|Blog ||Racism Within Football|
at 16:23 23 Oct 2031
There has been much discussion in recent times about racism within football, and as a football fan I think it’s important that these more political issues aren’t ignored and so recent events have prompted me to put over my view on the problems.
|Can someone give me their views on this...|

I think I'm right in saying Jason Scotland the centre forward under Martinez for Swansea. Do you think we missed a trick by not really doing something similar, Scotland is a link up player in my opinion and I dont think we utilised him well enough in terms of him holding the ball and us getting wingers around him. Maybe Emmanuel-Thomas and Martin could have really flourished in this way with balls into Scotland's feet but Scotland was sometimes bought on in the Chopra role or in a 4-4-2 where balls just sailed over his head. Feel free to put me in my place.
|Anyone else missing @HarryfromBath's notes....|
at 16:11 15 May 2013
I'm already missing his pre-match notes about our ourselves and our opponents, thought they were a real positive on here and alot of people seemed to enjoy them. Thought maybe we could come up with a couple of suggestions through pre-season to keep it boiling? Was thinking maybe he could do notes about perceptions on players we sign from former clubs? e.g Skuse from Bristol City fans. Something similar could be what other Championship sides think about their signings around July/August time? so we can look back and see if their first impressions were right or not. Obviously its up to Harry whether he has the time and whether he wants to himself, don't want to force it upon him!
|Just a few things that |
at 18:40 12 May 2013
A few things I've heard today and over the last month
Sunderland- A few boos ring round after a draw with Southampton
Newcastle- Is Pardew the man to take the club forward?
Fulham- Martin Jol has to go
Norwich- Hughton plays direct he has to go
West Ham- Allardyce plays direct has to go
Stoke- Pulis has taken us as far as he can
I know this isn't the exact consensous for each team and maybe the points are understandable but where do all these sides realistically think they can finish? Is there no appreciation whatsoever nowadays? Find it a bit astounding but maybe I should just get with the modern era.
|A win for fluid football|
at 21:50 11 May 2013
The two cup winning managers (Laudrup and Martinez) play an exciting, expansive brand of football and deserve the success they've had through it.Too many English coaches do not set their teams up to play this way. Other examples, Zola does, Poyet does, both Foreign also. McManaman wouldn't play like that if he got called up for England because he wouldn't be given the freedom , we play Milner who runs up and down the wing. It's perhaps why Maloney and McCarthur don't play that well for Scotland, because they dont play like that, thats why Wales did so well under the late Gary Speed because of his bravery to try and play a fluid system and the players took on the ideas. We need to encourage teams to play like this more often if we want things to move forward in this country footballling wise and particularly internationally.
|Luke McCormick rejoins Plymouth, how would you react?|
at 13:46 10 May 2013
Released from prison midway through his 7 year sentence after causing the death of two brothers through drink driving he has recently joined former club Plymouth on a one-year deal. If a player who had commited an offence on a similar scale and agreed to join us, would you...
1). Say the player has served his time and that he has to move on with his life and support him
2). Be against the player joining the club
