Re: Posh v Ipswich

It's all about opinions Gaz and to suggest that their opinion differs from yours and then to pontificate that they have 'no understanding of the game whatsoever' is ridiculous. It is an ego filled comment. You are welcome to forward your opinions but please don't diminish the comments of others. FW...

Re: 13/08/2019 v Oxford (EFL away)

Played 3 lost 3 Oxford twice and Fleetwood not exactly a difficult start on paper ! What is the problem ?. If you ask Gaz it’s because Evans left and Fergie is nowhere near as good. If you ask someone with one iota of common sense they’ll point out that we have had some unbelievably bad luck like l...

Re: 10/08/2019 V Oxford (away)

The notion that a manager should not be held accountable for the on-field performance (stupid or otherwise) of his players is an interesting one. Giving away three avoidable goals doesn't preclude the team challenging for a draw or a 4-3 victory. As was intimated earlier in the thread, After Fleetwo...

Re: Past and Present Players

Grant McCann is, of course, the current manager of Hull City.

Last season LDSL's Championship experience was limited to a single twenty-minute substitute appearance. Thereafter, he went on loan to League One Gillingham, where he made fourteen appearances, rattling in one goal during that stretch.

Another reason to have a pop methinks
...and always from the Darragh haters
I'm not sure how commenting on a perceived inconsistency makes anyone a 'hater'. If criticism amounts to hatred, then support equates to sycophancy.

Re: 03/08/2019 V Fleetwood

I can't recall a less auspicious home debut by a striker than Eisa's on Saturday. He has the plodding, hang-dog demeanour of that other (reported) million-pound talent, LDSL. At least Joe Gormley and Luke James ran around a bit. I noticed in particular his behaviour on returning to the field for the...

Re: Retained List

'....should potentially lead to a possible....' rules out just about nothing.

Anyone can say more or less anything one day and change his/her mind the next. All that's at stake is credibility. It reminds one of Richard Nixon's 'inoperative statements'....

No loan signings this year according to DMac.
That policy nearly made it to Day One of the new season.

Re: Retained List

Anyone fancy a third helping of Martin Samuelsen? He's been on loan at VVV Venlo in Holland this season. Unlike Joe Lewis, Chris Forrester hasn't thrived at Aberdeen: he doesn't seem to have featured for their first team in 2019 -- though I don't know if that is injury-related. I believe his sister ...
