  1. Played well and worked hard today, but also took a touch too many when set up which an out and out striker would have buried.
  2. RIP big man. You gave us belief in our darkest hour, always a legend in my eyes.
  3. Don't understand why Boyd is always the whipping boy. FF played a central role and it was way too congested (and he was supplying nothing) there with the Blunts 3 centre backs. When Boyd came on he worked both flanks and dragged the centre backs out with him, creating space for Fletcher and the non existent (except for Hutchinson) runners from midfield (how we miss Lee). Not all good football is played with the ball.
  4. Don't I recall he played right back at Chelsea. In my opinion that's where we are weakest (both left and right). Perhaps Sam could do a job for us there.
  5. Start my final week in uniform next week. I joined in 1976 and have served 32 years regular and nearly ten years full time Reserve service. Never had a proper job and now I never will as I'm going to become a golf pro. if I win every competition I enter I've worked out I could make twenty seven quid a week. Not sure what our lass is going to do for shoes from here on in, but looking forward to being able to go to,Tuesday night games.
  6. He's had a good game and it is against Celtic, who are not League 1 standard.
  7. Tavernier at right back looking useful today Steveger - any good?
  8. Hutchinson at right back may be forced upon us, but could be a good thing. I think this is one of our weaker positions and Hutch started life as a RB. Allows Jones to play holding role in midfield, gives us more height at the back and would also allow a little more freedom for an Abdi/FF role further forward.
  9. I live 4 miles from Huddersfield and the wife was kept awake by an owl last night - hopefully a good omen.
  10. In the Town end with my mate who's a town fan, he'll be on the North with me on Wednesday. Go to these fixtures together every year. A few years ago the cheeky sod started a Jones out chant on the North.
  11. Forestieri all over the pitch as always, a class above anyone else on the park. I agree with wickersleyowl, Lopez had an excellent game, finding space where others couldn't.
  12. We conceded because Hunt was beaten in the air. Despite the fact that he can look good going forward I think right back is our weakest position. Hutch reckons it's his best position. Wouldn't mind seeing him slot in there and see if it steadies our defence a bit more.
  13. Secret city only known to Germans is ausfahrt. All roads signpost it, but try finding the place on a map!
  14. Best result would be a riot and both teams deducted 20 points!
  15. Hope Huddersfield run Reading ragged tonight.
  16. Apologies, just corrected my post from Pudil to Hunt! Didn't know how to edit! IT tailface! Also hit a green up button in the process! Someone please neg to clear it.
  17. I thought their centre back pairing looked really strong throughout the match and even big Dave was being bullied by them. It was no coincidence that Hanley was on the floor at the other end of the field when we scored our equaliser. Maybe sometimes we need to respect the opposition a bit more. For much of the game they were stronger in the tackle than us and first half (in the very worst of the weather conditions when both sides were playing ariel ping pong) they bossed us. As well as the half time changes the conditions improved and both teams were able to get the ball down a bit more, which suited us. Big credits to our defence (except defending corners) as in open play I didn't see much of Rhodes or Ben 10, and second half Pudil was able to get forward more in support (once he had Wallace to help him out).
  18. Without Carlton's legs we could never have afforded to play Sheridan. He did the running, covered the hard miles to give Sheridan the space to cut defences apart. As well as the playmakers every team needs a ball winner and a runner (World Cup 66 Stiles and Ball) - Carlton was both rolled into one.
  19. Palmer had two players to mark on a regular basis as Maghoma gave him no support. Plenty of full backs will be skinned by Ben Marshall before this season is over. I thought Palmer was one of our better players. I also agree with Bez about Lee, was everywhere and if a few of our players could read a game better they would have been put in by him, problem is he's going to look better only if he plays with better players. Enjoyed your company Bez. thought overall it was a decent performance against a side with some dangerous front men.
