  1. Re: Npower League 1 and 2 Official Thread Without all 3 starting midfielders in Dunne, Sercombe and Noble today, first choice strikers Nardiello and Bauza also out whilst Oakley has gone back to Leicester through injury. So against a Tranmere side we can never beat, we start with 6 defenders, 2 wingers making their first starts plus Taylor and Logan! On the bench there's 3 central midfielders who have about 15 career appearances between them, Pidgeley and a half fit O'Flynn edit; 1-0 Scot Bennett's first goal at senior level

  3. Re: Official Cricket Thread If Swann doesn't want to play in them then he shouldn't be selected, simple as that. Might help the rest of the team without his moaning as well

  5. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Once again the team on top for most of the season suddenly starts losing with around 10 games to go. All too predictable, hopefully we can start winning again but it's happened nearly every season I've had this team
  6. Re: Npower League 1 and 2 Official Thread Well another season with an FA Cup 1st round defeat, disappointing as the extra cash would have been very helpful. Sounds like it was another typical performance of the keeper and defence making stupid mistakes that cost us goals, why we still haven't learnt how to defend from corners I do not know! Simple fact is we don't have any depth, especially up front, Taylor's loan has been extended but he wasn't allowed to play, Nardiello and Bauza were both injured leaving us with O'Flynn who's been awful since returning from injury, Logan who's been pap all season (finally scored though so that's a positive) and Nichols who has talent but is far too lightweight and gets pushed off the ball with ease. 1 good thing to come from it seems to be Elliott Frear who got his first goal in just his 3rd sub appearance. Taken a while for him to get his chance as he's 21 now but it's great to have a proper winger at the club at last, something we've missed since Wayne Carlisle left 2/3 years ago. Signed Chris Hackett on loan from Millwall today who is a right winger, so maybe at last we can have 2 good wide players that can put in a decent cross for the strikers.
  7. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2011/2012 (I) I see Dale Jennings has played a few games for Bayern II, anyone know how well he's done in them?
  8. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Mr-Hammer is safely offline, so... Grimsby are still free
  9. Re: Npower League 1 and 2 Official Thread Eunan O'Kane I just wish he was in league 1 with us instead of Torquay His 2nd goal against Plymouth on Saturday was simply superb, don't get much better than that at this level.
  10. Re: Npower League 1 and 2 Official Thread Went behind in the first minute but Jake Taylor and a penalty from O'Flynn have put us in in the lead at Yeovil. Would be happy enough with a point considering the players we have out.. and we are completely screwed if Reading want Taylor back.. they have a very good player there, shame he isn't ours permanently

  12. Re: Official Euro 2012 Qualification Thread I still can't believe that he actually said that on the same day that Suarez was charged with being racist towards Evra, and whilst the England captain is being investigated by police. Even away from England it's only a few months ago that Marcelo accused Busquets and recently in Portugal, Alan alleged that Javi Garcia made a racist comment towards him. And of course it's still a huge problem in places like Bulgaria, Russia.. It's time this idiot decided to resign and save himself further embarassment
  13. Re: Available Teams, No Job Offers! (GC Teams Only!) Still free. Other 89s are Toivonen and Leandro Victor. 1 88 and 9 87.
  14. Re: Official Euro 2012 Qualification Thread Please tell me he didn't really say that Sweden certainly weren't a threat yesterday, they looked quite poor tbh, only when they brought Wilhelmsson on did they look slightly dangerous.
  15. Re: Official England Thread Hope that's Adam Johnson and not Andy Good to see that we've had 2 games in a row without conceding, something that's rarely happened under Capello. I just hope that he gives Walker, Rodwell, Jones etc a chance at the tournament rather than suddenly decide that experience is the best way and start asking everyone in international retirement to come back. edit; oh and I thought Carson was awful. His kicking was shocking, went to a Sweden player every time. Would like to see Ruddy in the next squad if he keeps playing well enough for Norwich, certainly better than Stockdale anyway
  16. Re: Available Teams, No Job Offers! (GC Teams Only!) Bayern Munich in GC43
  17. Re: Official England Thread Parker was superb yesterday, just a shame he's now 30 rather than 25. Lescott and Jagielka were both excellent and it would be good if they could both play against Sweden as well which obviously won't happen. Now put Richards in for Johnson, Sturridge for Milner, Adam Johnson for Walcott, Wilshere for Jones, Welbeck to start instead of Bent and you have a decent side. And also have to say that Capello got his tactics right for once
  18. Re: Npower League 1 and 2 Official Thread Forget that... Noble!!!!
  19. Re: Npower League 1 and 2 Official Thread Don't know why we bother entering cup competitions, still at least Walsall isn't quite as bad as Curzon Ashton
  20. Re: Official England Thread Hart, Johnson, Jagielka, Lescott, Cole, Jones, Parker, Lampard, Walcott, Bent, Milner. If that team manages to score it'll be a miracle
  21. Re: FA Cup Plymouth losing at home to Stourbridge :D:D
  22. Re: Gold Championship 1 News After spending ages deciding whether to quit Arsenal or not, decided I'll stay with them for now. Had a great chance of finally winning the title until the middle of September came and a run of 1 win in 13 games which saw me drop from 1st to about 6th. Also got knocked out of the Cup and SMFA Shield in that time so once again we look like winning something only to fail towards the end of season, with Torres only scoring 4 in 34 games. And people say this game isn't realistic.. Want to make changes to the squad, so everyone except McEachran, Welbeck and the mighty Pogrebnyak and Frei are available.
