    Diouf

    Blimey is this bloke for real: In his previous autobiography, published in 2007, Gerrard described Diouf as a lazy and self-interested character. "His attitude was all wrong," Gerrard wrote at the time. "I felt he wasn't really a***d about putting his body on the line to get Liverpool back at...

    What phil should learn from Plymouth game

    Wycombe outplayed Plymouth for the most part in both their semi-final games. I know Phil will have been looking at the tape over the last week and trying to learn something from it. I think the fans of most clubs can see what when wrong when they lose. From a Plymouth point of view they are...

    Payne

    So we know Payne gets a years extension to his contract now for playing 10 games. Some say he is being marked out of games now as teams work him out. Brown says it's a compliment that teams do this and I agree. What this also means is Payne's off the ball runs are going to be marked more...

    Pairs of strikers

    This is probably quite an out of fashion idea but I have always favoured having pairs of strikers on the pitch. It is based on a 4-4-2 formation rather than some modern 4-1-3-1-1 idea (although I remember when 4-4-2 was rather new). You have 2 strikers on who know each other and how they play...
  6. Don't do it Ron

    Don't offer Phil any new contract ! His style of football has no place in the modern game as its dull tedious and awful,His philosophy of nicking 1 0 wins is daft to say the least.We are devoid of any attacking ideas as Phil's stupid tactic has been found out. Shaq could score 5 own goals and...

  8. Heading the ball

    With the latest studies suggesting constant heading of the ball can be dangerous I would like to see all under 16 games having headers outlawed. I introduced sponge balls to training sessions 4 year's ago as I did not want the under 11s attacking the ball which had normally been pumped to...
  9. If only

    If only Roy had gone for it! Watched the quarter finals with no stand out side and every game tedious,I still think England could have beaten any of the last 8 if they had played all out attacking football. Brazil Argentina Germany and Holland all look fairly average.
  10. football rumours site

    22 Jun 2014 12:09:56 Two new signings to be revealed next week according to an inside source. One is from Conference North and one from the Conference. No names but one is a wide player and the other an attacking midfielder. It also appears that the new stadium plans are almost certainly now...

    Group A - Brazil, Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon

    Group A, the group of the host nation, and possibly even the favourites. It seems that the draw has been kind to Brazil, and they will be expected to qualify from the group easily. The battle for second place and qualification to the next round will be close, with all three of the other teams...
  12. Do we have any chance ?

    Don't mean going up. of course we have a chance, typical of our play over the last 5 season. Impressive results & performances especially away from home against strong teams. Followed by inept home results against weak opponents. Will always be there or there abouts while in this league. No, my...

    Signing for Swansea on a free transfer - SMS Not exactly the shock of the century is it?!
  14. Ben Greenhalgh

    The guy who won Football next star on sky, playing for Concord, has a great set piece delivery, can beat a player & his crossing is very good indeed. He has certainly made quite a difference down at Thames Rd, & could well play higher. Could be a great feed for Barry Corr like he has done for...
  15. After our win at Rochdale on Saturday.....................

    Been down after the last weeks results , and the obvious reaction on here last night and today. So in order to redress the balance slightly and introduce a bit of a positive slant during these dark days , I thought I would start this one based on our 3-0 away win at Rochdale on Saturday. Wow ...
  16. Help Please

    I have had a team going since Dec 07. I've ignored it for a couple of years and have finally broken through to England League IV. Not doing too badly and looks like i'll stay up. However, My key players are getting old and i'm not sure what to do. Any thoughts what I should do from here...

    All we are saying.....is give Straker a chance.

    I appreciate I am in a minortiy here but I really feel that the side would benefit from having a better athlete than Barker going down the left. I like Barker to a large degree but our left side is nothing short of appauling when going forward. I dont think Barker is bad when he goes forward...

    2nd Half Should we.....

    Choice of Ends. I appreciate that this will not be popular with the South Standers amongst you but given the fact that we have large noisey support behind the Northn now would it not make more sense to start attacking the North Bank in the 2nd half. Cant help but feel last night that having...

    Strikers..

    A couple of weeks ago we were all very aware that a goalkeeper and CM player with bite..were required. We still need to bolster the midfield. There were few alarm bells around defensive or attacking options. On paper we look okay both at the back and upfront. However, there seems an issue about...
  20. Attacking or Defensive minded midfielder needed?

    Its clear that we need to bring in a midfielder or two perhaps. Lots of talk about whats happened to Brogan and Spicer but do we need an attacking midfielder to feed the strikers or a defensive midfielder to provide cover at the back? From being at Tuesday nights game I'm sure everyone will...
