Re: Mr Goss keeping options open

Maybe if our forwards were able to hold the ball up and create space they'd get more goals. At the moment you're effectively asking them to create their own chances and regularly rifle the ball in the net from 20 yards through a crowd of players or weave through a congested penalty area. I agree Lu...

Re: Match Thread: Birmingham City v Queens Park Rangers FC

Neither the supporters nor the team were in danger of losing their jobs had we lost the game though. True but being delighted for Holloway and not even mentioning the supporters and team shows a certain mindset. But it was a minor thing so lets just be happy we've won a game at last and leave it at...

Re: Match Thread: Birmingham City v Queens Park Rangers FC

Absolutely delighted for Ollie. Was OK with the team, including CW included and delighted that Ollie and the boys got over the line. Well done. I was delighted for us supporters and the team A win in spite of Ollie for you then? :roll: Did I actually say that. We win our first away game for a long ...

Re: Apparantly we are close to breaking FFP again

The fine that we are already threatened with relates to overspending in our promotion season of 2013-14. Caulker was signed after that, so we wouldn't be being punished twice for the same offence. In any case, it would be a transfer embargo rather than a fine. Whatever spin you want to put on it ou...

Re: Apparantly we are close to breaking FFP again

It appears the issue is mainly a salaries one so Caulker's departure is obviously the key as he'll be getting one of, if not the highest whack of any player. I've no idea what Nbakoto and Sylla are on but perhaps their departures are more about not being in favour with Ollie and getting something f...

Re: 3 x 6 losing matches

We're utter rubbish NOW. I don't see why we need to wait until we achieve a nice round milestone of 3 x 6. Can't people see that Ollie is just not a modern football manager? His sole tactic of give 110% is sadly not one that gets results in this day and age. If it wasn't Ollie we were talking about...

Re: Apparantly we are close to breaking FFP again

I'm puzzled that we still seem to be falling foul of FFP. It would be nice to see the figures but we obviously never will. The “belief” in the club that we can shift Caulker out seems like believing in fairy tales. I agree cannot possibly see how we are falling fail of FFP. If so then either our in...

Re: Goodbye NHS?

It was a very short term initiative which had benefits at the time but ignored the long term financial implications. Where I live, we are virtually without primary healthcare which is frightening. We are lucky if we can get an appointment within three weeks. People are going to A&E because GPs are ...

Re: How long does Holloway have?

As I've said before Holloway isn't untouchable - we've lost 5 out of 6 no tactics at all and lumping to Smith isn't tactical nous!!! I agree on the results, and not the first time that we've had a lengthy losing streak. But comment on Smith and tactics is harsh. We played some decent football yeste...

Re: Shooting

When I was at school (a long time ago) we had a games teacher (Mr Latimer) who said: "The goal is 8 yards (24 feet) and 8 feet high. That is 244 square feet to aim at. The best chance of scoring is to shoot for the top or bottom corners - this is where you stand the best chance of scoring as the go...

Winnie Mandela A cabbage from the local allotment The Crazy World of Arthur Brown And that's what it comes down to.
