    Kasey Palmer

    Just the point I was going to make as I’m rapidly scrolling down past all those comments. I would also add that he possibly should never have been in contention for the game, obviously he convinced LJ and other coaches that his head was in the right place, he possibly even was desperate to play for Afobe, but maybe more experienced heads would have left him out. At the best of times he tends to run hot and cold, add in the emotion of the loss of a child ( him being a parent himself) to someone he has said is a team mate and close friend, and I doubt he was right to play. Yes I am expecting loads to slate me saying he should be professional and put that aside, but that’s easier said than done. Afobe was there last night and no doubt talked to the players. I’m not us8ng it as an excuse but I believe it was a factor and affected more that just Palmer.
  2. That’s a bit random, did the thieves really look for cancelled events and work out there would be goodies there? Appalling as the gifts were clearly for a children’s event. Were they really so desperate for kids books, modelling clay and a couple of bottles of wine. Some people are just scum and Karma will bite.
  3. That’s pretty much what I am saying really. For someone who has been captain BW doesn’t seem to ever fit in. He’s a great bloke, very popular it seems amongst the players, but it’s one of those signings I’ve never full understood.
  4. The new one isn’t in post yet to be fair, let’s wait and see.
  5. Hasn’t he played more time for us at RB than in his chosen position, so if he is going to get game time it would be there as as you say he has better performing players ahead of him. How many minutes have these 3 (SS, BW & KS, and you might as well lump in Marley) got between them this season? It’s a fine line between resting a tiring player to replacing him with someone lacking so much match practice, to do so you would have to be assured their addition quality is worth the exchange. Korey yes, Bailey no and Szmodics is largely unknown to me.
  6. I didn’t think he was that, he just had no one moving for him to pass too. Weimann was not his usual busy self. Diedhiou was very much an isolated lone striker, but always wanted the ball and helped defensively as much as attacking. Millwall had sussed that if they cut off the threat of Ellisson we were stifled. Hunt in my opinion wasn’t the reason we looked so poor.
  7. Please let us know if you have a response, would be interesting to know. I expect the SLO will find your email on his desk when he starts next week.
  8. Totally agree. If the stock was there fans would buy it. Bobble hats are hugely popular at the moment, loads of clubs have them, didn’t Leicester or someone recently GIVE them out at a recent match....and we can’t even BUY something similar!
  9. Back in the days of darkness the lights in the stands used to be put on 5 or 10 mins before HT and left on the same length of time after. Same for the beginning and the end of the match. I thought it was a great signal when the lights went off to settle down and get on with the match, and at HT when the lights went on you knew you had 10 mins or so before the teams could go in and assess the situation and make changes etc. The lights were a natural way of dividing the match up. So much better for atmosphere and viewing.
  10. I think it was as much to get the crowd going as every fan ‘loves’ a Keeper doing this! I think we were out fought both both physically and mentally all over the pitch last night. Was it Millwall having the extra days rest after our hard Fulham game, was it all the Afobe emotion? Probably a bit of both. If we are to progress though we have to be able to cope with all types of football and at the moment we seem to not be able to impose our game on everybody but get sucked into theirs.
  11. We can turn it on against Fulham and can't be arsed against Millwall. Fair play to them though they sussed us out and wanted it more, and to hold on during our 10 minute spell, they deserved the win. For just about the first time ever I couldn't bring myself to clap the players for that performance afterwards.
  12. How nice is this tribute. Lovely touch from the players
  13. I didn’t realise until yesterday that he has a 1 yr old daughter too. Such a difficult time for them all, how heartbreaking.
  14. Dolly has brought this all together and done a fantastic job, thank you for taking the time. But, as others have said, what a great OTIB Family we are at times like this. Makes me so proud to be part of it. Thankfully times like this are rare and most have us cannot begin to comprehend what Benik and his family are dealing with, but we truly care as fellow human beings. Hopefully in future they can take some comfort from the words on the card along with their memories.
