  1. Admire the enthusiasm but please don't at this stage in the season. It's not the cup, goal difference could be crucial. And if you watched him the second time I'm not sure he didn't put our players off just as much. Anyone disagree?
  2. Think we are at a pivotal point with him this season - Johnson needs to show confidence in him and hope he responds. Otherwise I think it will be quite a while until we see him again. Shame because the weight on that pass was better than Nagy and Massengo had managed all night.
  3. You are one of the last people left to use the term "goalie" [perhaps Andy Townsend is the other] - long may it continue and thanks, I enjoy these write ups on who to watch out for.
  4. Glad you have mentioned the upside there is so much great stuff as well. European cup "leagues" mean much more football to watch between City games The new goal kick rule is better Multiple substitutions and bench sizes. The pitches and training facilities (including backroom specialists / coaches) Overseas players and managers - someone mentioned above the long tenure of UK managers in days gone by but we have seen what modern thinking can do - the "Wenger effect" and how more clubs can now challenge ie Blackburn, Leicester or even reach the Premier League (but perhaps not stay there) Community projects and sponsorships Edible food - how quickly we forget the greasy days gone by No longer expecting to be pelted with coins and other objects at away games No crushes in the East End Women in crowds Being able to see the match if you are young / short Scouting Ball Control / Fitness / Athleticism rather than fags at half time Longer player careers I'll take all that if it means putting up with a few halfwits looking at the phones all game
  5. I don't want to upset our prolific posters but I'm not sure OTIB is representative of twitter, you can see from the songs people use and past games they recall on OTIB that I suspect we have an older demographic in the main (who actually post). Twitters user base is much younger and transitory. I think its horses for courses and personally I still like the goal gifs.
  6. I have no facts so this post is ideal for OTIB but I would say the following players are quicker than average for their position: COD, J DaSilva, Eliasson, Nagy, Pereria, Adelukan. As others said it's tactics not personnel
  7. Personally I think this is a weak excuse - we have arguably strengthened for nearly every leaver. Nagy (not on last night admittedly) is better than Pack. Kalas is better than Flint by a country mile Williams is a good replacement for Webster (not the same at all but not enough reason to start conceding 4 goals - remember the start of the years vs Palace with Webster)?? Afobe is better than Reid Dasilva will be as good as Bryan If you argued injuries were our problem I would partially agree (but you would still hope we would have a preferred system rather than a weekly formation lottery)?
  8. One thing I am now sure of... there needs to be more polls on OTIB. Shall we have a poll to check??
  9. Agree would love to see him and Palmer behind a mobile striker. Get Nagy and Brownhill / Massengo to do the defensive work - it must create more chances than currently?
  10. Crikey who spat in your sandwich? Aside from Brom and Fulham - we have a fairly decent few months ahead and I really can't see us falling too far from the 6th spot. Especially as it assumes consistency elsewhere. If we did go on one of our losing streaks against these teams the clamour for Johnson's head would be deafening come Feb.
  11. Genuine question - our home form has largely been predictable and boring since, perhaps (if I had to pick a date) Bobby left. Ignoring the league position, because it's not Premier League or bust for me - what progress have we witnessed in style and entertainment at home? Too few shots on target and too few 90 minute performances have happened for what seems like a year - the stats someone put up about the number of 2 + goal wins in the last 2 seasons only adds weight to this?
  12. Is the midfield really good? we were over run at Cardiff, poor at Barnsley, non existent vs Wigan. We created far fewer clear chances again. Where is our attacking midfield? On today’s performance CO’D is not the answer to this question.
  13. But apart from that?
  14. Agree with others but Pereira was sloppy, poor control, poor lethargic distribution, no overlaps. he is not worth the agreed fee at the moment imo
