  1. Outfield players in goal

    Which outfield players have had to go in goal? I'm sure there's been one in recent memory. Also I remember when Donovanr Ricketts was sent off (and the racism claims) and Dean Windass went in goal and played pretty well. I love it when it happens.:smile:

    "You don't win anything with Kids"

    I will probably get shot down for this, but hey it's a football forum for debates after all. So back to the topic of my thread, as a famous football pundit infamously once said "You don't win anything with kids" and to a certain extent, this is sadly very true. In fairness, Paul Sturrock is...
  3. Is it the poor home form

    I have a thought on the so called nerves at home that gives the team the poor home stats . When we play away with such freedom .Is it that the playing surface on other grounds is better than at Rootshall .The pitch at the hall isnt at its best .The goalmouths look like a muddy bog and lots of...
  4. No Keeper On The Bench

    Since Luke Daniels left,we have not had a goalie in the 5 subs. But Bilel has been on the bench for the last 2 matches. Am I right in thinking that PS considers Mohsni to be our sub-keeper as well as covering most of the outfield positions?

    Plodding Snore-fest Is No Reason For Complacency

    Algeria 0-1 Slovenia ENGLAND SHOULDN’T TAKE THESE TWO TEAMS FOR GRANTED An awful game, bereft of class and style, but if England fans think that they can relax, they should think again. There was just enough in this strangely compelling display of mutual ineptitude to concern Fabio...

    Don't Make A Whipping Boy Of Green

    Even as I type these words, I can hear the scraping of a thousand knives being hastily sharpened in the offices of England’s national newspapers. By the time I’ve hit ‘send’ on my email, be assured that this country’s sports editors will have plunged them all into Rob Green’s back. Football can...

    2010 season

    Ah, spring training. The sound of rubber or cork wrapped in yarn and covered with leather thumping into leather mitts or the rifle crack of corked ash. Ahhh. There is something magical about the phrase "pitchers and catchers report". It sounds so innocent but at the same time so alluring. I'm...
  8. Question Tilson Out?

    Everyone's entitled to their opinion. But thankfully some people on here are not running the club. Otherwise, we'd have lost arguably the best management team we've ever had. I don't think even the most optimistic person at the end of January could have predicted the run we've been on after...

    Football Boots

    Guys and girls, I need your help on what football boots I should get next. I'm looking at Adidas Predators as I always wear them. Tried Nike Legends before and didn't like them at all. I've narrowed it down to 2 choices. Please bear in mid, I'm a goalkeeper and the kit I wear it red top, black...
  10. Bristol Rovers G/Keeper Yellow card

    I know it was a while ago but there was so much confusion (including mine) over whether the keeper for deliberately handling the ball outside of his area should have got a red or yellow card. I e-mailed Graham Poll in the Daily Mail and this was his response: Thanks for your question. The answer...
  11. Ref Watch Referees and things .....

    The general tirade of abuse directed towards the, on this occasion, hapless Mr Ward seems to have run over a couple of threads so I'll put my response in a seperate one. Whilst most of the criticism is undoubtedly justified, there is included amongst it, a number of inaccuracies and...

    Zone Update Doesn't look like anyone's coming in...

    From the Echo Brushey "reveals" we will be looking to bolster our 16 man outfield squad with loan signings. However, it is unlikely that there will be much movement until after the Premier league starts as they will then have a better idea of what players they want to send out. Also we are...

    The fbm report - Bristol Rovers

    Neither myself or Matt have had the chance to upload this yet, so I'm putting it on the forum for the moment. BLUES CLUELESS AS ROVERS RETURN WITH POINTS Southend produced one of the worst displays in recent times as they slumped to yet another home defeat – this time to a lowly and very...

    First test v Sri Lanka at Kandy

    I hear Agnew reckons there will be a fair bit in it for Harmison or Anderson, based on the nets. Having been out to the middle this lunchtime I'm not so sure. Whilst the square is nice and green and the nets had a green tinge, the pitch they are going to use doesn't. I haven't been able to do...
  19. Rob Newman

    On the Bench for injury hit Bournmouth this afternoon!!!! They only have 13 fit outfield players so Newman is on the bench as emergency cover!
