  1. Hang on, I thought MA only did interviews when we're winning every week. OTIB told me so.
  2. Others doing something as well doesn't mean it's ok to do something and of course it matters if it's true or not. (Note, not meaning to single you out by responding to you initially, I generally consider you a good poster) If it's untrue then it's people getting themselves worked up over absolutely nothing because they are choosing to misinterpret stuff to fit what they want to believe. If it's true then the concerns they have are entirely valid and a genuine reason for concern.
  3. "Step in" would probably have been better wording then. Equally, the players may not be as good as Kalas at this point in time, but that doesn't equal a negative effect. Player partnerships can make up for a drop off in quality of one individual. Man for man the team would be a little weaker (more so if we're talking Moore or Vyner), but would the negative effect be particularly big? I doubt it. A handful of points over the season perhaps.
  4. I didn't claim that any are as good as Kalas, though he isn't our best CB. But Wright, Baker and even Kelly are capable to a good degree in the Championship, so while not as good (at this point in time) they are all more than adequate cover for CB. I'd say that's probably reasonable strength in depth, if all of the players were at the level of Vyner or Moore at this point then it's just depth. And, yes we are fine for CBs, especially as Hunt and Pisano have shown they can perform there in a pinch, do we need more than 7 players at the club who are good in that position?
  5. Lots of twisting stuff there. The Matty Taylor comment I didn't take as a serious one- do you genuinely believe that to be the reason for the sub? Meeting S82, what's wrong with that? It's a manager/coach trying to work with a group to get a better atmosphere to lift the team. "Football club run by a soft drinks company" that's not strictly true is it... Red Bull will have bugger all say on the team other than their insistence on their policy of young players and a high energy style. Or do you think the CEO of Red Bull picks the team for each of the Red Bull clubs every Saturday? The decision to split game time between the goalkeepers to see who's best during a pivotal point of the season was a crap one, and is rightly being criticised, but let's not be dishonest with the other stuff.
  6. Colchester or Chesterfield (can't remember which is was) had 400 (10%) in the Atyeo and out sung 14000. Fleetwood were noisy with about 80 a couple of years ago. It's only our fans who have had issues making it loud, and that's when the acoustics excuse is brought out.
  7. Don't think the acoustics in it are great, but that doesn't mean it was a valid reason for a poor atmosphere from our fans in there when opposition fans in far smaller numbers were able to be loud.
  8. It was used as another reason/excuse for poor atmosphere when the redevelopment happened. "Can't make a good noise in the Atyeo, acoustics are crap" But then 400 Colchester or Chesterfield (I forgot which) fans in the Atyeo managed to out sing the whole ground in one game.
  9. It's those bloody cigarettes. Keep smoking them!
  10. Well no, not just Derby to consider. But they are the team currently 6th, thus the ones that at this point we need to catch.
  11. So knowing momentum and how we went on a storming run after beating Ipswich earlier this season (we gained 11 points on Leeds in about 6 games) you must agree that my counter example was equally valid. Particularly as the fixtures we have are against teams around us, so effectively 6 pointers.
  12. And so would I. I wasn't at any point saying a draw is a good result. But that it isn't the end of the world.
  13. I don't think we will make the playoffs, said that all season, but 3-4 bad results doesn't mean it's all over. Again though, games aren't just win or lose, a draw puts us above Derby.
  14. Well yes it would be recoverable, we have a game in hand and still have to play Derby. We play most of the team's above us still. So it's not just down to "mathematically possible" it is still in our own hands regardless of the result tonight. To say that failing to win (so not even losing) means we will be mid table (so not playoff hunt) is hyperbole. As was the OP's claim that tonight is "shit or bust".
  15. The hyperbole there is ridiculous. I might as well claim that a win today secures the title.
