  1. I pains me to say it but I find myself agreeing with this. Never been a fan of Warnock on footballing and personality grounds but I don’t think football under NW would be any worse than what we are seeing most weeks at home. I believe that with the exception of a couple of positions the players are good enough but tactics and motivation clearly are not. Warnock until the end of the season then go again appeals to me.
  2. There’s plenty of people who want LJ out but they all probably realise SL won’t be making a change at this stage. SL made it clear last time there was an outcry for LJ to go that he didn’t give a hoot what us fans think. Meanwhile we pay more and more each season and see less and less entertainment. This is probably down to the year on year improvement measure we’ve adopted which leads to safety first, boring football and no real desire to go for it. I for one don’t care about finishing one place higher I just want to be entertained.
  3. LJ is a better manager when we have injuries and the team picks itself consistently. I dread a fully fit squad under LJ as he can’t resist over thinking, tinkering and trying to be over clever.

    The football at home on the whole has been dire under LJ. Year on year progression is great but football should be about passion and entertainment all I’m a afraid is lacking under LJ and his desire to set us up not to lose at home. Every year it’s the same, average football and season destroying bad runs. The guy clearly doesn’t know how to change, he has this unjustified confidence in his own ability with nothing to back it up. Going to home games has become habit and a good chance to meet up with friends first and foremost rather than any anticipation about what we will see on the pitch. It really is time to be brave and make a change. He’s taken us as far as he can. In any of his other businesses i bet SL would not put up with this.
  5. Lee should have gone at the end of last season, he’s made us into a consistent performing championship club but our business model is ruthless and we should be always looking to improve on what we have. We change players, backroom staff, scouts, the media department etc without sentimental when we feel it will take us forward. The head coach is no different. LJ has been good for our club but we are established now and I believe we have out grown him and it’s time to trade up and move on. Why be prepared to take hard decisions for the good of the club in every other area but not head coach.
  6. Football at home has been so poor under lee. Even when we’ve filled a play off spot, which is many times on his watch I’ve thought twice about going and that’s with a season ticket. Personally, whilst I appreciate the saying be careful what you wish for, I’d be happy if he went and we tried something different. We are far to negative and boring to watch 9 times out of ten at home which mostly sits with Lee and flirting with promotion then falling away each year isn’t sufficient reward for the constant dross served up.
  7. Given the score line and time remaining I did think the Pereira sub was a strange one.
  8. Hopefully we have a great window for once, sign a striker and Taylor can continue to put himself in the shop window at Oxford. If we don’t have a good window, personally I’d rather have Taylor on the bench than Rodri or Semenyo going into the last half of the season.
  9. I personally find facial recognition scary no matter where it’s used despite having ‘nothing to fear’. Use in countries with dubious human rights records, against people simply protesting scares the hell out of me. For systems like this to be acceptable you have to have complete faith in your government and also your future governments. I wonder if we were sitting in Hong Kong or Moscow whether we’d still be happy.
  10. For me Saturdays result shows how important it is to get as many of the injured players back and in contention. We looked tired and we need to have the option to freshen things up especially in midfield. Afobe is obviously a massive loss and is really impacting us as an attacking force. We just need to battle, keep picking up points and do all we can to stay in the mix until January and then get the right striker in to push on. I’ve been proud of how the team has coped with injuries so far and hoping Saturday was just an off day.
  11. I’m not that gutted at a point v Brentford. I do wonder if the injuries, no real left back, youngsters being played more than we probably planned for and tiredness is catching up with us though. I think the points to date with the players available has been brilliant but loosing Kalas, Nagy, Afobe and Dasilva would catch most teams out in the end. The number of draws creeping into our results is cause for concern.
  12. Dwight Gayle on loan. He’s got about 59 goals and 16 assists in 100 games at this level. No one can guarantee you goals but with him it’s as nailed on as you can get. If we are in a playoff spot with a sniff of automatic and there’s a chance that he would be interested I’d like to think that we will have learned lessons from previous years, spend some of the Webster cash on the loan fee and the 40k per week wages and give LJ the tools needed for that final push
  13. Gutted with this news. No matter how you package it we are a weaker team today then we were on Monday. Let’s hope the few strikers we have left stay suspension and injury free. Frustrating as it felt like this season things were falling into place. Nothing we can do about it now except regroup and go again.
  14. If only there was an easier way round it!
