  1. None of it surprises me one bit. I’ve mentioned it previously, but that Watford game reminded me so much of the 5-0 defeat at Blackpool that led to Keith Millen leaving. The players sacked it in and, in my opinion, on both occasions let the manager down. The body language and application was woeful and that comes down to the XI on the pitch. Shortly after Derrick McInnes replaced Millen we went on a run of losing just three in 12 having been dreadful up until that point. So... rightly or wrongly it happens. It’s happened at our club before and will happen again. And that’s because
  2. A far better finisher than people give him credit for. Pretty good one-on-one and scores all types of goals. There can’t be many in our entire history who’ve scored more second-tier goals than him. Certainly the most in my lifetime - he went past Nicky Maynard’s tally tonight.
  3. Probably the best all-round midfield display we’ve put together since the opening four games. It was certainly Tyreeq’s best performance since the opening month. He and Nagy in particular completely bossed the first 60 minutes. Unbelievably, it’s only the second time Palmer, Bakinson and Nagy have all started together and the first time in a league game. The other was the 4-0 win over Northampton. Stick with those three please, Nigel.
  4. The midfield three have been superb tonight. Tyreeq’s best display since October time IMO.
  5. How many times have Adam Nagy and Tyreeq Bakinson started together @Davefevs? It’s a pairing I was crying out for months ago and they’re tearing it up tonight.
  6. All of this is why Nigel Pearson is such an interesting appointment. I just don’t see he and Mark Ashton being a long-term partnership so come the summer it’s likely to be a choice between the two for the owner. Assuming it’s gone relatively well, with fans back from August it’d be bold at best - utterly stupid at worst - if he doesn’t make the same choice as all of us.
  7. This has probably been done already, so apologies, but would make sense if he fell into the category of being unavailable but interested in the summer given he suffered with long Covid. Would explain the speed of it happening now, too.
  8. Mark Ashton remaining has been the one reason it’s been impossible to be that happy/excited about Dean Holden’s sacking, which personally I took no pleasure in seeing. The sooner this bullshitter gets out of our club, however, the better.
  9. Come to think of it, the 5-0 defeat at Blackpool in Keith Millen's final game wasn't ideal either. The players completely sacked it in that day as well.
  10. That 6-0 home defeat against Cardiff was horrendous for a whole host of reasons but I've definitely seen us play worse. One that springs to mind for me is a 5-1 loss at Blackpool in 2002, when we were going for a play-off place but completely bottled it and got blown away by a team in the bottom half. It was 5-0 inside about 49 minutes. That was the very worst of us under Danny Wilson, when we frequently failed to show up in the big games.
  11. I would love this purely because it’d annoy @Robbored and we could all do with a bloody good laugh at the moment.
  12. I don’t disagree with that. He needs to be held to account along with every other decision maker at the club. As I say, the personal stuff is just pretty misguided in my opinion. Let’s hope the next decision they make requires no criticism!
  13. Needless to say... I do hope you're right!
