    Thomas Frank

    Mr Cynical would be proud of that post! No doubt his profile has been boosted massively across this season, this is fantastic news.

    Score Centre 2021/2022

    Itching to see the Saudi Arabia Murderous Regime XI have to play the likes of Wycombe next year…… sticks in the throat to even think it, but it’s a dirty Leeds win for me!!!

    James Tarkowski (Burnley)

    Fair point, I had totally forgotten that. But you are precisely one of the hard-nosed bastards I was anticipating ;)

    James Tarkowski (Burnley)

    Call me old Brentford, but I'd like to see us make a voluntary add-on payment to Oldham FC if this finally goes through. Our exact sell-on clause I have forgotten, but imagining we are due something like 25% above 6M quid? So in the ballpark of 3.5M due if he goes for 20M quid. Those poor...

    Too Many Away Fans in Home GA Areas (split thread)

    It matters massively how they behave. It's not so long ago that due to a total mess by BFC, loads of Bees fans were forced to find a way to get tickets for the home end at Southampton in our biggest Cup game for years. I remember looking with envy at the packed out, bouncing away end, whilst I...

    Rumour Aaron Hickey (Bologna RB / LB) Interesting article from last November. Left Celtic for a pathway to first XI football at Hearts, turned down bigger clubs to sign for Bologna for the same reason. Sounds like the right mentality...

    Shandon Baptiste

    The impression you get from Shandon is that he is undoubtedly Premier League quality on the ball, but whether due to lacking match fitness or maybe even mentality, he doesn't seem ready to play a more defining and aggressive defensive game when we are out of possession, which of course is a big...

    Liverpool champagne moment

    I honestly expected two yellows, because Norgaard took someone out 10 seconds earlier. Not sure either tackle was carded.

    Strong Rumour Brennan Johnson (Forest winger)

    I don’t think comparisons to players bought when we were a championship club are valid. It is clear we are genuinely interested in Johnson, maybe a more reasonable fee can be reached in the summer, with I think one year left on his contract. This assumes Forest fail to get promoted. They may...

    Out on Loan Joel Valencia

    The main disappointment with Valencia as a wide player was that he showed neither the ability, nor even the desire to go round people. I hope that whoever scouted him is still on the naughty step, very unusual for us to get one so totally wrong. Wish him well with his future career & look...

    NZ v Bangladesh Test Match

    Absolutely loved watching that, went through three times on the roll. Wonderful stuff!! Was imagining if that would have been Jimmy / Stuart Broad having to do their own backing up & chase the ball all the way to the long off boundary after having a catch not just dropped at second slip, but...

    The Ashes 2021/22

    And this needs to be happening on a good pitch in July/August, not April!

    The Ashes 2021/22

    Wow an absolute mess. The dressing room will be in bits. God knows where we go from here for the two remaining games. Cummins aside who is top class, their support bowlers getting all the wickets are decent, but nothing special. Says a lot about our fragile technique and mentality as a batting...

    Smith Bowled by Jimmy!!! How sweet is that!!!! Now two left handers who he can trouble

    Why is Wood rested after a nicking Labuschagne off from a 2 over spell????

    Goalkeepers we have known and loved (or not)

    I remember being very grateful & slightly amazed that with 4 sent off after a big punch-up, Blissett was still on the pitch

    The Ashes 2021/22

    My biggest problem is with the management team / coach. All this resting players has blatantly not worked. Plus the feeling I have is they’re not getting a tune out of a core number of decent players.
