    Madness, absolute madness. I’m 100% sure there are occurrences similar to this up and down the country every weekend. Except it’s a male assistant/referee so nobody feels the need to be offended/outraged for him. should you touch an official? Of course not. I’d be really interested to see what she has to say about it. Wouldn’t surprise me if she hadn’t given it a second thought until she saw it all over social media etc.....
  2. He’s got to go. Waste of money and waste of talent sat on the bench - if he’s lucky. Interesting to see what he does at Swansea should he go there. The lack of creativity does worry me a little with Eliasson and Palmer both going, Szmodics too to a lesser extent I suppose. Leaves us only with Paterson as that genuine No.10 and real attacking playmaker. Hopefully he doesn’t get injured. If I’m looking at the positive, it’s that it probably means Liam Walsh is closer to being in the squad and you could maybe place him in that playmaker category.
  3. Bit of a shame as I’d like to have seen him given a chance. Definitely a player there but we’re so overloaded in his position, with players of a similar age too, if we can get a decent fee with a sell on clause then it makes sense all round. Good move for him I think and a clever signing by Luton. Good luck to him.
  4. I agree. Its strange. Especially as we had DaSlilva and Brunt as cover for potential left sided issues. Very strange that O’Dowda was in ahead of Morrell.
  5. Hopefully he was pissed off. Shows it means something to him and he’s up for it.
  6. I liked him, and think he’ll be a success in the right system but given the contract situation and the way we are looking to play, it’s clearly the best outcome for everyone.
  7. Yep 100%. And I think supporters will be far more accepting of failure/defeat if you take that approach.
  8. It's ironic isn't it, because he's often criticized for over-playing it and losing possession. Perhaps he was just playing his way into the game.
  9. I couldn't agree more, but we had the players on the pitch who had the energy, pace and quality to play in that manner. I just don't see us being able to play like that with Rowe/Hunt as Wingbacks, Weimann in Midfield and Diedhiou up front. It will be intriguing to see who he picks on Sunday.
  10. I must admit, I've never seen this "lack of work rate" that others have and I don't blame him, or any other player for not performing last season. Even when he did play well (e.g. Shrewsbury at home in the cup), he was bombed out for the next game. People often call out WBA away as an example of his poor performance. I went to that game with 3 non City fans. They went to the bar at half-time whilst I sulked and were genuinely shocked when they came back to see he had been hauled off - felt he was our only player who looked remotely like he'd seen a football before. Brownhill had a stinke
  11. I don't mind if he's stays. I like the guy, but in terms of ability and what he offers in terms of the way we want to play, he'd be 4th choice for me.
  12. It’s about so much more than just watching the game for me, I’d have no interest at all In going and probably won’t until we are back at full or near to full capacity.
  13. I don't think anyone has suggested that.....If KP is not in DHs plans, he needs to go. For his sake and the clubs. A complete waste of money. A significant transfer fee and I suspect not cheap in terms of wages.
  14. What happens if this system fails? Or key players are out and we have to switch systems? I hate the idea of square pegs in round holes, rarely good to watch. We do need to trim the squad and if he doesn't rate KP then get rid but we still need options to play in other ways. This is what makes me nervous when we hear talk of Eliasson going too.
  15. It’s also hard to tell when we don’t have anything like our first choice midfield playing isn’t it. I love JD, think he’s superb on his day and due to injuries, I don’t think we’ve seen him anywhere near his best since we signed him permanently. I just think due to his fitness issues, if we are sticking to this system, we could do with a natural backup. And a centre half as you rightly pointed out!
