  1. Never saw him play sadly, but went to one of his stage shows - an audience with Jimmy Greaves - after his playing career ended. I distinctly remember how, after the show, he spent ages signing books, autographs, chatting with all and sundry - I think he enjoyed it as much, if not more, than the audience. RIP Greavsie
  2. Looked rather like he couldn’t be bothered yesterday. Unless Moore gets a grip, we’ll have another Izzy Brown scenario unfolding
  3. Yes, it’s not great - but we’re less than 20% through the season. Players are still developing an understanding of each other’s strengths and weaknesses. Things will improve as the season progresses. Id like it if we were in pole position at the top of the League, obviously, but Mo Farah wasn’t always in front on the first lap. Keep the faith
  4. I think the lesson to be clearly learnt from this is to eat before you set off for the game if at all possible
  5. I accept that the team are still getting to know each other, but It’s the lack of tempo and urgency that is of most concern IMHO
  6. Really hope he starts - you don’t need to be a soccer “ expert pundit” to realise that he’s been missed in recent games
  7. Perhaps they’re waiting to see if we sell the original allocation first ?
  8. We’re still very much a Work In Progress. The Plymouth performance and result should be telling people that we haven’t made as much progress as we might have believed prior to that game
  9. Early days - but it seems that picking up Andros Townsend on a free transfer might prove to be a master stroke as the season unfolds
  10. Anyone but Bannan basically - surprised that DM hasn’t sorted this yet
  11. Yes, but I’m not sure yet that we fall into that category.
  12. “ A nothing club” - let’s hope the players didn’t have that attitude pre kick off
  13. I suppose they probably wanted to see if they could get home supporters to take up those seats - when they realised they weren’t going to, they thought they might as well let us have them, rather than let them remain unsold. Cant say I blame them for that TBH.
  14. He’s about as much use as the proverbial chocolate teapot because of his abysmal fitness record while he’s been here - we’ve a stronger squad now with more options, so IMHO, it’s no bad thing to let him go and move on.
  15. Probably time to move him on and take what fee we can get for him. Yes, he’s a good player, but he’s about as much use as a chocolate teapot with his poor fitness record.
  16. It’s a bit early in the season to start thinking about promotion - but, just to put things into perspective, a lot of the doom and gloom merchants on here several months ago didn’t think we would be able to even start the season !
  17. Bit of a reality check - which can’t be a bad thing - it’s know it’s a cliche, but it’s how we respond and bounce back that is key
  18. Hope you’re right obviously - but when that is a possibility, the selling club usually imply that by referring to it as an “initial allocation” - Plymouth don’t seem to have done that here.
  19. Putney is a decent enough place to stay for a few days - definitely preferable to Kingston IMHO. If you’ve ever been to Craven Cottage, you’ll probably already be familiar with Putney, which is just the other side of the river.
  20. If Moore has decided he has no place in his plans, then I’ll run with that at the moment, I’m inclined to back DM so far - let’s hope he’s got it right here
  21. I don’t think he’s a shocking player - it’s just that his rashness and poor decision making can make him a bit of a liability at times
