  1. Agreed, I wanted him gone, but he gave us all some good memories and could not lift us that extra 5/10 % required. No shame in that.
  2. And we said no to selling Webster until Brighton reached our Valuation of 20 million quid, had the only offered 15 million we would have said sod off, we said no to selling Kelly until Bournemouth offered 14/15 million plus add ons that I believe could take the fee above that of Webby. There is not a team on earth that can turn down the sale of any player if the price is right, I would argue that not one of our players has been sold below what anyone would consider too good to turn down. Until we are winning the Premier League and Champions league on a regular basis we will be sell
  3. They didn't refuse to sell him WBA never offered the money they wanted. When you say they refused to sell you are chatting shit, they simply did not have their valuation met. Had WBA offered 15/18 million for Bradley Dack he would not be at Blackburn, as it was they didn't meet the valuation. Nobody put in a big for Bellingham so what Brum refused to sell him to the precisely 0 clubs that offered to buy him? Be like saying the Liverpool refused to sell Salah to Real, but Real never actually Bid and their interest wasn't serious at the price Liverpool would be willing to accep
  4. Would argue that even they don't have a choice, realistically unless you are Barca or Real Madrid you can and will have your best players taken from you if someone bigger wants them.
  5. I don't buy it, the chance near the end was the best of the bunch, and he should have got it on target, decent keeper like Samba probably should not be beaten however. Forest had no clear cut chances, yet scored a goal and won the game, not that it matters as I think although that was partly down to us pressing well from what I have watched of Forest this season they were well below par. Why do people act as if Afobe is some top class goal scorer? I like him but his career does not back that up, he has scored more than 20 goals in a season once a chunk of which were in League 1, ot
  6. So I have just watched the sky highlights to make sure I didn't miss some great chances. 1 shot from the edge of the box, 1 header from 16/17 yards, 1 header from 12/13 yards. Sky didn't even bother to include the one from near the end. Can someone explain to me which of these chances is a clear chance that you should score from? I know we are shit going forward but just because of that you cannot elevate half chances and shots from outside the box to good chances.
  7. I'm not going to sit here and argue that he's been missing sitters constantly because he patently hasn't, but the chance against Wednesday where he just didn't head the ball was an exceptionally good chance, and the one later where he couldn't get the ball out of his feet was a good chance. So you cant say he hasn't had any chances. However we do not create many really good chances, we create a number of half chances and that's it. Our strikers have done very well to score as many as they have this season with what has been created for them. I think the Wells signing wreaks o
  8. Bullshit, sky have us down as having 1 chance and that was Beniks header late on that was hardly a sitter. We had no guilt edge chances, and to say we should have scored 3/4 is just delusional. No I won't give Johnson credit as it is yet another case of him just randomly trying formations and teams until he by luck more than skill gets it right, and I can't really say that a game with 2 shots on target is something we should be happy about.
  9. You are happy creating 1 half decent chance per game? Putting in lots of bad crosses?and lacking any creativity? If you are genuinely wanting to be anywhere near the top of this league when you go to forest and they fail to turn up you simply have to win. I reckon other than us every other side in the top 12/15 in this league wins with forest playing like that.
  10. Agree and in his cameo for the last however many minutes Pato did more attacking and put in more dangerous crosses (1) than COD and Wieman managed for all their time on the pitch, we got a lot of crosses in but none of them were particularly good. If it were the other way round I would have been dissapointed to come away from that conceding any goals.
  11. Agree there, if COD is playing as the more advanced of the 3 then I still can't quite understand how he gets so much game time, but I have no problem with him tweaking it a bit. I get frustrated at him when he throws the baby out with the bath water so it would be wrong to have a pop too much with just a little tweak considering we weren't completely woeful on Sunday.
  12. Exactly, you would have thought after the Bury debacle the EFL would actually be a but more cautious about their fit and proper persons test, but to allow people who clearly don't appear to have the money or the knowledge to run the club is just disgraceful. Only saving grace could be that the national security law being passed in HK has had some drastic and unknowable side effects for the owners but I doubt it.
  13. I know what you mean, I just can't do it, I want us to win. However I am definatley less bothered after a loss if it hastens his departure.
  14. Agree with that, when he is backed into a corner he does well, give him an 18 man squad and he will get something out of it. It's no coincidence that most of our decent runs have often come in the middle of a injury 'crisis' forcing his hand to play a particular and stable style and team. The second he has any choice it all goes wrong, and its all because he has no courage in his convictions, as soon as we lose a game or 2 we throw the baby out with the bath water and start throwing random teams and systems together until as you say by luck he gets something that works, but again the min
