  1. Wimbledon v Rovers

    It's not even in Wimbledon. It's in Kingston/Norbiton/Surbiton area. Maybe they weren't allowed to set up in Wimbledon, or maybe it was the only suitable ground they could find nearby.
  2. Walsall v Rovers

    He did far better than normally. No mistakes, but nothing spectacular. That's certainly an improvement!
  3. Walsall v Rovers

    Armstrong hitting the bar instead of making it 3 - 0 was the turning point. Totally different game now, but liking what I'm seeing. Williams much-improved, and Graham scores when he wants.
  4. Walsall v Rovers

    The problem is, Tyrone, it's no longer fashionable to do that. Only teams such as Barca would play their way out of trouble, but nowadays, it seems like any team believes it's the right thing to do. Maybe there's something to back that up, but it can be costly, as at Fleetwood... I used to play at right-back for my school (where they put the crap player!), and was always told: "If in doubt, put it out". Both Williams and Mulgrew made a mess of the situation, but we digress... Have a good day, all those going - will be cheering from afar - hopefully!
  5. Walsall v Rovers

    I wasn't really looking for your approval, just expressing my opinion.
  6. Walsall v Rovers

    One prime example is the Fleetwood goal... check out the awkward pass back from Williams to Mulgrew, before was forced to make that pass back to Raya without much thinking time.
  7. Walsall v Rovers

    No need to wonder, @Gav; I do, every game, I can assure you. What does "good honest defender" mean? Sounds a bit vague to me, and a nice way of calling him average. Promotion contenders, particularly those going for the automatics, can't really get by with average, can they? Williams has made a terrible habit recently of giving the ball away, and panicking, putting us in tight spots at the back - his confidence seems shot, to me, and despite interviews and fluff words, I think Bell coming in has something to do with that. There are just some things that he's done often, recently, that he wasn't doing earlier in the season. He may not be directly at fault for certain goals, but he's certainly been a big part of the problems leading up to them. Error-prone, he certainly is! I hope he gets his form back, because he's shown that he can be a decent player for us, but something isn't right with him at the moment. I think a couple of games out of the picture are needed. Edit: Perhaps my brain is wired backwards... Seems like a few think he's improved the last couple of months, while I think he's got worse.
  8. Walsall v Rovers

    I can't recall a time that Williams was directly to blame for a goal, either, but by the same measure, we need even our defensive players to try to make things happen. Mulgrew is to blame for a few goals conceded this season, but his offensive contribution has made that completely insignificant. Of course, it helps that Mulgrew is a set-piece specialist, but at least he has that in his locker, as well as an eye for moving forward and being reasonably accurate with long passes. Similarly, Nyambe is also to blame directly for a few goals conceded, but going forward, he really does offer more than Williams. I think Bell has shown that he deserves his chance at left-back. It does feel like Bell coming into the team has taken the wind out of Williams.
  9. Walsall v Rovers

    I thought the criticism of Williams was unfair earlier in the season, but he does seem to have taken a dip in form since Christmas; he gives the ball away very easily in the last month or so, and there are a good few games in that period where I vividly remember him being the most liable player on the pitch (save for Evans on Monday night). I think he needs a game or on the bench, and I think Bell has shown enough strength in defending, and some good forays forward, to warrant a starting spot at left-back - as and when Mowbray's coin toss decides we're going to play four at the back.
  10. LEAGUE 1 2017/18

    John Sheridan takes over at Fleetwood until the end of the season. Think that's a reasonable appointment, given that he's been there and done it before.
  11. LEAGUE 1 2017/18

    Looks like Craig Bellamy will get the Oxford job. Never thought he'd be manager material, but if Dunny can have a go, I suppose Bellers might as well try.
  12. Brexit Thread

    With respect, you do post some fantasies, sometimes. Even with the current mess, Brexit is happening, we just don't know how it will look. Also, if the 1997 election and subsequent unpopularity didn't end the Tory Party, I'm not sure that this will. I expected a hard Brexit to happen, and I suspect that is what the majority of Leave voters wanted. I can't imagine too many Leave voters being happy with what is going on; I'm pretty sure that this half-arsed attempt at leaving the EU isn't what they envisage or wanted. Trouble ahead regardless of the outcome?
  13. LEAGUE 1 2017/18

    It's not often that a David vs. Goliath sees David raise his game in a subsequent David vs. David match (in fact, they often do worse, perhaps because of depressing reality kicking in - I don't know).
  14. Gillingham away 17.3.18

    It holds 3,400, according to this.
  15. Rovers v Bury

    Shouldn't stop us peppering their goal, though. Just wish we'd stop mincing about with it at the back.
