  1. What made that decision even more bizarre, was LJ had openly commented after the PNE game that Semenyo strengths were receiving the ball with his back to goal and using his low centre of gravity and good footwork to turn or keep possession... then he plays him LW with Dasilva at LB who all too often gets caught up field. Queue "accident waiting to happen" which it did.
  2. Agree LJ needs to be judged after 46 games, not based on us temporarily being 6th. IF he gets us finishing in the top 6 I will eat all the humble pie going. Even if we finish 7th to 10th he will have achieved SL expectations to improve on last seasons finish. Finish outside of the top ten... which seems most likely on current form and it's time for him to go.
  3. Agree with you, doesn't need to be a negative formation and actually can work very well, PROVIDED other players get up and about the lone striker to offer support. My point is we have been failing to do that time after time at home, it was crystal clear that the formation was not working again by HT last night, so FFS why didn't LJ change it?
  4. How much longer in this losing his best 3 players stuff going to be trotted out as an excuse? Flint was only allowed to leave after Webster's signing was in the bag, Webster is a far better defender than Flint (I do agree we miss Flint's goals though). Bryan was replace by Dasilva and/or the emergence of Kelly, again defensively both better than Bryan. Reid, well fair enough, not adequately replaced by Wiemann. Also, all 3 of those players were at LJs disposal in the awful run in during the second half of last season, they didn't make the difference then as LJ lost the plot. LJ talks a good game, that's it, how just how can you defend his handling of last night's match?
  5. The title is the headline on the OS. Unfortunately it doesn't seem SL is ready to deliver that final push! I honestly would after what was a new low last night on the latest LJ winless run. One of the telling factors leading to Cotts going was his absolute stubbornness to change from his favoured 3-5-2 formation even though it was not working. Now we have LJ showing the same absolute stubbornness to change from his favoured 1 up top even for home games against the bottom side. To compound this even after watching an insipid first half with Fammy battling isolated on his own, LJ fails to change it at HT by bringing on Taylor or Semenyo to play up top and support Fammy. He then watches Ipswich dominating at the start of the second half but changes nothing until it, all too predictably, becomes 1-1. Then when he does make subs it's like for like position wise and still we struggle with Fammy up top on his own. Finally in the 82nd minute Taylor comes on. Too little, far too late. Clueless, LJ really is.
  6. Finally Taylor on, with 8 mins to play... LJ been clueless tonight.
  7. Silly foul by Pack, gives them another chance to cross into our box.
  8. He got his feet in a mess for og, but otherwise he has played well.
  9. WTF is LJ waiting for now before using subs, for it to be 1-2?
  10. and there it is 1-1, you absolute arse LJ!
  11. agree Brownhill a close second to Pato, in the "who is most sh1te" contest.
