  1. I agree with you completely. I think the really worrying issue is that the players ARE trying and they still come up with that. Confidence shot, added to injuries and players slogging through game after game with no rest or imaginative direction. Very worrying situation, which needs a new head coach with a different perspective as soon as possible.
  2. I like your ‘optimism’. I struggle to see where two or three wins are coming from. I’d be very happy to see some wins because if we’re not careful we could slip into L1. No one wants that.
  3. Definitely. Needed a bit of quick, left-field thinking.
  4. I'm with you. Sublime pass for, effectively, the winner the last time we won. He's not perfect but, my god, I find myself becoming mildly excited by our play when he's on the field - as opposed to being bored senseless or swearing loudly.
  5. And that, of course, is why the law is as it is. It's actually logical, however harsh it might have felt in that particular instance. For me, it was a red card and penalty every day of every week (until the law is changed about what constitutes handball, although I still feel that should always be a penalty: arm out and stops a goal. It's just one of those things you have to accept). It would have been far better for us if the ball had gone in (11 v 11 and no one-match ban).
  6. Extracts from DH's post-match interview. Hard to argue with any of it. 'I know the penalty was correctly awarded after the ref checked the screen. But I would prefer to get away it, to have the wrong decision made because it would have benefited us - until we get one like that and then I would like the decision to go in our favour.' 'I thought we were real solid tonight and we created two chances. Well, one chance but it would have been a great chance if Nakhi had been good enough to spot the pass. Tomas has had that shot on target as well, which was unlucky. I know the goalkeeper is
  7. Yes, it’s amazing how people forget. Also, Lee Johnson helped us to some reasonable finishing positions in the Championship. It’s amazing how people forget that. But I suppose he didn’t win the Champions League so best to rubbish him as much as possible.
  8. I’ve thought this for a couple of weeks. Nearly every team dominates us or controls us easily. But we’ve found a way to win in some games Eg Preston. That could stop happening.
  9. Yes, he’s done pretty well. But If Williams gets fit, I’m wondering if Vyner should be moved to right back with Hunt on the left. Perhaps Sessegnon left if he gets fit. Don’t think Mariappa is the answer - need to experiment to find a better solution there.
  10. A ‘tough love’ assessment but sometimes the truth hurts. Agree with a lot of this. (Only really disagree on Semenyo. He’s a hugely promising young player who will improve. Need to encourage and nurture him, not jettison.)
  11. Exactly. From 1-1 we were absolutely dreadful. Embarrassingly bad.
  12. Sorry - that’s nonsense. Being a front man is more than just about scoring. It’s about holding it up, laying it off at a clever angle, having some pace to worry a defender. Martin has been a passenger for several games now. His lack of athleticism and pace have been exposed by having to slog out our recent fixtures. He’s looked like an ageing donkey.
  13. Absolutely. You can’t pay a body not to be tired. People who write: ‘they get £15k per week, they should be able to play 4 games in 9 days’ totally miss the point. You can play 4 games, but you are very unlikely to be consistently effective.
  14. There was a positive - goal difference wasn't completely ruined.
  15. Your criticism is strongly worded. But while over-reaction and hyperbole are best avoided, I agree with the overall sentiment - two extremely disappointing and worrying performances. Two very boring matches as well. Saw quite a bit of that last season.
