Graham's favourite love child are back in the Championship lead by Lee Bowyer's on again off again commitment to the team. He's as ugly as his posturing for money! Unfortunately his team seem to be doing the business. Most league one teams who get promoted seem to continue that trend and end up in the Prem, (see Norwich, Southampton, Fester etc). Our job should we choose to accept it is to bludgeon them with big buggers who don't really know how to play football. Yes i am talking to you Samba Sow!
Charlton by all accounts play football. We have run into that problem with other teams in the past (Norwich, Brentford, Fulham..) Will Watson crack with mobile footballers running at him? We shall see. We shall see.
Is this the game where we break our dreadful away day record?
It is noticeable that with Sow and Semedo there is a very physical presence in the middle of the park, Sow's workrate yesterday stood out and despite the possession Birmingham had at times, they were forced sideways as a consequence of the wall Sow and Semedo present..
can't agree with Chic on Watson whilst his brain may be telling his legs where to go, they are incapable of doing so, when Carvalho comes back its easy to see Watson being the one sacrificed. Watson's distribution was equally lacking..
I am not a fan of Watson at all but he looked unhurried and didn’t miss a pass. It helped that Birmingham really didn’t provide a threat but he was fine yesterday. In fact he looked good. He’s not my choice for season regular but he looked tidy and not nasty and kicking people for the hell of it like last season.
well well well a team performance. Now it does help that the Blues Noses were dreadful but after cruising into the lead thanks to Lee Camp being rubbish we could have had a boat load. Even Tiago Silva and Rafa Mir looked very good. The scorpion attempt if it had gone in I would have been laughing all the way until May. Dawson was excellent. I worry that Semedo went off a little early. I hope Pogba lite isn't too buggered. Ben Watson was very good. I am starting to get worried he might not be sh!t.
The difference was Ameobi. He didn't score but he really is a difficult character to mark and he confused Brum enough to not really know what the hell to do with him. Lolley looked much less injured which is pleasing.
The effort was impressive and I thought Cash played very well.
Solid. Better. not horrid. That is an improvement.
Charlton and Fulham next. The latter I think will be the benchmark. They have only lost Sessennon. They also picked up knockhert which is worrying and they have that mad serb up front who is going to really test our centre backs.
ESPN has played our first three games. Much better than I-follow. I can only hope that this isn't a one off and Birmingham weren't just dreadful which of course they were but we worked hard so I give credit to the team.
IN case anyone was confused; Forest v's the Brum scum.
Nobody really knows our best team and we don't pass to the striker so is this a 0-0 in the making or do the Blue Nose FFP doping tw@t fiends have a good side? Seems they signed lots of players this season and also have Jefferson Montero from Swansea who might be the fasted player in the Championship. I am sure Matty Cash will enjoy this unless he is pushed up for some Jenkinson one legged action. Also who the fcuk is Pep Clotet? His name is Pep to start with so that should strike fear into someone! Although as a quick amendment they also have Lee Camp in goal so we can expect some kind of comedy which will keep it mildly interesting...
it could be 3-3 or 4-0 or 0-3 or I DON'T FCUKING KNOW! I do know this, I am apparently expecting us to win this 17-0 and if we don't then I will be cross and questioning the ambition of the NFFC board.
I am predicting that we may have one shot on target which will be nice.
Since I posted this on the wrong thread and also no-one has seen Romper Stomper I would repeat this ad nauseam...
Succession is back for a second season and since I haven’t finished the first season yet I better catch up. This is based loosely on the Murdoch family and after a slow start it really does pick up steam. The characters are so awful and craven you start to find them funny as their terrible behaviour starts to become parody.
The board room scene over the vote of no confidence is particularly amusing.
JETT finished its first season. It’s like Soderberg but on cracked. Fine fine stuff. Highly recommended and top totty too.
A while ago I recommended Perpetual Grace Ltd starring Ben Kingsley. It’s a work of genius. It’s like the best Coen brothers film and amplified. I haven’t seen all of it yet but it really is one of the funniest and unique shows I have ever seen. Highly highly triceratops television.
