  1. And the much ridiculed “box entries” seems to me at least as useful as “shots on target” for the reasons you quote.
  2. So, while waiting to see if Nketiah would sign, presumably we should have signed a couple of other strikers as insurance? Much less risky and only a couple of extra salaries if our top target had arrived!
  3. Interesting, as most fans seem to feel they played much more fluid football than us. Their finishing was poor, but they got into shooting positions often. They also seemed to combine to play through the middle much better than we did. I thought Chaplin was excellent.
  4. Good point. It does sometimes seem that our squad is more of an investment portfolio than a team.
  5. Last 3 months = 20 points from 15 games. Not great, but not relegation form.
  6. But obviously all the sides around us are as inconsistent and unpredictable as we are - or they wouldn’t be on similar points. So they are just as likely to drop points as us.
  7. I wake up worrying we may be dire at home. But then I turn up anyway and sometimes we are bright as against Luton and Huddersfield. Cheer up. You could be a Derby fan.
  8. OK @Davefevs, I’m not sure if the flames emoji is a positive or negative review??!!
  9. Out of interest, just as a comparison, how would you feel if Alex Neil was sacked at Preston? They are a similar club to us, bankrolled by a billionaire, but comparatively modest spenders. They are widely admired on OTIB. They are currently one point and one place above us. But they too had a good start and are now on a poor run of form - worse than us in terms of points recently. Like ours, their fans are quite fickle. Read their forum, and you’ll find it’s very similar to OTIB. It’s not as poisonous re the manager and playing style, but there is a feeling that AN might be sacked. There is also resentment about the owner not spending more. They are not far off the playoffs, but the mood is negative. That’s how fans everywhere get after a run of poor form. We might feel PNE fans are overreacting. PNE fans - like Barnsley - might feel OTIB is overreacting. But we all seem to expect more of our own club than others do.
  10. And we don’t watch all the minutes other teams play - mostly highlights. You’ll probably find fans of other inconsistent teams feeling much the same .
  11. Interestingly, the general consensus is that he is doing a reasonable job and our expectations are too high. That’s probably how the football world sees it overall. Just what we think of other teams’ over critical fans, in fact.
  12. So ..... who do you want out, Lansdown or Johnson? Its not at all clear, though others assume you mean LJ.
  13. Um .. he’s extremely rich precisely BECAUSE he isn’t stupid.
  14. Seaplane from the Avon to the Severn. Job done.
