  1. As soon as they put pen to paper they are fully responsible for their performance. Obviously you could caveat a little if circumstances mean they have to play out of position for a time, or maybe play on through an injury. But even then, that would only be in being caught out as it's not true position or not up to speed due to the injury. And OK, personal circumstances can impact performances, but how many more excuses should they have in not being able to make a simple pass. Whatever you think of the manager there have been some truly dreadful performances and totally inexcusable (if not due to the above.) As the original poster said, looking up and having the simplest of passes intercepted or hit the opposing player because it's not been executed properly has happened so many times recently it's ridiculous. Where the manager needs to be tougher in these circumstances though is hauling them off quicker. Sometimes it doesn't appear to matter how badly someone looks to be playing. They are straight in the starting line up next game. Overall, LJ is undoubtedly struggling to find the right team for any match which is worrying but it doesn't help when at times, like against West Brom, your best defender on the pitch is your striker. It was comedy watching Diedhiou in that patch making clearance after clearance. I know it would seem idealistic but you would hope that if players had lost interest they would be busting a gut week in week out to get a decent move. We've made it clear enough that if you play well enough and a decent offer comes in we are open to it.
  2. My fifa weekend league
  3. I think his fitness levels have hit another level lately and he definitely looks leaner compared to when we first got him. It's so great to see the team battling from all over the pitch.
  4. Know what you mean, for me I think I feel we have good cover in midfield but sometimes you don't realise what you had until it's gone. Hopefully enough cover is in place. We miss some really good chances in games and hoping Wells sorts that.
  5. Yeah I think you could be right.
  6. If we manage to get this deal done and he plays Saturday, how many other players can you remember that have transferred clubs and immediately played against their former club?
  7. So now his valuation conveniently matches the Brownhill clause.....
  8. Another 1000 tickets on sale. Lower tier now open. Nahki for the winner, but who for?
  9. Yeah and this is what is so frustrating. We've been pretty poor overall in playing style, particularly at home. But somehow only 1 point off, and only 5 points off Brentford who really are playing some great football at the moment. As tough as the Championship is it sometimes feel like it would take so little to get over the bloody line. In terms of how we have been playing we feel miles off Brentford.
  10. Managerless and in the relegation zone we took on Middlesbrough at Ashton Gate who were top with 9 consecutive clean sheets. Incredibly, we did the double over them securing a 1 0 win with Wes Burns popping up in injury time. Fast forward to today and happily, despite a bad run and really not getting together overall, we are only 1 point off the playoffs right now. Bizarrely I really feel like we need this win on Saturday as much as we needed that one 4 years ago. Different circumstances but same urgency felt.
  11. At the moment I'm just glad he did sign a new contract so that we hopefully get something for him.
  12. I don't think we can risk starting Baker or Wright until they are totally fit. It would be pointless starting either only for them to come off and waste a substitution. Moore should be OK. He did well overall against Leeds, there were many poor performances against Leeds from players whom you would expect to start.
  13. Yeah I agree and I would still have had concerns about that chance creation with the same old midfield that simply hasn't done it these last few seasons even if we'd have signed the worlds best striker. But we've bought some midfielders, and let a couple go which should help enforce those changes, rather than reverting to type. Let's now hope that creativeness from midfield happens
