  1. We shouldn't be taking risks of this nature atm imo, you'd think we'd learn't our lesson with Mawson. There's something not right with this guys personal life or attitude for him to be drifting like he is. Steer well clear for me.
  2. For a co comm on a two bob amateur stream think he was more than acceptable, though I will agree towards the end of the season he needed to reel his neck in a little. Put it this way, compared to Weimann sounding like a dead corpse, who would you prefer? I also heard him calling out a couple of players from time to time, defo not a sheep following the company line, unlike when they had both lead comms on the same game, absolutely dreadful!
  3. Doesn't surprise me. Although big strides have been made with understanding the mind for people themselves to better understand what might be going on in another, we still have a such a long way to go. You have to have a pretty low opinion of yourself to stoop to this level, whether it's on the football pitch or any other part of life. IMO, the perpetrator himself is suffering with his own issues, which a lot of the time is the case with abusers.
  4. Bloody hope it's just a tweak and not a full tear. If it is, means we'll have do his rehab so no chance of getting rid of the bloke!!
  5. Out of likes, but exactly this, best post I've seen in ages that addresses the bigger picture of where we are right now. You'd expect Ashton in Nov/Dec to be forthright with the guy that pays his wages about the possibility that he might be jumping ship, and to start planning regarding change of structure etc knowing the impending shit storm that could be happening this summer with transfers, change of manager etc. If Ashton is not talking to agents, the only reason i can think of why he is still here would be a) he's in the middle of negotiating new investment or b) headhunting
  6. This thread has made I larf. Maybe he should go full on WWE! Full on serial killer stare, then grab the mic and start growling incoherent sentences whilst contorting facial muscles that would make a champion gurner look ordinary!
  7. Thought you'd retired with a career ending injury Dave!?!! If not, sign him up, give him whatever he wants in the currency of free bets @Shtanley
  8. We were hardly 'competing' to get in the playoffs when he left. That season we were third from bottom in the shots pg/ shots OT pg table. This season we are bottom with the poorest stats by a country mile going back to 2012/13 (there aren't any records before then!!!!!), so hardly a glowing assessment of Johnson/Holden ball.
  9. Having to talk about the equivalent of 'watching paint dry' for almost the whole season at 60 odd minutes a pop is no mean feet Stan, I doff my cap to you sir, and your guests. Maybe you could think about getting someone on with a little more awareness regarding tactical observation. Don't mean to sound harsh, but your guests have limited knowledge when analysing a game. Someone like @Davefevs would be good, but I understand there maybe a transfer tug of war between other pods :laugh:!!?!?! Apart from that, you do a great job and it's much appreciated in terms of the time you all gi
  10. Think we should hold our nerve regarding Pearson. I did see some signs first half yesterday of improvement in our attacking principles, but only microscopic. I don't get this thing with Pearson being an 'old school manager'. Just because he looks hard as nails and would make your average night club bouncer meat head run a mile, doesn't mean to say he goes around the dressing room/training ground ranting and raving. If you did your research at the start, you'd know he is quite a well read, methodical thinker, who thinks quite deeply about the game. Anyone that goes out of their way to
  11. Exactly what I thought, the sheer arrogance of Perez and Glazer in that statement is beyond belief.
  12. Oh shit, watch the nuclear fall-out.............discuss. Im shocked tbh!!
  13. This ain't gonna happen. Like the post above, I believe this story is being used as a bargaining chip to gain a greater share of the pie for bigger clubs. UEFA should hold their nerve and call their bluff. If you don't like it, well, you can just **** off. If you try it on, we'll blow your ******* kneecaps off!! Time we had some legislation to put a stop to the greed of the few thinking they can just ride rough-shod over 150 years of sporting integrity and history. This ain't Yankee Blazers FC here where you can migrate a club from location to another like a magic trick. This is tribal ff
  14. Could it be we have a Bolasie situation on our hands here with Semenyo. Both looked very raw at an early age, only difference is Semenyo has played a lot more games. What was Bolasie, 23-24 when he left us? I always find it interesting when it comes to the new cycle of a season, that certain young players kick on massively. What is it about the summer break? Could it be they have a chance to reset and take a step back, looking at the bigger picture, processing subconsciously what is needed mentally. That coupled with more time to work on their game with the right coaching. Sometimes
  15. It's clear these players have mental hang-ups coached into them by the last two managers. For about 2-3 years they've been coached to not take risks at home, so changing the mental block they have is gonna take more then a couple of games to sort out and probably won't happen due to the contract situations come the summer. In the last 5-10 home games under Johnson, there were occasions when risk taking was needed, but once we took them our shape completely went and we were exposed massively on the counter attack. This was duly noted by messers Johnson and Holden and they quickly reverted
