  1. It's done in house by the club, they have people who aren't necessarily fans of the club running the social media and it shows. Agreed I felt they got it right last night
  2. Oh no they used Mikey Cobban again - I don't really know who he is, some sort of singer/social media influencer by the looks of things. The response the club get when they use him is really negative so it's again very strange they keep using him. Really odd. A better thing to do would be to use Scott Murray for a matchday takeover on an away game.
  3. In fairness to them I thought they did really well last night. No silliness, just good content that fans wanted to see. Got the balance about right with that guy on the train - that was pretty funny. I wonder if they’ve taken a bit of feedback on board? The balance has been better since this was widely discussed (on here and twitter too) last week after that shocker of an evening’s content they provided us with. I think that was the final straw for lots of people and I saw it being discussed in a few places.
  4. Exactly - I think what happens is lots of people like to make an early judgement on a player (human nature I suppose) and then have it vindicated. I remember one poster on here saw Eros Pisano play, in his eyes, badly against Bristol Manor Farm (rather silly in my opinion). He spent the rest of Eros' spell with us trying to vindicate that opinion by always seeing the worst in Pisano. I think it's pretty naive to form an early opinion on a player, especially in pre-season and really you need to see them in 10 games in a variety of scenarios and under different tactics and conditions. I appreciate though that it's human nature (and part of being a football fan I suppose) to not do that.
  5. It's because of the emotion people put into football. You can go to the cinema or bowling (who goes bowling!?) and know exactly what you're going to get for your money. With football, lots of people also have the emotional investment. In addition to the experience, they want to be entertained, they want their team to win - that means if their team plays badly they feel shortchanged.
  6. That’s probably right and I think we will. I like the look of him though. I had heard the issue with him was more about attitude than ability so hopefully a couple of loans iron that out.
  7. Saying that @The Dolman Pragmatist, I totally forgot about Bakinson. Can't see it happening realistically - but I'd love to see us start next season with a midfield group of Bakinson, Walsh, Morrell, HNM and Nagy - (Smith stays as useful experience/cover and fill in at play right back if necessary). I think that blend is pretty complimentary and sends a message to young players that they can make it in the first team if they apply themselves over time.
  8. That is true, good point and probably why that balance isn't realistic. I like Smith but he'd probably be the one i'd let go to bring in a taller player if anyone. Someone with experience, physicality and guile. In the mid 2000s there seemed to be glut of midfielders floating about with the attributes we seem to miss in midfield - Marvin Elliot, Dickson Etuhu etc. I wonder if the game has moved on but there seems to be far less of that box-to-box style.
  9. @GrahamC was a good poster. A little grumpy at times but certainly knew his stuff and had some great contributions to this site. Do you know why he doesn't post anymore? As for Walsh - I really hope we keep him around. I think he's got great talent and the loan to Coventry has been brilliant for him. I think on raw talent alone he's more gifted than Brownhill, the issue with him is that he's not as versatile and some teams wouldn't trust him in a midfield 2 due to his size. His distribution is quality and he has a bit more vision and creativity in his passing than the others. The loan should make him ready for first team football next year. I also really rate Morrell and think the two of them could really compliment eachother. Both play with a bit of bite and hustle - the sort of midfielders Johnson likes. Assuming Brownhill leaves over the next few months; I think in Nagy, Morrell, Walsh, HNM (and perhaps Smith for a bit of versatility and experience) we'd have a nice blend of midfielders with complimentary styles. I hope we give that group a chance over the next year if we're still in this league.
  10. That's his game and it could've been the same here. He's a poacher - he will do nothing for 89 mins and 30 seconds but in the 30 seconds he does something he scores. My concern with him was whether the team would adapt to his style to maximise his talent - scoring.
  11. I don't think the amount of foreign players was a serious political motivation really, just a possible knock-on effect which some see as a positive others as a negative. Hasn't been seriously discussed.
  12. Haha, me neither. It’s been good though, I’ve learned a lot about FFP from those posters. If they hadn’t been posting about it I’d probably be thinking along the lines of Red Dog K.
  13. RDK you surely knew that FFP wasn't that simple. @Mr Popodopolous and @Davefevs have been very hot on spreading the word about the realities of FFP on this forum
  14. It's a similar situation with getting rid of someone who understood the fanbase in the media team (Adam B) and replacing him with someone from outside who doesn't understand the support in the same way. It was exactly the same in the way they removed (or whatever happened) @Tim S and replaced him with some young guy from outside. Tim had done it for years, and although you'll never please everyone in a role like that, it wasn't broken - so why fix it? He did a really good job I felt. Understood the mood of the fans.
