  1. I think Roy made a good point about ‘improvement’ and ‘mid twenties’. Do I see Stones improving? Nope. In his comfort zone making the same old sloppy mistakes. Do I see Webster improving? Yes. Id say little to choose currently between them - excepting Stones having the experience - but Webster would have it for me on desire, concentration and potential to improve.
  2. Sterling and Kane, possibly add Maguire, and there you have our three players who are decent and can be counted on to deliver at a Championship. The rest, are over-hyped, obscenely paid wasters. If only an England Manager, for once, would look to build a team based on spirit, fight and determination rather than get trapped into picking the next Premier League starlet who, inevitably, are found out at international level. Those three players, with experienced, desperate and proud to play-for-the-shirt Championship players that had a team ethic would have performed far better than the mob we saw tonight.
  3. Collectively and individually awful. Appalling selection, tactics and player’s performance. Complacent and disinterested. Southgate...get a grip man.
  4. He did win a header. I saw it. Didn’t go to our player, but he definitely won it. I thought initially he was just being out-muscled. But he’s a decent unit. He was taller and more muscular than the guy on the left of Reading’s defence who was marking him when he was moved across the pitch. I have no idea what he brings to the party though. Looked like a rabbit in headlights. Maybe he will come good, the platform was there seemingly for him to make an impact. However, he’s fluffed his lines for whatever reason and, needs a break from first team action. Let’s hope it’s a form/confidence thing rather than his head being turned by Premier League interest. Time to give Watkins a second go. Actually, maybe that was LJs plan ... fans now desperate for Watkins to play. Clever stuff.
  5. Simply superb. Best Keeper I have seen down The Gate - which goes back to the days of Gibbo. If he can cut out that one rash decision per match (normally coming for a high ball through players), has the potential to be a worldie.
  6. Strange game. For the first 20 minutes I thought we were bordering sublime, fluent, flowing and in total control. Remaining 25 minutes of first half we got worse and worse. Half-time, thought we might sort a bit of a shape out. Nope, for the second-half, it genuinely looked like we had 2 players less than Reading. Beyond the back 5 and Hano we were, frankly, a total shambles. No attacking threat, non-existent midfield and punts upfield. How we escaped with a 1-0 was amazing. We did. Maybe, at last, this is our season.
  7. Bentley 8 Rowe 6 Moore 8 Williams 9 MoM Pereria 7 Brownhill 6 Messengo 8 Elliason 5 ODowda 4 Fammy 6 Wiemann 6 Subs Semenyo 2 Hunt 7 Palmer 6 Williams was just immense, top class, so assured and calm. Bentley and Moore pushing for MoM. Messengo was decent, Fammy improved but still not top end Championship. Semmenyo needs to be taken out of the spotlight and quick. O’Dowda, ain’t going to win the fans back with that type of performance. Bright first twenty, then disappeared. Unbelievably lacklustre second half. Lucky to get three points.
  8. Loved Cotts. Transformed a team with zero confidence into a unit with incredible spirit, containing some real talent. Just lost his way towards the end. Whether the fault was with the Board/SL/Backroom, particularly over that Summer’s transfer chaos, or his own bloody mindedness/ego, I’ve no idea. Will always be a hero in my mind. Think the reception he got at that Brum match demonstrated how thankful the majority of our fan base were for his efforts. Thanks Steve, you bought the pride back to the City.
  9. Dogs, well Golden Retrievers, are just the most adorable, loving, fun besties one could ever wish for.. ..... on the other hand c*ts are ****ing ‘orride. Apart from one, a stray young tabby , who shacked up in my partner’s garage and that’s only ‘cause it thought it was a dog.
  10. Never understood this issue with CCTV. Wasn’t it actually the Tories who wanted to scrap it a few years back due to the infringement on ‘civil liberties’. Bonkers. While waiting for my car to be serviced in Exeter recently, thought I’d pop into the Crown Court. It was a rape and battery charge, the whole Police case rested on CCTV evidence of the day of the attack and the months previous demonstrating the accused had regularly toured the area waiting for a single victim. I'll do a deal with ‘civil liberty’ advocates. You rid the Country of terrorists and criminals, then we can get rid of CCTV. Until then, I’m quite happy with the cost of my ‘civil liberty’ being infringed in the knowledge of the benefit that loads of ****holes being locked up and the place being a safer place because of that.
  11. Steve Claridge. Had wondered what happened to him. Was a media darling, did he do something to blot his copybook?
  12. Having no watched the ‘highlights’ on the BBC we seem to have majorly regressed. Looked like a bunch of 8 year old schoolboys chasing a ball around the pitch. Was it really THAT bad?
  13. Not saying all three in one window, although that would have been handy this Summer. Two would have been ideal. We could have made do with Fammy or Andy as the third - neither though really ticking the boxes for the type of striker our play demands and neither having the potential for Premier League. The youngsters ain’t ready yet in my opinion and should have been with an upper League 1 side this season. Could be argued that Benik filled one of the slots, leaving us with a need for one more striker. If he has a history of ACL troubles Benik was high risk though. Our approach to gamble with strikers is one we’ve tried for numerous seasons. Time for a change in strategy with our front-line transfer business.
  14. As a previous arch-critic, got to say I’m beginning to warm to the chap. Just seems though we have this continual blind spot over the need for three top-drawer strikers to mount and sustain a promotion push in this division. If we had three in now, we’d be odds-on for a promotion spot. This ‘make do and mend’ approach to our front line just ain’t good enough if we’re serious over a challenge. Yet another January window striker hunt, despite MAs fine words, given our woeful track record and inflated prices does not bode well for our chances.
  15. Ah, the speech/thought police are active today setting down today’s new benchmarks - which no doubt will change next year when the thought/word either becoming acceptable again to them. Is ‘white’ or ‘non-coloured’ the term to use today? Has there been a determination yet from the Liberal Elite whether the words/terms Brit, Pom, Limeys, Wurzel, small town in Wales are good, bad or indifferent and whether I should be deeply offended or not? I need to be told by these precious petals who make a career of being offended on other people’s behalf. Bigger things to worry about in my in my mind like the human species trashing the world’s habitats and wiping out entire species at an accelerating rate. Whatever rocks your boat though!
