    I like the Red Raiders’ new coaching hire. I think he’ll do well with his TX high school connections

    Fulhamification Part III

    At GP I see to remember ‘Baby I am Ready to Go’ was a constant on Big Bee Radio. Not that bothered that we no longer hear it but, when it does come in the radio or when I am in a shop or something, it does take me back to GP!

    Korantina Homes Cup 2021

    No idea of the standard of Rodina Moscow (even after having been to see quite a lot of football in Moscow over the years) relative to English football but sounds like the 3rd goal was a charged down clearance from Rees in goal so perhaps not as representative of the balance of play?

    Halil Dervişoğlu (On Loan to Galatasaray)

    Halil Dervişoğlu (On Loan to Galatasaray)

    Agreed. The question becomes whether either can develop enough to make it in the first team. We'll have to wait and see.

    Halil Dervişoğlu (On Loan to Galatasaray)

    Halil Dervişoğlu (On Loan to Galatasaray)

    Do you expect Joel Valencia to make a similar splash? point being, yea, we have a small sample size but: a) it is human nature to extrapolate or else no player would be discussed until they had played 40 games for Brentford in our strongest line-up b) there are other contextual clues including...
