  1. Walking in the Rain ... The Partridge Family
  2. We lost yesterday, so no points from one game is definitely relegation form. If we continue this way for the rest of the season we’ll get ... no more points. Sack the lot of them I say.
  3. It wasn’t much of a problem for the first four games of the season! Why are you not hopeful that Williams and Walsh will make a difference? Our top signing of the summer, plus one of last season’s outstanding EFL midfielders - what more do you want? Given our injury situation, it is hard to see what more Holden could have done. Kept Morrell? He didin’t even make the Luton team last night. Massengo looked out of his depth at the start of the season, and Nagy has been a complete flop for us since day one. Just have some patience and let’s see what we look like once Walsh and Williams are
  4. Give Ireland Back To The Irish ... Paul McCartney
  5. Your opinion of course, but why on earth does someone always have to be blamed for a negative result? We had chances in the first half, but in the second Bournemouth were the better team and won by a single goal. If I blame anyone for us losing it’s the opposition.
  6. How about just accepting that sometimes the opposition scores? If every goal was preventable, we’d never lose a match. It was a good goal, nicely set up and well taken. I’m sure the boys will analyse the move and learn from it.
  7. You seem to have forgotten the first half... Wonderful how everyone knows, in retrospect, what substitutions he should have made. Taking off Semenyo for more in midfield was a no-brainer. If you think that game was crying out for the introduction of Nagy with 20 minutes to go, then I’d like some of whatever you’re drinking! I can hardly think of a less suitable game for bringing Nagy on.
  8. I thought he ran himself into the ground tonight, or maybe I was watching a different game.
  9. Spot on mate. I thought we played well in the first half (including Paterson, who had a very good 45 minutes) but Bournemouth were almost unplayable in the second half and we did very well to hold them for 80 minutes. Given our injury problems, that was a creditable performance, but a disappointing result. Bournemouth looked a class outfit, and I think many teams will do a lot worse than lose to them by a single goal.
  10. Only from idiots on OTIB, surely... Or not fully fit and being nursed through until the next international break...
  11. And Alan Walsh’s 90th minute shot against Nottingham Forest goes in off the post and we reach a Wembley Final as a third division team... For what it’s worth, I think that beating Hull City would have been disastrous for the club. If our attempts to strengthen the team the following season in the Championship are anything to go by, what we might have done in the Premiership doesn’t bear thinking about. I suspect not only the lowest points total in Prem history, but a rapid descent to the fourth tier, a la Blackpool and Portsmouth.
  12. As with all conspiracy theories, just because people say them doesn’t make them true or even likely. If you present statistics suggesting that we have more injuries of a particular type than comparable clubs then there may be something to look at, but at the moment it’s just a case of people saying we have a lot of injuries so there must be something odd going on, and the club is probably to blame. Sportspeople get injured, end of. Ok, give us the rationale for your second paragraph. ‘More than bad luck’? Why?
  13. Really? Yes, Mercer had a bad injury, but who else? Just more nonsense conspiracy theory stuff.
  14. If you go into a match not properly warmed up then of course there’s a risk of injury early in the match, but no way the club could have done anything to prevent Weimann’s injury. Do you really think we don’t understand these things, that we don’t train properly, that we don’t have medical experts who know what to do? This is just another of the ridiculous conspiracy theories that plague society these days, and people shouldn’t fall for it. It’s a sad fact that Injuries to footballers happen, and you just have to live with it. Let’s hope we have enough cover until January.
