  1. Very well put as expected. For me, a clumsy, lackadaisical centre-forward performance, and the incident you refer to with Wells when Fam just let Wells chase back after Fam’s own poor touch made me apoplectic. What worries me about that incident specifically is that it was allowed to go by unchecked. Kalas, Lansbury, even Nagy or Rowe should have been at him after that. Speaks volumes. The fact that he will not be here next season is (mostly) the clubs fault, the fact that he cannot apply himself whilst still here is his fault. The fact he is still getting picked is baffling. An
  2. Wells possibly, O’Dowda injured, Nagy hardly featured. Call me old fashioned but I do take a slightly different view on a player (Fam) that does not want to play for us next season.
  3. Not sure there is any other way of reacting to posts than to do so retrospectively. I was inspired when you started comparing our centre-forwards ability in the air to that of our goalkeeper, and then pleaded to debate with someone with “some semblance of a clue”. Phenomenal effort.
  4. Odd agenda you have here. Not sure what you are trying to achieve or prove, the guy has practically left our club. He plays (shouldn’t as we both agree) as a CENTRE-FORWARD. This odd rhetoric that he is brilliant because he can defend corners is bizarre. And he is not better in the air than Dan Bentley who admittedly has the advantage of being able to use his hands. Enough of this now. All the best.
  5. All friends here I thought. Thanks mate!
  6. Ok (not my friend). I am judging him as a centre-forward. His hold up play is not good enough. His ability in the air is not good enough. He has not scored since Feb 23rd. He was not one of our best players tonight. That’s it.
  7. If he was not playing (as you admit he shouldn’t be), then the judgement of him is irrelevant. The fact that he has not netted for 10+ games compounds this and hard to argue for an OOC non-committed, non-scoring striker my friend.
  8. The whole club is hard to like right now. I have spoken on here before about it but we are patronised beyond belief. The comms from the club particularly around social media is childish, infantile and generally treats the fans like idiots that will lap up any “positive”’news whatsoever. Unfortunately, the club underestimate the football intelligence of most of our fan base and lost a good chunk of faith from many of us with the arrogance and audacity of the appointment of Dean Holden. The hierarchy lost touch and thought they could do no wrong. Prior to this and peaking aro
  9. Hmmm ok. I probably need a bit more from you to understand your point of view when it is incredibly difficult to comprehend. Go well though mate, if you think Fam was one of our best out there tonight, let alone cannot question why he should even be playing then I am not sure I need to worry about getting my brain around anything. Wow.
  10. Are you ok mate? You seem to have become reduced to subtle insinuation riddle-themed mystery one-liners rather than coherent debate based on fact.
  11. Thanks for that. Useful response. He had not committed to the club, has no goals since Middlesbrough (a), on the 23rd Feb, and has shown very little desire for the cause. Hard to see how I am wrong really.
  12. It has to be Pearson to rebuild this shambles we have been left with after Steve Lansdown left us in the hands of the self-serving Mark Ashton who has pressed the ejector seat as soon as he ran us into the ground. My issue is, why have we not sealed it? Get the deal done with Pearson. What are we waiting for? We are currently rudderless after Ashton fell asleep at the wheel, and need some clarity asap.
  13. He really was not. His touch was abysmal, was slowing down into the press, and our best chance of the second half wasted with a sloppy pull-back. How he can be anywhere near the team when he is off in a month is a mystery.
  14. Fair and maybe my over the top irrational response to this all is an overspill of a wasted season of disaster on and off the pitch. Appreciate your response, and agree with most of it on balance.
  15. Maybe that is contextual against the relative strength of the youth international sides and not the depth of our squad.
