Re: Peterborough thread.

If yesterday proved anything - it's that all that really matters in football are GOALS!
Just ask Leeds, who managed to bang 3 in away against the Premier Champs & still ended up losing the game....

My dear Choirboy.....at my age I tend to wear brown velvet underpants.... for obvious reasons.
Once again, the entirety of my earlier post was meant to be satirical.

Re: A Football Special Mystery

Re: A Football Special Mystery

What a sad indictment of the education system when young people don't know a Gresley from a Grapefruit.
Mind you! Standards have never been the same since they scrapped 'Train Spotting' from the...

A footnote for those aggrieved by the rotters from Portsmouth who 'press-ganged' Stanley out of the 58/9 FA Cup.

Well done Harrogate Town. Good to see a fresh face in the EFL.

My noble Lord's opinion (or is it an obsession) that the use of subs is ineffective seems to fly in the face of the facts.

Re: Substitutions and the Football Genius

Cashy, of course honest opinion is always welcome .
But I fail to see how some of the above 'opinions' could be deemed to be anything other than personal abuse.

Re: Substitutions and the Football Genius

Come on chaps! We're all on the same side here.
Let's not allow a thread on the pro's & cons of substitutes to descend into a personal slanging match.

Re: Window

As even strikers from the English National League appear beyond our means, perhaps we should be looking at the Irish & Scottish teams?

Milord, I appreciate your golfing metaphor.
However, how boring it would be if, when watching the Masters at Augusta, all the pro's played safe & scored par at every hole - YAWN!

Re: Substitutions and the Football Genius

To anyone who doubts the the whole value of substitutes, here's a little reminder of what happened when we met Shrewsbury at the Wham earlier this season;

Re: Substitutions and the Football Genius

Lord D, who's to say it made no difference?

Likewise, substituting Diallo & Charles (our...

Re: Substitutions and the Football Genius

As we've lost more games than we've won, we all remember the former & not the latter.
