  1. More to the point, would Chris Hughton ever come here? Can't see it.
  2. I thought collective punishment contravenes the Geneva convention?
  3. If they're looking for a vacant ground then the Avanhard Stadium in Pripyat is still unused. Better condition than their current dump too.
  4. I think you can just go with 6 substitutes if there is no available home grown player.... ...or am I being wooshed?
  5. LJ will never get any credit from some for the positive work he has been part of here.
  6. The knives are out, aren't they. The consensus on OTIB on player development was that everything was going well, when we were playing well. Vyner, Walsh, Morrell, O'Leary etc all having good loans, Moore, Eliasson developing here. As soon as we're on a bad run suddenly the loans are a bad thing and LJ hasn't given them a chance. He can't win.
  7. Touching on a your point about "going for it" and also the "poor frontline" Spudski mentioned - I do wonder how different the last 6 weeks or so would have been if we'd had Afobe available. I know our hopes should not be pinned on one player, but there were points in the games he played that we looked so fluid and dynamic. There is a knock on effect for those around him - Palmer, Weimann, Nagy all looked better with him in the side. Perhaps if we "go for it" in January and get the right sort of forward to replace him then the jigsaw pieces will fall into the correct places again. I have no idea who that signing should be. As an aside, I am a fan of Diedhiou and I still think he has not been played for any run of games alongside the right forward partner. If he'd played alongside Djuric or Taylor for a run of games I think we would have seen more out of him. His goal return has been decent under the circumstances. Maybe even Diedhiou & Afobe would have worked well too.
  8. Isn't his style supposed to be quite pragmatic, to put it lightly?
  9. You were the one that started the "are you at the game?" crap.
  10. Beating Bolton 6-0 on the day my son was born. England won the Six Nations that day too.
  11. I'd play Massengo there. His energy further forward would serve us well.
  12. Too backwards looking. Every time we have the ball we look backwards. Easy to defend a lead against. Some around me are saying that it looked like there was some sort of aggro as LJ went down the tunnel - I don't know how true this is, did anyone see anything?
  13. Absolutely. Our response has been far too pedestrian. We look backwards every time we have the ball.
  14. Am I alone in thinking Millwall are due some credit? They've stopped us playing any sort of game, only allowing Baker and Williams the ball. Pressed us well, done their homework on Eliasson and double marked him and move the ball quickly and with purpose. They look well organised to me.
  15. Last midfielder to do so was Scott Murray in 2005/6. Luke Wilkshire the year before too. Last central midfielder? No idea. Obviously since then we have had a central defender score 14 though.
  16. I voted yes for this reason. If it's Moore Williams Kalas and it frees us up further up the pitch then yes. If it's Baker Williams Wright and two holding midfielders then no thanks. For the record I don't think Baker or Wright are bad players at this level I just think we've moved on in our expectations since we signed them. They are not ball players.
  17. Stoke to beat Cardiff would be nice.
  18. I don't think anyone is suggesting that Rowe had a good game today, but you have been pro-COD and anti-Rowe all season. The bias is showing in this thread. Other players are equally as or more culpable for our failure to create anything going forward than a fairly isolated wing back.
  19. Well, where did you see it last?
  20. It's lucky the public transport system in Bristol is so good really, isn't it?
  21. I'll pay cash if someone would kindly lock this absolutely bizarre thread.
  22. I understand the Clarks Pie van will still be taking cash.
