  1. Yeah, look, this definitely isn’t a thread to debate coronavirus or lockdown. You have your opinions but, just from your initial post, they are based on error. I’ll give you one example - you said the virus hasn’t been isolated. That’s just factually incorrect and really easily disproven. But that ‘fact’ is out there (usually attached to some nonsense about failing Koch Postulates) on the internet and is then used to attack other things like virus sequencing and the efficacy of testing. The virus has been isolated many, many times. Any argument that tells you it hasn’t is wrong. That’s f
  2. In last few years, tactical and personnel changes have sometimes felt a bit 'may as well try this'. This one felt a lot more considered and purposeful. (and, we ended up winning... which helps). Postive signs. NP does feel like a really good fit for this club at this time. Hope everyone on here remembers the good vibes when the inevitable difficult spell hits.
  3. Wilson was a big appointment but made prior to Lansdown. And in four years we acheived nothing apart from play off misery. Obviously Coppell was a big appointment. Regardless of how it went. And SoD was pretty well received too. Cotterill was not a popular appointment at all and look how that turned out. It's not easy. But tough to argue that Pearson isn't pretty much as good as we could hope to do. (Doesn't mean it will work out but you don't appoint manager in retrospect).
  4. I’m definitely not talking about anyone in particular. But I’ve seen a lot on here and on radio say they feel sorry for Dean for being put in that position. (Which is different from just saying ‘he shouldn’t have been put in that position’ - that is just saying ‘he shouldn’t have got job’). Maybe it’s a personal thing but if that was me, losing my job would sting less than the fact people felt sorry for me for getting that job in first place.
  5. Yeah - was a really good interview. He came across really well and as very thoughtful. To the original point, I hate the D&D tag and hope people using it maybe think about it a bit more (and then stop).
  6. I take the point and I know a lot of fans feel the same but I said on another thread that I don’t agree it’s as simple as players turning it off and on. Firstly, Dean never played that team. Kalas on left, marriapa middle, midfield three that complement each other, wells actually as striker in effective front two. So you have to accept that tactics and player selection matter or you say they don’t and it’s all down to players wanting to turn it in and off. But secondly, confidence in football is obviously a complex thing. We saw that in second half with a bit of reversion t
  7. This isn't a team that Holden put on pitch though. So there is that. And confidence clearly plays part. I dont buy the idea players have somehow betrayed Holden. Its much more complicated than that
  8. Yeah, I agree with this. Might not be instant so we might have to be a bit patient. But we know he is a really good striker if he is actually given chance to be in and around opposition penalty area for whole game. So Im hoping NP puts him up there and gives him a bit of time to find form (which could be a frustrating few games - but maybe not). Starting point with Nakhi is we know he is not s**t so its (in part) down to the management to help him produce like he should be able to. He's never been given a proper chance here. Im hopeful.
  9. I thought he was good for us. Right time to go but we progressed under him. I understand your view of his time here and Im definitely not going to argue with it (that discussion has been had to death). But I think LJ might be the sort of person to learn from past mistakes and think he might end up a decent manager beyond League One. Anyway - not the time or place for that chat and happy to agree to disagree.
  10. Some of our players must have pass completion rates under 50% in that game. Ive mentioned it before and I hate singling out a player after a team performance that bad, but the number of times we turn over possession when Hunt has the ball is astounding. I thought Kalas and KP had a bit of drive; Bakinson tried when he came on but is really imprecise. Antoine has promise but, again, so imprecise in some really basic things. Everyone else in outfield for us looked like going through the motions and took to field already beaten. You might be right about it being one of worst ever - I r
