  1. Goal is coming. And it ain't ours. Where is the rocket up there arse. Really hard not to moan. We look like a team in 14th with one game to go.
  2. Hey, a drab affair against poor opposition. But 3 points are 3 points and the big bonus for me is a clean sheet without aden or Joe.
  3. Hey the team that wins the play offs is always the team with momentum. Its dangerous for us to just sit comfortably in 3rd in a false sense of security... That why Johnson has engineered this blip - a master stroke executed by bringing in shyte players in the window - so we can then rise phoenix like from mid table in the run in to breach the top six and win the play offs.
  4. Is their a link that doesn't require log in?
  5. Although initially villas late win irritated me - the positive is that it adds more pressure to Cardiff.
  6. Go for the jugular. Still a long way to go yet - a quarter of the season. Win there and I still think if we can go on a run second isn't out of the question. Still got a horrible feeling we'll meet them in the play offs and with Colin avenging the loss he suffered in that play off semi with Palace though.
  7. This really is hilarious on here. Frustrating, yes, but seriously... Not the end of the world. We are in the play offs, we've had an unbelievable cup run. We all want promotion, but one step at a time. The club are moving forward, Johnson is still very young and I'm sure will admit himself still has areas where he needs to improve. A lot of the management aspects will only come through experience. Chill the **** out
  8. Cmon boys good opportunity to recover that GD here
  9. Don't agree. The cup run didn't illustrate our ability to play under pressure. There was no pressure in those big big games
  10. It's one area of our fantastic management team that I am no longer so confident about; I saw for myself against wolves how exhausted they were. They were playing on adrenalin alone. The unfortunate ending to that match not only knocked the proverbial stuffing out of them mentally, but also it brought their bodies back down to planet earth. So when little Lee piped up the next day saying he was glad they had an immediate chance to get it out of their system (villa), I questioned that wisdom, and correctly predicted the hammering which only served to batter our mental and physical state even further, along with our goal diff, that is... Lee then states it was a game too far. It worried me! If I could see it (along with probably a few thousand others) then why couldn't they? Villa should have been written off beforehand, with at least half the team rested. After all, that's what we did in the carabao early rounds, and to good effect. This is why I have mild concern for Bobby.
  11. Manon

    Brand Beckham

    Some aspects to his game were World class. Set pieces, Free kicks, crossing were absolutely world class. As was his range of passing. But he wasn't a world class player in the purist sense.
  12. I don't understand why people are making assumptions based on the fact that because he's young and has got a great 'engine' on the pitch, that he therefore carries some inherent immunity to fatigue. Youthful enthusiasm can disguise certain things, and I get the feeling that some players - like my 9 year old boy - simply don't know when they're tired... They will literally run until they drop. Maybe Bobby has indeed got enough in the tank yet. Maybe not. But why risk it? If I was LJ I would at least take BR's foot off the accelerator a wee bit, now that we have cover, just to give him a boost. Besides, he's got a busy summer in Russia yet...
  13. I think that that is something that you can coach out of him if needed. My view is that LJ considered him surplus to requirements and was given a gentle push out of the door in the form of a poor contract.
  14. I always liked the Colin with big eye brows, even before he acquired a soft spot for us. The championship on 5 has improved immeasurably since he has taken the reins too. It is actually just about worth watching now, rather than recording, then skipping through to see the city goals whilst hoping not to catch any of the cringy presenter- talk.
  15. It helps that he is young, but I still think that in a season where he has been expected to do a hell of a lot of donkey work, in a style which requires intense pressing when we haven't got the ball and rapid counter attacking when we have, that there is nonetheless an increased danger of injury or burnout. I'm not suggesting leaving him out for weeks on end. Just that since we now have other options, to use him more sparingly and allow for a little recharging so that he is firing on all cylinders for the final straight.
  16. Unlike in 2007/08, I don't feel as though we are all going under the radar or underestimated at all. The fantastic cup run has put paid to that. Quite the opposite in fact. I've never known a time when this club has enjoyed such positive press from so many angles. It's natural that we are seen to be punching above our weight as we are excelling with little addition to the squad which nearly got relegated last season.
