  1. I'm accepting the points with enormous gratitude, but I'd still argue we haven't won any game I've seen this season convincingly. I only comment on those I watch. I'm completely unconvinced that Afobe , who we're obviously not going to see again or Famara as a poor alternative is going to improve our insipid midfield. Love Korey, but he has his limitations and it'll take him 3 or 4 competitive games to get anywhere near his best.
  2. Haha, ok. Thing is though I haven't seen a game this season where we obviously were the better team, and we bang on about if Afobe hadn't got injured, or we'd got Neketiah rather than Leeds we'd be top 6 at end of the season, but how does that miraculously turn our midfield into players that can control and pass the ball effectively?
  3. Not convinced, like them both but as I say, are they so good they can make the rest of them better, cos that's the rub. It's not just tonight. I've no seen us come near to outplaying anyone this season.
  4. It's nothing to do with perspective Chip. Realistically the only players out injured that potentially will improve us are Dasilva and Nagy. There's no way they're suddenly going to turn that shower of shit into something resembling a team. Couldn't put three passes together, and Barnsley were appalling.
  5. Pitiful, I'd have been embarrassed if we'd won. That was the Woking v Dover and we were worse than both of them.
  6. Equally, when was the last time you saw a penalty given when the player doesn't go to ground. Often see blatant trips where the player tries to stay on his feet but is off balance and loses the ball. Never gets the pen. It encourages players to go down at the slightest touch.
  7. OK I've been desperately trying to stay off this thread, but have to say that in my opinion both sides of the argument are correct and perhaps people should be slightly less polarised in their views. Mental illness is destructive and debilitating , often long term and poorly served by the NHS. However the majority of people I see claiming to be depressed are reacting to a temporary situation where low mood would be considered a normal response, and like it or not a diagnosis of depression may well be of benefit to them. The situations they may find themselves in are sometimes self caused but more frequently not , and the majority I feel sympathetic towards. But not all. Most would benefit more from talking therapy rather than meds , but this is still difficult to access in a timely fashion, which is why we get criticised so frequently for over medicating. It's difficult to offer nothing to people in these acute circumstances. Don't really want to enter a debate, just my experience.
  8. Unfortunately some people are like this. And I suspect with the amount of medical/psychological/dietary/ you chose, input the modern pro footballer gets , for some players it will reinforce their obsession on peak fitness. I suspect Baker is one of those players who feels the need to give everything in a game and if he's anything less than 100% in his mind will pull out.
  9. I accept that, but genuinely, is a reasonable first touch assuming he doesn't have to put any significant effort in to reach the ball enough?
  10. Where do you get the potential from Spud? I've seen him possibly 4 times live and a couple on TV for Newport and other than a nice bit of control and a turn he's been completely ineffectual. Someone earlier mentioned 4 in 20 for Newport which if true is a fairly damning statistic. I've never seen him create an opportunity or look like scoring. Unfortunately we have an 18 yr old in midfield that demonstrates what true potential is. Accepting that he has more talent than Semenyo can dream of at his disposal, his work rate is stratospheric. I'm not sure what the opposite of that is, but it would fit Semenyo. I'd seriously like someone to point out what I'm missing, because I just don't get it.
  11. I'm sorry for your loss. However you misunderstand. Cancer is just another disease, you live long enough you'll almost certainly get it but you'll die of something else. People who have it deal with it, as I'm sure your dad did. Joking about it generically or using it as a comparison is ok by me. What is not ok are people like Mr Peacock or Henry who belittle or see humour in other peoples suffering. Soulless amoebic *****.
  12. Jeez you're a sensitive little chap aren't you? I've had/got cancer and it didn't offend me. Totally reasonable comment.
