Re: BFC TRANSFER NEWS Jan 2020(MUST CONTAIN LINK)

When we get the points required for survival, I would like us to start playing three at the back. It makes sense as Dyche likes his centre backs and I trust his judgement completely in that position. With what we have now, Long can come in on the right or go with Bardsley until Sean gets someone els...

Re: Liverpool v Man U

The only physical contact you can have with a keeper is a shoulder charge or it used to be, so as soon as a keeper raises his arms any contact becomes a foul. I stand to be corrected if the laws concerning that have changed over the years.
