    Unless you mean isolated incidents (backing off Bannan giving him too much room) then no I'm not joking. Unless you also mean seeing a game out, something lots of other teams do. It will obviously not work sometimes (Wigan for example) but it does work regularly and we have become quite good at it. Personally I'd rather we tried to see a 3-2 lead out than go all gung-ho for a 4th and risk conceding on the counter attack. But each to their own...
  2. Which was against West brom, a side similar to Derby in many respects. Our home record is so poor because we fail to break down sides who stick men behind the ball and give us little room. I heavily doubt Derby will do that, they'll know that they need to win to keep them in 6th and boost their play off chances and so they'll come at us, which is when we are at our best. In the run you've stated, we've only played 2 top 10 teams, Leeds (who were excellent) and West Brom (who we won against), the rest of the sides were lower mid table/ relegation strugglers and so they felt more inclined to play more defensively and hit us on the break, something we struggle against. Personally, I think our home record goes out the window on Saturday. We have a massive chance against a team who will go for it as well. It's going to be massive

    We then regained it in the away games against Forest, Sheffield united, Middlesbrough and Blackburn. We didn't set up 'far too negative' in any of those games, we just lack a centre midfielder who can change the game consistently, but one of those would set us back millions so it's up to the scouting team to try and find one for good value. We rarely drop deep either, it's in fact our willingness to go forward that's the reason behind many of our goals conceded. Yesterday their second goal was because our defensive line was too high and we hadn't dropped back sufficiently, then against reading we were regularly caught on the break. Investment has been made in the correct areas, just some of it hasn't paid off as of yet. I'm sure LJ has realised we need a centre midfielder as much as he realised we needed to change up our defence
  4. But Luke Steele is not in the same league as Niki. If we don't give him another year it's madness imo
  5. He was dreadful at Leeds although looked slightly better in the other couple of games he was involved in. He's still only young so has plenty of time to improve
  6. I see us 1 point off of 6th, knowing that if we win our remaining games we are in the play offs. How do you see it?
  7. No chance anyone will take him this summer. He's had one good half season in his career and his championship record is 9 in 50 whilst his league one record, before January, was 20 in 127, hardly inspiring... Teams will give him another year, see if he does anything of note and then the bidding war will start if so

    Good to see you back @Bicester Red Funny how you went missing for over a month until Friday though...
  9. We were champions in 1905/06, you're probably getting mixed up with the 1906/07 season when we were runners up in the first division!
  10. It was a rather pitiful attempt at humour... I'd imagine the team you are talking about play in red and white and have a man who lives in Knowle up front?
  11. There are, but they stop at hillsborough which is 15 minutes from the ground
  12. 65/66 season (Not that I remember it, we just finished high in the league that year...)
  13. You did well, my local wouldn't let me watch the away game at wba as both screens had Liverpool on. Ridiculous...
