Re: Dwight in the 34th minute today and why we were able to beat Liverpool

Thank you for your observations, lads. It's clear he's worked hard on this aspect of his game which he had to in order to meet the requirements of wingers in today's game. Fair play to the lad. It speaks volumes about his attitude.

Dwight in the 34th minute today and why we were able to beat Liverpool

I have now seen just under 65 minutes (55 against DL and seven today) of our lads on TV this season. Didn't realise our game was being shown on a channel I had. Due to...family issues, I only managed about seven minutes this afternoon but got lucky. I saw Jack put in a superb cross and Jay hammer th...

Re: ARTICLE: Barrow move for Thomas

It's clear SD believes in him. He's better, far better, playing in L2 than in the U23s with all due respect to allthe players who play in that league. One can but presume he WILL be playing regularly (if he plays well enough, of course).

Good luck, Bobby.

It's one in, one out. On the other hand it's not none in three out.

The news on Ben is very positive and he will be the biggest boost for the team because he's not just a top player but he's our captain and ambassador. I think we have a lot of top lads in our squad but Ben is crucial.
