  1. I can confirm he is. Not by choice, just his dancing ability
  2. Great news. Having a bad rep for injured players at one club could be an unfortunate turn of events, but at three successive roles?! So dodgy. The optimist in me thinks this is stage one of Pearson’s upgrades he alluded to in the post match v Luton - about getting people out the club as important as new recruits. Seems somewhat coincidental that 48 hours on from those comments Rolls has gone. The realist in me thinks this could be Ashton throwing Rolls under the bus to protect his own reputation. His robust and vigorous process to review our injuries has reached a damning concl
  3. Lucky for those lucky wins at the start of the season for sure. No way are there worse teams in the league than us right now.
  4. Are you suggesting a rigorous 6 week interview process Dave?
  5. At some point we have to play better. I was hoping for that last week after the Rotherham no show, but Coventry were made to look like Man City. How did it get so bad that we were hopeful for a draw against a side 15th in the league?!
  6. Exactly my thoughts. They lost Watkins and Benrahma in the summer, and all their goals and assists. Replaced by Toney. That is excellent business and I expect them to do it again soon when Toney moves on. If we had a recognised system we’d find it far easier to recruit, and we’d also have a much better chance of getting it right. Szmodics, Eisa, Adelakun, Henrikson, Engvall, Eliasson, Watkins, Rodri, Marinovic, Woodrow, Leko, Kent, Diony, Brunt etc. Did a single one of those players improve us? Were they better than what we had? So much wasted money.
  7. absolutely no way these lot could perform for 90 mins
  8. I wasn’t expecting NP to turn us into world beaters overnight but I had hoped we’d at least compete. A similar effect that Mick McCarthy had on Cardiff. So fortunate for some of the scrappy points and wins we somehow got earlier in the season else we’d be right in it now. I don’t expect Barcelona, but I do expect the basics, especially from a Pearson side. Looking at how we’ve played this afternoon and recently, you’d have absolutely no idea we had a new manager, and certainly not one of Pearson’s pedigree.
  9. So you’re saying we’ll get a penalty? Sweet
  10. That is a truly awful goal to concede
  11. Nick Pope looks like an accident waiting to happen. Very comfortable this though, if not a little dull. Needs another goal
  12. Doesn’t sit well with me. Not for a player of his age, standard and likely wages. Seems unnecessary at best and potentially very damaging at worst. Im surprised Lansdown has sanctioned this. Its at odds with how he’s worked hard to ensure our club is perceived positively, and in a large part we’ve done very well and benefitted on that front in the last few years. The Ayling sale is widely attributed to SL not being best pleased of it making front page news. I’m not saying it’s the only reason we sold him, but it wouldn’t have helped. Now with the Women’s Aid statement, I’m intr
  13. I'd be gutted if Bentley went in the summer. As consistent and as good a GK as we are likely to get at this level. I'd much prefer we did all we could to hold onto him with a full pre-season and season under Nige, even if there is interest from elsewhere. Some of his saves have been outrageous and he's single-handedly kept us in 4 or 5 games this season. I'd dread to see our league position without those performances.
  14. He’d run out of players to throw under the bus by that point so chose his first born
