  1. Will JET be in the crowd? https://youtu.be/6jyVQ20DxRA
  2. Blimey, that sounds like a weaker Man City side than the one that needed a stoppage time goal to beat us, both times.
  3. Don't waste your time. Posts like below show that their view is set in stone and reason is beyond them. The fact that Semenyo and Rodri would both bring different things to the side when used is very evidently far too rational a view for @Shtanley to comprehend here. O'Leary playing for a third of the season while Marinovic played one(?) time. Nope, LJ hates the academy players, someone else played once.
  4. No. In some cases it was the wrong choice to use Rodri, but not all. I could spell it out, but you are so entrenched in the view you already have that LJ despises AS that it would be a waste of my time until you learned to actually take a more balanced view.
  5. No it wasnt, yet you keep pushing this false narrative. The signing of Rodri was fully understandable. We had been short on strikers and the one we brought in over the summer had just had a potentially season ending injury. We needed to bring another person in still.
  6. My argument is that the top teams are unable to run away because the rest of the league is stronger. Even if the bottom few are weaker it is the bulk of the division that makes the difference. As for the teams that go up. This season alone should show that how they perform is near impossible to predict, Villa spent £100m and are fighting relegation, Norwich pissed the league and spent a bit and are struggling. Sheffield United were Norwich's only real competition and are fighting for Europe without spending a tonne. Out of the 3 teams who just left the Premier League, only 1 of them is in any position to fight for a return without the lottery of the playoffs, because the bulk of the Championship has got stronger.
  7. Oh **** off. I tried to debate and raised my point respectfully. You have responded with jibes at me twice. Absolutely no need for that
  8. Spoiling for an argument? I raised a point I disagreed with, explained why and provided evidence to back up my thought. When did that become "spoiling for an argument"?
  9. I'm not at all. And it's hardly a small point. You're saying the league is weak when all the evidence is that it is one of the strongest Championship leagues there has been for a long time. If it was a weak league, then arguments saying we are underachieving would have more validity. But it isn't.
  10. The Championship is stronger every single year. The fact no team has ran away in the league is evidence for it. If 2 teams run away from everyone else then those 2 sides are clearly much stronger than the rest. But Leeds and WBA are easily watchable for Fulham, who must have one of the strongest Championship squads ever, Brentford and Forest, the latter being a side that copied the Wolves-Mendes route of doing things, and look at how that worked for Wolves. People saying the Championship is weak is a lazy glance at it, usually just looking at the names of the teams and basing their opinion on that. It is a very strong league this year, one in which the relegated Premier League sides have struggled to get near the top of, and same for the Playoff finalists of last season. In a weak division the top team would piss all over everyone. That quite clearly hasn't happened.
  11. Just **** off with the bollocks like this.
  12. Really? You cant work out while Rodri was signed? 'Kinell. The signing was a perfectly sensible one. It didnt work out as well as we'd have hoped or liked, but that's what happens sometimes in football. After the Afobe injury we needed an extra body as cover and outside of the transfer window the only options are free agents.
  13. Sacking a manager who has you a point outside the playoffs because of a defeat to Shrewsbury would be seen as knee jerk.
  14. Last year in the Derby home game there was a long ball played to Fam who was being dragged back by 2 defenders and he still managed to lay the ball off. It was a decent lay off but the person on our left wing wasn't anticipating it and was a yard off the pace of getting to the ball. Who got the abuse from the person in the row behind me? Diedhiou of course, for being fouled and still managing to play a pass.
  15. Absolutely, wasn't making any comment on today's game, and the last one I saw any of was the Luton game, where we did actually play quite well, albeit against poor opposition. I was agreeing with the point that @Levellerwas making. When we have had bad results in the past but played well, the result was the most important thing, but when we play less well and get a good result it is "papering over the cracks" or something similar and the performance itself becomes the main thing. Hopefully today's result will be a shot in the arm, as you say. And with another game that has to be seen as a winnable one on Tuesday, it's a chance to have confidence running high going into next weekend's game.
