  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Why blame the manager? Because the buck stops with him. He put together a brand new team, as I posted earlier. A risky thing to do but it was forced upon him. We began pretty well. he changed Weimann back into the striker he always was. A goal a game in the first few games, Diedhiou came back and since then, pretty much disaster. This has to be tactics and poor management of the front line. Johnson, sort it out or go away.
  4. Where are we? In the middle of nowhere. The supporters deserve better.
  5. It's becoming clear to me, he's not getting any better. Today, he needs to learn lessons from. Or else?
  6. Why blame the manager? Because the front line, the striking unit, is not properly organised anymore.
  7. Football is a simple game. Johnson, get your front line organised!
  8. Early in the season everybody, especially people in Derby, were saying what a splendid job we were doing converting Weimann into a striker, who was scoring regularly at the rate of about one a game. City fans were looking forward to the return of Diedhiou and how much better we would do then. What has happened since? A series of 0-0 and 0-1 scores despite dominating posession and a goal famine from Weimann. What goals we have managed have come from the likes of Brownhill, Pack & Baker rather than our so-called strikers. Something must change.
  9. What a great video. A fantastic moment for Roy of The County.
  10. Lloyd Kelly & Marlon Pack both had good games We are incapable of finishing well created chances but Famara has only two more games suspension to serve. One of those is against QPR who shipped 7 today so we should manage to get through their defence. We still have DaSilva to slot in and bolster our own defence.
  11. Unless, of course, we were involved in a penalty shoot-out.
  12. Thank God we didn't spend all our money on Sterling or Dier
  13. After the performances in the second half of last season, clearly not.
  14. As leading players in the team, Reid, Flint and Bryan must accept their share of blame for the end of season collapse. Most of the lapses were in defence so my remarks must apply particularly to the latter two. They were involved in leaking 3 goals to Sunderland in the 2nd half and 3 goals to Sheff Utd in the first half. The cup games made them famous and increased their transfer price so I'm not totally ungrateful. Reid has served his time, on loan at Plymouth could not have been easy and he made a big impact at that club. He is an ambitious young man and deserves his chance. He must now impress Warnock. Good Luck!
