  1. There definitely 'is a player in there ' but we just don't see it often enough and he has been here 4 years. On top of that how many games is he injured for ? Someone had a chart recently of all our injuries, I'd like to see the percentage of games he has been available for in the last 3 years ....I suspect it's about 60% at best. When you add to that some 'inconsistent ' displays then like many others I'd be in favour of him moving on. Obviously finding someone who scores and assists wont be cheap but if we want to get promoted/play offs its what we need to do. Attack has b
  2. Robins tv commentate like we are winning 3 0. So much praise given for our players and moaning about time wasting and referees....maybe we should try not being behind to begin with !
  3. He always did say he wanted to see 'middlesborough away' style performances ....maybe he was talking literally all along ... Sacked too soon!
  4. With it now clear that no fans will return at Ashton gate this season (unless we make the plays offs) will the club give us a full refund? No reason not to really?
  5. https://www.watfordobserver.co.uk/sport/19082535.former-watford-head-coach-nigel-pearson-hits-club-controlled-journalism/ Our club makes North Korea look open and transparent in terms of spin and comms ! Although fair play to lansdown in the last 7 days for far more balanced and honest communication. Pearson suddenly.shot up the odds if that means anything. Certainly has the calibre with two promotions but is a bit of a loose cannon too. Wouldn't be boring!
  6. Now 1000-1 on skybet #itshappening
  7. Looking around there doesnt seem to be any bookies offering odds for the new manager? Is it a done deal already and the bookies know something we dont
  8. I have been critical of Ashton and cant stand him to be honest. It may be his fault we have Holden as manager but is it actually his fault that we have lost 9 in 12? Should Holden have got more out of the depleted squad he has had? On a separate note, why has so much focus now turned to Ashton? I dont think the injuries have helped given his wider role.of 'overseeing all football activity ' and inetivablty the controversial appointment of Holden which he is now having to take flak for. Can ashton recover or is his card marked forever more? Can he survive if holden doesnt ?
  9. Not sure you can compare holdens words to Johnson. Sure holden has repeated himself there a bit but Johnson would have gone off on a tangent about various people he had spoken to about medicine, thrown in some made up analogy and then told us we have the best injury/recovery protocols outside the prem.
  10. Maybe we should get a new training ground:) In all seriousnessness. ..sometimes you can be unlucky (and maybe some of it is) but there have been too many in the past couple of seasons for it to be just bad luck.
  11. I think do both of these things. The racists dont win if all of football /sport/society stars boycotting the platform where they are being vile .... Hopefully it would drive action so that within 12 months banning them and charging them would be easier because social media companies get the message that it's not acceptable. Literally imagine the impact if all of football and possibly sport came off Instagram, twitter, facebook ...every club, every player, every journalist and many many fans ....
  12. It's up to them what they choose to do. Some things they could consider are Something around blocking the account /deletion Something around blocking the IP address Lobby governments to bring in harsh penalties and then work with governments to help with the process Ask people to provide details/Id if they want to use the service If it was easy we wouldn't be in this position but i feel if ALL of the clubs , players and fans said theyd delete their accounts and not rejoin until 2022 at the earliest some very quick action would be taken by the social.med
  13. Why dont all footballers and all football clubs/organisations come off all social media and encourage fans to do the same for at least the rest of 2021 . Then state theyll only return if these social media companies make significant changes for 2022 Would have a huge impact potentially.
