Re: The ashes

I don't know a great deal about Aussie domestic cricket but I gather the State Competition is a better grounding and a bit more like test cricket than the mishmash of matches we have during our summer. I'd rather go down to Ham Common and watch Ham v Ealing than see the slogfest of limited over mat...

Re: Cyrille Regis RIP

What can I say, Cyrille was a hero to me as a West Indian growing up in London, I've read some of the West Brom forums and they are genuinely shocked and very, very emotional. Many stories of people hearing about his death while driving and having to pull over to grieve. I've been tearful most of t...

Re: The ashes

Whitewash or not, IMHO this has been a terrible Ashes tour...and in my several decades of watching Test cricket I have a bit of a benchmark against which to judge matters! :evil: We've made an ordinary Aussie team look like a team of World beaters. Only a handful of the English team will be able to...

My eyes fixed themselves to a certain part of that picture and as hard as I tried I couldn’t move them for around 30 seconds.
I've been fortunate enough to meet her in the flesh a few times and I reckon my eyes (albeit behind sunnies) were much the same...much to the missus' disgust! 8)

Re: Van Dijk - £70,000,000

Without a doubt she's a seriously fantastic surfer but I'm not quite sure what she brings to Liverpool's defence?

Re: SMYTHHHHHH

We said EXACTLY the same Systemsguy. So raw and direct. He was a constant menace . A genuinely superb debut from him, against one of the toughest defenders in the division too. He was given a very hard time by a number of those players, and stood up to it and capped his performance with a brilliant...

Re: SMYTHHHHHH

This lad actually reminded me of another English striker from years ago who had pace to burn when he was young and before injuries took their toll.... Wow the way he skinned Bamba? was phenomenal and the aplomb he took his goal was breathtaking.... We said EXACTLY the same Systemsguy. So raw and di...

Re: FA Cup

Agreed. We won't win the flipping thing but we could lose a vital player You could lose a vital player in any game. True but very annoying if that game is a meaningless FA Cup tie. If we were comfortable mid/upper table then why not have a go in the cup but we aren't. I agree but statistically spea...

Re: 6 points out of 30

Another few weeks we will be bottom 3. Time for change Why not. It works every time. That is actually the strongest argument we have for not giving Ollie the boot Unfortunately, the unadulterated truth! However, the beast that is modern football suggests to me that IH's tenure is now on borrowed ti...

Re: What has happened to Esox Lucius ?

He is an occasional poster on the LFW site but in a more circumspect manner. The disappearance of Davef is another puzzle . Indeed and I do rather miss his presence on this MB. In his more (infrequent) mellow moments EL spoke a fair amount of sense but I do agree the criticism levelled at him in th...

Re: BOS

A number of Premier League clubs were looking at him before we signed him including, if I recall correctly, Arsenal. The signing was accompanied by quite a fanfare yet Holloway has barely used him and when he has...out of position! ethink

Re: Never a penalty

And as for the "body check" on Ned as he was picking the ball out of the net, clearly the ref was happy to let that go unpunished! :twisted:

An interesting 17 min documentary on a recent Brum v Villa derby.



Idiot football fans still abound and the police seem strangely clueless.
Still wearing Stone Island & Burberry it would seem! :shock:
