  1. Agree about the midfield but Kasey Palmer has not been the answer up to now because whilst he has the ability to see a devastating through ball/pass, for that to happen you have you have intelligent movement up front. With NW on the pitch, we will finally have that and given this, I think that KP could very much be the answer (especially away) so long as he gets some protection from midfield partners
  2. I never expected everyone to agree but for me, it is all about entertainment. Of course I want success and promotion but football is not about numbers, it is about talent and natural flair and ability, about exciting play which gets the crowd going.. Sadly, the life has been slowly sucked out of AG in the last 18 months with the sterile stuff we have been churning out and the atmosphere is dying. We need to play football that gets people out of their seats before it is too late and we end up playing in a "quiet" stadium Right, I'm off to bed, thanks for everyone's contributions
  3. People like me went to every game and have every programme from the dreaded 1982 season (and before) when we went bust and every season for years after when we plummeted to the 4th division... People like me put my hard earned cash in to buy shares to rescue the club and were at Chester when we crawled our way back out of the basement and started our rise back up the divisions. That;s what people like me do Been watching the club for 50 years and this is undoubtedly the most sterile and unambitious football we have played at home in that time and it is clearly not the players so what does that leave...
  4. Ok, so when we are 13th in a month's time, will that be an acceptable time (or too late)
  5. Frankly that says it all about our current malaise He is WAY better than league one, he should be learning and improving in our midfield... Sadly, we don't have one...
  6. Think you'll find I have been saying this for a while... I've followed this club for getting on for 50 years and I can honestly say that I have never seen us play this negative, boring shite at home in that entire period and that includes the dark days at the bottom of the 4th division. With the possible exception of the Pulis era, we at least tried to play more attacking football, in fact the front line of our 4th division team was a sheer delight to watch compared to some of today's stuff If you can't see that, I feel genuinely sorry for you...
  7. Ok, how many points do you see us getting from our next 9 games...?
  8. I think he is indeed a very decent player and will go on to much bigger and better things... Right now, we have simply dragged him down to our standard...
  9. You didn't answer the question... Have you and if yes, are you happy watching what we are currently producing...?
  10. I can handle any and all defeat if we put up any kind of decent performance but those have been few and far between at home for getting on for 2 seasons. The formula is pretty simple now, the opposition lets us run around a bit and create nothing and we generally blow ourselves out by 30 minutes at which point they pick us off at will, time after time after time, after time.... If it hadn't have been for the slip up, we would have offered NOTHING tonight (again) and it's time for a new plan and/or manager...
  11. Well I started writing this before 2 others appeared....
  12. for the sheer inability or even worse, the stubborn refusal to play anything remotely resembling coherent football at home.... The first is just not being up to it, the latter being worse but either way, the manager is culpable for the continuing dismal home performances, stretching back over 2 seasons now. Don't be fooled by 4 wins on the bounce, 3 of those were away where we able to play our keep it tight and hit them on the break stuff and frankly, Barnsley were very hard done by. Now I know that we CAN play good football on occasion and that we do have players that are worth their 5 figure weekly wage packet which leads me to conclude that the dismal crap that we churn out week after week at home is by design/ coaching. I feel sorry for Fami and Nakhi Wells, we created nothing for them all night, Wells barely had a touch WE HAD NO MIDFIELD WHATSOEVER, Birmingham looked light years ahead of us football wise and there was only 1 team in it after 2 minutes. When is our manager going to learn that away tactics DO NOT WORK AT HOME WHERE WE HAVE TO TAKE THE GAME TO THE OPPONENTS. You have been rumbled sunshine and teams with any modicum of ability will continue to take us apart at home. Either go back to the drawing board and come up with a completely different home game plan or if not, get out For anyone who can be bothered to watch, the thing that summed today up was at around 37 minutes where we had the ball about 30 yards out and you could literally see the players looking at each other as if to say what do we do. The whole essence and ethos of our home performances are COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE - time for someone who can play the beautiful game....
  13. Top player who we haven't seen the best of yet - will be a huge asset to this club, must stay...!
