  1. Meaningless Stat

    What is it with this obsession by the media of a manager's "win percentage"? Don't they realise that this figure only shows part of the story. An example (if indeed we should need one):- Manager A. 20 games as manager, Won 10 Lost 10. Win % 50%. Manager B. 20 games as manager, Won 8 Drawn 8...

    Brexit to create 30,000 jobs

    Great news, my patriotic friends! The great Brexit gamble is set to create 30,000 British jobs for British* people! The EU have only 24,000 of these jobs currently so that's one in the eye for Juncker and his cronies. These jobs are set to come about in the civil service to implement the...

    Can we sneak a top 6 spot?

    After a great win today, and a win that's put us in the cluster outside the play offs. Is it possible we can finish top 6. There are a lot of factors. We need players fit and injury free and we definately need to have a good transfer window. There are probably 3 or 4 at least that need to be...

    Today was our best 11 IMO

    I personally feel that brown had his best 11 players out there today and it just goes to show, it's been a long time coming but that 11 are capable of holding their own and beating most teams in this league . It's a no brainier but Ranger is the key to where's we finish this season - IF he...

    Question Bury v Southend : Last Season

    Probably just me, but I never realized until the other night that our game at Bury last season resulted in them being deducted 3 points for fielding an ineligible player and we jumped above them in the league to finish 14th. Question is, why didn't we get the three points!?

    How many games does Brown have to end the rut

    The question is pretty simple. After Ron had a little meeting with Phil, how many games does he have before changes are made? Currently the team has lost seven of their last eight matches and is currently on a six game losing run. I know it is one game into the season but last years finish was...
  12. Should British Police be armed.

    With news that German police have shot dead an axe wielding Afghani, who attacked people on a train, coming so quickly after the murders in Nice. Is it time we had more armed police in Britain. By all accounts had the lorry in Nice managed to continue a bit further down the road he would have...

  15. Who will be the crock this time ??

    The club will surely continue with their usual sign an old injury plagued on the downward spiral player probably chucking a 2 year deal in his direction,like the many before it never works. Currently they are trying to persuade Noel to remain:stunned::nope: Who do you reckon will be the next...

  17. Research on Policing at Football

    Dear all, Given that research is finding a more sanitised and gentrified culture of British football (see: https://www.academia.edu/18862556/Football_Fans_Views_of_Violence_in_British_Football_Evidence_of_a_Sanitized_and_Gentrified_Culture) , I am hoping you could spare a few minutes to share...

  20. Our own Worst Enemy

    I wonder how many of us actually thought we'd finish in the top half of the table when the season began? have we as fans got carried away by the period of good results we had towards the end of the year and early part of this year? it its arguable that Wycombe deserved to be promoted off the...
