  • Interesting that in that table Villa and Bolton are on the same number of points. Lets just say that their fates went in very different directions after that....
  • I certainly agree that we should have been quicker to react when the ball went loose from Woodman's save. Hogan seemed to be on his own having started in a group of players.  
  • Oops! Had forgotten about that one. The next home game I can make is Cardiff!
  • First of all lets give credit to Stoke who were clearly the better team on the day. As others have stated, when you look at the players they have at their disposal they should not be bottom of the table. I saw them at Charlton in the second game of …
  • As to the "ghost goal" we were sitting in the upper tier of the main stand level with the penalty spot. Have to say I thought the ball was well out of play when Fulton hooked it back. The only issue was that both myself and the Charlton fan I was wi…
  • I watched with a Charlton fan sitting high in the main stand which gave an excellent perspective.I thought we controlled the game well in general and aside from the goal cant recall Charlton having any clear cut chances. We also played some decent f…
  • Worth noting, though, that Reading were down to 10 men for a large part of the game, something that might easily have happened last Saturday.Last night's results and resultant league table really demonstrate what an open and unpredictable division t…
  • I think the lack of pace is a real issue, particularly when compared to the second half of last season when Dan James came into his own and sides were frequently defending ten yards deeper, often leaving more space between the lines. This was eviden…
  • One big difference from the Martinez/Sousa/Rodgers era is that in those days very few if any Championship teams played a European passing style like the Swans and other sides didn't really know how to approach playing us. Teams used to long balls be…
  • My recollection is that up to the early 1970s many teams used their city/borough coat of arms (or a variation) as a badge. Local authorities got wise to their intellectual property rights and started restricting use. Possibly the violence that was a…
  • It would be nice to think that the events of this week will pull the football authorities out of their torpor. In particular it would be good to see a proper FFP test, proper application of FFP, some form of salary cap and a German style professiona…
  • Hate to be pedantic, but I'm afraid the radio commentator referred to by SeaJack clearly hadn't done his research.The first five games of 2020-11 under BR yielded 6 points from home wins over Preston and Burnley. However, there were three away defea…
  • I was at the Charlton v Stoke game the other week which made for an interesting comparator with our own performances.Stoke started really well with Ryan Woods, Joe Allen and Sam Clucas (!) passing the ball well and controlling midfield. At that poin…

  • When having these discussions it is worth remembering that any style depends on the personnel available, and also recognition that there are two teams on the pitch.There were times last season -particularly in the first half - where we were extremel…
  • Mixed feelings about this. On the one hand Jeff could still be a great impact sub and make important contributions in the second half of games eg Millwall (A) Wigan and Brum (H) last season. On the other he'll probably be injured by the 1st Septembe…
  • The comment that there was history between AA and BB is intriguing. To my recollection they were not here at the same time. AA played in 2015-16 but left before the start of 2016-17 at about the same time before BB arrived. BB spent 2018-19 out on l…
    in Ayew Excited? Comment by Garbo August 9
  • Worth bearing in mind that the transfer window in France (and many other countries) doesn't shut until the end of the month. While I cant see any French club that Ayew is likely to be of interest to matching his current wages we could probably save …
    in Ayew Excited? Comment by Garbo August 9
  • I don't think that Atalanta will take the game less than seriously but as somebody has already pointed out they are probably slightly behind us in pre-season.It will be interesting to see if Josip Ilicic plays as I always thought he should have been…
  • Didn't they do something similar in their relegation season, spending oodles of cash on a bunch of French players (including Jordan Ayew) of whom few proved decent signings.
  • In reality a move across South London was always a logical choice for him given the options. Already knows the team and the way its set up, doesn't need to move house etc. No brainer really. As others have said, we have bigger priorities and his inj…
  • Was highly impressed by Bielek in the games I saw him play for Charlton last season. I suspect that Charlton would be keen to sign him permanently but rather like ourselves their ownership are unlikely to sanction any substantial fee. Could either p…

  • Speaks volumes about Ashley's Toon. Worth a punt for the bottom three?
  • As somebody who was present on Saturday I took the following:-1. For the first half when we played something like a recognisable first team we were well on top. Whether this was because the Creepies were poor or we were good is debateable, but one s…
  • Sheffield Utd are also supposed to be after Maupay of Brentford. I suspect that if they signed one they would not pursue the other.
  • The 50 year celebration angle is a tad underwhelming - I though they might have recreated the 1969-70 shirt which I recall was a fantastic exercise in minimalism- plain white with no badge, sponsors logo or other clutter! Less is more!

  • The fact that Bidwell did well at Brentford is encouraging as they have been one of the better footballing sides in the EFL in recent years.As to Rangel and his behaviour before the QPR game, what were some people expecting? A hat-trick of own goals…

  • We'll never really know, but the final couple of Months of Laudrup did see some very mundane performances where the ball was being passed around to no great effect. Perhaps if he'd been more motivated the tactics would have been tweaked and we'd hav…
    in Monk sacked Comment by Garbo June 21
  • Be interesting to see whether those predictions remain the same on the eve of the first game when we'll have a better idea of how squads are going to pan out. 
  • Birmingham appear to have been here before. A couple of seasons back they sacked Gary Rowett when they were usefully placed in upper mid table following a decent start to the season. Apparently their owners wanted a style of football that was better…
    in Monk sacked Comment by Garbo June 21
  • Worth remembering that in our promotion season we regularly featured a  central midfield of Leon and Joe, neither of whom could be described as physically imposing although both were quick on their feet and not averse to a decent tackle. We also had…
