  1. Losing 1-0 – I guess it’s cos there’s no defence and one huge midfield! :p

  2. Now 2-1 up – genius!

  3. Oh well we get a look at Obiang,and that’s our first team,what a crock
    Can’t wait to see the slimmed down traffic cone
    Can’t wait to watch the new lively centre forward BFS paid so much for,
    And the subs bench is inspirational,
    It’s a normal friendly team not a first team
    Where’s Zarate at the bank ?wheres Kouyate, ?wheres Payet as promised?
    And why why why Magia and Nolan,never mind COYI

    • So any problem we encounter would be Sam’s fault…. but if we do good its the new man…. come on Sam is gone leave it at that…..

  4. So no Downing in the squad, I presume he is finalizing the move to Boro then.

  5. Zarate is injured,thats why he never played on thursday.You want him out there on crutches,lol

  6. Hahaha,make your mind up bubs,yesterday you wanted to see cullen,oxford,lee & the others get a good run out today even though they are all with the europa squad,now you are moaning there aint enough first team players in the team,lol 😀

  7. No yesterday I said I would like to see the youngsters have a run plus have a look at Henry andHendrie of which both only made the bench,
    Plus you all told me how it was the first teams chance.
    Nolan great
    Magic great
    Sorry did not know Zarate is injured bow to your greater knowledge
    Sorry I was wrong Magia was a great buy well done Sam ( you keep your love for him )

  8. Most amazing thing to me is that Maiga is still with us. Presumably due to the fact that nobody in their right mind wants him. He gets in the way more than he contributes positively so why don’t we just pay him off and get rid of yet another Sam liability.

  9. Bloody hell your a grumpy old sod sometimes bubs,lol

  10. The Moaners and Groaners will always be around… its only a friendly

  11. There is 6 or 7 first team players or players who will be in & around the first team this season playing.We still have more friendlies for them to all get a go.It is only the first game of the season for them.What were people expecting,our starting Xl for the start of the prem to rock up today,lol

  12. Apparently Samuelson had a very good game. Even though he looks about 13 he might come into the mix if he continues to impress pre season and that would be a nice added bonus for the squad.

  13. Samuelsen (with an ‘e’ in the middle) seems to me is a somewhat forgotten talent here in Norway. The media is usually very proud of our countrymen, but there has been very little written about this guy. I saw a video of his playing skills featuring his development from 8 to 14 years, and have to say he looked pretty mindblowing in terms of technique and understanding of the game.

    He just might be our new babyfaced assassin, a real joker up Slav’s sleeve!

  14. Need more beer Baz,been on a diet ( thanks to Mrs B )which includes no beer or other alcohol,
    So I thought we needed a bit of friendly debating,
    Is Matte on the Figa trail again ?
    Has Spoonies medication kicked in ?
    Could be a great international for you Eriko and great capture for us ( fingers crossed)

  15. Hahaha,no beer bubs,that is a serious problem,lol,better get back to a lean mean fighting machine quick so you can get back on the sauce.Matte has his face in a bowl of figa atm i think & Spoonie has his face in a bowl of tranquilizers 😀
