  1. I like that he was prepared to make changes early. Our midfield was terrible today, slippers on from the start, with the exception of KP who was probably our best player. I would have taken the other 3 off together if we had other options. The problem is that we didn’t and it wasn’t just them who didn’t turn up. He said that the subs put in an honest performance- I disagree. Lansbury was shockingly bad, worst player on the pitch. Semenyo worked hard and so did Pearson but without any product. Not surprising for a player on his debut, but Semenyo needs to sort his decision making out.
  2. Well that was poor. The BN bounce was pretty short lived. Very strange choices in terms of formation and substitutions which was a bit of a concern. Lansbury over Massengo? 3 strikers when QPR are passing through us and we can’t get the ball? Was desperately hoping that the players had got some confidence back and remembered how to pass to each other. Wrong - the number of times we overhit, underhit or just plain hit it straight out was unbelievable. Socking performances today from Mapps, Hunt, Fam, Wells and both Semenyo and Lansbury - why on earth is he at our club? Need t
  3. I'm going against the grain on this one and I wonder if there might be an element of rose tinted specs here. I don't rate him. And especially not in that midfield role. Yes, he has great energy and his work off the ball is excellent and he does sometimes provide a good outlet for a forward pass becasuse he'll run with it. But often as not, that run is down a blind alley and he ends up losing the ball. For me, as a midfield player you need to be able to pass, and that I don't think he can do very well, certainly not on a consistent basis. I'd like to see some pass stats but the number of
  4. Might be being a bit harsh there Dave I think. No one has been consistent this season in the squad with the exception maybe of Dan Bentley, who doesn't have to change the way he plays according to how the team is set up. Nagy if anything has been one of our most consistent outfield players even though he's been in and out of the team, played in numerous different midfield permutations, played in more advanced roles at times which clearly do not suit his game, and even I think covered at the back in one game. I do agree that sometimes he can give more - he has been guitly as has everyone els

    Good analysis, totally agree with you. The only one who showed a bit of composure and didn’t try to get rid immediately was Palmer who was too composed and consistently lost the ball and Bakinson when he came on who tried to find teammates but they were hiding. Bristol Post published this stat and those of individual players - Jack Hunt came out worst but that doesn’t tell the whole story even though he was terrible because whenever he got it he had no options. Was the masterpiece of these world class coaches to play route one Sunday league football because that’s what it looked like to me
  6. I can’t believe how much BS I’ve read on here this morning. Quite a few posters clearly need to have a good long look in the mirror and have stern words with themselves. First, very good to see SL come out and front up. Most owners would never do that and it’s good to see that he’s the one in charge and he’s taking responsibility for the DH mistake. What I get from the interview in terms of MA is that he’s in a supporting role, not the one having the final say. SL even I think mentioned MA doing the donkey work. If SL says our club is sustainable then of course it is - hes t
  7. Totally agree with that. The FA don't have a great record on giving clowns all sorts of jobs - the last Chairman Greg Clarke proves the point

    Saturday

    You would have thought that the board had some kind of contingency arrangement in place for appointing a new manager quickly - it can't have come as a shock to them to have needed to say goodbye to Holden. Might be a bit too much to ask to get someone in for this weekend but surely next week... For Sat, I'm hopeful we'll see a massive effort from the players to make up for the lack of it most have been making for the past few weeks. Rot needs to be stopped and a lot of them are playing for their future. Think we've looked less bad as a 4-4-2 this year, though that aint saying
  9. Thanks OTLB I needed a good laugh. Only just picked myself up off the floor... funniest thing I’ve seen in weeks
  10. I'm surprised he's going two up top. He's either confident that they will experience a miraculous finding of form or just living in hope that one will get on the end of something, or maybe both? I'd love for them to be able to work out how to play together but Fam has his pipe out and slippers on and Nakhi can't seem to see beyond that giant chip he has on his shoulder. The key for me though is that there has to be a link and a no.9 and I don't see either of them playing the link role effectively in their current mindset.

  12. We've looked less bad as a 4-4-2 over the last couple of months so I think we have to go with a variation on that tonight - making ourselves really hard to play through, and trying to ompensate for the weakness on the left side with an experienced player in there. 0-0 would be a good result given the hammering last outing and the massive black hole in confidence that must have left us with. Back to basics time with a low block, denying any space in our half and hitting them on the break. Bentley Vyner Kallas Mariappa Hunt Bakinson, Landsbury, Nagy, Patterson Semenyo
  13. Despite the club taking the p***, Holden being out of his depth, the football being dire and Ashton being a t*** yes because It’s City. We just have to pray that Landsdown comes to his senses in the next few months and corrects those mistakes.
  14. Stoke were the better side, Coventry who had just come up from League one dominated possession against us and would have won if they could score, against Wednesday we were actually half decent, and though I can’t even remember the forest game, really quoting those 4 games is the total definition of clutching at straws. Certainly wouldn’t suggest different- even if we had done ok in those 4 games, we’ve played shocking football for the vast majority of the season. As I said, had enough now, time for a change.
