    Famara 6 Game Ban (Merged)

    Would a reduction be a possibility? He either did it or didn't I imagine, so either 0 or 6 game ban - can't see where the middle ground would come into it? he spat in the general direction maybe???

    Famara 6 Game Ban (Merged)

    If he's been charged, the FA should be able to pinpoint the exact second the gob leaves his lips. The vagueness of the timing gives hope that maybe this isn't an open and shut case?

    What was our best 11 of the season?

    Was thinking exactly the same thing - it would have been a 20-goal season for him if not for that lengthy injury. Can't remember how long it's been since Pato had a half-decent game?

    Who the hell have Reading borrowed their money from? Wonga?!

    Taxi for Frankie

    Sheff U knew exactly what his weakness was, which is why they pressed Frankie at every available opportunity. I’m not sure his usually excellent shot stopping makes up for his other deficiencies any more. As others say, time for an upgrade.

    Is Lee Johnson the right man for the job?

    It's the wins that turned into draws (Sunderland, Leeds, Hull) which is the reason we are not in the playoffs!

    Booing our players (Merged)

    I’d say no; at least he hasn’t been for quite a few months now. I think I preferred him at right back where he was a steady 6/10 at least. Not sure he’s hit even those heights since moving back inside.

    Panini World Cup Stickers.. good start

    Or use laststicker.com - I used it pretty effectively to complete the Brazil 2014 album.

    Football Italia documentary

    James Richardson was on the 'Quckly Kevin' podcast recently talking about his time, and how he got the job, on Football Italia. Worth a listen if you were a fan of the show.

    Just throwing this out there...

    Very good point. Our form in the first half of the season would have alerted other clubs to the likes of Flint, Bryan, Reid, Brownhill, etc... These are also the same squad of players responsible for the current form, so maybe that could work in our favour in a weird kind of way.

    At this level, I think the things that we are not good at (seeing games out, the dark arts, etc) take you a lot further than the things that we are good at (pretty one-touch football, in patches). Our pressing game looked great at times, but we can’t sustain it over 90 mins and I think teams worked that out long ago.
  12. We're very lucky that because of our starting position at the turn of the year it's looking like we'll end up a mid-table team, because we really have been showing relegation form for months now.
  13. We hit this wall every year, and it takes us a bloody long time to get around it every time.

    Awful Run of Form

    Couldn't agree more with this. For the third season running he's had a run of results that would have sees a lot of managers sacked. I'm not advocating that he should be sacked now as, as daored mentions, there are reasons out of his control that at least go some way to explaining the results. I just hope that next season Johnson can learn how to steady the ship once we get in a run like this. There are certain managers in this league, and we all know who they are, that would immediately shore up and solidify the team at even a sniff of getting on a bad run.

    Lack of striker options

    And this is the problem - being January (not pre/start of season) we needed a signing that could hit the ground running. By all accounts, he was out of sorts in the French league, so to ask him to adapt to Championship football and rediscover his form was a big ask. And it looks to have been too big an ask judging by the game time LJ trusts him with. It looks to be a waste of a signing I’m afraid.
