  1. Really liked him and I believe he was absolutely instrumental to that season, in performances and in leading by example. Unfortunately I struggle to forget that he handed in a transfer request here. Because of that I'll struggle to see him as a legend. Can totally understand why he did it and though it didn't work out, wouldn't say he was wrong to; but for me legends don't do that.
  2. Southampton I reckon, we've done very well out of them at this level.
  3. We got mugged, far from finished product, no Wes Burns, etc.
  4. Pfft, a 10-0 victory wouldn't convince me.
  5. I think our transfer business has been good, we've simply been let down. We've bought a lot of promising youth - your likes of O'Dowda and Moore etc. Some will come off, some won't. That's fine, those are the gambles we should make. Our problem is the experienced players we bought. I'll call them out; Tomlin, O'Neill and Matthews. Those lads, if they were consistently at the level they should be at minimum - let alone capable of - we would not be where we are. I'm of no doubt we are where we are because some players are being (insert your choice of swearword). Whether LJ is culpable for that, the individuals or A Nother I don't know. But what I am unequivocal in is that LJ is not the only disappointment. That's not me saying he shouldn't walk, he should, but for me Matthews would F off at the season's end naturally, O'Neill would be offered to anyone and everyone on a free and then paid up, and Tomlin would be similarly touted; even if sold for a loss.
  6. And we knew when we loaned out Moore that Matthews was a tosser with no interest in turning in any kinda performance...
  7. We don't. Just a moot point but we just have to match Blackburn so long as we beat them, so it's not out of our own hands.
  8. they **** off
  9. a very good home team at Northampton.... oh dear god, the reality of how bad it would be is hitting home.
  10. That's a bit simplistic Robbo, I don't think solid foundations have been built. Granted I was not at Wigan but Burton, well they gave us the miss of the season and that aside were absolutely toothless. They were only matched in their inability to create anything by Norwich. I wouldn't be confident yet to say we stifled either side, I have much more confidence in saying, on that day at least, they were shit. Had we played more testing offensive teams I could be more enthusiastic of our defensive record. As it is I'm very happy with the result, not sure we're as solid as we can or should be though.
  11. I'd be tempted to sack LJ if he pushes HM even as a sole reason. Yes HM makes mistakes, he's not perfect and he's got some development to do, but his potential is obvious to almost all but LJ. LJ's reluctance to play him despite our obvious defensive shortcomings is negligent alone.
  12. Tbf England Rugby always do well in between World Cups. Peaking at the wrong time is their forte.
  13. - become his own man; - drop his ego; - show the kind of faith the board have given him in players, not slag them off at any and every opportunity; - play his best players and not his favourites; - Apologise! - win back the changing room;
  14. Yeah sorry pal, I thought the thread title was a question then swiftly edited - albeit not swift enough. I'm the stupid one!
  15. Far too simplistic. We've chucked away 3-0 and 2-0 leads in that sequence - probably another similar (blaming my memory) - and we failed to beat a bloody awful Burton and a bloody awful Norwich. It is those lost points which leads me to question our ability to collect enough.
