  1. Absolutely it has to be taken with a pinch of salt. But at the same time currently these players are statistically the best players in their team even if it is the league below. If they are doing that why would they not deserve to be competing for first team places? Eisa has a very high rating at 7.26 which suggests we might have been wrong to let him go. Taylor’s however is only 6.56 despite scoring 3 goals suggesting that he doesn’t offer all that much and he has very much found his level.
  2. Was feeling a little bit pessimistic about Morrell as Lincoln seemed to have stagnated a bit recently. I had a look at his stats on whoscored.com and was pleasantly surprised however. He has statistically the highest average rating for Lincoln with 7.05, the only player on the team to have over 7. Furthermore he is averaging 2.3 tackles a game, and 2.1 interceptions in midfield with an 80.1% average pass completion percentage. For comparison purposes Josh Brownhill offers a 7.08 average rating, with 2.2 average tackles a game, 1.6 avg. interceptions and 79% pass completion, he also has a goal and an assist which will explain the marginally higher rating than Morrell who has none. Massengo has an 6.39 average rating, avg. 1 tackle a game, 0.8 interceptions and 80.9% pass completion, with no goals or assists. In hindsight, it looks like Morrell would actually improve our team currently, yes there is a gap between League 1 and Championship but he is demonstrating some very impressive stats. If we would have had him sitting in front of the defence while Nagy was out it could have given Brownhill a bit more room to express himself in the middle. To open another can of worms, Liam Walsh is also the highest rated player for coventry with an average rating of 7.25, averaging per game 2.1 tackles, 2.3 interceptions, 83.1% avg. pass completion, and a goal to top it off. I do also wonder if this also means the beginning of the end for Korey Smith, Morrell and Walsh have shown themselves capable of breaking up the play albeit in a lower division, and Morrell has also started to be called up for the Wales senior squad. Morrell seems to play a bit deeper than Walsh and LJ may see a ready made replacement ready to slot in and compete with Nagy for that position? Recall for one in January perhaps?
  3. In the games I’ve seen this season Brownhill has been far more effective than Massengo who despite looking great on the ball offers very little in terms of defensive and attacking contributions. Rose tinted specs have come out a bit I feel. Nagy and Brownhill will be the preferred midfield two I imagine with Massengo to come in on rotation and force his way into the side. Bentley, Hunt or Weimann for me.
  4. Hopefully Eliasson starts, could be key to us unlocking defences at home.
  5. @Peter O Hanraha-hanrahan Has summed it up perfectly. Yelling England at people of an Asian ethnicity who live in England and are likely British is discriminatory. It is targeting a certain percentage of the fan base by inferring that because they are not of a certain race/ethnicity they are not British. I don’t see in what world you could infer that to not be racist or discriminatory. The only person who has shown themselves to be a pillock is you.
  6. Isn’t he out of contract this year? Could see him leaving on a free.
  7. Is Nagy back next week? Would be good to see what he and Brownhill can offer in the middle together and give HNM a bit of a rest.
  8. Singing it because of the Asian community present is discriminatory and therefore racist. Pretty obvious really.
  9. Herd Mentality this - People will follow the crowd irregardless of personal opinion and rationality. The best way to avoid it going forward is better education and condemning it when it happens, not excusing it because “half the stand were chanting it”.
  10. A word or term can have many different extended meanings and interpretations than the simple one sentence definition found in a dictionary. E.g. ”Racism is the belief in the superiority of one race over another. It may also mean prejudice discrimination, or antagonism directed against other people because they are of a different race or ethnicity.” I don’t really understand how you arrived to that final point either? Ethnicity is simply a group who share the same cultural or ancestral values?
  11. Racism can also be perceived as discrimination against certain ethnic groups. An ethnic group can be defined as a group of people who identify with each other due to various shared factors, one of which can be their belief. Whatever the label you want to put on it is, discrimination should not be acceptable in any shape or form.
  12. Islamophobia = Racism Discriminating or demonstrating prejudice against an entire religion due to the actions of a tiny minority of it is racist. You can use whatever term you want to describe it, it still doesn’t make it less racist.

    He was found not guilty of sexual assault, which as previously mentioned may have not been the correct charge to go for. He still kissed the woman against her will irregardless.

    Sorry mate, but I have said he has kissed a woman against her will, which he and his barrister have admitted. So I run no risk of civil action.

    Why not? It's a perfect example of the societal issue here.
