  1. In spells they are playing some decent stuff and are comfortably matching Leeds. The big difference is that in the final third we are shocking and Leeds look dangerous.
  2. Agree with this 100%. As stated above Pears had next to nowt to do tonight. Their keeper was heroic.
  3. We're sitting so far back their keeper is going to get mom.
  4. I thought it was a decent performance. One positive was young Pears. Didn't have much to do but what he did have he did competently, although his kicking needs to improve. The club have said don't expect any big spending in January but if they could find a decent striker then I have no doubt the effect of someone actually providing an end product would have a positive effect on the whole team,certainly enough to finish mid-table. The striker in question doesn't have to be an expensive world beater, just someone who is better than what we have would do, can't be that hard surely.
  5. There were two marking him, neither went with him when he went for the ball, one move central and the other stood still.
  6. He's in for a shock when we go into the 20th minute of injury time.
  7. A poster on FMTTM has just put up a link to the club shop and it turns out that you can no longer buy a shirt with his name on it. His name is there but greyed out and not active. Coincidence?
  8. My understanding is that Gibbo and his brother fell out after Steve blocked Ben leaving. He wanted him to stay for a season, which he did and after that he was off to the highest bidder. Whether or not there is any residue I have no idea but I was also led to believe that Ben's dad "retired" from Bulkhaul over it.
  9. A bloke on another site is complaining that he couldn't get in with his ST card. Had four goes at re-activating it but failed each time with the queues of people in a similar situation getting larger all the time. He's at home watching it now and not happy. I wonder how many more didn't get in?
  10. I don't. As I read earlier that bids had been accepted by both clubs. So I'm taking it for lazy Journalism.
  11. So we haven't bid for Bryan then? Is that what you are saying?
  12. Their chairman is already getting grief from their fans so this might be a ploy. Walk away, state again that he's not for sale, we come in with a stupid amount (as is our wont) and then he can turn round and say "well we wanted to keep him but boro just blew us away with the amount they offered" Alternatively, he might not be for sale.
