  1. We have sold the family silver and we have bought expensive brass replicas. Webster, Kelly both gone. Loyal servants like Pack & Patterson both gone. I have a bad feeling about this, especially after last Sunday's disjointed performance. The main need was a new striker. The wunderkind from Monaco is still to young. Nobody who is any good chose to come here (including Bobby Reid) and all we have is a declining journeyman from a declining Stoke City. How can anyone call this a success?
  2. To be expected. Poor pre-season preparation. Last season, new signings were made early. This time nothing happened week after week after week. This was a scratch team that had not played together before. First match was a tough fixture. This result was the inevitable outcome. Get down to work and soon if you want access to promotion.
  3. Although it goes against the Johnson doctrine of signing up and coming young players, does anybody else think that 31 year old Uncle Albert could be well worth a good salary for a couple of years more , especially if Callum O'Dowda is on his way?
  4. Let's be happy. It's been a remarkable season after losing what were supposed to be our three best players, replacing them with better and finishing higher in the league for many a year. And as for those 3 players, 2 of them in relegated teams and the other in a team that failed to get promotion; just like us!
  5. Thank God that's over. We wouldn't have got any further than more humiliation in the play-offs.
  6. Whether by accident or design, he seems to be doing a great job. I certainly give him credit for signing some great replacements for "our 3 best players" who left last year, and I like his flexibility in tactics and formations. However, reading his recent post match comments, he often appears surprised by his own success; and indeed some of his failures.
  7. I'm with you on this. When they first went up, nobody gave Bournemouth a second look and, what do you know, they are still there. Fulham, being a London club got all the praise and adulation. I think they have won 5 league games all season; despite having the great Joe Bryan.
  8. To all those people feeling cheated and upset about this afternoon. After today's results, would you rather be a Middleborough supporter or perhaps a follower of West Brom or Nottingham Forset? Truth is, at the last gasp, our 4th choice goalkeeper made a mistake and we dropped 2 points. A further truth is that we still might make the play-offs but almost certainly will not be promoted this year simply because we are not yet good enough; it's work in progress. Progress has been good so be grateful. Onward & Upward!
  9. And I didn't see anything in the ref's performance when we played QPR to suggest that he favoured us. From where we are now I'm happy that we got 2 extra points in the league then rather than have to replay against Wolves.
  10. For me, the result was the best possible. No-one looks forward to losing but....., we gave an excellent account of ourselves, especially in the 2nd half, we lost by the closest margin possible, our reputation continues to grow, a lot of people thought we deserved better and there were no serious injuries. Our ambitions are now totally focussed on a play-off place and possible promotion. Let's just do it!
  11. Well done the boys; 16 shots & 7 of them on target. That's a lot better than other recent games!
  12. By God we needed that. Can't see us getting any more points before Christmas. That goal has saved our bacon; at least for the time being.
  13. We just can't score goals anymore! Why not? Because the midfield has a total lack of imagination and creativity. Mediocre opposition teams feel totally safe from damage and we give them confidence to play better than they really are. We are beaten by poor teams far too often. Fixture list has been kind to us recently. God help us when we next have to play a good side again.
