    Keogh has been terrible this season so far. He was excellent last season.
    He deserves critisim, along with about 9 others. Lowe and Tomori were equally as shocking yesterday. 
    What I don’t like is when people scapegoat Keogh, because he’s the easy target.

    CWC1983 got a reaction from ronnieronalde in Burton Albion Watch 18/19   
    @ronnieronalde
    Cheers, you've pretty much nailed Templeton on the head. Loads of talent when he was young but made a terrible career choice by going to Rangers and wasted 2 season's. He's never really recovered, but if Nigel can get him to knuckle down then there's an exciting player in there. Good comparison with McGuire.
    Boyce: Aberdeen started a membership scheme pre season and said any money raised would be spent on transfers. As of yet, the club has raised circa £1m and spent zero. Theres pressure from the fans to spend before 31st. Mciness said last night he has 2 irons in the fire and the obvious gap in the squad is a lack of a goalscorer.  
    To be honest, I dont think we would spend £1m on a player, and it doesnt sound like Boyce fancies Scotland again, unless Celtic comes calling, which they wont. 
    All the best for the coming season 👍

    Already criticising after one game when players are new.
    Holmes and Evans seemingly being disregarded by saying brining in new players without them given a chance.
    We have the most ridiculous link with Odegarrd and one poster here is now saying he's our central midfield answer. Let me tell you guys, brining in another kid into the centre mid isn't going to solve the problems.
    We have to give this formation and certain players time to impose themselves. I'm not sure if Huddlestone, Ledley, Evans (as I don't know him) or Thorne are the right players but we need to try and coach the players as to what we want. I don't recall there being many issues with gaps in the midfield when Mac was playing this formation so it does work with the right personnel.
    It is not a disaster after one game. Give the team time.
    What is critical for me though is that Lampard gets the guys in the team who he genuinely thinks will be in the team in 2-3 months time. I don't think this will be Ledley or Johnson or Lowe so let's get the new guys in now.

    You're spot on David.
     
    Signs of unrest again today with a couple of them nearly fighting each other and ME getting told to sit down ******** sit down see you next Tuesday. Which might please and certainly won't surprise some of you.
    Scot Fraser our "big" summer signing (free transfer big) goes down injured off the ball, writing in absolute agony the three subs go out to warm up including bucko. 
    Some bright spark stand up shouting duck off Clough and take that useless see you next Tuesday Buxton with you
    I make the loud comment that it's a good job you can't get arrested for being stupid and all hell breaks loose. 
    I really, reallu, really dislike Burton Albions "Burton boys" thick as pig poo and with about the same level of class.
     
    It's either going to be a very long and tough season for me personally, you all know I won't sir or stand quietly by and of course that makes me a target.
    It's a tough life being a Nigel Clough bum boy.

    FFS, I'm getting really tired of saying this. Our support is really no different to the vast majority of other clubs. Whilst I never leave early, I bet the majority of stadiums would have emptied to a similar extent when your team is 4:1 down at home.

    15 years! Burton bred, a local lad that worked his socks off for a career in pro football. Tough tackling bruiser might just find and deserve his break at Oxford.
    Sincerely hope he does well, I’d be proud to have this lad as my kid watching him play. 100%er whatever anyone thinks of his position or skill level.

    This life. 
    It was a BBC2 drama series about trainee lawyers in the 90's, that became a bit mainstream by the 3rd series. It did sum up the 90's however but looks a bit dared now.  
    A lot of the cast went onto bigger and better things.

    Dont be surprised if that eventually happens. The black ops story might grow arms and legs and FIFA could use that solution as a compromise to appease everyone.

    CWC1983 reacted to UttoxeterRam83 in Martyn Waghorny - Signed on a 3 year deal   
    Hi All, i have been having a read of this forum for a while and thought i would finally stop being an anti social twit and sign up. Personally, i think Waghorn will be a decent signing adding goals and assists. As for us having a high number of strikers on the books, i think we will see a couple leave this week on loan. Martin being one along with Blackman. And we might possibly see Nugent leave on a permanent deal to Sheff Utd. I rate Nugent but his legs are going and Waghorn will do the same type of job. I have just seen that WBA have signed Gale on loan. WBA have just upped their promotion chances. At least Stoke didn't get him.

    Best thing about this weekend is seeing possible promotion rivals draw and we picked up 3 points. Early wins builds confidence and the pretty football will come.
    Get to the top of the league early and it gives us something to hold onto.

    I think you misread the post. I was highlighting the fact regarding how far the Scots (Aberdeen boys) had got on in the World Cup, as the locals always insist on how lucky England are, as they always end up in the easy qualification groups, with the irony being that Scotland were in the same easy group this time around, and still failed to get out of it.

    And if I spent the same money on all the football tops that beat Scotland like the locals do on the teams that beat England I'd be a very skint man!

    Sorry mate, been away for a week. 
    As soon as Rangers were liquidated the main stream press went overboard on Armageddon for Scotish football. The hacks were hell bent on creating mass panic amongst the clubs to try to get them to tow the party line and accept  the new Rangers into the SPL. (Think Brexit.....) They trotted out the same line as you regarding lost revenue. 
    The fans of the other SPL clubs basically told their boards " If you let Rangers back in to the SPL, say goodbye to your season tickets. " It was all about sporting integrity. 
    For once, the fans had some power, and as soon as the clubs voted to reject Rangers application, the fans of the other clubs stayed true to their word and rallied round and bought additional season tickets / merchandise. Most clubs had record sales that season. I bought one and attended 1 game all season. 
    Clubs didnt miss 3 games against Rangers. At most it was 2, because the home club keeps the revenue. The big crowds at Ibrox and Parkhead only benefit the old firm. Clubs also found that the reduced policing costs and reduced maintenance costs of non Rangers games was beneficial. 
    Believe it or not, when the old firm come to town there is a fair chunk of people who wont go to the games with their children because of the religious rubbish and disorder that follows them.
    People started coming back to games, to the extent that Hearts, Hibs, Aberdeen have reduced the away allocation to Celtic and Rangers in the past 2 years. 
    Prior to Rangers getting liquidated the majority of the clubs were heavily in debt. Since then, the majority are debt free.   
    The old firm duopoly prior to liquidation was killing the game. In all honesty, the only club that misses Rangers are Celtic, because if both clubs are strong then their boards can play to the sterotypes and push the sectarian crap to the drongo's. Take a look at Rangers 2nd strip this season as evidence. 
    This season Hearts Hibs Kilmarnock Aberdeen have record ticket sales and someone quoted the figure of 1 in 7 people in Scotland have a season ticket. 
    The attendances over the last couple of years indicate that Scotland Premier league has the 1st or 2nd best % of attendances against population in Europe. 
    All in all, Scotish football is in the healthiest state since the mid 80's, and the turning point was Rangers getting caught cheating with the EBT's. Basically they were living outwith their means and suffered the consequences. 
    Quite ironic today when QPR get a slap on the wrist for living outwith their means. 
    There was so much stuff not getting reported down south around the time of the liquidation that I can understand peoples perception that the game would die without Rangers. All it did was give the game a kick up the arse, and if anything brought clubs and fans together. To me that's a good thing.
