  1. To be fair to forest, they had to sign a number as they lost dome players. 20 does seem a lot though. Remember last season's cup game though!
  2. If he carries on playing as well as he is, he may end up in a red shirt.... 💣🤣
  3. I know of a vineyard just in Worcestershire that has accommodation. Lovely place and a lovely drop too. Not cheap mind.
  4. Yes, absolutely. But in general, we don't fully know in the lower leagues what qualities the players have, nor the full resources. Kinell, until perhaps this season or maybe half way into last year, we didn't jave two coins to rub together, but a good gaffer got us up with rejects and lower league players. I really do believe that at this level, a good manager, coaches and scouts counts for a hell of a lot, and perhaps more than the financial resources at a club. At the top of the pile, the ability to spend absolute bucket loads seems to help a bit more, though clearly without guarantees.
  5. I hate the term over achievers. Clubs are there on merit. Whether they stay there will only be known in the fullness of time. By what criteria can you assess a team's capability before the season kicks off, unless you've made genuine efforts to look at each club's players etc? After 10 or 11 games, some semblance of placings may be emerging, but how are Plymouth over achieving given their performances last season? Fwiw, as well as we are doing at the moment, we need to improve in the final third and be a bit more ruthless. Do that, and pick up some wins against those around us and I'd be confident that automatic promotion is very much on. At the moment, I'm not so sure- the Wednesday game still lingers.
  6. Was saying this to my brother. At 2-0, city has missed 2 or 3 good chances too, and we said it could have been 5 before half time. Then they got to 4 and I was thinking "will they go for it". Probably a bit much to expect I suppose.
  7. Got to say, what a wonderful throw in it was. Followed by a quick one two and bang. I reckon the full backs eyes are as bad as mine.
  8. Saw this come through last night and thought "what in Indonesia!" Repeated mistakes from historic games.
  9. Maybe it's their Icelandic supporters club.
  10. Bang on. Long range pass all along the deck, for Bradley. Absolute wanking tackle.
  11. They did both work very hard. Often doing similar things. Just don't dovetail for me though. Whether that would get better the more they played together I don't know, but I like the craft, intelligence and aerial prowess of Bod as a compliment to Charles' strengths.
  12. No idea. Without all other team members being the same though, such analysis has its limits. We've won every game Thomason has started for example, but that doesn't mean we'd have beaten Wednesday if he'd been playing. If Bod is fit, he starts alongside Charles for me.
  13. Loads of stewards and police outside the away end afterwards- whatever the number, they weren't taking chances.
  14. Agreed. May have been clipped, but seemed to be looking for it. Not in his most natural best form- he had a great chance to shoot later on too, but insisted on coming back onto his right foot. It'll come though. One criticism I had, which was shared by Evatt, was perhaps the final pass not always being as good as it could be. Get that right and he'll be on the end of more chances and the goals will flow.
  15. Dunno, but there's is a ufo under the stand roof. Looks a bit like a crown too.
  16. Again, I thought he went down to easily. May have been contact, I don't know, but it just didn't look right from my viewpoint.
  17. Practicing for the rugby International. It did go 'between' the sticks.
  18. Traf pretty much next to me thought he dropped too. Guess we were pretty much in a line and the shirt pull was slightly obscured. The fall seemed dramatic too. Well done to the linesman and the ref for listening- credit where its due there.
  19. Watch the highlights. Clear shirt pull and penalty.
  20. Just seen sky's attempts at highlights. I know it wasn't the absolute best, but there were moments to justify more than this meagre offering. At least they do show that it was a stone wall penalty- couldn't see the shirt pull live, but clear as day on the highlights.
  21. Solid performance, and a bit frustrating at times. First half we didn't find it easy to open them up, and when we did we didn't make the most of our chances. Second half we created more, clear cut chances, and again squandered some. At 1-0 I was wary as it seemed they might nick something having created very little. Fortunately the second secured the points, and that one chance you felt might come their way was brilliantly saved by Trafford. Defence was again solid and Johnston man of the match for me. Kachunga worked hard, chased some balls down, but to no great effect. He fell inndirect debits fornthe penalty which from wherewe were looked a shite dive. Can only assume the lino saw a tug. Also a lack of understanding at times with Charles- the sitter he put across the goal for EK wasn't read and consequently missed. Lincoln were another team trying to fight us and knock us off our stride, but we stood up to it well. Throughly deserved, if unspectacular victory.
  22. One day.. A theoretical situation: We're 5-0 up and get a penalty in the last minute. Charles steps up with a chance for his hat trick. What are you hoping for
  23. During their previous sponsorship deal, there was an advert where there were fleeting glimpses of our player(s). I think I can remember who was on, but not so sure- can anyone else remember who it was.
