  1. I totally agree. I can only guess that Watkins was running out of gas having not played all season, there was no other reason to take him off. As for Semenyo, it almost seems to me like we’ve backed ourselves into a corner of having to play him. He’s the only ‘home grown’ option we have and he was hyped hugely last season when he came back from his loan spell. He then played well at Preston and seemed to be viewed as the next big thing. The problem is that, since that time, he’s looked way out of his depth but all our other options are out on loan so he has to be involved. The worst thing for me is that he’s barely looked like he’s been trying, which I hope is a confidence thing rather than anything else. I really want the boy to come good but on the evidence I’ve seen he’s either not good enough full stop or he needs a couple of years on loan himself to develop.
  2. That was a really poor last 20 against a side who will most likely go down this season. Barnsley could and should have scored at least a couple before the equaliser eventually came. Defensively, that’s 4 dreadful goals conceded against relegation fodder in the last 2 games. Injuries and suspensions aren’t helping at the moment but even allowing for that we should be holding on far more comfortably against a team like Barnsley.
  3. I agree. He was big, strong, mobile and a proper handful throughout the game. We looked so lightweight up front.... I’d have him up there ahead of any of our available options on that evidence.
  4. You say he did ok in the away games.... I was at Brentford and I thought he was totally anonymous there too. Diedhiou is far from perfect but he puts himself about and gives us an outlet up front, however cumbersome he can appear. Games at this level seem to be just pass Semenyo by from what I’ve seen. I’m sure he’ll improve but at the moment he’s miles off.
  5. The thing that’s concerned me in the last 2 games is that it doesn’t even look like Semenyo is giving 100%. Maybe it’s just that he’s a bit lost but several times today he seemed to be just walking around. I know we have to have a home grown player in the 18 but Semenyo looks miles off to me. We’d have been much better keeping Taylor and using him for 20 minutes here and there. I really hope that this lad fulfils his potential but he’s definitely not the answer for what we need right now.
  6. Really sad news, I remember his work well. Thoughts with his family and friends.

    Stadium tours

    My company sponsored a game a while back and we got a tour of the stadium as part of that. We had a walk down the tunnel, went into the changing rooms and met LJ and a couple of the players who happened to be around at the time. It was all a bit rushed as it was on a match day but all of us, kids and adults alike, thoroughly enjoyed it. If they offered them to people for a decent price I’m certain there would be huge demand for them.
  8. This is a ridiculous move imo. We all know he has some limitations but Pack has been ever present for us for years now, and everything goes through him. Overall he’s a good player. To sell him now, to them of all teams, seems beyond reckless to me. If the new lads don’t settle I genuinely fear for us.
  9. Not the player we wanted but if we get his best form out of him could be a v good addition. Let’s give him a chance and get behind him....
  10. I don’t blame the club too much for anything they’ve done but this is beyond frustrating now. As others have said it seems highly unlikely someone will pop out of the blue at this late hour.
  11. I think that’s a harsh view on Reid. He didn’t tear it up in the Premier League with Cardiff but I was one of many people at the time who thought he just wasn’t the type of player who’d fit a Warnock team. As for the one season wonder thing, he only really played regularly up front for us in that one season. The rest of the time he was in and out of the side playing much deeper. He always looked promising but that move higher up the pitch seemed to unlock his potential in a way which surpassed all expectations. He might not be able to repeat that form, but equally he might prove to be a master stroke of a signing. I don’t believe that signing Reid would be a sentimental decision. In many ways it would be pragmatic. He knows the way we play, fits the system and knows the club, manager and players. I would be all for his return for those reasons.
  12. In theory someone with Austin’s goal scoring record would be a great signing. I know a Saints fan though I’m told that he’s lazy and, unless he scores, contributes nothing in a game. He also needs someone playing alongside him, so wouldn’t fit the way we play. I can’t see this one happening for any number of reasons and if it did I think it could prove to be an expensive mistake.
  13. I’d take Bobby back in a heartbeat. Yes it was galling when he went to them of all clubs but it was probably his one shot at the big time so I can just about forgive him for that. I’ve seen a few people describe him as a one season wonder and that would be the risk. I would say though that he’s the best of all the options out there by far now. And the fact that it would piss off the Cardiff fans makes it all the better.
  14. I’ve thought all summer that this lad is our first choice. I just hope we have back up options which can move quickly if it doesn’t come off.
  15. I totally agree with all of this. Moore will have been monitored for a while and, if we get him, he’ll clearly be deemed worth it by our scouting/management team which is good enough for me. The fact that Barnsley fans seem gutted about potentially losing him is a very good sign too. I’m not sure he’s our first choice but clearly we rate him and if he comes in I’ll be excited to see how he goes.
