  1. 100% penalty. Anywhere else on the pitch the ref would have given a free kick. We got away with that.
  2. Agreed. They are a better side than their league position suggests. Stoke have turned a corner and will climb the table, that was a good 3 points.
  3. Whatever brings the results is all that should matter. If we get enough points playing miserable football all season to see us finish top 6/promoted I don’t care what it looks like.
  4. Fantastic save from point blank range. He deserves huge credit for pulling that off
  5. You might want to get your glasses checked mate. Bannan’s hands were all over him inside the box. Stonewall penalty. If that was outside the box it would have been given as a free kick every day of the week.
  6. He was very fortunate to have not conceded a penalty too. It was a clear foul
  7. Cracking player and I hope the people at the club will be. To be honest it only underlines the quality and how terrible value for money players are in the English Championship.
  8. I’m going to pick two and avoid the obvious cup finals. The Orient 4-0 Wednesday game in League 1 because it was the first league away game I took my missus too. I’d been bigging up watching Wednesday away for ages and I can’t imagine what she must have thought afterwards. Dreadful game, poisonous atmosphere, embarrassing loss against a diddy team. A shameful day. Wednesday 0-3 Forest last game of the season 1989-90 because it was my first proper heartbreak moment. I’ll never forget my old man saying to me “you’ll have a lifetime of days like this son”. He was right.
  9. I don’t think it is an unrealistic expectation to win a home qualifier where we realistically have to if we want to finish top 2 in the group. No other result will do and the players are capable of getting that result and the bookmakers are offering similar odds for both teams to win. Yes the Russians got to a quarter final (in a home tournament) but they have lost 3 of their last 4 football matches away from home and our record at Hampden in competitive fixtures is actually very strong. We’ve only lost 5 times in the last 14 years in home qualifiers, 4 of those against top quality opposition. We rarely lose to teams like Russia at home. The defeats were a 2-3 loss to at the time world champions Germany, 0-1 to at the time world champions Spain, 1-2 to at the time world champions Italy, 0-2 against a superior Belgian side, and a disappointing 1-2 loss to the Welsh. I’m sure they won’t have any fear, and yes they’ve probably beaten better sides than Scotland, but equally we shouldn’t have any fear either. We’ve got results against much better teams than Russia in recent campaigns. Why shouldn’t we be optimistic?
  10. Naismith has been in really good form when fit. Hearts top scorer last season and POTY. If there’s anyone in that squad that you should be complaining about being in front of Fletcher it’s Phillips.
  11. I’ll be disappointed with anything other than 3 points against the Russians at Hampden. Belgium at home is a free hit, if we get anything out of that game it’s a bonus.
  12. Called up to the Scotland squad again. Congrats Liam. No place for Steven Fletcher amongst the forwards however. James Forrest, Ryan Fraser, Steven Naismith, Matt Phillips, Johnny Russell and Oli McBacon from the Lane get the call for the forward spaces.
  13. Man City supposedly looking at Hickey now mate. Not surprised in the slightest but the fee quoted in the press is atrocious.
  14. I was hoping for Bullen OUT... ...standing start to the season
  15. There is no room for sentiment in football. If the club wants to really progress then a new stadium with Premier League facilities and with improved revenue generating capability is definitely needed. And it’s not just the stadium infrastructure that needs money spent on it either. The Prem has moved on a lot since the 90s and our ground hasn’t. Where they money comes from is the question
