  1. I share all of your concerns. Many people seem to think that Pearson is a done deal to stay but I just don’t see it like that at all. SL will know, as we all do, that the thing this club needs at the moment above everything else is stability. With Ashton going, no permanent manager and 14 players out of contract we are in a complete mess at present. With all of that in mind you’d think that sorting out a long term managerial appointment would be the highest priority and yet the silence is deafening. Without a win or two to finish the season I think SL will go by results and look elsewhere
  2. I went for Palmer’s goal from the corner v Swansea. That was a genuinely magic moment in what has been the most dour, uninspiring season I can remember for a long time.
  3. I think you’re spot on. From the interviews and little snippets we see, Pearson clearly knows what the issues are and has identified a ‘comfort zone’ culture at the club that he wants to sort out. I’ve long been concerned that he’ll have a list of home truths for SL that SL won’t like, as it would involve ripping up most of what’s been implemented over the last few years and starting again. SL really seems to believe in the culture of the club and I just can’t see him accepting that. I sincerely hope I’m wrong, but I think someone like Robins is just more of an SL type of appointmen
  4. Apparently so..... The thing is we really have
  5. Having had nearly 24 hours to reflect on it, I’m still bewildered by the ‘performance’ I watched yesterday. This season has produced a procession of inept displays but I think yesterday topped the lot. I won’t be parting with any more cash to Robins TV after that, I’m sick of having my day/weekends ruined by a bunch of wasters who simply don’t care. I thought Pearson’s interview was a breath of fresh air in one way and terrifying in another. It was great to hear a manager call out the lazy arsed players for what they are, but actually quite shocking in a way to hear a professional who wor
  6. I have been saying exactly this for a week or two now. The current results give Ashton and SL the perfect excuse to get rid of Pearson, who would want to rock the boat and make far more changes across the board than they would be comfortable with. I reckon we’ll start next season with someone like Appleton in charge and 6-7 of the out of contract players re-signed as if nothing has happened. I sincerely hope I’m wrong but I can see this scenario unfolding and us going down next year...
  7. Yep. A new low I’d go as far as to say.
  8. An absolutely pitiful performance again. No cohesion, no fight, and a complete inability to execute simple skills, such as completing a 5 yard pass. We have a manager and over a whole team of players out of contract at the end of the season, and there appears to be no clarity or plan at any level on or off the pitch. If we hadn’t had the start we did with the 4 straight wins we would be relegation favourites. Nige needs to really get amongst it here, give them an almighty bollocking and get us organised and up for it. Massive second half needed now.
  9. Sweet mother of God this is bad. We need a mass clear out in the summer. It’s only Semenyo and arguably Massengo that have done anything today... the rest have been absolutely atrocious.

    Kasey Palmer

    Absolutely excellent today. Did all the things we know he’s good at but his work rate today was fantastic. Looks a real player now he’s had that run of games.
  11. Still right up there with my favourite nights watching City. You won’t see many scruffier goals than Donowa’s winner but I don’t think a goal has ever made the Gate explode like that, before or since. Magic.
  12. Yesssssssssssss Outrageous strike from Palmer!!
  13. Beyond naive from Palmer for me. They’re going nowhere there.... no need to risk conceding the pen. Harsh decision but you don’t give Stroud a decision like that to make. Brainless.
