I've linked to my match reports a few times over the past few weeks. If it's OK, I will just update this thread every time I write a new one.

Anyway, here's todays report on the victory over Fulham: http://www.thefootballnetwork.net/main/s115/st170550.htm

Excellent read that. Like you i saw the henry and dempsey aftermath. No idea what happened there, just saw johnson run over and pull henry away but henry did go back afterwards and did seem to talk to him with no malice from my view.

Dempsey was lucky to not get booked or sent off with his little spats at the end of the game. He was constantly throwing both hands at Henry, around his head. Henry was getting pissed off and then they went to each other after the whistle, presume to sort it out. Squared up and some shoving and Johnson ran over and dragged Henry away. They shook hands after

If anyone is interested, here are my thoughts on today's shambolic performance. One man was to blame, and he wasn't wearing Old Gold

Good read Toomb, Mick certainly chose a way of using 4-4-2 that played into OPRs hands.
Strange that he didn't change our system to allow us to compete.

What would you have done KK?

I would have bought Milijas on instead of Vokes and Hunt instead of Guedioura.

Toomb gives good options within his match report, and how to play against QPR.
What would i do, within a 4-4-2 i would play a midfield diamond, then use split strikers on either side.
If i was Mick i would delegate more, listen to Terry Connor, not be so hands on.

Got to able to see a pass and complete it, to do that.
I agree the rigid 4-4-2 is old hat these days

thats a very good read, especially the bit about the defensive line, berra and johnson, don't posses alot of pace from what i've seen, so why they play the offside trap let alone a high one is beyond me, as if it fails the striker is in and behind like suarez' goal today

Thanks.

I was so pleased when they took Suarez off, his pace was causing us all sorts of problems defensively

Good read thanks.
I dont think English fans realise how big a club Partick Thistle was a century back.
So many quality players and managers coming from that region of Glasgow.
Most notable for most would be Alan Hanson.

Here's a quick question for those that dont know.

How much do you think Alan Hanson gets paid for pundit work on MOTD, per show.

The corporation used more than £2,000 a week of taxpayers' money chauffeuring Match of the Day presenters home to the North East and Merseyside in taxis rather than saving money by getting the train or staying overnight in the capital.

Alan Shearer, Alan Hansen and Mark Lawrenson are driven hundreds of miles once the show finishes recording at BBC Television Centre in Shepherd's Bush every Saturday night, rather than getting the train or spending the night in the capital.

It costs £580 to drive Shearer almost 300 miles one way from London to his house near Newcastle and £470 to drive Alan Hansen more than 200 miles from London to Merseyside.
