These things do my head in because it really should be an easy thing to fix and it hasn't been done by now, which either means they aren't working on it or he's just not improving that aspect of his game. I don't think he's a particular intelligent footballer, which might have something to do with it. He's missed some chances he should have scored this season but then I bet every player in the league has done the same. It's standing out more for us because nobody else is contributing anything that's why he has scored as many goals as everyone else. A few more stats that are worth noting; we have the 2nd highest number of shots outside the penalty area and I believe the 3rd lowest inside the penalty area. In other words, we're taking a lot of longer shots and we aren't scoring from them. It's not Assombalonga who is doing that. I suppose what I'm saying is criticise him for the things that he is responsible for rather than placing all of the failings of the team on his shoulders. He should be doing better this season, but all of them should be, and our goal scoring issues are a team wide problem, not just his.
  19. 24 years ago today on the 12th November 1995 seen the official opening of the Riverside stadium when Samodoria were the team who accepted the invitation, Juninho, Robbo, Barnby us fans had to blink twice to 1st see the surroundings we were sat in & 2nd who were on the pitch playing for the mighty Boro, crazy days
  20. No, old Codger, the game when KK wasn't happy that our defence, team, restricted him & marshalled him the whole afternoon was on the 2nd October 1976
  21. Unlike most I don’t hold out much hope for any changes come the transfer window because who would want a player from a poor performing club and what would he be worth. Who would you expect to join a club in a relegation battle with no future, and even if there was someone daft enough, it would take months to settle in while during the period it would disrupt the team. Who is to say Woody has a future and the only reason we will see any change is to lower the wage bill, not strength the squad. Strap in it’s going to be another long season that can’t end soon enough but we won’t be relegated.
  22. Nice to know that money isn't the sole motivator for all players. God knows we need him to stay more than most. Must be the parmos... 🤪
  23. Ha I was however I dont think he probably redeemed his Nectar points to get it for free 🙂 He was with his Mrs, looked like they had spent the weekend in London. Tbf he seemed polite etc and who knows what is happening behind the scenes atm.
  24. I watched his new show for the first time last night and have to agree, was ok but nothing like his normal shows.
  25. Got a feeling someone has a soft spot for Britt. By no means am i trying to start an argument but i disagree with a lot with what you said and hear me out as i know you will come back with more stats to shoot me down. I felt to Britt at times under Pulis as he was completely isolated and just a target man, however towards the back of last season and this season he has had Fletcher who has played alongside him and things havent improved in performances as a whole. Strikers miss chances and for that i wont be over critical because more often than not they will score, but his all round game is shocking. I actually believe PART of the reason he misses so many chances is because of fatigue and how tired he is because of needless runs and playing as a target man. The amount of needless runs is incredible and if i was a coach i would want my striker to make runs in behind or separate the Centre halves and Britt does neither. Woody should be accountable for this as our wing backs dont press the opposite full backs and Britt ends up doing it. Britt doesn't lay the ball off to team mates or spread the play and he constantly dwindles on the ball for far too long and slows our attacks down. I actually think his hold up play has massively improved but he should be a poacher and not a target man. Britt will score goals at this level but because of the reasons i have stated above i don't think he will never be prolific other than the championship.
