  1. That's all very well @spudski but surely something like Brentford's model isn't beyond us? Personally, I am not too bothered about the Prem but I'd like to see some good football. We haven't had that since our high energy game of the Man Utd season. This fell away because we didn't have the squad size to maintain it. We have that now with lots of players of similar ability. Yet, what we get is really turgid football, where players dwell too long on the ball, take too many touches and in recent week misplace numerous passes to opposition. I don't mind a misplaced pass when it's an adventurous/ambitious one forwards, but these have been misplaced supposedly 'safe' passes backwards to a teammate!! Right now it has all the hallmarks of the players being over coached again. It needs to be stripped back to basics and players given simple instructions to follow.
  2. Why's that then, mate? Is that just you or a general feeling amongst all Rovers fans? Thought he was a cult (think I spelt that right ) hero with your lot?
  3. He is obviously missing the runs of Adobe one the pitch, but it could be that as the two are so close Afobe's tragic loss is affecting him too. Looked like he wasn't with it at all against Millwall. Footballers get lots of down time, and something like that can become all consuming. Say what you like about LJs coaching ability, but he strikes me as a thoughtful decent human being so I would not expect this to be cited as a reason for his absence if this was the case. All conjecture of course. Szmodics probably deserved an outing too. Very difficult for him to make an instant impact with so little game time.
  4. I thought it was cross come shot. Not overly impressed. That flick was class though.
  5. Indeed. Feel slightly dirty knowing one of those type may have sat on MY seat when I'm not there!!
  6. You got away light. Anyone that likes golf or has any golf parafanalia should receive a life ban from all football grounds and matches IMHO.

    Agree apart from your last point. Unfortunately neither Weimann nor Diedhiou are fox in the box type players. That's nothing to do with tactics, they just don't gamble on getting into the spaces that Eliasson delivers to. Someone like Tammy would fill his boots from Eliasson's crosses. I thought Rhodri would get into those positions but somehow those types of crosses dried up once he came on.
  8. No suggestions, but hope she enjoys it. Been bringing my daughter for about ten years - ever since she was seven - and she's a big football fan. She ended up playing herself too. (Copped myself years of cold Sunday mornings for that one!! ).
  9. Agreed. Would've liked to have seen more of Walsh too. Some players seem to be allowed a run of bad games but keep their place. Other get dropped on the first below par performance. As far as Morrell goes, he's in a great position and so are the club. If he impresses for Wales he may get a decent move and we get a decent fee. If that doesn't happen he has security and has proven he is capable. Win, win.
  10. I take your point, but there's a difference between speaking highly of a player and feeling he's ready. Both needed more games, but you could always see their quality.
  11. I seem to recall LJ speaking highly of Morrell. Just as he has of Walsh. I rate them both too and hope to see them in City shirts next season.
  12. Makes sense to me. I think I started off with a half season ticket. Bought a full one ever since.
  13. The white poppy is to represent all those that lost life - civilians and combatants from both sides - rather than those that died fighting for British forces. Just because you respect every life lost does not mean you would surrender in the event of another war. If more old men in power had a greater respect for life maybe they wouldn't been so quick to send young men off to their deaths in the future. As for blue poppies at the Mem because of an aversion to anything red, that's just purile. If I was a gashead I'd be deeply embarrassed that my club has taken such an iconic emblem of remembrance and made it all about my club's petty alliegence.
  14. Vardy has amazing energy, is an intelligent player, and a top class finisher. He has everything going for him in life. I just can't fathom why he's so angry every time he scores!!
