  1. Needed more box entries....
  2. Why did O’Dowda throw a hospital ball to Henriksen, what was Fammy thinking, why did Bentley display parks goalkeeper handling skills, what went through Ashley Williams head? Simple questions, not rocket science is it?
  3. We gifted all three goals on a plate with countless individual errors. That in isolation is not LJ’s fault but how many home games of the standard we saw today can he get away with? Home games are literally a chore to watch!!!
  4. That throw in by O’Dowda. Add in the fact that he is 1000000% gutless and he would never represent the club again if I was in charge. If ever a player does not deserve to wear our shirt........:
  5. We have players like Paterson and Eliasson who are not great technical players for 90 minutes but can do technically great things in one off situations and this sees us through. We don’t possess great passers of the ball and our movement is, again, great in one off situations but generally poor. Therefore we don’t control the football in any game against good opposition but we are able to compete because we score goals out of nothing. Our first goal against Derby being a prime example......decent cross, great touch back by Dasilva and bang, goal out of nothing.
  6. I think so. Looking at that table we have the LOWEST possession away from home in the entire league and the second best away record. The team has been built and set up to soak up pressure, wait for “triggers” out of possession as LJ describes it and hit teams hard on the counter. It clearly works away from home where teams come at us and we are able to play our game. The issue I have is we are also in the bottom 6 of that table at home and our record reflects that. Teams are able to dominate possession at the Gate with the difference being they don’t have to be as gung ho as they might be expected to at home and can simply pass the ball around at will until an opening appears, just like Birmingham did (and Derby less successfully). We are not able to change our game and go at the better sides to counter this. Presumably for our home approach to change we need another three transfer windows to bring in the players to effect that!!!!
  7. In fairness to Big Dave he heads about 200 balls a season out of our penalty area from opposition corners alone. Obviously as a Centre Forward we aren’t going to be expecting a lot from him in terms of tracking back. Where I agree is if you have 4 players not putting a defensive shift in then the other seven have to do a mountain of work.
  8. Bentley and........................Benkovic perhaps given he’s a £13m player? He might also feel he could get a decent tune out of Elliasson. Nobody else. But Leeds are a better side than us so no surprise there.
  9. That’s great and with the proceeds he seems to have built a very one dimensional outfit that can only play on the break and only grind out a result, against all but the very worst teams at this level. As I have said before until the Investor actually gives a shit about reaching the Premiership (I just don’t think it’s that high on his priority list right now) or unless season ticket sales bomb the people moaning at LJ are wasting their breath.
  10. He would have been asked to play.....in the same way Dave was. If you don’t rate the guy that’s one thing but to criticise him for giving it a go when asked is bizarre.
  11. A professional football club with the number of players we have sitting on their arse on a Saturday should be able to get people up the motorway on a Saturday morning and send the ill players home. Unless these illnesses all appeared at mid-day.
  12. I think the fan base is at a crossroads. There’s a sizeable number that won’t have him, an equally sizeable number that think he’s God because we are in 7th and a large number of us who look at the current way of playing and wonder how long we want to watch it? I’m not sure whether the benefactor is that bothered though........
  13. That is a very fair question that should be put to him but we can’t slag Weimann off for giving it a go, however badly he may have played....
  14. Yeah but these lads have played Sunday Pub Football hungover so what’s the issue?
  15. Our way of playing at home will see season ticket sales and therefore crowds drop in the medium to long term, no two ways about that.
