    Match Thread Preston v Millwall

    Nope. I actually checked it not believing they were that daft! They all agreed he had the freedom to attack to his heart's content but added "He ain't an attacking fullback though is he. He is a great at the defensive side but not a jot on Darnell.." I don't know about Darnell but they are right...

    Incidentally IIRC the "other" Matt Smith quite fancies himself at football and was captain of the Leicester City Youth team until some serious spinal injuries ruled him out of a career.

    Well oddly enough given his general rep I've long been happier about his defending than I am as an "over-lapping full back".

    I still have nightmares of watching the young Francis taking Harry to the cleaners at Birmingham in his first season. Christ it was embarrassing.

    Absolutely! He deserves a more adventurous manager frankly.

    I've noticed Brad move about a bit up front. God knows to what point mind you but he does try.

    Reminds me of the time Alan West came out for the warmup, discovered it was raining and retreated to the dressing room.

    I think I'd rather he was on the bench than Bod but there we are. I can't really envisage any circs in which I'd put Bod on!

    Match Thread Preston v Millwall

    He played really well against Luton and I hoped he was turning a corner. So not having bought into the general opinions in the first place I haven't given up hope. But I'd like us to be keeping an eye on possible cover/replacements

    Today's Line Up - an explanation

    Oddly enough I once caused untold trouble by suggesting that this and the Benin Bronzes were useful lessons in the foolishness of fighting a losing war.

    In the 3rd Punic Wars between Rome and Carthage this bloke Cato the Censor (no not that sort of Censor!) was always banging on about "delenda est Carthago" (Carthage must be destroyed). Not subjugated, made to pay reparations, give up territory - just destroyed. Eventually Rome destroyed the...
